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... More

Additional to being a beautiful building, the Gingerbread House is conveniently located in Woodbrook, Port Of Spain. Parking inside gated compound. There's a pool in back the guests may use. Hostess Rosie welcomed us warmly. A great value for the money.

A real piece of colonial history, this is a beautiful restoration house. I would definitely stay here again. The photos on their website don't do it justice, it's lovely. The rooms are a decent size and the bathroom very modern. They were clean and made up every day. Outside there's a plunge pool and a small seating area. There is... More

We went to the Gingerbread House a couple of weeks ago and had an incredible time. We stayed there for a couple of days, loved the room, very cozy, loved listening to the birds serenading us every day. I actually missed the birds and everything. The house was beautiful, loved the architecture, the pool, the hospitality and the convenience to... More

My second time at Gingerbread and it is still a beautiful house. The traditional architecture is so well preserved! The bedroom was nicely set up and the bathroom is very modern. POS at its best! José Oviedo

We spent 4 nights here and loved the house. Rosemary was very welcoming and organised too. Her emails prior to our arrival really put us at ease. We were also able to park our rental car inside the yard which helped a great deal as the house is close to the Woodbrook which is packed with bars, clubs, restaurants and... More

We spent 3 nights here and loved the house (which has been beautifully restored), the location (close to restaurants, ATM, and the main road into town) and our room which was in the decked garden close to the pool. It was very private, with a small courtyard to the back where we had our breakfast. This does need a bit... More

Definitely an enjoyable stay! Rosemary was quite hospitable, while remaining private enough for us to feel like we were at home. You can't find a more convenient place to stay in Port of Spain (about a two minute walk from the Avenue)! Very clean, spacious and historical. Feel safe and comfortable here, it's a win for sure and very affordable... More

Having stayed in many B&B's in POS, this is the best of the best. Rosemary is a great host and her house is immaculate and tastefully designed. The back garden is a welcome respite from the chaos of Carnival.
