A large swimming pool tucked in the corner of the private backyard features oversize Mexican pottery spilling water gently into the pool. A palapa near the pool is a perfect gathering spot for a cup of coffee in the morning or an ice-cold cervesa in the evening. Toss a couple of burgers or steaks on the built-in BBQ and enjoy a hearty meal in the great outdoors. Divers will appreciate the outdoor shower and rinse tank area.
In the entry area is a unique bar and 4 stools, hand carved from gnarled wood. Living room is furnished with rattan sofas and chairs in vivid blue; TV, DVD and stereo are provided for your entertainment pleasure.
Dining room seats 6 at the carved glasstop wood table with matching rustic style chairs with green upholstered cushions. There's a desk in this area; bring your laptop and hook up to the internet and surf the internet or send e-mails to the poor souls back home; you'll also find telephones for free local calls and free calls to the US and Canada.
Quetzal, named for the sacred bird of Mexico, uses a bird theme throughout the house, including the ceramic tile in the kitchen, furnishings and artwork. Full kitchen has all that you need to prepare a complete meal or simple snacks. You'll save a few bucks by doing a couple of meals on your own, but don't miss the opportunity to sample the terrific restaurants on the island!
Two bedrooms are beyond the kitchen. First bedroom has a king size bed (can be split into two twins upon request) and uses the bath located off the hall. Master bedroom has king bed, private bath with tub and shower, phone and views of the palapa area. Casa Quetzal can be reserved with just one bedroom for 2 guests at reduced rates, see below.
Reserve the Quetzal for your special vacation getaway on the tropical island of Cozumel.
Quetzal is located on 40th Ave. and Rosada Salas, about 8 blocks from the oceanfront and central plaza.
