“Arenal Springs Villas Vacation”
Reviewed April 27, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Accommodations perfect for our family of 16: impeccably clean and comfortable, beautifully and completely furnished and breathtaking views over Lake Arenal. Tropical manicured landscape conducive to bird watching and listening. Maria’s warm hospitality and expert advice about the area was beyond our expectations, assuring a pleasurable stay and happy memories of Arenal. We would highly recommend the Villas to anyone visiting the area.

“A piece of paradise with wonderful views of Lake Arenal”
Reviewed March 11, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We stayed at the beautiful house at the top of the property, giving us beautiful vies of the lake and countryside. The birds visited every morning. Beautiful foliage covers the property. The location is perfect, just a short drive to restaurants, local towns, and the Arenal Volcano. The owners are super helpful with recommendations for food, attractions, etc. You cannot go wrong staying at this beautiful property in Lake Arenal area

“High expectations exceeded!”
Reviewed March 10, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Our party of 4 seniors (average age over 70!) arrived by rented SUV just after sundown and were guided the last few miles via phone. Obviously couldn't take in the expansive, beautiful view that greeted us in the morning. Breathtaking!

We stayed in the large house and it had the additional amenity of a hot tub and propane barbeque. The pool is far enough away not to be bothered by others enjoying it, but close enough to be an easy walk down hill.

Tom and Maria were more like our hosts than renters. Both are friendly and engaging and went out of their way to be helpful to us. We followed their recommendations for places to go in the nearby Nuevo Arenal and were not disappointed in any of them.

Our stay was 10 days, so we really got to know Tom and Maria and we had a number of extended visits with them (our election!). Both are friendly and likeable and added a lot to our visit.

The grounds and the house itself are right out of a travelog. A special recommendation to the housekeepers...they did a great job in keeping the premises tidy and clean.

This was our 6th visit to Costa Rica and I can honestly say this was our favorite!

“Wonderful and welcoming villa”
Reviewed March 7, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

The Arenal Springs Villas near Neuvo Arenal was our first stop in Costa Rica. Our unit was clean, spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable and private. Good fridge, functional basic kitchen. Free wi-fi. We had lovely views. Enjoyed swimming in the pool on a sunny afternoon. Our hosts Tom and Maria were welcoming and very helpful. Tom even upgraded the TV to enable better viewing of winter Olympics (we're Canadian, what can I say).
We were travelling without a car and new to Costa Rica. Consequently we relied more heavily than we expected to on Tom and Maria's good will and support. They graciously helped us with car bookings and advice and assisted us with a run to town. This location is very close to restaurants and services in Neuvo Arenal and quite close to Lafortuna with hot springs, adventure tours etc. and to Arenal area activities - if you have are driving.

“This is the place you've been looking for!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

If you seek a peaceful, quiet vacation with spectacular views and just a short drive to some of the most desirable sites in Costa Rica, then Casa Grande is your dream come true. We rented this house on our recent trip and wish we could have stayed forever. Morning coffee on the huge veranda watching the birds peck away at the bananas and nuts that we offered while listening to the monkeys (although we never actually caught sight of them, darn it!) and watching the sun peek above the mountains and reflect on Lake Arenal. The house was impeccably clean and adequately stocked, although we chose to eat at one of the many delicious nearby restaurants for nearly every meal. And the property's landscaping is amazing! A short drive (45 minutes) to Arenal and the thermal springs is a must! Take Tom and Maria's advice on where to go -- we bypassed Tabacon and went to Los Lagos thermal pools -- a great deal to be had for a full day of soaking in the warm springs water with a fabulous lunch for only $29. Away from the city lights, we enjoyed cool evenings star-gazing on the veranda. Although we didn't use it, the hot tub was warmed and ready and perfectly placed to enjoy the stunning views - day or night. If you're looking for a relaxing vacation, you definitely belong here. Thanks Tom and Maria, for your wonderful hospitality and for sharing your property with us! I hope to return for a longer stay next time.

“A fusion of natural beauty and luxurious elegance.”
Reviewed March 5, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

As four seniors, we truly enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the stunning views from both the patio and the interior of this open design mansion. Tom and Maria were gracious hosts as well as old hands in the community who took the time to appraise us of shopping and restaurants nearby.

Nueva Arenal is somewhat of a German expat enclave on the northwestern shores of Lake Arenal, .so you can go out in the morning to enjoy either your fruhstuck or your daysayunos at a number of interesting nearby establishments, take your pick.

We made use of both the pool.in the afternoon and the spa in the evening, My wife Kathie fed visiting tropical birds fresh fruit every day but was less successful at tempting our visiting our Capuchin monkeys down from their arboreal perches by proffering banana treats..

The kitchen is fully equipped and we ate in about half of our evenings. Bring your own favorite spices since since availability is limited in the nearby supermarkets.

The paved driveway up to the top where Casa Grande is situated can be intimidating at first but take your time and enjoy this beautifully landscaped vehicle pathway. If you can drive in Costa Rica, the last few hundred yards to home will be easy..

If you enjoy quiet solitude and stunning natural beauty experienced from a grand and lofty mansion, this is your place.. .
