About Kenneth Dugas

My wife and I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. We are business owners with Paramedic and Nursing backgrounds. We love to travel and have always had a dream of owning a place in the Caribbean. This year, our dream came true and feel so blessed to have this place.

Kenneth Dugas purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kenneth Dugas chose Quintana Roo

We really were looking for a 3 bedroom unit when we came across Villas del Mar D-205. We actually gave up a bedroom and paid more for this condo because we could not pass up buying at this location. The beach and the Caribbean is what we want when we travel. Villas del Mar, in our opinion, had the best beach location in all of Puerto Aventuras! Speaking of Puerto Aventuras, what a perfect place to be in the Mayan Riviera! It is the perfect balance between resort and community and has everything you need right there. The gated community is very safe and the additional gate and security in Villas del Mar is so comforting. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. People from all over the world travel to Cancun. However, once in Cancun they book excursions such as nature parks, diving, fishing, seeing the ruins etc. All of these activities are close to Puerto Aventuras! This is the place to be.

What makes this condo unique

There are only so many homes with views like this in the world! The pools, beach, palm trees and Caribbean are beautiful. Did I mention location? Couldn't be better!

This Condo is the whole package

  • 5 of 5

This condo is not as good as it is represented in the pics and description...IT IS BETTER!! MUCH BETTER! This condo has everything--a clear view of the pool and beach (perfect for watching sunsets or sunrises), very spacious and just steps away from anything you would need while you are on vacay. Go down the stairs and out the side gate (walking gate, not one for cars) and you are in the town of Puerta Aventuras with the dolphin experience, shopping, pharmacy and lots of great dining just a short walk away from you. The condo itself is much bigger than it looks in the pics and the owners have decorated it beautifully with touches from some of the local shops. Want to watch TV, a movie, or bbq? They have everything you need including a nice selection of DVDs for every age and every choice as well as wifi that we found to be very reliable and the television gets really good reception. Want to have a quiet time reading? Step out onto your private balcony and enjoy the view and the beautiful weather. Want the family to get together for dinner? There is a spacious dining area and full kitchen. You just couldn't ask for anything better. There is even a binder on the coffee table that the owners have put together with every possible outing you can do featured in full color. They also have tips for what they would suggest and phone numbers in the event you need to contact someone about wifi or some other question. Best vacation we've had in quite some time. We will be returning and we have already recommended this specific property to many of our friends. Also, within Puerta Aventuras you will be hard pressed to find someone who does not speak English well. The locals are very friendly and will speak to you in English or will be happy to help you practice or learn your Spanish. Very nice.

Owner's Response: Nan, So glad you and Brian enjoyed your stay. Thanks for telling me about the new monkey park you went to in Akumal! There is so much to see and do around there. I feel I will never get to do it all! That's what makes it so great about our trips there. Always something new to see and do. I am glad to hear that you and Brian are planing on coming back to stay with us. I look forward to your return. Thanks for the nice review! Happy New Year, Ken and Denise

We just returned from spending 7 days at Villas Del Mar. it was just perfect! The condo was represented well in the pictures very clean and well fitted. We appreciated the beach chair cushions, noodles and coolers that were available for use. On our 1st night the was a problem with one of the air conditioning units, Ken and Yvonne we very responsive and had it fixed right away the next morning and we never had any further problems with it. It was a perfect location with a beautiful pool and beach location. Took advantage of Yvonne shopping for us and having our groceries in the condo, very helpful after a long travel day. The area felt very safe and all of the condo employees were so friendly. If our travels head that way again, would not hesitate to stay here a second time.

Owner's Response: Jeanette, I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay. We truly love our place and feel we have the best location on the Riviera Maya! Villas del Mar's location and our private beach is the reason we had to purchase this property as our dream vacation home. I am sorry about the air conditioner problem but am glad you were pleased with the way the repair was taken care of right away. We always try to keep our condo in great condition. I hope you enjoyed the bottle of wine we brought you for this inconvenience. Thank you for the nice review. The satisfaction of our guests is very important to us. We love having our guests return year after year. Hope to have you return soon!

