First of all, Mr. Leekit was very friendly, easy going and offered assistance every step of the way, booking was a breeze, good value for money, comfortable room, flexible accomodation options, kitchen facilities available, excellent location walking distance from Pigeon Point, Store Bay and many shops and restaurants. Will definitely stay again and suggest to friends and family!

I had a great time in Tobago and Andrew was very accommodating not only with suggestions on places to go and things to do. Even when carribean airlines cancelled all the flights due to a strike, Andrew was very helpful in trying to figure out alternatives. The place is close to the flea market and sometimes the music can be loud during the day. It wasn't a problem for me but if you are looking for absolute silence, think twice.

Andrew was on time in picking me up at the Tobago airport, even though it was 11:40 in the night and my flight was delayed. The room was clean and was exactly what I expected for the price. Andrew also gave some tips on how to get food and coffee near by. The pigeon point beach is walking distance from here. Also, he was very approachable and friendly. I would come here again.

Nous avons passé une très très bonne semaine dans cette guest-house. Le propriétaire est serviable, son accueil est chaleureux , son hospitalité est remarquable. Il tient parfaitement son établissement qui est toujours calme : on se sent comme chez soi. L'emplacement est idéal : les plages sont accessibles à pied comme celle de pigeon point.

On a rencontré grâce au propriétaire de "Candles in the wind" un couple charmant Vinsh et Patricia, vivant à Tobago . Vinsh est la personne idéale pour vous faire découvrir toute l'ile et tous ses secrets. Vous pouvez lui faire entièrement confiance pour passer d'agréables moments à Tobago.

I stayed in the dorm accommodation of candles for a week in February. Andrew was kind and helpful and the place has a great location. Many nice beaches nearby as well as lots of places to eat. I would gladly stay at candles for my next Tobago vacation!

Had a wonderful first visit to Tobago, mainly because of our stay at Candles in the Wind. Choosing the right place to stay can make all the difference! Highly recommended for a person looking to learn about another culture or one who has been around the block a few times. Rooms are clean, common areas (refrigerator, appliances, dining tables, porches, balconies), are an added plus. Very convenient location to Crowne Point airport, not far from swimming beaches, Pidgeon Point, diving, nightlife, and Scarborough. As many have said before, the owner Andrew, is why this place is great, a good friend to have.

Stayed at Candles in the Wind for 3/4 days during January. It is a nice and friendly guesthouse with good amenities, nice kitchen, clean rooms, bikes to rent, good wireless internet and a great host in Andrew Leekit who will go out of his way to help you! I would certainly recommend this as the place to stay in Crown Point!

Very nice accommodation, rooms were clean and well maintained and en suite was perfect size. Owner very friendly and makes you feel welcome, will also do pick up and drop off for Sunday School (a big party on Sunday night) and the airport (which is around 15-20 minutes walk away. Pigeon point is a short walk or drive away. Perfect for a couple of nights in Tobago on a budget.
