Charming Home with Excellent Waterfront Location
I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was very clean.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
My wife and I stayed at Villa Maya with three other couples. The house was great for a multi-couple trip, as (1) four of the bedrooms have king-sized or queen-sized beds, (2) each bedroom has its own bathroom and shower, and (3) the house has amenities for large groups (e.g., large indoor and outdoor dining tables).
The best thing about this house is the location. It's a rather large waterfront property, and it's only about 1.5 miles north of town. It's also situated right next door to the Coral Princess Hotel, which turned out to be a major bonus. Throughout the day, the Coral Princess' waiters would periodically check in to see if we wanted anything, and they invited us to use their facilities (e.g., hot tub, pool, etc.). We also visited the hotel for breakfast, we rented scuba equipment at their dive shop, we cashed travelers' checks at their front desk, and it was very easy and convenient to catch taxis at the hotel. And, despite the house's close proximity to the hotel, the property was still quiet and private.
The house's waterfront is also a popular snorkeling destination. It's pretty fun to snorkel right in front of the house, and the sea life is pretty abundant there. However, in my view, the snorkeling at that location is a bit overhyped, and it's definitely *not* an adequate substitute for the incredible scuba diving on Cozumel. If you skip the scuba diving on Cozumel in favor of the snorkeling at this location, you'll really be missing out.
Another fun and interesting fact about this property is that it's apparently owned by Don Nassim Juaquin Ibarra, who's a highly respected businessman and power broker on Cozumel. Throughout the trip, we had some fun telling the locals that we were "staying at Don Nassim's house." It was a great conversation starter.
We also had a really positive experience with the on-site property managers and the property managers at At Home in Cozumel.
