Rebecca is an amazing host! Always there if we need but gave us space to enjoy the camp. The camp site is set up with everything you need. From cooking, to a warm (outdoor) shower. I highly recommend having a little getaway here.

Glamping Tent on Tidal Estuary
We loved staying at The Birdhouse tent! The location is idyllic, beautiful nature surrounding you, the tent is pristine, cozy, and snug sleeping quarters. The kitchen is quaint and we loved having breakfast on the deck. Rebecca answered all questions very quickly. The place is also so closely located to all attractions. Would love to come back!!

Glamping Tent on Tidal Estuary
Perfect glamping in unique location! Rebecca is an attentive host and provided a beautiful campsite with extras like electricity and a charger. The nighttime was incredibly peaceful and we woke to the sound of a Bald Eagle within the estuary.
