Relax by the two-level swimming pool and listen to the gentle sound of water cascading from the small rock fountain into the top level of the pool. Casa Tomas is loaded with the amenities to make your stay more enjoyable. Stretch out on a cushioned lounge chair or enjoy a siesta in a double size hammock under the large palapa roofed patio. Imagine the aroma of steaks or hamburgers or steaks grilling outdoors on the Weber gas grill as you sip a cool drink and enjoy the breeze in a tropical garden with palms, hibiscus, bougainvilleas and a lovely, large shade tree. You'll enjoy it even more knowing that Trip Advisor/FlipKey does not add a booking fee or service fee to our rates.

Interaction with guests
As an owner, I live in another home only about 6 blocks away from Casa Tomas having moved from Texas to Cozumel in 2000. I am available to answer questions about Cozumel (such as favorite restaurants), but there is also a professional property management company with a staff that takes care of giving guests an orientation, providing maid service, maintenance, gardening, pool care, etc. They respond quickly to questions or problems.

The house is comfortable with some many extras... beer and snacks on arrival, a fully equipped kitchen along with an outdoor grill, comfortable furnishings throughout, iPod dock, beach towels, a Vonage phone for free calls to the...

I joined some friends in renting Villa Tomas (upstairs), and we found an AMAZING hideaway located near downtown. The secure villa was 2-BR, 2-bath with full kitchen, dining area and living room, beautifully decorated with everything you'd need including DVD, cable TV and free Wi-Fi! The villa is completely screened to leave everything opened-up and keep the bugs out which...

Never having been to Mexico, we were a little nervous! We took the plunge and thus searched for properties that would be private, tranquil, and safe etc. Casa Topaz met all our expectations and more! Kathleen, the owner, lives on the island and guided us every step of the way from our first inquiry until we were back home. Not...

About the neighbourhood
Casa Tomas (upstairs) and Casa Topaz (downstairs) are located in what is considered by many to be the nicest residential area of Cozumel...Corpus Christi. The property is less than 500 yards from the oceanfront street and the nearest public beach is about 1 mile to the south. One of two major supermarkets in the area is only about 400 yards away while the second one is less than 3 blocks away. There are many restaurants within walking distance, a 6 screen cinema, a new plaza and park area only 3 blocks away and the main square downtown is 1 mile to the north.
Getting around
Many guests enjoy walking as Casa Tomas is in town and so many things (restaurants, shops, even the main square) are within walking distance. For longer distances they may decide to rent a vehicle or take one of the many taxis. Some guests will rent bicycles but we do NOT recommend renting a scooter or motorcycle.

A trip to the other side of the island to visit one of the beach clubs is a wonderful experience and we recommended it. The other side of the island is quite different. There is no electricity, no land line telephones and swimming should only be in safe beach club areas. The eastern side of the island faces the open ocean.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Cozumel (check Cancun rates): 9.7 km
Ferry: Passenger ferry pier: 1.6 km
You may wish to check on airfare rates to both Cozumel and Cancun. To get from Cancun to Cozumel, you can take a flight on the airline Mayair, or take a taxi or bus the 45 miles from the Cancun airport to Playa del Carmen, and then the passenger ferry the 12 miles across the Yucatan Channel to Cozumel Island. If a flight to Cancun is a great deal cheaper, it may be worth the time and energy to fly to Cancun. Generally it takes between 2 and 3 hours to get from the Cancun airport to Cozumel and the cost of a bus or taxi and the ferry. A taxi from the Cancun airport is much more expensive than the airport bus from Cancun to Playa del Carmen. If you fly to Cancun and plan to take the bus/taxi and ferry to get to Cozumel, we recommend you land in Cancun no later than 6:00 pm so you have tim... more
