A few friends and myself stayed at Beach House and I fell in love with the place immediately. The place was equipped with everything you needed and the location was simply lovely. Being right on the beach and able to hear the sound of the surf and seeing the amazing sunsets was very therapeutic and just what I needed. Sitting on the porch in the mornings drinking that first cup of coffee and watching the birds feed on the sugar we put out was the perfect start to the day. The bay is frequented by manta rays so it is lovely to see them and the braver ones swim with them. There is a lovely local restaurant just next door for when you don't feel to cook and you are also able to catch different boat tours from right on the beach if you are so inclined. There are a lot of beautiful areas to visit in the area but you would need a car if you want to do that. I would also suggest you come with most of your food items although the village does have all the basics you would need. I did not miss not having access to TV or Wifi as there was more than enough for us to relax and enjoy. I will definitely be going back again. A warm, cozy, welcoming and relaxing destination and I will recommend highly.

My wife an me stayed for 1 week and had a perfect time. The location is the absolute paradise if you do not expect a lot of entertainment and 5 star hotel standards.
You will find everything you need in the appartments and the best beach you can think of just outside your veranda. The fishermen land their catch right beside the house and you can purchase fish and lobster, grill it youself or get it cooked in the Beach House Strand Bar. We rented a car from Porridge`s wife. He also arranged our Airport transports and was always offering help or advise. We wille definitely come again - if it is not totally booked after our review ;-)

Spent a delightful week at the Beach House in Castara. Location was steps from the beach and next to a bar/restaurant. We had the upstairs 1 BR apartment which was spacious and well-appointed and had a beautiful view of the bay. We were lucky enough to be there at the same time as the owners who stayed in one of the studios. What a fun couple. Our only complaint were the mosquitoes which came out at night but a quick spray before retiring around the netted bed solved the problem. The property manager visited daily and was very accommodating, helping us get a tire replaced on our car thereby saving a journey into Crown Point. He also provided us with a boat and captain at a very reasonable rate, and could provide connections for virtually any outing or activity. The kitchen left nothing to be desired and the barbecue worked great. I wish we had stayed longer. It was a very relaxing setting.

We fell in love with this place 10 years ago when we married on the beach in front of the beachhouse. We came back this year to celebrate our anniversary and it still is 'love on first sight'. A lovely romantic place with a stunning private view on little bay and that is a real luxury today.
