About The Owner

Welcome to our Casa in Paradise! We (Michael & Julie) bought our condo when it was dirt and just a plan to be built back in 04-05 it was completed in 2007. We have in our opinion the nicest property on the entire island with sandy beach at our door and for miles to the South of us, we continue to go the extra mile to keep our place updated with new furniture, etc. to keep it fresh and new for ourselves and guests!

Unlike the property's in town and to the North, San Francisco beach is sand for miles, and we are literally a 5 minute boat ride to all the best dive sites to the South. The private, gated property at Residencias Reef is by far the nicest on the entire island and is up kept by a wonderful staff, we are confident you will agree.

We like spending as much time as possible in our place (we live in the mountains in the ski town of Mammoth Lakes, CA) and have decorated it for our guest to feel right at home. We hope to have you as a guest in our Casa and share the love for Cozumel!

Just returned from Cozumel, after staying numerous times in all inclusive' s, this was our first stay in a condo, let me just say, we will NEVER go back to an all inclusive again! This condo was perfect, immaculate, had everything we needed, great staff and the entire complex was beautiful. I would highly recommend this condo and the owners were great to deal with. Can't wait to return!

Perfect condo for two

  • 5 of 5

Unit 8220 at Residencias Reef was perfect for the two of us for the ten days we rented. The view from the second floor deck, while a bit back from the water in building #4, was wonderful and we ate outside every night. The living room was comfortable and the TV directions which were handy on the coffee table would have made TV watching easy had the Dish network throughout the resort been working better. Also, Michael is attending to Netflix connection issues we had. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots and pans, so much so that there was not much space for our food. We suggested a free standing cabinet to supplement the cupboard space. The mattress was very comfortable, the bathrooms clean and the shower had plenty of hot water.

Olga came every day but Sunday and kept the condo spotless and smelling fresh. She even washed our dishes because she said she didn't like the way the dishwasher cleaned them.

The resort itself is well maintained, the two pools great for cooling off and the grounds with resident iguanas well groomed. We recommend water shoes for getting into the ocean however, as the access is coral with no sandy entrance. The dock was convenient for those diving or taking boat excursions which we did not take advantage of.

All in all it was a wonderful, relaxing ten days and we would love to return.

Lovely beachfront condo complex

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at Residencias Reef in Cozumel. The condo was beautiful. Everything we needed was provided--cooking utensils, washer/dryer, beach towels, pool toys, snorkel gear. The only problem I had was trying to figure out the machine instructions on the washer/dryer and on the oven. They are in Spanish. I finally had to give up on using the oven because I didn't know how high I was setting it. We did have some trouble with the television, too. It is very nice that it has DISH satellite just like we do at home, but for some reason we had to change the channels from the satellite box rather than with the remote (wasn't a battery problem).

The outdoor balcony was wonderful as we sat out there to have morning coffee and then watch the beautiful sunsets in the evening. There is a grill, but we didn't use it or the balcony hot tub.

The town is probably 10-12 miles away so it is not walkable. One can rent a car, but we were glad that we didn't since the traffic in the town is somewhat heavy and that just makes us nervous. We got a cab at the airport (you walk straight out of the airport front doors and go to the street that you can see about a block ahead across the grassy space. There are cabs that circle by.) We then had our cabbie stop at the grocery store to pick up things. If you want to go back to town from the complex, just walk to the front driveway and if you don't flag a cab down, the front attendants will call for one. We made a mistake of paying in U.S. dollars (about $15)--if one pays in pesos it is only about $8 with the exchange in Feb. 2017. It's wise to check on that.

We went to town twice to eat out. Tried Palmero's that is right on the waterfront in the center of town. The atmosphere was good, but the food just fine. Our last night we went to Kinta and the food was terrific and service very good.

There are some bars just south of the complex on the beach that are owned by cruise lines. People come off the boats to these bars during the day, but then they close at 5:00. It is fun to go down and grab a beer and a sandwich at these places. We didn't find the beef to be very good in the hamburgers though. Might want to stick with salads or Mexican food.

The complex has two pools that were nice to sit around with plenty of chairs. There are plenty of beachside chairs and a few palapas to shade.

We enjoyed our time at the condo very much. Closer dining would have made it better.

Exactly what we expected

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Cozumel, and we felt so welcomed upon opening the door to Michael & Julie's condo. The sofa/sleeper was a very comfortable sofa, but the sleeper for the 3rd person felt too many springs (which happens with sofa/sleepers after a short time). Fulvio was attentive and Olga kept the place super-clean. They are now aware of the uncomfortable sleeper, and as attentive as they are, will have it more comfortable soon. We rented a car and ventured the island a lot! It was hard to leave.
