They share the same balcony & view across Castara bay-even from the beds! SPECIAL OFFER 1st April-30th November 2019- £50 per night per studio subject to availability. Please note 5x night minimum stay. Taken on a self catering bases only. Check us out on social media to read more reviews. We are traditionally built and completed in 2007 & are located just a short walk off the Northside Road in the friendly fishing village of Castara on the Caribbean side of Tobago which is a perfect place to relax . The two STUDIOS are block built, they are light & airy with high ceilings & have a fully tiled 'wet-room' styled bathroom with shower, hand basin & WC plus hot & cold water. We have fitted filters on the cold water supply in the kitchens so no need to buy bottled water unless you particularly wish to! They are the mirror image of each other & have complete cooking facilities with a 'proper Saffire' stove ( not a hot plate !!), large fridge/freezer ( large enough for lots of Carib!) crockery & cooking utensils for 4 & all you will need including a juicer for all that fruit from the garden ( in season) Each studio has a queen size red cedar bed with mosquito nets & sleep 2 people comfortably. We can provide an extra single bed or child's cot if requested. We provide free standing fans + a ceiling fan, although the high ceilings keep all the rooms cool. All doors/windows are made of local cedar & are louvered. No need for AC here! Outside a large balcony has drop down blinds for shade & with table & chairs so that you can eat Al fresco . Perfect for bird watching & sunsets! There is separate access to each studio. There is also a shared BBQ area and pizza/bread oven-check first as sometimes the hens lay their eggs in there!. Free Wifi is available to use BUT check with your partner to see if he/she will let you spend time on the internet while you are on holiday!! Both of the 2 beaches are just a short stroll away ( 200 yards ) where you can fish swim, snorkel, fish! We built the house for us and our family and friends to enjoy. The word spread about how good it was so we ended up letting it out to like minded people. You can do as much or as little as you want here. The main thing is to relax and recharge your batteries. That is why we call it the 'great escape'. A bird watchers paradise.Great local food, fresh fish every day, ....In the evening visit the bars and 'lime' with the locals. Visit the small local restaurants to taste the local cuisine or cook up the fish you caught (maybe) on the house BBQ then relax and dream about the one that got away!

Great guests who it was great to hang out with! They really loved the birds especially 'Toyah' the ant Shrike who befriended them ( and their bacon!) As always seems to happen, guests very quickly become friends.......! You are welcome back anytime, OK ?
