A great way to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Wonderful views, sunsets, staff! Great friends and lots of laughs- we will be back in June 2020, with Seattle-based maniacs. More fun to be had! EG, USA, Aug 19
Stunning location, staff, meals, diving – could NOT ask for more! Such a relaxing time in a little piece of heaven. This was our first central American trip for a group I put together – (10 total, 5 couples and not everyone knew each other). Perfect private en-suite bedrooms for every couple. Nicely decorated, beautiful appointments in each bathroom. Windows opened and allowed the cool breeze to blow in – [We needed the AC at night ONLY for sleeping in August; we were warned that electricity was very expensive on Roatan BUT the entire week’s usage of electricity only added about $35 per person total, like a trip to Starbucks for 5 friends.
The pool and outside living is stunning. Great infinity pool that we hung out in a lot. A fantastic elevated view of the Ocean from this very pool and the entire property. Sunsets were amazing too. The sun did set WAY earlier than we were used to, around 6 PM, so we could see the sunset then have dinner.
Staff: These are our new family members! They really care that we had the time of our lives! Ana is your host and she knows the island, the property, the activities – she is an accomplished diver and underwater photographer herself!
Food – We ate like kings & queens. Joselyn is a master chef, she had several helpers, and they seemed to cook/prepare ALL day. We ate breakfast and lunch at the Villa every day. We had dinners on the covered patio 3 nights and we ate out 2 nights. Note that we actually had a professional chef in our Group and she agreed that having Joselyn plan & prepare was the perfect relaxing choice, even for her! Food was always available without us EVER having to think about it – that’s what a vacation is all about. We had meals for every taste, including several of our group who did nit eat fish and/or shellfish. But for those of us who do eat fish, such great local delicacies. Attempting to do this yourselves would be somewhat impossible and so very unnecessary.
Local fruits & juices. We had lots of local (on property) juices, both to drink “as is” and some as mixers in our adult beverages. [No driving so plenty of these.] Hydrate though as the sun is hot.
We made great use of the sound system, you can tell that the owner is an engineer – it worked perfectly to play music from any phone we chose [so many people have their own playlists] you also learn a LOT about someone from their chosen music – No Nickelback of Celine Dion please . Ha!
Activities: Diving, Snorkeling, Fly Fishing, Jet Skiing, Zip Lining, Golfing. Superb accommodations for all of these nearby. Note that the Villa’s own boat (with a Captain) got us out to snorkeling As Good As We paid for on the West End. The boat was ready for us every day, while we ate breakfast!
The Golf course (Black Pearl) was fantastic. Of course for only one round the seven of us who played rented their very nice clubs. The course is very hilly yet accessible fairways & greens. My golf GPS watch worked here just as it does across the US, so distances were easily calculated. The course does provide mandatory caddies, but these guys were great. We were able to order food during play that was brought out to us as “the turn” is NOT back at the clubhouse.
Jet Skis are rented right next door with guides [needed as you cannot see where the shallow reefs are without them] but that does NOT mean that you will be going slowly. You could also rent horses and they walked/almost swam around an island just off our jetty.
The Beach Cabana was beautifully put together. It is right on the water and well-appointed too.
Wonderful, better than described (under promise and over deliver, right?), relaxing and SO INEXPENSIVE, many of the Group doubted my math.
Visit Casa Vista Verde – you will be so very pleased. RE, USA, Aug 19
BEST Vacation!! Fabulous home, amazing staff, gorgeous views. Love to visit again. Great friends. RF, USA, Aug 19
I enjoyed the food and pool the most. If we ever return to Roatan, we would stay at Casa Vista Verde again. The staff was great and the food was amazing. Thank You! We had the best time. Beautiful location and amazing staff. Can’t wait to come again. Love from Chicago, EC, UA, Aug 19
Perfect in every way! I cannot say enough good things about Casa Vista Verde. The rooms were great, the pool was great, the beach was great. The staff was better than great! The food was amazing, We ate in for the majority of our stay and it was better than going to a nice restaurant. Every meal was different and amazing. I can’t say enough good things about Casa Vista Verde. Also so many great things to do right on property from kayaking, jet skiing, or just lounging around. CF, USA, Aug 19
Our family of 5 enjoyed our time at Vista Verde immensely. We especially enjoyed hanging in the hammocks in the afternoon breeze. The staff was superb! Joselyn’s cooking and her friendly demeanor charmed us all. The limon-ade with a hint of mint made delicious margaritas several days in a row! Ana made our arrival, leaving, and excursions go smoothly. We felt cared for and never lost, knowing Ana was a quick call or text away. Enjoyed the quiet and views the most. If we ever return to Roatan, we absolutely would stay at Casa Vista Verde again. It was a beautiful week, thank you. Thank you Asa for making this idyllic home available for families to rent. We made beautiful memories to last a lifetime! Until next time: BF, USA, Jul 19
The staff was very helpful in making our stay pleasant and enjoyable. I enjoyed the seclusion and atmosphere the most. If we ever return to Roatan, we would stay at Casa Vista Verde again! The staff is wonderful, we enjoyed everyone. Best vacation ever. Besides the beautiful setting, the staff is the real gems. We will miss you but certainly be back! MF, USA, Jun 2019
Hector, thank you for escorting us all over the island! We truly enjoyed the boat ride on our last day! You & your family are absolutely precious!! We loved our time here!! Love, Us
Joselyn, how can we ever thank you enough – your cooking is so so so so good! Extraordinary!! We will need to exercise for many months. You have such great cooking skills – you love your work and it shows! Asa is lucky to have you – Love, US
