About the property

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.

Green Acre Cottage, spectacular vista of Englishman's Bay
average rating of 4.7647057 based on 17 reviews

A lovely secluded position far from the madding crowd.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed Green Acre very much - a 4WD is a must if you want to get the best out of getting around Tobago. The cottage amenities are OK but could have done with a few more basics like a kettle to make a cup of tea( we had to use a saucepan!), Two sun loungers not one would have saved me and my wife having to fight to get the bagsy towel out first each day ! . Fantastic postition and views over the bay - but the sun patio is totally in the shade after about 2pm. Generally though, excellent value and a great opportunity to get away from it all..........and chill out.

As Columbus Found Tobago

  • 5 of 5

If Columbus, on his third voyage in 1498 had climbed the hill above Englishman's Bay and stood where the Green Acre Cottage is located he would have experienced almost the same view as exists today. With the exception of short stretch of road and two distant microwave towers nothing has changed. Just forest (including the first protected rainforest in the Americas) and an incredibly beautiful tropical bay. Although there are a couple houses tucked in the trees nearby so one does not feel isolated, there are no structures visible from the large partially covered deck.

My wife and I found the cottage ideal for two people with a fully equipped kitchen, great Wi-Fi and all that one would expect in such a well maintained property. There are a wealth of activities including bird watching from the deck - bird listening cannot be avoided as there are some noisy ones. The area is delightfully undeveloped without major resorts and hordes of tourists. However, thee are many activities for the adventurous including snorkeling, fishing, hiking in the above mentioned rainforest and visiting quaint fishing villages. And yes, the many beaches are spectacular.

We plan to be back to this unspoiled Caribbean gem.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect location. A short drive into town one way or to Englishmans bay the other. Jackson made sure we had everything we needed while still giving us the space to enjoy our vacation together. If we ever make it back to beautiful Tobago, we will definitely be staying here again! Thank you 😊

Beautiful views, great comfort

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at the cottage overlooking Englishman's Bay. The property manager was so helpful with everything, the cottage is in a wonderful spot and it was a perfectly relaxing week. Everything was as expected and we were so happy with our choice of accommodation. The Castara area is a great base for exploring what are some of the best beaches anywhere, offering a super combination of great swimming, soft sand and barely another person present. Lots of great food in Castara and easy enough to see most of the island with a car from this location.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Green Acre. The cottage is the perfect size for 2, has a wonderful view and a fantastic deck. There are nice breezes and it's nearly bug free. The kitchen was well equipped and the Jacksons helped us get settled and oriented. All in all a winner.

A great couple's get-away!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week on Tobago at Green Acre Cottage and had a wonderful time! Bang for the buck with this villa, as well as the close proximity to Englishman's Bay were our main reasons to staunch in this wonderful villa. Very private with a view to die for from the deck. This is not a fancy place, but it is just right for those seeking privacy and an economical abode. Be ready for not having a/c, but between the ceiling fans and the hillside situation with ample breezes, the acclimatization to a tropical climate was quick and easy. We did close and lock the windows when we left for the day, which meant the villa was a bit toasty upon return each day, but who wants to be inside here? Just grab a cold drink, and hit the deck and enjoy the transition to evening. A car is a must. A few critter noises, including dogs, birds and some unknown animals may be heard during the night here, so if one is a light sleeper some white noise may be helpful on occasion. Castara is a short drive away and breakfast and dinner opportunities are to be found there if one is not eating at the villa. The grocery in Castara is rather limited i stock, so be sure to make a grocery stop on the way from the airport. So, spend the day at the wonderful beach at Englishman's Bay, enjoy the excellent snorkeling there, have lunch and cold drinks at Eula's, and you'll discover what Caribbeean relaxation is all about. By the way, scuba diving is spectacular off Tobago's shores. Enjoy!
