TRAVELER'S NOTE; BECAUSE OF THE TYPE OF SHORELINE AND THE NATURAL OCEAN CURRENTS IN FRONT OF THE CONDO, WE DO NOT HAVE A SEA WEED PROBLEM IN THIS CONDO.
Our condos have been know as MYCOZUMELCONDO for sometime. Welcome to our studio- a unique property.
IN 2004, WE BOUGHT THIS STUDIO GIVING OURSELVES THE CHALLENGE OF CREATING A TRULY IMPRESSIVE VACATION DESTINATION IN A SMALL SPACE. OUR GOAL WAS TO INCLUDE ALL THE AMENITIES OF OUR LARGER CONDO BUT AT HALF THE PRICE. OUR GUESTS TELL US WE SUCCEEDED.
Imagine spending your week in a stunningly decorated studio condo, pampered with regular maid service, right on the ocean, and playing in the Caribbean Sea, that is so blue and clear, it takes your breath away. Welcome to MY COZUMEL CONDO Studio 302.
My Cozumel Condo 302 is a wild and funky but, an energetic, coming together of Latin and modern decorating. We have taken the small size of this studio and filled ever square inch with art and amenities in order to provide one or two guests with the best lodging experience, in arguably the nicest condo setting on Cozumel island.
There are reasons why our condos have one of the highest returning guest rates on the island. First is the unique location. If you are considering a condo rental, first ask "is it right on the ocean?" We are located on one of the most pristine shores in Cozumel.
Then you must ask, "What will our seaside recreation area be like?" Many of the recently built condos are essentially huge concrete decks with gorgeous pools. Many condos that have sandy beaches do not have privacy and in Mexico, every citizen can join you at your beach if it is accessible.
Our condo's private shore area cascades down on three levels. There is a pool and sun deck level with a cold water shower, then you step down on either side of the pool to the sand beach where there are two palapas and a pergola.
A unique nautical observation deck extends out into the ocean. From here you enter the ocean by ladder or from the pier. "We snorkeled all over the island but discovered that some of the best snorkeling was right out in front of your condo." wrote a guest.
Our studio is on the third floor, one flight of stairs up from the entrance gate. You will immediately be impressed with the creative lighting giving the feeling of Murano glass. The bath on your right is entirely decorated with a vibrant ceramic tile and has a well positioned shower stall.
Step farther into the space and you will see a cleverly planned galley kitchen- a stove and oven, microwave, under-counter refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, a sink and cabinets that provide the utensils and table-settings to allow you to fix meals if you choose to do so. The condo's first open space has a table for two beneath a stunning, original wall mural of a Caribbean sunset. At night, the table folds down and a Murphy bed (just under queen size) folds out of a fabulously crafted cabinet with "his and her" wardrobes and drawers on either side.
Then you step down into a living area. There are two loveseats opposite the LCD Flatscreen TV and DVD Combo. On the same wall is a large chest to store your suitcases. Finally, you will step though glass doors onto your private balcony with a table and two chairs and a 180 degree view of the Caribbean...from the town of San Miguel to the historic Cozumel marina. Watch the cruise ships depart in the evening and the dive and fishing boats leave every morning.
Calling to and from the States is free and we have wireless internet. We also have a local phone line for your calls for reservations at one of Cozumel's fantastic restaurants. Our zealous maid will clean your place regularly, including your dirty dishes and our agent will answer every question about the Island.
When Mexico decided to provide an ocean retreat for the President, it selected Cozumel as the location. They chose the North Drive for the location. So the President of Mexico is our neighbor to the south.
The North Drive is the exclusive quiet area on the island where luxury condos are being built. If you rent another unit south of San Miguel, your week in Cozumel will be faced with thousands of cruise ship patrons leaving the ships for town and the taxis that follow them.
From our condo you can walk to the central square. It is less than a mile. Or stroll north a couple of miles to our Jack Nicklaus golf course to hit a ball, or enjoy some of the best bird-watching in the Yucatan. This is our location.
However if you are looking for a party condo for Spring Break, do not bother to call. Our condominium prides itself in being a quiet paradise in stark contrast to the noisy night of hotel culture around us. We offer serious discounts for off season and "near to the date" bookings. Why choose less than the best for your vacation?

About Jill Lawson
Jill and I have spent most of our life in Minnesota or California, though Jill was born in Canada. We owned a 7 room historic Bed and Breakfast for 16 years. It was a terrific business and it taught us several things. One, if your are not constantly upgrading your property, it turns quickly into a "rental". Also, the sense of being at home, comes from the details...we work on the details. Finally, from the linens to the decor, we aim at providing the best. Jill is a nurse although innkeeping has usurped her attention in her professional life of recent years. She works the Medical tent for Iron Man though. She also has an amazing touch for decorating and the condo is her canvas. We have been retired for 3 years. I am on the Board of the American Swedish Institute. Collecting has always been a passion- art pottery, Midwest regional painters, and vintage Lotus cars. The condo came about because we have loved Mexico for years. We spend 3 months there a year. We walk to the golf course or to Starbucks every morning. We feel blessed and love nothing more than hearing from our guests that their stay in our condo was the best vacation ever.
