Sans Souci is a beautiful, rural, seaside village, about 2hrs drive from the airport and 2.5hrs from the capital, Port-of-Spain. Datt House is a place to relax, unwind, and enjoy nature. We recommend that guests use a car rental service at the airport if they would like to explore the areas beyond Sans Souci. However, we can arrange pick up and drop off for an additional fee.

The space
Datt House is a cosy home away from home. It's a four bedroom house with an open plan living / dining area. The house is decorated in an eclectic style, and with artworks by local and foreign artistes on the walls in every room. Photographs that tell the story of how Clarence "Babsy" and Elwine "Vin" Hordatt built a beach house using a 40' shipping container, which now stands today as 'Datt House', can also be found on the walls. The rooms at Datt House are cool and breezy during the day; at nights it gets a tad bit chilly for us folks here in Trinidad. Room 1. is a corner room with three (3) sliding windows; the largest of the three rooms. Each bedrooms has two doors: one that opens from the hallway and the other opens onto a shared balcony. During turtle season, we often stay up late to witness the magnificent leatherback turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. Sometimes we witness them lay their eggs on the beach directly in front of the house. There is adequate space under each bed to house suitcases. We ascertain the needs of each guest to determine what we will provide in each room to make their stay more comfortable, so if you need additional storage / drawers to unpack your clothing we can accommodate this request. Side tables are provided in each room, with receptacles to place small personal items such as keys, jewellery or cosmetics. Each side table has a shelf for folded clothing items. Behind each door there is a hook for hanging clothing or towels. The beds are a little bit high off the ground, so if you're under 5' 5" (like me) you may have to tip toe to get up into bed. The shower rooms and toilet spaces are large and roomy. Downstairs in the shared living space, there are three dining tables with a sea view. Across from the dining area, there is a cosy sitting area where guests can relax while watching the news, a movie or reading a book. There is adequate seating for guests outside, and two lounging chairs and a hammock for folks who enjoy napping outdoors.

Where you’ll be

Sangre Grande Regional Corporation, Trinidad & Tobago

It's a quiet village. There're a few local bars nearby, and shops that sell a limited assortment of grocery items (walking distance); people from the village meet and chat at these venues. There are also a few vendors in the village who sell quick light foods such as fries, fried chicken and burgers.
