Property description

Cantamar is located just North (the quiet side) of the town square of San Miguel. We are only a 15 to 20 minute walk into town. Also, inexpensive taxis are readily available in front of Cantamar. This non-smoking, air-conditioned, modernly rustic mexicana unit is located at pool level. It offers a private terrace and easy access to the freshwater pool, man-made beach, and the beautiful Caribbean water. There is a freshwater shower and dive rinse tank located adjacent to our patio entrance - PERFECT for divers and snorkelers. The unit has two bedrooms with king beds, and a sectional sofa can accommodate one more adult, or two small children, if necessary. The master bedroom has it's own private bathroom and a spectacular ocean view! The ocean view from the condo living area and swimming pool is just beautiful! There is great snorkeling, with easy ocean access, just steps away from the condo.

Only eight units share a private swimming pool and a wonderful man-made beach, with two palapas for shade, and a lean-to pergola with shade. Maid service, is provided twice a week for a seven night stay. Additional days of maid service can be added for an extra $20 per day. Beach towels are not provided, so please bring your own. The kitchen is fully furnished with a breakfast bar, and the dining room table can accomodate six people. Free, unlimited, long distance to the US/Canada and free high speed wireless internet are also included, along with TV, DVD and CD player(with Ipod docking). Private, gated location right on the ocean. A great place to 'get away from it all'.

Cozumel is a diver's paradise, consistently regarded as one the best places, on this side of the continent, for scuba diving. The island is known for it's consistent 100-150 feet+ visibility and effortless drift diving. The water temperature ranges between a low of 76 in the winter months, to a high of 84 in the summer. The diving, snorkeling and beautiful, clear water make this a great vacation spot for water lovers.

Besides the great water activities, Cozumel has many GREAT restaurants for every price range and taste, and is a shopper's paradise. It's an extremely good value, compared to other high-priced Caribbean island locations.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am a stay at home housewife (domestic engineer) that keeps busy taking care of her hard working husband. We both enjoy scuba diving and snorkeling. I also enjoy traveling, gardening, biking, reading, cooking, eating.......especially at all of the great places in Cozumel that we can't wait to return to after every trip. We both have taken up underwater photography and have gotten some amazing photos!! We think Cozumel is the BEST! It's in our hearts and souls.

Why the Owner Chose Cozumel Island:
We bought Cantamar 102 because, first of all - we loved Cozumel! We think it's the best diving this half of the hemisphere. We also love the people and the many fantastic restaraunts on the island. We chose this location because of the beauty and closeness of the ocean. The water is crystal clear and the snorkeling is great! We are North of town, about a 20 minute walk into town, on nicely paved walkways. That is a big plus for us! The North end is, typically, much quieter than South of town. It is easy to get to from the States, and it is rather inexpensive, compared to going to the Caymans or Bahamas (Cozumel has much better diving that either). We liked the building size and the fact that it was built the 'Mexican' way. Older building, but built to withstand hurricane winds. The building is quaint and private.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We are RIGHT on the ocean, with a beautiful palm tree-lined view. Our condo is right at pool level. No need to go up and down numerous stairs. Diver's dream. Rinse your gear right in front of the bedroom patio and carry 10 ft to patio to dry. Quiet location away from town, but close enough to walk there (15-20 minutes).
