Cozumel Island condo description

Experience the luxury and breath-taking natural beauty of this Carribean tropical vacation retreat. Cercal del Cielo (Almost Heaven) sits on the 5th floor of the El Cantil Norte with a 50 ft terrace overlooking the crystal blue ocean surrounding Cozumel. With 4 master suites (1 king; 3 queens), each with its own private bath and TV; a fully stocked kitchen with GE appliances and granite countertops; Mexican marble dining room table which comfortably seat 8; living area furnished with soft white leather couches and satellite TV hook up, this property intends to pamper.

A quick elevator ride to the secured underground parking garage lets you out onto the beach/pool area where you will find palapas and lounge chairs nestled in the sand, 3 level infinity pool with hot tub; boat dock for pick up and drop off for all types of water activities providing a range of outdoor fun to entertain and/or relax.

For your safety and comfort property access is via an Onity key card along with a doorman 24/7; valuables can be stored in an in-room safe; there is daily maid service and a concierge service available in the office to help arrange activities in Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, on the Mexican mainland. And should you need to stay connected to home or the office, we offer FREE long distance to the US and Canada as well as DSL high speed and wireless internet connections next to the bar. Feel free to visit our website at www.oceanfrontrentalcozumelmexico.com for more information/photos.

What's absolutely wonderful about Cerca del Cielo is it's location. While you are right on the ocean in the Mexican Carribean, you are only a 5-15 minute walk to almost any activity in downtown San Miguel. Perfect privacy yet shopping, restaurants, bars/clubs, dive shops, vehicle rentals, and more are only minutes away. For food, libations, or last minute items you might have forgotten, Chedraui or MEGA, (Cozumel's Super Wal Marts) are right across the street. And if you're looking for a fine dining experience, you need go no further than Prima on the top floor or enjoy their room service.

Sometimes direct flights into the Cozumel airport can be difficult to find or are seemingly expensive. The Cancun airport offers a number of other options. Buses to Playa del Carmen leave every hour where you'll catch a ferry over to the island. With customs, expect an additional 3 hours travel time if you fly into Cancun.

Located just minutes south of downtown San Miguel, you are super close to shopping, dining, entertainment. Our private pier provides convenient pick up for scuba, parasailing, fishing, etc. For last minute items or if you feel like cooking there are 2 'mega' grocery stores within a block. For anyone in the mood for a good workout there is a gym 3 blocks away. My husband and I like to rent scooters on Sunday to hit the beaches and bars on the east side of the island - COCONUTS is a popular stop. For expresso lovers, there is a Starbucks at Punta Langosta a few blocks north. And with the recent opening of The Rejunvenation Clinic across the street and up a block, any number of cosmetic procedures by a licensed plastic surgeon are affordably easy to schedule.

                            What a fantastic vacation property! Our family of five had a wonderful time in this huge condo. Each of the four bedrooms are spacious, with very nice attached bathrooms. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need to cook, had we desired. The free breakfast upstairs at the restaurant was something we all looked forward to every day. It is not a cheap continental breakfast - you get a full, yummy breakfast of your choice, including bread and cinnamon rolls freshly made every morning. The pictures of the condo, while accurate, don't begin to show how beautiful the inside of the home is. It is so clean and nicely furnished, that we felt at home the second we walked in. Don't even bother bringing books or DVD's, as the owner has kindly left so many great ones for you to use while you are there. We so enjoyed the entire property. The pool is just lovely, the Jacuzzi nice and warm, and it is so convenient for the divers to get picked up and dropped off on the boat dock right on the property. By the way, the experienced divers in our family thought this was one of the best dive vacations they have ever had! The location of the condo is perfect. It is across the street from two great super-grocery stores, so you don't need to go far to stock up on all your needs. You can even bring the shopping cart right to your door from one of them! The condo is close to one of the two cruise ship ports, so you can spend your day and night watching cruise ships come and go. The shopping and restaurants are all within easy walking distance from the condo. You do not need to have a car to get to just about everything you want to do on the island. If you do want to spend the day at one of the famous beaches on the island, just jump in a taxi and you'll be there in minutes. We did rent a jeep for one day to go explore the southern and eastern side of the island, which was inexpensive and quite fun. There are Mayan ruins on the south end, and again in the middle of the island, that are worth seeing. Be sure to go to the Bob Marley restaurant/bar on the south end and he restaurant Coconuts on the east side is worth taking a trip to for sure. We also enjoyed the tequila museum - we learned so much on that stop, and got to experience lots of tequila tasting too. I can't say enough about the owner and property managers that worked with us to resolve any issues that we had. They were all delightful to work with.

                            Manager response: Mary - I can't thank you enough for such an incredible review. It appears as though you guys REALLY enjoyed the island - you did so many things. We've not even been to the tequila factory. Now we'll have to go in April. Thanks again for the kind words. Regards, Jean.

