Bienvinedo and welcome to Villa Rosella, formerly Casa Birdie. The villa was designed with your complete comfort in mind. Within two minutes' walking distance, you will be dipping your toes in the sand at one of Cozumel's premier beaches: San Francisco. You will enjoy the rooftop patio which boasts a grass palapa with picnic table, lounges, and hammocks. While sipping your margarita, you can view the gorgeous Cozumel sunset, boats, or parasailors. Downstairs, the great-room consists of a large living-dining room area plus kitchen with bar seating to accommodate extra guests. The trundle-day bed rolls out to comfortably sleep two adults on twin-sized mattresses. A full-sized air bed and an extra mattress are also provided for any overflow. Upstairs, the two mini-suites consist of large bedrooms with private baths and private balconies. Downstairs, the bedroom also has a private bath. We are sure that you will fall in love with Villa Rosella.
Built in 2005, this elegant villa was designed with your complete comfort in mind. Offering an exceptional amount of privacy, the house has 3 mini suites with private baths and sitting areas. The two upstairs suites also boast private balconies overlooking the pool and with ocean views. All of our furniture was custom carved by a local artisan, and the house contains a unique collection of vintage Mexican feather paintings and other fine arts and local crafts. For socializing, the villa has a large great-room and fully stocked kitchen and dining area. The rooftop patio has a large grass palapa which covers a picnic table, chairs and lounges.
We took three teenagers to Casa Birdie, and all of us loved it! It was so nice to have a home to go to after daily adventures. The home itself is cute, spacious, comfortable, and with all needed amenities. We especially loved the rooftop patio!
It's a bit out of town, so a rental car is needed. Also, it's not terribly close to the beach, and we did have some trouble getting into some of the nearby beaches (they charge you to use their beaches). But, we would definitely stay there again, as it's a great home base!
We had trouble with the refrigerator, but it was promptly fixed. We felt very well taken care of! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!
From the moment you walk into this lavish home you are just stunned. Yes the home is large, the rooms huge the decor grand but its the little things that makes this retreat a vacationers dream. The soaps, the shampoos (in all 3 bathrooms) are just so well appointed. The artist of the maid with the towels or the simple folding of the toilet paper, I realize that sounds odd but when you have that much attention to small details then you know the large items aren't even an issue. The rooms were gloriously large and soon quiet. Quiet from outside and quiet from inside. I loved walking to the beach every morning, it's only a short walk. I loved the sound of the birds at Casa Birdie. At first you don't notice it but once you stop and relax in the pool, or the cabana or the rooftop you start to realize your in their habitat. There is nothing better then making coffee (thanks for having the filters there) and then going to the pool and just relaxing. I loved the rooftop in the early morning so I could see the lovely sunrise. I could go on and on. The only thing I should say that really matters is this will be my only consideration for Cozumel. Oh....there's a closet full of toys for the kids. Who does that! I was blown away with the huge closet of beach stuff. How thoughtful. From coolers, to pool noodles, to games. I hate to say it but the cost does not equal the value. I'd pay more easily, but glad its affordable! Gail and Tony were incredible to work with. I wish I had the gift of writing but this is a gem of a property.
We traveled to Cozumel with our two small children and friends Jan 27th to Feb 3. We had a fantastic time, the house was very comfortable with plenty of space. The roof top terrace and pool were great, a 2 min walk to beach and beach restaurants.
We planned on renting a car but didn't realize the cost of insurance (45 a day) on top of rental charge so we decided against it and just cabbed it everywhere, cabs were very easy to get as they hang out at beach club right next door.
The Mega grocery store has everything you need and surprisingly awesome prices.
We can't wait to go back again next year, thanks Gail and Tony for being wonderful hosts.
Our extended family of 10 people (five adults and five children) stayed at Casa Birdie over New Years, and had a terrific time. The house worked out very well for us. We had two couples, one with two children (ages 9 & 12) and one with three children (twin 4 year olds and a 7 year old), and the grandmother of the family. The fact that Casa Birdie has three separate and equal-sized suites was key, as each large bedroom had its own private bathroom (so each family unit had its own space). The pool in the private backyard area was perfect for our children, and they played in it often while the adults sat in lounge chairs "supervising". (Were we just adults, we would probably not have used the pool much as it's quite small -- which is ideal for families with children!) We rented two cars near the airport, and Casa Birdie was conveniently located south of town. We were glad to have cars because we did not like the "Beach Clubs" right near Casa Birdie, as they are super crowded, but found it very easy to drive to much nicer beaches -- such as our favorite, Playa Palancar, as well as the Punta Sur Park (paid entrance, but worth it!). As noted in other reviews, however, it is easy to walk right to the beach from Casa Birdie, so this is a good option when you don't want to drive. The house has good air conditioning, a TV with DVD player, and a CD player. I appreciated the fact that there was a large selection of good films to watch (both for kids and adults), as well as a good selection of music on CD to listen to while hanging out (Bob Marley being my favorite, but again there was a wide selection). Also, the house has a LOT of space, especially taking into account the roof patio and the back yard space. Finally, Tony Rome was great! We did have a few minor issues arise during our stay, such as the gas (needed to cook) running out and the washing machine not working properly, but Tony promptly took care of these problems for us. Overall, our family was very happy to stay at Casa Birdie and I would recommend it to anyone else with similar needs (large family, wanting multiple equivalent-sized suites, etc.).
Family of 5 just returned from Cozumel with a weeklong stay at Casa Birdie. House was in a great location as we had a rental car. The house had all the amenities we needed for out stay. House and pool were in great condition and we did not have any issues while staying there. There are several beach clubs next to Casa Birdie which we went too during our stay. We walked in and told them we were from the villa next door and they let us right in. These beach clubs are great for any activities that you may want to do. We parasailed, jet skied and snorkeled. The on island manager is Tony Rome who was very helpful and checked on us throughout our stay to see if we needed anything. Tony Rome also has a restaurant near the plaza at R. Salas and 5 Ave which we had a fantastic dinner while in Cozumel.
We just arrive home and we want to thank you for your wonderful villa. The house was perfect and make our trip a relaxing oasis . Our family have a very good stay with all the features of your villa from the roof to the pool. The diving at 45 feet deep was the outstanding activity with my three sons. The villa is very nice and charming and Tony was realy on the job to make everything perfect for us. The villa is at the best spot on the island of Cozumel ....near everything!
Special thank to Tony for his efforts and kindness.
One of the things that makes Villa Rosella special is it's location. Being next to Paradise Beach and San Fransisco Beach means that all of the water sports, beach and diving activities are at your doorstep. There are several restaurants within walking distance. Yet you still have all of the tropical beauty of being located out of town. Taxis are always nearby at the beaches. For divers, all of the favorite dive sites are very close by. Parasailing, jet skis, and boats are all available at the beach sites. It;s perfect!! Dive boats will pick up divers a nearby San Francisco Beach Dock--a 3-4min. walk.
Other Activities: dive rinse sink and outdoor shower
