Stay on your very own island with your loved one, family or group of dear friends in total comfort and absolute privacy . Bird Island is located inside one of the most beautiful atolls in Belize, offering our guests an endless choice of outdoor activities right outside your door and with fauna all around you. It has been featured in many national & international publications and was the opening act in Airbnb's recent 'Like This, Live There' campaign. Bird Island is indeed a unique experience.

Mekân
(May 28, 2020 update: Belize is opening its economy as of tomorrow, and will officially re-open international travel as of July 1st. Undoubtedly, airline carriers will soon announce their new flight schedules. Belize fortunately has had but a handful of cases.
Meantime Bird Island has undergone a total renovation: now offering an enclosed white-sand beach area, over-the-water bar, a brand new upstairs lookout apartment, an equipment room filled with the best of outdoor gear, expanded new outside eating area and a further long string of improvements. New pictures will be up in early June, 2020. Despite these superb additions, costs will remain the same till the end of 2021.)

If want to get-away from it all, even for the shortest of time in an absolutely comfortable and quaint setting, then this is the place. Want to go swimming or snorkeling at your own leisure in crystal clear water in a beautiful unspoiled reef, you will be surrounded by one.

After spending time at Bird Island, even for the shortest of time, you will feel like you have done something truly special.

Important Added Information. (Updated March, 2020)
#1- Getting to Placencia from Belize City:
By Shuttle: All-in-One Travel Services, $90 per person (each way); pick up at Belize International airport. 3-hour ride. (011-501-620-2267 / 515-7225). Private SUV and individual help. Great folks.
By Rental Car: between $90 - $100 USD a day; roughly 3 hour drive. We have our own private place to leave your rental car while in Placencia.)
By Air: (Maya or Tropic Air) $135 USD each way per person / 40 minute flight. Fastest way.
By Taxi : $300 USD each way by SUV (4 people); $350 USD by van (6 people).
(Note: If going to Bird Island the same day as arriving, the shuttle/rental car/taxi way works as long as one is arriving in Belize International by 1pm (it is a 3hr drive to Placencia + 1 hr for food shopping + 30 minutes to get to the island by 6pm; it gets dark in Belize by 6:30. If arriving to Belize International after 1pm it is best to fly to Placencia.

#2- Length of stay: We have a minimum of 4 days. Also good to keep in mind, as a general rule we have a 72-hour window between guests for general cleaning and/or maintenance. It has also served us well to be able to accommodate guests wanting to stay 1-2 days longer than they expected.

#3- In order to help you with your logistics, we can pick you up at the Placencia airport at 11am (or later) or where you are staying on the day of your stay. We can then take you food shopping and off we go.
Pick-up from the island should be about 2 hours before departing Placencia.

#4- The trip from Placencia Village to Bird Island is included in the price. As a default, we meet at 12 Noon (or later) at the centrally-located UNO gas station dock, (behind M&M Hardware, a huge orange building and parking lot in the very middle of town). It is the only gas station in town. Please note that this dock is different than the new public dock which is at the very end the peninsula.

#5- Sleeping accommodations: The island's has three separate buildings with sleeping accommodations; the main house which has a master bedroom with a queen-size bed with all amenities. The 2nd building is a new over-the-water, totally self-contained cabana, also with queen-sized bed and also with all amenities. The 3rd building is a brand-new upstairs studio with full amenities; its downstairs room is also a small bedroom (4th option) with no bathroom facility.

#7 - Extra Guests: Upon booking, if you are not sure how many extra guests there will be, perhaps it is best to book only 2, but change your reservation as you get closer to actual arrival. The island is geared towards 2-6 people.

#8 - Side Tours: While staying in Placencia or Bird Island: We have our own tour company (see Privasea Adventures) which caters to smaller private groups and their emphasis is on total comfort and fun; we include an excellent lunch, the use of the best equipment and even Yamaha Sea-Scooters.
There are three side tours we highly recommend: Monkey River while staying in town; visiting the main Belize Reef while staying at Bird Island; our 'Smorgasbord' trip for fishing, snorkeling and lobstering on their first day of staying at the island. We do not do diving.

#9 - Exclusivity. Yes, when you book Bird Island, you will have the entire island all to yourself in absolute privacy. There is no staff on the island. A live-in cook maid cook is available upon request. Which makes Bird Island the only truly totally-private island offering in Belize, since there is no one else staying in the island while you are there.

