Awesome!!!!Spectacular Condo,Caribbean Decor with large local artist Murals...you will think Jimmy Buffet, Tommy Bahama, with this bold decor and large 10 foot stack back doors on two sides of the living and dinning room overlooking the private HEATED lap pool , beach area and both of the large pools.

Comfortable, upscale furniture, a state of the art kitchen, daily maid service and other amenities surround you in luxury. Here you will enjoy tropical breezes and perfect sunsets.

About Laurie Meyers

My husband and I are hard working folks from CT, who love to travel and enjoy life. When we get time to escape, we often use VRBO and Home Away to plan many of our vacations to avoid the tourist “crunch” and discover some of the best homes, condos, and villas an area has to offer. We've been lucky enough to visit many Caribbean islands, Hawaii, and Europe but time after time, we return to Mexico, specifically Cozumel. It has been our long time dream to purchase a home to retire to, where the sun is always shining, the water is always warm, and the people are always friendly.

Laurie Meyers purchased this condo in 2010

Why Laurie Meyers chose Cozumel

Having visited the eastern Mexican coast many times over the last 15 years, we always gravitate to Cozumel for the superb diving and snorkeling, the ease of island life, the excellent variety of dining spots and shopping, and the friendly people, all of which create the perfect balance of adventure and solitude. Isn’t that why we take vacations? We’ve stayed at some of the best all-inclusives on the island, and usually enjoyed them, except that you share your precious vacation time with so many other people. We prefer vacationing with our chosen guests and setting our own times for sleeping, meals, and excursions, not those of a hotel.

As soon as we were able, we set out investigating where we would like to purchase a second home to eventually retire to. After much thought, and a lot of looking, we chose Cozumel. We have always been drawn to the beauty of the island, and the residents who hold strong family values and integrity, while extending friendship to us outsiders. If you dive or snorkel, you cannot find a better place to do it, unless you travel to Australia! And if you don’t, there is still a wide variety of things to do for any age. This place leaves a lasting impression on you once you visit.

We had an awesome time in Cozumel.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice. When we got there the heated pool was not heated and the owner got it fixed in a timely manner. Four of us stayed in the condo and it was very comfortable for all of us. The gal that cleaned the condo went above and beyond. She did our laundry and I was totally not expecting her to do that. We will definitely stay in this condo again. Thanks Ed and Laurie for everything.

My Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the condo in Cozumel. The view from the patio was amazing. We enjoyed our coffee each morning outside watching boats go by and the geckos scurry across the yard.

We like to cook as well as eat out, Miguel was very helpful in giving us suggestions for awesome places to eat. The condo had everything we needed to make meals as well. I enjoyed the layout of the condo and the fun beachy theme. The condo was nice and clean upon arrival and the maid was a very sweet lady always respectful. She doesn't speak English but we got by. :-) . I'd like to have her at my house for sure. I sure loved having a washer and dryer right there. I don't like having to take my laundry places. Guess I'm lazy...

The pier is a very close walk, that's very convenient especially when you want to be picked up for a diving or snorkeling trip. We went on a trip with Miguel on the Victoria boat and had a great time. I went diving and my husband went snorkeling. I can't wait to come back and stay here again. I will make sure to schedule more time out on the Victoria too.

This is a beautiful, roomy, and relaxing condo. The resort it also very nice. Walking distance from the condo to the white sand beach. There is a private small pool on the patio, and larger community pool at the resort. Highly recommended!!!

Wonderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time in this Condo! The location was great to the pools and beach... there was an exit from the patio with a short walk that takes you to both pools and the beach. Carla the maid was wonderful and made salsa for us. The biggest disappointment was that the lap pool heater did not work and the water was too cold for us to use. As in previous reviews the lid to the washer had not been replaced, so rust did drop into the basket that stained some of the whites, but with bleach, lime and salt (not a drink!) it did come out. Ed and Laurie are very caring of your needs! Miguel took us diving four days and is an extremely knowledgeable Dive Master! Highly recommend using him! We caught Mahi-Mahi and Yellow fin tuna and took them to "Del Sur" who prepared them for us. Would recommend them highly! Great Trip! Great local people! Beware of people on scouters they drive like maniacs! Randy and Carol 5/2017

Owner's Response: Hi Randy and Carol, Thank You for your great 5 star review and we are really happy you enjoyed your vacation. Karla is wonderful and Miguel does a great job and enjoyed taking all of you diving and you cant beat fresh fish you just caught yourselves! You will be happy to know the pool heater is fixed and working fine. The washer door is on order in the states and will be brought here by friends in a little less than 2 weeks, mean while we have done a temporary fix with a little sandpaper and paint. It was great to meet you and your family and looking forward to you coming back. Safe Travels, Ed

Hmmmmm.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great unit. It is so open and airy. The wrap around open porch is fabulous. A few things in the unit are starting to be a bit tired--some of the tile in the bathroom, a partially missing hook in the bathroom, hooks missing out of the master bedroom curtain leaving it hanging down, no mattress cover, pillows on the bed need to be replaced, the sofa has seen better days and some of the marble floor tiles have some wear holes. I question if it was worth the price tag. Oh, and the key was not in the lock box that needs to be replaced so we were encouraged to not worry about locking the door. I love Residencias Reef but the unit needs some TLC.

Owner's Response: Thank You for your review, We appreciate you opinion and pointing out our condo is a great unit--open and airy, great porch, etc. and some of the little things we have done and need to do. We love our condo and it is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. We have owned the condo for going on seven years now and have completed many upgrades and consistent maintenance as time has gone. All new appliances, All new air conditioners, furniture pieces, pool heaters, hand painted murals, kitchen wear, etc. Our Key box that is built into the concrete wall did break and we could not purchase one on the Island so we had a friend bring it from the states. It since has been replaced. The bathroom hook and two broken curtain hooks in the bedroom have been replaced. We had curtains made for and replaced all of the curtains in the main part of the house 6 months ago. The curtains in the bedrooms are fine but we have new sets being made for them now to match the others. The floors are supposed to have some voids as a natural somewhat rustic quarry stone which we love. It is time for a buffing and new sealer coat (every five years) which we are doing later this spring. We do have mattress covers so I am not sure about that and we throw out and replace pillows 4 times a year-(gross not to!)-just did the spring change. Your review will make us try harder on the details as we always will and any future guests will see we have a beautiful condo in very good condition.--The on line pictures are accurate! As a side note--Laurie and I moved to this beautiful Island as full time residents 3 weeks ago in another house we have near town giving us the opportunity to be more hands on with the management of our condo. We will always be in on going improvement mode. Thank You, Ed & Laurie Meyers

Looked even better then the pics.

  • 5 of 5

Super clean with everything we needed. We went diving with Miguel one day and he pointed out so much stuff that we wouldn't have seen without him. There were air conditioners in all of the rooms and the beds were really comfortable. Sad to go.
