Casa Emila (8120) - Ground Floor Location, Diving Pier
ONE-BEDROOM GEM. WONDERFUL LOCATION. ONE GREAT VACATION
Beyond the gated entrance into Residencias Reef, tucked inside a private oceanfront oasis, is your home away from home, Casa Emila. This grand ground-level unit has a patio that opens up to the manicured lawn and gardens, meandering pathways, and beautiful palm trees, adding to the ambiance of this private community.
The condo has been beautifully decorated from floor to ceiling. Up to four lucky vacationers can stay in this stunning condo—there’s a king-sized bed in the master suite and a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room.
The bathroom is exquisite too—plenty of modern touches, beautiful tile work in the walk-in shower, a double-sink vanity, and large mirrors make you feel just a little spoiled.
Each room is freshly painted in inviting and warm colors of Mexico with bright yellow and light moss green complementing the beauty of the turquoise Caribbean Sea just outside your patio door.
The décor of the open floor plan of the kitchen and living space is comfortable and unpretentious with interesting artwork, sand-colored floor tiles, curved granite countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen.
From the bright and comfortable living room, you can slide open those big glass doors and walk out onto your private patios, which makes a great spot to take in the view of the beautiful community amenities.
There are plenty of other special touches your host has included, including Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a safe, and even a washer and dryer to keep those fun tropical clothes you brought along clean and fresh.
Casa Emila is housed within Residencias Reef, one of the most luxurious and well-maintained condominium complexes on the island. Your condo puts you just steps away from the private beach, where the sand is as white as the sea is blue. There are two freshwater pools that you are invited to use, and they are kept heated year-round. You’ll also have full use of the hot tub, SCUBA and snorkeling gear rinse tank, outdoor shower, and cozy palapas where you can enjoy a cold beverage in the shade.
You may never want to step a foot outside this private oasis, but if you do, downtown Cozumel is a quick 15-minute drive away. The oceanfront promenade has a vitality that is palpable—scores of tourists walk along the strip to visit the shops, restaurants, bars, duty-free stores, and local vendors at all hours of the day and night.
The waterfront is also where you will find a huge number of guides for SCUBA and snorkeling trips, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing, jet skiing and more. You can also catch the ferry with regular daily trips to and from Playa del Carmen.
There’s only one place to stay and play on your next vacation: Casa Emila.

Our condo was larger than I thought from the pictures, which is always a nice beginning to your trip! It was comfortably furnished with easy access to the pools and beach, right into the jungle courtyard. We really liked our location which is a bit away from town, you must have a rental car or pay $20.00 per taxi ride, ends up to cost more than a rental, FYI. Cozumel is a very inviting Island, just beautiful. Our only complaint regarding the condo were the beds, they really need to be
replaced, especially the sofa sleeper, I read an earlier review with the same complaint, so it would be great if the owner would take note. Residencias is an overall nice place!
Thank you for your feedback Monica! The sleeper sofa this guest is referring to was an extra love-seat sofa in the bedroom. That is gone now. The actual sleeper sofa in the living room is brand new!

About as close as you can get to paradise in every sense of the word. Residencias Reef is the best local on the island with it being quiet, secluded, steps from beach/pools/ocean/pier, etc. Casa Emila is a great place to start and end your day. All the comforts of home and a very comfortable bed to boot. Wireless internet works fast and on the ground floor so you are steps from it all. Go and you'll be coming back many times over. Rent a car for sure so you can see all the island has to offer. Go to money bar on Fri/Sat night at 530 for happy hour and the best band in Mexico. Get a group of 6-12 and dial up Tigers adventures for a beach tour via his boat, it will be highlight of your trip. Enjoy... Visit was the week of 7/15/11.

was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental
the condo was spotless and very spacious the pictures do not do it justice.
we love it there and hope to enjoy many more vacations at Resedencias Reef.
everyone was so helpful, quiet surroundings and the condo is very well equiped, made most of our meals there.
we loved the fact that you can walk right off patio to both pools and the beautiful ocean.
we will definitely recommend the property to our friends and family, your service was great and we truly had a wonderful vacation.
we would recommend renting a car to enable better access to grocery stores and shopping.
we really did "Enjoy Cozumel" Glen and Betty

My husband and I stayed at this property with our 2 children for 1 week. This property worked very well as a home base for us for the week. The condo was extremely clean, very quiet, and well appointed with all the necessary amenities. The only feedback I have for the property owners is that they should invest in a new sleeper sofa if they are going to advertise it as "sleeps 4." It is not an appropriate bed for anyone over the age of 10. The pools and the property grounds were immaculate, however the area from the palapas to the shore were not cleaned or raked during our time there. It would have been nice to spend our time at this beach with instead of walking down to San Francisco beach where it is raked and cleaned. A car is a must if you are staying at this property for the week. We used our jeep daily to go to the grocery store, shopping and other excursions. In short, this is a great property for couples seeking quiet, or families traveling with very young children.

We loved staying in the Condo at Residencias Reef. We were looking for a quite place to stay without the college kids and loud partying and that's what we found. We were able to do our grocery shopping in town and enjoy our time at the condo to relax, snorkel and read.
