Description

Le logement

Cozumel offers many options to its visitors, but nothing compared to this private residence already famous among the islanders for its façade, distinctive decoration and its main gate with mirrors that originated its popular name of “La Casa de los Espejos” or “The House of Mirrors”. Located downtown only 200 yards from the sea, it allows you to experience the way natives live, the real Mexican cuisine and the music and sounds that permeate the atmosphere every day and night.
The house was built in 1989 by Brazilian architect Douglas Cerqueira Gonçalves, who lived on the island for a few years and actually in the house while building it, having therefore the time to detail everything to a “state of the art” level. The property is just two small blocks away from the sea and from Punta Langosta, the main international pier in town and just three minute away from the town hall and the main square; also walking distance to the bars, restaurants, supermarkets and shopping strip.
The property consists of a beautiful tropical garden with pool and waterfall. It has two unique living spaces, a large two story house at the far end of the property and a totally independent bungalow in the pool area. Each of the three rooms has its own private bathroom and terrace, is fully air conditioned, has ceiling fans, TV/DVD/Sky TV, variety of pillows and high quality cotton linens. You can enjoy the large adjoining terrace to sunbath, morning coffee or afternoon Margaritas.
The garden and pool deserve a special mention, there’s no other garden in Cozumel that offers such a unique atmosphere; it is basically a palm garden with different palm trees, air plants, bromeliad, orchids and other unique plants that can’t be easily found elsewhere in town, combined with beautiful Mayan stone steles and various wood, stone and metal modern sculptures. There are also large trees that create shaded areas for private ambiances. The swimming pool is composed by two tanks, the large one with an extraordinary venetian tile sculpture representing the sacred Mayan serpent and a cascade that falls into the second tank where children or non swimmers can enjoy the fresh water. In case of need there’s also a wheel chair ramp.
Cozumel:
Cozumel is known worldwide for its crystal clear waters and rich underwater reefs and wildlife, but it also has superb white sand beaches and a unique ecosystem full of wetlands and lagoons where you can see a large number of protected species both endemic and migratory. The geographical position of the island together with its surface and underwater wealth couldn’t be ignored by the ancient astrologists and priests who chose it to erect the sanctuary to Ix-Chel, the most important female deity of the Mayan pantheon, goddess of the loom, the earth and fertility, making of Cozumel the most important pilgrimage destination for over a thousand years.
Cozumel has an heterogeneous and diverse community formed by the original locals and people from all over Mexico, the U.S., Canada, several European countries and also from Central and South America, all contributing with their own heritage and best efforts and resources to improve the tourist, human and cultural offer to place the island as one of the most attractive destinations in the Mexican Caribbean.
In 1956, Mexican film director René Cardona shot the movie Un Mundo Nuevo under the waters of Cozumel at what is now known as “Cardona Reef”. In 1957, the film was translated into English and broadcasted over the American television as A New World. Cardona’s movie is often confused with Jacque Yves Cousteau’s 1956 documentary Monde du Silence, but Cousteau’s film was shot entirely in the Eastern Hemisphere, therefore it was Cardona’s film that brought the crystal waters of Cozumel to the attention of the American divers. Cousteau did not visit the island for the first time until the late 1960’s, years after Cozumel’s dive industry was well established. .

The pictures do not do it justice!!! The home, pool and garden are even better than in the photos. It's a very big space, very clean and comfortable. The pool is bigger than expected and a nice refreshing place to spend time. Marco was available any time and gave us a lot of tips and tricks for our stay in Cozumel. Great location close to town and easy to get around. Would stay here again and will recommend it to everyone!!

The house is in a great location in town. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. Marco is a very good host and communicator. He answers questions within minutes. The house needs a bit of updating (new air conditioners) and some comfortable seating. The biggest issue was the noise: crowing roosters and barking dogs. Did not get a full nights sleep the entire time there.

As two young professional couples, Marco's place was all that we could hope for in an upscale house rental. The house itself was large and beautifully decorated with a variety of charming seating spaces. The kitchen was fully equipped and the pool area was well-tended. The property is green and airy. We enjoyed the numerous balconies and separate garden areas.

Marco has been a fantastic host from the time we first made contact to the day we left Cozumel. The house is perfectly located, the pictures you see on the site are all very accurate and we enjoyed relaxing in the hamacs. One of the best thing about this rental is that Marco is a few minutes away and anytime we had a question or needed a recommendation, Marco was there to assist. We really enjoyed our time here and we will come back.

Marco is an EXCELLENT host! The communication prior to the arrival was beyond what we could have imagined, and once we got there it was even better. Marco waited for us and had refreshments ready to go as well as fresh cut fruits and freshly made guacamole. He then gave us a ton of information regarding the island (right of ways laws, places to eat, places to go, things to see, etc.) The house is in an excellent location and very well stocked (fresh linens, fresh towels, clean everything) and the towels and linens were changed every couple of days too. There was nothing that we needed that was missing from the house. The commodities are all very nice as well and the decorations are really cool. The hammocks....are amazing and if you enjoy laying in one there are two to pick from and you can easily fall asleep. The yard/pool area is really really cool and the pool is very clean as well. There are a ton of little lizards running around the yard, and one day we even spotted a turtle crossing from one side of the yard to the other! There are papaya trees in the yard, coconut trees, and other trees that make it a very very tropical place. I could keep going about Marco and his house but I will leave it at this: The house is incredible, and Marco is and incredible person as well, and he has a ton of knowledge about Cozumel and the surrounding area too. We had come to Cozumel for the Ironman race and are looking forward to the next time we can visit again and stay at Marco's place and see him again!

From the moment I requested to stay in Marco's House of Mirrors I knew the stay would be amazing! Marco's communication was better than any I have experienced on AirBnB. He made sure we knew everything about the house and the island moths before we arrived. On our arrival, Marco welcomed us with fresh fruit, drinks, and the best guacamole we have ever had! He took the time to show us the house and to highlight some of the best eating houses and places of interest... Not the touristy ones but the places only locals know about. The house itself is a labour of love. You can see the time and effort Marco has put into it to make it what it is. From its unique building materials to the amazing pool, you'll not find anything else like it. The garden is immaculate and home to a cute turtle family who will happily come and snack on fruit out of your hand. The service provides my Marco and his team was amazing! We stayed for 8 nights and the house, pool and garden were serviced twice. Marco also brought us some surprises to have for dinner! It was amazing! If you want to stay on Cozumel but don't want the sterile environment and want to experience island life in a homely and comfortable setting while still being around locals but close to the action, then the House of Mirrors is the place to stay! If I could give Marco more than 5 stars, I would!!

I have worked as a businessman in Europe for 33 years and now retired in this beautiful island where I had built this house in 1989. Living in Cozumel is a privilege and though I intend to go back to "the road", for the time being I'm enjoying the healthy living in the island and I'm quite excited about putting in practice my experience as a world traveller and offer my guests a great stay in Cozumel and the Yucatan peninsula.
