The Blue Mango Cottages nestled between Castara's Big and Little Bays are unlike anything you've experienced before .... gloriously eclectic and extraordinary, combining the natural experiences of a tropical rainforest with a Caribbean beach in one go.
Each of the 3 apartments has at least one balcony overlooking the sea from which to read, to watch the end of the day, to see the stars, the setting moon, the misty mornings, the fishing boats, the soaring birds, the fireflies, the sweeping rain and the double rainbows.
With names that conjure up an image - Sweet Point and Sea Steps - these delightful apartments, located along the edge of a cliff, capture wonderful views of the Caribbean with its sunsets and moonlit nights - be it from a balcony or bed. Sea Steps even has its own access directly onto it 'own' little beach.
The apartments are surrounded by many exotic species of bird life and fireflies and trees. There's no TV or air conditioning - just fans, while the Queensized four poster beds have mosquito canopies. There's hot and cold water and all bed and bath linen is supplied, plus daily housekeeping service. Each apartment has a well equipped kitchen and hammocks are provided. The apartments are also child proofed.

We stayed at Sweet Point cottage and I must say that the views were breathtaking. From the morning sun to the romantic sunset. Views of both Castara Big bay and Heavenly bay.
The host was very accomodating and a safe atmosphere was provided. I would definitely revisit this place!

Humble wooden cottages built among the trees on top of hill overlooking castara bay.
Fantastic views / sunsets with easy access to beautiful beach that also has excellent snorkeling.
Swam with hawksbill turtles, rays, cuttlefish in crystal waters. Saw more birds than at Asa Wright just sitting in the room veranda !!
Castara waterfall nearby is wonderful forest walk in the morning..
Room is complete with refrigerator, small stove. Bathrooms worked fine... no problems with water or elec.
No air conditioning or TV which is GREAT for those seeking a more 'eco' experience. WiFi works well. Mosquito net over bed. Had the best sleep there.
