About Linda Perry-Horcasitas

Originally I'm from Mexico but for the past 36 yers I have lived and worked in the DC area. I'm a single mother of 3. My oldest is 23 in the Service, my 22 year old is attending University of Texas and my youngest (19) just graduated from high school. For the past 36 years we have lived in the DC area.

Linda Perry-Horcasitas purchased this villa in 1991

Why Linda Perry-Horcasitas chose Zona Hotelera

There is some truth to the saying that water brings serenity. I love sitting in my balcony watching the Ocean listening to the waves. I have been coming here since my oldest son was 6 months old. It is a great place for kids as it is for adults. It truly is paradise!

What makes this villa unique

The location is great, surrounded by magnificent restaurants and shopping centers. The beach is one of the best if not the best in Cancun! Three doors down from the Ritz.

Beautiful condo, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 6 adults to enjoy our beach vacation. Before our trip and when we arrived, Linda was very helpful answering questions about Mexico and the area. Then, during our stay, the property manager was very helpful and was always available if we needed him. The condo was beautiful and had every amenity we needed, plenty of towels, and any appliance we might need in the kitchen (coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, etc.) The location was great! Close to pool and only steps from the beach. The shopping mall with a grocery store is across the street, and several great restaurants and another mall are within walking distance. Overall, we would definitely recommend Linda's condo!

Amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We loved our visit to Villas Marlin. The condo was a perfect setting for our family's vacation. We will cherish our memories of delicious meals around the beautiful dining room table as we looked out at the turquoise waters of the Gulf. Perfect location with easy access to pool and beach, and steps away from the Kukulkan Plaza shopping center. The condo is homey and comfortable. The view and location sold us on renting this property, but we felt like the description of the decor was not exactly accurate. The property manager, Marquez, was very responsive to any questions. He resolved a broken water heater situation very quickly and turned a potentially disastrous situation into a non issue right away. Very reassuring having him on property.

Location, beach, amenities, this place has it all!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 just came from a 12-day stay at Linda's villa. It is beachfront living at its finest. From our first contact with Linda and throughout our stay, things could not have gone smoother. There is a 24-hr., on-site contact person if you need help with anything. It does help if you know some basic Spanish but not totally necessary. It is in the upscale part of the hotel zone, has a beautiful swimming beach with many lifeguards. Worth noting that the surf was strong at that time of year, but we swam in the ocean every day. For those that don't care for ocean swimming, the complex has 3 pools, rarely crowded. Linda's particular unit is located in a perfect spot; corner with fantastic views and easy access to the main pool, beach, and grand palapa right outside the unit, where my husband would sit each morning and drink his coffee. The entire condominium complex is kept very secure and clean. It was so nice to have the new grocery store in the mall across the street, 3-minute walk to bus stop, taxis outside the complex, police and fire right around the corner, restaurants and shops in either direction. The location of this condo couldn't be better, and contact with Linda was a breeze. We can't wait to return!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

Linda was a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire trip.

The villa had amazing views from the two of the three bedrooms and the common area downstairs. Large beds in the rooms made things very comfortable. The pool was right outside your windows and the beach was amazing. The location next to the mall and the shopping center was so convenient. I also can't forget the proximity to the ATM, bus stop, and taxi stand. Really everything you would want in a vacation house.

The value to price ratio was great.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This condo couldn't be in a better location. It's nowhere near the party zone and it's outside of the congested hotel areas. It sits in on some of Cancun's nicest beaches. On top of that, there is a full grocery store directly across the street. Being as far down the strip as this place is, it's a bit of a long bus ride to get to downtown Cancun but that's a trade off easily worth making given the gorgeous beach location and also that there is a grocery within a two minute walk.

I will be honest, the condo is not as crisp and new as other places I've rented. There are some things that are worn and could use replacing. That said, it's an easy trade off for the view, location, convenience of pool and friendliness of staff at the property.

We encountered a few issues on our first day. I emailed Linda and she responded *immediately* and went above and beyond to help rectify the situation. Though one hopes for a vacation rental without issues, it's a given that from time to time something will happen. It's not necessarily the issue that can make or break a trip rather how it's handled by the owner. Linda was available and reliable and it made a difference for our stay.

Great location, some issues but maybe worth for the comparatively lower price

  • 3 of 5

Villas Marlin is on a beautiful stretch of beach and this condo is steps from a large pool, beyond that the white sand beach. Our kids spent many happy hours in the pool and loved releasing sea turtles at night. Overall our stay was good but there were some inconvenient maintenance issues along the way.

First the pros: Stunning views both upstairs and downstairs. Linda happened to be on site for the first few days so answered our questions as they came up. Very large condo which was great for our family of 5 (kids ages 8, 5 and 3). Beautiful swimming pools which were almost deserted most days. Baby sea turtles to release on the beach at night. Easy to walk to Soriana grocery store across the street and a few good walkable restaurants (El Fish Fritanga was our favorite). Easy to take the bus anywhere else in Cancun.

Cons: This property is competitively priced compared to others in the area, but there were too many corners cut for us to feel satisfied. $250/ night is still a lot and we expected more. We were given the wrong wi-fi password upon arrival. Linda was on site but in a condo quite far away. It was pouring torrential rain and the property is not well lit at night. I spent a good 15-20 minutes searching the property for her condo and had to ask guards for directions, at which point I was soaked to the bone. Finally found it but was still given incorrect information so no wi-fi that night. The next day Linda came in person and helped us figure out the correct password. 2 of the 3 air conditioners in the bedrooms malfunctioned. In one room the air was frigid no matter how high the temp you set it at. Our son simply slept under mounds of covers. In our room the AC worked great some times but during two nights it made a horrible high pitched buzzing sound. We had to turn it off those nights which left us sleeping very poorly as it was very hot during our stay. The glass doors downstairs face a public walkway but the blinds were missing about 25% of the slats. Linda mentioned she was going to have them fixed the next day but no one ever came. Guests are expected to buy their own tp and water once the initial supply runs out. We did not know this in advance. It didn't cost much but seemed odd and was an inconvenience. There is no cleaning or towel change included in the price.

It may be worth choosing this property for the price, but the issues we encountered should be addressed by the owner for a smoother stay.
