“Carmen was a consummate hostess who had thought of every detail to make the trip comfortable. The 360 views of the property were amazing, the pool clean and her proximity to the beach a treat. In addition, there was a restaurant on the property from which to enjoy seaside breakfasts, lunches and dinner. The experience at Carmen's lovely home made for a wonderful beginning to our vacation. We would highly recommend her place.”
Carmen's reviewsAs a host (10)
“The unit is nice and it has a unique position as the penhouse of the entire condo complex but what was truly magical was the large balcony overlooking both the ocean and bay. Absolutely stunning. ”
“We had a great trip to Mexico. And for staying in busy Cancun, this was a haven! The views are really great and we spent a lot of time out on the balcony. The only thing to be aware of is that you need to carry your luggage up the last two flights of stairs as the elevator only goes to the 4th floor. Apart from that, everything was easy. Thanks again Carmen.”
“We had the most amazing week at Carmen and Filipe’s home! The communication with Carmen was really good and easy since our first contact. Carmen was super responsive and quick to reply to all our needs and queries. The flat itself is spacious and beautifully decorated. The bed is comfortable and the views are to die for… Everyday we enjoyed the breathtaking views of the sunrise over the sea and the sunset over the lagoon. The location of the flat was perfect for us and well away from the crazy tourist areas. The beach in front of the flat felt like a piece of paradise… It was very easy to get around and the public transport in front of the door that takes you everywhere. Luckily, we had the opportunity to meet Carmen, Filipe and their adorable son Bo when they passed by Brussels on their way back home. We had a lovely afternoon together and they are such great people! Thank you for everything guys! We very much hope to meet you again another time! ”
“Filip and Carmen have a lovely and very comfortable home with fantastic views of the beach! They were extremely hospitable hosts and were helpful in every desirable way. We had a very wonderful stay in Cancun!”
“Carmen and her husband's home is absolutely stunning! I celebrated my birthday there in May and couldn't have asked for a more incredible place to stay! They were both so delightful, accommodating, and communicative. The location of their home was perfect, and the views just couldn't get any better. Truly just an A+ experience!!! ”
“Had a dream holiday in Carmen's amazing luxurious penthouse in one of the most beautiful locations in the world! The penthouse is decorated to a really high standard with marble floors throughout and a huge balcony overlooking the white sand beach, waves and pool. You will probably be a lot more comfortable in this amazing penthouse than in any 5 star hotels nearby. There are Extra and Oxxo convenience stores nearby (few mins walk) which were really useful if you wish to pick up a coffee, snack or drinks for the beach. There is also a good restaurant/bar with varied menu that was inexpensive, small convenience shop and laundry facilities in the grounds of the apartment block so it is ideal! I'd also recommend Navios restaurant a few mins walk down the road on the opposite side for an evening meal as it is in a beautiful setting amazing views. As it was very hot when we traveled to Cancun (late June) we went shopping and for spa treatments to avoid midday sun. I would recommend downtown Harmony spa, Av Xcaret Plaza las Palmas local B3 if you are travelling on a budget. It was only $12 for pedicure & $22 for a 50 min massage and the treatments were excellent quality and the facilities were clean and nice. Next door to this spa is a really good sushi restaurant called Sushi Ken which again is affordable and excellent quality. For affordable shopping Las Plazas Outlet downtown near Home Depot. Plaza Kukulcan is a nearer shopping mall to the penthouse which has a really good supermarket inside it if you wish to buy ingredients to cook at home. Plaza la Isla Mall is very close, upmarket but also very nice to browse around with many shops. I'd definitely recommend travelling by bus, they come every few minutes and only cost 10.50 pesos and can be flagged down from the road outside the apartment block. Carmen was a pleasure to deal with and her communication was always very quick and helpful. We followed her tip of using the super shuttle from the airport and found the penthouse easily as per her instructions. My friend and I were very sad to leave this penthouse and definitely want to come back some day. I can't recommend it highly enough! :) ”
“Carmen and her husband are great! They have a little son who is adorable!!! It was a great experience knowing them!!!”
“Endroit de vacances exceptionnel, vue 360° unique, transport en commun peu coûteux pour aller faire l'épicerie, soit à 10 min, 20 min. au choix, et le centre-ville de Cancun n'est qu'à 1/2 hre du Penthouse. La mer y est invitante, la baignade agréable, la plage est belle, la piscine invitante et le personnel très attentif. Bref, un lieu que je n'hésite pas à recommander. Restaurants et divertissements multiples aux alentours. Merci Carmen de nous avoir permis ce séjour apprécié.”
“We spent an incredible week in Cancun at Carmen's penthouse with the ocean on four sides. It was like a dream! The beds were extremely comfortable which is important to us, and we were able to prepare meals in the kitchen very easily. The apartment is well located with bus service every two minutes, literally, and the airport is close although I would caution people coming into the airport to take the shared shuttle for $20. NOT the private one for $68. Cabs are very expensive in Cancun also but the woman at the desk helped us get a cheaper rate to the airport when we left. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return. Perfect weather and such natural beauty!”
Where is it?
Cancun Hotel Zone is one long street all the way Going downtown... in the meantime you will see plenty of Hotels, shopping malls and restaurants, water activities, ferries to Isla mujeres, underwater museum and many more. Our place is located at the beginning of this long street, closer to the airport but far away enough that you won't even notice it. The lagoon is in one side and the other side you will have an amazing view of the sea. Convenience store, tours and restaurants are walking distance and if you like to walk more you can get to few shopping malls around the area.
