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."

"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!"

"We, a party of 6, stayed at Stephanie and Ron's beautiful gem for a total of 13 nights. We loved the layout and space available to us, especially the big living room/kitchen area and the deck. Getting to it at night can be challenging since the "Turtle Cove" sign is partially damaged. Jorge, the property manager, was kind enough to wait for our delayed arrival because we got lost a few times. :)
Unfortunately, the weather wasn't that great but the never-ending winds were just right for the die-hart windsurfers amongst us. It's important though to let new tenants know that the road to the property is a dirt road so that people can make decisions about the type of car and car insurance to get when coming to stay here. Nevertheless, it was an okay enough road with a regular car.
Thank you again, Stephanie and Ron, for letting us stay at your beautiful property! We would definitely recommend this place this to others who want to stay near Ticowinds or who do not mind driving 45 min to see the volcano, go on hikes, or enjoy the hot springs."

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!"
