Boatview - Reader Reports & Opinion
J. Graham from Canada visited in March 2015 and awarded
Spacious room with all the necessary amenities. Stunning view overlooking Castara Bay! Sharon, the owner, was so friendly and very accommodating. Room not as cleanly as it could have been on arrival, however we loved the location so much, and after considering the reasonable cost for the room, we cleaned it to our own satisfaction. Perhaps the cleaning staff needs to be checked up on before guests move in. All things considered, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Boatview and will recommend it to others.

Our third month long stay at Boatview - as idyllic as ever. A lovely welcome back from all the locals - such a friendly place. We are already planning our next visit!

First off, I have to say that Sharon is the most accommodating "host" ever. You have no idea how much she helped me on this trip, with my ankle being broken and having to hike up to our room. Having said that, let's get to the "Report":
1. The room is beautiful and roomy - with 2 fans and a lot of space. The kitchen is very well equipped. Ice was left behind and the freezer was awesome. All was extremely clean.
2. The deck area is amazing with views straight across both bays. Had a great time feeding all the birds and geccos and really enjoyed my mornings sitting out there on the deck.
3. My only complaint if you want to call it that was the heat. I couldn't get away from it and could barely sleep. Even with the 2 fans directly on me. This could however, perhaps be because it was very humid that week? And the folks over at the Beachhouse (close to the ground) also said it was very hot for them to sleep (we have stayed there and never found it that hot). So this could have been just the weather that week, and perhaps normally the 2 fans are enough.
Thank you Sharon for all your helpful shopping/running around etc. etc. that you did for us, especially the way you were feeling! it is much appreciated! xo. Sue & Gil.

The view from the large deck is spectacular! You have to be quite sure footed to climb up to the apartment, and its best to have a torch with you as the lights don't always come on.
Don't expect UK style fixtures and fittings. The kitchen has everything you need. The toilet/Shower room is compact and it shouldn't come as a surprise that it is a cold water shower. Sharon and her hubby are brilliant and the drumming/limbo on a Wednesday evening at the Boathouse are a must. Food at the Boathouse is fantastic and great value for money. The Boathouse and Boatview appartments give you a wonderful Tobago experience
