Recent Lake Arenal reviews

  • Pristine Grounds in an Excellent Location

    "Within an hour of the volcanoes, not many tourists around. Beautiful estate, nice pool (brisk and refreshing). The cottage was of European quality/standards, great woodworking inside. A great place to cook and relax. We saw Toucans! No mosquitos. Maria was very helpful and had a lot of good advice. We would definitely stay here again."

  • Exceptional home! Don't second guess-just book it:-).

    "Tom & Maria have a gorgeous property & this home is by far, the most favorite VRBO rental I have ever stayed at. The three bedroom home is simply stunning with great vistas of Lake Arenal. The home is in beautifully maintained & we truly enjoyed our stay. Maria & Tom were so helpful in planning our excursions & put up with our indecisiveness on which excursions would work for our family. There just aren't enough adjectives to describe the beauty of their property, the home, the views & the loveliness of the locals we met on our trip. While we enjoyed our visit to the beaches of Costa Rica, their Arenal home was our favorite on our 11 day trip. If there is any downside to the location, it would be it's a bit of a drive to some of the activities we did closer to La Fortuna but we really didn't see it as a big disadvantage. We enjoyed the spas at Tabacon the most and the breakfast spot, Cafe y Macadamia, was amazing. Great views, great breakfasts - a nice fit with our lovely stay with Tom & Maria."

  • Tropical Gardens with lake view

    "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 home has everything for relaxation!

    "We can"t say enough about how much we enjoyed this property and the kind attention from Ed (The property manager). The comfort of the house and the well equipped kitchen are without equal. We were thrilled by the great birdwatching (saw at least 20 different types) right from the terrace. The cabana and pool area are landscaped and very well maintained with beautiful tropical plants and flowers. We especially enjoyed the mini library with travel and wildlife reference books. We were very near to Nueva Arenal with nice stores and good restaurants. The location of this home is very convenient to La Fortuna and a few hours from Santa Elena. We recommend this lovely property and would love to return."
