If you are looking for accommodation in Tobago look no further than Birdies Nest.
We have recently returned from a fantastic 3 week holiday there.
Birdies Nest is in a perfect location, a few steps away from the quiet end of Great Courland beach.
Within walking distance is Michaels bar where you can relax with a Carib and 'lime' with the locals. There are also a couple of restaurants within walking distance - the Seahorse, which serves international cuisine in a beautiful garden setting and also the Black Rock Cafe which serves local Caribbean food (fish, chicken or pork).
A short car ride away are several other restaurants - Shirvan Watermill, MeShell's, Melange to name just a few - all serving excellent food.
Birdies Nest is owned and run by Prince and his mum Princess. They were very good hosts, always asking if we needed anything. Prince also, on several occaisions drove us to the supermarket and was always offering to take us places.
Every day Prince came down to water his garden, which he loved, and we chatted to him while we enjoyed a drink relaxing in the last of the days sunshine. Prince is a nice guy, with a good sense of humour.
We can recommend Birdies Nest and will certainly stay there again.
Oh! beware of the Aloe Vera man, he pops up unannounced wanting to rub Aloe Vera onto you - it is excellent for mosquito bites, but it stains your clothes.

We fully agree with the other review further down.
Now it is more than one month ago that we spent a few gorgeous days in Black Rock. We still remember the cordial welcome of our host Prince at the port of Scarborough where he picked us up.
We had never a guesthouse so close to the beach before. Just a
few steps to the south end of the Great Courland Bay.
The rooms were nice and very tidy and the mattresses are not too soft. So we slept very well. A super market is in walking distance and the kitchen is well equiped.
In the evening we received a lot of good advises what we should not miss on the island.
So if you want to relax and to see beautiful sun sets in the evening, Birdies Nest is one of the best places to stay in Tobago.

We have stayed at Birdie's Nest during the beginning of our holidays in February 2007 and it was a really nice start! The rooms are very convenient, we had a kitchen and really enough space for our luggage and the very best is the location directly at the sea! In the morning you have a beautiful look from you window to the deep blue sea and in the evening you can sit on the veranda and watch the pelikans on their way back to where they sleep. The beach is huge and sometimes we were really alone there.
Our host Prince Robinson was very friendly and gave us some good advice where to go and what to visit. The village is nice, there are some shops and the steel drum factory of "Katzenjammer".
The most impressive experience we made at the end of the beach (near Plymouth) where fishermen were pulling out the net together with tourists from the nearby hotel in the early evening. It was a good catch and they threw a large and a small manta ray and some blowfish back to the sea. Dozens of pelikans and frigate birds were diving into the water and catching fish out of the fishermen's net - smashing!
We will not give the maximum 5 stars because: Unfortunately there are some construction works going on in the neighbourhood so that a walk on the beach is disturbed by concrete blocks lying in the sea. Directly at Birdie's Nest there is a kind of a sand heap you have to climb when coming back from the beach. But generelly it is a really marvellous place to be! To go to Fort Bennet and watch the sunset with a cool Carib in your hand - that's Caribbean feeling!
