We've been renting Casa La Roja for over a dozen years and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay on each occasion. The house is very functional & comfortable whether for a week or for a month or more. Each year the owner makes a few improvements. The house is always well maintained, clean and in tip top shape when we arrive.
We rent the first floor which features a full kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dining area, a living room and a quiet spacious back patio with a built in brick grill. . There’s a separate apartment on the second floor containing two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, living room and large balcony; and, the third floor has a single bedroom. The house has tasteful furniture throughout, a television, and air conditioning in the bedrooms as well as fans in every room (we rarely need to use the air-conditioning).
Although we enjoy Cozumel’s many fine restaurants we also cook in or take out from time to time. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking or you can use the built in brick grill on the back patio. For divers there’s a rinse tank for gear on the back patio and a secure area for hanging dive equipment.
Casa La Roja is in the charming Corpus Christi neighborhood. We always feel as if we are part of the neighborhood instead of being in a gated tourist community. The house is about one block from the magnificent Corpus Christi church and the square in front of the church where there are often events, music, etc. This is a safe neighborhood – as is all of Cozumel – and the house is very secure
The house is about a 25 minute walk from downtown (or a 5 minute car or cab ride). If you rent a car there is plenty of parking available on the street. Casa La Roja is about a 10 minute walk from two large supermarkets and excellent restaurants.
Teresa, who cares for the house and looks after the guests, is attentive & always helps out with whatever is required. The house has internet and a television which is nice to occasionally get a news fix on CNN, BBC, Fox etc.
We think this is a great house which we will continue to rent in the upcoming years. We’ve recommended it to several friends who have all thanked us for the recommendation.
