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. ($150-125 USD p/n.) 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!

Very nice apartment with balcony in the middle of the village. It located up a hill so the view is amazing! The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is nicely equip for making breakfast and other meals if you dont feel like eating out.
The village of Castara is a gem, no place like it! There is tourist around but not to many. The beach is one of the best of the island and there is still local life here.
You get greeted by all kinds of beautiful tropical birds on the Balcony, even lots of Hummingbirds and if you are here in mango season they will almost fall right in front of your feet, its paradise!!

My family had the pleasure of spending a week at Carpe Diem in April, 2017. Castara Bay has two beaches within a five minute walk, each with a “boathouse”, serving food, soft drinks and beer, with a third beach, Englishman’s Bay, a couple miles up the road. The village has a nice selection of restaurants and the people are very friendly and helpful.
The guest house is designed to allow an open living area facing the bay, fronted by a large deck with an excellent view of the bay and several birdfeeders attracting a large variety of birds with colorful plumage, and a perfect place to put your feet up, and read a good book with the sounds of the ocean and the jungle in the background. Owners Yvonne and Chris were wonderful hosts, guiding us to the best spots in the village for food and entertainment – not to be missed are the drum ensemble, and the steel drum performances at a number of venues.
It was a great week at a very attractive place.
