Property Reviews 
Villa Yak'alil stay
Deborah M. from Carlsbad, NM recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in November, 2014
Overall our stay was excellent. The staff was wonderful, kind, and Jackie was very helpful. We loved the house, the volleyball court, and the snorkeling. One suggestion would be maybe a separate kids menu - so they wouldn't waste as much food and would maybe eat more.

Perfect place for a family vacation with children
Kristie L. from Fort Collins, CO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014
We had a fabulous stay at Villa Yak Alil in August 2014. We went to celebrate my 40th bday with family and friends with a total of 14. There was plenty of beds and space for everyone. When we arrived the home was even better than expected from the photos. Snorkeling just outside the house was even better than the snorkeling trip we took. The kids played in the pool for hours and the staff was very accommodating. The food was the biggest treat of all. It was delicious and so nice to not have to cook or clean. I would suggest getting the chef for sure. It is a bit of a drive to the main town but that was a plus because it felt very safe and secure. It also made if very peaceful and relaxing being away from all the hustle and bustle. The only problems were that only one kayak was working and none of the water bikes worked at all. Also the wifi barely worked. I think this was a temporary problem but many of us were frustrated with not being able to check emails.

Paradise
Elizabeth A. from Murphy, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
This was the first large family vacation we've done. We had 10 people in our group and this house had plenty of room for us. Everything was amazing about our vacation. Jackie worked very hard to keep the house neat and tidy. Reynaldo made sure the outside was in order each morning. He took time to one coconuts for our kids and they thought that was awesome. Lucy and Norma cooked for us and all of the meals were delicious. The snorkeling from the beach was awesome. It is best to go just after sunrise before the tour boats start running. We saw a reef tip shark, barracudas, needle nose fish, several types of conch, starfish, and lots of colorful fish. The highlight of our day was sitting near the beach and watching the sunset and seeing if we could catch a glimpse of the alligator as he swam by at night.We weren't really sure what to expect from a vacation rental, but Villa Yak Alil far surpassed our expectations. I can't wait until we can go back.

Vacation 2014
A guest from Wichita, KS recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in June, 2014
Our stay at Yak'alil was fabulous! The house is perfect for a large family (we had 15) and the outdoor space is private, inviting and entertaining. Jackie did a great job keeping the house clean and in order during our stay and helped us with transportation and even finding a doctor when we had to make in unexpected trip. Reynaldo kept the grounds and outdoor space beautiful and went above and beyond to help our family enjoy vacation by splitting coconuts for the kids, lighting a bonfire and teaching a couple of the kids how to fish. I highly recommend the food service. Norma and Lucy made us the most amazing dishes and were very flexible with the times. We always had leftovers to snack on throughout the day! My only less positive comments is that we thought there was a washer and dryer available for guest use by the way it is advertised, and there is not. Jackie was kind enough to do a couple of loads of laundry for us, but we would have packed differently had we been aware of that. It is about 20 minutes from town so with a large party taxi rental is expensive, but Miguel and Miguel drove for us the entire 2 weeks and helped us tremendously. They made reservations for us, gave tips on the ferry, grocery shopped with us to help navigate the store and even translated at the doctor! Well worth the money! We hope to return to this beautiful home with endless views!

Perfect house for a perfect vacation
Jenny N. from Roy, UT recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014
The Coz Crew has been coming to Cozumel for 12 years. We have had as many as 26 people in our group. This year we had 8. This house was absolutely perfect for our group. It was set on a private beach with direct beach access. The volleyball net/court was amazing to have ready to go all the time. The pool was a little small, but a perfect size for the house. The grounds were immaculately kept. Renaldo did a wonderful job at keeping everything outside perfect. The inside of the house was immaculate. Jackie does an amazing job at keeping the house clean and perfect. She is very helpful and fun to talk to. Jackie is amazing!! The kitchen is huge and setup perfect. All of the bedrooms were amazing with their own special touches. They were all clean and huge! Each one had great water pressure in the showers with hot water and there was bottled water on each floor. (The only exception is the small 5th bedroom) 4 of the five bedrooms are perfect for couples and 2 are great for a family to stay in. The only complaint someone could have about the bedrooms is the 5th bedroom. It is very small and only has a double bed. There is no bathroom or view for that bedroom. This didn't bother us at all because we only had 4 couples and we didn't use that bedroom. That is the only thing I would say be careful with- the 5th bedroom. Other than that the house is perfect, clean and amazing. Jackie and Renaldo do an excellent job of keeping the house and grounds clean and Jackie is great to talk to and she is willing to help in anyway she can. Our vacation was perfect.

