About Neil & Verda Hutcheson

Living in Atlanta affords us the opportunity to visit our villa often for both the enjoyment as well as the necessity of freshening and maintain the villa so renters will always have a wonderful experience. Costa Rica has so much to offer and the Flying H Villa is an outstanding place to relax and enjoy the sounds and views of the ocean after a day of adventure or lounging by the pool.

We take pride in the villa décor and amenities and the reviews support our dedication.

Neil & Verda Hutcheson purchased this villa in 2013

Why Neil & Verda Hutcheson chose Costa Rica

The resort offers everything you need to have a great vacation, and is close to the village of Playa Coco so you can stock up on whatever is needed and have the convenience of restaurants, banks, shopping and night spots. We have met some of the greatest families and truly enjoy helping them with memories they will cherish.

What makes this villa unique

We also own another villa at Bahia Pez Vela, #87837 and we have enjoyed the property and staff immensely. This Beach Front Villa gives us another wonderful opportunity to share Costa Rica in a way that brings great pleasure to our guests,

Everything was perfect ! We will stay here again !!!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa has the best location in this 40 unit community. It is right on the beach, next to the restaurant (Picante) and the 2 level pool. The 3 bedrooms were all nicely furnished, all the furniture appeared to be new. The baths were modern and the kitchen was awesome ! Freshly remodeled with some cool granite on the counters and a blueish marble on the island. The lighting and decorations were also great. There is a table with chairs and a living room set out on the huge patio. At least half of your time is outside so that is a big deal. The snorkeling is great, especially on the north end of the beach, saw some sting rays and assorted fish. Many days had howler monkeys in the trees we could watch. Restaurant food is good & very handy having next door - Caesar takes care of everyone. You can rent paddleboards, kayaks, jet skis, etc. right on beach. The community is about 10 minutes from town (Playas de Coco). Better with a car, but our neighbors just took taxis/shuttles. Many restaurants in town & Father Roosters is cool - on the beach. The owners of this unit, Verda & Neil, are awesome. They were so helpful with suggestions - and they provided a list of restaurants, markets, etc. We felt like we had been there before just by all the helpful info they supplied. Our deposit was refunded without asking (you would be surprised how many times we need to remind other owners a week or 2 later). We will definitely stay here again !

This is truly a special place from the meticulously maintained villa and grounds to the helpful and courteous staff. Neil and Verda are easy to deal with and promptly replied to all questions. Starting out the day with coffee on the patio watching and listening to the ocean and howler monkeys was a peaceful and relaxing way to wake-up. Local restaurants are good with reasonable prices, and there is a modern, clean, well-stocked supermarket (Auto Mercado) in nearby Coco.The restaurant on-site, Picante, is very good and convenient; particularly on the day of your arrival. Another easy dinner is take-out pizza from the nearby La Cavaja restaurant - surprisingly good pizza and gave us a chance to enjoy an evening at the villa. For a sunset dinner on the beach La Casita Del Marisco in Playa Hermosa has a wonderful view and great food - take your appetite. If you are looking for a special dinner try Villa Italia; the atmosphere is warm and inviting and the food is fresh and homemade. You would have to go to South Philly to find something to compare. For activities: Playa Penca is a nearby pristine beach with great snorkeling - well worth the drive and hike. The Cortez Waterfall was beautiful, a cool place to take a swim under the fall, and a great place to take a packed lunch - if you are adventurous you can hike up to the top of the waterfall for a great view. Horseback riding to the beach at the local "monkey farm" was a blast. The horses were well-mannered and the staff was very friendly. The zip line adventure and natural habitat zoo at Diamante brought lots of smiles (get the buffet lunch - well worth it), and the diving with Rocket Frog is close, although the visibility was not great during our stay due to some strong currents. After exploring, the beautiful pool at the resort was a great place to cool off and reflect on the wonderful day.

Beautiful Villa, perfect for two couples!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I always travel with our good friends and are always looking for that place that gives both couples the same experience. Well we found it. Both bedrooms were beach front with king beds and we each had our own full bathrooms. We loved it. The villa was exceptional, the kitchen had just been updated in Nov. just prior to our arrival and was gorgeous. The convenience to the beach, pool and Picante restaurant was perfect. We stayed for a fabulous 2 weeks in the villa and loved every minute. We enjoyed the wild life around the villa, monkeys, birds, raccoons. We also experienced fantastic massages on the beach and our patio (thank you Lydia and Jose), fishing, zip lining, river tubing, surf lessons, the rain forest at Lost Iguana and feeding the white faced monkey's. Everyone that we came in contact with were so nice and helpful. A shout out to Cesar at Picante and Jackie and Cesar in the office. One of the highlights was actually getting to meet Verda. She was there during our 2nd week. From start to finish Verda was so helpful. She answered the millions of questions I had prior to our arrival which made our stay unforgettable. We were also pleasantly surprised with a gift bag, with a few goodies to get us started. The villa was very clean and Verda has exceptional taste when it comes to decorating their villas. When at the villa we did spend 95% of our time out on the patio, that has comfortable furniture, a grill and dining table. The pictures absolutely show this villa perfectly. We can not wait to return to Costa Rica one day and will be contacting Verda when we do.

