Very nice apartments with good provisions and accommodations directly on the beach in Charlotteville. Quaint and comfortable with all of the necessities for a great vacation. Communication for reservations was a bit challenging and non-existent at times which was frustrating when trying to confirm reservations from abroad, however everything worked out well. Improve the reservation system and response to inquiries, and this would definitely be rated a 5.

Cholson Chalets is a charming gem in a charming little fishing village. Located directly on the beach in Man ´O War Bay you can hardly claim to find a better location for your holiday.
We had a full week, and the friendliness and hospitality of staff was what first struck us. The room was great (we god one on the upper floor with a balcony overlooking the beach and felt very lucky), furnished with old furniture and you can see the whole place is being properly maintained.
Lying just off Charlotteville "centre" means you do get to hear some of the sounds of the town, including if there is some entertainment going on at the square nearby. It also means you have under a minute´s walk to get to everything and that is really nice. The town closes down early anyway so no loss of sleep in this place.
Check out Pirate´s Bay that is a 10 minutes walk and gives you one of the most picture-perfect beach I have ever been to.
Definitely a recommendation.

Lovely place near the sea, very clean room, cleaned every day, friendly staff. Charlotteville is a nice place to dive; just get to Caroline Hardie at Shark Shacks. She'll get you to lovely divesites. In the evening you'll find a clean room at cholston's. Right beside the seaside, the largest minimarket in town and a lovely restaurant. And close to the trail that leads to Pirates Bay.

Just before Easter I spent a week at Cholson's Chalets in Charlotteville. This was my third visit there and, as before, I found the staff friendly and welcoming, the rooms very clean and the location excellent. The rooms are cleaned daily and the immaculatly white linen and towels are changed regularly. The main beach, restaurants and shops of Charlotteville are a short walk away and Cholson's Chalets are the right end of town for the picturesque Pirates' Bay. Our rooms were right by the water and we had wonderful views of the sunset and local fishermen selling their catch.
I would certainly recommend staying there.

We just got back from 5 weeks on Tobago and Cholsons was our favorite place to stay - we stayed at 4 others and looked at another 4-5 and ended up going back to Cholson to stay for the last 10 days we liked it so much - first what a great town Charlotteville is - now if bars and restaurants are your thing you may want to stay in the Crown Point area - not that the Charlottvilliens do not have a good time – we were there during the Heritage Festival and it was a fun party- but there are only a few places to eat and the bars are the Tobago style of a small place to have a beer - the Man of War beach is a state run beach with a lifeguard and a great bar to lime (as in have a beer or two and talk Cricket) – Cholsons is right on the bay – they are a short but steep walk to Pirates Bay which has to be one of the most scenic places on the island and an even shorter walk to the Man of War beach - course you can also go right out from the apartment into the bay to swim or join all the local kids jumping off the pier – I like to snorkel so went straight out from the apt. and swam over to Pirates and saw some very nice reefs along the way. We stayed in the cottage for one week – 2 bedroom first floor apartment – good breeze kept us cool and never had any mosquitoes– there is no AC but we were never uncomfortable – the 2 upstairs apartments have wood floors and were built in the 20’s & 30's but have been very well kept up –very traditional architecture – we got the left side upstairs for the 2nd week – 3 bedroom – all have great kitchens and there are mango, lime and banana trees right out back. The people at Cholsons add so much to the enjoyment of the place – Dawn, Salome and Ms Pat the owner were so nice to us – I recommend Cholsons as a relaxing, comfortable, convenient and wonderful place to stay – if you are looking for sun, sea and nice people you can’t beat this place
