|Villa LaHay, Tobago
Private Villa Rental
|Reviews and comments from our Guest Book|
had an amazing time staying at this Villa on Tobago! The pictures don't
even do it justice - the views from the house are absolutely
breathtaking. The house itself is huge and was perfect for our family
of 7. The pool was just the right size for our three kids to play in
for hours while we watched them from the balcony with views of the lush
garden and the Caribbean below. The housekeeper, Christiana and the
gardener, Carlton, took great care of us and were super friendly. Judy,
the property manager, made sure we felt welcome and gave us lots of
great tips on where to go on the island. I would definitely recommend
this Villa to anyone visiting Tobago!"
Villa is comfortable, beautiful, in an easy location (must rent a car,
though), with stunning views and an amazing staff. The housekeeper,
gardener and property manager were awesome to work with. A view small
issues with the drain were attended to immediately, and every question
or need addressed with a positive and helpful attitude. The beds were
super comfy, the Villa immaculate and the environment perfect for
relaxing. Pictures do not do it justice. Walking distance to a nice
beach (with no facilities) or an easy drive to the more touristy
beaches with facilities. I recommend for anyone with a big group who is
not expecting, or disiring of an expensive resort type of experience.
This is like a family "home away from home" type of vacation. Lush
gardens with all types of fruit trees. I highly recommend. Although
I've rated this a 5 there are a few lights and things that are bare
bulbs and could probablyuse a little TLC, but nothing major and
certainly nothing that would prevent me from returning!"
slice of Paradise hidden away in Tobago: My sister and I plan a reunion
every year with our families, and we chose Villa LaHay in Tobago as our
rendezvous spot this year. I hope my review does it justice. The Villa
is even more beautiful in reality than the pictures could ever convey.
The decor is a rustic Mexican theme which was very tasteful and
comfortable. The Villa is quite large with 3 full sized Rooms and the
configuration is conducive for sharing. The TV Room also has a daybed
with an extra mattress, which was perfect for the teens in our group.
The housekeeper came and cleaned up daily, and the house was always
well maintained. We were initially worried about the pool, as the
pictures make it seem that it is so close to the house. We had small
children in our midst. we were pleasantly surprised, that the pool was
actually in the lower level from the living and dining areas. The
safety issue was solved by simply not opening the doors in the lower
level. The pool was also a good size unlike what we had expected from
the pictures. The children spent hours on end in the pool from morning
till night time. The adults enjoyed the Jacuzzi/Hot tub in the cool of
the night. The Villa also supplied ample beach towels so we were never
in need of any. There were a few minor hiccups - leaks, lighting
issues, but they were immediately addressed. My only two complaints
which are minor and can be addressed very easily, was that in the
evening, especially due to the rainy season, the open style of the
house, invited many bugs. The issue can easily be solved, by putting a
mesh by the window openings. The other was that the kitchen was not
well equipped with utensils. There were hardly any knifes for cutting
and we ended up buying a can opener. I have been to many villas in the
past, and they all suffer from guests pilfering their utensils, so I
don't blame the owners for keeping it bare bones. We left the can
openerfor the Villa, in good faith that it will be there when we return
in the future! The owners were very professional and communicated with
us regarding arrivals, and even helped with getting us transportation
from the port. Other than the issues with the bugs, the Villa was very
comfortable, the staff were nice and welcoming, the location is
heavenly - beautiful panoramic views to the Reef. We will be returning
Villa is remarkable. This is definitely a place to LaHay. My friends
and i stayed here last yearand we had the best possible vacation ever.
The Owners were very professional and efficient in the way they carried
out their business. The staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, this
house had everything you need to have an enjoyable vacation. The pool
was beautiful, just the right size to fit our group of 6. The Jacuzzi
was heavenly, we couldn't stay out of it. i stayed in a few places in
Tobago before, but non quite like this. Its a home away from home. The
atmosphere was so warm and inviting , the surrounding environment at
nights were quiet and gave a sense of calmness. My friends talk about
this vacation every time Tobago comes up and we cant wait to revisit
here once more. I would give this place a 5 star rating."
