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.

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 Cancún
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 beachfront and a great view of Isla Mujeres and the Hotel Zone. We weren´t wrong, living here has been magical. It is close 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 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, 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.

Natalia was a lovely host
The property was charming well maintained and clean. It had everything we needed. The pools and the views from the balcony were amazing, all my friends in Houston were jealous. Really picturesque location. Also very convenient the apartment was ver close to the beach and charming seaside restaurants, within 5 minute walk. Natalia was super sweet and very helpful. Definitely recommend and would stay there again.
Quaint and secluded
A great spot to relax away from the busy of downtown and the hotel zone. Taxi's can be costly to get to these areas but it's a short walk to the ferry to Isla Mujeras. Natalia is very friendly, easy to talk to and helpful.
Great place to stay in Cancun!!
Such a nice find! A fabulous view, kitchenette and great private terrace! Also right next to a nice public beach. The owner is very sweet, easy to communicate with and very helpful. She told us about a fabulous fish market restaurant close by that was so good we ate there both nights of our stay. Very safe area and we were comfortable walking at night. The ferry to Isla Mujeres was close enough to walk to and we enjoyed our day trip there. Would love to visit this VRBO again! Book this one with confidence.
The real Cancun
If you want to experience the real Cancun, this place is a great start. It's away from the hotels district but close enough to enjoy the excursions. It's a cute little apartment. All the neighbors are friendly and helpful. Natalia was a great host. She's very helpful and answered all of our questions.
Natalia was the kindest host ever. She helped make our stay so wonderful. She is very honest and caring. We had a very restful time
Please join us at Quintas del Mar. We'll be back.
From Jan. to Feb. 2018 We spent six weeks in Natalia’s condo. The condo itself is as described by Natalia and several other reviews. We found it clean and had all the basics for a comfortable stay. As a heads up this is not a ground floor condo. Several areas in Mexico describe one floor up from ground as first floor. The stairwell to this condo does have hand rails but If you have difficulty climbing stairs you may be better off considering a ground floor unit.
There is so much we enjoyed about our stay that we really don’t know where to begin. But here are a few high lights: Natalia and all her family are good people. Yes, you will be well taken care of. What a good mix of both permanent residents and those vacationing. We had a lot of fun meeting and associating with many of these fine folks. The location is great, far enough away from the hotel district and yet it has fantastic views, excellent inexpensive transportation, good sidewalks to venture down and you will feel safe both inside this gated community and the surrounding area. During our stay we traveled (all by public transport or taxi) and took in many of the sights and tours offered. Most evenings we would watch the hotel zone fireworks from our balcony. Sometimes it’s the simple things that add so much value to your stay. If you’re considering this location just do it! This unit will give you full value for dollars spent. By the way please enjoy the brand new king bed.
