“Fantastic Stay at Villa Adioso”

Where to even begin? Our entire trip was fantastic and exceeded every expectation we had. And it all started with Villa Adioso and Jay Levine. Jay's home, Villa Adioso, is wonderful. We honestly couldn't have chosen a better home.

Our group was made up of two couples. The home was perfect for us. One bedroom and one bath on the main floor with the kitchen and open living space and the other bedroom and bath on the second floor.

There is a total of 3 outdoor living spaces. On the 1st floor, you'll find a large porch off of the living room with a plunge pool (super refreshing), multiple seating options and a set of stairs that lead to the Caribean sea. Walk up to the second-floor and you'll see the balcony with seating available (the second floor is also where the washer and dryer are located). If you go up another set of stairs, you'll run into a large patio that takes up the entire 3rd floor. There are 3 hammocks too. The views are amazing! We had cocktails on all three floors, just about every day. :)

The house is so safe, centrally located and just flat out awesome. We did rent a golf cart which was great to get around the island. However, the north part of the island (downtown) is within walking distance. There are also cabs everywhere to pick anyone up.

So that's the house, the best thing that the house comes with is Jay. He's such a great resource and is always just a phone call away. He sent us recommendations prior to the trip, set us up with a driver at the airport and answered all of our questions and needs while we were staying in the house.

I was hesitant to write a review because then everyone would start booking at Villa Adioso, which would mean more competition for us. Just kidding ;). Seriously, rent this house! You won't regret it. We'll be back soon.

“This villa is teriffic!”
Reviewed 26 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Our group was 2 adult couples, looking for a relaxing tropical getaway. The villa is elegant but not pretentious, and we felt at-home from the moment we opened the gate to the private courtyard. The interior was spacious, spotless, and tastefully decorated. The location is on a narrow part of the island, and the breeze was so wonderful that we didn't turn on air conditioning even in 85 degree/90%humidity. The Caribbean side of Isla Mujeres is rocky with a bit of sand, so the spacious deck and the cool plunge pool were particularly nice. Don't expect to sit home and watch TV--that's not part of the deal (we considered it a real plus!).
We walked downtown sometimes, and hailed a cab others. Golf Cart rental at $45US for 24 hrs is a great option for cruising around the island, although we decided a taxi was more economical for routine trips.
Certainly hope we have an opportunity to visit again.

“Nice House, Good Location, Wonderful Host”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My husband and I rented this house on our first ever trip to IM. We scoured the internet for weeks and this rental seemed to fit the bill. I emailed Jay to inquire about dates and he called me within 15 minutes to let me know the house was available. I thought that was pretty good customer service! We spoke several times over the next couple of weeks and he was full of knowledge about where to eat, what to see, what to do, etc.

I'll start off by saying that this house is in a great location. It's away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, but easily within walking distance. It was fun to sit on the second floor deck and watch the traffic go by as locals and tourists transported themselves from one end of the island to the other. There's a pecking order of sorts between trucks, taxis, motorcycles, scooters and golf carts and it's very entertaining to watch.

Privacy is a major factor when we are choosing a vacation rental, as it's always just the two of us and we want to relax without having to worry about disturbing our neighbors or being disturbed. I have to say, the first floor patio area, which houses the pool, wasn't quite as private as we'd hoped for. The homes on either side of Villa Adioso are literally inches away and the pool and deck area are quite visible to the neighbors.

The kitchen was adequate, including plenty of plates, pots and pans, glassware, silverware and utensils. There was also plenty of bottled water, with a handy pump system to get the water out of the bottle for cooking or making coffee. I'd suggest buying spices, aluminum foil and ziplock baggies or cheap containers for leftovers, if you plan on cooking at the house. We bought paper towels and toilet paper, but didn't end up using them since the house already had them stocked.

The housekeeper stopped by on our fourth day in the house and asked when we wanted the house cleaned. We told her to come back the next day, which she did. Since it was raining pretty hard, we didn't leave the house while she cleaned, just tried to stay out of her way. She did a very thorough job. My husband knows enough Spanish to get by, but she knew virtually no English, so communicating was a little difficult, but we got by with hand signals, nods and smiles.

We slept in the upstairs bedroom the first few nights, then moved downstairs for the remainder of our stay. The A/C works fine on both floors and we slept very comfortably. I never could figure out how to get the hot water to come on in the upstairs shower, but the downstairs was a breeze. I just turned the top knob, waited a few minutes, and voila, hot water.

My husband's favorite place to relax was on the third floor deck, underneath the huge palapa. You can pretty much see the entire island from up there. The steep, winding stairway to get up there is not for the faint of heart, but the view is worth it!

We didn't rent a golf cart until a few days into our trip and it made it so much more enjoyable. When you rent this house, Jay will probably set you up with William, a Cancun cab driver, who will give you a ride from the airport to the ferry, and vice versa. William has family and a golf cart on the island and offered his cart to us at a discounted rate. He personally delivered the golf cart one day when he had business to tend to on the island. He is a very sweet man and we will definitely use him again on a return trip.

As can happen anywhere, anytime, and especially on a small island, sometimes the internet goes out. Jay informed me before we got there that there were issues at the house with the wifi. We arrived early Saturday afternoon and did not have wifi at the house until Wednesday evening. I know we're supposed to relax and unplug on vacation, but most of us need to touch base back home with the kiddos, check a few work emails, etc. Having said that, we simply took our phones with us when we went out and asked whatever bar or restaurant we were at for their wifi password, which they were very generous with.

There are pros and (small) cons in this review. I try to be as honest as I can be, since that's what I'm looking for when I read reviews when I'm planning a vacation. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this vacation rental and I would definitely recommend using William for your transfers and golf cart needs. The people of Isla are very friendly and we felt safe at all times, day or night. Oh, and the food on the island is amazing!
