The property offers 2 one-bedroom ground-floor apartments, plus a spacious two-bedroom apartment on the upper floor.

Beach House

3 x Self-Catering Apartments in Castara, Tobago

Beach House, Castara, Tobago

Nestled directly beside the golden sands of Castara's nicest beach, the Beach House is a traditional local wooden open-style two-storey house. The upper floor forms the owner's beautifully-decorated one-bedroom holiday apartment, Coconut Heights. The ground floor has two smaller and simpler studio apartments.

We have stayed in Coconut Heights several times and consider it the most authentic and atmospheric accommodation in Castara. Other properties in the village charge considerably more and yet are pale imitations of the real thing. See our review for full details of these unique apartments.

Lillibets, Castara, Tobago

Located just 40 metres from Castara's wonderful Heavenly Bay beach, Lillibets is a two-storey apartment house with four self-contained one-bedroom apartments. Located on a lush hillside, the property wont suit those with mobility issues, but the higher location does provide the most beautiful of views over the village and bay and ensures that the apartments benefit from the cooling breezes. The apartments are simple, but extremely good value for money, particularly when considering their proximity to the nicest of Castara’s beaches.

Mahi Mahi Suite

Self-Catering Apartment in Grafton, Tobago

Mahi Mahi Suite, Grafton, Tobago

Mahi Mahi Suite is a 3-bedroom luxury condominium within the prestigious Black Rock Dreams development. This two-storey property is home to 8 privately-owned condominiums and offers direct access onto beautiful Grafton beach.

We recommend the 4 outer units of the Black Rock building, primarily because these are the largest and lightest units. They offer some of the highest standards of self-catering accommodation available on Tobago. Accommodation of this standard, in such a stunning location, does not come cheap, but as with everything, you get what you pay for.

Mahi Mahi Suite was the first apartment we reviewed at Black Rock Dreams. Not wishing to flood the recommendations with near-identical listings, Mahi Mahi acts as representative of the four units that we recommend in our listings of 'Recommended' apartments. The other units are Chaconia Suite and Flamboyant Suite. A fourth unit, Blue Marlin Suite, is due to be reviewed in March 2019.

The central location makes the property an ideal and economical base for touring Tobago and, provided that you have a car, is within a short drive of all the main shops, restaurants, beaches and activities.
