Saint Patrick Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage and guest house with pool, birds and nature trails

High on a cliff overlooking the sea, Essex Cottage commands one of Tobago’s finest views of the Caribbean in one direction and the Rain Forrest Reserve in the other. Just a short walk from the beach in the picturesque fishing village of Parlatuvier, this area is considered one of the loveliest on the island. Guests can enjoy the mesmerizing crashing of waves against the rocks, daily migrations of frigate birds as they cruise along the coast, or listen to the cries of the cocricos, chatter of the parrots, and songs of other island birds. The property, shared with Gloucester Place Guest House, is bounded by a river on one side and the sea on the other. It contains an infinity edge pool overlooking the sea, gardens that include mature coconut palms, mango and other fruit trees, and lots of banana plants. Paths lead along the hillside past the fruit trees, down to Creighton River and our own water fall and swimming hole. The Main Ridge Forest trail is just 10 minutes away.

Details for Essex Cottage 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, 2 Bathrooms

Warm and welcoming hosts in paradise

  • 5 of 5
The island of Tobago is a most wonderful getaway with Parlatuvier Bay being one of our favorite bays on the island. The vacation gods must have overseen our choice of accommodations as we fell into the perfect location with a breathtaking view and amazingly hospitable hosts. Bea & Winn not only offered a home cooked dinner on our first night of arrival, but provided excellent hiking, snorkeling and sightseeing suggestions. They lent us snorkel gear, helped us exchange money and Bea personally escorted us to a local trail head, where their Wonderdog led us on a trek up waterfalls and through dense foliage. The modestly priced cottage at Gloucester Place offered a peaceful and breathtaking view of palms, banana trees, vivid flowering plants and the distant sea. Winn brought us fresh fruits in the morning from their property. We loved the open air kitchen and bedroom that provided just enough privacy. Downstairs was another more private bedroom for our friends, but most of our time “at home” was spent on the deck relaxing, reading and enjoying happy hour. The cottage stay is not for those who expect air conditioning , but then I would recommend staying at the main house. The dipping pool, available to all guests, was quite refreshing! The only pitfall with the open air cottage was the loud bus that rolled past around 7:30 am, but the birds were already singing for us at that hour. The Gloucester Place was perfect for our party of 4 who were more interested in exploring the beauty of the island and meeting the locals than frequenting the busy tourist spots near the airport. There were plenty of beautiful beaches nearby with excellent snorkeling and tasty local food. You could hike from Gloucester Place down steep stone steps to Parlatuvier Bay where we bought fresh fish when the fishing boats docked and enjoyed “liming” with the locals to calypso music. Castara offered fun beach dining with steel drums, limbo and a drum circle. Bea and Winn are active in the community tutoring the children; so at the mention of their names, the locals took care of us. Our hosts were like having a personal friend/travel agent/tour guide all wrapped up in one. We so enjoyed their company, but they were careful to maintain their guests’ privacy. We highly recommend The Gloucester Place and cottage because it is a most lovely place to vacation, but it is so because Bea and and Winn have the special gift of welcoming, caring for and enjoying their guests. Relax and take in Tobago!!

Tropical paradise with a difference

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 21 month old daughter and I stayed in Essex Cottage for two weeks during our honeymoon in April and in a nutshell, we had the best possible time!
Essex Cottage is fantastic; it’s located in Parlatuvier which is a beautiful fishing village on the north-east part of the island. We traveled around the island for two weeks and this is the real Tobago! If you want resorts and busy beaches then you’re better off staying near the airport but if you want a bit of quiet, local walks in the rain forest, friendly locals, wildlife, amazing quiet beaches then this is simply the place to be. It’s also located not far from Castara if you want a bit more life but nothing too touristy.
Essex Cottage is great, well kitted out and furnished, clean, incredible views and Bea and Win are great hosts. They are very knowledge about the area and helped us organise car hire and various excursions. We had a meal cooked by Bea on a couple of occasions and the food was wonderful. We also used their grill to cook chicken and fish (purchased very cheaply from the local fisherman). We used the pool a lot which is great and has the best views. The landscaped gardens are amazing and very well looked after.
Thanks so much Bea and Win for making our stay so enjoyable.

Near the best beaches on the island and only minutes from the Main Ridge Forest Reserve, guests at Gloucester Place & Essex Cottage can enjoy bathing, snorkeling, trekking, bird watching and exploring the most beautiful area on the island. The village is known for its fishing and has changed little over the last 40 years. It is located between the island's world class scuba diving sites. Rest, read, relax and enjoy the view, sunbathe by the pool, or walk along the rivers to hidden water falls and forest glens. Meet the fishermen on the jetty when they come in with their catch, or try fishing yourself from a local pirogue or at the end of the jetty at sunset.
