89 Woodford Street is centrally located in Port of Spain.
If you are into running or walking, you are right by the Queens Savannah which is used to run around, stretch, or walk by the locals as well as visitors.
Or you can just sit down on a bench and drink some coconut water from a local vendor parked there with his truck.
There is a first class fitness center and TGI Friday's in the BP building by the West Queens Savannah.
You have many different restaurants around the area. From very expensive to moderate.
The Hilton Hotel, The Crown Plaza Hotel and Kapok Hotel are in walking distance.
The Presidential Palace and Prime Minister Office are around the Savannah. The Botanical Gardens and Empire Zoo are by the Savannah. In walking distance.
The American and German Embassy are around the corner from the House. The Roman Catholic Church is by the Savannah.

The Red House, Place of the government of T&T, is 10 minutes away. The Queens Oval, where the Cricket Test Matches are played, is in walking distance.
The Soccer Stadium is in walking distance.
In short, you are in the middle of it all.
As for Carnival time you could not get any closer to where the action is. The Calypso Tent has the competitions nightly in the Savannah.
Jenny on the Boulevard, a very popular place and my personal favorite, are a few minutes walking from the house.
A new Italian Restaurant is on the end of the block, a 5 minute walk. It is a little pricy, but has good food, nicely presented and good service. They have nice pasta dishes on the menu. Opposite that you have an Indian Restaurant and a Chinese Restaurant is on the other corner.
The two things you should have at least one time while you are in Trinidad: Roti and Doubles.
The place around the corner has about the best in town.
But you have to place your order before lunch, because they close in the afternoon.
A local mini super market in case you forgot to buy something that you need.
If you are attending a business meeting, conference in one of the big hotels, or have to be in Trinidad longer than a few days, you might want to rent a house, instead of a room with a mini bar.
There are 2 - 32 ' Flat Screen TV's and a DVD player.
You also have a Direct and a Wireless Internet Connection.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1954

About the owner: Lucy Aquan Soethout and Hans Soethout. I married my husband in 1966 and we live in Westbury, Long Island, New York. Hans is from Holland, Amsterdam and I am from Arima Trinidad. We met in 1964 on the NY World Fair, when we were both working for Hilton International. I opened the smoke oven in the Trinidad Hilton in 1962. In 1996 I renovated the house with the intention of spending my retirement years with my husband in Trinidad. However the best laid plans sometimes don't work out. All our kids, 8 and grand children live all in the US. We stayed in Westbury where we live now for 36 years. The house was empty most of the time, only being occupied for short vacationds by the family. Hans saw an article in Travel + Leisure Magazine in 2005, which was about renting a home instead of staying in a Hotel or Inn. He contacted Home Away and signed up for a trial. It worked out well. We have been with Home Away since 2005.

Why the Owner Chose Port of Spain:
I bought the house in 1954 because I needed a place close to Queens Hospital in POS for one of my sons who was very ill. I had a restaurant at 85 Henry Street, when Hilton asked me to become their food consultant for the La Boucan Smoke Oven they wanted to open. My reason for buying the place, is the same reason I give you: Location. Location. Location. In 1996 I renovated the house with the intention of spending my retirement years with my husband in Trinidad. However the best laid plans sometimes don't work out. Our kids, 8 and grand children live all in the US. We stayed in Westbury where we live now for 36 years. The house was empty most of the time, only being occupied for short vacationds by the family. Hans saw an article in Travel + Leisure Magazine in 2005, which was about renting a home instead of staying in a Hotel or Inn. He contacted Home Away and signed up for a trial. It worked out well. We have been with Home Away since 2005. I walking distance of everything in POS. Mals. Shops. Down Town. Football Stadium. Cricket Stadium. You don't need a car to get around, you can walk it or take a cheap taxi that are passing by the Savannah all the time. There is also a new and imporoved public bus transportation system. You are close to the Ferry boat to Trinidad and the Water Taxi to San Fernando.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The rooms are a good seize and you have a high ceiling. If you want privacy for a few hours you can find that inside the house. The street is very quit after 2 o'clock in the afternoon. The house is set up as a home and if you read the reviews, you see that mentioned several times. Feeling safe is a great part of your vacation and Woodford Street gives you that security.
