  • Beautiful, comfortable condo, ideal for family with young children

    "Our family is wrapping up a fabulous week on Half Moon Bay. This unit is tastefully decorated and has every amenity we could have wanted. We especially appreciated the children's sized life jackets, pool noodles and boogie boards, perfect for our kids to play in the water and use snorkeling. There were also several pairs of adult fins which was great as I didn't bring my own pair (husband did). The beds were quite possibly the best part. They are firm mattresses but feel like clouds thanks to the memory foam topper. Even our kids said it was the best they'd slept in a long time. The kitchen is small but well-stocked with good quality cooking items so we were able to cook quite a few of our own meals. We also enjoyed several meals at Buena Vida up the beach, where they have an even larger swimming pool than Lol Kanaab, a fun alternative for our kids when the bay got too rough and the condo pool lost its luster (a very nice pool but small). We all loved snorkeling in Half Moon Bay our first day, when visibility was perfect and the water was glassy calm, but the winds picked up after that and it was too rough. We snorkeled instead at Yal-ku up the road and another day in Akumal Bay, which was also rough but clear enough to see quite a few sea turtles. Sandra was always very responsive with our questions and provides a nice folder of local information in the condo, which was very useful. We hope to return to enjoy this gorgeous, tranquil spot again soon."

  • Excellent experience - good place for large family

    "We had a great time at Villa Gaugin for our 10 day trip in April 2016, and everything was just as we hoped. This would be a great choice especially if you have a large family or group and are into the contemporary design of the house and furnishings vs. more typical palapa-style rentals. - The house is extremely spacious (actually even bigger than it seems in the photos). There was a LOT of room for our 9 guests, two couples and 5 kids, and it would certainly not have felt crowded at all to have another couple guests. - The location is perfect for snorkeling into the Yal Ku lagoon -- no need to walk or drive and there are restaurants and activities nearby. - The water directly in front of the house was also fairly well protected so it was usually calm enough for swimming except in very high winds -The pool was always nice and is sized well for kids to play in. - The kitchen is well set up and has a higher grade of materials than many others. We did our own cooking and it all worked well. - The house was kept very clean by the on-site caretakers. - The cell phone coverage and wifi at the house is excellent, much better than I have come to expect after four or five trips to this area in recent years."

  • Better than EVER expected!

    "Right from the first step at booking the experience was wonderful. Alexis was accommodating and very patient with all of our questions. We reviewed many, many other properties before we decided that Casa Playa Del Caribe was the best option - AND WAS IT EVER! Terrific house - we were 4 couples, exceptional beach and Pancho and Mercedes, I cannot say enough. They are incredible, very warm and welcoming. Mercedes is a wonderful cook and we enjoyed all of her meals. The house was very clean. The pictures do not do it justice. We walked into Akumal a couple of times but we were always excited to come "home" - beach was better and food was MUCH better. We are counting the days until our next trip!"

  • Relaxing HOME, GREAT food and best beach in the area

    "This house lives like a home! The service provided by Mirna and her husband in cooking and cleaning should not be missed! I wanted to bring Mirna home with me. I have never had a vacation where I looked forward to the meals as much as this other than when I went to Italian Cooking School! The value of having the meals at home is incredible. We walked the beach every day and felt that our location was the best actual beach/sand in the bay area. We had Mirna cook a late breakfast and an earlier dinner and snacked at lunch. You can pre-order groceries to be delivered to the house. There is a man- Cesar, who you can arrange to pick you up at the airport and drop you, which I highly recommend. It's not a bad walk on the beach to town if you need to pick up extras at the grocery. The house is well thought out for privacy and sound. Pick up your alcohol needs on the way from the airport and you're set! I will go back to this house in a heartbeat. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable."
