This is the report I sent to Alice Farling, owner.
The canine squatters were a bit of a problem. Ma, Pa and two offspring. I think they could put some non dog lovers off as the mother in particular was determined to gain access to Bamboo via the main door which was broken at the base. I alerted Porage who devised a temporary barricade (with a small piece of bamboo). It lasted 5 minutes. I decided to devise my own invention which worked, however It meant that I had to dismantle it each time I wanted out. Not handy. Even then, the female dog was constantly seeking attention, jumping up and growling when the 2 offspring continually wanted to nurse.
I am fairly low maintenance (having slept in mountain bothies) so I tend to have the attitude of make do or mend.
I felt the facilities were good however visitors should be alerted to the lack of provisions at the local stores i.e. no bananas or fresh milk. I certainly feel grateful for the plethora of goods which we take for granted at our supermarkets. I have advised her to add in another webpage ie FAQs which alert visitors to the potholes, gradient of the roads, insect life etc.
During the Xmas week in which I stayed it was blissfully quiet with me as the only resident. Bamboo has a lived in feel, and perhaps some visitors would appreciate some attention to the decoration i.e. the shower is a little tired. Access to a washing machine may be beneficial for some.
No major issues and good experiences of Tobago.

My wife and I went to Paradise Point Villa for our honeymoon earlier this month. We stayed in the Bamboo Apartment which was well equipped with every appliance and convenience to make our stay comfortable.
The Manager, Porridge was very warm and friendly and even purchased fresh fish for us in Castara. Our stay was great.
The biggest disappointment for us was that all the trails leading to the pool and waterfall were totally overgrown with bush and was virtually impassable. This was so disappointing since that was the main attraction that attracted us to the villa. We booked this place long in advance and arrangements were not even made to have the trails cleared. Alice this was really disappointing. It was very generous of the owner though to give us a free, extra night at the villa.
I really dont mind spending another vacation at the villa but this time the trails leading to the pool and waterfall must be cleared!

Some friends and I shared the Hanging Garden Villa (both floors) and really enjoyed our stay. The Villa was beautiful and clean, with the most amazing views of the ocean. We had everything we needed right there, but Castara was only a short drive down the mountain if we were in the mood for a little nightlife. The nearby beaches were also gorgeous and a good place for snorkling. I would highly recommend this place, and plan to return in the future.

Paradise Point Villa is beautiful! I have stayed a few times and love it. Everyone who works there (Gemma, Ital and Porridge) definitely makes you feel at home and welcome. The villa is beautiful and has all the conveniences of home. There are lots of places to relax and have peace and quiet. The Great Deck is the perfect spot for everyone to gather. The views of Castara are breathtaking! There are full kitchens so you can always stay close to home and cook and relax, or the village of Castara is just a short distance away.

We loved our stay at Paradise Point Villa. Such a peaceful place with awesome views of Castara. Accomodations were lovely and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed our hike down to Mystic Falls. We had the pleasure of meeting Alice ... so warm and genuine. We fell in love with Tobago while staying in Castara. Would definitely recommend staying here and the price is very reasonable. All points made by MyTobago was right on the mark ... thank you for all your valuable info. Looking forward to returning. Stay as long as you can!!!!!!
