Shirma really looked after us well during our trip! We stayed with her for one month during a medical elective at Scarborough General Hospital and she made sure we were safe and well looked after throughout our whole trip. Shirma and her family are so much fun and and her family’s generosity has been a tribute to what people in tobago are like!

The apartments are spacious, comfortable and have all the utilities you need to ensure a great stay. There’s a washing machine, air conditioning, reliable WiFi, a comfortable king sized bed and a fully equipped kitchen. She always made herself available to go to for help or advice, and if we needed anything Shirma was always quick to help.

The local area in Bacolet is quiet and the property seems really safe, there’s a small shop about 2-3 minute walk away in case you need something in an emergency and Bacolet beach and the beach club is about 10 minutes walk away. We travelled everywhere via taxis.

Overall, Shirma and her family really made our trip something special and something to remember.

My daughter and I stayed for the Independence weekend. Although I we announced our arrival on the same day, Shirma was a breath of fresh air in dealing with the situation. Her calm, pleasant demeanour was "on point".

Upon our arrival Shirma greeted us like family and we were treated as such, i.e. family that you truly care for.

We stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment and compliments did not stop flowing from my daughter and I about how beautiful the apartment and surroundings were. Everywhere was spotless.

It is the place to relax and regroup from the hectic lifestyles we have.

Shirma's Apartments are situated in Bacolet, I am certain Shirma or her husband can organise transportation to and from the apartment.

I have already told my friends both home and abroad of the wonderful weekend we had.

I will definitely be going again. Shirma has already been saved in my contacts.

Check out Shirma's it is truly a beautiful place.

We stayed at Shirma's Apartment for three weeks during our medical elective at the Scarborough General Hospital. From the very beginning we felt welcome and comfortable. Shirma even cooked for us on our first day!

The apartment is very spacious and clean and has everything that you need. The kitchen is very well equipped and if you're still missing something Shirma will take care of it.

Every morning Clifford, Shirma's husband, gave us a lift to the hospital and once a week they took us to a big supermarket and to a vegetable store.

This is a great place not only for medical students but also for tourists who want to see Tobago. Bacolet is a very nice place to stay, safe and calm, from where you could plan your trips around the island. Also there are two beautiful beaches in walking distance.

Shirma and her family are so helpful in any situation and we appreciate their great hospitality! We can absolutely recommend this place!

Daniel Romeu from U.K. visited in July 2017 and awarded  Five out of Five

I stayed at Shirma's Apartment for four weeks as part of my medical elective at Scarborough General Hospital.

The apartment itself was spacious, well organised, clean and fully equipped. The bed was comfortable, and air conditioning and fans made my stay very comfortable.

The area itself is quiet and very safe. There was a quiet beach which was 10 minutes away by foot, and you could walk into Scarborough town centre in just over half an hour.

What is excellent about staying here was Shirma herself and her fantastic family. They were all welcoming and kind, and offered to help in any way they could. One of them would drive us to the hospital each morning, and Clifford gave me a lift from the airport when I arrived.

There was an ongoing issue with Wifi connection which made calling home tricky.

Overall, I don't think I could have chosen a better place to stay for my elective in Tobago. 100% would recommend!

We just had a great time at Shirmas appartments. We stayed for one month for an elective and lived in one of the appartments. Right from the begin Shirma was very helpful by giving as a cellphone with important contacts for our stay on Tobago as taxi drivers etc. During our stay, Shirma and her husband took us to the hospital in the morning and for shopping and also showed us the local food like doubles.

Very nice is also the area around and the location of the appartment, which was 5 mins away from scarborough. Also the beach was very close and we could walk there nearly everyday and enjoy the sea and the sun.

In the evenings we often had dinner outside, where shirmas has a little pavillion, which was very nice as well.

We would like to thank for everythingelse you did for us and can only recommend stayin in Shirmas appartements!
