Tobago Rental Cottages

There are a variety of Tobago holiday rental cottages. They come in many shapes and sizes, to suite a variety of tastes and budgets. However, the outstanding characteristic that distinguishes all cottages on Tobago is the warm, friendly and genuinely hospitable personality of the local staff who make you feel truly welcome on their beautiful island - whatever the level of accommodation.

The myTobago listing of Tobago Cottages and Holiday Accommodation are the definitive guide. Not only do we provide details of EVERY Tobago holiday rental cottage, but also every other type of holiday accommodation on the island. Our guide is complete - not simply an abbreviated list of paid advertisers.

Tobago cottage reviews are a major feature of myTobago and offer frank, honest and unbiased opinion. Sadly, we are only able to visit Tobago once a year, so it will take some time to review all the cottages on the island. However, over the coming years we shall endeavour to visit and stay at as many cottages and other types of holiday accommodation as possible. Our aim is to offer at least one recommendation in each accommodation category and price range.

Whether you are looking for a holiday rental cottage, luxury villa, or one of Tobago's super-luxury resort hotels, the myTobago listings provide the essential information to help you refine your choice and choose a holiday destination that will exceed your expectations. Each entry provides full contact information, plus links to the hotel's own website.

Little House On The Hill - 2 Cottages/Houses

Little House On The HillThe Little House on the Hill comprises of two cottages - one 2-bedroom unit and one 1-bedroom unit - located in Castara and surrounded by a fruit and flower garden, ideal for birdwatching. The property is just a few minutes walk from Castara beach. Both cottages have wooden decks that overlook the hillside and offer private sunbathing by day and tranquil stargazing and cool relaxation by night.

We started our 2006 tour with five days at the 2-larger bedroom cottage of Little House. Frankly, we could have enjoyed a lot longer there. The property undoubtedly makes an excellent holiday base for those who aren't bothered about being away from the beach and who, like me, prefer the wildlife and quiet solitude of locations outside the built-up area of the village.

Since our stay, the second one-bedroom cottage (known as Little House Two) has been built beside the larger cottage. We have not viewed this accommodation, so have no knowledge of the levels of accommodation that it provides.

Man-O-War Bay Cottages - 10 Cottages/Houses

Man-O-War Bay CottagesBuilt on right on the beach at Charlotteville, I still fondly remember my childhood holidays in the oldest of the Man-O-War Bay Cottages, back in the late '50s. No electricity or running water in those days (don't worry - they've been refurbished and updated once or twice since then). The original four cottages were largely used as retreats by artists and authors and the odd priest (no pun intended). They still make an interesting retreat but make no mistake, you are paying for the location and not the cottages or facilities. I can't visit Tobago without a walk along Charlotteville beach and these cottages.
