Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 adults or 6 adults + 4 small children)

Welcome to Paradise! Compare our 4,200+ sq.ft. home to any other property and you realize you have found the real deal. This is the very best!

Imagine sitting in a hot tub on the balcony of your penthouse, watching the glorious sunset, sipping a chilled drink with gentle ocean breezes caressing your skin. Ahhhh!!

Next morning, you wake up early, eager for your first dive trip, or your beach chair with a book down at the pool area. You get your gear, head down the elevator and wait at your private boat dock to be picked up. Or you just settle into your lounge chair with a good book and snooze away the day.

Does this sound like the vacation for you? Does having a dive experience where you feel like you're flying across the reef thrill you? Or perhaps you want to travel with a large group and not feel like you're on top of each other? Desire a family reunion where you are all comfortable?

If so, come stay at Casa Corazón (House of the Heart), a spacious, diver/family-friendly penthouse where you will find the finest drift diving in the world! It doesn't get any better than this!

Casa Corazón is the penthouse (8th floor) in the gorgeous condominium building right across the street from City Hall. Your views are breathtaking facing the west, the south and across the island as well!

You are 3 blocks from downtown San Miguel (Cozumel), a 2-minute walk to the shops along the ocean, and yet you are far enough away from the tourist bustle to enjoy the crystal-clear waters and quiet.

Unprecedented luxury in a building built to the highest quality standards. To quote one of our recent tenants, 'The Casa exceeded our expectations which rarely ever happens.'

Your secure elevator opens right at the door of your Casa. Open your door, and the first thing that greets you is a breath-taking view across the Caribbean Ocean to Playa del Carmen and Xcaret through the 8-foot high floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. All windows and sliding glass doors have screens, and there are tropical wood ceiling fans in every room should you prefer gentle breezes and the sound of the waves to air-conditioning.

As you enter the Great Room, you see custom ceramic tile floors, striking carved wood, rattan, and leather furniture, comfortable sofas and chairs, lots of reading lights, a satellite-TV, DVD/CD, and stereo with surround sound. The TV is a new ROKU smart TV.

Casa Corazón's 4212 sq ft gives ample room for everyone to find a special nook or sufficient room to socialize and party. It's perfect for large groups of friends or family gatherings.

The dining table seats 10 comfortably. There is a wine refrigerator, bar stools, a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel LG appliances and various small appliances.

Four expansive bedroom suites each have their own private baths, balconies (check out the photos!) and flat-screen TVs. The Casa sleeps 8 people easily — no tripping over each other and plenty of privacy. One bedroom is even set up as an office if you want to work a little while you play. There is also a beautiful powder room just inside the front door.

Wireless high-speed DSL is available so bring your laptop! FREE calls to USA or Canada.

On the 800+ sq ft. oceanfront veranda is a hot tub (seats 6 to 8), chaise lounges, a table with 4 chairs and more. The veranda wraps around the south side of the building so you have a panoramic view.

Your elevator also takes you to the basement/garage, directly opposite the entrance to the beach and the tri-level pool. Tables with umbrellas and chairs, chaise lounges, palapas are on the clean white sand beach and by the pool.

There is a boat dock and dive rinse tanks; you can be picked up by any dive or tour outfit or scuba/snorkel right off your private beach. A secure storage locker is in the basement, so you don't have to cart your heavy wet gear up and down.

Across the street is Chedraui (a combination WalMart, Safeway, and Walgreen's), the local Cineplex and an Internet cafe if you left your laptop behind.

If you don't feel like cooking, there are many fine restaurants within walking distance or a short cab ride away. Many local restaurants will deliver to the penthouse, or if you wish, we can refer you to a chef who can prepare your meals for you.

If you want authentic local food, stroll down any of San Miguel's side streets or go to the Mercado. The people are all delightful and friendly. The culture is warm and inviting. It is safe here!!!

Your multilingual property management and concierge service provides daily maid service and can arrange for any number of activities – day trips to Xcaret, renting a scooter or car or even babysitters.

By the way, Cozumel is listed in travel magazines and by travel agents as one of the safest places to vacation in the world!

We strive to maintain our vacation condo just like our home. All three Air Conditioners, kitchen appliances and water heaters have been recently upgraded. All showers have new Speakman shower heads. All bathrooms have new ventilation fans installed. Most paddle fans have been recently replaced. New flat panel TVs in all rooms.

Why Kathryn Baker chose Colonia Andres

Cozumel is listed by almost every travel agency and magazine as the safest or one of the safest places to vacation in the world. Cozumel remains unchanged, but more beautiful than ever. The infrastructure is modern without losing the island feel. Services are wide ranging but professionally handled and there seems to be many things to do for everyone.

What makes this Condo unique

The penthouse is the perfect place to watch the sun set the sky ablaze with color as it goes down or the moonrise shed its soft light on the waves just off your balcony. You can watch the cruise ships arrive in the morning and leave in the evening while you are eating or reading or perhaps sitting in the hot tub. Everyone is amazed by the comfort but coziness of the penthouse. It is an experience as much as a place to stay. Even one of our friends who was born and raised on the island always gets distracted by the view and can't seem to stop taking pictures when he visits!

                                                                          Tonda or Brian Pratt

The condo complex is not part of the adjacent resort. The pictures showed their amenities as well when viewed from the balcony. Although there is no restaurant in the complex there are plenty nearby. This also results in a less crowded pool area and a more private experience overall. Great adult vacation destination! No cars are needed here as you can walk everywhere! The staff was very good and provided every service you might need. We highly recommend this unit! Thank you Kathryn!

The service was very responsive, we had a few minor problems and they were fixed immediately, Eve was fantastic! We will be back!

                                                                          It will be hard to find a location and facility as nice as this one.

                                                                          We are a group of 8 friends of the "young senior citizen" age category. We have traveled together before and have stayed in a variety of locations and facilities. This was our absolute favorite! We stayed for 3 weeks. It will be hard to find anything that can compare to this condo and location. The location was within walking distance of many of our favorite restaurants. There were two groceries stores very nearby also. The size of the condo was more than adequate for 4 couples, with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking. Our favorite thing was sitting on the deck in the morning watching the cruise ships coming into port. On several mornings the ships turned around right in front of us as they got aligned with the nearby pier. They were so close we felt like we could almost reach out and touch them and yet they made absolutely no noise. Amazing!

Great central location. Kathryn's recommendations were spot on. We had 5 people, each bedroom was like its own living space. The family room and balcony were the center point with mesmerizing views. Cant wait to go back. mark abshier

                                                                          Steve K.

                                                                          Overall had a good time in a nice place but was disappointed in the air conditioning. When we arrived, we were told by maintenance that they were changing over the AC units to new ones. After completion, the units did not produce the proper temperature for the first few days. Some bedrooms reached over 90 degrees. Later, when maintenance 'fixed' the problem, the units ran constantly lowering the temperature to around 62 degrees. I guess we should have complained more to maintenance but didn't want to burden them with an already touchy subject of AC costs in Mexico as explained in the owners notes & instructions.

                                                                          On a more positive note, Eve and the rest of the condo staff was absolutely wonderful.
