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!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

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!

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.

Beautiful Condo and Property!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a wonderful week in Cozumel and really loved staying at this condo! It is a little drive from town but the Residencias Reef property is beautiful and peaceful. The condo is everything you see in the pictures and more! My personal favorite was sitting out on the balcony enjoying the amazing view of the ocean, watching the sunset and the reflection of the moon across the water at night!

The owners were easy to work with and everything about my stay was perfect! I thank them for sharing their property with others and hope to return there again someday!

Beautiful and Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

As I write this it is our last day in Cozumel. I am sitting on the porch drinking my coffee and watching the ocean. This is how we have greeted every day of our stay in this wonderful condo. We have been to Cozumel 3 times. In the past we have stayed at Secrets, the all-inclusive resort next to Residencias Reef. I am so glad we booked here. The furnishings are high quality and very comfortable as is the king bed. The kitchen is well equipped. We didn't cook while we were here but we did take advantage of the appliances, including the washer and dryer. It was great to be able to do small loads. Next year I won't feel the need to over pack. We went diving each morning and hung out by the pool or snorkeled in the afternoon. Our Dive Master picked up at the Secrets Pier. There is a sign that non-hotel guests will need to pay $2.00/day to use the pier but no one was collecting money. By evening we were grateful for the Dish TV and surround sound.

Fulvio, the property manager, made sure we knew how to reach him in the event of an issue. We did have a question about the operation of the TV. Fulvio passed our question to Michael, the owner, who called us that afternoon and helped us to resolve the issue. Olga, the maid, is very thorough and sweet! She'll make sure you have clean towels everyday and a spotless living area.

As other reviews have mentioned, you'll need a rental car. Carlos and Charlie's is next to the property but they are not open in the evenings. I've heard you can buy passes to the restaurants at Secrets, but we enjoyed the restaurants in town. A couple of nights we didn't feel like making the drive. We had plenty of leftovers for a lovely meal while watching a good movie on the TV.

I highly recommend this condo. We will definitely be back next year!

Michael and Julie's condo was perfect. A great view, lots of geckos and frogs to sing you to sleep, easy access to two pools (one with oceanview and one infinity pool), plenty of beach chairs, tables and floats without crowds, easy access to the beach complete with two loggerhead turtle nests and a dock that the scuba boat picked us up from everyday, free bottled water, and a well stocked home. We wished we had rented a car due to the distance from town and restaurants (all of the nearby places were part of all inclusives and not exciting), but the security guard called us taxi cabs and we hitched with other condo guests. It all worked out. Best of all was Michael's recommendation of Jaime for scuba diving - Jaime was AMAZING. We were so excited to meet him and to dive with him. This recommendation alone make me recommend this place over and over.
