Overview

Quintana Roo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Villa Dos (Second Home)- a striking oceanfront vacation villa truly one of the most deluxe 5/6 BR rental properties on the island of Cozumel - a real gem. It is located 9.5 miles south of town near Cozumel's premier beaches and best dive sites.

You can feel comfortable renting our oceanfront villa because it is managed by At Home in Cozumel. They have been helping us rent our home and take care of our guests for about 10 years. They are members of the BBB. Make sure and mention this VRBO ad.

We brought most of our furnishings from the US with a moving company. Our family had been in the high-end furniture retail business since 1948. We were so surprised that it actually made here!!! We tried to not miss a thing in the design of this rental property with its immaculate decorations with an eclectic blend of furnishings, including contemporary, traditional and oriental designs. Not to brag but we feel no details have been overlooked in this 5500-sq. foot architectural wonder.

Villa Dos is 3 stories plus a large covered terrace as well as spacious poolside patio. It has 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, 2 living areas, 1 main kitchen and 2 kitchenettes, large oceanfront swimming pool, huge covered terrace, incredible ocean views and is strategically located on Cozumel's finest beaches (San Francisco and Paradise Beach). Step outside and onto your dive boat - most dive sites are within a 5 minute boat ride. Outstanding sunsets guaranteed nightly - have your camera ready!

A party of up to 14 guests will enjoy the ultimate in comfort both inside and out at Villa Dos. Guests particularly like the option of congregating in the main living room or pool area or seeking solitude in the other living areas or private suite. Each floor has a separate entry so guests can join the crowd–or escape it–depending on their mood. Villa Dos is always rented as a villa and never as suites individually.

Ground floor:

SUITE SEVEN 1 king bed, private bath, kitchenette

SUITE FIVE 1 king bed, private bath, kitchenette

1 queen bed, private bath

*Optional bedroom in the den: 2 single beds used as day bed can be made up as 2 twins or 1 king; private bath up one floor or use one of the other two bathrooms for suite 5.

Second floor:

SUITE THREE 1 king bed, private bath

2 queen beds in one bedroom, private bath

1 full bath for living area (and for use by the den sleepers in suite Five)

Full kitchen

3rd floor:

Owner’s quarters and administrative offices.

The elegant oceanfront swimming pool was designed to provide incredible views from the house, patios and from the swimming pool itself. One end of the pool is crescent shaped with built-in seating from which you have unrestricted views of the beach and magnificent blue waters of the Caribbean. The unique infinity-edge pool creates an illusion that the pool and ocean are connected. Built-in gas barbecue and seatings areas and freshwater shower have been incorporated into the poolside patio area. The large Oceanfront terrace provide superb ocean/pool views and are ideal for morning coffee or al fresco dining for 10.

My Mom and Dad, David and Janie, occupy the entire separate top floor. They are not traditional inn keepers but they are a phone call away if you need to ask them something. They do not share any living spaces with you, use the pool or even open their curtains while you are having the time of your life. No need to 'keep it down'.

About Nicole Gaines

Update: My Dear Dad passed away after a 5 year battle with stage IV Colon Cancer. Mom continues to carry on their dream at Villa Dos.

David and Janie, my Mom and Dad, live on site (and out of your way) to carefully ensure that everything in the villa is kept just right! My Mom 'uses a fine tooth comb' after each guest departs. She would 'give her eye teeth' to make sure each guests is pleased with their stay.

These folks are animal lovers and have rescued 2 dogs and 2 cats from roaming the streets on Cozumel. Unfortunately they do not allow any animals in the rental villa. If you see an animal in town or on the beach that you would like to adopt then feel free to ask Janie to help you make the arrangements. They are true Southerners - kind, humble, and down to earth.

Nicole Gaines purchased this villa in 2001

Why Nicole Gaines chose Quintana Roo

We picked out the villa location while diving. It was once wooded with lush tropical flowers and trees and of course sand and ocean. While riding on the dive boat, as we passed by the unpopulated area and always commented that it would be nice to have a house there - close to the dive sites and the beach clubs - right on the ocean!

The Villa Dos (2nd Home) dream became a reality in 2001. Dad and Mom drove to Cozumel (with me, our two dogs and our cat) to see through the finalization of the construction and they never turned back (to Alabama). Mom and Dad live at Villa Dos year around to keep a close eye on their little gem.

Company Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We used your magnificent Villa dos at the end of last January for our Corporates retreat and it was great! We arrived and took full advantage of the peace and quiet to relax and wind down, we also took full advantage of the to die for view and walking on the beach resembled a picture postcard. The place was immaculate and furnished beautifully with everything we needed, and the onsite owners were gracious and kind hosts. With a beautiful beach right off the back deck and entertainment a few sandy steps down the beach it has the best of both worlds, and being swept away by the gorgeous sunset and soft ocean breeze at the end of the day was pure bliss.

