We stayed at Gingerbread House for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. It is an adorable little place and Rosemary, who runs it is fantastic. Any questions or needs where quickly taken care of by her. The frogs sing you to sleep each night. Lovely place

Having enjoyed 2 nights at Rosemary's, the location and cute pool stick the most. The room is comfortable and tidy. That having said, I didn't expect to sleep in a newly renovated room behínd the gingerbread house. The website gave me the impression that all rooms were within the pitoresk house, as pictures and texts on the site suggest. Nevertheless...

My wife and I was greeted warmly by Miss Rosie who is fantastic host as well as the rest of her family. They showed genuine care and enthusiasm to have us. Their driver, Panther, was friendly and knew the areas well! The accommodations were beautifully appointed for convenience and secure. You are getting more than your money's worth. Also, location...

Just a perfect location. Great hosts. Very helpful, going out of their way to help us out. We were there to watch a cricket test at the Oval. Very short walk. And amazing food stalls and restaurants in a couple of minutes.

On extremely short notice Rosy was able to receive me and it was Home Again. The back garden is a respite and such a lovely place to relax. Proximity to "The Avenue" and a short drive from most city locations makes The Gingerbread a prime spot to stay. Rosy is the BEST!

Really a nice place for 3 nights in Port of Spain. Walking distance to Ariapita Avenue's bars, clubs, and street food. Nice rooms. Beautiful bathroom and shower. One day we even made the walk downtown to the Promenade. Street parking is available on Carlos but they do have one parking space inside the gate that we were fortunate to have...

We stayed at the Gingerbread House for one week, renting two rooms for our family. Rosy made us feel right at home. Both rooms were very clean and well appointed, a small oasis of quietness and tranquility almost in the middle of town. Restaurants (including several breakfast places) are 2 minutes away. Loved it here!

We rented almost all of the rooms because my husband and I held our wedding celebration in Trinidad. In the days that we stayed at this true architectural gem of a house, we had to coordinate many details for our foreign guests (who were also attending the wedding) and the event itself. Rosemary was incredibly kind and helpful in getting...

First visit to Trinidad and we couldn't have picked a better location and place to stay in PoS than the Gingerbread House. The house itself is stunning & Rosemary was welcoming & generous. She was happy to help organise a driver as needed & Panther was a nice guy. We stayed in an outside room just off the main house...

Our group of eight stayed in the Gingerbread House for four nights. We occupied each of the four bedrooms. Two bedrooms were inside the house, and two had outdoor entrances. Each bedroom has its own style, all of which are tasteful, interesting, and homey, and the beds are very comfortable. The whole complex is gated and feels quite safe, and...
