About the property

Two Bedrooms, Two Full Baths To Accommodate Up To 4 Guests, all ocean views

Villa Anna is a brand-new luxury privately-owned rental property at Isla 33 Resort & Villas. Located on the second level, the property sleeps up to 4 guests, perfect for a romantic getaway, a family vacation, or your bridal party. Maid service is included, so you need do nothing but relax.

The rooftop pool offers stunning 360-degree views of the island.

Enjoy water views from every room – the living rooms and master suites look out on the stunning Caribbean ocean, and the kitchen and guest bedrooms feature views of the Ocean and Cancun, the Salina Grande Lagoon and a beautiful new park. Only 10 minutes from the great restaurants and fun of Hidalgo Street and North Beach, Villa Messina is ideally situated in the center of Isla Mujeres, where you’ll enjoy tranquility, beautiful sea breezes and unparalleled ocean views. The property is decorated with furnishings hand-made by local artisans, and paintings by Isla artist Gaby Tosello grace the walls.

The Villa includes spacious living rooms with open floor plans. As you enter the large living areas, the first thing you notice is the spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea just beyond the large balcony. Thanks to the wall-spanning pocket doors, the view is completely unobstructed, and you’ll enjoy the beautiful sea breeze. Across the living rooms is the entrance to the master suites with the same gorgeous views, with pocket doors and a spacious balcony. The master bedrooms feature hand-made domed brick ceilings – a traditional architectural detail in the Yucatan region. The beautiful Jacuzzi area shares the ocean view, and the tub is surrounded with hand-cut tikul tile. The ensuite bath connects the Jacuzzi to the shower and toilet areas, flanked by a large closet area.

To the right of the living rooms, the dining rooms adjoin a granite breakfast bar and very large kitchen with granite countertops with stainless steel appliances. The wide kitchen windows offer views of a beautiful new park, a salt lake in the center of the island, and as well as the ocean and the Cancun skyline. The guest bedrooms are just off the dining room - large rooms with ample closets and sliding glass doors, with the same stunning view and a balcony. The second baths are just outside the bedrooms and feature large walk-in showers and stone sinks.

About Alice Speh & Bob Pierson

We are both college professors – Bob teaches business and economics, and Alice teaches Russian and Spanish. Our full-time home is in the Philadelphia area. We discovered Isla Mujeres in 2009, while searching for the perfect place for our destination wedding. In August 2010 we were married on the beach, just a little way down from the villas.

Alice Speh & Bob Pierson purchased this condo in 2012

Why Alice Speh & Bob Pierson chose La Gloria

Isla Mujeres is hardly the first Caribbean island we’ve visited, but after years of traveling, it’s definitely our favorite. It’s a very special, very inviting place, where we’ve made many friends and fallen in love with the community. Isla Mujeres is relaxed, beautiful, and completely authentic: small enough to offer a completely personal experience, but large enough to offer every convenience and activities for every taste.

What makes this condo unique

Villa Messina accommodate from 1 - 4 guests and is open and spacious. The retreat is decorated with furnishings and paintings created by local artisans. But the decor can't compare to the stunning turquoise water views we enjoy from all sides of the condo.

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to Isla and I love it! The property was immaculate with excellent customer service. All of our requests were taken care of right away. The pools were beautiful and relaxing. It was easy to get around the island with our golf cart. Leslie was great! I would and HAVE recommended this property to friends and family. Our week consisted of lots of beach time with fruity drinks, zip lining at Garrafon, massages and GREAT restaurants! One restaurant that I would NOT return to is Casa de los Suenos. They were over-priced and out lobster was overcooked. Isla is a very special island - warm, welcoming people and a very relaxing and fun atmosphere. Can't wait to return!!!

The property is absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at Isla 33! Bob and Alice go out of there way to make sure that you are more than comfortable. The condo is beautifully furnished, clean, offers an excellent view and accommodates all of your needs.

The customer service was fantastic. Any questions we answered within the hour, and the staff helped to set us up on fishing trips and a tour of Chichen Itza.

The food was fantastic all over the island. Our favorite place was Bastos.

We would absolutely recommend staying at Isla 33.

Thanks Bob & Alice for a wonderful trip!

Exceptional villa with great location

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Alice's villa is the perfect place for a family vacation or getaway with friends. My friends and I stayed here and felt like royalty. The villa itself is gorgeous---decorated with beautiful art, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, super comfortable, huge beds and luxurious bathrooms. The decor and comfort of the villa become almost secondary to the views from the balconies of the clear blue ocean. We loved the location because it is minutes via golf cart or moped from the North side and South side of the island, but also quiet and serene for downtime. The island itself is the perfect vacation spot for time on the beach, delicious and cheap food and drinks, interactions with locals, practicing Spanish, shopping, and relaxing. I highly recommend staying at Bob and Alice's villa for a once in a lifetime experience!!!!

One of the nicest on the island

  • 5 of 5

This unit is very large, would be great for two couples or a family of 4 - 6. Very good staff that were friendly and accommodating. Beautiful ocean view, close enough to everything, without being downtown. Roof top pool is amazing. We have the opportunity to meet Bob and Alice there, they are wonderful people and took great care of us; touring us around and showing even more awesome restaurants. Highly recommend the island as a destination and these condos for accommodations (definitely one of the nicest around). Gwen & Bill

In Isla Mujeres, you'll indulge your love of the beach. The “Find Your Beach” Corona commercials – where the couple sits on a gorgeous beach enjoying the beer – are filmed right on Isla, on North Beach. Isla Mujeres was among Jacques Cousteau’s favorite diving destinations, and you can enjoy excellent snorkeling, scuba diving, sport fishing, boating -- the entire range of water sports. June through August is Whale Shark season on Isla. Don't miss the opportunity to swim with these “gentle giants of the deep.” Actually they’re the world’s largest fish (between 25-40 feet long), and it’s possible to swim with between 30 and 40 of them at a time. It’s a bucket list experience. Villa Anna & Villa Messina are conveniently located beachfront, approximately mid-island. It's only a 5 minute golf cart or taxi ride to town, where Hidalgo Street offers shopping and dining of all descriptions, and you can sunbathe on North Beach or charter a fishing boat for the day. Rent bikes or mopeds and tour the island, stopping at fun local bars and cafes for refreshment.

There are over 100 restaurants on the island, and Isla attracts people from all over the world – dinner conversation often switches between English, Spanish, French, Italian, German – it’s quite a spectacle, but lots of fun. Isla Mujeres is a naturally friendly place.
