About George Ampalloor

I live in United states and I have a beautiful brand new property overlooking Lake Arenal in Tilaran, Guanacaste.

Its a beautiful house and you won be disappointed.

see more at our website.

George Ampalloor purchased this villa in 2009

Why George Ampalloor chose Costa Rica

This is my second home. Tropical country and I love nature.You can see all kind of colorful birds and plants here. I plan to retire in the future in Costa Rica.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We could not have been more pleased with our experience. The house was clean, well-equipped and in excellent working order. Any questions or remedies we required were promptly addressed by the office staff. Food shopping in Tilaran at the Pali made using the well-equipped kitchen a pleasure. You'll want to take home lots of 1821 brand coffee from there! Take George's suggestion and rent a four-wheel-drive SUV - not because you'll be four-wheeling through a jungle but the potholes are a way of life in Costa Rica and the Arenal area has many unpaved hilly roads that you may wish to climb for the beautiful vistas. There is plenty to do within and hour or two of the house. We went horesback riding, viewed the waterfalls and the volcano (we splurged on one night at the Tabacon Spa - the hot springs are amazing), toured the cloud forest and went kayaking. Fabulous trip. We highly recommend it!

Exotic villa at Lake Arenal

  • 5 of 5

Thank you George for the wonderful time we had with our family at casa Lago Arenal. The property description and pictures are exact as advertised. Thanks you for your superfast responses by emails. There are beautiful lake and mountain views from the house and casita and we loved sitting around and walking on the deck. The pool by the clubhouse is awesome with great views of Lake Arenal. The house was maintained spotless. This house is in a resort with round the clock security where there is an office with well maintained yard and trees and flowers around the resort property with other similar type octagonal villas. This is a high end house especially in Costa Rica. I would surely recommend this house to anybody wanting to rent a house around Arenal area. The amenities in the house are 5 stars. There is a full kitchen with 6 burner stove, Granite countertop,dish washer,Microwave, DVD/Satellite TV, WII console, Broadband Internet with a Laptop Computer for use by guests. And most of all great big showerheads with

24 hrs hot water. The linens and towels and all the items provided were high class. There is also a First Aid kit which I have not seen in any houses I have rented anywhere. George gave us exact details on the house and activities nearby and the office also helped in guiding us with directions and activities etc. There is maid service available. The maid is the private cook and the same person cleans and does laundry for you if needed. It’s a good way to pamper yourself when on vacation. The house is kid friendly with high chair, munchkin inflatable bath tub, and flat aero bed if needed. Overall we had the best and relaxing time in Costa Rica. I will surely rent it again on my next visit.

After spending time on the Pacific coast, we arrived at this wonderful home. The first thing you notice upon walking in is the incredible view of Lake Arenal. It is breathtaking! Breezes blow through the house night and day -- ahhh!

We often woke up to rainbows and the sound of toucans and parakeets!

The kitchen is wonderful, with modern appliances, master bedroom very comfortable, even the pillows were comfy.

There are also two pools in the community and they are very nice.

Pablo the property manager, well I can't say enough about Pablo. He was so attentive, and on the spot, when we needed him! We both really appreciated all that he did for us. THANK YOU PABLO.

We highly recommend this lovely Lake Arenal home, and are looking forward to returning again.

Nice home by the lake

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home. Had everything we were looking for in a nice quiet location by the lake. Served as a base for travel to the Arenal volcano and Montverde, and a quiet place to enjoy the evenings listening to the birds. Two green parrots were regular visitors. Couple little things like safe not working and 1 air conditioner not working but overall would recommend the home. Directions to the house need to be updated - had difficulty finding it. Yacht club and hotel are no longer open. Property Manager Pablo was helpful in providing information on attractions in the area.

Owner's Response: Dear Allan, thanks for your review. The A/C issue was not reported to us by the previous client prior to your check-in. It looks like it happened when you were there and Pablo went to San Jose and got a new A/C fitted in 2 days but unfortunately you were not able to use it. But we took care of the issue as soon as we could. But I am glad you enjoyed your stay. we always provide google maps coordinates to the location, so that nobody has problem finding the location. George

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at George's Lake Arenal condo! The house manager, Pablo, is wonderful! He stayed late to meet us after our flight was delayed and assisted not only with the house, but also excursion reservations. Our best meal of the trip was one of his breakfast recommendations. Waking up to the lake view, lush scenery and sounds of nature was the best way to start the day. The home is in close proximity to all the attractions that the Arenal area has to offer, and we would have loved to stay for another week to see them all. We had a great experience!
