We had a very good stay in the apartment, which is well equipped (kitchen).
The bedroom has a fan and air condition, the bed is comfortable. The beach is about 150 m away. Unfortunately, there are very many mosquitoes on the terrace.
Thanks to Matthias and Jema for their good advices (food, trips, attractions).

War sehr schön, ruhiges sauberes Apartment mit gemütlicher Terrasse, nur zu empfehlen. Zwar ohne TV, aber den brauchten wir auch nicht. Strand gut zu Fuß erreichbar und mit dem Taxi kommt easy über die ganze Insel.

Jemas´s Guesthouse offers very comfortable accommodation and a well equipped kitchen. The veranda is a great place to relax - it is surrounded by a very well-kept garden. The beach and shops are in walking distance and the hosts are most friendly and helpful.

My stay at Jemas Guesthouse in Tobago was a great introduction to the wonderful island of Tobago. I stayed in the the cottage which included bedroom (very comfortable bed!) kitchen and living room, bathroom and a great veranda perfect for a quiet sundowner while admiring the lush vegetation full of the sounds of exotic birds. The beach is a two-minute walk away and it includes a great rock pool perfect for swimming in a protected area.
Everyone at Jemas was very welcoming and helpful.
A great base for relaxing, swimming and for further exploration of the many attractions of Tobago.

Jemas Guesthouse is a little gem in Black Rock, where we spent two absolutely relaxing weeks. Spacious, nicely furnished apartments in a lush jungle garden, and a comfy bed made us sleep like babies. We got even used to the rooster hooting in the wee hours.
The land lords Jema and her husband Matthias couldn't be more forthcoming with help, information and suggestions, and sometimes a lift to the next village. Unfortunately, there are no more restaurants open in Black Rock, also the one bar opens only when the owner feels like. Which seems rarely the case...
Thanks to the supermarket in the village and the well equipped kitchen at Jemas we didn't starve over the holidays.
Turtle beach is very close to Jemas Guesthouse. But with high waves rolling in, only experienced swimmers should swim there. Nevertheless, a short walk farther away is the more shallow and beautiful Stonehaven beach, where you can get a cold beer at the Buccaneer Bar in the afternoon. Next to it are the German managed Extra Divers offering perfect dive trips to the under water wonders of Tobago.
