Overview

About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 adults or 6 adults + 4 small children)

Welcome to Paradise! Compare our 4,200+ sq.ft. home to any other property and you realize you have found the real deal. This is the very best!

Imagine sitting in a hot tub on the balcony of your penthouse, watching the glorious sunset, sipping a chilled drink with gentle ocean breezes caressing your skin. Ahhhh!!

Next morning, you wake up early, eager for your first dive trip, or your beach chair with a book down at the pool area. You get your gear, head down the elevator and wait at your private boat dock to be picked up. Or you just settle into your lounge chair with a good book and snooze away the day.

Does this sound like the vacation for you? Does having a dive experience where you feel like you're flying across the reef thrill you? Or perhaps you want to travel with a large group and not feel like you're on top of each other? Desire a family reunion where you are all comfortable?

If so, come stay at Casa Corazón (House of the Heart), a spacious, diver/family-friendly penthouse where you will find the finest drift diving in the world! It doesn't get any better than this!

Casa Corazón is the penthouse (8th floor) in the gorgeous condominium building right across the street from City Hall. Your views are breathtaking facing the west, the south and across the island as well!

You are 3 blocks from downtown San Miguel (Cozumel), a 2-minute walk to the shops along the ocean, and yet you are far enough away from the tourist bustle to enjoy the crystal-clear waters and quiet.

Unprecedented luxury in a building built to the highest quality standards. To quote one of our recent tenants, 'The Casa exceeded our expectations which rarely ever happens.'

Your secure elevator opens right at the door of your Casa. Open your door, and the first thing that greets you is a breath-taking view across the Caribbean Ocean to Playa del Carmen and Xcaret through the 8-foot high floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. All windows and sliding glass doors have screens, and there are tropical wood ceiling fans in every room should you prefer gentle breezes and the sound of the waves to air-conditioning.

As you enter the Great Room, you see custom ceramic tile floors, striking carved wood, rattan, and leather furniture, comfortable sofas and chairs, lots of reading lights, a satellite-TV, DVD/CD, and stereo with surround sound. Casa Corazón's 4212 sq ft gives ample room for everyone to find a special nook or sufficient room to socialize and party. It's perfect for large groups of friends or family gatherings.

The dining table seats 10 comfortably. There is a wine refrigerator, bar stools, a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel LG appliances and various small appliances.

Four expansive bedroom suites each have their own private baths and balconies (check out the photos!). The Casa sleeps 8 people easily — no tripping over each other and plenty of privacy. One bedroom is even set up as an office if you want to work a little while you play. There is also a beautiful powder room just inside the front door.

Wireless high-speed DSL is available so bring your laptop! FREE calls to USA or Canada.

On the 800+ sq ft. oceanfront veranda is a hot tub (seats 6 to 8), chaise lounges, a table with 4 chairs and more. The veranda wraps around the south side of the building so you have a panoramic view.

Your elevator also takes you to the basement/garage, directly opposite the entrance to the beach and the tri-level pool. Tables with umbrellas and chairs, chaise lounges, palapas are on the clean white sand beach and by the pool.

There is a boat dock and dive rinse tanks; you can be picked up by any dive or tour outfit or scuba/snorkel right off your private beach. A secure storage locker is in the basement, so you don't have to cart your heavy wet gear up and down.

Across the street is Chedraui (a combination WalMart, Safeway, and Walgreen's), the local Cineplex and an Internet cafe if you left your laptop behind.

If you don't feel like cooking, there are many fine restaurants within walking distance or a short cab ride away. Many local restaurants will deliver to the penthouse, or if you wish, we can refer you to a chef who can prepare your meals for you.

If you want authentic local food, stroll down any of San Miguel's side streets or go to the Mercado. The people are all delightful and friendly. The culture is warm and inviting. It is safe here!!!

Your multilingual property management and concierge service provides daily maid service and can arrange for any number of activities – day trips to Xcaret, renting a scooter or car or even babysitters.

By the way, Cozumel is listed in travel magazines and by travel agents as one of the safest places to vacation in the world!

Why Kathryn Baker chose Cozumel

Cozumel is listed by almost every travel agency and magazine as the safest or one of the safest places to vacation in the world. Cozumel remains unchanged, but more beautiful than ever. The infrastructure is modern without losing the island feel. Services are wide ranging but professionally handled and there seems to be many things to do for everyone.

What makes this condo unique

The penthouse is the perfect place to watch the sun set the sky ablaze with color as it goes down or the moonrise shed its soft light on the waves just off your balcony. You can watch the cruise ships arrive in the morning and leave in the evening while you are eating or reading or perhaps sitting in the hot tub.

