Crooked Tree Hospitality

When you arrive you may be welcomed by either of these two baby Iguanas that like to sun themselves in the bougainvillea by the front door.   If they are not on duty, you will certainly be welcomed by one of the staff who all speak three languages:  Creole, English, and most of all, — Hospitality.

While you are here you can be as active as you want. Ride, read, hike, go canoeing or sign up for a tour. Or just hang out behind the Lodge and see exotic birds.

We offer an escape from your world to our exotic world of bird sightings, morning sunrises over the lagoon, fishing. nature trails, the cashew festival, horseback riding, crocodile safaris on the lagoon. Finish your day star gazing from our patio deck at night to round the day off.

Then, as dawn breaks you’ll find the early rising fisherman is already out there and so are the birds. It’s time to start a new day of adventure at the Bird’s Eye View Lodge.
