Man-O-War Bay Cottages - Summary Description
10 Cottages. Reader Satisfaction Rating
Built 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.
