Guestbook comments from the manager

“Perfect Place in Isla”

5 of 5 starsReviewed September 24, 2013

We stayed at Estrella del Mar last May and loved it! Great kitchen and living area and the bedrooms upstairs have really nice views. And from the rooftop you see 360 degrees of beautiful blue water. The pool is awesome and the location in Punta Sur is very peaceful. The property manager did a great job running things and made sure our stay was problem-free. We loved it so much there we ended up buying a house just down the road!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay, the house is amazing and Isla Mujeres is a really cool island. The house had everything we could ask for, we had 4 adults and more than enough space, 6 people would be very comfortable. The pool was gorgeous (it was very hot when we were there so spent a lot of time chilling in the pool), as was the rooftop terrace, unbelievable views. Very nice kitchen, we kept talking about cooking there but then would find delicious food - The Joint is 100 yards away - a cool cantina and has really delicious food. Lots of other excellent food on the island - Marbella, just up the street, was one of the best meals we've ever had. I would highly recommend Estrella Del Mar!

Excellent Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent. From the private pool, to the 3 bedrooms, to the amazing rooftop views, this house was the perfect place on the island. The house, furniture, etc. were all in great condition. The property owner was there to meet us on arrival and give us a tour and helpful information. We had one small issue with water pressure in one of the showers, which was corrected immediately by the property owner. The rooftop offers great views during the day (all ocean views), during the sunset, and at night for star gazing. The house is clean, well taken care of, and quite a steal for the price. If I go back, I will absolutely book this house again.

A beautiful and well-appointed home

  • 5 of 5

Estrella del Mar is magical. Watching the stars at night from the rooftop. Walking across the street to Garrafon and 2-minutes to Ixtel - you couldn't pick a better site. The English speaking owner was very polite, responsive and helpful throughout the rental and arrival process. We thought it might be a bit far out of Centro as we love to eat and drink there - but the location is actually perfect - very quiet at night and you will always feel super-safe. In fact, there is a taxi stand across the street at Garrafon and taxis are just $5usd to and from the Ferry and Centr. Every detail is thought of in this home - just bring your flip flops and swimsuit! Estrella del Mar is a great value.

Beautiful Oasis!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful our stay at Estrella del Mar was this past week. My wife and I and our two teenage daughters made the journey to Isla Mujeres and wanted to rent a home in lieu of staying at Playa Norte in a noisy condo. Upon arrival we found that the home was lovely, well built and thoughtfully furnished. The bedrooms are good sized and came with all of the linens you could need including beach towels. The property is located across the street from Garrafon Park near the tip of Punta Sur. Although across from a lively tourist spot, we never heard any commotion, not even traffic noise penetrated into the solitude of this lovely home. Susan was the perfect host and always available if a need arose. We spent a few nights in after exhaustive outings to the beautiful beaches and Oscar's restaurant provided outstanding delivery of great Mexican classics as well as a dynamite pizza! You can't go wrong with this property for your visit to La Isla, I know that we will definitely stay at this home when our travels take us back to Isla Mujeres.

Truly a star

  • 5 of 5

Estrella del Mar is a great property for a family, small group or couple. The house is private and secure albeit on a busy road and down the street from a busy tourist attraction. The design of the house took on the elements of its surroundings and lent itself to the best possible views and maximum sun exposure for the pool which was always warm. For those that have never been to Isla Mujeres, each side of the island is distinctive in that the Caribbean side is breezy with a constant trade wind whereas the bayside is far less breezy and essentially warmer with massive views of the Cancun skyline which is breathtaking. This home takes full advantage of all that it has been offered. Susan the owner was very easy and accommodating to work with. She allowed my family and I to check in early and check out late. Her management team is excellent and very attentive. The pictures and descriptions of the property are very accurate and even better in person. We have stayed in many homes on Isla and this is our favorite. Two big thumbs up for Estrella del Mar!

Estrella del Mar - fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't understand how this villa does not have more five star reviews. It is beautiful and clean (the pictures almost don't do it justice) and the rate is more than fair.

The layout is wonderful - two sliders off the living area/kitchen directly to pool area. The pool does indeed get full sun all day, but is large enough that the temperature stays refreshing even into the evening (though we stayed in May so the true summer months may up the temps a bit in the evening). We stayed for a week and saw the pool service twice, a friendly young man who didn't interrupt but cleaned the pool, tested the water, etc. The three bedrooms are upstairs, all with their own a/c units which worked wonderfully. Windows abound and should be opened for a fantastic breeze, especially in the upstairs hallway where the heat can build up (we found this trick late into our stay unfortunately!) Bathrooms were nicely appointed and clean. Everything was so clean, did I mention that!? The property has a main gate so you can pull your golf cart in if you'd like (though your rental company may request you leave it out so they can gas it up - we did this and had no problems). The gate is a nice feature if you have safety concerns, and all of the windows and sliders have nice locking features as well. The rooftop palapa allows you to see sunrise and sunset. There were at least three large water jugs to replenish in the dispenser. There is a keyed safe for your passports and anything you'd want to lock up. The owner was very responsive to all of our inquiries and the property management company was easy to get a hold of once we were there (we requested additional paper products and they were delivered almost immediately).

I will address the location since it seems to be that review that is the lowest. Yes, the villa is across from Garrafon park, almost at South Point. You will benefit from a golf cart. We have been to Isla three times and have always stayed in this area, so it is not a problem for us, in fact we prefer the quiet nights and the sightseeing that driving "home" allows. No, you cannot necessarily see the water from the pool area, but to us that was a small price to pay as the villa itself is stunning and you can certainly pay a few hundred more a night if being directly on the beach/water is imperative for you (you absolutely can see the water - both sides- from the rooftop palapa).

We will absolutely rent this villa again if we return with other couples!
