About this listing

Air-conditioned but breezy, fully-equipped studio apartment in gated mountainside community. Security guards, spectacular poolside and apartment views, free wifi, basic cable. 1km from Savannah, city convenience, countryside quiet.

The space

Our unit is one of 57 apartments, but you will still find it is extremely quiet! You will hardly know you have neighbours when you're inside. The pool is a few steps away, close enough to go to just to have a drink but far enough you won't hear others enjoying it. Often you'll find you have the pool to yourself or one other family. there's also a little tub in the pool area which you can enjoy with a drink while you look up at the stars or the mountainside.
The washing machine and dryer are just at the bottom of the stairs, but there are many more around the compound, you can buy tokens at the office but we will leave two if you are unable for some reason to get. we ask you replace them.

Guest access

We are on the top of a hill and there are steps to our unit from the car park (16 down, landing, 14 down - 14 steps up:-). The grounds are beautifully landscaped and very tropical. You can access all the shared areas and there is a barbecue pit at the pool, you just need to check with the main office if it's available for you to use it. I'm not sure if they have coals you can use.

Interaction with guests

We will be happy to give you lots of information on dining, shopping, sightseeing, live music and entertainment.

Other things to note

We would advise that you rent a car in Trinidad. The public system isn't that dependable and it's very hot to walk. If you prefer to get a taxi we can help you as well with that.

Carla's apartment is fabulous. It's clean, feels spacious, plus it feels light and airy. From the moment I found the apartment online Carla was helpful and professional. Once I booked Carla then shared some wonderful insider tips on local sights to see and places to eat. Nothing seemed like too much trouble. The complex is very quiet and peaceful. There were several days when I had the pool and hot tub to myself. When I did see people they were equally friendly. The only slight complaint is about the gradient of the mountain. It's quite an uphill walk. A car would help. That complaint is directed at Mother Nature not Carla! Not sure if I'll revisit Trinidad but if I do then this is where I'd want to stay. I can see why Carla is a Super Host. I had a great time.

Response from Carla:
Thanks CazAnn, it was a pleasure having you and I'm sorry about that "steep" hill. I'm so glad you had a good trip overall as I know it can be a bit worrying at first. Hope you are all settled back in home and the change in climate wasn't too jarring:-)

Carla's place is lovely , the studio in itself is well equipped, clean , centrally located from the city or the beach, with an out of the world view with its location to the top of the hill . Carla really stood out to me with her continued communication via text and calls to insure everything was fine throughout my stay. The community was well maintained with pleasant and friendly neighbors I honestly could not of wanted a better place to stay. If your reading this review you've found the place for a wonderful holiday . Thank you Carla xx,,,,,

Great, beautiful little studio apartment. The apartment was just as described by the host.

The listing description was very accurate. Carla has a beautiful, comfy studio apartment. Boy that hill was steep in more than one location! You definitely need a car with a good engine or a 4 wheel drive. But the steep hills are worth the view! Thank you Carla for being so accommodating! I would definitely recommend staying at your lovely studio apartment!

Response from Carla:
Thanks Sharon, yes hills can be overwhelming but I guess i grew up on a hill so I'm accustomed and whizz up that hill even in the worst of hired cars, but you're right it's much safer and easier with a car with good tyres. I don't think a 4 wheel drive is necessary but maybe might make people feel safer. It was lovely having you and we hope you'll come again. Take care.

Carla's apartment is fantastic. It's a nice size studio with every amenity you might need. Cascade is a great location for Port-of-Spain with most of the bars and restaurants in POS within easy reach. The pool area is fabulous too with amazing views of POS and beyond. Can't recommend both Carla and this apartment highly enough.

Carla's place is great. Being fairly high up the Cascade, you have fantastic views and can watch the sun rise over the hills from the balcony. Having a pool, too, is a massive bonus! Location-wise, it is probably slightly more convenient if you are renting a car while there, but that said, the walk up and down the hill certainly did me good, and isn't too strenuous. Carla was extremely helpful with organising transport from the airport, and answering any other questions I had, and I would certainly recommend others to stay.

Response from Carla:
Thank you Justine. Yes the hill is a steep one but we do walk it ourselves and I sometimes do the steps from the bottom to the top 10 times for exercise and it's great (just not after I've walked the hill). It was really our pleasure having you. Hope you have a good trip and safe travels back.

I'm a publisher and an aromatherapist. The magazine I publish is called Cre Ole and is the guide to dining in Trinidad and Tobago. I was born in the UK but lived all my life in Trinidad except when I went to University at UT in Austin Texas. I live between Barbados and Trinidad and this is our home base in Trinidad which we rent out when we're not there. It is very precious to us and we love it. We hope you do too
