Great way to experience the wonderful island of Cozumel
We visited Cozumel in March. This was our 3rd trip to the island with the first 2 visits being at resorts and without kids. We had 3 kids with us - 11, 9 and 4. We had more than enough room and privacy for the 2 families to share the house, it was fantastic to each have our own bedroom with king size bed, private bathroom and balcony. 3 couples could share this home very comfortably. The home had everything we needed and then some, including a great supply of pool toys for the kids. We used every aspect of the place including getting a massage from Frank SiRa up on the roof top on the first day, so nice he came to us! Tony was accommodating and helpful but we really didn't need to contact him because everything was working perfectly for us. The beach bars are walking distance with fun for everyone - the kids enjoyed the inflatable water park the most. Getting to the east side beaches (kids also enjoyed the "crashing waves") is simple from here as well as getting back into town for supplies. We had better luck with grocery shopping at Sam's than we did at Mega but Mega is a really nice store if you want to stay closer. Gail is so easy to work with, this has been the easiest vacation rental for us so far and we would be happy to spend another vacation here. This experience allowed us to enjoy much more of the island than staying at a resort. There are so many wonderful restaurants and places to go here and we always felt like we were double spending to leave the resort. We visited Punta Sur, Chakannab, Paradise Beach, Carlos and Charlies, all the east side stops and down town on Sunday was so much fun. The kids literally cried when we had to leave.
Nice house for families
Nice 3 bedroom house located 7 miles from town. Pool is small, was perfect for our 4 year old. House had lots of room, well furnished. Tony was very helpful with any issues. Recommend renting a car. Had a nice beach area and dock within easy walking and pickup for dive companies.
Perfect Setting for a Family Gathering
Villa Rosella was lovely. We're an extended adult family through grand kids (six adults, two young children). The house was ideal with three separate bedrooms and baths and many places to get away, find interesting spaces, or gather: private porches with hammocks, three large tables at which everyone could eat (in the house, by the pool palaypa, and on the rooftop palaypa), a living room (inside), etc... . The pool is small, but refreshing. The garden greenery's peaceful with birds and resident lizards ; - ) . The upper rooftop area has a great breeze at night; it's a wonderful place to sit out.
The house has many conveniences as well: a gas grill (a little funky), lots of toys and a crib for small children (we were even provided car seats!), plenty of drinking water, toilet paper!, soaps, etc.., some basic cooking supplies (generally not provided at most rentals, such as cooking oil and some spices), and of course, the private pool.
The beach and beach clubs--open until 5, are about a five minute's walk from the house. Town is about 15 to 20 minutes away.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Villa Rosella and highly recommend it.
The property was clean and well maintained.
Tony Rome was kind and helpful. We enjoyed our stay at Casa Birdie.
Perfect Bachelorette Party Pad
I stayed at Villa Rosella with a group of 10 girls for my sister's bachelorette party. Let me start off by saying Gail Fox provided exceptional customer service. Before I booked the property, she spent over an hour on the phone with me answering all of my travel questions/concerns about Cozumel. She was very responsive via email whenever I had more questions. After I booked the property and sent the deposit, I received a cute package from Gail with a guide book of Cozumel, maps of the island, detailed directions, a list of her suggested places to eat, and phone numbers for Tony and his wife - both US and Mexico numbers.
Once we arrived to Villa Rosella, we found the house was exactly as we expected based on the listing. With 10 girls in one house, we never felt it was overcrowded. It helped with all of the places to go like the rooftop terrace, the two balconies upstairs in each bedroom, the backyard pool/patio area, and the very open kitchen and living room. There was always somewhere to escape the crowd and find peace. I absolutely loved how big and spacious the bedrooms were. My favorite part of the bedrooms were the balconies with a private hammock on each. The house was kept very clean and well-maintained. We did cook breakfast in the morning, so we found the kitchen to be very fully equipped. It was so nice to have an abundance of beach and bath towels - that was one less thing we had to pack! It was also extremely nice to have not only WiFi, but also a house phone that we could call the US and Mexico for free. The house was very private and i felt very secure with the locks and bars on all of the windows and doors.
The location of the house was nice because we were away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. It was very quiet and private feeling. I also liked that there are a few beach clubs right next door - a very short walk from the house!
As for the property manager, Tony Rome - he was the BEST! When we picked up the key from his restaurant, we were given lots of toilet paper and paper towels. He called and checked on us at least once a day, if not more. The first day we had toilet issues downstairs and one of the hammocks fell down on the bedroom balcony. I called Tony that evening and he had someone come early the next morning to hang the hammock back up and unclog the toilet. He was so kind and very hospitable.
I would highly recommend this piece of paradise and i will certainly be back for another stay!
Thank you Gail and Tony!!!
We spent 5 nights at this gem, everything was perfect. We were 7 people and the house never felt crowded. The pool was so nice and we loved watching the stars and moon. The beach is very close. We had the dive boat pick us up at the pier every morning. We cleaned our gear in the sink in the backyard. We always felt very safe and the house is very secure.
Tony and Gail were amazing to deal with, Tony called every day to check up on us and see if we needed anything. We will definitely be staying here again..
One of the things that makes Villa Rosella special is it's location. Being next to Paradise Beach and San Fransisco Beach means that all of the water sports, beach and diving activities are at your doorstep. There are several restaurants within walking distance. Yet you still have all of the tropical beauty of being located out of town. Taxis are always nearby at the beaches. For divers, all of the favorite dive sites are very close by. Parasailing, jet skis, and boats are all available at the beach sites. It;s perfect!! Dive boats will pick up divers a nearby San Francisco Beach Dock--a 3-4min. walk. Other Activities: dive rinse sink and outdoor shower
