We had an amazing time in Tom & Maria's property. The property is very well situated and there are many great restaurants and activities nearby. We literally looked out the windows and saw monkeys, parrots and toucans in the trees at the property. The actual villas are very large, clean and nice. The property overall is beautiful and the views of the lake are amazing. Maria also does an amazing job of suggesting and arranging activities. We had two large families in two of the villas and were very comfortable. I highly recommend Tom & Maria's place.
This property is gorgeous. We arrived 'late' (dark, 830p) and Tom had the gate open and waiting to greet us. We stayed in Casa Grande, and it was beautiful. The views are spectacular, and it was only a short drive to Nuevo Arenal. Looking off the patio is a great place to watch birds in the morning. We saw toucans and macaws, in addition to the rest of the many species in the area. Hot tub was fantastic after a long day.
Tom and Maria were great hosts. We have been to Costa Rica many times, so didn't really have a need to book tours or any of that, however, Maria has the inside scoop should customers want to. We plan to return soon!
2nd time I have visited Arenal Springs. Previously stayed at Casa grande and this time my family and I stayed at Casa Primera. Home is beautiful and home spectacular. Tom and Maria are great hosts too. Highly recommend this home and owners. Pura Vida
The views from this property are completely unmatched. You will feel like you are on the set of a movie scene, especially if you are able to book Casa Grande on top of the hill. Our group felt like they were transported to a magical tropical paradise the minute the gate opened and we drove inside.
This property is perfect for large groups or smaller get-togethers. The different villas on the property allow for privacy but the ability to all come together to share meals or spend time together. The grounds are incredibly beautiful with colorful flowers and local wildlife in abundance. This is truly a one of a kind property.
In addition to the beauty of the property itself you get the added bonus of fabulous owners/hosts Tom and Maria. Tom was very helpful and responsive to each of my questions (which was a ton, because we were getting married onsite!!) and went above and beyond to help me with every detail. Maria is incredible at setting up tours and organizing any and everything for the group. Maria set up a stunning sunset catamaran tour for our group and even stepped in when we had a last minute problem with the cost. She was so friendly and helpful with any request and made sure to look out for our interests and enjoyment. Thank you so much Tom and Maria for making this such a special trip for us and many of our wedding guests!!
I don't even know where to begin on this amazing property with this amazing couple! We booked all the villas on their property for my daughter's wedding. The pictures on line looked great but it doesn't give it proper justice. Each villa had it's own unique style & we absolutely loved the grounds. This well manicured estate has so many beautiful flowers & animals! As an added bonus, Tom & Maria let me make the bouquets & boutonnieres for the wedding from the flowers on their property. They were beautiful!! They accommodated & helped organize an "Unforgettable Amazing Wedding" for our daughter. We especially liked the sunset cruise they organized for our group of around 50 & had maps detailing all the places we would be visiting during our stay. They were invaluable on so many things! I viewed them as my family away from home & I will be forever grateful for their help in making this such a wonderful trip/memory! Thank you Tom & Maria! Until we meet again............ Love, The Tucker Family
April 2017. What a great place. Temperature is perfect. Air condition is not needed because there is a constant breeze of cool air off the lake. The view is spectacular , the gardens are colorful and well planned. The house is very warm. The water is pumped from a well on the property and is better that commercial spring water. Tom and Maria are wonderful hosts that are very accommodating. They will give you a hand written map that simplifies the locations of area attractions. Maria will book excursions for you. We decided to venture on our own into La Fortuna and Arenal Park. Awesome! This location is very quiet with privacy. There are two supermarkets in town, Moya Restaraunt, butcher (we didn't try this time but will the next) , gas station, 2 bakeries, and other stores are next to one another. We stayed for a few days and then our remaining six days on the Pacific Ocean. I wish we stayed longer in Nuevo Arenal. We will stay again next year. Great accommodations, hosts, and location.
Thank you Tom and Maria!
We arrived in the late evening and Maria was right there to welcome us! It was raining and Maria had an umbrella to help us stay dry while getting into the house. The view is breathtaking! You can't beat the view from the front patio, facing the lush green trees. Great spot for morning coffee! We stayed in the Casa Grande and felt like Kings and Queens. The property is gated and we felt very safe. There are restaurants and grocery stores that are about 10 minutes away. The owners of the restaurants all knew Tom and Maria and we felt like we were treated extra special. Our favorite restaurant for breakfast was the Lucky Bug, where we became "regulars". Our group ranged from 6 years to 79 years and all of us loved the food. We even chose the Lucky Bug for our Christmas dinner! We stayed at the Casa Grande for 6 nights and did not need to contact the owners for anything. Tom was fast to answer our emails and answer questions prior to arriving. We even had cleaners that came every other day, which was a bonus! Love this house and hope to stay there again!
