"Natasha took care of our bird for 3 months and we couldn't have been happier with how well he was looked after. We got email updates with photos, all of our questions were answered promptly and our bird came back happy, healthy and potty trained! Working in the film industry, we are always in need of someone with Natasha's expertise and it makes us feel very safe to know we can turn to her. She sincerely cares. We wouldn't use anyone else!"
David and Alisen Richmond-Peck.
"Leaving my parrot for 4 months was a difficult decision. Fortunately, I found Natasha's Bird Oasis. Not only was Billi wonderfully looked after, but he was nurtured and loved. I returned home to a happy, healthy bird. Thank you, Natasha."
Pat and Billi
"We had our beloved cockatoo Rona with Natasha for three weeks past summer. First we went to see Natasha and brought Rona to meet her. We were very impressed - Natasha's place was very clean, the other parrots in her care seemed healthy and happy, and above all Natasha was very gentle with our "baby". She approached her slowly and waited for Rona to get comfortable before handling her. Even though we didn't know Natasha prior to our first visit we felt good about leaving our pet with her. During our absence we were in touch with Natasha via e-mail and she even took a video of Rona playing, for us to see that she is doing well. The rate was comparable to other pet sitters but you cannot put a price on peace of mind which we enjoyed knowing Rona is in good hands. Next time we need a sitter we will definitely entrust our pet to Natasha's care."
Phil and Hana
"I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent care you provided for my two budgies while I was away on vacation during May 2010. I appreciated your thoroughness and attention to detail, from picking up and dropping off the birds, to caring for them in your home. I would not hesitate to use your services again or recommend you to others. Thanks again."
"The best bird boarding service in Toronto, hands-down. We travel frequently and we have finally found a home for Synta when we are away. Natasha is always so helpful and accommodating.
I think Synta wants us to go away real soon."
"Natasha’s Bird Oasis is a really wonderful ‘home way from home’ for our chatty and social parrot. Natasha is a true bird lover and very committed to ensuring our African Grey gets the attention she needs. We are very happy with the service provided by Natasha.”
Dave and Lilli
"I used Natasha's Bird Oasis last Christmas vacation for one week and was very pleased. My cockatiel Elbie looked happy and relaxed when I picked him up. Natasha is a nice and caring person, and she keeps a tidy house. I will definitely be using her services again."
"Our Markus (African Grey) spent two weeks with Natasha in the cheerful company of 3 cocatiels and one budgie, where he could always enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables, out of cage time and close attention throughout the day. We were happy to see Markus back in good shape and spirits. We can recommend Natasha’s services to anybody who needs to leave their fids when traveling. Thanks again for taking care of him!"
"I boarded my budgie in July 2011 for one week. I met with Natasha and was very comfortable leaving Laura in her care. Natasha introduced Laura to treats of green pepper and romaine lettuce, I received a picture that is now a screen saver on my blackberry. Laura is returning to Natasha's care in August for another vacation. I certainly recommend Natasha's Bird Oasis services to others as my experience has been more than expected."
"I was very nervous when I first boarded Brandy. He is a 25 (now 26!) year old cockatiel who lost his mate a few years ago. He was lonely and often depressed, forgetting to eat when left alone, and spending most of the day "on pause". He needed stimulation and cuddling. Add to that, he'd lost his mate when he was last boarded (not with Natasha). What I was looking for was someone who both knew how to handle birds, and who would sincerely care about Brandy and take care of his emotional needs. Natasha went beyond my expectations. She placed Brandy's cage in a position where he would be part of the 'action', even if it meant her living room! She emailed me the evening I dropped off Brandy to assure me he was okay. She updated me by email and sent me photos. When I came to pick Brandy up, he was more alive than before. He had made friends with her birds and didn't want to come home! I am grateful to Natasha for her caring, and for her continued concern for Brandy. I have no hesitation in recommending her and I encourage you to discuss your worries (if you have any) so that Natasha can help put your mind at ease as she did mine. If you would like to contact me as a reference, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org."
