The Gingerbread House
Ranked #8 of 44 Port of Spain B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Panther, the driver picked me up at POS airport. His professional friendly personality made me comfortable. On arrival Rosemary greeted me and took me to a beautiful apartment looking site close to the pool. This is the beginning. Rosemary is gracious and always available. I enjoyed the jets in the pool, the patio, socialized with other guests, played with the family dog, Ollie. Also, Rosemary was instrumental in arranging for my ferry trip and hotel accommodation to Tobago. This, beautiful historic home has a family environment and highly recommended for cleanliness, a garden of beautiful flowers, birds and a friendly groundskeeper with parking and security. I highly recommend The Gingerbread House for singles, couples as it is respectable, affordable and comfortable.

Room Tip: There are 2 places of accommodation. I was close to the pool in a modern air conditioned house with...

This extremely comfortable Guest House is a true "find" and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a central location, a respectful and accommodating staff, lovely rooms with A/C and extremely well appointed facilities. The garden,poolside and terrace are all well maintained and provide respite from the hustle & bustle of nearby Ariapita Avenue where you can find numerous restaurants & clubs. Rosy is the ultimate hostess who cares for her guests and makes everyone feel at home.
Make your next stay in POS the Gingerbread House - you will not be disappointed.

Rosie and Bernard host a lovely 3-bedroom restored house in Port of Spain. The location is 1 1/2 blocks from Ariapita Avenue which is teeming with good restaurants. The rooms are comfortable and air conditioned - a pleasant place to return after sightseeing. Rosie is an accommodating and nice person. The price is right and the value excellent.

After a long flight, it was so comforting to arrive at the Gingerbread House and be welcomed by Rosy, the owner! She was very accommodating and extremely helpful with our many Trinidad inquiries!
I loved the combination of the restored Carib house and the lovely contemporary bathrooms. The back garden area and deck are a delightful place to relax and plan your travels.
Definitely, a place to stay while in Port of Spain!

Beautifully restored house in Woodbrook area of Trinidad's largest city, with an architect designed addition that includes a private deck and garden pool. Five minutes by car from the Port of Spain where you can take a fast ferry to Tobago. 1 block from Arapita Street which is stuffed with restaurants and clubs. We had an unexpected change in plans, and Rosie accommodated us for an extra night. over all a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Garden room is wonderful.
