Birdie's Nest - Summary Description
3 Apartments. Reader Satisfaction Rating
Literally on the beach overlooking Black Rock's Courland Bay, Birdie's Nest is a comfortably furnished West Indian beach house. This property will provide a genuine 'true' Caribbean experience.
The main two-bedroom apartment occupies the entire upper floor of the house. The lower floor has recently been converted to provide two smaller one-bedroom apartments.
We had a look around Birdie's Nest during our 2001, while the downstairs apartments were being built. The American visitors resident in the main apartment were more than happy. Both they and I were superbly impressed by young Prince Robinson (just 18 years of age the week before) who effectively manages the property for his mother, the charmingly named Princess.
This property may lack the sophistication of some places, but if sophistication is what you are looking for, why go to Tobago? Those who wish to experience the 'true' beauty of the island - the warmth and hospitality of the local people - should look no further.

You'll have the Caribbean Sea, a mile long sweep of sandy beach with coconut palms and magnificent sunsets and Giant leatherback turtles .... and a quiet beach house in the West Indies for yourself and your family.
Birdie's Nest holiday apartments are a little gem tucked away on the beach at Great Courland Bay, at the end of a country lane.
It is quiet and secluded but not remote, far away enough that you hear just the sound of the birds and the ocean, yet near enough to enjoy the village steelband or a Carib beer at the local 'rum shop' - or go to Church on Sunday!
It is the real West Indies, this is Tobago - and you are at Birdie's Nest in Black Rock.
Here you have an unmatched opportunity to see Giant Leatherback Turtles which virtually come to your doorstep during the annual turtle nesting and hatching season (April - September). Great Courland Bay, Tobago, is one of a handful of beaches in the world where these endangered creatures return every year to lay their eggs. It is an unforgettable, prehistoric ritual, to see the turtle emerge from the sea, lay her cache of over 50 eggs then camouflage the spot before returning to the sea.
Even if you do not witness this incredible event, there will always be the pleasure of a golden sandy beach and sparkling blue waters of the Caribbean Sea lapping at your feet - this is the beautiful Great Courland Bay home of the Rex Turtle Beach Resort hotel and two of Tobago's popular little tourist villages - Black Rock and Plymouth with their local Creole restaurants and 'rum shops' where you can hear the sweet sounds of Katzenjammers steelband, calypso and reggae rhythms or meet some of the village folk and join in with fishermen who still cast their nets daily in the picturesque ritual called 'pulling the seine'.
Birdie's Nest beach house sits on the shoreline, facing the sea. It is perched on a small slope which provides a clear, cool, elevated view of the beach and the Caribbean sea.
It is a typical 2 storey West Indian house, now divided into three beach holiday apartments, at very AFFORDABLE RATES
Apartment 1 occupies the entire top floor. It is very roomy and comfortable and has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, ideal for couples or families with older children. The Apartment sleeps 5 persons.
Apartments 2 and 3 occupy the ground floor. There are two separate fully self-contained 1xbedroom apartments with connecting doors, suitable for families and friends. Each of these apartments sleeps up to 3 persons.
In the evening when the sun sets, it seems to set for you alone - creating magnificent memories of skies the colour of fire. Or other sights to rival the sunsets - the stunning brilliance of the tropical full moon in a starry Caribbean night and the sounds of nighttime... subdued chirps and whistles and myriad other calls while in the background waves break and recede on the shoreline. By day of course there are humming birds and other species feeding amidst mango, coconut and banana plants.
