Carolanne Johns purchased this villa in 2003

Why Carolanne Johns chose Cantón Carrillo

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!

This place is perfect! Location. Location. Location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for Christmas vacation and we loved it. The location on the beach and right next to the pool was perfect. The layout of the home worked well for the 6 of us. It was a fairly easy drive into town for restaurants, shopping and fishing. Had a bit of a mishap with a window shortly after our arrival and they promptly took care of the problem and made sure that we were all ok and comfortable. We even got to see some monkeys on the last few days of our stay. Would recommend this condo to our friends!

Cesar and Jacke at the management office were amazingly knowledgeable and kind with our poor Spanish! Edwin and Cesar at Maracuja Restaurant were wonderful and the food was fantastic. We couldn’t have asked for better food and service. The Chief was also amazing. Thank you alll for a wonderful vacation. We will be back!

Perfectly situated / feels like you own the joint!

  • 5 of 5

We brought another couple and 2 children. 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms made this work for a large group. Girls are 5 and 6 - just a staircase down to the pools and wonderful restaurant. Or a short stroll down the hill to the beach and tide pools amongst the volcanic rock. We collected shells, kayaked south to a secluded beach- drank piná coladas by the pools. Many fabulous dishes for lunches and dinners. Downtown has a happening nightlife, shops, Super Markets, gelato and chicken!!! Always feel safe in CR- need a car definitely; most adventures are 1 hr+ away- with the exception of the Congo Trail adventure and Zip line park- thats a must do also. Thank you Bahia Pez Vela for a wonderful taste of the CR. Pure Vida!

Always love staying at the Flying H Villa. You do not want for anything while staying at this Villa

  • 5 of 5

The property and staff are exceptional. You cannot beat having your own private beach. We found the snorkeling here was the best we saw. We went white water rafting, Rio Celeate tour and of course the Adventure Tour which is a hit with everyone. Our third trip to CR and we will be back.
