Black Rock is an excellent location & Jema a warm and welcoming host.Although it would be wise to rent a car,there are nearby beaches,restaurants(Fishpot),snack bars(Luane's kiosk) & a great bar(Moon over The Water) within walking distance.Only a very short drive away are Buccoo & also the shops,supermarket,restaurants,beaches and bars of Pigeon Point & Store Bay.If you want to feel that you are experiencing a little more of Tobago life than those in the tourist hotspots then this is the place to be.
Great place. Great location. Jema was super nice and the whole family was super helpful. The apartment was great. Nice big bed. Our own porch. I have nothing but nice things to say. Highly recommended. We had a great time in Tobago! A couple of pointers - 1) you need a car on this island. 2) don't take the ferry.
Die Kommunikation mit Matthias war von Anfangt an unkompliziert und sehr angenehm. Bei unserer Ankunft war alles perfekt vorbereitet und der Empfang sehr herzlich. Während unseres Aufenthaltes gaben sowohl Mattias als auch Jema wertvolle Hinweise und Hilfe beim Organisieren von Ausflügen.
Die Wohnung ist sehr angenehm, geräumig, gut eingerichtet und kühl. Die Küche ist perfekt ausgestattet mit guten Töpfen und genügend Porzellan und Gläsern. Die Bettwäsche und die Handtücher sind von sehr guter Qualität.
Die Veranda ist ebenfalls sehr gut eingerichtet und ein wunderbarer Ort zum Entspannnen. Die Hängematte war mein Lieblingsort! Die Lage in Strandnähe ist perfekt zum Schwimmen und Spazierengehen.
Ansonsten empfehlen wir Besuchern von Tobago einen ganz aktuellen Reiseführer mitzunehmen - es ist nicht ganz einfach sich auf der Insel zurechtzufinden, wenn man viel auf eigene Faust unternehmen möchte.
Matthias hat uns einen sehr guten Guide empfohlen, den wir gerne weiterempfehlen: Christian Achorner, (website hidden). Wir haben eine sehr interessante Tour duch den Regenwald mit ihm gemacht.
These are not standalone units. They are more like apartment units in a small building. We had next-door neighbors. The apartment was basic, but very clean. Bring your own mosquito net, soap, shampoo, coffee, and extra toilet paper. The shared outdoor space was great. There's also a shared washer and dryer as well as a stove and fridge in each unit. Management is a little absentminded. Listed check in time is 12, but the apartment wasn't ready for us until 4.
This is the best part of the island to stay on. It's 15 minutes from the airport and downtown Crown Point and a short drive from tons of restaurants and a bunch of beautiful beaches. Within walking distance of a nice beach and a bar.
Pleasant Prospect is a nearby (maybe 40 minute walk or 5 minute drive) village with a few restaurants, bars, an ATM, a convenience store, and a delicious take away local food stand that's open for dinner and stays open late.
Tobago is more touristy and expensive than Trinidad and this guesthouse is a good value for Tobago.
Thanks for your review ,I m sorry for the late check-in but my wife was a little overworked as the otheres checked out late.
As we are not a hotel but self contained apartments we can t rally offer all demands for that price but if you copme again I will try my best :)
Matthias little residence is located in a very calm and safe area with friendly neighbors . The jungle like atmosphere makes it close to a rain forrest experience. Matthias himself is a very nice man who cares about that you have a good stay, and so does his sweet wife. The apartment is very simple, meeting the basic needs. We mostly hung out on the terrace where there´s a nice hammock and some comfy chairs. Even though Matthias and his wife lives right upstairs from the apartment they were very respectful of our privacy and only came around to ask if we needed anything. All in all, simple and great experience.
Back in the cold....
If you find a few minutes could you send some more reviews for us???

Best accommodation during our stay
We spent a week in Jema's Guesthouse and can recommend it full heartedly. In our 4-week-holiday we stayed in three other apartments, so we have the opportunity to present you with a balanced viewpoint...
The apartment was cosy, spacious, well built and equipped and the owners were extraordinarily welcoming, warmhearted and helpful.
It is nicely situated in the small village of Black-Rock. Although the village itself doesn't sport any special sites, it's nice and a suitable spot for trips anywhere on Tobago. You find a well equipped little market and might get the chance for practicing your liming-skills with the friendly locals. Even though it is a 15 minutes drive to Crown Point and maybe 20 minutes to Scarborough we didn't feel the need to have a rental-car either. The taxi-fares are very reasonable and a recommendation for a good driver easy to get.
We loved to experiment in the big and modern kitchen with all the exotic foods and to sit on the big terrace for our meals or reading in the evenings. The close proximity to the Turtle-Beach invites you to an early morning dip. The beach is wonderful with fine sand, lined by Palm-Trees. Because it's off the beaten track, it's not unlikely that you will have it to yourself. We've never seen it crowded.
In short: we miss it already and hope to be back soon.
Thanks again to Jema and Matthias
Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve à Tobago.L'île et les fonds marins sont d'une beauté surprenante.
L'accueil des gens est des plus chaleureux!
Le gîte de Matthias est très (website hidden) est situé très près d'une belle plage de sable (5 minutes à pied). En se promenant à peine 10 minutes sur la plage, vous arrivez dans une zone de rochers où avec masque, palmes et tuba, vous vous régalez d'un spectacle de poissons de toutes couleurs.
Depuis le gîte, vous pouvez voyager en bus ou en taxis locaux pour un petit budget;cela évite l'angoisse de la conduite à gauche et vous pouvez profiter du paysage!
La cerise sur le gâteau , c'est l'accueil chaleureux de l'épouse de Matthias, Jemma qui tout en étant très discrète vous conseille pour passer des vacances merveilleuses!
Jemma nous a proposé ses talents de cuisinière; n'hésitez pas à goûter ses petits plats!!!
Que dire de plus sinon que nous espérons retourner voir Jemma!!
