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.

Amazing Condo, Great Location, Best Vacation!
We vacationed at this beautiful condo for 5 nights in June of 2018 with our 3 children (ages 12, 14, an 16). We have used VRBO for many vacations and this condo was truly the nicest we have stayed in. I am a former travel agent and frequent user of VRBO but this is the first time I have taken the time to write a review online...that is how much I recommend this place! When planning our trip we first looked at all inclusive resorts but are so happy we found this place and avoided the all inclusives. Barbara was great to deal with and provided all the necessary information for our stay. The condo was clean and spacious and the view and wrap around patio is priceless!
My husband and 2 of 3 children are divers and were picked up from the pier next door at Secrets for a nominal fee of $2 per person per day. Arm bands for the pier can be purchased at the security shack at the entrance. They used Cozumel Marine World for diving and were pleased. Another couple we met used Diving with Christina and highly recommended her.
The complex is quiet and there is absolutely no competition for beach or pool lounges. The beach is maintained by maintenance each morning. We enjoyed the pool and beach in a matter of seconds from our condo! We snorkeled right off of the beach during the day and at night.
We rented a jeep (car rental highly recommended as it is about 10-12 min south of town) and toured the island.
-loved the windward side and recommend Reggae Beach Bar at the tip of the island--great food and fabulous hammocks (cash only);
-loved shopping downtown on Sunday when there are no ships in port
-got groceries at both Mega and Chedrauli (we prefer Chedrauli)
-Best lobster and lion fish at La Perlito
-KaoKao Chocolate factory tour was fabulous and fun for everyone.
-We walked (less than 3 min) to Carlos and Charlies for lunch, jet ski rental, parasailing, and banana boat ride.
The views from the master bedroom, living area, and patio are extraordinary! We got great use out of the washer and dryer and cooked most of our meals in the well appointed kitchen. If you are looking for a place to relax, enjoy the beach and pool, and avoid the crazy crowds and armbands...this is the place. We plan to be back as soon as possible!
Jennifer, I'm so glad you and your family had a great vacation at our condo in Residencias Reef!! We love the location as well, and as you found, there are plenty of fun things to do along the beach in addition to our gorgeous beach and pools. We look forward to having you back for your next Cozumel vacation and dive trip.
I've been coming here for 7 years and this condo was the best kept and supplied that I have stayed in. Everything thing in it was great. Thank you Barbara and George for allowing us to stay at your place.
We're so glad you had a great vacation and we look forward to having you stay in our condo again on your next trip to Cozumel.
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.

We're so glad you enjoyed our 2 bedroom beachfront condo in Residencias Reef! We look forward to having you next year once again in our 1 bedroom condo! It's wonderful you can have a long holiday from the cold weather in Norway.
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!!
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.
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.
I'm happy to hear your group enjoyed our beachfront condo at Residencias Reef last fall. I look forward to having you back on your next trip to Cozumel !!
Amazing location on the Beach
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.
Cliff, I'm so glad you had a wonderful vacation with your teenagers and you enjoyed our condo on your first trip to Mexico! Hopefully, it was the first of many and you'll return to Casa Heywood in the future.
Our condo is in the perfect location to enjoy the many activities Cozumel has to offer or to DO NOTHING but relax and enjoy the surf, sand and sun!!
