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.
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.
