Carolanne Johns purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Carolanne Johns chose Cantón Carrillo
Costa Rica is so unique - the Tico's are friendly, hardworking and very modest. the safe environment allows everyone the opportunity to explore their natural wonders. There's so much to see and do within an hour and half drive from the villa that you will want to come back, just like us.
What makes this Villa unique
Location - Location - Location The Costa Rican coastline is protected and controlled by the government for the first two hundred meters. There is no btter location on teh northern pacific that is located so close to the shoreline with the quality of construction offerred by Bahia Pez Vela. We offer excellent value for your enjoyment

Sports & Adventure Activities
After driving through town, and then down roads which are filled with bumps and potholes (and people, cows, dogs, and cats), you land at paradise. You won't believe the view - from our front porch we overlooked the entire beach (usually with no more than 5 other people total), we could look to the left and see the three glimmering pools and bar area, to the right a small isthmus and some very tall trees where we saw a huge group of howler monkeys one evening, and in front a nice grassy area on the way to the beach - where we saw the largest iguanas we have ever seen. One looked almost alligator sized!
The actual house was wonderful - all American/Canadian modern amenities - the kitchen is perfect to make any meal you can dream up (if you get tired of arroz con pollo!) - great A/C and fans, comfortable beds, and nice bathrooms. Water pressure in the master bathroom shower is not great, but hardly worth complaining over.
The staff around the property and restaurant were courteous and helpful - and were available to us whenever we needed them. But really, the view is everything. I got lost for hours sitting on the porch and just looking at the waves coming in, hearing the sounds of the monkeys and birds and children playing in the pool, and letting the stress of every day life fade into the distance.
Other things/places we would recommend around the area: The Congo Canopy Tour was a highlight - you spend a couple of hours up in the trees ziplining around. We were there in the dry season - and it really is very dry. But the Congo tour has natural water around it, so it had more of a rainforest feel, and it was cooler from all of the shade than the surrounding areas. We saw lots of monkeys and iguanas - and the kids had a blast. Also - Father Rooster's - one of the best dining experiences I have ever had for the freshness of the fish, the awesome staff, beautiful music, and the amazing view (we even had hermit crab races on the beach after dinner). Oh, and massages on the beach! Finally, for food shopping, I'd recommend the Auto Mercado in Plays del Coco. It is a modern store with lots of food options - but WARNING - do not expect any bargains. The prices were similar to America/Canada, if not higher (outside of some of the fruits). We probably dropped $400 at the market in our 5 days at the house.
Overall, just a pleasure. The owners are awesome and gracious, and we really hope to go back some day. Pura Vida, indeed.
Beautiful location and great access to beach,pool, and restaurant
Cesar and Jacke at the management office were amazingly knowledgeable and kind with our poor Spanish! Edwin and Cesar at Maracuja Restaurant were wonderful and the food was fantastic. We couldn’t have asked for better food and service. The Chief was also amazing. Thank you alll for a wonderful vacation. We will be back!
Perfectly situated / feels like you own the joint!
We brought another couple and 2 children. 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms made this work for a large group. Girls are 5 and 6 - just a staircase down to the pools and wonderful restaurant. Or a short stroll down the hill to the beach and tide pools amongst the volcanic rock. We collected shells, kayaked south to a secluded beach- drank piná coladas by the pools. Many fabulous dishes for lunches and dinners. Downtown has a happening nightlife, shops, Super Markets, gelato and chicken!!! Always feel safe in CR- need a car definitely; most adventures are 1 hr+ away- with the exception of the Congo Trail adventure and Zip line park- thats a must do also. Thank you Bahia Pez Vela for a wonderful taste of the CR. Pure Vida!
Loved the villa
Perfect location for our family with 3 children. Right next to the beach club and pool. Lovely accommodations .. Everything we needed. Roomy . Beach was spectacular.. Staff at beach club so helpful and personable. Would love to do a return visit. Thank you Al for checking to see if we had everything and then some
This place is perfect! Location. Location. Location.
My family and I stayed here for Christmas vacation and we loved it. The location on the beach and right next to the pool was perfect. The layout of the home worked well for the 6 of us. It was a fairly easy drive into town for restaurants, shopping and fishing. Had a bit of a mishap with a window shortly after our arrival and they promptly took care of the problem and made sure that we were all ok and comfortable. We even got to see some monkeys on the last few days of our stay. Would recommend this condo to our friends!
Haley and family,
Thanks so much for staying at our villa. Glad to hear that the moneys came for a visit.
We’re looking forward to your return visit
Carolanne and Alvin
Always love staying at the Flying H Villa. You do not want for anything while staying at this Villa
The property and staff are exceptional. You cannot beat having your own private beach. We found the snorkeling here was the best we saw. We went white water rafting, Rio Celeate tour and of course the Adventure Tour which is a hit with everyone. Our third trip to CR and we will be back.
We are perfectly situated to explore the natural wonders of Costa Rica's six National parks, unspoiled beaches, volcanoes, hot springs, rain forest and diverse wildlife. Enjoy world-class scuba diving, surfing, snorkel ling and deep-sea fishing in the blue waters of the Papagayo Gulf - the gem of the Guanacaste Province. Because the villa is located at Bahia Pez Vela Resort, guests can choose from over 17-guided tours to go on with one of their hand picked English-speaking guides.
Ask us about our transportation option - we offer a personal driver to pick up / drop off at the airport. Discounted/no hassle Vehicle Rental option - you can pick up at the vehicle at the airport or the vehicle can be delivered to the Villa.
