Birdies Nest Guest House   

Claude Soulodre

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.

Birdies Nest Review   03 Apr 2006

Mandy H from UK

My boyfriend and I recently returned from our first trip to Tobago, and stayed for two weeks at Birdies Nest (16th-30th March 2006).

We stayed in apartment 3 for the first ten days of our stay as we couldn't get apartment 2 (you can see which is which from the photo on the rates page of Birdies nest website). The facilities were perfect - air con, sun loungers, and a fantastic view!

For the last period of our stay we moved to apartment 2. There are fantastic views from the kitchen, and bedroom - and you can have a sundowner on your patio with a great view of the sunset. Since returning home, doing the dishes without looking out onto the Caribbean sea just isn't the same!

Prince and his mum could not have been more helpful, and from what Prince says, he is going to be doing some work to Birdies Nest in the near future to improve it further. The plans sound great, with more landscaping etc, and improvements to the apartments.

Amusingly, on our last night, Prince asked us whether we had any suggestions to improve the accomodation - our only suggestions were to have a couple more wine glasses in the apartments, and a few more sunloungers - Prince promised us he'd get more wine glasses, and already plans to buy more loungers!! If that's all we could think of then it must have been good!

Birdies is a perfect place for those who want clean, good value apartments in a perfect location - we saw three leatherback turtles during our stay!

Good luck to Prince for the future of his business.

JUST RETURNED FROM 2 LOVELY WEEKS STAYING AT BIRDIE'S NEST.

WE HAD THE TOP APARTMENT WHICH HAD A PERFECT SEA VIEW-COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER ONE!

IT HAS AN EXCELLENT LOCATION RIGHT ON TURTLE BEACH. AND IT IS ALSO CLOSE TO SUPERMARKETS.

IT WAS CLEAN, SPACIOUS AND COMFORTABLE WITH EXCELLENT AIR CONDITIONING.

PRINCE AND HIS MUM WERE VERY NICE AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND A STAY HERE.

Review: An Excellent Place To Stay   

O Carlman

I can only agree with all other reviews of Birdies Nest.

It's a great place to stay and you cant wish for better hosts than Prince and his mother to take care of you. They came regulary to clean and check if there's anything we would need, Prince drove us to the Penny Savers on our first evening so we could buy some groceries

Me and my familly stayed at the top floor apartment for the first 10 days in july and had a great time.

The rooms are clean and large with plenty of space. Both bedrooms had silent AC, but we didnt use them during the night, we kept them on for the day and turned it off at night and the rooms stayed at a nice temparature all night. The living room had plenty of fans and a TV that my son could see some cartoons in the evenings (and for me to see some of the World cup final) The large veranda was perfect to eat our breakfasts and dinners, we had most of our meals at "home" with the view of the ocean.

With just 50 m to the ocean we had the sound of the ocean to sleep to each night and we had the luck of seeing some baby-turtles crawl done to the water.

The only negative with the stay was the water got deep quickly and has a lot of stones/gravel at the water edges. The beach it self is nice so its a pity, on the other side my son used the opportunity to snorkel for stones :)
