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 Quintana Roo

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.

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.

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

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.

great vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks in feb. Loved every minute and hated leaving. After two weeks we often feel "I'm ready to go home", not the case here, could easily have stayed two more. My 70-something sister and bro-in-law stayed with us the first week and it was hard to get her out of the heated pool to show her the island. Once we did, she loved Cozumel, especially the wild side, Coconuts, Bob Marley's, and Mezcalitos and great beaches. Condo was well stocked, and everything worked fine. We did some cooking (mostly breakfast), but the restaurants in town were too much fun and affordable to resist going out nights. Town is great once the cruise ships move along and things settle down. The diving here is the best I have done anywhere I've been in the Caribbean. I didn't dive with Miquel because I have been diving with Jeremy of Living Underwater for years, but I did get to speak to Miquel when he checked in on us and he seemed very knowledgeable, and friendly. I would not hesitate to go diving with him. Also, the maid did a great job. She doesn't speak much English, and I'm ashamed to say after 35 yrs. of going to Mexico I speak very little Spanish, so communication was tough, but we got by. To sum up, there are a few little things that need some attention, and the entry at the beach could be a little better (rocky) but this condo is beautiful and this is a great place to have a wonderful vacation.

Enjoyed are stay, but could have been better!

  • 2 of 5

10 nights in January. The location of the property is great and the beach and pools were all great. The condo itself is nice enough, but there are things in need of updating and better cleaning. We had issues with a group on the top floor that were acting as if it was Cancun spring break, highly intox/maybe drugs, screaming/yelling at guests and wanting everyone there to know they were there. The security had their hands full with them and did get them to quiet down after 3 days of impacting others vacations. The washer/dryer is in desperate need of replacing and is so old the rust is flaking off the lid into the basin. We do a lot of cooking while on the vacation and I did not find the pots/pans to be adequate or in good condition. The bed in the spare room is a rock and is in need of replacing. The bed in the master I would describe as okay. We have stayed in many condos and homes in Mexico, some good, some great, and some bad. This one could be a good one with better management. Miquel is a nice enough man, but my impression is that if you are not diving with their company or spending your money on his other ventures then you are not likely to get good service. Our biggest disappointment is we felt we were paying extra for a heated private pool. It was dirty when we arrived and the heat was gone after the first day. Miquel told us twice that he was there to fix it and clean it. He never did either one. Another repair man came a couple days later, but still did not fix the heat and it was never cleaned. Very disappointing as it was only useful for one day. No communication on this from the owner whatsoever and was never asked by them if we even enjoyed our stay. No offer of a percentage refund for the pool not working or the maid not showing up one day leaving us with no maid service for a day we were supposed to have it. We did go diving with Miquel for one day as we had an opening to fill and our dive operator could not get us out that day. Use Scuba Tony, you can't go wrong. Miquel said we would have a small group and there were 12 on the boat with only him in the water leading the group. One of the crew put my son's weights in another diver's bcd and then didn't put any weight in my son's bcd. If you are diver, you understand how dangerous this can be. My son made his dive with no weight and my son's weights fell out of the other divers bcd as they did not fit right. I was not impressed and it seems the money is the priority.

Owner's Response: Hello future Guests, I am happy Mike and his group enjoyed their stay but not happy there overall experience was not up to their expectations. We take comments seriously and take the stance "we can do better". Please read our other reviews--we are proud of them! People staying above Mike who were loud and did not respect them or the people around them must have been frustrating. Equally as frustrating is our pool broke down on their second day and it took 6 days to make the repair. We had to wait for parts (shipped express) and the pool had to be drained to complete the repair of plumbing and a new heater. Miguel spoke them daily and tried 3 times to "jury rig" a temporary fix..did not work. If you book with us you will find in the last 1 to 2 years we have replaced all 3 air conditioning units, refrigerator, microwave, flat screen TV, up graded Wi fi, curtains, linens, pool heater and plumbing, hot water heater, patio garden, the entire interior painted (6 months ago), a new hand painted mural (one of 3), wall hangings, etc., etc--as any home it does not end. Next up--new washer/dryer and are having our teak patio furniture re finished one piece at a time. All guests are treated with respect and great customer service regardless of whether they dive, fish, bike, etc with Miguel. That is separate and although we are happy to have you partake in these activities they are a convenience for our guests--we do not push them on anyone are happy to tend to all needs and wants. It has never been and will never be all about the money for us. It is about a better way of life and we enjoy sharing our little bit of Cozumel with our guests and have made many friends. Diving with Miguel-- He has a been a dive master in Cozumel for 26 years and has a great custom 35' dive/fishing boat (the Victoria) . I have been diving with him many times and have gotten tons of positive feed back from people who dive with him. The Victoria takes groups of divers booking individually and is also available for private dives and was booked private the day Mike and his son wanted to dive. Miguel offered to take them diving on his cousin's 40' boat. There were 12 divers on the boat but Miguel was the dive Master for just the two of them and there were two other Dive Masters aboard for the other people. The weights--no one including the Captain remembered that. If you get in the water without your weight belt you can not submerge so....not sure. Thank You, Ed & Laurie Meyers