"Hi Linda, the Villa was beautiful I definitely will be staying here in the future!"
wanted to let you know the house was totally the best that I have
stayed in. You guys have the perfect get away house in Tobago. Just
wanted to let you know that some of the plugs and lights in the house
is not working but it was still enjoyable."
Villa is set in a very scenic location in the hills of Tobago with
beautiful scenery and lush landscape and an abundance of Mango's,
avocando's and fruits to keep children and adults munching all day. We
went as two families four adults and five children aged between 11 and
"Thank you for sharing your lovely Villa with us for our July holiday.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Villa. Your housekeperand gardener were very
professional, kind and accommodating. We do look forward to future
visits at the Villa. Best regards"
"It's been so
wonderful!!! We enjoyed it so much to be here. We felt like home in
this beautiful house. Thank you!!! Special thanks to Carlton and
Christiana - they were so friendly, helpful and nice."
week in beautiful surroundings. What a view when washing up! Managed to
sample many local delicacies and had a great cooking lession of chicken
casserole from Christiana. It included 5 herbs from her garden 4 of
which I'd never seen before. Next time I'll make sure I come when the
magos are ripe."
"We loved too much
Tobago and Villa LaHay! The sea view is wonderful and also the big
kitchen and dining and sofa's all in one big floor. The
bedrooms are big and conditioned air is a good thing
in August in
Tobago. Villa Lahay is really lovely with a marvellous garden with
tropical fruit and many birds. Only one problem with the shower
downstair, I hope now they solved it. Thank you for a paradise
holiday! Remember to rent a car ;)."
family and I stayed at the Villa it was very nice. Gisela, the
gardnener and the house keeper they were very kind and helpful, we
truly enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. The only concern that we had was
the stairs needed to be designed better for toddler, elderly and the
bathroom were too small. Apart from that our stay was very enjoyable at
family and I stayed at Villa Lahay for a three day getaway. The Villa
was clean and the grounds well maintained. All the bedrooms were
spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the jacuzzi, especially in the
evenings. The view was amazing and we mostly enjoyed this from the
living/dining room area. Staff were friendly and helpful. The owners
were very accomodating. I would stay here again and would not hesitate
to recommend the villa to friends and family."
wanted to let you know that we had a great time in Tobago. The Villa
was excellent and the staff was very helpful and courteous. We will
recommend this Villa to our friends in the future. Thank you."
at this Villa was a wonderful experience, the manager and her son were
very accommodating. we were unable to find the Villa and they came out
and met us to bring us in. The land was beautiful..... the pool was
amazing, very relaxing time in paradise."
writing to let you know that I had the most enjoyable birthday weekend
at your Tobago Villa. I must say that was indeed the most relaxing
weekend and I can assure that my friends equally enjoyed it as much as
I did. Your staff were most welcoming, Judy met us at the airport on
time and Christiana showed us around upon our arrival. Your gardener
and pool guys were most friendly as well. The scenery at the Villa,
well words cannot describe!! I will definitely be returning in the very
near future, I look forward to that. Thank you!!
Linda and Thomas, we had such a wonderful time at your Villa on
Tobago!! The rooms, the view, the garden; they were all so beautiful...
Some personal highlights: The stunning sunsets over a glass of wine (or
a bottle of carib). The delicious BBQ with self caught Baracuda. Waking
up each morning, sitting at the kitchenbar with coffee, fresh
grapefruit juice and scrambled eggs while playing Dutch baby songs for
our baby with the IPod doc. Carlton's tour through the tropical garden;
we never tasted such an aquacate before. The last dive in the swimming
pool just before going to bed. The inspiring, vivid Church service at
the village. Thank you Carlton and Christiana for this fantastic time!
