“Heaven on earth!”
Reviewed February 26, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We rented the whole property for our family. (16 people+ 1 child) It was spectacular! The accommodations were extremely comfortable. The owners were lovely to work with, and were there within minutes after a call. Other than that we only saw them upon arrival and departure. The property has incredible landscaping as well, and the view is amazing. Thank you Tom, and Maria for making us so comfortable, and sharing this little heaven on earth with us. We will be back as soon as possible.

“An Incredible Vacation”
Reviewed February 10, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Arenal Springs Villas by the lake and Casa Grande are simply spectacular. We normally don't write reviews but we felt a need to share this with others. We were a little worried about another clients words about humidity and not having air moving thru the Villa was completely unfounded for us. The Villa was amazingly clean and weather was very comfortable with nice cool nights for sleeping. Tom and Maria were exceptional hosts and Tom was very knowledgeable about the area as he has been in Costa Rica for more than 13 years. Maria planned all of our tours for us and was spot on defining where we should visit and where to dine. Tom has a hand-drawn two page map highlighting all the useful information such as tours to see and places to eat. Casa Grande is a very private part of the property and we were able to look out the windows or walk just out the door to see exotic birds and animals. My children like us will have these perfect memories for a lifetime. This property is absolutely incredible. We hope to return someday and we highly recommend Arenal Springs Villas by the Lake to all.
Regards,
The Port Family

“Amazing”
Reviewed February 5, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

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.

“Excellent Spot, Excellent Hosts. Will be back!”
Reviewed December 22, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

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!

“Stellar Views and Amazingly Responsive/Helpful Hosts”
Reviewed July 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

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!!

“There's Not Enough Words To Describe ...............!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

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
