FAQ's About Our Home
1. Is it close to the ocean? We are about 200 yards from the beach as the crow flies from our rooftop. The beach is Puerto Juarez which is the original Cancun Beach before the Hotel Zone ever existed. It is the polar opposite of the glitz of the tourist area. It still has the innocent charm of a small fishing village with a lovely public beach which is usually filled with locals rather then tourists (see pics). My favorite restaurant is there - Kulkukan - right on the water which serves margaritas that you simply can't get in the hotel zone right under two big palapas right on the beach.
Literally a two minute drive from our house, at the beginning of Puerto Juarez beach is the Ultramar Ferry which for 8 dollars takes you to our favorite island, Isla Mujeres, which is the reason why we bought in our neighborhood. It's a great island with a amazing beaches, tourist shops, restaurants, bars and - my favorite - fantastic inexpensive massages right on the beach. You can rent a scooter or golf cart and tool around the island on golf carts and scooters. A blast!
2. Is it safe? Completely safe. Our home is in a gated and guarded community which has guard service 24 /7. Look up the location on google maps or Google earth to get an idea of where we are. Search "Cuenca, Bahia Azul, Cancun".
3. How does the airport pickup/dropoff work
Tranquility House offers our TOTAL CARE PACKAGE which we give as a free service to ALL of our guests!
Guests of Tranquility House are treated as guests in our own home. We will pick you up at the airport when you arrive and drop you off at the airport when you depart free of charge (one group only please back and forth. If your group's arrival is staggered we can arrange other pick ups but your party will have to pay for the additional trips, so use your largest group arrival for the pick up.) Scott, our on-site property manager, will meet you at the home when you arrive. He is amazingly helpful (see our reviews). He also is well connected to the travel industry and so has been able to secure great rental cars and vans for small or large groups (we do not take a commission for this - this is just part of our service), help with finding tours etc.
After your arrival, Scott will take you for a tour of the area so you know how to get around town. We will show you the best Hotel Zone beaches, bars, grocery stores, gas stations, the Isla Mujeres Ferry (only a two minute drive away) etc. He can help you get tickets to all of the tourist destinations...and he lives right in the neighborhood if you need anything.
4. Should we rent a car or van? Is it hard to get around town?
It used to be very difficult to get around if you didn't know your way through Cancun's streets. Now it is a snap. I recently paid $2 a day to my US cell carrier (Verizon) to use my cell phone in Cancun just as I would back home...text, calls, and most importantly GPS. It works PERFECTLY now in Cancun/Playa del Carmen/ Tulum/ tourist destinations.
We have had guests that have stayed without rentals and they have even written reviews about how cheap and easy it was. However, I like having the freedom to get around when I want to, so I rent a car every time I go to Cancun.
5. Is there food and groceries close? Yes, Scott will make sure you get to the grocery store. Remember, however, that this home is in a real Cancun neighborhood. It is not in a resort. There is a small local restaurant outside our gate which serves local fare and is very good and inexpensive. Puerto Juarez is down the street with restaurants, but in general you will need to grab a cab, at least, if you plan to eat out. There's lots of suggestions Scott can give you.

I am thrilled to be able to offer this property for many to enjoy! I am a pianist and teacher and produce performances of all kinds including theater works where I perform in character as famous composers. Check out a few links of my YouTube performances of Gershwin and Scriabin. Just search 'Michael Yannette' and either of those two composers names. Unfortunately, I don't get to visit my little paradise nearly as much as I would like but I hope to spend more time here as the years go by.
Michael Yannette purchased this house in 2005
In 2005, I took a year long sabbatical and spent some of my time in Cancun. A friend of a friend told me about this little gated community of Bahia Azul. Sixty percent of the development had already been built when I visited it for the first time. Throughout the home, the breeze filled the space with the most incredible feeling. There was a remarkable brick lined cupola - something that I simply had never seen before in the states. The space was open and airy and was well constructed to keep the space cool. But when I got to the rooftop I was absolutely overwhelmed - the ocean views were gorgeous. You could see Isla Mujeres in the distance and THAT BREEZE - INTOXICATING!!! I bought the property pre-construction within the week.
Within one month of my purchase, Hurricane Wilma hit Cancun. I was still living here and endured three terrifying days of that horrible Cat 4-5 storm that stalled over the city. When the storm was over Cancun was devastated!
It would be three years before construction finally would begin again. All of the construction workers had moved to the hotel zone.
The home finally was completed in 2011 and morphed into something that was completely unique in the development. We had an inspiration to add another floor, raise the terrace and add the incredible circular palapa and 'Crow's Nest' with a Bar/BBQ and gorgeous Panamanian hammocks and the result is the most unique property in the development - none other like it - with much more space and custom features. Some things are worth the wait! I am thrilled with the result.
...just wish I could spend more time there. You'll have to enjoy it for me!
I can honestly say I rather be relaxing in one of the hammocks on my rooftop than perhaps anywhere in the world. The terrace is not actually directly on the water like the hotels in the hotel zone but it has a feeling that is so much more private and intimate. It's so quiet up there! It towers above everything and has an incredible 360 view of everything...sunrises and sunsets, the golf course next door, Isla Mujeres, the ocean and hotel zone hotels in the distance.
