We live in Cedar by the Sea, a small area south of Nanaimo, that overlooks Round Island.  We have a large rancher that is our home.  Our companion parrots live among us, just as our parrot guests will.  We have two outside areas we share with our flock, a front patio and a protected side yard, supervised of course. 

Boarding  - now 3 Island Locations

Our Space


  • Parrot Room, among our flock, each in their own cages;

  • Ocean View Room for our guests over looking the sea;

  • Small Parrot Room; completely enclosed with a bay window

  • Safe Room for small parrots that want lots of one-on-one time  



Play time on Boings, Play Stands, Wood to chew, Boxes to take apart, Window ledges to clear,

Play areas inside and out


Our cage 

As we take a limited number of reservations, various sized powder-coated cages are ready for your use.   We put the active parrots in the largest cage possible during their stay.  All cages are cleaned, disinfected  and perches steam cleaned between each use.     All parrots have time out of the cage to play as well as time with personal one on one interaction, cuddle time, shoulder surfing or hanging out while watching tv, depending on the individual parrots needs.


We can pick up your parrot if that is easier  We can pick up from Campbell River to Victoria. Pricing would depend on the mileage and time.  If your schedule is full or you have an emergency we can also pick up your beloved pet.


Live on the Mainland?  Coming to you to pick up your parrot can be arranged. Options include using either B.C. Ferries or Harbour Air.  The pick up would include their rates, mileage and time.  For longer stays this might be the viable option so you can relax and enjoy your journey.


Boarding Checklist: 


  • Travel Cage

  • If you bring a cage it must be clean and in good condition

  • We use Zupreme pellet, Wild West if you use something different please bring it along

  • A cage cover if necessary

  • Special toys and play things

  • Client Information Form

Advantages to Boarding:

  • Peace of Mind - Knowing your parrot is well taken care of in a home environment and has constant care, even for assisting your parrot during any night time emergencies that may arise.

  • Out of Cage Time - Your parrot will receive more out of cage time than if you had someone come into your home for an hour a day.

  • Experience - Feel secure leaving your parrot with experienced boarding caregivers. We take many precautions to ensure the well-being of your parrot.

  • Socialize - Many parrots are not socialized with other birds or other people. It is important to get parrots use to change which is why boarding can be beneficial even if it's for a weekend.