We'll Be Back!
A guest from Haymarket, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
Our family vacation was both fun and relaxing thanks to the wonderful staff at the house. Reynaldo spent extra time with our grandsons showing them how he cut open coconuts to drink the water. His groundskeeping was fantastic and he managed to keep the pool and beach spotless each day. The cook staff, Lucy and Norma, are nothing less than phenomenal. The meals were prepared professionally and always on time - and they tasted great. Always had left-overs for late night munchies. Jackie did a great job keeping the inside of the house clean and comfortable, she was even willing to do a few loads of laundry for us. All-in-all we had just what we hoped for; well needed family time to relax and enjoy the beautiful waters and weather of Cozumel.

A guest from Castle Pines, CO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
We had a group of 12. Everyone could find plenty to do. There is snorkeling right in from of the Villa. The kayaks and Volleyball court were used everyday. Jackie is wonderful and took care of anything we needed. The cooks Lucy and Norma made amazing meals that exceeded our expectations. This place has something for everyone. We had a great time and would recommend to anyone who enjoys the beach.

Bday get together
A guest from Taft, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in April, 2013
Villa Yak'alil was nearly the ideal rental for our April birthday get together. The house is large enough that our party of 12 never felt crowded. Jackie took care of any problem we had including cleaning the kitchen every day.The internet service was fast enough for to keep current on her latest blogs. Our kids enjoyed the two kayaks and I kept the bbq pit smoking. My only complaint is that the shallow water extends too far from shore for the dive boat to pick you up in front of the place. Instead we met at a pier just down the road. Each bedroom has it's own air conditioning controls and kept everyone cool. Plenty of hot and cold water in the bathrooms. We had trouble with one shower head and it was fixed as soon as I pointed it out. I highly recommend trying this place out. We plan to return next April.

Fantastic. Villa yak is one of the very best. Jackie and the rest of the help around the house were super. The sunsets were incredible . The house is right on the beach with greate snorkeling and dive boats came very near because it was great. Best location on island. Very quiet and just minutes from town. Villa yak deserves all 5 stars. I just hit the button wrong if it shows less You won't find a better place.

This was an amazing vacation, the home was absolutely beautiful and went far above what we could have even imagined. Jackie took care of the home spotlessly and went far above her duties, she was very helpful, contacted taxi's for us, helped us know different things to do and where to go, she always made sure everything was clean. We loved her. This vacation spot is wonderful. We would highly recommend this home to others. We hope that we can return sometime. It was amazing!!!

Great house, beautiful views
John S. from Reston, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in July, 2012
Overall the house was incredible, if I were to be very picky I'd say it was obvious they put big bucks into buildig a quality structure, but it seemed odd to have such a nice place with some cheap fixtures like faucets - which were surrounded by beautiful tile. Again, that's being really picky and does not take away from the overall experience. The location was great - very close to some good snorkeling locations; you must have a car/moped something to get to town and back. Get the cook service, it was delicious and they clean everything for you - you'll get spoiled and love it too :)

Villa Yak a Lil has Everything for a Beach Vacation
Anne G. from Omaha, NE recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2012
Once a year we take a week to go diving in Cozumel. We have tried everything from traditional hotels and dive resorts to waterfront condos, but Villa Yak a Lil surpassed all previous stays. The villa is situated on a private beach away from the sounds of busy hotels or other properties.We were taken by the courteous staff, the spaciousness of the home, the ample resting areas by the pool or shady hammocks. Each room has a beautiful view of the beach each with its own balcony or one nearby.We can't wait to visit villa Yak a Lil on our next visit and would highly recommend it for a group of friends or family traveling to Cozumel.

Had nine wonderful days in this huge, comfortable house. Cook service was exceptional, Jackie, the housekeeper couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. Weather was perfect, beach and snorkeling so convenient. Room for everyone, spacious bathrooms, spotlessly clean. Any problems solved by Miss Jackie. Edgar, the cook went out of his way to accomodate picky eaters and vegans. Garage space for your vehicles, games and cards available. Large porch and deck and spotless infinity pool. Once in a lifetime trip for our three generations. Would return in a heartbeat.

