Casa Flores MX – Airbnb Cancun private pool

This beautiful house rental in Cancun is centrally located, and is surrounded by supermarkets and shopping centres.

There is a private pool, and three bedrooms, as well as a dining and living room.

Guest review: “This house was beautiful. Everything was just like the pictures. We rented a car for our trip which was the greatest idea because it is about a 20-30 min drive to the beach (we didn’t mind – we did our research on how far everything was prior to booking). There was a Walmart 5 min away, so we got food for the house and saved a bunch of money not eating out.

Sergio was amazing. I told him that my partner and I were celebrating our anniversary and he left us flowers and wine with a small note saying happy anniversary. Sergio messaged us back extremely fast. I will say, the house can be a bit tricky to find. We luckily turned down the right road and saw the floral building. All in all, amazing stay. We felt super safe and comfortable. Very quiet neighborhood. I definitely recommend” – Kita, September 2020

This spacious third floor studio apartment is located on the main street of downtown Cancun so is close to the nightlife, shops and restaurants, and is just a short drive from the beach and Hotel Zone.

Guest review: “This space! Incredibly beautiful, central and safe! I truthfully felt more safe in Cancún Centro then I did on the hotel zone when we went for dinner one night. The community is welcoming and kind. Please, if you are looking to get out of the typical tourist trap locations this is the spot.

About the apartment, the room was cool and stylish and bed was COMFY. We didn’t use the AC once because the breeze through the room was phenomenal enough. A beautiful home, truthfully. Also don’t forget to spend a sunset on the roof! Could not recommend Alana’s space enough” – Kelsey
