Cozumel Island condo description
The Villas of Cozumel Paradise - Condo - 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom
Why stay 'near the Beach', 'have a view of the Beach' or 'see the Beach over other buildings' ?? -- This building is DIRECTLY on the Beach. Enjoy this rare view that few other places can offer you.
Located near beautiful Chankanaab Park on the West Shore of the Island and just 10 minutes from the Town of San Miguel is CASA Vista del Mar and Casa del Faro in the condominium complex called 'COZUMEL PARADISE'. Each Condo can have up to six guests, or host a 'party for 12' by booking the ENTIRE BUILDING!
This is one of the most special units in the complex, it is located directly on the waterfront and no other buildings or obstructions block your prime view of the Ocean. It is less than 150 feet from the water's edge! Each unit has a spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom layout that also includes a fully equipped kitchen, living area and an easily accessible patio with table and chairs.
Spectacular views and beautiful sunsets from the living area, master bedroom and balcony. Panoramas from the private rooftop are unbelievable. Bring a good book and relax or bring your binoculars and watch the dive boats and cruise ships glide by.
The direct beachfront has some of the best snorkeling in Cozumel. Scuba diving can be arranged through many dive shops to pick you up at our beach!
Maid service is complementary midweek and a washer & dryer is supplied for your use. A private cook, babysitter, and many activities are available at additional charge through our local representative.
Our Personal Service starts with your arrival to the condo with a complete tour of the facility and instruction on the use of all amenities.
A $500.00 deposit will secure your dates immediately. This deposit is refundable at the conclusion of your trip. Once your dates are decided, I recommend you immediately secure your dates as these Beach Villa's are in high demand!
Payment is by Personal check or Money Order. Final payment must be made at least 30 days before arrival. An e-mail will be sent confirming your dates and deposit received.
All rates and transactions are in US Dollars.

Great Place to stay
Great Place to stay
We stayed at the beach house and it was great. During the day, we hung out by the pool and on the beach. We snorkeled right off the shore. At night, we went into town or walked to one of the nearby restaurants. Staying at the beach house was convenient, relaxing, and quiet.

Owner response: A guest who find solace in the peace and quiet of our secluded Beach is what we hope for. Having great restaurants nearby for a walk along the ocean front is an added plus.
This was our first trip to Cozumel and we will return! The condo was everything you would need for a relaxing stay on the beach with easy access to the pool and the beach - both are right our your front door. We brought our own snorkel gear and I would recommend that to anyone staying here. The shore snorkeling from the beach is s good as any on the island. From our location there were a couple of restaurants but the drive to town was easy as well. We found the entire islnd to be very accessible. Details: The unit: Small living area and kitchen but enough for our five people (2 teens and 3 adults) to sit and eat comfortably. We used the kitchen for breakfast and lunch most days and cooked dinner twice. Everything we needed was there for us. Most of the time we were outside however. Being on the ground level provided easy access to all the spaces outside. Three bedrooms had nice space and comfortable beds. Lots of beach towels provided. Maid service was standard once mid stay and they did a nice job. The complex: We liked that this was a smaller complex ( approximately 13 units?). The pool and beach areas were never crowded - chairs were always available - and we had great conversations with people around the pool. It felt like "home". The pool and beach area were clean and maintained daily. The beach was beautiful. There is sand and beach chairs for easy relaxation and sunbathing or sandcastle buildin if that's what is important to you. As you enter the water you navigate a little coral so water shoes wuld be recommended if you aren't wearing flippers. as I stated above, the snorkeling was also great. We snorkeled over to the edge of Chankanaab and saw the Dolphins in their pen. Favorites from the week: Punta Sur park - It was fun to see the crocodiles and climb the lighthouse. $6 admission to go this far and $6 more for each adult to go on to the beach. Beautiful beach but the snorkeling was better/easier at the condo. Get there on the early end so you beat the cruise traffic. Rasta's restaurant - right next to park entrance, tables on the beach, a great place to view to beautiful waters at the end of the island while having lunch. Playa Azul - A "beach club/hotel" north of town. For the cost of drinks you can hang out here for the day, swim and snorkel. North of town.The snorkeling was equal to condo. Kintas Restaurant - YUM! Beatiful garden atmosphere and GREAT food!

Best vacation EVER!!!
Best vacation EVER!!!
We loved the Condo! Awesome views, great snorkling. PERFECT for a family vacation, close to town but far enough away from the tourista - HA! Rented a car for the whole week which allowed us to explore the entire island. Highly recommend Luis Canal next door for scuba/dives. Had a wonderful time and look forward to staying there again. Thank you for allowing us to stay at PARADISE.

Owner response: We always recommend a car to explore our beautiful Island. When our guests are happy we know we have done our job well. Jeff's comments are greatly appreciated!
Our family of six had lots of room to spread out! The beds are wonderful. Our kids basically lived in the pool and I went snorkelling at LEAST once a day (brought my own gear)! Lots of fish and critters to see, right off the beach. We walked to Chankanaab for a wonderful day, there. We rented a car so we could tour the island - another great day trip! The rest of the week was pool, beach and ocean! Having a great view of the pool, right from in the condo, while I made lunch, meant the kids could keep right on swimming! If we didn't feel like cooking, Uva's next door had great lunch. Our friends were in the upper unit so we had the whole building to ourselves! If you're looking for a condo to rent in Cozumel, you can't find a better place! And Hippie Bob and Diana were so friendly, too. We were lucky to be there at the same time! I would definitely recommend this place!

Bob's place is exactly as described, clean, comfortable, and with all the amenities of home... New Yorkers can be somewhat tough to please... But I left totally satisfied and wanting to come back soon... I spent seven wonderful days here... My typical day would start in the morning with my coffee next to the pool, or if I was truly energetic at sunrise, I would walk the additional 25 feet to the ocean and prop my beach chair right next to shore... around lunchtime I'd walk five minutes down the beach to a small restaurant and have some wonderful mexican food and wonderful margeritas... In the evenings it was into San Miguel which is quaint, unassuming, and full of great restaurants... The snorkeling right off the beach was fantastic... and a dive boat stops right next door if you want to go out deep for diving or snorkeling on the reefs... which in Cozumel are some of the best in the world... Wonderful....

Awesome location for your Ironman Stay!
Awesome location for your Ironman Stay!
What an outstanding property you have! The location is about a quarter mile from Chankanaab Park. It was incredible to walk out the door and snorkle, dive, kayak, etc! The three bedroom unit was spacious and very clean. It was great to have the option of cooking for ourselves or sampling one of the local restaurants. We would definately reccomend the unit and especially the condo complex!
