About this listing
This is our family's Caribbean getaway... steps from Man O'War Bay in remote and tropical Charlotteville, Tobago. The house has 2 bedrooms and one bathroom, a living room and small kitchen all decorated with bright colors, beautiful local Trinidad/Tobago artwork, and a comfortable collection of new and antique furnishings. The main bedroom has a comfy queen bed and the large second bedroom is furnished with 2 double beds. The bathroom has a warm-water shower (an amenity in Charlotteville!)...no tub! Or shower outside in the private garden, surrounded by nature. The accomodation is admittedly simple, but very clean, funky, fun, spacious, and decidedly tropical OLD CARIBBEAN. This very cool and simple home is set in lush surrounding, just "a block," mere steps from the beach at Man O'War Beach, walking distance to Pirate's Bay (undisputedly one of the most beautiful beaches on Earth), small shops and restaurants. Our property is famous for the mango tree, but also boasts lemon, orange, plantain, banana, papaya, as well as many varieties of ginger, heliconias (one hand-carried from Australia), jasmine, Pride of Barbados, etc. Your view from the many windows is of tropical flowers, lush greenery, and rainforested mountains. Warning: the house is not equipped with wi-fi (although wifi is nearby) or cable so you mut be prepared to unplug and unwind here.
Charlotteville is a beautiful little fishing village tucked between the Caribbean Sea and the rainforest and the Atlantic Ocean. It is "Old Caribbean" as in before flocks of tourists, before cruise ships, before beachfront hotels and condos defined the landcape. If you like chatting up the locals, looking at exotic birds, hiking the rainforest, exploring deserted beaches, snorkeling or diving in washy waters where the Atlantic and Caribbean meet, this is your place. Charlotteville is a safe place where people look out for each other and my kids have run the beaches and village free since they were very small. The property is SMOKE-FREE; please NO SMOKING anywhere near our property!
