  • Beautiful Hotel-like Villa

    "We booked rooms at one of the posh resorts for my daughter's wedding, but because of the hurricane, the resort wasn't sure if they would be opened in time. We searched VRBO and found this great Villa. What caught our attention was all the separate rooms with their own bathroom! When we inquired about the availability, the owners were very prompt n responding. We were also pleased to find out that they owned the next door house as well. With a group that was rapidly growing in numbers, we were able to book the 2 places together. In total we had 17 people. I had emailed Lori several times and each time she responded immediately with helpful information. She has directions, recommendations and information about Cabo that she emails. It put our mind at ease to be able to communicate so easily. The majority of the rooms are upstairs and 2 rooms are downstairs. Grandma stayed in the room downstairs which she loved! Having a centralized kitchen was also a bonus. It was stocked with a lot of glasses, dishes, serving dishes, bowls and cooking utensils. You don't need to bring anything. If you need groceries, The Mega store, which carries everything, is about 2 driving minutes away. The property manager is also available, if needed. The bedrooms were well appointed. Each had a clean, extremely comfortable bed, a lot of closet space and large showers. Each room had its own air conditioner with a remote. Everyone loved the idea that they were in a room with a separate entry. The pool and spa were awesome. It was clean and refreshing. I loved the waterfall that could be heard throughout the Villa. Especially when you open all the sliders (all had screens). The owners supplied plenty of beach towels, laundry soap, hand soap and cleaning supplies. There is also a large refrigerator that has filtered water (safe to drink!) for all the beverages. You can also drink water from the spicket at the sink. Because we used the pool so much, the washer and dryer came in handy. You can park cars in the driveway which has a large gate that can be locked. If security is a concern, no need to worry. The Villa is surrounded by a large fence and small gate that can be locked up and the security guards are always driving around on mopeds. I have raved about the Villa to everyone who asked how our trip was. I couldn't have found a better place to stay. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I go back to Cabo (unless it's next door)! Thank you Lori and Chris – you are the best!"

  • Great Rental

    "This is a rental that you should consider. From the beginning the owner was responsive to all inquiries. The staff in the condo were responsive to any requests for assistance. The apartment was clean and well cared for. It was very comfortable with all of the accessories one might need. It is best for those who have a car or if you don't mind walking because the condo is about 2 km from the main road. Located right on Half Moon bay, good snorkeling is a few steps from the front door and YA KUL inlet snorkeling park is just a 10 minute walk away."

  • Amazing!

    "We just stayed at Villa Gauguin for a week. I can't say enough how much we loved this villa. The house is absolutely immaculate, yet still comfortable and livable. The house is right on Yal Ku lagoon. The waters just in front of the house are fun for snorkeling. There is a fresh water river that flows right into the lagoon. This can cause some halocline and thermocline conditions in the water. This means that sometimes the water can appear "oily". This is just nature. If you dive down a foot or so, its super clear. The waters around the lagoon are pristine. We saw no trash, nothing but fish and coral. If you are into snorkeling, you will see parrot fish, sergeant majors, tangs, sea hares, sea slugs, an occasional eel, sting rays, eagle rays, turtles, etc. Snorkeling into the lagoon park is really fun. Lots of rock formations that are fun to swim around. I felt like an explorer. Getting into the water may require some planning. You need to be comfortable walking on a rough rocky surface. Bringing flip flops, rubber soled fin socks, or something like that will make it easier on your feet. There are 2 sets of stairs into the water. Its still not super easy to get in and out if you have mobility issues but with a little patience everyone in our group (ages 6-75) was able to get in and enjoy the waters. The pool is fantastic too. We spent most evenings in the pool just enjoying the view. Kids playing and adults relaxing. Francisco and Gladys keep the house so clean. They are very warm and friendly people. They both greeted us with a warm smile everyday. We had them cook for us 4 times. All I can say is wow! What a treat. The food was delicious. My favorite meal was the chili rellenos, but I can't complain about any of it. It was much lighter fare than I am used to in Mexican restaurants in Atlanta. Francisco and Gladys will keep to themselves to respect your privacy but we were grateful knowing they were there to keep the house in good shape and to keep things safe. The house has some great treats for little guys (or grown ups that forget they are grown up). There are iguanas out on the rocks. They will gladly share your fruit. You may also see tejons, pacas, turtles, and hermit crabs. Groceries in the area are also affordable. We went into the southern part of Playa for groceries. The stores can be a bit overwhelming but the prices were fine. To summarize, this place is AMAZING! We miss Villa Gauguin!"

