Overview

Zona Hotelera Norte Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Cantamar is located just North (the quiet side) of the town square of San Miguel. We are only a 15 to 20 minute walk into town. Also, inexpensive taxis are readily available in front of Cantamar. This non-smoking, air-conditioned, modernly rustic mexicana unit is located at pool level. It offers a private terrace and easy access to the freshwater pool, man-made beach, and the beautiful Caribbean water. There is a freshwater shower and dive rinse tank located adjacent to our patio entrance - PERFECT for divers and snorkelers. The unit has two bedrooms with king beds, and a sectional sofa can accommodate one more adult, or two small children, if necessary. The master bedroom has it's own private bathroom and a spectacular ocean view! The ocean view from the condo living area and swimming pool is just beautiful! There is great snorkeling, with easy ocean access, just steps away from the condo.

Only eight units share a private swimming pool and a wonderful man-made beach, with two palapas for shade, and a lean-to pergola with shade. Maid service, is provided twice a week for a seven night stay. Additional days of maid service can be added for an extra $20 per day. Beach towels are not provided, so please bring your own. The kitchen is fully furnished with a breakfast bar, and the dining room table can accomodate six people. Free, unlimited, long distance to the US/Canada and free high speed wireless internet are also included, along with TV, DVD and CD player(with Ipod docking). Private, gated location right on the ocean. A great place to 'get away from it all'.

Cozumel is a diver's paradise, consistently regarded as one the best places, on this side of the continent, for scuba diving. The island is known for it's consistent 100-150 feet+ visibility and effortless drift diving. The water temperature ranges between a low of 76 in the winter months, to a high of 84 in the summer. The diving, snorkeling and beautiful, clear water make this a great vacation spot for water lovers.

Besides the great water activities, Cozumel has many GREAT restaurants for every price range and taste, and is a shopper's paradise. It's an extremely good value, compared to other high-priced Caribbean island locations.

About Alexandra Beyer

I am a stay at home housewife (domestic engineer) that keeps busy taking care of her hard working husband. We both enjoy scuba diving and snorkeling. I also enjoy traveling, gardening, biking, reading, cooking, eating.......especially at all of the great places in Cozumel that we can't wait to return to after every trip. We both have taken up underwater photography and have gotten some amazing photos!! We think Cozumel is the BEST! It's in our hearts and souls.

Alexandra Beyer purchased this condo in 2002

Why Alexandra Beyer chose Cozumel

We bought Cantamar 102 because, first of all - we loved Cozumel! We think it's the best diving this half of the hemisphere. We also love the people and the many fantastic restaraunts on the island. We chose this location because of the beauty and closeness of the ocean. The water is crystal clear and the snorkeling is great! We are North of town, about a 20 minute walk into town, on nicely paved walkways. That is a big plus for us! The North end is, typically, much quieter than South of town. It is easy to get to from the States, and it is rather inexpensive, compared to going to the Caymans or Bahamas (Cozumel has much better diving that either). We liked the building size and the fact that it was built the 'Mexican' way. Older building, but built to withstand hurricane winds. The building is quaint and private.

What makes this condo unique

We are RIGHT on the ocean, with a beautiful palm tree-lined view. Our condo is right at pool level. No need to go up and down numerous stairs. Diver's dream. Rinse your gear right in front of the bedroom patio and carry 10 ft to patio to dry. Quiet location away from town, but close enough to walk there (15-20 minutes).

  • 5 of 5

Five years ago my wife and I booked Cantamar 102 for our honeymoon. I was immediately struck by the beauty of the water, the gorgeous view and stunning sunsets that can be seen from the condo. Throwing open the curtains in the morning reveals a front lawn of crystal blue Caribbean water with a cruise ship lazily floating by. The man made beach is wonderful to sit and watch the sun set, cigar and drink in hand. The interior of the condo is clean, lively decorated and furnished with everything needed for a long stay. If we had decided to stay in the condo all week we would have only needed to run to the grocery store one time. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the guest & master bedrooms can easily accomodate a couple each with their king sized beds. The two bathrooms in the condo are also great, there's never a rush or a wait. Internet was 20mbps and very reliable during our last visit. The TV is modern with HDMI inputs in case you want to bring an Apple TV for a rainy day or for the kids. The VOIP phone makes calling home a breeze and the local phone makes calling places in town easy. Cantamar is only about a mile away from the center of town; it's outside of the hustle and bustle of the cruise ships but close enough that a 15 minute walk gets you almost anywhere you want to go. Want to skip the walk? Take a cab. Cabs drive by very regularly and can provide a cheap, two minute long ride into town. We have returned two additional times since our honeymoon and always enjoyed the condo. My wife loves going into town to visit the spa, get a cup of coffee or go shopping. I love to sign up for diving in the mornings and hit Casa del Habanos for a great cigar. Snorkeling off the dock is excellent as there is a small reef nearby with lots of fish. This place is home away from home! I only wish we could visit more often :)