"I brought Kiwi my Goldies Lorikeet to stay with Natasha for a few days. I was very pleased with her service and Kiwi was well taking care of. I will definitely be using Natasha's bird sitting again. Her place was very clean and I like the way her own birds were housed and cared for. I could tell she loves birds.
Thank you for taking care of my Kiwi."
"While we were away on vacation for a week, our english budgie, "BANJO", received first class care from Natasha at his very first "home away from home". We had never left our bird with anyone before, but upon meeting Natasha, we knew by her questions and great attention to the details of our budgie's care, that he would be in good hands. Although we didn't ask, she e-mailed us every few days with updates and pictures of Banjo having a GREAT time (he certainly didn't seem to miss us! See the happy grey budgie playing ball with her cockatiel in the pictures) with Natasha and some other feathered friends. We are very glad to have found Natasha's Bird Oasis as a place to bring our budgie for our future trips! Natasha truly cares for her birds, and we would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks so much Natasha!"
Banjo and Family!
"Thank you so much again for taking such a good care of our Goffin's cockatoo, Zeus! We had the total peace of mind while away that Zeus is in the best hands, is well cared for, loved and not lacking in anything. Your knowledge and love for birds is obvious and very reassuring. Going so much out of your ways to make his stay comfortable was a real pleasant surprise to us and definitely made Zeus happier! Since we travel frequently, we are really glad to have finally found a real second home for Zeus! Thank you again."
Julianna, Ingo and Zeus
"We left our three pet birds with Natasha while on a 6-day vacation in May 2011. From the time we met her to discuss the nutritional and accommodation requirements of our birds, Natasha exhibited a high degree of interest and concern about the health and welfare of the birds so that she would be able to provide them with the best care possible. All areas of concern were addressed and fully discussed and followed up on during the time the birds were in her care. Her personal care and genuine love of the birds were obvious and made our leaving them with her a pleasure and not just a business agreement. We have dealt with other bird sitters, and we can safely say that we would recommend Natasha without reservation to anyone looking for a dedicated individual who truly loves the birds entrusted to her care. Thank you, Natasha."
Jean and Charlie
"Mike and I really wanted to express how happy we were with your services. As you know we have never left our birds with anyone and I was having a very hard time with this, after meeting you the first time I felt you had such a calm energy. I had visited a few places offering boarding for birds and were feeling very discouraged until I met you, your place was clean and the birds you were boarding all looked happy and well taken care of. It was really nice when we were away to receive email updates and even a pictures of our babies, I loved hearing how Kiwi and Mango liked to go on little walks on your shoulder around the house. Mike and I would like to thank you for the excellent care you provided and will definitely be using your services again, we can now go on vacation and know our babies are in good hands."
"Needing a bird boarder last minute, and having called a bunch in the Toronto area, we decided upon Natasha's Bird Oasis after speaking with her a couple times. She seemed very genuine and honest over the phone.
We brought our Senegal Parrot Tuna to stay with her for a weekend, and by the time we left after dropping him off, he was very happy and stepping right up to her and talking. I knew when we left he would be just fine. We came to pick him up and he was very content and seemed like had had a great weekend with her, and his cage and playstand were both spotless. Natasha even took the time to send us a couple text messages over the weekend updating us on Tuna. We were very impressed and used her services a couple weeks later, and will be definitely using her services again soon. Thanks Natasha."
Jon, Julia and Tuna the Senegal
"I was initially a bit anxious about leaving my bird at someone else's home. However, I was pleased to see that Natasha's home appeared very clean and organized. There were no cats, dogs or small children that one might worry about when leaving one's bird. Since she has birds of her own, she understands the care required. Natasha was very responsible and provided proper care to my bird. She is also quite easy to reach (ie: answers the phone and returns calls) which is very reassuring. I would use Natasha's Bird Oasis services again--and would highly recommend to others. Thank you, Natasha!"
"Since we brought home our baby budgies 2 years ago, we have never let them out of our sight. But we had to this week due to some heavy duty work that was being done at our house. Initially, we were very nervous to leave our babies at a bird care for the first time but as soon as we met Natasha, we instantly felt comfortable.
