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 Newtown, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago:
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.
