About Green Space

This vacation townhouse is located in a peaceful neighbourhood that is 25 minutes from Maracas Bay beach and 5 minutes from the Santa Cruz Green Market. The Green Market is one of the earliest and most famous eco markets in Trinidad. In addition to local produce and food, one can also find local jewelry, art, crafts, hand crafted soaps and seasonal live music. The nearby Chocolate Bar café offers single estate chocolate bars and desserts and fragrant creole cocoa. The Roti Café is also within close proximity and is famed for their wide range of fillings (including lobster) and was featured in Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre Foods Delicious Destinations Trinidad edition television show. For the nature lovers, the Colibri Creative Centre of Light is an 8-minute drive away where hikes and tours are offered for a nominal fee.

The rooms feature original paintings by local artists that include depictions of the Winston Nanan Caroni Bird Sanctuary, the Waterloo Temple in the Sea, the Chaguaramas Bamboo Cathedral and the Asa Wright Nature Centre. In addition, a piece of historical significance is displayed in the living room: a fragment of the original plaster from the Red House dating back to the early 1900s that was acquired from the Trinidad and Tobago National Trust.

Green Space is ideal for a couple or a family of four wishing to share a quiet retreat. The living room includes a reading nook with books and board games including Scrabble.

GreenSpace offers the best of both worlds: Every amenity & convenience easily found within the unbelievably beautiful Santa Cruz Valley. I was able to watch my favourite shows on the big-screen TV, comfortably ensconced in the world’s most comfortable sofa while being serenaded by bird song and fresh cool breezes. I left the windows open the whole time and the screened windows allowed for a constant flow of a delicious breeze.

The host was wonderful. All questions I had were covered in a detailed yet comprehensive house manual. Jo-Ann was informative and kind when I communicated with her, yet also completely unobtrusive. I loved the fully equipped kitchen. The Master Suite was like any in a high-end hotel – queen-sized bed, walk-in closet & a huge bathroom.

It even had a balcony with a beautiful view. I especially loved that I was literally half-an-hour from gorgeous Maracas Bay and minutes away from the Green Market, the Roti Café and the Chocolate bar. This is a gem of a space with a wonderful host. I will be back!

American in Trinidad here! I stayed here with my boyfriend and best friend this past week and cannot say enough good things about our host Jo-Ann or her lovely home. Check-in was easy, the house is spacious (way bigger than expected!) and clean, the surrounding area is lovely, and Jo-Ann is an excellent communicator and overall host. She has gone above and beyond to ensure our stay here has been great.

I've stayed in a few AirBnB's in Trinidad during my two months here, and this is definitely the nicest place I have stayed in. We love the layout of the house; the dining room table and the living room are perfect for multiple people to have family meals and hang out together. There are also puzzles and games here which we ended up playing. It's also very convenient that we got our own parking spot with an automatic gate key - we felt safe.

The surrounding area is beautiful and closer to Maracas Bay than Port of Spain, so if you are considering where to stay while visiting Trinidad this is definitely a good option because you're halfway between the beach and city (like 20-30 min drive to either).

The local grocery store also had everything we needed. Primax Labs is also a 3 minute drive away from the house, which is very convenient for getting travel COVID tests.

I will definitely rent this AirBnB again when I come back to Trinidad in a few months. Thanks, Jo-Ann!

We had a very pleasant and inviting stay. The area is very quiet and peaceful and the apartment is wonderful. Everything that we needed and more. Great flexibility with check-in and check-out. We were very comfortable and we had lots of space. Would definitely book here again.

Nestled in the heart of the Santa Cruz valley is the tranquil and beautiful Green Space Air BnB. The first thing our family noticed was how spotlessly clean and spacious Green Space was! The pillows and bedding were hypoallergenic which kept us all allergy free. Many gorgeous and original paintings hung on the walls and were a perfect complement to the decor in each room. Our two teenagers each had a room to themselves which they really appreciated. The master suite was airy and comfortable with a queen-sized bed, walk-in closet and a large bathroom with a vanity. The brand-new air-conditioning units kept each room blissfully cool. We also had family movie night where we used the popcorn maker which looked like it was from a movie theater! We were also minutes away from the grocery store, Maracas Bay and the Chocolate Bar. Finally, we were able to use the washer and dryer which was so great! So many elements at Green Space added up to setting the stage for one of the best holidays our family has had.
