My wife & I are retired from the Chocolate business, and I am now an author of self-help and children books known as Hippie Bob Tales. Diana & I welcome you to our Island homes...
Hippie Bob Hunter purchased this condo in 2007
The pristine waters of the Caribbean sea caresses our sandy beach where the swimming, snorkeling & diving are amazing. This is a very private, secluded and quiet area of the Island located next door to the famous Chankanaab Park.
The sounds of the ocean waves, the songs of the birds and the sights of the boats and cruise ships that go by...
What an amazing stay me and my wife had here. My wife is from Mexico but had never been to Cozumel like me. We met up with her brother and her mom who as well never been to Cozumel but are residence of Mexico! For me it was the 3rd time to Mexico and the first onto this beautiful island! The snorkeling WAS AWESOME and just feet from the condo! The people around the complex are very nice and pleasant. I would say that Hippie Bob was right, even though this is still a very small island, you should rent a car! The locals in town were very friendly and helpful with directions! I only had one request if I had to make it for this place, beds, the bed me and my wife slept on was very hard but then again we did not spend that much time in the condo. To much to see! But yes, change out the beds and the Place is perfect!
Thank you so much Hippie Bob & Diane for making this trip memorable!
The location was perfect! We couldn't stop looking at the water and remarking at how many different shades of blue we could see- even from the kitchen! Thanks for allowing us to have a wonderful family reunion with my husband's sister and her husband who live on the island. My in-laws had such a great time snorkeling and off-shore fishing!
This place is a don't miss! From the moment we arrived, Jordan provided a quick tour of the condo, explained everything and was available if needed...which he wasn't. This is the closest to the water we have ever been and the sea life directly in front of the condo rivaled what we saw out on the reef snorkeling. We also stayed in the upstairs 3 bedroom unit. The condo was spacious and cooled very quickly with ac plus fans in every room. Waking up and laying on the deck hammock was awesome. The icing on the cake was having cleaning service 3 times during our week stay and doing all the towels using the washer/dryer right in the condo. Snorkeling equipment was available in the condo even though we did bring our own. The condo has plenty of off street parking and a friendly staff constantly maintaining the grounds! We felt very safe at all times! I was initially put off before arriving at not flushing toilet paper, please don't be, it was never a problem we took it out daily and surprisingly it never smelled a bit. Paper products (TP/paper towels/and kitchen trash bags) were provided along with cleaning supplies. We had an unforgettable time and the condo was truly fabulous!
Couple things you may want to note: we rented a car for the week, two full groceries stores were within a ten minute drive. The rental car was so inexpensive and the roads very easy to negotiate. We enjoyed cooking in most days to enjoy the pool and sunsets. I would recommend purchasing disposable cups and plates as there is no dishwasher.
Thanks Bob and Diana, we can't wait to return to your slice of heaven!
Our visit was lovely and Jordi, the onsite property manager, was very responsive to our needs. He always made sure we had water and had the gas replaced when mid-way through lunch our stove wouldn't light. Hippie Bob & Diana sent us emails during our stay to check-in and make sure we were happy with the vacation rental. The cleaning staff were very friendly.
We stayed on the beach side on the second floor. It was nice to be up higher with a lovely breeze. There were a/c units in all the rooms but we found it very comfortable to instead have the windows and doors open. We travelled there in early April. The beach was well taken care of and the pool refreshing. We had a rental car and found it very easy to move around the island. Our favourite restaurant was LaCocay and 2for1 happy hour at MoneyBar.
It was a nice option for us to stay at Hippie Bob & Diana's where there are not too many units and it was far enough from the busy downtown that we were able to relax. A wonderful vacation rental that we would highly recommend.
We stayed in a three bedroom condo on the second floor, right next to the pool and with the unobstructed view to the ocean. The pool was a huge hit with our children and all of the families around the pool were super nice (a plus). The sunsets were amazing! We really were steps away from the beach and ocean.
Hippie Bob is FABULOUS about email communications. Always super nice and professional and prompt. He did everything he said he would and that couldn't have been better.
We appreciated how well built the condos are---there were no noise problems at all; the door had a nice, secure lock with a passcode (very convenient so that people could come and go without having to try to coordinate the key).
The air conditioning units all worked GREAT. We were careful to turn them off when we weren't there (of course) but when we wanted to be cooled off, it took only moments.
The kitchen had all of the tools and dishes that we needed. And we did use Hippie Bob's recommended grocery delivery---which worked OK/helpful, but wasn't perfect. (Lots of things missing from our list.)
As other reviewers have noted, I missed having a phone with free calling locally and a free internet phone---but we worked around it OK. One other slightly not perfect thing was the lack of water pressure. It took a LONG time to fill a sink to wash dishes and I never could draw a bath for my kids. No biggie---we just used showers---but if you have babies/toddlers who can only take a bath, you might want to ask Hippie Bob if there is a condo on the grounds with more water pressure. (Maybe one closer to the road/water pipes is a little better.)
The biggest downside for us was something that Hippie Bob and his wonderful team can't control which is the actual ocean access. Apparently, there was a big storm that moved a road and altered the beachfront line. As I have already noted, it made for amazing, wonderful, GORGEOUS sunsets. But it also meant that when you tried to go from beach to water, you had to traverse some challenging big rocks/broken up cement. We could barely handle it as adults and our youngest child was crashed against the rocks on the first night, so we just did all of our little kid snorkeling up the road at Chankanaab or Corona Beach. No problem, of course. Chankanaab is right next door!
It was always pretty easy to walk a few feet and get a cab whenever we needed one.
The grounds are impeccably clean and beautifully maintained. Great job, Hippie Bob!
We have been diving in Cozumel since 1996 and this is the first time that we stayed at Hippie Bob's condo. it is a wonderful condo. We chose the second floor condo right at the beach front and we could not have been happier. Our children had a blast swimming in the pool and playing on the beach. We LOVED the views----especially the sunsets. The entry to the ocean IS a little difficult----the waves crash hard and we had a few minor injuries being thrown into the rocks. The a/c works perfectly so we could keep the temperature exactly what we wanted it to be. The kitchen was well stocked---and we paid for the "groceries already there upon our arrival" and that worked well, too. The water pressure was a little low---so be sure to allow time for showers. And we could not do any baths because the plunger did not hold the water---but those were tiny inconveniences. Everyone was friendly; there were no noise problems; there were plenty of chairs by the pool and on the beach. We walked to Chankanaab and we swam to Chankanaab, so that was fun. No problem getting taxis into town---it was all and all a great stay. I would definitely recommend Hippie Bob!
