Nous ne savions pas du tout sur quoi nous allions tomber et nous avons été agréablement surpris. nous étions dans la chambre 3 c'est a dire la location comprenant une séjour et une chambre pour trois personnes. La location était très propre , le gérant très sympa, il nous a montré comment accéder à la plage la plus proche, nous a offert des spécialités locales , a emmené mon mari pour lui montrer les diverses choses a voir et à faire, et les petits magasins pour se nourrir . Il nous a même prêté une planche de bodyboard, un gps et nous a sorti un plan en français. Un gérant ADORABLE . La piscine était très sympa et très agréable à tous moments de la journée , l'appartement très grand et fonctionnel , et l'environnement très calme . La plage en face de la location n'est pas praticable car il y a des gros blocs noir (mais pour se balader très bien) mais il y en a une à 5 min à pied. Une très belle plage se trouve non loin de là (turtle beach), et surtout l'accès à la location est très facile depuis l'aéroport (que de la grosse route).( Par contre sans gps compliqué a trouver après a cause des dernières petites rues). Le matin des poules venaient nous rendre visite au petit déjeuner au grand bonheur de notre petit garçon. Une location à recommander .Nous sommes allés nous balader un peu partout sur l'île, a voir : nylon pool, pigeon point (géniallissime), store bay, castara, englishman's bay, et pirate bay (très beau aussi). L'alimentation reste très standard sur l'île, un supermarché se trouve sur la route pour aller à la location (de l'aéroport) ainsi qu'un distributeur. Pour tout ce qui est souvenir, aller à store bay (juste a coté de l'aéroport), présence de nombreux petits stands mais aussi à pigeon point. Pour faire du bateau à fond de verre à Nylon poool, se rendre a store bay , présence de nombreuses personnes proposant tout un tas d'activités nautiques à pigeon point. 4 jours formidable sur Tobago

My husband and I stayed at Birdie’s Nest for the first two weeks of January 2015. There are many things to rave about - the first being the location. Birdie’s Nest is situated right on a beautiful stretch of beach. Every night we went to sleep feeling as if we were being rocked by the sea. I am a strong swimmer, so I was able to swim easily right in front of the property, but if you want a calmer water, just walk 10 minutes down the beach to Turtle Bay and the water is calm and clear. There is also a sweet pool on the property overlooking the beach which is fun to hang out in – chlorine and chemical free.
We stayed in Apt. 2, which suited us well. Although next time we come, I would like to stay in the top floor apartment just to get the best views of the ocean. Apt 2 was clean and had everything we needed including a comfortable porch for eating and relaxing.
Prince was a top-notch host, caring very much about meeting our needs. He checked in with us daily, gave us long list of island activities and showed us how to get around. We felt very taken care of. Not to mention Prince’s mother, Princess, who was also welcoming and kind. The two of them work hard to keep the property spotless and well maintained.
Since we’ve been back to Boston, we’ve spread the news about Birdie’s Nest. I hope it doesn’t get so booked up that we can’t get a reservation in the future – but I would not be surprised. We look forward to returning to Birdies Nest next year.

Me and my wife stayed in appartment 2, for a week in Birdie´s nest, from 17th till 26th of january 2015. It was the second time that we stayed at Prince´s place.
The facilities are perfect, the location is direkt on turtle beach, where you can have a nice walk to plymouth.
We never have had a clean place like that, travelling the carrebeen for more than 20 years. Although the place is in the village black rock, it´s save and quiet
The pool area, with nice sunbeads, and the pool itself is lovely.
The supermarket is quiet close in walking distance.
We are planning the next vacation on christmas 2015
at Birdie´s nest.

We spent a week at Birdie's Nest with our four year old daughter and couldn't have had a better time. We like to travel independently, cook our own meals, buy produce at the local store, and stay in communities that feel 'local'--and yet we like some of the amenities available at a resort; a great beach, a well-maintained pool, a safe and secure dwelling, and responsive hosts committed to customer service. All of this is available at Birdie's Nest. The suite was simple but well-equipped and very clean. We made frequent use of the gas grill on site, and spent long days going between the pool and beach.
Prince is gentle, kind and a joy to talk to. He has a wealth of worldly experience and great sense of pride in his business and family history. He manages the place professionally and attends to the fine details necessary to keep an independently owned guesthouse in good order year-round. He responded to our questions and went above and beyond what we thought was necessary. He can help you to order in meals; hire a driver; and help arrange/suggest sight-seeing around the island.
You can stay here without a vehicle, but should know that there are not a lot of restaurant/bar options in the immediate vicinity. Grafton Beach and Pleasant Prospect are within walking distance and have good food/drink options, but are 15 and 25 minutes to walk to.
The neighbourhood feels safe and walking is relatively comfortable (safe, and not busy, but no sidewalks). The locals are very friendly and will know you are one of Prince's guests.
We will definitely visit again!

I give Birdies nest 5/5 if I could I would give it more. As a solo traveller I was not without some aprehensions, but these worries evaporated on arrival. The welcome from Prince and Princess, the accommodation, the location, the help and advice,all PERFECT.The rooms are spotless, linen also. The pool and view sublime.Prince organised collection at the airport and a supermarket trip, as I was staying for a week. Gave me a map of the immediate vacinity to get my bearings, plus any help I needed to get the most out of my time in Tobago.It is well located for delightful walks, restaurants, beaches and small provision shops. This proved to be, thenks to Birdies nest, the best holiday ever. The only down side, is having to leave and go home!I recommend Birdies nest for families, couples and solo travellers alike. Would I go back? YES PLEASE...
