About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Condo, (Sleeps 6)

Let Casa De Jefe be YOUR home in Cozumel. Located just north of the main plaza and one block back from the beautiful Malecon, Casa De Jefe makes the perfect base of operations for your Cozumel adventure. Don’t waste your time in an impersonal hotel; feel at home in our home in Cozumel. A top floor unit with vaulted ceiling, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit has room to spread out and relax. The master suit features a king size bed and huge closet with a safe. The attached master bath has two sinks, so there is no arguing on vacation. The glass walled shower is large enough to share too! The first guestroom, the blue and white room, features a comfy queen bed and the other, the green room, features two twin beds. A hall bath with a large glass walled shower is between the two bedrooms.

Casa De Jefe features a fully equipped kitchen with gas oven and stove, fridge with ice maker and cold water supplied by bottled water. It has all the stuff you need: juicer, blender, toaster, coffee maker and bottle opener! With all the great inexpensive restaurants nearby, you may just want to use the microwave to warm up the leftovers. Hey, why cook in paradise, but if you want to, it is all there. Even better, Casa De Jefe has a full size washer and dryer! Pack light and just wash your clothes. No one will notice you wearing that same flowered shirt twice in the same week! Each bathroom is stocked with fluffy high quality towels and in the laundry room you will find additional beach towels. Each bedroom has its own mini-split air conditioning as well as the one for the shared area. Of course, being on the top floor you can often open the windows and enjoy the tropical breezes.

It is great to unplug on vacation, but if you are like me, you like to stay on the grid. Casa De Jefe features DSL Wi-Fi for your use. In addition to a local landline phone, we have a Vonage phone that will allow you to talk to the States and Canada as much as you want. (or as little ?) Friends and Family can call for the price they would pay to call Pennsylvania. (You don’t have to answer…) We have a couple of power strips to charge those electronic as well as a cord to connect your IPod to our small stereo.

Additionally, Casa De Jefe has a nice covered patio sitting area with a ceiling fan and ringed with plants – a nice place to relax in the evening or watch your family in the pool during the day. A large pool is there for your use and usually quiet. It has a nice shady palapa so you can sit by the pool out of the sun to enjoy a good book or a nap.

The complex features a gated parking area so your car, if you rent one, is secure as well as night time security staff. The area is safe and well lit for nighttime strolls. Located on the edge of the action, the area is peaceful at night, but you are a short walk to the nighttime action. There is a small public beach about one block north along the water with a beach club restaurant. South of the condo, restaurants and shops are everywhere. Be sure to check out Los Cinco Soles, one block west and 2 south, for great, quality souvenirs and memories. If we can help sharing our knowledge or love of ‘La Isla’ with you we are happy to do it. After all you will be staying in our home…

About Richard 'El Jefe and Susanita

'Susanita' and I fell in love with the Island of Cozumel in 2008 after visiting as new scuba divers. After a trip or two, we decided two things: 1. The diving in Cozumel was so wonderful, and 2. We wanted are little piece of Paradise. After searching and soul searching, we went all in and bought. While I am still not retired, I try to get down as much as possible among the many friendly people in the oasis of rest and relaxation.

Richard 'El Jefe and Susanita purchased this condo in 2010

Why Richard 'El Jefe and Susanita chose Cozumel

After searching the area and our wants, we knew we needed some room. We wanted to share the joys of Cozumel with family and friends, so we chose this beautiful unit at Las Ventanas. It was so tastefully decorated, we changed very little. Now we have a roomy place to share time in paradise.

What makes this condo unique

The beauty of Casa De Jefe for us is its proximity to everything in town. After a day on the dive boat or at a beach club or whatever, we can get cleaned up and stroll through El Centro and its many choices. Whether it is the upscale Kinta, a very affordable high quality Mexican Bistro whose food should grace the pages of a food magazine or a local cantina with mostly local families, or even some of the great street food, it is all there and close by. After dinner, stroll home along the water or stop at a friendly bar for a night cap, or hang out in the plaza and see what is going on, then stroll home. Of course mornings, you will want to stroll down to Zermatt bakery and snag some breakfast treats, again close enough to enjoy them there or home on the patio. Close to everything is why we chose Las Ventanas. (Really close. Not the kind where it's far away, but you can walk, rather the kind it's easier and faster to walk than drive even.)

