Moonlight Mountain is built along traditional lines, it is what is called in the Caribbean a gingerbread house - a reference to the decorative fretwork which adorns the outside. Set in what used to be agricultural land and designed to catch the sea breezes, it has its own fruit trees, a nature trail through rainforest and a bamboo grove. A couple of steps from the kitchen door and ,depending on the season,you can pick your own fresh fruit for breakfast.Beyond the garden a gently sloping path leads you to a nature trail that winds through rainforest and a grove of graceful bamboo.

Over forty species can be seen around the house and grounds. Overlooking the rainforest is a wooden deck, a perfect spot for viewing the wildlife or just relaxing under the stars. The cathedral ceiling in the main living area gives the spacious main living area a wonderful sense of peace and calm.Three of the four bedrooms in the main house have verandas with hammocks and views out to sea.The shuttered windows in the master suite open to a view of rolling hills and the sea.There is a self contained studio apartment, ideal for a couple who like their own space. and a yoga studio for those who practise!More

You're on top of a mountain in Tobago. A beautiful breeze blows constantly - no need for AC. The house is spacious and well laid out with lots of room. Loved it! Being Tobago, it's easy to go everywhere.

Your appreciation of this villa will depend on what you want. I expected a traditional caribbean/mountain home in a natural setting with a great view. I was happy because that is exactly what I got. It was a relaxing escape. I especially enjoyed laying in a hammock and gazing on the beautiful tropical foliage in the foreground and down on the harbor and sea in the background. The interior is tastefully but simply decorated - and comfortable. The house is constructed in such a way that it opens up to the outside, inviting sun and breeze inside. Climbing up the steep potholed track to get to the house was an authentic caribbean experience. My wife, on the other hand, expected an upscale and modern luxury home with modern conveniences, so she was unhappy with everything but the great views. She was especially unhappy with the lizards, birds, and other critters that were frequent house guests. My wife would have been much happier at the Magdelena Grand resort. Not me. However, we both would have preferred that the kitchen was more inviting in terms of clean and empty fridge, clear counters, and new utensils. I would have given this property fours stars. My wife would have given it two. So I averaged it at three stars.

Thank you for your response, Richard. Glad you enjoyed it! As you say, we are a rustic experience, at one with nature and don't purport to be otherwise. Re: the kitchen- we left condiments, herbs and spices out on the worktop for you to use, so you didn't have to go & buy! Have taken note though and now put them away.
