Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

You´ll love our condominium, Quintas del Mar. Great atmosphere, it is very quiet and close

Keep Reading!!

Our apartments decoration is very special, check it out, you´ll be surprised to find this in the Caribbean!!!

The common areas are great, 4 swimming pools, large grass areas, palapas with tables and chairs, Bbq area, the beach, and the amazing view of Isla Mujeres and the Hotel Zone.

The people at Quintas del Mar are great too, very easygoing atmosphere. Some live there, others come on vacation. All vacationers come back, always! Quintas del Mar is famous for it. Some, a few times a year, others for many years in a row.

Many great things about Quintas del Mar.... you can get up in the morning and step out to go for a jog or a walk while enjoying the view.

It is very close to everything.

It is within walking distance to a 24 hr convenience store, a small local grocery store and to the ferry that takes you to Isla Mujeres. (very beautiful Island).

MarBella world famous restaurant is just a few min away by foot.

A couple of large supermarkets are only 10 min away.

Transportation is good and safe. Local city bus around $0.25 USD and taxi to center around $3 USD.

If you go to the Hotel Zone you are better off taking the bus, taxi will cost around $10 USD

The city center and the start of the hotel zone are only a few minutes away by transport. (10 min)

The central bus station is 10 min away. They have first class transport at really affordable prices. There, you can take buses to Playa del Carmen (1:15min), Tulum (1:45min) and many other places.

The airport is about 35 min away.

And very close by, you can enjoy luxury shopping or low key, local markets, cinema, restaurants, snorkeling, windsurf, many other everything, because like I said before....Everything is close by, Cancun is quite small.

I would say it is perfect for those who want to enjoy the tranquility but still be close to the party scene and more crowded areas in case you want to experience it.

***And don´t forget about the $$$, by staying here you´ll save hundreds of dollars that you can use to do more activities!!

We hope you come stay here, you won´t regret it!

PS. Anything we can do to make your stay better, let us know!!

About natalia maria johnston vindel

Hello!! We are Natalia and Ioachim. I am Spanish and Ioachim is Mexican/German.

We have been living in Cancun for many years now and we love it.

We work here in Cancun. Ioachim´s company manufactures and sells arts, crafts and souvenirs to the boutiques in the hotels. I manage this property and i am a full time mom of 2.

When we are not working, we like to travel, or just enjoy our Caribbean. We go to the beach, spend the day on our boat, or enjoy time with friends and family having barbecues outdoors. Barbecues and celebrations are a must, in Mexico!

We are animal lovers, we have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 ferret and 2 sons!.

natalia maria johnston vindel purchased this apartment in 2007

Why natalia maria johnston vindel chose Cancún

We bough this property in 2007 originally to live in it, and we did for a couple of years. Now we live in one of the bigger houses within the condominium.

We knew Quintas del Mar because Ioachims mother lives here and we loved its atmosphere. The common areas are the best around, 4 swimming pools, lots of grass areas, palapas with tables and chairs and of beachfront and a great view of Isla Mujeres and the Hotel Zone. We weren´t wrong, living here has been magical. It is close really. Cancun is quite small and everything is close by.

What makes this apartment unique

There are many things to enjoy in our condo. For starters, the decoration is unique. It is arabic style. We went to Morocco (Africa) on vacation and fell in love so we brought back many decorative items. We then remodelled the property, doors, bathroom, kitchen, to match the style. It is not for everyones taste but we know whoever decides to stay here will appreciate it as much as we do.

As I said before, the common areas are great, 4 swimming pools, large grass areas, palapas with tables and chairs, the beach, and the amazing view of Isla Mujeres and the Hotel Zone.

The people are great too, very easygoing atmosphere. Some live there, others come on vacation. All vacationers come back, always! Quintas del Mar is famous for it. Some, a few times a year, others for many years in a row.

The fact that we live on site is very helpfull to our guests. I always emphasize the fact that WE ARE HERE TO HELP, and to please come over to our house if they need anything at all.

Quintas del Mar Condominium is very close to everything.

It is withing walking distance to the ferrys that takes you to Isla Mujeres.

Transportation is good and safe.

The city center and the start of the hotel zone is only a few minutes away by transport. The central bus station is 10 min away. They have first class transport at really affordable prices. There you can take buses to Playa del Carmen (1:15min), Tulum (1:45min) and many other places. The airport is 35 min away.

And very close by you can enjoy shopping, cinema, restaurants, snoreling, many other things.

Another great thing about Quintas del Mar is you can get up in the morning and step out to go for a jog or a walk while enjoying the view.

I would say it is perfect for those who want to enjoy the tranquility but still be close to the party scene and more crowded areas in case you want to experience it.

  • 5 of 5

From Jan. to Feb. 2018 We spent six weeks in Natalia’s condo. The condo itself is as described by Natalia and several other reviews. We found it clean and had all the basics for a comfortable stay. As a heads up this is not a ground floor condo. Several areas in Mexico describe one floor up from ground as first floor. The stairwell to this condo does have hand rails but If you have difficulty climbing stairs you may be better off considering a ground floor unit.

There is so much we enjoyed about our stay that we really don’t know where to begin. But here are a few high lights: Natalia and all her family are good people. Yes, you will be well taken care of. What a good mix of both permanent residents and those vacationing. We had a lot of fun meeting and associating with many of these fine folks. The location is great, far enough away from the hotel district and yet it has fantastic views, excellent inexpensive transportation, good sidewalks to venture down and you will feel safe both inside this gated community and the surrounding area. During our stay we traveled (all by public transport or taxi) and took in many of the sights and tours offered. Most evenings we would watch the hotel zone fireworks from our balcony. Sometimes it’s the simple things that add so much value to your stay. If you’re considering this location just do it! This unit will give you full value for dollars spent. By the way please enjoy the brand new king bed.

Loved the view, the pool right by the ocean, comfortable bedding, and the kitchen! The kitchen allowed my husband and I to save money by cooking in the apartment! Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Quiet Cancun Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 2 wonderful weeks in this apartment. It is perfect for couples looking for a quiet vacation away from the main tourist area. It is a short walk to the ferry to Isla Mujeres, and we liked it there so much we went 4 times. Great beaches, activities, and restaurants. Be careful with taxis, some are honest and some take advantage of tourists. We suggest you call Roberto at 998 201 53 89, he is a wonderful man and will charge much less than you would expect. It isn't difficult to get around on public transit, especially if you can speak a little Spanish. The view from the balcony is amazing, there is a nice pool area, and the beach is close by. Natalia lives on the property and is only an email or phone call away...and if she doesn't hear from you for a few days she contacts you to make sure all is well. The only minor issue we had was a lack of coffee mugs and we had 4 brand new ones the next day. Natalia is very warm and welcoming and she is truly available, it is not just a sales comment on her site. We were really impressed that there is a phone in the room with free calls locally and to the US and Canada.

Great apartment and vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here so much! The apartment was in a beautiful location close to culture and adventure. The location was perfect for people looking to avoid the hotel zone. The beach was right next door and the ferry to Isla Mujeres is within walking distance along with some great restaurants. Taxis were easy to get and it was not hard to communicate with the drivers. The apartment was cozy and perfect for 2 people. There were two beds, but one also doubled as the main seating for the living room. The balcony was where we spent most of our time while at the apartment. The view was incredible. Natalia was very helpful; easy to talk to and had great advice. We would recommend this spot to anyone who is looking for a relaxing, fun, cultural experience in Mexico.
