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.

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 :)

                                                                                                    We had a wonderful stay in beautiful Parlatuvier. 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
