Firefly - alternative to Tobago hotels
Firefly is a studio accommodation with en-suite bedroom, a simple kitchen and a sweet garden terrace with lovely views towards the ocean and setting sun. As night arrives, you can enjoy gazing up through the tropical garden alight with fireflies and beyond to the expanse of the star-lit sky. Firefly is the smallest of Castara Retreats’ accommodation options and is therefore the most modestly priced. Firefly offers high quality accommodation and great value - a wonderful alternative to Tobago hotels.
The compact kitchen area offers facilities for preparing cold food. Although it doesn’t have a stove, guests are welcome to request use of a barbecue – great for cooking up the catch of the day! For those who see a holiday as time-off from daily routine of cooking, this is the ideal place to stay. Guests seeking a hot lunch or evening meal eat out in the village or at Castara Retreats Restaurant. ‘The Coffee Shop’ is two minutes’ walk down the road and is the most popular place in the village for a cooked breakfast and homemade bakes.
Facilities and features:
- A spacious air-conditioned en-suite bedroom (16 x 16 feet or 5 x 5 meters) with views of the ocean from the large queen size bed and seating area with small sofa, chair and coffee table. At the other side of the room is the compact kitchen area with facilities for preparing cold food. This includes a small fridge, toaster, kettle, sink and crockery. An outside barbeque is available on request.
- For many of our guests who prefer not to use aircon, there are two large windows that, when left open, let in the breeze and the natural sounds of the ocean. A quiet ventilation fan creates additional air movement. A spacious en-suite shower room with large mirror and discrete spotlights.
- The floor is polished pitch pine and the walls and ceiling are boarded with either cedar or pine.
- Outside is a small open terrace with a lovely view of the ocean and space for two comfortable beach style chairs and small table.
Firefly offers wonderful and affordable accommodation option in this quiet fishing village on Tobago. Everything in Firefly is well appointed to the high standards that guests have come to expect of Castara Retreats or indeed of a luxury Tobago hotel.
