Casa Pez Vela, Playa Carrillo, Costa Rica

Gorgeous home with private pool & hot tub, patio area, and stunning views

Escape to the Guanacaste jungle during a visit to this fully outfitted house, complete with a private pool, hot tub, and patio area. Views of the area's mountains, valley, and coast greet you from Casa Vela's lovely property.

You'll feel far from the rest of the world at this secluded jungle paradise, but you're less than three miles from the sands of Playa Carrillo, and the town's groceries and dining are just a little farther. Catch waves on your surf board at the beach, or simply relax at home, where you've got everything you need.

The private pool, garden, and hot tub here give you your own slice of vacation paradise, and the surrounding patio area provides plenty of space to cook out on the gas grill. Imagine retreating under the covered area during a summer shower and smelling the rain from the comfort of the patio's seating.

Prepare your meals in the home's full kitchen, where you'll find a dishwasher for convenient clean-up. A private washer and dryer make laundry easy. The property is enclosed within a gated entrance for added security.

Central air conditioning keeps everybody cool here. Two cable TVs, a DVD player, and free WiFi provide entertainment during your stay. Please note that 4x4 driving may be required here from June through November.

Fall in love with this beautiful jungle paradise - book your stay here today!

The view at Casa Vela is stunning. It has a great outdoor living space equipped with a large grill and a lovely lighted pool. The inside is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen has everything any guest would need to create delicious meals. Finally, you can't beat the price.

The most difficult part of staying at Casa Vela is that we had to leave. The photos don't do justice to the stunning view of ocean, mountains, scenery and home. The trip instructions were perfect. The home manual was really helpful. We had dinner the first night at Hotel Peace up the road. The proprietor Laura gave us great information of the area along with a fine dinner. We returned later in the week as well. The home is open and comfortable, with views from every angle. We never turned on the tv... cooked many meals from well stocked kitchen and grill area. The dishes provided are beautiful. We appreciated the provided beach towels, laundry facilities, and Miguel answering any of our questions. Gorgeous mornings watching the sun rise, and soft late afternoons in the pool listening to the howler monkeys call back and forth, watch all the types of birds. There were no mosquitoes! A grasshopper the size of a hot dog bun was fished out of the hot tub one morning- it seemed to recover ok. Christopher and Brenda at the visitor center in Samara gave us great tips on meat markets, snorkeling locations, and general info. Playa Carillo is wonderful. We had lunch often in Carillo at Soda La Plaza just a few minutes from the beach, and miss Oliver and Diana's tasty lunches. The road is shared with bikes, pedestrians, cows, horses, a stray chicken; one's travels around this area are always interesting and most of all, relaxed. This is a peaceful, friendly, welcoming home and surrounding location. We are already planning to return to both.

Beautiful views, amazing pool and hot tub. You can hear howler monkeys throughout the day which is such a treat.

Our second time at Casa Vela! We don't want to say too much about it, as we want to save it for ourselves! Great management company, clean, beautiful views.

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Casa Vela! It’s perfect for families with the amazing pool and hot tub, close vicinity to Playa Carrillo - a lovely, laid-back beach, and all the amenities included! We cooked several of our meals in the kitchen and it has everything you could need! We even used the outdoor BBQ for one meal and loved that we could enjoy a drink on the back patio while our food cooked. We were also able to do a few loads of laundry, which was much appreciated at the end of our trip. The living room was also very comfortable - and we enjoyed a family movie the one night while it rained. Playa Sámara is just a quick 15 minutes away. There were lots of great restaurants and grocery stores. All in all, this home exceeded our expectations and we have already been talking about coming back!! Thanks for a great stay!

My family of 4 stayed 4 nights in the Casa Vela. Mornings filled with beautiful sunsets, geckos talking, howler monkeys calling, hummingbirds eating, and peaceful surroundings. The beautiful pool and hot tub were a perfect treat for family swims and relaxation. The kitchen fully stocked with everything you could possibly need from wine glasses, coffee machine, cookware and dishes. The dirt road was perfect for family walks and monkey watching. The comfort level we felt in this beautiful home allowed my kids to feel right at home and wanting more. In fact we only made it to be beach 1 day because the kiddos wanted to stay at the house. We will for sure be back.

“Our stay at Casa Vela was extraordinary. We only stayed two nights but, upon arrival, quickly wished we had spent the majority of our time at this beautiful house. The views were spectacular, the house was spotless and gorgeous. The pool and hot tub were wonderful. Our two daughters, ages 12 & 14, loved swimming in the pool and really loved their bedroom (and that they had Wi-Fi). If you are looking for a relaxing and picturesque place to stay, this is it! We will definitely be back!”
