Spacious master bedroom with AC and your own patio. A 10-minute walk to taxis, buses, a gym, supermarket, pharmacy, and fast food spots.

I'm happy to help and I look forward to meeting you!

The space
A three-bedroom/two-bathroom home that exudes a colourful Caribbean charm. The house is a clean, cool, and open space, with common areas at the front, bedrooms on the eastern side and bathrooms/utility area on the western side of the house. It was built in the sixties, so expect to find some loving wear and charming patina both inside and outside.

Your master bedroom, which has its own in-room refrigerator and television, adjoins an enclosed patio where you can relax in the hammock, enjoy your morning coffee, and enjoy the sounds of a variety of local birds at different times of the year. From the patio, you'll have access to a lovely little garden at the rear, with mango, banana, and bay leaf, pawpaw (papaya) trees, and a variety of herbs and flowering plants. There's also a coconut tree, and if you're lucky, you might just be here in time to drink some refreshing, healthy coconut water directly from the nut.

Guest access
Guests have full access to the house except for the other bedrooms and storage/washroom area of the house. The kitchen includes a stove, refrigerator, toaster, blender, coffee maker, French press, rice cooker, crockpot, and microwave oven that guests are free to use. You're also free to use any condiments I have at the time of your visit.

Other things to note
If you're searching for a cheaper option, I have two other rooms listed with a shared bath available here on Airbnb (go to my profile to see the other liatings so you may want to consider those as well. The other bedrooms are smaller and share a bathroom. Please note that they may be booked by other guests during your stay, but I will inform you of this prior to your booking. Your master bedroom is air conditioned and includes a small refrigerator, microwave, TV/DVD player, and laundry basket. It costs TT$30 per load to wash (so I can offset the cost of soap, water, and electricity). You'll have to air dry your clothes, or I can arrange laundry services (wash/dry) for US $20/load.

I will provide you with the free WiFi access password upon your arrival.

All linens (sheets, towels, and washcloths) are provided. These are changed weekly.

You'll find a complimentary snack basket in your room.

An electric bug-repellent (bug mat) is available in each room for added protection. Replacement repellent tabs are also provided. Please unplug the device when you go out.

An iron and ironing board are located in the kitchen between the refrigerator and pantry cabinet.

I try to conserve energy as much as possible so please turn off the air-conditioner unit when you go out. An electric fan is also provided for your comfort if you do not like air conditioning.

Location

Diego Martin, Trinidad and Tobago

My home is located in the popular Port of Spain suburb of Diego Martin. It's a relatively quiet, down to earth Trini neighborhood. You'll hear my neighbours from time to time, but it's quiet for the most part. Respect for the neighbours is appreciated.

I'm a television/film writer and producer. My work puts me in touch with people of all backgrounds, so I'm especially happy to host Airbnb guests since they are often adventurous, tolerant, open-minded, and genuinely interesting people. My goal is to provide you with an authentic "Trini" experience: an unpretentious and spontaneous immersion into Caribbean life, so when your trip is over, you'll feel a sense of belonging and community that you'd never get at a hotel. You'll often find me in various parts of Trinidad and Tobago documenting the stories of everyday people, so I'm happy to take you on tours and day trips around Trinidad. Ask me about my #StaynPlay packages. I'll document the experience for you and provide you with a digital keepsake you'll always have to treasure! I look forward to hosting you soon!

During your stay
My work schedule allows me the flexibility to be as unobtrusive or as available to you for most of your stay. I can arrange day-trips for reasonable fees based on location. These include beach "limes", seasonal turtle and bird watching tours, trips down-the-islands, the Pitch Lake, and scenic mountain drives to name a few. If you're a returning ex-pat, please ask me about my Roots & Records Experience that will help you to (re)connect to your past through (sometimes new) family members, old photographs, and family archives. I'll document the experience for you and provide you with a digital keepsake you'll always have to treasure!
