We booked Hidden Cottage for a family holiday, which consisted of Parents, Aunties, Uncles, Niece, Nephew (his lovely girlfriend) and 'Grumpy' Grandad. My husband, Dad and I have been to Tobago a few times over the last few years and love the Island. We had never stayed in Castara but had visited once before and loved the vibe of the...

Thanks to your whole family for coming to hidden cottage in Castara and lapping up the unique vibe of our village. Steve and Edith say you were a pleasure to have around. We will make sure there is some more crockery for bigger groups like yourself. Loved your comments about hearing the choir sing out from the balcony on a...

We booked this place for 4 weeks in Jan 2017, at a cost of £1600,on the strength of the description and reviews, and were anticipating an idyllic holiday. Most of these reviews are so far removed from the reality that I doubt their veracity. I would rate this establishment lower than YMCA. My reason for writing this review is partly...

Thank-you for taking the time to report on your stay.  Given the house has been loved by people far and wide, from Europe to Canada, I have taken your review very seriously.  We send our utmost apology for the filler/sealant used in the shower cabinet.  We are very upset by the look of it - a white sealer should have...

We rented Saffron for twelve days and could not have been happier. The people of Castara are incredibly friendly and helpful. Castara Cottage was a great home base to explore the Island with a rental car. The owners and manager are very accommodating. Very clean lodging. We felt like we were living in a tree house, incredible! Be sure to...

Perfect location, with a great 2 person apartment which was ideal for a romantic retreat. Only a 5 minute walk to the beach and right in the centre of Castara, we could not have asked for better. The service was great and we found that if we needed help with anything we did not need to worry about asking. The...

We enjoyed the location of Hidden Cottage, set up a steep slope on the hillside but still near to the centre of the village and beach. We hired a car for the whole of our 17 day stay which gave us the freedom to explore the island and drive up the access road. Most people would not find the access...

Hidden Cottage is so remote that we found that the family in the second unit lived 3 blocks from us in Toronto. However - Having heard about the beautiful island of Tobago, we expected that it was going to be lined with hotel towers. Surprisingly neither Tobago nor Trinidad had all that many accommodations. If you want to be in...

Our group was in dire need of a vacation. We researched countless properties in Tobago, looking for somewhere to relax, somewhere peaceful and beautiful where we could recharge our batteries without feeling too isolated from everyone else. The Mot Mot rental in Hidden Cottage was everything and more we could have wanted! Here is a breakdown of our experience: Communication...

Such a shame that this delightful cottage has been neglected. We arrived early evening in need of that great British tradition a cup of tea....but there was no kettle and no matches to light the hob, and guess what we had booked this apartment in November! The kitchen is in need of refurbishment, cracked tills and a well worn wooden...

We thank you for your feedback and apologies that your visit did not live up to your expectations. The kettle should have been there for your arrival – it was being replaced after the last guests left – and come up to the village the next day. We have asked our housekeeper to recheck and replace any kitchen wares and...

We enjoyed our stay in Castara, which is a lovely fishing village on the northside of Tobago. It is ideal for a lazy holiday for people who love the country side. Sitting on the shady veranda overlooking the green, watching the birds, liming in the hamaca while reading an interesting book. The little pool at site is perfect to have...
