Birdie's Nest - Reader Reports & Opinion
Alysia Alexander from Trinidad visited in September 2007 and awarded
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!

Accomadations at Birdie's Nest were excellent. There was nothing there we were wanting for as far as furnishing go. Everything you would need for a stay at a guest house was supplied. Everything worked, nothing was broken. The place was clean and comfortable, kinda of like your place on the beach or lake would be. We stayed at a downstairs apartment, but you could sit on the front porch in furnished lawn chairs and watch the ocean all day if you wanted to. The yard is small, but alive with native flora I suppose. The birds and butterflies seemed to like it. Our host Prince was very accomodating. He arranged everything from the air tickets, ground transportation, restuarant choices, and set us up with a tour of the coastine by boat complete with snorkeling and a barbeque. He also made sure we caught the return flight as we were maybe running a little late. We only spent two days and two nights there as I had to get back to my job in Trinidad, but that week-end was great. I had to get back to work to rest.LOL This place is not that big. If you're looking for the big resort with all the perks like swimming pool, casino, attached restuarant, wait staff all around, then this isn't it. If you want a nice place on the beach (about 50 yards away) that's quiet, comfortable and very affordable, that you can use as a base for touring the island, than this is the place. Besides, Birdie arranged for a lady to come in the morning to cook breakfast for us, whatever we wanted. You just don't get that kind of service anywhere. Like I said, our visit was short and sweet, but very nice, and I hope to do it again before I get out of Trinidad, and we highly recommend this place. One word of caution, reserve early, ask questions, - this place goes quick just by word of mouth.

We really enjoyed our time at Birdies Nest.
Prince and Princess Robinson are really good and kind people and can arrange any kind of activity that you want to experience, snorkeling, scuba diving, boat trips, bird watching etc.
Prince will take you on one of his tours around the island, which we found very entertaining. He has a vast knowledge of the history of Tobago and knows the best parts of the island to visit.
The accomodation was very clean and spacious and there is a wonderful lady who will come and cook for you if you want to sample some real Tobagan food.
The beach is practically deserted at all times except for a few local people who come to swim in the amazing natural pool that sits in front of a small reef.
The sunrises and sunsets can be spectacular.
All in all we give this holiday 10 out of 10.
Michael and Carol.

Thanks, once again, for a lovely time at Birdie's Nest. I stayed in the top apartment and enjoyed evenings on the newly built sundeck. Prince also did us a round the island trip, which was unmissable. Thanks, once again, for all your help! Sorry I won't be turtle-spotting next year, but, who knows, I might come for a holiday instead!!

We spent two weeks in May at Birdies Nest. We were in the upstairs apartment which has loads of space, is well equipped and has the most wonderful balcony overlooking the beach. Prince and his Mum, Princess, keep the apartments spotlessly clean and are happy to help whatever you ask. The night we arrived Prince took us to the supermarket at Carnbee to get some essentials and the next day he arranged for someone to collect us so we could go to get a rental car.
The apartments are in the perfect place for a peaceful holiday. If you want to eat out there are restaurents not too far away. The beach stretches for a couple of miles and is ideal for an early morning walk - we sometimes saw turtle tracks where they had been out of the water to lay eggs. The sea is probably better for fairly good swimmers but there is a pool which is almost enclosed by rocks and is ideal for lazing around in.
