“A fabulous place for a romantic getaway!!!!”
Reviewed 23 February 2010

Everything from the romantic ambiance of the place, the delightful staff, the four course meal, all the little extra touches make Vista Villa a cut above the rest. We definately recommend it for a great place to get away with the one you love. Luxurious, comfortable, relaxing, all your delights at your fingertips. PERFECT!!!

Everything about our stay at the B&B was outstanding. It started with meeting Sherry the hostess. She was delighted to see us and greeted us by name. After seeing our room (which was awe inspiring) she showed us all that the Villa had to offer. Altough our stay was only one night (which wasn't nearly long enough!), every moment was awesome. The jetted tub in our room, the unbelievably delicious five course dinner, the roses, chocolates, champagne in our room, the fireplace by the tub, the relaxing atmosphere, the attention paid to every detail. This is certainly a lovers haven. If ever you needed that time away for just you and your lover, this is the place!

Oh my, I love your description of our Villa - a "lover's haven"! We love having the ability to make it so easy for our couples to relax, recharge and rekindle with each other! And don't you forget, if YOU ever wanted to be pampered again ... this is the place to return to! Thanks for your kind words!

I have been in the hospitlity industry for over 10 years and I can humble say that the A Vista Villa is one of THE top Bed & breakfast resorts out there, not only the view it is the company and warm hearts that make this place amazing, so my hats off to you all.

Thank you! And, our hat is off to you for taking the time to let the world know that you believe we are the "top" resort! Especially coming from someone who has been in the industry for over ten years, we take this as a huge compliment from someone who obviously knows the difference! It would be a pleasure to have you back as future guests!

My wife and I stayed in the Royal Suite for our wedding night and we were certainly given the Royal Treatment! Upon arrival, we found rose pedals on the bed, a bottle of champagne on the table, candles lit and the most romantic atmosphere we could have hoped for. Sherry made this such a memorable night for us and we can't thank her enough! The jacuzzi was amazing and the bed even more so. I would HIGHLY recommend everyone to stay here whether it be for a romantic night or for a weekend getaway. I know Sherry will make your stay perfect!

Hello! I thank you for your review but I'm sure you will understand my confusion and how startled I am to read how your online review about your one night stay with us differs from your written and signed review in our guest book - "Thank you for an amazing get away. We couldn't have chosen a better spot to spend our 7th Anniversary".

We are very proud of the fact that the experience we are able to provide our guests differs greatly from a hotel. Our intimate size allows us to offer above and beyond amenities to our couples, anticipate their needs in advance as well being able to be flexible with our policies,

You chose from one of our four luxuriously appointed Jacuzzi suites listed on our website and for this reason I am unclear about your confusion of our size?.

I was pleased to be able to waive our posted minimum stay requirements for you because you explained this was the first vacation without your children!

Although you declined ordering any of our packages, I prepared a large basket of organic fruit to be waiting in your suite as a surprise for you and I doubled the number of Callebaut dark chocolate dipped strawberries on the platter you ordered.

The bar fridge in your suite contained organic milk and your bottled waters were chilled. Two packages of gourmet coffees (locally roasted by Voets) were on your coffee maker and the jam at your toaster oven were locally made by The Jammery.

Your deluxe continental breakfast tray was loaded with yogurts, snacks, home made apple strudels, extra coffees and an extra jar of jam.

The suite you chose with the double headed walk-in shower and the double wide Jacuzzi tub does not have Cable as you stated, just a flat screen TV in there with a built-in DVD player. Had you mentioned you were unable to find a movie in our complimentary 300+ collection to enjoy, I would have invited you to retreat to our private media room to relax in our decadent massaging recliners with your choice of any Netflix or Pay Per View movie. Every suite has a sign posted that states "If there is any possible way to make your stay more comfortable or enjoyable, please just let any of us know!"

