SeaScape - Reader Reports & Opinion
Fam. Van Kessel from Netherlands visited in January 2012 and awarded
We stayed at Seascape for five days in january 2012 with our three children aged 11, 9 and 2.
We loved the house! We've been at some places around the world, but the view over sea at this point is sure one of the best we think.
The house has got everything you need. We cooked our meals ourselves some evenings and at others we ate at the beachrestaurant just a few steps below the house. It's the only restaurant at this point, but why need more?! Lovely kitchen and very friendly people!
Castara itself isn't that big, but for us it was oke. Some shops, nice restaurants, great beaches. And lots of opportunities to see more of the island.
We want to thank the local manager Rolling for taking us from and bringing us to the airport. We were a bit worried when our plane from Trinidad to Tobago was delayed, but Rolling was just patiently waiting. And allthough we arrived to early for our 'official'checking-in time, he and his wife got the house clean and the beds changed very quickly so that we did'nt have to wait to long with our children. Our youngest one really needed to take a nap after travelling so long! Great service!
We think Seascape in Castara is a lovely holiday-accomodation for a true relaxed vacation. If you're looking for nature, a calm way of living, great food and friendly people, then this is your place.

Had a lovely stay in Wind Song at SeaScape in November 2011... The ocean views are beautiful, as is the beach just below. The amenities from a January 2009 rebuild give it a notch up from most on Tobago, and the open-air style makes you feel close to nature. The owner, Dave, was responsive and easy to transact with via email/web. If you're looking for a place with little to do but relax, you've found a wonderful spot.
Among the highlights...
There's a short (1/2 mile) hike into the rainforest to a waterfall and swimming hole. The trail begins in the southern corner of the the Castara village soccer field.
Cooking up just caught fish from the local fishermen.
Most of all, I enjoyed swaying in the hammock overlooking the ocean...

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed Seascape. David was quick to respond to my inquiry as I was a bit last minute with the booking. The caretaker Rolling and his wife were really sweet and welcoming. The place itself was tasteful-vacation/cottage vibe but modern and clean. The view is spectacular. The kitchen was well stocked. Some beer and water were complimentary. There was a boogie board and binoculars that my nephew enjoyed. Castara in general is my favorite spot in Tobago. We had a really positive experience all around. We took some day excursions and were always happy to return to seascape to rest. My only complaints was that the fridgerator wasn't working perfectly (but i brought it to owners attention) and the circular mosquito nets are not my personal favorite. In my opinion these complaints are so minor. I highly recommend seascape and any of Davids properties. Also seemed that the village had a positive opinion of David and his wife, which was nice to hear.

We stayed at Seascape in July 2011 for 10 days in the Sunset apt. We were 2 adults, me and my wife, and three kids, 1, 9, and 11 years old.
The house is very good for a family, with two large bedrooms and an excellent kitchen and dining room, with a view more than spectacular. In the morning you can look the sea and the sunset is a very good moment.......
Rolling, the man who follows the houses, was very kind and available, despite the birth of a baby in the days we were there.
I can surely recommend this sistemation!!!!

Apart from the number of stairs to get to the property - which got slippery and difficult when wet - we were very satisfied with the accommodation which had fabulous views over the sea, and was near to a lovely beach!
For convenience a microwave would have helped but we also liked the charm of not having this modcon.
I will highly reccommend and will be very happy to stay there again.
