“Wonderful spot, wonderful people”

The apartment is as advertised, a wonderful place to go and get away. Tiina and Lion keep the place clean and orderly, and if you want a good place to go and read, recharge, book it.

Tiina and Lion are wonderful hosts, and they will truly give you an introduction to the beautiful island of Tobago. They even often have freshly grown fruit (bananas and mangos) they offer you from their garden.

The location is relatively remote, but frankly not far from town or from the beaches. It's on top of a hill which makes for great views, and about a 5-10 minute drive from nearby attractions.

I wouldn't go there expecting a resort, but I wouldn't really go to Tobago at all for such a thing. It is a cottage where you can meet and live amongst the locals and let yourself disconnect from your hectic life. I am not sure when we will return, but we hope to do so at some point.

Yeaaahhh boy!

I can not express my thanks to Tiina & Lion (& Spice) for their hospitality while we stayed in their lovely apartment in Whim.. The apartment had everything we needed & the views across the village by day or moonlight left us relaxed, chilled & refreshed. Staying local instead of a hotel we experienced "real" Tobago. From the Rum Shack to the Chicken shack :) to the lovely meal that Tiina & Lion cooked us with fresh produce in the garden, . We hired a car during our stay & travelled the island & the local contacts with their knowledge that they are so keen to share helped enormously... Would we stay there again? Most definitely altho hopefully the cockerel would have moved on by then lol .. But as I said it's village life :)

“Most wonderful couple in Tobago”

My friend & I stayed in this lovely little apartment for two weeks, not only did we have a lovely place to stay but we also met & stayed with a lovely couple - Tiina & Lion, the owners. The apartment was situated around 20 metres from Tiina & Lions house, so they were often knocking about if we needed them.

When we first booked the apartment, we kept in regular touch with Tiina before we came out. Tiina would get in touch every few weeks & give us information about the place where we were going & also arranged travel arrangements with us. Anytime I asked Tiina a question, she would respond quickly & give us all the information we needed.

The apartment we stayed in was the bigger of the two, upstairs with a lovely decking area looking out over Whim. The kitchen was lovely, with a single bed in the corner and a double bed in the other room. Mosquito nets were provided, all kitchebn appliances were & if we had any problems, Tiina & Lion would be right onto it!

Tiina & Lion definitely helped make our 2 month trip in the carribean worthwhile. Tiina picked us up from the Ferry when we landed, she took us to get some food shopping and back to the apartment. We would go on days out with Tiina & Lion to different villages, to the local beaches & to the bar until whatever time we wanted! Not only were they great hosts, but we have also made lovely friends with them who we hope to meet again in the future! Plus they have a lovely dog (Spice) & they're both great at cooking...

Tiina also has her own little shop in Buccoo, which sells wonderful little gifts & clothing.

The village itself is lovely & everyone is friendly, there is a small local shop & a supermarket not far away (transport needed).

Everything about the place was lovely (apart from the mosquitos) but what made it extra special was Tiina & Lion looking out for us & helping us when we needed it. We were two young females who needed a bit of guidance & support - which is exactly what they provided when we requested it.

Thank you so much for the fresh juice, the company, the food & the lifts. We wouldn't have had half as much fun if you weren't around :) xx
