“Romance, Beauty, Private”

The property and view from this ideal romantic get-away were ideal. If one is looking for quiet, beauty and a place to be 'away from it all' there is no need to look further. However, if you are looking for a little day or night-life this is not the place for you. We were looking for romantic beauty and we could not have been happier. We were greeted by Marta Z and her husband, the owners of this self-designed home in Bloody Bay. The iron gates that lock this 3-tiered property were open when we arrived and we we were overwhelmed by the beauty in front of us. The top two tiers of the property are have manicured lawns where indigenous trees and plants have been highlighted to show their natural beauty. Walking down hill to the house (which was a bit slow going in the dark as their is no electric lights - we used flashlights provided) we know we have found the perfect place to escape the world. Marta fills us with information about the island - where to eat, swim, hike, and find all sorts of activities, which she has printed out in detail as we look around.
We enter the open-aired porch that surrounds 1/2 of the house through a locked door to the living area. Near the entrance, to one side of the porch is a large-screened-in eating area (seating for at least 8), while a wall to the house in on our other side. Within 10 steps we see that this 1 bedroom home is just outside the rainforest and overlooks Dead Man's Bay. We can hear the ocean below us, the sky is blue, the owners are friendly and we can't believe all of this has come at a more than reasonable price.
We entered the house from the porch through open wooden folding doors which make up the walls to the 1/2+ part of the house with exquisite views. A large porch adorned with hammocks, a coffee table and two chairs surrounds this half of the house. The house itself has 1 bedroom, 1 1/2 baths, a kitchen that's open to a living area and has a stool level counter top for eating. While not for our use, there is access to a loft area by a built-in wooden ladder. The one thing that could have been improved was the seating in the living area - which consisted of a bed for a third person. While a vacation to Tobago is during the sunny season, we came close to the rainy season and it did rain for a few hours on some days. It would have been nice to have a more comfortable living area.
Marta explained which days to expect the cleaning person, who was delightful, showed us where there were books, games and videos for our use.
For a romantic and or quiet holiday, i would not only recommend you stay here, but suggest it. If you are looking for a little more activity this is not the place. Coaster, a small touristy area, is 20 minutes away, and Scarborough, the major port, is an hour and a half away. There is little if any public transportation, and the roads (driving on the left) are comparable to the Amalfi Coast in Italy - treacherous curves, sharp turns, with a long drop the the ocean below. While I was happy to drive at night, my partner was not, and we ate dinner each night at the restaurant next door and were taken in by the owners as new friends. The food was delicious, authentic, we were asked each morning what we wanted for dinner.
While there is access to Dead Man's Bay by a steep path, it is not realistic to use it to go to the beach. It is much easier to drive five minutes to Bloody Bay, or 15 minutes on the road.
