A perfect place for eco-tourists and bird enthusiasts looking for a relaxing spot to explore the northern range on foot from. We are situated at the base of El Tucuche, fabled in Amerindian lore as a sacred mountain.
The studio is large and comfortable with good views and perfectly located for guests seeking to explore the island. The apartment also has a PS4 and projector system with Netflix.
This spacious, newly-built apartment has a large kitchen/dining/living/bedroom space perfectly suited for cooking, relaxing, and sleeping. The apartment is entirely self-contained with your own bathroom.
My parents live with me in the house above, but the acoustics and layout of the site means you can feel free to play music and speak freely without worrying about disturbing us or the neighbours.
The bedroom is on a platform raised from the ground level and connected to the kitchen/living area. The bed has a comfy mattress with good quality topper and bed linens.
The living/kitchen area is a great place to relax. The sofa can be folded out to make a sofa-bed which is about the size of a double mattress and could potentially accommodate two people - please be in touch in advance if you want to use the space for more than 3 people.
There is a PS4 and projector in the living are which projects a massive screen onto the wall. There are 4 pairs of 3D glasses and a small selection of 3D and 2D Blu-rays/DVDs, and Netflix should you want to watch anything. There are also some PS4 games.
The kitchen is very well equipped, except for a microwave! If there is something specific you will need for the kitchen, the chances are you can ask for it and I will have it upstairs for you to borrow for your stay, just let me know.
Zugang für Gäste
The whole apartment is yours to use in privacy for the duration of your stay. You are free to use both the downstairs and upstairs garden, which is shared with a very sweet and affectionate Giant Schnauzer. You must let me know in advance if you have a dog allergy so I can make sure he does not come to greet you when you arrive!
Check-in is after 3:00 pm but please be in touch after you have finalised your plans to arrange the specific time so I do not have to wait in the whole afternoon/evening/night wondering what time you will arrive. If there are no previous guests it is possible you can arrange to come earlier in the day - but please be in touch beforehand, and it can't be guaranteed.
On the day of your check-out guest must have left by 11:00 am.
Interaktion mit Gästen
Because the apartment gives you complete privacy, that can be the default in terms of interaction.
But as I am living just upstairs, I'm very happy to chat about things you can do around Trinidad, give tips on anything from getting groceries to setting up a local SIM card, potentially be available sometimes if you'd like a trail guide (arranged beforehand), or would just like to socialise.
Guests must read all of the information on the listing before booking.
Guests must read all of the information in the House Manual (English, pdf file), which is sent by email, before checking-in.
Use extractor/filter fan while cooking.
Use both air conditioning units if cooling the space. Do not have only one on at a time. Both must be set to same temperature. All doors (front door, sliding door, door to hallway) must be closed when operating air conditioning units.
Grew up in Trinidad, studied Art in Montreal and at Chelsea in London, and also lived in the Scottish countryside, during which time I was lucky to travel all around the UK and Europe. Back in Trinidad since 2015. I love the nature that the island has to offer and enjoy welcoming guests here.
