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.

Another wonderful experience at Shirma's. It was our fifth visit and my only regret was not being able to stay longer.The best place to stay on the Island.The warmth of the family and the always impeccably clean apartment and surroundings have kept me coming again and again.I am already looking forward to visit again in 2016.

I stayed at Shrima's apartments for 4 weeks whilst in Tobago for my medical elective, and I had a wonderful time! Shirma is a fantastic host, she looked after us very well and was extremely polite and courteous. The rooms/facilities were clean, well maintained, and equipped with everything that we could possibly have needed. The area was also ideal, situated in a quiet back street with not much traffic, yet only 5 minutes walk from the local beach and a leisurely 30 minute walk from Scarborough, the capital of Tobago. The prices were extremely affordable, and the service we received was the best we experienced whilst in Tobago! I would highly recommend Shirma's apartments, you will not be disappointed!!

Two friends and I have stayed for three weeks at Shirma’s apartment while we were working as medical electives at the Scarborough General Hospital.
We absolutely loved our stay because Shirma and her great family are very welcoming and helpful at any time. They tried to involve us in their lives so we could get to know Tobago and its people even better. They were always happy to answer all our questions and tried their best to help when we had any problems. They offered us great tips for traveling and knew the reasonable and reasonably priced driver Jackson who would drive us anywhere, even to Charlotteville, which is quite far away from Bacolet.
The spacious apartment itself is located in a safe area not far from the capital city. Bacolet beach is reachable by foot as well as two little shops. The apartments are equipped with everything you could wish for, they even have their own washing machine which is important especially if you are planning on staying for a few weeks. The nicely kept garden has a wonderful gazebo in its centre, where we could enjoy our dinners in the evening.
All in all we would totally recommend staying at Shirma's!
