About Michele Millane

My husband and I bought this condo 8 years ago after vacationing in Cancun for many years at the hotel right next door. We totally renovated it to make it our own. In that we frequently visit it is equipped with everything that you could need and more. We take great pride in ownership and offer everything that you would expect in an ocean front rental in the US.

Michele Millane purchased this condo in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Highly recommended

It was my first trip to Cancun. I spent 30 days in Shelly’s and John’s condo waking up to a comfortable ocean breeze and a great view. Lina took care of me and got me settled in. A maid cleaned up after me every Wednesday. The buses were very convenient and only about $0.75 per trip. It was easy going back and forth to Walmart for everything I needed. Kukulcan Plaza, next door, offered good food and shopping. While I was there the beach was being repaired along the whole Cancun coast. They just finished up as I was leaving so there is a brand new beach in front of the condo. I had an opportunity to view two other units. They could not compare with this newly refinished unit.

A very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 11 night stay here. The house is in an ideal situation, just a few steps down to the pool and then to the beach. We spent quite a few nights sitting on the balcony watching turtles come up onto the beach to lay their eggs which was an amazing experience. The kitchen was fully equipped so we stayed in some evenings and cooked with food purchased at the supermarket in Kukulcan Plaza opposite the complex. Other nights we made the short walk up to La Isla which had a variety of restaurants, shops and other entertainment. The house was clean and tidy and had everything we needed from beach towels, hairdryer, plenty of storage to body boards if you wanted to use them. Ledy, the cleaner is a star. We had left some clothes to wash one day, intending to do it when we got back in after a trip but when we returned she had done them for us! We would definitely stay here again as it really is in a perfect position within in the hotel zone. It was quiet, peaceful and relaxing, just what we wanted.

Great condo right on the beach. Condo just right for 4 people.

  • 4 of 5

If you want green water, giant tortoise's laying eggs at your condo. Several guards watch a do not touch policy. Pools, security, huge bottled water for the condo, and don't pay more than 300 peso's for the tight knot blankets at MERCARDO 28. If you don't bargin they won't respect you in the morning. Have fun!!!!!!

Owner's Response: The laying of turtle eggs on our beach is what our guests enjoy the most at this time of year. Our security department does a great job at ensuring the safety of the eggs. We are so glad you had the chance to enjoy this while staying in our home.

  • 5 of 5

Close to shopping and dining. Easy to get around the area. Beach and pools were very nice. Lots of loungers available. The condo was very nice. Bed was comfy. I enjoyed cooking for myself. Tons of cooking supplies were available. Washer and dryer helped too. Everyone that worked at the complex was very nice too. I would definitely book there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I loved your comment about our housekeeper Ledy washing clothes!!! She is normally available to assist if visitors request outside of the 1 x a week cleaning which we provide with a weekly rental. It sounds like you made those arrangements with her and enjoyed it! It is my favorite thing when we are here too! Thanks for staying with us.

A quiet place with a beautiful view in the center of the hotel zone

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at the condo during the holiday break 2016. We have a really nice stay. Some pros and cons about the property:


The location is excellent. The terrace that looks off to the beach creates beautiful sunrises and cooler breezes off the water

The proximity to two shopping malls and the supermarket creates many activity and food options within walking distance. It is also one block from the bus giving ready access to all other local sites beyond walking distance.

The property is quiet and safe with visible maintenance and security staff. The myriad of locks on the door is comforting.

All utilities worked well from the air conditioning, WiFi, TV and telephone service through VoIP.

The owner is especially responsive, respectful and accommodating


The place is best suited for three adults - any more starts to make it more cramped. We had four in our party and, given that there are only three double beds, sleeping two people in one bed is tight.

The place could use a cleaning overhaul - dust hangs from ceiling fans and in visible cracks normally missed by the housekeeper. We're not really white glove people - it was noticeable.

Housekeeping is weekly. I should have discussed additional fees for more frequent service from the housekeeper. It would have been worth it.

The pool staff enforces pool rules like the Gestapo. No floats, no ball playing, etc. If you break the rules for five minutes even if there is noone around you to bother, you are given a stern warning. Not the casual setting I expect on a vacation. Some rules need to be eliminated or relaxed.

Owner's Response: We appreciate that you took the time to write a review. We too love that balcony and we purchased the condo primarily for the location. Thank-you also for your kind words about my being accommodating and responsive. I work very hard to be sure our guests receive the same attention that I would want as a guest. There are 3 new Sealy QUEEN-not double beds in the condo purchased at Costco. With a family party of 4 guests and we as owners use one queen for my husband and I upstairs leaving 2 queen beds available down for 2 other people. I am a little mystified about the cleaning issue. We have had Ledy the housekeeper working for us for almost 10 years and this is the first ever complaint. As a matter of fact the last 2 reviews prior to this one speak to her work and how happy our guests are with her. That being said had I been contacted, I would have been more than happy to have her return to correct the issue. Additionally, she would have been thrilled to have the opportunity to provide additional services had I been notified. Unfortunately if I am told after guests depart, I am unable to correct the issue. Finally as an owner who spends a great deal of time there using the facilities ourselves, we totally support the security supervision at the pools. The family or middle pool is large accommodating many people at one time. However, large floating devices and throwing of balls with the pool population changing on a minute’s notice endangers not only people’s comfort but it is also a safety issue. The beach is literally just a few steps from the pool where guests are encouraged to throw a ball.

From our home at Villas Marlin it is only approximately 3 miles to the ferry to Isla Mujeres. This island is truly old Mexico. See the island in a golf cart and snorkeling is available at El Garafon Park. Tours can be arranged to visit Chichen Itza and Tulum which are Mayan ruins. Para sailing is available right on the beach in front of our condo. You can swim with the dolphins 2 blocks away at La Isla
