“Amazing Views!”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2012

We loved this place! The views from the villa were simply amazing- the lake, volcano, and rain forest can all be seen from the large glass windows on 3 sides of the villa. A short hike away is a small waterfall. The villa is in a remote location but that is part of the charm. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching toucans, other exotic birds, and monkeys in the early morning. The host, Allan, was very helpful in suggesting tours and activities. The only downside was construction going on during our stay, but now there is a nice covered patio with two hammocks.

My fiance and I, along with 4 friends, stayed at Bird Song for three nights this past May. The accommodations were fantastic, and the views second to none. We were certainly spoiled waking up to magnificent views of both the volcano and Lake arenal, continuing to enjoy them over a delicious breakfast each morning. Allan was truly a great host, arranging a number of our excursions when we arrived, suggesting several great restaurants to enjoy (including Racho Margot), and taking us on a great hike down to the refreshing waterfall on his property. We would all recommend Bird Song if you're looking for a tranquil spot off the beaten path. With the main town a 20 minute drive away, we were always close enough to all the planned activities. I would certainly stay at Bird Song again!

“Rave review”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2012

My parents, my wife, and my 8 year old daughter (and our tiny dog cookie) just returned from a 6 night stay at BirdSongarenal. It was everything that was advertised and more. There is a new deck (not shown in the photos currently on the site) perched out on the end of the front yard that if you do not find spectacular, you are surely brain-dead. Allan was a perfect host, and his parrot (Lori) was there to entertain each morning as well. We rested in the two hammocks that are available right outside the upstairs unit,(We rented both units) and were throughly pleased with the comfort and isolation that BirdSongarenal represents. You must find a moment to get there and chill out. To not do so is purely sinful.

“The Real Deal”

Reviewed 18 Dec 2011

360 views that are these pics, no airbrushing...If this is not enough, Allan and his staff will go out of there way to make your stay exactly what you want. They are passionate about what they do and it shows. In walking distance is arenal national park, Arenal lake (and great Kite Surfing) and allan can arrange it all. Loved it

“Amazing Lake and Volcano Views”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2011

My 2 sons (18 and 20) and I spent 4 days at allan Rudick's Birdsong Villa. What a wonderful experience. The incredible lake and volcano views are just that. When you wake in the morning, if lying on your back in bed, as you open your eyes you are looking right at arenal volcano through the huge glass windows. Roll your head left and you are overlooking the lake. You will not get this in La Fortuna. Bed is very comfortable too. No a/c necessary, lake and mountains keep it cool.Allan's genuine consideration for his guests and Odelies cooking (love the bananas at breakfast)are the X-factor. He makes you right at home from the moment you shake his hand. Its like you have traveled to stay with a family member. He will give you as much privacy as you want or hang out with you like a friend staying in his house. He is great for advice and will help you with whatever you need. It is probably best to have a car if staying here if you wish to tour. If you need rides, Bernardo was very accomidating - Allan will hook you up. Visit Pizza John's once and chat with him. Horse back riding/waterfall hike with Charlie (5 minute walk from birdsong) was alot of fun. There is also a hike right out the front door to a very private and romantic 15 ft waterfall with a swimming hole. The pictures are a little old. The walkways are all lined with beautiful flowers and butterfly bushes. Butterflies every day. We saw monkeys twice and one morning there were 6 toucans in the trees. There is also a volcano/wildlife observation deck at the base of the property where I had my morning coffee in search animal life. The view from Birdsong is nothing but nature and very peaceful. Allan also likes to call his guests before arival so his communication is excellent.

“Birdsong is a great mountain hideaway - Views, plus hospitality!”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2011

We spent three nights at Birdsong in Castillo and very much enjoyed our stay. We rented the top floor, and alan Rudick provided bedding for our three kids while we slept in the queen. The views are as advertised - among the most beautiful in the world - full view of arenal, Lake arenal, and more. If you go, make use of alan's cook Odelay - local Tico woman that cooked breakfast (included) and dinners for us ($10 per adult, $5 per child). All were outstanding tico style food, more than we could ask for. Alan was more than a great host, taking us on a jungle hike to the waterfall, taking our kids on aTV rides, and introducing us to Rancho Margo, all without charging any guide fees. Alan truly cares what his guests think, and invests his time to make sure you have a great stay. His caring makes up for any discomfort at first when you realize that you are staying in the home he lives in (he stayed downstairs during our stay). We highly recommend Birdsong, for the location, the views, the house, the cooking, and for our host. Thank you alan! The Wrights

“Amazing Views, friendly & helpful people!!”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2011

We had an amazing time at Bird Song. The views of the rainforest, volcano, and lake are indescribable, you have to see it for yourself to believe it! Very peaceful & relaxing B & B. The owner is very accomodating & will help you with any problems or questions you have about the area and things do to nearby. The home cooked meals were delicious. A bit of a drive up the mountain to get there, but it was well worth it. Highly recommended! We hope to go back again someday.

“Peace and Tranquility!”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2010

My boyfriend and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation! We wanted to relax and rejuvenate over spring break and that is exactly what we did! The B&B; is situated in the most beautiful area with a million dollar view in every direction. Front and center 24/7 was the very active volcano! It was amazing! The food was delicious. The owner, cleaning lady and cook were friendly, helpful, private and understanding of our needs. We will definitely be back!
