Guestbook comments from the owner

***** ( that is for 5 stars)!!

We stayed at Casa Kristy last summer and we liked it so much that we booked our stay again this summer too. We feel like we have all the amenities that we enjoy in our own home. The colors and the furnishings in the condo are warm and inviting. I insist on staying in a clean and comfortable environment and Casa Kristy delivers!! The owners do not skimp on any of the comforts that you might enjoy in a 5 star resort…..fluffy linens, cozy sheets, and bedding. My family enjoyed the condo so much it was hard to get them off the wifi and the flat screen TV to go outside and enjoy the ocean! I especially love lounging on the comfy teak furniture on the balcony outside while enjoying the magnificent view of the ocean!!

Delightful! We will definitely stay again and I hope it will be soon!

Fantastic condo. Everything was quality

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the condo was high quality. Purified water dispenser with hot and cold water options. Good kitchen supplies with important starters offered and snacks and wine as a welcoming gift. Quality towels and linens. Comfortable furniture inside and on the patio. The best condo we have ever rented in Cozumel and at a reasonable price. The managers Elizabeth and Matt were fantastic. They helped us arrange a private cook and made money saving suggestions of having her cook for 2 nights at a time. Reina is a fantastic cook and so sweet. Great if you don't want to drive into town and just enjoy San Francisco Beach and the pool. Also, if you are a diver you can be picked up at the pier and avoid the long boat ride to the best sites.

Excellent location and superb accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the condo for one week begining of january. Exactly like the pictures with no surprises. Owner has thought of everything, condo was well equipped including most condiments (ie;coffee filters). Condo very well appointed and comfy large bed. Everything seems brand new. Condo was spotless. Two nice pools and beach area.

The 4 building 3 story condo development is in a gated entrance with pleasant and helpful staff. Grounds are attended to almost every day. Would stay again for sure and would recommend without hesitation.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely perfect!!! It was exceptionally clean, comfortable, and spacious, and had everything you could possibly need. We loved the electric grill on the balcony...we used it almost every day/night. In fact, we loved it so much, we bought one when we got back home lol! The property is quiet, beautiful, and perfect for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of town. I cannot wait to rent this condo again (hopefully soon)!! Matt & Elizabeth do an outstanding job, and I have nothing but great things to say about them and their professionalism!!!

Cozumel Gem

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in a large unit this complex before, so we were familiar with what was in store. We could not have been happier with our choice again. The condo was exactly as advertised. Clean, well appointed, convenient and very comfortable. We came to dive and being a one bedroom condo did not hinder our experience at all. There is plenty of room on the balcony to dry your gear and a community rinse sink is very convenient. Access was easy and the staff was very friendly. It is a 15-20 min drive into town but if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing place I would highly recommend this unit to anyone.

Everything you need for the perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great location with a beautiful beach and pools. Perfect place for the dive boat to pick you up for a 10 minute boat ride to the reef.

The condo has everything you will need for cooking, plus a nice supply of spices and extras. Also, all the beach equipment you'll need including a nice sized cooler. The condo is nicely appointed, with a large bathroom and bedroom. The patio has a nice view of the ocean and comfy furniture. We will definitely be back.

Car: recommended

Cozumel is a shining jewel. A friendly island that's large enough to have the services and selection for a traveler but it still maintains its authentic feel. The water and the diving are unmatched.
