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...

Great location, sweet view

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Did Ironman Cozumel, this condo was a five minute walk to Chankanaab where the bike transition area was located. Awesome view of the ocean. Great beach and swim area.

Owner's Response: Diana & I always appreciate the kind words that our guests offer us on these reviews. Sometimes we are perplexed by "losing a star" without knowing why. A glowing review should light up all 5 stars...Hippie Bob

A memorable week at Bob and Diane's penthouse condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay and felt very much at home. The views from the condo were spectacular--what a treat! The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. It was clean and nicely decorated. We were there with two adult sons so the 3 bedrooms were perfect. The beds and bedrooms were comfortable. Maid service was great and more than we expected (they came 3 times during the week). Jordy, the manager, was always responsive and helpful. We loved snorkeling right off the beach and swimming in the pool, especially at sunset. The location was very convenient--away from the crowds but not too far from town either. We were there for a triathlon and the bike race went right by the condo. We then walked to the finish, a little more than a mile away. We rented a car from Thrifty as Bob recommended and had no problems. It would have been a real hassle if we hadn't. We heard about potential problems with car rentals, but we didn't have any, as long as you know you'll have to pay for liability insurance (no getting around it). We almost always parked at the Mega Supermarket and walked from there when we wanted to go into town. The drive to town was about 15 minutes. We cooked meals in the kitchen most days and found the appliances worked well and we had pretty much all the cookware, utensils, etc., that we needed. We went on 4 scuba dives and they picked us up right at the beach in front of the condos. We had lovely meals at Rolandi's and the Money Bar. We enjoyed the local museum where there was a nice restaurant overlooking the water for lunch. I contacted Bob a few times before the trip and he always responded right away. We would highly recommend this property and if we find ourselves back there, we'll definitely want to stay there again. It was hard to leave!

Owner's Response: First of all I find this review to be very humbling; proud to be part of a group of people that work hard at pleasing our guests and Nature provides the rest. Karen is a very giving person and offered us helpful advise on how to improve while maintaining her "happy smile". We look forward to her return...Hippie Bob

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
