Beautiful and clean apartment. In particular Elsa has been super nice and welcoming ... she has been truly invaluable! Thanks again for everything!!!
Francisco and Miya were easy to connect with through email and whatsapp before and during my stay in their lovely home. This is a secure building community (24 hour guard to welcome you in) and the hosts had a neighbour check in with us to ensure we had what we needed (as they were away for work). Miya and Francisco have a lovely home with a private backyard, big kitchen, and lots of living space. There was a great breeze that blows throughout the place and this was far more preferable to relying on air conditioning. The home was clean and secure - towels, soap and toiletries were left for us. Also a 20L water jug which was AMAZING! A quiet neighbourhood, most days we had the pool to ourselves, and on a couple of occasions shared it with a few, friendly children. It was always clean.
If you don't mind walking, we found that a car was not necessary. The buses run about every 2-5 minutes 4 blocks away and they all take you to Cancun centro. It was 2 busses to the hotel zone - about 25 minute commitment, and 16 pesos; and of course there are taxis everywhere.
Thank you for welcoming us into your home Miya and Francisco
We had a little trouble contacting the neighbour , (Elsa), who held the key as she did not respond to SMS or e mail, but used a different system called "WhatsApp" that we hadn't heard of. Once the host made contact and explained this, all was well. We had a little trouble finding the house, but Elsa met us together with her lovely 15 year old son Bruno, who spoke beautiful English and took us to it.
The house was very clean, with comfortable beds, towels and soap provided, and in a safe gated community with a security guard. We had a car which you needed to go anywhere as there was nothing within walking distance. We really missed having aircon and found it very hot, so would not return for that reason. The pool was nice, but busy as shared with the whole community and only one pool chair so no chance to relax and chill out for our final afternoon before flying home.
We booked this very last minute as the original reservation we had made was cancelled by the host at short notice, so we were very grateful that our booking was accepted by these hosts.
We had a really good holiday. The house was nice and clean and it is located in a nice private residential community and we felt very safe and the neighbours are very kind and our contact was nice too.
Hola Francisco, todo muy bn la casa y el conjunto agradable. Sin embargo para reservas superiores a una semana es importante contar con aseo, cambio tendidos y la TV a nosostros despues de la 2da semana nos hizo mucha falta. Por lo demas super bn elsa muy pendiente y nos ayudo hasta donde pudo. Muchas gracias
A good, clean home in a residential community. Francisco was easy to communicate with over the Internet. He even sent me a google map to get there. The place is as described and photos are accurate. The people who manage the apartment for him are very nice and helpful.
Francisco and Miya's place was great for us during our stay. It is in a quiet gated community away from the Hotel Zone in Cancun, which wasn't an issue for us as we were able to get a couple of buses around from nearby.
We had no hot water the first day because the external gas heater was not lit, but this was quickly fixed when the hosts were notified.
The place itself was basic but comfortable and had everything we needed for our few days of travel. The neighbourhood dogs did bark quite a bit late at night and were the only annoying thing we had to deal with, but this is no fault of Francisco or Miya.
Overall I would recommend this place to anyone on a budget who is wishing to see the real Cancun away from the tourist hotspots - we even got to see a large night market in the neighbourhood while we were there, which was fantastic.
I would advise though that people staying here be savvy and resourceful with public transport or have access to a vehicle unless you are willing to spend a bit more to get taxis around, due to its location away from downtown and the Hotel Zone.
