Cozumel Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condominium - 2 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 6)

Casa Caribe Azul, a luxury two bedroom/two bath Cozumel Condo is in, undeniably, one of the most prime locations in Cozumel. No Car is needed. The view from the private terrace is stunning.

Located on the ground floor directly in front of the pool. No elevators or stairs to deal with. Just step off the terrace and enjoy.

Stepping through the front door, you will be astonished by the panorama of impossibly blue turquoise waters that can be viewed through the sliding glass doors that lead to your private terrace. Step off the terrace and you are at the beautiful tri-level heated pool and the Beach area. You will definitely enjoy the direct access to the pool, beach and Ocean that this condo offers.

Built with luxury in mind. Granite countertops, beautiful Mexican Tile, three-zone air conditioning, FREE High speed Internet, FREE calls to the United States. FREE Dish Network satellite TV. Water is purified throughout the condo with U.V and reverse osmosis technology.

Divers Paradise: For divers, this condo is ideal. You can relax in your condo while awaiting dive boat pickup at our dock right in front of the condo. There is a rinse tank, outdoor shower and locked gear storage located in the secured parking garage below the condo.

Casa Caribe Azul is perfectly located. There is a large store (similar to a super Wal Mart) across the street and you are within an easy walk to town. Casa Caribe Azul offers a combination of conveniences at your front door and the offerings of the Ocean in your back yard.

Direct Beach & Pool Access: Step off the Terrace. You are there!

If this were a hotel, this would be the prime room location.

Poolside, Beachside and Oceanside.

It's all right there.

About Mark & Lynn Kay

Mark and I work in the human services field in La Crosse, Wisconsin. I am a diver and Mark is a Divemaster with over 500 dives. We have been to many different countries on dive trips but we kept coming back to Cozumel over and over. Cozumel has a charm that we have not found anywhere else. We have been coming here since 1997. We are both very pleased that we chose Casa Caribe Azul as our second home. Mark & Lynn Kay

Mark & Lynn Kay purchased this condo in 2009

Why Mark & Lynn Kay chose Cozumel

After many trips to Cozumel, Lynn and I were working on building our retirement home on the South end of the Island near the Reef club. The land that we thought we were buying was sold out from under us. It must have been 'meant to be' because I noticed a new condominium going up right next door to the place (Plaza Las Glorious) Lynn and I loved so much because of its location. I found out from the developer that it was going to be built to the highest standards and would be the only 5 star on the Island. We made the right choice and are planning on retiring in Cozumel.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the best location in Cozumel. Close to town yet worlds away. We can walk to everything and not worry about a car or taxi. To wake up every morning and look out over the Ocean is wonderful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know that your condo was everything and more than we expected. It was even better that the pictures on the internet! We didn't expect to be able to walk right out onto the pool deck. Which is gorgeous! The view was breath taking. We were able to watch the sun set right outside our door on the pool deck. The location was perfect. It was close enough to town. We walked to town many times. We enjoyed the square on Sunday nights with all the local musicians and artists. We walked to the ferry and took a trip to Playa Del Carmen one of the days. We felt very safe. The grocery stores were so close. They even let us push the cart across the street to the condo and one of the security people had someone return the cart! The housekeeper was absolutely wonderful. Very thorough and efficient. I had fun practicing my Spanish. Adi' was very sweet. All your information you provided, led us to wonderful helpful people.

Dan and Kristy logged 16 dives and went with Papa Hoggs. They came and picked them up at the El Cantill dock each morning they went. They took them to all the places they want to go and many of the places you recommended.

We rented a vehicle from John at Less Pay. They didn't have a Safari. We got a jeep the first day and then decided we weren't open air jeep people and we switched to a car. He was very accommodating because we didn't want the car on the day that we had reserved it so he just waited until we need it. He even had one of his people take us to the airport for tips when it was finally time to leave.

We absolutely plan on returning to Cozumel. We have also been telling our friends about your place.

Thank you so much for a wonderful wonderful vacation!

Luxurious and full of class. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation. We have always stayed on the Southern end of the island near the Reef Club and didn't realize we could stay in a lovely condo on the ocean so close to town. The nine mile drive really got to us. The location of Casa Caribe Azul condo made for a great time. We loved it.

The two grocery stores were very convenient. Less than a five minute walk from your door. We love exercise so we really liked walking downtown for shopping and great restaurants. Two nights we did take a cab to restaurants that are a little farther out but ended up having the driver drop us off downtown on the way back as we really came to enjoy our nightly walk.

