Airbnb Cozumel: the 11 pretty homes to rent for a perfect vacation

Whether you are looking for a home for your short vacation or a long “workation”, my selection of the best 13 Airbnb in Cozumel and amazing VRBO apartments and villas, will help you choose among so many incredible options.

I picked my favorite ones by style and location to offer a variety of options for different budgets.

Cozumel is a charming island, mostly renowned among the diving community and as one of the main stops for Caribbean cruises.

However, its charm and beauty attract all sorts of travelers, coming to the island for a day trip from Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya or for a relaxing week and, inevitably fall in love, as I did.

In this post, instead, I am going to talk about the amazing accommodation options that you will find in Cozumel on the VRBO platform as Airbnb has interrupted the collaboration with bloggers, and they have raised their prices outrageously.

Disclaimer – I apologize if the title says Airbnb but I couldn’t change it otherwise you would have not found me :). I assure you on VRBO you will find even more gorgeous places. See what I have found for you!

In a rush? Check out my top selection

For a big family or friends retreat: Beachfront Las Brisas
For a couple or solo getaway isolated from everything: Stingray villa Cozumel
Luxury family vacation: Oceanfront Cozumel Home with Private Pier + Pool!
Solo vacation or workation: Oceanfront Condo

What some of the previous guests say:

Place is fantastic!!! Owners are even better!! Great location in town, but very quiet and not too far from the water. We rode our bikes everywhere. Everything was immaculately clean, room, pool, etc. Close to shopping, bars, etc.

I really enjoyed my stay here, the hosts were welcoming and informative and were very flexible around my checkout which was much appreciated! I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to explore Cozumel on foot, it’s right near the ferry!

“Loved our stay on Cozumel and am so glad we chose Stingray Villa. Great location, and hosts. Great room that was clean, and cozy. I will definitely return! ☺️ We really liked that they provided drinking water in the room & recycled it. Thanks!”

What previous guests said

Great location and property. Host was very helpful with communication and information. Would definitely return”.

“Residencias Reef never fails to impress. The grounds are immaculate and the units are clean and well maintained. Susan is extremely responsive and accommodating to her guests. We consistently rent here and are returning guests to this unit. We highly recommend for a relaxing, enjoyable respite.”

“I booked Susan’s condo on very short notice for a quick solo getaway. This condo was a spectacular choice. It was exactly as you see it in the photos. Large outdoor balcony with a double water view. It overlooks the pool with the ocean just beyond. Soooo relaxing to sit out there and simply unwind. I ate most of the meals, which I was able to cook in the well-stocked kitchen, and took in the sunsets out there.”

“We stayed for 8 nights for diving and relaxation. Everyone associated with the property from hosts to the cleaning staff were absolutely wonderful and a pleasure to work with. The dock was perfect for the dive boat for pick up and drop off. We shall definitely return for our next Cozumel dive trip. Don’t think twice! Book the trip. You will not be disappointed.

What other guests have to say

We had a wonderful time at Tito’s Paradise! The location was perfect, the place was clean and comfortable, the view and the snorkeling were wonderful, and it was an easy walk to town. Best of all waa Spela, who was so helpful and responsive. She had great advice and contacts for getting around to doing the things we wanted to do. A wonderful host and a great stay!

Homey and cozy place….. near downtown and an awesome snorkeling area if you are an avid fan…. thanks to eloisa for being always ready to help…. she helped a lot…. the staff are all super nice… thanks for making our stay Amazing….

The building itself has been renovated a few years back. The grounds and rooms are clean and some units are bright if you pick the right one. Some tucked back with little outdoor space. Not lavish by any means. The pool was not up to par on this trip so we couldn’t use it, but hopefully, they got it fixed. Eloisa was a PURE PLEASURE to deal with and made check-in and out a breeze. Her kindness and friendly personality were a highlight of our stay. The pool/sand area could use a few more chairs but is comfortable on a whole. We’re in the water most of the time so not a huge issue. We come to snorkel – oh and dine out – which is an easy mile walk to the plaza.

This was hands down the nicest property we have stayed at in Cozumel! The house is beautifully designed and close to everything you need. The private pool is amazing and the neighborhood is quiet. We will definitely be returning to this property.

Lots of room and amenities. Had fun sitting by and in the pool. Great relaxing time.

Loved the house. Although it was just the two of us, this would be great for several family members too. Beautiful and clean.
