About the property

Located on the quiet north side of Cozumel, this 4 bedroom, 5 bath house is absolutely amazing, one of the most luxurious in Cozumel.


Ever heard of Paulina Rubio? She is a Latino superstar—singer, actress, and TV hostess who has sold over 20 million records. And Casa Santa Pilar happens to be among this starlet’s favorite vacation destinations in Cozumel.

Situated on the quiet and secluded north side of the island, this lavish four-bedroom, five-bath house is one of the most sought-after and luxurious in Cozumel. This gorgeous home sits right on the beach and offers a host of amenities: a pool table, an indoor hot tub, wet bar, a master suite that is essentially the size of an entire apartment, and an on-site night watchman for the utmost in security, privacy and peace of mind.

The formal living room of this incredible space overlooks the sparkling freshwater pool and the glimmering blue waters of the Caribbean. The open-concept design also offers terrific sight lines for the kitchen and dining room—the former is fully equipped with appliances and amenities on every scale, and the latter provides a lovely area for up to eight friends to gather for a feast.

While the whole home is worthy of hosting a get-together, the officially designated entertainment area is home to a large and incredibly comfortable U-shaped sofa, chic floor rugs, a pool table, and a spectacular wet bar area that is even more amazing when you flip on the lights at dusk.

For your convenience, there’s also a full bathroom that has an entrance from both indoors and out, so guests can rinse off the sea and sand from their daily excursions without having to venture through the home. There’s also a gorgeous bedroom on this floor, which comes furnished with a king-sized bed with a beautifully appointed ensuite.

Travel up the dramatic staircase to the two additional bedrooms, one featuring a queen-sized bed and balcony with stunning views of the private pool and white-sand beach, and the other with two queens and adjoining bath.

Ah, and the master suite, which the famous former guest undoubtedly enjoyed: it features a raised king-sized bed, separate lounging area complete with a sink-in-soft sofa and TV, and a magnificent balcony that overlooks the shimmering waters of both the pool and ocean.

That’s not all. The master suite bath is as large as the entire downstairs dining room, with his and hers walk-in closets. The luxury continues with an in-room massage table, huge walk-in shower, double vanities, a separate make-up area, and—get this—a hot tub with unencumbered views of the ocean.

When you're ready to spend some time outside, take a dip in the incredibly spacious freshwater pool, or journey down the rustic wooden path that leads directly to the beach. There’s also a fantastic (and shaded) outdoor kitchen, where you can spend an afternoon amazing your friends with your new Mexican-inspired recipes or time-honored barbecue skills.

At sunset, when the moon is high and the mood is right, you can take a walk on the beach, which stretches a mile in each direction. And the next morning, when you're ready to do it all over again, you can arrange to be picked up for a diving or snorkeling excursion—that neighboring dock is at your disposal.

When you’re ready to explore the local side of the island, the bustling waterfront promenade of Cozumel is a 15- to 20-minute drive away. This is where you will discover abundant high-end stores, boutiques, local vendors, restaurants, grocery stores, a movie theater, bars and a vibrant nightlife. This is also a primary port for cruise ships as well as the ferry terminal, with daily trips to and from Playa del Carmen. You'll find dozens upon dozens of dive shops that are anxious to help you discover the underwater world for which Cozumel is famed.

You don’t have to be a superstar to vacation like one at Casa Santa Pilar in tropical Cozumel.

All great but windows and doors in disrepair!

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful. The windows and sliding glass doors along with the screens are in very bad shape and need replacement. Spent most of our stay, when inside the house or on the patios or just outside the dining or living area, fighting off an immense amount of mosquitos. They need to have some installed electric devices around perimeter of house to be used when gathered outside the house. It annoyed us the entire time at the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for that feedback. We have repaired a number of windows and doors based on your comments. Mosquitoes are unfortunately sometimes an issue when it rains, as it did for this renter's trip. Future renters should understand that if they decide to come during the summer when it rains more often and humidity levels are higher (this renter came in August) there are more mosquitoes than in the winter months (Nov-Apr). That's unfortunately just the nature of a tropical climate :(

Outstanding - beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

Magic! The house is better than advertised and right on the beach. It was perfect for a group of 6 people with more than enough space to either hang out together or separate for a bit privacy. The pool was ideal with a shallow part for young kids and a deeper section for adults. One of the best things about the location and definitely undersold, is that it's North of town and away from the Cruise Ship Crowds. It's a perfect location. You can rent scooters right outside the front door from the hotel next door which is all you need to get around the island. Diana our host was friendly, super helpful and really made sure we had the best time possible while we were there. House cleaning is included and is a nice touch and Pilar is lovely. We never heard any noise from the El Cozumeleno Hotel next door or anywhere else for that matter - very private and enjoyable experience. An absolute must is getting in the Private Chef Diana recommends. His name is Chef Antonio - The Anthony's Cuisine - Just outstanding and adds to the overall experience at Casa Santa Pilar. We seriously wouldn't consider staying anywhere else if we return to Cozumel.

We had absolutely the best time.

  • 5 of 5

We had the absolute best time at Casa Santa Pilar. The home is exactly as pictured and even more beautiful in person. When we arrived they had the house A/Cs on and the home was spotless. Diana greets us and we arrived early and made sure we were comfortable and explained all the fancy details of the home. Pilar was wonderful and kept the house nice and clean during our stay. Room and bath rooms are very roomy and the closets gorgeous. A/Cs were cold and hot water in the home was hot. The pool is beautiful and the beach, just steps out our door. We spent a lot of time outside of the home too, either at the beach, in the pool or in town. Town is just an 5-8 min ride and cabs are very easy to get. Even though Cozumel is a safe place the added touch of security guards during the night was nice. They were very sweet and made us feel completely safe. Diana was the best. Whatever we needed or any questions we had, at any point in time, she was just a phone call away, and ready to remedy any situation we may have. The staff at the home is the best around. Our flights were delayed multiple times and Diana and Pawel were very helpful in accommodating us if we needed to stay an extra day. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect home!!
