Birdie's Nest - Reader Reports & Opinion

My husband and I spent 10 days at Birdies Nest and from the moment we met Prince we knew we made the right choice. We were about fours hours late getting to Tobago and Prince waited at the airport the whole time for us which was above and beyond. Even though it was late we were able to stop and get groceries. Birdies Nest was just what we had hoped it would be. We like to be able to experience the culture of the island we go to along with a few amenities (because we are spoiled Americans), Birdies Nest was just that. The apartment was very clean and well taken care of. The beach was by far one of the best on the island. Every morning we would take a walk as far as we could go. There is an area that you walk on the coral or bedrock but that was no problem you just take your time. We did not have any trouble with sand fleas and some days the sea was rough and swimming was bit of a challenge but for the most part you could swim right in front of Birdies Nest. Prince is very mature for his age and we had some great conversations. He was always concerned that we were doing fine. I had a bad sinus infection and he did what he could to get me help. If you are looking for a peaceful place away from all the resort crowd then Birdies Nest is for you.

Our trip to Tobago was put together at the last minute, about a 2 weeks prior to arriving. We were interested in "Birdies Nest" after reading about it on this site. After a quick series of E-mails to Prince to confirm availability, no deposit requested, we were set.
I will add that Prince was VERY HONEST & UPFRONT about the construction of the sea wall taking place at Birdies Nest. For us it didn't amount too much since we were out and about during the day while the work was being performed. After returning we would check the daily progress. It should be nice when finished!
As for the the accommodations, they were exactly as described on this site. When we travel we prefer to stay at small family owned houses/inns, versus the bigger chain hotels, so we were very happy with Birdies Nest, and all of Tobago as well. We actually extended our stay on Tobago with some help from Prince. We were to spend our last 3 days on Trinidad, but changed our plans to stay on Tobago. Prince did not have space for us, so while we changed our flights he found space for us at the other end of Black Rock at the Turtle View Inn.
All in all, A great vacation on a beautiful island with wonderful people!

In 2007 my husband and I were the first time at Birdies Nest with Canadian friends. This place is just wonderful for holidays. The apartments have all equipments we need. If we miss something, the host Prince gets it immediately for us. Prince and his mother Princess are very nice and friendly owners of this house. They really try to make us feel comfortable.
In 2008 we came again in February to Birdies Nest with our German friends. After we told them about Tobago with wonderful places, the quite area at Birdies Nest and the beach they really wanted to get there.
Although there was a big wall construction right in front of the house (which was very necessary to save the house because of big waves sometimes), we enjoyed our vacations. Prince told us, right away after the constructions are finished, he will prepare the garden very well. Even with a little fountain for the birds, so we can watch them all the time. So we decided: We come back in 2009 with our Canadian friends.
Dear Prince and dear Princess, we want to thank you again for your kindness and hospitality.

Prince and his mother were very welcoming and helpful.The accommodation is basic but spotlessly clean.The beach location is wonderful providing a true picture of Tobago unspoiled and uncommercialised.We would go back!

The Birdie's Nest guest resort is one place where true happiness and peace of mind is guaranteed. My experience there has taught me this..that there's nothing more relaxing, reviving and rejuvenating as being at one with nature. The resort overlooks the vast ocean which caresses the resort and everyone in it with cool sea breeze that has the power to heal and refresh. The sound of the crashing waves and chirping birds of every species flying over head adds to the entire ambience of the resort and creates a fantasy beyond comprehension.
While at the resort, the experience was truly a paradise away from home. The exotic interior design of the rooms and the fact that each room was sufficiently spacious made my stay even more welcoming. The rooms were all air conditioned and well furnished with modern appliance, comfortable beds and furniture. The beautiful bedroom lamps created at five-star hotel feeling that made the experiece even more thrilling! The pristine conditions of the entire indoors is truly a beauty to behold.
My four day stay at the guest house impacted my life so much that I was reluctant to leave. For years to come I will always remember Birdie's Nest and I would recommend it to anyone looking to enhance their experience in the beautiful isle of Tobago!
