-Can’t ever vacation anywhere else because THIS WAS THE BEST!!!
-Don’t have to leave the house- Jocelyn, Hector, Neptallie, Jasmine + Ana are AMAZING!
-Learned how to make tortillas- tried + failed
All of our needs were met beyond our expectations! Shopping, laundry, you guys are the best!
Thank you! CF, USA, Feb 2020
I had so much fun here! I want to come back soon. Jocelyn was so much fun. I was always in the kitchen helping cook. She was teaching me and my dad to make tortillas. Also Neptale and Hector were so much fun. Neptale at first we could not pronounce his name so we called him nutella, a american chocolate spread. Bye bye!
We are very pleased with our one week experience at Casa Vista Verde. From the pre-trip preparations dealing with Ana and the owner Asa, to our final day, everything was well organized and well prepared. Ana, our Concierge Hostess, was very helpful in our pre-trip planning, giving us great advice as to how to spend our days, recommending diving and snorkeling sites, tourist attractions and arranging for our driver. She supplied us with groceries, provisions and reservations when needed. She was remarkably efficient and flexible. Our driver, Armando, was always available to transport us to a number of venues and was prompt, flexible and on time.
The house staff was outstanding. Special kudos to Yoselin who prepared our meals, ensured that we were well taken care of and gave us a wonderful introduction to the best local cuisine we have had yet experienced on the Islands. After experiencing her cooking, we quickly decided to eat most of our meals in the Casa. Her husband, Hector, assisted her and took care of the outside maintenance, boats, beach etc. with the assistance of Neptali. Edelise did a great job with the daily housekeeping, laundry, etc.
From the moment we arrived, greeted by sumptuous platters of cheese, fruits meats and cold beverages to the time we departed, we were treated with the utmost respect and hospitality.
The house was perfect for our group of 10. There was ample sleeping space, bathrooms, spacious grounds, an Infinity pool, a large patio, a spacious covered dining area where we spent most of our outdoor time, and a nicely maintained yard and beach. The house was nicely decorated for Christmas and games, books and entertainment centers kept us occupied in our little spare time! Some special touches were: potable drinking water and ice machines; individual in room on-demand air conditioning (use judiciously however as electricity is expensive); the availability of kayaks for exploring the area mangroves; and the power boats for hire.
We would not hesitate to recommend Casa Vista Verde without reservation. If we were to return to Roatan, it would be our first choice to stay again. SF, USA, Dec 2019
We enjoyed a PERFECT Christmas at Casa Vista Verde. The staff was welcoming and accommodating- from arranging excursions, transporting, to making sure could take advantage of all the villa had to offer, to providing delicious gourmet meals. Top notch!!! TS, USA, Dec 2019
We enjoyed the entire property of Casa Vista Verde.If we traveled to Roatan again, we would of course stay at Casa Vista Verde, the staff and home are amazing. I have already recommended to 2 couples looking for for family vacations. FF, USA, Nov 2019
The aspect of Casa Vista Verde I enjoyed the most was that everything was all in one place. We enjoyed the private beach, the golf cart to run around in. We enjoyed everyone’s willingness to help make everything memorable. There was nothing that would have made our stay better, it was perfect! If we ever return to Roatan, we would definitely stay at Casa Vista Verde again. It has everything we need all in one place, no reason to go anywhere else. We all enjoyed ourselves, thank you for making this trip amazing, we will be back!! What an amazing trip. Thank you to all who cared for us while we were there. The staff, property, and weather was perfect. We will return. Thanks. BF, USA, Oct 2019
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
We had the pleasure of staying at Casa Vista Verde for my husband’s birthday. The staff was amazing, the accommodations were beautiful, and the food was amazing. We have made such great memories and we appreciate Ana’s stellar organization and communication during our stay. Best wishes! LG, USA May 19 ________________________________________ We had a fantastic stay at Vista Verde! The staff was amazing and so attentive to all our needs. Joslin is an amazing cook!

