This house is fully equipped with everything you will need for a relaxing vacation. It’s beautifully decorated, inside and outside. It’s within close proximity to restaurants and grocery stores and most importantly beaches making it the ideal place to stay. I felt safe and secure at all times and will definitely be staying here during my next trip to Tobago!
This is our second time to stay at GInger Lilies Villa, and the fact that we chose to return when there are lots of places we could have stayed says it all. It's such a relaxing place - clean, well furnished, very quiet. It's just a short ride from the airport. There are grocery shops nearby, and the kitchen is well equipped. Buccoo and its quiet beach is only a few minutes drive away. If you just want to relax you can just lounge by the pool or on the shaded cool veranda. We were, as before, well taken care of by Gloria and Mr. James. In particular Mr. James went out of his way to make sure we got our money changed when the TT government issued new hundred dollar notes and then made it very difficult to chnage old notes for new - without his help we stood to lose quite a lot of money. Would we stay there again? Of course.
We rented this property for a 3-day Tobago getaway. The children in the party loved the pool, where the adults could relax and watch over them from the veranda. The kitchen and bedrooms were spacious. The added bonus is working with Anea, the property owner, who went above and beyond in helping us through a technical issue with VRBO. The property managers were delightful too. Definitely the best hospitality I’ve experienced in a vacation rental.
The property is well located to beaches and services, great for family or group. only recommendation is to install some screens to keep out the fly and mosquito and bugs . will stay there again
My entire experience leading up to and including my stay and Ginger Lilies was great. Anea was very good about responding to my messages. She is very professional, courteous and understanding. I include understanding because my family and I had an issue with our flight being delayed by a few hours and at the last minute she was willing to extend our accommodation. Gloria and Mr. James, the property managers helped in making that happen as well because they had to be there for check out, so I was very grateful to them for working with us as well. They are very nice people, very friendly and great to work with. The house itself was very clean, beautiful and had everything we needed. Having that nice sized pool was definitely a plus. Accessibility wise, it's very close to the airport, beautiful beaches and grocery stores. I couldn't ask for a better location. I will definitely be staying here again. Anea and her team are great people!
This was our second time staying at Gingerlilies villa and it and was just as great as the first time. Lovely house, very spacious, in door and out door areas. Very quiet and private. Lots of trees and plants well manicured surroundings. The place was clean, bedrooms well appointed. Nice pool, convenient for liming with porch seating near by. The house keepers James and Gloria were also very pleasant and helpful as usual. I would definitely be back again with my family.
'Ginger Lillies' is a wonderfully spacious and comfortable house; it made a perfect base from which to attend a family wedding and also to explore this beautiful island. Our time was too short - but many thanks to Anea-Jayne, Gloria and Mr James for all their attentions to ensuring that we had a good time.
This review is pretty easy to pen as our stay at Ginger Lilies Villa from March 1st to 4th was simply awesome! The pictures on HomeAway's website do not provide an accurate reflection of this villa, as it is ten times more beautiful in reality. The villa was impeccable and everything that one could desire for cooking was easily found in the kitchen. It is one of the first villas that my family and I have stayed at that is so super children friendly. Pretty plastic cups, plates and bowls for younger children were provided in the kitchen. The beds were all comfortable and the rooms decorated in vibrant colours. Our son and daughter truly enjoyed the pool which was large enough for swimming and thoroughly clean. As the villa is located on a hillside there is breeze throughout the day which makes for a truly relaxing stay. Thank you Anea (homeowner) for being such a pleasure to interact with no question was too much trouble for her and her responses were all very prompt and detailed. Although we have never met the warmth in her responses was always evident. Thank you as well to Gloria and James (villa caretakers) for being so warm, welcoming and hospitable. They are a lovely couple who really are putting love and care into maintaining Ginger Lilies Villa. My family and I were quite sad to leave at the end of our stay and actually tried to extend our booking but sadly all flights were booked. I am already planning a return trip to this dream home and this time around our stay will be longer. Thank you again Anea, Gloria and James for allowing us to have such a wonderful stay in this piece of paradise known as Ginger Lillies Villa. Allyson Dwarka and Family.
