Seascape is a wonderful place to stay. The view and location are the best, and the unit itself is extraordinary: clean, well-appointed and comfortable.
My husband and I are already planning a return trip, for a longer period of time.

Very relaxing location. The place was great and was just what we were looking for. The open concept was awesome, and many birds joined us for breakfast and/or lunch. Bugs were no problem at all, and we did not even use the bed netting. Great location to swim every morning and to snorkel on the reef just to the east. The little town provided everything we needed within walking distance, including meals and groceries. Although there are restaurants, Mrs. Hazel at the top of the street is the best. She cooks awesome meals out of her home, that you could enjoy back at SeaScape while over-looking the ocean. Doc also is a great cook, and extremely friendly. Also very friendly, and very helpful, and very nice are Rolling and Lavorne. They made sure we had all that we needed and answered every text very quickly. Lastly, David was awesome. He answered every question we had pre-booking and pre-departure. And, when we had a very minor hick-up, he went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied. If you truly want to stay in the best spot in Castara, then book a place at SeaScape.

My family (three teenaged kids, spouse, and my parents) stayed at SeaScape renting both SunSet and WaveSong during the third week of March. The SeaScape property is beautiful and only surpassed by the spectacular surroundings of the Castara itself. David was incredibly helpful prior to our renting his property answering each of my many questions thoroughly and promptly via email, and upon our arrival in Tobago his associate Rolling was there to meet us - even though our flight was quite a bit delayed. Castara village is as beautiful as all of the other reports suggest and the people we met there were very friendly and helpful. The beach at Heavenly Bay (right directly below the SeaScape appartments) is great for swimming and snorkelling and lounging with the Boat House restaurant just next door for a cold drink or a bit of shade when necessary. For restaurants in Castara I would recommend Castara Retreats, Cheno's Coffee Shop, Boat House, Marguarite's and Cascreole........all good choices. Although both SeaScape appartements are outfitted with very usable kitchens we didn't cook once during our stay (we were on vacation after-all). Alibaba's tours in Castara has great options for both land and water excursions. We opted for a Rainforest tour which was fantastic. Make sure to take a walk to the waterfall and swimming hole after breakfast at Cheno's Coffee Shop (trail entrance just across the football pitch behind Cheno's) - easily visible trail and only a few minute walk through a nice forested area along a stream. We didn't rent a car in Castara as you can easily walk anywhere within the village. My family and I have rented many places in the Caribbean and as far as value-for-money goes SeaScape at Castara ranks at the top. Caster itself also ranks very highly in my books - it doesn't have the same infrastructure of more travelled Caribbean spots - but it is a safe, friendly, laid-back beach environment. Worked great for us!

My family and I stayed at Seascapes in Heavenly Bay Castara Tobago this past March.
The price was very reasonable for a weekly rental in this sought after location on Tobago.
If you prefer local life and relaxed times surrounded by natural beauty you've found your destination.
There was an abundance of natural acoustics from bird calls to roaming dogs and rosters and of course the ocean waves to lull you off to very restful sleeps.
If your adventurous rent a car to travel around Tobago or you can hire a driver who will be confident of the roads. Driving the roads to get to Castara is an experience.
It's a beautiful location for families or couples, the locals are very accommodating to tourists.
Lime, eat and then lime again is the way on Tobago.

We spent 10 nights in Wavesong apt at Seascape, Castara. Stunning location with phenomenal views of the bay. Amazing sunsets. We loved watching the harmless stingrays from our balcony as they glided around unsuspecting swimmers. Great pickup and drop off to airport by Rolling. He is very knowledgable of the island. Lavorne was great for answering our numerous questions. David was excellent to deal with, replying to emails very promptly. Truly a vacation that we will never forget. The village of Castara was a wonderful experience with friendly locals. Be certain to genuinely wish each person "good morning" or "hello"....they will open up and willing to strike up a conversation. I admired several vehicles and commended the owner to which they were very appreciative and smiled from ear to ear.
