Beach House - Reader Reports & Opinion

The Beach House, Castara   

Jo Mills

There is one huge downside to Tobago - leaving!

What a wonderful, special, beautiful island - and the same can be said for the people. We stayed in Coconut Heights at the Beach House in Castara for our honeymoon. It was already dark when we arrived, so we drank our complimentary chilled champagne on the huge balcony, able to hear the waves crashing on the beach but see nothing of the view. It was wonderful waking up at 5am to see the Caribbean Sea directly in front of you through the mosquito nets! An experience we will never forget.

Porridge and Jeannel look after both the apartment and you during your stay and they couldn't be more friendly and helpful. All the local people are wonderful - we were even invited along to the school sport's day!

Marvin of Nature Boys Tours took us out on his boat for the most amazing 1 week anniversary trip. After snorkelling in Englishman's Bay, he then took us to No Man's Land where he filleted and barbecued superbly the tuna my husband caught along the way! Marvin produced an abundance of beautiful local food, beer, rum punch and even a lace table cloth for lunch before taking us out for a dip and a rum punch in the Nylon Pool.

We cannot recommend Tobago and especially Castara highly enough. Whilst I am sure the big resorts are lovely, there is no better way to go than to experience the local life in a small fishing village. What can beat watching Brenton arrive in on his boat in the morning and shout up to us that he had lobster for lunch that day if we would like some!

We cannot wait to go back and very much look forward to seeing all our new friends again.

Hello

I'm currently planning a trip to Tobago next year (sometime between September - December 2007 - any suggestions on best months to visit?) and really like the look of The Beach House, Castara. How does this compare to Alibaba's Sea Breeze in similar location? Any suggestions?

Also any comments on sercurity at either accommodations?

Thanks

Lorraine :D

This was our second time in Castara and our 5th on Tobago, this time with 3 good friends. They still are.

The Beach house is our favourite and we all had our own sanctuary. The house is located perfectly right on the beach. We could fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up with bird song sending the fishermen to their work. We snorkeled among the corals, sting rays, turtles and rainbow colored fishes...

Mr. Porridge, our omnipotent fixer of everything; a djungle trip with the bird specialist Newton George, a beach safari with his son Jackhill, and all kinds of assistance by Jeannel, his ever helpful

wife.

We all found our professional angles too, Ms Sirpa got a set of lovely promotional pictures of her artisan objects, Mrs Ulla paints her next art exhibition on motives above and under the water, and Mr Tapani sketched and painted a years supply of aquarells.

Looking forward for the next time in Castara Beach House.
