About Aileen

My brother and I own this property.

We both live in being by the Mts. we thorly enjoy

this beach and low altitute area, for a change of pace.


Why Aileen chose Tankah

We choose this perticular place due to it being on the beautiful Caribbean Ocean and the layed back attuitute of the complex..and the fact just a few miles down the hotel zone (which we are on) you can also go to clubs and a more lively atomosphere, just 10 min. down the hotel zone, Cab's and buses avail. for that.

What makes this condo unique

WE enjoy the peacefullness of our complex, also all the pools and whirlpools..and that the beach is just a few steps down from the complex grounds.

It is not only couples orientated but also family orientated.

Our condo also has a big benifit as it will hold a family of 10 or less, so families can go resaonable..Also couples enjoy it cause they can be together there and yet have their own room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Aileen,

Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time in Cancun. The condo was wonderful--great location and very spacious for the 8 of us. Thank you so much for all your help. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Paradise only 4 hours away

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to Cancun, staying at Villas Marlin for about 20 years. Due to retirement, property sales, etc we've stayed at multiple different condos. This was by far the BEST! Aileen's condo was not only spacious (twice as much room as typical Villas Marlin), clean, and very comfortable, it was steps from the pool and the beach. My husband and I are in our early 50's and traveled with his parents who are in their late 70's. There was more than enough space for the 4 of us to "live" together for 2 weeks. The location couldn't be better. Cancun's best shopping is either across the street or 2 blocks away. Kukulcan Mall (right behind Villas Marlin) has a new grocery store that is awesome! A couple miles down the road (north) there is a high end grocery store that rivals the best gourmet stores in the states. There are multiple GREAT restaurants within walking distance. This is the first year we didn't rent a car and we never missed it. Make sure you go to Lima (literally across the street) and La Habituela (right next door to Lima). Best coconut shrimp is at Fish Fritanga (next door north of La Habituela). Aileen's condo afforded maximum spoilage at a bargain price. Ledy is simply the best. If I could take home one souvenir, it would have been her! She kept the condo absolutely spotless and even did our laundry! She offered to cook for us and while her English is somewhat limited, there was never any problem conversing with her. The poolside grill was awesome too-many days we'd skip lunch at the condo and just order guacamole and a pina colada for less than 7.00 US! The staff at Villas Marlin was always friendly and courteous. I felt like they welcomed us as though we were owners. Aileen was awesome to do business with. She was timely with her responses, great at answering questions, and even emailed to make sure we got in OK and to see if we were happy or if there was anything she could do for us. We will definitely be back, and we will definitely be renting from Aileen again. If you have a choice-rent this condo! You won't regret it!

Location, location,location

  • 4 of 5

Aileen is so great. We booked her villa 6 or 7 months before our trip. She quickly answered all questions and was so helpful.

There were 8 adults and a three year old with us. Our first impression was location, location, location. On one side of the condo was the beautiful Caribbean. on the other side was a nice mall complete with a grocery store!

Great restaurants all within 3 or 4 blocks as well. We took a city bus (50 cents) to go to downtown Cancun on a couple of occasions.

The condo itself is a bit dated, but it is very, very comfortable. The kitchen, dining, living room, bedroom with bunk beds, bathroom, and washer/dryer are on the top level. The patio is a nice size and offers great view of the ocean. We had breakfast and lots of family time on the patio.

Three bedrooms and 2 baths are downstairs. All rooms are a good size and we were all comfortable. All baths have showers with shampoo and soap. (There are no bathtubs).

My only suggestion (not complaint) is that there is not a dishwasher and the tap water in the kitchen sink is not very hot. We used plastic plates and cups as much as possible. However, we cooked a lot of our meals and we found ourselves washing a lot of dishes in lukewarm water.

We felt very comfortable and safe (there is a lock box in the master bedroom). We would definitely consider returning. Thank you Aileen for your quick response to all of our many questions. You have a beautiful condo.

Owner's Response: TY David, Happy to have had you in our condo. The hot water tank situation, was wrong here, I have two tanks and just left there..So I know there was hot water. I think due to 8 people they probable before or after dinner took, showers and depleated the tank's and did not give them time to revive..when doing the dishes, which in first place could have been left for maid. She also uses clorex when doing them, which also could have been done. I do not get a electric dishwasher due to we like to give the maid's there a job ...and not take that away from them. Aileen

Party of 8

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Aileen for sharing your "home" with us. It was like home. We will miss Villas Marlin. My teenage boys had such a great time. Everything was accessible. The little store down stairs has everything. I didn't need to go to anywhere else. It was so reasonable. One of our best days was staying at the Condo and eating down stairs at the snack bar. The cocktails by the pool were great too. We will miss Ledy. She is a gem. The people of Cancun are so genuine and kind. Thank you again.

We love haveing families such as your's and look forward to you staying again. Our little store and snake bar really appreciated your using their places. Aileen and Robert

Fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Aileen was very easy to work with for the reservation. She was very accommodating when we added a person at the last minute.

The snack bar by the pool has cheap food. Beach and sand bar by Villas Marlin are excellent. Guards by the pool really like to enforce the pool rules but that wasn't a problem for us. Buses run frequently if you want to go anywhere on the hotel zone and the ride is less then a dollar.

Thanks and enjoy this place. It is definitely worth the price.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

After looking around at several places to stay, my three friends and myself settled on this condo based on location, price, and amenities. The condo is two levels with plenty of room for larger groups. The entire complex and pools were very clean and the beach access is perfect with beach loungers available for use. Constantly observed staff and security working around the grounds. Working with Aileen was great, she was prompt to answer any questions and give suggestions. The bus stop is nearby and is less than a 10 min ride to the club and bar areas or easy walking distance to local restaurants, convience stores or malls. I recommend the taco stand across the street from Carlos & Charlies. I suggest exchanging your USD to pesos or use a credit card for any purchases. Several places tried charging me $2-10 more if I paid in USD, even at the airport. Almost forgot, Aileen's maid Ledy was great. She met us there and came twice in five days and completely cleaned the condo including dishes and one guy's laundry. Don't forget to tip her!! Looking forward to returning again and possibly with my kids.

Awesome trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this condo. This was in the dead center of Hotel Zone and close to Walmart and SAMs Club. The property was kept up wonderfully with plenty of space for a large family. The owner Alieen kept in contact with us prior to the visit and answered any questions we had befor and while we were staying. Letty the house keeper was wonderful! She even cooked for us amazing authentic food. The staff and security at the condo were so pleasant, the life guard even let my kids use his boogie board everyday (we made him lunch). It was my parents anniversary and we asked the lady who runs the convenience store to store a cake in her large freezer and she gladly did it. We had one of the best vacations ever and we will most defiantly be visiting again. Thanks again Aileen for everything!!!!
