I was traveling for business in Trinidad in October of 2017, and spent a few days in Seascape. I traveled by myself and I felt totally safe. I loved Castara. It is a charming fishing village and the people were amazing. The views from the beach house were unimaginable. Would love to revisit with my family sometime.
We enjoyed seven nights in the Wavesong. The View of heavenly Bay will take your breath away. The accommodations are wonderful. Great location and easy walking distance to restaurants. We had some concerns about no air conditioning but the breeze and the fans made this a non-issue. Great WiFi, great fridge and freezer so lots of ice for a nice tall cold drink while you sit on the deck enjoying the sun sets.
I'm currently back in Castara, Tobago - another visit to add to my long list. There is something magical about this place, as I keep coming back to catch up with friends whom I met years ago. My last trip was in June 2015 when I stayed at Seascape - a treat for me, as I tend to go for the "cheap, cheerful, but clean" places.
This was a great choice for a special occasion - and it was !
There isn't one thing about this place that I can complain about. It was lovely !
Seascape is clean & well maintained, with stunning views over Little Bay
Must say, I should have posted these words a long time ago - but only felt the need to review, after I read a recent adverse report which did not reflect my experience.
Seascape is really special !
My husband and I needed a romantic getaway. Normally when we go to Tobago we stay in Storebay, however this time we opted for something further north on the island, and I don't regret it. We stayed in the two bedroom cabin and our room opened up to ocean, not a window just an uninterrupted view of the most beautiful view i have ever seen of Tobago. The cabin had a full kitchen, a nice dining area and sitting area. We were walking distance from the beach, and a car rental spot if we needed one. There were restaurants and bars around, but we decided to pick up groceries on the way to cook. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful, serene, relaxing, and romantic get away.
I hate going to a concrete house/hotel when I am on a beach vacation. I loved the wooden cabin with fold away windows and doors that gave you the allure of privacy and being fully in the moment with your surroundings.

This is a lovely spot to spend some relaxing down time right on the water in Castara, a pretty little fishing village on Heavenly Bay in Tobago. The photos on the site do the place justice - the views from both of the rooms are perfect, and the accomodations are more than adequate - not palatial but completely functional. There's no need for a car if your objective is simply beach time, but if you intend to tour around the island a rental would be desirable. Aside from that, decent food is readily available within a 5-10 minute walk, and the beach is virtually at your doorstep. The only downside is the 54 steps needed to reach the cottage - not a problem at all, but it would be quite difficult for anyone whose walking is compromised.
This was my second trip to Castara, but the first stay at Sea Scape (the 2 bedroom apt.). The manager, Rolling, was very accommodating and knowledgeable. The view of Castara Bay from the dining area was amazing. We could see the manta rays in the water and watch the fishermen bring in their catch for the day. The only disappointment was the tiny deck on the upper floor. We secretly coveted the deck that the one bedroom apartment next door got to enjoy. While the louvered windows on our main floor fully opened and birds flew in and out to eat our provisions, it was not the same as sitting outside and drinking beer and rum and snacking on chips. Having 2 showers was a giant plus!! No polite waiting for someone to wash off the sand first. This trip, we rented a car and drove around the island (a bit nerve-wracking on tight turns on narrow roads on the "wrong" side of the road), but we all agreed that Castara is THE PLACE to stay while on Tobago.
