Casa Blanca is open, light and airy yet provides privacy for its guests with a locked front gate and tall privacy walls, which surround the sides, and back of the property.

Casa Blanca offers something no condo in Cozumel can offer, privacy! You will be the only ones in the house and the only ones using the pool!

The fresh water swimming pool is very refreshing and a welcomed feature of this home. The private backyard has lounge chairs, beautiful trees, bushes and plants. An outside shower is available for rinsing and maintaining your dive gear or rinsing off after the pool.

Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed with decorative headboard and an extremely comfortable mattress. Air conditioning, ceiling and floor fans, as well as enormous closets, are provided for your comfort. One bedroom has a private bath with shower; the second bedroom has a full bath just off the hallway.

Casa Blanca is conveniently located 4 blocks directly up from the ocean and Aqua Safari, one of the many dive shops, and also 4 blocks to the main square with a large selection of shops, restaurants, and bars.

All linens, utensils, fresh bottled drinking water, as well as the use of a full set of golf clubs is included with the house. There is optional made service available, either everyday, every other day, or just once, please mention when inquiring if you want maid service.

The homes caretaker Miguel is available to pick you up at the airport of ferry pier. Miguel can also help you arrange tours, give recommendations for restaurants, bars, rental cars, ect. He will even help you with grocery shopping so the fridge is full when you arrive at the house.

Casablanca is a very comfortable rental property at a reasonable rate compared to most other rentals in the area and already has many yearly visitors before listing on VRBO, I look forward to your visit.

About Andrew Clay

My name is Andrew and I lead a far from ordinary life. I left the retail world in 2004 to take a job with Norwegian Cruise Line and have yet to leave the Caribbean. After my first visit to Cozumel in 04 I immediately knew this is where I wanted a house. The dream of owning a home came true when I stumbled upon Casa Blanca, a charming casita in the middle of downtown Cozumel with much more personality than some of the big new condos on the island.

I work 6 month contracts at a time on the cruise ships so I am not able to be at the house except for 2 months or so out of the year, that’s why I’m here, I want to share my lovely home with everyone else.

My favorite things to do on the island are snorkeling, diving, watching the sun set with the ships leaving in the background (when I’m not on one), sitting in the main square with ice cold $1 beer watching people, going to the other side of the island and being the only one on the beach, drinking at Coconuts or Rasta Bar, snorkeling at Punta Sur, the list could go on for ever. I am in Cozumel regularly with work but unable to stay at the house as its usually just for the day, but I look forward to meeting you if you happen to be at the house while I’m in town.

Andrew Clay purchased this house in 2009

Why Andrew Clay chose Cozumel

There are few houses in Cozumel that can offer you what you will find at Casa Blanca. Your own private pool in the back yard that you don't have to share like at a condo. Within a 2 block radius you will find 4 or 5 restaurants that have amazing empanadas, panuchos, pozole, tostadas, and 2 blocks to the left you will find carnitas (mexican marinated slow cooked pork) that will melt in your mouth. The house is also located 4 blocks off the water, and 4 blocks south of the main square, both places you will find unique shops selling handicrafts, tequila, high end jewelry and watches, cosmetics, and more. Inside the house there are all the comforts of home, updated appliances and kitchen utensils. High speed internet and cable as well as AC throughout the house to keep you comfortable. I have seen many of the other rental properties around the area and in my opinion very few compare to Casa Blanca. I look forward to having you as my guest.

What makes this house unique

Very short walk to the main square and waterfront. Laundromat 1 block away. Private back yard with pool, something most condos cant offer.

Beautiful comfortable house - walking distance to everything

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with a nice pool (a must have dealing with the Cozumel heat). House is spacious, lots of windows and in the middle of a great area! Walking distance to the water, excursion pick up locations, AMAZING food and bars. We had no issues with the house, it was spotless when we arrived, beer in the fridge, and a great binder with recommendations on food, shopping, and anything else you may need.

Highly recommend.

Truly a great rental for the price.

  • 5 of 5

Great property to have for a cozy, relaxaling vacation for 2 people. Miguel was attentive but not bothersome. We opted for no maid service and enjoyed not having some one in the house everyday. The house needs a few minor repairs, everyday wear and tear. We will definitely use this property again. The bar 2 doors down was entertaining, horrible singer but the music stopped at 5 everyday......otherwise quiet neighborhood, close walking distance to town, 2 bicycles available to use.

Beautiful, well stocked home made our stay in Cozumel amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just how it was portrayed. Cute, clean and well stocked. Lots of towels, everything we needed to cook. Back courtyard and pool were every bit as inviting as the photos. Close walk to great local food as well as the more touristy areas. Recommend renting a car to be able to explore the best beaches for swimming. You can easily walk to the beach from the house, but the port area is not a swimming area. We drove South and found beautiful, secluded beaches where we got engaged! The house was the perfect romantic getaway for such a special occasion! Andrew and the care taker, Miguel were very helpful leading up to and during our stay. We will be back!

Diving Vacation 2016

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Blanco and it was the perfect location for us. The house is very close to the city center (where the fountains are) and four blocks from the water. Andrew gave us great instructions so we had no problems getting on the shuttle bus to the house. ( Maybe a ten minute ride) the kitchen had every accommodation you could wish for, but why cook when the empanadas stand at the end of the street and the little bar two doors down are so close? We loved the little garden in the back and the swimming pool were great after a morning diving. The location felt very safe and the neighbors were always friendly. We had a great time I would definitely recommend renting this house.

Authentic

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house in the middle of authentic Mexican city. Fantastic food close in all directions. Excellent café/garden centre two doors down! Rented a car on the island- made sight-seeing much easier. Nice pool-we all enjoyed cooling off! House is fully stocked with anything you could need, AC works amazing, great stereo, comfortable beds. Would definitely return here. Andrew was quick to reply to all emails and made booking/paying easy.
