“The perfect place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

If you are looking for a place to stay look no further. Birdie's Nest is the perfect place. It is right on the water with a view to die for, long beaches to walk and snorkeling right around the corner. The apartment was immaculate, with a well equipped kitchen, spacious rooms and great outdoor seating. Prince and his mother, Princess are wonderful people, very helpful and truly a joy to be around. We would never stay anywhere else. You can't improve on perfection!

Room Tip: We stayed in apartment 1, it was on the top floor, the view was wonderful with beautiful sunsets in...

We have just returned from a week in Tobago, staying at Birdie's Nest.

First, the setting..... it is RIGHT on the Caribbean Sea, so you can hear the
water lapping on the beach as you fall asleep. And we enjoyed
being able to take a dip the Birdie's Nest pool. Nestled in Black Rock,
Birdie's Nest kind of makes you feel like you are at home.

Prince Robinson really is the model of customer service. He is
extremely friendly and helpful. Having been a tour guide himself, he
is very knowledgeable about things to do in Tobago. And the
place is SPOTLESS. It is meticulously clean and well maintained.
Our little apartment was very well equipped, and we felt very
pampered by Prince.

We fully intend to return!

My husband and I stayed at Birdie's Nest for nearly 2 weeks, and couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations, car rental, and most of all the owner, Prince, and his mother. Our apartment (#3) was exactly the right size, incredibly clean and well maintained, and was just the perfect place to be. We especially loved our coffee first thing in the morning on our own front deck overlooking the garden with all the beautiful hummingbirds, bananaquits and other birds in the garden full of brightly colored flowers and exotic plants. We also loved sitting by the pool overlooking the ocean - perfect location! We enjoyed the long beach out front, and found good snorkeling just off the black rocks to the left - all very close!

Prince went above and beyond what we would ever imagine him to do to make our stay there wonderful: he stocked our refrigerator with some basics due to our late arrival on the island, arranged airport pickup, and then at the end of our vacation personally delivered us to the airport late at night after fixing our air travel problems with early check in earlier in the day! He sat down with us and gave us step by step instructions (write them down and follow completely!) to some of the other beaches, waterfalls, and other sights to see, plus provided us with maps to help guide us. He and his mother worked very hard to make our vacation just right for us!

The car rental was a nice little gold Mazda that got us around just fine. We were able to visit other beaches to snorkel, and had some wonderful photo opportunities with all the exceptional views along the way and at each beach. Arnos Vale and Englishman's Bay were our favorites.

We highly recommend Birdie's nest for the excellence in accommodation it proved to be. We can't even imagine a better experience on the island than what we had there, and very reasonably priced also. Thank you Prince for doing what you do SO WELL!

One word to describe Birdies Nest would be PERFECTION, because that's what Prince Robinson and his mother Princess Robinson aims for. Wonderful location not far from the bright light of the city but not a rural area, directly adjacent to the beach from the wonderful infinity pool it feels like your in the beach but without the waves. Spotless apartments, equip with all basic necessities. Prince is a wonderful person even leaving wine on ice with grapes, apples and bananas, what a lovely gesture. He also so helpful when we found ourselves in problems at 3:00am in the morning hours before or boat ride home. Thanks again Prince for recommending that particular taxi service, for a moment there I thought I wasn't going home. Next time well make more use of the facility, have a little BBQ, relax more in your lovely pool and of course chill with a great host. From one business man to the next keep up the excellent work.

Thank you for kind words, it’s great to have views and opinions from another business prospective. I do hope I have another opportunity to meet you and your newly wife. It wasn’t anything for me to get up early and assist; I try my best to help in whichever way I can. I do hope your return to Birdie’s Nest with family, may be soon.

After to be in Port of Spain, we travelled to Tobago by ferry and arrived to Birdie´s Nest and received a nice reception of Mr. Prince Robbisson according with attractive offer sent by email. We received a great surprise when saw location of appartment if front of beach, infinite swimming pool as indoor appartment, because it was tottally accomodation with nice furniture, kitchen and equipments of microwave, freezer, tv, sounds, beautiful lightings, confortable beedrom and so cleaning...Mr Robinson recomended us nice tours and to go fishing by coast with Frankie´s Tours and others possibilities for walking to beatiful places nearest, like designer´s and artist house, small school, restaurants, small places for buying fruits and foods for cooking your own food. We enjoyed Beach Soccer Play in Beach Black Rock and others activities friendly with his beatiful girlfriend. In general we recomended its and we would like repeated this experience any holidays...

Room Tip: Always get information of trip advisor. The best room may be higher because it has more provacity.

My wife and I went to Tobago in September 2013 for 2 weeks and discovered the best kept secret on the island. Prince was the best host and nothing was too much trouble for him - he was engaging and would openly share his knowledge about anything you wanted to know.
The apartment was spotless and location fantastic. I would recommend hiring a car (we used the one from Birdie's Nest) as you should experience as much of Tobago as possible. As you are in a true Tobago village go to Mike's bar and drink with the locals.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Birdie's Nest holiday apartments are a gem, tucked away beside the beach on the Caribbean coast of Tobago, at Great Courland Bay. Located at the end of a country lane, our apartment house is quiet and secluded, but not remote. Far away enough away from the village to hear just the sound of the birds and the ocean, yet near enough to enjoy the village steelband, a Carib beer at the local "rum shop", or church on Sunday! This is the real West Indies. The real Tobago. This is Birdie's Nest. Birdie's Nest beach house sits on the shoreline, facing the sea. It is perched on a slight slope and enjoys a clear, cool, elevated view of the beach and the ocean. It is a typical two-storey West Indian house, divided into three beach holiday apartments. A single two-bedroom apartment occupies the entire upper floor of the house. The lower floor is divided into two one-bedroom self-contained apartments with lockable dividing door enabling them to be converted into another spacious two-bedroom accommodation when required. ... more   less
