Property Description

Provided by the property, or taken from their website

Castara Cottage is an open, natural style Caribbean house situated in Castara, Tobago. The split-level house offers flexible and comfortable, accommodation in three private apartments which can sleep up to 11 people - including children. The house is just one minutes walk from two beaches and is surrounded by rain forest covered hills. The apartments offer spacious, light, airy, comfortable accommodation for individuals, groups and families. Each apartment is completely self - contained, with its own well-equipped kitchen - including large fridge-freezer, full-size cooker, private patio, and lounge area. For your added safety, each apartment is fitted with an electronic alarm system.

If you are looking for a holiday where you can relax and enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of exotic surroundings, sip your coffee or cocktail, swing on a hammock; watch the birds fluttering around the patio and trees; enjoy cool breezes whilst listening to the sound of the waves breaking on the nearby beaches; soak up the local culture and ambience; sunbathe, fish, snorkel........Castara Cottage is the place for you.

Castara is a dreamy little fishing village on the Caribbean coast of Tobago. It's the perfect place to forget about your demanding life and just relax with the sun and sea. Castara has two beautiful bays - Big Bay and Little Bay (also known as Heavenly Bay). The Big Bay has lifeguards on duty every day of the week. The water at Little Bay is shallower and perfect for supervised children. The unspoiled reef in Little Bay is great for snorkelling. At the other side of the village, there is a charming waterfall, reached by walking along the river-bed.

Tobago is a quiet tropical Caribbean paradise, where the sun caresses you and the green hills tumble to turquoise seas. Travellers come to Tobago to get away from it all and to relish the warm Caribbean climate and sea. Thought to be Daniel Defoe's inspiration for his famous novel Robinson Crusoe, Tobago delights visitors with unspoiled beaches, roaring waterfalls, ancient rain forest full of chattering birds and some of the best diving in the world.

Please note that while Castara is generally very quiet and tranquil, the Cottage is not remote or isolated, but situated on the edge of the village near the small roads that serve the area. Noise from the occasional passing heavy vehicle may be audible, particularly when staying in the Saffron apartment.

Tasty, specially prepared home-cooked meals can be provides at an extra charge - please ask for details.

Carys from U.K. visited in February 2019 and awarded   

We had a great stay in Cinnamon apartment. The owners were incredibly helpful throughout the booking process and with travel logistics, answering our endless questions, and they gave us a very good idea of what to expect. The place was spotless, and Carolyn and Jade very welcoming and supportive. It is a traditional wooden building, quirky and thoughtfully decorated in keeping with its local character. Like much of the accommodation in Castara there is no air-conditioning so the only cooling is by catching the breeze through open shutters etc, plus a fan in the bedroom. It was spacious for the two of us and very well equipped – everything worked well including the shower, cooker, fridge/freezer, wifi. Plenty of wildlife around and lots going on outside as the community goes about its daily life. Not peaceful exactly, but it somehow managed to be very relaxing despite the hens, cockerels, goats, dogs, car horns and the church service on Sunday morning! It is in a brilliant location, handy for both of Castara’s two beaches and all the eateries.

Excellent for Larger groups, couples and singles.

I've just been staying at Castara Cottage for the 6'th time, and it's about time I write a review for this wonderful accommodation. In the past I've traveled with friends and family in large groups, Castara Cottage is perfect for this, because there is 3 beautiful apartments, the upper ones connected if necessary.

This time traveling on my own, in between jobs, in need of peace and quietness, lovely surroundings, beautiful view, 30 seconds from 2 beaches.

Being on my own, without a car, I sometimes needed a little extra help, and the landlady, Carolyn and her daughter Jade, made my stay very special. They did everything to help. if I needed rocket salad, they suggested the right shop, organic tomatoes, well it was at my doorstep the morning after. Herbs, would be brought from there own garden.

There is a reason why we keep coming back to this beautiful accommodation, but this stay was special.

When you travel in large groups, you often dont meet new people. This time I had other tourists over for dinner, and everybody made comments about the nice atmosphere Castara Cottage has.

I thank Carolyn , Jade, and not least the owners Ann and Yvonne for a ( or 6) wonderful holidays!
