About the property

This amazing, 6 bedroom oceanfront property is located 20 minutes outside of San Miguel de Cozumel, on the south side of the island.


Casa Refugio is an amazingly beautiful and elegant six-bedroom oceanfront property located 20 minutes outside the main strip in Cozumel, and includes a gorgeous main house and an equally enchanting bungalow, an ocean-facing freshwater pool, a huge green lawn and colorful gardens, and easy access to the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean.

You’ll be captivated by the stunning views as you step inside the main residence—the downstairs area is rimmed by huge sliding glass doors that bring the light in and invite you to venture out on the deck and enjoy gazing at the pool, landscaping, and ocean.

The superb sunken living room has a comfortable L-shaped couch, providing plenty of room for you and your traveling companions to kick back and enjoy the scenery, compliments of the abundant windows. Want to check in at work or with family and friends? There’s a small office in the residence where you can take a conference call or check email.

The kitchen, which has an attached breakfast nook with seating for six, is fully equipped with all the appliances you might need on your vacation including double ovens, a dishwasher, a big refrigerator and a variety of small appliances such as a toaster, blender, coffee maker, and all the pots, pans and utensils you crave to create a culinary masterpiece.

In addition to the kitchen seating area, there is a beautifully appointed formal dining room with seating for 10 and even a kid-friendly dining spot with room for eight. Last but not least, the home comes equipped with a wet bar, where you can whip up your favorite tropical concoctions.

Each of the upstairs bedrooms features magnificent vaulted ceilings and adjoining baths that are fabulously appointed and functional. Two of the bedrooms boast king-sized beds, while the third comes furnished with two queens. As well, two bedrooms have their own walk-out balconies with stunning views of the ocean. If that weren’t enough, the master bedroom has a jetted Jacuzzi tub—imagine soaking in the luxury of this home after a long day of fun in the sun!

But don't discount that magnificent bungalow.  Great care has been taken to ensure that this additional space will please even the choosiest of travelers. The two bedrooms and two baths that fill this completely charming home are  both spacious and inviting.

To make your vacation as comfortable as possible, your hosts have included maid service every other day, an in-home washer and dryer, purified drinking water, a generous supply of beach towels, and cable TV.

This well-maintained property is adorned by a lush lawn and manicured gardens, that sparkling freshwater pool, and several hundred feet of ocean access. Descend the stairs to the dock where you can take off for a little swimming and snorkeling, or arrange to be picked up by boat for SCUBA diving, fishing, sightseeing, or a glass-bottom boat  tour.

When you’re up for a night out, head to downtown Cozumel, a 20-minute drive away. Stroll along the oceanfront promenade for a bit of shopping or sightseeing. Restaurants, bars and vendors selling everything from homemade tacos to hand-crafted fabrics line the promenade, as well as duty-free stores and nice boutiques. You can watch the cruise ships dock or the ferry boats come in—and if you want to schedule a SCUBA or glass-bottom boat snorkeling excursion, you’ll find a provider on virtually every street.

For a tropical retreat that will keep you coming back year after year, reserve Casa Refugio in Cozumel today.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Refugio is spectacular- comfortable and spacious- nicely decorated- huge kitchen- comfortable beds- nice large walk in showers. We definite enjoyed our stay and would come again- there is nice grass yard if you have children which would be a great area for them to play. Also appreciated separate AC units in bedrooms so you could adjust to your liking. The manager Diana responded promptly to our request for grill (is round charcoal grill)- Rosario did a great job cleaning every other day- and the caretaker Isidro although does not speak much English was there to assist in any way he could.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

I can't speak highly enough about the quality of this property or the warm hospitality of the staff and groundskeeper. To top things off, the chef recommended by Emily at Cozumel Chef was a showstopper. Our friends said the property, and the service made them feel like VIPs. The grounds are perfect and and well maintained and the sunsets over the seawall are something that money can't buy. We plan on returning again as soon as we can. We had a tiny issue that was handled perfectly. Our last day was bittersweet. We could've stayed much longer.

We came to Cozumel after a friends wedding in Cancun. 10 adults, no children :-) We arrived to a wonderful greeting by Diana the house Manager. Our Maid opened the door with a smile and we were in love! The furniture and art work was amazing! The pool was the perfect setting with the trees! Walking down to the water was amazing! We were able to snorkel right there! We didn't have sandy beach but with the pool and the ability to just step in the water it didn't matter! We had chef service by Fernando and WOW! He was amazing and the food was perfect! He understood English and was able to modify for food allergies!

The most amazing service, most amazing view, lots of privacy and PLENTY of room! we can't wait to come back! We will bring our children next time!!!

Casa Refugio

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Refugio. The house and grounds were clean and well maintained, the ocean views were spectacular (especially at sunset) and the gated entry was a nice feature. Our dive boat could not dock right at the property but there is a pier next door which worked well. We would definitely rent this place again.

Our stay at Casa Refugio in Cozumel, Mexico

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house. The setting is wonderful! We went swimming and snorkeling right off the back of the property and loved playing on the grounds and in the swimming pool. The staff (manager, maid, security guard) was excellent! It is convenient to town, shopping , the main Mayan ruins, and the lighthouse and park (great snorkeling) on the southern point of the island.

We Had A Blast

  • 5 of 5

The only really bad thing I have to say about Refugio is how depressed I was when I got back to Chicago!! Refugio really felt (and still feels) like home. The island is small enough to navigate it without concerns about getting lost. We did some touristy things but mostly laid back and relaxed. The on-site caretaker, Isidro, is the BEST. He accommodated our every need and then some. He was present without being intrusive. There were 11 of us and we had more than enough room to spread out. You really can't go wrong with this choice!
