First of all I will say I like this place
However things are weird at first
There is no address so you will have to go with Steve to show you the way ( you will never find it yourself) and the first time you leave make some mental notes or you will never find your way back. We took pictures
The property is beautiful and well kept but like a fortress it makes you think your in a very bad area. However we never felt threatened or uncomfortable. In fact the people are very friendly and helpful
The food in the fridge was very helpful
Because we were very hungry the first night and didn't want to go out
Paper towels , foil and scrub pad would have been nice
The beach is nice but it was way to rough
To swim there I would recemend renting a car. When out try a doubles or chicken rolie
They are good local fast food
Have fun but lock the gate

“Amazing Location - Beautiful Amenities”
Reviewed February 3, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Pride of Courland was gorgeous and we would consider the stay again. No place is absolutely perfect, and no reasonable person should expect perfection. Great place and great people!

Benefits:
--> Location, Location, Location - lovely beach front, well kept grounds and private pool. The kitchen was very reasonable and well stocked. Theadora is very nice and was extremely helpful. Steve also was very helpful and extremely tolerant when I mistakenly had our departure for the airport later than intended.
--> Crime was not a concern at all. We walked four times to Prospect on the road at night. And while there were some concerns about the speed of cars driving near us. We quickly acclimated. We met Scouty (Aka: Anson Alfred) who was the local (hopeful) singing artist and very nice. Everyone was very kind and almost always greeted us. The next door neighbor Curtis makes nice carvings and we bought three (ensure you have him varnish the pieces for easy export). At first we were nervous about locals sitting outside the gate on the rocks of the beach, but then we realized they were just enjoying their day and it was not a concern.

Recommendations:
--> Paper towels would of been nice. (No worries, we bought some.)
--> Aluminum foil would be nice (to keep the toaster oven cleaner).
--> A scrub sponge would be nice (although we did find one in the gutter outside on the patio). No worries, we bought one.
--> Apartment contacts were unclear. For sure, Steve and Theadora are the two main contacts for everything.
--> A blender would be awesome.
--> Provide food, shopping and excursion recommendations (it was trial and error for us; but only one error).

Tips:
--> Theadora had trouble reaching us the first part of the week (we were busy with excursions); reach out to her to establish expectations.
--> Don't set the alarm. The instructions to disable the alarm were unclear and the code to turn off the alarm was unavailable. We set off the alarm due to the unclear instructions to disable the alarm. Calling Steve fixed everything, but even he wasn't sure about how to turn off the alarm at first (but finally Steve figured out the right code). We asked our neighbors and they also were unclear about disabling the alarm and did not have a remote to turn off the alarm.
--> We had trouble with the gate working from the remote, however we used the gate's door instead with no trouble. We then chose to meet all drivers out at the curb (easier anyway).
--> I would not recommend this property to multiple couples. Only families and single couples. To get to the extra bedroom, one MUST pass directly through the main bedroom.
--> Some taxi's are in the phone (Anthony - Aka: Washington or Washy was excellent)
--> If you like local customs, go to Sunday School in Buccoo!!!!!!! It is a Soca event with food and dancing. Prepare to stay up late, the real party doesn't start until midnight. Do be wary of possible crime here... just be careful.
--> Eat at The Fish Pot (located in Prospect) - do make reservations
--> Eat at Fries (on the corner in Prospect) - excellent owners/chefs and awesome local food.
--> Eat at the stand right next to the grocery store in Prospect for pure awesome local food.
--> Peter Cox is excellent for tours
--> Island Girl is excellent for a Catamaran / Snorkeling trip
--> Big Dougie (Frontier Divers) is outstanding and a local company for scuba diving. Frontier Divers is safe (for newbies), professional and super friendly.

