"We stayed here 5 nights in August with two grandkids (ages 12 &15). Others have mentioned this is on a typical Central American unpaved road which adds to the driving time but also the adventure. When we arrived it was starting to get dark and pouring rain but Nancy's directions were excellent and we found it with no problem. The house is exactly as pictured and quite roomy with AC, washer and dryer and plenty of hot water. Loss of electricity is common in this part of the world but we only had one outage for 4 - 5 hours. The morning after we arrived, we had the good luck of a visit by one of the two scarlet macaws who seem to hang out in this area. The macaw came to the balcony railing that circles the bedrooms on the 2nd floor. It's hard to imagine teenagers excited to be woken at 6 AM but the macaw did the trick and got our trip off to a good start. While here, we hiked the waterfall, visited Baldi hot springs, rapelled through waterfalls with Puretrek, and ziplined with Skytrek. All of these were a 30 - 45 minute drive away. We also visited Proyecto Asis which was a little farther but well worth the trip. We tried out Essence (very convenient 2 doors away and great since we are all vegetarians) and Pizza Johns (a short drive). This was a great property and trip. The only minor complaint was from my husband who likes to cook and so we ate in a few nights - the house needs a few good knives."

"Our vacation started off smoothly thanks to Allan. He booked all our excursions and also a driver(Louis) to pick us up at the airport and transport to excursions. The grounds were impeccable and the house was beautiful with a stunning view of rainforest, arenal lake, and arenal volcano. Our first night we paid for the chef to cook our evening meal which was delicious!! Our second night we walked to Agustino's (down the hill) and had another fantastic dinner. Our last night, we had the cook come again and we were not disappointed! Breakfast is included with your stay and Polly the parrot will join the group. We zip lined and did the river drift with Sky Trek. The next day we traveled to La Fortuna to whitewater raft with wave expedition. We had the best time and loved it. Wish we would of stayed longer. I will definitely recommend staying at Birdsong to family and friends. Thank you Allan!!"

"We had an amazing stay at Hacienda Encantada. It was the perfect getaway. Very conveniently located near the national park with some great hiking. Marty and Nina were so helpful with recommendations, directions and responding to our questions/requests! We would highly recommend this place!"
