About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + 1 Bath,

Relax your days away on our quiet, private, sandy beach gazing at the stunning Caribbean Ocean with a margarita in one hand and your favorite book in the other. Experience living in the only one-bedroom corner unit for rent at Residence Reef where you’re surrounded by two full walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and an extra 125 square feet of wrap-around deck. And the added bonus is that neither owner above or below me rent out their unit and rarely come to the island, so you won't have anyone staying above or below you. Enjoy one of our two private pools, or hang out at the roof-top solarium. World-class dive sites are just minutes away with a quick pickup on our private dock. Rest well at night knowing you are in a gated community with 24-hour security on-site.

My sunny corner unit features both ocean and pool views, has 69 U.S. television channels, FREE U.S. telephone calling and wireless internet (bring your laptop). Our full-sized kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and is fully equipped. All you supply is the food and the beer. You’ll have a spacious bedroom with a king-size bed and comfy sleeper-sofa in the living room. All this picture is missing, is you.

The beach is very private and quiet, however if you’d like a more party atmosphere, Carlos n' Charlie’s is a short 150 yards down the beach. You’ll also find parasailing, jet skis, mountain climbing, massage, shopping, hair braiding. Horse-back riding and even camel riding is available a few miles South of your condo.

A short drive to the colonial town of San Miguel provides excellent restaurant choices from Thai to Italian. Enjoy shopping, museums, swimming with sting rays and dolphins or the island’s premiere golf course.

In short, Cozumel has something to offer EVERYONE!

About Laura

Born and raised in Colorado, I have spent my life traveling and diving the world. I have a wonderful family and feel richly blessed with the wonderful people I have in my life.

Laura purchased this condo in 2005

Why Laura chose Cozumel

I first came to Cozumel 30 years ago for diving and fell in love with the place then. I remember saying to myself then, 'I'd love to have a home here someday.' Well, dreams really do come true. I was able to buy this beautiful condo 5 years ago and have loved it ever since. I was born and raised in Colorado. Now I spend my winters in Cozumel and Summers in the mountains of Colorado. Life couldn't be better.

What makes this condo unique

This is the only one-bedroom corner unit available for rent here at Residence Reef. With two walls of solid window, and a wrap-around deck, the condo is sunnier and feels larger than other units. We have plants on the deck for privacy, but the views and open feel are wonderful.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is one of those perfect places that you can’t believe you’ve found. The condo is beautiful, clean and has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The bed is wonderfully comfortable, the condo is spacious, well appointed and fabulously peaceful. We had friends staying there who were not on the corner and their condo felt like a dark cave compared to ours. The two full walls of sliding glass doors and the wrap around balcony makes this condo bright, sunny and wonderful. The ocean view from the balcony is simply gorgeous and the sofa on the deck is so comfy for having your morning coffee. Now we understand why it’s booked so much, so we’ve already reserved our stay for next year. To top it all off, Laura is extremely helpful with any question you have and is so easy to work with. Simply put, we absolutely loved it.

Exceptional condo and beautiful property! Our favorite snorkeling spots were Money Bar (also good breakfasts) and Sky Reef beach club. Best in town restaurants were Kondesa, El Moro and Kinta. We had a wonderful sunset dinner just down the road at Alberto's On The Beach. Watching the sun go down from the condo balcony was a treat as was our visit to the Rasta Bar at the south end of the island (great margaritas). Most reassuring and helpful was the fact that Laura was always just a phone call away to answer questions. Very special vacation!!!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week in Residencial Reef 8200 and loved every minute of it. Right on a private beach and two swimming pools at RR. Use DIVE WITH MARTIN and they will pick you right at condo. Short drive back into town to go out to eat or go shopping. Never felt any anxiety in being in Cozumel. Very protected resort. Will definitely go back

Incredible Ocean view from wraparound balcony

  • 4 of 5

Full fantastic ocean view and pools view from balcony. The resort property is amazing. We enjoyed our week here. We liked that there were salt/pepper/spices and lots of coffee filters. Entryway is REALLY cute and we like the tropical decorating style. Not a huge fan of the sheets/bed pad/bed. The sheets were very slippery bunching up on the bed and I bashed my feet/legs on the rattan frame several times. Laura was great to work with.

Quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay. It was a relaxing place to enjoy with a comfortable feel. We loved relaxing on the outdoor sofa. The kitchen is nice and the condo feels roomy. We would stay again.

My husband and I have tried to rent Laura’s unit for years, but it’s always booked. This year we made it and it was worth the wait. Her unit is on the corner which makes all the difference. The living room is two full walls of windows. It is bright, open and has a beautiful view. The other condos we’ve stayed in feel like you’re in a cave compared to this one. It is well appointed; has everything you need. Sheets are nice, bed is comfy, towels are great. We’ve already booked again for next year because we simply can’t go back to an inside condo and Laura’s is so wonderful. Plus, she's great to work with. Answered all of our questions and even helped with renting a car.
