Cozumel Condo Rental Photos and Description
Large tropical garden, 2-level pool. 2 bd 2 ba or rent as a 1 bd 1 ba and save
Relax by the two-level pool and listen to the gentle sound of water cascading from the small rock fountain into the top level of the pool. Stretch out in a cushioned lounge chair or enjoy a siesta in one of the double size hammocks under the large palapa roofed patio. The garden includes banana trees, palms, a lime tree, hibiscus, bougainvilleas along with other tropical flowers and plants. There is a gas grill outside with a food preparation area and sink, an outdoor shower and off street parking should you decide to rent a car. The pool and garden take up more than half of this double sized lot so there is plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors–very unusual to find in this popular residential area. And the location is wonderful. You are less than 500 yards from the oceanfront street, a 3 minute walk to a large grocery store, there are a number of restaurants nearby, 3/4 mile south is a public beach and the main square downtown is 3/4 mile north. Casa Tomas offers luxury and loads of amenities as a 2 bedroom 2 bath for up to 4 guests, or it can be rented as a 1 bedroom 1 bath for up to 2 guests at savings of $200/wk.
Inside Casa Tomas enjoy the comfort of air conditioning throughout, a very comfortable sofa with throw pillows, wired and wireless internet service, a flat panel Sony TV with cable service, DVD player and movies, a library of paperback books, CD player, a fully equipped kitchen, 2 safes for valuables (one large enough for most 14' laptops), comfortable king beds with foam toppers, a local phone, washer and dryer, maid service, a second phone for free calls to the U.S. and Canada and even an iPod/iPhone player/charger. If you have an iPhone 5, just ask and we can provide an adapter for the new iPhone 5.
Both bedrooms have a private bath, and one of the king beds can be changed to 2 twin beds by request. There is a second sofa in the living area that is a day bed with a trundle.
The kitchen is well equipped with a coffee maker, blender, microwave, toaster oven, full size stove and oven, refrigerator that has a top freezer with lots of ice trays and frosty beer mugs.

About Kathy Lasater or David Shipman
Most of my life I lived in Texas (Houston, Austin, Dallas and Tyler). My first trip to Cozumel was in 1976, but after years of vacationing on Cozumel I realized I'd found my paradise. In May 2000 I moved to Cozumel in a home only a few blocks from the vacation rental we built in 1999. How wonderful to live on Cozumel with sandy beaches, scuba diving, snorkeling and all around the island are the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean. Cozumel is the safest place I have ever lived, the people are warm and friendly and the weather is fantastic.

Why Kathy Lasater or David Shipman chose Cozumel
After vacationing on Cozumel for many years, the area I thought would be perfect for a vacation home was finally for sale. We bought it, and then built and equipped our vacation home with everything we wanted. Our family and guests now enjoy the great location and all the amenities. You can travel here with just a carry on as there is a washer and dryer for personal laundry. Internet service is wireless and wired, there is a phone for local calls and a second phone for free calls to the U.S. and Canada. Most of all, since our guests spend a great deal of time outside, the large outdoor area and pool are fantastic. There have been times when we had trouble getting my grandson out of the pool so we could all go to the beach!
What makes this condo unique
It's rare to find a vacation rental in this popular area of Cozumel with a large garden and outdoor area. Built on a double lot, a privacy wall surrounds the grounds that include a two-level swimming pool and off street parking for up to 2 vehicles. The big shade tree in the garden is a favorite of mine. The inside is comfortable and loaded with amenities, but the garden, pool and outdoor area is my favorite. Oh...but we really do love having a washer and dryer so we don't have to pack lots of clothes!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Our whole experience from getting off the plane to getting to the Villa was perfect. All the instructions and maps helped us very much. The grounds of the Villa were beautiful with the pools, hammocks and lounge chairs. Inside the Villa was beautiful as well. There was everything we needed and then some. We were greeted with a gift basket of fruit, munchies, and beer and soda in the refrigerator. We got the low down on the neighborhood from Catherine. Catherine came to the Villa on our first day to give us all the info we needed and some tips on the best local restaurants etc...She gave us all of her contact phone numbers if we needed anything. The maid service was also top notch. She came everyday and she did an exceptional job. The villa was close to everything, stores, restaurants, churches, parks, bars and grocery stores. We usually walked everywhere or took a taxi if it was over five miles. We did not find a need to rent a car or motor bike. Everything about this trip to Cozumel was spectacular. This Villa is in a safe neighborhood. We never felt uneasy, we always felt safe, even walking home at night from dinner or music in the park. There might be bars on the windows, gates and triple locks, but I guess that's just how it is in Cozumel. There was this eatery/restaurant up the block that was in this women's living room. She did not speak english so she brought us in the kitchen to show us what was for lunch, and we pointed at what we wanted. I guess we need to brush up on our Spanish, she made the best food in town. We will be coming back very soon. We met a lot of really nice people and can't wait to come back again to visit or maybe even stay longer than seven days. Exceptional Villa, Exceptional Service in every way. Lasting memories for a life time. Thank you Kathy for making this trip happen on such short notice.
Thank you, Laurie & Chris
