Paradise amongst the parrots and the fruit trees!
We loved waking up every morning to watch the parrots from our hammocks…the chakalaka birds sure didn't let us miss it! Our first breakfast was grapefruits right off the tree on the property…our only regret was not being there in wet season because they also have mangos, bananas, and more all over the property! In general, this villa was a relaxing and romantic escape in the rainforest…though I'd definitely recommend a 4x4 vehicle to get up to the estate. Castara is only a 10 minute drive and the beautiful Englishman's Bay Beach is closeby, though a fairly steep hike! The house itself came loaded with extras that we were appreciative of…lots of cooking ware, extra towels and bedding, games, and beers in the fridge when we arrived. We did have an incident with the stove burner being a bit old and the element frying on us but the barbecue turned out to be a better option anyway! Jason, who tends to the grounds and the guests, was absolutely amazing to us…he brought us all of the local fruits we should try and even a catch of the day fish with some local herbs and spices. He also showed us around the property and taught us about everything they grow there. This villa is definitely a hidden gem and if you want a more remote getaway in the middle of nature, you need to check it out!
Amazing hideaway in the jungle just outside Castera
We could not have been happier with our choice of places to stay here in Tobago's lovely Castera community. The house and setting were perfect for our needs; not super fancy, just peaceful, tranquil and ideal. Our 5 year old was in the pool daily, as were we. Waking up each morning to the parrots chattering in the tress and bamboo was great. So many fruit trees on the property, friendly neighbors, and Jason. Jason oversees the property and is a value added asset not to be underappreciated. He went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay, and became a good friend.
It was hard to leave and we look forward to returning, the sooner the better.
A wonderful holiday
Just what we needed for a really peaceful break away from everyday pressures. The villa itself is a haven on the edge of the rainforest with amazing bird life on view much of the time. A short walk away is the beach, but we preferred the pool side, plenty of shade and comfortable hammocks to lounge in. We also enjoyed the large gardens with the many exotic fruit trees. The local fish restaurants are excellent and only a short drive away. Jason was really incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and added to the pleasure of our holiday.
An absolute paradise
Came here with my husband for our 20th anniversary and couldn’t have wished for a more romantic setting. The amazing location right on top of the hill meant we could watch the stunning rise and setting of the sun every day, and being just a walk from Englishman’s bay we took our time to absorb the stunning nature of the island. We shall definitely be returning in not too long I hope. Thank you Parrot Estate!
Probably a little too remote for us
When we booked this property we knew that it was in the rain forest so shouldn’t really complain as we knew it would be a little remote however it was probably too isolated for us especially as the access road to the house is a real challenge especially in the dark.
The house really is in need of some TLC and is lacking some glassware and crockery sets also.
No WiFi (some may see this as a blessing)
The pool and surrounding area is in need of repair
Safe was not available
Beautiful garden and views. Enjoyed watching and listening to all the species of birds.
Assistance and advice from Jason who is a super character. Rent his jeep as it was a Godsend.
Castara has some real character. The locals are very friendly and food is good in the restaurants.
Kate is very responsive and supplies some really useful local information.
We had a really good time in Tobago although it did rain quite a lot. We would recommend the day boat trip (with snorkelling) with Alibaba. Superb day.
If you want to be located in a remote position with heaps of wildlife around then this is the place for you. My advice is to be 100% sure of what you really want.
Where do we begin? Kate's home was an absolute slice of heaven in paradise. Jason the groundskeeper was a star, such a positive soul, he helped us with any questions or needs that we had. The views were positively breathtaking, we had complete privacy, there were not any neighbors close by - perfect for couples/families that do not want to be disturbed. The many doors allowed the cool Caribbean breeze into the house from every direction, the place is a hidden gem. Every morning I opened our bedroom door and jumped into the pool - we felt like kids again! We never wanted to leave. We hope to return soon :) Thanks for everything!!!!
