This well-appointed simple guesthouse is part of the historic Mt. St. Benedict Monastery Estate. It is beautifully positioned at an elevation of 800 feet at the edge of the northern range, with panoramic views across the plains of Caroni. It is surrounded by acres of land and numerous trails to explore, although we would recommend that you do this with a guide. Yet this peaceful setting is just minutes from the airport and the capital. The 18 lovely rooms, some of which have private bathrooms and air conditioning, are furnished with antiques and the guesthouse is well managed by the charming owners. Delicious Caribbean meals are served either in the colonial dining room or on the terrace and the teas are legendary.
