About Gina Laughlin/Owner

Our family has been traveling to Cozumel for over 30 years and absolutely love our forever vacation home. My grown boys took their first steps in the plaza and were always on the dive boat since 5 years old and certified at 11! Despite traveling and diving all over the world, we all agree, going home to Cozumel is the best!

Gina Laughlin/Owner purchased this villa in 1990

Why Gina Laughlin/Owner chose Colonia Andres

Our home is designed to accommodate 2 families or groups of friends with separate entrances and living areas so you can be together but not on top of each other all the time. All the patios and living areas are perfect for getting together for cocktails with friends or just hanging out and reading a book! The home is very comfortable and lots of good memories have been made here over the years. Most of our guest have been calling Casa La Roja home for over 25 years as they return every year.

What makes this villa unique

Very quiet area...Mexico can be noisy so we are fortunate to be tucked into a residential neighborhood that is just a few blocks away from all the action yet extremely quiet. While some rentals have pools, we have always believed Cozumel is about the ocean and on an island you have more beaches and reefs than you can visit on any one trip.

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time staying in Cozumel and thanks to Gina and Casa la Roja I am already hoping to go back. Our trip consisted of three families with a total of three small children under the age of three. The house was set up perfectly for us to al be together and at the same time for everyone to have their own space.

Located in a quiet neighbourhood just blocks from the beach we were quite happy to walk everywhere, even with small children. The house had everything we needed and it really did feel like a home away from home. Highlights for us included roomy bedrooms, comfortable beds, lots of shared space, and a beautiful patio in the back.

What really made this holiday special though, was just how easy it was to organize (the accommodations part at least). Trying to coordinate three different families is not particularly easy and Gina was incredibly patient. She had everything organized for us when we arrived and it was pleasantly painless to get everyone in and comfortable after long days of travelling. Both Gina, and her property manager Teresa, were very responsive when we had questions or needs and everything promised was delivered.

We would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend Gina's Case la Roja to others.

Thank you Gina!

Great House in a Wonderful Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting Casa La Roja for over a dozen years and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay on each occasion. The house is very functional & comfortable whether for a week or for a month or more. Each year the owner makes a few improvements. The house is always well maintained, clean and in tip top shape when we arrive.

We rent the first floor which features a full kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dining area, a living room and a quiet spacious back patio with a built in brick grill. . There’s a separate apartment on the second floor containing two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, living room and large balcony; and, the third floor has a single bedroom. The house has tasteful furniture throughout, a television, and air conditioning in the bedrooms as well as fans in every room (we rarely need to use the air-conditioning).

Although we enjoy Cozumel’s many fine restaurants we also cook in or take out from time to time. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking or you can use the built in brick grill on the back patio. For divers there’s a rinse tank for gear on the back patio and a secure area for hanging dive equipment.

Casa La Roja is in the charming Corpus Christi neighborhood. We always feel as if we are part of the neighborhood instead of being in a gated tourist community. The house is about one block from the magnificent Corpus Christi church and the square in front of the church where there are often events, music, etc. This is a safe neighborhood – as is all of Cozumel – and the house is very secure

The house is about a 25 minute walk from downtown (or a 5 minute car or cab ride). If you rent a car there is plenty of parking available on the street. Casa La Roja is about a 10 minute walk from two large supermarkets and excellent restaurants.

Teresa, who cares for the house and looks after the guests, is attentive & always helps out with whatever is required. The house has internet and a television which is nice to occasionally get a news fix on CNN, BBC, Fox etc.

We think this is a great house which we will continue to rent in the upcoming years. We’ve recommended it to several friends who have all thanked us for the recommendation.

So spacious, great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

The listing on this home is exactly what you get!!! Well-maintained and an excellent job done by the property manager who was available if we needed her. Within walking distance of great restaurants and two large grocery stores. Loved the sound of the beautiful church bells from the gorgeous Catholic Church in Corpus Christi neighborhood. You can not go wrong renting this property.

Why we are repeat renters of Casa La Roja

  • 5 of 5

We live in a town on Cape Cod so we are well aware of the ups and downs and possible horrors of house rentals.

That said we return every winter to a 3 week or sometimes longer stay at casa La Roja for the last 18 years.

Why???? No pool.. no TV... not on the water...?

Well, This is a home, a comfortable home well situated in the Corpus Christi neighborhood. We walk to lots of restaurants, shopping or just walk a few doors to sit in local square. Of course we also rent a car for our 3 weeks.

It is quiet, CLEAN, well managed. The moment we arrive I plant my IPOD in the docking station and know when we return from a day of diving we can just listen to our music.. not something loud with screams from the hotel pool wet t-shirt contest. Plus the conveniences in the home like appliances and internet are fine.

Yes we will return next year.
