“Perfect vacation stay”
My family and I rented this villa for 2 weeks. We had everything we needed. The staff were there for all our needs efficiently. We got all the help and accommodations we needed. It is very close to the beach and to the pool. Alvin was very patient with all of our questions and guided us perfectly through out the process. We highly recommended this villa to all of friends that want to visit Costa Rica. We would definitely rent this villa again.
5 STAR - Top notch accommodations! We could not have asked for a better place to stay! Clean, comfortable (beds were fantastic) & perfectly decorated. The hospitality both before & during our stay was above average! The beachfront villa had the most breath taking view & private lagoon style setting with black sand that glistened from the sun like gold just steps from the front door. The 3 tier pool was spotless & the grounds were impeccably groomed! Paradise on the Pacific!
Response from the owner Thanks Karen and Chris - it was a total pleasure having you stay in Villa Cala. I enjoyed every minute of our conversations in planning your vacation. Glad you were able to see part of Costa Rica on your adventures and that the 3-dive at Bat Island was successful. I particularly enjoy looking at the pictures on Facebook. We're also glad you found the upgraded beds to your liking. I look forward to a return visit in the future. Enjoy the summer. Alvin and Carolanne
“Absolutely the right choice in places to stay!”
This Villa was Beautiful, spacious, clean, right on the beach, gorgeous setting, ....I could go on and on. Oh and the beds were actually very comfortable! The greatest thing about renting this Villa was Alvin Johns (the owner) I have never rented a vacation place that the owner took such great care of me. He was helpful in every aspect. I called and emailed him with questions often. He always responded in a timely manner and not only answered all my questions but also offered suggestions and ideas for us to make our stay more pleasurable! He even went so far as to contact us during our stay to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of- Also everyone who worked in ANY capacity at this resort were all so nice and always helpful. If I ever do go back to Costa Rica this will be the FIRST place I look to rent!
Response from the owner Karen, What a beautiful personality you have. So full of life, you seem to embody all the fantastic activities that Costa Rica has to offer – diving, horseback riding, zip lining, mountain climbing, tubing, mud baths. I’m sure I missed some, plus experiencing the number of excellent restaurants and the night life in Coco. I enjoyed our conversations and extremely happy you enjoyed the villa, the resort and the local areas. It would be a pleasure to have you return in the future. Enjoy your summer. Alvin and Carolanne
“Beautiful spot! Relax, adventure, eat shop ... whatever you wish is at your fingertips.”
We had a terrific time at Bahia Pez Vela Resort. The Villa is decorated beautifully and is warm and welcoming and has absolutely everything you could possibly need --- the kitchen is fully equipped and new! The private beach is fantastic for snorkelling - and just a few steps away from the Villa. There is so much to do and see in Costa Rica. The owners are helpful and provide excellent information on all there is to do. If you desire quiet and serenity, it's all yours. The infinity pool, bar and restaurant are steps from the Villa. The restaurant offers a full menu with a variety of freshly prepared meals If you are more of an adventurer, the Villa is well located and a short distrance from shopping, surfing, zip lining, thermal bdistance from restaurantsaths and many of country's beautiful national parks. It's the perfect spot for families, singles or a retreat with friends. We can't wait to get back!
We had the most amazing experience staying in this Villa. It has absolutely everything you would need/have at home. The entire grounds/office staff at Bahia are not only extremely nice, but beyond helpful as well. We ate out every day (for 2 weeks) and our favourite restaurant was Picante's at Bahia- the Mahi Mahi was the freshest around. We also loved Claudio Y Gloria, Pacifico Beach Club and Citron; all within a 5 minute drive from the Villa in Coco Beach. We did all of our grocery shopping at auto Mercado which is where we found the freshest food. The staff are beyond helpful in trying to find things that you are used to seeing at home. The day trips to the Canopy Tour, Bourinquen Mountain Resort & Spa and Deep Sea Fishing were memories we will never forget. If you catch fish while on the Deep Sea Fishing trip, they will clean it for you and Picante's will cook it for you for free- you only pay for the sides!! I speak English only and my husband is fluent in Spanish, however, every single person we came into contact with does speak English so Spanish is not needed at all. We became extremely close to the staff at Picante's and still communicate back and forth. Everyone who was either renting or that owns a Villa was so sweet and kind- we made lifelong friends that we will never forget and hope to meet up with them again one day at Bahia Pez Vela. The beach is private and there are a few different pools that can be used on site. This is where we spent most of our time with day trips to see a few other beaches. Snorkeling and swimming in your private backyard! We cannot wait to go back and hope to do so very soon. I would recommend this to couples as well as families. Best trip ever!!
Have to say I was very impressed with all of Costa Rica, our Villa was top notch, super clean, amazing view and sounds of the ocean tucked away in a little cove. One night the sound of the waves crashing on the beach was so loud I had to wear earplugs :) The people are super friendly, the countryside very lush, initially I was a little apprehensive driving but turns out it's very easy to get around even with a big minivan (tks again Economy rentals). Service and info provided by Caesar the Villa manager was great, he helped us pick a couple of excursions, I highly recommend the sunset cruise!! Restaurant on site had amazing food and service, Laura was an amazing waitress, many tks!!
“Great house right on the beach and good people to rent from.”
What a great house! This place is real nice. The house is right on the beach and is just a great house. All of the communication was done timely and information was great for the area. All emails answered right away and it was a pleasant experience putting the rental together. We called this Scuba house because we came to this area to Scuba Dive and relax. My expectations were that I could do a few shore dives right from the beach and we did. A lot of cool stuff to the right and left side of the cove. We also went out for several boat dives with Rocket Frog Divers. They are located right around the corner and are the closest dive operation. If you came to this area to dive they are the best folks to go diving with. They have a Zodiac boat that is the same model used by Coast Guard and Navy Seals. Real fast boat and really smooth so you get to the dive sites in half the time of the others. Also the owner is a marine biologist and we literally saw everything on the wild life card from Sharks to Eagle Rays. The relaxing part was real easy and the place was perfect and private. All and all a great experience and we will be back but the next time we will stay longer.
Our stay at the resort exceeded our expectations and al and Carolanne did a great job ensuring we had the information we needed. Their property is great and being beside the pool was truly a bonus. The resort staff was extremely helpful especially since we did a number of day trips exploring the local beaches and villages. A great destination for a great time. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend their property to family and friends. We hope to return.
“A wonderful villa and very memorable vacation”
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and our first vacation with our kids (1 and 4). My in-laws were also traveling with us. It took us several weeks to book this place but we were so happy we did. After a few travel day hiccups, we were very impressed by the welcoming staff at Bahia Pez Vela and the house, it's location and all of it's amenities. The house was perfect for a family with young kids. It was very spacious, clean and had a wonderful view. The owners have really thought of everything. The house is only a few minutes from Playas del Coco where we went shopping, had dinner and enjoyed interacting with the locals. It's true what other reviews say, some days you have the beach all to your self. It was a great place and we will definitely recommend this villa to anyone traveling to Costa Rica.
“A step back in time with lots of sunshine.”
Our location was in the middle of tranquility. Balmy breezes moderated the welcome heat. The beach at the bottom of the hill was so convenient. Steps to the ocean. The almost private bar and restaurant two doors away with swimming pools enjoyable. An overall positively relaxing experience.