Jill Lawson purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Jill Lawson chose Zona Hotelera Norte
COZUMEL IS COMPLETELY SAFE! A recent survey by a major newspaper declared Cozumel one of the three safest places in Mexico. It is an island, isolated from the violence seen is some parts of Mexico. It is a family community and protected by wealthy Mexican families, as a place to educate their children. We walk any street at any time of the day or night. Cozumel is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It has not been exploited by hotel culture. It is proudly Mexican and from the weekend Fiestas to the local leaders and citizens, people here love being who they are and where they are.
What makes this Condo unique
The sound of the waves in the evening. Reading. Snorkeling. Catching some rays on the sand. Dinner out at...fabulous restaurants. Walks. Diving. Golfing. Just being together. We hear one thing often, "We had all these plans to be out and about, doing things. But when we got to the condo, we just loved the place so much that, one by one, our plans were just kind of pushed aside. WE JUST LOVED LIVING TOGETHER IN THIS FANTASTIC PLACE!"

We stayed at this perfect little studio for 1 week and are already wanting to book next years vacation. The studio is small but perfect for a couple. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony looking out to the most beautiful blue water we have ever seen! The snorkeling out back was some of the best we have ever seen and it was easy to jump in and get out of the water. Most times we were the only ones on the man made sandy area. The property was exactly as described and an easy walk to the center of town where there are too many amazing restaurants to list! We would definitely book this condo again!
Very nice little studio for those focused on the island, the water, and access to town by foot rather than the amenities of a glam hotel setting. Very cozy, but very nice. Perfect location, and great waterfront area with no crowding. Great snorkeling right out the door - no reason to spend money on a big trip when it's all right there. Nice little walks to eating places and town is only a casual 15 minute stroll. Owners and management good to work with - great people! Loved our week!!
This studio is perfect for two people trying to relax and enjoy the beautiful view. Snorkeling was one of the highlights as there was always fish to see.
Charming studio with a great location.
What a beautiful week we had at Cantamar 302. The location is fantastic and the views of the turquoise Caribbean are breathtaking. We enjoyed some of the most exquisite sunsets of a lifetime from the terrace off of our condo.
The room is well appointed with everything an active couple could need for a great, comfortable vacation. We watched cruise ships and party boats pass by regularly.
We would love to return soon for another great getaway!!!
Thanks for the review great to meet you!
Perfect unit for two respectful people who want a great location and view.
The condo is truly perfect for two people who want to wake up with a view of the Caribbean, be able to snorkel every day if you wish, see the sights, take walks to town, enjoy a good meal down the street and have a safe, comfortable place to come back to. (My original review is in the guest journal, written while having coffee on the balcony our last morning, watching the boats greet the day. Oh to be there now!) Grounds are well kept, plenty of lounge chairs poolside and below overlooking the ocean, areas for sun, shade, a nice shower to rinse the saltwater off. We had many places to go and see around the island but loved the days we could just lounge in all these wonderful amenities. Truett & Jill have put the perfect touch on this small unit and thought about every convenience. I trust that everyone who stays here is respectful of their space. If you are people who need to spread out and are used to the large bedrooms & baths of sweeping resorts, this probably isn't your place. It's mentioned that the water takes a long time to heat up for the shower; we weren't inclined to waste that much precious water waiting so ours were tepid; that's fine- you're in Mexico. :) Never turned the TV on at all (never do in a beautiful place like this), there's a lovely DVD collection though. Also never used the AC at all. The breeze coming through this unit (typically east to west) is fantastic! For the rare calm night when the air is still a fan would be nice (a ceiling fan would be truly lovely, but I'm sure some would say there's AC! just use that if you're warm!). We walked to and from town quite a bit, except the days which we rented a convertible VW bug; it was a hoot to drive, not recommended if you haven't driven in foreign places before and/or you don't know how to drive an old manual. You don't necessarily need a car, our favorite breakfast (and would have loved to try dinner, so many great places!) was El Bungalow, down the road. Walked down to the small mini-mart Sedena the first night for necessary dos Equis, eggs, tortillas, cheese and hot sauce to get us started. Cabs are fairly common along the main road, more ubiquitous closer to town. Walked all the way to the cruise docks one day, stocked up at Mega and cabbed back for about $5. But, the car will help you get to the east side (so beautiful, wish we had another day to just picnic over there) and down to Palancar for a beach bar/snorkeling trip day. We truly loved this place & we will be back!
Excellent property and condo
We have stayed at Cantamar and in this condo many times and, each time, it is equally perfect. Although very small the condo unit we rent has everything that 2 divers need for a week in Cozumel. Cantamar is perfectly situated -- only a 10 minute walk from downtown. Highly recommended.
The best snorkeling on the island off our pier, Nicklaus designed golf course one mile away, A sand beach as well as a poolside sun deck, Bonefish fishing, Scuba that is second to none, wind surfing and kit surfing lessons, Mayan ruin tours on the island and to the Yucatan, Dolphin adventure, Tarzan off-road tours, deep sea fishing, all-inclusive recreation beaches, quiet island location perfect for walking or jogging.
