Nature View Apartments - Reader Reports & Opinion
Carole Anne Ferris from Trinidad visited in July 2010 and awarded
Sadly this did not work out well for me for several reasons.
I had asked if there was anywhere to leave car which was actually only a temporary place. It was suggested that I park in the street after I arrived.
The room was adequate and although I noticed some wild life in the room, small spiders and mosquitos I decided to buy some spray and that would be fine. I live in Trinidad and am used to this. However, after a very long day for me working as a photographer I returned about 11 pm to find the room with many fairly sizable spiders jogging about. Then after nearly treading on one the size of my hand I decided to see if I could get help. Everyone was asleep and I summised that it was unlikely to be better the next day/night so I left that night extremely exhausted and needing to find somewhere to sleep.
I called the next morning to explain and with too much grace perhaps offered to pay for the night even though I had not slept there and had to pay for another place as well. However, far from sympathetic the owner Wolf charged me more than agreed and said he could not find any spiders that morning. I did not see then during the day either. He could have behaved more honourably but chose not to do so therefore I could not recommend this place unless you happen to like sharing a room with a variety of 8 legged arachnids.

This accomodation is not recommended for those with a heart condition or weak legs. But if you don't mind a little excercise on the way home, we can give the Nature View Apartments a warm recommendation.
The apartments are not fancy but are equipped with the essentials, and most importantly very clean.
Wolf, the owner, is very hospitable and helpful. Any information you need you can ask him. He can also arrange transport for a very reasonable price.
Also: no mosquitos (as opposed to accomodations closer to the sea).
During our 2 weeks in Tobago we stayed at different locations, but in the end we decided to go back to beautiful Castara and stay at the Nature View again. We will definately do so the next time we go to Tobago.

Wir verbrachten 3 wunderschöne Wochen bei Wolf in seinen
Nature View Appartments.Wolf unser Gastgeber war stets um unser Wohlergehen bemüht.Er organisierte einen tolle Wanderung mit unserem Freund Nasho(..der später auch toll für uns kochte) durch den Regenwald.Die Appartments sind sehr schön gelegen inmitten der Natur.Die Zimmer und die Küche sind sauber und trotz der Hitze auch ohne Aircondition angenehm kühl.Zu Fuß ist Castaras schöner Strand und die Ortsmitte mit zahlreichen Geschäften in 5 Gehminuten zu erreichen.
Wir freuen uns schon Wolf und seine nette Famillie hoffentlich im nächsten Urlaub wiederzusehen.
Grüsse Andi und Steffi

We spend christmas time in this appartment and experienced lot of unforgettable stories. From renting the car to christmas with locals. Wolf is very very nice guy, I am thinking of assume his way of life when getting older:)It is close to beach, close to bars, close to shop and close to nature. Definitely approved!!!
