The enchanting Sandy Bay Cottage is cozily nestled at the end of a short beach road in the historic Arnos Vale town of Plymouth, situated on the north-western coast of Tobago, embraced by the Caribbean Sea. Just 15 minutes’ drive from the Arthur Napoleon Robinson airport (Crown Point), this lovely and recently renovated (2016) beachfront cottage is great for a family get-a-way or a romantic retreat where you will experience the “real Tobago”. The entire cottage is rented all together and sleeps maximum 8 persons. If you are seeking rest, relaxation, being serenaded by the birds just steps away from the beach, then this is the place to be.
The shallow village beach and bay outside the property grounds (in front of the property fence) at the end of the beach road is good for swimming, snorkeling, fishing, is never crowded and is used mostly by villagers in the area. The bay is protected by a short seawall, sometimes not even visible depending on the season and time of year (usually fully and naturally covered by sand around Easter time, April/May for example), and there is good county-provided drainage outside the property to ensure no flooding or impacts from high tides, etc. There are no services on the beach (toilets, bar, etc). The county is responsible for periodic cleanup of the area, and even locals partake in beach and drainage cleanup activities from time to time if needed, so please be kind to the environment there and feel free to join in as well. For beaches with services, there are places like Mt Irvine Beach (great for surfing, you can rent surfboards there), Store Bay, Pigeon Point, just 5 -15 minutes away so you can plan quick excursions.
The entire cottage and grounds (upstairs/downstairs) is rented altogether for up to eight persons maximum. Upstairs has a full kitchen with modern appliances, living and dining room overlooking the beach, all open plan. There are 2 air-conditioned bedrooms and 1 bathroom upstairs. One bedroom opens out onto the veranda for a spectacular view of the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. There is also an open-air sleeping loft upstairs with a double bed over the living room as well. The open plan living room opens onto a spacious veranda stretching the width of the cottage, with a spectacular close-up view of the Caribbean Sea and the sound of jovial birds frolicking around in the yard. The third bedroom is downstairs: an air-conditioned 1 bedroom unit including a mini-kitchen and own bathroom, and a spacious patio looking onto the front yard and beach.
The fenced yard facing the beach is very spacious, with fruit trees, flowers, shrubs and good parking. There is even an enclosed outdoor shower in the yard where you can wash off the salt and sand after an invigorating dip in the sea.
A supermarket, ATM, bank, post office, hardware & fishing tackle store, local restaurant (Debbie’s Homestyle Kitchen), gas station are all conveniently located within walking distance from the cottage, including some of Plymouth's and Tobago's historical sites (Mystery Tomb, St James Fort, Courland Monument).
Internet/Wifi is included. The property is also equipped with a modern alarm and surveillance system for added security.
