Carolanne Johns purchased this villa in 2003

Why Carolanne Johns chose Playa Ocotal

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Carolanne & Al,



I just wanted to email you and tell you how much we enjoyed our time in Costa Rica! We loved Villa 10!! The family decided unanimously that we would love to go back next year and rent Villa 10 again. Juan, Kenneth and Cesar at Picante were great! The ladies there even cooked some fish for us that we had bought for my birthday.



Cesar and Jackie in the Office were also very helpful. Thank you so much for all the information you gave us about CR. We went to Borinquen and did the horseback riding, zip lining, mud baths and tubs.



The kiddos also took surfing lessons in Tamarindo. We went through Point Break Surf, which was great. When we got into Tamarindo, there was a guy from another surf shop who came up to us and was going to take our kids out. I had wanted to check out Point Break and without telling them about the other place, they said that the kids would have to go around 3:00 when the tide was higher because it was not safe for them to go out at that time (too high a risk of injuries with the lower tide). If you haven't used them, I would highly recommend Point Break.



Again, just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing your Villa with us! We loved our time there! We hope it will be available for us next spring break.

Pura Vida!

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family (all adults) vacationed here for a week and loved it. The villa was clean and well appointed. The kitchen was brand new and the furniture and beds were very comfortable. Being right next to the private beach, at night we slept to the waves crashing on the coast. The beach was amazing with parrots and other birds in the trees. Tons of colorful fish including eels, puffers, and rays. We had a great time snorkeling. Not to mention, we practically had the whole place to ourselves! For a change of pace, you can visit their beautiful pool and relax. The town of Coco is a bumpy and hilly 10 minute drive away. However, driving around is easy. We did food shopping here and went out to dinner a few times. There were many good restaurants and we did not have a bad meal once. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. We always felt safe and welcomed. Arenal and other parks and activities are relatively close by and worth doing if you can pry yourself away from the beach. The only disappointment was that the resort restaurant was not open due to us visiting during the off season. It would have been convenient.

Memories are made here!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage son and I spent a week at the Villa. The Village is spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped. My son an I had a terrific time snorkeling and body surfing at the private beach just steps away. The pool, pool bar and Picante Restaurant are also steps away from the villa. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The Villa is in close proximity to many of the beautiful sights to see in Costa Rica. We had a terrific time and will be back next year.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this villa! We stayed there with our young kids and it was perfect. It was right next to the pool which we nearly had to ourselves. Everything that we needed was at the villa- boogie boards,snorkling gear,beach toys and chairs. It has a wonderful view. If we come back to the area, we will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic location and set up, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to have stayed here among all the choices one has. Bahia Pez Vela in general was the perfect spot for us (family with two young kids). Very private beach with few visitors compared to so many, safe for swimming and snorkeling (Costa Rican beaches can have serious riptides, waves and undertows--this was relatively calm). Clean. The resort is made up of a cluster of villas with very well kept grounds, a very convenient restaurant, Picante, serving excellent food, and pools. Cesar in the office was a pleasure to work with and all staff were courteous and helpful.

While the resort has a very private feel, it also offers easy access to Coco (with lots of restaurants, shops and grocery stores) as well as the main Ocotal beach (restaurant such as Father Roosters, scuba diving shop, fishing, etc.) For us it was the best of both worlds--proximity to conveniences when we wanted them yet a private, clean and safe area to relax and enjoy the paradise.

This villa is spacious, comfortable and in very clean condition. Kitchen is stocked with utensils and appliances and the laundry room has laundry as well as snorkeling equipment and a collection of sand toys and such that were helpful for us. Remember to bring laundry detergent or buy some, as well as shampoo. Otherwise, the house is set with supplies.

The owner was very responsive before and during the trip. On our first day there, the a/c in the living room was on the fritz. We contacted the owner directly as reception was closed being saturday night and he helped us right away with troubleshooting. When that didn't work he made sure to line up help. It was Easter Sunday and yet first thing in the morning it was repaired. Really appreciated the responsiveness of the owner and the crew.

It was paradise! I highly recommend both the villa as well as the resort in general. A wonderful set up.

A really enjoyable stay at a beautiful resort. Loved the layout of e unit and it's proximity to the ocean, pool and restaurant. Cesar and Isabelle from the resort reception office were very helpful and helped us line up a rental car and fishing trip.
