Enjoyed several days at the Amazon lodge with Peter and Louise.

From breakfast on the veranda watching the many birds waking up in the morning with us to the excursions around Trinidad enjoying the culture and vistas off the beaten track with Peter and Louise my stay at the Amazon lodge was the high point of my trip to Trinidad.

Highly recommended!!

Thanks for the great review, and we really hope to see you later this year when you return to Trinidad. We enjoyed your free-spirited company and think back with fond memories of the many debates around the dinner table, not to mention a card game or two! Safe travels - Peter and Louise

Peter and Louise, Thank you for opening up your home to both John and I. Our time with you definitely put the icing on our vacation, believe me we were in no hurry to leave Trinidad. Your love of the country and your amazing personalities made us feel very welcomed and right at home.

There were so many places we wanted to go in such a short space of time, but your vast knowledge helped us make our sightseeing choices perfect. We enjoyed our trips to the Temple of the Sea, Pt. Lisas, Lopinot Cocoa plantation, you pointing out various points of interest along the way and of course visiting with Thedore and his Hummingbirds. John loved the rum shop stops, learning local expressions, stopping and drinking Carib by the side of the road and being plied with rum and coke, you have definitely turned him into a true Trini and a friend for life. Thanks for being such a gracious host.

We ate all of our meals with Peter and Louise. Peter you are one lucky man that Louise can spoil you with her culinary abilites and us for the short time we spent with you. We were happy and very satsified after all our meals, including the picnic basket and out brown bagged breakfast while at the airport (Louise was up at 3am preparing breakfast on our day of departure). Louise, what wonderful hosptality you have shown us.

Our accommodation was very comfortable, beds and A/C was perfect. Hot water is available. We also had free use to the internet. Best of all, the view to the center of the island, garden, birds and ambience was very amazing. John and I enjoyed our vacation immensely but staying with you was at the top of our vacation highlights.

Peter, on a more serious note. Man, forget dis damn 3 months ting and make it permanent nah (lol). Peter and Louise, Well done!

We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Trinidad than the Amazon Lodge. It is ideally located in the center of the north, near the rain forest, Caroni Swamp, and Maracas Beach, for example. Relaxing on the terraces overlooking a bird-filled tropical garden with a view of the valley was just the thing at the end of each day. Optional trips were guided by Peter, who is a gifted storyteller and has extensive knowledge of the customs, economy, and history of Trinidad. He has great suggestions for trips around the island. Louise cooks creative and delicious dinners using local ingredients and is an engaging hostess. We felt like we were staying with friends. The lodging price is quite reasonable, as are trip and meal fees. Peter and Louise went "above and beyond the call of duty."

Room Tip: Don't be afraid of the rainy season! The first week of June was sunny with only a couple of short rains in the afternoons.

I don't think I could ever rank a B&B higher than Amazon Lodge. I was traveling by myself and was merely spending a night in Trinidad on a layover. Not exactly the idea circumstances for a great stay. However, Peter and Louise are amazing hosts - personable, interested in people, and with that extraordinary joie de vivre that makes time in their presence thoroughly enjoyable. I loved everything about it - from the excellent welcome at the airport, the excellent conversations, the amazing Indian food for dinner, to the very delicious albeit rushed (for me, only for me) trip for doubles on the way back to the airport the next day. It was just great. The space is beautiful (accurately pictured in the photographs); it is close to the airport; rooms were clean and well appointed; and everything about the reservation process and stay itself was well organized. Peter and Louise were happy to chat but also happy to provide you with your own space if that was your thing. I hope I am not overstating things by saying I left Trinidad feeling that I had found new friends rather than simply a place to wait out a layover. Thanks again.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We have found that professional people like yourself really appreciate personal service over the impersonal feeling of being in a hotel room.
Plus we will always take our hat off to good people volunteering your time and expertise to help the less fortunate in the Caribbean. Thank you ... Peter & Louise

The Amazon Lodge was a great place to stay during our busy trip. Their garden is beautiful and peaceful. Sitting on the porch chatting with Peter and Louise over life experiences and enjoying the amazing view of the city was just what we needed to relax during this trip. It was like being home away from home. The rooms are very comfortable and provide all the commodities one needs when travelling. We certainly recommend it.

It was a pleasure to host such special guests, and we look forward to receiving you back at the Amazon Lodge! We are currently working on improving our seating on the porch to increase comfort levels, while we've also adjusted the bird feeders and are planning to erect an orchid shelter and display area in the garden to enhance your viewing pleasure.
