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 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

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.

A piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

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 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.

This house is awesome

  • 5 of 5

I love this house. The pool, the view, the location; it's all perfect. There's not much reason to leave, everything you need is there. Including the great little beach at Carrizalillo just a 5 min walk away. The hammocks and charcoal grill are a great touch too, and got a lot of use. John and Lily are great hosts.

I will come back as often as I can.

Amazing house with spectacular view.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Puerto Escondido and we were very happy that we chose Villa Vista Hemosa. We rented the main house and there was more than enough room for all five of us to spread out and not feel crowded. The house and grounds are just as nice if not better than they are in the pictures. Sitting under the bougainvillea watching whales and dolphins swim by was not a bad way to spend the day. The rinconada and beach are an easy walk from the house and there are several excellent restaurants on the rinconada.

Magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné à la villa en janvier 2017 et je dois dire que tout était parfait. Les lieux étaient propres et entretenus régulièrement. Les propriétaires sont disponibles pour répondre à nos questions et nous aider au besoin. Les lieux sont très sécuritaires. La villa est spacieuse et bien adaptée pour recevoir un grand groupe comme le nôtre La vue sur la baie est splendide et que dire de la superbe piscine ! Je m'ennuie déjà... Merci pour ce merveilleux séjour et les beaux souvenirs que nous en garderont !