We left our babies at Natasha’s for a couple of days. Her place was very warm and welcoming, and our budgies felt at home at once. Our birds were allowed to fly around, talk & play with Natasha’s birds and were taken care of very well. Natasha took care of our birds as she would take care of hers. She hand-fed them with food and water just like we do at home. Bird Oasis is a great place for those who are looking to board their lovable feathered friends."
Nisha and Ram
"When I took my budgie Casey to meet and greet Natasha I was greatly impressed by her calm and loving approach to birds. Casey's stay was a wonderful experience. During the time that Casey was at Natasha's, I was very confident that he was being well cared for. Casey is already looking forward to his next visit. I highly recommend Natasha's Bird Oasis to all bird lovers."
"From the moment we stepped inside and handed over Yoshi we knew he was in great hands. We had never left Yoshi with anyone else before and he is a notoriously owner-attached bird who doesn't usually like strangers...but that didn't seem to apply to you. We were thrilled to see that Yoshi took an immediate liking to you, and we felt confident leaving him in your hands while we were away.
We found Yoshi to be in great spirits upon our return and thank you for the wonderful care you took of him. It was also a great comfort to receive your periodic email updates as to what Yoshi was up to. We definitely recommend your services to anyone and we will definitely be back."
Jamie and Sandra
"When the pet store where I boarded my cockatiel, Gracie, for many years closed its doors, I wasn’t sure where to turn for good care. Fortunately, I found Natasha, a knowledgeable, caring bird lover whose home truly is a “bird oasis”. Gracie was treated with love and kindness, and all his needs were looked after. He had lots of company and daily opportunities for exercise. Natasha is a professional in all respects. Gracie thrived under her care and I’ll certainly be using her excellent bird boarding services again!"
"This past Christmas, I boarded my cockatiel Phoenix with Natasha at the Bird Oasis for the first time. I would recommend Natasha's Bird Oasis to anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable and reliable bird boarding provider. Natasha not only knows birds, she's also a genuinely caring person who takes the "people needs" to heart as well as the bird needs. That to me is the mark of an above-average bird boarder. Without a doubt, Phoenix will enjoy future holidays at the Bird Oasis. And I will sleep easy knowing he couldn't have a better home away from home. Thank you Natasha!"
"Just wanted to say again how grateful I was for you taking Hunter in for the Holidays, he had such a great time and i think he would love to come back for another visit. I have to say I was a little nervous to leave Hunter for the 7 days, but when I got back I could tell he had a wonderful time and even found himself a girlfriend. I am thinking of another short trip in March and I will surely feel comfortable in using you again, and I think Hunter would love to see you again. I loved how you kept in Contact via text and to send me pictures of him while he was with you, that truly had me feeling great knowing he was at the right place for his vacation.
I wanted to thank you again and look forward to our next visit real soon."
"When Rob and I decided to go visit family for a week over the Christmas Holidays, I was a little worried about leaving our cockatiel Lillian. We have used other boarders but decided to try out Natasha's Bird Oasis. I could not have been happier with the way things went. Natasha was kind and incredibly knowledgable. It was apparent that Lillian was in very capable hands. The Bird Oasis is clean and friendly and all the birds in Natasha's care are happy and healthy. Natasha updated us on Lillian's care while we were away so I was able to relax and enjoy my holiday. Lillian enjoyed herself and I got back a happy bird when we returned. I have had other experiences where Lillian came back biting and angry. Lillian will definitely be taking her next vacation at Natasha's Bird Oasis. Thank you Natasha for all your hard work!"
Rob and Elizabeth
"From my first encounter with Natasha when I visited her home without my birds I knew I was making the right decision. Her demeanor with her own birds and her ensuring I washed my hands before handling them made me feel confident my own would be well taken care of. When she picked them up at my home she wanted to make sure they were warm and comfy. Throughout my time away Natasha sent me photos of Joey, Venus and Serena showing how happy and content they were. When she dropped them off they were well adjusted and happy which isn't always the case when boarding birds! Natasha shows a genuine interest and affection in the feather babies she looks after and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to leave their birds with her."
"Shorty, Dusty, Moose and Daisy (my four budgies) were incredibly well looked after with the attentive care of Natasha. I heartily recommend Natasha for wonderful care your birds."