Our sign in the common area asking guests to keep their voices down after 11 pm is in no way meant as a curfew, our common areas do not close at any time and it is regrettable you felt you had to retreat to your honeymoon suite. The sign is simply meant as a courtesy to other guests who may have been travelling all day or who have early flights to catch. I believe this is a courtesy expected throughout the industry.

Sunday morning I waived the check-out time for you, from 11 am to 3 pm, inviting you to stay and enjoy our warm salt water pool for an additional four hours. I felt badly you were only able to spend the one night, and it was such a beautiful day - but you stated you had to get back to your children.

I was personally onsite to welcome you on your arrival and so proud to provide the tour of our meticulous gardens, pristine pool, spacious common areas and your chosen suite that boasts unrivaled details and luxurious amenities. I am so truly disappointed to learn that all of these efforts failed to the point you feel you could have been better served, had more amenities and spent less money at a regular hotel.

This Place was great! It located in a very quiet Neighborhood so you couldn't hear much city noise. Their was a great view of the city and you can even see the lake. Definitely get pampered here. Rooms are kept very cool so its nice during the hot of summer. You have control of the temperature with your own air conditioner. Food was delicious and dessert was just as good. There is always music playing outside during the day which is nice but sometimes it would nice to not have the music when sitting outside. The music cannot be heard inside the room. Meals were delicious but the meal took quite a long time. sometimes up to 2hrs. Overall the stay was very enjoyable! it was a very nice way to spend our honeymoon! Upon arrival they give you information about whats happening around the city during your stay. I would suggest that you look at it right away and start booking things that day as things get booked up quickly. Highly Recommended!!!

My boyfriend and I spend New Year’s Eve 2010 at A Vista Villa. We were fortunate enough to have Sherry as our hostess for the evening and she did a wonderful job taking care of our needs and making us feel pampered . From the wonderful five course meal to the champagne on ice and roses waiting for us in our room the entire evening was flawless. The attention to detail exceeded our expectations.

Our room was spotless and had all the amenities we needed for a romantic evening.
What a great way to start off 2010!

I would highly recommend A Vista Villa to any couple that wants a romantic retreat.

Wow ... thanrk you for reviewing your stay as "impeccable" service! Our specialty is enhancing the romance experience with all the little details including having champagne on ice and beautiful red roses waiting to welcome you in your suite! New Year's Eve gala's are a lot of fun and we are so very happy to hear that everything from the 5 course meal to the details in your suite exceeded your expectations! It would be wonderful to have you back for a little more spoiling in the future!

We scoured the web to find "the" place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This resort kept coming up over and over and we decided that reserving there "was meant to be". From the moment we emailed the property, and the nearly immediate response, we knew we were making the right decision . Sherry the hostess, together with Kevin her husband, promised us the royal treatment and delivered in spades! Attention to detail and gorgeous suites (something for every budget) left us with the most difficult decision of which room to book! Before we even arrived we received a beautiful personalized confirmation package in the mail and were greeted with a welcoming poster on our door! We chose to add the "romance package" to our stay which included being welcomed with champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries! Dinner every night with the other guests was amazing as is her cooking and the view from the dining terrace! We arrived strangers and left friends. We will make this a regular occurence and next time will take in the wine tour she offered to arrange for us! This is the place for a totally romantic and relaxed stay where everything is included - breakfast, dinner & wine daily ... we had nothing to think about and it more than exceeded our expectations!
These hosts will do "whatever it takes" and that's hard to find these days! We may even go back to renew our wedding vows on our 30th!

Well we could not be "incredible" without "incredible" guests coming here to be spoiled! A 25th Anniversary is a very special occasion in our view and you are so right, we will absolutely do "whatever it takes" to ensure you do leave here wanting to come back again soon! We are all about the personal touch and thank you for mentioning you received a personalized confirmation package in the mail and that we had a wecoming and congratulatory poster waiting to welcome you on your suite's door! What's missing in the world today - you are correct - is that "personal" touch and that's what we are all about!
