Our pleasure to host for you;
Please rest assured that winning awards mean a lot to us and we will keep doing what we do right and as we continue to learn we will continue to make Birdnestudios, vacation rentals, your best little resort and home away from home. Read on. Welcome! and many thanks for visiting our web site. Birdnestudios are two well designed, beautifully decorated and fully equipped studio/apt. for your joy and comfort. Both are air conditioned. They are independently located on the same site so you can be close to your loved ones and still maintain your privacy. A little resort with many amenities just for you, just click on the amenities tab to see. We are strategically located on road #997 on the side of a hill with a spectacular view of the east coast of the main island of Puerto Rico. Enjoy a romantic sunset, watching the rain fall on the main island, the birds singing every day of the year or the beautiful trees on our property or even pick a fruit when in season. Sit under the trees or try napping on a hammock. Just enjoy your privacy and the sound of the breeze. Come kayaking or kayak fishing day, come hiking and birdwatching...or let me wake up your appetite with a delicious freshly cooked paella or whole grilled fish....we are a little resort without all the hassle. Strategically located, we are only 1.5 miles from the main town of Isabel Segunda and 4.5 miles from Esperanza and only 1 mile from the entrance to the beaches on the Wild Life refuge. No traffic hassle to go any where, no towns to cross to get to the beach. The birdnestudios is the place to stay when you want privacy, intimacy and yet when traveling with friends or loved ones because everyone is close by. We even have a well stocked convenience store at the bottom of the hill for those last minute purchases. Look on and enjoy like many others have, Your money can't go any farther than this. Need some more time after check out, talk to us for late check out failities at NO xtra cost. And please, very important, don't go anywhere without having all your questions answered. Visit my Gallery of pictures of Vieques, our property and many curious items....birdnest, way beyond your expectations... Oh yes, ....we are simply... just friendly ...everyone is welcomed ¡Bienvenidos! Mi casa es su casa.
The birdnest is operated by Ileana and me (Waldo), formally José. Ileana is a glass and mosaic artist and has her working/teaching studio on premises (recently retired).You can see some her work on this site under the tab "Glass Art". I am a former banker and business consultant in Puerto Rico and South America, very glad to be retired. Vieques was our choice for its beauty and tranquility. Yes, we have to put up with lots of inconveniences but the rewards are overwhelming and very much worth it. Its a choice. As a spare activity I cook for my guests and folks that request of my services. My menu is on this site under yourpersonalcuisine tab although we can always be creative and work outside the menu. Check it out and let me know if I can cook for you. We have three children with very interesting lives. Our oldest daughter lives in the Amazons of Venezuela and you can visit her site at selvadentro.com. She is the proud mother of our two grand children, go visit her. Natalia speaks; english, french, portuguese and spanish. (Natalia recently returned to PR to finish the schooling of her two sons).Tamara is the jet set member of the family working in the tourism industry on behalf of Puerto Rico. She travels through Europe & Latin America. She speaks italian, english and spanish. Tammy is now based of Puerto Rico. (lucky for us). Alexis is the youngest and is a lawyer turned realtor turned entrepenuer , in short, a businessman working very hard at it. Alex speaks english and spanish.
We hope that you like what I have prepared for you on this site. All is as is, no doctoring, no photo shop and trick pictures.. I am constantly adding things to the Nest in order to make your stay even more memorable. In all honesty, I do not believe you can find a studio with all the amenities and concierge services from me at these rates. I have been advised by some customers to raise my rates so people can think our place is of value. I refuse to do that. This thinking is what got us in the financial mess we live in today and professional marketers (I am an MBA-Syracuse in Marketing) are partly responsible for that. So trust me, the studios were built for my family to come but as you read earlier, destiny had something else in mind for them. So, we decided to rent.Have no regrets.
Have any questions, please call. I believe we have a better than good product. Read the guest book comments. I wish everyone that has stayed here wrote but I guess some are shy. I hope you decide to come to Vieques and stay with us. If you decide not to join us, please drop by and check us out any way. We'll be looking forward to have you the next time around and many times after that. ciao...waldo and Ileana, your hosts.
