About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) Great Pool

Have you ever been to Paradise? The paradise of Cozumel Island and it is all within walking distance of the main ferry dock. This condominium property is located 1 block east of the oceanfront and 5 blocks north of the main square of San Miguel, Cozumel's main city. It is located one block north of the 5th Avenue pedestrian mall where all the city's greatest restaurants are, the nicest shops for clothing, jewelry and Mexican artifacts, and many of the dive and snorkel operations. While some people prefer to be on the main square of town, or on the waterfront, once you experience the quiet and serenity being located just blocks off, you'll realize that being able to walk to the action is better than trying to be able to sleep through the noise of the revelers. Also if you have ever experienced the Caribbean in a storm, you'll also appreciate the safety and relative calm by being off the water in a newly built 4 story concrete building with hurricane shutters!

Within a short stroll there are numerous restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner and even a supermarket just blocks away.

There is not just a single season to enjoy Cozumel as the weather is delightful all year long. The ocean is crystal blue and abounds with vigorous sea life and is usually between 76 degrees and 82 degrees Fahrenheit. The Mexican people on this small island community are really happy to have visitors staying on their island and many are bilingual. The streets are uncommonly safe, night and day, for all ages, men and women and teenagers. It is so nice to walk among the residents of the island who often take to the streets at night as well, to enjoy the cool evening breezes. See this island from the perspective of a resident by staying in the city and enjoy walking to all your favorite destinations. Both private boat marinas and all of the best beaches are easily accessed by public taxis 24/7 and then you don't worry about directions! If you decide to rent a car for the vacation, there is an off street security parking area too. This is paradise on an affordable budget! Unlike some other Mexican destinations, Cozumel is not experiencing drug cartel violence. It's very safe here. Enjoy.

If you decide to come and stay with me, I have many local tips and recommendations to email you for your enjoyment. I have loved Cozumel for over 20 years and I can help before and during your stay for whatever questions you might have. My goal is for you to love being on the island as much as I love being there.

It is a very special place.

About Cynthia Darling

I am a scuba diver and Cozumel is my favorite location! The reefs are vibrant, fish life abundant and the water is always refreshing and fascinating. Above sea level, I also love being on Cozumel. The Mexican people are so warm and inviting and cordially allowing visitors and guests to share in the pride of their homeland. While staying on Cozumel, I have enjoyed taking Spanish classes locally, cooking classes and painting seminars. There is a gym on the island that is clean and modern with yoga and pilates available and a great staff of trainers. There are local tennis courts, a very challenging golf course and more beaches than you can go to in a week. And naturally, one of the favorite haunts for me is the pool area at the condo. Even after a day at the beaches or scuba diving, the comfort and community of the pool is a great way to wind down. Sometimes, a swim after dinner is the perfect night cap! Literally, there is something for everyone on the island.

Cynthia Darling purchased this condo in 2007

Why Cynthia Darling chose Cozumel

I like being able to walk around town. The condo is located only 5 blocks north of the main square and the street scene is such a lively part of the Mexican experience with kids playing in the streets and lovers on the park benches and parents not far away supervising all activities. Being one block off the ocean also allows for quiet and serenity while the town celebrates or the ocean stirs up. Cozumel has none of the problems associated with the drug cartel violence because it is an island. Criminal elements like to be able to leave the scene of the crime more quickly than the ferry schedule allows!

What makes this condo unique

Even though I highly recommend the local restaurants, I love having my own kitchen for the flexibility of breakfast and lunch. This kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for a fancy dinner for 8 or just appetizers to serve friends, except of course for the food.

This condo was exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

This 3br 2ba condo in a gated complex with a pool 2 blocks from the ocean and 6 blocks from the city center was exactly what we needed. after two other vacations where we spent extra money to be on the beach realize that the beaches in front of condos don't necessarily provide a great place to swim or snorkel at. This time we plan to spend our days at various beach clubs. We saved a ton of money by staying here as opposed to a place on the beach. Felt very safe. This three bedroom two bath condo is well stocked with everything you would need. Furniture is modern and comfortable. There are extras like cooking oil and dish soap etc. grocery store two blocks away. Owner is responsive and likes to help people find their favorite Cozumel spots. air-conditioning worked perfectly and we were within walking distance to multiple great restaurants. The pool is not heated but this did not bother us. There is a school nearby so you can hear a little bit of noise from the children at recess but over all the kids are pretty cute. We hope to stay here again next year!

Great location! Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect! We stayed for a week to participate in the world triathlon with our 2 daughters of ages 2 and 4 and a set of grandparents. They loved the park and the pool! The apartment was perfectly located so that we could walk to great restaurants and the ferry. The place was clean and had everything we needed. Great advantages were the water cooler, the property manager and the location. We felt the beds were a little on the stiff side but after one night adjusted. Also the kitchen could use a collander for pasta. Other than those two things we loved it and would definitely return!!

Great property. Sleeps 6 well. A/C had a little trouble keeping up in August in middle of the day, but we were gone most days so it didn't matter.

What a great experience! We had gone to Cozumel to get work done on condo we own. Soon it became obvious we couldn't stay in our condo and needed a place to stay quick that was close. We contacted property owner and were able to stay in this condo. It was really great! Spacious, clean and so well located with all amenities, plenty of beach towels, internet, &American TV, ! It even have olive oil, tea and spices! How very nice and how comfortable we were! Quiet, tropical with great original art. Pool was lovely. Ground immaculately well maintained! Whew!! We landed well and I'd stay here again in a heart beat!

What can we really say, the condo was awesome! We loved the location, so close to downtown and so many great restaurants close by. The grounds, the pool, the neighbours, the condo itself was just like home, so well equipped, great layout. We could not have asked for more. Thank you Cindy for making our vacation extra special with your referral to Dive with Cristina as that was the highlight for the guys. We have stayed in many condos in many countries and this one is our all time favourite.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious property, the furniture is very maintained and the condo was clean. The owner is very curtious and quickly to respond to emails. Her info inregards to where to go for shopping and local food is very helpful. My only complaints would be that the upstairs neighbors can be loud when you are trying to sleep, the beds are very firm/hard and I prefer a softer mattress, and lastly the refrigerator is old and appears to look dirty from the outside ( but that could be rust but I'm funny about things like that). Overall it was a great experience and I would rent the space again!
