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!

The reviews of this place are accurate. The condo is well appointed, very clean pool, friendly staff, convienently located and nice deck. The resort has some nice restaurants and our daughter loved the Dolphin encounter. This is a very international area which we enjoyed. Water cooler in condo was a nice amenity.

We loved the condo it was every thing as described. The grounds are well kept and two pools are very nice. A short walk from pools are beautiful white sand beach and ocean is pretty blue water, you can walk out in water to breakers water is only waist high and when you walk past breakers we went snorkeling and saw all kinds of different fish. The marina which is only a five minute walk there are several places to eat and drink. Ken was very helpful sent all the information ahead of time and things when very smoothly. We will stay again.

Owner's Response: Bob, Thank you for the nice review. Denise and I are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We truly found a hidden gem when our realtor showed us this place. It is truly our little slice of paradise. I love our beach. We also enjoy the white sand beach and snorkeling. It is kind of the best of all worlds for us. The location right next to the marina and the village square make our place in Puerto Aventuras one of the best there is. I am happy to hear you will stay again. We look forward to having you back again soon! There are many places you can choose to stay. We put a lot of effort into making our home the best it can be. We are so grateful you chose to stay with us. People wanting to return is the best review we can get! We are going there next week and are looking so forward to it. We will be making more improvements while we are there. Thanks again, Ken and Denise

Tasteful Condo in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Ken's condo was ideal. He has it set up with everything you'll need and then some. It is nicely decorated and comfortable. The condo is located on one of the nicest beaches in Puerto Aventuras. The pool is huge with plenty of lounge chairs. There are nice palapas on the beach. The condo is mere minutes away from the town and restaurants. I would highly recommend Ken's place. He was also very easy to work with and responsive. I would gladly stay here again.

Owner's Response: Gwenn, Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such a nice review! I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Our private beach, beautiful swimming pools and location next to the village square is what sold us on this property. It is truly a dream vacation home for us and we are blessed to be able to share it with wonderful guests such as yourself! We are fortunate to have several guests return year after year to stay with us. We hope you will be one of those and come back to stay with us again soon. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Sincerely, Ken and Denise

Blissful Solitude

  • 5 of 5

This place is the definition or relaxation!! We gathered here as a family of 15, each renting condos at Villa del Mar. I will forever miss and remember the beautiful sounds of the crashing waves and songs from the birds each morning. The beach is clean, quiet and inviting. Our group's 8 children (ages 3-17) had an absolute blast playing in the ocean, building sand castles, catching geckos, visiting with a large iguana and chasing agoutis (rabbit/squirrel like little creature) with a hope of catching one...boys will be boys! Our snorkeling experience just off the shore provided not only great memories but also hours of entertainment and awe. Our walks through the marina area were always so enjoyable. There is no pressure and heckling like you find in other areas. The restaurants are inviting and offer such great food and entertainment. Our nature walk through La Caleta was breath taking and a personal highlight. We didn't feel the need to spend money on tours and extras as there is so much to do all on your own. Great place to unwind and relax. Great place for children and families. The condo is roomy and clean. Ken & Denise were so great at getting back to me and answering all of our questions. Ivonne the property manager had all of our groceries ready in the condo for upon our arrival for a small fee...This meant cold beer and fresh groceries to enjoy as soon as you put your luggage down! Jose the security guard on the grounds was such a friendly and helpful guy! He was a pleasure to meet and talk to! This little gem of a location is the real deal if quiet and relaxation is what you are seeking. We plan to return again!!

We feel so blessed to have this piece of paradise and tare happy to be able to share it with such wonderful people. When we found this place we knew we had to purchase it. I think it is the best location in all of the Riviera Maya! We too enjoy the fantastic private beach and snorkeling! We want our home to be your vacation home and return year after year. Please let us know if you have any ideas of how we can make things better for you. Hope to have you return soon! Ken & Denise

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

Beautiful Property Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

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!
