“A surprising gem”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

First off, I think the Trip Advisor title is incorrect; it should read: Harris' Guest House AND Jungle Tours [since Harris gives tours of the rainforest, etc.]. Secondly, having just returned from Tobago, I am happy to report that Harris' guest house was more than we anticipated it would be. Located in Canaan, Tobago, you are a mere 15 minutes drive away from Scarborough, Storebay, and Pigeon Point. There were no pools or anything of the sort, but comfortable and clean bedrooms with a kitchenette to be shared by the various guests. We were more interested in exploring the island during the day and returning at night to a nice, cozy room rather than relaxing at a resort all day. With that said, if you are looking to soak up the sun all day without too much adventure, you should probably seek lodging elsewhere. However, if, like us, you want to get out there and truly discover Tobago, this is a comfortable and relatively inexpensive place to stay.

11 of us stayed at Harris Guest house and I am very pleased with the experience. He made sure we felt welcome and at home. He picked us up from the ferry, took us to the grocery, took us on a tour, took us to the beach and even picked us fresh fruit (mangoes, limes, plaintains and herbs). He is a busy man, high in demand but still made time for his guests requests. For my first trip to this island it was a wonderful experience. He was more than hospitable. I know when I return I will come back here. For me the AC, refrigerator and personal bathroom were all giant pluses for me.

We only had one night at Harris’ and just wanted a place relatively close to the airport in readiness for our flight the next day. The four bedrooms come off a large communal living and kitchen area and have a small bit of rough garden running round the outside with chairs to sit out on.

The bedroom was surprisingly well equipped – air con, fan and fridge – with a small ensuite bathroom. It was nothing special, but it certainly met our needs.

Probably the best thing about the place though was Harris himself – he was friendly and hugely helpful, barely seeming to stop between picking guests up at the airport, dropping them off at car-rental places or taking them to the supermarket to pick up provisions. We weren’t there long enough to do a tour with him, but from his conversations he seemed knowledgeable and enthusiastic and I’m sure we would use him if we were there again.
