A recent party of four from New York was to stay for one night and extended it by One day five times.

The Gem of Costa Rica
The Gem of Costa Rica
My wife and I have been spending twenty-three days in the beautiful country of Costa Rica every year since 2007. We most likely know more about the country than most of the people that have lived there all of their lives. During those years we spent two of the weeks, on separate occasions, in the Arenal area. We decided to spend another week in Areal and by the greatest of flukes, we happened upon the internet pages for the Arenal Spring Villas rental cottages. If you are a one time visitor or are revisiting Costa Rica, the best place to savor what Costa Rica has to offer is at the rental cottages of Tom and Maria Ploskina. Besides visiting the most active volcano in the country, there are three zip lines, hot springs, hanging bridges, waterfalls, and excursions to nearby Monte Verde. Eating opportunities, wildlife viewing, and orchids are found everywhere. We stayed in the Enchanted Cottage, which has a babbling brook just outside the window to fall asleep by and a pool just out the back door. The cottage was more than we could have asked for. This gated paradise is the best kept secret in the country. The lands are immaculately groomed and the house keeping staff are some of the most friendly individuals that I have ever met in my life. The pictures on the website will blow you away but be prepared to be even more overwhelmed upon your arrival.

We stayed with Tom and Maria the first week of October 2013 for the first half of our honeymoon. Tom's directions are PERFECT, we stayed in the Enchanted Cottage which was wonderful, and beautiful. The place is safe, pristine, and close to all the activities you can imagine. Maria made our reseravtions for us when we arrived, and found us great deals with La Fortuna's best guides. Tom and Maria will treat you like family, they were most gracious to us. There is absolutely no question that we will visit again. Tom and Maria - thank you so much for everything! Our stay was amazing, and your maps ans suggestions are so helpful. Thank you for your generosity, The Smith's

We spent the month February 2013 in the Enchanted Cottage. It was a period of rest and relaxation in a beautiful estate setting. Parrots flew over the swimming pool, toucans visited us at the cottage and hummingbirds were active morning and evening in the adjoining shrubbery. The owners Tom and Maria were extremely attentive and anticipated all our needs for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We left with happiest of memories.

Why the Owner Chose Volcano Arenal:
It was an early retirement for me. I enjoy the climate and the natural beauty of Costa Rica. The simplicity of the life here known as 'Pura Vida'. But you will see that its a small community of many friendly Ex-Pats who have decided to spend there lives here is beautiful Costa Rica.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Nature and clean air and a perfect climate. Wildlife abounds! We are next to the largest lake in Costa Rica. Close to active Volcano Arenal and many adventures such as hot springs, Canopy Zip Lines, Waterfalls and many more activities related to this beautiful lake.
