Private Oasis - Luxury 3BR/3BA Villa with Garden and Pool

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 6 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Villa Oasis is named Oasis after the garden. The feel is that an Oasis has been created in Cozumel's Town, San Miguel. Once you enter the property, you are surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation, the sound of a waterfall, perimeter fountains, and a 1/2 acre lot that is shaded by huge, old mango trees and tall Royal Palms. This sets the ambiance, which is cooling to your senses.

The house has three bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed, a second bedroom has 2 twin beds, and the third bedroom is extremely large with two built in twin beds and a queen bed. Six people can sleep very comfortably, with a maximum occupancy of 8. There are three full bathrooms in the house.

The living room and dining room are done in Mayan stone, all leading to a bougainvillea covered patio. The living room has a built-in, giant screen TV with a surround-sound system, cable TV, DVD, and CDs. The house also has high-speed wireless internet and Garden speakers for Apple music products.

The gardener comes daily to clean the yard and pool.

Sylvia the housekeeper comes daily to clean up, do the linens, dishes, and prepare breakfast if requested. She is a exceptional cook, just give her market/shopping money and your request , she'll bring the receipts and change with the groceries and cook fantastic meals in the kitchen or garden grill. Breakfast is free, Lunch tip her $10.00 usd, Dinner $15.00 usd per person. she'll do the magic.

We are 2 blocks from the main Boulevard and just 10 minutes away from Chankanaab, where you can snorkel, dive, swim with dolphins, and do much more.

What a great finale to your day, that is, sitting on the patio reminiscing about your unforgettable day at the beach or your day scuba diving, and knowing for sure you are in paradise!


San Miguel Town located on the Island of Cozumel is a small, Caribbean Town with many restaurants, shops, scuba diving shops, plaza, hotels, shopping centers and Chankanaab which is a nature marine reserve,

There are several beautiful, sandy white beaches. You can choose secluded ones or you can spend your day jetskiing, paragliding, and more. Visit Punta Sur by kayak or jeep, or see Cozumel's beginning's at the museum in town. We are a 30 minute ferry ride away from the Yucatan Peninsula's port or Playa del Carmen, where you can spend a day or two visiting the famous ruins of Tulum and Chichen-Itza. Playa del Carmen is only 45 Kilometers from Cancun International airport. The location of Cozumel offers whatever you want it to be and yet it is definitely a laid back and relaxing atmosphere.

Jeep and Car Rentals are easy and affordable the rate is approximately $35 USD per day, and can be delivered to the house.

If you can't decide between Mexico or the Caribbean, why not pick both!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was a wonderful treat, and we thank you for making it available for us to use. Clearly it is a labor of love and we feel lucky to have been able to have had it as our home for the time we were in Cozumel.

Relaxing island home

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property! So many different, well-considered outdoor spaces for lounging, game-playing, and eating the delicious and beautifully presented breakfasts from Sylvia. There were a couple of days that we woke with full intention of going on an excursion, but ultimately opted to just stay and relax and enjoy the fountains and the foliage and the comforts of a home away from home. So sad to have to leave this oasis!

Villa Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa, it was clean, spacious and accommodated my family great! It was nicely decorated and the outside courtyard was wonderful. We will definitely try to stay here when we visit Cozumel next year! The only thing I would suggest changing is allowing large dogs. My goldendoodle is 60lbs and is the gentlest dog you would ever meet but the owners only allowed small dogs. An untrained small dog can cause as much destruction as an untrained dog.

Wonderful home, pool & staff! Great location, walk to shops & restaurants! Highly reccommend

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this home! The location is great! Safe to walk to the many shops and cafe's and waterfront restaurants. The house was very comfortable, and cool! The stone walls in the living & dining rooms helped keep the home very comfortable! The air conditioning in each of the rooms was helpful, too. Beds in all of the rooms were nice, and the staff kept the rooms clean and fresh, even placed decorative elements in the bathrooms each day. The staff was wonderful, cooked our dinners 4 of our 6 nights there - even prepared our fresh-caught deep sea fish for us! This was a great vacation for me (Mom) who loves family meals, but didn't want to cook on our vacation. Sometimes going out every night can be stressful, dining at home was a delight. The pool and yard was perfect, our kids brought hammocks, and lounged under the trees. We brought a pool volleyball net, and the pool was a perfect size for family games and lounging on rafts. The fountains created such a relaxing ambience. The Home Manager, Deb was terrific. She was in constant communications, and met us on arrival on the island, and toured the entire home - explained everything and she even connected us to a fantastic Dive Master, Jorge, who took our family on 6 of the most incredible Cozumel dives. He was very knowledgeable, and we dove each day, and came home to a nice dinner. Perfect vacation, all thanks to the Villa Oasis team! This was our first trip to Cozumel, and we cannot wait to go back! And we know where we will stay - Villa Oasis!

