Staying at Shirma`s really felt like bein home! I could not think of a better host than Shirma. I stayed with her and her lovely family for almost 6 weeks while I was doin my Medical Elective at the hospital in Scarborough.
The apartment offers everything you need and everything you could wish for. It`s very clean, very well equipped, super comfy and very spacious! Plus as soon as u step outside ur door u get to sit in Shirma`s lovely garden which is the prettiest one you will find on Tobago ;)
I can highly recommend staying with Shirma especially to all the Medical students – she will drive you to the hospital every morning and will take you food shopping once a week, which is very handy!! Most of the Med students stay in Bacolet – so everyone is very close by. We always spent our free afternoons at the beach which is only like 7 min walking distance away.
So all in all ....Thank you Shirma for being such a caring host – you really made my stay a memorable one and if I ever come to Tobago again - there is only one place where I would stay ... and that`s with you!

It had an awesome time at shirma's! I came to tobago for a medical elective and Shirma was a gat host. She took us(there were more electives) to the hospital every morning, and to a big supermarket in town once or twice a week. Shima and her family were very friendly and helpful, they got information as bus and ferry time for us when we needed them, they organised tickets for us and really cared about giving us a great time on the island.
The appartments are huge and furnished lovely, everything is well-maintained and very clean. The appartment is located in bacolet,wheremost of the medical electives are staying. There one beach app. 500 meter away and anotherone in 8 min walking distance.
I would highly recommend this place, especially to medical electives. Thank you Shirma for the awesome time!!!

Another great vacation at Shirma's. It was my birthday weekend and I wanted be some where I enjoyed. Beautiful Tobago was my choice. I wanted to stay a place where all the amenities are in good condition and the place is spotlessly clean and comfortable.So Shirma's was the place to be and I was by no means disappointed. Another beautiful weekend indeed. A big thank you for superb service and hospitality!

I stayed at Shirma's for 7 weeks last January and all I have to say is especially when you are a medical elective shirma'S is the best place to stay.
The Apartments are huge and well equiped e.g. own washing maschine, own kitchen, living room, TV, aircondition (much better than my own place), and if you miss something you can always go and ask Shirma or any other family member.
So and here we come to the best part.
Shirma herself. She's the most friendly and welcoming person I've ever met.
She picked me up at the airport made sure I felt at home, gave a lot of advice and fresh grown mangos from her own garden (yummy)
She organizes a ride to the hospital in the morning and a pick-up-service for the afternoon (greetings to Donny) and goes for groceries with you twice a week.
All in all Shirma's is a home away from home and Shirma takes care of you like your own mother, so nothing to worry about.
P.S I'm so sorry it took me nearly a year to write you a report, I hope you will let me stay in your apartment again when I'm in Tobago again.

We had a wonderful stay at Shirma's Apt. The atmosphere was peaceful, quiet and very relaxing. I have now called it "My home away from home." If the Creator makes it possible, I shall return.
Thanks Shirma's , for your warm hospitality.
