vacation rental description

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.

traveler reviews for this playa ocotal house rental

Best location in Bahia Rez Vela!

Review submitted: July 11, 2014   Date of arrival: June 21, 2014

Villa Las Olas is the best villa in a wonderful resort. Our week stay was too short. Like others mentioned: the villa is very well-stocked, beds and other furniture very comfortable, great base for outings, the private pool is awesome and the resort pool is 3 villas down.

This particular villa has the best location in the resort, trees on one side and landscaped privacy between it and the villa next door. While we were there the resort seemed pretty empty, very few people at the restaurant, resort pool and beach. That was wonderful for us! The beach is so close that we didn't bother to bring towels with us, just walked back up to the villa and plopped down on very comfy patio furniture. Snorkeling was so easy time of day; just put on your mask and stick your face in the water anywhere. There were always fish to see. Around the rocks at either end of the beach was most populated but plenty to see in the middle too. There was only one afternoon that the water was a bit murky.

I had read that it was rainy season at the time of our visit but we only got rain once while zipling about an hour away from the resort. Zipling was great anyway! As was an ATV tour and a wave-runner tour. The wave-runner tour was particularly good because the bay was wide-open with very few boats. So I wasn't worried about how wild my 20yo was driving; he only took one spill.

The on-site restaurant is good. Get a smoothie by the pool, but if you order food walk upstair and eat at the tables. These birds that look like giant blue-jays are very agressive. While my 11yo was holding a plate of fries one landed on her head, scared the daylights out of her!

We also like Father Roosters (very close) and we really liked Ginger (25 minutes away). Make a reservation for Ginger; it's small and gets busy. They have a great selection of tapas.

In the evenings we were visited by raccoons. They are taller and sleeker that the ones I've seen in the States. After petting one that someone had as a pet while we were on the ATV ride I was tempted to feed them. I bet a lot of people do cuz they seemed very comfortable literally lying around within 5' of us in the yard. Instead we took lots of pictures of them.

I would go back to this resort and this villa and I will recommend both to my friends.

The Perfect Vacation

Review submitted: June 12, 2014   Date of arrival: May 24, 2014

I don't have much to add to what has already been said in other reviews. For our group (5 adults & 1 child) the villa, pool and ocean provided the perfect vacation. My review can be summed up by my son's statement upon arrival. "Dad, we have found paradise!"

Absolutely amazing!

Review submitted: May 29, 2014   Date of arrival: May 16, 2014

Our stay was amazing! The photos give a perfect reflection of the home except for the proximity of the beach - it's even closer than it looks! The owner was very helpful with the booking process and provided great notes on the area. I highly recommend this villa for your stay!
