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.

Ladder access to the ocean makes snorkeling off the property easy as pie!
Both Villa Ranas and its sister house Villa Iguanas can be rented together at a discount for groups of up to 30 guests.

"Highly recommended!
Our family of about 30 stayed at the villas this past weekend. The view and scenery from the villas is beautiful, about 15 minutes away from downtown and within a short drive to the beaches. Sunsets are spectacular! Swimming and snorkeling is accessible right behind the villas and there's plentiful sea life to look at. The caretakers onsite and cleaning crew are very friendly and eager to assist. We loved our stay and were very happy with the accommodations. "

"Nice house. Good location
Had a very nice time at this location. The only challenge was that there’s no air conditioning in the communal space is. Air-conditioning is only in the bedrooms. This did lead to some discomfort at the dining table. But all in all it was a great trip. There’s no beach at the actual site which was beneficial to us. We swim every night under the loan because we were able to access the water without having to walk over coral or was nice snuggling each day right off of the latter. On site staff was very does cost about $30 to get a taxi into town. We only did this once is everything we wanted was on the property. Going to town just put you in the masses of the cruiseship crowds. I would recommend this property if you’re OK with no air-conditioning. We also did not have hot water the entire week. "

"Scuba Guys Stay April/May 2018
Overall we enjoyed the property, great location and views especially very convenient for us divers as we were picked up and dropped off at pier right next door. Would do more to keep ants out of kitchen common area.. Also make sure a broom and dust pan are available to guests, for price, it would be nice if paper towels some coffee etc be included when first checking in."

"March 2018
We rented both Ranas and it's sister house Iguanas and they were both excellent houses to stay in. My family had a blast and we would go back. "

"Good location - it worked, but not exactly what we expected
The house is in a very good location. The overall space is good. Room layout is a bit odd - though it will sleep a lot of people, you have to be ready to share quarters. The property management is very helpful. The house itself needs some deep cleaning and TLC. "

"Perfect place for a reunion!
We rented both the Ranas and the Iguanas. See my complete review under the Iguanas details."

"Los Amigos Ski Club Scuba Trip
We had both Ranas and Iguanas. Excellent properties with outstanding location and access to the pier for dive boats. The contracted cook service was outstanding! Most of us were diving while the house staff was tending to rooms, so we never really saw them. As mentioned in the Iguanas review; many of us thought the beds were more comfortable than our previous trip (2012). Assuming new mattresses may have been there? Our trip ended on a Sunday, and with no new tenants coming in this day, or room service, our At Home in Cozumel rep (Annette) was very accommodating allowing us to hang out in the Villa a couple extra hours prior to departing for the airport. Much appreciated!"

"9 days in paradise
28 of us stayed at both villas for 9 days for a family reunion and I must say It was priceless. The staff are very kind and will do anything for you. Our rooms were keep very clean and tidy the whole time. They do work really hard to make your stay welcome. I just wish I knew more Spanish to talk to them more. Ruben would even get us coconuts to sip on or mix drinks with. The property was is very good condition just like the pics, . The buildings were beautifull some of the patio doors didn't work well but that was just a small issue not even worth mentioning. Everything else in the buildings worked great for us. We cooked all meals there and they are stocked with all necessary items you would need. Including a big coffee pot,blender,toaster,two fridges,microwave. Perfect for our group. It's a little ways from town but we knew that and had rental cars as we were on the move everyday anyhow. If you did want a taxi to town they are close by and about 20 u.s. Dollars to town. Snorkelling from the property is quite good if you go by the pier there is hundreds of fish, if the pier is to busy just go along shore in front of villa and it's still very good not as many fish but still great for out your front door. My wife and I had the owners suite and its breath taking views will be missed, from our patio you can see for miles. You can see xcaret on the mainland and Tulum then get on the roof and you can see even further a great place for morning coffee and viewing the best sunsets you could ever ask for. I think everyone in our whole group would recommend these places in a heartbeat,they are huge comfortable and spotless. Annette from at home in Cozumel was easy to deal with and answered a ton of questions during or booking process sent us more pics of inside villas at our request. She will be highly recommended by anyone in our group. Thanks to all the staff that made this trip possible and the onsite staff that made us feel at home in Cozumel......"

"Location is awesome!
Located about 15 minutes out of town. Right on the water. Spacious and well thought out. A dock 25 yards away for scuba pick up. On site staff is helpful."

"A week at the Palace
Villa was spacious for group of 11. Housekeepers did a good job cleaning. Alex the chef made the week most special, food delicious, even made alterations for our picky eater. Loved location on water and access to beach. Needed improvements: The master bedroom bed had extra padding which needs to be added to all the hard beds. Refrigerator should be replaced, barely chilled drinks. A second frig. should be added for a villa that holds this many guests, or smaller ones in each unit. Villa has peeling/worn off paint on entry doors, worn out, faded upholstery, missing art work, at least remove nails and patch holes. Exterior stucco is molded and needs power washing . Landscaping is so overgrown that only pockets of view can be seen, totally unlike the web pictures.
Directions need to be revised, the driveway is right after the scuba diver statue next door. The wall is white stucco, not brick and the landscaping has grown covering the Villa sign. We were lost for a good while in the dark. In spite of it all, we truly enjoyed our stay and would return with other guests if maintenance issues were tended to. It's the kind of place you would return to year after year. Also, Annette in customer service was most helpful. I would advise questioning the management before passing this one by. It was a stunning Villa at the time of the web pictures and could be again with a little TLC.

"Great for Groups!
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
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
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
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
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
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."

"May family vacation
Some problems with Air condition in one bedroom that caused some of our party to move and then move again. problem could have been handled better. management person not real helpful"

"Loved the Houses!
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!"

"Family Vacation
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!!"

"Fantastic Way to Bring the New Year In!
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!"

"Good location for a dive trip
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!
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."
Nov 30, 2010 - Ted D., Phoenix, AZ

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
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
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.

"Wonderful stay in cozumel.
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."
Dec 01, 2008 - Alin A., La Habra, CA

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. "

"Needs a facelift!
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."

"ranas sur.. we're talkin' HOT!!!!!
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!"

"I can not say enough about how beautiful and clean the property was. Luis and Ellie were OUTSTANDING and Victor could have not been anymore helpful and sweeter. I was married there and took 29 family, friends f7 days and it was the perfect place
The only complaint I would have is there is no ac in the kitchen or living room, but the ac does work wonderfully in the rooms"

"Villas Ranas Sur
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. "

Jul 06, 2008 - Darrin M., Tecumseh, OK

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."