Ginger Lilies is a roomy, comfortable home with every amenity you would need for a relaxing and pleasant vacation. You can pack lightly (with just a carry-on) because a washer and dryer are available on-site for your use. The caretakers, Gloria and James, were so helpful. We sent a grocery list to Gloria and everything was waiting for us when we arrived. Our party (4 people) chose not to rent a car, but it wasn't an impediment because James was usually available to pick us up and take us anywhere for a reasonable fee. There isn't a beach within easy walking distance, but at least 4 or 5 are just a short drive away. There is a grocery store a 5 minute walk away at the bottom of the hill, and a restaurant 2 minutes past there. The neighborhood is safe, but bring insect repellent - you might be accosted by mosquitoes. The Tobago people were so friendly and welcoming - probably nicer than anywhere else I can remember. It was an excellent trip for us and a superlative value.
The property is well maintained, wonderfully set and in a fantastic, quiet, breezy location that's close to the main hubs! Caretakers are pleasant, the environment is welcoming, you feel right at home! A truly wonderful experience! Would definitely come again!
Everything about Ginger Lillies is so good. It's clean, comfortable, well equipped. You can tell the owners spend time here, as it is arranged for maximum comfort. The bedrooms are well furnished, There is lots of kitchen equipment, a large dining room table inside (and arm chairs and TV), and plenty of comfortable chairs and two tables on the veranda. There was always a breeze on the veranda, so it was pleasantly cool even on the hottest days (and if you want sun, there are loungers by the pool). The outside areas are well screened by plants, and there aren't many houses nearby, so it feels very private. It's very quiet. Anea is a very considerate and helpful owner (we've rented houses in many countries for many years, and have never before had the owner email us asking if everying was all right, as she did). Everything was more than all right and we were very well taken care of by Gloria and Mr James, who take care of the property. They had bought in some food for us, including milk and fruit, and dropped by several times to make sure we were OK. They were very helpful with suggestions for local restaurants. Would we recommend it to friends? Yes! Would we be happy to stay there again? Yes!
My family spent our Christmas holidays here and enjoyed it totally. The only downside is we did not plan on renting a vehicle which would have made getting around much easier.T Will be back hopefully in another year
Our short stay at Ginger Lillies Villa was very relaxing and comfortable- a veritable home away from home. The villa is beautifully appointed in lovely surroundings in a very quiet and safe suburb. We were made very welcome by the caretaker Mr. James and his wife Gloria. I would not hesitate to return to this lovely home for another holiday in Tobago and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a lovely holiday in Tobago. Thank you Anea Jayne Kearl for enabling us to have a great holiday in your pretty home.
The property is spacious amd tastefully decorated, with attention to small details. The bedrooms are air conditioned and comfortable. The place was clean and inviting. The pool was extraordinary. The property managers were helpful.
Ginger Lilies was the perfect villa for my family's stay in Tobago. My family of four shared the house with my sister's family of four while visiting for a family reunion, and there was plenty of room for us all. The villa had two masters with en suites and balconies and two guest rooms (with icy cold air conditioning) with two twin beds a piece -- we couldn't have asked for a better set up for our families. The open living room, porch and gated pool provided the perfect space for our little ones to play and safely navigate the pool. We look forward to visiting again when our kids are older.
Ginger lily is very roomy you have a lot of space for 6 adults to feel comfortable, quiet neighborhood, Miss Gloria and mr. James the manager was very helpful, everything is close by. Definitely returning to this property, the owner emailed to make sure everything was okay. I am a very picky person and I really like that guest house
Ginger Lilies was our best stay in Tobago yet! The house was remarkable, comforting & quite enjoyable. We created memories there that would last a lifetime. We couldn’t have asked for a better place nor the service we received from both Mr. James & Gloria whilst we were there. I would highly recommend any couple/ family this house. It’s location & setting made us feel as if we were home. My family & I are all about privacy & what we paid for is more than what we got. Anea, thank you for renting us your place. Our mini vacation in Tobago would never have been the same if it wasn’t for you, Mr. James, Gloria & your beautiful villa. Thank you & we hope to visit again sometime soon.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ginger Lillies which was a welcoming haven after Trinidad Carnival. Perfect location and well equipped and thoughtfully designed house. We’re looking forward to our next visit. Owner made smooth booking arrangements and local staff met us at airport and helped with sight seeing tours. We felt comfortable and safe, so could focus on relaxing and enjoying Tobago’s many wonders.
