There are several beaches close by as Chaquramas and Maraval Beaches. The house is self contained and has all the conveniences of home, including Cable TV, a sucure Internet Connection and Wireless Service. It sleeps 6 quests in comfort and all rooms have aircondition and ceiling fans. The car porch is remote controlled. The neighborhood is secure, quiet and safe. The house has a big living- dining room, three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen (fully equipped) and a laundry space with washing machine and dryer. Most of all, it is in the center of Port of Spain. There is a smaller house on the same property that can be rented as part of a rental for a maximum of 10 guest per stay. 6 Guest in the front house. 4 Guest in the back house. If you are budget minded this is the place for you to stay. We just added this house as a rental and have no pictures of it as yet. It just became available for carnival 2012 because of a cancelation. More

About the neighbourhood
The place is in one of the safest neighborhoods in POS. The US Embassy is accross the street. The German Embassy is next door. The street vis well lighted and observed by security camera from the US Embassy and the Church across the street are watching over you at all times. In the morning there is a little traffic from persons who have to go to the Embassy. After 3 o'clock it becomes quit and at night it is real quit. The house is a few minutes away from the Queens Savanna. In walking distance of the Botanical Garden and the Zoo. There is a nice little place in waking distance: Kaiso Blues Cafe. Local talent comes there at night to perform.
Getting around
It is easy to reach from the house to many places. You can walk to most. If you don't rent a car and want to go to a beach or shopping center you can make arrangements with a taxi for the day.