Hopefully we will be back!! All the best"
"We had another great time at Lahay. We all love it
so much, thank you. I am sure you will hear from me again next year."
stay at villa Lahay was truly wonderful. The facility and ambience was
truly breathtaking. The privacy afforded us plenty time as a family to
sozialize and continue bonding. We had a grat time and it's our
intention to visit again, maybe for a slightly longer period. We will
also recommend Villa Lahay to other family members and friends so that
they too can share in our experience. Thanks to all the persons who
helped in some way to make our stay here as pleasentable and easy as it
was. May god continue to richly bless you all."
"We had a very
enjoyable and relaxing holiday at Villa LaHay Tobago. The views were
magnificent, the sunsets, spectacular! The staff were very amicable and
courteous. This will be our first choice for accommodation the next we
come to Tobago."
LaHay was everything we hoped it would be and more. My family and I
truly loved this elegant and comfortably appointed villa, it's lovely
grounds, pool and jacuzzi, the beautiful ocean view and the villa's
convenient location a short 5-minute drive from a lovely beach. We were
warmly welcomed by the property manager, who kindly met us on our
arrival in Tobago and also gave us excellent advice about events and
places to see. The villa was clean, well maintained and very
comfortable. The housekeeper and groundskeeper also took excellent care
of us during our stay. I would absolutely recommend this villa to
anyone, and I look forward to Tobago and Villa Lahay for future
"Great house, bathrooms to small though, but
excellent. Had lots of fun! Will definitely come again!"
have visited many many places all over the world i.e. Hong Kong, Dubai,
Abu Dhabi, and have a family villa in France, however this has been our
most enjoyable experience to date. The view is fantastic, the sunset on
the top balcony over a glass of wine is truly unforgetable. Grange Bay
Beach is fantastic, never thought I would imagine having a beach to
ourself on the Caribbean Island! All staff i.e. carlton, christiana and
Judy a absolute pleasure to meet especially carlton's early morning
deliveries of grapefruit. very memorable happy sunny holiday and we
would love to bring family over too next time to enjoy with us. Thank
you very much."
very peaceful and beautiful location, ideal for a restful getaway from
daily life and hustle. Will recommend to anyone for family as well as
group use. Thanks"
"Fantastic holiday and a fabulous wedding with such
"We spent only 4 nights at LaHay. A perfect house
in a perfect location. I can imagine spend the rest of my life there.
Thank's to the owners."
"We have just spent 2 weeks at LaHay and we had a
truly wonderful time! Judy, Christiana and Carlton are fantastic,
nothing is too much trouble for them! The villa is great, I can't speak
highly enough of the hospitality of the people. Judy has gone out of
her way, from meeting us at the airport when we arrived, and driving us
to the villa, also introducing us to the villa, also introducing us to
the staff, she has phoned at intervals in our 2 weeks stay to enquire
if she can help with anything. Chaz and I have enjoyed a marvellous 2
weeks at Lahay. There are great excursions to go on, the scenery from
the villa is beautiful, also the pool and jacuzzi. We very much hope to
return here. Christiana and Carlton are great and can't do enough for
"From Hazel who picked us up, to Judy the manager
and the staff Carlton and Christiana, were all so helpful and kind.
Carlton broughtme fresh fruit from the garden each day, he always came
armed with grapefruit and bananas. So considerate. What i would have
liked is some air condition on the ground floor. Cooking in the area
was unbearable. However that is only our opinion. The discription of
what is at the villa is accurate. The villa itself due to Christiana
and Carlton was spotlessly clean. When they had Sunday off Christiana
made sure we had everything we neede for when she was away. Any
problems that occurred at the villa were dealt with expediciously. The
destination is for relaxation. It has beautiful coves and beach
resorts. Some of which you get alot of hassle at, others none at all.
