BEACHFRONT VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL, 3 BR/2.5 BA SLEEPS 8-10

Playa Ocotal House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeper sofa, sleeps 8-10

Villa Las Olas (Villa 4) is one of four beachfront villas in Bahia Pez Vela, a resort community of 40 privately owned villas on a secluded ebony beach. A private, jetted pool, Italian stone and wood patio, and 'next to the forest' location (end villa) distinguishes Villa Las Olas for its luxury and its privacy.

The villa is fully air-conditioned (mini-splits in each of the bedroom for individual control), and each room has screens and an overhead fan to enjoy the pleasant ocean breezes and sounds of this tropical paradise.

The master bedroom has King bed, a balcony with rocking chairs that overlooks the ocean, full closet, cable television and an attached private full bath. The second bedroom is also ocean front, and has two full beds, cable television, a dresser and full closet. It is a large and airy room. The third bedroom has two twin beds, a dresser, space for the infant 'Pack and Play' bed and changing table, cable television, and a garden view. All beds are made up with mattress pads, fresh linens, and light duvets or coverlets. Pillows are new, fluffy, and ample in number.

The main level has a very open lay-out with French doors to the pool and beach from both the living room and the dining room. The living room includes a comfortable sleeper sofa, two matching chairs, and cable television. The dining room seats six. The fully-equipped kitchen is spacious, and includes a breakfast 'bar' that seats four, refrigerator with ice maker, cooking range and oven, dishwasher and microwave. Directly off the kitchen is a utility room with a full washer and dryer, an iron and an ironing pad, and a safe for your valuables.

In addition to the amenities noted above, the villa is furnished with towels, beach towels, kitchen and dinner ware (including sharp, new knives!), a Weber grill, pool side furniture, hair dryers (2), games, puzzles, books, Costa Rica guides and maps, soap, dishwashing detergent, blender, toaster, coffee grinder and maker and rice maker.

The resort's onsite restaurant, Picante, provides bar, lunch and dinner service next to the three pool complex beachside. It's a romantic spot for dinner, fun place to meet other residents, and serves excellent North American and Costa Rican dishes at reasonable prices. Staff will also deliver food to your villa should you choose to dine in.

The resort concierge is available to answer all of your questions and to arrange sight-seeing and adventure tours that may interest you. Security is on-site 24/7. Maid service is available through the concierge.

While tranquil Bahia Pez Vela seems an ocean away from the busy world, it's a short drive to the village of Coco, a funky beach town that hosts fabulous grocery stores, very good restaurants, gift shops, and lively nightlife.

We're a Minnesota family of five that spent the ten spring breaks at Bahia Pez Vela -- and finally bought!

LaRaye purchased this house in 2012

Bahia Pez Vela is the most beautiful, private, and conveniently located resort development on the Nicoya Peninsula, in our opinion. It is unique for its beautiful grounds, spacious villas, wonderful on-site restaurant, great snorkeling, and close proximity to the airport! Villa Las Olas is, in our opinion, the best villa in the development. The pool area is magnificent. The beach is 100 feet from your door. The villa is very private and visited frequently by howler monkeys and beautiful tropical birds!

We fell in love with our home for its privacy, fabulous pool, closeness to the clean and protected private beach, generously helpful staff -- and the sound of the waves, the gentle breezes, the warm surf, and the spectacular flowers!

Fabulous Spring Break!

This was one of the best trips that we as a family ever took. It was made even better by the wonderful villa and staff at bahia pez vela. The fabulous ocean view, wonderful restaurant, and kind staff made this a wonderful get away. We spent plenty of time at the pool and enjoyed the beautiful black volcanic sand beaches. It was in a great location, close enough to restaurants and shops, but far a enough away from the hustle and bustle of coco beach. Caesar and Isabel in the office were fabulous for setting up fun adventures, including a fishing/snorkeling expedition as well as a wonderful tour to Monteverde were we went on a canopy tour and visited the butterfly gardens. All and all a great trip and wonderful accommodation. LaRaye is a gem!!

Family vacation

This Villa worked out perfectly for our family vacation of 6 adults. The location of the Villa is: 1. Right off the beach. 2. On a quiet, dead-end street. 3. Very near(2 minute walk) an excellent restaurant. 4. Easy access by car or taxi to shopping.
This property not only has easy access to the beach but is one of the few Villas in this area with its own pool.
The staff, including the concierge, were extremely responsive to our questions. They also recommended and scheduled activities away from the Villa - such as zip-lining, horseback riding, river tubing, etc. All members of our group rated these activities as excellent.
The Villa itself was clean, air conditioned, had a kitchen we used, and a washer and dryer, all well-maintained.
The owner provided a informational packet which provided important information about every aspect of the trip from arrival to departure. This packet was an important piece to the success of our time in CR. We used this packet to choose activities, attractions, and restaurants. We enjoyed all of the recommendations that we used..
I have already recommended this property to friends. Our sons said it was the best vacation they had ever been on.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for staying with us, and particular thanks for mentioning that the informational "Costa Rica Notes" was of value to you. I put a lot of work into that document, because I want our guests to be prepared to navigate immediately upon arrival and because I like to share parts of the Costa Rica experience that have been magical for our family. We want you to have your best family vacation ever!

Villa Las Olas is a slice of Paradise!

