Shirma's Apartment - Reader Reports & Opinion
Samantha Armorgan from Trinidad visited in July 2013 and awarded
On July 6th I made it over to Tobago for a wedding in Bacolet. It was my first time to Tobago on my own. Staying at Shirma's Apt. felt like I came to an aunt's house. This family runned place truly incorporates and has mastered comradery, hospitality and general concern for tenants.
I will always recommend this location whenever anyone asks me about accommodation in Tobago. Ms. Shirma and her family were successful in creating a place one can call a "Home away from home". My stay in Tobago was an experience that has been embedded within my mind and shall be remembered for years to come. I thank Ms. Shirma and her family for being a significant part of this memory.
Already planning my next trip with friends... see you all soon!
To those reading this, you will not regret this choice!

We stayed in Shirma's apartments for 5 weeks and had a great time whilst doing our medical elective at the hospital in Scarborough.
We stayed in one of the 3 apartments available. The whole place was of a high standard and very clean and tidy and felt very safe.
It had one very spacious bedroom with a lovely, super comfy 6ft bed, tonnes of storage, bathroom with a spacious shower (Hot&cold water), separate WC, laundry room - with washing machine and hanging area, and air conditioning.
The living area is also very spacious with a well equipt kitchen, dining table and seating area with tv. Wireless internet included and accessible in the living area.
The nearest beach is 100-150m away - a lovely large rugged beach on the atlantic side. Great for walks and enjoying the sun and hardly another person there, lots of waves so good surf but need to be a confident swimmer. Another great beach just 10 mins away has lovely swimming as it's a bit more sheltered.
Alongside the great apartment Shirma was a fantastic host, always friendly welcoming. Shirma gave us a lift to the hospital every day on her way to work which was fantastic! We met the whole family and they were all lovely, Shirma's husband Clifford took us on a great island day tour - very professional service.
Overall a great stay, highly recommended especially if staying long-term.

My friends and i stayed at this guesthouse for the Easter weekend this year and the year before. Accommodations were clean,comfortable, peaceful and pleasant on the eyes. The host Ms. Shirma was warm, friendly and sensitive to our needs.
Hot and cold water, internet, cable tv, wash area and a kitchen with full amenities were available. It was a home away from home and the place was reasonably priced.
I will definitely recommend staying here it more than worth it.
The guesthouse is located Bacolet with a 10-15 min walk from the beach, five min drive from the Dwight Yorke Stadium and Health Centre.
