AMAZING PLACE TO STAY
"Amazing location and condo! We stayed here two weeks in July - first time ever being in Mexico. I searched the website for months trying to find the best place for our family of four for our vacation (two kids 13,7). What Dr. James Baumgaertner has shown for pictures and his walk around video is exact! We could not ask for a better vacation spot. The workers are so friendly and accommodating. After we booked with James he gave us a ton of information about the area which we relied on quite a bit. His manager that is on site was very helpful as well - if we ever needed anything he was there for us.
There are so many places to stay at Villa Del Mar for condo rentals - but I can say I believe we picked the very best one. When going for a walk down to the other area where there are different villa del mar condo rentals - the beach is definitely not as nice as where we stayed.
It is the perfect spot to be by the ocean. Ocean was amazing! The two pools are very clean and not too many people when we were there. The snorkeling was so fun to be able to do it right outside the condo. The beach right outside our condo is a great size, not too busy, love the little area for younger kids to play in the ocean without having the waves get them.
The condo itself is absolutely beautiful and very spacious. The balcony has an amazing view. Very clean. Has tons of drawers.
Short walk to pretty much anything you need. Loved that we could eat a meal in the condo or walk anywhere within a few minutes to eat out if we preferred.
It was also very handy to rent the mini van that James has available. Since this was our first time to Mexico we definitely went out almost every day and explored different places. First day we were nervous to leave but after day one, we were old pros. I felt very safe.
I would recommend this property to anyone that wants an amazing family vacation, wants to be as close to the ocean as you can get, doesn't want to have the all inclusive feeling with hundreds of people around you, wants a relaxing, comfortable beautiful place to stay. Thank you to James for being so helpful and accommodating and to his wife (which I had such a wonderful chat with on the phone before I booked).
This was an absolutely beautiful vacation spot to be at. We look forward to the next time we come to Mexico. We will definitely come back to this property. P.S. My son misses "Fire" the Iguana that seems to live at the rock by the pool;)"

"Great place for our 6 adults + 5 kids (ages 4-12). Exactly what we needed for the grandparents, parents and kids.
* Everything worked, house nicely equipped
* One of the bedrooms is in a back sort of casita/own entrance so that was really nice for the grandparents to have a little privacy/quiet - especially with some of the littles up super early.
* Loved the golf cart & bikes
* Omni pass great - spent a few days hanging at the beach there
* Kids lived in the pool and hot tub at the house (adults loved both too - especially hot tub) - tip to give it a little time with the jets running to let it warm up.
* Latitude 20 is a nice reasonably priced nearby spot to walk for dinner and some live music on some nights
* Cheli (housecleaning and cook) and Marco (maintenance/yard, etc) very attentive/helpful
* Have Cheli cook dinner a few nights for some nice/authentic food
* Bring DVDs if you have little kids as the library is mostly PG 13+
* The TV is mostly in Spanish - would have probably brought a few more DVDs had we known (see above)
* We rented a car (booked through Dollar) before we left - helpful to get to bigger grocery store (Chedraui) and for excursions to Tulum, cenotes, etc.
* Puerto Aventuras is a cute, very safe feeling town - a haven from the much busier places like Playa Del Carmen
Glad we found this house. We all felt like we were getting our money's worth at this great house with a great location for a super vacation!"

"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!"
