About the property

Stunning Latin Modern 2 BR for 6, 2 Bath & Modern Kitchen, Walkout to Sea/Pool


Everyone who has seen this newly remodeled spirited condo has found it dramatic, modern and breathtaking.

It is a spacious 2BR located at a point of special beauty on Cozumel Island. Its pool and sunning area is a symphony of water, tile and grass. The pool is large enough to do laps and include a water jet spa. Snorkling is fantastic with a convenient ladder entry.

Everything in the condo is absolutely new, fresh and first class.

A stylish cement platform sofa with leather recliners decorate the living room. The new furnishings are custom made after the designs of a modernist Mexican architect. Dramatic masonry pillars and wall alcoves define the spacious living room and large dining room. Canvas, handpainted murals by Judith Kjenstad decorate the walls and alcoves. Judy is a well known Scandinavian folk painter who has produced for our condo some remarkable paintings inspired by Mexican folk painting.

If you love to cook, you will be amazed at this kitchen. Granite counter tops, GE Profile appliances including a dishwasher and convection oven.

The Master Bedroom has a king bed with a new pillow top mattress. The room features a custom made dresser as well as built-ins in the large closet. Because of the size of the master, there is a sitting/reading area for your enjoyment in front of the glass oceanview windows. A separate vanity area awaits you and there is a large walk-in shower.

The back bedroom features two double beds and a large closet and built in dresser. Two attractive windows view a internal garden area. The second bathroom there has a separate vanity as well, with a large walk-in shower.

We have packed these spaces with amenities we enjoy, like an audiophile stereo with IPOD docking and an LCD TV/DVD combo for your movies or ours.

The Costera Norte 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 cruisers leaving the ships for town and the taxis that follow them. San Francisco beach is daily stacked with cruise ship beach visitors and the jet ski and activities.

When Mexico decided to provide an ocean retreat for the President, it selected Cozumel as the location. They chose the North Drive (Costera Norte) for the location. So the President of Mexico is our neighbor to the south.

There are reasons why our three 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?" Many condos that advertise "right on the ocean" are actually buried in high density complexes near the ocean or located in high rise condos that feel more like apartments than private condos. Our condos are located on one of the most pristine shores in Cozumel.

We owned an historic Inn in Stillwater Minnesota for 18 year. We know how quickly a property can become a "rental". Our goal is to make this condo feel like you are staying in the owners home, which indeed you are!

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 18 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.

Our condos 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 2010

Why Jill Lawson chose Zona Hotelera Norte

COZUMEL IS COMPLETELY SAFE! A recent survey by a major newspaper declared Cozumel to be the safest place in Mexico. It is an island, isolated from the drug wars 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

Our condo is special because of its fantastic setting. But 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 just kind of pushed aside. WE JUST LOVED LIVING TOGETHER IN THIS FANTASTIC PLACE!"

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with our stay in Miramar 102. Although it was only for a few nights, it was the perfect end to our Mexico vacation. We especially loved walking right out the patio door to the lawn and beautiful pool and we spent lots of time there swimming and chatting with other Miramar guests. It was great to be able to jump right into the ocean for a dip, but as the current was strong (right after Hurricane Nate swept past), we didn't venture far to snorkel! The ocean views were fabulous and we enjoyed watching the boats and cruise ships going past. We had a most spectacular sunset one evening as well! The unit was lovely and kitchen very well appointed, so we had all we needed to keep us very comfortable. Based on suggestions, we dined at Guido's twice and had wonderful meals both times! (Would definitely go there again!)

Thank you Jill and Truett! We really enjoyed our time in your lovely condo!

Live the dream of your own ocean side estate.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I with two of our closest friends stayed at Miramar 102 in October of 2017. First thing you want to do when you arrive is to open the walkout curtains to see the view for yourself. We can say from experience now, that it is breathtaking. The first thing you see is the turquoise ocean and infinity pool embraced by coconut trees gently swaying in the ocean breeze. Then, the second thing you want to do is to immediately slip into your swimsuit and pop into the pool for some well-deserved relaxation after your travel day. The condo is wonderfully appointed with anything you could need for cooking, snorkeling, entertainment or relaxation. . I really felt like we had our own private estate on the ocean, a very comfortable and wonderful place to stay. We definitely will be back in the future. Inside the condo there is a big screen TV to watch DVDS (which they have an extensive collection) or the vacation videos and pictures you took during the day. There is a great sound system to plug your iPod, MP3 player or in our case with the available high-speed internet, Sirius XM’s via our travel laptop. We would prepare our breakfast and or lunch and go out to dinner to one of the many of the excellent places located on the island. How do you find these places? Easy, the owners have a binder in the house chock full of information on best places to eat, places to go, things to do and where the grocery stores are. Another great source of information is journal of the other the travelers and their experiences on this island. The owners also have a couple of well-trusted people on the island to help you schedule things if need be. Outside the condo, you can kick back and relax in the lounge chairs, hang out in the pool, or if you are feeling adventurous, you can walk the plank or just jump off into the ocean. You can even take the stairway down and slip into the water via the ladder. The snorkeling is along the shore line is most excellent. You just head south along the shore and follow the wall. There is an incredible amount and variety of fish, coral and sponges. We spotted four species of eels, several lionfish, French and queen angelfish, sergeant majors, stingrays, butterfly fish and many more. When you are ready to head back just turn around and go with the gentle current moving you back north back to the condo. You cannot go wrong with this place. We would give it 10 stars if we could.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

This property was nice. It’s not as big or glamorous as some of the other condos on the north side but it works for smaller families or couples. The outside was maticuously maintained. Jill was a good host who called to check up on you to make sure everything was going well. The inside of the condo I wouldn’t call modern but it’s well maintained and in good condition. This is an excellent place to say when visiting Cozumel.

Spectacular location and beautifully furnished condo

  • 5 of 5

Miramar 102 oozes easy living, relaxation and training 'opportunities' (we were in Cozumel because I was competing in a triathlon). The immaculate pool, right in front of our porch, gave way to some steps down to the rocks and sea swimming. David and I were able to run from straight outside the condo north along a super quiet road and track for a 10km route and similarly, bike straight from the door round the island. It was easy to buy food at the various supermarkets - especially Mega - many thanks to Laura, the housekeeper, who bought in some groceries the night we arrived. I really recommend hiring a car if you want to see the east side of the island as there is no public transport, only taxis. We went several times to an east coast beach restaurant for whole deep fried red snapper(about £12 for 2) and in San Miguel we had an outstanding meal at Guido's. The most memorable times were watching the stunning sunsets from the condo and lying on the loungers by the pool with a few other quite chilled out residents of all ages. David and I hope we can return - without the tension of a race - and enjoy even more of what this rather special condo and setting has to offer. Thank you to Jill & Hubby x

Amazing stay in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this very clean and modern 3 bedroom condo. It has an amazing view, swimming and snorkeling. We even saw a family of dolphins swim by! We met with Eduardowho was recommended by the owners. Eduardo is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to things to do and places to eat. He recommended a dive master, "George" who was professional, patient and extremely knowledgable. We highly recommend a stay at Truett and Jill's Mirarar condo 302.