The nicest beach resort was Store Bay unfortunately you get ripped off
for a beach bed and umbrella and the touts for the trips do not leave
you alone.The trip to Argyle falls was fabulous as was the glass bottom
boat. Which I hasten to add the trip organisers tried to charge us an
extra 100 Dollars just be careful that you get a price and make them
stick to it. The best restaurants that we visited were; 1. The
Seahorse. We attended there on Paul's birthday and the manager Judy
rang ahead and told them we were coming for paul's birthday and after
what was already a fantastic meal fit for a King they brought out
birthday cake with "Happy Birthday Paul" written on the plate in icing.
The table was decorated. It was just amazing. 2. Me Chell's. This food
was spicy but fabulous. 3. Shirvan Watermill. 4. The Fish Pot. All four
of these were on the expensive side but all gave fantastic service,
excellent food and the atmosphere made you feel special. Other
restaurants visited that were reasonably priced and food was ok was the
W.Y.S.I.W.Y.G., The Caffee Coco - one to avoid. Dillons is overpriced,
food poor and service poor. They forgot about us and we waited over
half an hour for a drink. Really bad. Two bars that were excellent and
you made really welcome at was, Shakers and The Ocean View. We drank in
both most days. The Ocean View Friday night has BBQ with authentic food
it is really good and only cost 13 GBP for two of us. The holiday was
fab. It was relaxing, chilled and beautiful. Would recommend the villa
for families or couples, Tobago is a nice destination to visit."
"I stayed at villa Lahay the weekend for my 18th
birthday and I absolutely fell head over heels for the house...it was
sooooooooo amazing and perfect that I wouldnt change anything about
it...........the house holds such beauty both inside and outside, was
well equipted to have a blast, the settings were extremely
comforting.........I cried when leaving the house and will be returning
back as soon as I get chance.....this house made my 18th birthday
"We rented this villa for one week and it was very
beautiful. There were no surprises, what you see is what you get.
Beautiful, spacious, home away from home, we did not want to leave.
Thomas and Linda are very accomodating, this villa would be our first
choice on our next visit to Tobago ....."
"LaHay is beautifully decorated and offers lots of
space for a perfect holiday! The staff is really nice too. The view
from the balcony is breathtaking and it`s great to pick your own fruit
in the garden."
"Its exactly as described beautiful view along the
balcony!Also lots of greenery and birds!Friendly staff to assist and
tend to one's needs during the stay. Accommodation is more than
sufficient as mattresses are provided for extra persons.There were
minor problems concerning the fridge and the jacuzzi which wasn't
particularly clean and id recommend screens for the rooms upstairs for
the A/C.Nevertheless it is a great vacation home!The location is abit
far from the beach and other attractions ie not walking distance which
is unfortunate as it would have been PERFECT but would be for those who
wish for a quiet holiday."
"Had an amazing time at villa LaHay. Highly
recommended. The view is breathtaking. Close to every entertainment and
beaches yet distant enough to feel like you're secluded enough. Many
thanks to Christiana and Carlton, they were great! Will definitely
"We had a lovely time at your villa. It far
surpassed our expectations. Loved the jacuzzi especially."
"Villa was perfect .....loved the pool and jacuzzi.
Location was excellent with fantastic view. Judy (local manager) was
very efficient and kind, as were Carlton and Christiana who look after
the house and garden. We had a wonderful stay and did not want to leave
...... would definitely recommend and love to return. "
"We had another lovely time in Tobago and the
weather this year was perfect - a steady 32 degrees every day and no
rain. Everyone needed rain for the ground and the well's but we were
quite happy! Villa LaHay was perfect for us again and we had some
friends and family out at the beginning and then we were on our own for
2 weeks relaxing. We were very well looked after by Christiana and
Carlton again and they were able to solve any problems we had. Again we
had a wonderful time and if possible would try to go again next year."
"Peaceful retreat, awesome views, great furniture
& lighting on the main floor. Without heating pool maintained
88 degree temps in the last two weeks of January. Best grocery store,
turn left before Mi Shells restaurant and it's on the right (gourmet
supermarket). Best typical bar with water view, Bago's on the corner on
the way to Pigeon point (open at lunch time, sometimes has local food)
and lunch restaurant (when open) WYSIWYG (same road, no view). "
"Enjoying everything! Lovely views nice and relaxing scenery ah! the peace and quiet, no hustle and bustle RELAX!"
