|Minimum Stay||3 - 8 nights|
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 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.
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.
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!
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!!
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!
