SeaScape on Heavenly Bay
Reviewed April 15, 2010

This was our forth visit to Castara and our first time at Seascape. We stayed in both apartments and loved them both. The views from the balconies are absolutely stunning. One could spend the whole day sitting out, watching the wildlife and in particular the birds. We spent hours watching pelicans seagulls and frigate birds swirling around and diving for fish.

The apartment was perfectly designed for relaxed holiday living and was equipped and furnished to a very high standard. Absolutely everything was provided and in excellent condition. The property manager was friendly and helpful and gave us a full briefing when we arrived. He also checked a couple of times to see whether we had any problems.

Castara is a fun place to stay. It's laid back, uncommercialised yet provides all the facilities that are needed to have a great time. There are sufficient shops for daily living but we found it useful to do a big shop before we came to Castara. There are several bars and restaurants but our favourite was Margarites where we ate several times and my wife enjoyed a fantastic lobster there. I tried goat rather tentatively, but it was delicious.

There is plenty to do around the island. We hired a car but beware that navigation is somewhat challenging because of the lack of signposts. Most of the Tobagan drivers are very courteous and considerate.

We are already in the process of booking up for next year.

Had a fab stay, location perfect, the views are amazing, the apartment is perfectly designed & perfect layout. We couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay, it was so nice to fall asleep to the waves & then wake to the birds a few hours later :)
Boathouse is great for top quality fresh food for a good price.

Difficult to add to what others have already said. We stayed in Wavesong for a week. The apartment is beautifully finished and very clean and comfortable. The view from the balcony is to die for and the wildlife amazing.

We found the people and restaurants to be friendly and welcoming and the food of a good standard and good value despite some negative reviews on other internet sites. We would urge you to try them all. We really liked the Boat (just down the hill) particularly on a Wednesday evening with the steel band and African drummers.

Castara is a small, bustling community and visitors should be aware that you should expect some building work, dogs barking, cockerels crowing etc. That said, we would not hesitate to return.

We spent an outstanding week in Castara at the best spot in town - SeaScape. The village itself is delightful - no glitz, just a wonderful beach and simple pleasures. The apartment is beautifully designed with a very comfortable bed, quality linens, great kitchen. The selling point is the view and the private deck with a constant and welcome sea breeze. This is a truly special place that I highly recommend and that we hope we are lucky enough to return to some day.

We stayed at both cottages and loved them both. WaveSong has an amazing balcony with folding doors that open the entire main room. Sunset has a second floor bedroom with an attached balcony. Both offer spectacular views of Heavenly Bay and the sound of the ocean is ever-present.
Everything is spotless and modern. The property manager is extremely helpful. Location is convenient to beach and restaurants, as well as shopping.
This is beyond a doubt the best location in Castara!

We loved every minute in this place. I couldn't recommend it more. Every morning we would wake up and make some coffee and just sit on the balcony with our mouths wide open in awe of the wonderful view.

I honestly can't say enough about our stay at Seascape. It met every expectation we had for a honeymoon destination. We were looking for a travel spot, not a tourist trap. Castara Bay was the perfect choice, and the people at Seascape have designed a cottage that enhances all that Tobago has to offer. The views are amazing and can be enjoyed through wall to wall windows that swing open and bring the outside in. The well appointed kitchen made creating romantic meals a breeze. The view from the master bedroom was absolutely spectacular and was made better by soothing sounds of the ocean crashing on the beach below. We were so sad to have to leave as every thing and everyone made us feel right at home. When we look at our vacation pictures we see a place we can't wait to return to.
