The search for a place was narrowed down to how many people it could accommodate and amenities. We landed on the Birds Nest and are glad we did. We pulled up and were greeted by the owner who treated us like Family. He showed us the layout of the apartment and let us know he would be there if we... More

We stayed at the Bird's Nest Apts April 23rd thru April 26th. The location couldn't be more perfect. After getting early check in with no problem at all we threw our luggage in the apt, changed into bathing suits and ran literally across the street and to the beautiful beach. The water was clear and warm. After being in for... More

This place has turned into Denny's on the beach. So sad. And no beach access at all. Get back to your roots guys. Stick with why we all started coming here to begin with. Staff has no soul. I was the only one there in a bathing suit. Thank goodness for my cover up. Really guys. What ARE you thinking.... More

We recently stayed for a long weekend here. The view and beach here is, in our opinion, some of the best on the island. The balconies provided privacy and plenty of space to spread out. The unit was nicely furnished and updated. The owners are quite friendly and laid back.They answered the phone every time I called and they responded... More

We stayed at this vacation apartment January and February 2014, and didn’t want to leave! The complex was well furnished inside and out. We had everything we needed for an extended stay. If anything was needed the owners, Amerigo & Alessandra, who live in one of the four units, were always available. The apartments were very clean, tastefully decorated, quiet,... More

We stayed here with 3 adults and 2 younger kids and had plenty of room. We made a third bedroom out of the closet for the 2 kids using the provided air bed. The apartment location could not be beat - the beach literally across the street (great gulf views from both the living room and main bedroom balconies) and... More

Bird's Nest is a great place for a family vacation. They even accomodated my dog which made it most enjoyable. The unit was well-kept, up to date, and spotlessly clean. The beach was beautiful and right across the street with an unobstructed view from the balcony. There are many shops and restaurants within walking distance. The sunsets were magnificent. GREAT...

Good things: location across from the beach and near the Anna Maria pier and the price is good. Plenty of room for two couples (2 bedrooms, small galley kitchen, 2 bathrooms, large living room). Bad things: it was tricky flushing the toilets, every appliance was quirky or old (microwave worked occasionally, to get at the washing machine, you had to... More

4 of us stayed in the Birds Nest for 10 days in November 2012. Upon arrival there were some things that needed attended to. Told Amerigo (the owner along with Alessandra) about them and the next morning he had his repair guy right on it. Everything we told him about he took care of, right down to a new frying... More

From the moment we booked to the time we left we felt very comfortable. Sarasota Airport is within 15 miles away which was much easier to navigate to/from than Tampa. The owners were exceptionally nice and helpful with regards to suggestions to eat in town or even little things like beach info. The condo itself is very large and although... More