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 young teens) stayed in April for a week. The condo was just as described and the view was spectacular! The condo was equipped with everything we needed for our stay and was very clean. We had breakfast and lunch at the condo most days. The snorkeling at the condo was great, as good as any we experienced on the island. We snorkeled and used the pool just about every day. We walked into town easily and took a cab back most days. The restaurants Lexie suggested were all great. Definitely try to venture off the cruise ship strip as the restaurants near the port are more expensive. We hit Buccanos, Chakanaab and money bar bar for some different snorkeling experiences and all were excellent. Lexi was great to deal with (I had lots of questions), she responded promptly. We were glad we opted out of the all inclusive resorts and choose a condo, we got to experience more of the island and the locals than we would have otherwise. Not being able to drink the water was no issue for us at all, the condo had plenty of fresh water for drinking. We are back home wishing for the beautiful view, spectacular sunsets, watching the cruise ships come and go and the laid back atmosphere of beautiful Cozumel. I would definitely stay at this condo again should we ever venture back! Loved every minute.

Wonderful condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Beyer's condo from Dec 17-Dec 24, 2015 and had a super time. The condo is very clean, comfortable and has all the amenities you would need. During our stay the washing machine broke and we told the owner. They spoke to the property manager and had once delivered in a few days! This really meant a lot to us as our airline lost my wife's luggage for 8 days and we needed clean clothes. Thank You! There is a pool to cool off in if you don't want to go in the ocean and a nice beach on the lower deck to read your favorite book! The property is in a great location, there is amazing snorkeling right out your door, beautiful views of the ocean and unforgettable sunsets. You can quickly walk into town, nice walking trails and friendly people. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to experience the lovely island of Cozumel. We will be back from Christmas and ring in 2017. The owners were great to deal with and they will make sure you have a great vacation!

Our home when in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Cozumel since 2008 and have stayed 5 times in this unit. It is our first choice. After our latest stay, I decided to write a review on this wonderful property. The condo is spacious and tastefully and elegantly decorated. This first floor unit is on the same level as the pool and also offers spectacular views of the ocean and sunsets. As scuba divers, it is the perfect location; with a rinse tank and shower outside to care for your gear. There are bars to hang your gear on the back deck. Our dive operator, Living Underwater, picks us up at the main town pier, about a 25 min walk or a $5 cab ride. During the hot and humid summer months, we normally will walk to the pier in the morning and take a cab back in the afternoon. We also use cabs to get to most restaurants. I suppose we would save money by renting a car, but cabs are easier and you don't have to worry about having too many Sols or margaritas. While there is a full kitchen, we don't take much advantage of it; normally just having breakfast bars before diving and snacks other times.

Lexi is super easy to deal with and promptly contacts the local property manager with any concerns, which are extremely few. She provides a notebook with extensive local information.

Our favorite restaurants are: Guidos; La Perlita; New location of Prima's (10th ave between 2nd & 4th St. N); the fish coop restaurant, Bahia del Caribe; and El Moro.

Great location on the north end of the island!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st extended stay in Cozumel, and our first visit to the north end (we will never stay anywhere else now)...and Cantamar was the BEST!!! It was so much more quiet and enjoyable than an all-inclusive. We loved being close enough to walk to town, and resultant of Lexi's recommendations, we discovered some incredible places to eat! We also rented a jeep for a day...and taxis were typically readily available in front of the condo for trips into town. Lexi's recommendations on restaurants were spot-on, and the condo location is perfect. Snorkeling right outside the condo is wonderful...easy in & out of the water. We can't say enough positive things about the condo...but the ground floor / poolside level was fantastic!!!..and our stay was great!! Can't wait to go back!!!
