Lillibets - Reader Reports & Opinion
Pam & Den Butcher from U.K. visited in January 2009 and awarded
Lillibets was above our expectations and although a bit of a climb up from Heavenly Bay the views offered and the birds feeding from our balcony were fabulous. Everything we needed was provided in the accomomdation - though we preferred the lower room where we first stayed as the bedroom was air-conditioned.We have already booked for next year!

We spent 10 days over the Christmas period, 2008, at Lillibets. Just perfect, and exactly what we we looking for. I'd recommend it to anyone. Hotels are definitely not our thing. The location is stunning and everyone we met, from local guys to other guests in the bay made for a real community feel. Fabulous to have mot-mots in the bamboo just off the balcony. Its good to see sustainable tourism and hope it stays that way.
Janis Baltacs from Latvia visited in November 2008 and awarded
Very nice location, nice and tidy house - plenty of space, all necessary equipment, nice and caring hosts. We booked all house as a group for two weeks.
Two things that did not mach information that was obtained beforehand was: air conditioned rooms are two, not all and practically it is not possible to share big room (there is a curtain and sofa as if there could stay e.g. none-couple)if you are not a couple.
Definitely recommend this place.

The apartment was as we expected and fine for our needs. The agent was extremely helpful and very courteous, going out of his way to help. This helped to alleviate our upset at the near squalid conditions of the beach and immediate surrounding area which was strewn with litter and food. We were there for 3 weeks and this made our stay uncomfortable as we did not want to use the beach. This was even more upsetting because the use of the beach so close to the apartment was one of the reasons for choosing this place. The agent did make efforts to clear up the mess, which we greatly appreciated, and this did make a difference but unfortunatley only for a very short while.
The friendliness and helpfulness of the locals made our stay memorable but we would not recommend apartments in this area to anyone else.
Christian And Mc from U.S.A. visited in August 2008 and awarded
An amazing place. A huge balcony to take in the view and the breeze. A great kitchen to cook up some of the fresh fish bought from the co-op. There were all the basic supplies but we left behind some awesome little spice packets that we found in a local kiosk. Hopefully someone enjoyed it.
Bruce is wonderful and was a pleasure to talk to; it was a breeze settling in (drop luggage, strip off clothes, go to beach).
The beach is just a minute away down the hill. Going back up, is a hike, so if you're creaky or disabled, this place unfortunately will not work for you.
Bruce even lent us some snorkeling gear. woohoo!
highly recommended to anyone visiting castara, unless we'll be visiting, in which case, the top left apartment is a horrible horrible place;)
