Hummingbird 1 – Tobago holiday apartments
Hummingbird 1 is a one-bedroom Tobago holiday apartment surrounded by lush tropical gardens and offering affordable, secluded accommodation for couples seeking a Caribbean vacation. Located below Rainforest 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.
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. It is perfect for families or for those who appreciate privacy within a shared environment with two en suite shower rooms.
Hummingbird 1 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.
Facilities and features include the following:
- Bedroom: Large double bedroom (12 x 15 foot) has a queen size bed with good quality mattress, pillows, white cotton sheets and bed cover, and is covered by a very large mosquito net on a rectangular wooden frame that allows lots of space underneath. The bed looks directly out to the ocean and beach and the atmosphere is enhanced by the carved sun panels that are featured above all the windows and doors and allow the breeze to flow throughout the day and night as you enjoy your Caribbean vacation at Castara Retreats. The bedroom has 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 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. The kitchen is well-equipped with top of the range cooker and full size fridge-freezer and has quality utensils, pans, coffee and teapots, glasses and china plates and bowls.
- Terrace: Covered terrace and outdoor 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, two comfortable lounge chairs and a handmade coffee table for taking your ease, and a full-length hammock if you are seriously intent on relaxing.
- The whole apartment, including the terrace, is illuminated by spotlights with dimmer controls, which are perfect for creating soft low lighting for a romantic atmosphere, with the added benefit of avoiding the tropical insects that are attracted by bright light.
- There is a small security safe for cash, documents and other valuables, as well as an iron, ironing board, hair dryer, and iPod docking station (You can also use your iPhones and MP3 players on the system provided you use the mini jack to stereo RCA cable that we provide.)
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 couples seeking quality Tobago accommodation, Hummingbird 1 offers the perfect location for their Caribbean holidays.
