About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Caribbean Sea View, Steps From The Beach (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy paradise in this newly renovated luxury condominium, steps from the beach, professionally designed and decorated, and ideally located in Cancun's hotel zone in the Villas Marlin Condominium complex.

This charming villa is modern and cozy with a flair of the Yucatan and designed for your enjoyment, comfort and convenience. You can admire the view of the sea from the living and dining areas, kitchen and bedroom.

The Villas Marlin complex has 3 pools (including a kids' pool), whirlpools, mini market, laundry service, tennis court, and 24-hour manned security with gated, controlled entry and a very friendly staff.

The Villas are located in a quiet area directly behind the upscale Kukulkan Plaza shopping mall. The famous 'La Isla' Shopping Village is a short walk away. This huge, unique, 'open air' mall offers a large variety of restaurants, cafes, shops, a movie complex , aquarium and a food court overlooking the lagoon. You are only steps away from bank, restaurants, taxi stop and the bus stop used by most tourists.

Renting a car is not needed -- taxis are readily available, and the bus service is excellent, will take you anywhere you want to go for a small bus fee.

About Owners

We are an American couple who fell in love with the beauty of the Caribbean sea and the white, soft sandy beaches of Cancun. My husband recently retired, and I am an Interior designer. After spending several winters in Cancun at the Villas, we decided to purchase a villa and we completely renovated it. We are sure you will enjoy staying at our villa as much as we do.

My family and I absolutely loved the condo. It is very comfortable and clean. Landy came to clean up one day for us. By the way another perk with this property she is amazing. The location was perfect in the shopping mall is a grocery store just a short walk across the street. The beach is gorgeous. Their is a lifeguard on duty. Also, the pool area is well maintained. I defiantly look forward to staying here again. The Valenzuela Family

The building itself is a bit tired but out condo was very nice and newly renovated.

  • 4 of 5

Happy with everything other that hot water for showering. The hot water would take way to long then sometimes when it finally started up it would stop a minute later while standing in shower. Fix that and perfect.

Easy excess from pool to beach and close enough to everything needed.

Store owner in condo is a super nice Greece fellow!

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed the condo. So sorry that you did not contact us about the hot water. If you had contacted us by phone (which we provide for free) or by email (using the wifi that we provide for free) we could have helped you with this. Also, you had documentation that we provide to everyone that included instructions about how to keep the hot water flowing in the shower. For reasons such as this we ask that our guests review the documents that we provide. Hot water taking a long time? This is something that is very difficult to avoid -- we have experienced that to some degree with every home that we have lived in here in the U.S., and now it is the worst that it has ever been in our home that is less than 10 years old. So the fact this happens in our Mexican condo is not surprising.

A great place to stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at this comfy condo with three of my sisters. We really enjoyed our stay. It's location is ideal, with shopping center and groceries right across the street and gorgeous beach and pool/deck right there!! Great place to relax on patio in the mornings with a coffee, overlooking the ocean while listening to the roar of the waves.

The owners were very helpful and quick to respond to any inquiries.

Landy was eager to help in any way, and helped restore the internet when it was out.

Another great convenience was the free long distance phones, to Canada, USA, and even local calls in Mexico.

I would not hesitate to stay here again!.

Good Quality at an Exceptional Price

  • 5 of 5

Villas Marlin is an older, established complex that is situated centrally in the Cancun hotel zone. The complex is well-staffed and secure. The property is private so there is no harassing "hawking" from beach vendors. The pools and public areas are well-maintained and clean. Our unit was updated with marble counter tops, reliable appliances, sufficient dinnerware and comfortable mattresses. The weekly cleaning service was exceptional. The owners contacted us to make sure that our needs were being met. A supermarket across the street and a bank next door are always a plus for long term vacationing. We enjoyed our stay at Villas Marlin #430 and hope to return in the future.

Lovely condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family of four. Plenty of room for all, clean, and well equipped. The pictures of the condo are accurate. Lovely views from the balcony. Pool area was great. The supermarket in the mall behind the villas made things really easy, as did the little shop downstairs for juice and beer. Best of all, Gil was extremely helpful and responsive to all enquiries. For example - the main TV broke down late one evening - not a big deal, there are two others! - but Gil and Landy had the TV replaced within a day. My damage deposit was returned within a few days of our departure. I would return, and would recommend this condo.

If you like to look at a rooftop

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here last year and were disappointed that the view of the ocean is beyond about 70 feet of rooftop and AC units. The property in general is kind of worn looking and a bit dismal for our taste.
