Perfect location, with a great 2 person apartment which was ideal for a romantic retreat. Only a 5 minute walk to the beach and right in the centre of Castara, we could not have asked for better. The service was great and we found that if we needed help with anything we did not need to worry about asking. The... More

We enjoyed the location of Hidden Cottage, set up a steep slope on the hillside but still near to the centre of the village and beach. We hired a car for the whole of our 17 day stay which gave us the freedom to explore the island and drive up the access road. Most people would not find the access... More

Hidden Cottage is so remote that we found that the family in the second unit lived 3 blocks from us in Toronto. However - Having heard about the beautiful island of Tobago, we expected that it was going to be lined with hotel towers. Surprisingly neither Tobago nor Trinidad had all that many accommodations. If you want to be in... More

Our group was in dire need of a vacation. We researched countless properties in Tobago, looking for somewhere to relax, somewhere peaceful and beautiful where we could recharge our batteries without feeling too isolated from everyone else. The Mot Mot rental in Hidden Cottage was everything and more we could have wanted! Here is a breakdown of our experience: Communication... More

Such a shame that this delightful cottage has been neglected. We arrived early evening in need of that great British tradition a cup of tea....but there was no kettle and no matches to light the hob, and guess what we had booked this apartment in November! The kitchen is in need of refurbishment, cracked tills and a well worn wooden... More

We thank you for your feedback and apologies that your visit did not live up to your expectations. The kettle should have been there for your arrival – it was being replaced after the last guests left – and come up to the village the next day. We have asked our housekeeper to recheck and replace any kitchen wares and... More

We spent 2 lovely relaxing weeks at hidden cottage, we stayed in the mot mot which had a lovely ballcony that ran all around it. We spent many happy hours in the hamock watching the exotic birds comming to feed of the bird table, it was probably the fault of this holliday that turned this party animal into a bird-watcher!...
