Great house. Very comfortable for my family of three adults and two children.

  • 5 of 5

Fairly easy walk to tapas restaurant on Bonampak Ave. which we loved. Never did find the bus stop. House had everything we needed. We love, love, LOVED the pool. House manager, Rocio, told us everything we needed to know. It was a totally wonderful experience.

This is an older home, but it is spacious, well maintained, and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We just loved staying here. We really enjoy our privacy, and it was perfect for that. There are neighbours on both sides and at the back, but they could not see into the house, and particularly the pool was completely private. We could walk to the core of Cancun in about 10 minutes, did not need a car, and just loved the pool. We were in it at least 4 times a day. We were surprised by the number of beautiful parks in this area, and most of our daily walks were in the shade.

Rocio, who looks after the place, was very helpful and told us about the area, and where to walk. We just stayed a week, and are hoping to come back for 2 weeks in 2 years again. It was incredibly peaceful, and we got to truly rest and relax in comfort.

Comfy and Safe

  • 4 of 5

We just stayed for four (4) days and were very impressed with everything they had to offer except for the TV. The only service you get is through their wireless internet, so we had to watch Netflix if we wanted to watch anything other than NetTV, which is basically a TV version of YouTube. This by far is not to be a negative, as most travelers into Cancun shouldn't go there to watch TV, right? I'm just enlightening anyone on what to expect.

Everything in the house was very clean and everything worked, so we were happy. The upstairs shower will overflow on you but no worries as it easily drains into the drain on the bathroom floor.

I suggested to them to purchase new chairs for the pool area, as the ones they had were getting old (from constantly being in the sun). I would also recommend to them to mark the depth of the pool so that future renters know how deep it is. The water was too cold for us to venture into, so we can't tell you...

Rocio was great and will respond to you whenever needed (via WhatsApp).

Just What We Wanted

  • 5 of 5

This is an older Spanish-style home that has been well kept and is in the downtown area of Cancun. Rocio was amazingly helpful. She quickly attended to any questions I had about the house, and even answered questions I had about the area. The house was comfortable and we felt very secure. It was in close proximity to shops, restaurants, and public transportation. I loved that it was quiet, and since we weren't in the hotel zone, we had many more opportunities to practice speaking Spanish with the locals. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Scenery & Wonderful Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Cancun and in the rental home. Our hostess was both friendly and helpful. On the day we arrived she showed us around the entire home. She made sure to show us how everything worked, numbers to call for assistance such as medical or taxi, and shared with us some great locations to visit and dine. She also made herself available to us if we needed anything.

The house has a beautiful old world charm with all the amenities of a modern home. Every room in the house is spacious and nicely decorated. The kitchen has a great 6 burner stove, off the living room is a great computer space or den, there are extremely large windows throughout the house that provide abundant natural light, and the rooftop pool is quite large and is laid out perfectly with a nice outdoor balcony/deck.

Our family of 5 stayed for a month and loved the location. We have 2 daughters that loved the pool and the park across the street. We decided not to rent a car as we were able to walk to numerous restaurants, the convenience store, the market, the bus station, and the grocery store easily. My 64 year old mother also had a wonderful time and was able to enjoy walking around town with us.

If you are traveling with a dog then the perimeter fence will be perfect for letting your dog out to get some fresh air. The pool has regular maintenance twice a week and you can have maid service (for a small fee) if desired. Young children (with supervision) can also enjoy this home as there is a poolside gate and a gate at the top of the steps (along with a baby gate) that can be used at the bottom.

Overall, this was a wonder vacation stay in a wonderful home, with a wonderful hostess :)

We would stay here again in a heartbeat and if ever this home becomes a long term rental please let me know.

Thank you, for the great stay

The house was so spacious and unbelievable.

  • 5 of 5

The house was so spacious and unbelievable because it was exactly like the pictures. Although finding the place at first was little hard but we found it thanks to Rocio, with directing us. She was available at all times and very helpful with things we can do. The only two things I could say is that the upstairs was hot in the morning because of the sun beaming through in the morning but didn't bother me or my sister which is where we stood, in the upstairs room with our doors closed. And the another thing was that the air conditioners was dropping water but we made aware to Rocio, hopefully it can be fix. Overall we enjoyed the house and if we had the opportunity again to come back we will rent this house. And the pool was just the best although we didn't get to enjoy it much because we were mostly out lol. Also, we got great prices at this place named Atempa's Tour Operator, for Chichen Itza, Xel-Ha and Xochimilco. Amazing time at this house hope to be back soon.
