Spent 8 days at Casa Vista Verde with a group of 10 (two families) and had a great time. Weather was fantastic, the property is very private, views are amazing and there's always plenty to do whether you like to stay active or simply just relax. There's no road noise or any other distractions to interrupt a very peaceful setting. The grounds are very well maintained, the house is very clean and the staff is very organized. The food prep service is very convenient and we enjoyed Joslyn's cooking. They are very accommodating to adjust type of food and when to serve. We took advantage of the dinner option also and it was very convenient. Ana does a nice job arranging any activities or excursions you want to go on. We used the boat a couple times to fish and snorkel. Hector and Neptali were great about shuttling us around on the water. The staff does a nice job of taking care of their daily duties without you even knowing it (cleaning house, pool maintenance, beach maintenance, etc.). Kayaks are provided, as is snorkeling equipment. The beach sets up well for volleyball games too. There are places with better sand (including beach next door that you have access to), but otherwise we wouldn't change a thing. The sand flies are definitely present, mostly during late afternoon and evening hours, but the staff provides insect repellent and it did work. Great spot for 8-10 people if you want a private place with plenty of spaces to relax in peace!
Asa's property is like having your own private resort with the wave runner, boats, kayaks, golf cart, private beach, staff, chef, access to a driver and more. And if you need something else the staff are super attentive so they will get it for you ASAP. The views from the home are exceptional and the nice ocean breeze helps to keep the grounds and house very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the house and would definitely return. The house is located away from all the cruise ship passengers which we appreciated and because Josslyn was such a great cook we chose to eat most meals at the house. Ana helped us plan an excursion to Pigeon Cay for great snorkeling and we also did some scuba diving which was awesome. The islands proximity to the reef is a huge bonus. Sayda, Neptali and Hector were also great hosts and were very friendly and professional. We were traveling with our four daughters between 9 - 14 years old and they really enjoyed the vacation and exploring the spacious grounds via golf cart. Asa definitely takes pride in his house and runs this like a business so everything is handled very professionally unlike others who rent their homes as a hobby. We also thought the total package was a good value compared to other options in the Caribbean. The house is in a relatively remote location so if you want a lot of dining or nightlife options every day it may not be the best choice, but for us we loved the privacy and the food that was prepared for breakfast, lunch and dinner was much better (and less expensive) than eating at a restaurant. The people on Roatan are very friendly and safety was never an issue for us. We would highly recommend Roatan and if you go - Asa's house is the place to stay.
This was an amazing property. The owners of this property had a vision and it is clear when you arrive and see the home and the view. The approach with the staff, water sports etc. are extremely accomodating. We have never had an experience of seclusion but with suh close, personal access to the reef. Very quiet. We went to the West End, about a hour drive, and my wifes comment was, "The West End better be perfect, because we are leaving perfect".
What an amazing choice for our first stay in Honduras! The property was far more than we could have hoped for and the staff were so helpful. With a mix of adults and young kids, there was always something to do and fun to be had on the property. A must for anyone looking to go to Roatan.
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Vista Verde. The property is large and cozy at the same time, and the views are spectacular! It's laid out with lots of privacy and many alcoves so you can share the house with a group, but still find a comfortable area with beautiful views all to yourself. You can lounge on the beach, on the dock watching pelicans, in hammocks by the Casita after an indoor or outdoor shower, on the huge pool deck by the infinity edge pool, on private shaded terraces, or in the air conditioned media room. We enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling on the Vista's aqua beach, and also heard about the island's many excellent scuba diving spots which we'd like to try on our next visit. We were utterly pampered by the staff. Ana took care of any arrangements we requested and she was very knowledgeable about the island's offerings, history, etc. Joselyn prepared beautiful & delicious meals, and Hector and Neptali helped us with the coolers, kayaks, etc. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
After THREE vacations at Casa Vista Verde from 2012-2017 (and another planned in 2019), we feel uniquely qualified to provide an experienced review of this property. This year we brought our family of 5 plus two friends (parents plus kids aging from 17-21). As in the past, the staff was beyond spectacular; there is really nothing they won’t do to make sure your stay is perfect. We were the first guests Jocelyn cooked for 2 years ago; in those 2 years she has become fluent in English and an excellent cook. Her husband, Hector, and sidekick, Neptali, are on site to help with the boat(s), cut open a coconut (straw included) or address any need or issue with the property that may arise. Casa Vista Verde is the ideal family vacation spot with something for everyone. Scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, skiing, beach volleyball, lionfish hunting, swimming, sunbathing, yoga, hot-tubing, jet skiing, jogging, hiking, horseback riding, board games, movie watching, sunset viewing (to name a few) are ALL available from the Villa and most are included in the rate. For anyone who needs to touch base with work the wifi is excellent. Ana, the property manager, is as close to a personal concierge as one could find. Among her credentials, she is a dive master and professional underwater photographer. This year we had 5 divers, 1 free diver and 1 snorkeler and she worked with Barefoot Divers to accommodate everyone’s needs on the same dives and often dove with us. We are experienced divers and I can attest to the fact that Roatan offers some of the best diving we’ve done. We’ve vacationed all over the Caribbean and this is the ONLY place we have found that comes with someone on site to prepare all the meals. Your visit starts with some sample menus from which to choose but Jocelyn quickly learns your tastes and preferences; the extra fee for dinner preparation is nominal compared to the cost of going a restaurant; especially with a large group. Transportation is provided at no charge to and from the airport; Hector or Neptali are available to take you wherever you need to go during your stay at a nominal fee (or they can arrange for a rental car). What keeps us coming back is it is the only vacation we’ve found where every single one of our needs are met and we can relax and enjoy our family doing the kind of activities we love in one of the most relaxing and breathtaking settings we’ve found. Your search is over! Book your stay today!
I stayed at the resort with a few friends and we couldn't of had a better time. Front he stunning location right on the water to the beautiful house it could not be beat. They service of the staff was absolutely incredible always making sure you had every amenity possible to make they stay that much more enjoyable! They took us out to the reef to go snorkeling which was a another great experience. The water was a beautiful blue with a ton of sea life. Over all the stay at casa vista verde was amazing and I would highly suggest it for anyone trying to take a relaxing trip to a beautiful resort!
