His comment was that we were in the best location for someone to fulfill all the entertainment and sight seeing and that they did not need to relocate. The convenience of our location was so outstanding that they could go in different directions each day and have a great time without a plan when they began their morning.

Why Thomas Ploskina chose Alajuela

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.

What makes this villa unique

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. Wake boarding, Skiing, fishing and boating.

Tropical Gardens with lake view

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bella Vista is set at the top of the property which is in a beautiful tropical garden that is private and gated. The gardens are lush with tropical plants and fruits and and varied array of birds and butterflies. Tom and Maria are most helpful and will give recommendations on your requests. Maria was able to a book ziplining tour for us at a discounted price and must do for anyone who would love an incredible view of the rainforest. The villa has a small kitchen where you can prepare simple meals with groceries from the town about a 20 minute drive away. It is a great location away from the crowds but close enough to use as a home base for northern Costa Rica.

This is the way to enjoy Arenal

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed in the Enchanted Cottage during our Costa Rica vacation. We had a great time and Tom & Maria couldn't have been more helpful. The location is about 50-60 minutes outside of La Fortuna depending on who you're driving behind--the roads are only 1 lane, very curvy, and people like to take their sweet time. The Enchanted Cottage is located on the grounds of the Arenal Springs Villas. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and we finally saw toucans on our last day there after looking every morning. The cottage was very clean and private and has a basic kitchen so you can prepare your own meals--we got VERY tired of eating out all of the time by our 8th day in CR. If you do choose to go out to eat, we really suggest Moya's. Great food! Tom can recommend all the places to try and what to avoid. If you want to be in La Fortuna, this may not be the place for you. However, if you want to get away from all the touristy stuff and off the beaten path a bit, this is a wonderful place. Lake Arenal is gorgeous and La Fortuna is not far when you feel like being a tourist.

only adjectives....beautiful, peaceful,clean,stunning

  • 5 of 5

The homes have all the comfort and amenities of the modern world in the rainforest. Spectacular property, immaculately maintained, a very thorough cleaning crew took care of the home. Excellent location, close to many attractions. Tom and Maria are very gracious, kind and generous hosts, helped us choose and book our outings and activities. This is our home away from home when we visit Costa Rica, we look forward to many many more visits here. >From the kids: we loved chasing the birds, especially the toucans, watching the ants build their home, playing and exploring in the gardens and streams. We took many many pictures of the sunset and loved jumping into the pool.

Heaven on Earth.....An absolutely incredible vacation

  • 5 of 5

I could not wait to write this review so I could share with anyone out there looking for a great place to land for an outstanding stay. We booked months before our stay and the owner and his wife were wonderful in helping us to have all the plans in place for our stay. We read all of the reviews about this place and we were not even a little disappointed. There were 8 of us and we stayed at the Casa Grande and Casa Bella Vista. The view is to die for. We felt like VIP's or Hollywood stars. The Villa was outstanding. The vaulted exotic wood ceilings, the beautiful furnishings and the largest living room I've ever seen in my life. Outside the porch wraps around the front of the villa and lends to the panoramic view of beautiful Lake Arenal. We had the Rancho outside to gather for Bar-B-Q's and the Jacuzzi was a great place to relax. The grounds keeping here is phenomenal. It abounds with beautiful flowers and Palm and Banana trees. Tom and Maria are the greatest of hosts. Maria helped all of us plan our tours and I can't say enough about her. We had almost 50 emails between Tom and me and I can't believe the patience Tom had with all the questions we had. It was our first trip abroad and it has been the best vacation we have ever had. Just email Tom and he and his beautiful wife Maria will take care of the rest for you. Thanks Tom and Maria from all of our family.
