Birdie's Nest - Reader Reports & Opinion
Moritz from Germany visited in January 2011 and awarded
To make a super positive stay short: Birdies Nest is situated perfectly, right at the beach. We stayed in the ground floor appartment, facing the sea. Appartment was spacious and perfectly clean. All rooms are equiped with aircondition and the kitchen gave us all the opportunities to comfortably cook while staying at birdies nest. Being situated in Black Rock, it is a perfect place to start your excursions. Also being a bit away from the more touristic area in the south around the airport makes totally sense.
Last but not least: We have travelled a lot all over the world, but Prince, who is running the place, is the perfect host and always there to help with anything that you might need!
So from our side it's all thumbs up and highly recommended.

We stayed at Birdie's Nest a year ago, and after that trip were determined to return. As it turned out, thankfully one year later we made it, and we certainly hope to be there yet again in the future. I think it's the best unkept secret around. Prince gets glowing reviews, and rightfully so.
If you want a quiet place, right on the beach, with plenty of birdlife, an outside shower, intenet availability, clean with all the comforts of home, walking distance from other beaches with good snorkelling, walking distance to stores etc. This place has it all.
We love it there.
You can read our previous review of Birdie's Nest from last year for more info. Our experience this time was similar in many ways, and I think the other reviews that I have read do accurately describe this gem.
Thanks for having us Prince.

We, 5 Estonians, stayed at Birdies Nest right before Christmas 2010.
The whole experience was much more enjoyable we'd imagined.
A solid, large, well-equipped house right on a postcard-view beach. Much to see and do in close distance - beautiful beaches for bathing and snorkelling, rainforest, waterfalls, variety of places to dine etc.
And above all - Prince himself. In his friendly and open manner he offered good advice (the first to mention - without his advert we wouldn't see the lunar eclipse! And parang in village street on Christmas Day's early morning!) and pracitcal help in getting the most of our stay.
We are extremely grateful and stay dreaming to visit Birdies Nest again one day.

A wonderful, colourful, friendly Tobagan holiday.
Everything went extremely well from being picked up on time at the airport. We had a an excellent week in one of the smaller apartments, decided not to move on but took the larger upstairs apartment for another week. The apartments are well furnished and well equipped. Prince makes sure everywhere is spotless. We rented a car from Prince but the bus is a short walk away on the main road. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Lots of colourful birds to watch on the balconies. Birdies Nest is immediately on a long beach, Turtle Beach. We regularly walked or drove to another long beach on the other side of Black Rock fort for a swim and lunch at the beach bar. Prince and his family made it a really enjoyable Tobagan experience. We hope to be back soon.

The reviews here are right on. Great place and Prince is a wonderfull host.
Not a high end hotel and we did not want that. Wonderfull view and relaxing vacation. We would stay here again and again. Close to the dive group we used- undersea Tobago another great lead from MyTobago.
We got Princes car as our rental and that also saved us money. Over all the place is just what you read here and can expect to find when you get there.
