Where do I start? We - 5 friends - were quite frustrated from the quality of the roads and rains were not simplifying things, but as soon as we arrived to this magical place - it was like we were never tired or annoyed. The views of Arenal Volcano, lake, and cloud forest are just breath-taking. Yes, I would go...

First off, Allan was so easy to work with as well as an excellent tour guide. We loved him! Birdsong Villa was the most beautiful site we have ever seen. Absolutely breathtaking. Literally, we just stared without saying a word on multiple occasions. The property was perfectly maintained with a garden of plants and flowers in every direction. There is...

Birdsong Villa is a very special and amazing place. The home had every amenity, and then some. We loved the bathtub, the lighting, the shower and the waterfall outdoor shower. The location in El Castillo (Arenal), is just beautiful. The roads in the area are very adventurous. Kelly, the concierge, was very kind, patient and helpful. Fabricio, who came every...

Our stay at Birdsong B&B was everything we could ask for and more. Each morning we woke up to fresh made coffee and breakfast prepared by the chef.

Allen is a charming New Yorker who will offer suggestions if needed. The restaurant down the road is a small walk (don't forget your head lamps at night) withy AMAZING food. Breakfast is home cooked. May feel out of the way, but very special location and worth the 4x4 drive up!

We stayed at Birdsong a while back. I am planning another trip. Glad to hear allen is still the owner. He was very helpful.