This is a beautiful and spacious house in an excellent location, set back from the main road and thus away from busy areas, but with a very well stocked supermarket a short walk away and great access to wonderful and quiet beaches. The house catches the breeze and looks out to the Caribbean, with great views of Trinidad on a clear day. The house is very well maintained and beautifully appointed with very stylish and comfortable furniture. A real bonus is the large veranda with outside sofa and chairs that makes for wonderful shade and breeze. There is also a large teak table and chairs for outside dining in addition to the inside dining table and chairs. The lovely and very well maintained swimming pool catches the sun for most of the day. The patio drains well in any rain (and not into the pool as we have encountered elsewhere!) The gardens are well maintained and established. The couple who manage the house are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We felt really at home and have been fortunate to visit several times already.
Had a great holiday at Ginger Lillies in January. The house and gardens is spacious and well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing family holiday. The terrace is covered and has multiple seating and dining areas and leads to a further sunny terrace with pool. Everything is screened by mature trees which give privacy, but don't obscure the views. The location is close to restaurants with a supermarket within walking distance. The beaches are a short drive (or cycle) away with a choice of the Caribbean or Atlantic coast. We toured the island and found some fabulous coves and beaches to relax on. We combined relaxing days by the pool with adventurous trips snorkeling, mountain biking etc and can thoroughly recommend Ginger Lillies as the ideal base for a relaxing time in the Caribbean sunshine, or a base to explore the delights of a beautiful and largely unspoiled tropical island.The rain forest is not to be missed
My family and I recently returned from our stay at Ginger Lilies Villa, our stay was amazing. The Villa is exactly as the photos. The house was clean and equipped with everything for our stay and convenience. The house is located in a quiet area with adequate privacy and security. The pool and surrounding areas are clean and well kept. The kitchen is equipped with all the amenities of your home. Mr. James and his wife meet us on our arrival. They were very friendly and warm during our stay at the Villa making us feel at home. We had a wonderful stay at this Villa. We will be returning and I will recommend this accommodation to our friends and family. Anea responded to correspondence in a timely manner and the booking arrangements were handled professionally and easily. Thank you for making our Christmas 2016 a memorable one.
My stay at Ginger Lillies was amazing! My friends and I had a great time. The ammenities at the house were beyond our expectations. The house was very tidy and clean upon arrival and a cleaning service was offered during our stay. Our requests were met with minimum hassle and staff were friendly. Will definitely be staying at Ginger Lillies again!!
I recently returned from a wonderful stay at Ginger Lilies. All our arrangements ran smoothly. The property manager, Mr James met us at the airport to take us the short journey to the house. Ginger Lilies is an attractive and most comfortable home. It is clear that a great deal of thought has gone into the decor and choice of furnishings. All the rooms are spacious and airy and it was great to have the benefit of air conditioning if we needed it. The large kitchen is well equipped for self catering. We appreciated the many home comforts such as internet access and cable TV. Outside, the lovely pool and terrace are surrounded by lush, well maintained gardens. When we were not floating around in the pool we really enjoyed relaxing on the shady veranda. Everything was very clean and well kept - the property managers, Mr James and his lovely wife Gloria clearly take a lot of pride in the house and offer a warm welcome to visitors. They could not have been more helpful. The house is in a quiet residential area and it was very handy to have a well stocked small supermarket a short walk away down the hill. This was my first visit to Tobago and I loved this beautiful island. We had a car and went out each day to a different beach, some very close, some further away but all idyllic. We had a wonderful time at Ginger Lilies and I can certainly recommend this house without hesitation. Thank you Anea Jayne for sharing your beautiful home.
