RENT AS A 1 OR 2 BD. POOL, TROPICAL GARDEN, PATIOS, HAMMOCKS, A/C, INTERNET, W/D

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. There is a wide assortment of pots and pans, cooking utensils, corkscrews, etc. plus plenty of dishes, glasses and flatware.

Casa Tomas can be rented as either a 1 bedroom 1 bath for up to 2 guests or as a 2 bedroom 2 bath for up to 4 or even 5 guests. The large outdoor area and garden may be shared if there are guests in the 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment downstairs, or you might have it all for your own private use.

As our family's vacation home, and we have furnished it as a comfortable home-away-from-home for our family and friends. We accept reservations from guests who are 25 and over, and will accept reservations that include children between 6 and 25 that are accompanied by parents or guardians.

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

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.

Kathy Lasater or David Shipman purchased this condo in 1999

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!

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!

Fantastic stay for Ironman Cozumel!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, another couple, and I just left, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. David made sure the reservation process was easy, and Catherine (with her husband's help) made sure that all of our needs were met.

We stayed in the apartment for approximately one week to do Ironman Cozumel. The location was perfect. It was a short walk into town and a short hobble back from the finish line. The apartment has everything you need and is very close to two supermarkets. Catherine and her crew even put some snacks and drinks in it for us due to our late arrival time. The pool was great for post-race relaxation, and the furniture was very comfortable. The housekeeper was very nice and always tried to wait for us to clear out before cleaning up. She was very accomodating the day after the race, as we weren't moving very fast. The only negative we had is that the pictures on the site do not do the actual apartment and garden justice. We also had the opportunity to meet the owner who was fantastic.

We highly recommend this place for anyone doing the race next year. There is plenty of space for gear (we had three bikes), a dive gear rinse area which we used to wash our helmets, shoes, etc., and a laundry machine to clean our nasty smelling race clothes. The kitchen is well-equipped for any pre-race dishes, and the fridge is a standard US one for post-race beverages.

Thanks to Kathy, Gayle, Catherine, and Cheto for coming out to cheer us on and for making our stay memorable.

Owner's Response: You were delightful guests. We all enjoyed meeting you and are proud that you stayed at Casa Tomas. We were pleased that you thought the apartment and garden are even better in person than the photos online. Thank you, and congratulations to you all for your success in Ironman Cozumel 2013.

Casa Tomas

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Casa. It was a great location-easily walkable to shopping,restaurants and downtown waterfront.

Kathy and her crew were friendly and helpful. There were even some options for entertainment in the Casa when we were in because of rain.

The pool is small but more than sufficient for a dip or to cool off.All in all a very good experience.

Thanks Kathy and crew!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Casa Tomas for us. Comments from those who have stayed at Casa Tomas will aid others considering a vacation rental. We hope guests enjoy the outdoors with a dip in the pool, sunning in a lounge chair or possibly breakfast in the garden, but should it happens to rain there is internet, a TV with cable service, loads of DVD movies plus paperback books and CDs. Our goal is guests who have enjoyed their stay, and we are glad you did.

Truly a tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at this property several times. With a small group, we have rented either upstairs or downstairs. With larger groups, the entire villa is available with your own private pool, outdoor grill, lounge chairs, hammocks and palapa. The backyard is amazing.......beautiful flowers and trees, the sound of the waterfall, shaded palapa with a ceiling fan. Sitting out early in the morning with a cup of coffee to watch the birds and sometimes an iguana is a vacation in itself. The house is kept spotlessly clean and if you have the occasion problem, the staff is very prompt in taking care of you.

You are welcomed with beer and soft drinks in the refrigerator and a few snacks on the counter. The Chedraui grocery is 1.5 blocks away and a perfect place to pick up groceries, drinks or anything you might have forgotten to pack. There is a large gated area for parking your vehicle at night which is very nice. The rooms and yard are exactly as pictured!

The reservation process is very easy and all questions are answered. The owner goes out of the way to accomodate you and make you feel at home.

The home is inviting and feels very safe. The area is a great neighborhood and walking to nearby restaurants or shops is not a problem.

I've stayed here several times during different times of the year and always enjoy this rental. I would recommend this rental for a getaway to paradise!!

Owner's Response: It's always a joy to have you stay with us. We love it when guests return to our vacation villa each time they come to Cozumel. You've been a regular guest with us for a number of years and I believe you hold the record in 2011, having stayed with us 4 times. We really appreciate you, your family and friends. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
