We just had a great time at Shirmas appartments. We stayed for one month for an elective and lived in one of the appartments. Right from the begin Shirma was very helpful by giving as a cellphone with important contacts for our stay on Tobago as taxi drivers etc. During our stay, Shirma and her husband took us to the hospital in the morning and for shopping and also showed us the local food like doubles.

Very nice is also the area around and the location of the appartment, which was 5 mins away from scarborough. Also the beach was very close and we could walk there nearly everyday and enjoy the sea and the sun.

In the evenings we often had dinner outside, where shirmas has a little pavillion, which was very nice as well.

We would like to thank for everythingelse you did for us and can only recommend stayin in Shirmas appartements!

I was fortunate enough to stay at Shirma's Place for my elective and I had absolutely no regrets. It was by far my most comfortable stay in Tobago since visiting there. I stayed for an entire month and there was not a single day that I had any issues whatsoever. The place was very comfortable, very well furnished with everything you would need for a vacation. Ms Shirma was the most friendliest and most accommodating, going way above and beyond to ensure that you were comfortable during your stay. She really invests into making her customers as satisfied as possible and to be honest has standards way higher than many hotels in Tobago. I certainly would return there for future visits and recommend Shirma's Place to anyone.

5 of us stayed at Shirma's for a couple of weeks during our Medical Elective and had an amazing time! Shirma and her husband Clifford made us feel extremely welcome from the start when they greeted us from the airport with a big smile. This set the tone for the rest of the trip where they were always on hand to answer any queries and help us arrange any excursions. Shirma regularly cooked delicious meals for us and took us grocery shopping, all free of charge! Even when we left to stay elsewhere she still offered to help us with anything. We just want to say a massive thank you to Shirma and her family, we only wish we could have stayed longer and hope that Gary (their son) finishes cleaning his cars soon!

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!
