“Perfect...for a different sort of traveler”
Reviewed 10 February 2014 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed at Casa Cassini as a couple (we are in our mid-20s). Reservation and booking was a piece of cake. Steve, one of the owners, responded promptly to our email, talked to us on the phone and answered all our questions. He picked us up (on Christmas day!) from the airport and returned us (on New Years Day). Steve also drove us to a grocery store that was open on the holiday and waited with us until we completed our shopping. The apartment was very well appointed with all the kitchen ware we could want or need. There was also a nice collection of condiments and light groceries already in the fridge. On one hand, we loved the blessed quiet, and on the other hand we felt a little isolated.

As this was our first experience with vacation rental (rather than hotel suite), the self-catering experience took some getting used to. This is no fault of the Cassinis, but it didn’t feel quite like a vacation making our own bed, cooking our own meals, straightening our own bathroom, etc. But with the money we saved, it was worth the slight lack of luxury it in the end. Afterall, it wasn’t our honeymoon or anything. During our week stay, we had one room-cleaning which was sufficient (although we cooked daily and therefore needed to take out trash every day or so). We went to the nearly deserted beach almost daily. I swam laps in the pool and my husband took a dip every so often. Steve even loaned my husband his machete and we treated ourselves to fresh coconut water from the plentiful trees on the shore.

One note is that this is not a very accessible part of the island. We had to fight with taxi drivers daily to take us to the house as some of them [acted like they] had never heard of it, didn’t recognize the street name or even the reference landmarks. Also, most of the things we wanted to do were clear on the other end of the island (Sunday School Pan Exhibition, Restaurants, Bars) so taxis were a real expense (we sometimes spent US$70+/day). We generally intended to cook for ourselves every day, but the few times we wanted to go out to dinner, there was nothing in walking or even short driving distance and going into town was a whole big production. After dark, we didn’t feel comfortable walking down to the taxi stand, let alone waiting there for a pickup. There is a taxi stand just down the road, but most of them only go as far as Scarborough (a 5 minute drive). Once in Scarborough proper, taxis to other villages (and even back to Casa Cassini) were hard to come by. Steve did recommend a rental car company to us, but neither of us are familiar with left-hand driving and didn’t feel comfortable renting. About halfway through our stay, Jan recommended a taxi service to us and they took us to a New Years Eve party and to church on Sunday. We found them convenient, if expensive.

No complaints about the place, however if we return to Tobago again, we would likely stay on a more lively part of the island.

“Absolutely perfect and refreshing!,”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

Everything was perfect! Location! Accommodation! Close out beaches, shopping centres for groceries, restaurants....everything from a formal sit down meal to some amazing island cooking we picked up from the road side cook stands. Steve and Jan are a wealth of information about the island. They were both very friendly and helpful with helping us plan our trip and to make the most of our time while visiting Tobago. We rented a car which Steve helped arrange. We explored the island by car. We enjoyed snorkelling, beach combing, swimming under a waterfall, hiking, eating, relaxing, and sight seeing. Even did some bird watching right out the front door!! Beautiful people and a beautiful place to stay and feel refreshed.

Good accommodation with an excellent sea view over 'your own local beach'. The owners, Steve and Jan could not have been more helpful and friendly, yet left you alone as much as you wanted. The private swimming pool is an ideal way to cool off from the heat of the day. Arrival and departure was made really easy by Steve meeting and taking us to the airport. Eating breakfast each morning on the balcony watching the birds and listening to their lovely songs is one of the real memories of our hoilday. We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a comfortable stay in a good location to see the lovely island of Tobago. However, you will need to hire a car to get around. Driving on the island is straight forward and the cost of fuel a fraction of the price of that in the UK.

This was our first trip to Tobago and as with most first time trips we were a little apprehensive. But the minute we stepped off the plane and met Steve and Jan we were made to feel like old friends. The apartment is charming and the view was great. Nothing starts a day like sitting on the veranda in the morning sipping your coffee listening to the birds sing (or squawk) and looking at the beautiful blue water. We just wish we could take all that home with us. Steve and Jan were very helpful with making suggestions as where to go and what to see. Steve arranged a renal car for us and had it delivered to the house. Although driving on Tobago is not for the faint of heart, I am not saying it's not safe - it's just a different experience. Steve was always available for directions to supermarkets, restaurants and banks. Even though the apartment is located above their home we always had our privacy. Very quite and peaceful. A short walk takes you to a beautiful beach with very few if any people. We really enjoyed our visit and Steve and Jan made us feel right at home.
