Interaction with guests
Upon arrival you will be met by ourselves or our housekeeper Rachael who lives nearby. We will hand over the keys, give you the wi-fi code & answer any Qs that you might have.
We enjoy meeting our guests-sharing a beer or two & like to make everyone feel at home.
When we have fresh fish we often invite guests to join us for an evening meal around sunset-Its a good way to meet people & to make new friends & watch the sun go down!
We are also very active directors of the Castara Tourism Development Association which does a lot for the improvement of the infrastructure & development of the village as a very eco friendly destination for visitors & villagers alike.

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...!

Car not needed
