Overview

Cozumel Villa Rental Photos and Description

7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, sleeps 14, Private Beachfront Villa

We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. Chango Villa was designed to create a unique and once in a lifetime vacation experience. This 7 bedroom villa is perfect for multiple uses. Whether you are a family looking for a spacious vacation home offering privacy and total luxury, a large party wanting to experience some of the best scuba diving in the world, or a group of multiple families looking for a unique vacation alternative, Chango Villa provides the best accommodations Cozumel has to offer.

About Chango Villa: Chango Villa's expansive floor plan and design offers the most unique vacation destination on the island. Three full floors and a roof top patio present multiple entertainment venues. You have the option of joining friends and family by the pool, on the beach, in the main 'great room,' or on one of the six Mexican style patios. If privacy is what you desire, Chango Villa offers plenty of options for retreat and quite seclusion.

Why Chango Villa? When designing Chango Villa, it was created in a way that would allow our guests to enjoy a family friendly environment in an absolute stunning location. Imagine waking every morning to the sound of waves, and a breathtaking view of the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Each guest room offers a beachfront balcony with a view of the ocean, private bath, and easy access to the beautiful infinity pool and the beach below.

Located in the exclusive residential area of San Francisco Beach, this brand new villa is within easy walking distance of excellent restaurants, beach bar and water sports. Because Chango Villa is located on the leeward side of the island, the water is calm and safe for young children to swim. It is also ideal for those who might like to snorkel right in front of the house, or walk for miles on the beautiful white sandy beach.

Chango Villa Location: Chango Villa is just a short boat ride away from all the famous reefs of Cozumel. Arrangements can easily be made for Divers and Snorkelers to be picked up by boat on the beach or at a nearby dock.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Brian, the owner of Chango Villa, on setting up our week-long destination wedding. From the very first phone call we were sent off into a cloud of excitement, and a blanket of security with the experience and picture Brian painted for us. We were told that he built his home to be a magnificent mansion with a private beach, infinity pool, and accessible rooftop (we ended up using it as our dance floor!). He then provided us with a wedding coordinator that has held weddings at his villa before, and we were off! We were set up with a meal plan with a private chef, named Theresa (she was fantastic!), and a 7 bed 7 bath (yes everyone get's their own bathroom) private villa on the beach where I now I had a wedding coordinator assisting me in putting together the wedding of my dreams RIGHT IN FRONT OF THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME!! I realized that we didn't have enough space for everyone and Brian said no problem.. I should contact the neighboring villa and inquire about their availability, he then proceeded to help connect me with that owner. Brian and his whole team continuously provided support and care for us throughout the entire year while we planned our wedding at his beautiful home. I can't believe how lucky we were to not only find such a beautiful scenery to say our vows, but to also be given such a remarkable experience with a very professional and kind team of experts in Hospitality. We owe everything to Chango Villa, and we definitely intend to visit again for anniversaries, family vacations, etc. The pictures do not do the property justice...it is a stunning home and was a perfect setting for our wedding!

Great place for Friends and Families

  • 5 of 5

Chango Villa was spectacular! The sunsets over the ocean night after night were just incredible. The rooftop party space allowed us to celebrate an 18th birthday. The backdoor gate spilled onto the beach, and the front driveway gave access to a local shady road for jogging. The pool space was wonderful and had both sunny and shady options. You will have a wonderful time there!

Loved Everything About Chango Villa

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Chango Villa with a group of 4 families, so we had both adults and teenagers in the house. The teens stayed on the ground floor, where they essentially had their own bedrooms, bathrooms and a kitchen, while the parents stayed on the second floor. The first floor had one bedroom, the master kitchen and a living room. We ate all of our meals outside on the covered patio in front of the pool. The experience was, in a word, exceptional.

We opted for the meal plan, and Teresa, our cook, did an outstanding job at accommodating the various special dietary needs of our group, including the need for some to eat gluten-free, others who could not eat onions, and some who were vegetarian. She navigated that challenge effortlessly, and the meals were all delicious.

Everything was spotless, inside and out. The mattress on the beds were firm (perfect for me, but some might not like a firm mattress), and the sheets were soft. I loved having the options of simply keeping the sliding doors of the bedroom open to let the sea breezes in, using a ceiling fan, or having the air conditioning on. Security is excellent. There is room for four cars to park next to the house. We used the flat roof for a birthday party, which was great. There is a house next door to Chango Villa that is very close to the property, but because of the foliage and clever tilework, you can barely see each other. Chango feels very private, even though you are aware of others being around you.

The infinity pool was also excellent. In the afternoon it is half shaded, which made a big difference for those of us who didn't want to bake in the sun too much. The pool water for our visit in mid-March was the perfect temperature- not too warm, not too cold. There are plenty of lounge chairs on the deck and on the beach in front of the house. The beach is fine-grained sand, but as soon as you go into the ocean, the bottom is pretty rough rocks, so water shoes are a must if you plan on snorkeling there.