                            I've now stayed at Mike and Jean's condo twice, and am so spoiled I won't ever stay at another place again (until I purchase my own of course!) To start with, the condo is beautifully furnished, though not overdone, and therefore immediately feels like home. Inside, there's everything one might need to enjoy themselves, with a great selection of books, full internet access including a land-line with an 801 area code, and of course beautiful sunset views. Honestly my family spent most of our time on the huge back deck eating meals, reading, or sipping cocktails. The maid cleaned daily and did the laundry as well. We were always greeted by the doorman, and never worried about the safety of our belongings while we were away. Beware, it's such an enjoyable place, you will never want to leave... The pool and lounge area are perfect with the infinity edge trailing off into the horizon. It's an ideal place to relax after a day on the water. Speaking of which: Jean was also kind enough to get a reduced rate for us at Deep Blue Dive Center, and hands-down it's the best on the Island. They pick you up right at the dock at El Cantil, and then it's off in one of their fast boats with no more than 8 people (usually 4 or 5) to get some world-class diving in! If you have the sense to stay at Mike and Jean's you probably don't want to dive with anyone other than Deep Blue! When you're not diving, lounging poolside, or soaking up the scenery from the 5th floor, fear not: you happen to be in the PERFECT location to enjoy the rest of Cozumel. Sitting on the outskirts and easy walking distance of the touristic section of San Miguel; there's always something to do in that regard, but you're also across the street from the City Center and the Chedraui (a fantastic local grocery store). This means you can experience authentic Mexican culture and get a meal at a restaurant where nothing is in English, or just as easily dine where a maître d' attends to your every need. I'm convinced it really is the best condo on Cozumel!

                            Beautiful condo with an outstanding patio view of the Ocean and all the activity (Cruise ships, Scuba Divers, Snorkelers, and awesome sunsets). The condo is classically decorated with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. With our family of six, there were enough rooms and bathrooms for each person..the bathrooms and bedrooms are beautifully decorated and are spacious enough for all. Breakfast at La Prima Restaurant every morning was such a treat...the best on the Island, for sure! Everything is easily in walking distance and there is really no need for a car at all! We did, however rent a little Tiki, Tiki Car that so much fun and provided quite a few laughs as we drove around the Island. It is a mecca for Scuba Diving, and we really appreciated the professionalism and sites that Deep Blue had to offer. Next time we come, we'll definately do more Scuba Diving! Ramon will answer any questions you have and goes out of his way to accomodate any needs you have. Overall, it was a great way to start 2013 and we would highly recommend this condo at El Cielo to everyone!

                            The beauty of this four bedroom suite is absolutely wonderful. The large terrace overlooking the ocean and pool below is mesmerizing. The owners are super nice, and bend over backwards to accommodate your every need and provide abundant information about your arrival/stay. The location of this site is very close to town which makes for easy walks to all of Cozumel's wonderful restaurants, etc. With the grocery store just across the street it is easy to keep stocked on the bare necessities. I recommend this unit without reservation.

                            We had a fabulous time here. Touring, eating, snorkeling, eating, scuba, eating. The sunsets on the balcony were gorgeous. Birthday party on 27 Feb with Tres Leches cake - yum! Hospitality was wonderful. Bob used Deep Blue for diving - thanks for the recommendation. We tried all of the restaurants, too! Muchas Gracias.

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About: Our family currently resides in the mountains in northern Utah where we spend a lot of time outdoors: snow skiing, riding horses and Harleys, camping, walks with the dog. Having just retired in 2012 - my husband, Mike, as a decorated F-16 pilot and veteran of the wars in the Middle East; myself, Jean, as a Director of finance - we find ourselves doing a lot more travelling to see family, friends and new places. My husband introduced me to scuba diving in Cozumel in 2003 and we've been regulars ever since; even got all the kids certified so we could enjoy what the island had to offer as a family. Cerca del Cielo, 'Almost Heaven', is our second home.

                          Why Cozumel Island:
                          I fell in love with Cozumel on my first dive trip there. How could I not: fabulous diving, hospitable people, great weather, lots to do, terrific food AND I always felt safe. It had all the makings for a second home location. As the original owners we had the opportunity to 'put our own mark' on the 3100 sf of living space: simple Mexican elegance and comfort.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          What I love most about our home in Cozumel is the minute I walk through that front door I can instantly 'power down.' The air conditioning & cool terra cotta tile invite you into the open living area where you're drawn to the view of the Carribean from the balcony. The only thing between you and the sea is the pool!! And the sunsets - they go great with a cocktail!! The house emanates comfort: soft white leather couches, pillowtop mattresses, ceiling fans, fluffy towels. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with large walk in showers in the oceanside rooms. The master bathroom also includes a mens urinal. Then there's the location; on the water with shops, dining, entertainment, gym, groceries and more within minutes walking distance. Private and convenient, an unbeatable combination.