End of Summer Vacation
Nidia A. from Humble, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011
We stayed at the villa with 3 other families for a total of 16 people and had a great time! We were a little worried that we may get tired of each other or of the loud noises made by the little ones (4 were 3 years old) but the house is big enough that you can be separated from everyone and have some me time. We paid for the cook service and we bought food for the lunch part of the day. However, we had so much good food left over from breakfast and dinner sometimes that we would not even need to make lunch. Wish we would have known how much food we were going to have so we wouldn?t have bought so much lunch items. Edgar, the cook, and his wife and niece (his assistants) did a wonderful job cooking delicious meals! The set our tables, brought the meals to the table, cleared the table and always left the kitchen spotless. We all gained some weight while there I?m sure and everyone, even the kids, ate all their food! I miss the cooked meals already. The house itself was great and roomy. Jackie was very helpful offering us tips on where to go and telling us to watch out for the taxi-mafia. A taxi cab (4ppl max) from the villa to downtown is 150 pesos, a taxi van (8ppl max) is 300 pesos. They?ll try to give you different prices each time but these prices are the norm. She did a great job cleaning the house. The kids really enjoyed the pool and didn't go to the beach that often. I would have like more beach area, less rocks and for the house to be a little closer into town. The cab drivers try to hustle you out of money and you always get different quotes even when going to the same spot. Make sure to be firm on what you're paying and ask up front what the price is. We did see a crocodile one day to the left of the house. We used the kayak the first 2 days there but after we saw the crocodile we were a little apprehensive and stuck to the right side of the beach. The hammocks were super handy and some of us even took naps in them. We vis

Two Birthdays and a Wedding
Danton H. from Abbeville, Louisiana recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011
We had a group of 15 friends at the villa for the week. We were celebrating a 40th and 45th birthday for two of the ladies and the place was so beautiful that a couple that was getting married in the states in January decided to go ahead and get married there at the villa instead. We had a really great time and after the week was over it was hard to leave our home in Cozumel behind. The only comment I heard that may be improved on is that a few of the people said that their mattress was uncomfortable (hard). This was not my opinion though, I slept in the third floor bedroom and it was great. There is a beautiful roof top veranda but there is no furniture on it to sit out and enjoy sunrises with a cup of coffee and sunsets with a glass of wine, it needs to be furnished so that you don't have to bring the furniture from the bedroom outside. We would definately recommend this villa to anyone looking for a place in Cozumel, in fact we did just that to a couple that we met at the airport on the way home. LIFE IS GOOD!!!

WOW....what better way to spend Christmas. When we (16 adults & 1 baby) arrrived at the house it was so much more than I had expected. The house itself is beautiful and spacious. The ocean view is breath-taking. We took full advantage of the cook service and the meals were wonderful. It was great to wake up and know that someone was downstairs cooking breakfast. Suppertime was just as good, when at the end of the day we all gathered around the tables. We rented bicyles for the week, went scuba diving from San Franscico beach, twice, and also visited Chichen Itza. Jackie was wonderful in so many ways and helped with our spanish translating skills. Thank you "At Home in Cozumel" we had a wonderful time :)

Jackie was amazing, 5 stars doesn't begin to accurately charectorize how helpful, attentive and kind she was. Anything we needed she provided and gave us ideas and resources we hadn't thought of. Our stay wouldn't have been the same without her.

WOW!!!!!

I have to say you never know exactly what you might be getting yourself into when booking a vacation home online. But I have to say that this house was everything they said it would be and more. From the moment we arrived we treated like family. Jackie who lives on the property and takes care of the house was so amazing. She will make your stay in Cozumel a better experience. She kept the house so clean and was always there when we needed her. There were 10 of who stayed at the house. We had more than enough room. One of the highlights of the trip was our cook Luis. I highly recommend having a cook for the house. Everyday he was there bright and early making us an amazing breakfast. Then would be back at anytime you wanted to make us dinner. He always had such a big smile on his face. ALso many of us were diving on the trip. There is a pier within walking distance of the house that your dive company could pick us up at and drop us off at after the dive. So to sum it up. We all had such a blast staying at Villa Yak'all.We will be back there again very soon.