The concierge, Jessica, was very helpful in helping us make arrangements for excursions, restaurants, etc., and Brian, the owner, came by to introduce himself at one point to see if everything was okay. It's clear that he really loves the property and tries to do right by everyone who rents it.

The only weak link for us was the fact that the WiFi system worked well everywhere except in the ground floor bedrooms, where the signal was not so good.

Would we stay at Chango Villa again? Yes, absolutely!

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

Chango Villa is simply the best! I can't recommend this home highly enough. Everything about the home is perfect for a group vacationing in Cozumel. Brian, the owner, is a pleasure to work with.

The layout of the house is perfect for a large group. There are 4 virtually identical king masters on the top floor, a king master on the middle floor and two masters (a king and a set of twins) on the beach level. There are two large living areas and two kitchens. We were a party of 14 and the house was the perfect size for us. The home is located between Carlo and Charlies Beach club and an all inclusive resort. The location is private yet close enough to walk to nearby locations. I highly recommend that you choose the optional dining plan with Chef Teresa. The food was fantastic and it was so nice not to have to worry about shopping, cooking and cleaning up. I have celiac disease and Brian and the staff even went out of their way to accommodate my need to eat gluten free. If you want to purchase groceries there are two large supermarkets within a 10 minute drive.

I recommend that you work with the house concierge, Jessica, to help plan your trip. She lives and works on the island and is a great resource for everything from birthday cakes to dining reservations to scuba diving.

The scuba diving and snorkeling in Cozumel are fantastic and the dive boats can pick you up at the dock next door.

Chango Villa is well maintained and very clean. The wifi in the house works perfectly and is a great amenity. We can't wait to return!

fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, friends and family recently spent a week at Chango Village for my daughters wedding and reception. The ceremony was held on the beach directly in front of the villa, and the reception was held on the "rooftop" of the villa. We could not have picked a finer place. Let me begin by saying that the owner is a first class guy that made our stay so much more enjoyable in so many ways. He made suggestions and arrangements for things such as the excellent cooks who prepared breakfast and dinners for a large group of people every day. The food was outstanding and I would recommend this arrangement for anybody who is staying there with a group of people. The owner also provided excellent references for scuba diving and other activities. The villa is located on a nice beach. It is spacious, clean, well maintained, and the bedrooms upstairs are comfortable with excellent view of the ocean and sunset. The villa is well located in that one can walk a short distance down the beach to restaurants and bars. It's just far enough out of town but not too far. We had a great experience there. I'd very highly recommend Chango Village to anybody, but particularly for a group of people because the place just seems to enhance the feeling of an intimate gathering. We had many enjoyable days and evenings hanging out by the pool, on the beach, and dining at the large table that is set up there. The setting for the wedding was perfect, as well as the reception. Wonderful place.

Excellent Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We returned a little about 2 months ago and wish we were back in Cozumel at Chango Villa. What an amazing vacation. Perfect location for young kids, adults, and multiple families: our scenario. Kids loved the beach club about 100 yards away, the adults loved the private beach and just sitting in the infinity pool looking into the Carribean. The authentic Mexican decor is gorgeous. You must do the chef service/meal plan..it's outstanding. We'll be back next year.

Most memorable vacation EVER! Don't hesitate!

  • 5 of 5

I really don't know where to start - this magnificent property is by far and above the best vacation rental I've ever stayed in and the best experience I've ever had in Cozumel since my first trip there in the mid-1990's. The owners of this home were very easy to deal with and very accommodating. The home is beautiful - gorgeous, truly. Authentic and classic architecture and tile and brick work, lovely bits of Mexican artwork throughout the house and the most amazing views you could ask for. The rooms are all equally comfortable and no one in your group will feel left out in choosing. In fact, one of the nicest things for us was use of the lower apartment type set up for the older kids. This would also be great if you have multiple families so everyone has their own space. The pool, beach and location are beyond amazing -you could not ask for better. You are walking distance to a dive pier where boats take you out diving or snorkeling, Carlos and Charlie's with their climb on water toys and trampoline and a short drive into downtown, yet the house is quiet and private and you'd never know those things are just a 2 minute walk away. You always feels like you are in your own little private beachfront oasis. Rest assured, this home is also very warm and welcoming - very comfy from the moment you step inside. You just feel at home here. We also used Jaime to give those of us not certified an intro to diving - incredible! I never thought I would have the nerve to try diving, but Jaime is just great about putting you at ease and I am so glad I went.for it Plus, supplying masks, fins, etc. and in home instruction - so pampering and yet not expensive. Overall, these owners clearly want you to have an incredible experience at their home and they don't disappoint. They have really thought of everything Oh, the roof deck - words cannot even begin to express.... I wish I could give this property 10 stars - we will definitely be back!
