Oceanview apartment 1 br, Roundhouse, Castara, Tobago. Paradise awaits you

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Castara, Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago
Oceanview is a beautifully finished, private self-contained, self-catering apartment with a balcony, occupying half the lower level of Roundhouse, Castara with a spectacular seaview. Every effort has been made by the owner to ensure home from home comfort. This apartment can also be rented as a 2 bedroom on a separate listing 9079050.
The stunning sea view from the property is perhaps one of the most photographed in Castara. Sitting on the balcony at sundown, drink of choice in hand, one begins to understand why. Be prepared for visits from a variety of birds including humming birds and keep a watch out for iguanas and aguti. The sunsets are frequently beyond spectacular.

Defiantly positioned on the hill overlooking Little Bay, the mostly wood, green roofed OCTAGONAL structure makes no attempt to compete with nature but rather...

Interaction with guests
Hi, I live above the apartment which I assure you is so well soundproofed that its not a problem for either myself or my guests. I like to achieve a good balance of interaction with my guests. I am there if needed, happy to have a chat if desired, but on the whole allow my guests to feel free and unencumbered to enjoy their stay in Oceanview and do their own thing. So far, my guests have very much appreciated this.

About the neighbourhood
Oceanview, Roundhouse is well positioned in the village with a shop 30 seconds away which is pretty much always open.
Castara Village is small in size but big in heart. It can be described as mainly quiet with times when the music might be loud. The national past-time of liming (hanging out) can happen spontaneously or as an organized event. It boasts cafes, bars and restaurants which hold something special one night each per week. There are often village events such as Harvest or Fisherman's Fest and inter-village football matches are a fun community affair.
Castara is safe to walk around night and is equally suitable to the very young and not so young and all ages between.
Getting around
There is a bus service from Castara into Scarborough. It runs every 2 hours but the times are not always reliable. .Also, for a pre-agreed price a local will drive you to where you wish to go and either travel around with you or collect you at a set time and bring you back to Castara. Other ways are to join a larger island tour, book an island tour for your party alone, hire a car and driver and customize your own tour or hire a car for the day.Jenny will give you the info once you are at Oceanview.
Car not needed
How to get there
Once a guest has booked, I will contact them by email attaching both directions to Oceanview and an inventory for information purposes. There is a guest book in the apartment which is useful in making the most of your time in Castara.
