I still think this place on Puerto Rico, where most of the island's endemics can be seen from a secluded forest canopy-covered hot tub, for a fairly cheap price, is the most surprisingly idyllic place I've ever come across :

Or (for a price of course) one of the lodges in Amazonia

I would suggest King's Island, Luxor, Egypt, formerly known as Crocodile Island.

I went in 2011 and saw Nile-valley Sunbird, Senegal Thick-Knee, Green Bee-Eater, Striated Heron, African Swamphen and Yellow-billed Kite amongst others on the island.

It was undergoing a major redevelopment when i was there and i suspect may not be the place it once was, but a 2017 trip report on Cloudbirders shows the above species still present, and watching Pied Kingfishers from the sun lounger with the sun setting over the Nile is pretty good

Looking at some of the suggestions on here you may also need to sell your children into slavery and donate a couple of your vital organs.

A trip of a lifetime that would take me at least two lifetimes to save up for.

PS to those that can afford it I am not at all bitter.......... Simply insanely jealous

I'm recently back from yet another trip to The Gambia. 2 week package with Thomas Cook B&B for 2 people = £1056= very affordable!
Local birding is excellent, particularly if you have never been to this part of the world. You can hire a guide if you want to venture further afield. Should net 100 species without leaving the local area, 200+ with a couple of trips is easy to get.
For more info I have just completed my blog.
