Carpe Diem - Reader Reports & Opinion
Ruth And Edward from U.K. visited in February 2015 and awarded
We were lucky enough on our first trip to Tobago to stay at Carpe Diem after a recommendation from a family member.
An idyllic location with incredible views and only a short walk to heavenly bay (a beautiful carribean treasure). Our favourite part of our apartment was the balcony from which...in true tobago style... a relaxed morning was spent admiring the views and island birds!
The professor and Yvonne were fantastic hosts and me and my fiancé feel Carpe Diem and Castara is a home away from home. So much so we are now looking to have our wedding in this incredible to Tobagan village

The place to be if you want to have a brilliant relaxing holliday!
We were there for the first time and it asks for more!
Chris & Yvonne (the owners) are friendly and helpful to getting you started to explore the area.
It is a super location with a beautiful uphill view to the small village of
Castara and the Castara Bay.
A variety of colourful birds came each morning on the deck, even the Blue-crowned Mot mot was regularly seen on the breakfast deck.
Castara is centrally located on the Caribbean side of the island, with a beautiful beach (See the boathouse) and friendly locals!
We are going to do some savings for the next visit!

We stayed at Carpe Diem for 2 weeks in September, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in our studio which was ideally located in the village, we were able to access all amenities with ease.
The studio met our needs, we received clean bedding etc every 3-4 days which was great,mtge view from the veranda was splendid and we could while away hours admiring the view and observing the wildlife and birds that lived in the garden.
Chris and Yvonne were really good hosts, they were able to advise us of various information that helped us during our stay.
In all we would recommend this accomodation.

For the second year running we have stayed at Carpe Diem in Castara and are intending to go back again and again! The villa and location are everything you could want when you're ready to escape from your hectic daily lives and relax, the locals are friendly and welcoming and can't recommend it highly enough

My wife an myself spent 9 nights at Carpe Diem Villa. It was the perfect place to relax after those busy Carnival days in Trinidad. We stayed in one of the Studio Apartments which was absolutely clean and fully equipped for self-catering. The bed is big and very comfortable. The balcony has a lovely view over Castara Bay and is surrounded by lots of pretty plants and birds. Everything is well organised, fresh linen and towels are provided every 3-4 days. Within short walking distance you can find little shops for your basic needs. The few restaurants in the village offer excellent fresh and cheap dishes. The locals are very friendly and entertaining. Just have a "lime" at the little rum shop across the road on a friday evening and find out by yourself. PS: Beware the Puncheon!
