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.

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.

The location is very good, the staff friendly and helpful. We unfortunately had very windy weather and we were not permitted to go into the ocean. The condo itself had a very good view of the ocean. Most basic kitchen supplies where there but that is all. We had big problems with getting hot water for the Showers and having a usable Internet connection. Working closely with the owner we eventually got things working. For the price I would have expected everything to be working in the first place. The owner was very pleasant to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments. Normally you can go in the water even when the red flags are out, but you are not allowed to go in very far -- perhaps you didn't understand that. We don't think your remark about "basic kitchen supplies" is fair -- the kitchen is excellently equipped, much better than you would expect for a rental, and in fact it is equipped for our own use. Hot water is not a problem; however, the pipes are long and you have to be patient. The internet is rarely a problem for our guests. We believe that you did not read the documentation that I sent to you.

Cute condo and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great experience! The condo was nicely decorated and location was great! Gil was awesome and made it known that if anything was needed to contact him via email/phone or Landy the housekeeper. If you want to not worry about where to stay in Cancun I would highly recommend this condo. Me and my family enjoyed it soooooo much that we will definitely be back. Thank you again Gil!!! :)

Great condo, would definetly go back

  • 5 of 5

Gil and Lilly's condo was great, clean & well maintained and more than comfortable and enough space for my family of 4.

We all enjoyed ourselves, the pool was always clean and deck furniture was in good condition. Short walk to the white sandy beach was superb.

Grocery shopping couldn’t have been closer and more convenient and public transit was convenient.

Landy was always very accommodating and pleasant and Gil was very quick at responding to questions.

We would definitely stay in your condo again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Beautiful Place in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with three of my friends for one week. This place is very clean, well taken care of, has WiFi, located in a nice/clean resort complex, and is a beachfront property. The location is also perfect since it’s only a few minutes walking to a huge supermarket. In addition, what really sets this place apart is the homeowner Gil. He provided a very useful instruction packet prior to our arrival with information about the condo and the area with very useful recommendations. He was also very easy to reach via email or phone with any additional questions we had throughout our stay. He was very nice, responsive and organized. Thanks Gil for a great stay.
