“Awesome Dinner for 7!”
Reviewed 2 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We first met chef Waldo at "Paella Night" at Bellybuttons in Esperanza. After chatting a bit he offered to host a private dinner party for the 7 of us either on the beach or at his B&B, the Birdsnest studio. We ended up going with dinnner at the Birdsnest. He cooked up some of the best Paella we have had and was even better than what we had at Bellybuttons a few nights earlier. The atmosphere was great with sunset views of PR. Great dinner, wonderful Host (and his wife!), and a memorable end to our trip to Vieques

“Perfect place, excellent price, lovely experience”
Reviewed 1 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This is a place to return to .....

Owners are wonderful people. In sharing their home with us, a family of four, we had a fantastic place to relax while not away on the beaches or eating out. Daughters have an artistic side and we all enjoyed visiting the glass studio just before leaving.

“Birdsnest is tranquility”
Reviewed 19 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Birdnest came recommended to us by friends who lives in San Juan. It is on hilltop surrounded with trees and colorful tropical landscaping. I enjoyed the privacy, and tranquility. The hot tub is a treat. The onsite glass art studio is great to visit. The owners extends wonderful hospitality. Great and memorable stay at Birdnestudios.

“Just rent it...”
Reviewed 2 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Highly recommended... My wife and I stayed at El Pitirre just a couple weeks ago. Waldo and Ileana are wonderful. They are helpful and always available, but stay out of your way. It's like a private cottage, all to yourself. The place is clean and has everything you need. Location is great, just outside Isabel Segunda, close to a well stocked convenience store. Nothing but Coqui frogs at night. This is not a hotel, so no maid service, etc. But, if you want to be pampered then Vieques is probably not the best choice for you (although everything can probably be arranged, we did not bother to check). Rent a Jeep and explore the island. Don't miss out Waldo's paella at Belly Buttons on Wednesday. Check out Ileana's glass studio (she makes glass sound really interesting). The only small issue is the driveway. It's steep and narrow. You have to be careful when leaving the gate so you don't pull out in front of another car (luckily traffic is sparse). None of this in any way would make me reconsider renting from Waldo. Just treat it as part of the adventure...
