About William (Gates) Linger

I am a retired doctor born and raised in Charleston, WV. USA. In addition to being an ER specialist I also owned a construction company in which we built over 18 vacation homes and condos. So when we saw the Hacienda Real we knew it was for us with it's central location and the beauty of the property.

William (Gates) Linger purchased this condo in 2007

Why William (Gates) Linger chose Oaxaca

We were traveling and exploring the ancient ruins in Oaxaca and saw pictures of Huatulco and had to explore this amazing resort area. We

fell in love with the area and decided to buy our first condo at Hacienda Real in 2006. After spending time there we decided to sell the two bedroom and buy the penthouse pre-construction to ccommodate more family and friends.

What makes this condo unique

We chose the Hacienda Real for is Spanish architecture of exterior and inside the units. The archways with all the beautiful tile and marble. The gated property has a waterfall feature wall at the entrance with large pool and amazing grounds.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay for a larger group. It's fully furnished & equiped - all we had to do was buy food. It's well located close to the Santa Cruz beach & there are taxi's everywhere to take you elsewhere. The complex is very nice, quiet, clean & well maintained.

the facilities at the condo develop are great, the location is good.

  • 2 of 5

the rental unit was not up to the standards we have come to expect on vrbo. it just lacks attention, when we arrived the hot water heater was not working,the dishwasher was not working,the water dispensor for bottled water was broken, the king beds in the master bedroom and second bedroom are very very hard i believe a very cheap type , the 3 of the 5 dinning room chairs were broken. the screen door had a large hole in it.The water heater,dishwasher and water dispensor & screen door were repaired within 24 hours of my complaints . Our attempts at sleep the first 2 nights failed, so i walked to town and purchased a pillow top bed cover. $35 us , this allowed us to get rest, so before my family members joined us i went and bought one for the other bedroom, there was only one cracked ice cube tray so we bought a set of 3 that we left in the unit, we also found the knives very dull so we bought a sharp knife .there was no safe in the unit . Cathy B. was very concerned and took care of the repairs promptly .

We loved the hautulco area and would recommend the area and the hacienda real .

Owner's Response: Hi Ron, I am very sorry about having the problems with maintenance issues in the condo. We had an agent that was managing the condo and we found out it was not being properly taken care of before your arrival. At that time we released them and their services and hired Cathy. Again I am sorry and it was our fault that we were not aware of these issues. We thank you for your feedback and we have made sure that we have addressed all of your concerns in regards to the condo. Best regards, Gates and Lee Ann

Very Large Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very large Condo, 3 bedroom, 3 bath. It is ideal for a large family. The Kitchen has the essentials and also a Laundry room. The condo has a pool but is not heated so it can get a bit cold. It is a small complex and gated, very safe. No Elevator and is in the 3rd floor. We did not have a problem with that. The condo has a view of the street and the pool. There is no view of the ocean. The beds were ok... you might want to bring your pillows. There are also good not enough towels you might want to take some. There is a nice jacuzzi outside the master bedroom but sadly was not working while we were there. There is a small store right next door where you can get some essentials. There is also a small restaurant next door with excellent food. There is always taxis near by to take you anywhere. The Santa Cruz Beach is about 10 minute walk from condo. Personally not my favorite beach since there is a dock there. But in taxi you can get to any beach for about $5 each way dollars. Down town or the grocery for $2 each way. We had a amazing time!!! I definitely recommend this condo!!

Idaho, U.S.A


  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 7 weeks from mid December 2013 to early Feb 2014. Firstly, the owners were very friendly, accommodating and super easy to deal with and get hold of when we needed to. We have three kids (aged 5, 7, and 9), and so were looking for a safe place to stay. The penthouse was awesome! Spacious, clean, and well appointed. We cook all our own meals, and our youngest has severe dietary restrictions, yet we were able to do everything we needed to in the kitchen with the existing equipment. Washing machine was nice for doing our own laundry. We loved how the complex has a big gate to the street, so that the kids could play and roam on the grounds in security. There is a swing-set and play area on the shady side of the building, and the pool on the sunny side. We enjoyed the privacy up on the third floor, yet the water vendors were happy to deliver to us. We never tried the hot tub. (Just a note about the internet service here: the complex offers free encrypted wifi. Signal strength is excellent down at the pool. Up on our balcony, signal strength was satisfactory for streaming media and Skype, but it was unusable at the dining room table or beyond. If you are dependant on internet, bring a signal booster. This in no way diminished the enjoyment of our stay. I only mention it FYI). The location of Hacienda Real is ideal. Located in Santa Cruz, it is separate from the main shopping centro, but only a few minutes away by bus or taxi. Yet Santa Cruz it has it’s own atmosphere, somewhat reminiscent of a Mediterranean resort. Literally a 5 minute walk to the main beach, which was a fantastic beach for swimming –no dangerous currents, safe for the kids, and there are some excellent dining opportunities right there on the beach or very close by. Many fabulous beaches and snorkeling within 10 minutes drive. Great shopping if you’re looking for local-made arts and crafts. A really good farmers market takes place in the square every second Saturday. We had a wonderful time here! The kids loved it, and we would gladly stay in this condo again!

I have vacationed on numerous occasions in Huatulco and keep renting this particular penthouse, simply because it meets my requirements for a GREAT vacation stay, every time! It has all of the amenities Canadians enjoy AC is a must , spacious bedrooms satellite tv, fabulous pool, gate security etc. This penthouse can easily accommodate 2 families , personally I give this property very high marks. The beaches are pristine and the surrounding towns offer great inexpensive dining, they even have an authentic Little Italy offering tasty Roman dishes at very reasonable prices. Its a can't lose vacation spot.

I have fallen in love with Huatulco. It is an amazing little piece of heaven in Mexico, far from the gringo bustling bars. The ocean, restaurants and people are incredible, plus a whole lot more. When you just want to sit back this condo is the place to do it. I have stayed in this complex several times and the penthouse condo is my choice. You can be with the action or go back to your condo and layback in your personal hot tub. The owner is easy going and makes sure you enjoy your stay. You are walking distance or a very cheap cab ride to town for a delicious dinner....loads of choices. I love this place and recommend it.

Car: not necessary

Santa Cruz is a beautiful resort area in Huatulco.

The Hacienda Real is centrally located to endless activities, restaurants and shopping. Only a five minute walk to the beach with snorkeling, surfing, boating, jet skies, fishing and more. Huatulco has 36 beaches and nine bays with outstanding views of the surrounding mountains. La Crucetia is a five minute cab ride to the town square with more great restaurants and shopping. In the area there are eco tours as well as white water rafting and zip line excursions. A big plus for this area is a rental car is not necessary with cabs readily available and cheap. We visit often and there is always something new to explore.
