Shirma's Apartment - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report

I stayed with Shirma and Clifford while on my medical elective at Scarborough General Hospital and thoroughly recommend it!

The Wilsons take great care of their guests, taking you on a weekly food shop and helping organise travel and trips around the island. The apartments are clean, well equipped and roomy, in a safe neighbourhood and Bacolet Beach Club is only a 15 minute walk away.

A few things to note - you might want to bring towels/detergent/tea towels as these aren't provided and you may not want to buy them out there. Shirma may also take you for a shop from the airport so have a think on the flight over about what you want to eat over the next days!

Enjoy your stay!

Truly enjoyed my stay with Shirma. The apartment had all the facilities you need availible, incl. fully equiped kitchen, living area and a washing machine. The bedroom was fitted in with the AC which was good. Outside our flat we had outdoor facilities to sit in and enyoj Shirma's beautiful garden.

Shirma was a great host, even before we came to Tobago she anwsered all our questions by email very fast. She was always happy to help with anything and took a very good care of our whole group. We could always contact her on whats up or facebook. She provided us with information on reliable taxi drivers, and made sure we got good deals on prices, as we were a group of students. I litteraly felt as if I was staying at my family.

Shirma also took us shoping every week and drove us the the hospital every morning, which was great.

Would definitely recommend to stay with Shirma, it was great!

We visited Tobago for 5 weeks while doing an elective at the hospital. We are 4 girls from Germany studying medicine.

Choosing Shirma’s Apartments was probably the best decision we made about our trip.

Our apartment was very new. All apartments are very clean and well taken care of. There is everything you need in the apartment, AC, stove, microwave.

The neighborhood is rather quiet and seems very save. its only a 15 Minute walk to the beach. We rented a car for our stay but otherwise the students are taken to the hospital in the morning and hire a taxi driver for the other times.

But what makes this place really special is the family who runs it. Right from the moment we arrived they made us feel right at home. Shirma and her family are wonderful people and really invested in making sure that everybody has a wonderful time in Tobago. They mostly rent out to students so the price is really sensible and Shirma is aware of the restricted budget. Apart from that there are other students around to hang out with and share a cap. If you got an Problem at all you can always go to Shirma and she would do everything in her power to help you.

Overall in my opinion Shirma’s apartments is the best place to stay in tobago and we’ll definitely be back.

As a group of four we stayed at Shirma's for 5 weeks for our medical elective at Scarborough General Hospital.

Chosing Shirma's was definitely the right desicion. She and her family are very warm and welcoming people and they made our stay wonderful and unforgettable by taking good care of us. Once a week all students were taken to a supermarket and a vegetable store and every Sunday Shirma cooked a delicious meal for everybody.

The apartment we stayed at was very clean, comfortable, spacious and equipped with everything you need, like a toaster, microwave, AC etc. The only problem we sometimes encountered was the wifi connection, but Shirma tried her best to improve it and in the end it worked pretty well.

The area surrounding the apartment is very safe and quiet and a nice beach with a beach bar is located just a 10-15min walk away.

We can definitely recommend Shirma's and will return!

To stay at Shirmas was easily the best decision I did in this year and it's not even May. The room was perfect for a 5 week stay, she brought us to the hospital every day, shopping once a week and even made Sunday dinner for us. She made our stay very pleasant and provided us with good tips for the Tobago life. We met loads of other Med students and enjoyed liming on the terrace a lot. Literally nothing to complain!
