The cottage is just one minutes walk from two beautiful, unspoilt and peaceful beaches and is surrounded by rainforest covered hills. The apartments offer spacious, light, airy, comfortable accommodation for individuals, couples, groups and families. Each of the private, self-catering apartments is completely self-contained, with its own well-equipped kitchen (including large fridge-freezer & full-size cooker), private bathroom, entrance, patio or balcony, lounge area and a secure lockable safe for your valuables. Tamarind is the most spacious apartment, with a large decking area overlooking Big Bay and Heavenly Bay. There are two bedrooms – one with a queen-size bed and the second with sturdy adult-sized bunk beds that can be separated into two single beds if required. The second bedroom is smaller and has restricted views, more suitable for children. This apartment can be connected with Saffron so is perfect for larger groups, family re-unions, and friends and family who want to stay together. Each of the private self-catering apartments is completely self-contained, with its own well-equipped kitchen (including large fridge-freezer & full-size cooker), private bathroom, entrance, patio or balcony, lounge area and a secure lockable safe for your valuables. Towels and bedding changed twice weekly. Castara Cottage does not offer 5 star luxury with all the mod-cons, but it does offer great value-for-money and is unpretentious, naturally beautiful, light, airy and attracts a gentle, cooling breeze. You’ll be surrounded by a tropical rainforest with exotic birds (bring your binoculars). At night, the fireflies, sunset skies and stars are incredible. Nature provides fresh pure breezes, bird song and fantastic views all day long. You won’t need air conditioning, TVs or phones! Replenish your stock in the small local shops in the village. Don’t miss out of the fresh fish that is sold at the fishermen’s co-op and the homemade bread at the clay oven twice per week – delicious! More

About the neighborhood
Castara has two beautiful beaches for you to enjoy ! The main beach can be reached by walking down the hill next to the cottage, past Blue Mango. This beach is a long and sandy with chairs to rent. It is a working beach so please relax and enjoy watching the fishermen come and go with their catch. The smaller beach is known locally as 'Heavenly Bay' a great place for snorkelling. It can be reached be walking down the steps beside the cottage and onto Depot Road and the beach. There is a beautiful waterfall just outside the village, and as we are so near to the tropical rain forest, there is a variety of tropical birds which visit throughout the day.
Getting around
A bus service runs through the village approximately once every 2 hours and goes to Scarborough (or L’Anse Fourmi in the opposite direction). Bus tickets must be bought before boarding the bus and it costs $5tt to get into Scarborough. Tickets can be bought from any of the small shops that display a ‘PTSC Tickets Sold Here’ sign, or ask any local person. Please remember that we are in the Caribbean and, as such, timetables do not carry the same weight as they might in Europe or the USA! If you wait at the bus stop (opposite Shirma’s, close to the ATM) at half past an even hour (10.30, 12.30, 2.30) then the bus should come in the next 30 minutes. Sometimes you will have missed it already: sometimes it will take another 60 minutes, somet
