I enjoyed my stay but...
With a bit more attention to detail this could be a wonderful place to stay. Despite good rapport with Kimberly, the owner, it was not quite as relaxing as I had hoped. I booked for 11 nights but could only stay 8 due to being double booked. The house is in a lovely setting and the kitchen has everything you might need. Visitors should be aware that the outside doors do not lock, there is no window glass and no security safe so you should take your valuables with you every time you leave. The family's dogs are adorable when they are not barking and will lay at your feet, but will walk off with all your socks so put them in a drawer, especially the sweaty ones from a day walking the enchanting forest and waterfalls. Chacalaka birds and whistling frogs entertain you at night and the bugs stay out somehow. The lovely beach has one restaurant serving wholesome food til 4.30 and is 12 mins brisk walk downhill, 17 mins back. I chose Sunday and Tuesday as quiet planning days on my laptop but I was not told about the planned power out on Sunday or that the gardener would be strimming at high decibels on Tuesday for 8 hours from 6.30 in the morning, so both these days were wasted. The shower was only hot once, the controls kept falling to pieces and the water failed completely on my last night but was soon mended, though it meant I lost my planned night in Castara listening to drummers. The cheap and uncomfy pillows (one each) really show that the attention to detail the designer put in to the property has been lost in the letting and so at present the property is overpriced. Rent a car if you are going to stay here. The amazing Corbin Wildlife Park near Mason Hall is then in easy reach and is a must for all travellers and best explored on your own rather than a tour group. Here Tobago's David Attenborough, Roy Corbin, will guide you through his efforts to restock the wildlife of Tobago. You will get very up close and personal with caiman, amadillos, possum, Sally painters, agouti, boa constrictors and the one remaining ocelot in Trinidad and Tobago.

Beautiful location and accommodations with a few areas of improvement needed.
My partner and I stayed in Bayview for a week and loved the setting and views and amenities. The ambiance was fantastic and most of our needs were met. Some improvements that would have made our personal stay more comfortable are as follows: The kitchen should absolutely have a coffee maker. We made our coffee using a strainer over the blender each morning which was inconvenient at best. The unit should include a blow dryer. The owner graciously lent us one from the main house which we greatly appreciated. The bed is particularly uncomfortable and two pillows would be nice. The barking dogs are a real issue however. I know they present a feeling of security overall, but not when they are allowed to bark all night and at all hours. Is someone lurking or not? And who can sleep?

Quiet and beautiful
We loved our stay in Richard Hayton's cottage on his beautifully landscaped property. The cottage is open, airy and well equipped. Up on a hill we could listen to the waves in Englishman's Bay. The beach is gorgeous and practically deserted. Nearby Castara is a charming small town with some very good restaurants. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. I hope we have an opportunity to visit Tobago again. If we do we would definitely stay in this cottage again.

Great Cottage
This little cottage was perfect for the two of us. The kitchen was modern and had everything we needed, the bed room was small but had lots of hanging and draw space for both of our things, the bathroom was very clean and the shower was spacious. Dominique and Rick are very nice and were always available to answer any questions we had. The location is also very nice, a close drive to all the beaches we like yet, still very private to give you the escape. We would certainly stay there again.
