About Carla Hanson

Craig and I live between three homes. Olympia, Washington, Daytona Beach Shores, Florida and Cozumel. Craig is an attorney who practices law in the State of Washington, but thanks to technology, he is able to work from Cozumel and Florida as well.

Carla Hanson purchased this house in 1999

Why Carla Hanson chose Colonia Andres

After diving all over the Caribbean, we found that we enjoyed Cozumel as much above the water as we did below the water. The diving was great and the people in Cozumel were even greater. We felt very much at home on our first visit to Cozumel and within two years we had completed our home away from home.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location. Casa Carlita is close to everything that Cozumel has to offer, but the home is very quiet and private. We are only a 2 minutie walk to a major grocery store, a ten minute walk to some fun restuarants and a 5 minute walk to the pier near Margaritaville to catch your dive boat. Guests appreciate our excellent maid service and the loads of amenities provided including wireless internet, free long distance to US and Canada, DVD player with over 200 movies, books, etc to choose from. Our courtyard is surrounded by a high wall for complete privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner


The visit to your home was once again AWESOME. I feel so at home in your house. I love what you have done to the place. I especially love the outdoor shower. I actually used it most of the trip. My sister was with me this time and she is hooked, just as I am. Thank you sooooooo much for letting us stay at your home. Guadalupe is the sweetest person and Victor was most helpful. I wanted to bring them both back home with me.

I am seriously considering retiring to Cozumel. I love it down there. I want a house just like yours. Wanna sell?

Cozumel is such a quaint island and everyone is really nice. Needless to say I love it down there.

Thanks again Carla, you are an angel for having a "Great Escape".

Casa Carlita could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

I did extensive research on where to say in Cozumel. I'm extremely picky and since I'm a mom I needed to make sure the area would be ideal for my husband & I and our 2 teenage sons. Let me tell you, it was! The 4 of us agreed the house was absolutely perfect!! We literally had not one complaint.

These are the reasons why:

1) Location, location, location! --in very close walking distance to the grocery store, a larger grocery store is slightly further but still in walking distance. Taxi's are very affordable since the house was nearby most of the hot spots. Great restaurants very close by like Jimmy Buffet's, Rock & Java, Jeanie's.

2) Home felt very secure w/the gate & the safe in the bedroom. Nice to know I don't have to worry about my passport & pesos while being a tourist.

3) The casa has need to bring your beach towels, don't worry about bringing any entertainment because the DVD collection was quite impressive! The rooms were very comfortable & the home has great decor. Extremely clean! A/C in the bedrooms and living area worked great!

4) Knowing I could call the house representative at anytime, 24hrs gave me great peace of mind. When you are in a different country it's nice to know you have a contact close by to help.

5) Internet connection!!! Bring your laptop.

We were there for 1 week and I will most definitely recommend staying at Casa Carlita.

Loved Casa Carlita!

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who just returned from a week at Casa Carlita and would highly recommend this property. We loved it! It is so well equipped with anything you could need and so appreciated the internet and phones, which were very helpful. The air conditioning is set up perfectly. The location is incredible, a block from a large grocery store, 2 blocks from the ocean and a short walk to downtown. Our favorite part of the home was the pool/patio area. We spent a lot of time around and in the pool and reading and playing cards in the pool/patio area.

The services of Guadalupe and Victor were amazing and another example of the many great features of Casa Carlita. We have traveled a great deal and have never been happier with a property that we have stayed at. The owners have thought of everything and we would highly recommend staying at Casa Carlita! We'll be back!

Favorite Get-Away Spot

  • 5 of 5

One of our favorite get-away vacation spots! We have stayed at Casa Carlita many times. The house is perfect for one or two couples. This was our 35th anniversary so we made this trip by ourselves. The house is clean and cozy. The kitchen is fully supplied and has a fresh water cooler. The living / dining area are perfect for visiting, watching TV (lots of CDs to choose from) and playing cards. There are two large bedrooms and one small twin size bedroom. The pool is small but just the right size to soak and relax. There is a scuba soak tank and outside shower. The manager and maid took great care of us! We will definitely be back!

Casa Perfecto!

  • 5 of 5

We are divers and we have been to Cozumel many times but this was our first time to stay at Casa Carlita. From the initial inquiry and timely response to make our reservations to the final hours of our stay, everything was perfecto! Fred met us at the airport and showed us the way to Casa Carlita, waiting patiently at Alamo rental car while we picked up our car. The sleeping arrangements were perfect. The beds were very comfy, the rooms were very quiet for sleeping, and individual air conditioning units in each bedroom allowed for various settings by each guest. The showers provided plenty of hot water and the water volume was good. We fixed several meals in the casa and found everything we needed including the blender for protein shakes. There is an outdoor charcoal grill in the patio area and we made chicken, fish and lobster that was delicious. :-) The pool was a nice addition just for an occasional cool off and they have several floating mattress if you want to just hand. There were two mountain bikes for guest use but we had a car so we didn't use them. Towels were nice and fluffy and thirsty. The maid service was awesome, I wish I could take them home to my house. The keep the Casa really nice and clean when you have 3 guys to look after and guests coming over to visit after diving. At other condos and homes we've rented, maid service hasn't been included. This was an awesome perk for me! Not to have to worry about cleaning up after 3 guys! The location was great, close to the grocery stores and also at the south end of town so that when we headed to the marina to get our dive boat we didn't have to go through downtown traffic. They have two phones that you can use free of charge, one local and one to call the US. The local one really came in handy to get in touch with our friends that live in Cozumel and to call local restaurants, etc. The internet was good and reliable. The entry level to the pool and house is handicap accessible. We had a local friend visit us who is in a wheelchair and he was able to get around with a little help to get the chair over a small step. We met a few of the neighbors and they were really nice. I highly recommend this Casa! It was truly "Perfecto" for all of our needs and I think based on the reviews that you will love it too!

Perfect house; great service.

  • 5 of 5

As five friends traveling for diving and other silliness, Casa Carlita was just perfect. The house is very comfortable with stocked drinking water, a fully appointed kitchen, and more towels than even our large group could use at once. The dive gear rinse tank and outdoor shower got almost as much use as the pool.

The house is walking distance from Mega for groceries and Aldora Pier to go diving. As well as all of the tourist and local nightlife. Once you're done eating, drinking, and dancing, you can retreat to the quiet courtyard, cool off in the pool, and crash before starting all over again.

As business owners, we sometimes have to work while traveling. Casa Carlita made this easy by having fast wifi and a internet US number. We could even stream music and video.

The management company and Victor in particular were great helps in getting us all in and out of the house without issues. We knew we had someone we could count on for help if and when we needed it.

Can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

I can't say much that hasn't already been said except to add that words cannot express what an awesome, amazing place Casa Carlita is for your stay in Cozumel. LOCATION - PERFECT.

NEIGHBORHOOD - SAFE & QUIET. ACCOMMODATIONS - OMG! Really, I'm not kidding. Carla has thought or everything. The kitchen is fully equipped, TV, DVD, VHS, although we never used them. Individually controlled AC in each room. Enough bath towels, hand towels and beach towels for an army. Add to this a housekeeper that will come as often as you need her and Victor your property manager if you need any help or advice.

We brought our best friends with us as they have never been to Cozumel and they were so impressed I'm sure we will be annual visitors to Casa Carlita.
