Please note 5x night minimum stay. Taken on a Self Catering bases only. Check us out on social media to read more reviews. We are traditionally built and completed in 2007 & are located just a short walk off the Northside Road in the friendly fishing village of Castara on the Caribbean side of Tobago which is a perfect place to work remotely or relax . The two STUDIOS are block built, they are light & airy with high ceilings & have a fully tiled 'wet-room' styled bathroom with shower, hand basin & WC plus hot & cold water. We have fitted filters on the cold water supply in the kitchens so no need to buy bottled water unless you particularly wish to! They are the mirror image of each other & have good cooking facilities with a 'proper Saffire' stove & grill ( not a hot plate !!), large fridge/freezer ( large enough for lots of Carib!) crockery & cooking utensils for 4 & all you will need including a liquidiser for all the fruit from the garden -in season Each studio has a queen size red cedar bed with mosquito nets & sleep 2 people comfortably. We can provide an extra single bed or child's cot if requested. We provide free standing fans + a ceiling fan, although the high ceilings keep all the rooms cool. All doors/windows are made of local cedar & are louvered. No need for AC here! Outside a large balcony has drop down blinds for shade & with table & chairs so that you can eat Al fresco . Perfect for bird watching & sunsets! There is separate access to each studio. There is also a shared BBQ area and pizza/bread oven-check first as sometimes the hens lay their eggs in there!. Free Wi-fi is available to use if you need to work remotely BUT check with your partner to see if he/she will let you spend time on the internet while you are on holiday!! Both of the 2 Sandy Beaches are just a short stroll away ( 200 yards ) where you can fish swim, snorkel with the Stingrays, fish or pull the Seine! We built the house for us and our family and friends to enjoy. The word spread about how good it was so we ended up letting it out to like minded people. You can do as much or as little as you want here. The main thing is to relax and recharge your batteries. That is why we call it the 'Great Escape'. A Bird Watchers paradise. Great local food, fresh fish every day. In the evening visit the bars and 'lime' with the locals. Visit the small local restaurants to taste the local cuisine or cook up the fish you caught (maybe) on the house BBQ then relax and dream about the one that got away!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

The studio was confortable, well equiped and maintained, it boasts a lush tropical environment and a superb view, as can be seen from the pictures, But what struck me most was the hospitality and the mindset of the owners who care a lot about the Castaran community and do a lot to make you understand and love it. That makes it very easy to find one's way around, to speak with people and to feel part of things if only for a few days or week. That was a great experience.

It was a pleasure to stay with Yvonne and Chris. Their place is absolutely beautiful with stunning sea views and a marvelous array of beautiful birds who hang out at the property most of the day. My room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean upon arrival and my hosts made me feel at home from the moment I arrived.

Great guests who it was great to hang out with! They really loved the birds especially 'Toyah' the ant Shrike who befriended them ( and their bacon!) As always seems to happen, guests very quickly become friends.......! You are welcome back anytime, OK ?
