Beach House - Reader Reports & Opinion
Sue & Gil Law from Canada visited in November 2012 and awarded
We added on a week at the Beachhouse to the end of our 2 week stay in Grenada last November. Alison and her parents were extremely accommodating last minute, and we appreciated it.
This time we stayed in Palm Corner (next to Breadfruit Grove), as upstairs Coconut Heights was unavailable (we wanted to try it for the week)! Oh well, another time...
Palm Corner is exactly the same as my previous review of Breadfruit Grove.
As always, Porridge & Jeannell are very accommodating, check on you each day, give you tips on where to go, what to do, rent you a car. They are managers for the property, but really, are "part and parcel" of the Beachhouse!
Not much new to report, was the same as our last review. All very good....
Same recommendations I made to the owners' daughter: we would have loved our own beach loungers, but now Ali Baba's is renting them out, so that's good...
And because of the privacy and "get away from it all" feel, Wifi will also never be added to the Beachhouse. This was a small problem for us, as we had to search around to find it for my husband's job to get in touch with them back home, check on our flight & whatnot. Would be a great addition.... But thanks to Sharon and Chino for getting us connected!!! So there's always a way.
Otherwise as always a great, private place to stay!

We stayed at the Beachhouse (Breadfruit grove) for two weeks. It is a lovely place. Perfect located at the best beach "little castara beach" at Tobago. There are two beaches the little and the normal beach and we found out the little is the better one. The house is very clean and full equiped with everything you need. A big barbeque grill belongs to the house where you can make the fish you buy from the fisherman from castara.The view from the deck to the sea is fantastic. Every 3 day's the towels will be changed.
The boat house restaurant&bar is next to the appartments located directly at the beach and they over good food and perfect drinks and even if it's so close there is no disturbing noise during night.
Special thanks to "Porridge" his son "Jacky" and his wife "channel" who takes care of everything and everybody.
We had beautiful scuba dives with "Richie" the owner of the Padi dive base divingintobago.com. The best dive instructor we ever had. Very special thanks to him.
Thank you all for that beautiful holidays.

We had a fabulous stay at the beach house. Pure relaxation amongst nature. From our terrace alone we saw hummingbirds, manta ray in heavenly bay, shooting stars and rainbows. Castara is a special place and whilst other places we saw weren't perhaps as simple in some ways as the beach house, we knew we were in the best spot. A very special holiday which we still miss every day 2 weeks on.

We had a fantastic time at the Beach House (one of the 2 downstairs studios), i honestly can't think of anything that could be improved or enhanced, it was exactly the type of accomodation that we were looking for. The house was very clean, and there was a good supply cutlery and kitchen gear to use.
Porridge was there when we arrived to show us around the house, just like we had arranged by phone, and came by a couple of days later to check if everything was okay, all very non-intrusive and extremely friendly.
We really enjoyed every bit of it, and were actually disappointed when our departure date came.
The location so close to the beach, and with the Boat House next door is absolutely perfect. We also really appreciated the rest of Castara and surroundings, it was definitely the best part of our 2 week holiday.
I'm certain we'll come back to Tobago sometime soon, and have absolutely no doubt that we'll be back at the Beach House in Castara!

We had a wonderful time at the Beach House (staying two weeks in one of the 2 downstairs studios). For us it was just perfect! Our idea of paradise.
We really enjoyed being so close to the beach; only three steps away from the water with a nice snorkeling spot directly in the bay (we even saw a turtle and stingrays).
Sitting on the balcony reading and watching all kind of birds that come to the feeders was just great. The sundown’s where fantastic! (In the evening there are even little fruit-bats coming to the feeders, if you attract them with small pieces of banana ;-))
The house is really beautyfull! The apartment is very well equipped, especially good quality cookware. Great barbecue!! We can’t think of anything missing!
Special thanks to the owners Carol and Graham, who made us feel so very welcome! Many thanks also to Darlington, who took us on a great tour to the rainforest and of course to Porridge and Jeanelle for the help and the easy car rental.
We will be back ;-)
