Beautiful location with a simpler lifestyle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“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.”

Perfection beach location

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the Tree House and the Crows Nest and it was the perfect family vacation. In keeping with the style and feel of the island, the Crows Nest is the perfect option for staying on Corn Island. Helen, who takes care of things year round does an excellent job. She is an excellent cook, who for a small fee will cook you a meal when you don't want to go out or cook for yourself. Need some laundry done just ask Helen and she will get it done. Without a word of a lie my white t-shirt has never been so white as when Helen washed it. Don and Cathy, who own the property, went all out to make us feel comfortable. It was more like staying with friends than renting at place to stay. The location, right on the beach was the best. In our two weeks there we never saw a better beach.

Front Suite - Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Best place we stayed on Big and Little Corn Islands. We originally booked the Crows Nest but ended up upgrading to the Front Suite because it happened to be available when we arrived. Thank you Kathy, Helen and Narrie for making us feel so welcome and at home. We hope to be back again sometime soon :)

Simply paradise

  • 5 of 5

An incredible stay! Initially we thought it was a little far from town but after a day of having the beach pretty much to yourself we decided it was the perfect location. Taxis were easy to catch and there is a bus that runs on the island although nobody really knows what the schedule is.

The studio was perfect for my husband and I. It had everything we needed. French press for morning coffee, toaster oven for bread, small fridge for perishables AND beer plus a magnificent view albeit from the side but who was simply paradise.

No need for ac, the warm sea breeze cooled things down. The surf lulled us to sleep every night and the songbirds woke us every morning.

We ran, boogie board, walked around the island, swam on the other side of the island or simply lazed about on the hammocks under the coconut trees.

Don and Cathy were great hosts, unobtrusive but available. Helen was the best! She cooked us lobster dinners and even fried up conch at our request.

Yes, it was definitely one of our favourite spots...

Would definitely come back.

Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 3 weeks and had a wonderful time. Nice owners and the property manager Helen was great and looked after anything we ever required. Beautiful quiet location on the beach. It's typically the windy side of the island which made for incredible breezes in the room with very few mosquitoes. There is a calmer beautiful beach for easier swimming within a 30 min walk or 10 min taxi ride. Bycyles are also available for rent, however taxi's are so cheap we hardly used the bicycles. Very relaxing on the hammocks at the waterfront. Helen will also cook you up a nice lobster dinner (provided it's in season) for a very reasonable price. It was fun exploring all the small vendors to see who had what supplies as it often changed from day to day. We much enjoyed this location and would highly recommend it. The hot shower was also a big bonus as hot water is not common here.

Fantastic location and staff

  • 5 of 5

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.
