Birdie's Nest - Reader Reports & Opinion

I loved my stay at Birdies Nest. The rooms were beautifully clean and everything was there that was needed. Prince looked after my needs with great kindness. I much preferred staying there and feeling part of the village of Black Rock,seeing how local people lived, chatting to people,etc., to staying in a tourist hotel. I would thoroughly recommend it.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Birdie's Nest very much. Prince is a gracious host and does his best to accom-
modate all one's needs. He took us sightseeing one day to show us one of the waterfalls that is less accessible, and we made several other stops as well. He will fill you in on places to shop, to eat, and to snorkel. He also has a friend who keeps track of the turtles coming in to nest who will pass along info to Prince and guests. And be sure to ask him about coconut guy! If you're traveling to Tobago I have no hesitation at all in recommending Birdie's Nest as a good place to stay on a good beach.

I'm going to make this short, since so very many people before me have written eloquently about Birdie's Nest, and Prince. Yup, it's all true. All completely on the mark. I've lived and traveled all over the globe, and I "specialize" in beachfront property, in fact I own a house on the beach in Hatteras, NC. Birdie's Nest absolutely ranks as one of the best places I've ever stayed.
In the vacation home world, the trend in the last 10 years has been to supersize everything, and I feel this is a huge mistake. Jacuzzis in every bathroom, gourmet kitchens, other fancy stuff that for me, just makes me unable to relax and just BE at a house.
Don't be mistaken, Birdie's Nest takes care of all the essentials and more - large bedrooms, well stocked kitchens, comfortable beds, AC, etc, etc without succumbing to the notion that a great house needs tons of luxury bs.
The true charm of Birdie's Nest is it's location - down a backstreet, through a neighborhood, and directly on the beach - and it's owners, Prince and Princess. When you combine these two essential factors, you have the makings of a very memorable visit.
All eight of us who stayed at Birdie's Nest over New Years would like to thank Prince and Princess for such a great time. You're welcome in our house anytime.

We stayed at Birdie's nest for the first week of November 2009. We chose to stay here partially because of the excellent reviews. Having stayed there, I have to say that Prince lived up to our expectations, even though as a result of the reviews, they were high. He was excellent. The place was immaculate, clean, and well equipped.
I'm taking a bit of a lazy way out here, but the review written by Chris Sowerbutts from UK in March 2009 very closely reflects our experience.
Prince took the time to help us get settled (took us to a bank to draw local currency, grocery shopping (he bought us "doubles" while we were shopping - they were delicious), took us to buy a snorkel, and showed us around a bit for orientation. He also spent some time in the evenings helping us to plan our week, and was a mine of useful information. We rented a car from him. He took us on a tour - I could go on and on. He was an absolute pleasure, and it's apparent that he loves Tobago and he does want folks that stay with him to have a good experience overall. He does what he can to enable that.
The bottom line is that we would go back and stay at Birdie's Nest in a heart beat.

This was my first experience to a caribbean, as was the same for others in our party, and I love Tobago. Prince's place was so homey that I felt like I was just around the block from home. (OK minus all the lush greenery and lizards). I found the Birdies Nest online and I read reviews such as this and I was sold. Birdies Nest is clean and simple. Prince is a gem, I feel that if I went back to Tobago he would remember me and my family with no problems. Thank you Prince,for doing what you do so well,and with your heart.
If your looking for a place to relax, swim and bath in the sun, Birdies Nest was perfect. I'd go back in a heartbeat...
