Overview

Cozumel Condo Rental Photos and Description

Paradise awaits you in this 2,780 sq. ft. wonderful and luxurious two stories penthouse with mesmerizing Caribbean sights. This is the place to really relax and forget about it all. “It is huge, and look at the incredible view!” are the two main comments we immediately get from our guests.

The photos speak for themselves, by far the largest condo in the beautiful and exclusive Cantamar building (more than twice the size of the other ones), a two stories penthouse with the greatest view in the building & island; this relaxing seaside property will embezzle you from the first moment. It has a big living and dinning room as well as a large kitchen, upstairs you will find a huge main room with a large balcony with an awesome view of the Caribbean sea and private bathroom. Another room next to it also with ocean view and another room with jungle view, both these rooms sharing a 2 shower full bathroom.

Towels are provided in the condo (3 for the beach). We are located in the second floor, no elevator, but there will be someone to carry your luggage when you arrive.

Calling to the States is free and we have wireless internet and dish cable TV . Our in island agent is available to answer every question about the island.

If you are a large family or a group that wants to have independency inside the condo this property is ideal for you, Cantamar is an exclusive building with just eight condos located in the quiet North side of the island, a mere 15 minute walk from the town of San Miguel, unlike the south side properties that are far away from town -meaning expensive taxi trips- and crowded by cruise ship tourists and their taxis. Also south side condos are mainly located at public beaches, so forget about getting the privacy you take for granted at Cantamar.

The presidential house is located 800 feet from us, and there are many good reasons for it: we have the best sea colors, sights, and snorkeling right out of the condo. Our man made beach has plenty of beach beds as well as two palapas and a wood pergola, our pool has an incredible aerial effect, and there is plenty of beach beds next to it. There is a ladder to access the sea and our Oceanside is known for having the clearest shoreline water in Cozumel, so relax & enjoy!

You want to relax, have a romantic getaway and be at ease with your children? This is the place to do it! There is a Jack Nicklaus less than two miles away, and you can go south to a public beach for wave runners, parasailing, and more. You are an Ironman fan? There is a cycling & jogging course just outside our condo! And swimming training in the sea is incredible.

We have central air both in the lower and upper levels, and also ceiling fans in case you want to avoid the cold air conditioning breeze before an early dive.

Scuba diving & snorkeling in Cozumel is breathtaking, having been a dive master myself I constantly got appraisals from divers all over the world about it, the deep, night, current, reef diving are unparalleled, including the world renowned Cenote dive, found only in the Yucatan peninsula. The condo is equipped with a diving gear rising tank & shower, and you can be picked up for a diving excursion on our private pier.

You also have a large selection of restaurants with delicious local and international food, you may go into town to discover them or just relax in your condo. There is also a very large shopping selection in town, both local & international.

However if you are looking for a party condo for Spring Break, please do not bother to call. We are a quiet, relaxing location and wish to stay so to the benefit of our guests.

About cristina artigas

We are a Mexican family that has enjoyed Cozumel since the 1940´s and we consider the island our second home, we are originally from Mexico City and we are related both to the cultural sector in Mexico as public cultural trust fund manager, and to the water treatment sector designing plants & supplying equipment for it. We try to spend as much time as possible in Cozumel and see to it that our condo feels like a home and not like a cold, unpersonal hotel room.

cristina artigas purchased this condo in 1990

Why cristina artigas chose Cozumel

We really think we managed to find an exceptional place in an exceptional island and we feel great knowing our guest enjoy themselves in it. We were the first to purchase so we had the chance to choose the best condo available, both the large spaces & incredible views have made a big diference for us. Cozumel is the place to fall in love with.

What makes this condo unique

This is an easy one: our condo is by far the largest in a great building, the rest of the condos are less than half our size; you have the living & dinning & kitchen areas on the first floor and the bedrooms in the upper floor, so if you want to have a nice dinner (in a superb glass, 10 chair dinning table) with the kids sleeping upstairs, not in the next room, be welcomed to do so. Also our great balconies in both floors will let you admire the unique sunsets or have a Caribbean view outdoor meal. Our large living room will allow you to sit and relax with your friends. The beach and pool are private (not many of these in Mexico since beaches are considered federal property), and we have direct access to the sea and our private pier to be picked up by boats.

Great stay! A must do!

  • 5 of 5
I decided to go last minute to Cozumel as I had some days off that I had to take before I forfeit them. As it was available, I manage to get a special rate for it. Also, as it is near the town and I didn't want to rent a car, I decided to take this one, and I have to say this was the best decision I could've taken!

The booking/payment process was nice and easy as it is via PayPal. The owner speaks French which was very helpful and a nice sell as I'm a French speaker.
I was welcomed by the island manager, a lady that is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She was always on top of things and available for any questions/help.
The owner had recently done some minor upgrades to the place. You can notice by the new appliances (TV, oven, washrooms, etc) and the closets/washrooms. Internet works fine for me and there is Netflix on site.
The stay included a cleaning lady 2 times, so she kept it quite neat.
The place is huge, 10 people could stay and it still does not feel cramped.
The view is amazing, one of the best you could have. There is a hammock on the second floor balcony where it is nice to sit and see the sunset.
The building is clean and updated. It has a pool, beach and security gate.
As other reviews mentioned, snorkeling is -by far- on of the best you could get around.
I hired a local cook -which was recommended by the island manager- and he cooked for us delicious local food. I would definitely recommend to do this. Also, for $50 bucks for two, you pay less than the average meal in the island and better quality.
The place is located 10-15 min -walking- from downtown, which was also nice so we could avoid taking a cab. Still, cabs charge $4 for a ride anywhere downtown, so we took one to go to the supermarket and another one back.

