Birdie's Nest - Reader Reports & Opinion

Birdies Nest, Black Rock

Hi Steve

Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to you for all the effort you have put into this website.

Having read it like mad and printed out loads from it before our trip to Tobago (returning only yesterday) we cannot tell you how useful and informative it was.

We stayed at Birdies Nest, and although it was fairly basic, it had everything we needed, and was very clean. It was in a truly fab position, right on the beach, but you really did need a car to get around as the nearest restaurant was a good 20 minutes walk away, although the nearest bar was a mere 10min!

Prince who runs it with his mum was very sweet.

We rarely saw anyone on the beach in front of the house, and the only downside to it was that the sea was quite rough at this part and children certainly would not be able to swim in it. Probably only a strong swimmer would be OK. You could walk up the beach to the Rex Turtle hotel (approx 10-15 min walk) were it was much calmer and swimmer friendly.

We ate out every night and found our 3 BEST BEST BEST restaurants to be Indigo, La Terrazza and The Seahorse Inn.

All served excellent food, and had great friendly staff. probably our most favourite was Indigo overall, due to its food, and ambiance etc.

La Terrazza was also fab, but we found when busy, service and food was very slow in coming (although worth the wait) as only the Chefs wife was serving etc. The Seahorse Inn had the best location (very romantic for those with that inkling) and great food.

We also ate at Me-shells whihc was good: Pantinos, whihc was better than Me-shells but not as good as the other 3 above, but we had a lovely friendly waitress.

The Black Rock cafe was OK.

Miss Esme down at Store bay serves THE BEST beef roti - competely and utterly recommend it - yum yum!

We did some diving which was also very good, with R&Sea, nice helpful staff and owners, would recommond them to anyone.

We were just so impressed with Tobago, so much to (or not if the case may be!) for everyone, such lovely friendly laid back people (even the beach sellers dont hassle you!) We will definately be returning, and like you, want to share it with everyone but also dont want to see it spoilt.......

So thanks again for such a great useful informative website

Dear Michelle and Shaun

I was very glad to read something about Birdies Nest. We are 4 adults (family related) thinking of staying at Birdies Nest. Can you answer a few questions: Was it or is comfortable for 4 adults? DO you do any snorkeling from the beach there? Was is rough swimming the entire time you were there? Also, would you stay there again? Also am thinking of Bijou des Caraibes. Have you seen it? Can you recommend any other small place away from hustle and bustle on a beach and very clean?

Any info would be greatly appreciated



Report: Birdie's Nest

Spent two post-carnival days at Birdie's Nest and I highly recommend the establishment. Prince Robinson, the owner/manager was charming. And his Auntie was a joy to speak with. Birdie's Nest is just a few steps away from the shore line in Black Rock. It is beautifully landscaped and very clean. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful.

The property has 3 apartments, the large 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms can easily sleep 6 or more. And has wonderful beamed ceilings and ceiling fans. The 2 bottom apartments are air conditioned and have one bedroom each. All apartments have immaculate kitchens and bathrooms.

I intend to stay there again next year as my Carnival rest stop and recovery center.

We spent two weeks in febr 2005 in TOBAGO. We found a very good accomodation in the apt at groud floor of Prince home. The apt was just renewed (Prince put the last lamp just when we arrived !) and we are fully satisfied of this accomation. the apt is big as can easily accomdate 6 people ( 3 double bedrooms) has a large fully equipped kitchen and wide living room plus outdoor patio to enjoy sunset drinking a beer! Prince is very effcient,professional,kind person as, even thogh we ket tellinghim that we did not need anything else, he provided us with new things each single day of our vacation( fans . tv, kitchen pottery ,chair etc).PRINCE HOME IS LOCATED JUST FEW METERS BACK OF BIRDIES NEST , which we have also visted last day and we were positively impressed also by birdies nest residence which is litteraly on the unspoilt beach.

we have a warm and positive souvenir of tobago and Prince and we hope that Prince will remember the first host of this apt ! :D

Birdies Nest Guest House

My wife and I stayed in Birdies Nest Guest House in Black Rock during our week in Tobago in January 2006. The accomodation was clean and functional and the location could not be beat. It is located right on the beach and it was lovely to sit out in front of the house in the evening to watch the sunset over the sea.

We were very well received by the proprieters, Prince and his mother, Princess. Although we had only arranged to rent one of the main floor apartments, Prince insisted on giving us access to both suites since the other one was vacant at that time. He explained that in this way, we could enjoy the view from one suite and also benefit from the larger bed in the other. (I am quite tall.)

This accomodation experience was far different from the typical "resort' experience we have had on previous vacations and due to the location of Birdies Nest, we both enjoyed being able to view day to day life in Tobago.

I would recommend Birdies Nest to anyone looking for fairly priced, clean and well-situated self-catering accomodation in Tobago.
