Hyacinth from Canada visited in September 2017 and awarded  Three out of Five

I recommend..If you are looking for a place to sleep at nights (with working Air Conditioner), Good water pressure.

Basic accommodation. Clean-Safe place to stay. Friendly staff and owner. Ask for what you want please don't wait to be asked. Place is right off the main road so you will hear soca and other music (yeah) especially Thur-Sat nights). Bring earplugs if you are sensitive or looking for absolute quiet-not happening!

A short stroll to get local breakfasts in the morning, lunch and a variety of vendors by the side of the road and restaurants for dinner...Safe to go out after dark, use regular caution. I traveled alone and had no security issues in this area.

At nights or should I say when the sun goes down, there are a variety of street vendors who have food for sale, gyros chicken is $35 TTD, shrimp about $45 TTD-pretty good.

The lovely Jamaican man sells bbq chicken about $45TTD, yummy and friendly, clean service.

Didnt go to the Roti shop.

The place right next to the pharmacy (Mediterranean food) is always busy $35-$40 TTD for chicken with fries.Clean, good service.

Crusty Crab (say hi to the lady serving)friendly clean affordable breakfast (local) Fried bake/coconut bake served with your choices local plaintain, some egg, some smoke herring and salt fish (cod fish) etc. Nice. $28 TTD +. If you are going to the beach in the morning, I suggest you ORDER and pay for your breakfast, she will keep it for you while you take a morning dip. Breakfast here starts at like 730-maybe 11 am. Late sleepers dont have much choice.

Jimmy MiniStore across from Jeffrey is good. Expect to pay a bit more due to convenience. See below for items you can throw in your checked luggage to use (small olive oil, dish soap in a travel container, a bar of soap, a can opener-you will thank me later, etc.)

check out the giftshop BAMBU..nice owner, affordable items, Tobago style friendliness, good local art, items, loved this store.

Go up to Trims (towards Store Bay). Trims is past store bay on the left side, like you are walking to the Airport. See the Fresh fruit and Veg lady (very affordable items). Trims is across from her little store (items there to cook if u choose).

Keep walking to the airport (there is a almost not seen bakery ( a little unit) fresh bread, currants rolls etc. )

Women traveling alone, I suggest you use local taxi that have people in it and have your money available to give the driver. If in doubt, don't get in anyone car. Make sure u know how much the ride is going to cost you. From this area to Scarborough is like $8 TTD. People told me u have to wait hours for a bus. Bring a hat,a sweat rag and serious sun block. Store Bay has lockers u can rent $5ttd/day so you can put your beach bag or whatever. Dont flash your money.

Say good morning and good afternoon as is local customs when entering an establishment/taxi/ordering food etc. Laundry near Jeffreys is $60 ttd for a load (they wash, dry and fold)=great service, no concerns.

HANS TOURS (owner is Hans)Best service/$100TTD for outing to Nylon Pool/Buccoo Reef (bring your snorkel/mouthpiece/pool sandals/SUNBLOCK and TSHIRT for sun protection).He even picked me up. Great safe friendly service.

TIPS:

Bring a hair dryer

Inquire on day 1 for the WIFI password

Ask how to use the Television and access Cable/Shows etc.

Bring from home essentials like spices (salt, pepper), sponge for dishes/dish soap),a BOTTLE OPENER, a S hook to hang your towel over the bathroom door. YOUR OWN TOWELS.

If you don't like the smell of gas cutting and cars idling outside your room if you are on the first floor (get room upstairs).

***What I recommend based on personal experience, bring a memory foam pad.

*The self-contain apartment typically have two large beds. If you have back problems or heavy set, recommend bringing memory foam pad (see Amazon or search the web for ideas to use vacuum bag to carry in your luggage). Hotels have vacuums so you can re shrink it prior to leaving with no drama. The beds are hard, I used the pillows to sleep on which was very uncomfortable!

Overall a wonderful vacation, I completely recommend Jeffreys Next time I will be more prepared as I am traveling next with my grand children. Safe, clean place. Use normal caution with sharing your location (where u r staying) unless that is your choice).For women (sadly others before have set some examples so "some" youth/men hustling at the beach-may approach you to see if you want "company" Just a simple good morning/afternoon and no thank you with minimal attidude is advised. Not every woman (young,mature)traveling along is recreating 'How Stella Got Her Groove" Seriously. Have a fabulous vacation. You will love Store Bay and ask Mr. Jeffrey how to get to the Swallows (close little sweet piece of water) about 8 minutes Tobago style walking..chilled, sweaty and enjoyable). Bon Voyage!!!!!! :)

Denise Dummett from Trinidad visited in May 2017 and awarded  Two out of Five

The room that was promised by the owner Jeffrey Barton was now promised to another party mid-way in a three day stay and I was told by his sister/manager that I would have to move after one night. Mr Barton was out of the country. My full payment had not been checked or recorded though paid in April and his sis-ter was unaware of it. It was done electronically. The cleanliness of the room I staying in finally was not up to standard. Being left alone seemed to be a problem and his sister seemed to be unusually inquisitive about my life and movements on a daily basis. Hints did not work. Would I stay there again? No. It is cheap and convenient for Pigeon Point, airport etc but not worth the hassle. There are other choices.

Sally from Trinidad visited in May 2016 and awarded  Four out of Five

I Stayed at Jeffrey's with my Church Group. Loved that it was close to a lot of food places and within walking distance to the beach. The rooms were really comfortable and clean, I felt right at home, Genevieve was such a lady and really friendly too.The only problem I had was with the air conditioning unit which made a lot of noise and didn't cool the place much, we had to use a fan with it, this only happened in our room though the rest of rooms were fine. Had a wonderful experience and will be visiting again!!!!

Elycia Price from Trinidad visited in August 2013 and awarded  Five out of Five

I stayed at Jeffrey's House from August 7th to 10 2013, Mr Jeffrey is one of the nicest person you will meet. The rooms were clean and he made the whole atmosphere great with his pleasant outgoing personality. Everything is at walking distance there is a choice of three beaches, it's rights on Milford road, which is one of the main roads, so everything was within reach. There were three beds, the room air condition and cable tv, a swing for the children it was really good and I would definitely recommend anyone to stay there. I will certainly be back!!

thanks Mr. Jeffrey Barton, for your hospitality and making our trip to Tobago enjoyable.

Janella Tull from Trinidad visited in October 2012 and awarded  Five out of Five

My husband and i stayed at jefferys for our first year anniversary on the 29th of october ,a little mixed up with the arrival date that cause us not to stay there the night we arrived .We ended up staying higher up the road by the owner's cousin which was not so bad only that we were not close to the food and lime light . Then maybe a guest before us off set the ac so it was not that cold but the owners sister moved us to another room .If it was not for jefferys sister am telling you i would not normally be so calm and understanding but she is a darling sweet little soul always making sure we were alright. Mama because of you i will come back to jefferys keep up the great job you are doing god blessings and thank you .we stayed at room 13 then in room 2 on october 27 to the 31 .
