Little House On The Hill - Reader Reports & Opinion
Greta Waara from Sweden visited in March 2010 and awarded
We stayed at Little House On The Hill for 4 weeks in February-March 2010 and we had a wonderful vacation.
Marguarite and Sherwin were very friendly and took good care of us.
One of the attractions with Little House On The Hill we think is to live surrounded by local people and to follow there everyday life,the people were very friendly to us.
The distans to the beach was not a problem to us insted we think it was very positiv because we really liked our walks up and down 2-3 times a day. It made us feel good and we met a lot of people and got good excercise.
We enjoyed sitting on the big veranda with a wonderful view down the valley, looking at all the colourful birds, cocks, hen and chickens, fruit trees that surrounding the cottage.
The small cottage next door was emty during our visit and did not affect us at all but we like to have our own space so maybe if you have friends living next door it dosnīt matter but otherwise we are not certain we wood like to have somebody else so close.
We really enjoyed our visit and we felt almost at home efter 4 weeks and didnīt want to leave but we hope to return someday and we certanly want to live at Little House On The Hill again.
Thank you Marguarite and Sherwin, we hope to see you again.

We stayed here for 2 weeks with our two young children and loved it. It was absolutely perfect for our needs - spacious, well furnished and well laid out. The children loved playing on the balcony and in the surrounding garden. We enjoyed using the barbecue in the evenings and sitting out to eat on the outside table. It was very peaceful being up here and we really felt part of the village.
Sherwin and Marguarite are great hosts and we would definitely love to stay again.

Kindly let to us at very short notice. Lovely little house but could do with a spruce up. Nice fresh bedding and towels. Lovely view and huge big balcony to watch the wildlife. Nice friendly helpful host.

I liked being a short walk away from the center of town and the beach. It was quiet on the hill and I enjoyed the walk. Maggie let me ride with her to Scarborough one day so that I could visit a nursery school. Both Maggie and Sherwin were very friendly. Sherwin even lent me his watch so that I could get up early and not miss my plane. The next time I return to Castara I hope to stay here.

We stayed at the little house on the hill for 4 nights in december.. margarite, the owner was very helpful and funny as well.. she offered to take us into scarbrough for anything we needed because she goes there a couple of times per week..we occupied the 2 bedroom and were very happy with the place.. it would be a great place for two couples to stay for an extended period of time.. the front porch was very big with lots of seats and a great view.. the place also has a hammock on the side with outdoor furnishings in a nice area with fruit trees and tropical flowers.. birding is fantastic here, we saw roughly 8-10 different birds and the blue crowned mot mots are amazing.. it felt very private here and the owners give you plenty of space.. the only thing i would like different is the walk from town is about 10-15 minutes up hill.. i would definately return to stay at this place again..
