Guest Report   

Clare Marie Ogier from U.K. visited in April 2017 and awarded  Five out of Five

Loved the house, right on the beach and relaxing outdoor space on the living room/terrace.Porridge the manager unfailingly helpful, as all the locals were.

Everything worked, house was well equipped, and extra net and bedding readily supplied when we needed it.

With no air con, Wifi etc this house might not suit all, but it was for those reasons and it's location which did not require a car to go to the shops, restaurants, beach etc that we particularly chose it and enjoyed the freedom from machines of all kinds!

There are more sophisticated places to stay, but this is perfect if you like sea and sun, friendly villagers, and total relaxation.

Pretty near perfect, for us at any rate. It's not luxurious, but it has everything you need, is virtually on the beach, and is approx 20 meters from a bar. The reef is close to shore, and we saw a turtle whilst out snorkeling, and a huge number of fish. Lots of different birds visited the feeder every day when we put out fruit for them, and fruit bats visited the nectar feeder at night.

This will not suit anyone wanting nightly entertainment, and it's a long way from the airport and 'civilization', but as that was exactly what we wanted it suited us fine.

Our second stay at the Beach House and it was just as fantastic as our first. We stayed in Coconut Heights again and this is a wonderful apartment with stunning views of the sea. Sunsets are a must preferably with a rum punch in your hand!! Could not recommend the property more highly.

Steve Cook from U.S.A. visited in September 2016 and awarded  Three out of Five

This accommodation was a little too rustic for our taste and probably a little over priced for what we got. No AC, lots of mosquitos (even burning the coils), an old wooden building, and a noisy bar next door. We stayed in the middle six's unit downstairs. There was a minimal kitchen. This place is very hard to find and down a steep hill. The town doesn't have much in the way of eating places, maybe because we were out of season! On the positive side, the ocean was just steps away. Oh yea, you have to have a phone to contact the landlord who was nice, but on the other side of town.

We stayed at the Beach House in Castara for 6 nights in April and had a great time! The location and openness of the flat is great. It is private and hidden, tough very central - a paradise with all our nice animal- and human neighbours. We feed the hummingbirds (Kolibri in german) Porridge gave us the recipe: mix one cup of white sugar together with three cups of water, then boil it, let it cool down and ready is the sweet nectar. By the way not only humming birds like it, in the night the bats came and served themselves. It was so interesting to watch them and all the colourful birds. Some people mentioned to bring earplugs, I personally loved the sound of the sea and the birds and the breeze, provides you with beautiful tropical dreams. But if you are sensible as my partner was, than they can be useful. I needed them just once for the Wednesday night party – best is to celebrate that night; just we had to stand up early for a planned dive. Little bay is very personal and great place for snorkelling - along the coast is a lively reef you see turtles, barracudas, big big sting rays, sometimes the visibility was not the best because of waves and wind but most of the days it was good. What I loved so much in Tobago was that most of the animals are free and you share the open space with chicken families, goats, cats, very nice friendly dogs ...(they care for you and become your best friends if you like them, if you are not a dog lover they notice it immediately and leave you alone). As many people mentioned, it is nice to rent a car and drive around – as there are no street signs, you better stop and ask the locals, even if they sometimes seem to look a bit grumpy they are very nice and helpful. Take care of the cows as they love to sleep on the streets; therefore they are called Tobago’s speed bumps. I will come back for sure. Nora
