  • Absolutely Beautiful Villa!!!! We had the time of our lives thanks to Tom & Maria!!!!

    "My husband and I, along with another couple stayed in at the Casa Grande villa and we simply had a fabulous, incredible time! The home itself is even more beautiful than the pictures, (if that is possible!) and was incredibly clean with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The view was breathtaking!! The grounds of the villas property are meticulously maintained with attention to every small detail. Perhaps the most important and impressive part about Arenal Villas is the fact that Tom and Maria helped us so much with planning our daily itinerary. There were numerous emails to Tom/Maria ahead of the trip which were all promptly answered. They recommended a driver (Emily and Balo who were incredible!), excursions, restaurants and tours. We were not disappointed with any of their recommendations. Our drivers, Balo and his wife Emily (whom Tom and Maria recommended) were so patient and wonderful with us and made sure we went to all of the right places and knew how to get us there! They even took us to a special souvenir shop to be sure we weren't over-paying for our souvenirs!! We truly felt like royalty staying at the Villa and having such wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable and patients hosts!!! None of us spoke Spanish and it was never a problem! Thank you Tom and Maria and staff for the trip of a lifetime!"

  • More than advertised

    "Casa Gavilan ranks TOPS on m VBRO rental experiences. This property is gorgeous. The pictures do not do it justice. Ed was so helpful. We were delayed arriving which caught us having to drive the windy roads at dark, nerve racking. Ed met us along the road and guided us in. He also had us the essentials for breakfast and feeding the birds, our favorite activity. As I said the house is amazing, superior decor, extremely clean, wonderful landscaping and views. The wildlife kept us entertained. I think our biggest food expense was fresh fruit, for us and the birds. The Arenal location is a little off the beaten path, perfect for R&R. We stayed for three weeks, took on 2-3 adventures a week. Otherwise we stayed at "home" relaxing at the pool, walking the neighborhood trail, or maybe a trip to town for bite to eat and an Imperial beer. Locals are so friendly. Definitely eat at Moya`s and hang at Karacters. Pick up some homemade yogurt or cheese at El Estatblo. Our faves were back 142 towards Tillaran, La Rana is less than 2 km for breakfast and dinner, love Mr. Riner. The food is very good and he feeds the birds by hand. Further down the road is Casa Delagua for breakfast and lunch. We booked most of our activities through Los Camps in La Fortuna. They are associated with Los Lagos Hotel and Spa next door, with every booked activity you get a free pass to the Hotel pools, springs, restaurants and bars. That felt great after the Sky Trek zipping. I could go on forever. We'll be back."

  • Fantastic Experience

    "This was our 2nd trip to Costa Rica, but this time we brought along my mother in law (77 years old) and two boys (2 years old and 18 years old). The property was amazing with fantastically decorated rooms and unbelievable views. Candace was very helpful when working with us to plan the perfect experience for our family. Velma greeted us each morning with a fantastic breakfast and steaming hot coffee. Alex took us on horseback rides through the rainforest which included the Macadamia Nut Farm. This house was built to provide for large families or groups, but cozy enough for our party of 5. This home is the perfect vacation spot for anyone wishing to experience Costa Rica since it is so convenient to Nuevo Arenal (my most favorite town in Costa Rica!!!), zip line adventures, Arenal Hanging Bridges, Eco Termales, ect. We had a fantastic time!!! :)"
