Ohana Villa, Tobago, Trinidad And Tobago
This unique and very special property is situated high up, at the end of a small sandy cove, with extensive views over the Atlantic Ocean. Built by the owners as a haven of total peace and quiet, it offers a wonderful combination of privacy and luxury. Situated in the Bacolet area, it is 10 minutes drive from Scarborough, and there are many amenities close by, including a supermarket, restaurants, shopping centre and tennis courts. For surfing enthusiasts, Minister Bay is just a 5 minute drive, or Mount Irvine Beach is 30 minutes drive.
The house opens to decks and terraces, including a pool terrace with two infinity pools, one deep and one shallow with a gazebo in between, from which the spectacular ocean views can be enjoyed. The beautifully designed pool terrace also incorporates a Jacuzzi and a fish pond. Curved stairs lead down from the gazebo to the garden. From here, further steps lead down to a perfect golden sand, almost private, little beach below, ideal for swimming. Although it is on the Atlantic side, the beach is protected by a bluff, so is quite calm. One other villa has access to the beach and other than that, there is no easy public access.
The interiors are wonderfully spacious and stylish. The vast living room opens up to the bay and ocean breezes, and over-sized teak day beds filled with plump cushions are perfect for relaxing out of the sun. The kitchen is also delightfully open and breezy, with ceiling fans and views over the little beach below. The four bedrooms all open to private outdoor spaces. There are fantastic sea views from the master bedroom, while Bedroom 2 opens to a veranda leading to the gazebo, Jacuzzi and swimming pools. Bedroom 3 overlooks the pools and gazebo, while bedroom 4 opens to a courtyard, a delightful tranquil oasis, surrounded by clumps of bamboo. The many amenities include air conditioning, as well as ceiling fans, internet access, cable and satellite TV, DVD, CD player, telephone and barbecue facilities. The house is well stocked with board games, movies and a selection of CDs.
