Marlene from U.S.A. visited in August 2016 and awarded
My family and I stayed there for 3 nights and 4 days. We had the best time my daughter loved the pool. Mr Goddard is a wonderful man we will definitely be going back.

We have stayed here three years in a row for a month or more. There is no where else we could imagine staying in Tobago. Each year there is something new to enjoy. This year we could hear the waves pounding against the shore, a mesmerizing sound, and the living room was updated in cheerful colors.
We come back in part, because of the Goddard family. They are very special people and have created a home with many separate spots for enjoyment, and beautiful plantings which attract many varieties of birds. The pool area is enchanting day and night.
Hopefully we can return next year, even if just for a week or two.
Keshala Mahabir from Trinidad visited in May 2014 and awarded
My famoly family and I stayed and the villa for 2 nights in may 2014. I must say the owners ensured that we were warmly welcomed even though they were not present themselvea.
The atmosphere was beautiful and clean and homely. I would highly recommend the stay at birdsong
Dijkstra-Carrillo Family from U.K. visited in July 2011 and awarded
Our 12 year old son insists on giving this accommodation a 5 star rating and we agree completely with him. It was much more than we could have imagined. Mt Irvine is a beautiful, quiet and scenic part of Tobago. The villa has a pool set within a beautifully landscaped garden. This is where our children spent quite a lot of time. We had to get them out of the water to have breakfast and to go to bed at night!
The rooms are all very spacious, beautifully decorated and air conditioned. The two living room areas on different sides of the house ensures you are never too hot. This is also good for families with different age groups so that everyone has their space (we had three different generations with us). We also spent a lot of time on the very large balcony which offers fantastic views over the trees to the sea. It is a wonderful place to have meals and listen to the birds. The kitchen is better equipped than that in my own home!
Joe and Grace are also fantastic hosts. You wish that you could adopt them to be your family so you could visit them often. They are a fountain of knowledge on a range of topics. Make sure you ask Joe about his Olympics experience – my family was most impressed!
Terry & Donna McElhone from Canada visited in February 2010 and awarded
We and our family and friends stayed with Joe and Grace at
their # bedroom villa and had a wonderful vacation.
The children couldn't leave the pool unless eating or going to one of the nearby beaches.
Joe led us to the airport to get family as our car wouldn't carry all of the luggage and passengers, and when we were leaving they got up at 6am and Joe drove to the airport again.
We cannot say enough about their hospitality and accommodations.
Their phone number will be the first one to call should we have the opportunity to return to their beautiful island again.
Thank you Joe and Grace.
