Upon arrival Prince picked my husband and I up at the airport and took us to the grocery store before we arrived at the apartment. Upon arrival at the apartment we found a clean beautiful site to enjoy our stay for 5 days. We stayed in apartment #1 which had a great view of an unspoiled beach. The site was perfect for a relaxing time. On day two of our stay Prince took us on an all day island tour which included a glass bottom boat ride and snorking at Angel Reef. We have never snorkled before and what a great experiance it was, after the snorkeling we had lunch and then Prince took us to the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. We then hiked up to the top or Argyle Falls where we stook under the falls for a natural massage. The day ended with us back at the apartment where I cooked dinner and enjoyed the sunset. Our stay was so great we will be coming back next year and bringing the rest of the family. Thanks Prince for everything.

Our stay at Birdies Nest was wonderful. Prince picked us up at the airport and stopped at the grocery. We stayed in apartment #1 which was great. The view from the upstairs is spectacular!! It was very comfortable with everything we needed.
Prince took us on an all day island tour. We visited many beaches, took a boat to Little Tobago where we saw many sea birds nesting, snorkeled, visited the incredible Argyle Falls and stopped for some great local cuisine. Prince was a great tour guide and I would really recommend this tour.
The beach was by far the prettiest I have ever seen. There is a small reef to snorkle right out your door. And a much larger incredible reef just a few hundred feet down the beach which I snorkeled with a resident of Tobago. We even saw four turtles on the beach one night!!
Prince is a perfect host. He checked on us many times to see if we needed anything.
This was one of the best vacations I have had and I was sad when it was time to leave. Thank your Prince for your hospitality and kindness.

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.

This is an excellent beach front hideaway from the hustle and bustle of the Town "as if Tobago is a buzzy place". this schenic hideout is stragecially located close to a naturally forming oceanic pool which provides a wonderful night spot for swimming.
this I must say has been the best Guest house I have stayed at and my Fiance loves ambiance of the rooms.
Thanks for the hospatility and the wonderful weekend.

My wife and I and our two children spent a memorable week at Birdie's Nest in April 2007. We took a one-bed apartment downstairs as the wonderful two-bed apartment upstairs had been booked. The accommodation was pleasant and comfortable - air condition was a delightful benefit, given the temperature at this time of year. The house is in an idyllic beach front location - it was great to hear the waves crashing and be able to stroll on the beach so close to the house. The sea at Black Rock can be wild and is risky to swim in. However, a rock formation has created a pool which provides a safe area for children to play in and to explore the rock pools for small fish and crabs.
The beach was a short walk from Turtle Beach, and we spent a couple of nights doing turtle watches to help the local environmentalist in his work to protect leatherbacks from being killed by poachers. Princess and Prince Robinson were very helpful. I was astounded that Prince was only 22 yet displayed such good customer care, busines skills, and hospitality. Any issue he knew of he went out of his way to provide the solution, such as providing me with a mobile phone until I sorted my phone out. On my son's birthday, Prince insisted on providing ice cream - being a bank holiday most shops were closed and he drove nearly across the island just to get the ice cream. He brought over his young cousins to join my son for his birthday cake and celebration. It is difficult to think what Prince would not do to make guests happy.
Birdie's Nest is an excellent choice for a beach front holiday location away from the main tourist traps.
