GREEN ACRE COTTAGE, SPECTACULAR VISTA OF ENGLISHMAN'S BAY

Saint John Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Self-contained cottage for two with all amenities

Green Acre is situated 250 feet above sea level and offers a panoramic view of the bay and the Caribbean Sea. The backdrop is the main ridge, approximately 1,800 feet high, and one of the oldest forest reserves in the western hemisphere. Englishman's Bay is a pristine beach that has been ranked in the top 10 beaches in the Caribbean in numerous magazines. It is a great beach setting and also includes excellent reefs on both sides of the bay for swimming and snorkeling. The nearby village of Castara also offers a beautiful beach and swimming and snorkeling area. There are also nice restaurants and local entertainment and cultural events available in Castara.

The cottage sits on a one acre lot in a natural setting. It is an idyllic place to get away from it all.

The interior has been completely up-dated and features cabinetry with beautiful Caribbean cedar. There are also all new appliances and furniture. It is a perfect place for two people to enjoy a relaxing and romantic interlude.

Fantastic View of the Caribbean Sea

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at Green Acre Cottage we were amazed at how beautiful the setting is. We were surrounded by nature in a wonderful private setting. The house has a deck that makes you feel as though you are perched over the bay.
Englishman's Bay was excellent for snorkeling and we saw so many fish and coral.
We plan on making another visit next year.

a spectacular, view, lovely cottage and very safe

  • 5 of 5
we loved the location and quality of your cottage. the price was fantastic too. 'king' david was a great asset, picked us up at the airport, gave us good advice and a guided tour to the cottage. he was very helpful.
only 1 issue: no internet, the ad listed internet. not a big deal tho. other than that there was no issues, and nothing that was unexpected for a remote cottage on an island like Tobago.although the cottage feels isolated, there are other occupied homes nearby, you just cant see them. but this makes it feel very safe, and it is in a sort of 'gated' type of development. as safe as you can get with this level of privacy and quiet.
we thought it was fantastic, and a great base for exploring. we put 700kms our jeep in a week! loved the beaches, and the 'back in time' feel of Tobago. much better than Trinidad. felt like Dominican republic 25 years ago.before all the big hotels and over-development. thank you very much!

You will wake up in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed at Green Acre Cottage in Tobago and it exceeded all our expectations! The owners of the cottage were a great help with arrangements, along with the property manager as well. The cottage is nestled in the perfect location and has spectacular views. The property manager told us the first night "In the morning, you will wake up in paradise," and we did just that! The cottage has a short drive or a nice walk down to the best beach on the island (at least in my opinion). I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone traveling to Tobago for a nice relaxing vacation!

A glorious vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were able to spend a week at this wonderful cottage overlooking the magnificent bay. It was just as described and David was very helpful in making arrangements for transportation and providing information about local attractions. We rented a car for the duration of our stay, which gave us plenty of freedom to travel the island. We were able to explore the many beaches and rainforest walks. Beautiful! The cottage was well equipped and they even provided a cell phone, which we were able to use by purchasing a phone card. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is traveling to Tobago and looking for a private and serene place that feels very comfortable and clean while enjoying the stunning view.

wonderful location!

  • 4 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying at this “cottage” in the first part of January 2013 and would highly recommend it to others. My wife and I try to go to the Caribbean once a year to break up the long winters in Minnesota. One of the criteria is we try to go somewhere new every other year. Having never been to Trinidad or Tobago it was on the list. We settled on Tobago because it is a much more laidback island. The locals call it “liming.”
The house or “cottage” is situated overlooking Englishman’s Bay which is one of the best beaches that I have been to. From house to beach is a 2 or 3 minute drive and would be walkable if hills don’t bother you. The house is a one room efficiency in the shape of an L. It was perfect for my wife and I and would be perfect for a family as well. Mornings and evenings were spent on the patio watching sailboats bob in the bay. Days were spent swimming and longing at Englishmen’s Bay or exploring the island. At night the stars come out and the sound of the sea can be heard through the windows. The closest town, Castara is a 10 minute drive and offers restaurants and some nightlife. We spent New Year’s Eve in Castara and the only caution is would give is beware of the rum punch they are strong.
This rental, for the price and location can’t be beat. My only reservation is writing this review is that the secret of Tobago and this cottage will get out.

Looking to get away from the crowds, Green Acre is truly the place to be, overlooking one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Englishman's bay is a mysteriously uncrowded beach, that is great for swimming and snorkeling.
