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.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

It's was a home away from home! Everything you needed. Clean and comfortable, they even wash clothes for you. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

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:

Pros:

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

Cons:

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.

Perfect home away from home..... a little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Michele's condo Nov 1- 14th. Absolutely everything went as planned by Michele. The condo itself is beautiful and has everything you would need for your stay. The morning sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking from the patio. The condo is in the perfect location as there is a large mall with a grocery store across the street. The bus stop is in front of the mall as well which made it very easy to go explore Cancun! Michele and Ledy made our stay very relaxing and enjoyable! I am hoping one day to return to your condo as there is nothing like your hospitality of making our vacation home away from home!

Thank you so much Michele for all you have done for us,

Margot

Perfect condo for a perfect vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is one of a kind. As others have said the photos are exactly the way the condo appears. And more. The grocery store was right across the street at Kulkulkan Plaza. We bought our tour tickets there too. Very convenient. Aside from this great condo and convenient location I cannot say enough kind words about Michele, the owner. Any issues or concerns I had were addresssed quickly. And Ledy, the housekeeper, was superb. I would recommend this condo to anyone. Will definitely go back again.

Great Property, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? I agree with all the other glowing reviews! The condo is well-equipped, well-maintained and nicely decorated. The location is very convenient for a quick trip to the mall across the street (the Soriana grocery store has pretty much everything you might need) or the nearby restaurants. Michele quickly responded to all my email questions. I would book this property again without hesitation.
