About this listing
We see our Tobago property as the ultimate getaway from the hectic pace Westerners have become accustomed to. Be prepared to UNPLUG as this property has no on-site television or internet. Relax, enjoy Tobago.
Our 2 unit home is only a block from the beach in lovely tropical Charlotteville, Tobago! This upstairs 1 bedroom unit is bright and breezy, traditional Tobago with private bath, kitchen, and living area. Enjoy coffee in the morning and rum punches in the afternoon on the porch while watching the world go by. Queen sized bed, warm water shower, and gorgeous tropical rainforest views are some of the amenities you will enjoy while staying here. Walk a block to Man O War Bay and snorkel over to Lover's Beach, with its pink sand and tropical fishlife. Visit Fort Cambleton for spectacular sea views, or stroll into town for some fresh fish at one of Charlotteville's tiny restaurants. Pirate's Bay is only 20 minutes away by foot, where rainforest meets the sea. Your private unit is the perfect place to rest after a day or sight-seeing.
Our house is in Charlotteville, but the neighborhood is called Cambleton. It hugs Man O'War Bay and extend up into the rainforest overlooking the bay. People and friendly and helpful, respectful neighbors, happy to help island guests. Expect to become a local quickly here.
A rental car is recommended to maximize your experience in Tobago. So many beautiful beaches, so many unique and quaint villages, so much natural beauty to explore. Hiring a taxi or a driver is an option if you want to maximize your time without the stress of driving. Public transport can be time-consuming, but if time is no issue and you want a local experience, give it a try.

Beverly’s place in Charlottesville was really great. It had everything you would need for a relaxing vacation. Towels were provided; there were fans in the main rooms, which made the stay more comfortable. I felt really safe in the neighborhood and would usually just latch the front door at night, not lock it. Access to ‘Man o War’ bay was probably 200 meters from the property and you could hear the waves at night. The walk to Pirates Bay was about 20 minutes, across town, nothing strenuous. Like other travelers said, if you want food besides the basic rice, beans, fish, some fruit and veggies, then I would recommend stopping in Scarborough to grocery shop. The only thing I should mention – there are roosters. Roosters seem to enjoy waking up rather early and letting everyone know about it. Most nights this wasn’t a problem for me, as I would go to bed early and wake early but just something to keep in mind. Overall, I had a very relaxing time at Beverly’s and I would definitely recommend staying here.
We had a lovely time. My two girls loved the beach next to the house and pirates bay. Shopping not so easy in charlotteville so be prepared.
Bev made us feel very welcome in her cute one bedroom apartment! It really is just 2 minutes to the beach and a very quick walk to town. We loved staying in Charlotteville and would recommend it to anyone! It was a great place to have as our "home base" as we explored the island.
Your house in Charlottesville is very pretty.
We had a wonderful experience in this apartment and would do it again.
The place was lovely and even better than we expected-- lots of windows, very attractive, very clean, nice location a few minute walk from the main street of Charlotteville, and about a 15 minute walk to pirate's bay beach, which is lovely. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, the hot water worked in the shower. No one was staying in the downstairs apartment while we were there. Be aware that roosters are everywhere and very loud all night. This just goes along with staying in a rural location, so I don't really want to complain, but it did impact my sleep.
We had a wonderful week in Charlotteville. Beverly's one bedroomed apartment is right in the village surrounded by tropical gardens and friendly locals. We spent a lot of time sitting on the small balcony watching the birds and the fireflies. Expect to wake early with all the village sounds...Cockrels ,music, and barking dogs. You really are part of the village and that's what we loved most.
Charlotteville was our favorite place during our 3 week trip to Tobago. It was laid back and authentic. Don't miss the wonderful walk to Pirates Bay for good swimming and a glass bottom boat trip to Little Tobago from the Blue Waters Inn.
Salome,the housekeeper was very friendly and helpful and the apartment,though small, was very clean. The small kitchen allowed preparation of basic meals. The Queen bed was very comfortable and mosquito net useful.
If you are looking for the "real" Tobago,then you will love this cottage.
We enjoyed staying in Beverly's apartment. It was very cute and had everything we needed. A good bed, fan, kitchen and bathroom. It's located in Campbleton which is just 5 min walk from Charlotteville center. The beach is just 1 min walk from the apartment. We could definitely stay there again.
