|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
Villa Debra is a luxury 4 bedroom Villa situated directly on the beach in Costa del Sol - a gated oceanfront community. The front door is only 65 feet from the turquoise and transparent sea. The sea in front is within the bounds of the Cozumel Reefs National Park. This home is located just south of Chankanaab National Park and only a 15 minute drive to downtown San Miguel. This luxurious home is part of the gated community Costa del Sol, with 24 hour security, 135 ft pier, 400 ft beach, infinity pool plus children's pool. Diving clubs can rent multiple homes in the community to accomodate larger groups. Just ask me about this.
This four-bedroom single-family home has three bedrooms on the first floor, each with a private bath. And, an incredibly huge second floor master suite with double bathroom. There are gorgeous views of the water from most every room and the 'million-dollar view' from the second floor deck which will accomodate a large group. The first floor is spacious and open with a completely equipped kitchen which flows into the large dining room with seating for twelve. The living room, as well as the first floor master bedroom, is a wall of windows with a direct view of the water.

Our family and I stayed at the beautiful Villa Debra last week and had an AMAZING time. The home is absolutely beautiful; very clean and the location is unbelievable. Located right on the beach and nestled in the corner. We had access to a private dock and had our dive boat pick us up every day. Jasianna was perfect! After our long flight we finally arrived to the house and she welcomed us with open arms and even went grocery shopping for us. I highly recommend staying here and we will definitely be back for many years to come.
The Villa is everything that every other reviewer has said, and more. It is amazingly spacious...we were a group of 7 adults, never felt crowded and it was easy to spread out. The rooms are large, each with its own full bathroom. The kitchen is amazingly well stocked with everything needed to cook, make drinks, etc. (Everything but food, of course. And you buy that at the Mega Mart, which is a very nice store that will rival most grocers in the US.) We did use the cooking service that was recommended by the owner and it was excellent and reasonably priced. Our chef was Alex and he was great - a good chef and very personable.
The entertainment center was very new and there is a good selection of dvd's. We mostly used it to show videos and pictures from our own cameras, especially the underwater shots taken by the divers amongst us. Wi-Fi is not U.S. quality high speed but it's pretty good. There is also a phone for calling both locally and the U.S. without charge. The second floor deck is spacious and looks out over the ocean and beach that is in front of the property. On this deck, there is an extremely nice propane-powered grill that we used a few times.
Villa Debra is part of a larger gated community. The overall community is very nice and the property is well-maintained. We always felt safe. The guard shack will call a taxi if you need it. We rented a car and there is a designated parking space. The location of Villa Debra within this larger community is perfect - it is right on the beach, tucked away in the corner and insulated from the other villas. And yet, it is right next to the pool and the dock.
For scuba divers, the dock is perfect because any dive shop will pick you up and drop you off at this dock as it is already close to the majority of the island's dive sites. Another big plus is the freshwater dunk tank for your equipment, right next to the pool. And since the pool is right next to the villa, you don't have to carry the equipment very far.
And the owner, Jasianna...she is amazing. She is the new owner, having bought the property only within the past couple months. So you will see references to Debra and Matt in the previous reviews. Everything that reviewers have said about Debra/Matt....can easily be repeated for Jasianna. She was extremely helpful and responsive whenever we requested anything and her recommendations were always worthwhile. You can immediately tell that she wants to make your stay as wonderful as possible.
Our dive trip was the trip of a life time. Villa Debra was everything offered and more. Our dive outfitter, Advanced Divers, picked us up every morning just out side our door on our own dock. The weather was perfect. Villa Debra was clean and functional. We were there over Easter, our grand children were invited by residents in the complex to join them in their Easter Egg Hunt. This complex is gated with security that offer to help with everything from luggage to groceries. We will be back for sure. Thanks Deb
I can't say enough about the property and the owner, Deb.
The house is as advertised and the pictures don't do it justice. We had 6 adults, 1 teen and 5 younger ones and the house was plenty big. Ideal location for the pool, beach and pier. Each bedroom had great furnishings and individual (exquisite) bathrooms. The kitchen was well-stocked and was able to accommodate our entire family in a single seating. As for the other common areas, the upper level deck obviously provided wonderful views in the evening. And overlooked is a nice little seating area outside the first level "front" bedroom. Everything in the house is clean and well maintained, and it is apparent Deb cut no corners in furnishing the house.
The community is nice, but maybe not as exceptional as the house itself. It seemed we had the community to ourselves, so it was quiet throughout the week. The convenience of the pier was great, whether for picking us up for a fishing trip or just going snorkeling every day. The pool was pretty good - nice that it had a kid-friendly area, but the surrounding stone can get quite slippery and there are some odd / dangerous edges that you have to be weary of with kids. The hot tub was neither the cleanest nor hottest, but that is obviously not the biggest deal when in Mexico. The beach wasn't "powdery" as it is somewhat rocky - it's not really the kind of sand that our kids could use to build sand castles, but still nice.
Location is great if you don't want to be right downtown like us. It is a reasonable 15 minute drive to downtown & anything you could want, including the grocery store. Some beach clubs are about a mile south of the house, Chankanaab is maybe 5 minutes north, and getting to the East side of the island is simple (although be careful trying to do so at night - we nearly ran through a police "checkpoint" closing the road for the night a few miles south of the house).
And Deb has to be the most accommodating owner / property manager. Because of a scheduling error on our part, my family arrived a day early & had to stay one evening at a resort. Deb still arranged to meet us at the airport and get us on our way, while also meeting us at the house the next day. She also helped coordinate car rentals while we were there and helped worked around some problems (created by us) in picking the cars up. She communicated with us throughout via phone / email.
I would definitely recommend the house to anyone and would certainly stay there again.
We traveled to Cozumel for a week in early December. Staying at Villa Debra was an amazing experience and made for a perfect vacation. The property is in a private, gated community and short drive away from town. The house is spacious, well-equipped with all the amenities, and has the most perfect location. The highlight for us was the huge terrace with the most incredible views!
Last but not the least, Deb is a great host. She met us at the airport, showed us around the house and was always just a phone call away for any help we needed. She arranged a snorkeling expedition for us and also had our rental gear waiting for us when we arrived! We would love to go back to Villa Debra
Villa Debra is everything that is advertised and so much more! We had nine people in our group and there was more than enough room for everybody. The ocean and the pier are right outside the front door and all of Cozumel’s great attractions are just a short ride away. Villa Debra has all of the modern amenities that you will need and the kitchen is ready to go. Whether you’re grilling on the deck, relaxing by the pool, or playing in the ocean, this is the place that you want to be. It is perfect for people of all ages and families. We arrived after sunset the first evening but never missed another from the deck overlooking the sea. When booking over the internet you sometimes wonder if your destination is as good as it looks; this one is better than advertised. If you are planning on visiting Cozumel and looking for a place to stay, the Villa Debra has it all! On a final note, Debra is an awesome hostess!
