“Piece of Paradise”
Reviewed 11 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This condo was wonderful! It started with really helpful communication with the owner, Alvin, who sent us great tips on everything from excursions to grocery stores. The condo was very clean along with well stocked with pots/pans for cooking and beach chairs/snorkeling gear/towels for playing on the beach. The location is amazing, beautiful beach that you basically have to yourself and great snorkeling right off the beach. It's convenient to the nearest town for groceries and restaurants. The onsite staff, Cesar and Jackie are very helpful and the onsite restaurant is a great option to eat by the beautiful pool. We will definitely be back here!

“Cookies review of pezvela”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

I recently visited Costa Rica and stayed a beautiful villa called Pez Vela. This villa had every amenity you could think of. It was very spacious and designer decorated. With this lovely villa you had beautiful patio's that had both fabulous views of the ocean and mountains. As soon as you got over the beauty of the villa itself.. you walked out your door to be greeted by lush vegetation and a few steps to your own private beach! The villa sleeps 10 and has 3 full baths..we cannot wait to return to Pez Vela was one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed and would highly recommend it. Happy travels

“Paradise!”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed in Villa Calla (#11) in beautiful Bahia Pez Vela and I have only good things to say about it. It's a great resort, tucked away from the hustle and bustle, yet close to town. The beach is nice and quiet and the view is breathtaking. Caesar and Jacky at the office were kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable. Our Villa was right on the beach, near the restaurant and its decor and amenities were excellent. We enjoyed the premium linen and well-equipped kitchen. We were very impressed with the way the owner, Mr. Alvin Johns, treated us. His attention to detail, his thoughtfulness and kindness made our stay unforgettable. We are so happy we found this gem and its owners. Thank you, dear Al, for everything. I am sorry for the long delay in writing this review. We look forward to our stay in your beautiful Villa again in November!

Hi Faye,

Thank you for the review. It was a pleasure assisting you on your first visit to Costa Rica. We're especially pleased to have you return in November.

When you return we'll have a new Homecrest patio set for you to comfortably enjoy the view and sounds of the Pacific.

Enjoy your summer

We feel like we are in paradise. The Condo has amazing views of the ocean with beautiful sunsets. Footsteps from the black sand beach and snorkeling. It's clean, private, and safe. The water is calm. The place is beautifully decorated and spacious with all the modern conveniences. The owner was extremely helpful as he suggested many great places to visit in the area and is very friendly to talk to on the phone. The restaurant offered the best meal we had. All five of us enjoyed our meal immensely. Hope to comeback someday and stay longer!

“BEAUTIFUL, PRIVATE, PARADISE”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had two families on this vacation, four adults and four girls (ages 10, 10, 13 and 15). I have only good things to say! The villa was very well stocked and had everything we needed and more. The patio was private with breathtaking views of the beach and ocean. Both the beach and pool were just a few steps away. And I have never seen the night sky look so beautiful. Management was very friendly and helped us book several excursions. I am already planning a return trip and I want to stay at THIS villa!
