From the minute we landed to the day we left, Joan and Fenbar were amazing hosts! They even took us for a little tour of the island which we loved.
The cottage is a very cute 2 bedroom nestled on the hillside amongst the locals (super friendly!). We really felt we were experiencing the "true Tobago". We sat and bird watched every morning. Our maid Annetta is a wonderful lady. Always so accommodating and a very thorough housekeeper.
If you don't mind walking up and down a bit of hill to get to town and beach, then this is the place for you!

Our stay at Castara Bay Eco-Villa was great! It was a pleasant experience from the start of planning the stay at this beautiful home. Tamara responded to emails quickly and communication throughout our trip was pleasant, and arrangements for pick-up and return to the port made it worry-free. Kris, our liaison, was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, personable, and determined. He stopped at the grocery store so we could buy food before arriving in Castara. He worked hard to find us a rental car. In addition to the wonderful people, the house and grounds were beautiful. Annetta, the caretaker, was also quick to respond to questions and concerns. We would stay at this property again.
