December Get-Away

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Upon arrival we were overly impressed with the views, the house, and the hospitality of Ron (the owner). The pictures really don't do it justice and we all agreed on that. We vacationed there for one week with another couple and really enjoyed it. The pool was a little chilly for December, but that is to be expected and we got in anyways after a few drinks. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars in mainly because of the maid service. They failed to tidy our rooms up for about three days until I mentioned this to Ron. He immediately came over and addressed the problem and it was fixed, minus the part where they never brought up clean towels (minor but annoying). Other than that they made some good breakfasts, but they don't hold a candle to the other restaurants on the island (Mango, Barlito, Rolandi's on sunday) so plan ahead and venture out for breakfast. Maybe they could make you sandwiches for later or pico or guacamole for a snack later. This would be a great option. Nonetheless, this is a great option and we will return someday. We really did love Casa Zama.

The moment I walked into Casa Zama my shoulders dropped and the stress of reality vanished. The sight of the ocean beyond the pool, the sound of the ocean and the water fountain, the cool breeze and the soft music playing on the surround sound is enough to bring a tear to anyone’s eye. Pictures can not do this amazing home justice; you have to be there to understand that this is the closest you can get to heaven.

Upon arrival Ron (owner and manager) greeted us at the home and gave us a tour of the house with complete instructions. He also took about 45 min to show us on the map all the best restaurants, activities and must see sites. Ron was always prompt and helpful; he and Melanie even helped me with my surprise marriage proposal.

I made a special surprise marriage proposal to my girlfriend on the cliff overlooking the ocean just behind the house. Ron and Melanie went out of their way to make sure all the events went as scheduled and helped keep the proposal a surprise until the last second. Ron is also a professional photographer and was able to capture the event with spectacular photos. He charged me a very fair price for his work; he played along with the surprise and even had to sneak around a bit. Ron, words can not express my appreciation for all your help.

I have traveled much in my life and have even been to Mexico several times (Cancun/Cozumel and more) but this was the best trip I ever had. What put this trip in the number one spot was Casa Zama. I never want to stay in a hotel again. The privacy and the personal service can not compare to this experience. You sacrifice none of the amenities of home: Wifi, Pool speakers for music, Washer/dryer, Dish Network, and flat panel TVs in bedrooms.

If you’re going to Isla Mujeres you have to stay at CASA ZAMA

Now I’m working on getting us back there for the honeymoon.

Ron and Melanie thanks for the memories that will last a lifetime.
Owner's Response: Dear Eric,
Thank you so much for the kind words, guests like you bring so much joy to us and it was truly our pleasure to help create the perfect proposal and vacation for you and your lovely fiancé. We look forward to seeing you again and it warms our hearts that we could assist in creating lasting memories for your family and friends!

Warmest Regards,
Mel and Ron Herrman

Ever find one of those places you just know you'll visit again? Welcome to Casa Zama. If you're looking for a Dwell Magazine-worthy home in a setting that is truly incomparable, look no further. From our initial contact with Mel, to a wonderful welcome by Ron, complete with restaurant recommendations and a list of do-not-miss destinations, we couldn't have been more pleased with these accommodations and the hospitality of this wonderful couple.

Our family of five spent a week in Casa Zama. The house is a highly functional architectural work of art, with numerous spaces that will appeal to a wide range of personalities. Yes, we were there with a couple of teenagers. Load up on groceries from Chedraui and you're set for lunches and dinners - if you don't want to venture out.

Breakfasts are prepared for you each day. Make sure to order the "comida típica." You will not be disappointed. There's a large gas grill at the house. Ron will coach you on where to buy the best fish. The pool and palapa are beautiful. Walk just a little ways and you're on your own secluded beach. Don't forget your snorkel gear.

Speaking of Ron, he's the MacDaddy of Isla Mujeres. Casa Zama is wired...bring you iPods. Yes, there are speakers poolside. And about that iPod we accidentally left behind? It's being mailed to us next week. See "wonderful couple" comment above. ;-)

We've vacationed in Costa Rica, BVI, all over Florida, and in numerous Mexican resort areas. This one is it. If you truly want to get away and make memories that will last you a lifetime, check in with Melanie and Ron and spend some time in Casa Zama. But please, not during the first week in April.
Owner's Response: Thank you Michael and family. It was such a pleasure to share Casa Zama with such a delightful family, and we welcome you back with open arms. Such a great couple and the sweetest, well mannered kids! It is guests like you that bring us so much joy in sharing our home and our beautiful island! We look so forward to your return! Best Regards from Ron, Mel, the staff, and Jack the dog.

We visited the week of Valentine's Day. Ron started our trip by making me a hero and having an incredible flower arrangement delivered to the house while my wife was in the shower. Ron and Mel
were very helpful and answered all of our questions and pointed out on a map things we should do
and see. Millie spoiled us everyday with great food and Gabby took care of our golf cart and seemed
to just appear when you might need something. Always felt safe and secure at the house. The setting could not be more picturesque. Would love to return with another couple. It's almost too much to enjoy with just two people. Don't miss the seafood linguini at Da Luisa.
