“friendly, clean and spacious accommodation”
Reviewed May 14, 2009

I stayed with Shirley for 4 weeks during my medical student elective. The apartment was in a very convenient location for me, and I could easily travel to pigeon point to spend time at the more popular beaches. There is a nice little shop, fruit & veg stall and taxi rank approx 3 minutes walk from the apartment. The apartment itself is very clean and spacious, and the swimming pool is well tended to. Shirley is extremely friendly and keen to make sure your trip goes well. It is very helpful having local knowledge at hand and Shirley treats you more like a guest than a paying customer. My stay was enjoyable and definitely good value, and I would return in an instant. Keep up the good work Shirley!

My wife and I spent 11 days at Hummingbird Heights and loved every minute of it. We stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment, which included a full kitchen, 2 spacious bedrooms, a large sitting area, and a wonderful balcony with a great view of the Caribbean Sea. We had a nice large pool as well. We paid a heck of a lot less than we would have paid if we'd gone to a hotel, and we had much more space than even the largest hotel suite. When we return to Tobago, we will certainly stay at Hummingbird Heights again.

The property itself is set on a lushly-forested hillside above Scarborough. It's a 5-minute drive away from the downtown area. The airport at Crown Point, plus all the dive shops in the Store Bay area, is approximately a 20-minute drive. We rented a Jeep through Shirley, and this was a great way for us to get around the island.

Shirley, our host, met us at the airport, arranged our rental car, and served us tasty rum punches and a chicken pasta lunch when we arrived. She was always on hand to answer any questions and make our stay very comfortable. Her dog, Violet, was a very welcome presence. Hollis, her chicken, provided tasty eggs that we cooked for breakfast.

If you are looking for quiet, spacious, beautifully-located accomodations at a fraction of the price you'd pay at a large hotel, then Hummingbird Heights is for you. I can't recommend it strongly enough.
