About Rosalie Thomas

Don and Rosalie are both retired professionals from the Seattle area. We love SCUBA diving, sailing and skiing. Casa Calypso allows us to share our lives with our large family and fun friends. We usually spend our winters in Cozumel, and the summers sailing the beautiful waters of the Pacific Northwest.

Rosalie Thomas purchased this villa in 2010

Why Rosalie Thomas chose Quintana Roo

Cozumel is safe! It's an ideal vacation spot for an active family with varied interests! The grandchildren can swim at the beach or at the pool, the adults can SCUBA, go fishing or take off for the 'wild-side' of the island, and Grandma and Grandpa can kick back on the terrace and watch it all! In the evenings, we can gather on the terrace, or head into town for a delicious restaurant meal. Whether we're walking along the malecon, or looking for a party, Cozumel is a beautiful,safe, and friendly place for all the members of our family to gather. We love it here!

What makes this villa unique

Casa Calypso offers the unique combination of being private and outside of the tourist activities in town, but close enough that it's easy to join in at a moment's notice. We love the quite in the mornings, the easy access to diving and snorkeling, the incredible sunsets, and the breathtaking display of stars in the night sky. Truly, it can't be beat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just as advertised. As a group we have stayed at the property location before. Each time we rented from the same owners. Easy and friendly to deal with. They go above and beyond to assure your stay is a wonderful experience. The property is safe, clean and just an all around beautiful location in Cozumel. The view is amazing. The snorkeling from the pier is fantastic. Close to town. The property management team is wonderful. The house is furnished with all you need to feel just as if you are at home. We enjoy ourselves every time. Never disappointed. A+ service from the time you arrive at the airport to the time you leave.

The property is spectacular, truly a 5 star location.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay began June 18th of 2016 and it was for a week of Scuba Diving and adventure. In total, 10 people stayed at Casa Calypso and we found the house to be very comfortable and accommodating. We have traveled to Cozumel for the last six years and have stayed in houses and resorts, but Casa Calypso has been the best of all. You cannot beat the view from the living room windows and it is Oceanfront location is perfect. We would also like to comment on the staff who took care of us during the week. If you needed anything, Patty was right there for you. The housekeeping staff keep the property in pristine condition and the property security is watchful and very helpful. Overall, this property is a ten out of ten and we are already planning to return next year.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Calypso was the perfect location for our family of seven getaway. Everyone had a wonderful time. We love Cozumel and were excited to share it with some of our family. All loved Casa Calypso and its amenities. Patty was a phenomenal host - setting up last minute tours, checking on us daily for any assistance we needed, and helping us avert a disaster with a last minute departure change with the airline! We can't thank her enough. We packed a full week with scuba diving, snorkeling (which was phenomenal right in front of the house), deep sea fishing, golfing, swimming with the dolphins, parasailing, and tours. We look forward to coming back! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Perfect for a quiet, relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

With a one-year old and four-year old, we thought it would be impossible to have a relaxing vacation, but we found the perfect spot. The house is lovely and quiet, with exceptional views of the ocean. It's spacious and there was plenty of room for us and the grandparents. The beach and kids pool were both perfect for our family. The staff - Patti and Rodrigo were there every day to make sure all our needs were met. We used Chef Filo every day. His meals were not only delicious but having him cook and clean up was a true vacation for us parents. Access to diving was so easy from the pier. We have already booked our trip for next year!

Another enjoyable and relaxing stay at Casa Calypso

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another family gathering at Casa Calypso, second year in a row. The nine of us ranged from toddler to grandparent, from L.A., Oklahoma City and Wisconsin.

The spacious house and surrounding property were well kept. There was daily cleaning service. Property managers and owner were quick to respond to questions. We had Chef Filo for the week which was convenient for our large group. He excels at making margaritas and fajitas. :)

Snorkeling is a few steps away off the pier. We had pier pickup for scuba diving. The 2nd floor screened in patio with oceanfront view was scenic for private yoga lessons.

We rented cars so we could go grocery shopping downtown and sightseeing at other places on the island.

Overall, another great trip!

