Situated in the gated and gorgeous Residencias Reef community, Casa Julie is the ideal spot for those who prefer a little seclusion, a lot of elegance, and every modern convenience from a seaside vacation in the incomparable Mayan Riviera.
Among the many standout features of Casa Julie is its wide and long terrace, complete with comfortable lounge chairs, dining tables, and ocean views that just won’t quit. To supplement the soft ocean breezes, and outdoor ceiling fan is also provided, so you can spend hours on the balcony without overheating.
Inside, you'll be impressed by the sleek, sophisticated, and inviting décor, with splashes of soft yellow and cream-colored tiled floors, comfortable couches, a superb dining room with seating for six, and a fantastic breakfast bar for quick and casual meals.
The living area has a superbly comfortable sofa as well as a few recliners, so you can kick back and relax. There’s also a flat-screen TV with an extensive cable lineup, including plenty of English-language channels. Wi-Fi is available throughout the home, so you can check in with family, work, and friends. Your hosts have also include Vonage phone service, so any calls to the U.S. or Canada are completely free.
The fantastic second-floor terrace, just beyond the sliding glass doors, makes this space particularly scenic and versatile. And although you are in an especially safe, gated community with round-the-clock security guards, an in-room safe is provided to ensure peace of mind.
The kitchen boasts modern stainless-steel appliances (including a dishwasher and oven) plus all the smaller but necessary gadgets like a coffee pot, microwave and blender. The open-concept design means the chef can be part of the conversation while preparing home-made feasts utilizing the freshest local ingredients. The countertops and cabinetry and full supply of all cook and dishware will make you feel right at home, and perhaps inspire you to whip up your own Mexican-inspired dishes.
This one-bedroom unit has a master suite complete with king-sized bed, an ensuite that’s modern and lovely, and fantastic views. It too is masterfully decorated and serves as a wonderful place to retire after a full day of fun in the sun.
When you’re ready to do more than just enjoy the view of the amenities from afar, head out for a hands-on experience of the great outdoors. Homeowners have taken great steps to ensure that this property is spectacularly maintained, and it’s clear that they have succeeded. The lawn and gardens are sculpted and manicured, and each of the two freshwater pools are sparkling clean.
Want more? Because there is. Like the outdoor Jacuzzi, SCUBA and snorkeling gear rinse tank, an outdoor shower, palapas and palm trees by the dozen. You even have access to the rooftop observation deck, which gives you breathtaking vistas of the entire community and, of course, the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.
A few steps away is the famed white-sand beach and multi-hued blue waters of the Caribbean, and you are welcome to enjoy all the amenities. You can take off on a SCUBA or snorkeling adventure—they’ll even pick you up at the nearby dock—or you can just body surf in the warm water and gentle swells that lap the beach. There are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat (some even deliver) or a cold drink.
Approximately 15 minutes away is downtown Cozumel, where you can walk along the oceanfront promenade for a bit of shopping or sightseeing. Restaurants, bars and vendors selling everything from homemade tacos to hand-crafted fabrics line the promenade, as well as duty-free stores and nice boutiques.
It’s hard to believe you can be on one of the most famed and exotic locations in the Caribbean and yet enjoy complete seclusion. But that’s what makes Casa Julie stand out—and makes it an outstanding choice.
