Our holiday home built in 1996 in the Caribbean style and the 2 apartments built in 2007 and 2011 are situated in the small village of Black Rock (about 1000 inhabitants) at the south-west coast of Tobago. You are surrounded by lush vegetation and fruit trees and both places offer a glimpse into the tropical garden.
The property consists of the cottage and two apartments and offers home to a total of up to 10 guests. Cottage and apartment can be used together or they may be individually booked.
The cottage is surrounded by a large sun terrace with loungers and invites you to sit and relax there. This terrace house is available to all guests. Two additional terrace levels before the cottage and the apartment are covered. They are available for each living unit separately.
An outdoor shower beside the entrance is meant for all visitors.

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!!
