Cancún Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

******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.

Some of us at Quintas del Mar like to get together for barbecues and hanging out at the pool. But if you like to be by yourself, we respect that, as long as you know you are welcome to join us!

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.

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 $2.50 USD.

If you go to the Hotel Zone you are better off taking the bus, taxi will cost around $9 USD

The city center and the start of the hotel zone are 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 25 min away.

And very close by, you can enjoy luxury shopping, low key, or local markets, cinema, restaurants, snorkeling, windsurf, kayak, ...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!

PS. Anything we can do to make your stay better, let us know!!

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. And i am now a full time mom.

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 a son!.

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.

We knew the condominium because Ioachims mother lives there and we loved its atmosphere. The common areas are great, 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 there 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.

All of us at Quintas del Mar like to get together for barbecues and hanging out at the pool.

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 25 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.

Wonderful peaceful condo!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 15 nights in Natalia's condo. I traveled from Oregon to Cancun for dental tourism. I traveled alone so I was looking for somewhere peaceful and comfortable to stay during my dental surgery, as well as safe and quiet to recuperate in comfort. I chose the best location by staying here! The condo is small but delightful. The decor is restive and beautiful. The two AC units are quiet and work terrific. I run warm so I appreciated being nice and cool who's hanging out indoors! Natalia lives on the property, so it was nice to know she was there to ask questions or to solve any problems (which I didn't have!). The balcony has an incredible view of the riviera Maya and Isla Mujeres. Right next door next to Playa del Niños are some great little restaurants for delicious street style tacos. The condo units are gated even to pedestrians so you always feel very safe walking around the property. The people who live there are extraordinarily friendly too. You'll be participating in weekend BBQs if you so desire! The king bed is beyond comfortable; I slept so well. Mary, Natalia's nanny and housekeeper, is truly a dynamo. She cleans beyond anything I've ever seen! I truly appreciated having twice weekly cleaning and linen changing. Natalia's mother in law, Lirio, also lives in the condo community and is so warm, kind and helpful. If you stay here, you'll feel like family. It was just perfect for my stay. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped -- an Oster blender, juicer, dishes and silverware, and every kitchen gadget imaginable. This unit is NOT stocked as far as spices, so bring a few of your favorites from home. I purchased black pepper for dirt cheap at the Superama. Oh, and Natalia offers round trip airport service for a reasonable price and will take you grocery shopping on the way to the condo too. That was a wonderful service for me. I didn't rent a car as taxi service is so inexpensive and people drive nutty in Cancun!! Lol. Unfortunately there was ongoing construction in the unit above me, so that was cumbersome in trying to nap during the day, but I just headed to the pool to relax during loud times. I know the construction was close to being completed, so this shouldn't bother any future renters. The pools are clean and very warm with lots of chaise lounges. For the price charged to stay in this condo, you just can't beat it. You'll be astonished at the fine furnishings, comfort and class at Quintas del Mar! The futon in the living room was perfect!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I previously stayed in Natalia's condo with my boyfriend and it had everything we needed! The air conditioning works really well and everything is very clean! It is not more than 10-15 minutes away from the hotel zone and is just about a 5 minute walk from the Isla Mujeres port if you're looking to have a relaxing day trip to snorkel or whatever. There is a pizza/wine restaurant about a 2 minute walk away that is very good! Natalia is very sweet and does whatever she can to make sure you are comfortable :)

Trotteuse

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été enchanté du site: Plage juste à côté du condo, dépanneur à distance de marche, restos locaux tout près , autobus R1 face au traversier qui vous amène directement à la zone hôtelière. Secteur sécuritaire, les habitants de Puerto Juarez sont sympathiques et serviables. Le condo situé face à la mer offre une vue sur l'Isla Mujares et sur la zone hôtelière. Très propre et bien équipé, lit confortable et système audio et wi-fi excellent. L'hôtesse très sympathique et disponible pour toutes questions et renseignements. Nous recommandons chaudement.

Perfectly Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We don't have much new to say- - just repeating what all the reviews say: the condo is just as represented. Beautiful view, super quiet at night, CLEAN, everything you need to relax. We enjoyed the restaurants along the water- Mar Bella above the little market, Mandiga, a couple we never did figure out the names. We speak no Spanish, but with lots of smiles and a little luck, we were never disappointed. We went over to Isla Mujeres 3 out of 7 days- gorgeous. We highly recommend renting a scooter ($30/US for 9-5 at Indios) and heading down to Garrafon Castille. For about 160 pesos for 2 people, we enjoyed a beautiful beach, locker for valuables, and 2 sets of snorkeling masks. Unforgettable! Natalia is the perfect host- there if you need her but not intrusive. The airport pick up was probably the best money spent on vacation! One last thing- don't worry about weather: weather .com was wrong, local weather was wrong, each day had its sun, clouds and sometimes rain. It's all good!

Postcard Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Natalia is an excellent hostess! Take advantage of the airport pickup. Natalie stops at the Superama to assist in getting the items necessary to start up your vacation. Since she lives in the greater complex; its common to see her nearly daily. Quick with a wave, a "hola" or a simple "hows your day?"; she wants to ensure your satisfaction without being intrusive. We encountered a plugged kitchen sink on the first full day and she was all over getting it repaired promptly with no disruption to our stay (we had planned a trip to Market 23 anyway). Natalia stayed with the repair man and all was resolved upon our return. Mary takes great pride in providing the housekeeping service. She does a great job and is worth every bit of the 100 peso tip. The condo is quiet, peaceful and friendly; every feature needed to relax and recharge. A perfect size for 2 or 3 people. The utensils met all our needs and trust me when I say we worked the blender hard!! Although this site is not for the "party animals"; it is common to see folks enjoying happy hour and even using the complex grill. Being near the beach add to the experience. Sunday is family day with the locals flocking to enjoy the beach. We enjoyed the roadside tacos and I would highly recommend having the sauted jalapenos with the shredded pork. The grounds and pool are well maintained. A perfect experience at a great price!
