We stayed at Villa Sans-Souci on the Tobago Plantations for 2 weeks from 31.7.13. A lovely villa. Good security so we felt safe at all times. Made use of the alarm and safes just to be sure. Great pool where we enjoyed many a fun early morning or sunset swim. Kids loved using it in the daytime. As there are no fences - you have uninterrupted views of the golf course, palm trees etc and can visit the old sugar plantation mill over to the right of the villa to get a sense of what it was like before it became a golf course/villa and hotel complex. Bedrooms all spacious and airy with air conditioning and fans (which we used at night instead of the noisy air con). Bathrooms all have showers (you turn them on then pull the brass part down under the tap to make them work) and baths. Kitchen has all the appliances you would expect and a hall cupboard houses the huge washer and dryer (great for large loads of beach towels etc). Angela the lovely house maid will come in daily if you so require but we preferred her popping in every few days so that out teenagers could sleep in. We sat outside most evenings and ate all meals around the large table outside. It overlooks the pool yet provides shelter in the rain so there's no need to run for cover when the heavens open and the 'liquid sunshine' appears! Large carriageway drive - our two huge vehicles parked nicely outside - no problem. Ten minutes from the local Pennysavers supermarket (by car) and from the NP pretrol station (Fuel is so cheap on Tobago!) The manned security gates make a note of your registration as you leave and enter the complex - very reassuring. Gardener comes every few days to tend/mow/strim the extensive gardens - beware - he comes early!! Lots of hummingbirds and other beautiful species visit the garden regularly some quite tame. Two large lizards live in the bushes - come out regularly - much to the shock of my daughter and hilarity of the rest of the group. Lots of gheckos/lizards live on outside walls and some amazingly beautiful and colourful, very large caterpillars live in the bushes at the front of the villa. A lovely, relaxed stay had by all 8 in our party. Booking with Paul was stress free and he was happy to answer our many queries beforehand. A great place!
