High on a cliff overlooking the sea, Gloucester Place commands one of Tobago’s finest views of the Caribbean in one direction and the Rain Forrest Reserve in the other. Just a short walk from the beach in the picturesque fishing village of Parlatuvier, this area is considered one of the loveliest on the island. Guests can enjoy the mesmerizing crashing of waves against the rocks, daily migrations of frigate birds as they cruise along the coast, or listen to the cries of the cocricos, chatter of the parrots, and songs of other island birds. The property consists of two houses and an infinity edge swimming pool, bounded by a river on one side and the sea on the other. Surrounding the houses are gardens, mature coconut palms, mango and other fruit trees, and lots of banana plants. Paths lead along the hillside past the fruit trees, down to Creighton River and our own water fall and swimming hole. The Main Ridge Forest trail is just 10 minutes away. We have a large veranda on the main floor, perfect for bird watching and checking boats at sea. Another veranda on the second floor overlooks the sea in two directions. Each of our three guest rooms is air conditioned with en-suite bath. Two rooms have queen sized beds, and one has twin beds that convert to king sized with the addition of another mattress.

My sister, nephew and I had the complete pleasure of staying at Gloucester Place house in March of 2014. Innkeepers, Win and Bea were truly a delight and made our stay that much more a success. The house is a distance from the main town, airport and ferry but completely worth the trip. This part of the island is so tranquil, manicured, green and unspoiled. We enjoyed just wandering (we had our car) or walking to the nearby waterfall or lunch/drink spots and beach. The breakfast on the open-air deck/kitchen starts each day the way you would want on vacation. Yum! Bea and Win are very accommodating in every way, you can even eat other meals in their house and they're quite the duo in the kitchen. I especially enjoyed their stories from many years of life abroad. Good times had by all. So much so, we're going back in April!

Gloucester Place is a terrific find for those of us that like to be a little off the beaten path when on vacation. Win and Bea are perfect island hosts and they want to share the best of Tobago and every gem that the north side of this beautifully unspoiled island has to offer. We were literally taken in as family and really made to feel so welcome. Everything about the house is relaxed and calm and the sound of the waves always present crashing onto the rocks below is truly mesmerizing. Coupled with the views of the forest in one direction and ocean in the other you can’t help but smile about how lucky you are to have been smart enough to book this place! We suggest you come hungry because there is a lot of good food to eat on this island and Bea’s fresh banana pancakes at breakfast should not be missed. We enjoyed watching the local birds right at the inn, relaxing at the pool, walking to the local waterfalls, going into the rainforest, touring a cocoa plantation, visiting nearly every beautiful cove beach on the island and most of all the thrill of driving around the entire island anticipating what view the next hairpin bend would bring.

If you want a clean, comfortable guest house with the most welcoming and friendly owners, away from the tourist hotspots, then this is it. Originally picked as part of a bird watching trip, so we could be near the rainforest reserve in the north of the island it is a gem. Bea and Win just make you feel relaxed and at ease as soon as you arrive. The guest house is in a cliff side location with spectacular views overlooking the Caribbean Sea about an hours drive from the airport. With a few tips on the local spots from Bea and Win we were soon watching some stunning birds. Top River Falls in Parlatuvier is not to be missed. On the short easy walk to these picturesque falls we saw specialities such as Barred Antshrike, White-fringed Antwren, Green Kingfisher, Rufous-tailed Jacamar and Blue-crowned Motmot. Around Parlatuvier Bay itself we saw Magnificant Frigatebirds, Brown Booby and Brown Pelicans. If we come back to Tobago, Gloucester Place will be top of our accommodation list. Thanks Bea and Win for a most enjoyable stay

My boyfriend and I stayed at Gloucester Place for 10 days over the holidays and had a wonderful time. Bea and Winn are super sweet and helpful. The house is very clean and the grounds are beautiful, especially the pool/yard. We woke to the lovely sound of birds each morning and then were treated to yummy breakfasts and great conversations. The rooms are perfect - all that we needed and more. Fresh beach towels were provided each day. In addition, they did laundry for us twice! So awesome. It was also nice to have a balcony facing the beautiful Caribbean Sea. You definitely need a car on the north side of the island, which is more quiet and less developed. But we found this side pleasant and next to our favorite beaches and restaurants. I highly recommend staying at Gloucester Place for a nice and peaceful getaway in Tobago.

My husband and I stayed here with our three grown up children (19 yrs - 26yrs) It was like staying in Paradise. Beautiful location, friendly hosts and wonderful food.The breakfasts were different each day. We requested an evening meal one night and it was delicious. Our bedroom had an amazing view looking down through the lush vegetation to the sea. All three rooms had an en suite bathroom and access to a balcony - very clean and comfortable. Bea and Win made us feel very welcome and were interesting and interested hosts. If we ever have the fortune of returning to Tobao we'll definitely stay here again!
