The Space

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!

  • Going back to Charlotteville after 10 years and staying in the same house was really great!
    The location is superb, basic but confortable, the possibility to cook is a "must" since in the village there are few places to eat and they open when they have time and not in the evening, the neighbourhood is friendly!!
    When I will go back to Tobago I will surely stay here again!
    Thanks Beverly

  • Beverly's place greatly exceeded my expectations! The location is perfect with a small road to the beach and a short walk to the heart of the village. The guesthouse was nicer than my NYC apartment and I instantly felt at home. I found absolutely everything that I needed right in the house. The property is filled with lush plants, flowers and fruit trees...I was in heaven. Charlotteville is a beautiful, quaint fishing village with friendly locals. A true Snorkeling, fishing, and liming heaven! The vibes are quiet but, the vibes are sweet. I feel very lucky to have blindly booked such a wonderful, temporary home. I will be coming back, for sure.

  • We had a beautiful stay at Beverly's house in Charlotteville, unfortunately it was way too short! The house is close to the beach and has everything you need.
    Thank you Beverly, for making this experience possible.

  • We loved our time in Charlotteville. The house is so cute and with lots of atmosphere. Salome, the housekeeper, is simply amazing and takes care of your every need.I can absolutely recommend this place to anyone.

  • We Just returned this week from a very relaxing stay in Charlotteville. We found the accomodations to be perfect for what we were looking for. Litterally steps from the beach, a short walk to town either down the scenic road or on the beach, we ventured to town both ways quite often. Past reviews indicated that there wasn't much selction for food but we found adequate spots to fill our appetites, there is a roti shop in town that makes a delicious veggie roti or chicken if you like or the little pie shop that makes fresh potatoe pies in the morning, yummy for breakfast! As well as Friday nights the Banana Boat, just steps away from Beverly's has a BBQ night for you to enjoy while you relax to some great music.
    The house is basic no internet, no tv but we went to get away from all of that so we didn't even miss it, there is no airconditioning but there are a couple of fans that circulate the air nicely and there is a nice breeze that cools the house in the night for sleep. As for the internet, and we could not seem to meet up with Salome, but at the Banana Boat, they do offer free wi-fi if you need to conncect with home for any reason. We would definately stay here again, maybe even make it a yearly stay.

  • We had a Wonderful time at Beverly's place. Everything is as described. If/when we go back we will definitly try to stay there again. If you want to meet people in your travels staying Charlotteville is the best place to stay in Tobago.

  • The house is located very near to the city of Charlotteville. You can walk the beach to there and will meet a lot of friendly people that will sell you fish or help you out with various things. You're also close to Pirate's Bay that is the best beach we have experienced at Tobago. Salome is very helpful and lives close to the house. The house in itself is fine; nice kitchen and living room, bathroom with hot water and beds. Particularly if you're a couple you will enjoy the facilities of the house.

  • Best 5 days a girl could ask for!

    After reading the description and all of the reviews I have to admit we were expecting something a little less cottage-y, and with more fruit trees ready for picking. However, after spending a few days in Beverly's guesthouse we quickly understood why all of the reviews are rated excellent and why no one has anything negative to say!

    The place is perfect for what it is. A cozy Old Carribean cottage, 1 minute away from the beach, and in the greatest town a traveller could ask for. While Charlotteville isn't exactly touristy, it is most definitely tourist-friendly. The locals are amazing!! They were so helpful and generous to us, we didn't want to leave! Anything you want, need, or had a question about, they were happy to help you or to point you to someone that could help.

    Beverly was fabulous to book with. She responded quickly to questions, and offered amazing contacts. Her housekeeper Salome as well as Salome's family were terrific, and Beverly's preferred cab driver/tour guide, Bullet (Churchill) was amazing fun!

    It was an excellent trip, thanks to Beverly and the people of Charlotteville and I really hope to return soon! I definitely suggest this guesthouse to anyone thinking of making a trip to Tobago!
