Hidden Cottage - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report

My husband and I honeymooned at Hummingbird Apartment for four days, and by the end of our stay, we wished we could've been there for at least another week. Quiet, serene, and absolutely beautiful, if you love being surrounded by nature. The apartment had everything we needed to make us feel thoroughly at home. Having breakfast with the birds on the front porch was absolutely delightful. On evenings we had tea in the hammock and enjoyed the spectacular sunsets. It rained for most of our stay, so we stayed in, enjoyed the lovely little pool, and the array of birds that came to the overhanging plum tree. For me, personally, it was a much needed break from work and the hassles of life. Time seemed to pass more slowly, and I found a renewed sense of gratitude, calm and joy in the world around me. Castara itself lent to this... great people, and a great atmosphere: peaceful, unhurried, just cool. I cannot say enough how wonderful this was. Can't wait to go back.

What can we add extra to the previous reviews? Hidden cottage was really hidden after a ride up a steep Hill. The cottage had a Nice veranda all around where we Could sit and watch the many birds ( Among them the mot mot) when we placed some fruit and bread crumbs on the hanging platform at the corner of the veranda. Bats were also present but were not a menace to us. Kyle came after day two and cleaned the pool properly, and fixed a broken post leading to the pool. What can we say needs some attention is the shower in the bedroom #1, the door is a bit loose. We had all amenities necessary for a pleasant stay, and it was only a short walk downhill to the beach. Some nights however the neighbours dogs barking was quite annoying. At the beginning of the road to the Castara beach facility was a cute mini Mart selling veggies and who provided all passersby with a suitable bibletext text to ponder upon. The roti at Vera's under the Almond tree was sumptious and at Maguerites the shrimp email was ummmmmm....

Hidden Cottage is a lovely quiet spot with all mod cons including air conditioning, everything works, the bed is very comfy and there's your own private bird-watching terrace which is dry even when it's raining. We had a lovely time.

It is about 5 minutes from the beach or perhaps 10 from Little Bay which is the nicest to swim from. The snorkelling off the beach was good.

We had a good holiday and would recommend the accommodation.

Our third time at Hidden Cottage so I guess we must like it!!

Selvin has done some improvements and sprucing up and so it all looks rather smart. This property has a great refrigerator which works very efficiently and this is a must in a tropical climate. Some holiday places we have stayed at haven't had a very good one.

As usual, the staff, Rhonette, Edith and Kyle were very hard working and attentive. They do a really proper job and Kyle looked after the pool brilliantly.

Thank you everyone again.

We were utterly happy and comfortable staying in the Hummingbird apartment and hanging around friendly, laid-back Castara. The little porch is simply blissful, with lots of birds to watch. Very comfy, supportive bed. We were well taken care of by the folks who look after the place.

We only had a few days to spend and did not plan to cook. (A great choice for us. The local food was lovely.) The kitchen might not support ambitious cooks, but was more than sufficient for our needs.

The hill is steep, but that's how nature put the island together. It's one steep hill after another. I was always happy to make my way up, knowing the hammock was waiting for me when I arrived.

A great spot in an ideal location.
