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 Tilaran

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.

Beautiful home that needs certain updates.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed several weeks in this home with beautiful views of lake Arenal, very relaxing and with easy access to several locations within short and long drives. Our property manager Pablo was very helpful in suggesting various outings and assisting us with certain fixes throughout the house. The town of Tilaran is close by, here you have access to shopping and some very nice restaurants. All in all a most enjoyable stay. The house itself does need some updates, the owner has assured me that they will be taken care of for future guests and I have no doubt that they will appreciate the beauty and location of this very attractive home, enjoy.

Very comfortable. Pablo was impressive!

The only negative is that the property is not quite as beautiful as in the photos. Some maintenance work is required.

Great house, great location, great manager.

  • 5 of 5

The place met our needs perfectly. There were only 2 of us and we found it to be exactly as advertised. Used it as our adventure launch pad for a few days and ate locally with much satisfaction. Pablo the property manager was attentive and offered excellent suggestions for attractions and local amenities. We recommend it and would stay there again.

Sitting in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. My husband and I shared the detached bungalow while the rest of the group stayed in the main house. For us, the bungalow provided a peaceful privacy. Gathering in the main house was like being at home. The accommodations, the view and location were perfect. We arrived to see the repair man fixing the dryer. We didn't need it so it didn't affect our stay. Thank you for opening your home to us.

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.
