About Vanda Zemkova
We are a couple of retired dentists that love the safety, beauty, relaxing life style, great food, activities and the friendly people of Cozumel. We call Cozumel "home", because that is how we feel it here. We want our guests to experience the same wonderful life on the Island.
Vanda Zemkova purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Vanda Zemkova chose Zona Hotelera Norte
We chose this building, because it is an ocean front and not close to the rush of the cruise liner passengers. We are 3 miles front downtown and major attractions. We have a breath taking view of the jungle and the ocean and an amazing infinity pool to see the sunsets, as if we were in a box seat.

Lots of space with direct ocean access. Wonderful rental
We love the north part of the island and this condo was perfect. It has large bedrooms, each with own private baths. The kitchen is perfect if you like to cook but the location is within walking distance to San Miguel for eating out. The pool is freshwater which is great when you come out of the ocean. Brenda is excellent helping with any needs you have. We look forward to coming back soon
It was comfortable....need boxsprings on beds.
Had to go to grocery store for toilet paper and paper towels..i was expecting a golf cart which was not available...one A.C. and TV small guest room was not functional...make sure your pictures show you are not facing the ocean.
Nancy. Why you didnt call me? I was available and I could assist you. I even left you a local cellphone to contact me directly. If I knew before I could tell you where the stuff are storaged. Or you could contact me here.
Im just finding out about this things. Now I know why you left the ac on with the balcony doors open and the tv on too.
The golf cart got damaged by a previous renter for an abusive usage, unfortunatelly we havent found the piece and thats why we are not longer offering it as a cortesy.
Fantastic week in Cozumel!
Our group of four friends had an amazing time in Cozumel for a week and the condo was perfect for us. Really spacious upstairs bedrooms with their own bathrooms, and two large futons down in the living room with a third bathroom. The water downstairs was too rough for snorkeling the first day, but we got the chance to snorkel just outside the condo a different day and were very impressed with the reef (we explored a lot and found many other great places to snorkel on the island too). We had a rental car which made it really convenient to get all over the island, did a lot of shopping at Mega and cooking at the condo. We found everything as described. Even though the washer and dryer were temporarily out of order, the manager let us know promptly and laundry service was offered. Brenda also answered emails really quickly, which was great. We loved the view, the privacy, and had a great time!
Missing some amenities.
No telephone, so no "free local and long distance calls". It was difficult arranging for rental car, restaurants, and tours without local calling. International calling was a problem with all of our cell phones. Property manager was not very responsive to issues. No electricity for most of a day. Microwave didn't work (we repaired it). Tiny view from balcony of the Caribbean. Downstairs shower was not useable (terrible leak sprayed all over the bathroom). Pots and pans were rusty and nasty. Safes were not working and batteries would not stay in holder...not useable.
Owners were very nice and friendly and returned communication immediately but were hampered by unavailable property manager (who thought it was funny that the telephone did not work). Rooms were clean and bright. We overcame glitches and had a good time but renters should be made aware of missing amenities.
First the good: The condo was as advertised. It was very nice, the pool area was quiet and the security personnel were very friendly.
Now the bad: Communications with the owner were beyond poor. Communications with the property mgr. were a little better, but not much. Prior to our arrival, I tried to confirm that someone would meet us. No response. Once we cleared customs, I called 5 times., No answer. Going on a hope and prayer, we arrived at the condo and lo and behold there was the property mgr. waiting for us. A return call sure would have been nice. Once inside the condo we were informed not to flush toilet paper...understandable. That the cleaning person would come daily to empty the trash receptacles daily. Long story short, we had to call to have the trash removed, not once but twice. My over all impression is this: the owner jumped into the rental market with no clue as to how to do it properly. Communications are critical and she failed miserably. She was more than happy to take our money (even though, she tried to overcharge us). But when it was time to refund our security deposit, it took no less than 8 emails to both the owner and property mgr. to refund our funds.
Overall, I will never, ever rent fro these people again, and I would advise the same for others. The property is on the market, so this will be moot.......
Wonderful stay in a wonderful condo.
We had the good fortune of booking a stay in this condo. As background, we are Cozumel regulars having been approximately 10 times in 7 years. Up until this point we have always stayed in a hotel in town but had been interested in trying a condo in the north end. We came across this condo on VRBO. Communication was flawless and within 12 hours our trip had been booked and payed for. On arrival in the island we checked in and were given instructions that would help for our stay. The apartment building itself is a little north of the airport and an energetic couple could walk to town. If you are not feeling energetic, it is a short cab ride into town with the average cost of about 60 pesos which by current exchange rates is a mere $3. As a tip, the taxi union is still using a 10-1 conversion ratio and so they will quote you 60 pesos or $6. Clearly, 60 pesos is a much better deal. the owners do have a golf cart which they have graciously allowed their guests to use however, we opted to go with the ease of use of the taxi. The apartment itself was beautifully laid out and stylishly decorated and very clean. All appliances and amenities worked and the free wifi was fast and very useful. Cable is available as is roku. The building is very safe and the employees friendly and helpful. We are the only ones at the pool and so fighting for deck chairs was a non-issue. The entrance to the sea is by means of a ladder onto very smooth rocks and then patches of sand and so getting in and out was very easy. The view was amazing. The air conditioning in the apartment was excellent and purified water was provided. While the owners were not on-site at that time, as they were temporarily off the island, communicating with them was a pleasure. Highly rated stay in a lovely apartment on a lovely part of the island. Will be back. Definitely a win for vacationers.
Tranquil relaxing environment in Cozumel. 24/7 security in the building and around the Island. Perfect for a retreat ,but at the same time many entertaining options for all tastes. Great shopping and restaurants, movies, scuba, fishing, snorkel, disco, live music, available tours to water theme parks and Mayan Ruins, 30 minutes ferry ride to Playa del Carmen. There are rentals available of motorcycles, jeeps, cars, bikes, or taxis to go around the Island.
