Inspired by the barefoot lifestyle of the Paramin community, La Vapeur Estate’s wood cabin embraces minimalist design aesthetic, while featuring panoramic sea views and mountain filled vistas. It is rustic yet luxurious and eco friendly.
“Giselle’s eco-cabin was an amazing experience! Perfect for a refreshing weekend getaway. We would definitely recommend here to everyone especially more locals because it’s such a beautiful, private spot nestled on the hills with great views of the sea and the surrounding Paramin area, giving you a deeper appreciation for the island’s beauty. Gizelle was a great host, very responsive to all the questions and requests we had. The cabin was spotless upon arrival and equipped with basic necessities for a two-night stay. Mr Nick was incredibly helpful and friendly and Ms. Julia was a lifesaver that weekend. Things to note: -The route we took to the cabin wasn't incredibly steep, if you're accustomed driving around T&T and have a reliable vehicle you should be able to make it up there with no worries -It definitely gets chilly at night, we cracked open the doors but it lead to an influx of rain flies and mosquitoes that were quite bothersome in the night and early morning despite the mosquito net and insect repellent. (We'd recommend walking with a small mobile fan or having one placed in the bedroom as one of the amenities) -On that note, the pest control was impressive considering the location (trees and forest all around) -The cabin was higher up on the hills relative to the rest of the village so the cloud cover was very thick in that spot making it difficult to see any sunset or sunrise from the balcony doors, but this is expected during the rainy season. So we would recommend to anyone staying here during this time to take a short walk on the road to get a better view of the Paramin and Maracas Hills. -Most importantly, don't forget to pack ALL your essential cooking supplies and food if you plan on cooking. Even though the cabin is stocked with most of the necessary supplies, it may not be enough to cook with during your stay”

“We had three stays with Ally over our two and a half week holiday, most of our nights being with her. For us, she and the place were great. The honesty and straightforwardness evident in her description are indicative of her personality. She says it how she see it. If you need somewhere not expensive, conveniently located, friendly, homely, genuinely shared, we'd commend Ally wholeheartedly. If you want something like a hotel with associated luxury, this is probably not for you. Examples of what's good: 'I'm going shopping, can I get you anything?'; allowing us to leave our suitcases there when we went to another part of the island for two nights; Ally is also an extremely good guide (esp. to bird-life) and for fair prices will provide that service, though she's not pushy about it. She took us to the Caroni Swamp, the Asa Wright Centre, and the Pitch Lake. Her knowledge of Trinidad is excellent. You have full use of a well equipped kitchen and a good fridge. There's a good breakfast stall less than 100 metres from the house. We took earplugs in the light of the listing, but after the first night didn't use them and slept very well - though there is traffic noise, it did not trouble us. Very light sleepers might struggle. We are in our early 60s, not youngsters.”
A perfect place for eco-tourists and bird enthusiasts looking for a relaxing spot to explore the northern range on foot from. We are situated at the base of El Tucuche, fabled in Amerindian lore as a sacred mountain. The studio is large and comfortable with good views and perfectly located for guests seeking to explore the island. The apartment also has a PS4 and projector system with Netflix.
“Beautiful studio with thoughtful touches. I especially loved the super high ceiling as it makes the already large space feel even bigger. The studio comes with everything that you could possibly want and then some. The wifi is super fast, the outdoor gazebo is private and a great place to read or just relax with friends. The bed is extremely comfortable as well. Marcus and Chantal are super hosts. Super easy to communicate with and very thoughtful. I recently spent a month there and it was literally perfect.”
