If you're only gone four days, she'll most likely be fine. You might have a few extra treats available for her caregivers to feed her, and perhaps a new toy or two to keep her busy.
Is there a t.v. or radio in her room? Maybe if she has music or children's shows to watch she won't be quite so bored and lonely.
Enjoy your vacation!

Additional question on this topic, would it be more or less disruptive for our new (to us, 1 year old, we will have had him 3 weeks) friend to take him with us to the beach in a travel cage, or leave him at the house with our house sitter? The house sitter would pay attention to him but more than likely would not get him out for the week. We would get him out and he would have the family but he would not be in his home environment.

I always used to take Shah with me when I went away. He was sometimes a bit difficult to deal with - you had to know exactly why he was screaming - it was either, food, water, scritches, play time or bedtime. Once you can figure out that, there isnt a problem. I dont go away anymore as it would disrupt the animals too much (especially His Royal Highness). I would be inclined to take him but others may disagree with me.

That question is not easy to answer regarding any individual bird. They're all different when it comes to things that stress them. I have a cockatiel now, and have had other birds in the past that loved travel in the car. They also had no troubles being in travel cages, or smaller cages that we took on vacation. Because of that, if we traveled by car the birds came with us. Our birds that haven't traveled well got to stay home. We just chose whatever was easiest for them, and us.
Now, with 3 birds, we don't take them with us on vacation. Our next door neighbor knows our birds well though, and she loves coming to take care of them, so it's not a problem for us to go away.
