“Must stay here if you want low cost with Priceless view”
Reviewed 1 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This is our third stay and do not even consider other options.
Sharon is really wonderful as the ambassador for the apartments and the the Boathouse restaurant and bar just below you on the beach. Simple but clean studio apartment. Being from the US my wife misses the hot showers, but even in the am the water is warm.
I strongly recommend staying with Sharon in the gem that is Castara.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed 5 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

I've given a 5 star rating on the basis that we had a truly memorable holiday. If you want 5 star luxury and mod cons then you need to look elsewhere. This charming apartment is rustic and basic but delivered 100% on what we were looking for. The verandah area is simply breathtaking and we didn't tire of watching nature at its very best. If you want an "away from it all" break then Castara is for you, The locals make you very welcome and are eager to share some rum with you :-) The beautiful reef and beach (on your doorstep!) was spectacular. Stand out meals at the Boathouse and Shirmas. Wednesday drumming night is not to be missed. We will be returning .....all we ask is a new shower curtain Sharon Shan and Ian

“Spacious with surround sound sea!”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Certainly a room with a view that's worth crossing the Atlantic for! Larger than the pix make it look with an extended and spacious veranda right over the sea - 30 secs away for your pre breakfast swim. A reef extending to the point of the bay with a wide range of corals in good condition populated by a diverse marine life - turtles, large angel fish, shoals in myriad colours and southern rays up to 2m wide - make this amongst the best snorkelling on Tobago! Basic though clean kitchen and shower with cool water only but does what you need. Very comfy king size bed with large net canopy, no bitey things whilst we were there, ceiling fan keeps you cool at night, all doors and windows with nets - keep them open to hear the symphony of sea as you fall easily asleep! Good selection of local style restaurants, run by locals, to eat well at lunch and eve - generous plates mean you need to swim a lot - which here is a joy!

“DELIGHTFUL VIEWS AMONG THE LOCALS”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

This property is located in a spot among the locals with great views. Sharon is an attentive host and very approachable. The property is very basic but very clean. Please note there is no hot water supply in the apartment, not even solar.
The surroundings are not always peaceful and tranquil with the Boat House restaurant just meters away so expect drums on a Wednesday night and maybe an extended party to 1am with loud music. Join in or accept you are in the heart of local life and not in a false resort.
The apartment is located up a short steep hill and some steep steps so not suitable for the infirm. Car rental is very convenient through Taylors auto rentals, whose workshop and office is a few steps away from the property. Avoid the tired out jeeps, ours went wrong three times and if it wasn't for the base being next door would have been very inconvenient. They do have newer cars and we discovered you don't need a 4x4 on Tobago roads. A very nice stay in a laid back place, eating out is interesting with all places serving the same menu and some with very basic hosting skills. Not all restaurants open every night so If staying in Castara you will need a car.
The beach is very small and high tides leave very little space to sit, the sea can be quite rough with under currents and not recommended for children swimming alone. This is really an adults only area.
