OH MY, MY, MY SHARONA
For a vacation that hits all the right notes, choose Casa Sharona, a lovely one-bedroom condo in one of the most exclusive and luxurious beachfront communities in Cozumel.
Casa Sharona is a sight to behold--modern and contemporary, which is not something you often stumble upon in Riviera Maya. This unit sits on the first floor of Residencias Reef with an impressive walk-out patio that offers unbelievable views of the immaculate green grounds and towering palm trees that line the beach. This incredible space is adorned by rich wooden beams that provide both shade and privacy, a built-in bench from which you can watch the sunset, and even a sunken soaking tub where you can relax after a fabulous day in paradise.
Your home away from home sleeps three: the master suite comes furnished with a king-sized bed thoughtful décor; there’s also a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room to accommodate an additional guest. The bathroom is big and beautiful, with a double-sink vanity, large mirror, and colorful tile.
The open-concept living and dining room provides unobscured sight lines to the kitchen, so the chef can multi-task—chopping, sautéing, and cooking while being part of the conversation. Appliances of every shape and size have been provided, and the granite countertops gives you all the room you need to flex your culinary muscle.
Adjourn to the living or dining room (or even that awesome deck) to enjoy the fruits of your labor—both spaces are modern and tastefully appointed with dark wooden furniture, oversized sand-colored floor tiles and colorful artwork.
To help you feel even more at home, your hosts have also included Wi-Fi, free phone calls to the U.S. and Canada, satellite TVs in both the living and bedroom areas, secure parking, an in-room safe, and an intercom system.
And this will be music to your ears: Casa Sharona is located on a famed stretch of white-sand beach, where you can walk for miles along the turquoise ocean, participate in an endless array of water sports and activities, and enjoy a bite or a sip at one of several restaurants and bars along the way. But don’t just take it from us. TripAdvisor dropped in, and this is what they had to say:
“Beautiful beach. Nice bar area and gorgeous swimming pool (very clean). The staff were very friendly. Food and beverages were cheap and good. Excellent frozen margaritas and authentic chips/salsa.” High praise, indeed!
So let’s talk about that fantastic and famous beach. It’s just a few steps down the charming paved pathway. From here you can snorkel right off the shore or embark on a SCUBA diving adventure—they’ll happily pick you up at the nearby dock.
You can do a little body surfing in the warm water and gentle swells that lap the beach or maybe start up a game of Frisbee. Feeling adventurous? Take a quick stroll down the beach to discover some fantastic restaurants and bars (some even deliver).
The great outdoors don't end there. As a guest at Residencias Reef, you are invited to make full use of two freshwater pools, open-air Jacuzzi, SCUBA and snorkeling gear rinse tank, and outdoor shower.
Pull up a lounge chair on the beach and by the pool, or plop down beneath a shady palapa when you want a break from the sun. You even have access to the rooftop observation deck, which gives you breathtaking vistas of the entire community and, of course, the sparkling waters of the Caribbean.
When you’re up for a night out, head to downtown Cozumel, an easy ten- to 15-minute drive away is downtown Cozumel. Stroll 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. You can watch the cruise ships dock or the ferry boats come in on the promenade—and if you want to reserve a SCUBA or glass-bottom boat snorkeling tour, you’ll find a provider on virtually every street.
For a tropical vacation that strikes all the right chords, make it your (your, your) Sharona in Cozumel.
