This bed and breakfast is hard to beat! It exceeded our expectations and more. The house is impeccable, beautifully decorated and is in a very central location where it is easy to get to and arrange tours. The hostess, Rosalyn, was awesome. She was so kind and helpful every step of the way in arranging our trip to Cancun. She...

Roz has a beautiful home, the rooms are large with en suite bathrooms, beautiful patio and all very clean. She provides healthy breakfast choices. Roz is Canadian but has lived in Mexico for many years so she is very fluent, can arrange reliable taxi service and can help with suggestions on just about anything related to Cancun or the whole...

Rosalyn was a tour guide, a concierge, a librarian, and a fun hostess. We were able to stay three lovely nights in Cancun and because we were at the end of our trip, we were a little burned out. Rosalyn helped us to find just the right things to do. We found the public beach on the Hotel Zone, by...

Rosalyn and her furry companions Baquira, Max, Mikki + Tequilla truly made us feel so relaxed and welcomed. We also booked this B + B based on reviews but, unless you spend some time in Rosalyn's beautiful home, you don't get the true picture. Every morning Rosalyn and Natty, her wonderful housekeeper, provided a delicious breakfast and answered any and...

Life is short, time is of the essence, and host Rosalyn does not prevaricate about the proverbial bush - she is at once your host, long lost friend, boon companion, and mother hen. Her home is finely crafted and constructed with spacious rooms and modern facilities. She knows Cancun like the back of her hand, and has situated her BnB...

My wife and I used this comfortable, spotless B&B as our home base for exploring Cancun. Mornings started with a leisurely breakfast on the backyard, covered patio enjoying fresh fruit, breads, jams and coffee in the company of the owner, Rosalyn, or the other guests (usually two). By our return in the evenings we often had the patio to ourselves...

“I like to look out over the pool so the back room would be my first choice. Since Home Away From Home is quaint, there aren't any guests "whooping" it up, just the white sound of rolling water.”

“There are only two rooms, the middle upper room is somewhat larger than the other, corner room. Can't lose either way.”

“If you are driving have Rosalyn provide you with accurate directions. The main streets in Cancun are very busy and intersections as well as signage can be confusing. I believe our room was the only one with a terrace which might be important for a longer stay.”