Top Notch Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at Casa De Jefe was outstanding!

The owners, Rick & Susan, are incredibly thoughtful in providing everything you could possibly need to relax in style and enjoy all that Cozumel has to offer.

The condo is very clean, comfortable, and extremely spacious with stylish, beautiful decor and lots of special touches such as books, magazines, games and more to make it feel just like home.

The beds are very comfy and there are fans in each bedroom if you need them for the noise, as well as AC to stay cool.

The showers are great, never running short on hot water for our family of 4.

The kitchen has a great set up, fully stocked with every necessity you will need including a dishwasher, washer & dryer and so much more. If you need it, they probably have it, just ask. Patti, the property manager is excellent and attended to all inquires in a friendly, timely manner.

The pool is beautiful, clean and almost always empty, and very relaxing. The patio is also a great place to relax and do some bird watching, the humming birds are beautiful!

Rick & Susan provided so many wonderful tips on entertainment and restaurants to visit, that were all a quick, easy walk from the condo and fabulous. We were treated with exceptional hospitality everywhere we went.

The extra attention to detail made our stay at Casa De Jefe nothing short of AMAZING! Thank you Rick & Susan!!

Amazing island home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved this condo. So close to everything in town with access to many great restaurants and the beach is only a few blocks away. We hung out at the pool a lot, swimming and playing games under a palapa. Wonderfully spacious in the condo and the two bathrooms made it especially nice for 4 women to have enough space to get ready. Love, love, love it!

WOW.. Exactly as advertised and more

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten days in Paradise in April, 2017. Beds were comfy, A/C worked, ceiling fans were great, fully equipped kitchen, easy walking distance to the downtown pier for pickup, walked to almost everyone of our favourite restaurants.

We are looking at heading back in October.

Prompt replies to all queries, maintenance man arrived in minutes on the one tiny issue we had (loose plug on the dishwasher). Easy check in/check out. Easy payment, even from Canada with foreign exchange and foreign banks.

Great condo and stay

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in El Jefe and Susanita's condo was just as great as the first one 3 months ago. This place is very roomy, AC works great, daily maid service (except Sundays) keeps everything nice and clean and the new master bedroom bed is sooo comfortable. Decorated with locally sold art work, comfortable furniture, all the usual kitchen appliances and a washer and dryer, you have everything needed for a nice stay. We eat in some and go out to our favorite restaurants as well, all within a 15 minute walk, so there's no need to rent a car. As we come to Cozumel to dive, several times a year, we also enjoy the 15 minute walk to the pier to catch our dive boat.

This condo complex is just a block from the main avenue and just a 5 to 15 minute walk to many places. It's newish, quiet and has an elevator if you would rather not do the steps.

La mejor estadía que se puede tener en Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

La casa del jefe es el mejor lugar para vacacionar en cozumel. Desde la atención, comodidad, ubicación y belleza. La casa del jefe sin dudas el mejor departamento que hemos alquilado. Quedará en nuestro recuerdo por siempre. De volver a Cozumel no alquilaría en otro lugar que no fuera la casa del jefe. 100% recomendable. La casa del jefe es "EL LUGAR" para hospedarte si vas a cozumel.

A home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in Cozumel. This time, we decided to stay in a Condo versus a resort or hotel. Casa de Jefe lived up and exceeded our expectations! Property was amazing and in a quiet area. Close enough to everything downtown (two blocks away from the main road) yet just far enough away that you didn't hear anything from the multitude of cruise ships that come in. Everything is in walking distance. Great restaurants, shopping, grocery store just down around the corner, etc. The owner (Richard) was very quick to answer any and all questions we had and the Property Manager (on site) was very nice and helpful. This condo unit we thought was probably the best unit in the complex. It's on the top floor and faces the north west so you can sit out on the balcony in the morning drinking your coffee without the sun glaring in and then enjoy a bit of the late afternoon sun while you sit down with a cerveza or margarita! The unit has everything you would ever want or need and the bonus of having the washer and dryer was fantastic! We only came with carry-on.

All in all, I can't recommend this location and unit enough. We'll be back for sure!!!

Thank you Richard!
