Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Trinidad & Tobago, Caribbean your home away from home

The magnificent twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago is a colourful, lively and exciting place to take a holiday property, and with the growing numbers of cheap flights to Trinidad and Tobago, holidays here can be taken regularly, and not only once in a lifetime. Whether you are looking to rent self catering accommodation in Trinidad and Tobago for a sensational beach holiday or a peaceful holiday in lush tropical surroundings, there is a holiday here for everyone.

Things to do on holiday in Trinidad and Tobago, Caribbean

There is so much to do from a Trinidad and Tobago property that you would need many months to sample a bit of everything that there is to offer. However, on of the most notable events is the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival, which is often claimed in tourism circles to be the greatest cultural show on earth, and a delightful time to take self catering accommodation in Trinidad and Tobago as the islands come alive with the dance, music, art and the smell of mouth-watering food. However, all year round, there is always plenty of singing and dancing to see (and do), and a huge number of shops and restaurants in Trinidad and Tobago where you can get a taste for the authentic lifestyle of this beautiful country.

Of course, a huge amount of your holiday in a Trinidad and Tobago apartment will be spent on the beaches. The glorious white or pale pink sands which surround the island are simply ideal to relax on, soaking up the sun and the atmosphere, or to use as a base for swimming, sailing, surfing, snorkelling and learning the steel-pan drum! There are some challenging breaks for surfers staying in Trinidad and Tobago accommodation, and plenty to keep fishermen excited!

Nature lovers will love renting property in Trinidad and Tobago too. From the Leatherback Turtles nesting on the East Coast of Tobago to the barracudas, whale sharks, manta rays and dolphins which thrive in the caves, canyons and corals which make up the country’s shoreline. Inland, tropical forests and unspoilt swampland are the perfect locations for bird watching too.

Places to holiday in Trinidad and Tobago, Caribbean

Trinidad is the larger and noisier of the two islands. It is both the industrial and commercial centre of the Republic, with the Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago’s capital, leading the way.

However, it is the smaller of the town islands, Tobago, which is the largest draw for tourism. Tobago is the tranquil heart of Trinidad and Tobago, with blissfully quiet, pale pink beaches surround by the azure waters of the Caribbean. Tobago is a beautiful place to stay for nature lovers too, offering not only exceptional coral reefs, but the oldest piece of protected rainforest in the Western Hemisphere.

For sailors, Trinidad & Tobago are in easy reach of Venezuela, Grenada, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & Grenadines, Martinique and Dominica and other islands.

Weather in Trinidad and Tobago, Caribbean

Average temperatures in Trinidad and Tobago are between 24°C and 26°C at any time of year. The dry season lasts from January until May, and the constant trade winds mean that windsurfers and sailors are happy all year round staying in Trinidad and Tobago apartments at any time of year.

My husband, my parents and I totally enjoyed our stay. The property is clean and well kept with a simple Caribbean style decor. There is a lovely garden with fruit trees and flowers...I had a nice nap under the mango tree one afternoon and enjoyed the cool breeze and sounds of the birds singing. There's a great view of the sea from the veranda...we had breakfast there every morning while watching the birds, relaxed and watched the sun set in the evenings and sat out every night before going to bed. The beach, which is cleaned every morning, is a just few steps away and great for both sea and sun bathing. Debbie's Homestyle Kitchen is right around the corner, serving delicious meals in a delightfully rustic setting and the village bar and mini mart are close by. Maria, the property manager was professional and pleasant and gave us some good tips Peter, the owner, is very friendly and helpful and always responds promptly. Excellent customer service. I highly recommend Sandy Bay Cottage. I miss it already and will definitely be back. Wishing Peter and Maria all the best Arlene :)

The facilities are so well thought out, from the cds and movies provided (with hilarious reviews included!) to the great big fridge freezer with ice maker - and of course the refreshing air con in the bedrooms. This property is fantastically maintained, spotlessly clean on arrival. We were cooked a delicious meal (BBQ chicken, homemade salad and creamy rice&beans to die for) for when we arrived along with the warmest of welcomes from Sharon, the housekeeper. Sharon called us the next day to offer advice on trips and recommended a brilliant, knowledgeable guide, Fitzroy, to take us into the rainforest on an experience of a lifetime. We saw hummingbirds, trapdoor spider nests, parrots galore as well as about 20 small to huge waterfalls through the forest. It's probably the best value for money day out on any holiday we've ever had. Not to mention Fitzroy is a blast, really fun company. The roads are a bit bonkers, so only hire a car if you're accustomed to driving overseas, the guides and local people that you interact with are all SO generous so getting about we found no problem at all. The phone in the house is surrounded with local taxi cab and tour guide cards etc. The larder of items (bread, eggs, bacon) etc. when you arrive is a lovely touch, and we found the kitchen had every appliance and utensil etc. we needed for the holiday, we cooked most evenings, including fish freshly caught and brought in on the jetty by the local neighbours. We were a little daunted at first, but they couldn't have been friendlier, asking us which of the fish we wanted and how many steaks to cut for us (all descaled and chopped up for you ready to BBQ!). The BBQ was easy to use, the water pressure for the shower perfect, the pool is clean and just the right size for relaxing and enough to do a few "I'm on holiday" strokes, nothing too strenuous. Finally, that view. The pictures don't do it justice. We were speechless for the first hour of sitting with a beer looking out at the sunset across the bay. Honestly the view from the deck will live with me for a lifetime. We found ourselves out there for breakfast and every evening. When our little boy is a older we'll be coming back out here with some family - the dining room table is huge and there's lots of seating - all comfy and in great condition. We really can't enough positive things about what a stunning holiday this was, we can't wait to go back. Tom & Joey 2017
