Birdsong Villa has the most amazing view of Arenal and waking up to all of the birds chirping was the cherry on top. Allen was a great host and the breakfast hit the spot. Per other reviews of Birdsong Villa - the house could use a deep cleaning and de-cluttering. We expected bugs since we were in the rainforest, however...

These guest were very nice people. I had a really nice time spending some time with them. There r some people who freak-out when they see bugs. In Costa Rica u are going to have some critters around no matter how much u try & keep them away. Most of my guest have very little problem with that,but there are...

The room was charming, the bed was comfortable, the grounds were beautiful, birds were plentiful, host was friendly and knowledgeable and checked in on us daily and let us know he was there if we needed anything. Breakfast was...

Fun time Allan our host very friendly and helpful. Small and clean just right for our needs! Beautiful view of Aernal Volcano. Woke up to hummingbirds out our window. Note it's quite a bumpy road and quite away up the narrow road.

First of all the good points (we rented the largest apartment at higher level). Of course, the view is astonishing, 180° from the lake on the left, to the volcano in the center and the forest on the right. We were a bit unlucky as the volcano remained hidden in clouds during all our 3 nights stay, and appeared on...

We were supposed to stay at Allan's place for three nights (we used airbnb). Beginning and preparations were great, Allan quickly responded to all my questions, called me and helped with route options from Monteverde, overall great first impression. We got to the place Monday night. It was already dark, and the electricity was out. Allan showed us the place,...

We stayed at Birdsong Villa for 2 nights during Green Season (Mid June). The road was steep up to the villa and with the rain, a 4x4 was needed. We were met by Alan, the owner who was welcoming and had so much information about the area and the things to do. It was around a 3 hour drive from...

Some experiences are just so magical that it is difficult to articulate the magnitude. From the moment I booked the room, the owner Allan was extremely helpful. I spent some time doing my research and reading reviews. I knew I was making the right decision. I arrived at the property after the sun had set, so I wasn't able to...

If you are looking for a great view of the volcano looming over the lush tropical forest this is the place to be. Although the road leading to the villa is steep and bumpy a 4x4 can negotiate the twists and turns without much problem. We stayed at the lower level, which is small for a family of 4, but...
