Allan and his place were better than expected and the expectation was already high. To start off, Allan's place seemed like a dream, the pictures don't do it justice. Every bit of his place was surreal - from the views of the volcano and lake, the gorgeous room itself, or the outdoor shower with a couple tree frogs hanging out in the small outdoor pond. At Allan's place you definitely feel one with nature. As far as Allan as our host - he was welcoming, friendly and courteous. He ensured we had everything we could possibly need when we checked in. He joined us for dinner and lunch a couple times and showed us the great places to eat since he knew everyone in the area (take his advice, the food is amazing). He even helped us find people to drive us around to different places each day since we were dropped off to birdsong on day 1. Overall, the experience was beyond excellent and I can only recommend someone else try it themselves.

The view from BirdSong can't be exaggerated, it's absolutely breath taking. Although I would expect no-less after the drive up to the house; 4x4 is absolutely required...I wouldn't want to make the drive in the rain, or the dark. The house wasn't as clean as I would have preferred. I understand it's the jungle so bugs are inevitable but there were also stains on the bed sheets and a weird odor from the fridge. I don't want to discourage your stay - we had a wonderful time waking up to the view every morning, but I wish I had been prepared for a bit more of a "rustic" stay. Also be advised that if you're not renting the entire house there isn't much separation between the units, especially when windows are open 24-7. It ruined our romantic vibe a bit when a family checked into the lower unit and joined us for breakfast on the patio at our level. Lack of privacy for sure.

What an amazing place to stay! Full panoramic views of Arenal volcano and the rolling hills surrounding, herds of horses, Toucans, and countless other species of birds, this place truly lived up to it's name: "Birds Song". Allan even includes binoculars. If you are on the fence about booking upstairs vs. downstairs, upstairs is definitely the way to go. Easily one of the coolest places I have stayed at on Airbnb and worth every penny. Aside from the views, which were AMAZING, the bed was extremely comfortable, the tv was large, the outdoor shower was awesome, and the jacuzzi was a really nice touch- especially during afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Breakfast was on point. Filling and well-prepared right on our patio. Would be an exceptional choice for honeymooners, families, or even solo travelers looking for a slice of luxury in Costa Rica. 10/10 - will definitely be back. Allan is the man! While you are there, be sure to check out Kelly's restaurant for some really great and inexpensive food options.

Wow! What an amazing place. We had such a great time. Allan met us as soon as we arrived and showed us around. We had questions about what we wanted to do and where to go, so we had Allen join us for dinner and help us out! He helped us pick an amazing zip line through the rainforest (Sky) and walking bridges tour (also Sky), then a trip to the Los Lagos hot springs. The next day he told us about a hike up the Cerro Chato volcano which was followed by a visit to a different hot springs. By day three, our bodies were tired, so Allan helped us book morning yoga on the observation deck with Melissa followed by massages on the porch! Toss in Fabrissio's tasty breakfasts, the view that never got old, and oh so so so many beautiful birds and flowers... it was the perfect start to our first visit to Costa Rica!

Allan's place was a very special stop in our trip to Costa Rica. We stayed there for two nights and we really enjoyed it. The house is high in the Valley facing the Arenal Volcano and I think I am fair if I say that the views from the room and his garden are one of the most impressive things I have seen. Ideally you need a 4x4 to access his property and the area. Allan was very welcoming and friendly and his tips were very helpful. One of his employees Fabricio comes every morning and cooks a simple but very nice breakfast. We found that very charming. All together a great experience, would highly recommend this place.

Wow! Wow! Wow! From the moment we booked and Allan immediately called to discuss the reservation we were wowed! The attentiveness, immediate communicate, genuine warmth and care made Allan a person we want to spend more time with. Natalia's cooking was out of this world and oh my goodness!!!! THE LOCATION!!! Bird song is a reason in itself to go to this area of the world! If you are venturing to Arsenal, YOU MUST STAY HERE! Beautiful beyond description. We will recommend to everyone we know!

Wow. Just wow!!! It's WAY more gorgeous in person. Pictures could never capture the beauty of this place!!! Allan is such gracious host and is a joy to talk with. We had such a great time hanging out with him!! He helped us spot a beautiful toucan from the window.. The outdoor shower was fantastic....the whole place is beyond words. El Castillo is a gorgeous town and close to everything while still being private and removed from the hustle and bustle. Just perfect. Stop looking and stay here. You'll be glad you did.
