About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We are in building ONE, on the water!! A great place for family fun and R & R. Relax on patio and watch sunset while having a delicious meal prepared for you in the kitchen by wonderful local cooks. They'll even make you a margarite to enjoy on the deck while the cooks fix (and then clean up) dinner.

You can watch kids on beach from the deck.

Local dive operators will pick you up at pier adjacent to condo and take you to some of the best diving in the world only 10 minutes away. Our family often does 2 dives in the morning, gets home for lunch, and then explores the beauty of Cozumel.

There are 2 good sized bedrooms with comfortable mattresses and Ralph Lauren bedding. The master bedroom has a king bed and sliding glass door opening on to deck. The second bedroom has a double bed and a fold out sofa which is double bed size (with extra paddding for increased comfort)

Bathrooms are roomy and master bath has large tub with Jacuzzi.

Excellent washer and dryer in nook off of master bedroom.

Kitchen is fully equipped when you choose to fix your own meals.

Vonage phone provides free phone access to US and Canada. Cable TV with US channels and WiFi is available throughout condo.

We love to come here to relax and enjoy the extraordiary beauty and hospitality of Cozumel

About The Owner

We are family of 5 who loves the crystal clear water of the Caribbean. Dad has been traveling to Cozumel since 1968. We live most of the year in Austin, Texas.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Cozumel

We rented this condo numerous times before we purchased it. We fell in love with the simple elegance of the property and could not pass up the chance to buy the condo which is located on beautiful San Francisco Beach. There is great swimming in the ocean and a heated pool right next to our building. We love the Mexican culture and cuisine. Cozumel has many fun and interesting sites to visit. We feel secure in our Mexican home and appreciate the attention and helpful attitude of the 24 hour security staff.

What makes this condo unique

The location of the condo within the larger property is the most compelling feature of this place. Unlike many condos which are at the beach, our place is actually on the beach. The tranquility of the place at night and the easy access to the beach are without parallel in Cozumel. Though we are 13 kilometers south of town, there are a number of good restaurants nearby and a cab is only 5 minutes away should you want to go to town to eat or shop. If you rent a car, there is a reserved parking spot for you near the condo.

It is a great spot for bike riding and running, as it is away from most traffic. I have often seen ringtail cats, wild boar and flamingoes on morning bike rides

Excellent view, spotless, clean, and wonderful balcony

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo. The balcony gave a perfect view of the ocean and sunsets. The beach was always quiet and few people. The lounge chairs were always available.

The condo is huge, very large space for the kitchen, dining, and living areas. The balcony has two separate sections, one in front of the living area, with comfortable couches. The second area is in front of the master bedroom and has a chair and table.

Other condos we have rented had very little in kitchen utensils, but this was very well appointed.

Fulvio, the property manager was very helpful and helped us find things to do and fixing things if they needed fixing.

A maid came every day and totally cleaned the place. That was very different from our previous experience also.

We will be back here.

It is far from the main city, so it only will work with a rental car

Wonderful & amazing place - gorgeous views from the balcony!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a week with our family. We had such a wonderful time. The views from the balcony are breathtaking. The beach was gorgeous and our kids loved the pool! The house was very well appointed and spacious. The beds were all very comfortable (including the sofa bed). We had everything that we needed (and more!) The owners were very accommodating and extremely helpful with any questions we asked. The housekeeper cleans daily and is very detailed.

This was truly one of our favorite vacations of all time. We will definitely return and highly recommend this residence! I wish they had more than 5 stars available.

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

This property was very much as described;

Right on the water with a beautiful view

Clean and great condition

Beach with access no problem no fighting for the chairs and great snorkelling

However quite unfortunate at night that the property is next to a resort as you will hear the night performance from 8 to 11:00 and depending on the type of performance like live rock band or Japanese drums it can get pretty loud something that should be taken into consideration or be made aware of.

Owner's Response: Johanne, Thanks for your feedback. We are troubled by your report of the loud music and agree that it can interfere with the tranquility of the gently lapping Caribbean, usually heard from the condo's patio. The condo owners' association is aggressively pursuing all measures to reduce/eliminate excessive noise from our neighbors. We will remain vigilant until we reach successful conclusion. We apologize for this disturbance and again appreciate your feedback. Best, Jim and Irma Brand Owners 5220

My definition of PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

This was my sixth time in this unit. Spotlessly cleaned every day but Sunday, clean on arrival, a bowl of snacks for us. Ultra convenient for diving as it is near the reefs and the four dive operators I have used all pick up at the dock beside the resort.

We rent a car and drive to town most nights for dinner, breakfast and lunch in the unit.

In my eyes it does not get any better.

Beautiful condo and beach

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo. The unit was very nice and quite large. Maid service came daily to clean. The location of the unit in the complex was perfect as we were right on the water. Nice large balcony.

Manager was very accommodating and helpful.

I guess the only negative thing I could say is that the pool closest to our unit was closed during our stay for maintenance. There is another pool on the property, however we chose to just enjoy the beach.