Paradise minus appliances
Courtney L. from Greencastle, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2008
The house was beautiful and our group of eight loved it. Jackie and Javier were very helpful and nice. Jackie especially was at our beck and call for any problems or concerns. HOWEVER, we were very disappointed to arrive to an ice maker that made about 10 cubes of ice a day and a freezer that took a day to make a tray of cubes. It cost use about $20 just to get some bags of ice to use the fist day since we didn't rent a car and had to send for it. Additionally, the oven didn't work at all. Only one side of the toaster worked, but they did replace that within a day or two. About halfway though our stay the microwave also broke and wasn't replaced until the day we were leaving. The roof leaked in several places and a fan in the larger of the main floor bedroom makes a banging noise that makes sleep difficult. All in all, I think we just had some bad luck. We certainly made the best of it and still had a wonderful vacation, but all of the problems certainly made things inconvenient. I think the ice situation should have been taken care of without a charge to us.

Best vacation ever

Stayed for 7 days in September, 2008
I love Cozumel! Locals are fantastic and their is so much to see and do. This is my 2nd booking with at home in Cozumel & both have exceeded my expectations. The Yak Allil was fabulous, I'm amazed at how cheap it is to rent a house of the caliber!!!

Perfect place to spend a family vacation!
A guest from Salem, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2008
The pictures on the website do not adequately show how great this house is. It far exceeded our expectations. The rooms are spacious. The view is terrific. Jackie, the caretaker, is wonderful and does a great job of keeping the house in order and answering any questions. We had 3 families and 2 babies and had a most memorable vacation. We would love to come back.

Property Manager Response:
Thanks for the perfect score. We tried and tried to get pictures that do the house justice but that's past our skill level. It was always a great house, but the new owners have taken it to an even higher level. Come back real soon.

Villa Yak alil

Stayed for 7 days in March, 2008
We are already talking about renting "our" villa again next year. It was a wonderful experience. Much cleaner (I'm fussy)and much more beautiful, than I thought it would be. Jackie was wonderful and was very helpful with hiring boats and giving advice.

We have found how and where we want to travel to Mexico going forward. Staying at Villa Yak'alil was truly a memorial experience. The house is fantastic and Yackie makes it all the better. Make sure to do the cooks service and we recommend Edna! We'll be back for many years to come! Cannot wait until next year!!

Two Weeks in a Palace
A guest from Smithfield, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in January, 2008
This is an extrodinary home - every bedroom is fantastic! Two weeks of Mexican food was a bit much - perhaps every other day would have been better. Our ccok was great, the house well managed. MUST get the ice maker fixed!!! Phone to US did not work, internet very, very slow. Property landscaping was very well maintained on daily basis, house was kept very clean daily. This property is a great value for its cost and can sleep 8 adults very easily plus a few kids.

GREAT HOUSE

Great place to stay with family or friends. I wished I could have stayed longer than a week. I would recommend this house to my friends. You definetly need to rent a car but it is very easy to get around Cozumel.

Lisa S. from Muskego, WI does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2007
Overall, it wasn't worth the money. Way overpriced for this property, and unfortunately it's changed my opinion of At Home in Cozumel as well as this type of vacation. I have been renting vacation homes specifically on Cozumel from 1 to 4 times per year for the past 12 years. I am a dedicated, repeat customer of At Home in Cozumel. This property was not worth the money. The house itself was beautiful and housekeeping was spotless. But, sparsely furnished and the pool was way too small for the property. I understand it had undergone a change of ownership just before our arrival, but then I believe our stay should have been discounted if it meant the house was't up to par. I also believe that repeat, good customers should be given a discount or some other perks. There's way too much competition for my vacation dollar and I can do better elsewhere. Case in point - I've been back to Mexico on 2 vacations since this one and just booked another - all not through At Home in Cozumel. These houses have outpriced themselves. I've seen the rental prices go higher and higher, but the properties and services are the same or lower. If you and the owners are satisfied with your customer base and rates of return, then no need to change...congrat's. If not, there are things you could do to improve. For those owners who really want to rent and make money, I hope they know that they could be doing much better.

The view was spectacular, the house lovely, the caretaker and her son delightful.
Edward M. from Bayport, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 9 days in March, 2007
We had a very nice stay and became quite taken with the caretaker and her son. They were just delightful. We did have a series of electrical and redridgeration problem that made things a little tense but the caretaker Jackie worked hard to resove these as did the property manager.
