About Chris Runciman
I have spent all my working life to date making things happen for others. Building this house is Yvonne and myself making it happen for us and as a bonus we have been able to create a beautiful place for others to enjoy as much as we do. We have both had and still have pretty stressful jobs. I am in the live music production business and Yvonne was a property manager for a local estate agent in the UK. We have worked hard and still do as few of us are really ever able to retire early and enjoy the fruits of our labours. We call it semi retirement. You only go around once so you cannot let life pass you by. We all do and then it is too late, you do not get a second chance. We love life. Living or staying in Castara is about as good as it gets!
Chris Runciman purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Chris Runciman chose Castara
I was sitting on the hillside when it was all scrub looking out at the view of the bay after I found out the land was available and said 'This is it!'. We decided we needed to stop thinking about a house in the sun and actually build it before we were too old to enjoy it! Then we could share it with family and friends. We fell in love with the village after coming here on holiday and getting involved with the aftermath of the only hurricane to hit the island in a 40 odd years. We were made welcome from the start. The area and the village, beach, the people etc just tick all the right boxes for us. You only get a chance to do something like this once.You can say lets look elsewhere and then think why did we not stay in Castara. Opportunities like this only come once in lifetime...Carpe Diem..."Seize the day"
What makes this Apartment unique
Castara is a friendly working fishing village set at the edge of the rain forest on the Caribbean side of the island..., it has its own waterfall & pool, great beaches, rain forest, a reef, good fishing, sunshine, I am sorry but we would have been mad not to have said yes! It is away from the busier south of the island with it's more tourist oriented areas but still less than an hour from the airport and main town of Scarborough if, and it is a big if, we ever need to go there! We can walk down to either beach , shop go for a drink without needing a car. We buy fresh fish or catch it ourselves, local produce is there at the end of the road or actually in the garden. The best mango tree is behind the house, they drop, roll down and end up by the kitchen door! At the end of the day we have the one of the best views in the village and it would have been selfish not to want to share it.
