About Patsy

My wife and I, along with our two boys live in Northern Colorado. Patsy is an independent dental hygienist and I'm retired. Our son Dustin owns a contracting company in the Boulder area. Our son Matt is a student at Colorado State University. Our lives have been enriched by the people and their culture that surrounds this beautiful island.

Patsy purchased this condo in 2010

Why Patsy chose Quintana Roo

We first visited Cozumel while we were on a cruise ship back in 1996. We came back again the following year and we loved the island so much we just kept coming back. Since we were spending so much time on Isle of Cozumel we looked into buying here. We bought our condo back in 2005, right about the time hurricane Wilma hit. We were able to start renting our condo in Jan 2007.

What makes this condo unique

It's hard to beat the view from the patio of the beach and Cozumel Sunsets. You're just steps away from the beach. The property has two private pools & private beach area. Our condo is setup with stainless steel appliances, cooking equipment, American DISH TV service, wireless Internet & large screen TV (living room) with flat screen TV's available in each bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Patsy,

I mailed out the check for 1057.50 today. Hopefully I didn't wait too late and lose the unit. I am really sorry. Maria and I went on a vacation to St. Martin for our anniversary and just got back. Needless to say, that place pales in comparison to Cozumel. Trash all over the beach....people on the island so lazy they could care less about the tourists...units with bugs and in ill repair (and this was at a resort with a Gold Crown RCI rating)...just not a very good time. I can't tell you how much better our experience was with your place. We are SO looking forward to coming back to paradise and wiping the memory of St. Trash Island out of our mind.

Absolutely perfect, great condo in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Residents Reef is a great complex in one of the best locations, beautifull private beach that is never crowded, there is a pier right beside the resort to catch all your boating and diving excursions. Definitely have Veronica cook you at least one meal for a special night, you won't regret it. This unit is goes to the top of our list.

Awesome view, perfect location, and comfortable surroundings. We felt safe and pampered the entire stay. A definite must-do: ask for Veronica's sopa de limon! The best thing ever!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing, relaxing stay!

Patsy and Jerry have simple thought of every last detail in this home away from home. The condo is immaculate, well appointed with every convenience and SOOOO tastefully decorated! We were welcomed by the property manager who walked us through and answered our questions. We felt immediately as ease and at home. The housekeepers are super, very friendly, helpful and professional.

The floor plan is spacious and well considered. Obviously well constructed, very quiet and secure.

The views of the beach from the living room and master bedroom are breathtaking, exactly as pictured on the VRBO listing.

My wife and I are avid SCUBA divers and simply loved the location and convenience. We simply contacted one of the local dive shops and let them know what days we would be diving and our Residencias Reef location for pick up.....its that simple. Step off the terrace to the beach and walk to the pier to meet the boat (all the dive shops offer this service at no additional charge).

We had a awesome stay and won't hesitate to book again for our next trip to Cozumel!

The pictures on the website do not do this condo justice! It is beautiful. The patio, the beach, the condo were all first class. The beach and pool were never crowded! Hard to believe we were there at spring break time! The back bedroom could use a new matress and new pillows but don't let this deter you from booking this property.

The property staff are very helpful with booking taxis and everyone is very friendly. There is a fantastic snorkel rental just down the beach past the pier. It is Dive Palancar. Fantastic! I'm a nervous snokeler and I loved it! We saw a nurse shark, numerous star fish, a sea turtle and hundreds of fish. The dive staff are the best!

Victoria cooked us a great dinner our last night there. The only problem with that was that we had so many leftovers and we had to leave them. If you want Victoria to cook, don't wait until the last night! You cannot go wrong booking this condo. Thank you to the owners for a fantastic restful end to my daughters wedding in Puerto Aventuras. It was the wonderful, relaxing, wind down time we needed. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Absolutely awesome vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. You can relax on the patio, on the beach, or by the pool. Condo was beautifully furnished and the water and maid service was much appreciated. Plenty of beach chairs, never a hassle. Scuba divers will love the dock (you're last to be picked up and first to be dropped off) and the scuba dipping tank by the pool. Can't wait to go back!!!

This was our first time to Cozumel and it was a wonderful experience ~ we can't wait to come back again! Your condo was VERY nice, the ocean view amazing right out the windows and veranda. The beach in front of the condo was not crowded like the others we walked by. We enjoyed visiting with Luis, the manager, and Veronica, the maid. They were both very helpful and Veronica made us a delicious authentic Mayan meal one night. We especially appreciated having the washer and dryer and the extras like bamboo sheets, beach towels, lawn chairs, sun hats, and the welcome basket of goodies! We will definitely recommend your condo to others. We also recommend Scuba with Mario for great snorkeling/scuba diving, especially if it is your first time trying it. Our favorite restaurant in town was Del Sur, authentic Argentinian cuisine. We are looking forward to next time!
