“Vacation of a lifetime”
Reviewed 1 January 2011 for a stay in December 2010

We arrived with joyful anticipation ... and we were never disappointed! Wolfgang is an impeccable, delightful host who made Casita Buena Vista feel like a home away from home. We were sad to leave, but happy that we booked our next visit before we departed.

Eldon greeted us upon our arrival, and after showing us around the house and property, he pointed us toward Mr. Joe's, where we enjoyed a lunch of fish burgers and a couple of Belikins. Jonathan from Carts Belize brought our golf cart to us at the restaurant -- nice! -- and we met up with Wolfgang after our meal. Wolfgang took us on a two-hour tour of San Pedro town, stopping along the way to point out must-eat restaurants (EVERY tip was on point!). He also took us to pick up necessary provisions: lamb salami at The Butcher, a fresh baguette at The Baker, a case of beer at the distributor, locally roasted coffee and Austrian cheese at Island Buy, and fresh-squeezed pineapple-orange juice and assorted vegetables and fruits at Maria's roadside stand. Wolfgang knows everyone at these sites and introduced us not just as guests but as friends. Each day, he and Eldon (always accompanied by Cookie and Affie, Wolfgang's sweet and silly pups) inquired about our sleep and any needs we had, and encouraged us to enjoy the many island adventures available to us or simply to relax on the beach.

The Casita is located 2.5 miles from town, and we found that the golf cart was well worth the money we spent -- a 10% discount from Carts Belize made an already reasonable deal even better. We could be in the heart of it all in a few short minutes, and we often took advantage of the opportunity to drive into town in order to check out the fresh catch of the day (be there no later than 9 a.m. if you want fresh fish to cook in the finely appointed kitchen at the Casita) or to check out the local restaurants Wolfgang recommended. (Must eat: lobster breakfast burritos at Victoria House, conch fritters and fish tacos at Elvi's Kitchen, fish tacos at Caliente, bbq lobster and grilled grouper at Crave, every single pupusa at the Pupuseria, fish burgers at Mr. Joe's, and the crispy fish wrap at Wild Mango's.) Once we drove back to the Casita, we felt like we were the only people on the island! We found ourselves in the inviting lounge chairs to read fiction and drink cold Belikins on several afternoons, breaking only to swim in and around the rock wall, take a walk with Cookie, and chat with our new friends, Wolfgang and Eldon.

When we sought to scuba and snorkel, Wolfgang made terrific recommendations. We went on a scuba dive with Ecologic Divers and two snorkel trips (including a day-long snorkel and beach BBQ on Christmas Day) with Suya Tours. All were outstanding, and because we were staying with Wolfgang, we even got a bit of a discount on the BBQ adventure and were able to postpone an afternoon snorkel trip without penalty.

We've already recommended Casita Buena Vista (and the Casa's two-bedroom/two-bath apartment) to friends and strangers alike, and we cannot wait to return next year. It will be wonderful to reunite with our new friends!

Management Response

I am sorry to hear about this disappointment.
The entire week we were not made aware of any of these problems, though Eldon our groundskeeper is on duty daily 9 to 5 (except Sunday). Also the maid was here three times that week.

Mirta, our housekeeper is excellent and I personally check each and every time.
Linen was washed and housekeeping done also at mid week (records show on Wed. Dec. 8/10) with fresh towels supplied.
Naturally, additional fresh towels are available upon request.

Our groundskeeper is instructed to ask every morning if everything is to our guests' satisfaction and if they have slept well. We even would have had an additional softer mattress in stock; however most/nearly all vacationers prefer the hard one.

I am sorry to hear about Mr. Kyser's dissatisfaction after the fact and would have liked the the opportunity to solve the problems during his stay, not after the fact.

We take our business very serious and given the opportunity will solve any problem for our guests.