The sunsets are my favorite! Thank you Casa Vista Verde. BG, USA, May 19 ________________________________________ Beautiful location and amazing staff! We had a nice, long couples weekend to celebrate a milestone birthday, and the accommodations, staff, and food were all amazing. We plan to return with our whole family. VL, USA May 19 ________________________________________ We do not want to go home! Our 3 families of 4 adults and 8 kids had a fabulous time, great balance of relaxing and activity. We came all exhausted from busy life of work, school, and sports teams and are leaving refreshed and very tan. The staff was fantastic- We loved Jocelyn’s meals, Adelex’s smile and over- the- top Sunei and Hector and Nepali being always present for snorkeling, jetski, and driving us places. Zip lining was really cool and the guys there made it feel safe and very fun. Freddie the driver was informative and in perfectly with our crazy clan. Anna always was available to get what we needed and nothing was difficult. We highly recommend snorkeling off the boat- especially near the shipwreck. The movie library was great for nighttime when everyone was tired and the speakers were great for streaming music. Back to Freddie- he was great with last minute requests even frozen yogurt which we insisted several times. The food was a real treat- us 3 moms were so happy to have a break from reality with high quality great tasting food which the kids loved and left every meal fully satisfied. We had breakfast and lunch (10 and 2-3) and then snacked and ate leftovers and night. We enjoyed the dock at the neighboring beach club and had fun jumping off into the water at sunset. We highly recommend the phone app Skyview Lite- starwatching became a nightly activity. Thank you Casa Vista Verde! PS I fell in love with the blond kitten- we named him Chester- he loves attention!(and chicken) Please post pictures on the Casa Verde FB page! TG, USA, Apr 19
Truly amazing vacation with wonderful staff and fabulous meals! Loved the beaches and snorkeling! Far above our expectations with the security and beautiful surroundings and the friendliness of Ana, Hector, Joselyn, Neptali, and Adelas. Super suggestions for day excursions! Look forward to returning! Many, many thanks! VG, USA, Mar 19
What she said and more… We loved this trip and this place. We will be back! Thanks! CG, USA, Mar 19
What a great property and staff! We will be back! I could not give this property a higher recommendation. The staff was great and attentive, the house was large and luxurious and everything was exactly as advertised. We loved the cabana, private beach and boat dock. It was a wonderful way to spend our first week in Roatan. We will definitely be back to stay again! TC, USA, Mar 19
This place is beautiful! The people are beautiful! The island is beautiful! What a truly lovely vacation- We didn’t want to leave! We had an absolute BLAST! And everyone here was AMAZING! Can’t wait to come back! Thank you all for everything! CG, USA, Feb 19
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely Casa with us. We feel blessed to have been able to experience this peaceful, beautiful, and relaxing location. My husband and I are fortunate enough to travel abroad often and this vacation is most certainly in our top 3 destinations. We look forward to a return visit in the next few years. We also have friends we will recommend your Casa to. Thank you, CG, USA, Feb 19
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Hands down- one of the best vacations ever! Casa Vista Verde is gorgeous! The staff(Ana, Joselyn, Hector, Sayda, Hector, and Freddy) are absolutely amazing! Every single excursion we went on was amazing. Everything is wonderful! Thank you! DG, USA, Feb 19
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, PG, USA, Feb 19

Hector and Naptoli- The beach, the boat rides, the rides into town- Thank you!! Sayda- The quiet one!- looking after our mess and spoiled for sure- We love Casa Vista Verde so much- It’s Our Happy Place. PG, USA, Feb 19
Perfect vacation! Our family of 10 stayed at Casa Vista Verde for a week. We had an incredible time snorkeling, swimming, holding sloths and monkeys, getting massages, and doing yoga. During one of our snorkeling trips Hector took us to an area where there were lots of starfish. We saw so many beautiful fish and the reef was amazing. The staff is what makes the villa so special. Ana comes every day to make sure you do any excursion you’d like to do. Jocelyn and Hector are incredible cooks and they made dinner for us 6 nights. I know everyone in our family gained weight while we were there. The food was delicious! The first night there we had grilled lobster tails and steak! Be sure to have Jocelyn make the grouper….our family favorite! It was wonderful not having to do any dishes or make a meal! Adele made sure we didn’t have to do any laundry. Every day she made sure we had clean beach towels to use and our rooms were clean. I worked for 25 years as a teacher and used my unused sick leave to take my kids, their spouses, and my grandkids to Roatan. It was worth every penny! We have so many wonderful memories of our time there and how incredible we were treated! Thank you Asa! PT, USA, Dec 18
Can’t say enough wonderful things about our stay here. The FOOD and Jocelyn were beyond expectations. We loved, loved, loved the catamaran snorkeling trip with Mad Max. Ziplining at Pirates of the Caribbean was worth every penny! Definitely do the Extreme Extreme, diving from Turquoise Bay, and just plenty of time enjoying the view, pool, and beach. The staff just made everything happen and easy. Great family bonding time. Huge thank you from the P___ Group. PG, USA, Dec 18
The cold days are leaving, and summer is just around the corner!

Create a souvenir of your Roatan visit!

