6 Br Oceanfront Villa with Pool. Cook Svce Option. Spectacular Views!

VILLA RANAS SUR is a sea front home where blue and white dance in perfect harmony.
A well know architect and sculptor succeeded in blending fine lines and large spacious areas in beautiful Mexican flavor combined with Mediterranean style. It is more than a home..it is a piece of art!!
And to compliment the fine architecture, the owner added his personal touch of decoration.

There is lots of space in the house. It is functional space with various terraces and balconies facing the blue Caribbean Sea.

The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 suites.
All bedrooms and suites are individually air-conditioned and there are 5 bathrooms plus one half bath. The common areas including the living room, dining room and kitchen in the villa are ventilated by ceiling fans and have been designed with cross ventilation in mind. Meticulous care and tasteful attention has gone into this house's desig.


A few hundred meters south of the house is the start of San Francisco Beach at the Sabor Hotel, a beautiful sandy beach accessible via a stone path cut in the jungle. On the way you'll find a pier (for dive pickup when weather prevents boat from docking at your home).
For beachcombers, this is one of the longest in Cozumel, stretching on for miles with only a few hotels and restaurants interspersed along this lightly trafficked area. Get lost on a sunset walk along this lovely beach.

Both Villa Ranas and its sister house Villa Iguanas can be rented together at a discount for groups of up to 30 guests.

Property Reviews 
Great for Groups!
Vera R. from Condesa, Mexico D.F. recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in March, 2014
We were a group of 20 and these two villas were perfect. Amenities were basic, but what more do you need when you have the Caribbean at your doorstep?! We rented both villas (I think it would be awkward only having one as they really are the same property) and so much deck and balcony space was scattered throughout they we rarely felt like such a large group. No hesitation in recommending these villas.

Family & Friends for a week
Lauren H. from Watertwon, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014
We had a great trip. We had a group of family and friends totaling eleven adults. There were more than enough beds for everyone! A word to the wise though, the mattresses were quite firm. One person in our group read similar reviews and brought her own extra padding and slept like a baby. The bedrooms are well air conditioned.The kitchen could use a little love though- we bought (and left in the house) a new sharp knife. Besides that one, they were all pretty dull. Additionally, there were no basics such as cooking oil and spices, as one might expect in such a vacation home. We easily remedied that situation though with a quick trip into town.The pool was great. The daily maid service was exceptional- very professional and polite. We couldn't have asked for a better week! Thank you At Home in Cozumel/VRBO!

Birthday celebration
Hilda A. from Las Vegas, NV does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 9 days in January, 2014
The houses need to be painted, furniture is worn, broken and very uncomfortable. We had missing bulbs in birth houses. Mattresses have visible mold, towels and sheets were stained and very old. The property lacks any luxury amenities--the pool is cold. There were chipped glasses and plates in both homes. The stoves needs to be replaced--no sufficient heat to cook. Maria and Ruben were fantastic and ver accommodating.

Great Location, terrible beds and misquotes
A guest from Tonganoxie, KS does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
Pros: The rental location was perfect and the Chef(Norma) and Staff were also great. This house was in walking distance to the San Francisco Beach, which was amazing. The rental property also had a ladder that went directly to into the Ocean where you could snorkel. Cons: The misquotes were ridiculous for this time of year. I?m not sure if they are this thick all year around, but we all came back looking like our body?s where put through a meat grinder. We used Deep Woods Off and that didn?t help. I think if the property management sprayed or had a few bug zappers around the house it would have helped. The beds were awful. They were like raised floors. They were so hard everyone had to take Alive in the morning just to be able to walk around that day. We didn?t get much sleep which defiantly had a negative impact on our fun each day. If the property management would fix the misquote problem and the raised floors they called beds, this house would have been perfect. Until then, I can?t recommend this house to anyone.

Ranas Sur
Lerryn T. from Coweta, OK does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
We rented two houses (Iguanas as well). We encountered severe leaking in multiple rooms in the house. Leaking was so bad one night it soaked through a computer case ruining a laptop, ipad, and work documents. There were also two valve issues in two bathrooms. The caretakers were quick to come clean up and fix the bathrooms but every day we encountered flooding.

Rental 4 of 5
Chris M. from Seattle, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012
I personally stayed in the Ranas/Iguanas sister houses and had a great time. The houses are well laid out with the rooms spread out enough to give everyone their personal space. We also had our wedding and reception here for 45 guests and it was the perfect space. The beds were a bit hard but it's Mexico, what do you expect. We have already penciled in our 5 year anniversary in the Ranas/Iguanas because we had that much fun. We had a few minor issues that were generally attended to very quickly and the staff was good.

We rented both the Villa Ranas and the sister property Villa Iguanas. Both were gorgeous, and exceeded our expectations. The only thing that might improve the property is an outdoor grill.Thanks for the memories!

Fantastic Way to Bring the New Year In!
A guest from Belton, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2011
Villa Ranas accomodations met the needs of 6 couples. The outside pool area and grounds offered a great place for everyone to gather. Although we were not on the beach we had wonderful access to the water and snorkeling. An additional benefit was that we had easy access to a dock and dive operation.Ruben and Maria were wonderful in taking care of our needs while there. The cook service was fantastic and would highly recommend it.Cristina was very helpful in answering all of our questions.Our group did not want to leave and look forward to coming back soon!

Family Vacation
A guest from Plymouth, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2011
My Husband and I took our 6 adult children and 2 of their spouses on a family vacation. We loved staying at the Villa because we could all be together yet, there was plenty of room for each to have privacy. Roberto and Maria were wonderful, always there to help and did a great job of keeping the villa clean. The website states there is a washer and dryer, however, they were not for guest use but Maria washed our clothes for us which was very nice. The accomodations were wonderful with the exception of a grill which would have been very useful as we did all our own cooking. We recommend the Villa Ranas Sur to everyone!!

