Overview

Cozumel Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

It is not too early to book Xmas!!!!!! Any 14 days around Xmas for only $2,800!!!!!! 3 weeks available around Xmas, from December 16, 2016-January 6, 2017. You and your family will love our condo. Casa Marquel is fun & convenient. At Casa Marquel, all that Cozumel has to offer is literally steps from your door. After visiting Cozumel for 28 years, staying at various all-inclusive resorts, we decided we wanted to buy a piece of this paradise. We chose a condo near “El Centro”. We love being able to walk just about everywhere and we know you will love it too. The condo is decorated with traditional Mexican “Rustico” furniture, making it homey and comfortable with all the conveniences of home. Casa Marquel has 1300 square feet of open living space with an additional 300 square foot balcony overlooking the pool and lovely garden area. Casa Marquel is safe and secure, located on the 2nd floor of this gated community. There is an elevator for your convenience, yet our condo is just a quick jaunt up and down one flight of stairs.

Condo accommodations can be significantly less expensive than staying at a hotel while offering many of the same amenities with much more living space. While this fabulous little island is famous for SCUBA diving, there are so many places to go, things to do and places to eat that you may never experience while staying in a hotel.

Casa Marquel’s comfortable living room has a flat screen TV with satellite U.S. channels. There is a Vonage phone so you can call home for free. There is also a local line for calling taxis, the dive shop or making reservations. We have free high speed, wireless internet. There is a safe which is large enough for most laptops.

There are 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 large full bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have king beds and one bedroom has 2 twin beds. The master bedroom has an en-suite bath, while the other 2 bedrooms share a full bath. You won’t have to flip a coin to see who gets the master bedroom, as there are privacy doors separating the other 2 bedrooms and bathroom from the main living area, so that it can be closed off, making another master suite.

All bedrooms have individual air-conditioning and ceiling fans for your comfort. The living area also has air conditioning and a ceiling fan. There is a separate laundry room in our unit with a washer and dryer.

The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, dishes, silverware, blender, toaster, pitchers and glasses for margaritas. It also includes a dishwasher, large refrigerator, microwave and gas stove. There is even a juicer for fresh-squeezed orange juice! Fresh, clean bottled water is provided. A fun and special feature of our condo is the palapa-covered bar.

The large sparkling pool is absolutely beautiful! The spacious pool area is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and has 2 huge palapas with tables and chairs offering shade when you have had enough sun. There are plenty of lounge chairs for hanging by the pool…we can guarantee you’ll be doing a lot of that! A poolside BBQ grill is available by request. A rinse tank for scuba gear is located by the pool.

After spending the day at any number of awesome beaches or a day of SCUBA diving, you can enjoy the authentic cuisine of San Miguel de Cozumel that night. We will have many dining and activity suggestions for you in your rental packet.

Casa Marquel is only a block from the water and “Malecon” (waterfront drive) and is only four blocks from the center of town. There are dozens of great places to eat and drink within a short walk.

You do not need to rent a car, but if you chose to rent one, there is off-street parking.

A small grocery store is located just a couple blocks away and a convenience store is just across the street. There are two huge department stores with groceries that are just a short taxi ride.

Maid service is provided weekly. You may have maid service more often for a small fee. Should any questions or issues arise, our property manager lives on-island and is available 24/7. English & Spanish are spoken. The rental management office can arrange any excursions.

It is fun to explore Cozumel. You can SCUBA dive a different reef every day. You can go to a different beach every day. You can eat at a different restaurant every day. You can go to a different bar every day…or if you find a place you really like, you can go there again and again…or you can stay in and enjoy time with your friends and family and cook some burgers on the grill. A game of cards on the balcony at night is always fun. You can also eat yummy Mexican pastries from the bakery down the street on the balcony for breakfast.

We will have tips for you in your rental packet along with other helpful information such as local medical facilities and good to knows. You will absolutely love a stay at Casa Marquel! We look forward to having you as our guest!

Love It!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed many times in Cozumel, this was our first time to rent a condo. What a wonderful place! Marla made it very easy to get and sign the contract and kept in contact with us throughout our trip. The condo is in walking distance of great places to eat, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Downtown is very close to do sightseeing.

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

First time to Cozumel, family of 5 (2 adults, 3 teenagers). I cannot say enough good about this place. Marla's communication with us through the whole process was no less than amazing. She gave us many tourist suggestions and advice to make us feel at home. The condo is extremely well equipped....you name it, it's there. Kitchen has all the dishes, utensils, appliances, etc that you could possibly want as well as spices and condiments in the fridge! Beds and bedding are very comfortable, bathrooms are huge and well stocked with towels, there's even a first aid kit in the cabinet (I always pack my own but next time will save the space in my luggage). The beach towels are huge, and there are plenty of them. Also pool noodles in the closet. We didn't spend much time at the pool but the few times we did we practically had it to ourselves. Gorgeous pool area with palapas and chairs, so quiet and inviting. Most of our days were spent exploring some of the many beach clubs on the west side of the island (Paradise Beach, Mr. Sanchos, Playa Palancar, Money Bar, Playa Azul). A short walk to the water (less than 5 minutes) and taxis were plentiful to take us to the beach clubs. We did rent a car from Rentadora Isis for a couple of days to explore the east side of the island which was well worth it. We loved the many beautiful and practically empty white sandy beaches. Also worth mentioning is how safe we felt in Cozumel. The condo itself is very secure but also just walking the streets felt extremely safe. We had no qualms about letting our teens walk into the town square (so close...less than 10 minutes) and wander on their own. We will definitely rent this condo again if we ever make it back to Cozumel. Thanks Marla and Cliff for sharing your wonderful home!!!

