  • Stunning view. Beautiful house. Friendly helpful host. Private. Great Costa Rican experience.

    "Birdsong is easily the most beautiful VRBO we have stayed in. The view is stunning and looks a bit different each day as the mist or sun plays across the forest below. The breakfast included was delicious each day. We also had Allan's chef prepare dinner every night and that was also superb and less expensive than eating at a restaurant. The house is fairly remote but as we soon found out most of the tourist attractions and adventures like zip lining were right near the house. Those staying in the the town of La Fortuna had to travel to this area each day. The road up to the house is steep but well maintained and we had no problem getting there with our rental car. I must admit that I was a bit nervous booking a VRBO in a different country but I can assure everyone that this was totally fine. The host Allan is an American that took great care of us during our stay. All the transactions were secure and it was just the same as in the USA. So all in all a great value and you would be foolish to stay at a hotel instead of at Birdsong."

  • Stunning place to relax

    "I finally got the chance to go on a vacation of a life time ,after many nights of looking on the internet we came across this amazing Hacienda Guest House the price was reasonable so we booked the home for 7 days.After a long flight and the great directions Nita gave us we finally arrived I was not only amazed with the view of the Lake Arenal the Volcano and the beautiful rain forest from our Hacienda The guest house was also amazing clean and beautiful inside and out,It was also fully furnished bedding kitchen and bathroom. The out side had really relaxing areas with rocking chairs,Hammock and even a BBQ if you wanted.The next day we ventured out their was so much to see and do natural hot springs nice restaurants and shopping even the snake zoo was educational.In Returning back to our Hacienda from our daily adventures, we meet the owners of our guest house Marty and Nita they we so friendly ,nice and accommodating and offered to make reservations for any tours we might like to do in which we did two of them that were fantastic.I would recommend any one to stay at the Encantada Guest House .Thank you Marty and Nita for making our trip wonderful and all your assistance.

  • 5 star (would book again or refer to family/friends without hesitation )

    "5+ star (without hesitate to go again or recommend) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ This property was more then expected. With the 5 star rating, we expected a great home and it exceeded our expectations. We went with another couple and it was perfect. We had our own private villa and our guests had there own villa as well. Then we met in the afternoons/evenings for games, dinner in the main quarters. The pool and jacuzzi was large and spacious. Plenty of great places to eat in town - 5 minute drive. La Finca Pizzeria was great and we stopped there twice on our 1 week stay. And only about 30 minute drive from San Juan Airport. About a 1 hr and 15 minute drive to Jaco (beach area/surfing). The home was away from everything but close enough for anything you might want to do. If you are going to Costa Rica, you should book here. More then worth it."

  • The only thing more lovely than the casita were the hosts.

    "Great location, near one national park and not too far from others and the water. Beautiful cottage, exactly as described. The hosts were truly wonderful. Can't wait to get back."
