About the Property
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Our bright and cheery 2100 sq. ft. villa provides a great base for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Whether you are looking for a vacation packed with the one of a kind eco-adventure only available in Costa Rica or simply want to relax in your private pool and on the quiet black sand beach, Villa Gecko is the place for you. Located on the LOWER half of the exclusive Bahia Pez Vela resort, our villa provides beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean, Monkey's Head and Witch's Rock, and is just steps to a tranquil beach that offers great snorkeling, soft ebony sand and even extensive tidepool exploration. The villa is casual, inviting and well equipped.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast next to your private pool and spend the evening stargazing from your private balcony or large patio. The onsite restaurant, located adjacent to the beach and resort pool, offers local and North American specialties--along with a full bar service--in a low-key environment. The lively village of Coco Beach, a short 10 minute drive away, hosts a variety of restaurants and nightlife, banks, shopping, tours, etc.
The villa is set up to make your stay pleasant--private pool in a spacious patio area, fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, all linens, wooden lounge chairs and patio furniture, plenty of storage space, DVD, cable TV, FREE WIRELESS INTERNET, games, books and more.