For a change of pace I relax in the hot whirlpool. I really enjoy it when my 26 year old son comes down with his girlfriend or when other family members come to visit because we are big gamers! We are a board game family so we junk out on games on the game table - a unique little Cancun creation of a circular table with 'pie piece' chairs that fit underneath it. The best part of it is playing games while we watch a Blue Ray on the GRANDE LCD screen and make some munchies in the kitchen. That entire space in on the same floor so it makes being together really easy and fun! If I want some alone time I hide out in my master room which is huge and watch one of the smaller TV's while lounging in the bed. The master is a great space because the entire front of the room is lined with windows so the light is wonderful. Every room in the house has its own mini-split AC so everyone can adjust the AC to their own taste. I went all out when purchasing the beds and bedding. One of the great things about being on vacation and hosting others is feeling like someone can really rest - the beds are very high quality Posturepedic beds with cozy high thread count sheets. I actually SLEEP when I come to Cancun when I really need to rest!
And last but not least, after dreaming about that beautiful brick lined dome cupola for years, I finally built one into the top of the stairwell leading to the terrace. It has a great Spanish chandelier hanging from it and makes me smile everytime I pass it leading to my hammock!
We stayed at this property in Cancun because we needed a place for 16 people to be able to eat and rest comfortably after being on mission work all day each day. It was great to come home to AC, a kitchen where everything works, and comfortable beds to sleep in. If there were ever any little issues, the manager Scott, came over right away to make sure it was taken care of. We have stayed here the last three summers and hope to be there again next year!
Tranquility House was the best vacation spot we've ever had. Our shuttle arrived promptly at the airport to pick us up and Scott was at the house to meet us and show us around. He then gave us a bit of time to settle in before he took us to WalMart and Costco to grab groceries. The home was beautiful and only had minor problems, all of which we showed to Scott and he noted them all. The rooftop became our go-to spot as, even in the hottest of weather, it was cool and comfortable. The home is extremely roomy and all of the bedrooms were huge! The kitchen, while small, was appropriately equipped for cooking in the home, which we did a lot. The rooftop grill was an added bonus and worked well.
The location was perfect for us--minutes to the ferry to Isla Mujeres, el Centro, and the Hotel Zone. The location made perfect sense for our group of 11; 8 adults and 3 older teenagers. The neighborhood was safe and none of us had any problems going out at any time, even in the middle of the night. Grabbing a cab was as easy as walking outside the gates...they were all over. Everyone was able to go and do their own thing at any time, or just sit at the house and chill.
Scott made everything perfect for us! We had some minor snafus (a lost/stolen cell phone, to start) and he went out of his way to help us. While we never found it, his help throughout he process was amazing. He helped with a clogged toilet when no plunger was to be found. He let us know any time he was going to the store to see if we needed anything (more beer???). He also assisted and came through with last-minute transportation requests and ideas for activities. He arranged to have a local professor come over and teach me how to cook authentic cuisine and she stayed with me ALL DAY to perfect these meals. I have brought that knowledge home with me and my family is so thankful for that! I have NEVER seen a property manger who loved his job more than Scott. He made our vacation amazing and we cannot wait to go back.
A few notes if you're a first-time traveler to the area...don't fill your schedule too tightly with excursions. Almost any excursion will take all day due to the length of time it takes to travel to places such as Chichen Itza or Tulum. I will, however, highly recommend the Xplor park. It's fairly new, but it was so much fun. It's an adventure park with zip-lines, amphibious vehicles, underground rivers in which you can swim, an all-you-can-eat buffet, and more.
Awesome house for all 11 adults. We didn't do very much at this place because we were gone to every activities everyday in Cancun, Isla Mujeres and so.We didn't get a chance to hang out at the rooftop terrace. It was really NICE. Great neighborhood area. The property manager, Scott is really helpful and resourceful to every details about Cancun. Anything you need to know about Cancun and anywhere, just ask him! Great communication with him via email. My wife and I personally didn't get a chance to meet him but my group did. They said that he was very nice guy! 5 stars in everything!
Great house, love the transportation package. Would definatly come back.scott was really handful. Took us to rent car and to walmart and loaned us gps. Loved the rooftop terrace and house.
A friend and I took our sons to Cancun and stayed in the Tranquility House. Scott was a phenomenon host! He made us feel comfortable and welcome. He was extremely helpful and went over and beyond to make our stay magnificent!! We will definitely be back!!
The house was perfect for our family vacation during Easter. Before we got there Michael made sure that all of our needs were met and also made sure he had our travel info for the airport pick up and drop off were there on time. It was a nice bonus not to worry about that, and to a whole van for our family. The bedrooms are large, and having personal AC in all the rooms were a bonus. This house is great for a large group, as it could sleep as many as 14 people. Scott was very helpful, he took us to the grocery store to stock up the 1st day and let us use his GPS for the days were we driving to Tulum (We rented a jeep from America Car rental for USD $75 a day and it included all insurance). If you want to explore, I would suggest Playa Delfines in Cancun, Tulum, cenotes in Puerto Morelos, and Isla Mujeres. When we were there, they put in a new grill. My favorite part of the house was def the rooftop. I miss having our morning breakfast up there and our nightly get together hanging out on the hammocks. With all the stairs, I def got a much needed workout. My daughter(4 years old) loved the pool because there is a shallow section for her to stand in and play. The kitchen is large and provided us everything that we need to prepare breakfast and our lunches. For the one lazy day that we had at the house, we played games at the game table, watched DVDs that they had(has a variety of 50 or so DVDs), went to the pool, bbqed and enjoyed the breeze on the rooftop. The neighborhood is safe and gated. If you go by the gate entrance in the morning they feed the coatis bread and about 50 or more come out. One would def benefit from renting a car if you have kids or a large group. Use caution with young kids, because the rooftop has gaps and there are a lot of stairs. My daughter loved running around the rooftop and being on the hammocks, but we had to be on watch. I loved Isla Mujeres, and the ferry is so close and it only takes a 20 boat ride to get there.
