Overview

Cozumel Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Open continuously since 1998, IslaMar Villas is one of the few remaining owner/operated vacation rental facilities on the island. Sure there are alot of hotels to choose from but how many of those hotel owners or managers will know your name or remember you next time you visit?

Owner/operator Sherri Davis would like to thank all of her clients for giving her the opportunity to celebrate 16 years of operation! Newly remodeled in 2013, IslaMar Villas now has more garden space, refurbished pool/spa, sidewalk and porch resurfacing in the commons area, all new flooring, granite kitchen counters and a completely redesigned bathroom with all new fixtures.

Offering quality and value, this IslaMar Vacation Villa provides the perfect get-away for you, your family and friends to enjoy tropical island living at its best! Sherri and her staff are always nearby to personally assist guests with their vacation needs.

Your IslaMar Villa will be situated around a common garden, pool, waterfall & jacuzzi area. The entire complex is surrounded by a ten foot privacy/security wall. IslaMar is located in a regular neighborhood (out of the tourist zone), just a ten minute walk from Downtown or beach areas. Just around the corner is a neighborhood grocery as well as a family play park.

Nestled in the heart of Mid-Town Cozumel, IslaMar is popular among those who travel extensively or visit the island frequently and are looking for a more authentic cultural island experience rather than the glitz (and expense) of the tourist zone. Let IslaMar Villas become your island get-away... it's NOT just another place to stay but a perfect way to transition from 'hotel staying' to 'island living'!

Small businesses in Cozumel value their customers and IslaMar is no exception as one of our staff will be waiting just for you on the day of your arrival to ensure you get settled in for a wonderful vacation stay. Contact Sherri now and start planning your next Cozumel vacation to come and enjoy our fresh new look!

About Sherri Davis

Hi Ya'll!

I'm Sherri Davis and I have lived on the island for over 20 years.

I spent my early years in Cozumel working as a business consultant and PADI Dive Instructor.

Currently I own/operate several island endeavors including:

IslaMar Vacation Villas

Palmar Estate Beach Club

Cozumel Volunteer Connection

Patas & Alas Butterfly Sanctuary and

the Cozumel Insider web domain

I enjoy scuba diving, traveling the interior of Mexico, creative writing, discovering nature and supporting local conservation efforts such as the Cozumel Marine Turtle Salvation Program, reef monitoring and beach clean up events here on the island.

Cozumel is a special place that will capture your heart ~ if you let it! I would love to show you the Cozumel I know. A relaxed place with neighborly people where even those on the tightest of vacation budgets can enjoy themselves. Let me and my staff show you Cozumel from our side of town ~ where the locals live and eat and play away from the expensive tourist zone. It would be my pleasure to have you here with me at IslaMar for your vacation!

I am a native of Texas and hold a BBA and MBA from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. However, I do speak Canadian and Minnesotan really well (eh?!)! ;-)

Sherri Davis purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Sherri Davis chose Cozumel

On my first visit to Cozumel years ago, I simply could not believe that a person could leave DFW, fly for a bit over 2 hours and end up in a place as remote and primative as Cozumel was back then. There is something about the island that simply draws visitors into its charm.

As a scuba diver, I found heaven on earth in the beauty of the reefs that surround Cozumel and I simply never wanted to leave! Having my vacation villas gives me the chance to share the Cozumel I know with others who enjoy island living type vacations!

What makes this apartment unique

One of the main reasons folks come back to IslaMar year after year is because it is one of the few remaining owner operated vacation rental facilities in Cozumel. Many Cozumel vacation rentals are handled nowadays by property management companies (no owner on site).

My staff and I are on site daily and try to ensure that guests have the best possible vacation experience while here on the island. We assist guests with everything from coordinating car rentals and excursions to sharing information about less expensive 'locals' places to hang out. Our goal at IslaMar is to make a 'regular' out of you!

