About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4



AN OCEANFRONT PENTHOUSE IN PARADISE

One of the few two-bedroom penthouse condominiums nestled in the elegant Residencias Reef community, Casa Gonzales has views that are arguably among the best on the island, plus amenities that rival those of even the most expensive resorts.

Each of this unit’s two bedrooms face west, providing you with unending views of the azure waters of the Caribbean and flawless white-sand beaches during the day and the most incredible sunsets at night.

Not only do you tower above all the other condos, but you also have access to the rooftop observation deck  that gives you panoramic vistas from every angle. Head up here to take in the view and bring along a cocktail for a magical sunset.

Both of the expertly appointed bedrooms face west, allowing spectacular view of the sunset but buffering any intrusive light in the morning, so you can sleep in on your vacation. Isn't it nice when you don't have to set an alarm clock?


The condo’s master bedroom is just beyond the beautiful French doors, where you will be spoiled by a king-sized bed, high thread-count linens, a gorgeous attached bath with magnificent tile accents, and sliding glass doors that open up to the huge ocean-facing terrace.

The second bedroom is equally opulent, and boasts two queen-size beds plus an ensuite with a bath/shower combination and plenty of counter and storage space.

The spacious and beautifully decorated common area between the two bedrooms opens up directly to the terrace and features an overstuffed L-shaped couch, an entertainment center with a 42-inch flat screen TV with an extensive cable lineup, a DVD player and free phone service for calls to the U.S. and Canada. Free Wi-Fi is also included and can be accessed from every room.

The kitchen will bring out the chef in you—and to creaste your culinary masterpieces, you'll find large appliances along with the small ones that you can’t do without, plus all the dish and cookware you could possibly need during your stay.

You'll have plenty to work with too--Cozumel has many local markets where fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood, poultry and more are available at very low prices.

You can dine indoors at the formal table, or enjoy snacks and beverages on your outdoor terrace. The ocean and beach views, along with the scenic community landscape, may well compel you to spend a lot of time out there.

When you’re ready to do more than just look at the amenities, head downstairs for a hands-on experience of the great outdoors. Homeowners have taken great steps to ensure that this property is spectacularly maintained, and it’s clear that they have succeeded. The lawn and garden are sculpted and manicured, and each of the two freshwater pools are sparkling clean. Want more?

Good, because there is a lot more to enjoy. Like the poolside Jacuzzi, SCUBA and snorkeling gear rinse tank, an outdoor shower, palapas and palm trees by the dozen.

A few steps away is the famed white-sand beach and multi-hued blue waters of the Caribbean, and you are welcome to enjoy all the amenities. You can take off on a SCUBA or snorkeling adventure—they’ll even pick you up at the nearby dock—or you can just body surf in the warm water and gentle swells that lap the beach. There are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat (some even deliver) or a cold drink.

For a vacation that rises far above the rest, choose the penthouse Casa Gonzales within the oceanfront oasis of Reef Residencias. Your top choice for a picture-perfect Caribbean vacation.

Location

Cozumel is Mexico's largest island. It is 28 miles long by 9 miles wide and resides on the east side of Mexico in the Yucatan Peninsula. It is separated from the mainland by 12 miles of clear blue tropical ocean. You can get here by plane or ferry, or you can simply hop on one of the many cruise ships that frequent the island daily (though you'll only spend one day here if you choose the latter, and that would simply be a shame!).

Cozumel has an incredibly rich history. The Maya first settled the island over 2000 years ago, the Spanish put the island on the world map with their conquest of the Yucatan Peninsula in the 1500s, and Jacques Cousteau launched it into the stratosphere in the 1960s by describing to the world the richness of the underwater life in the coral reef surrounding the island.

Present day Cozumel is a mix of tourism brought to the island by the building of a cruise ship terminal in the early 1970s, the divers that continue to come to the island to frequent the reef system, the handful of foreigners who came to the island to open businesses (including us!), and of course the local residents who, as you will find out if you come, are the most wonderful, hospitable people in the Caribbean!

The island currently inhabits about 95,000 full-time residents, most of whom live in and around the main town of San Miguel.

The Cozumel Ironman is a new event for the island; it started in 2009. It's been a pretty huge deal for the island since it attracts nearly 2500 athletes and is only one of 24 Ironman qualifying races in the world. 2009 and 2010 went off without a hitch and so we're really looking forward to the event in 2013. It's fantastic to have so many dedicated athletes come to the island and enjoy it's beauty in a completely different way from the rest of us. After all, we don't typically get up at 7am and go for a 2.4 mile swim!

For the last three years, we had a number of athletes stay with us. Many stayed at two resorts in which we manage a number of condos and villas: Residencias Reef and Costa del Sol. Both places are really convenient for race participants and their families/friends: 1) they're right on the water 2) they're right on the bike/marathon course 3) most importantly, they're 10-15 min away from Chankanaab, the start of the race. So you get to stay in a beautiful comfortable place, away from the crowds that are staying at the big race-sponsored resorts, and still have the opportunity to jump in the water to practice, cruise the bike route, or check out the start beforehand.

Ruins of Cozumel

San Gervasio

Perhaps during your stay or visit to Cozumel you can take a half-day trip to Cozumel's main Maya archeological site, San Gervasio. The site is located approximately in the center of the island just off of the Transversal, the road that takes you to the east side of the island. Though this ruin site is nowhere near the size or as impressive as the sites located on the mainland, it was once a very important site where Mayan woman paid tribute to the goddess of love & fertility. The site has bilingual guides, a snack bar as well as a gift shop. The entrance fee to San Gervasio is about $7USD.
