Prostor

As of 14th January 2016 the power station has been decommissioned. Yippee!
However, there has been no information as to when demolition of the plant will take place or what will be built on the site. This is prime land so something will be built. It is only fair that you know that if you book with me, it is possible that your stay may coincide with demolition or construction over the road. Ho hum…. This is Trinidad!
I love my country but we are a mess! There is always something being pulled down or put up somewhere around the city!
My way of dealing with it is to go bird watching for the day or go and lay on the beach for the day if I’m not working.

So read on to find out about “Warm & Sunny in Port of Spain :)
This is a large bedroom in an old house with wooden floors throughout most of the house and large airy rooms. If you are coming to Trinidad for work we are ideally located within walking distance for access to meetings in the city centre, Hyatt, Radisson or the government Parliament and offices on the waterfront. If you are coming for a holiday this is a small country so no where is far but the traffic can be horrendous!
This location is about convenience not beauty.
Port of Spain is on the sea, so looking at a map, visitors might expect a more scenic location. However Port of Spain has no beaches and is very much a modern high rise city. The view from my home is the neighbours and the power station. There are no scenic views. To get scenic views within the city you have to stay in the Hyatt, Radisson etc. The street I live in used to be all residential. I am now the only resident and I am surrounded by businesses. As a location it is perfect for moving around the city without having to resort to taxis. I am sorry that I can not provide beautiful views :(

Dostupno gostima

I am a Certified Tour Guide specialising in Birding, Kayaking, Camping, Historical & General Sightseeing Tours. I charge US$15 per hour except for day trips to Maracas Beach for which I charge US$50 even if you want to stay for ten hours :) The cost of kayaking or camping trips are variable depending on where we go. Kayaking starts at US$60 per person and camping trips start at US$250 per person. If I am already booked for tours during your stay and there is room in the vehicle you will be welcomed to join the tour with the agreement of the primary client. Or I can connect you with one of my fellow Certified Tour Guides if I am not available.
Aside from that my aim is to make your visit as enjoyable as possible! This is afterall a party nation :)

Ostale napomene

While this is normally a quiet neighbourhood, like the rest of Port of Spain it can be noisy during Christmas & Carnival.
Carnival next year is on the 12th February & 13th February 2018.
Important cultural difference to note, the day starts at 6.00 a.m. here. Sometimes a little earlier, therefore city noise starts at 6.00 a.m.
My dogs are yard dogs. They do not live in the house. The dogs are contained in the rear yard and rear verandah which is NOT part of the guest accommodation. They do bark at night when necessary as do all the neighbourhood dogs :) They also bark around 6.00 a.m when the city starts coming alive as do all the neighbourhood dogs. Dogs are an essential part of home security in this country. BRING EARPLUGS if you think it will be an issue ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A LIGHT SLEEPER. Also at carnival big trucks can pass at anytime with massive speakers that shakes the neighbourhood. You've been warned :)
This is a dusty city. We get Sahara dust every year for several months. Actually, the entire island experiences varying levels of Sahara dust every year. Free soil from Africa.... nice :) Look it up if you don't believe me :)

Because of previous experiences I am forced to say the following even if it does not sound welcoming:
Please remember that this is my home not an impersonal guest house or motel. When you book to stay with me you are booking to share my home with me. I live here too and Trinidad is a small country. Everyone knows your business usually before you know it. If you are coming to Trinidad for a Tinder/Grinder hook-up or similar experience, do not book to stay with me. Go somewhere impersonal. There are lots of cheap guest houses where you can pay by the hour if you don't want to pay hotel rates. There is no charge for additional guest because no additional guests are allowed and Airbnb does not have an option to say so. No additional guests are allowed and no local visitors are allowed. If you arrive with more people than you booked for, entry will not be permitted. Check in time is anytime at your convenience as long as you have told me your Flight Number and how you plan on getting to my home. Otherwise it is after 3.00 pm and no later than 8.00 pm. Communication is everything with Airbnb :) While you are here I expect you to respect the security of my home and check that you have locked up properly as you come and go. It is in your interest too.

Smoking is permitted in the front verahdah or garden. It is not permitted in the bed room or en suite bathroom or any of the communal rooms - kitchen etc.

Hint: Ladies & gentlemen with long hair, yes your hair looks beautiful, but not in the drains or the floor. It only looks beautiful on your head :) A removal before your departure would be appreciated.

Except for the sound of laughter, please keep noise down to a respectful level.
I want you to have an enjoyable stay, so if you need anything, just ask :)

Ally's place was quite central, its a short walk to Savannah, Frederick St, Promenade, night life and street food - ask Ally to point you to the best doubles, gyros and breakfast place! Ally is an excellent guide for bird watching, she's also funny and very pleasant to talk to, we learned a lot about the people of Trinidad and issues they are facing. She also helped us acquire a freshly picked cocoa fruit for tasting and learn a bit about chocolate making by talking to the farmers. She's really nice, she even made "cocoa tea" for us on our last day! Thank you Ally, we'll be back for sure!