Thank you Juan for all your help and for the amazing stay, See you in 2015 :)

Condo Rental

  • 1 of 5
The property is in need of upgrade.
Briefly:
The bathroom toilet seats do not fit and collapse into the rim.
There is no storm window in the hall, therefore the sun heats up the entire upstairs.
There is no dryer (a dryer was indicated on the property description).
The safe is broken in the master bedroom.
The Television is vintage rear projecting tube. 99% of the stations are Spanish. The DVD player was dysfunctional.
Pots and pans are cheap and or have broken handles.
The linen in the master bedroom is threadbare.
The location of the condo is beautiful.
We visited other units in the building that are much nicer. They only have two bedrooms. Fast WiFi, flatscreen televisions, upgraded kitchen and bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I would like to make some precisions about it:

We are surprised about the comments as he did not have any complaints at all during the month-stay. The staff even helped him with his snorkel trips and his travel around the region. Our staff was constantly checking by to see if anything was needed, however, the renter always mentioned there was no issues at all. When I talked with him after he left, he did not mentioned anything at all about all this, he just stated that he had a wonderful time traveling around.

The renter left the apartment in a very dirty state. Although he had a special rate that would not include cleaning service, he never requested it at all. The pictures where he shows the state of the shower were taken at the end of his stay. We do have a cleaning person that leaves the place clean, as this is very important because it is a place for rent and we do care about having it clean.

Even though I agree the TV is old (and we are upgrading it too), the internet and phones were correct. We clearly mention that we offer Mexican SAT TV, so this was no surprise at all to him. We are not sure what he was expecting. We haven't had any complain at all from any other guests about this as you can see in pasts reviews. For using the phone, there is no science about it and we clearly explain how to use it, you dial 001+the US number for calls home and for local mobile numbers is based on what the Mexican FCC has set up in place nationally -meaning this is the standard. It is not up to me to decide how to dial to the US.

We are currently undergoing some pre-holiday season upgrading, as we know we have some minor issues, however, past reviews prove that we do have excellent customer service and respond to any of our guests needs. We welcome any feedback as we thrive to give a great experience but we believe this is a very unfair review from a very difficult tenant, as he left a hefty electricity bill, all the place was messy when he left and he still got his deposit back -even though he knew that it was part of the agreement that he should've paid some of these things it as he had a special rate. To end it, he mistreated the staff on his exit.

Deferred Maintenance

  • 2 of 5
This property is a good value and well located but overall was disappointing.

The property shows little pride of ownership and has a lot of deferred maintenance.
Examples : Worn out furniture including the living room couches, porch hammock and living room chairs. The sliding glass doors and rea window seal poorly although the owner requests renters to conserve electricity by not overusing the air conditioning. Theupstairs air conditioner worked only sporadically . The kitchen supplies are the bare minimum required for VRBO rentals

The property is well located in a small condo complex on the quiet, northern side of town.
The condo complex itself is well maintained but the unit needs a substantial investment to live up to its potential. We likes the penthouse location but some elderly guests may have problems with the two flights of stairs.

We enjoyed Cozumel but this was one of the few exceptions to our generally good experiences with VRBO rentals.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feedback. We always look to improve our services and this is very helpful.

I would like to clarify some points about this review:

- We request our renters to be mindful about electricty charges for two reasons. The first one is because we have had past experiences where some renters have left the condo for the day and they leave the A/C on for the day so the condo can stay cool when they come back, which only causes electricity waste. The second one is because the electricity rates in the island have been rising 50% per year (average), and still we keep the same rates from 2012 while other condos have increased their rates to reflect this hike. We are constantly asked to give special rates or a competitive price for vacaction seekers, but in order to do this we need the help from the renters to be able to.

- The kitchen supplies are something that we constantly renew as we have had guests taking supplies to the beach or breaking them, without replacing/returning them.

- The furniture has manteinance every year, you have to be mindful that because this is a sea side property, the salt does cause some effect that makes it look quickly deteriorated.

Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to be able to host you again soon!

Cantamar Condo

  • 4 of 5
Great place to stay, conveniently located to downtown, pretty view, right on the water, excellent snorkeling, nice facility The condo is large, lots of room for my wife and I plus our 3 teenage kids. The kids loved the fast internet connection. The agent, Eduardo was very helpful in giving us ideas for places to eat and things to do. Marcello the maintenance guy was always around if you need help. We got picked up for diving right next door which was very convenient. The kitchen worked out perfect for eating some meals at home. Some updating of the bathrooms and master air are in-order but for the price it's hard to complain. If half stars were allowed, we would have given it 4.5, overall we had a great time. Thanks for theuse of your condo.

2014 Stay

  • 5 of 5
Second stay at Cantamar and second review for this condo. It really is a fantastic place to stay. A couple of things we did different in 2014; Eduardo hooked us up with a cook named Yobanni (sp?) who came in twice and cooked us authentic Mayan Cuisine. By the time we paid for the food and paid Yobanni, it worked out to be around $8 per person. Pretty good deal if you ask me. We probably could've done it cheaper because we had tons of leftovers. Make sure you try his haberno salsa, it hurts but only a little.

The other thing is; when I jogged there last year, for some reason I only went south. This year I went north and was pleasantly surprised by how nice the run paths are and how little traffic there is at that end. Just another reason to love the location of Cantamar.

Eduardo also had the refrigerator stocked with deli meats, bread, condiments and cerveza which we reimbursed him for upon our arrival. Let me tell you how convenient that was after leaving Washington DC at 0545 and arriving in Cozumel at noon. To get to the condo and have food already there made for a great first day as we could relax without having to make a beer run or grocery run.

Oh and dont let me forget Marcello, the maintenance guy. He keeps the grounds around the condo spotless and is helpful should you require more water, hauling luggage or just about anything else.
