Castara Riversde Apartment: central castara

We made a reservation as it was during holiday season

The rate was respected and we had the whole apartment for ourselves.

There are three rooms so maybe the kitchen could be crowded if the apartments are all occupied.

Very central place, near local stadium, at the entrance of the path to waterfalls.

A lot of activities arganized by this family, everybody taking part in the tourist business.

The coffeeshop serves very good breakfast and local food.

Parrot Estate Villa: Peaceful Luxury Villa amongst the wildlife

My wife and I stayed at Parrot Estate Villa in April 2008 and had a lovely holiday there.

The villa is located in between the fishing village of Castara and the secluded Englishman's bay beach, up high on the hills. I would recommend anyone to stay here.

it is a few minutes drive down the hill to Englishmans Bay which is a lovely secluded beach with excellent snorkelling. We also used the villa as a base to drive around and explore the entire island.

The villa is US$1000 per week year round, which if you have 4 people staying works out to a very reasonable $250 / £125 per person for the week. Pictures and contact at their website below.

The villa is very private and tranquil - nearest village is a 10minute drive away; there are a few other villas, the nearest one being on the next hill around 500metres away.

There is a nice swimming pool, several really relaxing hammocks, and wonderful gardens with fresh grapefruit, lime, papaya, bannanas, and frequented by green parrots and hummingbirds amongst other birds.

There are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a fully equppied kitchen, as well as other ammenities such as books, games, TV/ DVD, binoculars and snorkelling equipment.

Car hire essential - manual Jeeps without A/C on the island can be had from around £20 per day.
