Well it has been a while and as you may have read from my last review... Palermo was very tough to leave... finally it just got tooo cold. So, you all are in for a special treat... after a 17 year hiatus... we have finally come back to, what for us has always felt like our home away from home... Gerry's Place (properly called - The Johnston Apartments.) Tobago, and the Johnston Apartments are synonymous with the comfortable relaxed style of beach side accommodations. Here you have all the amenities which you could want -- a good sized one bedroom (2 bedrooms are available as well) with a full kitchen and the necessary appliances. But, and this is the really great part.. the relaxed atmosphere of like summer cottages in New England. You can smell the sea and enjoy in all (the beach-side as well as the garden apartments) a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea and pigeon point. You will also be in proximity to many of the better restaurants as well as within a short trip to find fresh fish at Pigeon point or Lambeau. We found that for us Gerry makes this place feel like home. Onsite, Gerry has always helped us feel at home and his comfortable management style has kept the Johnston Apartments on of our most favorite apartment list for comfort as well as that "cottage feel" Many of the guests have been visiting for years and there are always friendly greeting wherever we go in the compound. Gerry has always made us feel welcomed and the apartment have just the right amount of space and storage to really feel like we have moved in and can relax. The staff is friendly and most helpful and once again not intrusive.. so if you are those who like atmosphere and don't want that cold hotel with the canned obsequiousness-- this could be your home away from home as well. Just remember, here at Gerry's place kindness abounds among the staff as well as the guests so put on your friendly face and visit and find what could be your next comfort destination here in Tobago. You may be like us, amazed at this step back in time where kindness, and courteousness abound in this very generous country. Many of you will probably be like us, surprised at the generous people of Trinidad and Tobago who live in this archipelago. We have learned that much of what makes a place hit our "most special list" of places in this world we have been fortunate enough to visit, is the People. And Trinidad and Tobago has been gifted in this respect far more than any other place we have been lucky enough to call home. Kathleen has often told me to stop being so limited in my definition of "home". For her it has always been simple -- home is where the heart is. And for us, even after so many years away ... is at Gerry's Place in Tobago... thank you Gerry for everything and all that you have done for every guest who visits your special place.
