About Nuri Gonzalez

I am a mother of 2 daughters and a son whom with my husband felt in love with Casa Gaviotas that we first rent for a year, the location, distribution, view, functionality was the perfect home to raise kids and teenagers and yo enjoy with other young couples (our friends) that visit us manny times from home town.

Once we bought I begin to remodale and refurnish step by step, all the floor, kitchen electric appliances, install gas on the house (it was electric) and hire a carpenter to design special furniture as well as beds and kitchen in the same wood.

Then we change both terraces and make them with solid concrete and build special closets outside for the pool and ocean toys and equipment and sun tan lotions.

Why Nuri Gonzalez chose Cancun

Casa Gaviotas is perfect for fmaily gatherings as it can sleep10 guests, dinner table for 12 people. 4 bedrooms and is in a unique zone, private street, very calm ocean and breathless views.

What makes this villa unique

As a guest of CASA GAVIOTAS you get 20% discount on tours and excursions during your stay with us. There are very few houses in the hotel zone of Cancun that can offer ocean view, beach front, amazing view of the ocean and Isla Mujeres, one parking space. convenience store on the corner, unlimited WIFI, pool, beach, ocean, snorkel equipment, unlimited local and international calls and security on the street 24/7.

DO NOT RECOMMEND RENTING THIS HOUSE

  • 1 of 5

Renters beware of this seemingly beautiful oasis...

Our family arrived to a construction zone. 12+ construction workers worked tirelessly from 8 AM to 5 PM each day during our stay at the house attached to the left of this property. We were subjected to jack hammering that vibrated the house, loud hammering, sawing, etc. There was dust and nails everywhere. The shared stairwell that led to the pool and beach was rarely free and at times blocked by wooden beams as they constructed a massive two-storey terrace. Not the peaceful vacation we were anticipating.

The property manager, Ernie did help where he could when we met him on the second day of our stay. The Wi-Fi password in the rental information provided was written down incorrectly, so we were without Wi-Fi for about 1.5 days prior to Ernie arriving. Not great for those travelers that were requiring it for work and were inconvenienced having to leave to work elsewhere.

In terms of the house, I would recommend it for a group of six max. We were a group of eight, with two people per room, including two in the basement. As others have noted, the spiral staircase was steep and difficult to maneuver. It was extremely musty and damp in this room.

In terms of other small issues, there was a bathroom carpet in the middle of the master suite covering an area on the floor to avoid and walk around where the tile had lifted and cracked. We too ran out of gas, which meant no cooking or warm showers for that day / evening and following morning prior to having the propane replaced. Lastly, less of a bother to us than others, but the back door locks were still broken so sticks and umbrellas were used to ensure the doors were secure.

Overall, we made the best of it and the view and pool were nice, (when we weren't disturbed by the construction workers).

I am most disappointed with the lack of follow up from the owner. She was quick to get in touch to obtain my Visa number for the deposit and again for the remainder payment due for our rental. Despite my multiple attempts to contact her both through the Home Away site and her email to inform her of our experience, I have not heard back…13 days and counting. Acknowledgment of this unfortunate circumstance and an apology would have gone a long way.

Had it been my property, I would have contacted the renters as soon as possible and offered some type of resolve for their disappointing experience.

Owner's Response: We send you an apologize letter a week ago. We didn't know that our neighbors were planning to remodel their terrace and they dis not ask for permission neither give the necessary papers and law permits, our lawyer is dealing with this issue. You also know that I was going to be traveling to Middle East for a month and without access to WiFi, I'm still in Spain. That is why I couldn't response earlier or even know about what was going on Apparently the floor issue was also caused because the neighbors remodelation. And we will fix it ASAP. As you can see the guest staying for a month before you, did t have any issue with the house. We apologize again and still offer the special discount t I. Your next vacation . Sometimes you travel to Plaza San Marcos in Venice or to Istanbul and everything in under remodelation or reconstruction and you still enjoy your vacations, the view, and the area. Properties can't be responsable of whatever happen around their property.; if HZ is to crowded, or Telmex do not provide Wifi service or we loose cable connection, that is not in our hands, neither to know when neighbors will go into construction.

Great view! Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was perfect except a couple of things in the maintenance of the condo. It needs a little tender loving care.

Ernie (the manager) was just perfect!!!! He had the mattress replace in no time. He's a very caring person.

The condo is great, a lot of room, well equiped in general, but it would need some renovation to get five stars.

The terrasse is absolutely fantastic, we had breakfast, lunch and dinner outside every day for the complete month we were there.

a bit disappointed

  • 3 of 5

We were a bit disappointed with our stay after reading all of the glowing reviews.

Pros- spacious, great balcony and terrace facing the beach. Ernie was sweet and very available. Good location

Cons- smelled of mildew, except for master bed the beds were very uncomfortable my teenage kids were not happy, We saw roaches in multiple locations.

Unfortunately I would not choose it again

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and the feed back, roaches and ants are a big problem in Cancun, I've already spoken to the pest control company that fumigates the house every 3 months and offers us a guarantee and they will take care of it tomorrow. This is our very first complaint about the mattresses, but in accordance to our quality standards and the great experience we want our guests to have, once it is brought to our attention we will take care of it.. New mattresses ordered and will arrive next week. We appreciate your stay with us and the feedback. Nuri

La casa a cumplió con todas mis expectativas y más.

  • 5 of 5

La casa cumple con todas las comodidades que uno busca al estar de vacaciones, es muy amplia y cuenta con todo el equipamiento propio de una casa. El estar a unos pasos del mar lo hace aún más preciado y la alberca también nos encanto.

Altamente recomendable

  • 5 of 5

Quiero expresarle mi satisfacción por la renta que realice de su casa. Francamente la felicito por el excelente mantenimiento y condiciones en las que se encuentra su casa. Las habitaciones nos parecieron de muy buen tamaño limpias y cómodas.

Ver amanecer frente a tu habitación mientras te tomas un café no tiene precio!!!

Muchas felicidades y estamos seguros de regresar.
