Overview

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.

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.

Lovely cottage with a breathtaking view over the Englishman’s Bay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. The cottage is very well equipped for 2 people and the housekeeper is taking care of all things inside and outside the house, so we were feeling like at home. And then every morning this stunning view ...

Even better the second time around.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from our second stay at Green Acres in as many years. We never tire of the view of Englishman's Bay below the cottage and all the things to do in the area. BTW - Englishman's Bay is rated as the #3 attraction out of 101 possibilities in Tobago by Trip Adviser. Because it is secluded there are never many visitors; just enough so one does not feel isolated. And yes, Green Acres cottage works perfectly for two people.

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.

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.