Pura Vida!

Most beautiful villa ever!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with 2 couples down to Verda and Neil's beautiful villa and stayed for 8 nights. From the minute we pulled in the driveway we knew we had the made the perfect choice. We all looked at one another and smiled as we couldn't believe this was going to be our 'home' for the next 9 days. Everything inside was top notch, very high end, and clean! The beds were sooooo comfortable and laying in bed at night watching the ocean was unbelievable. We spent most of our time outside on the patio on the most comfortable wicker furniture ever. We especially loved laying in the sun and when it got too hot we rested on the patio in the shade. We snorkelled on the beach and enjoyed many walks up and down the beach as well. Our husbands were picked up 3 times for fishing right off the beach, thank you captain Roy! We loved watching him back up the boat and our husbands jumping in. They did catch fish, a little disappointed that they didn't catch a sailfish but that will have to happen on another trip. The restaurant Picante was just a few steps away from villa and we ate there a couple of times. The food was so good, services was great and Ceaser makes the best drinks! We did get picked up one morning from Randall our tour guide and we spent the morning floating down a river on a boat watching the wild life. We saw howler monkies, white faced monkeys, an ant eater, tons of birds and crocodiles. After our boating tour we were driven up in the hills to a wonderful house and then 2 ladies cooked us a typical Costa Rican breakfast, it was amazing. The 4 of us are already scouting places for next year but will stay longer next time. We are definitely thinking about Verda's place again as this was the best vacation ever! Would highly recommend this place. Verda was terrific in that she provided all sorts of information about things to see while we were there and the welcome gifts she left for us was icing on the cake. Thank you Verda and Neil for sharing your home........Pura Vida........

Awesome Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this Villa for a family vacation with my husband and parents. It exceeded our expectations. The Villa is beautifully decorated from top to bottom, spacious and is steps away from the ocean. We hunted for shells right on the beach. Two of the bedrooms have ocean views. The master even has its own balcony. Very comfortable beds and bedding. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for cooking. The large outdoor covered patio is a great place to have coffee in the morning while listening to the waves crashing into the ocean. The view is spectacular and the large pool is only a few feet away. The grounds are lush with trees and flowers and are very well kept. Verda was very helpful in answering any questions and had many suggestions for activities. I mentioned it was going to be my Dad's birthday during our stay and we were delighted to find a birthday cake waiting for us in the refrigerator with a card/gift. The personal touches really made a difference. We rented a car which you could park right into the attached car port which was nice. Coco is only a 10 minute drive into town if you are looking for shops, restaurants or night life. Cabs are also available. You can walk right over to Picante Restaurant which also has a great view of the ocean. Verda mentioned they had entertainment on Wednesday nights which did not disappoint. Overall it was a great vacation and I would love to come back and rent this Villa again. Fabulous!

Flying H Villa - Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

This villa and the surrounding property are stunning - exactly as shown on the website, and it has all the amenities to make you feel at home. Verda and Neil are amazing hosts, and provided lots of helpful information before and during our stay.

We stayed for one week and managed quite well without renting a vehicle, although after assimilating to the area, a vehicle may have been nice for a couple days. However Jackie and Cesar in the office, were great to book excursions for us that picked us up right at the villa. We booked personal transit from the airport to the villa in advance, and made arrangements with them to stop at a grocery store on the way, ready with a list to get groceries for the week - Auto Mercado is a fairly new grocery store and had everything we needed.

Villa 1 is ideally located oceanfront and right next to the infinity pool that overlooks the bay, and the Picante restaurant. Meals were very good at the Picante, and we also enjoyed live entertainment and dancing there on Wednesday evening. We walked to Father Rooster Restaurant (about twenty minutes), which was very good as well. Taxi rides to the small town of Playa Coco are $10 each way for shopping or restaurants.

We were awakened every morning by the sound of howler monkeys, and did see them in the trees next door on occasion. We were also fortunate to see whales spouting and jumping in the bay right in front of the villa. The magpie Jays right at the villa are very friendly, but will be your guests for the week if you feed them. Hermit crabs can be seen with a flashlight on the beach, by the rocks after dark. Lots of entertaining wildlife!

Wouldn't hesitate to return!