Now, we have returned from Cozumel refreshed and replenished and wishing we could go back; if you are planning a trip to Cozumel I highly recommend booking with these guys; you won’t regret it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the compliments and for taking the time to review Villa Dos. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dos. My father picked out this lot because it was on a beautiful sandy beachfront. Villa Dos is also convenient to all of the great dive spots on the south end of the island of Cozumel. And viewing the stunning sunset from the infinity pool at Villa Dos is also a favorite. And you're right, it's great to know there are beach clubs within walking distance of your peaceful, private villa. Please, let us know when you need to unwind again! My mom, Janie said she'd love to have you back again.

Family vacation paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed at Villa Dos and loved every minute. Our 3 granddaughters shared the bedroom with the 2 queen beds, and the 3 couples and grandson had the 4 bedrooms with very comfortable king beds. The house is arranged so that there are 3 sitting areas which gave us room to get away from the group for some quiet. When everyone wanted to be together, the large kitchen/eating/ watching TV area had comfy seating for all of us. There are 6 bathrooms including one off the large family area.

When we looked out the French doors toward the ocean, the view was fantastic. There were 2 tables and chairs on the covered porch, then steps down to the beautiful infinity pool. All of this overlooks the ocean and private beach with chairs. The kids were in the pool before we had the car unloaded, and then everyone hit the beach for snorkeling. It was amazing to be able to snorkel right out the back door whenever we wanted.

We cooked 1 or 2 meals everyday, and the kitchen had everything including a 6 burner stove and side-by-side refrigerator with an ice-maker hooked up to bottled water. There were plenty of dishes, glasses, etc for the 10 of us. A lovely lady came and cleaned every day which made it a real vacation for me too.

The owner Janie lives on the top floor; this was a very handy arrangement since she was always happy to help us. Having an English speaking person nearby was comforting, but after we checked in we didn't know she was there if we didn't look for her.

The wifi was very good and a free phone was available for calls home or on the island. There were a few channels in English on the TV, but we did not spend much time watching it.

Beautiful home layout and location.

  • 4 of 5

Property is well maintained. Photo's listed on VRBO don't show the current size of foliage around the property. the owner living on the property is very gracious to show the property upon your arrival, but you are unaware she is on site during the rest of the stay. I would most definitely recommend this property to others! Beautiful sunsets, snorkeling available in warm water right out the front door!

Owner's Response: Hi Susie! Thank you for choosing Villa Dos. My mom does like to greet folks upon arrival. She likes to show you how everything works and all. But you're right, then she tries to stay out of the guests way. And we are so happy that the little coconut trees my fatter planted after hurricane Wilma have toward up higher than the second floor. Also, it's nice to have shade to sit under while you're on the beach. We hope to see you guys again.

Everything you need in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were in Cozumel for a week and stayed here for a wedding. In short, the trip was a blast and Villa Dos provided everything we were looking for. The rooms are all nicely decorated and the layout almost feels like several separate houses with shared kitchen and outdoor pool area, which was great for the 5 couples we had staying in the Villa! The staff that came in to clean and maintain the property everyday was wonderful as well. Kitchen was very well stocked right down to the hand juicer for squeezing fresh lime juice into those margaritas!

Very convenient location as well with full scale resorts to one side, and several bars/restaurants just steps away down the beach and a great ‘hole in the wall’ taco stand walking distance up the driveway on the main road. If you can swing it, I highly recommend scuba diving while there... the reef is amazing!

It was our first time to Cozumel, I can't wait to go back, and I certainly look forward to returning to Villa Dos.

Awesome house and staff, and excellent snorkeling!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Villa Dos. The house is magnificent, as advertised, and Janie could not have been any nicer to us. The twelve us enjoyed perfect weather during the Christmas week and took advantage of all of the beach sports offered by the nearby day spas. The water was so warm (hard to remember one month later while I'm freezing in Cleveland) and the snorkeling right off of the beach was excellent. The house was always clean and the staff was so kind and tolerant (8 kids ages 18-24 - that's no fun for anyone!) The only down side was that the internet was very sketchy and probably only worked about 25% of the time we were there. But it didn't prove to be too much of an issue as WiFi was available just down the beach.

All in all, a great trip and great Christmas memories for all of us. Thanks for making it possible for us.

Owner's Response: Hi Jane, Thank you for choosing Villa Dos. I'm glad my mom was finally able to resolve our internet problem. The new router should help even though sometimes we have area outages. Thank you for taking the time to wrote a review. We're glad you guys enjoyed yourselves. Please keep us in mind for your next Cozumel trip. Nicole
