A great, fantastic time, pool was just right, villa was very spacious, the rooms were amazing..with the spaciousness that you had. The property was very clean, tidy and landscaped really nice.

Mr Telemaque was pretty good and accommodating. He and the owner thought about everything and with his guidance you are sure to have a great time and an easy stay at the villa.

It was very relaxing and I would recommend this villa to anyone and everyone.

I must say though I liked the interior artwork in the house, the vast DVD collection and the alarm system. Everything worked as it should.
It was a home away from home.

Thank you!

“Perfect retreat for family or friends!”
Reviewed 21 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This villa was perfect for what we wanted, a great relaxing spot just a short distance from the fast paced Scarborough. The big open plan living area makes the place feel so light and airy, perfect for warm nights. All bedrooms are a great size with very comfy beds and all en suite. The whole property was perfectly clean and tidy, tastefully decorated with an authentic Caribbean feel.
The garden is beautiful with a wonderful tropical feeling with plants and flowers everywhere. There is a balcony the length of the house overlooking the pool, with wide double doors into the house to keep a cool breeze throughout the day . The outside/pool area is perfect - the pool was lovely and clean and felt very private, a lovely place to spend days relaxing without having to go further afield. If you fancy an outing, there is a wonderfully secluded beach, minutes walk from the house, which we took full advantage of taking long walks up the beach in the evening.
The properties manager 'Tele' was extremely helpful and friendly, with expert local knowledge and a great point of call for questions about the area or advice on where to go.
This was our first trip to the beautiful island of Tobago, and we didn't want to leave! Hopefully we will be booking a trip back next year, and will definitely be staying at Bougain villa again. We would recommend to anyone!!

I have to say it was a shame...!! Nice looking piece of property laid out very nice, grounds are lovely, however the whole place needs a makeover in other words a good cleaning and the kitchen differently needs the most work get rid of the stove and fridge!!! ( just needs to be replaced)...The best part of the house was the outside area by the pool....it was clean!! There are so many things I can say about this place that would sound like we are complaining, We did book for 9 nights but had to move out after the fourth to the beautiful Magdalena Grand Beach Resort where our holiday began ...Tobago is so beautiful, looking forward to retuning, sorry Bougain-villa ..it will not be back to you..

Management Response
19 Nov 2013
The property is only 6 years old and is both furnished and decorated to a high standard as the recent photos show. The kitchen/dining area and exterior walls are painted every year and the villa is cleaned thoroughly after each guest which is why we do not accept back to back bookings (only in exceptional circumstances). The stove and fridge are showing signs of normal wear and tear due to the close proximity to the sea and the effects of the high salt content in the atmosphere on metal.

“A true home from home with a caribbean twist”
Reviewed 20 April 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I stayed at Bougain Villa for 2 weeks in mid February with friends following partying at Trinidad Carnival and it was just superb, Just what was needed after the hussle and bussle of Trinidad. So relaxed and peaceful with fantastic amenities The area is nice and secluded, not over looked by anyone and a 2 minute stroll to the most wonderful deserted beach which seemed to stretch for miles with its white powder coastline and crystal clear bright blue sea.
The property itself is gated and walled all round with a locked gate at the entrance and has off road parking so very secure if you have small children. It sits in lovely well kept grounds which surrounds the property with amazing tropical plants and fruit trees"i recommend picking the limes from the tree when mixed with palm sugar they make great juice" To the rear of the property there is a great swimming pool which is lovely for when the sun gets too hot and is also like a bath. Steps lead into the pool so again great for children. Sun loungers and parasols are provided as is a bbq for cooking Tobago style.
The accommodation has a large balcony to the rear overlooking the garden and pool with ample shade and furniture. There are 3 sets of french doors leading to the balcony from the massive open plan living area which incorporates the living, dining and kitchen area. This central point is massive and the vaulted ceilings keep it nice and cool with the fans and it is a great place to chill. There is a fully equipped kitchen including washing machine,range cooker, 2 freezers, 1 fridge for keeping the Carib chilled "Carib is local beer." Leading from the living area is a huge triple room en-suite to the rear of the kitchen and an even bigger master the other end of the property again en-suite, and a third double room en-suit next to that. All with king size beds and air condition if required. There are 3 tvs in the property showing a mix of local and western viewing "living room, Master and Triple room have tv's" We never watched the tv's as its to beautiful to sit indoors. Mr Telemaque is the Premises Manager and what a nice chilled guy! He is on hand for anything and with his local knowledge is just a superb asset to the villa.
A car is not essential but probably easier as its a 5 min drive to Scarborough the main center. Here you will find shops banks etc. The local food Roti is a must, as are Doubles and Royal Castle a take out place with a difference While we stayed here we visited 3 beaches. Minster Bay which is the beach to the rear of the property, Bacolet beach and Pigeon Point . Bacolet beach is a secluded bay not far from the villa which is great for a bit of body boarding as the waves break nicely making for some good surf. Pigeon point is stunning, its beaches are straight out of a picture book and its shallow waters stretch out for miles making it safe for even bad swimmers. There are toilets and bars and restaurants along the beach front serving local and western food at very cheap prices, It is set in a park area with parking for vehicles and is very nice and secluded.
The booking of the property was seamless and all correspondence was answered very promptly as where any questions I had.
All in all I would definitely recommend this to anyone, groups of friends, and families. It really is a great versatile villa and place which is why I will be returning very soon.
