Perfect for a family of 18! Enjoyed by All.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 18 rented the entire estate for a week. Ages 7 to 62. We were impressed with the accommodations. Plenty of room for everyone. The description and pictures of the estate are very accurate. Each house provided excellent accommodations.

We spent the week with a different activity each day- zip lining with Sky Adventures, multi adventure day pass at the Springs Resort & Spa, Cultour and a day at the beach. Although it rained off and on throughout the week, the activities continued and were great!

Just beware that the trip from San Jose can be lengthy compared to Liberia, but we found the airfare to be much more economical from San Jose .

I left the best asset for last which is Tom and Maria. Communications prior to the trip made for easy planning. Maria will help with transportation, making reservations for excursions and restaurants and is attentive throughout the week regarding any problems or questions. She is very friendly and welcoming.

My family definitely learned the meaning of Pura Vida!

Tropical Adventure

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Arenal Springs Villas by the Lake with my wife, three child (ages 11, 8 and 4) and two in-laws, and we all enjoyed our time. It was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica and the surrounding adventures are first stories I tell about our trip. Waking up and looking out onto the bright blue Lake Arenal and being surrounded in a tropical paradise is an experience I would highly recommend. The villas fit our family perfectly and Tom’s recommendations were helpful as well. There is a lot to do in the area and would recommend nearby (30 minute drive) zip lining, rain forest hikes and hot springs. What a terrific experience. If you like lush, tropical rain forests and the outdoors, it is really a cannot-miss. We cannot thank Tom enough as we accidentally left our passports there while we explored costal Costa Rica and he held on to them until we returned. Maybe it was something in our subconscious that wanted to stay longer!

Beautiful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay with Tom and Maria at the Arenal Springs Villas. The grounds are beautiful and well cared for. We stayed at the Enchanted Cottage, and this was perfect for our situation. The Villa was cleaned many times during our stay and was very comfortable. The hosts were warm and welcoming and helped us when we needed help. I would recommend staying here for future travelers and we hope to some day come back.

A Slice of Paradise in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Arenal Springs Villas are an absolute perfect vacation destination for enjoying the shear beauty and plethora of outdoor activities available in Costa Rica. We are fairly well traveled and Casa Grande was by far the most well appointed and beautifully situated home we have ever vacationed in! Tom and Maria are welcoming, easy to communicate with and dedicated to helping you make Costa Rica the vacation you are dreaming of. If you are looking to be active this is a good home base. If you are looking to just relax and enjoy the view, you could not choose a better location. We could go on and on but to keep it simple--book here. You will be 100% satisfied with your choice and will want to return time and again to this piece of paradise!

Beautifully landscaped property with great lake views

  • 5 of 5

We needed a great place for a large group (17 people) near Arenal, and Arenal Springs Villas fit the bill. This is a 12-acre gated property with two of the most helpful owners/caretakers you'll meet. Tom and Maria answered all our questions before we arrived and helped us make reservations for a slew of activities while we were there. Any question we had was quickly answered -- it helps to have locals nearby!

The property has four houses, so you can spread out and enjoy the side of the hill it's on. There's a decent sized pool and a hot tub and beautiful flora all around.

It's about an hour to Arenal and a little further to La Fortuna, but the windy roads make for a fun drive. The breathtaking views make for a relaxing stay.

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

  • 5 of 5

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!
