Jacaranda House stands on a ridge of the old Grafton Estate
adjoining a bird sanctuary with magnificent views of the Caribbean
Sea and above two of the best known beaches in Tobago. The house is
newly built, designed by one of Trinidad's leading architects who
has incorporated West Indian features and classical lines into a
modern design. It has, as a major feature, folding louvre doors on
three sides which are made of beautiful local hardwoods, controlling
the amount of light and air that flows through. The result is a very
airy and spacious house with high ceilings, cool floor tiles and
prevailing breezes sweeping through.
On the ground floor are two air-conditioned bedrooms, each with a sea view and en-suite shower room, a TV/Games room which can also accommodate two additional guests, and a laundry area.
The upper floor is reached by an impressive circular stairway bringing you into the splendid living and dining area which opens onto a verandah on three sides, ideal for alfresco dining. The air conditioned master bedroom and bathroom also opens onto the verandah. The kitchen is fully equipped and easy to run.
The house is set facing northwest above its own magnificent 30 foot swimming pool with a vanishing edge overlooking the sparkling Caribbean Sea, a stonework pool deck and lawn area. The house is surrounded by tropical plants and trees to create shade and to provide an abundance of mouth watering fruit. You can prepare a barbecue in the garden and eat by the pool or under the bougainvillea covered shelter.
Jacaranda House is only 20 minutes drive from the airport, the capital Scarborough and nearby to the Mount Irvine championship golf course. There is a wide range of restaurants within easy reach and other attractions include snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing and sailing.
Further afield are rain forest trails, waterfalls and beautiful deserted beaches. Between April and June the great leatherbacked turtles return to Grafton and Turtle Beaches to lay their eggs - a sight definitely to see. Jacaranda House is ideal for everyone who enjoys a relaxing pleasurable holiday in surroundings of unrivalled peace and beauty.
