Villa Las Garza, 48 Caleta Xel-Ha, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo; México
"Casa Las Garza is a wonderful place to stay. I really can not say enough good things about it and its owners. Us and four other couples spent a wonderful ten days exploring the "Mexican Rivera" while staying there. We did a combination of diving (I recommend the cenotes over the ocean) and visiting the local attractions, Xceret, Coba, Tulum, and the Biosphere. The villa is impeccably decorated and furnished, the maids came every day, the kitchen had all the basic necessities, bottled water was provided, the internet connection was first rate, and the villa was centrally located given the activities we wanted to do. The six bedrooms are thoughtfully laid out to provide privacy and personal space so that even with ten of us, we were not getting into each others way. The owners Gigi and Jan were very responsive to our questions and obviously put a lot of thought into the villa. The art work and decorations were really amazing. This was my first experience with VRBO and was pleasantly surprised with the service. I look forward to staying there again."

"My wife and I recently visited this part of Mexico for about our 30th visit to the area in 20 years or so. This was our 2nd visit to Puerto Aventuras and 1st stay in this condo. We love the area and had a fantastic vacation. In fact, the best vacation of our lives!
The condo was fantastic. Great view of the ocean and right above the pool. It was huge, comfortablely equiped and nicely decorated. The hot tub on the deck was amazing (really hot) and worked great which is rare. (We've stayed at a number of places in the past with hot tubs and none of them worked).
The grounds were gorgeous with lots of beautiful flowers and shrubs. And then the real reason for being there. The sun, the sand and that beautiful ocean right out our door. Amazing!!!
For those that don't know and are afraid by the reports of unrest in Mexico, this area is as safe as it gets anywhere. Puerto Aventuras is a gated community and has a crime rate lower than Finland which has the lowest crime rate of any country in the world. You can walk, bike, rent a golf cart or drive anywhere safely and with no worries. You often see kids and teen agers out and about enjoying the sites or watching the Dolphins. Lots of great places to eat and a huge grocery store close by. All sorts of tours are readily available and close by.
As for us, we just chilled and visited with the many friends we have made in the area over the years. Pamela was excellent to work with and very accommodating allowing us to have guests and friends over.(Many of the condos in other buildings we checked out didn't allow this). The staff was very friendly and checked on how we were doing often. It was nice to see the security guard manning his post even when we left for the airport at 4 in the morning.
What a great vacation!!!! We are already making plans to return."

"My husband and I spent a week at Rob & Sue's condo in Puerto Aventuras and had a thoroughly relaxing stay. I had never been to Mexico before and wasn't sure what to expect, but what a treat! The condo was just as advertised and a great value. We dealt with Rob via email and he was very informative and prompt in answering all our questions. Rob offered to arrange airport transfers, but we opted to rent a car so we could visit the surrounding areas. Parking was right in front of the condo. We had no issues driving in Mexico, but we stayed on the main roads and mostly traveled during daylight. The location was perfect to visit Tulum, Excaret, Playa del Carmen .... the list goes on! There was a large, clean supermarket right across the street from the community and you could get everything there, including beer and wine. The condo itself was VERY quiet and relaxing. The deck faced a lovely yard and the marina. We had some cute visitors, iguanas and agouti, in the yard and they were entertaining to watch! We needed peace and quiet and that's what we got! The pool and the ocean were only 120 steps from the front door (good luck getting that at a resort!). The beach is small and not for long walks, but you can walk/jog around the marina if you want to stretch your legs. It was fun to take a morning stroll and see the dolphins playing at the Dolphinarium. What was appealing to us was that the barrier reef was right there! We brought our snorkel gear and went out most days. The fish were amazing! So many colours and sizes .... we highly recommend the snorkeling. The condo was well equipped and we had dinner in two nights, but there was an abundance of restaurants just a stroll away. Many choices and reasonable prices. You could even get Starbucks coffee! The wifi was good and worked on the deck too. The king bed had great linens and there were plenty of towels. The community itself is pretty laid back and friendly. We met some of the neighbours from the "Sunset Club". If you were available and inclined, there were a small group of people (renters and owners) who met each night with a cocktail to watch the sunset, then they went on their way. They were a great source of info and just really welcoming and friendly! It was a great holiday, at a great condo and community and we wouldn't hesitate to go back! Thank you Rob & Sue!"

"Great condo in a little piece of heaven, this is our 3rd trip back to Puerto Aventuras. This is the 1st time we have rented from owners we normally rent condo's that are time shares & what a difference.The owners have everything you can imagine, a well stocked kitchen anything we used we just topped up. Coolers every shape & size floaters for the pool, it was well stocked with everything that we needed. We never stay at the same condo twice but we will give it some serious thought. Thanks for a great vacation."
