“DELIGHTFUL VIEWS AMONG THE LOCALS”

This property is located in a spot among the locals with great views. Sharon is an attentive host and very approachable. The property is very basic but very clean. Please note there is no hot water supply in the apartment, not even solar.
The surroundings are not always peaceful and tranquil with the Boat House restaurant just meters away so expect drums on a Wednesday night and maybe an extended party to 1am with loud music. Join in or accept you are in the heart of local life and not in a false resort.
The apartment is located up a short steep hill and some steep steps so not suitable for the infirm. Car rental is very convenient through Taylors auto rentals, whose workshop and office is a few steps away from the property. Avoid the tired out jeeps, ours went wrong three times and if it wasn't for the base being next door would have been very inconvenient. They do have newer cars and we discovered you don't need a 4x4 on Tobago roads. A very nice stay in a laid back place, eating out is interesting with all places serving the same menu and some with very basic hosting skills. Not all restaurants open every night so If staying in Castara you will need a car.
The beach is very small and high tides leave very little space to sit, the sea can be quite rough with under currents and not recommended for children swimming alone. This is really an adults only area.

“Rustic and Relaxing”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The Boat view Apartments have a beautiful vista of Little Bay, where the water is stunning and crystal clear. I had a nice, relaxing stay in the Purple Room. I'd say that if you are a real "Type A" traveler, this spot might not be for you since the cleanliness of the room perhaps left something to be desired. But I really did not mind since the vibe is relaxing, Sharon is super duper helpful and the food at the Boat House is out of this world. If you want to go somewhere and really disconnect, kick back and enjoy some incredible snorkelling and beach time... this is a great option!

First time in Tobago. This is where I will go when I return. Sharon and her staff are so in tune with the guests that they host. From the morning wake ups from the ocean waves, to the walk to get your favorite cup of coffee, passing the local markets selling their wares, you have no problems embracing this local piece of paradise in the south. Your balcony is your lookout for all that is going on here. From the fishing boats to the tour excursions leaving the beach, you are in the best seat in the cove. Watching the fishermen return with their catch, the local men with their nets set from the shore. Everyone is a part of the catch. The birds and lizards and juvenile iguanas really enjoy the fruits left on the rail of the deck. They are all very happy to share in the benefits of extras.
Sharon and staff, Thank you for a very beautiful stay. Your hospitality will not be soon forgotten.

“Fantastic bay view in very quiet location, away from the crowds.”

The Boat House has a fantastic view of Castara Bay, Tobago. Its about an hour from the airport and you get wonderful wildlife around you all the time, as well as very friendly cats, dogs and chickens. Colourful lizards great you every morning on the balcony along with the bananachit bird, its tiny but has a huge voice. Had large rays swim around me in 3 foot of water. Sharon, the owner is very friendly and thoughtful, she also owns/runs the beachfront restaurant just below the rooms. The bed has netting to help reduce the mosquito's, but they will get you. Basic kitchen facilities but serviceable. Take plenty of cash as no one takes cards around here. We enjoyed our time at this place, its got the best views of the bay.

“The Caribbean at it's best!”

Situated in one of the most beautiful villages on the island this accomodation offers everything you need for the true Tobagonian experience: Modest yet cosy rooms, fully equipped kitchen, big sunny balcony with stunning view over Castara beach which is only a 1 minute walk away. Sharon, who owns the place is a real sweetheart - she takes care and makes you feel really comfortable. Also she runs a very nice restaurant at the beach, providing cool beverages and authentic Caribbean food.

I stayed here several times now, I always loved it. Please be aware, that your luxury will not consist of marble tiles here, but of the the gentle sound of the breaking waves, some motmots posing on your balcony and the feeling that the world might be alright after all. At least at this place.
