About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Condo, (Sleeps 6)

Let Casa De Jefe be YOUR home in Cozumel. Located just north of the main plaza and one block back from the beautiful Malecon, Casa De Jefe makes the perfect base of operations for your Cozumel adventure. Don’t waste your time in an impersonal hotel; feel at home in our home in Cozumel. A top floor unit with vaulted ceiling, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit has room to spread out and relax. The master suit features a king size bed and huge closet with a safe. The attached master bath has two sinks, so there is no arguing on vacation. The glass walled shower is large enough to share too! The first guestroom, the blue and white room, features a comfy queen bed and the other, the green room, features two twin beds. A hall bath with a large glass walled shower is between the two bedrooms.

Casa De Jefe features a fully equipped kitchen with gas oven and stove, fridge with ice maker and cold water supplied by bottled water. It has all the stuff you need: juicer, blender, toaster, coffee maker and bottle opener! With all the great inexpensive restaurants nearby, you may just want to use the microwave to warm up the leftovers. Hey, why cook in paradise, but if you want to, it is all there. Even better, Casa De Jefe has a full size washer and dryer! Pack light and just wash your clothes. No one will notice you wearing that same flowered shirt twice in the same week! Each bathroom is stocked with fluffy high quality towels and in the laundry room you will find additional beach towels. Each bedroom has its own mini-split air conditioning as well as the one for the shared area. Of course, being on the top floor you can often open the windows and enjoy the tropical breezes.

It is great to unplug on vacation, but if you are like me, you like to stay on the grid. Casa De Jefe features DSL Wi-Fi for your use. In addition to a local landline phone, we have a Vonage phone that will allow you to talk to the States and Canada as much as you want. (or as little ?) Friends and Family can call for the price they would pay to call Pennsylvania. (You don’t have to answer…) We have a couple of power strips to charge those electronic as well as a cord to connect your IPod to our small stereo.

Additionally, Casa De Jefe has a nice covered patio sitting area with a ceiling fan and ringed with plants – a nice place to relax in the evening or watch your family in the pool during the day. A large pool is there for your use and usually quiet. It has a nice shady palapa so you can sit by the pool out of the sun to enjoy a good book or a nap.

The complex features a gated parking area so your car, if you rent one, is secure as well as night time security staff. The area is safe and well lit for nighttime strolls. Located on the edge of the action, the area is peaceful at night, but you are a short walk to the nighttime action. There is a small public beach about one block north along the water with a beach club restaurant. South of the condo, restaurants and shops are everywhere. Be sure to check out Los Cinco Soles, one block west and 2 south, for great, quality souvenirs and memories. If we can help sharing our knowledge or love of ‘La Isla’ with you we are happy to do it. After all you will be staying in our home…

About Richard 'El Jefe and Susanita

'Susanita' and I fell in love with the Island of Cozumel in 2008 after visiting as new scuba divers. After a trip or two, we decided two things: 1. The diving in Cozumel was so wonderful, and 2. We wanted are little piece of Paradise. After searching and soul searching, we went all in and bought. While I am still not retired, I try to get down as much as possible among the many friendly people in the oasis of rest and relaxation.

Richard 'El Jefe and Susanita purchased this condo in 2010

Why Richard 'El Jefe and Susanita chose Colonia Centro

After searching the area and our wants, we knew we needed some room. We wanted to share the joys of Cozumel with family and friends, so we chose this beautiful unit at Las Ventanas. It was so tastefully decorated, we changed very little. Now we have a roomy place to share time in paradise.

What makes this condo unique

The beauty of Casa De Jefe for us is its proximity to everything in town. After a day on the dive boat or at a beach club or whatever, we can get cleaned up and stroll through El Centro and its many choices. Whether it is the upscale Kinta, a very affordable high quality Mexican Bistro whose food should grace the pages of a food magazine or a local cantina with mostly local families, or even some of the great street food, it is all there and close by. After dinner, stroll home along the water or stop at a friendly bar for a night cap, or hang out in the plaza and see what is going on, then stroll home. Of course mornings, you will want to stroll down to Zermatt bakery and snag some breakfast treats, again close enough to enjoy them there or home on the patio. Close to everything is why we chose Las Ventanas. (Really close. Not the kind where it's far away, but you can walk, rather the kind it's easier and faster to walk than drive even.)

Our third stay this year!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoy staying at Casa de Jefe for many reasons - comfortable beds, all the necessary amenities (elevator for building, reliable AC, daily maid service, W/D, microwave, coffee maker, etc), safe and quiet property one block from the main street by the ocean, numerous really good restaurants nearby, walking distance (5 to 20 minutes) to most places we frequent or need to reach and, if not, there's always inexpensive taxis. Richard, the owner, always responds promptly to rental inquiries or other questions.

Wonderful place to stay in Cozumel.

  • 5 of 5

Casa De Jefe is an amazing place to stay in Cozumel. The residence is spacious and clean, with every comfort you may need during your visit. You are only a short walk from fabulous restaurants, shops and the ferry pier. Rick, Susan and the staff at Las Ventanas are so very kind and helpful you'll never want to stay anywhere else. Forget the "All Inclusive" resorts. Don't be a tourist, be an adventurer. You can stay in Cozumel, Mexico or you can "live" in Cozumel via HomeAway / Case De Jefe. (At least for a week or so.)

Top Notch Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at Casa De Jefe was outstanding!

The owners, Rick & Susan, are incredibly thoughtful in providing everything you could possibly need to relax in style and enjoy all that Cozumel has to offer.

The condo is very clean, comfortable, and extremely spacious with stylish, beautiful decor and lots of special touches such as books, magazines, games and more to make it feel just like home.

The beds are very comfy and there are fans in each bedroom if you need them for the noise, as well as AC to stay cool.

The showers are great, never running short on hot water for our family of 4.

The kitchen has a great set up, fully stocked with every necessity you will need including a dishwasher, washer & dryer and so much more. If you need it, they probably have it, just ask. Patti, the property manager is excellent and attended to all inquires in a friendly, timely manner.

The pool is beautiful, clean and almost always empty, and very relaxing. The patio is also a great place to relax and do some bird watching, the humming birds are beautiful!

Rick & Susan provided so many wonderful tips on entertainment and restaurants to visit, that were all a quick, easy walk from the condo and fabulous. We were treated with exceptional hospitality everywhere we went.

The extra attention to detail made our stay at Casa De Jefe nothing short of AMAZING! Thank you Rick & Susan!!

Amazing island home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved this condo. So close to everything in town with access to many great restaurants and the beach is only a few blocks away. We hung out at the pool a lot, swimming and playing games under a palapa. Wonderfully spacious in the condo and the two bathrooms made it especially nice for 4 women to have enough space to get ready. Love, love, love it!

WOW.. Exactly as advertised and more

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten days in Paradise in April, 2017. Beds were comfy, A/C worked, ceiling fans were great, fully equipped kitchen, easy walking distance to the downtown pier for pickup, walked to almost everyone of our favourite restaurants.

We are looking at heading back in October.

Prompt replies to all queries, maintenance man arrived in minutes on the one tiny issue we had (loose plug on the dishwasher). Easy check in/check out. Easy payment, even from Canada with foreign exchange and foreign banks.

Casa De Jefe puts you right in the heart of El Centro with in an easy walk of the main plaza and all the downtown restaurants, so you can stroll to dinner and walk home along the Malecon next to the ocean.