#10 - Security: Though Bird Island is only 6 miles away from town and inside its own atoll, we share a security association with two other nearby islands.

#11- Food: Bird Island is normally a self-catering scenario (unless you hire a maid/cook), so plan to bring enough meats, vegetable and drinks (i.e. liquor) for your stay. We do assist you with your food shopping. The island does have a very well-stocked kitchen with a myriad of condiments such as cake mixes, flour, rice, spices, oils, paper towels, garbage bags, etc., so you are not required to think of every little thing. Food shopping is a very simple affair and will be the very last step before leaving for Bird Island. The island has refrigeration, chest freezers and 2 Yeti coolers at the bar.

#12 - Drinking Water: The island has a well-filtered rain-water system for all general uses. However, we still provide purified bottled drinking water for drinking. No need to worry about bringing water yourself.

#13 - Wading slipper-type shoes. The island is surrounded by hard sand flats and within 100 feet by live coral; bringing soft shoes that cover your toes and ankle are a good thing to have when walking about. There are many pairs in the island that may fit you however.

#14 - Snorkeling equipment: Bring your own if you prefer though the island does have many sets that may fit you, though we also can bring specific sizes from our tour office on the mainland. Also IF you are certified diver and would like to use our 15ft-dive Brownie Third-Lung outfit during your stay, let us know and we will bring it out and leave it on the island during your stay.

#15- Fishing equipment: The island is usually surrounded by constant marauding schools of fish (jacks, snappers, etc) feeding around it. If you want to do bottom fishing, you should buy some shrimp bait when food shopping. The island now has a new fishing dock.

#16 - Refrigeration: The island has a propane refrigerator with a fair-size freezer and now a separate chest freezer to maintain ice during your stay. Bringing at least four (6) bags of ice is always a good idea.

#17 - Communication. A local phone is at the island so you can call local numbers. The island has very reliable WiFi.

#18 - Power. The island runs on solar-power and has a wind generator; so no noisy generator.

#19 - Getting around the atoll. There are 2 single-person plus 2 new double-person kayaks to cruise the atoll that surrounds the island.

#20 - Music - The island has a Bose Bluetooth speaker to play your own music from your phone. Please no streaming music, it is a bandwidth killer. :)

#21 - Sun Tan Lotion and Bug Spray. Remember, it is the tropics; the best type of suntan lotion is one of a high Block Factor, either lotion or spray type. As to bugs (i.e. sand flies, mosquitoes), unlike the mainland or most other islands, Bird Island just doesn't have them, in fact it is one of the things our guests really appreciate the most.

#22 - Places to Stay in Mainland: if coming before your stay and plan to stay in Placencia, there are many places to stay in close by where we take off from. Today there are many choices of places stay in that are right on the Placencia beach, and walking distance to where we leave from. May we suggest Brisas Oceano right in town, the more upscale Nirvana, or the very cozy, one-mile-away-from-town Mariposa Resort.

#23 - General weather pattern:
January-June 15th: is considered the 'dry season'.
June 15th-July 15th: the first seasonal rains tend to occur.
July 15th-September 15th: usually is very nice weather, interrupted by the occasional 30-minute passing shower.
September 15th-October 30th: the second seasonal rains tend to occur, again passing showers.
November 1st-December 30th daily scattered thunderstorms here and there but great weather in long stretches between them.
(Please note that weather in Belize tends to be pleasant, specially at Bird Island which is in a rain shadow and inside an atoll, so its surrounding waters stay clear even if windy. Weather. needless to say, we could never guarantee, so the above is only a rough guide.

Last Note: Bird Island is always undergoing improvements each year. Two seasons ago we added new decks, a fishing dock and the new observatory overlooking the atoll, which guests have welcomed. Last year we did the new walkways and added an over-the-water, totally self-contained cabana and a new fishing dock and an enclosed swimming area with a gazebo over it. The unexpected 'break' in 2020 is allowing us to add a new upstairs studio, new beach area, over-the-water hammocks, a new sports-equipment room and a long string of other changes and improvements.

Retired not from work, but from the maddening crowd. Came to Belize in 2010. Started Bird Island in 2013. Military Service: Vietnam Era. Then traveled throughout Central and South America for 2 years, always thought I would be back. Went to Cornell University for 5 years. Lived in Sun Valley, ID area for 7 years and then in Prescott, AZ for 23 years until 2010. My two main hobbies have been fly fishing and bird hunting with my beloved English Setters which I had the supreme honor of having for three generations encompassing 37 years.
