About the property

7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, sleeps 14, Private Beachfront Villa

We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. Chango Villa was designed to create a unique and once in a lifetime vacation experience. This 7 bedroom villa is perfect for multiple uses. Whether you are a family looking for a spacious vacation home offering privacy and total luxury, a large party wanting to experience some of the best scuba diving in the world, or a group of multiple families looking for a unique vacation alternative, Chango Villa provides the best accommodations Cozumel has to offer.

About Chango Villa: Chango Villa's expansive floor plan and design offers the most unique vacation destination on the island. Three full floors and a roof top patio present multiple entertainment venues. You have the option of joining friends and family by the pool, on the beach, in the main 'great room,' or on one of the six Mexican style patios. If privacy is what you desire, Chango Villa offers plenty of options for retreat and quite seclusion.

Why Chango Villa? When designing Chango Villa, it was created in a way that would allow our guests to enjoy a family friendly environment in an absolute stunning location. Imagine waking every morning to the sound of waves, and a breathtaking view of the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Each guest room offers a beachfront balcony with a view of the ocean, private bath, and easy access to the beautiful infinity pool and the beach below.

Located in the exclusive residential area of San Francisco Beach, this brand new villa is within easy walking distance of excellent restaurants, beach bar and water sports. Because Chango Villa is located on the leeward side of the island, the water is calm and safe for young children to swim. It is also ideal for those who might like to snorkel right in front of the house, or walk for miles on the beautiful white sandy beach.

Chango Villa Location: Chango Villa is just a short boat ride away from all the famous reefs of Cozumel. Arrangements can easily be made for Divers and Snorkelers to be picked up by boat on the beach or at a nearby dock.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Brian, the owner of Chango Villa, on setting up our week-long destination wedding. From the very first phone call we were sent off into a cloud of excitement, and a blanket of security with the experience and picture Brian painted for us. We were told that he built his home to be a magnificent mansion with a private beach, infinity pool, and accessible rooftop (we ended up using it as our dance floor!). He then provided us with a wedding coordinator that has held weddings at his villa before, and we were off! We were set up with a meal plan with a private chef, named Theresa (she was fantastic!), and a 7 bed 7 bath (yes everyone get's their own bathroom) private villa on the beach where I now I had a wedding coordinator assisting me in putting together the wedding of my dreams RIGHT IN FRONT OF THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME!! I realized that we didn't have enough space for everyone and Brian said no problem.. I should contact the neighboring villa and inquire about their availability, he then proceeded to help connect me with that owner. Brian and his whole team continuously provided support and care for us throughout the entire year while we planned our wedding at his beautiful home. I can't believe how lucky we were to not only find such a beautiful scenery to say our vows, but to also be given such a remarkable experience with a very professional and kind team of experts in Hospitality. We owe everything to Chango Villa, and we definitely intend to visit again for anniversaries, family vacations, etc. The pictures do not do the property is a stunning home and was a perfect setting for our wedding!

Family fun

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely wonderful. It's perfect for a large group. It was beautiful and kept clean everyday by the cutest family caretakers ever (Albino, Lara, Manuel and even little Andriana). They were wonderful!!! Jessica, the concierge kept in constant contact with us before the trip and answered all our questions. As an fyi, the cots are very uncomfortable. We only requested them because we had kids that didn't want to share a bed. The other thing to remember is bring your water shoes. The water off this beach is rocky but it lent itself to lots of snorkeling just steps from the house. Carlos and Charlie's is practically next door if you want to walk over for drinks or food. We had a great time. If I were to come back to Cozumel it would because of this house.

Trust all the 5 Star reviews

  • 5 of 5

This place is incredible. Never been to cozumel and really enjoyed its laid back vibe. Theres not much more I can say about this house that hasn't already been said other than everyone kept commenting how new and well kept it was. The views, pool, beach can't be beat. All the staff was friendly and accommodating. Gaby is a wonderful cook and a kind person who went out of her way to accommodate all of our dietary restrictions. Would highly recommend her services. We did several excursions and all were terrific but the highlight of the trip was snorkeling with JJ. He was amazing and kind and really watched out for everyone especially those of us who needed some guidance. We stayed for a week and it wasn't long enough! I wish we had more time to just relax by the beautiful pool or swim with the eagle rays right off your back steps. Bring water shoes if you plan on swimming and paddle board rentals at Carlos and Charlies are $10 a day if you tell them you're staying at Chango Villa otherwise they'll try to charge you the "cruise" price of $20/ hr. Absolutely nothing negative to say, just go!

Extraordinary Chango Villa

  • 5 of 5

Whether you are a connoisseur of world travel, or looking for a first time family/friends adventure in a tropical paradise -- do not miss out on Chango Villa, in Cozumel, Mexico! If you've done your homework prior to reading this review you would have discovered many 5-star reviews by a variety of Chango guests. Believe them - they are all 100% accurate! The accommodations are ideal for family vacations or a multiple friends/couples get-away, offering every possible amenity as well as ideal privacy. Enjoy the delectable meal service for a true destination vacation experience that offers native cuisine, prepared and served onsite. Bask in the sunshine of the spacious back courtyard; play in the infinity pool; and relish the sensation of sand between your toes on the private beach. The colors of Chango Villa are nothing less than awe-inspiring! From the lovely décor of the villa itself to the incredible scenic views, the vibrant colors, along with gentle breezes whispering through the fronds of the surrounding palm trees will soothe, relax and rejuvenate. From sunrise, to sunset, to moon glow - you will revel in all that is Chango Villa. Your comfort and pleasure is their goal - and they do it well. The daily caretakers of the villa are phenomenal - truly the nicest, most courteous people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They are so non-intrusive you'll barely realize they're there, yet they will make you feel very well cared for during your stay. This specific vacation was for the purpose of bringing all of my children & grandchildren together for a destination family vacation. My kids/grandkids ranged in ages from 5 years to 40+ (a group of 11 total) and each one of us had an absolute blast in a truly lovely, very secure setting! The villa is absolutely ideal for a group of this size. In summary, I am an average middle class person who has experienced travel to various destinations around the world and have enjoyed numerous 5-star hotels, or exotic resorts. No one does it better Chango Villa -- no one!! And no one is more pleasurable to work with, or more service oriented than Brian, the owner! Don't miss this experience, people!! It is everything I have described and more. A part of my heart will always remain at Chango Villa! It would be my extreme pleasure to one day return. Thank you Chango for an incredible vacation experience!

This is one of the most amazing if not the most amazing vacations spots I have ever been with my family. The home is straight out of a magazine from the design of the home to the views it provides. This is one place you must visit! From the time you pull up to the house it defines the meaning of paradise. Not only is the home incredible buts it located in a way that you can see much of the island and enjoy all that it has to offer. From snorkeling to dinning, sight seeing and more this was one of the best family vacations ever

My family and i have stayed at Chango Villa over many holiday breaks and every year we are itching to return! Chango Villa has the perfect location with it being only 20 minutes away from downtown and only 25 minutes away from the other side of the island. The house is maintained very well and the maintenance team is incredibly helpful and friendly. The Villa is also beautifully decorated making you really feel like your home.Our family is a family of 13 normally and of all different ages. Sometimes when we travel it can be hard to find activities for all of us to do and staying at Chango Villa has made traveling easy in a large group with different ages. Not only do we all get to stay under the same roof but we also get to enjoy things from swimming/lounging to snorkeling/scuba driving together no matter the age. I without any question or doubt recommend Chango Villa to anyone visiting Cozumel!!
