About the property

5 bedroom, 8 bath ocean front villa located in the south point of Isla Mujeres.

Villa de la Vida - This stunning, award-winning villa was designed by Mexico’s renowned architect Javier Munoz Menendez, whose personality and imagination created a masterpiece, a place that never ceases to elevate you. This engineering marvel is column-free with dramatic, cantilevered ceilings and sliding panes that disappear to fully open up the living area, blurring the boundaries between inside and out, maximizing majestic views, natural light and cool breezes blowing in off the water. Clean, graphic lines and high ceilings amplify the sense of openness.

Great architecture improves your life and this extraordinary villa gives aesthetic pleasure. Just a few of the options; have a large party or gathering on the top deck, spend hours lounging around the infinity pool, or relax in the lush, colourful garden.

Delight in the show at night, starting with spectacular sunsets that will take your breath away. Once the sun sets, enjoy the lights of Cancun, glistening across the water like a diamond necklace; the only sounds you will hear are from the cicadas and the birds.

Completed in 2006, this villa is completely secure and private with gates and high walls.

Amenities include: Six bedrooms – 4 King beds, 1 Queen bed, 2 Twin beds. 8 bathrooms. The large private Master Bedroom in lower level has double sinks and oversized rain showers; the 4 ensuite bedrooms in the upper level each have an open concept shower, a balcony area with chairs, and spectacular views of the blue Caribbean ocean. 3 powder bathrooms, one outside for pool guests.

Interior – 4500 sq.Ft. Terraces – 3000 sq. Ft. Maximum 10 guests.

Gourmet kitchen/dining and living area is completely open with mesmerizing views of the ocean. Large upper terrace with designer couches and chairs is an ideal setting for wedding receptions, corporate retreats, special events or just relaxing and luxuriating; an expansive sail (from Germany) makes a real statement. Lower garden terrace has comfortable sitting area; perfect for your morning coffee.

Infinity pool has sitting/lounging ledge around the perimeter (ideal for small children) and outdoor shower.

Home theatre with 60” led T.V. and surround-sound, six leather recliners; popcorn included. Two designer kitchens with high-end appliances (Sub-Zero fridges, Wolf cooktop, Miele dishwasher).

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from Villa de la Vida and wow, what a place! Hidden off the main road, this villa was located right on the ocean in front of the Caribbean, Cancun skyline and was right off the pages of Architectural Digest. Modern, high end amenities and incredible kitchen to snack and gather for drinks and breakfast, luxury at every turn. The staff was all smiles and served a continental breakfast and cleaned each day, such a treat. Thank you to the staff and the manager Ron for getting us maps to all the best restaurants, and answering all the questions we had, as well as scheduling amazing in house massages with Ivonne! We are ready to go back.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a wonderful vacation in Isla Mujeres and I can honestly say this was the best vacation rental experience we've ever had. Villa de la Vida is hidden gem located on the ocean overlooking beautiful Caribbean water where we swam, snorkeled and watched the sunset from the gorgeous villa. The villa itself was incredible, and Ron the manager was such a great source of knowledge and expertise from the moment we arrived. He and his Mexican partner Gabby, as well as Lucy and Georgina took such great care of us the entire time. The ladies made breakfast and cleaned each morning while Rob helped arrange massages and yoga. We went snorkeling with Gabby and saw the most beautiful reef fish and coral. The house itself is incredible- the staff was an added bonus. Thank you for making this vacation with my family truly unforgettable.

Modern and Luxurious

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Villa de la Vida in Isla Mujeres in August and enjoyed this beautiful villa so much. The architectural details and the designer kitchen made cooking and visiting so much fun, and we loved looking across the water to see the sunset and Cancun skyline. The bedrooms all have huge walk in showers and simple elegant details. So comfortable. The gardens in front of the dining room and by the pool were immaculate, colorful and picturesque. There is a staff of two nice ladies that prepared fruit, coffee and pastries each morning and did a great job cleaning. I hope to return soon. It was pure island luxury.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to be part of a retreat at this property in June. This villa has the most modern and sleek amenities and fantastic service as well. Right out of Architectural Digest, the sleek kitchen, gorgeous finishes and awesome service provided by staff Gorgina and Lucy (sweet ladies who made continental breakfast and cleaned) made for a great getaway. We could walk down the stairs from the pool villa to swim in the ocean with a view of the Cancun skyline that sparkles at night.
