A REAL GEM OVERLOOKING THE CARIBBEAN SEA

Cancun Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Caribbean Sea View, Steps From The Beach (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy paradise in this newly renovated luxury condominium, steps from the beach, professionally designed and decorated, and ideally located in Cancun's hotel zone in the Villas Marlin Condominium complex.

This charming villa is modern and cozy with a flair of the Yucatan and designed for your enjoyment, comfort and convenience. You can admire the view of the sea from the living and dining areas, kitchen and bedroom.

The Villas Marlin complex has 3 pools (including a kids' pool), whirlpools, mini market, laundry service, tennis court, and 24-hour manned security with gated, controlled entry and a very friendly staff.

The Villas are located in a quiet area directly behind the upscale Kukulkan Plaza shopping mall. The famous 'La Isla' Shopping Village is a short walk away. This huge, unique, 'open air' mall offers a large variety of restaurants, cafes, shops, a movie complex , aquarium and a food court overlooking the lagoon. You are only steps away from bank, restaurants, taxi stop and the bus stop used by most tourists.

Renting a car is not needed -- taxis are readily available, and the bus service is excellent, will take you anywhere you want to go for a small bus fee.

About Owners

We are an American couple who fell in love with the beauty of the Caribbean sea and the white, soft sandy beaches of Cancun. My husband recently retired, and I am an Interior designer. After spending several winters in Cancun at the Villas, we decided to purchase a villa in 2013 which we completely renovated. We are sure you will enjoy staying at our villa as much as we do.

Villas Marlin Gem

  • 5 of 5
This condo was exactly what we needed and was just as advertised, right down to the lovely photos. It's appointed beautifully yet with practicality for a rental property (e.g. you don't have to worry about breaking the fine crystal). The unit was clean, comfortable and showed pride of ownership. The proximity to the beach made lazy days easy. The owner was very accessible via e-mail and most helpful. The Condo's 'user guide' was full of great information, including fantastic restaurant recommendations just across the road.

We are shameless 'special need' foodies. This makes eating out for every meal a challenge. Being able to shop and cook for ourselves 80% of the time is the only way we can travel like this. The condo's kitchen was aptly equipped. The condo made family meal time with our adult daughters far more relaxed and enjoyable than if we'd had to depend on restaurants 100% of the time. Compared to a hotel, the cost benefit ratio, on top of comfort ambiance and feeling at home, makes this a slam dunk!

While enjoying our stay in Cancun we went to Chichen Itza and Xcaret (both via rental car). Snorkeling, Parasailing and Isla Cozumel were all accessed via bus and/or taxi. Swimming in the Caribbean was a short stroll from the front door.

We will return.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5
We loved the condo. Stocked with everything we needed and easy access to shopping, dining, and markets. The pool was awesome and so was the beach. We felt safe and secure and the staff onsight was really nice and helpful. We felt like Villas Marlin was the prime spot when comparing to the bigger resorts. We were very pleased! The owner was great to work with and provides a lot of good information about the condo and Cancun! Cant wait to stay again!

A very happy experience

  • 5 of 5
The unit is very nice overall. It offers everything we wanted: right in the middle of the hotel zone, right on the beach, good size pool, convenient in turns of transportation and shopping, and reasonable price for a 2br 2 ba condo. The kitchen was very nice with a good view of the ocean. The bedrooms were big enough with comfortable beds. The owner was very prompt in answering our questions. He also provided comprehensive information on food, bus, entertainment and so on. The unit also provided free telephone service within Mexico and to the US if you ever needed to call. The owner and manager went out of their way to make our last day as convenient as possible so we did not have to haul our luggage all over the places after we check out and before our shuttle picked us up.

Overall, we have had a very positive experience with the unit and would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends and family.

great intro to Mexico

  • 5 of 5
I recently had a very enjoyable stay at this charming condo. Everything was as promised. It is very well supplied, comfortable beds, luxury linens, everything new and in good order. The view of the sea is amazing and the beach and pools are easily accessed. The location could not be better-walking distance to many shops and restaurants and bus line right in front. The owners were very pleasant to deal with and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