I’ve stayed with a number of great hosts, but I have to say, Ally topped them all. She really does want her guests to come away with a great experience and is willing to go the extra mile to achieve that. Not only that, but she is incredibly knowledgeable about the island’s history, culture, and nature. Ally is a very engaging person, a wonderful conversationalist, and, frankly, just fun to be with. As for her house, it is quaint and clean, and while there is no AC, there are plenty of fans to keep you cool. The bed is large, comfortable, and equipped with a mosquito net. The house is also within walking distance of most of Port of Spain’s sites, restaurants, and bars. I very much recommend Ally’s place and that you take a few tours with her. You won’t regret it and will probably save a few dollars.

When I travel, I love to mix with the locals. Ally was hands-down a go to person. She was reliable, available, and accommodating. Her home was quaint, had character, and lots of space. As a host, she imparts both history and cultural knowledge about TT to couple with your daily adventures. If you are passing through Trinidad, and want to be near the nightlife, Ally's place is convenient as it is mere steps from The Avenue. There were also endless food spots nearby. Finally, because it is quite central, I was able to see different parts of the island in a reasonable amount of time. Thanks, Ally!

This experience was one for the books. My first time ever staying in air bnb, and it just so happened to be in another country. I must say this, Ally was AMAZING. She was like a mother away from home with her hospitality, and kind heart. Her house was beautiful, and in a perfect central location close to everything you would want to do as a visitor to Trinidad. My sister (who was also staying there) is someone who was skeptical about staying there worried about being safe, but after our stay she was already talking about another trip back to Trinidad to stay with Ms. Ally because she felt at home. So I must say to individuals who are worried about safety, this location is in a quiet peaceful area. My stay with Ms Ally is the reason I will never stay in another hotel when traveling abroad. I definitely can't wait to plan another trip back to Trinidad to stay with Ms Ally again. Oh yea Ms Ally is a certified tour guide so she will be able to show you some pretty cool places that most host will not be able to. I definitely recommend staying with her! Until next time Ms Ally!!!

The place is fairly run down, no A/C and basically no way to protect from mosquitoes. On the flip side - the room is a great value for money, convenient..Ally's house is just a short walk from the Avenue. Overall I can't praise the room all that much. However, Ally was an amazing host, so accommodating, warm, friendly, resourceful and generous. I enjoyed her full hospitality and availed myself of her ample book selection :)

Hi Michael, I think you must be confusing my description with another listing :) In the very first paragraph mine says "No air conditioner. Electric fans provided throughout." Seventy... yes 70 reviews and no one has mentioned mosquitoes... sigh.... There is a mosquito net that covers the entire bed which you can't have missed :) After the heavy rain we had while you were here which brought out mosquitoes, you may recall I asked if you were being bitten and pointed out the bug spray which you were free to use and you said you were ok.... sigh. I would much prefer if visitors say while they are here if they have a problem... I would have happily sprayed the whole house. In future it might be a plan to let your hosts know if you have a problem and give them the opportunity to fix it rather than write a review that talks about mosquitoes and there being no way to deal with them... It is a very negative statement and in my opinion unfair. I could have done something about it had you said and given you some cream to put on your bites. Not everyone is affected by mosquitoes the same way. I am 100% certain that your review will negatively affect my future bookings despite the previous 70 reviewers NEVER having mentioned mosquitoes... that's the way of the world :( Also, in my listing, the section on "Other Things To Note" I talk about the city noise and suggest bringing ear plugs if the visitor thinks it will be a problem. I do not think you read the listing properly. It was all there… I was aware when you arrived that you were surprised that there was no air-con... I think you must have read another listing then booked mine on price and convenience... you get what you pay for... I'm just sorry that you thought that was the flip side.... sigh.... Also... double sigh.... the house is not run down.... it is OLD :) This is the first time anyone in 70 reviews has called my home "run down" :( I am wounded... cut to the heart... :( Some people might call it quaint :) Hey ho... so on the basis of your review I am going to add to my description that this is an OLD house and yes I live here... it is a lived in house.... sigh.... I have no intention of hermetically sealing it and installing air-con... the Sahara dust will enter every year :) I like having a little bit of Africa for free :) I think I'll put something in my description as well about Sahara dust and cultural differences and about not to expect to find conditions the same as where you have come from.... heavy sigh... surely that's half the fun of travelling? This is an expensive city... you could have got the conditions you wanted... but not for what I charge :) On a brighter note, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and having you as a guest. I enjoyed our discussions about your business plans and wish you the best of success for the future. Kind regards, Ally :)

I have travelled all over the world and lived in several countries. I spent many years in the UK running a live music bar/restaurant/guesthouse. I am now home to stay with no desire to travel anymore except around the Caribbean. My main interest these days are bird watching, photography and sitting on the beach watching the world go by. I work as a tour guide and photographer. Aside from that I listen to audio books, mess around with some arty stuff and play backgammon when I can find an opponent which is not too often unfortunately.
