About The Owners of The Leatherback Lodge

 

Neville is happiest when he's around nature… whether it be the crystal clear waters of the hundreds of rivers we can enjoy in Trinidad, the warm ocean waters of our shorelines or enjoying the wondrous beauty and serenity of a hike through the many forests. Having spent most of his childhood days in and around the western isles of Trinidad where he fished, swam and boated while on holidays at his family’s weekend home on Monos Island.  He has finally found his piece of paradise at The Leatherback Lodge.  His wealth of knowledge has awarded him with a number of stories and experiences to tell. He is Trinidadian born but of German descent. Neville or Nevie as his friends would call him, is described by many as one of the most fun-loving persons with a witty sense of humor......   

 

Nella is an animal conservationist at heart.  She would save scraps from leftover meals and feed stray dogs wherever she can find one. She spent most of her career life in the Marketing field but resigned from her last job as a New Car Sales Executive to start a business of her own.  She too has found the love of her life at The Lodge, which gives her the opportunity to wake up to the sound and sights of a variety of exotic birds and sometimes get a glimpse Trinidad’s shy wildlife which includes deer, iguanas, manicou (opossum)  and agouti to name a few.  Her best pastime however, is cooking where she enjoys creating some of the most mouth-watering local and international cuisine guaranteed to delight any taste bud.