Everyone is amazed by the comfort but coziness of the penthouse. It is an experience as much as a place to stay. Even one of our friends who was born and raised on the island always gets distracted by the view and can't seem to stop taking pictures when he visits!

Guestbook comments from the manager

6-15-08My family has visited the El Cantil penthouse two years in a row now. From the convenience of a nonstop elevator ride, to the breathtaking view when the doors open, to the great service staff, and the spacious quarters, we have enjoyed every minute of our visits. The penthouse is spacious, with up to 4 bedrooms, and a large central living area and kitchen. Furnishings are elegant, yet comfortable. The staff at the El Cantil are constantly available and welcoming. The location is perfect. Right across the street from a large market, and walking distance to everything downtown, yet far enough away from the hustle bustle to make it private and quiet. The pool area is quiet and secluded, with plenty of chairs and or cabanas for those who want to stay in the shade. The grounds are maintained meticulously.I recommended this unit to friends who were traveling to Cozumel, who have done extensive traveling themselves, and they said it was the nicest place they’d ever stayed at and couldn’t wait to return. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The website is helpful, but if you can’t find the answer there, Allan can usually provide one. He is responsive and gracious. Just knowing that the penthouse is consistently nice and enjoyable is a great draw! I would not hesitate to recommend it to even the pickiest travelers!Diane Jensen

Excellent accommodations, great staff, wonderful location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had seven people staying at El Cantil, grandparents, my husband and I and our two girls. The condo was perfect, everyone had their own rooms and their own space, but the common areas were perfect for coming together for meals, TV and a card game each evening. The view was amazing. The staff at the condo was very attentive from the property manager to the housekeeping and the security. We had a wonderful, memorable family trip!

A TRUE LUXURY CONDO

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed in Kathryn's condo for a week of pure luxury and bliss. We were blown away as we entered and saw the view from the balcony.

Alex was there to greet us and walk us through the procedures.

Everything you could possibly need was provided. Even though icemaker doesn't work, there are enough ice trays to make your own. I left 2 more there for others to use.

Janet was an incredible maid. She even did some laundry for us. We tipped her extra for this service.

Walkable to most everything. The grocery store is right across the street. We tipped a young boy to help us with the cart and to return it to the store.

I DO agree with a previous poster regarding the A.C. It's tough to wake up during the night in a sticky sweat. If the cost of A.C. is so expensive, just up the rental price so your guests can be comfortable without feeling guilty.

I had a masseuse come in one day and we set up on the balcony. So relaxing with just the sound of the sea.

If I was to return to Coz, I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Awesome week in Beautiful Cozumel!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this amazingly beautiful property. We arrived in Cozumel and headed to the condo to check in. There was a slight hiccup at check-in, but Alex made sure that everything was set very quickly. The owners followed up shortly after and were extremely gracious about the snafu. Thank you again Kathryn!

The property was everything that the pictures showed and more. It was perfect for 2 families of four. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy. Janet took great care of us by keeping the condo nice and clean and we always had a fresh supply of towels.

The pool area was great and never packed. But don't try to swim over to Cozumel Palace to buy a cocktail! We got chased down! It's now all-inclusive and you can't go there without paying a significant amount! It was a comical thing for us, but don't try it! Just load up your cooler of drinks and enjoy the pool.

Diving was great and they picked us up straight off of the pier in front of El Cantil. Diving in Cozumel is some of the most spectacular I've seen around the world!

Dining... we had 2 places really stand out. Most impressive was dinner at Especia, an authentic Italian dining with the amazing chef Francesco. Another night, we had Chef Filo, come in and make us a dinner and it was a truly great experience. The shrimp ceviche was best I've ever tasted!

Kathryn, thank you again for a wonderful week. We will certainly be back. You were great to work with and always extremely responsive. Hope you keep this amazing property available to rent!

El Cantil Oceanfront Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic! High quality beds, linens, furniture, appliances.... loved our stay. They provide insulated cups, cozies, ice maker(manual) but works great, laundry(done by maid, but inexpensive), nice pots/pans, etc

Internet works great.

Beach access is nice, grounds maintained constantly. Parking secure with gate. Walk easily to everything.

View from deck is entertaining. Tons of boat traffic to watch. A cruise ship turned around right in front of us... and the boat was taller than our condo... people on the boat waved to us... fun!

Deck furniture is perfect, plenty of it. You can sunbath at end of deck and get plenty of sun. Even a faucet down there to get water and wet yourself.

All TV's worked, boys liked the football games.

My only complaint is the programmed A/C. We liked it at 74. It changes back to 78 about 4 times per day. This became our alarm clock.... woke up every morning sweating since the A/C was turned up in the room around 7am. Would of been nice to have uninterrupted sleep. The beds are fabulous.
