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.

“Lime in Heavenly Bay”
Reviewed November 17, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

One of the nicest places to stay in Tobago is Castara Bay. Castara is a little fishing village located at a beautiful bay with real Carribean atmosphere. Heavenly Bay is the northern part of Castara bay and the Boatview Appartments offer a picturesque view of they bay and the village.
The apparment was equipped with all necessay kitchen utensils, a large comfortable bed and a huge terrasse right at the beach. Little birds and lizzards came to visit the terrasse in the mornings and loved a little bread snack.
Sharon the owner was very caring and offers a delicious kitchen. The beach is quiet and perfect to lime, suntan and take a swim or go snorkeling. Wednesday night is the time to party, to limbo and dance.

My boyfriend and I just stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. Sharon really goes above and beyond for her guests. She helped advise us on how to get to Tobago from Trinidad and arranged for a taxi driver to meet us at the airport when we arrived. She also helped us get a rental car the following day so we could cruise around the Island!

The apartment was a nice size and the private deck was awesome! Sharon also owns the restaurant (located on the same property) where we enjoyed several delicious meals severed by very friendly staff. We even got to enjoy a live drumming party on Wed night!

I would definitely recommend this place for a stay, short or long! However, bring bug spray as you will get eaten! Also, bring your own beach towels!
