OUR PLACE: 2-Bedroomed apartment upstairs. Sleeps 4 max.
This can also be let as a one-bedroom apartment called the GREEN ROOM - Sleeps 2. When we are in residence you would share the communal areas with ourselves and this would be reflected in the price. Please inquiry for availability.
"Our Place" upstairs is all timber construction. It has 2x bedrooms both with large ensuite bathrooms, opening out onto the 48ft x 10ft veranda with a very large lounge/kitchen/living room in between. The view across Castara bay from the verandas is, we think, the best in the village. Perfect for Alfresco dining, bird watching & sunsets or writing that book that you've been thinking about!
The kitchen is well equipped with crockery & cutlery for 6. All the rooms have high ceilings and stay pretty cool even on the hottest day. There are free standing fans in each room & blinds along the veranda.
There is a BBQ to cook that fish you caught or bought today day - delicious with a squeeze of lime!! The garden is planted up to attract birds. We have a variety of fruit trees, mango, banana, guava, paw paw etc. Also the flowering plants and herbs are now well established and adding to our and your enjoyment.
Panday, our gardener & friend will be happy to give you whatever fruit is in season!

Staying at Carpe Diem was a delight. Beautiful views, birdwatching from the balcony, close to both beaches but not too near. Carolyn, Panday, Chris and Yvonne all very friendly, helpful and kind people. Well-equipped kitchenette in the room. Comfortable bed with mosquito net.
Only slight downside was the barking dogs, but I think they could be heard all over Castara. Take earplugs!

Really great people! The reason for building the house was to enjoy it. Now we are able to share it with guests like these guys so it is even better!
