The homes caretaker Miguel is available to pick you up at the airport of ferry pier. Miguel can also help you arrange tours, give recommendations for restaurants, bars, rental cars, ect. He will even help you with grocery shopping so the fridge is full when you arrive at the house.

Casablanca is a very comfortable rental property at a reasonable rate compared to most other rentals in the area and already has many yearly visitors before listing on VRBO, I look forward to your visit.

About Andrew Clay

My name is Andrew and I lead a far from ordinary life. I left the retail world in 2004 to take a job with Norwegian Cruise Line and have yet to leave the Caribbean. After my first visit to Cozumel in 04 I immediately knew this is where I wanted a house. The dream of owning a home came true when I stumbled upon Casa Blanca, a charming casita in the middle of downtown Cozumel with much more personality than some of the big new condos on the island.

I work 6 month contracts at a time on the cruise ships so I am not able to be at the house except for 2 months or so out of the year, that’s why I’m here, I want to share my lovely home with everyone else.

My favorite things to do on the island are snorkeling, diving, watching the sun set with the ships leaving in the background (when I’m not on one), sitting in the main square with ice cold $1 beer watching people, going to the other side of the island and being the only one on the beach, drinking at Coconuts or Rasta Bar, snorkeling at Punta Sur, the list could go on for ever. I am in Cozumel regularly with work but unable to stay at the house as its usually just for the day, but I look forward to meeting you if you happen to be at the house while I’m in town.

Andrew Clay purchased this house in 2009

Why Andrew Clay chose Colonia Centro

There are few houses in Cozumel that can offer you what you will find at Casa Blanca. Your own private pool in the back yard that you don't have to share like at a condo. Within a 2 block radius you will find 4 or 5 restaurants that have amazing empanadas, panuchos, pozole, tostadas, and 2 blocks to the left you will find carnitas (mexican marinated slow cooked pork) that will melt in your mouth. The house is also located 4 blocks off the water, and 4 blocks south of the main square, both places you will find unique shops selling handicrafts, tequila, high end jewelry and watches, cosmetics, and more. Inside the house there are all the comforts of home, updated appliances and kitchen utensils. High speed internet and cable as well as AC throughout the house to keep you comfortable. I have seen many of the other rental properties around the area and in my opinion very few compare to Casa Blanca. I look forward to having you as my guest.

What makes this house unique

Very short walk to the main square and waterfront. Laundromat 1 block away. Private back yard with pool, something most condos cant offer.

Tranquilo and great location. As advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Andrew's home is very pleasant and a definite change from the all-inclusive experience. So close to town and "local" flair. Markets abound nearby; good places for local food; large market a short bicycle (provided) ride away. Would stay here again at the drop of a hat. Thank you Miguel for your help and service. Not anyone's fault that modem burned up when lightening struck it. Not to be replaced for 15 days. No problem though. We knew where to find FREE WIFI in Centro.

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Cozumel....wife and I stayed here for 3 of our days....perfect set up!....Pool was great, plenty of room in the house as well....ACs work well and plenty of fans to go along....just about 4 blocks from the main street and ocean....we usually just walked downtown and cab ride back at night....we didnt cook but this kitchen has about everything you need to do so....plenty of movies and books stocked on the living room shelves, stereo also. ...TV....theres a small mom n pop type restaurant on either end of this block....convenience store a couple blocks down also for sodas, beer, etc ...a neighborhood bar is a couple homes down, they play music some during day but never was too loud and we actually enjoyed listening while we were in pool....this home is in a typical mexican neighborhood/ problems....i would go for a run every morning...was fine. ...Miguel the care taker was a really good guy and very helpful....Andrew the owner was very easy to work with and informative....we will be back here for sure....and stay longer

Beyond their expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Villa Blanca. The house was cozy and the outside space was exactly what we wanted it to be. It was really really well equipped. All the necessities were there, spices, coffee, a lot of cookware... The house is located a few blocks from the main town square. We would rent this house again in a heartbeat. Thanks for letting us stay here!

Live like a Local

  • 5 of 5

Cozy House was perfect for our stay. We cruised out of Miami and left the ship early to stay on Cozumel and then took the ferry over to Playa del Carmen for another week. Andrew was very accommodating when the ship changed the itinerary and we needed to stay a day early. Miguel is a gem. He was always available - even ordering us a pizza and having it delivered when they did not understand our location. His sister came and cooked for us one night which was a "bucket list" experience - she made us a dinner better than any other. We found that shopping at the MEGA store was just like a trip to COSTCO and reasonably priced, house even had reusable shopping bags to take with us. The downtown shopping area is a short - 10 to 15 min. walk and you will discover all of the neighbor eateries, bars, etc. The house has everything you could need. Plenty of towels, sheets, dishes, pots and pans, toaster, microwave, coffeemaker, bug spray, and many items left by other guests. The neighborhood bar plays music and we loved it while sitting in the yard enjoying the pool. The house is very spacious giving everyone enough room to not get in each others way. Free wifi was a bonus. The house also has good movies for all ages, games, pool toys, bikes, and a good stereo. The couple we were with loved it so much they are interested in buying a property on the island for their vacation home. We hope you can and will experience life on Cozumel- staying at Cozy House was a pleasure for us.

Beautiful comfortable house - walking distance to everything

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with a nice pool (a must have dealing with the Cozumel heat). House is spacious, lots of windows and in the middle of a great area! Walking distance to the water, excursion pick up locations, AMAZING food and bars. We had no issues with the house, it was spotless when we arrived, beer in the fridge, and a great binder with recommendations on food, shopping, and anything else you may need.

Highly recommend.

Truly a great rental for the price.

  • 5 of 5

Great property to have for a cozy, relaxaling vacation for 2 people. Miguel was attentive but not bothersome. We opted for no maid service and enjoyed not having some one in the house everyday. The house needs a few minor repairs, everyday wear and tear. We will definitely use this property again. The bar 2 doors down was entertaining, horrible singer but the music stopped at 5 everyday......otherwise quiet neighborhood, close walking distance to town, 2 bicycles available to use.
