Condo/Apartment
The Green Room is the first bedroom of 'OurPlace' the 2 bedroomed apartment upstairs. When we are not in residence you have the sole use of the fully equipped kitchen, open plan lounge area & 48' x 10' veranda with an amazing view across Castara bay. Perfect for Al fresco dining, bird watching & sunsets. It offers a chance to relax surrounded by birds, flowers & trees. When we are in residence we would be using the 2nd bedroom ie the Yellow Room the price is then reduced to the same as one of our studio apartments as you would share the communal areas such as the kitchen/lounge & veranda with ourselves.

We built this house for ourselves, friends and family to enjoy and it would have been selfish not to want to be able to share it! For more photos & 132reviews checkout our listing on Tripadvisor A 5 minute walk to 2 safe beaches ( one with lifeguards ) in the small fishing village of Castara NOT a resort by any means it is a working fishing village whose friendly people make visitors welcome. Small bars to 'lime' in, places to eat locally caught fish & other dishes & buy locally grown fruit & vegetables, Small stores sell basic provisions & a few gifts & locally made handicrafts.You can help pull in the seine nets or buy fish from the fishermen every afternoon. Swim & snorkel to coral reefs, walk in the rainforest or up to the local waterfall for a cool dip in the heat of the day. Definitely no Jetskis, banana boats, beach hustlers or hair braiders to spoil your relaxing on the beach though you may have to move ( or join in ) if the children play beach cricket!

About the neighbourhood
Castara is a small friendly working fishing village on the Caribbean side of Tobago & on the edge of the Rain forest. We have 2 sandy beaches, a waterfall, forest walks & several small shops, bars & restaurants all within a short walk. Castara is centrally located so it is easy to take day trips to places such as Englishman's bay, Charlottesville & Speyside. Either drive yourself or hire a car & driver for the day Or take a Boat tour that includes snorkeling, beach BBQ & swim in the famous Nylon Pool-its a great day out & something that we do on a regular bases! Englishman's bay-if you walk is approx 1.10mins away. Go there for lunch at Miss Eula's -do visit - the scenery is breathtaking!
Getting around
Everything in the village is just a short walk away. You can choose to rent a car for all or part of your stay or why not hire a driver & car for a day or half day. That way you can sit back, watch the scenery & get local information on the places that you visit...!
