Villa Messina is a brand-new luxury privately-owned rental property at Isla 33 Resort & Villas. Located on the second level and connected with a privately accessed breezeway, the property sleeps up to 8 guests, perfect for a romantic getaway, a family vacation, or your bridal party. Daily maid service is included, so you need do nothing but relax. Enjoy water views from every room – the living rooms and master suites look out on the stunning Caribbean ocean, and the kitchen and guest bedrooms feature views of the Ocean and Cancun, the Salina Grande Lagoon and a beautiful new park. Only 10 minutes from the great restaurants and fun of Hidalgo Street and Playa Norte, Villa Messina is ideally situated in the center of Isla Mujeres, where you’ll enjoy tranquility, beautiful sea breezes and unparalleled ocean views. The property is decorated with furnishings hand-made by local artisans, and paintings by Isla artist Gaby Tosello grace the walls.
The Villa includes two spacious living rooms with open floor plans. Your retreat is keyless - simply punch in your code to gain access, so you don’t have to worry about losing your key at the beach! As you enter the large living areas, the first thing you notice is the spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea just beyond the large balcony. Thanks to the wall-spanning pocket doors, the view is completely unobstructed, and you’ll enjoy the beautiful sea breeze. Across the living rooms are the entrances to the master suites with the same gorgeous views, with pocket doors and a spacious balcony. The master bedrooms feature hand-made domed brick ceilings – a traditional architectural detail in the Yucatan region. The beautiful Jacuzzi areas share the ocean view, and the tub is surrounded with hand-cut tikul tile. The ensuite bath connects the Jacuzzi to the shower and toilet areas, flanked by a large closet area.
To the right of the living rooms, the dining rooms adjoin granite breakfast bars and very large kitchens with granite countertops with stainless steel appliances. The wide kitchen windows offer views of a beautiful new park, a salt lake in the center of the island, and as well as the ocean and the Cancun skyline. The guest bedrooms are just off the dining room - large rooms with ample closets and sliding glass doors, with the same stunning view and a balcony. The second baths are just outside the bedrooms and feature large walk-in showers and stone sinks.
We are both college professors – Bob teaches business and economics, and Alice teaches Russian and Spanish. Our full-time home is in the Philadelphia area. We discovered Isla Mujeres in 2009, while searching for the perfect place for our destination wedding. In August 2010 we were married on the beach, just a little way down from the condo.
Alice Speh & Bob Pierson purchased this condo in 2012
Isla Mujeres is hardly the first Caribbean island we’ve visited, but after years of traveling, it’s definitely our favorite. It’s a very special, very inviting place, where we’ve made many friends and fallen in love with the community. Isla Mujeres is relaxed, beautiful, and completely authentic: small enough to offer a completely personal experience, but large enough to offer every convenience and activities for every taste.
Villa Messina accommodates from 1 - 8 guests and is open and spacious. The retreat is decorated with furnishings and paintings created by local artisans. But the decor can't compare to the stunning turquoise water views we enjoy from all sides.
We were SO impressed by the spacious size and beauty of the Villas. The turquoise ocean views are absolutely breathtaking and visible from the living areas, kitchens, master bedrooms and master baths. By opening the pocket doors in both the living areas and master bedrooms, we took full advantage of the sights and calming ocean sounds; that was such a great feature. I've never stayed at a place where you can watch the sunrise over the ocean and later, see it set over the sea. It was so memorable. It's clear that the owners have an eye for detail and design by the furnishings in each room and the high quality construction materials. We loved the beautiful tiled floors throughout and details around the main doors and jacuzzi tubs. The brick ceilings in the master bedrooms are so unique and authentic! The kitchens are huge, with beautiful granite counter tops, and include all the amenities you come to expect from home (oven, stove, microwave, fridge - all stainless steel). The colorful artwork and dining room furniture give a local flare (wish I could pull of that table at home!). The beds and pillows were very comfortable and there is plenty of storage in the closets. We enjoyed winding down in front of the large TVs included in each living area, with large, cozy couches or sitting out on the balconies with a nice drink. We liked how the Villas are a stone's throw from the bustle of the downtown area; just close enough but tranquil. Playa Norte is the most beautiful beach we've ever seen (and we are big beach fans :). There are so many places to eat on the island and they are all so wonderful and diverse. The owners gave us great recommendations on their favorite spots. We had so much fun traveling around the island in the rented golf cart. Just thinking about the villas, the restaurants, gorgeous beaches and friendly people on Isla Mujeres makes me want to go back now! It was so hard to leave! We highly recommend staying in the villas and could not have asked for a better vacation or rental property. We can't wait to go back!
In Isla Mujeres, you'll indulge your love of the beach. The “Find Your Beach” Corona commercials – where the couple sits on a gorgeous beach enjoying the beer – are filmed right on Isla, on North Beach. Isla Mujeres was among Jacques Cousteau’s favorite diving destinations, and you can enjoy excellent snorkeling, scuba diving, sport fishing, boating -- the entire range of water sports. June through August is Whale Shark season on Isla. Don't miss the opportunity to swim with these “gentle giants of the deep.” Actually they’re the world’s largest fish (between 25-40 feet long), and it’s possible to swim with between 30 and 40 of them at a time. It’s a bucket list experience. Villa Anna & Villa Messina are conveniently located beachfront, approximately mid-island. It's only a 5 minute golf cart or taxi ride to town, where Hidalgo Street offers shopping and dining of all descriptions, and you can sunbathe on North Beach or charter a fishing boat for the day. Rent bikes or mopeds and tour the island, stopping at fun local bars and cafes for refreshment.
There are over 100 restaurants on the island, and Isla attracts people from all over the world – dinner conversation often switches between English, Spanish, French, Italian, German – it’s quite a spectacle, but lots of fun. Isla Mujeres is a naturally friendly place.
