Why Alvin or Carolanne Johns chose Cantón Carrillo

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.

What makes this villa unique

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 many of our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner


I wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time during our stay in your home! The views were incredible, the villa very clean, and we had everything we needed. Your communication and the information you provided prior to our arrival was helpful and appreciated. During our time in Costa Rica, we explored the Llanos de Cortez waterfalls, went on a sailing/snorkeling adventure, traveled up to Rincon de la Vieja for a day of river tubing, ziplining, and horseback riding, and we just enjoyed the beautiful beach. The boys learned to surf in Tamarindo, and they LOVED it! The villa had all the towels we needed, and even snorkeling equipment (masks and snorkels) for all 7 of us! Our mid-week cleaning was quickly arranged with just a phone call.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We hope to return to Costa Rica again. Pura vida!

Awesome Villa at a great resort

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Costa Rica and we lucked out finding this villa. The villa itself is very comfy and has a well stocked kitchen and grill for cooking. The patio has a beautiful ocean view and lots of places to sit out and enjoy. The owner is very friendly and quickly responds to all your questions and provides a wealth of useful information prior to arrival. The resort itself is very nice and we really enjoyed being on a small secluded inlet. There were very few people on the beach and the resort pool wasn't crowded either. The employees at the resort were friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend staying here and look forward to another great vacation at this villa.

Thanks Al!!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults, 3 teenagers) stayed here for 12 days. The villa is amazing. It has everything you need to complete your vacation in paradise. The villa is large, comfortable, and well stocked. The owner, Al, went above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect, including helping with a rental car, suggesting places to visit, and telling us which grocery store he would recommend. The environment is so beautiful, that you don't even need to leave the villa and beach area to have a great time. The view is fantastic, and the snorkeling right off the beach is great. I sure miss going to sleep hearing the waves whooshing on the shore.

Owner's Response: Thanks Sue, We're glad that you had an amazing time with the family. Funny you should mention about staying at the resort. When our granddaughters come to visit for the month in January and February, their favourite time is hanging around the beach. We try to do an activity every other day outside the resort. God forbid if we ever change our date at the beach. It's an awesome location and we're glad to share it with you. We hope you'll turn someday soon Al and Carolanne

Great place to stay! What you see is what you get!!

  • 5 of 5

Ending a beautiful week here in Costa Rica! We had a great trip due largely in part to Al who made booking the villa and all the details super easy and also Cesar in the front office who not only arranged our transportation to and from the airport but also helped us book tours, etc. Fantastic staff at the resort only enhanced our experience.

The villa was everything it was advertised to be!!! Clean and tastefully decorated, the villa is located a mere 10 steps to the pool and just a few hundred yards from the most beautiful private beach I've ever seen. Great place for a relaxing trip away with the girls or a low-key, hang at the beach week with your family. The pool and the beach were rarely crowded and most mornings (being early risers) we had the entire beach and pool to ourselves. It was almost like being on your own island with modern amenities!!!! We did not rent a car while we were here and I do not feel that we missed out on anything by not doing so. While the resort itself seems fairly isolated and unspoiled, when we wanted to go into town it was just a short taxi ride away. In town, you can easily walk the strip between Coco Beach and the main drag so shopping and dining was easy and hassle free.

We will definitely recommend this rental to our friends and family back home and hope to come again ourselves in the near future!!

Owner's Response: Dear Beth, Thank you for your kind comments! We are so happy that you and your family were able to enjoy our little slice of paradise! Having the beach and pools steps away from our door is very special.. I agree with you, that time early in the morning when the beach is yours alone is very special. Hope you are able to make it back soon. Al and Carolanne