Puerto Venturas is the perfect location for a wonderful family vacation. There was plenty to do for all 3 generations of the family. The apartment block is perfectly located with the best beach in Puerto Adventuras.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this condo and this location. It was a perfect vacation for our family of five. Our three daughters, ages 12, 10, and 8 enjoyed the pool and the beach. The restaurants just outside of Villa Del Mar were great, the Farmers Market (available on Saturday and Wednesday) was wonderful. This was our first time staying at a condo in Mexico and not an all-inclusive resort. I am not sure I will want to do all-inclusive ever again. The condo gave us so much more space than just a room at a resort, having the washer and dryer and our own kitchen was so nice. Most mornings we ate breakfast in the condo and usually lunch at the condo too. Having the Weber grill was a plus! My husband grilled our lunch and could wave to us at the pool from the balcony when it was ready. We took a day trip to hike in Tulum and we also swam with the turtles in Akumal. There were also so many nice families also vacationing at Villas Del Mar. We had been worried that our girls might be bored at the condo versus an all-inclusive, that was not the case at all. We walked the beach most every morning and the weather was perfect our entire vacation. This condo is well-equipped, there was not one thing that I wished the condo had, the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals and there were coolers to use for taking drinks to the pool/beach. We went out for dinner most evenings and also made quite a few trips to the gelato shops! All of the food was excellent, in my opinion, much better than the food at an all-inclusive. I plan on returning to this condo and to Villas Del Mar in Puerto Aventuras. The listing is accurate; the property is clean and well-maintained. Ken was very responsive to any questions we had. Ken, thank you for sharing your condo with our family! We really enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Jessica, I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at my home. We too used to always stay at all-inclusive resorts. We liked them very much but I agree with you that they cannot compare to our condo and the location. Located right next door to the Marina, restaurants, shops, dolphin Lagoon, golf and tennis makes it like the best of all worlds and it comes with the beautiful pools and beach! We have had the condo less than two years and we are so pleased with it. There are many places you can choose to stay in the Riviera Maya. Denise and I thank you very much for choosing to stay at our home. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for us. We are always working on making our home the best place for our guests to stay. We try to develop relationships with our renters and want them to feel like our condo can be like their private vacation home as well. That's why we try to listen to our renters. We did not buy this for a rental property. We bought it as our dream Caribbean home. That is why we love to have repeat renters who we get to know and can trust to take care of our home. You and your family would be welcomed back any time. We thank you for your stay and hope to have you back again soon! Sincerely, Ken

This is the third year we rented this condo. The owner Ken is very personable, agreeable, and it’s pleasant to work with him. He knows the area well and is very helpful, in re to transfers, restaurants, activities etc... He replies to your emails and answers your questions quickly.


* Villas del Mar is a quiet, safe, well groomed, gated-community. We love our holiday at Villas del Mar. The condo is everything you wish for and more. The condo is spacious, well decorated, welcoming, it feels like a home not a rental. All the appliances are new, stove, dishwasher, washer and dryer, BBQ, we love to cook and it’s nice to have a working kitchen. The master suite has a comfortable king size bed, good mattress and soft sheets. There is good internet, maid service and bottled waters. The large remodeled balcony is the perfect place to watch the sunrise, enjoy Riviera Maya and sip tequila.


* Ken welcomes his guests suggestions. We suggested some cushions for the beach chairs to ease my husband back pain. He had some waiting for us for our stay. Thank you so much, the cushions helped us greatly.

Villas del Mar in Puerto Adventuras has 2 pools, white sand beach, lots of plenty of beach chairs and palapas for the guests. Restaurants, shops, Dolphins discovery are 5 minutes walking distance from the condo. If you need to provision, Chedraui Mexican super market is a 5 minute / $5 taxi ride ( fresh fish, vegetables, fruits, home made tortillas, Mexican pastries etc...), on Wednesday and Saturday on the main square there us a Farmer's Market. During our stay in Puerto Adventuras we don't to rent a car, we can walk everywhere. Playa del Carmen, Akumal and Tulum are 30 minutes taxi drive.

We spent a month in Riviera Maya in February, Villas del Mar in Puerto Adventuras is always one of the resort we enjoy visiting.

Thank you Ken and Denise for sharing your beautiful condo with us.


* Recommended for: Families with young children, Sightseeing, Girls getaway, Tourists without a car.

Owner's Response: Tom and Angela, We are so glad you chose to return to our home again. Thank you so much for the nice review! We just love the location next to the square as well as the entire Riviera Maya. When we saw the beach, we knew that was the place for us to buy our Caribbean dream. You and Tom have always been great, respectful guests and I am so sorry that my condo was booked when you wanted it for next year. Let me know as soon as you know when you would like to return and I will always be willing to block those dates for you. I am glad the chair cushion helped and you like the new terrace and appliances! As always, let us know if you have any other suggestions for us. I will miss you next year! Take care and hope to have you back again soon. Sincerely, Ken & Denise.

Location! How true it was. The condo is located at the apex of the inner courtyard directly overlooking the pools and the ocean beyond. The descriptions of this home on the site were without exaggeration. The view from the master bedroom and the deck is absolutely magnificent. The interior tastily decorated and was well equipped with all amenities. The place was very clean upon our arrival.

Our host Ken was extremely responsive and helpful; as were the support staff on site adding to the enjoyment our holiday.

We felt very safe in the community of Puerta Adventuras, it offers a good variety of things to do and taste. We enjoyed the numerous dinning options and live music. Not to mention watching the dolphins play. The condo is located near all local amenities as well as the local grocery store. We did not see a need to rent a car during our stay as we found the local taxi service very clean, polite and efficient.

Not only do we fully recommend this home as an excellent vacation destination but we have already booked for a longer stay next year.
