Waking up to this view every day was magical - overlooking the stunning bay that we had mostly to ourselves every day. We loved the visits from the gorgeous birds on the balcony of a morning. The apartment was great, clean had absolutely everything you would need and was exactly as described. Rolling and his wife were fantastic, picked us up and dropped us back at the airport, stopped for groceries and ATM and showed us around the small village. A little slice of heaven. Perfect relaxing holiday.
My partner and I came back to Castara and SeaScape for the second time and once again it was everything we were looking for. Don't go to Castara and SeaScape if you want fancy amenities and 5-star options. You come here for the peace and tranquility (although you may be hearing island music playing at any point during the 24-hour day).
We've had very positive experiences with SeaScape -- the house is lovely, the communication was quick and helpful, and Rolling (the property manager) is as friendly as they come.
We hope to be back again...
Very relaxing location. The place was great and it was just what we were looking for. The open concept was awesome, and many birds joined us for breakfast and/or lunch. Bugs were no problem at all, and we did not even use the bed netting. Great location to swim every morning and to snorkel on the reef just to the east. The little town provided everything we needed within walking distance, including meals and groceries. Although there are restaurants, Mrs. Hazel at the top of the street is the best. She cooks awesome meals out of her home, that you could enjoy back at SeaScape while over-looking the ocean. Doc also is a great cook, and extremely friendly. Also very friendly, and very helpful and nice are Rolling and Lavorne. They made sure we had all that we needed and answered every text very quickly. Lastly, David was awesome. He answered every question we had pre-booking and pre-departure. And, when we had a very minor hick-up, he went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied. If you truly want to stay in the best spot in Castara, then plan to stay at SeaScape.
Beautiful spot; quiet, relaxing and very well appointed cabin. Will definitely stay here again.
Gorgeous view. Quaint restaurant/bar on the beach. We stayed in two room unit which was terrific. Very good value.
The apartment is in amazing position perched over the beach. We saw dolphins in the morning and fireflies at night.
The kitchen is fully stocked and the bathroom is good. WiFi is very good for sending pictures home!
Our only caveat, that isn't clearly shown in the description (which would put me, but not my boyfriend, off returning), is that the house is very much open to the elements. There is a gap between the roofing and the walls. Despite the best efforts of the mosquito net over the bed (which has a few holes in) there are still a lot of bugs around. This is more of a problem in the evening as the light attracts bugs. You either end up sitting in the dark or running the risk of mosquito frenzies (bring a lot₩ of bug spray!!).
Rolling picked us up from the airport and took us to a supermarket. In the end we could have made do with the small shop in the village but that was just because we ate out on most day trips.
We had a wonderful time staying at Seascape. Its very conveniently located for a magical escape- right on a hill overlooking a bay rich with marine life. We would wake up and go snorkelling every morning. All the restaurants in the village were located close by. Very friendly residents. Highly recommend anyone visiting Tobago for peace and quiet.
We arrived in a rental car a little early, off the Trinidad ferry, and it was a little hard to find (the roads along the northern coast are an event in themselves), but locals are all very friendly and helpful. As others have noted, the views are stunning, and the bay below (a few minutes walk) great for swimming and the village great for liming. You need to sleep under mozzie nets (no aircon) but that is no problem, the amenities are fine - a couple of days we bought fish off the fisherman at 16.00 and were cooking by 18.30. The local restaurants seem to operate a rota system so that there is something happening somewhere every night.
