Very comfortable accommodation, after all it is where we live when we are on Tobago! The view across the bay is the reason we built here !
Carpe Diem Villa was completed in late 2007.
Half timbered construction over a block ground floor.
It is our house and was designed for US to live in and constructed of local materials using all local labour.
The whole point of the house was to take advantage of the view of Castara Bay.
It is set back and 80 feet above the Northside Road in the village of Castara, a small unspoilt fishing village on the Caribbean coast of Tobago.
You will not find jetskis etc but you will find peace and quiet and a chance to really relax.
The beach is safe and kept clean by the villagers. Lifeguards are on duty during the day. There are NO hustlers!
They are usually asked to 'move on'.
In the village are guides and boatmen to take you into the rainforest, visit waterfalls, take you fishing & then to a bbq the catch on a secluded beach.
The local bars are friendly with locals, expats and visitors all 'liming' together. Crime is almost non-existent. The property is covered by 8 security cameras .
