For more photos & 117reviews checkout our listing on Tripadvisor A 5 minute walk to 2 safe beaches ( one with lifeguards ) in the quiet fishing village of Castara NOT a resort by any means it is a working fishing village whose friendly people make visitors welcome. Small bars to 'lime' in, places to eat locally caught fish & other dishes & buy locally grown fruit & vegetables, Small stores sell basic provisions & a few gifts & locally made handicrafts.You can help pull in the seine nets or buy fish from the fishermen every afternoon. Swim & snorkel to coral reefs, walk in the rainforest or up to the local waterfall for a cool dip in the heat of the day. Definitely no Jetskis, banana boats, beach hustlers or hair braiders to spoil your relaxing on the beach though you may have to move ( or join in ) if the children play beach cricket! As the name says Carpe Diem "Seize the day" Payment would be via Holiday Lettings 50% non refundable Deposit with balance 30 day prior to travel As I have said, Castara is NOT a resort but a working fishing village which has become popular with discerning visitors who want to get away from the busier south of the island or really just want to relax and unwind. The beaches are fabulous, fringed with palm trees as they should be, fishing boats pulled up on the sand, children splashing in the water after school. Every morning you can help pull in the seine nets and every afternoon the fishing boats ( pirrogues ) come back and then the fishermen clean and sell it from the fisherman's co-operative. Please do not take photographs without asking! This applies to everywhere really.... The main beach has lifeguards on duty during the day. Close by is D'ess Lime Bar to watch football and drink cold Carib. Along the road is Cheno's Coffee shop for a great breakfast and local dishes & wi-fi! Buy a cold drink then walk across the smallest and strangest shaped football pitch along the river bank to the waterfall for a cold quiet dip where sometimes you will only have huge blue butterflies for company. Max's on the beach has for beers and provisions, Kathy's for local lunches, The Almond Tree for roti, Margueritte's for something special, Shirma's for a BBQ on a Friday night, Miss Merline's ( the oldest bar in the village ) to meet the older generation & get local made churned ice cream & pig/chickens foot if you are brave The smaller Little Bay or Heavenly bay as it is known locally is quieter with just the one bar /restaurant the Boathouse where Sharon cooks a variety of her take on local cuisine. She is closed Saturday but cooks up great pizza on Sunday! It is the nearest thing we have to a 'local'! Below the house is Codrington Wallace's bar where we talk politics and the meaning, or not, of life - nothing serious! Bingy just up the road sell fruit and veg while his wife Hazel cooks great bread & food 'to go' You can walk through the bush along trails to small coves which you will have all to yourself or go up into the bush and within 5 minutes you will not be able to hear the sea then you suddenly come out into a clearing and there is a view up the coast to the sisters rocks and beyond. Sorry I have to stop now I am getting homesick....suffice to say it may not be Paradise but it does tick most of the boxes! Traditionally built wood over block long house overlooking the village, beaches and bay of Castara below . All rooms open out onto a private balcony / veranda with wide views of the sea and sunsets surrounded by forest, flowering plants, fruit trees and birds galore! The great escape, as we say, you pay for the room, but the sea, sun, sand, sunsets and wildlife are free!

Our location is ideal for travelers wanting to explore the natural beauty of the island. Parlatuvier Bay, a 10-minute walk on a path along the hillside, or a two-minute drive, offers excellent swimming and snorkeling. Imagine yourself floating above the coral surrounded by schools of thousands of small fish, or sighting one of the rays that frequently appear, or a shy turtle if you're really lucky. In the late afternoon you can try your hand at fishing off the end of the jetty, or greet the local fishermen as they return with their day's catch. If your timing is just right and you have energy, you might even get a chance to help pull in a seine net filled with small baitfish. We highly recommend, for at least one night, that you linger by the pier until sunset. Your reward is a smashing display of glorious colors as the sun sinks into the western sky. For adventures on the high seas, we can help you to arrange boating or fishing trips. Snorkel equipment is available for our guests.The village itself is very small with about 350 inhabitants. There are several good places to eat as well as two well-stocked grocery shops offering an appropriate selection of snacks and drinks. The people here are very friendly and helpful, and many have been involved in building our houses or maintaining the property.Top quality bird watching attracts many of our guests. The island’s most renowned bird guide, Newton George, has identified more than 42 different species of land and sea birds, and our guest log has now registered over 60 birds spotted on the property. Several local trails nearby take you through the rain forest and along rivers to idyllic tropical waterfalls. We can connect you with the top registered guides to help spot and identify the local birds, wildlife and vegetation and share some history of the island. Our most popular local gathering spot is Glasgow's Bar just 100m up the road. Its upper deck offers you the best view of Parlatuvier Bay. Prime time for a lime, the island word for socializing, is sunset, which can fill the sky with a blaze of color.

Operating as a bed and breakfast from November through April, guests can wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee or tea and enjoy a homemade meal to start their day.
