    About this property

    Chachalaca Villa | Eco Lovers Rain Forest Getaway

    Vacation home in Charlotteville with kitchen and balcony
    Thoughtfully updated 3 bedroom villa perched on Flagstaff hill with stunning views of Man O'War bay. We are located in the rain forest of Eastern Tobago. Perfect for nature lovers and divers. A few minutes drive down to the village leads right to the beach. Updates include new stainless steel appliances, new beds & linens, smart tv, WiFi, Bluetooth speakers, lighting, fixtures, etc. The amenities you’d expect in the city, in the rain forest. However, you’ll find it hard to leave the veranda’s breathtaking views. We try to keep our villa as eco friendly as possible. We use a cistern system which collects rain water. Filtered water is also available from the refrigerator and is completely safe to drink. Our house keeper uses green cleaning products to maintain the villa. (However, be advised if guests leave any non-green dish soap, for example, she will not throw away) Our villa is located in the rain forest reserve of Eastern Tobago. To some sleeping in the rain forest is a dream. We sleep with just the veranda screens closed at night so we can hear all the sounds of the rain forest. However, you will see a whole world of nature around you. Many times crickets, beetles, hummingbirds, and lizards like to poke their heads in and say hello especially when you leave veranda doors open during the day, which we all love to do. So if you’re frightened easily, the rain forest might not be for you. But for eco lovers this villa is a dream! The villa does have A/C units in the lower level bedrooms, but you’ll find with the cool breeze from being perched on our hill that nights can even sometimes get almost chilly. We provide extra blankets as well just in case. Generally rooms are the perfect temperature at night and all bedrooms have new ceiling fans. For travelers with young children: Be advised that 2 lower level bedrooms are accessible by exterior stairway down to back veranda. This layout can be more challenging for young guests requiring assistance at night. Exterior lights are on a timer and switch on as soon as evening arrives, so property is well lit and comfortable to walk about in the evening.
    Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas.
    The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

    5/5 Excellent

      Isolated and quiet, except for the Chachalaca!

      A great place to lime and veg out for a few days. Very well equipped with new appliances. Only thing missing was a hammock to while away the hours. Your own car is definitely needed, even just to go down to the beach, as you are at an elevation of over 750 feet.

      5/5 Excellent

        Private paradise

        Our stay was better than expected. Private, phenomenal view from the deck, wonderful birding off the deck and in the neighborhood, short ride to Charlotteville or Speyside, comfortable and spacious inside. This was a good base to visit some of the best beaches on Tobago and get to the Main Ridge preserve and Little Tobago. We would stay again if we return.

          would have been fine if the wi-fi & TV had not gone out

          A tree fell on their cable TV line so we had zero TV or wi-fi & since it rained like crazy, there was nothing to do (like spending time at the beaches). Bring books to read in case that happens to you (the location is scenic & peaceful, but not a lot to do nearby).

          5/5 Excellent

            Wonderful!

            We loved staying at the villa! The place is exactly as described. I agree with the owners honest assessment that the villa is not for everyone, as it is not suitable for younger kids. you do need your own transportation and be comfortable with being in a setting away from it all. Having said that we were a family of five with three children over the age of 10 and we absolutely loved our stay there!

            5/5 Excellent
