About Barbara Heywood

We are long time Colorado residents living in the mountains so we love heading to Cozumel for the fabulous scuba diving, beaches and tropical island lifestyle.

Barbara Heywood purchased this condo in 2013

Why Barbara Heywood chose Cozumel

Cozumel was our #1 choice to own a condo after many years of beach vacations and dive trips. The Caribbean Sea is enchanting and we always love coming back to our island paradise and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

We had stayed in several condos in Residencias Reef and elsewhere on the island before deciding to buy in Cozumel. When we first walked in to #5240 we had that WOW EXPERIENCE you hope for! The light & bright corner unit and the views are stunning!! The layout of the 2 master suites is private and the great room is right where all the action is with the beach and the pool right outside the terrace. The complex is gated with 24/7 security, the grounds are gorgeous and meticulously maintained. This location feels like you have the island to yourself although restaurants and activities are only a short drive or taxi ride away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in the condo a number of times, both in the summer and winter. The condo is the perfect location on the island and is an excellent choice for a perfect "home away from home."



The owners are extremely gracious and helpful and take pride in keeping their unit clean and polished for the vacationers. The housekeeping is top shelf and the management is super and always available for questions and answers.

The interior details of the condo are wonderful, and the location is truly" A "plus. Sitting out on the balcony watching the sunset, or sunrise, whatever the time of day...is truly the most relaxing and the most peaceful moments of the vacation.



We love the beach, pools, and the location to the dock is perfect. We love walking the

beach and visiting the spa at the Hotel near by. We always look forward to our vacations knowing that our " home away from home" is so highly maintained and the owners and management are always there if we need anything! We highly recommend this condo for couples and families! We always have a wonderful time.

Fabulous appartment

  • 5 of 5

We been to Cozumel 10 years in a row and love the island

We stayed for 3 weeks in appartment 5240, amazing view, great size of the rooms, and great with 2 bathrooms.

The owners are amazing and had everything organized for us. We had cleaning twice a week and all equipment we needed for our stay.

We recommend this appartment for everyone that want the best view and the best place to stay at Recidencias Reef.

Thank you so much Barbara and George for the best vacation of our 10 years in Cozumel.

Simply Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Barbara's unit #5240, second floor, a two bedroom/two bathroom unit on the beach and next to the pool. What a wonderful experience for us as we usually travel to higher end all inclusive resorts. This unit had every single thing you might need from beach towels, to snorkel fins, to a lime press (yummy margaritas were made) to a washer/dryer. The condo is spacious and very comfortable with a wrap around balcony. It was perfect on those windy days where it would have been uncomfortable on the beach but not on the balcony on the beach! The views were spectacular and everything was as advertised by the owner, Barbara. The water is purified, but bottled water may be more to your liking; no problem just load up at the Mega store or there is a small and I mean very small mini mart walking distance on the road across from the Secrets that has bottled water, drinks and a taco stand. Additionally there is another taco stand closer on the street called Don Chely which also has great food and open for breakfast and lunch. The beach clubs are walking distance to the condos also for drinks, food, and fun. These are all only open until about 5:00 however, so dinner is either cooked within your gorgeous kitchen, Room Service delivery from any restaurant in town or explore many of the most awesome restaurants throughout Cozumel. The unit has great wifi, english television stations, many seating areas and all the comforts of home which you do not need to bring with you. Barbara was always on point with her communication and very helpful with whatever your questions were of the area. There was always a place at the pool or beach and unlike the resorts, the 'towel game' is not played here so everyone can enjoy a seating area whenever they choose. This is a great unit outside of town in a quiet area, but access to some day time food and supplies is easy and the road along the condo community is great for walking or running if you choose. Thank you Barbara for allowing us to stay in your terrific condo for a wonderful week in heavenly Cozumel!!

Owner's Response: Hi Janet, I'm so glad you enjoyed our slice of paradise in Cozumel. We have been fans of renting condos for vacations for many years - you really feel like you live there, ALMOST like a local . . . . We would love to have you return to #5240 for your next trip to Cozumel.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples age 46-65) stayed here in Oct 2016. Just realized I never posted a review. We had no problems during our stay and everything was as advertised. Beautiful condo and beautiful grounds and beach. Located on main road leaving town so commute back and forth was very easy. I'm tempted to leave a bad review just to help make sure the condo will be available again the next time we visit Cozumel. :-)

There is no restaurant within walking distance so keep that in mind for meals with the exception of a place next door that offers you a day pass for food and pool access. Too pricey for us so we passed.

Car rental is advised. You will want to explore the island anyway so go ahead and reserve one. Scooters are also available but carrying luggage that way didn't appeal to us. You can rent a car at the airport or at the Playa del Carmen ferry port.

All in all we can't wait to go back and hopefully this unit will be available.

Amazing location on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Condo is beautiful with a great location and well equipped and maintained. Owner was very responsive to all questions and the total experience was fantastic.

Complex has great amenities as well. Private beach that is well maintained. Bring footwear as shoreline is rocky but the beach is beautiful. In addition, there is a private pool that is also very nice. Location is several miles from town so you need transportation or taxi for shopping but it is not far at all and location keeps things safe and quiet for families.

I would highly recommend the facility and I believe this particular condo was one of the best available.

Excelent

  • 5 of 5

Everything worked out well with the owner, no surprises at all. Barbara was always very responsive and helpful answering all the questions we had before arriving.

The development is well mantained and the condo is in good shape, it is clear that the owner keeps good attention to details. It is a great place to relax since the development is not crowed, something we were looking for and enjoyed. The pool and beach area are fantastic.

We had a great time, certainly will consider it when visiting again Cozumel.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The condo is just right, probably the best location in the entire complex. It is clean and beautifully decorated with an excellent view of the beach, sunsets, palm trees from the living room, dining area, kitchen and bedroom. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. We made our breakfast and one other meal every day. The kitchen was fully equipped. DVR and Dish TV are great at the end of the day if you want to catch up on the news.

Any questions we had were quickly answered by the owner or the property manager. The home owner has made a book with lists of resources including grocery stores and other points of information that was very helpful. Every restaurant we tried that the owners recommended was excellent.

We rented a car for the week and it really made the trip a lot more flexible. Getting around the island was easy. Parking at the condo was convenient. The property owner had a couple of sets of snorkeling gear for our use.

We snorkled or walked the beach every day. We went to the Eco park with the lighthouse on the south end of the island. What an incredible day of hiking and snorkeling (bring your own snorkeling gear and tip the staff person to swim with you out to the reef). It is the best reef we saw all week.

We toured San Gervasi, the Mayan historic sites on the south end of the island. It was a lot of fun and interesting. If we had time, we would have gone to the mainland for a fuller experience but this site was great for adding to a quiet week in Cozumel.

Again, the property was just as described, clean, modern, well appointed. We will be back.
