Little House On The Hill - Reader Reports & Opinion

Meeting Maggi and staying at her place was an all-around great experience! After various emails, I told her that I wanted to hang out in Pigeon Point the first day until the sun set and she offered to pick me up after. I liked the service option and she charges the same as a cab would ($50 USD if I remember correctly). The drive to Castara is about one hour from the airport (or Pigeon Point). I was exhausted after a long trip and then from being in the sun when we arrived at the little house on the hill. Maggi and her friend helped me up the steep steps (be prepared) and I knocked out fast in the queen size bed. The place has no real insulation but it's comfortable for the price you pay. Plus, Maggi makes it that much more worth it.
I was a beach bum for my couple of days in Castara and Maggi checked up on me daily and even took me to Englishman's Bay and Charlotteville. I would totally recommend staying here, especially if you are on a budget. It's about 15 mins by foot from the village and very safe. I want to go back! I want to be there now :)

This is a beautiful and romantic location. It is very affordable and the host is very helpful. However, it is very rustic and this is not for those afraid of bugs.

Marguarite and Sherwin are gracious and attentive hosts. The cottage is pleasant and reasonably outfitted. We had a wonderful time staying there for 2 weeks, we would stay there again when returning to Castara. Additionally we ate several meals at their restaurant in town. The food is splendid.
Thanks you Marguarite and Sherwin for a great vacation.

We have stayed 2 winters at the 1 bedroom Little house and enjoyed it greatly.
The cottage was perfect for the two of us and the grounds were wonderful with lots of birds and agouties. Easy walk to the village and Englishmans bay. Maggie is going to plant more fruit trees on the grounds and that will be nice. The only downside is we have to walk to the village for the internet. Hopefully the cottage will have wifi next winter when we get there. Great place.

The house and grounds were beautiful, just as described. Unfortunately, what was not reported was the bar that was next door. They played their music at an extremely loud volume, with enhanced bass, from 7 a.m. to 2:30 a.m.
In addition, there was no mention of having to park your car on the road and walking up a steep hillside. From the photos, it appeared that there was a road going up to the cabins.
As someone coming to the islands to relax, watch birds and enjoy the atmosphere, I was very disappointed in not being able to do so here.
We only stayed one night and left, because we were unable to sleep at all.
