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.

there were 6 of us in our group - before we stayed here, we had viewed a few other properties and it was an unanimous decision to stay at birdsong, and it's a decison we'll never regret making. We stayed there for my birthday weekend, and it was absolutely fantastic. To Gillian and Mr. Goddard, thanks first and foremost for sharing your beautiful family home with us. to Chris and Nick, who came and shared in our impromptu birthday celebration and made us feel so welcome - thanks, thanks and thanks. You helped make our few days memorable. May God continue to bless you and your families throughout 2018; we hope to visit again soon.

Great set up for 2 or 3 couples. Tons of room to get together or to get some privacy. Its an older villa, so there are some quirks but overall extremely comfortable, functional and well equipped. Loved the pool and gardens with all the resident birds, including a couple of chickens 😀. Joe lives in the apartment downstairs and is very nice and helpful. Joe has a beautiful little dog named Coco who is very shy but with some convincing she became our pup for the week. You can walk down the hill to the town and beach but if you like to walk, I suggest heading up the hill towards Bethel. Its more interesting and that way its downhill on the way back.
Highly recommend Birdsong for a nice relaxing vacation in a beautiful spot.
We did not want to leave!
This was such a beautiful experience ... the house is lovely and so spacious and comfortable! Chris took us out for a day to explore the island and his love and passion for this place is infectious. We will definitely be back for a longer stay to enjoy the wildlife and gorgeous views, and you could not ask for better hosts.
Thank you so much! Anita and Mike
So quaint, peaceful and relaxing!
This villa is bang for your buck!. Very spacious for my party of 4. There is nothing to fault, lots of character as an older furnished villa, but absolutely everything you need.From a well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, and I'm not sure which was better between the beautiful verandah for early morning cuppa or evening dinners, or the Devine pool!!!which was deceptively simple, yet something about being in it made you want to just pass the day,night and even weekend away,lol.. The garden is well kept and contains a large variety of mature fruit trees and tropical plants which attract loads of birds.. every morning the mot mots come and say hello to you in the porch :)
I would recommend having a vehicle, which would put everything from beaches,resturants and even the golf course within a 5-10 min drive
.. As everyone has already mentioned, it is very very hard to leave this little piece of serenity!.. I would love to return soon, and recommend Birdsong to anyone looking for a relaxing stay.
JUST AMAZING !!!!!!!
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!!!!
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);
Fully equipped kitchen;
Lots of great books to read:
Board games (we enjoyed monopoly nights with our kids)
Loads of dishes, towels, linens;
Comfy beds and bed linens;
Air conditioning that worked like a dream;
Ceiling fans in every bedroom;
Well thought out indoor and outdoor seating areas;
Outdoor dining areas;
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.
