Castara Cottage consists of three private, self-catering apartments spread over two floors. Each is completely self-contained, with its own well-equipped kitchen (including large fridge-freezer & full-size cooker), private bathroom, entrance, patio or balcony, lounge area and a secure lockable safe for your valuables. See the list below for more details…


Saffron is a very large studio/loft-style room, with a double bed, balcony and wide views over the trees towards Heavenly Bay. This apartment is suitable for 1/2 people, but can be interconnected with Tamarind to accommodate larger groups of adults and children – very popular with groups of friends and large families.



Tamarind is the most spacious apartment, with a large decking area overlooking Big Bay and Heavenly Bay. There are two bedrooms – one with a queen-size bed and the second with sturdy adult-sized bunk beds that can be separated into two single beds if required. The second bedroom is smaller and has restricted views, more suitable for children. This apartment can be connected with Saffron for larger groups of family or friends.



Cinnamon is slightly smaller, with a good sized outside decking area, surrounded by beautiful, lush tropical plants with a view of Heavenly Bay. It also has two bedrooms – one with a double bed and the other with bunk-beds which is only suitable for children or small teenagers, the second bedroom has restricted views.


Tamarind and Saffron are interconnected and can be opened up to accommodate larger groups of adults and children – very popular with groups of friends and large families. All beds have large mosquito nets supported by wooden corner posts. Sheets and towels are supplied and changed twice weekly. There is a portable baby cot/playpen and highchair. Our apartments can get booked up very quickly, especially in the High Season.
