About ALLAN RUDICK

I have lived in Florida, New York City, and Jamaica. Have traveled the world looking for beautiful destinations, and have found this area to be one of those 'world class' destinations. Graduated Queens college in New York City, majoring in Business.

ALLAN RUDICK purchased this house in 2009

Why ALLAN RUDICK chose Alajuela Province

I have traveled to Costa Rica numerous times over the last decade. I have found this area to suit me, because of the natural beauty, and easy-going lifestyle. Also have friends that live in area.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy the serene and quiet environment, while still having easy access to the local restaurants and shopping in the nearby town of El Castillo and La Fortuna. I also enjoy the benefit of friendly neighbors, and the green style of living.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Birdsong! Allan is a great host, so welcoming and we became friends quickly. He helped us so much to get the most out of our vacation. Wonderful location! The views are so amazing, pictures don't do it justice. Great breakfasts and awesome chef. Clean, comfortable, we are so happy we experienced the El Castillo / Arenal area. Great hikes, zip-lining, hot springs, great small restaurants. We highly recommend the Birdsong, true paradise. Pura Vida!

Unique with a view

  • 5 of 5

Allan's place was exactly what we needed for our stay in La Fortuna. One of the most uniques AirBnBs I've stayed at yet. He provided everything you needed down to breakfast in the morning. The view and seclusion was amazing. I will definitely stay at his place again, without a doubt!

Strongly recommend to live

  • 5 of 5

Allan is really nice guy. His property has the best view in arenal area. Open window, you can see both lake and volcano. You can watch lots of bird without going out. You also can see monky jumping on the tree not far away from his house. I would highly recommend to my friends. You will love the view there.

Lucky Find!

  • 5 of 5

The house is incredible. It was a unforgettable experience and I will definitely be back. The house is rustic and beautiful and situated right at the edge of the national forest with great views of the Arenal Volcano and Lake. I felt very lucky to have found it. You could see and hear monkeys from the house. Everything we did was within an arms reach of each other, zip-lines, horseback riding, trails, volcanoes, waterfalls, hot springs, swimming, atv etc. No reason to get caught up in La Fortuna itself which is much more touristy. We only took one trip into the town for some shopping. In fact Allan was a great host and without him we would have missed out on a lot of the local experiences and culture. He brought us to some hidden gems and has plethora of invaluable information on the area and activities. He gave us privacy but also gave us a lot of information. The breakfast and dinners were amazing. The local food is always fresh and the fruit ripe and delicious. The chef came up with a bunch of interesting meals and delicious deserts every day.

My 3rd Stay at Birdsong!

  • 5 of 5

Birdsong is amazing! I returned for my 3rd stay since 2009. Allan was hospitable as always and treated us like family. Breakfast every morning was delicious. We did a few dinners at the villa as well and it was fantastic. Allan set us up with reservations at the Ziplines, Butterfly Conservatory tour, Hot Springs, horseback riding and Phoenix Restaurante just down the road from his villa. My wife and I took our kids (5 and 2 years old) and they loved everything about the trip too. The views are just as spectacular as ever and we are already looking forward to another stay at Birdsong.
