******ANOTHER UNIT AVAILABLE******You´ll love our condominium, Quintas del Mar. Great atmosphere, it is very quiet and close to...everything!!

Keep Reading!!

Our apartments decoration is very special, check it out, you´ll be surprised to find this in the Caribbean!!!

The common areas are great, 4 swimming pools, large grass areas, palapas with tables and chairs, the beach, and the amazing view of Isla Mujeres and the Hotel Zone.

The people at Quintas del Mar are great too, very easygoing atmosphere. Some live there, others come on vacation. All vacationers come back, always! Quintas del Mar is famous for it. Some, a few times a year, others for many years in a row.

Many great things about Quintas del Mar.... you can get up in the morning and step out to go for a jog or a walk while enjoying the view.

It is very close to everything.

It is withing walking distance to a 24 hr convenience store, a small local grocery store and to the ferry that takes you to Isla Mujeres. (very beautiful Island).

A couple of large supermarkets are only 5 min away.

Transportation is good and safe. Local city bus around $0.25 USD and taxi to center around $3 USD.

If you go to the Hotel Zone you are better off taking the bus, taxi will cost around $10 USD

The city center and the start of the hotel zone are only a few minutes away by transport. (10 min)

The central bus station is 10 min away. They have first class transport at really affordable prices. There, you can take buses to Playa del Carmen (1:15min), Tulum (1:45min) and many other places.

The airport is about 35 min away.

And very close by, you can enjoy luxury shopping or low key, local markets, cinema, restaurants, snorkeling, windsurf, ...and many other things...actually, everything, because like I said before....Everything is close by, Cancun is quite small.

I would say it is perfect for those who want to enjoy the tranquility but still be close to the party scene and more crowded areas in case you want to experience it.

***And don´t forget about the $$$, by staying here you´ll save hundreds of dollars that you can use to do more activities!!

We hope you come stay here, you won´t regret it!

About natalia maria johnston vindel

Hello!! We are Natalia and Ioachim. I am Spanish and Ioachim is Mexican/German.

We have been living in Cancun for many years now and we love it.

We work here in Cancun. Ioachim´s company manufactures and sells arts, crafts and souvenirs to the boutiques in the hotels. I manage this property and i am a full time mom of 2.

When we are not working, we like to travel, or just enjoy our Caribbean. We go to the beach, spend the day on our boat, or enjoy time with friends and family having barbecues outdoors. Barbecues and celebrations are a must, in Mexico!

We are animal lovers, we have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 ferret and 2 sons!.

natalia maria johnston vindel purchased this apartment in 2007

Why natalia maria johnston vindel chose Quintana Roo

We bough this property in 2007 originally to live in it, and we did for a couple of years. Now we live in one of the bigger houses within the condominium.

We knew Quintas del Mar because Ioachims mother lives here and we loved its atmosphere. The common areas are the best around, 4 swimming pools, lots of grass areas, palapas with tables and chairs and of course...the beachfront and a great view of Isla Mujeres and the Hotel Zone. We weren´t wrong, living here has been magical. It is close to...everything, really. Cancun is quite small and everything is close by.

What makes this apartment unique

There are many things to enjoy in our condo. For starters, the decoration is unique. It is arabic style. We went to Morocco (Africa) on vacation and fell in love with...everything! so we brought back many decorative items. We then remodelled the property, doors, bathroom, kitchen, to match the style. It is not for everyones taste but we know whoever decides to stay here will appreciate it as much as we do.

As I said before, the common areas are great, 4 swimming pools, large grass areas, palapas with tables and chairs, the beach, and the amazing view of Isla Mujeres and the Hotel Zone.

The people are great too, very easygoing atmosphere. Some live there, others come on vacation. All vacationers come back, always! Quintas del Mar is famous for it. Some, a few times a year, others for many years in a row.

The fact that we live on site is very helpfull to our guests. I always emphasize the fact that WE ARE HERE TO HELP, and to please come over to our house if they need anything at all.

Quintas del Mar Condominium is very close to everything.

It is withing walking distance to the ferrys that takes you to Isla Mujeres.

Transportation is good and safe.

The city center and the start of the hotel zone is only a few minutes away by transport. The central bus station is 10 min away. They have first class transport at really affordable prices. There you can take buses to Playa del Carmen (1:15min), Tulum (1:45min) and many other places. The airport is 35 min away.

And very close by you can enjoy shopping, cinema, restaurants, snoreling, windsurf...and many other things.

Another great thing about Quintas del Mar is you can get up in the morning and step out to go for a jog or a walk while enjoying the view.

I would say it is perfect for those who want to enjoy the tranquility but still be close to the party scene and more crowded areas in case you want to experience it.

