Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday condo in Cozumel - Casa Corazón
Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 adults or 6 adults + 4 children)
Welcome to Paradise! Compare our 4,200+ sq.ft. home to any other property and you realize you have found the real deal. This is the very best!
Imagine sitting in a hot tub on the balcony of your penthouse, watching the glorious sunset, sipping a chilled drink with gentle ocean breezes caressing your skin. Ahhhh!!
Next morning, you wake up early, eager for your first dive trip, or your beach chair with a book down at the pool area. You get your gear, head down the elevator and wait at your private boat dock to be picked up. Or you just settle into your lounge chair with a good book and snooze away the day.
Does this sound like the vacation for you? Does having a dive experience where you feel like you're flying across the reef thrill you? Or perhaps you want to travel with a large group and not feel like you're on top of each other? Desire a family reunion where you are all comfortable?
If so, come stay at Casa Corazón (House of the Heart), a spacious, diver/family-friendly penthouse where you will find the finest drift diving in the world! It doesn't get any better than this!
Casa Corazón is the penthouse (8th floor) in the gorgeous condominium building right across the street from City Hall. Your views are breathtaking facing the west, the south and across the island as well!
You are 3 blocks from downtown San Miguel (Cozumel), a 2-minute walk to the shops along the ocean, and yet you are far enough away from the tourist bustle to enjoy the crystal-clear waters and quiet.
Unprecedented luxury in a building built to the highest quality standards. To quote one of our recent tenants, 'The Casa exceeded our expectations which rarely ever happens.'
Your secure elevator opens right at the door of your Casa. Open your door, and the first thing that greets you is a breath-taking view across the Caribbean Ocean to Playa del Carmen and Xcaret through the 8-foot high floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. All windows and sliding glass doors have screens, and there are tropical wood ceiling fans in every room should you prefer gentle breezes and the sound of the waves to air-conditioning.
As you enter the Great Room, you see custom ceramic tile floors, striking carved wood, rattan, and leather furniture, comfortable sofas and chairs, lots of reading lights, a satellite-TV, DVD/CD, and stereo with surround sound. Casa Corazón's 4212 sq ft gives ample room for everyone to find a special nook or sufficient room to socialize and party. It's perfect for large groups of friends or family gatherings.
The dining table seats 10 comfortably. There is a wine refrigerator, bar stools, a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel LG appliances and various small appliances.
Four expansive bedroom suites each have their own private baths and balconies (check out the photos!). The Casa sleeps 8 people easily — no tripping over each other and plenty of privacy. One bedroom is even set up as an office if you want to work a little while you play. There is also a beautiful powder room just inside the front door.
Wireless high-speed DSL is available so bring your laptop! FREE calls to USA or Canada.
On the 800+ sq ft. oceanfront veranda is a hot tub (seats 6 to 8), chaise lounges, a table with 4 chairs and more. The veranda wraps around the south side of the building so you have a panoramic view.
Your elevator also takes you to the basement/garage, directly opposite the entrance to the beach and the tri-level pool. Tables with umbrellas and chairs, chaise lounges, palapas are on the clean white sand beach and by the pool.
There is a boat dock and dive rinse tanks; you can be picked up by any dive or tour outfit or scuba/snorkel right off your private beach. A secure storage locker is in the basement, so you don't have to cart your heavy wet gear up and down.
Across the street is Chedraui (a combination WalMart, Safeway, and Walgreen's), the local Cineplex and an Internet cafe if you left your laptop behind.
If you don't feel like cooking, there are many fine restaurants within walking distance or a short cab ride away. Many local restaurants will deliver to the penthouse, or if you wish, we can refer you to a chef who can prepare your meals for you.
If you want authentic local food, stroll down any of San Miguel's side streets or go to the Mercado. The people are all delightful and friendly. The culture is warm and inviting. It is safe here!!!
Your multilingual, full-time American management and concierge service provides daily maid service and can arrange for any number of activities – day trips to Xcaret, renting a scooter or car or even babysitters.
By the way, Cozumel is listed in travel magazines and by travel agents as one of the safest places to vacation in the world!!! This still applies now in 2013.

Why Kathryn Baker chose Cozumel
Cozumel is listed by almost every travel agency and magazine as the safest or one of the safest places to vacation in the world. Cozumel remains unchanged, but more beautiful than ever. The infrastructure is modern without losing the island feel. Services are wide ranging but professionally handled and there seems to be many things to do for everyone.
What makes this condo unique
The Penthouse is the perfect place to watch the sun set the sky ablaze with color as it goes down or the moonrise shed its soft light on the waves just off your balcony. You can watch the cruise ships arrive in the morning and leave in the evening while you are eating or reading or perhaps sitting in the hot tub.
Everyone is amazed by the comfort but coziness of the Penthouse. It is an experience as much as a place to stay. Even one of our friends who was born and raised on the island gets distracted by the view and can't seem to stop taking pictures when he visits!
In January of 2012, we just opened an EagleRider Harley-Davidson motorcycle rental franchise, so if you are interested in seeing the island on two wheels (the best way to do it!), let us know and you'll get a special 'Penthouse' discount!
Guestbook comments from the manager
6-15-08My family has visited the El Cantil penthouse two years in a row now. From the convenience of a nonstop elevator ride, to the breathtaking view when the doors open, to the great service staff, and the spacious quarters, we have enjoyed every minute of our visits. The penthouse is spacious, with up to 4 bedrooms, and a large central living area and kitchen. Furnishings are elegant, yet comfortable. The staff at the El Cantil are constantly available and welcoming. The location is perfect. Right across the street from a large market, and walking distance to everything downtown, yet far enough away from the hustle bustle to make it private and quiet. The pool area is quiet and secluded, with plenty of chairs and or cabanas for those who want to stay in the shade. The grounds are maintained meticulously.I recommended this unit to friends who were traveling to Cozumel, who have done extensive traveling themselves, and they said it was the nicest place they’d ever stayed at and couldn’t wait to return. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The website is helpful, but if you can’t find the answer there, Allan can usually provide one. He is responsive and gracious. Just knowing that the penthouse is consistently nice and enjoyable is a great draw! I would not hesitate to recommend it to even the pickiest travelers!Diane Jensen
