Hotel California Purple Martin Birdhouse
The fabulous Hotel California is now available to your backyard purple martins. This ten-room, fully functional birdhouse is inspired by the main pavilion of the iconic Del Coronado Hotel.
A San Diego landmark, the "Del" has welcomed Presidents, royalty and Hollywood celebrities for over 100 years. This version for birds features the same dramatic Victorian design with its signature red roof and peek-a-boo dormers, topped off with a cupola proudly flying an American flag.
Durable wood construction with all-weather paint, pine shingled roof and poly-resin accents. Ventilation and drainage holes create a healthy habitat. Exterior grade plyboard for the walls, floor and underlying roof board.
This architectural birdhouse comes equipped with a mounting base with a sleeve for setting on top of a standard 4 x 4 base (not included).

Care and Maintenance
To preserve your birdhouse's finish, we recommend applying a UV-rated, polyurethane finishing seal made for marine use. Be sure to choose a finish that will not discolor the paint, and reapply it each season to ensure your birdhouse's longevity.
To best attract purple martins, we recommend positioning the house near a combination of open fields and a water source. The house should be mounted at 12 to 14 feet high.