Such a relaxing place - spacious and well equipped with everything necessary you have at home. Outside area especially comfortable with large shady veranda, sofas, dining tables and barbecue, all overlooking a glorious pool. Great views to the sea yet sheltered by vegetation for privacy. Large grassed garden area as well. Not too far from the airport makes it convenient for short or longer stays and a variety of lovely restaurants within a short car journey for those who wish to eat out though staying in is a delight in the evening, dining on the veranda. Local supermarket is handy to get supplies. Would definitely go back - says it all!!!
This was our second stay at Ginger Lilies and it was just as lovely as the first time. As always, Anea Jayne was very prompt in replying to email and very easy to work with. The house was perfect for us and Mr James and Gloria were great. We very much look forward to staying here again in the future.
Had a blast 2015 Easter Tobago @Ginger Lillie And also 2014 Easter
My husband and I have just had the most wonderful 3 week holiday at Ginger Lilies. Booking the house with the owner, Anea, was a breeze and she was extremely helpful and patient with any queries we had before we went. We received a very friendly welcome at the airport from the manager, Mr. James, who then drove us on the short journey to the house where we met his lovely wife Gloria. They did everything they could during our stay to make our holiday perfect. The house was immaculate and the pool was fabulous. We hired a car from Mr. James and he took us on a tour of the island so we could get our bearings and discover the best beaches and the best place to eat Lobster! He also introduced us to the charming Captain Power who took us on a boat trip to Buccoo reef where we snorkelled and nylon pool where we drank rum punch in the crystal clear ocean. The temperature was always about 30 degrees, but there was a constant breeze at the house making it always pleasant to relax on the terrace. If you do need to cool off further there is air conditioning in the bedrooms. The birds may wake you in the morning, but this is a small price to pay for staying at such a beautiful holiday location. There is also a well stocked supermarket within walking distance where we were even able to change money at a better rate than we received in England. If you want luxurious accomodation in Tobago within easy reach of excellent beaches, then we would highly recommend booking Ginger Lilies.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent at Ginger lilies recently. From the start Anea was very helpful with the booking process and was very gracious when two last minute additions were made to my guest list. The villa itself is simply beautiful, spacious, airy and immaculately maintained. James and Gloria the property managers were very friendly and helpful. I intend to visit again and would highly recommend.
My friends and I stayed in this wonderful home for a week in December. Our entire stay was comfortable and relaxing. The house is located just a short walk from the supermarket. We liked Pigeon Beach because of the shops, bars, and restaurant. It is at most 10 minutes by car. When we stayed home, the pool was very refreshing and surrounded by a beautiful backyard area. The house was very clean and the rooms were spacious. Mr. James and Gloria (house managers) were amazing throughout the week. They were trustworthy and very helpful in guiding us to great beaches and restaurants. Mr. James helped us explore the island. He drove us to far away destinations on roads we would never want to drive on ourselves. He also knew of all the beautiful beaches and destinations that are off the beaten path. Gloria maintained the inside of the home like it was her own. We would recommend this home to all. We hope to someday soon return!
4 adults and 2 kids - 3 night stay was not enough time. Anea Jayne was extremely helpful through the booking process. She responded to my inquiries in a timely fashion and had eased our minds about booking a rental property in the Caribbean from Toronto, Canada. Once we arrived at Ginger Lillies, it was immediately apparent that the pictures do no justice to this property. What you see on the site is just a tease.. The home is extremely clean and spacious. The home is fenced in with an electronic gate. We felt safe the entire stay. Rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. The heated pool is where we spent the majority of our time. The villa has all the amenities of home with a Caribbean flare. The grocery store is a short stroll from the villa and is well stocked. We were able to get everything we needed. Remember you are in the Caribbean, and Tobago does not have delivery services. There were no issues with mosquitoes on our stay but i would recommend bringing some coils with you if you are in the pool after dark. James and Gloria, the house managers went out of their way to help us with anything we needed, from grocery shopping to picking up take out and taking us to the near by beaches. They are the most honest and friendly people who made our stay comfortable. Our favorite beach is Pigeon Point, which has shops and a bar and restaurant. Perfect for taking little ones. I would and have recommended the villa to family and friends. We are already planning our trip next year! Thanks Anea Jayne, James and Gloria for allowing us to have a short stay in your home. See you again soon. AD and SD from Toronto, Canada.
