We stayed over new year 2018 for a week and really enjoyed the house, pool and gardens. Booking was easy and we would recommend this as an excellent place to stay for self catering in Tobago.

This is a spectacular spot. Really spectacular. Up in the hills behind Scarborough in its own substantial grounds, this is a house built in the traditional style. "Corridors" (verandas) on the outside are open to the view and the breeze and give loads of space...More

About the neighbourhood
The area known as Concordia used to be a large cocoa estate in the old plantation days. Now it is a pleasant residential area in the hills about ten minutes from the nearest beach, Little Bacolet Bay. Ambassador's House lies up a drive just off the road across the island to the northern Caribbean coast, where you will find many beautiful beaches, some with small bars, some by a small fishing village. The main town of Tobago, Scarborough is down the hill about a 10-minute drive away. It has a vibrant market and banks, pharmacies, supermarket and post office.
A variety of activities and trips are available; rain forest hikes, birdwatching, deep-sea fishing, scuba-diving, snorkeling, sailing, golf and swimming.
Restaurents are located all over the island and very accessible from the ho...
