Dolphin Boutique Villa is your Caribbean home from home, tucked away in a secluded spot across from a uniquely unspoilt beach in upscale Bacolet Point. This stylish, spacious villa, full of the vibrant colours of the Caribbean, has a garden with so many lovely flowers -which makes it perfect for bird-watching-that passers-by ask to take photos.
Once you arrive at Dolphin Villa you will receive a warm welcome from Tobagonian Kelvin who manages the villa. As you listen to the gentle plashing of the waves and marvel at the sight of hummingbirds and other amazing birds (Tobago has more species than square miles), your cares will be forgotten. Now you are ready to experience the laid-back island vibes and immeasurable beauty of the place.
Chill by the 41' pool, relax on cushioned loungers while watching hummingbirds enjoy the Cape honeysuckle and butterflies fluttering round the zinnias; or just hang out in the hammock (there is one for baby too), swaying gently to the sound of the surf.
The hustle & bustle of city life is forgotten. No need to rush to the shops. You can book dinner for the first evening; The manager/ chef's fish is legendary (he buys it the same day off a boat at Pigeon Point),so is his red bean stew! Alternatively you can pop to the nearby Havana Bistro, or prepare for yourselves in the huge, superbly equipped, kitchen
Slip into the pool after dark and marvel at the stars and the fire flies. It is 3 minutes to the beach where from March to September you can look for leatherback turtles that nest on Minister Bay beach.. Back from the beach, the Hibiscus room's massage shower will prepare you for a perfect night's sleep.. Next morning wake to the sound of the sea and the birds. An early morning walk on the beach close by is a favourite way to start the day. Relax by the pool all day. Watch the plasma TV or listen to the music system, which has I Pod docking and flash drive so you can enjoy your own music, while sea breezes waft into the villa. Or arrange trips to bird-watch, to the rain-forest, on a glass-bottom boat, or a deep-sea boating expedition-all with Kelvin's help. No mean angler,as a young man he crewed on a boat that caught a record-breaking Marlin. One group of guests from New Mexico not only marvelled at the relatively cheap cost of deep-sea fishing, but caught 12 Tuna in only 4 hours.
Alternatively, you can enjoy an active life; a round of golf or scuba-diving followed by a beach party, or taste the local night life; or just chill at one of the many fabulous beaches, enjoy a local dish or two, and then swim or snorkel to your heart's content.
Determined to make you fall in love with his beloved island, Kelvin will do all he can to make you comfortable. Attention is paid to the little things that matter; flowers in your room, candles, coolers, even a sewing kit. Nothing is too much for Kelvin- he will do as much or as little as you wish- help with car hire if you want a small run-around (there is a Honda CRV for rent at the villa), show you the beach, accompany you around on the first day if you would like that. He can advise on the best places to visit and where to eat, cook for you (ingredients are included in the meal price)and, should you wish to self-cater, will buy in groceries ready for when you arrive.
Why not come and experience Carnival, or goat and crab races at Easter? There are fishing tournaments, yacht and power boat races to enjoy.Or just stay home by the huge pool and bask in the sun to the sound of the waves and the birds? Or chill while you enjoy the plasma TV.
Kelvin can also arrange reflexology,aromatherapy massage, thai yoga massage or healing therapy at the villa. After so much pampering, will you ever want to go home?
