About the property

1 Bedroom/1 Bath, Sleeps 2 Adults and 1-2 children, Beach, Pool, Jacuzzi

Bienvenidos a Cozumel, the pristine Caribbean island where the scenery is impeccable, the scuba-diving is second to none, and the outstanding times are a dime a dozen.

During your stay, you might find yourself enjoying sparkling sunsets from Residencias' private beach, from the comfy chairs on your balcony, or from the exclusive rooftop patio, all of which this one bedroom, one bath unit, provides you access.

Located on San Francisco beach, Residencias Reef consists of four condo complexes that surround two heated pools.

Our unit, 8240, rests on the second floor terrace that overlooks the pool and beach, pointing directly at the spot where the sun sets.

8240 is fully furnished and ready for you to stay comfortably as long as your heart desires.

There are a few beach club restaurants within walking distance of the condo, although they tend to close up shop once the cruise ship crowds head out in the afternoons.

For this reason, most renters prefer to stock up on groceries upon arrival, or have the delivery service shop for them! The grocery stores on the island have outstanding produce, fresh fish and meat, and a wide variety of drink options, including wine, alcohol, beer, and, of course, tequila.

The following amenities are provided with your rental:

• Security Gated Community

• Large Master Bedroom with King Size Bed & Luxurious Cotton Sheets

• Private Sandy Beach for lounging, snorkeling, or swimming

• Stainless Steel Appliances, Granite Countertops, and Kitchen Appliances (coffee pot, microwave, toaster etc…)

About Susan Davenport

After shivering away for sixty plus winters in the Rocky Mountains, I had enough of the snow and cold weather. A quick remedy to the winter blues was a Caribbean condo; makes sense, right? Attracted to the temperate weather and the ocean teeming with colorful fish and coral, I knew Cozumel was the only place that I wanted to be.

Susan Davenport purchased this condo in 2013

Why Susan Davenport chose Quintana Roo

Having spent the better part of a decade visiting Cozumel, I have had the chance to stay at many different resorts, condos, and hotels. Residencias Reef is simply the best. It has all the best Cozumel has to offer, with none of the headache, hype, or drunken hysteria of other touristy destinations in Mexico.

What makes this condo unique

Private beach, exclusive rooftop patios - perfect for watching sunsets, two heated pools that provide enough pool space for many guests, a friendly community of residents and travelers.

Resort style gated community.

Private balcony with view of beach, ocean and perfect sunsets.

Gorgeous property. Every amenity!

  • 5 of 5

This is THE place to relax and rejuvenate. The patio overlooks impeccable lush grounds, and a beautiful pool with the ocean just beyond. It's easy to stay "home" and just soak up the environment.

All amenities make the house comfortable and welcoming. This is a no hassle condo whose owners have thought of everything their guests might need. I had a fantastic vacation here and highly recommend this special place.

Best Place in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in 8240 for 8 days in July of 2017. Booking was easy and Susan really goes out of her way to answer any questions. She even recommended renting a car at ISIS and that too worked out great. Residencias Reef is a beautiful place. The guards at the gate would great us with a wave and "Hola" every time we drove in or out. The grounds were constantly being manicured and the pools were sparkling clean. We loved seeing the iguanas roaming the grounds. The beach areas is beautiful and not crowded. We decided to try snorkeling and found that we saw more from the Residencias Reef beach than we did on a boat snorkel trip. Secrets is right next door and it was a little confusing whether we could walk their beach. There is a sign saying Secrets Guests Only, but nobody ever stopped us. They did charge us $2 per person to be picked up by our snorkel boat at the pier. The guy that charged us probably just pocketed the money, but we it was worth it. Bring water shoes!! You will need them.

The condo is in excellent shape. The A/C units worked very well, the kitchen is well equipped, the kind size bed was comfortable and the patio had a great view. Susan has plenty of towels including beach towels. There is a 5 gallon Cristol water dispenser with extra bottles near the door. The house keeper came about mid-stay and did a nice job cleaning the condo.

We rented a car and drove around the island. I recommend going to the other side. The east side is almost untouched with lots of beautiful spots to stop. We ate at Coconuts which is just a small place on top of a hill. We also recommend these places to eat: Kondesa is very nice but a little pricey and humid outside. La Choza has great food with fans for almost every table. Rolandi is Italian and has the best sunset view of any place we went. Highly recommend them. Money Bar has a great sunset with a wide menu selection including American food. Albertos on the beach is good food right on the beach, but the band was a little loud. Crazy King Burritos is a really small but fantastic burrito place. The service comes from the owner who is a great (and funny).

We have been on many cruises to Cozumel but staying at Residencias Reef 8240 was much, much better. Cozumel has a lot more to offer than what you can do in one day.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Susan's lovely condo from June 19-26. Susan was super responsive throughout the entire planning process. She even provided a reference of a woman who went shopping for groceries for us before we arrived.

We loved the place from the moment we walked in. The condo was clean and tidy. The view from the balcony was perfect, you can enjoy the sunset there or on the roof.

Luciana came and did a cleaning midway through our trip which included changing the sheets, any left over dishes, and sweeping the floor.

The guards were very nice and accommodating. We had rented a jeep for the week, and our taxi to the airport came before the jeep pick up and the guards were gracious enough to pass the key along to them when they arrived.

We definitely plan to return to Susan's condo. Everyone who lives/rents in Reef is so nice. Thank you for letting us stay!!

P.S. Go to El Moro!!!! Best food on the island.

Great location & well equipped condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The condo had a nice view from the porch. Comfortable bed and couch. We have stayed at the Residencias before and know that ants are a problem. They were not too problematic, just an annoyance. This has happened at the other condos.

We did follow a suggestion in the binder, Wet Wendy's. We have visited the island many times and had not been there. We went and although a little pricey for the specialty drinks a fun experience and great treat on a hot day!

Lovely Condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this condo during spring break 2017. It was gorgeous, clean, and well located. We enjoyed the quiet and safe community with a stunning beach steps from the unit. I have pretty high standards, and it met them on every level. The only hesitation I have in returning to this unit and Cozumel in general is: You can't flush toilet paper. You have to throw it in the trash because their septic system can't handle the growing population.

Owner's Response: We are glad that our condo met your high standards on every level. We strive to be the best for gorgeous, clean, well-located and safe with a super friendly staff, with a bonus of stunning sunsets. As far as not flushing the toilet paper goes, this is a common custom in all of Mexico, South America and much of the world in general. I am sorry that you were surprised by this custom. susan
