“Excellent Host, Property is Nice”
Reviewed 11 January 2013

Ginny was very friendly and accomodating and made us feel very welcome. She is an amazing hostess; she has lots of experience with the island, so she was able to give us great advice. She was always available and willing to help us out when we needed her. By the end of the trip we felt like she was a member of our extended family.
The property is very nice and relaxing, but the location was a bit off the beaten path for us. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who wants to be coming and going a lot. The rooms are just basic. We found we there were more bugs here than at other places we stayed at. It didn't have air conditioning, but we didn't really need it as there was a nice breeze through the room. Because we were up on a hill we had a very nice view of scarborough. We liked having the hammock to lounge in on the deck. The pool was only good for daytime use because of the temperature and is small (for sitting, not swimming). I think a hot tub, or at least a warm water pool, would be more suitable. Wireless internet would also be a good addition to the house. We really loved Kelly's fresh juice that he prepared every morning, however we unfortunately weren't crazy about the eggs and toast for breakfast. We did not try the yoga, so we can't speak to that.
We would stay here again as we really enjoyed Ginny's company and would recommend Moonlight Mountain to anyone wishing to find a relaxing hideaway for a reasonable price. We wish we could give them a 4.5 out of 5, but that is not an option, so we went with a 4,

Moonlight Mountain is the perfect place for a hideaway in an relaxing atmosphere. Ginny and Kelly are the perfect hosts, very cordial, they make you feel at home. My room (upstairs with large balcony) was beautiful with superb view over Scarborough, the breakfast served in the morning on the large veranda delicious. Moonlight Mountain is very much recommendable and definitively worth a visit. A stay at Moonlight Mountain is good combinable with a stay in Castara at Blue Mango Cottages with beautiful view over the beach.

I can't speak highly enough for the hospitality and the welcome I received at the Moonlight Mountain. Ginny and Kelly are absolutely lovely, the property is well-located above Scarborough with terrific views and away from the busier areas with its own amazing rainforest garden, so there really is a feeling of peace and relaxation that envelops you as soon as you arrive. I had the self-catering studio, and was really comfortable and happy there, and Ginny made sure I wanted for nothing, and was a source of great advice about getting out and about and exploring the island. She helped with everything from jeep hire to booking for boat trips, and even organised a wonderful massage for me on my first day. If you want a real authentic and enhancing experience, the Moonlight Mountain is the place for you. I can't wait to go back!

Ginny and Kelly were so welcoming, that it was like a home away from home - but better! The morning yoga practice was a wonderful way to start the day. And Kelly cooked us some delicious and healthy breakfast every day too. The sea breeze, gorgeous views, and relaxing atmosphere combined to leave me feeling totally rejuvenated - both body and soul. I will definitely be visiting Moonlight Mountain again. I recommend it for anyone looking for a peaceful retreat.

Room Tip: The best view is from the first room at the top of the stairs, but the fridge is in the last room...

Our stay at moonlight mountain was perfect. The owners were so welcoming it was like being at home. The place was very clean. Very comfortable beds. Quiet. Amazing view of Scarborough and the Atlantic. The breakfast was the best we had all trip. Definitely the best place we stayed on Tobago. I would recommend it.

Our final night in Tobago was spent at Moonlight Mountain and when we arrived we wished that we had stayed there for the duration of our time on the island! Ginny and Kelly are lovely and extremely warm and helpful. We asked lots of questions about the area and they gave us wonderful recommendations on where to eat and spend our time. We stayed in two apartments in the main house - both were very clean and beautifully decorated and both had balconies. When you step out on the balcony you see a breathtaking view of the sea along with a view of the town of Scarborough. The apartments are very comfortable and Ginny and Kelly instantly make you feel like you are at home. There is also a large deck with a pool and beautiful gardens surrounding the home. Another wonderful surprise was the lovely breakfast of fresh fruit, eggs, fish, vegetables, juice, and tea. I can't say enough about our stay here. If you are traveling in Tobago and are planning on staying in Scarborough, don't miss an opportunity to stay at Moonlight Mountain. It is also a very central location - close to many interesting beaches, towns, and waterfalls. The warmth, comfort, and serenity of the house make your stay an unforgettable one.

Moonlight Mountain has left us with a memory to cherish and share. The warmth, beauty and comfort of the house were more than we expected. Waking up to the sweet sound of birds chirping, enjoying the breath taking scenic views of nature at its best and conversing with the friendly hosts Kelly & Ginny were fantastic! It is hard to find words to describe the feeling you get from spending even just a few minutes at Moonlight Mountain. To be honest, we loved being at Moonlight Mountain and wished we could have stayed even longer. So if you are looking for a relaxing and serene vacation, just to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life or spend some quality time with your loved one(s), then Moonlight Mountain is the place for you. It is a superb example of a 'home away from home'. Kelly and Ginny have done a fantastic job!
