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 . 'Our Place' is built in the traditional wooden style of the area. It has a bedroom at both ends of the 45ft balcony with the large kitchen/lounge in between. The bedrooms have large ensuite bathrooms with shower, hand basin & WC plus hot & cold water. We have fitted filters on the cold water supply in the kitchen so no need to buy bottled water unless you particularly wish to! The kitchen has good cooking facilities with a 'proper Saffire' stove ( not a hot plate !!), large fridge/freezer ( large enough for lots of Carib!) crockery & cooking utensils for 6 & all you will need including a juicer for all that fruit from the garden ( in season) Each bedroom has a queen size red cedar bed with full mosquito nets & sleep 2 people comfortably. We provide free standing fans 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 the apartment upstairs. 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! All accommodation is NO SMOKING except on the balconies. Carpe Diem ' seize the day'More
