Birdhouses is a very unique place in the sunset side of the island, in front of water. Very private and in contact with nature. Wonderful place for star gazing or bird watching, provides with wifi, cable tv, ac, king size bed, balcony with table, two chairs and a hammock. Safe, spacious and airy bathroom with hot water and a small but fully equipped kitchenette. Bicycles included! Steps to go up to the deck and steeper steps to go from the first floor to bedroom in the second to get more view!
“The Birdhouses are exactly as described & a wonderful spot to relax, refresh & renew. Lucrecia provided daily updates on restaurant specials & activities that would be of interest. Highly deserving of their SuperHost status. Would definitely recommend staying in their comfortable, scenic Birdhouses. Luis & Lucrecia will see that you have everything you need & more.”
Bird Island is a unique experience; imaging having your very own island to spend time with your loved one, family or group of friends in total comfort and absolute privacy . It is located inside one of the most beautiful atolls in Belize, covering the full spectrum - in true relaxation or endless choice of outdoor activities at your fingertips and right outside your door. Its been featured in national and international publications including Airbnb's recent 'Like This, Live There' ad campaign.
“Every wonderful review about Bird Island was true! It was total paradise. Our TOP highlight of the trip was the fishing tour we booked with Thurman. He's so sweet and knowledgable about the area, and took us to all his secret fishing spots. We caught 12 fish, 5 lobsters, and 6 conches...and could have kept going but it was already way more food than my husband and I could have possibly finished in the 4 days we were there. Definitely recommend booking that tour as an addition to the trip (on the 1st day so you have plenty stocked for the remaining days). The kitchen was very well stocked as well - even if we hadn't caught any fish or brought any food, there was enough there to eat comfortably for 4 days. The only thing missing is fruits and veggies...and booze :) Wi-fi is not amazing on the island, but you're there to disconnect right? It's enough for emails and a little bit of social media, but forget about streaming anything! Also our first night there, the wi-fi went down entirely so were pretty isolated from the world for ~40-some hours. Overall - food was great, weather / temperature was great, hot showers + cool ocean was great...it was a perfect trip!”

“If you're looking at this property, and reading these reviews, YOU NEED TO COME HERE!!! The log cabin was immaculate and Bruce was an INCREDIBLE host. He picked us up from the airport and on the ride to the cabin (about 1 hr) he started telling us about things we were seeing along the way. The cabin was IMMACULATE upon arrival and it was even better than the pictures you see here (because you're actually there!!) We spent alot of time with Bruce (because we booked all of our excursions through him prior to arrival) and he made sure to give us the best experiences at all of them. He has a team of people that work with him (that were all awesome as well) and he planned out our vacation according to days when the weather was good and the sites wouldn't be as busy etc. (for example we did a few things on days where no cruise ships were around, aka TONS of people, so we avoided those crowds!!) He also gives his guests a cellphone so that you can easily contact him if need be and would answer it immediately. You can tell that Bruce loves his country and wants to teach you all about it and give you the best experience as possible while you are staying at his property. Like it says in the description, the property is located near a small village and there are no restaurants/bars/stores within walking distance (so don't come here for the nightlife.) You can however buy fresh bread, cheese, icecream etc. from the Mennonites just down the road which I HIGHLY recommend!! There is also a store that has all of the essentials (booze, toilet paper, snacks and food etc.) in Bermudian Landing which we accessed by bicycles (which are also provided by Bruce) and it took us about 20 minutes (one way.) We loved hanging out in the hammocks on the covered porch and LITERALLY spent hours out there! The Howler Monkeys did come visit us a few times at the cabin (which was truly incredible!) We fed the turtles and fish everyday which was also awesome! There is NO WI-FI or TV so you must be there to ditch the technology and enjoy your beautiful surroundings! We would listen to the jungle come alive, have some drinks and play cards (which I HIGHLY recommend bringing) every night which was a nice change of pace!! In summary, you can probably tell that we TRULY enjoyed our stay at the log cabin and Bruce was an AMAZING host, he was like our Belizean dad while we were there (even though I think we're similar in age) and we always felt safe and well taken care of!! If you're looking to enjoy nature in Belize (and all the peace and tranquility that it has to offer) then this is the place for you!! We would go back in a heartbeat!”
