We stayed there only a short while but were completely satisfied with the apartment. The view is breathtaking and Joshua, the owner, is very nice and helps out with issues around the apartment if needed. I can only recommend it.

Castara Bliss apartments and the town of Castara were exactly as we had expected from websites and visitor reports.
Joshua Williams and his family were very welcoming hosts, with a relaxed and very considerate approach. Joshua certainly lived up to his own vision of wanting to ensure that anything his guests needed was taken care of.
The apartments have everything that we needed and are very clean and tidy. The view from the apartment balcony is beautiful and entertaining (nightly football training!)and is ideally situated for the beach and town. The Coffee Shop is also strategically situated for a cold beer before tackling the steps back up to the apartment or for a really good cooked breakfast! DJ's Mini market was very friendly and had many of the basic supplies that we needed for self catering and Cascreole Restaurant on the beach is also highly recommended.
The atmosphere in the town and on the beach is very relaxing, absolutely no trouble and we felt very safe, we met lots of lovely people.
We rarely go back on holiday to the same place twice but would love to revisit Joshua and Castara Bliss in the future.

Stayed at Castara Bliss for two weeks in February and had a wonderful time. Found the apartment as advertised-with all the necessities.The only extra that would have been nice would have been a BBQ/grill.The owner, Joshua was great - very accommodating.

I have travelled quite a bit and I count myself very lucky to have experienced this little piece of paradise. This was our second time being in Castara and specifically at Castara Bliss; last year in Tobago we were 3 and this year, 11! Convincing our friends to join us this year was not at all difficult. And as soon as they arrived, they knew we had chosen well! Imagine waking up (yes, to roosters and dogs, but the gentle fan and ocean breeze will mask these sounds), stepping out on the veranda and seeing a flock of green parrots fly and squawk animatedly across the sky; other birds such as bananaquits, blue-grey tanagers and even motmots are regular visitors. The ocean provides a lovely backdrop to the village, soccer field (who needs the NHL?!) and homes below. It is a mere 2-minute walk to Castara Bay, and the beach is gorgeous. Perfect for swimming, sometimes body-surfing, and tanning (plenty of shade as well!) with a cold beer in hand. Magnificent frigate seabirds, boobies and pelicans rule the sky, while you can catch a glimpse of harmless manta rays cruising in the water or order freshly caught fish of the day! Castara is a lovely, sleepy village (there is an ATM but be prepared to use your visa with the machine) with some amazing restaurants (you will need t&t, perhaps also U.S. dollars). Castara Bliss is a peaceful place, clean, with kitchen amenities. Joshua and the Williams family, including Chino (who runs the great Coffee Shop), are absolutely wonderful hosts. You will not go wrong with Castara and the Castara Bliss apartments! Enjoy!

This was the second year in a row that we stayed at Castara Bliss, and this year we brought more people along. Joshua is the best host one could ask for. the view from the porch is great, the atmosphere at the Coffee Shop downstairs super, and the beach is but a 3 minute walk away. I would highly recommend Castara Bliss.
