Why Thomas Ploskina chose Nuevo Arenal
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 Estate unique

Beautiful view gorgeous landscape but the place needs maintenance
The owners of the house very Nice and helpful but the house need Some maintenance.
There was no water pressure or hot water was limited and two of the burners of the stove did not work. With a little maintenance the place would be perfect.
Great place to stay! Highly recommended
Paradise at Lake Arenal
From the hosts to the home to the view, casa grande is magnificent. Tom and Maria were so helpful with restaurants and excursions, and anything you might possibly need. The house was clean and comfortable and the view is stellar! Wish we had more time!
Wonderful setting makes you feel like you lucky to have found such a gem. The property has an almost plantation type feel, with the large Casa Grande commanding the prime view. The Owners are tremendous and very friendly. We will forever remember our experience here!
We were in the casa grande in February 2019. Beautiful setting , lots of space, friendly owner Maria. We enjoyed mostly the exterior sitting area with the great view. The only thing is that he had difficulty finding the place (at night) since google maps (it’s 1 or 2 kilometers off) didn’t show it in the right place.
Fabulous views from luxurious accommodations
The house is very lavish in design with outstanding views of the lake area. The owner who lives on the same property was very helpful with our planning and looked after us well throughout our stay. A car is a must as the location is not close to many things.
Thanks for your assistance Tom and sharing this beautiful house.
