Beautiful Colonial Architecture in a quiet neighbourhood, on the main road in St.Anns. This house is a perfect get-away for you and your family or just you and your friends. The house is split to provide comfort for just the two of you or for a large group. There is a one bedroom semi-detached loft that is fully -furnished with kitchenette (additional price) or a fully functional house with all the amenities to provide a home away from home feel, with a large living room, an elegant dining room and a fully functional kitchen with all modern conveniences. With a vegetable mart steps away to a high-end grocery store mere minutes away on foot. The gorgeous botanical gardens 5 minutes away to the back of the property and the Savannah (kite flying, leisure walking, street food: snowcones, coconuts, poulorie) about 20mins walking distance. Taking in a cultural performance at The theatre (Queens Hall) again 15 mins walking distance. Being in the city makes getting to and from nightclubs easy (car/driver recomm.)
The location of the house is ideal for traveling around Port of Spain. There is a bus stop right outside the gates, as well as numerous taxi's heading into and out of downtown. The property also has parking available if you decide to rent a car.
The Savannah and NAPA are close enough to walk to and enjoy a little entertainment.
The museum is also in the same area.
Morning walks through the Botanical Gardens are magical. And a trip to the Zoo right next door to the Gardens is highly recommended.
The house and area are secure with an alarm system, bugler proofing, and security cameras around the premises that are monitored, as we believe in safety first.
We want your stay with us to be enjoyable and worry free.
Information on tours and vehicle hire for beach trips can be made available.

I grew up in Trinidad and went to one of the more prestigious girls high schools in the country (Bishops). After high school I attended the Caribbean Union College where I was first introduced to students and professors from all over the Caribbean. It was my first taste of new but similar cultures. I transfered to York University in Canada and spent the next few years finishing my degree, working and making invaluable friendships there. Having spent that time being introduced to a new way of life and completely new culture, I found myself in a rut so I did it again, and uprouted myself to Turkey, were I spent the next few years in an even more confusing environment. LOL!. But what an experience! Going back to basics, starting from the ground up financially, new friendships, new language, new culture, the learning curve was ridiculous. After another few years, traveling around the surrounding countries, and making even stronger friendships, coming back home was supposed to be easy. But once again I found myself in a totally new environment. Trinidad has changed in the 12years I've been gone. But I trust my instincts and my ability to adapt. Plus I love being around my family again, even when they drive me insane. :)
The house and its surroundings were added to the family holdings in the year 2008. It was purchased from the previous owners (The R.C. Church). Once in possession, my parents with the help of my brother, who designed and oversaw construction, proceeded to update and restore the house, trying to keep the historical features in place. My mom had this dream of a guesthouse and she put everything into designing the interior, from the chandilier to the kitchen plates, this is her new baby. And what a baby it is! As a family project we hope to see it take off and fulfil her dreams. Construction started in 2009 and was completed in 2011 and our first guest was in February 2012. It's a brand new space that I hope our guests will appreciate.
The height of the ceilings and doors in this house gives you the feeling of space and the wood panelling on the walls and floors makes the whole space more luxurious with an old world feeling, while the modern appliances and the house location makes living in this world convenient and comfortable.
