About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10


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.

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!!

Excellent Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at many properties on Cozumel and this one is on the top 5...maybe top 3. The home is north of town and on the beach. The house itself if beautiful and has four perfect bedrooms, one with two queen beds. There are 5 full bathrooms and they also are way above average. The kitchen is huge and the pool table was great fun. The air conditioner in the house does the job well. The pool, although small, is great for that afternoon adult refreshment. Although the pool boasts a giant hottub....well apparently it does not get hot. The El Cozumeleno Hotel is right next door but never did we hear a peep from the property and the beach in front of the house was empty except for those walking down the beach. Housekeeping was every other day and that was certainly plenty. The house is also well secured with a night watchman. We were very satisfied from start to finish. Diana really makes the stay special...she doesn't lurk but is readily available to solve a problem or answer a question. I am one of those people who add days on the fly and they even do that very well. Rent a car but follow EVERY speed limit. Apparently the new scam is a radar gun and cash payment on the spot on the road. I am a very quick study and learned after the first visit with the roadside justice.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in perfect location. 5 minutes from town and far from the crowds. Pictures are exactly what you will expect when you walk through the front door, immaculate, great views and privacy. Could not have expected more. Check in was easy and the information sent to us prior to our arrival answered any questions we may have had. Guido's, Rinaldi's and Cocnuts, great food and atmosphere. Thank you all for a wonderful week!!!

Great house for 7 people

  • 4 of 5

Hi, we loved the house and it's space and comfort. All of the contacts associated with the house were extremely responsive and helpful during the planning process and our stay. We were able to walk next door to a hotel to catch a cab any time we needed. The A/C was topnotch! The septic system did start to smell on the 4th day. The washer needs laundry detergent and I couldn't figure out how to use the dryer so I just air dried clothes. Cozumel does not have good restaurants so I highly recommend a chef. Antonio was fabulous, a true chef, not just a cook and we paid for daily maid service and Pillar kept us organized. My three boys under 11 loved the pool and the hot tub which is unusual to find in Mexico so they lived in it.

Great time in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with Casa Santa Pilar. The house is beautiful and huge. The pool is very nice and clean. The House was stocked with everything you need. The staff assisting is top notch. We hired Antonio from Cozumel Chef and he was the best, I highly recommend you ask for him.

Happy 18

  • 4 of 5

We went with another family to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday. It was a perfect place to stay. Location is good. Be sure to eat at the Lobster House which is close by. The house is beautiful as well as the grounds. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful (however limited english so be prepared). The hot tub was great but takes a while to warm up because it is huge! Beds were all great. Pretty well stocked with dishes but limited on pots, pans, and sharp knives. The house is as good as the pictures and maybe even better. We loved staying here!!