My wife and I visited Costa Rica for the first time and were fortunate enough to find this very comfortable house that felt like a bit of paradise. Owner LaRaye was very accommodating and helped prepare us for a great visit to a beautiful country. The resort complex office staff Cesar and Isabella were most helpful with all of our questions and recommendations for off site activities, tours, car rentals, restaurants, and anything else we needed.
This house is in a gated community with 24hr security which added to our relaxation. Many mornings we were pleasantly awakened to the sound of the howler monkeys literally just out side our bedroom balcony doors over our private swimming pool. Numerous birds around the property including parrots nesting in a termite hive next to the patio and 3 types of herons in the trees above and on the patio.
Pool and patio was cleaned of leaves every morning. What service!
The restaurant Picante is conveniently less than 200 yards away from the house provided a nice poolside open atmosphere with very nice meals including local seafood selections.
Very quiet beach is also less than 200 yards from the house and is a great place for swimming and snorkeling but too calm for surfing or boogie boarding at least while we were there, but great for smaller children.
We are looking forward to returning to this wonderful property with our family including grandson and our friends.

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure to work with you! Thank you very much for choosing our home for your Costa Rica stay. I truly hope we have opportunity to work together again -- this time "up north!"

Very nice property

We enjoyed the stay, had some problems but all in all, great stay!

We started out 2 families of 3 (4 adults, 2 children both aged 4) after 2.5 weeks, my wife child and myself stayed for another week and a half. It was a wonderful month in Costa Rica. The location of this unit is nice. It's far enough from Coco Beach that it's nice and quiet, but close enough that you are only 7-8 minutes from getting everything that you need. 25 minutes to airport. If you have never been to Costa Rica, GET A GPS FROM CAR RENTAL COMPANY. We have been to CR for over 2 months in total now, and still get a gps unit. There is no such thing as street sign's, yet the gps will have the most crazy backroads loaded up.
Unit's are clean, well spaced (we spent 90% of our time outside), and this unit is great being only steps from the beach, and your own pool. With that being said, one week, maybe 2 at the most is all I could take with the waves crashing only 100 feet from the bedroom window. Growing up on the west coast, it almost pains me to say that it was a nuisance.
Only one word can describe the staff here, phenomenal. Cesar in reception and the ladies working with him are great. Have you "heard" of a place to go? Take the name to them and they know where to send you. Cesar and Laura in the resturaunt are too great to talk about. Food there, tell you what, never had a bad meal in the whole country.

The bad part......In no way the owner LaRaye's fault

Some of the other unit OWNERS don't really seem to care a lot about the other renters. This is being said after spending a whole month on the property. LaRaye is great, but while we were there there was construction going on 3 doors down (about 50 feet away). This was started between 06:30-07:00, 7 days a week. We being the typical nice canadians left it becuase we know the job needed to be done. If you have any problems don't leave them. Talk to Cesar right away, he will pass the info on to LaRaye. Laraye got this fixed, and was truely sorry for the noise. But remember, Tico's get to work at this time because the don't work during the heat of the day. But..... the new deck does look nice hahahaha.

Great property, great people, only a matter of time before we buy something in Costa Rica ourselves. I would recomend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Cameron. We are very pleased that you, you family, and your friends had a great stay! I am glad that you advised me of your concern about noise from work at a another home. That gave me opportunity to contact those homeowners, who responded immediately so that the issue was resolved within a few hours of my receipt of your email. Thank you, too, for the recognition of our staff. They are very committed to providing wonderful experiences to our guests and, like everyone, are energized by positive feedback.

Pura vida!

Best family vacation ever

  • Submitted: Jul 20, 2013

We loved the serenity infinity pool of villa #4, making for an indescribably relaxing vacation for husband, wife, and four kids aged 4-15. Everything was clean and comfortable, and the villa was well-stocked with beach and bath towels, kitchen supplies, even a nice, little collection of DVD movies for grown-ups as well as kids. We loved how close we were to the beach and snorkeling and to Picante, an awesome open-air restaurant with great service and delicious food, overlooking the villa's three-level pool which in turn overlooked the beautifuly Pez Vela Bay. My husband and I also took a walk on the coastline to the next beach, climbing rocks and passing little streams as the tide came in and out (be careful mossy surfaces). We saw great birds and howler monkeys and also enjoyed a massage or two on the beach. Thanks so much also to owner LaRaye who was a great communicator and always very responsive to questions, etc. It was our best family vacation ever. The people in reception were also very professional and friendly. Loved it.

Located on the grounds of the former fishing camp of Mark Tupper of Tupperware fame, this secluded and very secure resort houses 40 privately owned villas. The very private ebony beach provides world class snorkeling, calm waters for swimming, and fascinating tide pools that are full of sea life. Resort grounds are immaculate and feature a large grassy lawn between the villa and the beach, beautifully maintained blooming shrubs and flowers, and mature trees. The wildlife is abundant -- howler monkeys frequently munch the leaves from the trees in front of the villa, green parakeets chatter as they dart from one tree to another, blue green mot mots show off frequently, and the occasional blue jay, iguana and gecko can be spotted. If you can tear yourself away from the beach and your private pool, the nearby town of Coco is lively, fun and safe. Golf at Papagayo Golf in Sardinal, or go a bit further to Pinillas. Spend a half day deep sea fishing and bring yellow fin tuna, grouper and snapper home to the chef at the resort's on-site restaurant Picante for special treatment. Great diving is can be arranged in Coco, as can sail boat adventures. Venture inland to Volcan Arenal or Rincon de la Vieja and take in ziplines, volcanic mud baths and hot springs, white water rafting and horseback rides in the high country. Drive the 'Monkey Trail' to beaches to the south, including Ostional for early morning turtle hatching, Tamarindo for its surf, and Conchal for a sunset at the beach restaurant in Brasilito. All this within 25 minutes of the airport!
