Cozumel Island condo description

You've heard of the 'Three Ls' that define the best real estate: 'Location, Location, Location.' Now there's a fourth: 'Luxury.'

Welcome to Cozumel Island's most luxurious property in the best location imaginable. This one truly has it all: Right on the ocean, yet in town. NO RENTAL CAR OR TAXIS NEEDED -- SAVE $$$! You get the fun and peace of the ocean and the convenience and amenities of town in one package. This is the only place on the island that you will find that combination.

*******************************************************
'The location could not be better. It's in the middle of everything. The facilities are world class.'
-- Roger Schirmbeck and Karen Crumley, Baytown, Texas
********************************************************

Plus, it's the only vacation property in Cozumel with full-time, on-site, English-speaking concierge service. Our friendly staff will take care of your needs AND give you insider advice and tips.

There are a few luxury condo and hotel properties in Cozumel. Problem is, they're miles from town. Unless you want to eat in the same mediocre tourist trap restaurant every day -- they figure you probably will, so why bother with good food and service? -- you have to pay $10.00 - $20.00 or more plus tip for a taxi EACH WAY to take you to a decent place for dining, shopping or nightlife.

Until now. Welcome to Casa Phoenix. If you want 5-star oceanfront luxury with one of the best restaurants on the island (and THE best view) on-site, and a short walk to virtually every other restaurant, shop and nightspot, you have found it. Two grocery superstores and nightlife are steps away (Carlos 'n Charlie's, Senior Frogs & Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville just 2-3 blocks away).

This is the only property on Cozumel Island with on-site, full-time English-speaking concierge service. Wi-Fi in the condo, TV with US channels, DVDs, free calls to the U.S. & Canada. Fully-equipped kitchen, 2-zone central air, 4 bedrooms each with private bath, ceiling fans, of course all linens, towels, etc. provided. In other words, this condo has it all.

The first thing you see walking into Casa Phoenix is the jaw-dropping ocean vista. The floor-to-ceiling sliding glass wall opens to the 50-foot private terrace, complete with hot tub!

********************************************************
'The view is to die for.
Drinking my morning cup of coffee had new meaning.'
--Stacy Plymale, Puyallup, Washington
********************************************************

Each of the 4 master suites has its own private attached bath.

********************************************************
'Definitely the best accommodations in the Caribbean.'
-- The Harris', Garden City, Kansas
********************************************************

The living room and two master suites open onto the oceanfront terrace. The two other suites have small balconies with town and partial ocean views. The fully-equipped kitchen features GE & LG appliances and Kohler fixtures.

3-level heated freshwater pool right on the ocean; snorkel or dive right off the beach. Private dock serves every dive and fishing boat. The sand beach is on a seawall; water access is via a small sandy grotto, swim ladder, or just jump in.

********************************************************
'Everything was more than I could ask for.
There are no words to express how great this place is!'
-- Caitlin Bruno, Saratoga Springs, NY
********************************************************

Keep in touch with family and friends with wireless Internet and FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLS to the U.S. and Canada!

Casa Phoenix is over 3,200 sq. ft. of tropical oceanfront living.

And the sunsets...oh, the sunsets!

********************************************************
'The best and most relaxing vacation we've ever had!'
-- The George Davis Family, Auburn, Indiana
********************************************************

Compare our home to any other property. This is living like Cozumel has never seen. All the delights of the ocean at your back door, all the amenities of town at your front.

You deserve this. Welcome to paradise!

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2004

          About: My wife Alison and I met in the U.S. Congress in Washington, D.C., where we were both on the professional staff for years for various congressmen and committees. She's also worked for the U.S. Vice President and the American Conservative Union, and I also worked for Ronald Reagan in his campaigns and Presidency. We now live in Kerrville, Texas, in the gorgeous Hill Country and write a financial newsletter. I am an ordained minister and the pastor of Reformation Church. We are divers and first came to Cozumel in 1982. We have 4 great cats who tolerate our wonderful Springer Spaniel, Bettendorf. -- Bill Mencarow

          Why Cozumel Island:
          Alison and I first came to Cozumel on our honeymoon and loved it. We then got our scuba certification and started going to the island as often as time and money would permit. We like Cozumel because, unlike other dive destinations, there's so much to do out of the water and because it's so safe -- crime is practically nonexistent. Before we found this condo we'd stay in different places but always had the same bad choice: stay close to town in a pretty funky place, or get a nice place miles from anywhere. There were no nice places, much less luxury places, convenient to town. When we saw these condos being built, saw the fabulous location (short walking distance to almost everything -- no rental car or taxis needed) and the quality (built by an American builder to first-class U.S. standards), buying one was a no-brainer!

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          We love: The fact that there's so much to see and do on Cozumel Island; That it has virtually no crime, 'the safest Caribbean island' according to tripadvisor dotcom; The convenience of being able to walk across the street to the grocery superstores (there are now two a block from each other!); Having one of the best restaurants (Northern Italian, fresh seafood, USDA steaks, etc.) with the best view on the island on the top floor of our condo building; The short walk to other restaurants, shopping, nightlife, etc. and not having to spend money on a rental car or taxis back and forth; Being directly on the ocean, not having to cross a busy street to get to the beach and pool (beware of this when you see ads for properties 'on the water'); Having some of the best snorkeling on the island right off our beach; Relaxing & dining on the private covered terrace 7 stories up watching the boats (& cruise ships!) go by, feeling the ocean breezes -- sometimes from the hot tub; Being able to get carry-out or order room service from the restaurant upstairs and just relax; Being able to order drinks or food on the beach and at the pool; Choosing from a wide variety of things to do, or choosing to do nothing at all... Please see our condo website for much more info and many more photos.
