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!

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place for a family. Nice, quiet beach surrounded by the beautiful Costa Rican rain forest. You really feel like you have the place to yourself as the landscaping surrounds the villa and gives it a very secluded feel. We were able to see a family of howler monkeys in the trees, raccoons on our patio, variegated squirrels that kept us entertained chasing each other in the trees and many beautiful birds.The villa itself was wonderful. It was clean, comfortable and homey. The staff, especially Cesar and Jackie, are extremely helpful and nice. Al is very responsive and provides a lot of guidance and information that assist in planning your vacation. There are boogie boards, snorkel equipment and beach chairs at the villa for your use which we thoroughly enjoyed. We spent many an hour lounging on the patio or the beach with a cup of coffee or glass of wine enjoying the surrounding beauty and our kids were fully entertained. We also enjoyed renting paddle boards and kayaks from Cesar at the beach club. Our only disappointment was the restaurant has changed from Picante which I had read great reviews on to Maracuya Beach Club which was pricey for a family of six. The food and service were good, but for us it wasn't a family friendly price. I believe the restaurant is still in its developmental stage and they are asking for feed back in order to have it meet the needs of the guests, so that might change. Overall I highly recommend this villa and location. I am hoping to return with my family again! Thanks Al, Cesar and Jackie!

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!!
