Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

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 Playa del Carmen

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.)

Another great stay at Casa de Jefe

  • 5 of 5

As always, the property is in immaculate condition and well equipped for all of my family's needs. We will return again and again. It is close to town and we walk to dinner and shopping every night. A short taxi ride to the beaches...it really is the best of both luxury and convenience! Thanks again :)

The best place to stay in Cozumel!

  • 5 of 5

I love this condo. It's nice to be able to cook dinner for ourselves and not have to eat out every meal. I can bring less clothes because they provide a washer/drier in the unit. Internet, international phone and tv are also perks. It's close to the shops and bars and its gated for safety. It's a comfortable home we love to visit!

Another Awesome Week at Casa de Jefe

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th stay at Casa de Jefe and I can't think of a single reason I'd want to stay anywhere else. Everything I need that isn't at the condo is just a few blocks away which isn't much! I take advantage of having laundry right in the condo; therefore, I travel with carry on only and avoid the outrageous baggage fees that most airlines charge. Arrival day usually includes a quick trip to the supermarket for a few staples. I'm lucky in the sense that one of our group is an early riser and apparently likes to cook breakfast. No running around trying to find an early breakfast in the morning before the short cab ride to the marina. The taxi's are so convenient, just a quick one block to the water front, or if you'd prefer you can call one from the phone right in the condo. Speaking of phones, there is also a Vonage phone in the condo making calling home free. The wifi is fast which makes it a breeze to post photos of our time in paradise. The afternoons after diving are spent poolside with a few cold refreshments while we clean our gear in the rinse tank. The complex is quiet and secure with locked gates and security in the evenings. You can't go wrong with Casa de Jefe!!

Luxury condo with a very high convenience factor

  • 5 of 5

I am a repeat customer of Casa De Jefe & when they say your home in Cozumel...it is the truth. You have a full kitchen and a full size washer/dryer just like home. The linens are of high quality. The location is just a short stroll to the central square. Being so close in downtown allows you to get out & experience the local culture. The gates are coded & security if always present at night.

Cozumel features some of the best scuba-diving in the western hemisphere. For the non-divers, beach clubs abound with great food and snorkeling. Casa De Jefe puts you right in the heart of El Centro with in an easy walk of the main plaza and all the downtown restaurants, so you can stroll to dinner and walk home along the Malecon next to the ocean.
