About Neil & Verda Hutcheson

Living in Atlanta affords us the opportunity to visit our villa often for both the enjoyment as well as the necessity of freshening and maintain the villa so renters will always have a wonderful experience. Costa Rica has so much to offer and the Flying H Villa is an outstanding place to relax and enjoy the sounds and views of the ocean after a day of adventure or lounging by the pool.

We take pride in the villa décor and amenities and the reviews support our dedication.

Neil & Verda Hutcheson purchased this villa in 2013

Why Neil & Verda Hutcheson chose Costa Rica

The resort offers everything you need to have a great vacation, and is close to the village of Playa Coco so you can stock up on whatever is needed and have the convenience of restaurants, banks, shopping and night spots. We have met some of the greatest families and truly enjoy helping them with memories they will cherish.

What makes this villa unique

We also own another villa at Bahia Pez Vela, #87837 and we have enjoyed the property and staff immensely. This Beach Front Villa gives us another wonderful opportunity to share Costa Rica in a way that brings great pleasure to our guests,


Exceptional! 5/5 -

Flying H Villa - Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

This villa and the surrounding property are stunning - exactly as shown on the website, and it has all the amenities to make you feel at home. Verda and Neil are amazing hosts, and provided lots of helpful information before and during our stay.

We stayed for one week and managed quite well without renting a vehicle, although after assimilating to the area, a vehicle may have been nice for a couple days. However Jackie and Cesar in the office, were great to book excursions for us that picked us up right at the villa. We booked personal transit from the airport to the villa in advance, and made arrangements with them to stop at a grocery store on the way, ready with a list to get groceries for the week - Auto Mercado is a fairly new grocery store and had everything we needed.

Villa 1 is ideally located oceanfront and right next to the infinity pool that overlooks the bay, and the Picante restaurant. Meals were very good at the Picante, and we also enjoyed live entertainment and dancing there on Wednesday evening. We walked to Father Rooster Restaurant (about twenty minutes), which was very good as well. Taxi rides to the small town of Playa Coco are $10 each way for shopping or restaurants.

We were awakened every morning by the sound of howler monkeys, and did see them in the trees next door on occasion. We were also fortunate to see whales spouting and jumping in the bay right in front of the villa. The magpie Jays right at the villa are very friendly, but will be your guests for the week if you feed them. Hermit crabs can be seen with a flashlight on the beach, by the rocks after dark. Lots of entertaining wildlife!

Wouldn't hesitate to return!

We had a unforgettable week at this stunning Villa. It had all the amenities of a five star property in the States. Once inside the gatehouse at this beautiful private community, we enjoyed the lush tropical feel as we wound our way down to this beachfront villa.

This home is beautifully decorated and felt comfortable immediately. The bathrooms and kitchen are luxurious by even the most discriminating of individuals. As a gourmet chef my wife was in heaven since every necessary utensil was available for her. The personalized welcome bag and gracious conversations with the owners made our stay even more enjoyable.

Although we enjoyed a few trips to nearby Coco Beach to test the local fare, we enjoyed the Picante Restaurant right across the quiet street as much as any restaurant in town.

The beach is very quiet and although every beach in Costa Rica is public, this felt like it was our own private beach. We even saw a family of monkeys in the trees just a few steps from our beachfront deck.

Although we love trying new vacation spots often, this home is one we will visit again.

Beautiful villa in a peaceful stunning cove

  • 5 of 5

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

amazing home with fantastic owners -- magical vaca

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this place! From the moment we walked in, we knew it was perfect. They had everything in the home that we could ever need. We went to the grocery store three times (the newest one is great) and the kitchen was well stocked with everything for cooking. We enjoyed both of the beautiful patios (one off the living room/dining room, and one off the master bedroom). Each morning we would sit out and read and drink coffee looking at the ocean -- can't beat that.

Verda was amazing to work with. She answered every question quickly and was so helpful with information on restaurants, grocery stores, adventures, rental cars, etc. I didn't even have to ask -- she read my mind. We didn't eat out much, we preferred to hang outside during the day and stay in and cook in the evening -- we brought our three kids (9, 14, 16) and they had a blast! The pool was 15 steps away and we were on the beach also. The kids and my husband went kayaking and snorkeling and did it right from the beach. They also went ziplining and has a blast! Verda and Neil know the area very well and they maintain their property to the highest level. I would definitely go back. If all VRBOs were like this, I would never stay in a hotel again!

I have rented through VRBO many times, and depend heavily on the reviews to help set my expectations. The Flying H Villa EXCEEDED the already high expectations I had from reading the other reviews. This villa and the location are both phenomenal. Beautifully and tastefully decorated with lots of color, glass and light. Very clean. Lots of space. And it was so fun to arrive and have it decorated for Christmas--including personalized stockings for all of us. Less than a minute to walk to the beach, pool, or restaurant. Very private and secluded feeling on the outdoor patio. Our crew of 5 included my husband, two sons (9 & 12) and mother. The 3 upstairs bedroom easily accommodated all of us. We gave Mom the master bedroom because we knew we would be out and about most of the time, and she loved sitting out on the balcony listening to the waves and watching the kids play in the ocean. The other bedroom with a king size bed was equally large and also looked out on the ocean.

We ate at Picante restaurant once for lunch and twice for dinner during our week long stay. Not many other people there, but the food was very good. Juan was a delight, and we went out kayaking with him one morning.

You are an exciting 10 minute drive from town, but we expected that and was not a problem for us as we had a car. We had something planned for just about every day, and very much appreciated the information that Verda provided. The office on site was very helpful in setting up a few things that we had not arranged ahead of time. Our favorite activities of the week:

*Hacienda Guachipelin adventure -- something for everyone! We stayed here our first night in Costa Rica.

*Diamante EcoAdventure Park--they have a rescue animal sanctuary on site which we sought out as our 9 yr old desperately wanted to see a sloth. Lucy the sloth was perfect, and we lucked into showing up at feeding time and they let our son feed her. Highlight of his trip.

*Diving with Deep Blue Divers. Our 12 yr old is not certified, so he did a Discovery dive with them which involve a brief pool session the afternoon before and then my husband and I (who are certified) were able to do a 2 tank morning dive with him and the instructor.

*Cortez Waterfall-- swimming below a beautiful waterfall was a dream come true for Grammy

Too much stuff to mention. Just snorkeling off the beach was delightful. A magical trip, and this villa and Verda's guidance were certainly a very important part of that.

Awesome vacation in amazing condo

  • 5 of 5

If you are lucky enough to stay in this villa you will surely have a vacation you will never forget. The interior is beautiful, is stocked with everything you need and the location and view is to die for! Many thanks to the owners for their responsiveness and many helpful suggestions on activities in the area. You will not be bored. We especially liked the tubing, horse back riding and zip lining. Don't miss the feeding of all the animals. We hope we can return to this villa one day!
