Welcome to Ohana Villa
house that has to be seen to be believed, Ohana is unlike any other
property on the beautiful and peaceful little island of Tobago. It sits
high up on the end of a small sandy cove and enjoys open and sweepingly
dramatic views across the ocean.
Ohana is a
Hawaiian word for family rest-house The owners of this very special
house lead very busy lives and conceived it as a haven of peace and
quiet that they could escape to with family and friends to share some
quality and simple back-to-nature time. Now they invite you to share its
magic. On arrival you’ll find the stressed city person disappears, the
swim suits and pareos go on and the pure ocean breezes begin to work
their relaxing charms.

trade winds to keep the house cool. The garden is full of tropical and
exotic flowers and fruit, and runs down to a small sandy protected cove,
protected by a reef just out in the bay.
