Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Cozumel - Casa Kristy

1 Bedroom, One large bath, Sleeps 3. Private covered Patio with Ocean view.

Residencias Reef is the premier gated Community on Cozumel.

Four, low rise 3 story buildings nestled around two beautiful heated pools with a white sand private beach. The property is beautifully landscaped and carefully maintained. Ample parking with gated controlled access and 24 hour security.

Cozumel is one of the safest vacation spots anywhere in the world!

The property is immediately adjacent to the 5 star Aura Hotel. Two Heated Pools. Roof Top solarium.

You can ask your own dive company if they have a relationship it pick up at the Aura pier. Rinse tank near the main pool. Small Palapas dot our private beach so you can sun or nap in the shade.

Manicured Lush Grounds : Our guests have told us that 'The Reef' grounds are as beautiful as any Hawaiian resort. They said it, but we agree. Daily the crews are out hand trimming and keeping the grounds in perfect condition. The beach is raked and pristine. The pools are heated, that's important even in Mexico, perfect for sunning. One pool is beach side and the other is close to the center of the property. Great location for beach walking. The main pool features a large palapa and dining tables. There is a small refrigerator at the pool to keep things cold. We supply a large ice chest and a small ice chest for your pool and beach-side use. There are two folding chairs you can use when you head to the beach on the east side of the island.

Beautifully Appointed Condo: Not your standard package furniture, Everything was chosen to create a true contemporary romantic resort experience. Most of the furnishings are hand made in Mexico. The art is all from local artists. We always try to select furnishing that are quality but are made in Mexico to support the people of this beautiful country. Our unit has been recently updated with new paint and bedroom appointments. We regularly replace our sheets, towels and pillows. All linens are great quality.

This great property is professionally managed by CozumelME, Elizabeth and Matt.

Cozumel is our second home. Dan started coming to the island 15 years ago with his guy friends to Dive. We have always loved the island and the wonderful people of Cozumel.

We spend time on each visit to Cozumel (about 4 times a year) exploring all the island has to offer.

Matt & Elizabeth Williamson CozumelME Managers for the Halyburton's purchased this condo in 2005

Why Matt & Elizabeth Williamson CozumelME Managers for the Halyburton's chose Quintana Roo

Cozumel is close to Dallas and we love the beach and the people of Mexico. The Reef may be the very best development on the island. Webhave made some great friends on the island, Its an amazing place.

What makes this condo unique

This great property is Managed by CozumelME, a small local management company. Matt and Elizabeth have lived on the Island since 2010 and pride themselves in guest services. Matt and Elizabeth stayed in Casa Kristy as guests just before they purchased their home in Cozumel. Since then we have shared a great relationship with these owners.

Guestbook comments from the owner

***** ( that is for 5 stars)!!

We stayed at Casa Kristy last summer and we liked it so much that we booked our stay again this summer too. We feel like we have all the amenities that we enjoy in our own home. The colors and the furnishings in the condo are warm and inviting. I insist on staying in a clean and comfortable environment and Casa Kristy delivers!! The owners do not skimp on any of the comforts that you might enjoy in a 5 star resort…..fluffy linens, cozy sheets, and bedding. My family enjoyed the condo so much it was hard to get them off the wifi and the flat screen TV to go outside and enjoy the ocean! I especially love lounging on the comfy teak furniture on the balcony outside while enjoying the magnificent view of the ocean!!

Delightful! We will definitely stay again and I hope it will be soon!

Our new favorite place in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely loved this condo. The owners provided everything in the unit you would possibly need while staying. The furnishings were very nice including the bed and all linens. Good wifi and cable . The owners emailed us during the stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Close to the reefs for diving and a fantastic pool and beach with chairs. We have been to Cozumel many times and this was our favorite place to stay. We will be back to this condo soon!

This condo was beautiful! Fully loaded and stocked beyond expectation! Matt & Elizabeth were super helpful throughout the entire planning and vacation process!! We recommend that you rent a car and take a drive to the east side of the island and go for lunch at Senior Iguan's, we loved the fish fajitas! We also took a drive to Sky Reef for a day of snorkeling and cold beverages; the long island ice tea was amazing!! This place is a must! We loved the option for quiet or just a quick walk beyond the resort you could visit beach bars/activitie centers to amp up the fun!! We would go back in a heart beat! We met some of the nicest most wonderful people at this resort!! Thanks again!

Lovely super clean condo in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect in every way: location, views, furnishings and amenities. The property itself was very quiet and not a lot of guests around so we usually had the beach and pools to ourselves. Definitely a place we would return to in the future!

This condo was beautiful, comfortable, and immaculately cleaned with everything we needed from towels to cooking utensils to movies. The only downside was no easy access to a store or restaurant, you just have to bring everything you want to eat or drink with you. This condo was wonderful though and i would definitely book again!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Scuba Girl for staying with us. We love Cozumel and all it has to offer. Residencias Reef is one of the best on the island. We always let new guests know that the island has lots to see and a rental car gives you easy access to everything.

Casa Kristy was absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Kristy was perfect for our stay in Cozumel! We have traveled here many times and have stayed in both all - inclusive and other condo properties. This property was exactly as described and had everything that anyone would need to enjoy their stay! The condo was very comfortable and was like being at home! The pictures that you see are actually how the property is and the property and the grounds are well maintained!

The manager was quick at responding with any questions that we had before arrival and during our stay.

San Francisco Beach is one of the nicer beaches for longer walks and is one of the reasons we choose this property. Although I haven't done scuba diving in a few years this is also located well for pick up for diving trips. The snorkeling is okay around the pier but might I suggest:

Take a morning trip to town and have breakfast at Jeannie's and then spend time here to do some snorkeling. When you have decided to move on to another spot just head down the road to the Sunset Restaurant and Bar. The snorkeling is even better in my opinion. The Sunset is a great place for afternoon snacks and drinks. If you are looking for another place to snorkel the Money Bar is also a great place---again nice place to grab a bite and a drink.

Renting a car would be suggested if you think you will make frequent trips to town or a lot of excursions around the island. Even though we make several trips to town we think it is more convenient and about the same cost if not less to use taxi service (again depending on how much you plan on venturing away from the property and the length of your stay).

Again I have been visiting Cozumel since 1993 yearly and I highly recommend if you are looking for the perfect condo for your stay this would be it!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that your experience exceeded your expectations. We all work hard to make sure you have a wonderful time. We share your feeling that the property and the beach is amazing. One of the very best on the island. We love Money Bar on the old coast road and Carlos and Charlie's Beach Club is just 1/4 mile south of Residencias Reef and the food is good and the service is great. Breakfast love Jeanies across from MEGA the big grocery store but don't miss Contento Corazon amazing spot near Avenue 5. Keep coming back. Este locación especial y gracias.

Car: recommended

Cozumel is a shining jewel. A friendly island that's large enough to have the services and selection for a traveler but it still maintains its authentic feel. The water and the diving are unmatched.
