Just go to 'You tube' then 'Birdies Nest Tobago', or 'my space' 'Birdies Nest Tobago'.
Watch our holiday video (which has remained at the top for 2 years) and get the feel of the place.
Prince and Princess Robinson are the BEST hosts EVER!

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.

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.

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!!

Birdie's Nest was spectacular! Our stay began with Prince picking us up at the airport. He was a wonderful host with the best personality. Prince took us to the grocery upon our arrival. I stayed at Birdie's Nest with my mom on the top floor. Prince made us feel completely at home and safe. The apartment was immaculate with an amazing view of the ocean. The new deck on the back is the perfect place to watch the beautiful sunsets.
The water is Crystal clear and even has a pool of water beyond some breaker rocks that is safe for kids to swim in during high tide. Birdie's Nest is a short walk from Turtle Beach. We went on a walk down the beach one night from 10-11pm and saw 4 turtles come up to lay their eggs. One was directly outside Birdie's Nest!
Prince offers a tour of the island that is not to be missed. He took us all around the island to see the many beaches, on a boat ride to Little Tobago and snorkeling. We even stopped for lunch and Prince helped us get a taste of the local cuisine. Prince is a great tour guide.
If you're going to Tobago, don't miss Birdie's Nest! Thanks Prince for a wonderful vacation.
