Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Tobago your home away from home

Tobago is one of very few holiday destinations in which you can genuinely and entirely relax and rejuvenate, with a truly laid back atmosphere and the archetypal Caribbean landscape which has caused so many people to fall in love with this exotic region. Tobago has refused to allow the concrete hotels and mass tourist facilities that would destroy the island, so Tobago holiday rental is mainly in the form of private villa rentals, holiday homes and delightful beach cottages.

Things to do on holiday in Tobago

The almost empty beaches are a huge attraction for those looking to take holiday accommodation in Tobago. Beach cottage rentals here mean that the dreams of sunbathers from around the world can be made into a reality, with the sun warming the azure seas and powdery sand long into the evenings. Some of the finest beaches (all of which are unspoilt and quiet) are Englishman’s Bay and Mount Irvine. Just off shore, the warm Caribbean waters are home to a massive range of tropical fish and mammals, meaning that the scuba diving and snorkelling in Tobago is hard to beat anywhere in the world. Manta rays, angel fish and millions of species which thrive on the coral reefs can be seen, and without having to worry about dangerous sharks.

The amount of wildlife which lives on the island has gained Tobago the nickname of the “Galapagos of the West Indies”. Boasting the oldest protected rainforest in the western hemisphere, Tobago villas or apartments make an idyllic retreat for nature lovers too. There are many great walks and cycle rides to spectacular view points and spots of magnificent natural beauty in Tobago, and there are many options for bike hire or guided horse rides. There are also two famous golf courses on offer from a Tobago holiday home.

The Trinidad and Tobago Carnival in February is one of the best times to take a villa or apartment in Tobago. Rum and calypso make the perfect accompaniment to the colourful costumes and large, lively crowds which descend on the island for the week.

Places to holiday in Tobago

Tobago’s capital, Scarborough is most notable for the striking Fort of King George, which stands proudly overlooking the harbour. There are also over 17 acres of beautiful botanical gardens which run alongside the fort.

Weather in Tobago

With a yearly average temperature of 30°C, and seas as warm as a bath, there is always a sensational reason to take holiday accommodation in Tobago, whether that is an apartment or villa for the wetter, yet slightly warmer period from June until September, or a beach cottage for the dry and slightly cooler (average 28°C) period from January until May.

Flights to Tobago

There are a number of weekly flights direct from the UK every week. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic run direct flights from London Gatwick (LGW) and Manchester (MAN) to Crown Point International Airport (TAB). You can be at the front door of your self catering Tobago apartment within 9 hours of leaving home.

Mahogany offers so many thoughtful spaces for doing nothing. First there is the airy upstairs bedroom with its wrap around verandah, offering views of both forest and ocean. Just the way the breeze whipped through the upper floor windows made us feel like staying in bed and looking at the birds. (How's that for something you don't do every day??!!) Then there is the hammock on the back porch, the pool overlooking the garden, the thoughtfully-designed living area... enough distractions for the children not to mind staying in a couple days. The vacation touches are balanced with utility--a full capacity washer and dryer, a well-equipped kitchen (with a lovely, new convection oven), separate full baths for every bedroom and a powder room for guests. We'd planned on heading to Castara/Parlatuvier a couple times. Instead we spent most of our week sunning and soaking at the nearby beaches, only too happy to return to our pastel "home" for dinner, cards and a drink. Can't wait to return to do more nothing!!!!!!!!!

Violet and Peter are the nicest people, were on hand when we needed them, but left us to it the rest of the time. The views from the deck across the village towards the ocean and beyond are breath taking. I could have sat there all day. It is breezy and therefore nice and cool. We slept with the windows and doors open all night, it felt like we were sleeping outdoors under the stars. The kitchen, bathroom, dining and lounging facilities are all you could need. The book collection is excellent - I needed to stay longer just to read more. The beaches, a short walk away are some of the best on tobago. A short boat ride away...Lovers Bay is secluded and beautiful with outstanding snorkelling. We went fishing with a local fisherman and caught a Wahoo - highly recommend. This fed us for the week. The local bars and shop has everything you need. The people of Charlotteville, although shy to start are friendly and happy to help. I cannot fault our stay one bit, from start to finish it was excellent. Thank you Violet and Peter we will definitely be back.

We were only two travellers so more than enough space for us both. Extremely comfortable beds, aircon, sofas and outdoor furniture. Kitchen was fully equipped with all you could need. The plunge pool was a dream to cool off in on a hot day. The birds were also very entertaining. The nearby beach and bars, restaurants, shops are excellent. Thank you Liz, we had a best time and will be back!
