Newly renovated in Oct. 2017! We overlook the Sea - not the details! Simply put, this is the BEST view of the Caribbean Sea and the Cancun strip that you can possibly get! There is nothing between you and the ocean except a beautiful sandy white beach! Your view is 180 degrees of pure heaven! This is the view you have always wanted but rarely get! Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. Private! No pool or restaurant noise heard from this unit! You are SAFELY on the second floor in an infrequently travelled area -- not on a busy hallway.
Welcome to your home away from home! We are NOT a hotel; we are individually owned units and as such, each owner is responsible for their own units. Just like your home town, some people take good care of their place and others do not. We DO and we are always updating things! Here you won't find a hotel lobby, bell boys, maids putting chocolates on your pillow, or fancy soaps/shampoos in the bathroom (although I do provide some in case you forgot yours). If you need these kinds of amenities, there are other full service places in Cancun that would suit you better at a price to match! But, if you enjoy feeling like you are staying in someone's private apartment, then you have come to the right place! Once you get the key from our on-site manager, and you open the door to your unit, you are 'home!' Welcome!
Located in a very private section of Building 4, our highly rated CLEAN and SMOKE-FREE studio apartment contains two comfortable Queen size pillow-top beds (sleeps four) with plenty of pillows. Many Mexican resorts have thin mattresses - some are even on concrete slabs or have no box spring. Not ours! We have box springs and nice thick pillow-top mattresses! We also provide newer bedding (sheets/pillow cases).
Our newer granite kitchenette contains:
- Newer (2017) stainless refrigerator/freezer (3/4 of the size of a US fridge)
- Newer (2017) Two burner glass top range
- Stainless Sink
- Electric water cooler
- 12 cup coffee pot
- Keurig coffee maker
- Convection toaster oven
- Electric fry pan
- Quesadilla maker
- Sandwich maker
- Pizza maker
A full-size electric George Foreman grill is available for your use out on the balcony
A granite breakfast bar provides space to prepare and eat meals, play games, or entertain.
A ceiling fan and mini-split air conditioner keeps you comfortable in warmer months, but the breezes from the Sea are fantastic and hearing the ocean's waves at night is the perfect sleep aid during winter months. We also have an oscillating fan for more air movement, if needed.
Clean pots/pans/Corelle dishes/cutlery/spices/barware are all provided so you can leisurely eat in while enjoying the best view in Cancun!
Newly renovated bathroom in Oct. 2017! New mirror, tiles, lighting, granite counter top, and sink! Shower is tiled, and a new shower head provides awesome water pressure! Safety handle and shower mat ensures your safe footing.
Bath, hand towels and wash cloths are provided. A lovely stained glass window adds a quaint Mexican charm to the shower. It creates a lovely glow when viewed from the hallway outside.
We also have for your convenience:
- Flat screen cable TV with Amazon Firestick
- DVD player (bring your own DVD's or use collection of 100+)
- In-room laptop size electronic safe
- Sunbrella balcony chairs
- Free private WiFi
- Iron and ironing board
- Sound machine with various sounds
- Beach chairs and beach umbrella
Freshly painted room & new balcony tiles (2017)
Laundry on-site (fee)
Convenience store (at front gate) sells bread, eggs, butter, tortillas, snacks, soda, beer, etc., as well as water bottles (about $3 USD) to refill your in-room ELECTRIC water cooler.
Our infinity pool (newly renovated in November 2014) with divided wading section for youngsters is surrounded by chaise lounges and palapas (thatched umbrellas for those who want shade). The best spot in the pool is at the edge where you can people watch those on the beach and soak in the sight of the Sea and the sound of the waves. You could stay here all day -- and sometimes people do!
An on-site restaurant and bar (accepts pesos, USD, or credit cards) at pool level serves meals from breakfast to dinner and has a wood fired pizza oven. The restaurant also features a roof top sunning area with a small dip pool (meal/drink purchase required). You can see the dip pool from your balcony. (See photos.)
A swing set/slide on the beach is available for the little ones.
