We had a wonderful two-week stay at Jorge’s house. It’s a comfortable two-bedroom home with a fabulous roof patio. When we were not out-and-about, we spent most of our time up there. It was partially roofed, so there was access to both sun and shade. The huge tree in the front yard gave us great privacy from the street.
The beach was somewhat farther from the house than we anticipated. It took us about 25 minutes to walk there, so the opportunity for exercise abounds. Jorge also has 2 bicycles at the house, but we preferred to walk. The beaches are wonderful. We mainly walked north down the beach to end up in front of the Petite LaFitte hotel. We did that not only for their beach but also for the fabulous guacamole that you could buy at their beachside restaurant. You can also walk south down the beach, and end up at a public beach club nestled in the Grand Coral hotel area. This will take you about 20-25 minutes. There you have free lounge chairs, umbrellas, and can order food, and the walk down the beach is wonderful. If you want, there are massage tents along the way.
There is an OXXO and a Mexican market just a couple blocks away from the house. You can get a lot of things you need there, but for longer stays you may want to visit a large grocery store. We did not have a car, but the highway is a just a few blocks away. There are bus stops on both sides of the road, AND there is a stop and go light!!! We took a bus into Cancun one day, to Playa and Akumal another day. You can also call a taxi, if you wish. They are not very expensive. When leaving Playa, however, the price is higher, but you can often talk the driver down a bit. Of course, you could rent a car and go anywhere:-).
Jorge is a gracious host. He is easily accessible, and wants you to be sure that you have everything you need. He picked us up at the airport and took us back at the end of our visit. I don’t know if that is always the case. Maybe it was because we were staying for a couple weeks. In our opinion, you won’t meet a kinder and more accommodating host than Jorge.
Having said all that, we highly recommend Jorge's house for people who prefer peace and privacy over a tourist atmosphere with loud music and big crowds of people everywhere.
