About Hippie Bob Hunter

My wife & I are retired from the Chocolate business, and I am now an author of self-help and children books known as Hippie Bob Tales. Diana & I welcome you to our Island homes...

Hippie Bob

Hippie Bob Hunter purchased this condo in 2005

Why Hippie Bob Hunter chose Quintana Roo

The pristine waters of the Caribbean sea caresses our sandy beach where the swimming, snorkeling & diving are amazing. This is a very private, secluded and quiet area of the Island located next door to the famous Chankanaab Park.

What makes this condo unique

The sounds of the ocean waves, the songs of the birds and the sights of the boats and cruise ships that go by...

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

So happy to rent from the Hunters again. This was our 4th or 5th stay and this location is by far the best. Easy snorkeling right out front, just steps away. The condo is beautifully decorated and the beds slept better than ours at home. Perfect location for a relaxing vacation. Restaurants, shopping and bars all very close. Water sports next door.Thanks again to Bob and Diana.

Wonderful Location ~ Great snorkeling!

  • 5 of 5

We came with our three children ages 10 - 18 and this was a perfect fit for us. We brought our own snorkeling gear (recommended) and enjoyed great snorkeling right from the beach. The condo had everything we needed. We cooked several meals there and ate some in town. Groceries were easy to buy at the mega mart. This is the perfect location to be away from the hustle and bustle of town, but not so far that it was inconvenient to go to dinner. You will certainly want a rental car. We took several day trips to locations on the island, but spent any down time at the pool or on the beach. The complex was very quiet, often we had the pool or beach to ourselves. Sometimes one or two other families or couples. The short walk to the beach and the sunset views would be hard to beat anywhere else. We were able to arrange a snorkel trip to pick us up right at the beach. We purchased an underwater flashlight and enjoyed some night snorkeling ~ saw octopus, squid, eel, sting ray, and lobster right in front of the condo.

If you don't mind making your own meals and drinks, we were very happy to be away from the lines and crowds at the big resorts. Felt much more relaxing and no long hikes across a big complex to get to meals, pool, beach, etc.. We would happily return.

Owner's Response: Frankly I very much like the interaction with all our guests, some requiring more involvement than others. Brenda was one of those "easy guests", requiring less help than most. I could tell that she is a very busy person, but I also knew that this "Chill Time" would be greatly appreciated. Diana & I hope that she will remember us the next time the Island whispers her name...

just what the doctor ordered

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Bob & Diane's on several occasions. Everything is as advertised. If you are looking to get away and experience peace and quiet in a beautiful tropical setting, this is the place for you. The walk from the coffee machine to the water front is about 50 feet. The snorkeling off the property is very nice. And it is a delight to have a glass of wine by the pool at night and contemplate who put all those stars up in the sky. There are numerous activities in Cozumel, and the "downtown" dining options are plentiful and delicious no matter what your preference for cuisine. I'll keep coming back.

Spectacular views from the Penthouse. Beach entry to the Sea was difficult.

  • 4 of 5

The great ocean view from the Penthouse was fantastic! The beds were comfortable. The couches in the living room were not comfortable. The condo was very clean. Enjoyed having a washer & dryer to do a few loads of clothes. The very small coffee maker needs to be replaced by a regular sized coffee maker for coffee drinkers. The closet safe did not work. We enjoyed the air conditioning when needed & the ceiling fans & extra fans were greatly appreciated. The ceiling fan above the dining room table is getting noisy. Thank you for the flowers, fruits & beer upon arrival. Having water provided was a big plus. Having our own parking space was nice too! We would recommend this rental property to others. Thank you for sharing this property with us. Best regards.

Owner's Response: What is interesting about this review is that the safe does work & lock. The key was not inserted correctly. The small coffee pot was purchased by the previous guest and unknown to us as the "Big Coffee Pot" was put away in the cabinet. We fixed the squeaky fan...All is good in Paradise. Diana & I take great pride in our Penthouse home and fully understand that Paradise is not a place but rather a state of mind...Hippie Bob

March '14! Late review, Sorry Hippy Bob! & Diane

  • 5 of 5

We did a last minute Spring Break to Cozumel, 2014! Stayed in the upstairs condo, for 3 nights, then had to switch downstairs for 2 since we booked at last possible moment! No problem. 2 Adults, & 15 yr old. View from upstairs is awesome. Hammock and outside table on porch were well used. Terrific sunsets. Inside is better than advertised. Very clean, huge rooms, comfy beds, A/C cold. Great kitchen with all appliances. Couple restaurants nearby. Recommend a rental car. Dianne recommended some good restaurants. Seafood & pizza. Grocery store in town 15 min. We got b fast and lunch stuff there ie. eggs, bacon, juice, panaderia, & large jugs of H2O. Salsa & guacamole, & beer, too! Downstairs had gorgeous view also, convenient in & out access to beach. Quiet! Equally as good as top floor. Go out snorkeling right off the beach, & head left all the way to dolphin pens, especially when tourist aren't there...early, late, Sunday. Dolphins come right up to you! Very relaxxxxing, comfy vacation. Thx Hippy Bob! PS. Go to Coconuts for HH and dinner at sunset. Great meal! Hasta la vista! Mike, Holly, & Sean. PA

Best location!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in the Paradise Condos for several years (love them!), and have coveted the ones closest to the beach and on the ground floor, where you can walk right out your front door and feel the sand on your feet. This year we stayed in one of them. The location simply can't be beat, the condos, both the upper and the lower, are very comfortable, nice furnishings, include washer and dryer, lots of towels, beach toys, including masks and snorkel gear (but bring your own). Snorkeling right off the beach is such a treat. The Paradise Condos have to be one of the best places on the island.
