Gorgeous 3 bedroom villa with stunning ocean views. Pool and bedrooms have views overlooking Garrafon National Marine Park and Cancun Bay. From the roof top terrace you have 360 degree views over looking Isla Mujeres. The pool area has sun from early morning until sunset. The back yard has shade and nice garden areas. All of the bedrooms have beautiful views of the ocean and have access to the common balcony. This house is a great place to enjoy this island paradise, you can enjoy your privacy and are still close to all of the services and activities of Isla Mujeres.
Welcome to Estrella del Mar!
I have lived on beautiful Isla Mujeres seasonally since 2007.
“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!

The property was "as advertised". I recommend the location. The property was a good value for the price paid. The property provided wifi/internet access. My security deposit was returned on time.
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.
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.
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!
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!
We had a group visit Isla Mujeres and it was absolutely amazing!! The pictures don't do this home justice. I told the owner she should charge more, and after actually seeing the house, the price was awesome! At first we were a little bummed that it was farther south than we thought we would like but there were some amazing spots right next to the home that were actually wonderful to see. We did the Dolphin Discovery, Garrafon Park and a day of kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling and drinks by the pool at Hotel Sueno for $25. Since the island actually shuts down about 1AM at the latest spots this house was perfect!!! We rented a golf cart, which we would have done no matter where on the island we were staying. Aside from the house being beautiful, in a great spot, the property manager was as sweet as can be. The owner was easy to get in touch with and answered all of my questions. It was a very pleasant experience and our whole group is grateful since this was the first time any of us did VRBO. We plan to go back next year again. HIGHLY Recommend!!!!!
I just enjoyed one unforgettable week at Estrella del Mar -and simply found it hard to leave! Everything was perfection!
The master bedroom is equipped with large closets, a very cozy bed and a breathtaking view of the Caribbean sea. The 2 other bedrooms view across Garrafon park, an even more stunning view than what you can see from a golf cart as you near the southern tip of the island.
Both upstairs bathrooms have beautiful tiling and a bright modern feel. There are unique architectural elements throughout that provide unexpected views of both the south end and water. The third floor offers complete 360 views that allow you to see all the way to the hotel zone on the mainland and a large portion of the island.
The first floor is equipped with a modern kitchen, a comfortable living room, dining room and large outdoor area with a gorgeous pool.
The entire first floor faces the outdoor area, which makes it accessible from all 3 spaces. There is even a large grill to cook your fresh catch.
The gated parking has space for multiple golf carts and mopeds.
What I enjoyed most was the solitude both the house and environs provided. The birds and ocean breezes were simply divine..I felt very much a part of nature while enjoying at the same time modern comforts. A perfect blend to create an incredible stay!!! I will definitely return!!
