Sandy Bay Cottage - beachfront beauty with breathtaking view of Caribbean Sea

Waterfront cottage with kitchen and balcony
The enchanting Sandy Bay Cottage is cozily nestled at the end of a short beach road in the historic Arnos Vale town of Plymouth, situated on the north-western coast of Tobago, embraced by the Caribbean Sea. Just 15 minutes’ drive from the Arthur Napoleon Robinson airport (Crown Point), this lovely and recently renovated beachfront cottage is great for a family get-a-way or a romantic retreat where you will experience the “real Tobago”. The entire cottage is rented all together and sleeps maximum 8 persons. If you are seeking rest, relaxation, being serenaded by the birds just steps away from the beach, then this is the place to be.
The shallow village beach and bay outside the property grounds (in front of the property fence) at the end of the beach road is good for swimming, snorkeling, fishing, is never crowded and is used mostly by villagers in the area. The bay is protected by a short seawall, sometimes not even visible depending on the season and time of year (usually fully and naturally covered by sand around Easter time, April/May for example), and there is good county-provided drainage outside the property to ensure no flooding or impacts from high tides, etc. There are no services on the beach (toilets, bar, etc). The county is responsible for periodic cleanup of the area, and even locals partake in beach and drainage cleanup activities from time to time if needed, so please be kind to the environment there and feel free to join in as well. For beaches with services, there are places like Mt Irvine Beach (great for surfing, you can rent surfboards there), Store Bay, Pigeon Point, just 5 -15 minutes away so you can plan quick excursions.
The entire cottage and grounds (upstairs/downstairs) is rented altogether for up to eight persons maximum. Upstairs has a full kitchen with modern appliances, living and dining room overlooking the beach, all open plan. There are 2 air-conditioned bedrooms and 1 bathroom upstairs. One bedroom opens out onto the veranda for a spectacular view of the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. There is also an open-air sleeping loft upstairs with a double bed over the living room as well. The open plan living room opens onto a spacious veranda stretching the width of the cottage, with a spectacular close-up view of the Caribbean Sea and the sound of jovial birds frolicking around in the yard. The third bedroom is downstairs: an air-conditioned 1 bedroom unit including a mini-kitchen and own bathroom, and a spacious patio looking onto the front yard and beach.
The fenced yard facing the beach is very spacious, with fruit trees, flowers, shrubs and good parking. There is even an enclosed outdoor shower in the yard where you can wash off the salt and sand after an invigorating dip in the sea.
A supermarket, ATM, bank, post office, hardware & fishing tackle store, gas station are all conveniently located within walking distance from the cottage, including some of Plymouth's and Tobago's historical sites (Mystery Tomb, St James Fort, Courland Monument).
Fiber Internet/Wifi is included. The property is also equipped with a modern alarm ( with guard response in the event of an alarm) and outdoor security cameras for added security, as well as burglar proofing of windows and entrance/exit areas.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this cottage offer hair dryers and irons/ironing boards. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, microwaves, cookware/dishes/utensils, and coffee/tea makers. Bathrooms include showers. Housekeeping is provided on a limited basis.

Calm and secure holiday home
Sandy Bay Cottage is in an ideal location to explore the island of Tobago. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay, situated in a lovely garden overlooking the Caribbean with its beautiful sunsets. Everything is there to make you feel safe and secure. The wildlife both in the garden and around Tobago is stunning and varied. Watching the hummingbirds and bats at the feeder is a daily treat. It is easy to walk to small supermarkets, bakery and pizza kiosk in Plymouth. There are lovely beaches nearby such as Mount Irvine and Buccoo - hiring a 4X4 is advisable because if you want to go further afield to Castara or Speyside or into the rainforest, the roads can be interesting! Peter could not have been a better host, always there to help and advise if needed. Maria and Erica kept the property organised and immaculate. A very big thank you to Peter for sharing Sandy Bay Cottage and we have no hesitation is recommending his property. We really hope we can return one day!

Great stay at Sandy Bay Cottage
We had a wonderful stay at the Sandy Bay cottage. The cottage was fully stocked and right on a secluded beach with interesting rocks and tide pools to the north for the adventurous. Close to some great restaurants. A Rental car is recommended. Hope to return for another visit.

Absolutely loved our stay.
When we reached, due to covid and wanting to ensure that at least the most commonly touched areas were clean, I started wiping everywhere. To my delight the cloth was completely clean after every surface, kitchen counters, fridge, bathroom counter etc. Even the windo sills were clean. The view was mind blowing. Every morning and afternoon was spent on the balcony looking at the ocean. There is an alarm and tons of burgular proofing but so the house is safe but I must say that we never felt the need to set the alarm. Let's just say that by the end of the trip we enquired about purchasing the property. We will definitely be booking again.

Paradise Perfection
A colourful experience with the flora and fauna which embraces this beautiful property. The beach was at our doorstep for a daily dip. Mattia was extremely pleasant and was there to answer our questions. We were thoroughly entertained by our hummingbird friends. Thanks Peter for sharing your piece of tropical delight.