Available days can be checked here. Contact us to reserve your dates today!
We came to Roatan with our 3 children, their spouses, and 2 grandchildren to celebrate my retirement. Everything was perfect except the week ended so quickly!! We loved snorkeling and spent a lot of time with Hector on the boat. The starfish were incredible! We also snorkeled at Big French Key which was great. We all loved holding the sloths and monkeys at French Key! But we also loved being here and soaking up the sun at the pool or the beach. However, the reason our trip was so incredible, was because of Joselyn, Hector, Ana, Adele, and Neptali. They are what make Casa Vista Verde so special! We loved spending our vacation here and hope to return soon! BF, USA, Nov 18
Jocelyn, we have had the most amazing time this week because of both of you and Hailey! The meals you fixed were amazing! We have never eaten so well! It was so nice getting to know you and your family. Thank for your everything you’ve done for us this week! BF, USA, Nov 18
Learned about Vista Verde from Google. Very positive first impressions on arrival, lived up to our expectations very well! Amazing staff – 10! Amazing value – 10! We enjoyed the snorkeling, meals and activities the most. Can’t think of anything to make it better! Will absolutely recommend to our friends and associates! If we come back to Roatan, we’d absolutely stay at Casa Vista Verde again! We loved it! KF, USA, Nov 18
Our stay was perfect!! We loved the house & the grounds. The swimming pool and hot tub were used everyday. We especially loved the meals. Jocelyn and Hector prepared amazing meals for us. Loved the grouper meal the best! We also loved how clean Adele kept the house and how she always had clean towels. She kept all our rooms nice and clean.
Ana, of course, did an outstanding job recommending activities & keeping things running smoothly. We loved the snorkeling & sloths the best. We weren’t as impressed by the mangrove tour. There was too much trash in the water – can see why we shouldn’t use plastics or Styrofoam. Also the amount of fish and variety was better in the ocean. But that was a very small concern of ours. We might have gone on a bad day. We loved it here and hope to come back again!!! BF, USA, Nov 2018
Asa, we had a great time in Roatan. Everyone loved it! I think my favorite part was going out with Hector on the boat and snorkeling. He took us to different places each time and the reef was amazing! Others loved sitting around the pool and just relaxing. We had planned to go to the west side but decided to stay around the house instead. We didn’t want to do the car ride because it was too long and why leave paradise?
The folks that work there are incredible. Hector and Jocelyn cooked for us every night but one. The food was better than a restaurant. And we all appreciated not having to cook or clean up. Adele made sure we always had clean towels. It was so nice going up to our room at night and having our room clean and the bed made.
Ana, of course, really helped us a lot plan our excursions. She’d look at the weather forecast and recommend what days to go snorkeling based on the weather conditions. We especially liked how she’d go to the store for us each day if we needed more food or drinks. That was extremely helpful for us!
We have gone to Tulum, Mexico and Ambergris Cay, Belize on vacation . We all said we like Roatan the best. The house, the location, and the outstanding staff made it our best trip ever! Thank you so much! Your house was perfect for us!!!! KF, USA, Nov 18
Ana, we loved our time in Roatan! We had the best family vacation!!! Thank you for making our trip so memorable. Unfortunately it is very cold here and snowing! Hard to believe a few days ago we were swimming and now we are bundled up in our winter coats. KB, USA, Nov 2018

Thanks Ana! Our trip was VERY special and a lot of that is due to you and the whole Casa Vista Verde staff. You were all very attentive and helpful in so many ways! I now fully understand the phrase – “the trip of a life time” because that is exactly how I express last week’s visit to Roatan. All our luggage arrived with us and we were home and in our own beds by midnight! Thanks again (to everyone) for everything. It is blowing snow here in Virginia (where we are) and in the 30’s. Back to wearing coats!!!!
Asa: Your beautiful home was absolutely perfect for our 50 th wedding anniversary celebration with our children and their families! Your excellent staff could not have been more accommodating and hospitable!!! I have enclosed a couple of pictures. Take care and blessings, MR, USA, Nov 2018
Jocelyn – THANK YOU for all your delicious secret recipes, and your wonderful company and conversations. You are so lovely, so nice, hardworking, and studious! I hope that you ACE all four tests! Talking with you has been one of my favorite parts here. Love to you, Haley, and Hector! Thank you Gracias! Miss Adeli, everything always looks so beautiful – thank you for cleaning up after us, I hope we weren’t too messy! Love, MF, USA, Nov 2018
Our 50th wedding anniversary with our two children, their spouses, and our 2 young grandchildren was absolutely perfect! Ana, Jocelyn, Hector, Neptali, and Adeli were fabulous. Jocelyn was fantastic, with her culinary expertise at every meal! Dazzling. She worked so very hard. Thank you, Asa Davis, for sharing your gorgeous home with us. Your attention for detail is evident in every aspect! We would love to return!!! RC, USA, Nov 18
What can I say? This place rocks. Felt like I was home with the attention to details in Casa, food, service, hospitality. All great! This is the place to be on the isla. Thanks to Ana and her caring staff – the best! Now on to home and the gym to work off the amazing food. A little place in paradise, for sure. RP, USA, Oct 2018
Dear Asa, this has been a much anticipated trip to celebrate David’s 75th and his chance to celebrate on Roatan was a diver’s dream come true. The gracious, welcoming hospitality of Vista Verde, its serene and exquisitely beautiful grounds and location and its ability for us to feel very much at home here will remain equally as strong in our memories as will all the fun we experienced on Roatan. A huge thank you for all the TLC of your phenomenal staff. We were treated like royalty and we truly appreciated everything. We hope to return one day! D&SB, USA, Oct 2018
Birthday Party Extraordinairo! Susan &I are guests at Vista Verde courtesy of the B____ family celebrating our dear friend’s “75” years on planet-Roatan. An amazing celebration of friendship, love, companionship, and good times! It is an honor to be here with so many dear, dear friends. We are all so wonderfully thankful. S<, USA, Oct 2018
