We have returned to VVM year after year and are always super pleased with our vacation. The view is breath taking; nothing like sitting on the large balcony enjoying the view, over coffee in the AM and cocktails beginning at noonish! The pool area is fantastic, with plenty of lounging areas both sunny and shady, as you desire. All the...

After an extremely difficult year, I had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Villa Vista Mar. From the start where Ed, my host, picked me up at the airport to the last final day was the most incredible, peaceful, quiet, relaxing vacation! Both Ed and Lorrie are wonderful hosts. They were extremely helpful with travel suggestions, arranging for transportation and...

My husband, my two children (9 and 7), and I enjoyed our stay. Some places in Ocotal " rock out" all night. This is a quiet place with kind and helpful owners who live on site. We stayed in apt #3 which was plenty big enough for the four of us with two queen beds and a futon. Ocotal beach...

Boyfriend and I stayed at Villa Vista Mar for 3 days on Nov 3-6, 2012. We had the beautiful house to ourselves, and stayed in room 3, which has a comfortable queen bed, large bathroom with a shower big enough for 2 or 3 people and a large living area. The furniture is a bit dated, but in good shape!...

We couldn't say enough about Ed and Lorrie's oasis. We actually booked several nights at the Playa Ocotal Resort and were so disappointed that first night, we had to find another place. Much to our delight, Ed very quickly answered an email request for availability and we drove up to check it out. There was no question we wanted to...

We highly recommend Villa Vista Mar and echo what many of the other reviewers have already mentioned. We found it on Trip Advisor and so the previous reviews were very helpful. Our stay was arranged by email in advance and Ed and Lorrie instilled confidence with their prompt replies and friendly yet professional approach. We rented Apt. #3 that was...

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Vista Mar. The area is very safe and beautiful. Our apartment (#3) was clean, spacious, with great views. The balcony and pool were also very nice. Ed & Lorrie are among the nicest and most helpful people we've ever met while on vacation. Ed took us grocery shopping and gave us tons of...

WOW - I can't believe how nice Ed and Lorrie are! Their villa is beautiful, they live on the top level so if there is any problem (like you forgot your beach towel or how to play hearts) they can deal with it immediately - amazingly hospitable. Within the first 3 hours we had already taken a video to entice...

This vacation started with trip advisor. I regard and value each review. This is where I found Villa Vista Mar and finalized the whole vacation. The owners Ed and Lorrie were extremely helpful with all our plans. Many months ahead of the vacation, we sent emails back and forth and they made very helpful suggestions. They helped us find a...
