Beautiful home, helpful host
on March 01, 2015
We loved staying at Rosalyn's place. The home was beautiful and spotless, and our room was more than large enough. Private bathroom, king sized bed, mini fridge, and private seating area were all included. The house is in a safe neighborhood within walking distance to the Plaza Americas mall and restaurants. About a 30 minute walk to Blvd. Kukulkan, where you can hop on a bus that will take you to the hotel zone. Rosalyn has 2 cute dogs that are fun to play with and 2 cats that mind their own business. Rosalyn was very helpful in booking tours, offering suggestions for restaurants, and helping figure out transportation.
Breakfast was a bit less than what we expected; what she served was good, but she didn't offer much choice. Breakfast consisted of fruit, bread, cheese, and coffee/juice and that was about it. Other reviews led us to believe that breakfast would be more impressive. However, she was flexible with the time that it was served. The website says breakfast is served from 8-10:30, but she served us at 6:30 am one morning so that we could head off for a tour.
It is worth mentioning that Rosalyn is quite hard of hearing, so speak up when you are chatting with her. All in all though, she is a very nice lady with a wonderful home. We greatly enjoyed our time there; it was nice to stay out of the busy and touristy hotel zone.

You must have heard about home away from home but this place redefines this
clichéd axiom. It's spik n span, non intrusive and pleasantly serene. A cute
pair of pets welcomes you in if you don't want they are more than
understanding. The breakfast delicacies may give finest eateries a run for
their money. Its can best be described in a word: phenomenal.

The owner is wonderful. The home is beautiful and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and very convenient. It is far more than a beach and a bar; staying with Rosalyn is living in Cancun. I enjoyed much more of the area than if I had been mired in the hotel zone. I will forever remember this vacation, and hope to return.
Truely a Home Away from Home

My girlfriend and I stayed here for six nights over the 2012/13 New Years and it was perfect. The host, Rosalyn, is a very lay-back and nice older lady. She'll take care of you like she is your very own Grandma. Seriously. After our last night there, we didn't need to be at our next destination until 3pm and she let us relax at her place for as long as we wanted. Which turned out to be a blessing because I began to feel very sick (dizzy, weak, nauseous) and as soon as Rosalyn found out she drove us straight to the doctor. (We discovered it was either dehydration or something I ate late the night before) I felt better soon after the doctor visit and owe it all to Rosalyn for going above and beyond.
Some other wonderful things about this B&B:
She'll make you whatever you want int he morning and give you plenty of it
The house is immaculately clean.
The neighborhood is beautiful.
It is in close proximity to where you can catch a bus or taxi. (The best way to do things in Cancun if you like to really explore and live the culture.)
Rosalyn has a connection to a guy who sells all of the most popular touristy tours for much cheaper that we found them to be sold in the Hotel Zone. (And they'll pick you up and drop you off just a couple blocks away from her place.)
The beds are comfy.
The shower has great water pressure.
The whole area is very quiet, safe, and peaceful.
Being there for almost a week, we learned that Rosalyn runs this B&B not because she needs the money, but because she just loves doing it and loves to meet all of the people that come to stay there.
If you are looking for a tranquil and personable place to stay in Cancun, stay here. Everything you'll want to see is just a short adventure away.
Oh and if you have any questions at all, I found that she is really great at answering her emails before your trip: rossycan(at)yahoo.com is her email address.
Enjoy your trip you Cancun, I wish I could go back!
it was interesting and fun to read your review on your trip to Cancun.
Was nice meeting you both and I do hope that you will visit me again.
Also ,I have a new member in my family :a cihuahua puppy was given to me a few weeks ago: he is something else,called him Maxwell….
Do have great Xmas ,and a very Happy New Year with all your friends….

Warm welcome, advice on Cancun and help with making arrangements, but never intrusive. Divine, healthy breakfasts, with a new twist each day. Quiet secure street with good parking at the door, steps to good retaurants and minutes from central Cancun.
We will definitely return and will recommend to family and friends.

We come from Australia and wanted to experiance some real Mexican living and not another resort.We loved this B&B so much that we extended our Mexican stay and returned back to Cancaun to 'Home Away From Home' for a further 2 weeks. Rosalyn was the perfect host and went beyond what we expected from a host, from helping us booking day trips to helping with reservation problems we had with our onfarwrd trip. We have made a new friend and I still haven't mentioned how beautiful and comfortable her home is, truly a home away from home with a plus of having Rosalyn there.
NICE PLACE TO STAY!!!

At Home in Cancun
on February 07, 2012
I recently spent two nights at this bed and breakfast at the beginning of my trip down the Yucatan. From the moment I was warmly greeted at the airport by the owner, Rosalyn, I was “home.” Rosalyn made sure of it. Situated in a new section of downtown Cancun, very close to Plaza Las Americas, the house and rooms are beautiful, and Rosalyn is the perfect hostess. Breakfast each morning was a real treat with fresh juice and fruit, a selection of breads and cheeses, and great coffee. And it was served at my convenience; to suit my schedule. While not at the beach, nor in the heart of old downtown, Home Away from Home is in an upscale neighborhood—not a tourist hub. I enjoyed being in a real neighborhood, with local restaurants and shopping. I left feeling like I not only had a new home in Cancun, but a new friend as well.
