Bahia Pez Vela is a beautiful villa village built into the Costa Rican countryside. The Flying H Villa (villa #1) is awesome. The interior and exterior decor is amazing and comfortable. The location to the pool, restaurant, and beach could not be better, literally just steps away to anything, but yet very private due to the abundance of tropical plants surrounding the villa. We kayaked from our beach to a white pristine beach a couple miles south and we saw a whale on our return kayak to our beach. We saw and heard Howler monkeys everyday in the trees surrounding the villas. We went fishing and caught two tuna and a beautiful ~50 pound blue Rooster fish. We had the chef at the Bahia Pez Vela Picante Restaurant prepare the tuna for us for dinner that evening. We did day trips to the Cortez Waterfalls and sailboating from Coco beach. The infinity pool was so refreshing and the view of the beach and bay was breathtaking. Cesar and Juan at the onsite Picante Restaurant took excellent care of us and the meals we had there were absolutely delicious. Neil and Verda were so easy to deal with and had plenty of ideas for excursions and restaurants. We had busy days and we had relaxing time by the pool. It was the perfect combination to a very awesome vacation.
Bahia Pez Vela is beautiful! The villa and its location are spectacular! The villa had plenty of room for our family of 4. The kitchen had everything you could need. The 3 bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable and there are 3 bathrooms. We spent most mornings on the patio enjoying the peace and quiet watching and listening to the waves! You are just steps from the the ocean which has a beautiful beach with soft sand. It's in a small cove that is nice and quiet, except when you hear the howler monkeys! Unfortunately we didn't get to see them. The restaurant and pool were right next door. Verda provided us with great information regarding excursions, restaurants, grocery shopping and even rental car information. We zip lined at Diamanté. It had a mile long superman style zip line! We went deep sea fishing only catching one Black finned Tuna but the captain kept us entertained watching whales, Dolphins, stingrays, sea turtles and sail fish. There is so much to do that we would love to go back! Thank you so much Verda and Neil
As we were looking for a place to stay in Costa Rica, we discovered the Flying H Villa on Trip Advisor. The pictures drew me in first, but then the great reviews really sold me on this place. After talking with the owners, Neil and Verda, I knew this was the place for our group. The house had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked. We also enjoyed the grill outside.
The beach is not huge, but it also was not crowded while we were there. Very nice. Several of us also enjoyed a massage on the beach. The first morning we were there, we heard and saw several howler monkeys in nearby trees. So cool!
This villa is right next to the main swimming pool at Bahia Pez Vela. I worried that it might be too close – that the noise of other swimmers might be bothersome. But the beautiful landscaping at this villa offered a lot of privacy. We were never bothered by the noise. And the back porch furniture was very comfortable. As a group, we were always out there relaxing versus being inside the house.
The entire resort was beautifully landscaped and very well maintained. We ate at the restaurant twice while we were there. The food was great. And Thursday night they had live entertainment and we all learned to do the Salsa!
In summary, it’s a great place to stay whether you want to stay there and relax for an entire week. Or use it as your hub for other adventures as we did, it’s a great place to stay.
Working with Verda was awesome. Couldn't have asked for it to go more smoothly. Highly recommend this place!
