Birdie's Nest - Reader Reports & Opinion

I just spent 3nights at Birdie's with my wife in apt#2. We needed a get away, we've been tired and stressed from our regular hectic schedule.
I must say that Birdie's is a fantastic place. We arrived almost 10pm we came from Trinidad via the fast ferry, it left Trinidad late so it docked in Tobago late. We got to birdie's immediately walked by the pool and Mr Prince came to meet us, showed us in the apt. He already had the a/c and lights on. The Apt was sparkling clean, by far the cleanest apt I have ever stayed in Tobago, including when there was Hilton at Plantations.
All in all, we had a great time, great accommodation and we were able to relax. We were sad to leave but we've already planning our return. See you again Birdie!

Birdie's Nest was a beautiful place with great views! It felt like a five star hotel with the pool right at the beach. The place is very clean and had everything we needed. The owner was helpful and really friendly. I would recommend staying here.

We stay at Birdie's Nest every year and every time it gets better. The owner Prince Robinson is a remarkable host and goes out of his way to make his guests feel comfortable. It is worth the price too. Truly an excellent getaway spot.

I felt compelled to write my first review here as Birdie's Nest and Prince deserve it.
Is there a Rating of 6???
Prince Robinson is the PERFECT host! He is cheerful, knowledgeable, witty, funny and goes out of his way to make your stay perfect. He took my boyfriend and I in search of a motorbike that ate up 2 hours of his busy time, yet he never fussed. He also got the BBQ to work for us! (thank you so much for this Prince!) He takes such pride of his place that you can't help but share this with him as well. Prince is a true gentleman - humble, respectful, and just a wonderful person.
The Place we called HOME
Apartment was SPOTLESS! I personally witnessed Prince and his mother Princess clean another apartment - it was then I understood their dedication and pride they have for their high standards. Apartment is spacious, all the amenities are there (sunblock, mosquito repellent), kitchen had everything we needed (minus the groceries of course). I could go on and on, but Prince has really thought this through. My favorite place was the patio where we could watch the sunset. We even ate our meals there!
The surrounding area was perfect - Birdie's Nest is perfectly located - very central in my opinion, and lots of places to get food. The lady that sells fish (Prince will tell you) is a must-try. She's closed on Mondays. The area is also very safe - it's mostly family members that were our neighbors.
We've definitely made new friends here, and we will definitely return. Prince, Princess, Birdie's Nest... a must-experience in Tobago.

Für unseren länger geplanten 3-wöchigen Entspannungs- und Erlebnisurlaub auf Tobago wollten wir eine Unterkunft, die eine Lage am Meer ohne völlige Abgeschiedenheit bietet. Wir wählten Birdies Nest in Black Rock wegen der wunderbaren Strandlage und der guten Kritiken aus. Wir können alle positiven Kommentare nur bekräftigen. Das Haus ist vorzüglich gelegen und das von uns genutzte Apartment 1 hat eine beeindruckende Aussicht. Die Ausstattung des Apartments ist komfortabel und geräumig. Garten und der sehr schöne Pool werden vom Besitzer Prince Robinson fürsorglich gepflegt und auch das Apartment erfährt eine regelmäßige Auffrischung. Für uns besonders hilfreich waren die vielen Hinweise und Empfehlungen, die uns Prince bereitwillig gab. Selbst die Organisation einer kleinen Geburtstagsfeier ist ihm sehr gut gelungen.
Einfache Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Imbiss-Restaurants können im Ort zu Fuß erreicht werden. Für umfangreicheres Einkaufen im Zentrum oder zum Sightseeing haben wir bei Prince mehrfach ein Auto gemietet. Die Insel selbst ist ideal für Individualreisende. Sie bietet viel Natur (z.B. einsame Traumbuchten), aber keinen ausgeprägten Massentourismus. Wir haben uns in Birdies Nest, sowie auf ganz Tobago, immer sicher gefühlt und kommen sehr gern wieder an diesen schönen Ort zurück.