Casa Calypso - the perfect beachfront getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Casa Calypso for a family vacation. We had 8 people in our group - My husband and I, our oldest daughter, son-in-law, and 11 month old granddaughter, our 22 year old son, and our 20 year old daughter and her boyfriend. Communication beforehand was great - I heard from Rosalie right away, and she let me know that Amber & Rodrigo, the property managers, would be in touch soon. Amber and I corresponded several times before our trip. She made sure that we had a crib & high chair for the baby, and arranged tours and chef service that we had requested.

Patty, our concierge, met us at the airport on our arrival, and helped us arrange taxi transportation to Costa del Sol. When we arrived, Amber was there to greet us. She and Patty showed us around, and our kids were ecstatic, since we had not told them anything about the house prior to our trip.

Casa Calypso is even more beautiful & spacious than you can tell from the website photos. The views from the living room, and the upstairs patio off the master suite are amazing. The grounds at Costa del Sol are beautiful!

From start to finish, our stay was perfect. Each bedroom had a large, private on-suite bath. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare any foods we wanted to fix, & the fridge even had a few beers & bottled water waiting for us on arrival! When we first arrived, the house was a bit warm downstairs. Amber had the repairmen there immediately, & it was fixed FAST! In the meantime, Amber went next door, where Rosalie and Don were staying, and came back with popsicles for the baby!

Costa del Sol is a gated community, so we always felt very safe, and normally didn’t even lock the house. There is a safe on site if you need it. Any time we needed a cab, we would just let the gentlemen at the front gate know, & they would call one for us. They would also pick us up in their “gator” cart, and help carry our bags to and from the front gate.

Amber arranged several activities at our request, including chef services by Chef Filo. If you stay at Casa Calypso - don't even THINK about not booking Filo - his culinary skills are amazing!

Everyone we interacted with - Amber & Rodrigo, Patty, the housekeepers, front gate staff, and maintenance staff - were all friendly, accommodating. We got the chance to meet Rosalie & Don, too - an added bonus!

I could say so much more, but am running out of space, so I will just say - GO - you'll LOVE Casa Calypso!!

Looking forward to seeing you at Casa Calypso again soon! Rosalie and Don

Can't wait to go back to Casa Calypso!

  • 5 of 5

Cozumel is our new favorite destination in Mexico. The climate, the sights, the beauty and the people are all wonderful. Casa Calypso was a perfect destination for our two family group (a total of 9). Four of us long time friends and our college age children just loved the house and its killer location. The location right on the water was amazing, the pool was perfect, the pick up for diving right outside your rental house was so convenient, the cool snorkeling out front was a favorite of the kids, the sunsets were to die for and the house was so comfortable and fun. I had the luxury of staying in the upstairs master suite which had great views and an amazing bathroom. When not running around sightseeing or in town, we spent most of our time outside in the house deck chairs or at the pool. We always made sure to schedule dinner around the sunsets. We even saw frolicking dolphins one night right outside at twilight. If you like nature, there are pelicans, beautiful birds, iguanas, and colorful island flowers. You feel very safe inside this community of houses that are seem to be a good mix of owners and renters.

The owners of this house and the property management team are great to work with. They worked with us to arrange all our tours in advance including an in house chef for 4 meals. There is daily maid service and a great option you can call in town where they deliver almost any restaurant food to your door. It was fun to get pizza at the house! Next trip we'll order more meals in house because we often hated to leave. We rented a car for a week from Isis downtown. We visited the East side for an afternoon, we sailed the 12 metre America's Cup race, went diving, snorkeling and flew out to Chichen Itza.

I have never felt so welcome and comfortable traveling to a foreign country as visiting Cozumel and Casa Calypso. I've traveled all over the world and this is one of my favorite places now. I highly recommend a visit.

Casa Calypso, named for the famous dive vessel of Jacques Cousteau, is located right next to the incredible reefs that he made famous. World-class SUCBA diving and snorkeling are right out the front door! The private 135 foot pier provides easy access to the spectacular Santa Rosa Wall, the towering bolones of Palancar Gardens, and the many other sites that make Cozumel the #1 dive destination in Mexico.
