My wife and I are a professional couple in our lower 50s. We are church pastors and also run an online website design business for our living. We have the privilege of snowbirding this coming February and maybe March, hopefully arriving February 3rd and leaving march 14th. We are looking for a beautiful, luxurious home to rent in a nice and safe area of Cozumel. We have references from the homes we rented for the last three Februarys in Florida but we are looking for something more tropical and possibly less expensive.
We are looking for a beautiful 1200 - 2600 sqft 1 or 2+ bedroom furnished house in a very nice area, preferably within a few miles of the ocean at most. If all goes well we will be bringing our small dog, who is perfectly behaved, and we are confident enough of this that we would leave a large refundable pet deposit. We do need consistent fast internet for our vonage phone line as well as doing website maintenance. Air conditioning is probably needed as well.
We have never visited Cozumel but have heard wonderful things about it and about the great expat community. I am open to any and all suggestions, including the typical budget for what we are hoping to rent, and the best way to find it. Thank you!
Update: I have read around the site here a bit more and it looks like our budget of $500 a week for a nice furnished long term house is going to be inadequate. Any thoughts?
