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 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.

We Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely condo, beautifully renovated and extremely clean. The kitchen is gorgeous with granite countertops, tile backsplash, and appliances that looked brand new, as well as being well-stocked with anything you might need. The air conditioners worked very well, and with the ceiling fans kept the condo quite comfortable. When we went out on excursions we would turn everything off (I recommend pulling the storm shutters on the balcony shut if you are leaving for the day - keeps the sun out and helps the condo remain cool), but when we came back in only took a few minutes for the AC to make the place comfortable again. The Wi Fi was great (the kids watched Netflix on their laptops), and the beds were very comfortable. The only downside for us is that my husband and I are accustomed to a king-sized bed, and the double bed was a little bit cramped for the two of us. He ended up taking our daughter's bed and she and I slept together much more comfortably.

Michelle, the owner, is amazingly helpful, and she answered all of my questions, both before the trip and those I came up with after I got there, in record time.

The complex itself has three pools, a snackbar, and a small store in the front where we exchanged the 5-gallon jug in the condo twice for fresh drinking water for about $2. The mall across the street has a big grocery store where you can stock up, and for only $2 they will deliver right to your condo. The bus line runs in front of the mall and they run about every 5 minutes, so for about 62 cents/person we took the bus to the Museo de Maya Cancun, El Rey Ruins, Playa Delphine, and in the other direction to the ferry to Isla Mujeres (we rented a golf cart and spent the day), and the club zone. For those who are so inclined, you could easily take the bus 5 minutes to the clubs (Coco Bongo and the like), and the buses run regularly all night - no worries about a designated driver. BTW, when we got on the buses, all we had to do was tell the bus driver where we were going, and he always stopped when we got there - they were all extremely friendly and helpful.

Overall, we found the condo to be not only lovely, but so conveniently located for all our needs. Whether you want to stay mostly on the property and hang out at the beach or pool all day, or go off on excursions, this is the perfect place. We will recommend this condo to all of our friends, and hope to return to this condo for future Cancun visits!

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear you enjoyed our home! It is our favorite place to be which is why it is so well equipped. Many people have commented on how comfortable the beds are. They are Sealy mattresses-actually they are queen size with all 3 purchased within the last 2 years at Costco! Mexican mattresses are known to be too firm-we were delighted to be able to get a brand we were familiar with. We look forward to your return.

Convenient location, great beach, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This unit at Villas Marlin was perfect for us. Having the mall and grocery store so close made everything easier. The condo was very clean and tidy and lots of starter items were provided (TP, dish and laundry detergent, etc). The beds were soft but oh so comfy and the a/c worked perfectly. There was a little excess noise from the outside corridors late at night but I'm sure it was just some teens having a good time, so no bother really. The view from the balcony is stunning, the blue green water is just indescribable. There are bus stops in front of the mall and the bus system is easy to use and very inexpensive. The owners respond promptly to emails. This is a great unit on the beach.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is awesome. Directly behind the Kukulcan Plaza, where there is shopping, restaurants, a pharmicia & a nice grocery store. It is within walking distance to La Isla, a bigger mall with several restaurants & more shopping. There are many restaurants within walking distance and we only left the area 3 times during our stay. The beach is fantastic & the pools were well maintained & never too crowded.

The condo was clean, comfortable & very well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and there were many extras including a cooler, beach towels and frozen mugs. Having a washer & dryer was also very nice.

We felt very safe at this location, there was a life guard on duty and security at the pool.

Yes, this complex is older but this unit is newly redone and very nice. There seemed to be a lot of work going on to update the complex as a whole also.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us! The granite and the back splash in the kitchen were completed right at the end of April further equipping the area. Feeling safe and the location was really the principle reasons why we bought our condo there. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Michele

Car: not necessary

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