Quiet Cancun Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 2 wonderful weeks in this apartment. It is perfect for couples looking for a quiet vacation away from the main tourist area. It is a short walk to the ferry to Isla Mujeres, and we liked it there so much we went 4 times. Great beaches, activities, and restaurants. Be careful with taxis, some are honest and some take advantage of tourists. We suggest you call Roberto at 998 201 53 89, he is a wonderful man and will charge much less than you would expect. It isn't difficult to get around on public transit, especially if you can speak a little Spanish. The view from the balcony is amazing, there is a nice pool area, and the beach is close by. Natalia lives on the property and is only an email or phone call away...and if she doesn't hear from you for a few days she contacts you to make sure all is well. The only minor issue we had was a lack of coffee mugs and we had 4 brand new ones the next day. Natalia is very warm and welcoming and she is truly available, it is not just a sales comment on her site. We were really impressed that there is a phone in the room with free calls locally and to the US and Canada.

Great apartment and vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here so much! The apartment was in a beautiful location close to culture and adventure. The location was perfect for people looking to avoid the hotel zone. The beach was right next door and the ferry to Isla Mujeres is within walking distance along with some great restaurants. Taxis were easy to get and it was not hard to communicate with the drivers. The apartment was cozy and perfect for 2 people. There were two beds, but one also doubled as the main seating for the living room. The balcony was where we spent most of our time while at the apartment. The view was incredible. Natalia was very helpful; easy to talk to and had great advice. We would recommend this spot to anyone who is looking for a relaxing, fun, cultural experience in Mexico.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo. Natalia was great and we appreciated the opportunity to get to know her. The condo was as described and pictured. For us the only downfall was that there is not a sofa or chairs (besides the chairs that go with the pub table) in the living area. The futon cushion was comfortable, but we like to sit to read or watch TV instead of laying down. We spent a lot of time on the terrace so it wasn't too much of a big deal for us. And it was not enough to keep us from loving this place or reducing our rating of it. The condo itself and the grounds of the condo were immaculate, beautiful and not crowded at all. We never once had to fight for a lounger by the pool. As a matter of fact there was only 1 time where there was someone other than us by the pool. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. While our trips to Tulum and Isla Mujeres were wonderful (and incredibly gorgeous!!), I can honestly say the best part of our time in Cancun were the days we spent at the condo relaxing by the pool with our books. We never did quite figure out the bus system but the taxis worked just fine and were not expensive. We ate the tacos from Rico's taco stand there at Playa del Nino. Rico was as nice as he could be and was sure to say hello the several times we saw him. We also ate at Mar Bella 3 times in a week. It was AWESOME!! You have to go there for the freshest seafood, impeccable service and best view ever. While the condo is definitely out of the "touristy" areas, we always felt safe walking here and there. We talked about it a few times, the pros and cons of not staying in the hotel zone, and we decided that we definitely made the right decision to stay at this condo and would have done it and will do it again... hopefully sooner rather than later. For those of you that are like us, who speak absolutely no Spanish and who have not spent a ton of time in Mexico, you may be a little nervous at first fearing that you will not be able to bridge the language barrier. Please take my word for it, we were nervous too after that first day, but by the end of the 2nd day we had realized that we were going to be fine as most people we dealt with did speak enough English to understand us and our needs. Even if they didn't, they were extremely nice and tried their best to help. I can't say enough what an incredible time we had. Stay here!! You will not be disappointed. We miss it already.

Natalia's Love Nest.

  • 5 of 5

Yes Natalia’s condominium is exactly as described with pictures that say a thousand words. It has a spectacular view of the famous Isla Mujeres and part of hotel area.

Other guests have written about the personalized care that the hostess Natalia gives each day. We can only confirm all of them and add that the condo is exactly as shown in the pictures. We made good use of the futon bed as one of us would always watch the TV while the other would retire to the master bedroom.

We quickly learned how the bus and taxi system worked and took full advantage of it. There are so many things to do in the area that we were never bored. We ventured out as far south as Tulum and as far north as Merida.

We were truly amazed by the fascinating scenes from the terrace. Fishing boats coming in with their daily catch. Ferry boats passing every 30 minutes filled with visitors in route to Isla Mujeres. Each morning had a different cloud formation and provided some of the most beautiful sunrises that I have ever seen.

A special mention must be given to the spectacular show of skills that the numerous birds put on for us. Each morning at exactly 7 am these birds would appear. Flying around at different levels. They would criss-cross but never collide with each other and suddenly one by one they would dive into the sea or the pool with such precision that their beaks would skim along the water allowing them to drink without landing.

In the afternoons they would also provide us with more entertainment. One by one they would settle in the sea and clean themselves as if getting ready for a long night out on the town.

It was truly a memorable six week stay.

One that will remain in our memories forever.

What you see is EXACTLY what you get!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Natalia and her condominium. The way it's pictured and described is exactly what you arrive to. The bed in the room is so comfortable and everything you need to make your stay a good one is available there. Natalia picked-up my daughters and I from the airport for a small fee and even made a stop at the local grocery store for food. The unit was very clean and well kept. The community is very relaxed and peaceful. When trying to go down to the hotel area all you need to do is grab a taxi to the ADO or a little bus right outside the condo. Transportation was very easy to understand and once you get the hang of it you'll be in and out of the area as if you were a local. It's very convenient that you have Playa del Nino right next to the condo so the days you want to stay in and relax you can. Natalia lives right next to the complex and she's so easy to get a hold of for any questions or concerns. I would definitely return and recommend to any friend that would like to visit Cancun and doesn't want to stay in the hotel zone.