Villa Oasis Cozumel Mexico

  • 4 of 5

We had a party of six that stayed at Villa Oasis from 1/15/17-1/29/17. We had read all the reviews of this property prior to booking. The majority of the reviews were great. Once we committed to renting, our correspondence with Clodia and Deb began. They were very quick to respond to all of our many questions. The pictures do not do this property, especially the gardens, justice. The house is L shaped corner house, that sits on the back off the street. You enter through a gate on 10th Ave. and it opens up onto the garden and pool. So, essentially the there is no backyard to this residence...the entire garden is the front yard. The house is conveniently located close to town, and directly behind the Mega shopping center.

The house itself is a rustic beauty, there are no frills to the house. There are three bedrooms, all with dated tile bathrooms, all but one shower head was low pressure. The kitchen is very basic, and very dated. The sound system in the living room sound system, does not work, so bring your own. There are TV's in the living room and two of the three bedrooms. The air conditioners were functioning, the master bedroom air conditioner did leak on our last night. Overall, the house worked, it would be nice for the owner to upgrade the sound system and shower heads...and re-tile the bathrooms.

Silvia is the housekeeper, she is a sweetheart. Her English is very limited, but she will call a friend if she can't interpret what you're trying to stay. We did not take advantage of her Mayan cooking, although I understand it is amazing.

Overall, we loved Villa Oasis...we will definitely consider renting it for future trips to Cozumel!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to comment. ALL your points are well taken. 1- I'm having the plumber get hydro pressure and new heads for the middle and last bedroom. Should be fine by the weekend. 2- The sound system is tricky because of tek evolution. Most everyone brings their music. So I will have a speaker set of 2 like Sonos or Bose and leave instructions for Bluetooth pairing and a Cable for those who don't have Bluetooth. I will bring them my next trip to the US in two weeks. 3- Upgrading the kitchen. This is a tricky one. Silvia is our cook and I made it purpose built for her. I understand visitors may want to cook on their own. But what specifically would you recommend be done? 4- Re-tiling bathrooms. Yes! Summer project. Again thank you for your feedback, and best regards, Mauricio Moreno

Wonderful villa in the center of Cozumel, a true oasis

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights over new year 2016/2017. We were two families of 7 people.

We all loved everything in the house and garden, it felt like being guest at someone's home. Silvia is an adorable women, what she didn't have in length :) she truly compensated in hospitality, smiles, adorable food. If you seeking a house with soul and not seeking the modern "boxes" this is a place to fall in love with. Deb was always helpful and we can really recommend villa oasis - we are coming back, that's a promise.

Amazing Food, Close to Everything and a Great Pool

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Oasis! It was easy to communicate with Clodia and Deb prior to our arrival and an easy exchange of the keys was made with my sister as she arrived before me. Once there we had a great time lounging by the pool and enjoying Silvia's cooking. Silvia is an absolutely wonderful woman and we loved everything she cooked for us. You can't go wrong with anything on Silvia's menu. The property is cleaned by Silvia and very early mornings we saw Chuco cleaning the pool and cleaning the garden (he's very quiet so you might miss him unless you are awake). We had a very minor issue with one of the shower heads and as soon as we told Chuco he had it fixed. All of the rooms have their own AC unit and we kept the doors shut to the bedrooms to help with cooling. With the AC and large amount of fans in the house we had absolutely no problems with the temperatures. We spent a fair amount of time enjoying the pool and the water features on the property. Great location (only a couple minutes walk to the Megastore) and you can easily walk to everything in town. We are already looking forward to our next stay at Villa Oasis!