As I am not a diver I spend more time actually enjoying the essence of a condo more than my husband. We finally found a place where I felt completely relaxed, as it was evident the owners attended to the little details like fine linens and bedding that are so important to me. The artwork was so cheery and a fun mix of fine prints from the states and local artists. Hoping to re book next year so we can bring our grandson and our daughter who has just started scuba diving. I think my daughter and I will enjoy the fact that we can keep a watchful eye on her son swimming in the pool right from the condo patio. Thanks again. Hope to be back soon.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently enjoyed our stay at this very comfortable, clean and well-located condominium. The property managers were very helpful and promptly came by the unit once we arrived. We had not been to Cozumel since 2001 and it has changed quite a bit (too many cruise ships), but we had a great time. The size of the unit was just right and the beds were the most comfortable I can remember ever having in our numerous travels in Mexico. Loved having breakfast every morning on the balcony looking at the ocean. Hardly anyone was staying at El Cantil that week and we felt like we had the pool to ourselves. Maid service was excellent and so was the El Cantil staff. Thank you very much for accommodating us. We would definitely stay in this unit again.

Great Location and Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Cozumel was a wonderful vacation experience!!! The condo has a great ocean view and is conveniently located on the first floor with easy access to the pool and snorkel area. Shopping, restaurants and the grocery store are within walking distance. The condo is well equipped and very clean. Mark and Laurie were very helpful to provide information/recommendations while visiting Cozumel: dive companies, activities, restaurants, sightseeing, etc. We would absolutely recommend this condo and look forward to renting it in the future.

Perfect Location and perfect week in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

We've been missing the view from the condo every day since we left. Lovely Condo - well equipped and in nice condition. View of the pool and open water - amazing. The staff at El Cantil are gracious, always present, always ready to assist - the kind of attention you'd expect from an all -inclusive. Laurie and Jim do a great job as the condo property managers. Before our stay - Mark was incredibly responsive with helpful information about the island and logistics. PERFECT LOCATION - easy walk into town, easy walk to the grocery store. The clarity of the water in Cozumel - OMG!! We did an excursion with Mystic Snorkeling - We were taken to 3 spots - El Cielo, Columbia and Palancar and even as snorkelers saw a ton - I would definitely recommend this outfit for your future guests. Rosie and Cuchi were excellent and Cuchi is an amazing guide/diver. We switched back and forth between cheap dinners (compliments of Chedraui - grocery store) in the condo and going out: La Mission, Guido's and Buccano's at Night were all awesome & special nights. Rented a car for a few days to explore the island and went to Coconuts (lunch) and Punta Sur (park/beach). Definitely recommend the condo.

My husband and I took our 13 yr-old son and 18-yr-old daughter and had a wonderful time. The condo was very clean and conveniently located to the grocery store, restaurants and shopping. We especially liked the condo's location to the pool and the breathtaking ocean view from the living room. Everyone was so friendly. We felt like we were home. We can't wait to book our next trip there. We would definetly recommend this rental. We absolutely loved it.

El Cantil - Unit LBN

  • 5 of 5

Owner: Mark / Lynn Kay; On-Site Representative: Laurie / Kiel

Overall: unit is well appointed, very functional (we stayed a month). Unit is bright, large, and as advertised. Prior to arrival, we worked out rental agreement, arrival logistics with Mark. He was always helpful and quickly responsive.

Unit faces water and provides easy access to pool and hot tub Hint: pool staff need to be asked / reminded to turn on warm water so pool temperature is raised. But, on sunny days (frequent) pool temperature is not an issue.

Maid service was provided on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. This was adequate for our needs. We made a special request to have access to on-site washer / dryer which Mark granted. This was a big help for a tropical vacation so you don’t need to take as much “stuff” - and especially true for SCUBA divers. As to diving, there is a dock right behind El Cantil so pick up by boats is very easy. On return from dive, there are two dive tanks (different locations) to rinse out dive equipment.

Underneath El Cantil are storage lockers (large – with hangers) to store dive equipment and parking if you have a car (warning: very tight turn on entry to garage). Bring your own lock if you are going to use a dive locker.

El Cantil has a small café open for breakfast at the rooftop level. Cost is $4 per person and coupons can be purchased at front desk from Ramon or Claudia. Breakfast includes cereals, fruits, toast, eggs (your choice), and chef special of day. It’s quick and great for dive days when you want to get the day started early.

Car: not necessary

Over the past five years the number of condos available in Cozumel have exploded. I can see how difficult it could be for the first time visitor to Cozumel to find the best experience available. As an owner and long time visitor, I offer the following suggestions on what to look for:


Is the property right on the Ocean?

Don’t compromise. Whether it be crossing a busy boulevard or a enduring an elevator ride it is not necessary. We are located right on the Ocean. Step off the terrace, and you are at the beautiful tri level pool and beach.


How far is it to town and grocery stores? You get dropped off at the condo and you have no groceries and refreshments. Now What?

San Miguel is where most of the excellent restaurants are located. San Miguel is also where all the action is. Shopping and Sunday night town gatherings are just a few of the activities that you do not want to miss. We are any easy walk to town.

Other Activities: Swim with the Dolphins, glass bottom boats, sunset party cruises
