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.

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!

Fantastic condo. Everything was quality

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the condo was high quality. Purified water dispenser with hot and cold water options. Good kitchen supplies with important starters offered and snacks and wine as a welcoming gift. Quality towels and linens. Comfortable furniture inside and on the patio. The best condo we have ever rented in Cozumel and at a reasonable price. The managers Elizabeth and Matt were fantastic. They helped us arrange a private cook and made money saving suggestions of having her cook for 2 nights at a time. Reina is a fantastic cook and so sweet. Great if you don't want to drive into town and just enjoy San Francisco Beach and the pool. Also, if you are a diver you can be picked up at the pier and avoid the long boat ride to the best sites.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Kristy for a week and it was just wonderful. We rent lots of vacation properties, but this one was special.

The property the condo sits on is just gorgeous and so well maintained (we saw gardeners working night and day!) and the 2 heated pools are just perfect for an afternoon dip.

The condo was so well appointed, we didn't lack anything during our stay. Pots and pans were spotless (rare in a rental) and plenty of glassware and utensils. We had soap for the laundry, dishes, dishwasher, saranwrap, spices, oil, you name it. Plus the welcome basket was soooo appreciated!! The bed was ultra comfy, the living room nicely decorated, but the best was the balcony! So glad the owners took out the jacuzzi tub, this gave us more space to spread out and enjoy that wonderful ocean view. And the beach at this property is just gorgeous, plenty of palapas and lounge chairs .

We rented a car during our stay (Rentadora Isis was a smooth transaction) and loved the freedom this gave us. I'd highly recommend it. The grocery stores here are HUGE and have lots of options for cooking. We made almost all meals at the condo and were amazed how cheap food is in Mexico (as compared to Canada).

Renting through Matt and Elizabeth was easy and painless, they answered our questions quickly and made us feel at home immediately. All in all, this condo is amazing value and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a killer view in gorgeous Cozumel.

Lovely property, good spot for a couple

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spot, great beach, beautiful pools and EXTREMELY well managed. Matt and Elizabeth do a super job, are easily available by phone or email and immediately respond to questions and concerns......not that there were any major concerns. The kitchen is well equipped, the view from the deck is beautiful, the bed is comfy, the linens are fine, the housekeeping comes when scheduled. We chose not to rent a car for the whole time we were there, only the first three days. During that time we stocked up on groceries, and toured the island. Once we had no car, the spot was a bit isolated, no nearby dinner restaurants, just a beach club next door for lunch or drinks which closed by sunset. This suits us well...we want peace and quiet and independence with meals. And taxis to town, although expensive, are readily available and certainly cheaper than car rentals with full insurance.

Couldn't have asked for a nicer property

  • 5 of 5

All in all, a great apartment. Furnishings all of the highest quality, and decor, art, useful trinkets, etc., all adding to the feeling of being in a real home rather than a rental property. We had a number of friends staying in other apartments around the complex, but this was by far and away the best apartment that we saw.

Elizabeth and Matt were very responsive all the way through the booking and stay, despite being in vacation themselves. Would thoroughly recommend this property to others.

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!

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.
