Guestbook comments from the owner
Hey Patsy,

I mailed out the check for 1057.50 today. Hopefully I didn't wait too late and lose the unit. I am really sorry. Maria and I went on a vacation to St. Martin for our anniversary and just got back. Needless to say, that place pales in comparison to Cozumel. Trash all over the beach....people on the island so lazy they could care less about the tourists...units with bugs and in ill repair (and this was at a resort with a Gold Crown RCI rating)...just not a very good time. I can't tell you how much better our experience was with your place. We are SO looking forward to coming back to paradise and wiping the memory of St. Trash Island out of our mind.

Regards,

Larry

My wife and I, along with our two boys live in Northern Colorado. Patsy is an independent dental hygienist and I'm retired. Our son Dustin owns a contracting company in the Boulder area. Our son Matt is a student at Colorado State University. Our lives have been enriched by the people and their culture that surrounds this beautiful island.

Patsy purchased this condo in 2010

We first visited Cozumel while we were on a cruise ship back in 1996. We came back again the following year and we loved the island so much we just kept coming back. Since we were spending so much time on Isle of Cozumel we looked into buying here. We bought our condo back in 2005, right about the time hurricane Wilma hit. We were able to start renting our condo in Jan 2007.

It's hard to beat the view from the patio of the beach and Cozumel Sunsets. You're just steps away from the beach. The property has two private pools & private beach area. Our condo is setup with stainless steel appliances, cooking equipment, American DISH TV service, wireless Internet & large screen TV (living room) with flat screen TV's available in each bedroom.

Great vacation and beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation in 295545 - such a lovely home - all was perfect! The condo is very well appointed with everything that we could need. And, the lcoation is wonderful! This 2 bedroom unit is spacious and very upscale. The owner has made her home so accommodating - and the large fluffy beach towels, very complete kitchen and patio with comfortable furniture. The beach is uncrowded with nice lounge chairs and big palm trees to provide plenty of shade. There is pretty good snorkeling at the pier right next door. And, we did a snorkeling tour that picked us up at that pier - very convenient.
Veronica, the housekeeper is amazing! She cooked us two meals - YUM! And, such a delightful person. Luis, the property manager was very hospitable and helpful ( especially letting us know how to take care of our parking ticket!).
We loved Cozumel and are planning on coming back next year.
You do need to rent a car as the town is about 15 minutes north. Also, there is no beach bar at the complex (there are beach clubs very close by) so it is a good idea to stock up with some groceries at the Mega on your way from the airport.
We feel fortunate that we ended up choosing this condo complex - I think it is one of the nicest places to stay on the island.
By the way, had some great dinners out including Guidos, Kinta and Kondessa.

AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My Husband and I along with another couple stayed in this condo and it was fantastic. The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. The condo has top of the line furniture, including bedding and couches. Veronica, the maid came six of the seven days, she was very good. We didn't have her make up a meal but I wish we would have. The best part of the condo is the location, ocean front! Patsy has thought of everything in the condo, and is readily available to answer any questions that might come up. There is snorkeling or swimming in the ocean a few steps from the condo, the snorkeling is amazing. I will be staying here again next time I vacation in Cozumel. Overall, the island is just amazing! My husband and I fell in love with every part of it, but mostly the people. Everyone is so nice and helpful. If you're considering staying here you won't be disappointed.

AWESOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The condo we stayed at Residencia Reef is AWESOME!! You know it is good when the only thing the unit is lacking is koozies for my beers:) We went to Cozumel November 2012 and stayed at the Secrets all inclusive next door. However, Residencia Reef is much better. From the condo we stayed, the proximity to the beach is literally about 10 steps from the patio. Having a ground level, beach front unit is priceless in my book. The entry into the water is rocky, but that is why you are able to stand in the water and eventually you will see fish right there. We shared the unit with another couple and the living space has plenty of room to share. My husband is 6'10" and the other guy is 6'4" so it was great that both bedrooms had king beds. Furniture was comfortable and did not look worn. Veronica was great. We had her cook two meals and each was great. Having housekeeping come six days out of the seven was nice, but in my book, not necessary. We went to Albertos one night for supper and our meal and evening was very enjoyable. My husband scuba dived three days with Dive With Allison and he thought his experience was much better than last year. The security at the front gate made us feel very safe. All personnel we ran into were very friendly and did a great job keeping the grounds looking good. We spent a few hours in the swimming pool right on the beach. You can be in the pool and still view the ocean. The pool area was well maintained. One morning, they were chopping down the coconuts and they cut a couple open and brought over to us sitting on the patio to drink the fresh juice. Then they chopped it open for us to eat the coconut. Can't beat it! We did rent a car so being 10 - 15 minutes from town did not bother us. We will be back and will plan on it every year!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed on the north end of the island last year. After spending the majority of each day in the dive boat, we decided to look for a place to stay in closer proximity to the reefs. We happened upon Residencias Reef and knew that was where we wanted to return. After some investigating, we found Patsy's listing for 5120. She responded quickly and we made our reservation. Upon our arrival, we immediately realized that her description of the property was under represented; not only does it have an amazing view, but the furnishings are are not typical for a vacation rental (much higher end) and the place was stocked with extreme attention to detail and absolutely nothing overlooked to ensure the comfort of the guests. We shared the condo with another couple and found the layout to perfect. The proximity to the beach and pool make this unit one of the best in the complex. The complex is stunningly beautiful, quiet, and safe (as is the rest of the island). We dove six days with ProDive from the Allegro, which is about 1.5 mi south of the complex. We were able to leave our gear with them, and each day we returned, the staff recognized us and immediately retrieved it -- this was VERY convenient. The staff were friendly and very professional; I highly recommend them. I also recommend Albertos's beach location; it's about 2 miles south of the condo right on the beach. The food and atmosphere are amazing. Thanks, Patsy for your hospitality. we'll definitely be returning soon.

PARADISE!!

  • 5 of 5
Our recent stay at this property exceeded all our expectations...your condo is beautifully decorated and everything is as described on the VRBO website and even more amazing in person. We were very comfortable, anything we needed was provided, and Veronica prepared several terrific meals for us. I highly recommend Veronica - as has been mentioned in other reviews, her meals are far superior to those you pay top dollar for at local restaurants. Luis handled our arrival wonderfully and always took the time to answer questions we had about the island, as well as ensure we had everything at the condo that we needed. We did a lot of snorkeling around the condo and found Playa Palapa, just down the road, to have wonderful snorkeling as well as terrific chicken fajitas. The eastern side of the island is stunning and we especially enjoyed going to Coconuts. I would recommend your condo to anyone looking for a relaxing, pampered vacation.
