Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we found Casa Zama and booked it for our 8 day stay on Isla. It was a graduation gift for our daughter, her husband and our son. When we walked through the front gate all of us were completely blown away. The house is absolutely stunning. The architecture is modern, but still retains a wonderful Mexican feel. We felt like Hollywood royalty every time we got home. We spent most of our time on the back patio by the pool, watching the sea turtles play in the waves. Sunrises are especially beautiful and worth getting up for. What a surprise to find that breakfast was included every day! We opted to have a Mexican breakfast cooked by Milli and Karina and they were FANTASTIC!! We looked forward to it each morning. The house is in an ideal location...far enough away from the downtown area that it is quiet, but a great golf cart ride to get to restaurants. Ron and Mel were wonderful hosts and checked on us periodically to see if we needed anything. I would love to rent Casa Zama in the future with a few's a perfect place for families and I think it would be great with friends too.

Loved it!!! Our family will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6, kids aged 17, 15 and twin 11 years old traveled to Isla Mujeres for the first time. We had the good fortune of staying at Casa Zama for 4 nights before leaving for an all-inclusive in Playa Mujueres. Our property conceirge arranged all our transportation and the delivery of our golf carts to the property. We were met at Casa Zama by Greg who showed us the property and then lead the way on his moped, as we followed in our golf carts to escort us to the grocery store to ensure we found it. In the morning, we were pleasantly greeted by Milly and her fabulous breakfast. She prepared the table, cooked, served us and cleaned everything up. LOVED IT!!! The house and the views were spectacular. The two rooms upstairs are huge and the beds very comfortable. The house was very clean! The downstairs bunk room is tiny and the air conditioner above the top bunk was noisy. However, for my 15 year old and 11 year old boys it was fine and they were happy to have their own space. The air conditioning in the bedrooms is amazing. The living space is un-air conditioned but has wall of windows that completely open up creating nice cross breeze. It's a short walk to the beach area where we snorkeled, watched iguanas, took photos and enjoyed the beautiful, peaceful beaches. We swam in the pool daily and the kids hung out in the hammocks. It was sublime. When we moved to an all-inclusive on Playa Mujeres and was miserable there, we called Ron, to see if we could come back "home" to Casa Zama. Unfortunately for us, there were other guests. We highly recommend Casa Zama and the services Ron has set up to make your vacation perfect.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property! Two couple vacation was an amazing experience. The owner was extremely helpful with setting up golf cart rental and giving great recommendations on food and activities. The house was immaculate and the cooks made delicious authentic Mexican breakfasts! You could not find a more impressive house or all around vacation spot. Views are incredible from every window/room. Very comfortable and fully furnished with everything you could need. Highly recommended- We will be back!

Great location and relaxing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of my favorite properties I've stayed at through VRBO/Home Away. The owners answered my questions quickly before the trip and it was really easy to contact them while in Isla Mujeres if any problems or questions came up. The breakfast was very good and made the mornings easy. Ron made some suggestions of places to eat and the ones we tried were very good. The golf cart they have to rent is really fast and easy to use to get around the island. I would highly recommend renting it for your stay. The hot tub was nice to sit in at night and watch the stars with a Pina Colada in your hand! Overall, great experience and I would love to bring my kids here next time around.

Anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5

Casa Zama was excellent. It was easy to make the arrangements, they met us at the house upon arrival and showed us around. The house is just amazing and the view is just as incredible. The cook "Millie" made us breakfast each day and off we went. It was very nice to come back in the hot part of the afternoon and swim in the shaded pool, while deciding which bar to watch the sunset at. Everything about this place is great and we will definitely go back next year.

Casa Zamazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my family with a stay at Casa Zama. They knew where we were going but I did not let them know where we were staying. When we arrived at the house it did my heart good (and probably Ron's too) to see their reaction. I was indeed a hero - to quote my daughter "Dad you hit it out of the park!"

I hate to stay at the same place but I would be so afraid of disappointment when comparing any other house to Casa Zama. This place is amazing in a perfect location. The indoor/outdoor living makes every second of your vacation count.

Ron, the owner is a super nice guy. Good recommendations, checks to see if everything is going well and arranged taxis for us for early morning flight.

Millie and her daughter are unimposing and dished out excellent breakfasts as well as cleaned each morning.

To be fair, there could have been some snags for some - the TV's in the bedrooms were not working due to some satellite part Ron was waiting on. We could have cared less; why would you watch TV with the views the house offered. We never watched the TV in the main room. The water feature in the pool is not working, A little disappointing but a small issue when compared to all of the amenities at Casa Zama.

For us the only bad thing about Casa Zama is that you did not want to leave to do anything else. We absolutely loved our stay and you will too!
