Where to begin!!

I had the absolute pleasure of staying at Shirma's Apartments for the course of my 4 weeks undertaking my medical elective with a friend at Scarborough General Hospital.

From the get go, I knew we were going to be well looked after when Shirma and Clifford picked us up from the airport the day we arrived. Shirma and her family are an incredibly nice bunch, and we felt welcomed like family during our stay.

The apartment was clean and fully furnished, with everything you need to get by. Electricity, water, gas and wifi are all included.

The apartment is located in Bacolet, around 10-15 mins drive from the hospital and 5 min drive (30 min walk) from Scarborough. We were dropped off to the hospital every morning, and got picked up by a taxi at the end of the day (usually really afternoon). About 15 mins walk from the apartment is Bacolet Beach, where we spent many afternoons.

During our stay we were treated to Shirma's (superb!) cooking every Sunday, a weekly trip to the supermarket, and occasional trips for local foods ("doubles" which is a MUST TRY and roti).

If any questions or concerns, Shirma was always there to help without fail! She would go the extra mile to ensure everything worked out smoothly. For example, on the first day of electives, she guided us to hospital admin. When we wanted to hire a car for the weekend, she made the arrangements for us!

Staying at Shirma's was literally like staying at a second home, and really made my Tobago elective experience one I'll cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you so much Shirma & co., we'll miss you!

As a memeber of the Hospitality and Tourism Industry i must say i was very pleased with my stay here At Shirma's Apartment. It was indeed a home away from home I was greeted with warmest welcome from the lovely owner Mrs.Wislon, she treated myself and my family as if we were her own family.

She made sure that everything was well prepared for our arrival. Upon reaching there, we were given a well detailed tour of our apartments. The atmosphere was so tranquil that it did indeed gave a me a sense of relaxation.

I must say again it was the best feeling i ever had and will be returning next year.

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!
