Carrillo house description

Casa Vela is a fabulous custom home located about 2 hours south of the Liberia International Airport in the small beachfront community of Playa Carrillo. The area is home to some of the prettiest beaches in Costa Rica and Casa Vela has beautiful ocean views with Pacific sunrises and sunsets. Enjoy the peace and quiet of Carillo from this wonderful home or drive a short distance into Samara for more action! Carrillo is well known for world-class sport fishing and many boats are available for fishing trips in the area. This is one of the hidden gems of coastal Costa Rica.

Casa Vela is a new custom home located 1,100 feet above the Carrillo beach. The master bedroom opens onto the pool patio and has a view of the Pacific Ocean. The infinity pool is adjoined by a large heated Jacuzzi. Both bedrooms have private baths and large closets. The kitchen is custom and fully equipped, with gas stove, double ovens, microwave and all necessary cookware. The house is fully air conditioned and each room has ceiling fans.

The mountaintop neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful and the Carrillo area itself is very safe for visitors. This is a great destination for families, with plenty of exciting options for adventure nearby.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: I am a widow who does spend a good bit of time in Costa Rica especially during the winter months. I operate a sportfishing travel and tournament business.

              Why the Owner Chose Carrillo:
              The location is very accessible from the States. The views are nothing short of spectacular, the area is very safe and secure, the sportfishing is terrific and the people are very friendly and helpful.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The location is very peaceful. It is a wonderful place to get away from it all and is a great place for kids. There is a lot to do in the area including a surf school, horseback riding, jungle trips and a native zoo.
