About John Kassabian
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 Vista 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 Vista 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, barbecue 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 barbecue 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
Why John Kassabian chose Carrizalillo
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.
What makes this Villa unique
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.

Incredible stay in Puerto Escondido
When we first entered the villa it was unreal how beautiful everything was. The view of the playa is incredible, the villa itself is stunning and the backyard is magic. John is a super host, he answered fast and was always happy to help us with everything. We couldn't ask for more and we would gladly recommend this stay to anybody. The closest beach is about 5 minutes walk, it is a bit far from the main town (45 minutes walk) but there is a lot of cheap taxi and some great restaurants around.
Thank you so much,
See you next time!
Eight of us had the best family vacation here for 10 days in February, no one wanted to leave.The house is spacious, clean and perfectly set up with amazing views and a great pool. Typically, we go to all inclusive resorts and this was our first time renting a house and fending for ourselves in a different country. We were curious as to how we would like this type of vacation and it far exceeded our expectations!
There are two beaches close by, the one you can see from the property, about a 5 min walk away and another one which is about 10 min walk. The second one we would go down to in the mornings and walk the length of it, beautiful sand, crashing waves and hardly anyone around.
We had intended to cook a few of our meals but with so many different restaurants such a short walk away we ended up eating all of our dinners out. The meals at these places while inexpensive, were great, so much flavour! You don't need a vehicle here, we did walk a lot but as it does get quite hot we took quite a few taxis which were so inexpensive and very easy to find.
John was great right from the first email, I was impressed with how quickly he responded every time to any questions or concerns we had. John also helped us organise transportation to and from the airport which was greatly appreciated. We have recommended this place to friends and will definitely go back!
Thanks John and Lily, you have a beautiful property!

A great home in the best part of Mexico
The property is ideal.
Fantastic! Perhaps the best property in Puerto Escondido
Villa Vista Hermosa is a beautiful home that you will absolutely love. We had an amazing stay in Puerto Escondido and I would not want to stay anywhere other than this property if, and when, we return.
The house is very spacious, affording everyone ample space to stretch out, relax, and enjoy the amazing views and scenery. The yard is impeccably landscaped and the pools are sparkling blue and well-cared for. The house staff, (housekeeper, gardener, pool service) were very personable and friendly, always willing to chat but otherwise went about their business tending to the property. (Frederico the gardener is there every weekday morning cleaning the yard and the housekeeper and pool man are there M,W,F for part of the day.) We couldn't have been happier with the service.
John and his wife were gracious hosts, always available to answer questions about the community and local attractions. We were very pleased with their hospitality. Their dogs GiGi and Lua like to wander onto the grounds whenever they are around, ( if you want them to,) but if you don't John will make sure they don't bother you.
Overall, we could not be happier with our stay and look forward to returning to this lovely property. We highly recommend it.
A piece of paradise!
Wow what an amazing time we had. I can't say enough about the house, we were a large group of (8 adults and 4 kids). We used the main house and it was even better than we imagined...so much better than the pictures! The four bedrooms are all very large, indoor area as well as outdoor areas were so spacious and the absolute best part was the view. The ocean was right below us and pool area was so relaxing. The kids loved the pool as did the adults but the beach is right below so the option of both was just so convenient. Close to restaurants and bar everything is at your doorstep. We definitely hope to return, thank you John and Lily (who were so helpful and accommandating)...your home truly was a piece of paradise.
The very best place in Mexico to vacation but don’t tell anybody!
