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!

Unbelievable.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wow! This home is a dream come true!!

  • 5 of 5

Since the moment we arrived and stepped into the villa the view of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean took our breath away. The fantastic location of this home is unbeatable, private pier, little private beach, best views of CANCUN, el Garrafon and the island. The home seems brand new, you can tell there is a lot of care and maintenance into every area of the home...this is a BIG home!!

We looked at many homes in Isla for this vacation, it is very important that you are located looking at the CANCUN - ISLA MUJERES bay, there are many homes on the other side (Caribbean and view is not as nice). CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST IS A SUPER PLUS!! Staff was very friendly, 2 maids every day, they even did our laundry.

Did a scuba diving excursion and the boat picked us up right at the pier and dropped us off the same way...that was fantastic...we jumped right into the large infinity pool right after that!!

We cannot wait to come back...this is the way to go!!

Spring break

  • 5 of 5

Great house and staff is wonderful. Great breakfast everyday and house is new. Lots of space for a lot of people and u never feel crowed. All bedrooms had a bath and most had a view. We rented golf carts to get around. My only disappoinred was that in march pool not heated and would of been nice for kids, it was a little cool.

Exceeded every expectation and remarkable villa!

  • 5 of 5

Vista de la Luz is absolutely breaktaking - the pictures are nothing compared to the real thing. We had a group of 7 people and could have easily had 5-6 more with more than enough room to spread out. The staff were all wonderful and more than willing to help with whatever we needed. They also kept the place very clean - even after we stayed up drinking a couple of nights and left the place had glasses and our stuff all over the place - to our amazement, we would wake up, breakfast would be ready and the place spotless!

The only issue we had was with the beach directly in front of the villa - it isn't the best place to swim which was very disappointing at first. It's rocky and and all of the sea grass hasn't been cleaned up creating an ideal place for sea urchins and other sea creatures you wouldn't be able to see. The Manager from the hotel behind the villa warned us when we unknowingly decided to get in near the dock and immediately pointed at several sea urchins and potential for a very unpleasant several days. It turned out not to be a big deal at all though because the island is so small, a quick 2 minute golf cart ride to the East side of the island takes you to one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen!! This also gets you to the open caribbean sea so good waves too!!

I would highly recommend this place - we got a few friends together and realized the amount of money we would pay a resort could get us a luxurious private villa and this is the way we will travel from now on. Awesome place! Awesome service!
