Rude and aggressive property manager
I stayed here for a month and a half during coronavirus lock down. I was constantly harrassed via whats app about my whereabouts, the owner was paranoid and spying on us via the cameras around the house and gardener. Their conduct was completely inappropriate to a level of harrassment. When I left the house I was treated very rudelt by the property manager, who insisted there were 3 beach towels and not 2, then proceeded to send me angry and aggressive videos about using pantry items such as sugar and coffee filters that she had told us we could use and other guests had left behind. I was there for a month and half and I sent money voluntarily above and beyond the initial arrangement to offset additional electricity costs for being home all day during lockdown. The property manager is incredibly rude and inappropriate and had absolutely no reason to be so aggressive and harrass me with her rudeness. Beware. Also, neighborhood is sketchy and I did not feel comfortable alone in the house at night.
First Trip to Cancun
The house and grounds are great. Lety, the property manager, showed us the neighborhood, where to shop, etc. She's terrific. We're not beach people so we wanted to stay in town. Downtown Cancun, while lively, is a little beat up and not that interesting to visit. We took taxis the first several days and they are readily available. We later rented car which gave us more mobility. (The property has a great place to park a car.)(My wife had recently broken her leg.) Loved everything about the place except the location...though there is a wonderful restaurant right across the street.
Tirso (owner) and Lety (manager) were super attentive and took care of us for every detail. The area is a little far from the beach, but there are buses tgat take you everywhere and are very close by. The house is a small paradise and the pool is a plus!
Lety also took the time to take us around to get us oriented and helped us with any questions we had
Thank you both so much!
Could not have been more perfect!
We stay at a lot of VRBO properties, and have a condo that we rent out ourselves -- so we've seen from 'meh to great...I think this place exceeds GREAT! Lety, the manager does a great job of making that true.
Understand what you're renting -- you're not on the beach, you're not in the hotel zone -- that is exactly what we wanted, and we wanted to wander and enjoy the food in the park, and enjoy some local smaller restaurants.
Everything about the trip was perfect, and Lety even went over the top with some flowers to celebrate our anniversary.
If you're going to stay in this area and do business locally, plan to speak SOME spanish, and have smaller bills (pesos) with you. Let Lety line up your transport -- the company was fabulous and a great deal...I didn't coming in, and I did leaving -- hers was better! :-) We will be back when we can, great spot, wonderful anniversary weekend!
My friend was in Cancun to have some dental work done and we didn’t want to stay in the hotel zone. This house was absolutely perfect for us! We spent most mid afternoons in the private pool catching up on our reading. The house had everything we needed and Letti made us feel immediately at home. The rooms were super comfortable and the backyard really is spectacular. We enjoyed meeting the gardener As we attempted to communicate with our limited language skills. We still managed to have a few laughs.
We enjoyed walking down to Las Palapas Park To experience the locals with their families. The restaurant and bar overlooking the park, crustacean Cancun (name I think) Had the best margaritas we had and food was also delicious. We may have become regulars LOL. The prices were incredibly cheap. We also enjoyed La Chouabula Across the street. One of my favorite things was a cooking class, offered through Airbnb experiences or trip adviser. Cancun eats is the name I think. The chef was wonderful and we went to market 23 to buy The food and learn about local items. Then we went to a local restaurant For the cooking class which was hands-on, and got to get behind the bar and make margaritas ourselves. A day trip to Isle Majures racing around on a golf cart and taking in all the street art completed our excellent trip. There is a second park close to the house that we stumbled upon a wonderful local dance on Sunday night. We heard they have free dance lessons in the park so you should look into that if you’re there on a weekend. When I told people I was going to Cancun everybody said “be safe“. I have never felt safer, and ironically everyone I know who goes to the hotel zone says they are offered drugs and prostitutes, we were never offered anything once. Everybody smiled and greeted us graciously.. A vendor at market 23 that we had bought grilled chicken from even left his stand to put us on the bus to Isle Majures, waiting With us for at least 10 minutes. He refused a tip, said we were his friends.
You will not be sorry if you book this house! I would love to go back someday.
