Owners have history of fraud - don't stay here!
Let me preface this by saying we're a low maintenance family from Tulsa, OK. I'm a dual American & Canadian citizen. Educated, respectful, down to earth, clean, we have rental properties ourselves (understand how this industry works), and we definitely don't ever lie or mislead. This review is 100% true and accurate. After dropping thousands in flights for my family, the day before we are to fly out, I get a call from the Owner that the house we booked (the one in the pics) isn't actually available, there was somehow a mixup! But, that they have another home on the property we can stay at (bait and switch). This was obviously a massive concern, but we didn't really have a choice. The house was not as advertised, zero beach view. The worst part is, the owners are total fraudsters. I even found articles written about them online, they got exposed a few years ago for a real estate scam, where they were taking foreigners down payments for homes, and then stealing from them. So, 5 days into our 11 night stay, I get a text that I somehow now owe an expensive security deposit that they missed charging initially and I needed to pay it in cash to the Owner that same day or I'd have to leave. When I refused to pay it (I'd already pre-paid all contractual fees via VRBO!), they did a 180 in their behavior. They even started coming into the house while we were gone, and taking out pans, towels, silverware, etc. They stopped cleaning daily (even though they charge you a daily cleaning fee regardless). They live right on the property, and will be constantly looking for reasons to charge you. Long story short, they continued to lie to us, and I would not trust them anymore. I refused to pay the extra and expensive security deposit in cash because it's Mexico, and we had already pre-paid the full 11 night stay in advance, without issue. You can't ask me 5 days in to pay an additional expensive security deposit! They kicked us out 2 nights before check out. So, I'm scrambling with my wife and 4 kids, where to find a place to stay in freaking Mexico, the same day I'm out. Crazy! Btw, internet is non-existent here, no matter what they tell you (this was the least of our worries though). Can't trust anything these people say, they are complete fraudsters and manipulators, and that's how they have always lived their life. No matter your desperation, don't stay here, not worth it. Total nightmare trip for us, and will never stay here again.
Vera and Dan have it dialed in pretty good.
Watch the sergassum seaweed report because it does affect beach access and water swimmability.
Thanks for the great review. Yes, the seaweed comes and goes according to the winds, ...and we never know when it’s coming. Some years we don’t have it. It is possible to take the kayaks past it, then the water is clear. Right now, we have no seaweed at all. Anyway, glad u had a good time, looking forward to seeing u again.
We had a great time at the property. It is as described. Very private ...very nice natural beach. We didn’t miss TV however Internet would be nice but we found a strong signal on the beach to catch up on emails and post Facebook pictures. Overall it was a great trip Beautiful weather and a true Mexican experience.
This was our 2nd year staying here. It's amazing. Bring bug spray and buy some citronella candles on the way into town. Don't forget to feed Pluto! He's the sweetest pup in all of Mexico. We love Daniel and Thomas and Esther. They will take care of you if you take care of thew house. Thank you!!! Marty and Suzanne
You guys are the most adorable honeymoon couple, and we hope you will spend your next honeymoon with us.We promise you fresh coconuts for breakfast.
We will make sure there are citronella candles on hand. Pluto loves u, and misses you. Gracias verá y Dan
We loved our stay. If your looking for the stay on the deserted island this is it, yet it is close enough to restaurants in Tulum to go every night. I would love to stay longer, unfortunately work in the real world calls. The only slight negative was the seaweed; which has been a problem along the whole coast, not just here. I can't wait to go back!
