We fell in love with Puerto Escondido when visiting our son early in 2004. Our dream of building a beach house came true once we found the perfect property on the bluff top above Carrizalillo beach. Our son John designed and built Villa Hermosa, its adjoining palapa and is the caretaker of the property as well. Our family enjoys the relaxed atmosphere in Puerto and the location of the Villa Hermosa is walking distance to shopping and many local restaurants. It’s a wonderful vacation spot and we are honored to have you consider staying at our home.
The palapa can be rented separately from the main house and has a private exterior entrance. It is also accessible from the main house via an internal stairway. My wife and I often stay in the palapa when our children and grandchildren use the main house so that we have additional privacy. The palapa has a full kitchen, barbeque and dipping pool as well a large patio overlooking the bay.
Villa Hermosa has an infinity pool and large patio as well as an outdoor barbeque area. The view is spectacular and overlooks Carrizalillo beach and beyond. Tours to see Puerto’s famous sea turtles and dolphins leave from Carrizalillo beach and it is a wonderful area for snorkeling and swimming.
Our son John is available to act as a “concierge” during your stay and can arrange tours, a private chef and massage services. We are glad to answer any questions about the house and palapa.
We hope that you choose Villa Hermosa and know you will enjoy Puerto Escondido and all it has to offer.
John Kassabian purchased this villa in 2008
Carrizalillo Beach is the most beautiful Beach in Puerto Escondido. Our neighborhood is the quietest in Puerto Escondido. The House is spacious, with Large terraces. Large yard, with a big pool, were you will never feel crowded.
The home is large, and it is in town. Very few properties in Puerto, on the oceanfront of this size. We are built on a double lot.
Where to begin?! Our stay at the wonderful Villa Vista Hermosa far exceeded all my expectations. Pictures of this tranquil home perched high on a cliff, with its breathtaking ocean view, really can’t do it justice. John thought of everything when designing his home, from the beautifully tiled en suite bathrooms to the multiple large gathering spaces to the outdoor fans over the hammocks for when the temperatures rose. The view over Playa Carrizalillo and the Pacific Ocean is majestic, and the walk to the beach takes a little over 5 minutes. (The city stairs down to Playa Carrizalillo are a bit steep to walk back up but sturdy and built into the hillside, and we were all happy to have a little extra exercise). The beach has a relaxed vibe and is safe for swimming, but some days we found it hard to leave our own pool. Did I mention how gorgeous the grounds and flowers were at the Villa Vista Hermosa? The gardener (I’m sorry; I can’t remember his name but he was so nice) keeps the varied blooms and foliage in beautiful condition, and the housekeeper Christina could not have been more gracious. The home, pool and gardens were all impeccably maintained and kept.
We rented both the downstairs portion of the home as well as the upstairs palapa. There were multiple friends joining my husband and I to celebrate our birthdays, and it was perfect for our group’s needs. We enjoyed and used both areas; the downstairs was great to lounge in the hammocks after we swam and to gather for the meals we ate at home in the well-appointed kitchen. The upstairs was lovely for enjoying ocean breezes and the cooling dipping pool at night.
John was very welcoming and always available to answer all our questions. He kindly gave us a tour of PE when we arrived with recommendations of places to visit, which gave us a good overview of the different neighborhoods and playas. John’s wife Lilly set up massages on-site for us as our Spanish needs a lot of work. Receiving a massage while listening to the ocean was pretty fantastic! Cabs were always easy to find a few blocks from the house, and usually under $2.00 US to anywhere in town.
John is very kind and laid back; a perfect concierge. We can’t say enough about our wonderful vacation at the Villa Vista Hermosa except that we will return! One last recommendation- if you have the chance to help the turtle rescue release baby turtles into the ocean, I highly recommend this near-magical experience.
My Aspen Colorado Family (many friends going to a destination wedding) just spent a week at Villa Vista Hermosa. After a long travel we arrived at this beautiful home. We were greeted by John, his fiancée Lily and their dog Max. They opened their home to us with open arms. John walked us threw the house explaining all we needed to know. This large 4 bedroom with 4 on suite bath accommodated all parties involved including privacy that was desired. The large living space both indoor and out was ample for large parties. The grounds of the property were impeccably maintained by a wonderful man named Frederico, who on day two opened fresh coconuts for our party. (Which were much needed) Cristina our housekeeper who as well was very friendly. Her presence was there but not know. John offered us his personally car for rent which we used. (oops don't misplace the key!!) Bringing us to the pool. Probably the best view in Carrizalillo. Unlimited views of the ocean for hours. The outside shower was one on my favorite parts. Nico (the pool guy) did an amazing job at keeping the pool clean and clear after a few late night fiestas. This villa is perfectly located in a quaint little town. Walking to the beach or the main street for a wonderful meal it has all to offer and more. With much love from Colorado we thank you!!
Our family spent the month of January in Puerto Escondido and could unfortunately only enjoy four nights at Vista Hermosa before moving to another house. The house is awesome with everything you might need for a perfect vacation. The kitchen and open area to the living room is simply huge. We really enjoyed that the house was in one level and had huge windows with fantastic views.
Kitchen was extremely well equipped and even had a dishwasher. Very unusual in Mexico. The fridge with easy access to "good" water and and ice maker was appreciated in the hot weather.
We were only four people staying in the house but could easily have been 12. The four bedrooms are simply huge with tons of closet space if needed. If the upstairs apartment is used then 15 people is no problem. During our stay we did not use the air condition and found the ceiling fans to be perfect during the nights.
Most of the time was spent on the outside terrass which has easy access though the huge sliding windows. The pool is huge and the kids were doing laps all day long. Views are magical with nice views of the ocean and Playa Carizalillo.
We know this area from before and prefer it instead of Zicatela. Within a few minutes you have some of the best restaurants in Puerto Escondido. Great food and very economical. Some good places:
El Nene - Try the Rajas tacos or anything on the menu. Also nice drinks.
Sushi - Right next for to El Nene is a such place which is fantastic. It's run by a Japanese couple who go fishing every morning for fresh ingrediants. The Mexican food is of course fantastic but since we are spending two months each year here it's nice with a change in flavour every now and then
Cafecito - They have everything , including nice bread. I personally love the Mole
Paris Bistro - Great food, love the outside garden. Top notch service and nice atmosphere
Las Cazuelas - Not a fancy place but it you love Posole this is your place. Mostly visited by Mexicans which is a good sign. The Poole is fantastic and very affordable.
If you head down to Zicatela it's 30 Pesos for a taxi. Try La Olita or Spirulina, great choices.
Safety can be an issue in Mexico but not in Puerto Escondido. We still found it nice to have Max the dog in our front yard and also someone living in the little casita in the front yard. Always there if you have questions. The house is also surrounded the high walls. We hope to be back next year!!
