Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for the wonderful vacation! We had such a fabulous time. The villa details are amazing...from the oversized stone bathrooms to the jaw dropping kitchen! Lucy and Gina were all smiles and we especially loved the fresh squeezed juice and fruit they provided in the morning. They did a wonderful job keeping the villa in great shape our entire stay. I look forward to getting back to amazing Villa de la Vida soon!

Perfect vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families stay for our spring break that included 5 children and 7 adults. I can't say enough positive comments about the accommodations or the service Ron and Mel provide. Having traveled to Mexico and Isla many times this is the first time everything went off without any issues. Ron recommended transportation to/from the airport check, golf carts waiting at the Villa check, best house on the island check!

The house is in perfect condition and every suite has an awesome view of the sea. There is enough space for everyone to spread out, the kids loved the pool which is one of the largest on the island. The outdoor space is phenomenal with enough seating for everyone to relax.

One of our party locked themselves out of their room and Ron had someone there immediately to assist in opening the room.

The breakfasts were always wonderful and the staff was very accommodating making the kids items they liked.

Overall we had a great time and cannot say enough positive comments on the house or management staff thanks for a wonderful vacation and we'll be back!

Spectacular home! Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were part of a large group of friends celebrating a very special 50th birthday. There were 12 of us and this house accommodated all of us very comfortably. All rooms had beautiful private baths and plenty of closet space. I guess maybe too much closet space because I left a drawer full of clothes in the closet. I emailed Mel Herrman and she was very responsive and sent the staff to the house and retrieved the clothing right away. It's not easy to ship to the states from Isla. I can't say enough nice things about Mel to express my appreciation. She ensured that I received my clothing and shipped them at her expense!! Thanks again Mel! Now, back to the a word, spectacular. The views are breathtaking! Plenty of room for 12. The staff was excellent. Our hostess requested a chef to cook breakfast and a couple of other meals. Mel sent us an angel. Let's just say that Becky, our chef, blew us away with each meal. The presentation was beautiful, the taste devine. Overall, one of the best vacations we've ever had. All of us just hung out in the infinity edge pool pinching ourselves to be in this beautiful place together. I would highly recommend this property and the superb management team.

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my husband's 50th birthday celebration in September 2016. We hosted 5 other couples and everyone raved about the house the entire time. Ron and Mel were so great to work with and helped me plan the entire trip. They recommended restaurants and helped me with the reservation for a special birthday dinner, helped me coordinate the golf cars to have at the house and recommended a caterer who did an amazing job (shout out to Becky!). Every room had it's own private bath and all rooms except for the one on the main floor had amazing views of ocean. We spent most days in the infinity edge pool overlooking the Caribbean and even snorkeled right at the house. Everyone had a great time and thought the house was beautiful. The staff came and prepared breakfast each day and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. If I have an opportunity to plan another trip to Isla, I would definitely consider staying at this home again. Many of the couples commented that it was one of the best vacations they had been on. Loved it!

I could not recommend this house more. The staff was amazing with everything leading up to the planning through our stay. They helped coordinate a fishing trip which was the highlight of the trip for several of us. Anytime, we had a question or a concern it is was quickly addressed and resolved. The pictures of the house and the view do not it justice. We would happily stay there again next year.

AMAZING 40TH Birthday/Adults Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING trip! There were 4 couples in our group and we had more than enough space in this beautiful home. The pictures don't do this home justice. From the moment you walk through the front door and see that beautiful view and turquoise water you will absolutely be in love. Never knew something could be so beautiful. I think I actually pinched myself because I thought I was dreaming..haha! And how cool is it that you travel the island by golf carts!? True paradise..

The staff was totally amazing as well. They made us feel right at home and prepared us a wonderful Mexican breakfast each morning. We even had someone traveling in our group that is gluten free and they made special accommodations just for her. They cleaned the house and our rooms daily, did laundry for us, had fresh towels in our rooms everyday and Javier even went grocery shopping for us. We were treated like kings and queens and left VDLL with 3 new friends.

The house and staff were all completely amazing and we would absolutely return. The 1 and only downfall of this home for us was it's location. It's about a 15 min golf cart ride each way into town. We hit the beach and downtown usually twice a day so that was a lot of time spent going back and forth for us but the view made up for that :)

Can't wait to return to VDLL!

The Best Villa on the Island

  • 5 of 5

Vista De La Luz is absolutely amazing. The pictures are beautiful, as you can see, but once you physically open the iron gates to the villa, it's breathtaking. There are know pictures that can describe the feeling you get from such an exquisite view. The grounds are well manicured with tropical plants and trees. The interior was immaculate upon arrival and each morning thereafter.

We had 10 adults in the home and we could have easily traveled with 4 more comfortably. No one felt as if they had a lesser room. The bathrooms were large and spacious. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable. Each room was it's own oasis.

Each morning we woke up to a delicious breakfast from a great staff who always had a smile on their face. They kept the villa clean and sanitized. Each evening always ended with laughter and joy while sitting around or in the pool. If there are any tension among family members or friends while traveling, this villa has a way of making all problems disappear.

The location of the villa is excellent because it's off the main road on a private culdesac. The attraction near the property is zip lining, snorkeling, souvenir shops, and restaurants.

The only downfall of this villa is that I had to leave.
