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, a wooden swinging bench sheltered by the grapefruit tree. For your browsing pleasure there is a wide selection of books, puzzles and games at your fingertips.
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.
It is no coincidence that the NY Times stated that 'when in Tobago, Villa Gillailes (the former name of Birdsong) is our Villa of Choice. Our recent guests have also echoed their 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.
Birdsong was wonderful. Gorgeous pool, flowers. Hummingbirds all over the place, Blue Headed Matmats came to visit regularly. Owners were fun and wonderful. Nice location.
Well what to say Grace and Joe are very welcoming love u all very much lovely property very homely my family enjoy every moment my kids. And grand son enjoy the pool very much we all can wait to come back time was to short for as
We took our son and wife plus their three children and we all had such a great time did not want to come home. We spent evening meals and breakfast on the balcony and the kids loved the pool, but the best part of it all is Grace and Joe. They are so welcoming and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The grounds are a Bird lovers paradise and will share the balcony with you with a bit of encouragement! Location is perfect for restaurants and water sports - kids have never slept so well! Looking forward to our next visit!
Truly a home away from home!
Lovely property in a very quiet neighbourhood, with views of the golf course and ocean from the porch that had mot-mot birds flying through every day, a very inviting private pool that's always warm, and such lovely hosts!
I visited with a group that ranged from a 1year old baby to three seniors, and everyone was comfortable and happy. We can't wait for another opportunity to visit!
What a wonderful time we had at Birdsong Villa. We were 2 couples and my daughter of 17.
I have been to Tobago many times before and we always stayed down by Store Bay in a Hotel. Never again. Birdsong Villa gives you a truly incredible experience. The house is a vacation in itself. Everything you need and more. Large open areas, full Kitchen. We spent evenings on the balcony and so much time in the pool, but the best part of it all is Grace and Joe. They are so welcoming and helpful. Always there when you need something. The grounds are a Bird lovers paradise. Why stay at a hotel when you can feel at home with Grace and Joe. We will definitely be staying at The Birdsong Villa again.
We absolutely loved our stay at Birdsong and would stay there again in a heartbeat. The house was comfortable and the different sitting areas—living room, front room, pool, and porch—provided a really roomy feel even with many of us there. All the amenities are provided (beach towels, snorkeling gear, kitchen utensils, etc.). Also, the location is excellent, with great beaches nearby.
Perhaps even more important than the place is Grace and Joe. Even though they were visiting family in Trinidad during our stay, they called us a number of times to answer any questions, provide advice, coordinate cleaning, and to be sure that all of our needs were addressed. On our way out, I had left some money behind. Grace and Joe located it and promptly returned it to us. What a great place and what great hosts.
