About the property

2 Bdrm Condo with a terrace on the beach, refreshing relaxing vibe yet in town

This grande 2 bedroom 2 bath condominium escape offers you the best the island of Cozumel has to offer. From your terrace enjoy the magical Caribbean Sea, pools and the beach. Step out the back door and you are in the city of San Miguel; a short stroll to shops, restaurants and groceries. Local management with exceptional maid service offers personal care not offered at similar venues. If you're yearning for a change from the islands all-inclusive resorts take a serious look at what a stay with us has to offer. You will have endless opportunities and easy access to explore local shops, restaurants and culture. When you choose to 'chill' the beach is right on your terrace.

When you enter this paradise on the beach, you will be drawn to the mystic view of the palm fronds swaying in the breeze and the sun sparkling on the turquoise water. This majestic view is offered as you stand in the spacious kitchen, dining and living area. Open the sliding glass doors to the terrace and take in the sea breeze and tropical garden surroundings. On the expansive terrace you will find lounge furniture for your waterfront enjoyment. Also on the terrace are sliding glass doors leading to one of the 2 King en-suites bedrooms.

Steps lead you from your terrace to the sandy beach of your front yard. The beach offers ample chairs and grass palapas for hours of beach enjoyment. Two Piers provide onsite pickup for divers and other water excursions. Put on your snorkel gear and jump into some great Caribbean snorkeling.

The pool area is next to the beach and includes a wading pool, a large infinity pool along with a hot tub. The large patio area provides ample seating and shade. An outdoor shower and dive gear rinse tanks are located near the public restroom.

Back to your condominium, which, by the way, is affectionately named Casa de Playa. The English translation is 'Beach House'. If this natural blend of luxury in the city, directly on the beach, sounds like your next vacation destination, please browse the pictures and video provided. This 5 Star resort offers many wonderful amenities; too many for this introductory description. We have attempted to detail these amenities throughout the VRBO listing. Hopefully you will find the answers to all of your questions. Don't hesitate to send us a inquiry if we can be of any assistance.

Great Location and Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location...easy walk to groceries, restaurants, and shopping. Condo was very nice. Staff support was excellent. No complaints here. Great vacation! Hope to do it again someday.

I would highly recommend flying directly into Cozumel...we flew into Cancun, which complicated the trip more than necessary. Condo was clean, roomy, and comfortable. Thanks!

Casa de Playa - Paradise in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa de Playa was fabulous. The condo is on the water with beautiful sunset views! Our dive operator Sea Robin, picked us up each morning right outside our condo. Very comfortable and the entire staff was outstanding! Highly recommend this place for a fun relaxing time in Cozumel. Walking distance to town! Jeff & Sarah provided tons of information and recommendations! Thank you for a wonderful time!

Beautiful place to stay in Cozumel!

  • 5 of 5

El Cantil and its owners were a pleasure from start to finish! Every little detail spoke of their dedication to customer service and a Five STAR Experience for us! Questions answered before we booked, pictures of condo were exactly what we found on arriving, condo was clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable, the pool and outdoor areas clean and well maintained, the staff was friendly and they have thought of every thing we would need for a wonderful visit to Cozumel! Thank you Jeff and Sarah for helping us have a relaxing and wonderful vacation. We look forward to visiting again and will surely stay at El Cantil!

Well appointed. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. Everything we needed was provided. The condo is well appointed and very comfortable. The beds were also very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped.

We are divers and were somewhat concerned that nothing can be hung out to dry on the porch. We used the second bathroom since it was only the two of us. However, we did notice many other balconies that had wet suits and bathing suits outside. It may be a rule that is not heavily enforced.

It is very convenient to downtown. The plaza is about 1 mile. If you are not up for a walk taxi's are plentiful and cheap. There is a pier at the complex where dive boats can pick up. We only used it one day. The rest of the time we met our DM at the marina. Taxi was 100 pesos ea. way.

FYI-we read the description of the property on an iPad which did not render completely. We thought there was a washer and dryer for the renter's use. It was not. We were able to give the cleaning service an additional tip and she did our laundry for us.

There are two reasons why we gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. Both points are minor and would not prevent us from staying in this condo again.

1. The condo is on the ground floor. Main door is not far from the street. There is a bit of street noise. Not much. With the door closed in the master bedroom we could not hear it. Not sure what it would have been like in the second bedroom.

2. While we were happy to be able to have the maid do our laundry for us, I would have expected a condo at this price point to provide access to the on-site washer and dryer. We've stayed at other condos where they were open for use by the renter and it was very convenient.

We would definitely stay in this condo again.

Beach-front Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in Casa de Playa (El Cantil Norte) for 10 days and loved every minute of it. The condo is VERY well appointed, especially the kitchen. You will find everything you need. The decor is thoughtful. I enjoyed looking at the wall hangings, as well as using the beautiful and practical Mexican bowls. The beds and couches were comfy. We had no trouble with the TVs and the dishwasher purred quietly, though the landline phones were a mystery despite copious written instructions. The wifi, alas, was the usual third world wifi, though I did manage to stream some recorded TV from home via my slingbox (albeit painstakingly slowly). The number one reason to stay at this condo, however, has got to be the view and the swimming pools, along with the ocean grotto from which you can easily snorkel. The property inside and out is clean and modern, and the yellow shirt employees are very attentive. We were able to walk to the grocery store, as well as many restaurants, within 20 minutes. The location was perfect for avoiding taxis most of the time. We would definitely return to this rental again!

About Sarah & Jeff

My daughter Sarah and I have been vacationing in Cozumel for more than 10 years. It was my wife Melissa’s love of the Mexican culture and Cozumel’s World Class Diving that first brought us here. OK, I admit it, the WORLD CLASS Diving brought me here and KEEPS me coming back. We lost Melissa to cancer shortly after our first trip to Cozumel.

During one of our many visits to Cozumel, and when dad thought she was ready, Sarah attempted her open water certification. Although an avid snorkeler still, diving is no longer a desire for her. For Sarah, sleeping in, shady beach palapas, sunny poolside reading, local fruit favorites and refreshing drinks keep her occupied while I am under water.

Sarah & Jeff purchased this condo in 2015

Why Sarah & Jeff chose Colonia Andres

I returned to Cozumel last winter, yet another necessary escape from the cold Michigan winter. This was the first time I looked into purchasing Cozumel property. I knew I wanted waterfront and close to town. The island has a lot to offer but town is where things happen. As the Realtor led us through the El Cantil condominium complex I became excited about this in town paradise. When I walked through the Casa de Playa unit I was convinced this would be our beach escape. Shortly after my visit Sarah flew down for her Spring Break, she instantly agreed that Casa de Playa needed to be ours.

Unfortunately we can’t stay in Cozumel full time. I’m still trying to figure out retirement and Sarah is working on her undergraduate degree. We have decided to rent out our piece of beach paradise to help us make the rent. This is our first experience as vacation rental owners. We know that El Cantil condominiums have great visitor reviews and enjoy return visitors year after year. We are confident our owner experience will be rewarding. We are more confident that visitors to Casa de Playa will have a memorable experience, in fact, we intend to ensure you do.

Warm Regards, Jeff & Sarah
