SeaScape - Reader Reports & Opinion
Amber from U.K. visited in April 2010 and awarded
We stayed in the two bedroom house 'Sunset' for 10 days with our two children (5 years and 8 years) and had a brilliant time. It was an amazing location with a totally overwhelming view of the beautiful bay and so near (2mins walk) to little bay beach and the boathouse cafe. You couldn't be better placed. Inside the house is lovely, spacious, comfortable, perfect for the setting with very comfortable beds, good mosquito nets, adequate kitchen, and as you will have heard many times before the best shower ever next to the top bedroom. The ever present sound of the sea (whilst not for everyone and takes a while to get used to) for me personally was deeply relaxing and pleasurable. Castara is a beautiful unique place which is totally safe, friendly and utterly relaxing. Rollin and Laverne who look after the apartments are helpful and kind and the community of Castara is extremely welcoming. We loved eating roti for lunch at the almond tree cafe on big bay, we loved our walks to the waterfall, the cakes from the bakery, the fish from the fishermen, the food at Cascreole, lots of great meals and drinks at the boathouse, a really fantastic boat trip with 'Dangles' from Alibaba's and wonderful swimming and snorkeling.The 'fruit king' came up to the apartment and sold us delicious fruit and don't miss the 'ice cream king'. Food is generally expensive and the supermarkets limited so make sure you shop before you get to castara and don't expect fruit and veg to be cheap. Seascape was the most comfortable and relaxing accommodation to enjoy Castara with incredible views, lovely balconies and designed with an obvious love for the bay and with elegant simplicity. I have no hesitation in recommending it whole heartedly!

I stayed in the 'wave song' apartment at seascape and loved every minute of it.
It is a beautiful place to stay, amazing views of the beach below with pelicans diving, on a quiet bay. Magical. I highly recommend it.

Superb panoramic sea-view (even from the shower) - best location in Castara - comfortable and cosy. We would have liked to stay longer and hope to come back some day.
Best regards to you David and also to Rollin!

We loved this place. It was comfortable, beautiful view, convenient to beach, comfortable bed. We would have liked a few more pots and pans in kitchen, but otherwise it was perfect. The caretakers were pleasant and helpful.

This was our forth visit to Castara and our first time at Seascape. We stayed in both apartments and loved them both. The views from the balconies are absolutely stunning. One could spend the whole day sitting out, watching the wildlife and in particular the birds. We spent hours watching pelicans seagulls and frigate birds swirling around and diving for fish.
The apartment was well designed for relaxed holiday living and was equipped and furnished to a very high standard. Absolutely everything was provided and in excellent condition. The property manager was friendly and helpful and gave us a full briefing when we arrived. He also checked a couple of times to see whether we had any problems. The apartment is located in the centre of the village, close to several small homely restaurants and only 100 yards from the beach. The local people are friendly and there are lots of oportunities to take guided tours and boat rides. One of the highlights of the day is watch the fishermen landing their catches and preparing the fish for sale to allcomers.
Castara is a fun place to stay. It's laid back, uncommercialised yet provides all the facilities that are needed to have a great time. There are sufficient shops for daily living but we found it useful to do a big shop before we came to Castara. There are several bars and restaurants but our favourite was Margarites where we ate several times. My wife enjoyed a wonderful lobster there. I tried goat rather tentatively, but it was delicious.
We are already in the process of booking up for next year.
