“Excellent location, nice, quiet residential neighborhood, convenient to supermarkets, department stores, beaches”
Reviewed January 2, 2011 for a stay in December 2010

The general location is great, in the best residential area of San Miguel. It was two blocks to the Mega Mart and Chedurai stores, one block to the shoreline road that leads for about 10 blocks to the ferry, downtown and the zocalo (Centro). Car or moped rentals nearby, too. Also on the south side of the city of San Miguel to get to the beaches and hotels to the south, along the shoreline road.

We liked the setup of the two rooms we rented for our family - one with twin beds for my son and I, and another with a queen bed for my daughter. There was a kitchenette-living room inbetween the two bed rooms, each of which had their own toilet facilities with shower stalls.

Dennis Anderson, the owner, did a good job designing the Casa, supervising the construction and decorating. It is clean and fairly new, in good condition. He provided many helpful tips about restaurants, shopping, etc., drove my son to a laundry and interpreted for him, drove my daughter to the airport.

Suggestions might be to provide written instructions to guests about use of the toilets, about drinking water (big 10 gallon jugs of pure water available daily) and other essentials. The too-hot heavy weight quilts that doubled as bedspreads could have been supplemented with light weight blankets as alternatives. Lack of hot water for morning showers was a problem. Overall these were minor things.

Dennis also wants half of the rental cost in cash and in advance, via Pay Pal, with the balance due in cash (either pesos or US dollars) upon arrival. That important point could be emphasized more in communicating with guests during discussions of the rental. It's not a problem if you know it in advance and also know that local ATM machines have a 5,000 or 6,000 peso limit as to how much money per day you can withdraw.

“Good location, well-kept, reasonable price - very pleasant!”
Reviewed January 2, 2011 for a stay in December 2010

I found Casa Deja Blue online after exhausting my options for an affordable Christmas week rental in Cozumel. Dennis was very responsive and offered us a great rate for 10 days during the high season, for a 2 bedroom unit with full kitchen. The kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans, blender, toaster, and other wares. It was also great having 2 bathrooms between the 3 of us. The pool is right outside the front door and there are plenty of chairs to lounge in. Only six potential units make this a cozy place, where you can chat with other guests around the pool, or just coming and going. Casa Deja Blue is only a couple of blocks from the big Chedraui supermarket, which itself is only a block or so from the brand new MegaMart. But it's away from the noisy downtown, which is about a 15 minute walk away. There is some street traffic noise, so if you need total peace and quiet you won't get it, but you get used to it after awhile. Cars go by every few minutes and the occasional garbage truck or car stereo music will wake you. If you've spent any time in a Mexican town you come to expect and accept some of this. Plenty of free street parking for scooters or cars at Casa Deja Blue, by the way.

As for nearby beaches, you can walk a couple blocks to the waterfront and go in through the hotels to use their beaches, as long as you buy a drink or lunch or something from them. (We always went around lunchtime and made an afternoon of it.) We had a rental car and spent most of our beach time down the coast at the Fiesta Americana beach, or the Money Bar beach just a couple hundred yards north of that, where the snorkeling is excellent.

The only cons are:

- Hot shower water is limited, but this seems common in Mexico.

- the bigger teflon pans are scratched to bits and should be replaced; teflon has been found not desirable to cook with even intact (check the research), but ingesting bits of torn teflon is even more of a health concern.

-Most important: Dennis should make more prominent, or repeat a couple times, the policy of the balance payment "at the door." When he says at the door, he means it (in CASH). This had been mentioned in the body of an earlier email but I thought it was more a figure of speech than a literal request. After getting off the ferry, and flying before that, we were a little loopy, it was late, and we certainly didn't have $700 US cash on us, or the equivalent in pesos. We expected that we'd be able to get to an ATM in the morning and bring it back to him. (Which is what we ended up doing and he was cool about it, but this does not mean that he liked it.) The reason for up front payment is that guests have left without paying the balance and some owners have really gotten burned.

Don't forget, there is a limit to how much you can withdraw each day from an ATM, so take that into account when getting the balance. We had to withdraw from 2 accounts to get enough pesos to pay it.

All in all, a good deal if you like small, casual places, want to do your own thing, and don't expect resort treatment or setting. Dennis is a nice guy who seems a bit brusque at first but as you talk more to him you see he's just one of those straightforward, direct kind of fellows. He has lived in Cozumel for 25 years, designed and built his own house and the rental units next door, so he has a lot of care and time into this place. He gave me a ride to the airport and had plenty of great suggestions for restaurants and neighborhood amenities, and that's about all we needed! Thanks Dennis. (~ Kyle Morrison, Seattle)