Another thing that sets IslaMar apart from many other properties in Cozumel, is that we are actually operating a legitimate business within the community complete with all applicable business licenses, safety inspections and legitimate legal structure to provide property rentals in Cozumel. As members of the Cozumel island community, we at IslaMar feel an obligation to comply with local regulations and help support road and infrastructure development rather that ignore or evade these regulations and fees as so many vacation rentals do on the island. As they say 'It takes a village.' and we must all CONTRIBUTE (by paying licenses/fees,etc.) to improve our community.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A quiet week at IslaMar. Tim dove most days and Karin recovered from her asthma. Lovely meals at San Carolos, Chilagos, The Pig Sandwich Place and El Moro. Sun, warmth, relaxation and recharging as we now head home to resume our lives.

Visiting in Cozumel, local style.

  • 4 of 5
Found IslaMar on VRBO while looking for a place to stay for 3 weeks. Was very pleased to find the property was just as advertised. The staff was waiting for me on my arrival at the front door. The pool area is incredible and I enjoyed it very much during my time there. Hummingbirds frequently seen, and there is a local bakery close by, so the smell of fretted baked bread was often tempting me while at the pool. Sherri gave me the one bedroom condo upstairs and it again, was just as advertised. I found everything I needed and including the small touches such as the hammock. The apartment was immaculate! If there was anything missing, Zuri was there to help.

This is living "local style" which is what I was looking for, away from the tourist areas. I spent time walking about the area and did not have any problems whatsoever. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the main tourist area. Taxis, if needed, are plentiful, affordable, and reliable. There are small, local places to eat close to IslaMar where the food is very good, and affordable. Sherri has a helpful guide book detailing all the good restaurants broken down by location and price.

I was very pleased with the choice of Cozumel and IslaMar. Sherri, I will be back !

Perfect for Us

  • 5 of 5
For Bonnie and I it was the place , we have been coming to Cozumel since 1989 off and on. Lots of changes over the years but Sheri's place works perfect , walk to town or hang out at the villa you can't go wrong. Everyone is first class and always greets you with a big smoke thanks for having us. See you in the fall or early in the new year if all goes well at our end.
Cheers P & B

a small slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Isla Mar was great. Sherri and staff were at our disposal. We rented a car and had no issues with parking. the room was great. Staying at Isla Mar gave us an opportunity to interact with the locals, eat and shop at local establishments which is something we would not have done if we stayed at a resort. make sure to visit Pescador Carlos (around the corner) for some of the greatest, freshest fish you've ever had. Cozumel is lovely but staying at Isla Mar was a slice of heaven. I cant wait to visit again. thank you Sherri and Mauricio for a lovely home away from home.

Awesome 2 weeks

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Sherrie and staff for making our two week stay unforgettable. Your villa was exactly what we were looking for, away from the touristy stuff, yet within walking distance to all the restaurants, shops and piers. We enjoyed shopping in local markets, and discovering the Island on foot, and our rented scooter. Thank you for all your help before and during our stay with loads of information and recommendations for site seeing and restaurants. Having been only to All inclusive in Mexico, this was treat, no line ups for food, no saving loungers, etc,not to mention time share hassles...Thank you all again.

great place

  • 5 of 5
i find my thought drifting back to my visit to Cozumel and my stay at Isla Mar. it is a wonderful place. Sherri and the staff will take care of all your needs.Zuri is a delight. the place was clean and tidy. we booked the studio apt and enjoyed it. Sherri invited us to move into a 1BR. She is the major reason Isla mar is a great place. she's packed with info and shares it freely. be sure to visit Pescaderia San Carlos (around the corner)where Diego will prepare the greatest fish you've eaten. there is plenty of street parking if you choose to rent a car or scooter.I can not be happier about choosing Isla Mar for our 2 week visit. im planing my return.already. thank you Sherri,Mauricio,and Zuri for making our stay great, smooth and a pure delight. Ps. im now in NYC with sub zero temps, and the flu. oh how i miss Cozumel and Isla Mar.

Wonderful Vacation Villas

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful little set of vacation suites, friendly and helpful staff, and a welcoming pool make this accommodation worth the walk from the "tourist" zone, (in fact, it's very nice to get away from all that). Very clean, with all the amenities one would want. Close to lots of authentic and inexpensive restaurants. I would happily recommend IslaMar to other travellers.