Good location for a dive trip
Reviewed by: Robert B. recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011
The location and villa were pretty good. We had no problems and enjoyed ourselves. The property is large enough that you can get-away from the group when you want to. The only negatives were that the property could use a barbeque grill (even a cheap one!) and it needs a few more outside chairs / lounges.

Great stay. We will return!
Ted D. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in November, 2010
Our cook Lucy was fantastic. Her assistant Candi was very nice.Victor went out of his way to help us with anything we asked (even though he oversaw the Iguanas property) He was extremely kind and helpful. However, the one thing that I would like to see improve is the beds. They were very hard and not comfortable.

Dawn H. from Shelbyville, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in June, 2010
The dive boat was able to pick us up right near the property which was wonderful. We found out that if you walk to San Fransisco Beach after 5 you could use the water activities free. The pool was awesome. We really enjoyed that fact that there was not anyone staying in the Iguana Sur so we had the pool all to ourselves.

Villa Ranas with 13 family members
Connie H. from Woodland, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2010
The Villa Ranas is lovely and in a beautiful spot. The caretakers, Maria and Rober were very good and took great care of the house. We had a wonderful time. There were 2 things that need improvement. The beds are all incredibly hard and all the guests complained about that. Also, there is no BBQ. The addition of a gas grill would have been great. We would have cooked outside instead of in the house. Overall, this was a wonderful place to stay and I woudl recommend it

Gries stay at Villa Ranas
A guest from Denver, Colorado recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in November, 2008
Sign on front...TINY and difficult to find in the dark...esp since it is after Villa Iguanas and when driving, very difficult to see. Since our plane was 2 hours late, we got in after dark because we needed to stop at the store on the way.Kitchen needs some real updating and cleaning. Shelves are a little dirty, especially where high and the staff cannot reach. Refridge door shuts poorly. Purified water was handy and good.Toaster was broken and not replaced. Villa needs an electric juicer (places I have rented before had one). Knives were un-usable they were so dull...we bought some and left them. Bought extra glasses, as we needed larger ones...left them there. Phone information not clear. Website said no long distance calls, note inside the villa said free long distance calls to US and Canda? Which one?We didn't use it in either case. "Message" about not putting toilet paper in commode was behind the doors...which means some did not read it as they did not close this door when in the private suites. A dishwasher would be make this much nicer because we had to do dishes ourselves most of the time...breakfast dishes were generally the only ones for Maria to do.

Alin A. from La Habra, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2008
We did this trip primarily because we wanted to dive, but several people who came did not dive and rented scooters to go around the island. They had a great time too. This was a wonderful trip and the house made it worth it. My only complaint was that the pool was a little cold for my taste, but the house was impecable and we completely enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Marilyn H. from Dallas, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2008
overall... a really neat house, one you like to explore. BUT.. the lack of air conditioning in the greatroom, ie., living, dining, and kitchen is a major drawback. maybe it was a bad time when we arrived, maybe there was no breeze, the sun was hot, who knows? it was devastatingly hot. even fulvio, when he came in to greet us (a very nice gesture indeed)was wringing with perspiration when he left the house. i understand NOW as he explained, you never advertised the house was fully air-conditioned.. but in this day and age, really now.. it's just expected. it was so hot we could not, as our family from disparate parts of the country likes to do, cook meals there and gather in the living room. that was disappointing. otherwise, the staff was very nice. so was the place, but just too..darned..hot!

We had a wonderful time. We took our entire family! Twelve of us went. There was plenty of room. We loved it. Town was farther than I thought. Next time I would do my own grocery shopping. There is a large market in town.

Property Manager Response:
The owner of Ranas put a lot of thought and effort in maintinain his homel We're glad you liked it. Shopping for food in town is fun. But getting the cook service for a few days is fun too. Anyway, we hope to see you again soon.

This is an excellent property; large, light, and comfortable, with wonderful views. The snorkeling also was quite good. The location is excellent if you want a quiet spot about 15 minutes by car from down town, if you hire a cook (especially Isabelle), or if you like to cook yourself. The only potential drawback is the drive to town and restaurants. However, that was no drawback to us.

The photos on this property are misleading because it does not show that the entire home needs a new coat of paint and to be updated. The kitchen and appliances are old and need to be remodeled/replaced. The staff was nice and the cook service was great.

Harriet E. from Dallas, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2007
The house is lovely and the staff did what they could to make us comfortable, but there are repairs that were needed--doors that would not close, air conditioners that were too cold or too hot, shabby linen, no soap in the baths and no internet. There are ants everywhere, not enough table space for the family to sit for a meal. We had the feeling that the owner did not really care about the property and was only interested in getting money for it--withoug regard to the comfort of guests or their recommendation. No we would not recommend it. For ony a few hundred dollars it could be made much nicer--new sheets and towels, good soap in the baths, throw rugs at the doors, a working internet, better and more furniture, matching plates, wine glasses (we used plastic cups for wine at dinner!). The staff was helpful and friendly--although they had very limited English and no manager came around regularly. (I looked for her for several days--was told by the guards at the near-by place she managed also that she would be back in 'an hour'; in 'two hours' -- she never showed! The male manager we were supposed to have we never saw at all. Earlier in the trip before we had the problems with the internet, etc. She was helpful, but when she realized we would never be able to get the computer access promised, she disappeared.)

Getting to the water cold be made so much easier if steps like those several houses away were provided.

We had a wonderful time, but not because of the villa--almost in spite of it. My name is spelled Harryette and I would be happy to describe it to any prospective guest. If the changes are made (and I wrote about them immediately upon return) I would like to know about it so I could have a better feeling about the Villa.
