SeaScape - Reader Reports & Opinion

Wow... what can we say about SeaScape? Well:
(1) It's gorgeous. It overlooks Little Bay off the Castara Heavenly Bay coast. The view is immaculate - pristine waters, lovely and quiet beach, rugged hills off to the distance. You get to listen to the rolling waves crash onto the beach - you'll forget about the world while you're here.
(2) You can swim / snorkel / dive into the waters in Little Bay. (I got an ear infection at the most unopportune time, so after dallying about in the water for the first 2 days, I was relegated to tanning on the beach and not dipping my head below the surface of the water....does it sound like I'm complaining?!) You can swim with the fishes, we saw Rays swimming right up to the shore (a family of three) on a daily basis, snorkel along the coral to the eastern end of the bay too. A few respected tour operators (such as Island Girl) bring their catamaran out for a visit to Little Bay - you get to stay there.
(3) The people are friendly - Lavorne and Rollings are great. We got chatting about the tropical fruits on Tobago and Lavorne plucked us a few lemons (bursting with flavour!) and brought us some rose-apple which we've never tried before. And there is a great restaurant (Castara Retreats) up the road which makes the world's most delicious Chocolate Mousse (from Tobago's cocoa plantations).
We had a great stay at SeaScape - the apartment was modern, with all of the kitchen utensils and gadgets you have at home, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are nicely decorated. Oh, and you'll be speechless when you see the view of the bay from the living room! The next time we are back in Tobago, you bet we are staying here.
Thanks for the lovely opportunity David -- you made it not only feasible for us to stay, but also so welcoming.
Best, Hesha & Julian

Leigh and I had a great time. Rolling and Lavonne were very accommodating. Castara is exactly what we were looking for and I'm very glad I found Seascape. The view is the best in town!! All the visitors I spoke to said they'd wished they booked Seascape.

This is a wonderful place to stay, in a very special location overlooking the beach in Castara. We felt very lucky to be able to stay in such great accommodation. Its very nicely done out, with some lovely stylish touches and a well equipped kitchen. We loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the views of the bay, the sunsets and just watching the world go by, which includes manta rays coming right up to the beach and the fishermen bringing in their catches. We loved it and we cant wait to go back.

Seascape in Castara was perfect for us. We stayed for six nights with our two adult sons. We each had our own bedrooms and bathrooms. The house felt like our very own summer cottage. It has everything you need to live independantly. The location was removed from busy tourist hubs yet provided us with easy access to food and restaurants. The beach was right at our doorstep. Absolutely lovely.

We Stayed in Seascape for 2 very short days, but very enjoyed ourselves and will most certainly be back.
My wife and I have been going to Castara for as long as I have been visiting Tobago. Over the past 6 or so years we have noticed Castara becoming busier and busier, and when I booked our trip I honestly thought it would be the last time before having to hunt out another quiet, tranquil location for our retreats.
Not so!! nestled low in the hills above little bay, from balcony which spans the entire width of the cabin you can barely see how developed it has become. When we stayed it was lovely and quite - just the sound of the waves to put us to sleep and then wake us up in the mornings.
I most definitely will be visiting Seascape again. High Quality cabins, with many subtle details that give it the edge. The Manager/Caretaker Rollin was also excellent.
Would recommend without hesitation!
