I spent one month at Shirmas apartment as a clinical elective. The family is so welcoming that you feel being part of it even after a short time! I had an incredible good stay there. A lot of other students, especially medicin, stay at Shirmas house. The apartments are very big, so clean and in a really good condition. Couldn't be better. Shirma as a real host mother, everytime there when u got problems. I will come back soon

Shirma is a lovely host and really cares about her visitors. The apartments are very big and beautiful. You feel like home there. The kitchen is very well equipped and the garden is a nice place to hang out or to have dinner together with your friends outside. She also drives you to the supermarket if you need and once a week she made an incredible typically tobagonian dinner for us! I can really recommend to stay at her place. :)

Wanting to bridge the New Year in Tobago was on my bucketlist for 2015/2016. Plans were so last minute with reservations, it was very difficult to get affordable accommodation and which wasn't country side. Shrima's apartments were a pleasant surprise and definitely worth it checking out. She accepted my request of stay in a very timely manner and from my first day willing to assist and make me feel 'right at home'. She gave great advisory on the best and local traditions to partake in while on the island, and I could reach her at anytime needed. The apartments are very well kept and possess all the needs of a visitor. I must add again that the price point is excellent and the area it very pleasant. I would recommend this to anyone!! Great place to stay no matter the length. For next visit Shirma is on first on my contact list.

I stayed at Shirma's apartments for over a month, and I can honestly say it was well worth it! The facilities were abundant for my stay, in terms of the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Shirma was so generous in providing us with services such as free trips to the supermarket once a week to buy our groceries and she was always pleasant to talk to. If you want your best value-for-money stay in Tobago, I highly recommend staying here.
The location is also in a nice and quiet part of Scarborough, a short walk from the picturesque Bacolet Beach and a 30 minute walk from the main part of town.

After searching myTobago.com high and low I stumbled across Shirma's Apartments. I was planning an impromtu couples get away on a budget and Shirma's appeared to satisfy my criteria of being affordable and close to civilized amenities as banks, groceries etc. When we arrived at the port we did not have transportation and Shirma offered to pick us up at no additional cost. She was even so kind to take us to the nearest grocery for us to get a few items. Sherman's is tucked away in a residential area called Back let Crescent. Very cozy and safe. When I arrived at the apartment I was more than surprised. Despite all the glowing reviews from the medical electives, I was not prepared. The was beautiful and tastefully decorated with care. There was wicker furniture everywhere even in the bedroom. Without getting into too much detail the bedroom was designed with a couple and romance in mind. Huge king size bed,large cupboards with a vanity and bench, and washroom area.
Shirma looked out for us but allowed privacy. I will recommend her to anyone. Check for her in facebook under Shirma Lyons Wilson.
