Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 5 nights




The apartment is given the name - Hummingbird - after one of the species found in our garden.

This unit is situated on the ground floor and has a magnificent view from the porch out to the Caribbean Sea and

the sunsets. You can walk from the porch just into the pool or take a few steps more to dive into the

Caribbean Sea. The apartment has a well equipped kitchen, air condition in all rooms, and wifi.

About the property

Pride of Courland

The size of the apartments is approx. 85 m2 with one or two bedrooms, one bathroom, and livingroom

two bedrooms, one bathroom, living room combined with a kitchen. There is common access to the 2 bedrooms. When you look at the photos you will find the signs for the 4

apartments and how they look inside - he same with the video.

The bedrooms have queensize beds. The apartments have wifi, cable TV, air condition in all rooms, a well equipped kitchen and swimming pool. From the garden it is direct access to the beach.

From the porch it is a stunning view out to the Caribbean and the

breathtaking sunsets. In the garden among the tropical plants and flowers you can watch hummingbirds and other colourful birds, and you can walk out the gate from the garden and do snorkelling on the beach to look at colourful fishes. Between March and July the giant

leatherback turtles are coming up on this beach to lie their eggs -

normally in late evening or night when it is dark. On this time of the year the organisation SOS ( Save our seaturtles ) are patrolling the beach to make sure that nobody are interfering with the turtles.

The seaturtles are harmless and can weigh up to 1.100 pounds.

It is an amazing experience to watch these giants coming up in the moonshine, dig and lie their eggs, and then disappear in the dark glittering sea.

All our guests will be met at the airport and transported down to the apartments, and we will make sure that the fridge is filled with food and drinks by arrival intended for the first day support.

The housekeeper Theadora comes twice a week

for cleaning and changing bedsheets and towels.

After almost 23 years on Tobago, we have established an unique network that will benefit our guests.

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 Black Rock

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.

Beautiful views from a pristine property.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the property and we were not disappointed . We are enjoying what Tobago has to offer. Still very much untouched by the tourist glitz.. Our apartment as usual was very well equipped. We enjoy cooking local produce and we were not missing anything. We loved relaxing on the porch and being able to take a dip in the pool a few steps away. Pool and garden were very well maintained and all staff were extremely considerate. Will visit again.

This is a wonderful property.

  • 5 of 5

My family spent 9 days at this property including our 10 year old daughter. We absolutely loved it. The apartment was spacious, immaculately clean, well equipped and quite comfortable. The view from our second floor apartment was beautiful. The gardens are gorgeous. We enjoyed the pool every morning and most evenings. The beach is just outside of the gate where we enjoyed walks.

The staff, especially Theadora were very responsive. Theadora really made sure that we were comfortable and that we had everything we needed. She even took us out to a local shop which would have been difficult to find on our own.

The owners were quite responsive to us. We had a couple of issues including a noisy neighbor which was immediately addressed.

Black Rock is a convenient and quiet location. We enjoyed staying in a local and non commercial community. There are several good restaurants nearby including The Fish Pot. We rented a car and drove to Pigeon Point for half of our trip to windsurf without problem.

We would highly recommend this property, and hope to return!

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This apartment/home complex is amazing! We have traveled frequently and rented many homes through VRBO and this by far was the best! The apartments are well laid out and spacious. The gardens and pool area is impeccably landscaped and designed. Only made better by the sound of the waves and the beautiful beach out front. Our family enjoyed endless days of swimming and relaxing in the pool area. As well as walking on the beach looking for shells and our kids (2 and 6 years old) playing in the tide pools out front. Followed by beautiful sunsets and dinner on the outside porch what more could you ask for?

Most impressive was the level of care that was taken with the property. The transport to and from the airport was timely and helpful. The caretaker came mid week to clean and change linens which was amazing. The landscaping and pool care was impeccable.

If you are looking for a safe, clean and beautiful apartment that is in a great location on this beautiful island look no further! We cannot wait to return!

Perfect spot for a relaxed beach holiday.

  • 5 of 5

After a welcome at the airport we were whisked away to our home for the next 10 days, a beautiful ground floor apartment with stunning beach front location.

Very comfortable property set in a pretty garden with pool on a very quiet stretch of sandy beach, very close to a village where we could have a meal or drink and buy provisions. Our hosts were friendly but not constantly seen so we felt quite secluded. We loved it so much that we have booked for next year.