"I needed a bird boarder last minute for my baby conure and have decided upon Natasha's Bird Oasis after speaking with her a couple times. She seemed genuine, honest and real bird lover. I trusted my conure with her while I was away and my bird seemed happy and content when I returned from my short trip. Natasha also took the time to send me a couple text messages over the weekend updating me on my birdie. I will be definitely using her services again. Thanks Natasha."
"I want to thank you Natasha for sending me pictures of Bosie while she was staying with you. I can't tell you how much it meant to be able to see her doing well while I was many miles away. I also appreciated your following up after she came home to see how she was doing - that was very thoughtful."
"My little Senegal, Yoda, just spent her first week at Natasha's Bird Oasis. She started chirping the minute she arrived there, and judging from the photo Natasha texted to me, she had a fabulous time the whole week. I could tell from my visit that Natasha's birds are all well cared for and happy, and they really enjoy the environment. I will not hesitate to bring Yoda back to Natasha's the next time we are planning to travel."

"Our experience with Natasha was very good. She gave us constant updates on how Leo was doing while we were away. Leo came home happy and healthy."
Andre and Marissa
"...I am very lucky to have found Natasha. She is a bird lover, and cares deeply about the birds in her care.
My Starling "Bella" is like a baby and requires lots of attention and I was very worried that nobody but myself could take care of her (and keep her happy). Natasha and Bella connected and Bella is happy and fine at Natashas bird oasis. Natasha is very professional in her business and keep me updated with emails, text, video, pics and that gives me peace of mind that Bella is happy and well cared for..."
Stefani, bird mom :) and business traveller
"It is often difficult to find a service that has that extra special element that you look for when entrusting someone with the care of your beloved pet(s). I recently discovered Natasha's Bird Oasis and was very satisfied with the service that was provided. The facility was clean and overall it was a healthy stimulating environment for my two lovebirds, the dynamic duo. I was most delighted with the knowledge of their caregiver, Natasha, who was willing to share helpful tips and suggestions, always keeping the welfare of the birds as the priority. I will certainly place Natasha's Bird Oasis on my 'Favorites' list."
I want to say thank you for taking care of our little baby Nemo (Qauker Parrot). My wife and I was very scared/skeptic to leave him with someone else, but you made us feel at ease and i like the constant updates and pics you send all the time. You took good care of Nemo and he is very happy. We will definitely bring Nemo back! thank you :-)"
"My cockatiel Rico was in Natasha's care for a few days. Rico was extremely well cared for. Natasha gives Rico and the other boarding birds just as much care and attention as she does to her own birds. Most of all, she is very knowledgeable and has given me invaluable advice on how to train and care for my own."
"My Alex was very happy staying at Natasha's bird oasis. She was there for over two months and didn't have a single issue. Natasha is great with her and would always send me updates via email with pictures which was really great. Her prices are competitive ...I would recommend her to anyone looking to board their bird for short or long periods. Thanks Natasha!"
"Natasha took care of our birds as if they were her own. She was very caring and accomodating to our birds' needs. Periodic updates were sent by email to brief our birds' well being. For our next vacation, we will definitely call Natasha again."
Anthony and Ayami
"I boarded my two birds (lovebird & green cheek conure) at Natasha’s Bird Oasis for 8 days in July 2012. I had never boarded my birds anywhere and was very nervous at first. As soon as I met Natasha and saw her place I knew that my birds would be in good hands. She’s extremely knowledgeable and her place is very clean. What I really liked was that she sent me updates and pictures of my babies while I was away. When I picked my birds up they were in great spirits and did not look stressed at all. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone who is going away, I don’t think your birds would get all the attention that Natasha gives from anywhere else!
Thanks for looking after Peachie and Zeus!"
"Charlie, our 5 month old conure, was taken care of at Natasha's bird oasis while we were away on holidays. We all felt that he received outstanding care while we were away. Charlie came back to us healthy, happy, and seemed to have no problems settling back into his usual routine. We will definitely use her services again without hesitation. Thank you."
Rob, Rachael, Alexandra, and Charlie.
