Services & Pricing
Many of our bird parents are excited when they searched for " bird boarding near me" and found us! Our main offering is exclusive bird boarding services in our Hotel and Spa for birds. What wouldn't fit better to our establishment than the "Parrot Limo". The Parrot Limo has become a very sought for service in the last couple of years, and we have many boarding and day care guests arriving at the Hotel in style. Our Bird Hotel Shop has developed beautifully, where we carry all sorts of toys and the most common brands of pellets like Zupreem and Roudybush. Birdie day care services are growing in popularity and no matter what the circumstances are with your feathered friend(s), we have over 170 beautiful cages in all shapes and sizes available for stays of one night or one year. Besides bird boarding, we do offer expert grooming packages for the feathery community to keep mind, spirit and feathers together. We also administer medication and supplements upon request for a nominal fee.
Hotel & Spa
Unlike traditional bird sitting services, we want all our feathered guests to enjoy a unique and sophisticated Resort and Spa experience as they chirp, squawk or chat with new feathered friends and our team, while on their well deserved vacation. We’re flexible in all special requests/needs, and make sure the interior decorations of every vacation castle is customized to the taste of our distinguished bird guests. Linens, towels and blankets are available to make the nights more comfortable, and we never forget to leave a treat on the perch before we turn the lights off.

Day care services qualify when the check-in and check-out is the same day
within regular business hours.

For our guests traveling with their own castle
For the smaller birds we give you the option to bring your own cage. We encourage this decision for whatever reason.
We all know that birds poop a lot. Thats what they do! Depending on the perch lay out in their cages the perches will be dirty at times.
For long term boarders we do clean the cages regularly and for the short termers we give the cages a complimentary wipe off before sending them home. A courtesy wipe off so to speak. We love to do this, and it makes us happy to see the little chirpers going home in a clean cage.
We will not accept any extremely dirty or broken cages. It is our discretion to reject a cage not living up to our standard.
We have high standards of cleanliness and sanitation to prevent potential bacterial infections and/or unwanted smells. We have seen it all!
We do not accept cages with:
- inches of dried on bird poop on cage bars and perches
- rotten or moth infested food
- broken cage bars or cage bottoms ( cage must be functional and secure)
If for any reason we feel compelled to deep clean your cage we will charge a cage cleaning fee of $35.
Absolutely unacceptable or
subject to our cage cleaning fee of $ 35

Super Long Term Boarding
Long Term boarding is a topic which frequently comes up with our customers. There are times and situations in life where we cannot take care of our beloved feathered friends and need to look for an option to bridge some time until the dust has settled again. Let it be a temporary re-location for work, remodeling of the home, an injury or surgery, or because life just gives us the opportunity to travel for a while. Unless you have a friend or a family member who can provide adequate care for your bird(s), we offer the perfect solution with our "Super Long-Term Boarding" program. We are set up to give your bird(s) the home away from home for a maximum of 1 year. You don't have to relinquish ownership and you can visit your bird(s) anytime during business hours if your schedule permits. If out of the country, you are more than welcome to check in frequently and we send you updates per social media or What's App.
We cannot do this for free, but we have special rates for this program depending on the size of bird and cage. We ask for a credit card on file and a pre-payment of 3 - 6 month depending on the length of stay.
For more information, please contact us.

Sustainability is not a Service. It is a Mindset!
We in the San Francisco Bird Hotel are consciously making an effort to do the right thing. It is in our best interest to reduce our small business carbon footprint. We are concerned about the environment and try to implement new ideas with conscious thought and purpose. Of course this is not easy and so we decided do the best we can.
Here are our best practices:
Our guests might not drink that much but they do have the option. They also enjoy taking a bath in their water bowl - everything is allowed. We change our feathered guest's water twice a day but we don't just jug it down the drain. We strain the water, free it from any debris and give it to our plants in the front yard. We love our sunflowers!
Our guests love to read, shred and soil the newspaper inlays in their castles. We change the paper every morning. Newspaper is recyclable. Bird poop on the other hand has too much acid content and has to go into regular landfill trash. We contacted our local trash company's chemical department and so since 2015 we put the soiled newspaper into the compost bins along with the food waste our guests produce when they don't eat everything. We are quite happy to contribute to the local compost program.
We stopped buying bottled water. Our human team agreed to use their drinking bottles and we have a general 5 Gallon jug in the kitchen so everyone can help themselves. Plastic bottles are the number one polluters of our oceans and represent the biggest threat to all fish and water creatures. While it's almost impossible to avoid plastic we prefer to buy glass bottles,which are recyclable, when we have the option.
For our Squawk & Play ™ events we use plastic cups and plastic cutlery and we wash them after our events so (unless something breaks) it can be used again.
My personal concern for mother earth is the trash we produce. Our streets, parks and freeways are extremely littered and so in my spare time I go and pick up trash along the beaches, parks and our own front yard. The San Francisco Bird Hotel is working on a local initiative to sponsor a trash pick up day in conjunction with the city of South San Francisco. Stay tuned on this subject !
