  • It's amazing what Nancy does for the birds. It's very nice talking to Nancy about all kinds of things and watching the birds. If you like tropical birds you should really visit this place.
  • This is a great place to hangout, cool off and meet the birds. Nancy is wonderful!
  • March-April 2009 We rented the small home/shop in the middle of the then secret garden, It was just like being tn the back woods of Belize, FANTASTIC!! MY wife wasn't very happy when the kitchen window fell in on her, but hell that's what the jungle is all about. Her work with the parrots and unique plants is to be praised. and appreciated. Thank you Nancy for the opportunity.
  • Small yet informative.
  • We had the most beautiful time there. It was fun and informative. We showed up as strangers and left as friends. I would recommend anyone who loves animals to stop in. It's not a zoo, it's a rescue operation so I feel great about a donation to a great cause. I will definitely be going back.