"We left our two birds - Lucky and Rainbow - with Natasha at the Bird Oasis for 8 days in July 2012 and are very happy with the care that they received. Natasha is obviously a bird lover and gave our birds excellent care while they were with her. She sent us updates on the birds along with pictures, which was a really nice touch. We are going away at the end of August and we will definitely be using Natasha to watch our birds again.
Thank you very much for your professional service and a safe environment for our birds."
Mike and Maia
"Kiwi and Casper haven't been with anyone else so I wasn't sure how they would react and I would be away for about a month. I could see Natasha had a natural way with birds when they first met her. She is very knowledgeable and safety conscious. Casper learned a new chirp and Kiwi learned a new trick. I know they will love it when they go back. I would highly recommend Natasha for bird sitting or just to give your birds a treat. Thank you Natasha!"
"I recently left my son's budgie Yoric with Natasha for a week, while we were away on vacation. Natasha's prices were about the same as other bird sitters but I picked her because I didn't want little Yoric to get lonely. I certainly made the right choice. Natasha is a real bird lover, and there were lots of other birds there to keep our budgie company. Yoric was excited and happy from the moment I dropped him of, and Natasha even gave me some useful new tips about budgie care. Thanks."
"I used Natsha's Bird Oasis during my 5 days vacation. It's really amazing, my parrot and love bird was happy and live full during pick them. It was my wife and daughter concern that if she is the right person to take care. Natasha is real bird lover as well as bird sitter. Now no confusion, our family will love to keep them again in any occasion even if it is for a month or two."
"I was very nervous to leave my baby Cooky (cockateil) with someone. This was my first time. As soon as I met Natasha I knew my Cooky is in great hands. She loves birds and knows how to best take care of them. Her Oasis is fabulous and neat and clean. Every time my Cooky goes to the Oasis he comes back singing and whistling.
If you want to go for vacation or a business trip and are worried where to bring your bird to board, Natasha Bird Boarding is the place to go. You will have the peace of mind that your pet bird is doing fine. Thanks Natasha!"
Sam and Joelle
"Natasha's bird oasis definitely provides my little guy with the attention and care he needs so I can always be worry free while on vacation. I've used a number of boarding facilities in the past and it is quite clear that Natasha's professionalism and care sets her facility apart from the competition. I would certainly recommend her services to anyone who is looking for boarding."
"Natasha you have taken wonderful care of our birds. We really appreciate what you have done for us, and will come back to your boarding hotel for our next vacation. Thank you so much especially for getting them used to the pellets!"
"I took my two budgies to Natasha Bird Oasis for the first time in October. I did not know what to expect and was quite worried about my two budgies leaving me. From the moment my budgies and I stepped into Natasha's place, we were greeted with warmth and care. Natasha listened very attentively when I explained my budgies daily routine. She was very gentle to my budgies and tried to make them feel comfortable. When I left Natasha's place, I knew my birdies were in good hand. I got an email from her while I was away. The email really allows me to enjoy the rest of my trip without worrying. After I picked them up after the trip, Natasha even sent me an email to see how my birdies are doing. I am impressed and won't hesitate to take my birdies back to Natasha next time when I am going away."
"My husband and I were planning vacations and were very concerned to whom leave our lovely parrots, we adopted them this year and they are not tame yet which makes the getting back to the cage very complicated. We wanted to leave them with someone who has experience with parrots and very patient and we consulted a couple of boarding for parrots.
Natasha always replies promptly by email and was very reassuring, when we dropped them she was waiting for us and asked many questions of their behaviors and personality, showing interest on their particularities. When we were on vacations she sent us a picture of them and updates which was absolutely nice. When we picked them up they seem to be comfortable and the cage was perfectly clean. I can see she loves animals and gives them a lot of love. We are very happy to find Natasha and don't have to be worried each time we go away. I would definitively recommend the place and wont doubt on leaving them there next time we need.
Thank you Natasha for such a great job!"
