Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a lovely stay with Marek and Carmen. We stayed 3 nights in Feb 2014, they were excellent hosts. They welcomed us with open arms and made us feel like we were part of the family. They offered great advice about what to see there and to eat in around Cancun. We can't wait to return to Cancun!
    We are very grateful for this experience that we will never forget.

    With our most sincere gratitude

  • Marek & Carmen were great hosts! They were good humoured, friendly and respectful throughout our stay, and were always keen to share food, drink and stories. Their local knowledge and willingness to share their country with us meant that we always had something to do, and that we saw things many tourists might miss out on (like a great local market and some small, local ruins). Their dogs were so cute and funny, too!

    Their home is in a great location. Staying with Marek & Carmen gave us a unique holiday experience. I would recommend it to everyone!

  • Our hosts were extremely helpful and knowledgable! They picked us up at the airport, took us out for an authentic Mexican dinner, drove us to the ferry to Isla Mujeres and to the downtown car rental! They even gave us their bedroom as the room we rented was not large enough for my husband and I to share! Their two dogs were very sweet and extremely well behaved. We can't say enough good things about their hosting. The only blip was the lack of working air conditioning, but they assured us they were trying to get it up and running. They have a small place but it is very comfortable. We would highly recommend their home to anyone wanting to stay away from the tourist area and in an authentic Mexican home.

  • I stayed with Marek & Carmen for almost 2.5 weeks, and I had such an amazing time staying with them as well as hanging out with them. They go extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable staying in their lovely place, and they are genuinely a nice, genuine and friendly couple!

    Carmen drove me around Cancun a few times, and I enjoyed hanging out with her and exploring Cancun with someone knowledgeable about the cultures & history.

    Thank you for making my stay in Cancun so pleasant!

  • Karmen&Marek put a lot into their role as hosts. With them you get more than just a room. They told us a lot about Cancun and Mexico, they recommended restaurants and places to visit, they made us discover some special Mexican products and they prepared breakfast for us.
    They propose to pick you up from the airport for a certain amount of money and on the way they show you around in Cancun.
    The room and the apartment are nice. The bed is more for one person than two but ok for a couple :-).
    Thank you vey much Karmen and Marek!

    Karmen&Marek sont très investis dans leur rôle de hôte. Avec eux c'est plus qu'une chambre que vous louez. Ils nous ont parlé de Cancun et du Mexique, nous ont recommandé des restaurants, endroits à visiter, nous ont fait goûter des produits locaux...ils nous ont même préparé un petit déjeuner.

    Ils proposent de venir vous chercher à l'aéroport pour une vingtaine de dollars et sur le chemin ils vous montrent un peu de Cancun.
    La chambre et l'appartement sont sympathiques. Le lit est plus pour une que pour deux personnes mais pour un couple c'est ok :-).
    Merci beaucoup Karmen&Marek!

  • Marek and Carmen are delightful people, and we enjoyed getting to know them a bit. They did everything possible to make our stay pleasant. Great hosts!

  • Carmen and Marek are amazing, they helped me out a lot. They recommended me where to go, where to eat, how to get there and that's what made my stay in Cancún (and Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Chichen Itza and Isla Mujeres) worthwhile. So I got to see a lot, even outside of Cancún.
    They drove me around Cancún quite often, picked me up when I got lost and helped me to get Muffin a Microchip - which wasn't so easy after all.
    Muffin (my pug) loved it too, she felt like at home :)