Ginger Lilies is an excellent place to stay. Anea Jane was very accommodating and answered promptly by email all the questions I asked. She was very understanding about scheduling difficulties that I had. The caretakers of the place Mr. James and Gloria were very friendly, and they do their jobs well as the place was very well maintained and very clean. I took the advice of another reviewer and decided to stay there even if it's not a beach front property. I'm glad that I did. The location is good, and the area very quiet. A mini mall and grocery is within walking distance, and the beaches nearby, although I would recommend the use of a vehicle. The house consists of four bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom and a queen sized bedroom both has their own bathrooms. The other two rooms has two twin beds each, and they share a common bathroom. All the beds were very comfortable, which ensured that the trip was restful, even if we did a lot of activities during the day. All four rooms are air conditioned. Downstairs housed a tv room, well equipped kitchen and a dining area which is nice but we did not really use this as the patio has this really great round table. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well maintained, so there were a lot of birds (especially hummingbirds) and butterflies about. Having breakfast and supper outside was definitely a plus for me. The pool is nice, not too small or too large and very clean. I love the décor. Nothing is overdone. One can tell that thought was given to the art, furniture and other items (like the chandelier). The modern conveniences of cable, internet, electronic gates and hot water were all there. I had a wonderful time at ginger lilies and have already recommended it to friends. I would definitely stay there again.
My family and I enjoyed the beautiful landscaped gardens, and pool area. The breathtaking view from the balcony was also incredible. We were very comfortable as the residence offered all the comforts of home and more. We would definitely recommend to friends and will certainly be back again! SJ
The house is situated in beautiful gardens and is in a perfect position close to the airport and many stunning beaches. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. There are numerous restaurants and we were lucky to experience seeing the turtles laying their eggs on turtle beach. My wife Beverley and I would happily recommend this property to our friends and hope we can stay again. The house lives up to all expectations.
My family an I had a very exciting an enjoyable Easter weekend. The villa was everything stated in it's description an more. The caretakers were very nice an welcoming. Looking forward to going back.
I have been meaning to put a review in here since we came back from Tobago Feb. 23, 2014. We really enjoyed the villa. I was initially worried that I was being taken to the cleaners but I phoned Anea in England and felt better that I was actually talking to a real person. James met us at the airport and then we rented a car from him which was helpful to get around Tobago. It wasn't that bad driving on the other side of the road. James and Gloria were extremely helpful and we enjoyed our visits with them. The villa had lots of space and beds (sleeps 8 easily). We loved the pool and used it all the time because the weather was beautiful and hot. The villa was a short walk to the grocery store and we mainly cooked our own meals. If we return to Tobago, I would definitely stay here again.
We can only dream of being back at the villa, relaxing by the pool. The week was an absolute delight..a much needed vacation in such a comfortable, accommodating house. The house managers, Mr. James and Gloria were a fantastic help, and provided a perfect balance of being there when we needed, as well as giving us our own time and space. The photos did not do the house justice. There was an overall feeling of romance and airiness throughout the two levels. The bedrooms are spacious and clean, with the master bedroom being a retreat in itself. The high ceilings and open concept let the air flow through so that we were always comfortable. The wrap around deck allowed us to sit outside without melting in the sun, while the pool is a perfect size and depth. Anea is amazing at corresponding, answering questions and providing information. We will definitely be back.
This villa was so relaxing and everything I expected and more. With only a 5 mins drive to the beach, the location is ideal for persons who want tranquility but also want to be close to amenities. These are a number of restaurants within a few minutes of the villa. The house is wonderfully decorated with an island chic vibe. Spacious and equipped with everything needed. The pool and grounds were well kept. Everyone was friendly and professional. It was a pleasure meeting Mr James, the groundskeeper. And Anea the owner, does well with communicating with the guests and inquiries. I would definitely return.
