Birdsong Tobago - Paradise on Earth

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Birdsong Tobago is your home away from home. A graciously decorated villa filled with every amenity for the perfect vacation. Our panoramic balcony view is unrivalled and offers a relaxing spot in which to sink into the island lifestyle. For more variety the gardens and both balconies provide bird viewing areas. There is a private pool with a sunset deck, an expansive garden with many fruit trees and friendly staff. For your browsing pleasure there is a wide selection of books, puzzles and games at your fingertips.

The property has a 3 night minimum for rental. We look forward to hosting you.

The 1/2 acre garden around the house is a visual treat. Bougainvillea abounds, there are mango trees, a breadfruit tree, orange/grapefruit and lime trees so choose your season and there will be something available. There are at least 20 easy-to-watch species of birds including our own resident Mot-Mots, bananquits and a variety of tanagers that live on the property and come to feed from the bird trays that we have available. And see if you can spot the squirrels lunching on the coconuts hanging on the trees.

Our guests say it repeatedly - the biggest disadvantage of Birdsong is that it is so difficult to leave. Sightseeing trips seem unnecessary with the on-site offerings. But if you are in search of diversions within 5 minutes you can be on 3 of the best beaches in Tobago - including Grafton Beach and Mt. Irvine beach. Several restaurants are within a 10 minute drive and you can even find a bank machine and two supermarkets only 15 minutes away.

Our recent guests have described complete satisfaction with their visit. Take a look at the comments section.

Please feel free to ask us any questions about Tobago or about the villa. We are truly looking forward to your visit.

Our stay at Birdsong Villa was just AMAZING! The llocation was perfect. It was a quck healthy walk to the beach and near restaurants and stores. The villa provides all of the privacy in the world. The villa had more than enough room with its big spacious rooms wich each its own bathroom. Several seathing areas with plenty if seating for entertaining and nice size kitchen with everything you will need. Guillian the owner was available and ready to handle any issues or concerns at anytime. She showed us that she really cared. The house keeper was pleasant and super sweet. Its location was a quick walk to the beach. And the pool was everything. Dont miss out on the string lghts wich provides great ambiance in the evening. Having Guilians father on premises gave us a sense of security and he also was delightful. He was quiet and stayed to himself but was there if we needed anything he was too available. We definitely would recommend this property!!!!

A beautiful home with character, beautiful views and all amenities...a memorable stay!

  • 5 of 5

First, the place is very well located - near a few beautiful beaches, and a short ride from both Crown Point and Scarborough. Fish market is next door too :) It is a quiet and safe area, gated and secluded.

The house has everything you will need, and is very well equipped. Rooms are spacious, comfortably furnished and functional. The terrace is fantastic and we enjoyed it from morning breakfast with visiting birds to beautiful sunset views for evening cocktails...

The swimming pool is very nice too, perfect for refreshing and play with the kids.

I also have to say that the highlight of this trio has been the great communication with Gillian and the warm welcome and attention from Joe, her father. Joe has been providing recommendations, great advice and he's a very interesting person. Gillian has been fantastic, flexible and even sent us back a few items left behind. Thank you so much Gillian and our warmest regards to your father.

We (family of four) spent a week in T&T and are so glad we found Birdsong!

Here is a (long) list of things that are great about Birdsong:

Value for money;

Location (close to everything but still feels secluded);

Complete privacy;

Gorgeous pool;

Beautiful gardens;

Great views;

Lovely patio;

Outdoor veranda;

Fully equipped kitchen;

Lots of great books to read:

Board games (we enjoyed monopoly nights with our kids)

Loads of dishes, towels, linens;

Spacious bedrooms;

Comfy beds and bed linens;

Huge closets;

Air conditioning that worked like a dream;

Ceiling fans in every bedroom;

Well thought out indoor and outdoor seating areas;

Roomy furniture;

Outdoor dining areas;

Outdoor shower;

Beautiful beaches nearby;

Stores nearby (vegetable/fruit stall and grocery store in Pleasant Point);

Restaurants a short drive away (Fish Pot, Quench juice/smoothie shop, La Tortaruga);

Chris (who took us out on a memorable guided tour of the island);

Chris's mum (who saved the day by washing a huge pile of dishes);

Gillian (who is easily reachable and very responsive); and last but not least...

Bird song (from our lovely feathered friends)!

A short list of things that could be improved about this property:

- One toilet did not flush. We used the other two which worked just fine.

- Dishwasher was broken. We mostly ate out, so this did not bother us.

- Hand rail at the pool entrance came off. We don't have small kids, so it was fine.

The above were not deal breakers for us, so we did not insist upon getting them fixed during our short stay. They are quick fixes and will make Birdsong more desirable than it already is!

We felt like we were staying in a beloved, gracious, well cared for family home. Which made us want to care of it even more, and leave it in a good condition for others to enjoy.

Where you stay can make or break your vacation. Birdsong truly made our trip memorable. It became our home away from home, and we would love to come back some day and stay again.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Birdsong for a week in February and absolutely loved it! Very spacious for just two of us but we used all of the sitting areas during our stay and our favourite spot for a sundowner was the large open-sided room draped with bougainvillea and with views out to the sea. The pool is lovely and, again, plenty of space for sunbathing and relaxing. We did manage to drag ourselves away to explore the island but, fortunately, it is so small you can see it all and still take advantage of this beautiful place! Owner, Joe wasn’t around for most of our stay only arriving the evening before we left – he is delightful and it is a pity we didn’t have more time to talk to him. However, his friendly and efficient ‘man of business’ Chris, introduced us into the villa and quickly resolved the couple of minor things we needed sorting out while we were there. Finally, just to reassure potential renters, although the ‘house’ is the top story of a large property, the orientation of the building and gardens is such that you will have complete privacy. Highly recommended!

The Birdsong is a perfect Tobago retreat

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, very relaxing location and a private yard in a great neighbourhood. Joe is a exceptional host with a beautiful large home perfect for a family. We had 8 family members enjoy the Birdsong Villa over Christmas and the house was a perfect size for a large group. We enjoyed the local beaches of Buccoo, mount Irvin and grange. They are walking distance but a car is a good idea for a long term stay. Easy to get to and close enough to most of the amenities at crown point/Bon accord. Definitely recommend and would stay again. Pool with a view of the Caribbean ocean is amazing. Thank you for you hospitality Joe!!
