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!

I stayed at Shirma's in August/September together with my girlfriend for a 4 week elective term at Scarborough General and we had a great time! Shirma and her whole family were absolutely amazing and almost felt like family!
The apartment is located in Bacolet just outside Scarborough (20min walk) and the closest beach is the Bacolet Beach right around the corner, which is small but very nice and most of the time you will have it to yourselves. The hospital is also just a 15min drive away.
We stayed in the apartment with two bedrooms just because the other two apartments were already full. We were very satisfied! The bedrooms are both equipped with ACs, which was badly needed with those outside temperatures. Both have queensize beds and more than enough storage room for your clothes. The kitchen had everything you need: stove, toaster, waterheater and an enormous fridge! There is also a washing room, which goes off of the bedroom in the back with a washing machine and space to hang your clothes to dry (you can also do that in the garden).
The garden is very beautiful with lots of flowers and birds, even colibris and a very nice pavilion where we had our breakfast, some diners and the occasional rum&coke at night;)
As an elective at the hospital you cannot get a better deal than to stay at Shirma's. She takes you to the hospital in the mornings and to do the weekly shopping on mondays. Also Shirma cooked for us a few times, which was always really tasty!! The whole Wilson family is eager to help you in whichever way they can and are happy to give you advise on Tobagos sights, restaurants, beaches, car rentals etc.
We really enjoyed our stay and can definetly recommend it to anyone who plans to come to Tobago. Enjoy!
