"We've had many trips to Costa Rica and this property is one of our favorites. Initial booking and communication was excellent and friendly. Ed, the Property Manager was great on our arrival and was very helpful in getting us settled away. A nice touch is the extra supplies that were available and the house is very well equipped. This is a great location as it is very quiet and the Las Flores community is very well maintained. Morning coffee watching the birds was a treat and we enjoyed several evening meals on the patio. There were 5 of us on this trip and the house was comfortable and spacious. The local artwork and very well stocked library were also very enjoyable. Overall this is a very well maintained and managed property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Recommended local restaurants include Las Tijanas, Gingerbread and Moya's Place all of which are well worth a visit. There is a very nice walk around the property by the pond that is great for spotting some of the local birds and frogs. Don't hesitate to book this property."

"This was my second visit to Villa Encantada! After the first visit in 2010, my daughter decided this was the place to get married! We returned with a group of 30+. The bridal party(14) stayed at the Villa and Glenn helped to place the rest of us in properties close by, including his sister's house up the hill. The whole event could not have been better! Let me say that Glenn is a great guy and incredible host! If you want to experience the best of Costa Rica, stay with Glenn at the Villa! The grounds are as beautiful as the pictures indicate and you can be entertained right on the property. The Tabacon Lodge and Skywalk at Volcanoes National Park are under one hour drive. Shopping and dining in Nuevo Arenal has a true Tico feel and much better than dealing with the big tourist towns. Pura Vida! Thank you Glenn!"

A great place to spend one night, week or 6 weeks like we did.
"The Deck was wonderful, with a great view of Lake Arenal. I think we enjoyed the quiet surroundings, and feeling that we were the only ones around at times. We woke up to the sound of many birds, and the howler monkeys in the distance. This home has all the convenience you would ever want. We had a beautiful girl that came in to clean every two weeks. Coryn was very helpful, can't say enough about her kindness. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely home to anyone. Safety is not a concern, with the locked gates. I would return in a heartbeat."

"We stayed a week at this beautiful home 4/19/15-4/26/15. Could ask for anything more. The house was very well outfitted. Ed & Leslie greeted us upon our arrival they were very hospitable. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks Richard & Bev!"
