Birdie’s Nest, Tobago
“Prince”, our friendly and helpful host aims to offer his guests “perfection”, and in the Tobago setting, he is there. This report confirms all the positives in the other “My Tobago” reports, but adds a final thought as a challenge to the danger of complacency!
We have just come to the end of 2 blissfully relaxed and comfortable weeks, in which we self catered and chose not to use car hire, so we challenged the facilities and the locale of Black Rock to their fullest extent.
The 100% positives include the infinity pool with its silky water, the endless supply of piping hot water, the comfortable bed, and the peace of the complex and its surrounds overlooking a deserted beach. The feeders in the garden brought many of Tobago’s birds to the doorstep. The apartment was immaculately clean and well provided, including TV and radio with BBC channels.
Prince provides his own map to Black Rock which locates shops and places to eat and drink which we found indispensable during our first days. We enjoyed one meal out at Fishpot. The basic food stuffs are to be had in Black Rock, but we found it necessary to take the bus to Scarborough for extra “variety”.
We also took the bus to Charlottesville which is a long and winding drive, and did not seem to offer any more attractive beaches or views than the one at the bottom of the garden, or in Stonehaven Bay.
So, to close. Our final thought.....the kitchen needs a lime crusher for our Rum Punches! Prince has promised this will be supplied.

Schon das zweite Mal liessen wir uns in Biedie's nest verwÃ¶hnen. Eigentlich gibt es gar nicht viel zu sagen, als einfach nur traumhaft: Ein echter Geheimtipp in Tobago. Prince hat uns jeden Wunsch von den Augen abgelesen. Er betreibt dieses Haus zusammen mit seiner Mamma mit viel Herzblut. Nur eines mÃ¶chte ich noch sagen: Tobago, wir werden wieder kommen und natÃ¼rlich.... in Bierdie's Nest!!!!

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!

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.

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.
