What could have been

  • 2 of 5

We were counting down the days, looking forward to some down time as a family. We got lost on out way to the rental. The property manager was in a meeting and had sent a friend to let us into the property. She was not available to respond to texts and we had no number for her friend.

When we finally arrived at the property, we received keys and were instructed to keep all doors locked at all times. There were multiple locks on the front door, back door, pool door and balcony doors. We could open the doors towards the inside to let air in but we couldn't go out onto the balconies due to huge locks on the inner doors.

The property manager did come a few hours later. She was kind, showed us around and suggested a few restaurants. She warned us about the construction happening next door but said they promised not to start too early or work too late. These construction workers hammered and drilled away every day of the week, even over Easter weekend. Every day, they would take breaks and lie down all over the sidewalk in front of our home. When we first arrived, they watched us swimming from the rooftop of the adjacent building, grinning and commenting to one another which was creepy and made our daughters uncomfortable. They started early and finished late each night. On a few occasions, we heard stuff crashing in the middle of the night.

We found dead cockroaches in the dining room on our first day and a few live ones by our last day. The ceiling fan in the kitchen was filthy. The couch in the additional room had legs that just fell off. The bedding was cheap and the pillows were flat. Our daughter's bed was missing one leg and another leg on the opposite side kept falling out. The upstairs toilet was leaking. We contacted the property manager and she sent the pool boy to fix it. We had to wait an extra day to have it fixed due to Easter holidays. The dining room table is all chipped and damaged and no one has bothered to bolt the top down so we kept having to stand without putting pressure on the table to avoid dumping everything onto the ground. There is a hotel behind the house, their courtyard is connected to ours. On our first night, they were singing out loud, on the back deck, playing music. We were trying to put the kids to bed.

The positives: the pool, the playground across the street, the dog park up the street, daily garbage pick up, proximity to stores and restaurants. The pool guy came twice/ week and fixed stuff as needed.

Absolutely lovely place to stay in Cancun

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! Very close to the ADO bus station, the R1 line to the hotel/beach district, and plenty of great places to eat/explore. The house itself is beautiful, and the architecture is charming - plus, what could beat a rooftop pool? Will definitely be staying here again if it's available next time I'm in Cancun!

Ok for the price.

  • 3 of 5

The house didn’t have any frills, which was ok with us, and it did have a lot of character and charm. The host, Rocio, was also very kind and accommodating. The reason we knocked off a couple of stars is because of the noisy construction throughout the day (which made pool time less enjoyable); the lack of hot water in the upstairs shower; and that there were very few amenities, such as beach towels and paper towels. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay, and the price can’t really be beat!

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).
