We are 3 medical students from London and decied to stay at Shirma's / Shircliff's apartment based on previous students' reviews. I can honestly say it was the right decision! From the moment we arrived in Tobago after a long day travelling, Shirma and her husband Clifford were so welcoming. Throughout the month we stayed with them they gave us invaluable advice, support, lifts to the hospital every morning, and even some delicious traditional Tobagan food! The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and very spacious. The outside area was great to socialise with the other students staying there. If there was only one thing that could be improved, it would be the WIFI connection. It is very close to Scarborough (we even walked there a couple of times) and even closer to the beautiful Bacolet beach. We would all definitely recommend staying with Shirma!

I couldn't recommend Shirma's apartments more! Myself and my friend Jessica stayed here during our medical elective and it
Felt like a home from home. Shirma and her husband Clifford own a beautiful home which they have opened up to guests. The rooms are fantastic with good bathrooms and kitchens to cook in. They kindly
Drop the students off at the hospital each morning on their way to
Work. But more than the amenities Shirma goes the extra mile
To make your stay so warm and wonderful. Her home cooking is wonderful, her desire to show us around and enjoy some
Local cuisine and her wonderful personality and smile really make this place the place to be in Tobago!

I stayed in one of Shirma's apartments for 6 weeks during my medical elective and I cannot recommend it enough. I felt very welcome from the start and was reassured, as a single traveller, to know that Shirma or her family would help me with any problems I had. Shirma is a great cook and treated me to some amazing local foods - her 'bake N saltfish' was a personal favourite! The apartment was very clean and spacious and the garden is beautifully tended. She also drove me to the supermarket once a week and to the hospital each morning. If I come to Tobago again, I will definitely be staying with Shirma!

Two friends of mine and I stayed for about 5 weeks at Shirmas while doing our medical elective in Tobago. It was a perfect stay. We stayed in a two bedroom apt ensuite with a fully equipped kitchen and a place to do laundry. Shirma and her husband Cliff are great hosts. It couldn't have been better. Once a week Shirma cooked amazing lunch and on Mondays she goes grocery shopping with everbody who needs to go. She also organises accompdation at her neighbors place (Marjorie) if she is already full like it happend to us in the first 10 days. That was really nice, too. I really would recommend Shirmas place as it's the best place to go.
