Holiday Rental House
The Birdhouse is a two-story Americanized Tico house located halfway between Aguas Zarcas and Ciudad Quesada in San Carlos, Costa Rica. A flock of endangered wild macaws visits the house throughout the day (they are wild, so their presence cannot be guaranteed), and guests can get an up close view of them from the bird observation room. The house features a wraparound balcony that offers stunning views of Arenal Volcano and the surrounding countryside, including a lovely nighttime view of Ciudad Quesada. It is a 2/2 and sleeps four comfortably (one queen, one full). All rooms are outfitted with air conditioners and ceiling fans. There is a fully equipped kitchen and onsite exercise machines. Snacks are available for purchase. A Weber BBQ grill is also available.

The house is not equipped with cable, but does have internet access, and guests will have access to an extensive video library, as well as English-language reading material. Both bathrooms offer hot water showers. The house is non-smoking. Parking is available, and a bus passes directly in front of the house at regular intervals. The house is less than a five minute drive to the nearest hot springs, approximately an hour and 15 minutes from La Paz Waterfall, about an hour's drive to La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano, and roughly two hours from San Jose. We are approximately equidistant from both coasts. The owner lives onsite to assist with any last minute needs or advice. Guests should love dogs as the owner is a dog lover and several live onsite. If you miss your dog, you can probably borrow one for the night. :)More

About the neighbourhood
The home is located in a tranquil farming community. There are a couple of little stores in the area should guests require anything. A bus passes in front of the house at regular intervals. It is less than a five minute drive to the nearest hot springs, where there is also a spa. Wild macaws visit the home throughout the day (they're wild, so their presence is not guaranteed), and guests can watch them at their leisure from the bird observation room.
