This is the our first time to the Caribbean and Josh's Sea Level Guest House us just right for us! We had a studio apartment with beautiful greenery all around. The best was the short walk past 1 house to the beach. There was no air conditioning, but a big fan was provided and that was plenty for us. We would ask for the bug netting next time for there are invisible mosquitoes that you don't feel but leave bumps on you that itch! Josh was friendly and helpful in anything we asked him. We would definitely go back and stay there again. It is right in the middle of the island and you can rent a car right in Castara for exploring the Island. You don't need a car for everyday because there are restaurants and stores in the village. They also have a bakery on Tuesday and Saturday where you can order your bread in the morning and pick it up in the afternoon. Music on Wednesday night in little Castara and music at the Coffee House on Friday. We had the trip of our life and cannot wait to do it again.

We stayed 6 nights in Sealevel guesthouse over New Years Eve 2015/16. A very good place to come down and relax. Joshua is always there when needed and ready to help and find solutions. Some apartments have sea view others don't, but you are surrounded by the noise of the nature everywhere. Our apartment was ok, but needs some refreshments.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful 5 night stay at Sealevel and could not have been more satisfied with our experience. The studio was small and very minimal, however it had all the essentials. We had a small kitchenette that we used to prepare most of our meals (made from fresh produce purchased from one of the few small convenience stores up the hill or down the hill). We did have a minor issue with the toilet, but the staff of sealevel were eager to help and got the situation fixed right away. We had a wonderful balcony off our apartment that we spent most of our time on (when we were in the room). There were a few tobagonians that were around doing repairs and maintaining the place and they were SO HELPFUL and SO NICE. Sealevel is walking distance to the restaurants and bars in the area, but there is no noise being generated from these establishments so you really feel like you are secluded and "off the grid". If you love birds, this is place is perfect. We had hummingbirds on our balcony every day, not to mention the many other roosters and chickens that call the island home. Sealevel is also about a 4 minute saunter down to the beach, which is gorgeous and perfect for swimming. Castara itself is a lovely little fishing village, and you really are in the heart of it staying at Sealevel. Every morning, my boyfriend and I got up to go watch the fishermen and all the young men from the village pulling in their massive fishing net that spanned the entire bay, and towards the end of our stay, they even let us help!!! If you want a true tobagonian experience on a BUDGET (very inexpensive accommodation!!) Sealevel and Castara is the way to go!!! The only problem is that you wont want to go home...which it seems is a common sentiment as we met MANY expats from canada and the UK that feel in love with Castara and have made it their home!

We just got back from Tobago where we stayed in Castara at Sealevel Guesthouse. A great place to stay, a great view. We were very well welcomed by Joshua and his staff. Clean, pretty quiet, very relaxing.

I stayed 4 nights at Sealevel Guesthouse. I was nicely received by staff who also helped with everything you asked about. Host Josuha was very nice and the whole guest house had a homely atmosphere. Clean and tidy the room. Sea views and proximity to the rainforest and plenty I birds. I will gladly come back here.
