We share our time between Corn Island and Bellingham Wa. Have been coming to the island since 1997.
Don Weber purchased this studio in 1998
Beautiful location with a simpler lifestyle.
“We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Crow's Nest. What a lovely beach and so quiet. Just what the doctor ordered! Kathy and the staff were there to help if you needed but, otherwise, left you to your own devices. That doesn't mean we didn't speak or enjoy some chats over a glass on red in the evening. The beach, a constant sound of the surf and a wonderful ocean breeze ... incredible. There's not a lot of great eateries but that's not what we came for. However, there's a really good authentic Italian restaurant just down the beach. You can rent bikes or simply get a cab (incredibly cheap!). All in all, we would love to have the opportunity to return. Thank you Kathy.”
The Crows Nest and Tree House apartments are wonderfully located on their own at the far end of Long Beach. Good value. Delighted to have hot water. Helen the housekeeper is an angel! She was always available to help, clean, and cook if given enough notice. The owners live underneath the Crows Nest but respect their guests' privacy, whilst providing sun loungers, hammocks, and belly boards for surfing. The property opens directly onto the beach while the tree house is immediately across the dirt road. The weather provided some challenges. We stayed in January and there was a lot of warm driving wind and rain, which made a mess of the road. But we also enjoyed a lot of glorious sunshine and fun surf. 15 min walk along deserted beach to nearest bar / restaurant.
The property is nicely located on the beach and the Crowsnest accommodation provided the basics I needed for my week long stay in a self-catering unit. It is clear that the design of the space was well thought out and developed with attention to details. Overall the maintenance is good and the place is clean and comfortable. Communication with the owners was very prompt. Staff were helpful with what I needed and otherwise I had the independence & solitude I was looking for. Wifi and body boards were a great added bonus. Would have preferred if the bikes were free to use. The lobster dinner I ordered was good but pricey at 500 cordobas (only 300 elsewhere).
My one disappointment was the deck area. It was located at the back of the property and thus did not face the beach. Additionally the deck was useless in the rain because it got wet and worse yet, water collected in the overhead canvas. I got soaked twice and the cleaning lady regularly got wet when trying to drain the collected water. This inability to use the deck during rainy times meant there was no good place to sit and eat. It also meant I ended up sitting inside on my bed to read or watch a movie when it was raining rather than being able to use the awesome deck chairs outside. It seems like this is something that could be easily improved.
Yes I would recommend this accommodation but FYI:
- If you are planning to self-cater - the grocery situation is poor. The Commisary is mostly empty shelves. Use the pulperias but you will probably have to visit a few to get what you want. I recommend bringing as much as you can with you from the mainland.
- Some taxi drivers do not like to go to the end of Long Bay road - 4 drivers turned me down at the airport when I arrived before I got ride. Also, a driver during the week would not drive off the paved road. Granted it's not a really long walk along the beach... just something to be aware of.
We absolutely loved this beautiful island as well as our choice of accommodations. You cant beat the view from the property and the privacy of your own beach and hammock to lie and read a book or go for a swim. No one will bother you and you can completely relax.
Kathy and Don were very accommodating by helping us find where things were located on the island and providing fresh drinking water daily.
There are dogs living on this property but they are extremely friendly and we especially loved Sweeny who was always up for a scratch on the head.
The place is extremely secure with a night watchman and a safe inside the condo
The condo itself was basic but had enough for our needs during our stay. Stove top for cooking, fridge, shower and a double bed. The balcony had comfortable loungers and a table and chairs.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this beautiful and friendly little island. It truly felt like paradise.
Thank you for making our holiday so relaxing and enjoyable. It was just what we needed after a busy few months prior.
My wife and I returned to The Treehouse for the third time this year. It's becoming our preferred honeymoon get away spot. We enjoy cooking our own breakfast with fresh eggs we gather from the chicken Coop and having housekeeping do the dishes. Tucked up in the trees it is private yet steps to the beach. It has everything we need. What a find. Mitch Tarras
A repeat visit to the Crows Nest on Corn Island proved it was even better than I remembered. . Meditating on the unbelievably blue waters,fresh coconuts,great walks through tropical gardens. Amenities and location can't be beat . It has everything I want when traveling in the tropics. A comfortable bed,a great bath , a cool breeze and a great beach. The Crows Nest remains a great value.

What an amazing place. You must not need to be babysat. Come with independence. Kathy and Don and Helen will give you any help/info you need then go to it yourself! Thats what makes it great. Cook in or dine out whatever you want. Explore the island or sit on the beautiful secluded beach. Very quiet and private.The view is beyond expectation, you can have all the sun or shade you need. The property is very clean. Be patient, sometimes the power can go out, but remember this is a little island not a big 5 star resort! We loved it and highly recommend it.
