                            This was our third trip to the Villa. The owners are awesome to work with. They are so friendly and welcoming. We normally travel with 2 to 3 other couples when we visit the Villa. With 4 Bedrooms and 5 bathrooms there is room for everyone to have their own space, yet lots of room for gathering as a group. We love having our own private pool and being just feet from the ocean. The house is fabulous! We always enjoying Kayaking right from the house and swimming in the Cenote. Rosa and Wayner are absolutely wonderful to the guests and the dogs. They take wonderful care of the house and grounds. I must recommend if you stay here that you have Rosa and Wayner cook for you. We had them make us a Lobster/Shrimp dinner with all the side dishes. It was absolutely delicious. There is so much to do and see in the area. I highly recommend the Public beach in Tulum and the Cenote behind the house. Tulum Beach is about 10/15 min from the house by taxi. Wayner will arrange transportation if you need it. We will definitely schedule a return trip to the Villa! We are in love with everything about it including the dogs. Flora, Ziggy and Bonita. These are the dogs that protect the guest and the house. We are dog lovers so my family was amazed that we found a home on the beach with vacation pets. :) We had no idea until we arrived the first time, but now it is one of the many reasons we go back. :) I can Promise if you go to Villa Gummerson you will not be disappointed. The pictures do the not do it Justice.... Simply amazing!!!

                            My family and I were looking for a vacation spot that was private and with plenty to do and we got that on our stay at Villa Gummerson. The home was beautiful and immaculate, the pictures don't even do it justice. We had 8 adults, 2 children and everyone had their own space. There was plenty to do from playing in the pool, snorkeling in the ocean, kayaking/swimming in the cenote, relaxing in the hammocks, plus a couple restaurants where we got to the know the staff by name. We also took advantage of Rosa's cooking which was out of this world! Our only regret was not having her cook more often. Wayner and Rosa were wonderful and so helpful. There is nothing I'd change about our trip. I tried persuading my husband to just stay there but I it didn't happen so I guess will just have to come back!

                            We stayed at the beautiful Villa Gummerson at the end of 2010. We could not believe how lucky we were; the house is very comfortable with lovely sized bedrooms. The back door opens onto a sandy beach with pelicans diving into the ocean and great snorkeling just steps from the house - in the the backyard if you will! We loved the proximity of the house to plenty of things to do, culture, beaches, good restaurants, but we also enjoyed just hanging out at the house and watching nature from the comfort of a sunbed. There is a cenote just across the road from the house which is worth several visits. I cannot wait to go back!

                            We just got back from a week at Villa Gummerson. What an amazing place. My family (myself, husband, three kids 15, 9, 5, and my Mom) all had a wonderful time. The home is stunning and the setting is spectacular. Honoria and Sylvia were absolutely wonderful. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Truely a dream for us.

                            We had a fantastic time! We hated to leave! Your home is just beautiful! It was the perfect size for our two families. The beach was gorgeous and we snorkeled all over the bay almost every day…Thanks again for allowing us to share your beautiful home! It was the best place we’ve ever stayed in Mexico…

                            …wow…what can I say…What a beautiful home you have, we never really got used to the beauty of the place, kind of felt like lifestyles of the rich and famous!…We walked the beach several times and decided that Villa Gummerson was the nicest on the bay. The layout was well thought out. We initially were disappointed the pool wasn’t on the beach side but we quickly got over that…the pool was a nice Oasis out of the wind.

                            …Just wanted to let you know that it was everything we imagined it to be and more…I also liked the proximity to the Cenote, both for my wife and the rest of the family who scuba dive but also for me as I love to fish….Honorio and Silvia cooked for us which was excellent. They also kept the place in excellent condition and helped us with any request.

                            Your home is so beautiful! What a piece of work! The floor plan, finishes, and furnishings are gorgeous. Also, the construction and “hurricane worthiness” is incredible…Our visit was the “authentic” Mexican/Caribbean vacation I had hoped for my family. My desire to get away from the “tourista” and see the Mexico I remember as a kid was realized. The home, town and area exceeded all our expectations. Tulum felt like ”our town” by the time we left. The people were very friendly and although I’m sure it’s grown up a lot, it still has that small town feel we really enjoy.

                            …the house was just perfect for our family—it was so nice to be in a “home setting” instead of individual hotel rooms…Your help and information really enhanced our vacation and we sincerely thank you for your kindness.

                            The house was just so fantastic and such a delight to come back to after a day of adventure or just to relax in and never leave. We enjoyed every part of the house. I loved where the pool is. We had sun lovers and sun dodgers in our group and with the way the house and the pool were positioned everyone was happy at any time of the day.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: My husband and I met in highschool in our hometown in the mid-west where we have resided all of our lives. I am a retired special ed. teacher and my husband is a retired plumbing estimator. We have two adult children, two delightful grandchildren and twins on the way! We serve as foster parents for Healing the Children and are active in animal rescue.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tulum:
                          We bought the property many years before building the villa. The area was just beginning to be developed and it provided a wealth of natural treasures such as the second largest coral reef in the world and the amazing Manatee cenote. It is the snokelers or divers paradise. Tankah is also very close to so many attractions such as the Tulum ruins, Coba, Xel Ha and many others.
