Overview

Cozumel Condo Rental Photos and Description

Paradise awaits you in this 2,780 sq. ft. wonderful and luxurious two stories penthouse with mesmerizing Caribbean sights. This is the place to really relax and forget about it all. “It is huge, and look at the incredible view!” are the two main comments we immediately get from our guests.

The photos speak for themselves, by far the largest condo in the beautiful and exclusive Cantamar building (more than twice the size of the other ones), a two stories penthouse with the greatest view in the building & island; this relaxing seaside property will embezzle you from the first moment. It has a big living and dinning room as well as a large kitchen, upstairs you will find a huge main room with a large balcony with an awesome view of the Caribbean sea and private bathroom. Another room next to it also with ocean view and another room with jungle view, both these rooms sharing a 2 shower full bathroom.

Towels are provided in the condo (3 for the beach). We are located in the second floor, no elevator, but there will be someone to carry your luggage when you arrive.

Calling to the States is free and we have wireless internet and dish cable TV . Our in island agent is available to answer every question about the island.

If you are a large family or a group that wants to have independency inside the condo this property is ideal for you, Cantamar is an exclusive building with just eight condos located in the quiet North side of the island, a mere 15 minute walk from the town of San Miguel, unlike the south side properties that are far away from town -meaning expensive taxi trips- and crowded by cruise ship tourists and their taxis. Also south side condos are mainly located at public beaches, so forget about getting the privacy you take for granted at Cantamar.

The presidential house is located 800 feet from us, and there are many good reasons for it: we have the best sea colors, sights, and snorkeling right out of the condo. Our man made beach has plenty of beach beds as well as two palapas and a wood pergola, our pool has an incredible aerial effect, and there is plenty of beach beds next to it. There is a ladder to access the sea and our Oceanside is known for having the clearest shoreline water in Cozumel, so relax & enjoy!

You want to relax, have a romantic getaway and be at ease with your children? This is the place to do it! There is a Jack Nicklaus less than two miles away, and you can go south to a public beach for wave runners, parasailing, and more. You are an Ironman fan? There is a cycling & jogging course just outside our condo! And swimming training in the sea is incredible.

We have central air both in the lower and upper levels, and also ceiling fans in case you want to avoid the cold air conditioning breeze before an early dive.

Scuba diving & snorkeling in Cozumel is breathtaking, having been a dive master myself I constantly got appraisals from divers all over the world about it, the deep, night, current, reef diving are unparalleled, including the world renowned Cenote dive, found only in the Yucatan peninsula. The condo is equipped with a diving gear rising tank & shower, and you can be picked up for a diving excursion on our private pier.

You also have a large selection of restaurants with delicious local and international food, you may go into town to discover them or just relax in your condo. There is also a very large shopping selection in town, both local & international.

However if you are looking for a party condo for Spring Break, please do not bother to call. We are a quiet, relaxing location and wish to stay so to the benefit of our guests.

About Juan Luis

We are a Mexican family that has enjoyed Cozumel since the 1940´s and we consider the island our second home, we are originally from Mexico City and we are related both to the cultural sector in Mexico as public cultural trust fund manager, and to the water treatment sector designing plants & supplying equipment for it. We try to spend as much time as possible in Cozumel and see to it that our condo feels like a home and not like a cold, unpersonal hotel room.

Juan Luis purchased this condo in 1990

Why Juan Luis chose Cozumel

We really think we managed to find an exceptional place in an exceptional island and we feel great knowing our guest enjoy themselves in it. We were the first to purchase so we had the chance to choose the best condo available, both the large spaces & incredible views have made a big diference for us. Cozumel is the place to fall in love with.

What makes this condo unique

This is an easy one: our condo is by far the largest in a great building, the rest of the condos are less than half our size; you have the living & dinning & kitchen areas on the first floor and the bedrooms in the upper floor, so if you want to have a nice dinner (in a superb glass, 10 chair dinning table) with the kids sleeping upstairs, not in the next room, be welcomed to do so. Also our great balconies in both floors will let you admire the unique sunsets or have a Caribbean view outdoor meal. Our large living room will allow you to sit and relax with your friends. The beach and pool are private (not many of these in Mexico since beaches are considered federal property), and we have direct access to the sea and our private pier to be picked up by boats.

