Beach House - Reader Reports & Opinion
Robert And Heather Jones from U.K. visited in March 2015 and awarded
We have recently arrived back from 10 blissful nights in the Beach House,
Castara.The accommodation had 2 verandas,one with a gas barbecue,outdoor shower and tap to get the sand from the amazing beach
off our feet.
The other veranda had a table and chairs,a beautiful view of the ocean and
an opportunity to view the wonderful bird life.
The apartment itself possessed everything you needed for a memorable
holiday,spotlessly clean,comfortable bed and cooking facilities if you did not
want to try the local cuisine.
The position of the apartment is right on the beach and convenient for the
Boat House bar and restaurant.A few beers are important if you wish to sleep through the sound of the ocean.
Castara is a lovely 10 minutes walk with one or two bars and restaurants.
We loved the place and the Beach House would also be excellent for a group holiday,each apartment retaining it's privacy.
Thank you for everything,
Robert and Heather

Myself and a friend had an idyllic week staying at the Beach House. Many plus points include the fantastic location, the cleanliness, the bird and reptile life! The sound of the waves( can't understand why people object to this???), the excellent beds and mosquito nets.
Only downside was a general feeling of dampness- it was very hard to get clothes and soggy beach towels dry, even on the small washing line- perhaps cutting back some of the vegetation might help, with boh the view and the air circulation?
Will definitely be back!

It's now best part of a fortnight since we got back from Tobago and I have been sorting out our photos which has prompted me to write this report.
Coconut heights was just as we hoped and imagined - just out of this world!!
Everything worked out well - we kept bumping into Porridge and he was always very helpful. He sorted my fishing out with Anaconda. We had couple of trips out but mostly we stayed in the village and just enjoyed the life and the friendly nature of both villagers and tourists alike.
It was superb holiday and I am sure we will return.

Ideal for the beach clean but basic. no tins/trays/ pots to use in the oven rendering it a bit useless but lots of saucepans and the barbi belonged on a scrap heap . but as i said before ideal location very quiet apart from a couple off occasions when some locals decided to park out side playing exceptionally loud music in their car . bar next door is great make sure you go on wedensdays bongo night great fun and the rum punch will knock you off your feet so watch out!! i would go again .

Myself and 3 friends stayed at the Beach House for a week, we loved Castara and the Beach House so much that we ended up booking in for a further 6 days for the end of our 3 weeks in Tobago. The rooms were clean and tidy and had everything you need. The most amazing thing is waking up in the morning to the sounds of the waves and the birds, opening the blinds and gazing out to the crystal clear waters is nothing short of a perfect start to the day. The veranda overlooks the bay and is a great spot for breakfast/cocktails/bbq's (which we did plenty of).
We saw plenty of stingrays and tropical fish, and even spotted 2 or 3 turtles which was a once in a lifetime experience to swim with them. Bingi shop up the road near the liquor store provided all we needed, including his lovely wife's excellent homemade coconut bread and pumpkin bread which you have to pre order the day before. The avocados were the best we've ever had and the selection of groceries was always fresh and in season. The people of Castara were accomodating and friendly and we met some good friends on our stay who arranged boat tours, island tours, bbq's on the beach, and trips to the local waterfall which is highly recommended. Porridge and Janell were very helpful and friendly and provided us with car rental and 1 or 2 trips to the Castara retreats where we indulged in some of the best cocktails we've had, made by Kenny. Don't be afraid to ask for anything here-everyone is happy to help with any questions you may have. The beach house was even better than we expected it to be and we will be returning one day soon, my favourite place yet!
