Carpe Diem - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report

Absolutely amazing. Carpe Diem was perfect for exploring the rest of the island. just a short drive from Englishmans Bay where we spent most mornings alone on the beach. The views from our apartment were so pretty that no matter how bad my cooking, the evenings were still wonderfully romantic. Sipping Caribs and rum, watching the sunset before the fruitbats came out to play (hang a banana from the balcony and watch them swoop in to attak it... I would throughly recommend this place to anyone.

A wonderful place to stay - the place has been lovingly built and well equipped. Everything works well, including the shower! The view from the villa is beautiful - you can lie in bed and watch the breakers on the beach. Glorious sunsets from the verandah - if you prefer the freedom of self-catering, we'd hoghly recommend this villa.

We stayed one week at the beautiful Villa Carpe Diem. Owner Christopher Runciman was extremely helpful before our arrival helping us to plan our trip. He arranged airport pickup by his friend Troy, who also lives on the property and manages the guest house. he also gave us lots of ideas for day trips and some basic suggestions about the town.

Carpe Diem has the most spectacular views in Castara. We had friends staying at other Villas, including the very fancy Castara Retreats (?), and Carpe Diem was really one of the best. We were looking for a place with a kitchen so we could cook for ourselves for the week. Troy took us grocery shopping on our way from the airport and then we were able to get amazing fresh fish every day from the fisherman on the beach, and also fresh local produce. We stayed upstairs had use of the big kitchen and full upper deck. I strongly recommend reserving this bigger space if you can afford it, although the small places downstairs are also very nice. The place was clean and comfortable, showers were nice, and the kitchen is fully outfitted.

We had a such a perfect trip to Castara. And staying at Carpe Diem really helped facilitate that.

Dear all,

we stayed 3 weeks with our little baby in the studios at Villa Carpe Diem in Castara. It truely was the best and most relaxing vacation we ever had. The studios are extremely good value, very romantic and offers amazing view of Castara bay. We can only recommend it to everyone who wants a quiet vacation with a perfect scenery. Chilling at the balcony, beautiful birds and green plants all over the place.

Just perfect!!

We had a lovely time at Carpe Diem, and the views from the balcony (and even from the bed, in fact!) were as lovely as owner Chris promised. The walk to the beach is short, the locals were really friendly, and the peaceful, non-touristy ambiance of Castara was perfect for us. The apartment was well equipped. Although the gas stove leaked a little which gave the chief chef a headache, we have no serious complaints whatsoever. We would recommend this property for couples looking for mellow quality time and lovely sea views.