Paola and Paul
"Natasha's Bird Oasis was awesome! Our parrotlet Rico had an amazing time, it was obvious when we took him home that he was happy and well taken care of. Natasha showed a lot of interest in learning about Rico's likes and dislikes before dropping him off. She sent us photos and movies by email to show how he was doing while we were away. Natasha's home was ultra clean and she kept his cage in the same condition as we had it when we dropped it off. This was the first time we ever used a boarder and we are extremely pleased with the whole experience. I would highly recommend Natasha to any avian fancier. This is a 5 star bird accommodation!!"
"My daughter and I were very nervous about having to board Jerry our Sun Conure. Jerry had never been boarded before and I was worried Jerry would feel abandoned by us. After a great deal of research into the best place to board Jerry, I found Natasha's Bird Oasis in Scarborough. What an amazing find. The price was very reasonable and the care Natasha provided was top notch. When we picked up Jerry, he was happy to see us and his cage was absolutely immaculate. Natasha takes her job very seriously and loves her boarders. If you want the best care available for your bird, look no further then Natasha."
Daryl Monaghan, Toronto
"Hi Natasha, Thanks again for looking after our bird, Scooter. We can tell he's spent a happy week with you while we were on vacation. He seems very relaxed and content and we would definately call you again to look after him. Thanks for handling him so much and giving him lots of out-of-cage time. Knowing Scooter was well cared for helped us to enjoy our trip more. Thank you."
“I am so glad that I found Natasha’s Bird Oasis to care for my lovebird when I travel. Natasha’s Bird Oasis is far superior to other bird care services that I have tried. Natasha is very knowledgeable and provides unique care for the individual needs of each bird. The location and cages are kept clean. The process is well organized, including pick-up and drop-off times set in advance. Natasha kept an open line of communication throughout the boarding process and let me know how my bird was doing. I did not have to worry about the care of my bird while I was away. She even followed up with my after I took my bird home.
I will definitely leave my bird again at Natasha’s Bird Oasis and recommend others to do the same.”
"Thanks very much for your terrific care and attention. As you can appreciate, I was initially apprehensive leaving them with someone I didn’t know. Once we met however, I became comfortable as I was confident they were in excellent hands. I am so happy that we found you!!
I would recommend your service without hesitation.
"Going for a vacation of 5 weeks is tough decision when you have a pet, luckily I found Natasha's Bird Oasis for my beloved sun conure - Nookie. Have to say I was impressed - The place was clean and there were other birds in her care which seemed healthy and happy, what impressed me the most was how she was with Nookie when I went to Oasis. Natasha was in touch with us the whole time and sent video and pictures of Nookie snuggling. I was at peace at heart and stress free :). Next time we need a sitter I will definitely board Nookie in the hands of Natasha."
Shailen & Raashi
"Upon his return from his vacation at Natasha's birdtique hotel, our cockatiel seemed relaxed and happy. He said that the other hotel guests made charming conversation, and that the establishment itself was top-notch. The Chirpadvisor reviews were correct, and this is one of the top bird hotels in the city. Our cockatiel immediately Tweeted his opinions on various social media outlets. Thanks."
"We were at first a bit apprehensive about leaving Trigger, our cockatiel, with someone that we had only met over the Internet. But when we finally met Natasha in person, she quickly put us at ease and we left Trigger with her for a long weekend with no worries at all. Natasha’s home is clean, bright and bird-friendly. Natasha herself is a warm and outgoing bird lover. Natasha’s own cockatiels are a clear testimonial to that !! We received daily e-mail reports complete with pictures and Trigger was in fine form when we picked her up after our trip. We are soon off for a couple of weeks in the West Indies and wouldn't think of letting anyone else look after our baby. Thanks, Natasha!!"
"This is to thank you for taking care of my Pipsie. After the 24 days she was under your care she is very happy and joyful. No question about how she loved the days she was at your loving care. I would recommend you to everybody who really loves his/her pet. Pipsie is my soul and yes, anytime when needing a temporary home for Pipsie in the future, you would be my only choice. Thank you Natasha.
Uri Sommerfeld, Toronto
"Natasha took great care of our Green Quaker, Neo. We were initially nervous because it was the first time we had to leave him with someone, but Natasha kept us at ease with emails and sent us a picture of him during his stay. He returned to us a healthy, happy and well adjusted bird."
