About Sarah Rodriguez


I'm Sarah Rodriguez. My husband Bob and I bought the raw land where Casa Colonial is located in 1997 and we designed and built Casa Colonial from the ground up (with completion in 2000). Bob has been in the development business since the early 80's. He used his experience in designing upscale specialty retail centers in the USA to create a truly unique concept on Cozumel. Together we created an oasis in the heart of San Miguel which represents Mexican Colonial style with it's vibrant colors and character.

Since we lived here full time and had a North American's perspective, we had a pretty good idea of what kinds of features and amenities a discriminating traveler would want in a vacation rental. And we made sure to deliver these features and amenities with a unique Mexican flair!

We hope that you will give us the opportunity of showing you our special brand of hospitality!

Sarah Rodriguez purchased this villa in 1997

Why Sarah Rodriguez chose Colonia 10 De Abril

Casa Colonial is unlike any other vacation rental on Cozumel. Our specialized theme immerses you with elements of Mexican Colonial style. You didn't travel all the way to Cozumel just to stay in a generic "hotel"!

Casa Colonial is an oasis in the heart of San Miguel Cozumel!

What makes this villa unique

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. We believe that the pictures of Casa Colonial tell the story best. But even the pictures can not capture the depth and feel of Casa Colonial. For that you will just have to experience it in person!

Great place to stay in Cozumel!

  • 5 of 5

Close enough to get to anything we wanted, private excursions everyday, and away from the hustle, bustle, and maddening crowds when we wanted. Very attentive owner and property manager! Total package!

Hidden oasis

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property in town. Unit was well equipped and included daily maid service. Alex, the manager, was on site to greet us and responsive to all requests. We also met Sarah, the owner and she is great too! We were a party of 4 (1 couple and 2 singles), so we used the air bed downstairs for 1 of the singles and really appreciated having the two in room bathrooms plus the half bath downstairs. Kitchen was small, but well equipped and we enjoyed a few meals in the unit. Master bed was really comfortable. As for Cozumel, we love it and enjoyed scuba diving, riding scooters around the island, bicycling, running and swimming. The courtyard is really lovely and home to at least 10 turtles. Complex is within walking distance to town and a block from the grocery store Soriana. Great stay!

A little oasis in the heart of cozumel

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Colonial. Located in the center of town, it is a little gem and the owners have put so much heart into this property. The gardens and the pool are lush and relaxing...lots of tropical plants and the family of land turtles live there are so cute! Authentic tiles abound in the villa and it is really a charming Mexican casa.

Amazingly accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

This location can definitely be your FIRST CHOICE for a Cozumel stay!! You needn't even consider an all-inclusive...

(have heard SO MANY stories of crowded pools, bars, buffet lines, complaints of poor service, AC lacking, shuttles missed..) STAY AT CASA COLONIAL!!

Privacy, well-kept, casual. Beaches easily accessible by cab or with rental vehicle. Blocks from the airport. Easy walk to restaurants, grocery, cafes, bottle shops....

We have enjoyed stays here since their FIRST YEAR! Last time April '15. By the 2nd day we'd totally lost track of the day and time!! But... we knew WHERE we were!! Our favorite villa on Cozumel!!

Bob & Sarah are consummate hosts, helpful at a moments notice. They've advised all sorts of excursions, sites, eateries... and have gratefully accepted our invitation to dine with us.... !Que linda gente!! De buena onda!!

!VIVE Bob y Sarah! !VIVE Casa Colonial! !VIVE Cozumel! Where Mexico viejo still lives! and relaxes!

We have found our home on Cozumel!

  • 5 of 5

Within an hour of our arrival at Casa Colonial we knew that we had found "home". We travel to the island frequently to dive, and it took us several attempts to find the right place to lay our heads. Casa Colonial has it all - spacious, clean, comfortable, and modern accommodations; absolutely gorgeous common areas and gardens; unbelievable peace, quiet, and tranquility; great location; and the most gracious host we have ever encountered. We also operate a vacation rental property on the mainland, and we were amazed to watch Sarah work. Where does she find the energy to be so friendly, positive, cheerful, and accommodating from sunrise to sunset, all the while working diligently to keep the property beautiful and manicuring the magnificent gardens?

A few things you will find at Casa Colonial that are NOT common in this region of Mexico:

1) Comfortable beds! We usually expect the typical hard, flat mattresses, but these are very comfortable.

2) HUGE closets!

3) Nice modern touches like three-way light can tun the lights in a room or on the staircase off/on from either side of the room and from the top or the bottom of the stairs.

4) A BATHTUB!!! My wife looks forward to each visit to Cozumel just for this ammenity.

5) Great water pressure! It appears that each villa has its own pressure system - no more trying to wash your hair with a trickle of gravity-fed water!

6) VOIP phone for free calls to the USA. Probably to Canada and other countries as well.

7) Security! The entire property is surrounded by a high wall and security is maintained at the front gate, so you can keep your doors and windows open at all times, night or day. This provides wonderful airy circulation and a much more "open" feel. You can't usually sleep with your door and windows open in the USA, but you CAN in Mexico!

The location of Casa Colonial is perfect. Far enough from the water to be away of the daily hustle and bustle of 20 to 30 THOUSAND cruise ship passengers that set foot on Cozumel daily, but close enough for a leisurely walk down to the Caribbean. There is a full grocery store (Soriana) about 1.5 blocks away, and a number of delightful restaurants within easy walking distance. The only times we took a taxi was to/from our dive shop, which is a good distance south of the Centro area. And Sarah is always spot-on with her restaurant recommendations - just ask!

We can't say enough good things about Casa is truly a gem.

Perfect central location with charm and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Casa Colonial and owners, Sarah and Bob, have exceeded all our expectations time and time again. We have stayed here at least 4 times and plan to go back. The 4-villa hotel is at a perfect location, within walking distance to town, but in a quiet neighborhood in a gorgeous, luxurious setting, including a beautiful pool, and landscaped courtyard, which was a great place to relax after exploring the island. They provided a very detailed map with all their favorite spots for restaurants, shopping, diving and things to explore on the island. They set up a rental car for us and put us in contact with an excellent dive shop to take us out on our own personal dive. The villas were spacious, charming, comfortable and clean. We felt very safe, very pampered and had the time of our lives. Sarah and Bob went out of their way to make our stay with them a perfect holiday, one we hope to repeat year after year, and will recommend to many. This is a wonderful alternative to an all-inclusive resort. Thanks for another wonderful stay!!!
