Birdie's Nest - Reader Reports & Opinion
Caron Gibson from U.K. visited in May 2006 and awarded
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....

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 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 !

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.
