Zona Hotelera Norte Villa Rental Photos and Description


Our beautiful Cozumel beach front home (which we call 'La Ballena') is available for your enjoyment year-round as a vacation rental property. Located on the quiet North end of the island, there's always easy transportation to and from the main part of town, either via taxi or rental car.

La Ballena is located on the island of Cozumel, which is just a few miles off the Yucatan Peninsula in the Mexican Riviera. Direct flights are available from major U.S. markets throughout the season through Apple charters or ATA; Northwest Airlines, Continental and American also have flights with stop-overs in Houston, and Delta has flights with stop-overs in Atlanta.

Of course, many airlines and flights are also available through Cancun, including American, Mexicana and United, with an additional flight on AeroCozumel. It is also a short cab ride from Cancun airport to Playa Del Carmen with express ferry to Cozumel. Both options are short and inexpensive and can help you easily get to our Cozumel rental home.

Great Couples Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this location with two other couples (six people total) and it was amazing. The beach is literally ten yards from the infinity pool. Downtown is a short, $5 taxi ride so we were able to buy groceries at the Mega store for all week. Breakfast and Lunch were easily prepared in the kitchen and we had dinner out most nights. Water is filtered so safe to drink and cook with. Bedrooms were very spacious and AC in every room. Two bedrooms overlook the ocean with a balcony. Maid service every other day to clean, wash dishes, do laundry. The property manager was very responsive if we needed anything.

We spent a majority of our day relaxing around the pool or snorkeling. A ten minute walk down the beach and you arrive at one of the best snorkeling spots I have ever been. There are a few restaurants/bars within walking distance but most you need to reach by the $5/80 peso ride into town.

I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice relaxing beach/pool experience with snorkeling adventure thrown in. We can't wait to book another trip to this location!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation rental on the beach of Cozumel! Our family of 4 shared this house with another family of 4, we all had our own space with plenty of room. The kids ages 4-12 enjoyed the many hours spent in the pool, building sand castles on our own beach, collecting shells and playing around on noodles in the calm ocean. It was wonderful that anyone who needed an afternoon rest could go relax in their own space while the rest of the family could still enjoy the pool and ocean. Having a fully stocked kitchen, gas grill, as well as washer and drier is a major plus for families, it is very easy to go to the local shopping center for all your needs, we ate at the house for the majority of meals. Awesome vacation! Thanks Kathy and Jim!

Spent a week here with our family and really enjoyed ourselves. The home is very spacious with all the amenities anyone could want. We used the gas grill often and the washer and dryer were great to keep up with all the beach towels. The staff were all very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Even the landscaper that was there daily, took the time to open some coconuts so we could drink the water out of it. Lots of memories made that week.thanks for sharing your home.

A perfect place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation in Cozumel , where we stayed at La Ballena it was absolutely perfect . We have four adult children who live in four different states NE,ID,Co,and IL we all stayed here and had plenty of room for all 8 of us . This was our first time renting a place , we had stayed at all inclusive before. So we really didn't know what to expect . The owners Kathy and Jim and the managers Lori and Jim made everything so easy . They are great people to work with . The house and setting was beautiful and so convenient to get around, be it going to town ,restaurants store airport etc.. We liked everything about the house , pool,and beach ( the beach is nice and sandy not rocky like some parts of Cozumel ) the table in dinning area was large enough to set all 8 of us very comfortable. The kitchen had everything you needed and then some .the outdoor grill was great and we used it a lot . In the evening we all found our selves sitting in the screened porch area around the table laughing ,playing games and watching the cruise ships go by . If you do not want to rent a car that is no problem because the cabs are just out by the road . They have a book in the house that has some of there favorite restaurants and different thing to do or places to go shopping this was very helpful . While we were there Jim and Lori are a phone call away to help with anything you need or have questions about. We can not say enough good things about our stay . What I will say is we will differently go back and never stay at a all inclusive again. it was great to be on our own time and eat ,drink ,play in pool ,or ocean when ever we wanted !!you don't get that at the resorts. We would highly recommend to anyone thinking about staying here to do it . You will be happy you did !

LRBA returns

  • 5 of 5

Still excited from spending 8 days with 8 girlfriends at this beach front home!

We all were housed in 4 inviting bedrooms with plenty of space to roam around. Large table housed us all for meals, games, planning time, and giggles. First night was the best sunset which we enjoyed from floating in the ocean or walking on the beach. The Pirate ship passed in from of the sunset for a memorable picture. The beach was outside the screened in porch and very accessible for dips, paddleboarding, snorkeling by the pier, walks, etc. The pool on their patio was a great pulse for morning, afternoon, or evening dips. Location of the home was very convenient if one wanted to travel to the shopping area, restaurants, and excursions. For the times we needed a taxi, they were parked close outside the gate ..... didn't even need to call for one. The home was well equipped for cooking and seemed to be a moderately priced rental home with a cozy atmosphere. All our needs were met and more. Our snorkel excursions were booked with "Chili Charters -- expericenced tour guides for snorkeling and dives and even hired out for a smaller group sunset cruise. I would recommend them for any of your prospective renters. They were personable, knowledgeable, and you could tell they love what they do. Thanks for offering us this great opportunity to share your home and come back with some of our own memories.

Girls Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

It was the PERFECT setting for a fun-filled girl's vacation. It is a gorgeous setting and wonderful location. We enjoyed sunsets, beach walks, snorkeling, paddleboarding, and floating in the pool, all without the need of hopping in a car. It is a short ride to town for great shopping, food, and entertainment. You just walk to the front of the property and taxis are waiting to take you to town.

The house is beautiful, with all of the special touches of home. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking, if you so desire. There was plenty of room for 9 women to enjoy themselves. My favorites were the screened porch, the private pool, and the filtered water throughout the house. (It was safe to drink all water out of the tap)

I would HIGHLY reccomend this beautiful home and destination for a great vacation spot. You need to experience La Ballena!
