  • 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."

  • Paradise!

    "We just returned from 2 weeks at Casa Koolba and are already dreaming of the next time we'll be able to go. The house is well maintained and has comfortable seating on the deck that overlooks the most beautiful stretch of beach I've ever seen. We spent quite a bit of time on the beach lounges and in the hammocks which is well shaded if you don't want to be in the direct sun all day. By the way the wifi does reach the beach. We brought our Bose speaker and it worked great. We kayaked ( there is one) or snorkeled (there are several masks, snorkels and fins) every day and saw many beautiful fish and rays. We visited Chamicos, just at the end of the bay, several times while we were there to enjoy the ceviche, delicious! The property manager, Maricarmen, came by and we had a wonderful visit. She's very personable and wanted to make sure that we were well taken care of. She's a local so she can give you tips on restaurants, excursions, etc.. We were well taken care of by Manuel and his wife Marta. Really sweet people and hard workers. Manuel is a wonderful chef also! I would highly recommend the Gouda stuffed, bacon wrapped shrimp. We hope to return for a 3rd visit soon!"

  • Even better than the pictures

    "I searched long and hard for a nice place to take my family in Tulum. We're a family of six with four kids (23, 21, 18, and 15 - girl, boy, girl, boy). We flew into Cancun from Maryland and rented a van and drove to Tulum. We stopped off along the way in Playa de Carmen for a late lunch and some high energy fun. We arrived as it was getting dark so we were a bit worried about finding it. Luis, the building supervisor, met us at the gate to let us in. (Let me also mention that Luis is AWESOME. He is friendly, attentive and responsive to any needs, and has a great attitude. He kept our beach clean and clear of any seaweed, moved our cushions back and forth to the waterfront palapas, and always has a smile. And why wouldn't he? He works in Paradise. The owner, Luu, is awesome as well. She is truly vested in our family's best interest and aims to please - but again, this place does most of the work by itself) Our girls had their own KING size bed EACH in their own room w their own bathroom, the boys had their own bed (one was a double bed, the other a single) and their own bathroom, and my wife and I took the back bedroom, queen bed, with its own bathroom. The setup was perfect. The living area was huge and enjoyed every day and night. We made breakfast every morning. There is a store about 8 minutes away by car and it is a Mexican Super WalMart w/ EVERYTHING you could possibly need. (you can't buy beer until after 9 AM. Lol. My bad on that one. And btw, a 12 pack of Corona was $5! Also: bring Mexican pesos instead of US dollars - they go farther). Renting a van was A LOT easier than I anticipated. It made us very portable. Every day was a different adventure: many cenotes to explore (you HAVE to see and experience them!), Tulum ruins, natural parks, fishing trips, snorkeling, the WORKS. I have two Vegans in the family and there were TWO outstanding vegan restaurants within walking distance from the place: "Restaurau" and "Charlie's Vegan Tacos". And Charlie is a super cool dude. Each meal we had was a good as the next and there are SO many to choose from. There is a brick oven pizza place about 150 steps away (where my kids hit three different times late!). The concrete deck is about 45 steps to the water. Palapas and beach recliners are for US and us only to use. There is a beachfront bar next door! And boy do the stars fill the night sky. Amazing. Man, this was fun to write as I revisited Tulum and our awesome vacation."

  • A Perfect Mexico Getaway

    "The Villa is stunningly beautiful- spacious bedrooms and bathrooms and plenty of space to lounge inside or out. The grounds and pool are gorgeous. The staff is attentive to your every need. We had a fabulous week- 6 parents and 9 big kids ages 17 to 24. Everyone loved the house and wants to return!"
