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 Villa unique
Nature and clean air and a perfect climate. Wildlife abounds! We are next to the largest lake in Costa Rica. Close to active Volcano Arenal and many adventures such as hot springs, Canopy Zip Lines, Waterfalls and many more activities related to this beautiful lake. Wake boarding, Skiing, fishing and boating.

From the moment we arrived until the day we left it felt like home. Maria was an excellent source of information and just an absolute dream. The property is amazing and the wildlife is abundant. Toucans, monkeys you can see it all from your front porch. We will definitely stay there again.
This was a vacation for me and my 2 teenage boys. The house was perfectly located for volcano hikes, zip-lining and white water rafting. Maria and Tom were fantastic at making us feel right at home. They helped us with reservations and recommendations for restaurants. They made the trip that much more enjoyable.
The house was exactly what we were looking and it was great to have the pool all to ourselves. Definitely recommend!
What a wonderful location. Very clean and the view from the front of the house is amazing. Thomas and Maria are super friendly and very helpful.
Beautiful house on gated property
We loved staying at this house! The best part of staying here is your host, Maria. She was so very gracious, it was like staying with family. She was on-site the whole time (her house is also on the property), and was available for any questions, or for helping to book tours. The house was large and roomy for our family of five. It has everything you need to cook some meals in the house, and Maria provided lots of recommendations for restaurants in the area (definitely try The Lucky Bug! Awesome breakfasts!). The kids loved the pool, and the view of the lake is amazing! It is about a 10 minute drive to the nearest town, and about an hour to most of the local attractions.
Beautiful and unique
This an incredible property with a great host. If you are visiting the Lake Arenal area, I would advise you to stay here at Tom's place. We stayed in the house at the very top of the property. The views of the lake were truly amazing.
Terrific stay in a beautiful area of Costa Rica
(En español más abajo) We had a great time at Tom's property in Nuevo Arenal. The house is very well kept and comfortable. Tom and his wife went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant time, with numerous recommendations about local things to do, restaurants, etc. trying to cater to the specific needs of our family. Nuevo Arenal is somewhat of an un-discovered area where you still have lots of interesting activities either close by or within about 1 hr drive. We highly recommend it.
Pasamos unos días fantásticos en esta casa, muy cómoda y bien cuidada. Tom y su esposa realmente se esforzaron para asegurarnos una estadía agradable, con buenas recomendaciones sobre actividades, restaurantes, etc. Nuevo Arenal es una joyita todavía no muy descubierta pero llena de actividades muy interesantes o divertidas muy cerca, o a una hora de viaje o menos. Realmente lo recomendamos.
