The Gingerbread House

Upon our arrival to the guest house, we were greeted by Rosemary, owner of The Gingerbread House.  She showed us to our guest room which had it’s own entrance (off to the side of the main door). You enter immediately to the bedroom which had bay windows behind the bed, another window opposite the door.  We had a private bathroom that was very spacious and had tall ceilings.  The bathroom only had a shower with sink and toilet. The shower stall was interesting as it was below a spiral stair. I thought it made for an interesting shower enclosure. 

The room also has air conditioning.  Although it was not super hot outside, it was nice stepping into a cool room. There is a TV, mini fridge, and safe in the room.  There is also internet access.  Wifi is a bit iffy as explained by Rosemary but they do provide a cable to hook up to my laptop for internet access and it works perfectly!

Rosemary gave us a tour of the Gingerbread House.  The back has a lounging pool for cooling off as well as a live fish pond.  It’s really pretty out there and I wish I was staying longer to take advantage of this guest home feature.

Rosemary’s husband is an architect and his office is on the same property.  In fact, his office is in the back of the house with the lounging pool.  Such a tempting place to have an office!

Rosemary is a fantastic hostess of the Gingerbread House.  Besides helping us with our plans while here in Trinidad, she also helped us to secure a rental car with Econo-car.

The rate for the room includes breakfast, which Rosemary personally prepares.  It includes orange juice, coffee, or tea.  You start off with a small bowl of fresh fruit salad of pineapple, papaya, and watermelon.  A plate of grilled slices of ham and eggs with diced peppers and mushrooms.  There is also a basket of toasted bread.  If fresh hot breakfast isn’t your thing, cold cereal is available.

One thing I should note is that they take cash only, no credit cards.