  • Renting every year!!

    "Absolutely perfect! 5 and 1/2 bath, 5 bedrooms is so rare! Priced very well when compared to others. Don't want to rave too much because I want this place for myself every year! Clean, clean, clean, and you can't beat being this close to the beach. Pool is perfect and was cleaned every day. Maybe a half mile to town, easy for necessities!"

Mexico Travel Tips

It’s no wonder why Americans vacation in Mexico more than any other country in the world. With its picturesque beaches, ancient civilizations and worries-by-the-wayside attitude, this warm wonderland makes an ideal getaway for families and spring breakers alike. Wedged between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, there is no shortage of adventure or relaxation. Listen to the waves crash on the shore or explore the steps where Mayans used to gather thousands of years ago. Whichever it is, get used to carefree livin’.

Mexico City

As the capital of Mexico, Mexico City is bursting with one of the largest metropolitan centers in the world that’s located on the former grounds of the Aztecs. Take a trip back in time as you step foot in the Plaza de la Constitución Zocala, the ancient capital and ceremonial center of Tenochtitlan and the biggest public square in the western hemisphere. In the center of the square, the army ceremoniously raises and lowers the flag each day at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. You won’t want to miss Templo Mayor, where archaeologists are still discovering artifacts about Aztec history and lifestyle. Mexico’s National Museum of Anthropology unveils everything from pre-Hispanic Mayan cultures to the Spanish conquest. Then dress sharp as you make for one of the countless five-star restaurants, or chat with the locals in artsy neighborhoods like Romo or Condesa. As a stunning stratification of ancient ruins beneath modern bustle, Mexico City is a must-visit.

Puerto Vallarta

With a kaleidoscope of activities along 40 miles of coastline, Puerto Vallarta has it all. It is tucked in the Sierra Madre Mountains, and its locals have be known to welcome visitors with open arms. Swimming with dolphins, boating across the bay and unwinding along El Malecon are all on the menu here. Thrill-seekers, take on the adventure of a lifetime at the Puerto Vallarta Outdoor Adventure Tour, where you can speed across canopies zip-lining, embark on a 4x4 off-road drive and even go rappelling down a waterfall! Once you’re beat and need a little rest, hang out in the oceanside central plaza to gaze at the beauty of the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, an emblem of the Puerto Vallarta that is famous across the world.

Cancun

Live it up amidst the hustle and bustle of the Cancun nightlife. Party-rockin’ bars and clubs bursting with music and dancing are everywhere. Pulse-pounding rhythms and an up-till-5 attitude make Cancun a haven for college spring breakers. However, it is also a great cultural destination for those who want to experience Chichen Itza, an awe-inspiring Mayan archaeological site which was a main hub of the ancient civilization. Avoid crowds by getting there early in the morning before the tour buses arrive. Along the coast, the beaches are pristine; Isla Mujeres and Playa Linda, among others, offer magnificent swimming with even better views.

San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel del Allende provides an authentic Mexican escape off the beaten path from overcrowded beaches and tourist lines. Situated on the steep hillside, the city exudes a feeling of warmth as the churches, orange rooftops and brightly colored buildings serve as an inspiration for the artists who live there. During the day, you can take your lover horseback riding or visit Bellas Artes for a look into the study of visual arts, dance and music since 1938. Bask in the beauty of El Charco del Ingenio, San Miguel’s botanical garden, that features 445 aces of ecological reserve that the Dalai Lama declared one of the five “zones of peace” in Mexico. It gives you an opportunity to slow life down again and enjoy it as it comes. When the sun sets, grab a delicious meal at Cafe Rama for a casual yet elegant atmosphere.

Cozumel

Located off the eastern coast along the Caribbean, Cozumel is a small island that boasts big fun. Wade in the turquoise waters of Palancar Beach that are beyond dreamy. It is known for water sports like snorkeling, sailing and kayaking. Expert divers tend to flock to North Beach. Or, embark on a pirate cruise for dinner and fun for the whole family. Discover Mayan remains at the San Gervasio Ruins, a shrine where Mayan women used to visit to worship their goddess of love and fertility Ixchel. Wear close-toed shoes, though, as you’ll be walking black sand beaches with lizards and iguanas. For nature buffs, head south to embrace Faro Celerain Eco Park, also known as Parque Punta Sur, which holds 2,500 acres of indigenous species, such as crocodiles and sea turtles.

Come see why Mexico’s idyllic beaches, historical sites and vibrant city life are a mecca for tourists year-round.
