First Capital Apartments offered me a enjoyable vacation apartment. the apartment has all amenities, is comfortable and clean. Love the complementary gift basket, airport pickup and drop off. This is the best place for persons who are on a budget but want quality. I would recommend it without a doubt.

carnival accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Was late on booking Trinidad carnival accimidation, but luckily came across this gem of an apartment for me and couple friends. Each room with it's own entrance and are quiet sizeable. Quaintly located in St Joseph; therefore was relatively close to most events. Management are also awesome.. from Sarah providing timely assistance when needed to peter with the airport collection and drop offs.