Dive Trip To Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a more awesome place to stay in our 7 days on our Cozumel dive trip. Not five minutes from the airport, easy access to taxis. Made a good deal with a taxi driver to pick us up and bring us to Caleta to dive boat and back every day. This made it very convenient for our schedule. This is our fourth trip and the best place we have stayed at. Better than a hotel. It was completely walled with security, nicely landscaped, clean, well kept. Had WIFI and a Vonage phone so we could call our families at home, woohoo!!! We had to keep our data off and on plane mode most of the trip. Marla and Chiff decorated their condo, very Mexican-Cozumel, classy and comfortable. The beds were big and very comfotable. The third bedroom had two twins. It had everything we needed. I loved the showers. Awesome! I loved the washer and drier. Maid service every day. We made sure and thanked them generously, because they did a great job for us. Air conditionering because it was very hot and rainy. That didn't stop us. We had no trouble walking 5 blocks to Palmaras for breakfast everyday before diving the beautiful gorgeous reefs of Cozumel. Two blocks to the seawall. Back downtown again for margaritas at Wet Wendy's or tons of Restruants in and around the beautiful remodeled Town Square. Took short, $4-5 taxi rides further into San Miguel and dined at El Moro and La Perlita's. The food, margariitas, food and family owned service was wonderful. The condo owner gave excellent suggestions about money, resturants, taxi, activities, directions, what things should costs. It helped us tremendously. After our dives, enjoyed beers at the great pool area. It even had a dunk tank we used to clean and drain and dry our gear. We brought no kids with us, but the big playground and swallow area of the pool made it very kid friendly. Next time we wouldn't mind bringing our grown kids and our grandchildren. And we noticed it was very handicap compliant by USA standards and elevator. And there were families living there full time. So, the wild, partying crowd would not fit in. I loved the quite beauty and the singing birds. There is so much to do there. Thanks to Marla, she answered all our questions very quickly. Even called us when we got there to see if we were OK. Good people. Thanks.

Comfortable, big, clean, safe, wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Marla and Cliff's place was great. Better than they advertised. The beds were comfortable, the furniture was nice, and everything felt really clean.

It was big and airy - very spacious. It was stocked with lots of beach towels, linens, and fresh barrels of purified water.

We had two adults and three almost-adults, and we never bumped into each other. Super safe, close to town and all the ferries and taxis, but quiet. The appliances all worked (and were nice), and anything we needed, the property manager was ready and happy to help.

I couldn't recommend a better place to stay in Cozumel. Marla and the property manager, Patti, helped from everything from favorite places to eat to great diving centers to even medicinal help for a sick child. We felt like we were at home.

It was really comfortable. We could cook and eat in and lounge and relax and just have an amazing time, right there in the condo!

Go - you won't regret it!

Excellent all around

  • 5 of 5

I was exceptionally pleased with Marla’s condo. It was larger than anticipated, and everything was very clean. The location was excellent, near enough to downtown but far enough away for peace and quiet. It always felt very safe. Marla and the on-site property manager were beyond helpful on many issues. It really did feel like home at the end of the week. I plan to return again!

Everything in the condo worked flawlessly- TV, washer, dryer, dishwasher, BBQ, DVD, and most importantly, AC. TVs have HDMI so you can connect your laptop. All rooms were large and comfortable. The bathrooms were large and stylish. I am a fancy cook, and the kitchen had everything I needed. The pool was nice, and there was an adjacent dunk tank for dive gear. An unexpected benefit was free bottled water delivered right to the condo! This is extremely helpful in keeping traveler’s stomach at bay. There were plenty of towels, linens, utensils, etc. And everything was very clean.

The wifi internet works well for email, web, and skype, but don’t expect to be streaming netflix video (note- you’ll need a VPN to stream outside the US). The island’s network does go down periodically (both internet and phone data), but not long enough to really bother us. The condo has an internet phone for cheap calls back home.

We made the conscious decision to stay in town, and visit a different beach each day, instead of staying south of town on a single beach. It was nice to be able to get to the town center and all the dive boat piers with less than 15min walk. There is a small convenience store 5min away, and a huge modern store ("Mega") 25min walk along the water. Taxis work very well overall, with the closest taxi stand 2 blocks away.

Marla provides an immense amount of helpful information to her renters. We never felt lost or disconnected. She also checked up on us several times during our stay. She has a very helpful property manager named Patti who lives in the condo complex. She can answer questions, provide more water, and help solve more complex problems. We had a health emergency during our trip, and Patti was able to find a solution in under an hour. Amazing. This type of care is invaluable.

Some random thoughts:

*Verizon has very cheap temporary Mexican phone plans, including data.

*Go explore the ruins on the mainland. Use Alamo in Playa del Carmen. Brand new cars, and excellent service

*Do the turtle rescue on the east side of the island

*You can’t go wrong with Aldora divers

Third stay at this wonder condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite condo at this complex! We've stayed 5 times at this complex and 3 have been in Marla and Cliff's place. The condo has such a great relaxing decor and we simply feel at home there. This last stay of 5 nights included 2 couples and 1 of our adult sons. We were comfortable, had plenty of room to spread out and had everything we needed. Patti, the office manager, is fantastic as well. If you have a need, such as using the grill or another jug of water, or questions about just about anything Cozumel, she has or will find the answer. We will be back as soon as possible!
