About Rosalie Thomas

Don and Rosalie are both retired professionals from the Seattle area. We love SCUBA diving, sailing and skiing. Casa Calypso allows us to share our lives with our large family and fun friends. We usually spend our winters in Cozumel, and the summers sailing the beautiful waters of the Pacific Northwest.

Rosalie Thomas purchased this villa in 2010

Why Rosalie Thomas chose Quintana Roo

Cozumel is safe! It's an ideal vacation spot for an active family with varied interests! The grandchildren can swim at the beach or at the pool, the adults can SCUBA, go fishing or take off for the 'wild-side' of the island, and Grandma and Grandpa can kick back on the terrace and watch it all! In the evenings, we can gather on the terrace, or head into town for a delicious restaurant meal. Whether we're walking along the malecon, or looking for a party, Cozumel is a beautiful,safe, and friendly place for all the members of our family to gather. We love it here!

What makes this villa unique

Casa Calypso offers the unique combination of being private and outside of the tourist activities in town, but close enough that it's easy to join in at a moment's notice. We love the quite in the mornings, the easy access to diving and snorkeling, the incredible sunsets, and the breathtaking display of stars in the night sky. Truly, it can't be beat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just as advertised. As a group we have stayed at the property location before. Each time we rented from the same owners. Easy and friendly to deal with. They go above and beyond to assure your stay is a wonderful experience. The property is safe, clean and just an all around beautiful location in Cozumel. The view is amazing. The snorkeling from the pier is fantastic. Close to town. The property management team is wonderful. The house is furnished with all you need to feel just as if you are at home. We enjoy ourselves every time. Never disappointed. A+ service from the time you arrive at the airport to the time you leave.

Casa Calypso, Perfection on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family of ten. We all loved the wonderful, spacious house right on the beach, the palapas for early morning coffee and long afternoons reading and watching the boat traffic, cocktails by the pool and hot tub, snorkeling in front of the house, and being picked up by our dive boats from our very own pier. What's not to like! Well, definitely a car. Taxi's to and from town for 10 people cost $60. There's no public transportation and Casa Calypso is a half hour from a supermarket. Despite that inconvenience, our stay was wonderful for all 3 of our generations. Our teenagers and middle schoolers enjoyed diving, as did their parents and we grandparents enjoyed snorkel trips. I would advise anyone staying at Casa Calypso to have the chef prepare meals for at least one day. This little complex isn't for people seeking excitement or night life, but for anyone wanting to enjoy nature, sea life and just relaxing, it can't be beat!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 9 and the house provided plenty of space and bedrooms. The house is in a great location on the property and we had all the necessities that we needed. I would recommend that if you stay here to absolutely rent a car. We spent a fortune on Taxis because the property is pretty far from town. There is no where to walk to shop or eat. It would be great if there was a restaurant on the property to grab breakfast or lunch. Rosalie and Patty were great to work with. Always available to answer any questions. The men who work the front desk were amazing. Nice property with very nice people.

Great house in beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

9 of us stayed in this beautiful home for one week! The house is well kept and in a beautiful location. If you're looking to be in a party zone, this is not the house. It's very quiet and family friendly, which was perfect for us. If you're a scuba diver, the boat will pick you right on the pier in front of the house. My husband and son did 3 dives with Scuba Tony and highly recommend. Patty, the concierge was incredibly helpful and checked in on us each day. We hired Chef FILO for 4 meals... all excellent and fabulous margaritas! Housekeeping staff very good also. We had a great time and would highly recommend thIs property.

This house was excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families that went to Cozumel to relax, dive and have fun. We did that in spades!

The house was perfect for what we did. Although we had bad weather the first 2 days, we enjoyed it all the while because the house was festive to be in.

We cooked A LOT, the kitchen was well equipped, and even had spices and such already there.

We dove with Deep Blue, they were also great. We were a little concerned about diving off of a small boat, as all of our diving previously was off of larger boats that you enter from the rear, but it all worked out great.

The community was great, security was great and friendly. We will stay there again in the future.

Our vacation may have well been the best yet after 20 years!

Thanks Rosalie and Don!

Relaxing Get Away on the BEACH!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 rented this home for 6 days at the end of May 2017 and had a wonderful time! We had more than enough room and my kids really enjoyed having their own bedrooms! We celebrated our daughter's 11th birthday and our concierge, Patty was so amazing to help us get the cake to the house without my daughter knowing! We spent time in the city at the local restaurants and discovered that it was possible for our family of 5 to eat for $23 at Los Seras and $41 at Los Otates and come away with full bellies! The home itself is very comfortable with all the conveniences. We opted to have the housekeeper come twice during our stay and that was perfect for us! The pool on the grounds is wonderful! We met both other renters along with homeowners and found everyone to be super nice. We spent a good amount of time snorkeling off the pier and even saw a really big barracuda while doing so along with some amazing fish and stingray!! Patty also helped to set up a scuba diving trip for us and they picked us up right from our very own pier! Four out of the five of us had never been scuba diving. We decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a try. Amazing experience!! Highly recommend using Patty's brother Alex. He was so good to explain everything to us and I really think was the reason that we all were successful in our first session down to 40ft! I really can't say enough positive about our stay. Rosalie, Amber and Rodrigo answered all of my questions ahead of time and sent plenty of information, coordinated our transfer to the home and oriented us to the island. Really a very laid back experience...that I would happily do all over again!! Thank you!!
