Amazing Tree house Escape

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a family holiday in Castara, Tobago where we had the most fantastic time. We were a large group of six adults and five children, so took all three apartments (Saffron, Cinnamon & Tamarind).

What a good decision! We loved the house with its quirky and individual feel, as well as the fact that we could either have privacy in our bright and airy apartment, or come together on the spacious patio of Tamarind at the end of each day. The kids especially loved being in the Cinnamon Apartment which they said felt like a tree-house. For us adults sleeping under mosquito nets felt really cosy and romantic.

Castara Cottage is close to both beaches, and we spent a lot of time on Little Bay, swimming, snorkelling, sunbathing and simply enjoying being in such beautiful and peaceful surroundings. We did manage to tear ourselves away from the beach to go on a boat trip to No Man's Land and the Nylon Pool, and to go on a tour around the island, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend.

All 3 apartments were spacious and well equipped for home cooking. They were clean and everything was in good order. Staying at Castara Cottage made us feel so close to nature - the big open windows where a multitude of brightly coloured birds would fly in and out from dawn until dusk. The tropical trees were awash with ripe mango & breadfruit......what a sight!

We had good, positive communication with the owners and the manager/housekeeper was helpful, full of information and very friendly.

The people of Castara are very helpful and friendly, and we enjoyed eating and drinking at the local restaurants and bars. We are already making our plans to visit again. Can’t wait!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sherrie - it was a pleasure to have you stay at Castara Cottage. Looks like you enjoyed the wonders of Castara and I know the kids were particularly fascinated with the "Tree House" (Cinnamon Apartment) - along with the amazing, colourful birds, who came to say 'hello' every morning. I hope you caught sight of the Agouti family in the bush across the road. Many thanks for leaving the place clean and tidy - a true gift for our housekeeper ! Please come again.......and pass the word.
