“Paradise found at Oceanview, Castara Roundhouse!”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

We booked Castara Roundhouse for a 10 day vacation and it was absolute heaven! Jenny was very helpful and accommodating! The apartment was spotless, comfortable, beautifully decorated, stunning views, close to beach and had everything we needed! We felt at home and relaxed as soon as we arrived!

Castara is a beautiful little fishing village with some of the most stunning beaches I've ever seen (and we've traveled around!). The people are warm and friendly and you will find plenty of things to do! Or do nothing at all and you will still love it! There are plenty of great places to eat, other surrounding beaches and waterfalls to visit! I highly recommend Oceanview, Castara Roundhouse!!

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 25 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The roundhouse is a wonderful apartment in Castara. It has a great overall vibe, and a large and complete kitchen and bathroom. The deck is perfect for breakfast and dinner. Falling asleep with the doors open, and waking up with the birds chirping at 6AM is wonderful.

The location is perfect. You have a wonderful view over the bay. It's a very short walk down to the beach. The best part is the little shop next door, the owner makes me most delicious breads and more.

I have not seen all places in Castara, but we loved it, and would definitely recommend it to my family and friends.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Jenny Duncan has an immaculate, well appointed accommodation with wonderful views. Her apartment has everything you need to be comfortable. We loved waking to the waves crashing below and the sounds of birds singing. We stayed for 4 nights and our only regret was having to leave. There are fruit stands, a grocery and restaurants within short walking distances. The beaches are sandy and clean. Swimming, snorkeling, collecting shells and just relaxing on the beach kept us happy. We loved it so much we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else!!!

“Beautiful views in the heart of Castara”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed at this apartment with our 2 year old, and he had a great time, just like us. The views over the bay are lovely, and you are a short walk from small beach, where we saw sting rays, turtles and eels.

The apartment had everything we needed, and Jenny was the perfect host. Our son is still asking after her 2 weeks after we left.

I would definitely recommend staying here, I hope to stay there again

“Clean, peaceful and private”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The apartment was lovely! The kitchen was extremely well equipped and we would have had more meals in with better planning. We didn't know what to expect from the area but this was a good location in that it had some privacy away from the restaurants and beach without being too far of a walk.

I would certainly look to stay in this property again if I make it back to Tobago in the future.

The booking itself was a challenge because of how the payments were split in half but due within a week of each other. This was more a reflection of how trip advisor emails themselves were unclear, so I'd recommend the owner either require the full amount up front or space the payments out more.

“Hummingbirds, Agutis and beautiful Sunsets from balcony”
Reviewed 23 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

A place for totaly relaxing. A very confortable accomodation with good domestic appliance. We had wonderful oceanview from balcony and from bedroom. The landlady is very kindly and helfpul. In the Heavenly Bay (1 minutes to walk) we could snorkling and have some drinks. We spend two beautiful relaxing weeks in Oceanview Roundhouse and can recommend it very much. Castara is a nice and sleepy village. Enjoy it :-)
