Birdie's Nest - Reader Reports & Opinion
Danny And Jo Miners from U.K. visited in April 2006 and awarded
Just returned from a two week stay at Birdies Nest. We stayed in the front ground floor apartment which was clean and tidy. The bed was so comfortable and the kitchen adequate for all our needs. Prince has just bought a bar-b-cue so that will be even better, especially for the fresh fish bought at Mount Irvine Beach. Prince and his mum were so good as hosts of this property and made us feel very welcome. The beach is a stone's throw away from the front door and if you time it right, as we did, you get to see the turtles coming up the beach to lay their eggs. There was clean linen and towels every 4 days and Prince and his mum pop down on a regular basis to ensure that everything is fine. The accommodation is away from the hustle and bustle of Black Rock but without you feeling that you are isolated. We will definitely be back next year and hope the weather is as good as it was this time around.

We spent wonderful three weeks at the Birdie´s Nest.
We stayed at apartment no. 3. which for two people was big enough, clean enough, calm enough, with really cooling AC.
We very appreciated the service from Prince and Princess, they came often to ask whether everything is O.K., they gave us a lot of useful tips for our trips and nigh amusement in the neighbourhood.
We regretted only that the sea was rough almost every day (not too save for swimming, but beautiful for the sunsets and walks) and that the entry to the beach directly from the Birdie´s Nest was not very easy.
We had a car for 2 weeks (very recommended) and sometimes we went by bus to the beach or to Scarborough ( if you are not in a hurry - no timetables - this is very safe and cheap way how to explore some parts of the island).
We would definitely recommend this place for those that are looking for a quiet and privacy, good service and personal approach, no crowds of turists, for those that are looking for the local taste of life.
Tobago is a very beautiful island, with friendly people and someday we will come back again ther and Birdie´s Nest.

If you want somewhere to stay in Tobago that is comfortable, unspoilt and friendly with wonderful views and caring host and hostess who live just a couple of houses away then Birdies Nest is for you. We have just returned from a great 4 week break at this comfortable apt. It really is right on the beach so to sit there in an evening eating dinner on the balcony and listening to the sea is heaven. Prince and Princess were always full of ideas for us and visted regularly to make sure we were OK and enjoying life on their lovely island.
We had a car for the 4 weeks and would recommend it - we were able to do what we wanted and when we wanted. We explored the whole area and found some wonderful beaches, restaurants and everywhere friendly people to help us on our way if necessary.
Tobago and Birdies Nest make for a great relaxing holiday in the sun
Can't thank the Robinsons enough.

Review: An Excellent Place To Stay
I can only agree with all other reviews of Birdies Nest.
It's a great place to stay and you cant wish for better hosts than Prince and his mother to take care of you. They came regulary to clean and check if there's anything we would need, Prince drove us to the Penny Savers on our first evening so we could buy some groceries
Me and my familly stayed at the top floor apartment for the first 10 days in july and had a great time.
The rooms are clean and large with plenty of space. Both bedrooms had silent AC, but we didnt use them during the night, we kept them on for the day and turned it off at night and the rooms stayed at a nice temparature all night. The living room had plenty of fans and a TV that my son could see some cartoons in the evenings (and for me to see some of the World cup final) The large veranda was perfect to eat our breakfasts and dinners, we had most of our meals at "home" with the view of the ocean.
With just 50 m to the ocean we had the sound of the ocean to sleep to each night and we had the luck of seeing some baby-turtles crawl done to the water.
The only negative with the stay was the water got deep quickly and has a lot of stones/gravel at the water edges. The beach it self is nice so its a pity, on the other side my son used the opportunity to snorkel for stones
