This is a truly exceptional downtown location, with an architecture that could be summed up in a merger between a Mediterranean ambience and traditional Mayan influences, surrounded by stunning vegetation. Sak Nah means "white house" in mayan.
This house is the result of a Mexican architect ... these wide open spaces, the high ceiling, the woodwork, the pleasant terrace, this close and exuberant vegetation and the fact that all the corners of the house are rounded, make this unusual a wonderful place to spend a night or more at a very reasonable price!
the guest has access to everything (except room of others ...!)! ... kitchen, fridge, swimming pool ... please, feel free!
Interaction with Guests
I love spending time with my guests ... I know very well this country that I love ... so I can talk and advise you with pleasure ...
as you may have noticed in the pictures, the kitchen is the central element ... let's cook and eat together! But I am also very discreet and very respectful of privacy and the pace of my guests ... everyone lives his life as he wishes here!
The little condominium is surrounded by two lovely parks ... I have lived in many neighborhoods in the city and this one is the most enjoyable...
We can not be more central! Restaurants of all kinds and all prices, supermarkets ... and especially the road to Playa del Carmen and Tulum is just seconds walking .... I tell you that this is the best place for you!
Other Things to Note
I provided you a local phone, if you need...and all my advices and recommendations on any topic ...
rules? those of common sense ... respect, education ... and freedom!
If you are looking for the perfect place to stay in Cancun look no further. Although not on the beach, you are very close to everywhere by a cheap taxi ride. The house itself, as described by everyone else, is gorgeous, minimalist yet homey and warm. Benoit is one of those rare people that has travelled enough and been welcomed in others' homes enough times to know how to make you feel 100% at home. He is knowledgeable, kind, helpful yet never invasive or pushy. The second night we stayed, a large home cooked meal was prepared by us all (well mainly Benoit and another one of his guests) and we stayed up until seven talking, dancing (at least the girls), and just having a perfect finish to our time in the area. We didn't particularly look forward to staying in Cancun itself (we originally had planned no nights there but upon insistence from our very good friends Luis and Maria who said that we would love the place we decided to try it out) but now we definitely have a reason to go back. On top of that, there is a Churrascaria (called Bovino's) that is within walking distance that is absolutely delicious (highly approved by my Brazilian wife). Seriously, if you have the chance of booking a few nights here, don't miss out.
La casa de Benoit es muy muy hermosa, además de estar bien ubicada y ser muy cómoda.
El cuarto tiene baño privado, balcón y vestidor, el colchón es muy cómodo y todo resulta confortable.
Benoit no estaba pero nos recibieron unos amigos muy amables, quienes nos recibieron muy bien aunque llegamos por la noche.
Airbnb at it's best!!
Great apartment, even better than the pictures! Very comfortable and clean. Benoit was super helpful (travel advise); he made us feel as staying with friends. Would highly recommend to fellow travellers.
Bon accueil de Benoit et de ses colocataires, la maison est très agréable dans le centre de Tulum, et proche de tout en taxi pour une vingtaine de pesos (Ferry pour Isla Mujeres, terminal de bus etc), point de chute sympa pour 1 nuit ou 2 à l'arrivée de l'aéroport avant de prendre la route pour visiter le reste du Yucatan!
Generally, I'm a picky guy. However, the stay in Benito's house was flawless, with nothing to complain. I'm gonna leave my review in Chinese due to the relatively fewer (if any) Chinese comments on AirBnB. Please check it with (website hidden) translator or ask your next Chinese guest about the meaning :)
這個地方確實不好找 離酒店和沙灘都遠 但你不應因此錯過 不僅因為價錢合理（空間巨大 乾淨 包泳池） 更因為 能和這屋子裡的歐洲行者們交上朋友
第一晚就嚐到了比利時女孩Kundry的美味Pasta 還有他們的大狗Mojo的熱情歡迎 除了美食 還有不停給你斟滿的啤酒 當然前提是 你得有趣 自覺洗碗 且在酒喝光後自願出門買上
才離開一周 我便懷念 在坎昆夜風中微醺著給這幫異鄉人分享中國民樂「小河淌水 龔琳娜版」 並和Benito激烈地從Tibetan issue爭論到Mexico politics的'往事' 當然這些都只是欣賞各國音樂大餐時的一點辛辣佐料罷了
但它們只屬於我 我不會在這裡分享給你 因為我相信 你亦會收獲同樣精彩的故事
We had a fantastic stay at Benoit´s place. Beautiful house, great host. Travelling with our baby son we felt very welcome and we definitely recommend staying here!
