About Carla Hanson

Craig and I live between three homes. Olympia, Washington, Daytona Beach Shores, Florida and Cozumel. Craig is an attorney who practices law in the State of Washington, but thanks to technology, he is able to work from Cozumel and Florida as well.

Carla Hanson purchased this house in 1999

Why Carla Hanson chose Colonia Andres

After diving all over the Caribbean, we found that we enjoyed Cozumel as much above the water as we did below the water. The diving was great and the people in Cozumel were even greater. We felt very much at home on our first visit to Cozumel and within two years we had completed our home away from home.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location. Casa Carlita is close to everything that Cozumel has to offer, but the home is very quiet and private. We are only a 2 minutie walk to a major grocery store, a ten minute walk to some fun restuarants and a 5 minute walk to the pier near Margaritaville to catch your dive boat. Guests appreciate our excellent maid service and the loads of amenities provided including wireless internet, free long distance to US and Canada, DVD player with over 200 movies, books, etc to choose from. Our courtyard is surrounded by a high wall for complete privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner


The visit to your home was once again AWESOME. I feel so at home in your house. I love what you have done to the place. I especially love the outdoor shower. I actually used it most of the trip. My sister was with me this time and she is hooked, just as I am. Thank you sooooooo much for letting us stay at your home. Guadalupe is the sweetest person and Victor was most helpful. I wanted to bring them both back home with me.

I am seriously considering retiring to Cozumel. I love it down there. I want a house just like yours. Wanna sell?

Cozumel is such a quaint island and everyone is really nice. Needless to say I love it down there.

Thanks again Carla, you are an angel for having a "Great Escape".

Casa Carlita could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

I did extensive research on where to say in Cozumel. I'm extremely picky and since I'm a mom I needed to make sure the area would be ideal for my husband & I and our 2 teenage sons. Let me tell you, it was! The 4 of us agreed the house was absolutely perfect!! We literally had not one complaint.

These are the reasons why:

1) Location, location, location! --in very close walking distance to the grocery store, a larger grocery store is slightly further but still in walking distance. Taxi's are very affordable since the house was nearby most of the hot spots. Great restaurants very close by like Jimmy Buffet's, Rock & Java, Jeanie's.

2) Home felt very secure w/the gate & the safe in the bedroom. Nice to know I don't have to worry about my passport & pesos while being a tourist.

3) The casa has need to bring your beach towels, don't worry about bringing any entertainment because the DVD collection was quite impressive! The rooms were very comfortable & the home has great decor. Extremely clean! A/C in the bedrooms and living area worked great!

4) Knowing I could call the house representative at anytime, 24hrs gave me great peace of mind. When you are in a different country it's nice to know you have a contact close by to help.

5) Internet connection!!! Bring your laptop.

We were there for 1 week and I will most definitely recommend staying at Casa Carlita.

Cozy, cute, quiet and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Casa Carlita! We wanted to stay forever. There are 2 large bedrooms and a small den/storage room with another small bed. The pool was great. Our 6 year old loved it!

The casa was super clean and the a.c. worked great. The master bed is now a king size and it was huge and so comfortable.

The house manager was terrific! He helped us with laundry and getting tickets to the pirate dinner cruise.

Every morning a local man came and sold warm churros. They were delicious. The location is perfect. We were so sad to leave and can't wait to return. Thank You!

Wonderful property and a great value

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Casa Carlita and as always, we enjoyed every minute. The house is a gem within a block of one of the largest stores in Cozumel, so everything we needed was an easy five minute walk. We do tend to cook breakfast and about half our meals at home, and the kitchen is really well stocked with everything we need (our only suggestion would be to have available for guests some basic spices). We dive most days and are always delighted to come home to a really clean house and garden (the maid service is awesome) and the pool where we float around while enjoying a cold beer from the fridge! We get up early for exercising and diving, so we're really happy to enjoy happy hour on the terrace watching all the great birds and geckos in the garden, go to a nearby restaurant (our favorite, Rolandi's, is a ten-minute walk) to sit by the sea and watch the sunset, and reeturn home for reading. While the house is well-equipped with TV and lots of movies, we never have turned it on. And while there was good and reliable wi-fi, we put our phones in the safe and avoided all of these things. We really appreciated having a choice! We did have a few things going on in the states that we had to keep abreast about, so it was awesome to have a free phone line to call the states and even have a number for our family to reach us or leave a message that we could easily retrieve. In general, this place is a gem. While we rent it as just a couple, the house would be great for two couples as the bedrooms are as far apart from each other as possible, both have full bathrooms and the common areas a big and comfortable. There is also a little study with it's own door that has a twin bed for another single guest. Regardless, it is affordable enough for us alone, but could be really affordable for a small group. My only hesitation about giving such a good review is that I may be contributing to making it more difficult to book Casa Carlita when we want to!

Excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The vacation rental came exactly as advertised and there were no surprises. We really loved the pool area. And when I say pool I really mean a pool. Not a splash pool that is commonly found at a lot of vacation rentals. We slept in the smaller of the two bedrooms because we could open the sliding glass door at night. This was also really appreciated. The neighbourhood is very quiet forthe most part and is very safe. Javier the churro guy showed up at the gate every day. Only $1 each and very tasty. We liked the proximity to grocery stores and to downtown. Easily walkable to both. Guido‘s is a must as far as going out to dinner. If you love Italian food this place is really good both in terms of quality and portion size. Try the chocolate mousse also. We went there 3 times during our stay. Dicks Dive was excellent if you like fish and chips. Didn’t get to go diving on this trip but snorkeling at El Cielo is a must. Been to a lot of Caribbean spots during our travels and this was a definite highlight.

Oops, almost forgot to mention Victor and Lupe. Both are awesome.

We definitely recommend Casa Carlita. You won’t be disappointed.

Loved everything about this house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here over Christmas and New Years (just over two weeks total). The location is perfect, close to downtown and grocery stores, close to Corpus Christi park and walking distance to so many things. We would walk each day to Papa Hogs to scuba dive - and walk into town each evening to eat dinner or hang out. The neighborhood and neighbors are very friendly - and the evenings are very quiet (thankfully, did not have the usual barking dogs we have grown accustomed to when staying in town).

We are a family of three and the house was perfect. We stayed in the master and our 7 year old stayed in the other large bedroom with pool view (and she liked to play in the room with the single bed). The house is well laid out and everyone felt like they had their own space. The deck around the pool is great although in December, the pool was a little too cold to use. The bikes were a nice touch and we used them to ride back and forth to the gym.

From the first interaction with Carla, our stay was great! Carla is incredibly responsive and super helpful. You can tell they love their home as it is reflected in the care they have taken to ensure guests have everything they need - and the house is very well maintained and lovely.

The house is fully equipped with everything you need for a great stay. Kitchen is stocked and ready to go with everything you might need and can imagine. We did have to buy charcoal and lighter fluid for the BBQ (which was in short supply over Christmas period) - so a propane BBQ might be nice - but otherwise, no complaints.

We had no need to interact with the team from Enjoy Cozumel who manage the property - as we frequent Cozumel a lot - but they did say they were available to assist, if needed. We only had the cleaning person come 3 times in the 16 days so not sure if that was normal but it did not seem as frequent as in other houses we have stayed in. We aren't messy so it was no big deal but something you may want to confirm, if you are staying here.

Anyways - you can not go wrong renting this house. It is awesome on all fronts and we will definitely plan to stay here again.

Note: La Cocina de Silvia for breakfast is only a block and a half away - and is great for breakfast (except on Saturdays). Javier, the churro man, also lives on the other end of the street so can stop by daily with churros as well. Yum!

Thank you Carla, loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I truly appreciate it. I am happy your stay was a good one! Thank you for your comments on the maid service that was provided. Maid service is scheduled daily (except Sundays and Holidays) unless the guests request every other day. I like to give my guests the option to choose. I will definitely follow up with the management company to investigate what happened with your maid service. Thank you again for writing the review and for choosing Casa Carlita for your stay in Cozumel.

Loved Casa Carlita!

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who just returned from a week at Casa Carlita and would highly recommend this property. We loved it! It is so well equipped with anything you could need and so appreciated the internet and phones, which were very helpful. The air conditioning is set up perfectly. The location is incredible, a block from a large grocery store, 2 blocks from the ocean and a short walk to downtown. Our favorite part of the home was the pool/patio area. We spent a lot of time around and in the pool and reading and playing cards in the pool/patio area.

The services of Guadalupe and Victor were amazing and another example of the many great features of Casa Carlita. We have traveled a great deal and have never been happier with a property that we have stayed at. The owners have thought of everything and we would highly recommend staying at Casa Carlita! We'll be back!