We stayed at Ginger Lilies for a few days in 2013. This was my family's first vacation together and we couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. Anea was very helpful and responsive to any questions I had prior to our arrival date. The house is beautiful and well kept. It isn't beachfront property but the views of the rainforest from the balconies is beautiful enough, though you will need to rent a car or hire a taxi to explore Tobago's beaches. The small grocery located down the road is a great added convenience. I will definitely stay here again and hope to revisit next year. I highly recommend Ginger Lilies as a wonderful Tobago retreat.
Words cant even begin to describe how I feel about Ginger Lilies. I LOVE THAT VILLA!!!!!This has been my best Tobago experience to date. From my easy communication with Anea (the owner) who never failed to quickly respond to any of my queries, to the beautiful house and not to mention how pleasant and accommodating Mr. James (the manager) and his wife were ( the ferry was delayed on Friday and we arrived in Tobago at 12:30 on Saturday morning and they were so understanding.) My friends and I were so overjoyed when we arrived and realized that the pictures from the site could not even compare to the beauty of the house itself. We did not want to leave. I would eagerly recommend this villa to anyone going to Tobago. The service as well as the villa deserves more than 5 stars. Truly wonderful experience.
Family of 8 plus one baby stayed here and it was lovely, we did not want to leave the villa to go to the beach. Everything is as seen in the pictures with all the conveniences of home. Appliances (in kitchen and washing area) need updating but this did not affect us much. Anea, the owner, was very helpful and responded to my questions very quickly
Ginger Lilies is an impressive and very well appointed villa and we felt very safe in this quiet residential area. The first of the many assets to praise are the house managers Mr James and Gloria. They are welcoming and extremely resourceful, full of local knowledge. They take care of the property with evident pride. The house is in an excellent location with some of the best beaches on the island within easy reach; close to all amenities but away from the hustle of Crown Point. Situated on top of a hill you can catch the tropical breeze beautifully both in the house with the windows and louvres, and outside on the spacious veranda that gives plentiful shade all day long. Having stayed many times in the Lowlands and Bon Accord this was a real wow in comparison as you enjoy the views towards the Caribbean and Trinidad which is clearly visible. The house is tastefully furnished in a sympathetic, comfortable Caribbean style, with art work by local artists. There is generous comfortable seating and dining in style. The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped for self catering. The wraparound veranda has a great range of cushioned outside seating. We loved sitting in the corner in the evening to catch the breeze after watching spectacular sunsets; a great place for cocktails and liming. There are ample cushioned sun loungers. The pool is in the sun all day, accessible for all ages, very well maintained by Mr James and well designed for rain water to run off into the garden rather than back into the pool, as we have on occasion experienced elsewhere. The garden is very well designed and beautifully kept, giving an excellent balance between privacy and views; the flowers and shrubs attract hummingbirds and butterflies. If you are there on the day the gardeners visit and offer them refreshment you may be reciprocated with coconut water fresh from the tree. In our opinion the delights of Tobago are best enjoyed if you travel round and take in the scenery. This house is in an excellent location for touring and very close to Buccoo with its reef and Sunday School. Visitors should not be put off by the fact the house is not directly on the beach - you get much more house for your money, great views and breeze, with a well stocked supermarket 5 minutes' walk away. We have visited the island many times and this is the best place we have stayed. In conclusion, we are already booked for next year and very much looking forward to it.
It was just like the pictures. All my guest were pleasantly surprised about that. I fell in love with the colors and simply elegant decor. Because of the layout all found that they had their own space even with four individual families there. The bedrooms were exceedingly comfortable, all slept even on the first night (some usually don't when in a strange place). The place was clean. Pool was well maintained. The ac pumped. The owner Anea was very easy to deal with, no question was a burden. I have already recommended this place to at least 5 families. Enjoyed eating at the Pasta Gallery a quaint local restaurant -intimate and romantic.
