You don't need to leave the yard to experience Pura Vida in Costa Rica. As you sit out on the observation deck and the sunshine warms your skin, close your eyes and listen to the melody of the birds and howler monkeys, all set against the rushing waters of the Piedras Negras River and nearby waterfalls.

Arenal Birdsong Villa is located 10 minutes from the small town of El Castillo, and 30 minutes from the large town of La Fortuna.
We recommend that you rent a 4 wheeled drive SUV when you stay at Birdsong. The lane to the villa is very "rugged". Vamos Car Rental is our preferred rental agency.

The description and pictures were spot on! If you're looking for a tranquil place to get away from the craziness of life this is where you want to be. There's a waterfall within hiking distance and you have an incredible view of the lake and volcano. Kelly (the house manager) was extremely friendly and accommodating.
The only thing is that the roads to get to the house are a bit challenging as we had a small sedan but still doable and worth it seeing as the property is in the jungle!
Allen was a wonderful host, he was very accommodating and knowledgable about the area. Allen made all our reservations for us. He was very helpful with directions and estimated times to our destinations. His property is absolutely gorgeous with amazing views when the clouds subside.
Alan was a great host, he made us feel very welcome with his relaxed attitude.
We really enjoined Alan's company he was very helpful with information for activities.
Allan had excellent communication with us before our trip and during our stay. He greeted us upon our arrival with information regarding the area. The outdoor surroundings were beautiful and we saw a lot of wildlife in terms of colorful birds each morning. We also enjoyed a hike down to a waterfall right on the property! Although the breakfast included local fruit and homemade food, it was served late daily. The indoor accommodations had everything we needed, but it could have been less cluttered with personal items. The location was wonderful and we were near a lot of local attractions off the grid, such as zip lining, horseback riding and the hot springs. Allan was excellent in offering us information for all that we were interested in doing. The community was wonderful and we look forward to visiting the area again! ~Justin & Justine
Couldn't be happier about my stay at Allan's in the El Castillo/Fortuna area. The property and views are truly as amazing as they appear in images. Allan is an ideal host- great communication, full of recommendations, and super laid-back and friendly. I only had a few days here, but I will definitely be staying here again when I return to CR next. It's an ideal place to stay when visiting this area- located directly in the beautiful nature, just minutes away from all of the attractions.
My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Costa Rica for our Honeymoon. La Fortuna was a nice break from the brutal heat of the Pacific coast where we spent a majority to our trip. The house was absolutely perfect and the landscape and backdrop of Lake Arenal and the volcano we just breathtaking. Allan was a wonderful and very accommodating host (and fast friend!!). Upon arrival he helped us book all our excursions for the upcoming days and made our dinner reservations. We absolutely highly recommend you dine at Tres Cabras just down the road. The food and dining experience were exceptional. I consider myself to be somewhat well traveled. I easily put this place in my Top 5 Dining experiences in the WORLD!!! We loved it so much we ate there all three nights.
The drive to Allan's is horrible, very bumpy with unpaved roads. But, it is honestly well worth the drive. We highly recommend this place!!
Allan's house is amazing, in the Middle of the jungle, right front of the arenal volcano. The view is stunning!
The house is just as the pictures, very clean and the bed is so comfortable!
Allan is such a great host, he knows the area very well and know the good things to do. He booked for us a massage (at blue lagoon) and the rafting as well.
We went to the restaurant las tres cabras just next too the house. I do recommend it it was very nice and the organic food is great! Thanks Allan !!!!!!
