This was our fourth visit to Castara a wonderful fishing village on the Caribbean side of the island of Tobago. Our first time at Baywatch Apartments with Kurt and Ivy Eastman two wonderful hosts staying in their one bed roomed apartment which was like home from home, impeccably clean and spotless. The location at the heart of this village 2 mins walk to the beach, supermarket, local eating places and
beautiful waterfalls a short walk away. Lovely birds daily in the garden and on the feeders yet a peaceful and quiet location. We have made some wonderful friends in the village and now count Kurt and Ivy amongst our Caribbean family. Love Castara and its local culture and safe environment a must place to visit to experience the true Caribbean way of life. Roll on retirement to be able to spend a few months here every year, now that would be perfect or maybe even a month in January 2018!!
What a great location. I usually never return to the same place twice but who can kick at a safe place with cold beer in the bars and the water a few seconds away. Ivy and Kurt run a nice ship. There is a beautiful beach with several life guards on duty for very few people. This is one of the better situated homes for those who like swimming. Everything is new, and very clean. Ivy and Kurt rent out cars, so let them know if you want one before you come...but roads are very twisty!! Try and buy all your food before you arrive as it is very expensive here!! The bank machine often doesnt work so bring enough money!!
I don't usually do review and ratings but this one is worth the time. I took my fiance there for his birthday to get him away from the hustle and bustle of his job. We were to stay for only two days and ended staying an entire week. He was so relaxed that he wanted to extend. Baywatch apartments is quiet, serene and soooooo clean, cleanest guest house I've ever been too. Kurt and his lovely wife are amazing. They really go the extra mile for their guests, beyond hospitable. Everything needed is really close by a 2mins walk to beach with lifeguards, ATM machine, waterfall, shops and places to dine. My favourite was the bonfire dinner on the beach which happens every thursday night. OMG. I love cascara and the island feel that is has. Thank you guys so much for making our stay perfect.
I recommend this place to stay. The owners take care of you in a very good way. The rooms in clean and its a very quit place to stay for a short period. I stay there for 2 weeks. Its best to rent a car that you can travel around. They have a supermarket there but its not so many things to buy. Old women are making homemade bread to times a week in an open owen close to the beach and the bread are very good.
My friends and me stayed for only two days. but all was great. We totally agree with all previous commentators. We love it there. We plan to go back soon. Kurt and Ivy will do all they can to make your stay hassle free.
Thank you so very much Kurt and Ivy.