We had a wonderful stay at Ginger Lilies. Anea Jayne was very prompt and helpful with email communication before our arrival. We really enjoyed the house and pool. The layout is great and it was very clean. The location was perfect for us. Mr. James was extremely helpful and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again next time we're in Tobago.
We stayed at Ginger Lillies in May for a family wedding. Our party consisted of 3 adults & four children had a fantastic time. The booking process was a breeze. Paid a holding deposit with the balance due a month before. The owner, Anea, was incredibly helpful and very efficient in dealing with any enquiries. Met on arrival by Mr James & Gloria who were so welcoming! Hope to see you again... The property was perfect for us - our youngest child was aged 3 and the eldest, aged 10. They all slept blissfully in the simple and tranquil air-conditioned bedrooms. The living, dining & verandah were all very relaxing with ample seating. The kids enjoyed watching Peppa Pig in Spanish! Yep, there is satellite tv & a DVD player too for those rainy days. Wifi is good but be aware that the range is limited so any surfing will need to be done in the living area. Pool is truly amazing! The villa is located just a short drive from the airport (and also the fab beaches) & is moments away from a local supermarket. Useful advice: Minor bugs are prolific in the Caribbean and especially towards the rainy season so ensure you take plenty of insect repellant. Also, we advise using mosquito coils and citronella candles in the villa every night. Visitors from the UK should note that the villa is fitted with US style 2-pin sockets so take the correct adaptors! Overall, a truly memorable stay and highly recommended. Do not hesitate, book today....
I spent a weekend at ginger lilies with my family and it was more than amazing, we enjoyed every moment there, but I think my (1) one year old daughter enjoyed it the most. She was so excited to just be there. The house was well kept and clean, the pool was amazing. Beaches and restaurants were just a couple minutes away. It was everything you wanted from a vacation and so much more. I would recommend this house to everyone I know. Really looking forward to returning at least once a year.
We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Ginger Lilies with two other couples. Everything about the villa was perfect.. It is spacious, airy , well- maintained , very comfortable and looks just like the photographs. There is a lovely pool area and great views from the balconies to the sea beyond. The villa is maintained by the charming Mr James and his wife Gloria. They are available for advice on local restaurants or anything else that needs some local knowledge. Tobago is a beautiful, unspoilt island with many wonderful beaches. Hiring a car is the best way to enjoy the island. There is a lovely beach only a ten minute drive away. We had several delicious barbecues on the terrace with fresh local fish bought from local fishermen ( Mr James to advise). A perfect way to end a busy day exploring the island. We all had a fantastic holiday and would love to return one day. We will be recommending Ginger Lilies to our family and friends.
We, 2 couples, stayed here for 7 nights, and loved the beautiful home. It is very well maintained, lovely pool out back, and with a nicely landscaped yard. The kitchen is very well equipped, although there are no condiments, sugar or anything so you would need to buy these when getting groceries. There is a grocery store in walking distance for pretty much everything. The beds are good with mosquito netting around the king bed, but not around the queen. There were no issues with hot water, and everything was sparkling clean, thanks to Gloria, the housekeeper. You do need a car if you are staying here, unless you plan on eating in, and just staying at the pool...or you could have Mr. James take you where you want to go. There are no restaurants in walking distance from the villa, but we did find several good ones fairly close that we drove to. Mr. James arranged for our car rental. Anea, the owner, answered my emails very quickly, and was great to communicate with, and make suggestions of where to go, and what to do. I would not hesitate to recommend Ginger Lilies...it is wonderful !!
Paradise discovered! Wonderful setting, private pool, lush gardens, quiet neighbourhood with the sound of the Tobago Cocrico on a morning, breath-taking view of Buccoo, all the modern amenities and comforts that you can wish for in a vacation home! The photos on the website are accurate and the house was well maintained and clean. I would recommend Ginger Lilies without reservation! Congratulations to the owners and the caretaker!
