    The rooms are big, the bed comfortable. The house beautiful and clean. The yard and patio are cozy and relaxing. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and located conveniently close to the shopping area and the main artery connecting the downtown and Cancun airport. Great coffee, warm bread, selection of cheeses and heaps of fresh fruit in the morning. We... More

    Upon booking @ home away from home, I immediately received and email from Ros giving an in depth details in finding the BnB. We arrived late afternoon, Ros and Ruby were there to greet us and show my partner and I to our room. The room was huge, very comfy bed, with own bathroom. The place is extremely well kept... More

    There's no need to describe that wonderful place but with it's given name. We just strandet here for two nights, but Rosalyn (the canadian owner), is a good person and will serve you, together with her employee, an outstanding brekky. Fresh fruits, strong coffee, fresh baked bread and several sorts of cheese and marmelades! Perfect place to arrive in Cancun... More

    A perfect place for anybody who searching something special, small and heartily. Beautiful, modern and stylish house/villa with beautiful, extremely clean and generous guest rooms, a huge breakfast and a very wonderful host. If you search for party and stuff in Cancun or a big high class hotel/resort - this is definitely not your place.

    We have traveled around the world and have stayed in many different kinds of places. Whenever you book, even though you have read all the reviews, you are never quite sure what you are going to experience. I am so happy with our most recent stay at Rosalyn's home…we felt like we were part of her family when we left,... More

    I enjoyed five days as a guest in Rosalyn's beautiful home. I will long remember her kindness. She helped me experience far more of Cancun than I could have on my own in the busy and anonymous hotel zone. It was a wonderful experience for me and I hope to return.

    If you are looking for a guest house for you and your family this is one of the best options you can find in Cancun. The hotel is pretty close to everything for this city. The owner of the house Rosalyn will help you to organize everything you want. When I was there on New Year time she showed us... More

    Very nice B&B in Cancun located in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Rosalyn is the perfect host and took perfect care of us. The breakfast was delicious and much more than enough with eggs, fresh fruit and juice, bread, marmelade, Mexican coffee,...

    My husband I just got back from our "babymoon" in Cancun, where we stayed with Rosalyn. The previous reviews are all spot on. Rosalyn's home is beautiful. Our room was great (we had the one in the back overlooking the pool), and I spent many hours just lounging on the terrace, listening to the wind rustle the palm fronds and... More