- The condo complex offers gated 24-hour security
- A public bus stop (12.5 pesos per ride or about 85 cents USD) is just outside the front gate with frequent buses running until 4 am
- Taxis readily available and can be called at the security gate. (They arrive in 30 seconds or less!)
See our calendar for daily rate and availability. Rates includes all taxes/fees. The only extra fee -- if you wish to request it -- is for Maid Service at approximately $25 USD per day you require it. Most people do not request maid service, but it is up to you and you might wish to have this service if you are staying longer than a week. Upon arrival, you can let our on-site manager, Carmen, know if you wish to have maid service and which days you require it. (I always pay your exit cleaning.)
An OXXO convenience store (similar to '7 Eleven' stores) across the street offers prepared foods, groceries, beer, snacks, etc., just like convenience stores in the USA, although we like to patronize the store on our property.
Navios restaurant across the street has excellent food and provides a romantic atmosphere with tables out on the lagoon deck or under a large thatched 'palapa.' Prices start at around $17 USD. For a more casual and inexpensive evening, 19.5 KM Burger (also across the street next to OXXO) has great Angus burgers, burritos, fajitas, fish tacos, etc., and also serves breakfast on the lagoon. It is open late. Don't miss these places for at least one 'sunset dinner!' For REALLY authentic Mexican, El Galion, also on the lagoon side, but to the right as you exit the front gates, is a lunchtime favorite of locals. Here you can eat $1 fish tacos and $1 Corona beer with your toes in the sand, right next to the lagoon under a big thatched roof. Don't be surprised if a guitar player serenades you! We can give you more recommendations! I will email you my personally created 30+ page booklet upon receipt of your deposit. In it you'll find all kinds of information about airport transportation, where to eat, what to do, etc. No one gives you this much info! See our Facebook page (search for Kaifesh's Cancun Plaza Condo) that you might wish to join. I post tips and photos, and I invite my guests to do the same.
We have never had problems with water or food quality in Cancun.
Nearby are some other great restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing. The Mayan ruins of El Rey are within walking distance and the new Mayan Museum is also nearby. On the beach you can find parasailing and jet skiing just 90 seconds from your unit. Other water sports and fishing can be arranged as well. Golfing can be found at the Iberostar Golf Course just down the street. (I had a guest hit a hole in one there!) Isla Mujeres is a wonderful day trip that will make you feel like you are a million miles from home (you can get to the Playa Tortuga ferry by bus).
The sea turtles (we have plenty of them!) lay their eggs from end of May to October. You'll see them swimming in the morning hours after they have laid their 100+ eggs on our beach the night before. The hatchlings start to come out of their shells around August to October (45 day gestation time) and it is great fun for young and old to release the babies into the Sea during the evening hours when they have a better chance of avoiding the pelican and sea gull predators. This miracle of nature is something everyone should see!
I hope I have convinced you to come to Cancun. All you need is a bathing suit, beach towel, sunscreen, and a few sundresses/polo shirts & shorts for evening. Even the best restaurants in Cancun allow shorts, but if in doubt, call ahead to find out.
We find this to be a very safe area and we have never had security concerns. My 80 year old parents don't hesitate to ride the bus at night here. Of course, you should not let your guard down just because you are on vacation. Lock your valuables in our electronic safe when not in the room, lock the door when gone, and use the security 'stick' in the track of the sliding door if you want to leave it open for air when not in the room. We have tried to supply you with everything to keep you feeling safe and secure. It is 'overkill' on my end, but I want you to have the perfect vacation with no worries!
Lastly, all Cancun Plaza units are privately owned, and the quality of each unit depends upon each owner. Some invest in their units (as we do) while others don't. Some owners have turned their units over to rental companies whose standards are not worthy of your hard-earned money. Some don't even provide the basics!
Read OUR reviews on VRBO. These are OUR reviews for unit #4203 and not reviews for any other units at Cancun Plaza. (Note, we are NOT affiliated with BSEA Cancun Plaza.)
Don't be fooled! You get what you pay for. If you want the BEST VIEW, we have it! We overlook only the Sea -- not the details that will make your stay memorable. Look no further, you have found paradise!