The Villa was absolutely stunning with amazing views and a wonderful pool which just let the days just drift by. The owner was very friendly and the manager Mr James also could not have been more helpful,the house is clean modern and well-appointed it exceeded our expectations in every way, from the fantastic views to the well equipped kitchen to the beach and lovely local supermarket., the pool and garden were kept to very high standard i would definitely recommend the ginger lilies villa to other travelers
I think that this Title best describes our time at Ginger Lilies... A group of friends and I booked this villa after reading about it and the reviews, on this site. We have all agreed, we made the best decision... We were in awe from the time we arrived till we left... Ginger Lillies is exactly like the pictures on this site, very clean, very well maintained, extremely cozy and comfortable and the pool is 'heavenly' and the villa is ideally located... Mr. James and Gloria were wonderful hosts...very pleasant and helpful, and generally made sure we were always alright.... We would definitely be visiting Ginger Lillies Again Soon and have already referred it to a few friends and family...
We just came back from a short stay in this property and was very pleased with all the facilities and service of the manager. The house was clean and convenient. The air conditioned bedrooms were very nice for sleeping. The kitchen had all the essentials for cooking a quick meal. We felt safe there. Had to rent a van to get around and go to the beach. The swimming pool was awesome, especially for the children. We would stay there again.
The house, pool and property were all very clean. Mr. James was an excellent host. Everything was very well kept. If I make it back to Tobago I will definitely try to stay here again.
What a fantastic stay we had at Ginger Lilies. The home was everything as advertised spacious, very clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the pool so very much that at times, it was hard to get out. Mr. James and Gloria were the PERFECT hosts making sure that everything was just comfortable. Our visit to the fish market in Mt Irvine to get fresh fish for dinner was particularly memorable. Lunch at Pigeon Point was also very special. We also made meals at home, shopping at the well stocked supermarket just down the hill from the villa. We are looking forward to our next stay at Ginger Lilies.
I booked this villa on a very last minute trip to Tobago with some friends and family and I do not regret it. The house is simply beautiful and simple, with all air conditioned bedrooms a spacious living room and kitchen it was like love at first sight! The care takers and housekeeping greeted us warmly on our arrival and were very helpful and accommodating! They take a lot of pride in this house, it was well kept and clean as well as the surrounding gardens were well maintained. This house is ideal for families or groups of friends looking to relax, it's close to the action but far enough to not be bothered by the hustle and bustle. The facilities described are very accurate my niece adored the heated pool, she would not come out! I would recommend this house to any of my close friends and family but at the same time you just can't help but feel to keep it a secret! Although my stay was very short, between the caretakers, housekeeping and the owner it was the most pleasant travel arrangements I've ever had the pleasure of organising and Ginger Lilies would definitely be seeing me again!
Die Villa entspricht in allen Bereichen denen der Beschreibung bzw. der Fotos. Wir waren 4 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder und es hat allen sehr gut gefallen. Der Pool hat eine angenehme Größe und eignete sich vor allem für die Kinder für die schnelle Erfrischung zwischendurch. Der Kontakt zur Besitzerin war unkompliziert und auch der Kontakt zum Hausmeisterpärchen über Whats-App möglich, so dass einem hohe Telefonkosten (Auslandsgespräche) erspart blieben. Die Haushälterin hat für uns einen kleinen Einkauf vorab erledigt, so dass auch der Kühlschrank mit dem Notwendigsten für das erste Frühstück gefüllt war. Grundsätzlich empfiehlt es sich jedoch aufgrund der Lage etwas außerhalb einen Mietwagen zu nehmen. Der Linksverkehr ist zwar gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber die Taxikosten zum Strand / Pigeon Point / Flughafen sind Verhandlungssache und lagen bei uns (Großraumtaxi/Tageszeit) zwischen 120 - 160TT$ (7TT$=1€). Ein Supermarkt und auch ein Restaurant sind jedoch in Laufweite.
Wir haben eine Woche in Ginger Lilies verbracht und die Zeit dort sehr genossen. Um flexibel zu sein, empfiehlt sich auf jeden Fall ein Mietwagen. Damit ist man innerhalb von 5-10 Minuten an Stränden, Supermärkten, Cafes und Restaurants.