Loved the ocean view from the master bedroom

  • 4 of 5

The description and the pictures are exactly as listed. Very large condo. Juan was very helpful. He was very easy to get a hold of and provided very useful island information. He also suggested someone to cook Christmas dinner for us and it was delicious. Our family had a wonderful stay at the condo. We really enjoyed the pool and the ocean directly behind the condo is spectacular, great place to snorkel and explore. It is actually one of the best areas to enjoy the water on the entire island. There is no seaweed and it is crystal clear. The only thing I would mention is that there is not an elevator at this complex, so be prepared to hike up a lot of stairs, other than that it was great. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need.

Resting Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has an enviable location allowing you to snorkel right in front of your place. Downtown is walking distance and sports and adventure services are all over the place! snorkeling, diving, fishing, cycling as well as transportation rentals.

It is really quiet and a great place to rest and the place is really pretty. It has an amazing mural in the dinning room and all the services a traveller would ask for: cooler, hammock, wifi, TV for late night movies, Netflix, even laundry set!!

I definitely recommend this condo!!

Escape...

  • 4 of 5

Just to help you with your ongoing effort to offer a great place to escape, I wanted to give you some more focused feedback that are the sum of the comments from our party:

Dining Room - Great table and chairs very nice for our large group! Wall mural was awesome.

Living room was very nicely decorated and furnished. (My wife wants to buy one of the little dolphin figurines on the corner table!)

Lower level patio was perfect - Nice chairs and table! Good view!

Upper Level patio - Great view, awesome hammock! A couple of small chairs would have been nice...

Kitchen - very suitable; no problems with stove or appliances! Water bottle very handy!

Pool / Sun area Great, very nice and private. Shower and Dive equipment area very nice.

Lower A/C was good; Upper A/C was a bit slow to come to life...

We did have two sisters come in to cook two nights... Veronica and ____? (sister).

We were diving with "Dive With Martin" and all was fantastic! Small boat, so no crowd and best dive sites! Contact Martin - Manager; (Reuben - Our Dive Master)

We will be back!

We are frequent travelers to Cozemel, but needed a larger place to stay for Holy Week. Got to Condo at noon on Palm Sunday, and had to call manager on his cell phone to let us in. All other guests in condo were very helpful while we waited for our room to be opened.

We are a family of scuba divers & found the condo to be perfect for our lifestyle - early breakfast, taxi to dive pier, pool & snorkeling in afternoon, naps, happy hour, walk to downtown for dinner, walk back and to bed!

Manager was very helpful & available, although we had few needs.

Beautiful view of ocean from our balconies, easy access in & out of ocean for swims & snorkeling.

Recommend a rental car for trips to town.

We hope to stay again next year!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Cantamar, Juan was very nice and worked with us to make sure all our needs were met. The snorkeling at the condo was wonderful. there was plenty of cooking supplies for our family, and enough space for us all to spred out and relax . The only thing I would recommend would be if you have any problems with sleeping the bed was very uncomfortable!! We would like to thank all the staff for all there kindness and making us feel welcome !! I would definitely stay here again!!

Fantastic Cantamar stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay for our family. We are all divers and wanted to be close to our favorite dive company "Pepe's Scuba". We booked this condo for the size, location, the view and it had a dock for us to be picked up for our dives. This is our first time using VRBO and the owner was really nice and helpful and easy to work with. The condo had a flat screen TV in the living room and we had internet which we appreciated. We loved the cool mural in the dining room. The kitchen had everything you needed. We made breakfast and lunch there every day. If we needed anything, all we had to do is ask and they brought it up for us. The building is clean and updated. I feel the property is a good value. It is well located in a gated complex on the northern side of town. It is a 10 to 15 minute walk to get to town. We are definitely looking forward to coming back and using it again. It is on the 4th floor so you must be able to walk up 36 steps.

Thank you Juan for sharing your condo with us!