"This is our firs time on Tobago and it will not be our last. We love the locatin of LaHay. The view is serene- and the atmosphere comfortable. The staff was quick to respond to any request that we had. We really enjoyed the character of LaHay, the relaxation, the location and the kind consideration shown by you."
"We stayed at LaHay in mid-December. We found the
villa to be perfectly located. We saw whales and dolphins out at sea
from our balcony. The fruit trees on the property were great. The house
manager was on the ball - and took care of any request that we had for
her. The place is totally comfortable, although I would not recommend
it for anyone who has trouble with stairs - there is no bathroom on the
main level - so there is a lot of up and down throughout the day. Some
of the amenities seem a little worn (sheets, bedding, kitchen utensils)
- if I was going to stay there for more than a week and cook my own
meals I would definitely either bring my own pans or pick one up at the
store. I don't want to complain because Linda and Thomas were very
accommodating and so were their staff. My son loved it, and so did we.
We are saving up now for a return trip to Tobago. It was practically a

"I think we all had a wonderful time. It's a very beautiful and peaceful place. I was as well as everyone else in our group we were all very pleased with our stay. It was quite and restful and what can I say wods can't explain the time we had. To all keep up a job well done and we will surely be back."
"I stayed at the Villa for 3 nights and 4 days, and
I did not want to leave. We had a great time."
"Liebe Linda, lieber Thomas. Die Villa Lahay hat
uns 2 wunderschöe Wochen gebracht. Alles war noch viel schöner als wir
es uns erträumt haben. Macht weiter so, wir kommen bestimmt gerne noch
einmal wieder. Für uns war es ein traumhaftes Paradies! Christiana und
Carlton wünschen wir alles Gute für ihre gemeinsame Zukunft- sie sind
ein süsses Paar, das ihren Job sehr gut macht. Tausend dank für alles
und hoffentlich bis zum nächsten Urlaub-wir sind jedenfalls sehr
"We had a great time at Tobago. The house was
excellent. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the jacuzzi very much.
Judy, the gardner and the housekeeper are very nice persons and treated
us excellent. You have a beautiful house which is in great condition
clean and spacious. We felt comfortable and enjoyed the fresh air and
to our surprise we did not have any problems with insects or
mosquitoes. We enjoyed the house so much that we really had to make a
great effort to go visit other places. The kitchen area is excellent."
"We rent a house in Tobago every year for a week
and this year we chose Villa Lahay which was perfect for our holiday
needs. It has a fantastic view of the Mt Irvine golf course, the ocean
and the Nylon Pool from the main living area, and is a short walk or
drive from two very nice beaches - Grange Bay and Mt Irvine Beach.
Getting to other beaches and tourist parts of Tobago however would
require a car.
"Cool, wonderful, relaxing, loving the view."
"Pool, jacuzzi and land scaping make and gives such
a homely feeling. Didn't even reach further than Mt. Irvine Bay and MTV
Real World house."
"Second time here. Needs music on main floor
evening to night socialising. But, pros outweight cons. Still as lovely
as last time even with the pool moved. Memories to last a lifetime.
Peace love and next year for sure."
"It was great fun."
"Beautiful villa, will come again. "
"Hallo Linda und Thomas! Die Tage in eurem Haus

as stranger- and we went as friends."

"Our experience at Villa LaHay was great! Thomas
and Judy were very accomodating and were available always for any
questions we had. The property and view were gorgeous! We especially
loved the fresh fruit every day, it was delicious! The only thing I
would change would be maybe not to have the housekeeper every day. We
personally like a lot of privacy when we take a vacation and having
someone in the house for 4 hours a day might be a little much. Other
than that I would highly reccomend this Villa to anyone. We had a
