  • Great home base for exploring or just hanging out.

    "We stayed at Paul and Cheryl's home in Cancún for 10 days with our 3 children (11, 8 & 6). I really don't have anything bad to say. It was a fantastic place in every respect. We try to vary our vacations - one day on for adventure, one day off for chilling by the pool or at the beach. Day 1: Chill by the pool. We had the place to ourselves for several hours. BEAUTIFUL, clean pool with lots of security. Restaurant at pool makes amazing quesadillas at great prices. Piña Coladas for the kids (no booze, of course). Everyone from guests to residents to employees were so so friendly and helpful. Made friends with an iguana dubbed Juan by the kids who hangs just at the beginning of the path from the garage that leads to the pool -- loves eating flowers. Day 2: Drove to Chichen Itza/EkBalam and Valladolid (cool colonial town) for the day. It was about 2 hours each way on the toll road, which is pricey, but well worth it. We were exhausted, but loved every minute. The kids climbed all over the ruins at EkBalam, found bats & didn't want to leave. Day 3: Ferry to Isla Mujeres, which is so close -- North Beach there was beautiful & the children really loved the golf cart tour of the island & the ferry ride itself. Day 4: Xcaret -- a must. Day 5: More down time at the pool. Day 6: Coba and Tulum -- amazing places. At Coba, we rented bikes & rode around the site, climbing ruins & generally wreaking havoc -- kids LOVED it. Tulum is very touristy and crowded, but the site was fantastic & definitely worth it. Day 7: Beach at the Marriott MagnaCasa -- we bought a day pass to the beach/pool area for $100 and got $80 worth of restaurant vouchers, use of all/any beach chairs & umbrellas and the towel service. Day 8: Our last glorious day at the pool. We bought groceries at the WallMart down the road which was so helpful. Went to the LDS church (Barrio Cancún) which was just 5 minutes away on Sunday and even took the kids to see Cinderella (with Spanish subtitles) at the mall nearby our first night. The actual condo has incredibly comfortable beds, plenty of room for 6 and some very handy perks (sand toys, beach and pool towels, COOLERS!! THANK YOU FOR THE COOLERS!!) The washer/dryer were so convenient. As I said -- nothing bad to say. Thank you so much, Paul for taking care of us. It was our first international vacation with the children and it was absolutely spectacular."

  • Grand Mayan Family Getaway

    "We just returned from our Grand Mayan trip. Ed was great with helping us with all of the details for a fantastic vacation. Everything about our trip was enjoyable from the time we checked in to the time we left. The rooms and property we very nice and the staff was top notch. The overall experience exceeded our expectations and there was not ONE time that the Grand Mayan staff did not solve any issue or answer question that we had. Again, thank you Ed for helping our family enjoy a most memorable vacation at a magnificent resort."

  • Just what we love

    "Fran and Roberts' studio is just what we love. Very nice clean, comfortable place with everything we need. Absolutely spectacular view of the sea! Cancun Plaza is well maintained and we feel very safe here. Onsite restaurant, Casa del Mar, serves delicious food, reasonably priced with a panoramic view of the sea. A small onsite store just inside the entrance gate sells snacks and very cold beer. Easy to catch transit buses right out on the blvd can take you up and down the hotel zone. Comforting to know our friendly landlords are nearby. We mostly like to play in the warm, clear water of the sea. Pool is also very nice. Twenty minute walk down the beach past Club Med to Punta Nizuc and you can snorkel from the shore. Thank you, Fran and Robert, for sharing such a wonderful place. Our memories will help warm us the rest of the cold Maryland winter."

  • Paradise only 4 hours away

    "We've been going to Cancun, staying at Villas Marlin for about 20 years. Due to retirement, property sales, etc we've stayed at multiple different condos. This was by far the BEST! Aileen's condo was not only spacious (twice as much room as typical Villas Marlin), clean, and very comfortable, it was steps from the pool and the beach. My husband and I are in our early 50's and traveled with his parents who are in their late 70's. There was more than enough space for the 4 of us to "live" together for 2 weeks. The location couldn't be better. Cancun's best shopping is either across the street or 2 blocks away. Kukulcan Mall (right behind Villas Marlin) has a new grocery store that is awesome! A couple miles down the road (north) there is a high end grocery store that rivals the best gourmet stores in the states. There are multiple GREAT restaurants within walking distance. This is the first year we didn't rent a car and we never missed it. Make sure you go to Lima (literally across the street) and La Habituela (right next door to Lima). Best coconut shrimp is at Fish Fritanga (next door north of La Habituela). Aileen's condo afforded maximum spoilage at a bargain price. Ledy is simply the best. If I could take home one souvenir, it would have been her! She kept the condo absolutely spotless and even did our laundry! She offered to cook for us and while her English is somewhat limited, there was never any problem conversing with her. The poolside grill was awesome too-many days we'd skip lunch at the condo and just order guacamole and a pina colada for less than 7.00 US! The staff at Villas Marlin was always friendly and courteous. I felt like they welcomed us as though we were owners. Aileen was awesome to do business with. She was timely with her responses, great at answering questions, and even emailed to make sure we got in OK and to see if we were happy or if there was anything she could do for us. We will definitely be back, and we will definitely be renting from Aileen again. If you have a choice-rent this condo! You won't regret it!"
