We stayed over new year 2018 for a week and really enjoyed the house, pool and gardens. Booking was easy and we would recommend this as an excellent place to stay for self catering in Tobago.

Management response:

Thank you for your kind review, I am so glad you enjoyed your New Year holiday. You are welcome to return.

Reviewed 22 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is a spectacular spot. Really spectacular. Up in the hills behind Scarborough in its own substantial grounds, this is a house built in the traditional style. "Corridors" (verandas) on the outside are open to the view and the breeze and give loads of space (we were 11 including the baby) so there is a veranda for you - whether...

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review, we hope you will come back sometime.

My family and I stayed here during our vacation and it was just a wonderful experience. The time off from the busyness of our daily routines was definitely needed. I took advantage of this beautiful place and breathed in clean air while enjoying nature and the outrageous scenery in this property. LeslieAnne was very welcoming and great to my family.

About the neighbourhood
The area known as Concordia used to be a large cocoa estate in the old plantation days. Now it is a pleasant residential area in the hills about ten minutes from the nearest beach, Little Bacolet Bay. Ambassador's House lies up a drive just off the road across the island to the northern Caribbean coast, where you will find many beautiful beaches, some with small bars, some by a small fishing village. The main town of Tobago, Scarborough is down the hill about a 10-minute drive away. It has a vibrant market and banks, pharmacies, supermarket and post office.
A variety of activities and trips are available; rain forest hikes, birdwatching, deep-sea fishing, scuba-diving, snorkeling, sailing, golf and swimming.
Restaurents are located all over the island and very accessible from the ho...
