About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

This beautiful condo is located three miles north of the hotel zone and away from the maddening crowd. It is only twenty five minutes from the airport and near the fisherman's village of Puerto Juarez. This condo has a beautiful beach with views of the hotel zone and the island of Isla Mujeres. The ferry to the island is four blocks away. Tours can be booked at the resort next door. Convenience stores are within walking distance. Easy walking to the Mayans ruins named El Meco. Minibuses pass in front of the complex every ten minutes and go downtown where the mercados and large grocery stores are located.

About Michael L. Garcia

My wife and I have been in the real estate business in Denver, CO for close to forty years. We took a leap of faith and decided to try international real estate. We love this area of Cancun and go down with our son three times a year for detailed upkeep on the place. The water in this area is calm enough for children.

Michael L. Garcia purchased this condo in 1999

Why Michael L. Garcia chose Quintana Roo

We looked everywhere from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen to Cancun for a place to buy. This condo was a good buy for our family and was still the real Mexico. It is not overly Americanized with Pizza Hut, Outback Steakhouse, McDonald's, etc. The area is a small fishing village just three miles north of downtown Cancun. The palapa style restaurants in the area serve the catch of the day.


Excellent! 4.5/5 -

Quiet Mexican Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The property was great for our quiet retreat from our busy lives. We enjoyed listening to the ocean from the living area window. Although traveling about was an adventure, we loved our stay. Mayan ruins are close by, great local restaurants and the local people were all quite helpful. Nearby island was great fun by day and night. The owners were helpful the entire process.

Cancun for real people

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I stayed hear this summer and found it to be located one of the last bastions local flavor left in Cancun. It was nowhere near the hotel zone with its American chain restaurants, full of American tourists. We ate local fresh delicious local food the whole time; yes, we had to order in Spanish and we had to be flexible of what we expected, particularly from eager young wait staff, but I can safely say it was a week of delectable top rate dinning at minimal cost.

When we did not feel like going out we were able to cook for our selfs in a beautiful kitchen and enjoy a private pristine beach all day. When we wanted to make reservations to do the “tourist” thing we went next door to the hotel and found everything we could want; and any time we wanted to explore we just took these cute little, (I am 6'5), buses that cost .30$ USD to ride. We took them downtown to go shopping and walked back without incident; any time we were lost people were more than happy to help with directions.

If you are looking for a safe Mexico vacation that is not in an all inclusive resort this may be for you. It is right across from Isla Mujardes, located in a locals neighborhood surrounded by beach, mangroves and restraints. Don't by scared by what you see on TV, tourist dollars drive everybody's interest in the Cancun area, trying to speak Spanish and being polite will take you vary far.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our recent two-week stay at this lovely ocean-front condo. We found it to be very clean, comfortable, quiet and secure. We liked the closeness to the ocean, the soothing sound of the water, and immediate access to the beach area for relaxing and swimming. We much preferred this location to the commercialized Cancun hotel zone.

We would also like to compliment Carlos for being extremely helpful and accommodating. We had a great holiday at this condo and would love to return.

After being there 2 weeks out of 2 months, our decision to move was definit and this is the email I sent to the owner.

Hi Michael,

It took me a little while to write you because I had to let go my sorrow. The condo is according to what we saw on Internet, the things we are really desapointed in are the beach, the pool and the location of the condo, and please let me explain and keep in mind that it is not the first time we are renting condos.

The beach is dangerous, my husband got cut even if he had swiming shoes, it is full of corails, rocks, pieces of wood it is also dirty, lots of weeds, I understand we can't stop weeds to come but there should be someone cleaning it more than once over a blue moon. With our daughter and 2 grand daughters coming, the desapointment is even worst, we will have to warn them about the danger and they where so excited by the idea of jumping in upon arrival.

The pool is Ok, but not a chair to sit around.

The location of the condo, out in the bush, we are not the style to enjoy bars and disco's but a least a place with a certain community life. No groceries, no place to go, you need a car. Yes there are taxis, collectivos and let me tell you we use them a lot, but not even a walking distance restaurant, not even able to take a walk after dinner. We enjoy walking to do our day to day shopping, here forget it.

We went to Puerto Aventuras this week-end to friends and had the opportunity to visit condos. For the same price and some a little bit less than what we are paying you, we could get a bigger one, 10 minutes walking from a long, clean sandy beach, a huge pool with a lots of long chairs, palapas, a gym. A big balcony where you can enjoy meals, and a community life where you can walk at night after diner without fear. There is also some small little groceries and a huge one walking distance, restaurants, Internet cafe and more.

I am very sorry to have to come back to you with all those negative comments but for futur advertising and to avoid desapointment like ours, you should mention that there is nothing around here and no facilities at the pool. Also that you need swimming shoes at the beach.

Now after this being said, I am begging you to cancel our agrement and reimburse us at least one month it would make our life much better and happier.

Unfortunatly we didn't get a penny back and moved away on February 21st to Puerto Aventuras were our family could have a great time..

Owner's Response: My wife and I love to travel and have traveled quite a bit. We know what it is like to rent and be disappointed. That is why we do not do false advertising. I inform renters the chairs are in the unit to take down to the beach. When asked about the grocery stores, I inform renters the buses cost 55 cents and go downtown where the grocery stores are located. There is a nice restaurant right next door at the resort and one a little farther down from there. There are five restaurants at the public beach less than one mile away. The condo is on the beach directly across from Isla Mujeres or three miles by land (one mile by water) from the hotel zone. This is populated area, not in the bush. Condos located on the beach typically rent for more than condos 10 minutes from the beach. This is a private condo, not a resort. I have refunded renters 100% of their money with advance notice and will continue to do so with good notice. I freed up the calendar and offered to refund any monies I could collect for a last minute rental. No rentals came through.
