Castara Retreats

Hummingbird 1

Enjoy spectacular views from this Tobago holiday apartment

Hummingbird 1 is a one-bedroom Tobago holiday apartment with air conditioning, surrounded by lush tropical gardens and offering affordable, secluded accommodation. Located below Rainforest apartment, it has astonishing views of the beach and the whole of Castara Bay. It also looks east across the garden to the village beyond and to the rainforest ridge in the distance, where the sun rises. Manta rays can regularly be seen in the ocean below and hummingbirds arrive every few minutes to feed on the bananas and colourful flowers. Bananaquits have even nested in the candle holders that we provide for each accommodation!

The apartment has a private entrance via a flight of steps that leads onto the spacious 20-foot long covered terrace that spans the front of this accommodation.

Hummingbird 2 adjoins Hummingbird 1 and it is possible for two couples or a family to rent both these apartments. When the wooden dividing wall between the terrace areas is retracted it creates a spacious 32-foot terrace that spans the whole front of this accommodation with comfortable seating and dining options.

Facilities and features include the following:

  • Bedroom: Air-conditioned double bedroom (12 x 15 foot) with queen size bed, looking directly out to the ocean and beach, and a fitted hardwood wardrobe.
  • Shower room: Good-sized shower room and toilet that is beautifully tiled and lit by flush spot lights with dimmer switch.
  • Kitchen: Spacious and well-equipped kitchen, finished with hardwood windows, doors and cabinets, all made by local craftsmen. The kitchen has the same spectacular views as the terrace and looks to the ocean and beach as well as to the garden and is located to allow ease of access and socialising with both the indoor and outdoor terraces which makes serving meals and drinks easy and relaxing.
  • Indoor terrace: Covered terrace to dine, read, and absorb the ever-changing landscape of ocean, beach, garden and rainforest. This terrace is surrounded by colourful tropical plants that are much visited by a variety of birds and offers seclusion and privacy to those seeking to stay in our Tobago holiday apartment. There are tables and chairs for inside and outside dining,
  • Outdoor terrace: The spacious outdoor terrace is the perfect space for sunbathing, al fresco dining and watching the stars.

Hummingbird 1 offers a holiday in Tobago also blessed with the best of the breezes at Castara Retreats and is noticeably cooler on a hot day than some of the other accommodations. We have as usual designed doors and windows with wooden louvers that allow the breeze through at all times that they are open. For those seeking quality Tobago accommodation, Hummingbird 1 offers the perfect location for their Caribbean holidays.
