Very serviceable accommodation enabling immersion into the village life. Lovely view, friendly and helpful owners. Beaches are exceptionally clean. Shops and restaurants within strolling distance. Plenty of interesting bird life. Island dogs have rather a rather poor time of it and can be very noisy at night and hard to overlook if you are a dog lover. Enthusiastic and skilled... More

Our second stay at Carpe Diem continued to delight. You’ve seen other excellent reviews about the place, so this is in addition to that information. You will easily guess, that we are interested in the birdlife. Our most welcome visitors to our balcony included close up views of mot-mots, a cocoa creeper, rufous breasted wren, blue-black grassquits, tanagers: blue-grey, white... More

One of the pleasures of having Carpe Diem Villa as our home in Tobago from home is being able to meet so many like minded people! The worst part of the "job" is having to say goodbye..............................! More

My partner and I stayed at Carpe Diem at the beginning of February for our first few nights in Tobago, and were sad we didn't stay longer! We very much appreciated the beautiful space--with a fantastic view and fully equipped kitchen, we were more than comfortable at Carpe Diem. Watching the beautiful birds on the patio, and having a drink... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks in January and really enjoyed it. The accommodation was as described, very clean, with everything you need and a fantastic view over the beautiful bay of Castara. The village is small, friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. We snorkelled every day and found Little Bay to be as good as anywhere else on... More

Just back from 10 days here. The location is good and away from the beach so tends to quieter than in the main village. It is up hill and everything you want to do is down hill so be prepared for some walking but that is Castara and most apartments are either at the top or bottom of a hill.... More

Me and my wife stayed here 4 nights during our recent trip to Tobago. We stayed at a few different places around the island and must say this was one of the best places to stay if you want to do as little as possible. The house it self lays beautiful on the side of the hill overlooking Castara bay... More

We stayed at Carpe Diem in Castara for 3 nights, and in retrospect wish it had been for longer. Castara was my favourite place we visited in Tobago, and likewise Carpe Diem my favourite place we stayed. Remote, beautiful, secluded, friendly, dreamy, i could go on and on. The apartment is situated a little way up a mountain on the... More

This a very quick review to say that last month I returned to the beautiful Caribbean paradise that is Castara, and the wonderful Carpe Diem Villa. It was my third trip to the same place and the same villa and I'm pretty sure that it's somewhere I will keep going back to for the rest of my life. The beauty,... More
