A show stopping house, clearly built with love and a great deal of heart. We adored staying here, such a special place and a great base to explore the island from. Thankyou so much for letting us experience the seashell house.

We had a brilliant time at the Seashell House, it really is as good as the pictures look! It's in the quieter south side of the island which we really enjoyed, but there are plenty of nice restaurants and a handy supermarket close by, or centro is only 15 minutes away by golf…

I love what I do here in Cancun and I have won many years of awards for excellence on Tripadvisor for the quality of my rooms and attention to my guests. I traded Canada for Cancun when I was 25 because I had a desire to never have to return to " reality" after vacationing…