“Wonderful, clean, great staff, good location.”
Reviewed November 7, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at Pride of Courland for almost three weeks. We liked the location - in a village between two nice beaches. We bought fruit and essentials in the village and also ate at a little restaurant that had local food and a couple of tables. We also walked over to Pleasant Prospect and ate at restaurants in that area.
We particularly appreciated Theadora, the housekeeper, (cook - if you want her to), and general "make sure you get what you need" person. She cooked a couple of delicious meals for us, was generous in helping us find reliable guides for the excursions that we wanted, and generally, made sure that we were taken care of. She is a gem. The other staff were also efficient, pleasant, and helpful.

“Beautiful setting but like a secure compound”
Reviewed October 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A lovely well maintained apartment with great views and good amenities. The downside was the emphatic security measures with burglar alarms inside and out; an electric gate, panic button inside and heavy iron internal security gates(inside the main door. )There's a sign on the wall inside warning you about intruders having been into the house at night from the beach! I had to ask to be talked through setting all these devices and why they were necessary. The apartments are about 10 minutes walk from the nearest basic shop and you really need a car to get about. We didn't feel safe there which may just be a perception but spoilt our stay. Foreign Office advice supports avoiding remote areas or empty beaches in Tobago. The apartment info is in Danish so some English translations would be useful. I'd say this place is fine if you're in a big older family group but not on your own. Support staff were lovely and helpful

Thanks for your review
Tobago is a paradise and compared to many other islands in the Caribbean the crimerate is still low, but it is not zero.
We therefore on behalf of our guests take precautions and use
modern systems to avoid incidents like breakins and robberies and we hope it is a sucure compound. Most places are gated and secured with alarmsystems. You can like or dislike it, but that how the
word is today - even your own home.

Kind regards

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed July 24, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Wonderful place to stay with very good facilities and well maintained. Pick-up from the airport was a great help and the assistance from the housekeeper was excellent and very helpful. The kitchen is well equipped and easy in use.
The property has many plants (flowers) and trees (wildlife). At the beach snorkelling is easy and safe. Very quite surrounding environment.

Surrounding beaches are in walking distance, and renting a car was easy and fast via the housekeeper. Having a pool on the property allows you to enjoy the more relaxing days. Shops were close by and different restaurants were within walking distance. Do rent a car and travel the Island as there is a lot to see and experience.

Well equipped self catering appt. Large bathroom & good cooking area in the main room. Second bedroom opens off main bedroom but not a problem for us. Gate directly onto beach from garden. Stein & Edel were very welcoming. Good location away from airport. Car is recommended but hire rates & petrol cheap.

“A beautiful apartment on a stunning island”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from our two week holiday in Tobago staying at Pride of Courland in the lovely Blue Bird apartment.

Everything was very well organised from our pick-up by Steve of Island Investments at Crown Point airport on arrival, to our departure 14 days later.

The apartments are very comfortable and well equipped and had everything we needed for a relaxing self-catering stay with good quality furnishings and fittings. Theodora, who comes in to clean etc. is exceptional. She cooked us a typical local meal one evening of pork stew with crab dumplings (yummy) as well as organising a fishing trip with a local fisherman in his boat for my husband.

We took advantage of the reasonably priced car hire on offer and toured all around the beautiful island of Tobago during our stay. We would recommend hiring one of Washie's cars in order to get the full flavour of the island and of course for getting to the supermarket for your food shopping. We used the Penny Savers supermarket, which had everything we needed. My only criticism of Penny Savers is, the staff seem so miserable, they never smile, which is so different to all the other shopkeepers and stall holders we encountered who were absolutely charming.

A barbeque is provided for each of the apartments and we tended to barbeque one night and then eat out the next. There are many exceptional restaurants to choose from close to the apartments, our personal favourite being The Shirvan Watermill. The Seahorse Inn has lovely food but we found the service is somewhat lacking. The Fishpot is also a very good and is a less formal option.

We have visited Tobago on many other occasions but our visit to Blue Bird apartment in Pride of Courland will live long in our memories and we would definitely recommend it to friends and family – Fantastic.
