SeaScape - Reader Reports & Opinion
Tim Boon from U.K. visited in February 2010 and awarded
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.

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.

Seascape is a charming accommodation with an awesome view overlooking the ocean and Heavenly Bay beach. It was kind of like being in heaven. Located very conveniently to beaches, snorkeling, restaurants and the fishing village of Castara, we were able to get along without a car and walked everywhere. The English-speaking people of Castara were very friendly, especially if you greeted them first with a smile and "good morning" or whatever the time of day. The
fresh fish and native foods were delicious with no worries of eating the food and drinking the water. Alibaba Tours, located a few steps from Seascape, was very helpful in arranging our snorkeling tour and tour into the Rain Forest. Their guides were delightful and knowledgeable.
We loved our peaceful stay at Seascape in Castara, Tobago.

We spent a wonderful week in Castara and I am convinced this is the best place to stay. SeaScape is beautifully designed and very comfortable. The location on Little Bay is ideal, the views from the private deck are amazing, the people are friendly, and just about everything you need is right in town. You are a short walk from several restaurants, groceries, and lots of local nightlife (bring ear plugs if you think the Wednesday night steel pan band at the Boathouse will bother you).
The beds are really comfortable, the shower is excellent, the kitchen is well equipped, and the view alone is worth the price.

This is an amazingly beautiful place overlooking the best beach in Tobago! I couldn't believe my eyes looking out over the balcony every morning. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a little piece of paradise.
