Not the plush 5star accomodation but it does everything it says on the tin (website). If you are looking for good value and contact with the locals then this is the place. Car hire, trips and restaurant on the doorstep. A bit of a trek uphill to get to main Castara but otherwise ok.

A very nice place to stay. They only have double beds, but unfortunately, so does almost every other place (it s king size, so it s ok for people sharing). It s clean and well equipped, the owners are kind and attentive, the balcony gives a great chance to enjoy the view, observe the bay, the birds in the trees...

The other reviews have pretty much said it all......I can't think of any more superlatives that have not already been used! And rightly - and deservedly - so. Right from the very first email contact with Stephanie, a whole year before the dates of our trip, I knew we would not be disappointed. I could tell immediately from, not only...

The glowing accounts of the accommodation that previous advisers report are completely accurate. Stephanie and Brian - 'Alibaba' - run a very professional show together with warmth and energy. The apartments are simple, clean, beautifully located and thoughtfully laid out. Alibaba is passionate and knowledgeable about the island he was born and raised on and is working hard with the...

My girlfriend and I revisited Castara this past March/April for a little relaxation. This year we stayed at Sea Breeze with Brian and Stephanie, WOW is all I can say ! Right from the start of our trip, with the airport pickup to the stop at the penny saver for a grocery order to the ride to Castara. The room...

We stayed at Ailbaba's. Sea Breeze Appartments from February 1st to February 15th this year. This is our third or fourth stay and once again we hugely enjoyed it. The position of the appartments overlooking the beautiful bay is amazing. The appartments themselves are excellent. They are kept scrupuiouslsy clean, are very well equipped and the beds are very comfortable....

We stayed in the Stingray unit and I'm sure we had the best one. This is the outer corner so an unobstructed view looking to Heavenly Bay & Big Bay to the left. Every morning we had coffee on the balcony and fed the birds on the railing. The Motmot birds are just beautiful, and the Bananaquit (sugar) birds loved...

Snorkeling right off the beach is a wonderful way to enjoy the day in Castara. We stayed in the stingray room and were quite happy with our room and the overall stay. We had stayed in the room next to stingray (turtle?) 2 years before in January. The only notable difference is that the stingray deck gets a significant amount...

These apartments have the most perfect position in Castara. Secluded and not overlooked with uninterrupted views across the bay. A few steps from the beech and the Boat House Restaurant they couldn't have been more convenient. Simple, clean and comfortable - the only thing I would have changed were the chairs on the balcony. Wicker Armchairs with cushions. Absolutely fine...

Sea Breeze is a truly unique experience. I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to stay in Castara's premier nature accommodation. Booking was effortless as was communication with Stephanie & Ali. During my, all too brief stay, I enjoyed the super clean Trumpet Tree unit. A sort of private tree house set above the other rooms and owner's...
