This is an ok place to visit if you just want to see hummingbirds up close and personal. They have 15 of the 17 varieties and Theo, ( the guy to whom the house belongs) is very knowledgeable. The mandatory slide show goes on a bit. For me there were far too many artificial feeders everywhere, I like to see... More

If you're in Trinidad you must visit this place. It's beyond me to describe what a garden full of humming birds looks and feels and sounds like so you'll just have to go yourself. Theo is a great guy and patiently answers questions from guests that he must have heard hundreds of time before. Did I say it was fantastic?

Went to Yerette with my family for the first time today. Chirping & the flutter of wings greeted us as we walked up the driveway...I had never seen so many hummingbirds! The experience started with an interactive lecture by Theo on the significance of the hummingbird in Trinbagonian history & culture, as well as on general facts about the birds... More

You will be enthralled as Theo teaches you about the lives of humming birds in Trinidad and Tobago. Gloria will cook a fine lunch or breakfast for you. All the while, hundreds of birds will buzz around. You will feel the breeze from their wings as they pass by you! An incredible place that you must, absolutely must, visit.

Theo and Gloria graciously open their home. Theo shares an in depth knowledge of the hummingbirds. A unique experience to see so many varieties so close.

The experience is taken away due to the host sharing too much. While I appreciate that he is proud of his place and has a passion for birds, he should be cognizant to the fact that not all his visitors are as interested in a presentation about the birds. I'd take a gamble and say most people want to just... More

Thought I was going to see a few Hummingbirds flying around. Instead we were treated to approx. 3000 iridescent fairies of 13 different varieties, zipping: up - down - sideways - backwards, within the mere 100 square fert of someone's front yard. Our hosts were extremely accomodating & while I'm aware Theo has a PhD - I didn't realize he... More

Theo and Gloria are wonderful hosts! Theo gives an informative and impressive presentation on the hummingbirds history in Trinidad! And Gloria makes you feel right at home with her delicious refreshments! It was a delightful and relaxing day at The home of the hummingbirds!

We spent from 8.30am to 2.30pm with Theo and his gracious wife and enjoyed their hospitality enormously. We saw lovely Hummingbirds and as we were the only visitors that morning we got good photo opportunities, The Ruby Topaz was elusive but the tiny Tufted Croquet had to be my favourite. A lovely place to visit. Theo's stunning photographs are available... More
