About Stein and Edel Foss

My wife and I are born and live in Norway in a little town called Skien - the same place as we grew up and went to school.

We are now both retired and spend lots of time in our house in Tobago.

Stein and Edel Foss purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Stein and Edel Foss chose Trinidad & Tobago

My wife and I went to Tobago for the first time in 1993. We fell in love with the beautiful island and the people there, and continued our travelling to Tobago every year. In 2005 we were lucky to get the opportunity to purchase a piece of land almost on the beach by the Caribbean Sea. The same year we build our house on the premises. By now we have travelled back and forth to Tobago for 20 years. The name ' Pride of Courland ' was

taken from the old wooden house that were on the premises before we built our new house.

What makes this apartment unique

The place is unique and has a breathtaking view out to the Caribbean Sea and the sunsets you can enjoy from the porch.

The coconut trees overhanging the beach together with a wide variety of colourful birds, a lush garden with tropical plants and flowers combined with the sound from the sea.

Excellent.... wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful vacation in Tobago. The apartment was very clean, with good furnishing and close to the beach. We swam in the pool everyday and it felt great after we spend the day sight seeing. We rented a car and drove all around the island to all the bays and small towns. Tobago is a not crowded with tourist and very laid back. This is exactly what we had in mind. The luxury apartment made it all the better.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Bluebird - family of four. The apartment was very clean, the pool was great and the garden around the house beautiful and well maintained. The sound of the ocean soothed us each night as we sat on the balcony. The help from the driver and house keeper were outstanding - Theodora was like a private concierge - charming and helpful and a wonderful cook. My 16 year old son even commented that it would be hard to find a place as nice to stay should we return for another visit to Tobago. We also met the owners who take great pride in the property and thus it is very well cared for, as are those that help maintain it.

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

That was our first time visiting Trinidad and Tobago. After a few countries we've been before and various hotels and apartment this was by far one of the best places I've stayed.

The apartment was very very clean, very well equipped kitchen, books and magazines to read.

The view is breathtaking. You can sit on the deck for hours watching the ocean and the sunset. They have beautiful flowerbeds and lots of different birds visiting the garden.

Stein and Edel were wonderful hosts. They are well connected with locals and always have good advice if you are looking for things to do around tobago.

I had millions of questions in advance and they never seemed to get tired of answering any of them which I very much appreciate.

Nestled in a more quiet area, the way to adventure is never too far. Just take a taxi or rent a car to attractions near by. Even on foot you can reach the next beach or local restaurants and shops.

I would definitely come back....in fact, we can't stop talking about how great it was!

A delightfully maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. We were pleased with the cleanliness of the suite and did not feel things were lacking in the kitchen facilities or elsewhere. Enjoyed clean towels and well kept loungers etc. Staff were right on the mark.

Listing was accurate. We probably would rent a car a little longer. I think it is fairly necessary if you would like to try restaurants in the general area and not have to walk back during the evening. Traffic on the road is hectic at the best of times. Not the best for walking.

We loved the availability of fresh fish available. Not a problem to purchase like so many other of the Caribbean islands. We also thought the shopping for general provisions was very good.

I would recommend this property to a friend looking for a more relaxing vacation which is what we were looking for so thumbs up!!!!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

The Pride of Courland Mot Mot apartment is perfect. It is beautiful, spacious, super clean and complete with every thing needed. The location is private and ideal. Mr and Mrs Foss have all bases covered. A driver picked us up at the airport (& returned), the house keeper was adorable( checked on us and cooked a wonderful dinner for us). We also had a recommended driver who guided us all around the island. Our vacation was ideal and we will return!

May I also recommend the Rainforest tour with Harris MacDonald.

Faultless

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our two week holiday in Tobago staying at Pride of Courland in the lovely Blue Bird apartment.

Everything was very well organised from our pick-up by Steve of Island Investments at Crown Point airport on arrival, to our departure 14 days later.

The apartments are very comfortable and well equipped and had everything we needed for a relaxing self-catering stay with good quality furnishings and fittings. Theodora, who comes in to clean etc. is exceptional. She cooked us a typical local meal one evening of pork stew with crab dumplings (yummy) as well as organising a fishing trip with a local fisherman in his boat for my husband.

We took advantage of Washie’s car hire and toured all around the beautiful island of Tobago during our stay.

A barbeque is provided for each of the apartments and we tended to barbeque one night and then eat out the next. There are many exceptional restaurants to choose from close to the apartments, our personal favourite being The Shirvan Watermill. The Seahorse Inn has lovely food but the service is somewhat lacking. The Fishpot is also a very good and less formal option.

We have visited Tobago on many other occasions but our visit to Blue Bird apartment in Pride of Courland will live long in our memories and we would definitely recommend it to friends and family – Fantastic.
