Stonehaven Villas


3 bedrooms, 3 baths, sleep 6

Designed by architect Arne Hasselqvist of Mustique fame, the 14 villas at Stonehaven are an interpretation of Tobago's 18th-century good life. In signature theatrical fashion, Hasselqvist re-created spacious, two-story French plantations on panoramic hilltops overlooking the Caribbean Sea (with not-so-18th-century 70-foot verandas and infinity pools). The interior elevates the motif with period-appropriate mahogany wood furnishings. Request the villa that once served as Hasselqvist's home, which is filled with his rare, personal artifacts, including two original Picasso sketches.

Rates start at $1,925 per week; 868/639-0361 or stonehavenvillas.com.
