The Blue Bird Beachfront Apartment was the perfect holiday getaway for our family. We had a full house three adults and two children (3 1/2 and 10 mo.) and we had a wonderful time together. Our guide Steve waited on us at the Tobago airport till our rental vehicle arrived and got our car seats installed. He then lead us to the apartment and showed us around and how the lights, air conditioning, cable tv, and other amenities worked. We were then greeted by the housekeeper, Theadora who helped us with additional information about the property and where to find the best food in Tobago. She also tidied up each day which made our stay more relaxing.
From the porch, we had stunning views of the ocean and pool. There were many evenings where we fell asleep on the porch lounge chairs against the cool Caribbean breezes and the sound of the waves.
The pool was not deep enough for diving but was just the right size for my kids to play and allowed us to have full control of them getting in and out. I think we were in the pool at least three times per day.
Just outside the front gates, we were on the beach and if you took a right and walked about 50 meters you would find a little toddler pool for splashing. Turning left and you will come up to a much bigger beach and some rock formations you can climb onto.
The grounds were very well maintained by grounds crew who came one day during our four days stay for about 20 minutes to trim hedges and lawns. The plants and flowers on the property were in vibrant red and yellow colors.
The apartments photos speak for themselves; they were clean and inviting. The air condition worked as expected and was needed on those really warm evenings. We felt safe each day especially at night where we locked up the property gates and front door and burglar proofing each evening. One can also set the alarm system if the additional sense of security is needed.
Overall, I highly recommended this vacation spot for any travelers to Tobago. It is kid friendly, very secure and a few steps from the ocean. We hope to book again next time we visit the island.
