Birdie's Nest - Reader Reports & Opinion

Me and my fiancť stayed here for just 6 nights (I night lost due to the flight being delayed) but itís one of the best holidays Iíve had. We were picked up from the airport on time, and Prince (our host) took us shopping on the way home. Sadly the shops were closed as we arrived on a Sunday evening but Prince had already brought us the essentials which were: fruit, bread, butter, cheese and water.
The apartment we stayed in (number 2 I think), although the smallest, was huge! We had AC in the bedroom and some funky lamps that came on when you touched them!!
The biggest bonus for me was the tour that Prince gave us. He took us around the whole island explaining many features, monuments and why the beaches had their names. He also arranged a snorkel dive off the coast of Speyside where we got to see a large reef and many fish. We were asked if there was anything else we wanted to see and we also ended up going to the Botanical Gardens which were completely covered in Christmas lights! All in all great value for money and very interesting.
The holiday as a whole was perfect, the empty beach on our doorstep and the hot sunny weather made staying at the house easy to do. The water is warm and refreshing and the rocks nearby are great to explore.
This is a perfect place to get away, with Prince being the friendliest guy I know and all the help he gave made it one to remember.

I have vacationed at Birdie's nest since it came into creation, and i must say it is even more beautiful every year. When i read the reviews i thought to myself imust add something.
As mentioned above prince was there at the port every time i have stayed in tobago and i choose to stay nowhere else. It is private secure and comfortable.
Its a home away from home, with a beach suitable for long walks and the water is always wonderful. the sunset is impeccable and so is the sunrise if you get up early enough to see it.
I always recommend this guesthouse to anyone who wants to stay in tobago, it is affordable and perfect for a getaway. If you think you will get lost in tobago have no fear sigla is there to help you find all the interesting spots and locations in tobago and he is just a phone call away.
Turtles, the beach, sunsets and sunrise, snorkelling and even fishing is a fun way to spend a vacation. also if you don't feel like cooking fast food is alwats available, just a 15 minute drive if so much. There are also restaurants available close by, if i continue i will never finish just take my advice Birdie's Nest is the place to be.

I have just stayed in Birdie's Nest for two weeks and had a lovely time. The location is fantastic - right on the beach, and perfect for turtle watching at night. The bedrooms were lovely and had COLD air conditioning, essential after the heat of the day. The bathrooms had hot and cold running water, huge showers, and the living area was comfortable. Bedlinen was changed every five nights, which meant that the beds were always comfortable to get into.
The owner, Prince Robinson, and his mother could not have been nicer and looked after us well.
Thank you very much for a fantastic time.

This was our 2nd trip to Tobago and as before, we got exactly what we wanted out of it. We only spent 1 week at the Birdie's nest but once we got there, we did not want to come home.
The top floor accomodation was lovely and spacious. Good kitchen, american fridge, lots of fans, nice size bedrooms (there are 2)with quiet air conditioning,comfortable furniture,And very clean.
Prince Robinson and his lovely mom made us feel very welcome and he has a good sense of humour :) It was so nice waking up to peace and quiet and the sound of the ocean (o ye! And the parrot next door that thinks its a rooster..really!)
Black Rock is the perfect location to get to either side of the island, there is a store on every corner for fresh local veg & fruit amongst other things, and Penny Savers is within driving distance for more familiar food.
But anyway back to Birdie's nest... We are booked for 2 weeks next year and we are there already :)If you are looking for peace and quiet, have some time to wile away the hours doing nothing but reading, swimming, cocktails, sun.... well you get the picture....

We stayed at Birdies Nest, after deciding betwenn 3 apartments in 3 different areas.
Firstly we made the right area choice, as it was central to everything, and we hired a vehicle.
The apartment was absolutely great and we feel soo luck to have found it through this website.
We were expecting something basic, whoch would not of been a problem, but this was well equipped and spacious, and right on the beach. it was amazing, and very good value for money.
They picked us up at the airport and arranged car hire straight away as we arrived over the easter period. Everyone was really helpful and very gernerous. It is privately owned by a guy called prince, who was a local so he know where to go and where to shop.
I would be careful if you go when there is a public holiday, as the supermarkets shut down, whoch was not a problem, but they switch everything off, so if you are in need of fresh milk or diary products, all these were off, so all the fresh milk etc went sour, but they were still selling this. Stock up and put in the freezer until you need it. This apartment supplied a fridge freezer, so it was ok !
If we went again we would definitely stay there again, as it was clean and friendly.
It was great !
