The property is exactly as described. Gated community, a short walk from villa to the pool and private beach. Simply gorgeous! The villa itself was spacious...an open concept living room, adjacent well equipped kitchen and dining area. Upstairs were 3 large bedrooms, and I noticed in one of the closets 2 very comfortable looking cots. There was also an ensuite and another bathroom off the other 2 bedrooms. All were very nicely decorated. There's also a brand new washer and dryer combo, which was just great to be able to throw sandy towels and swim suits into the washer when arriving home from the beach.
The area itself is just great...short drives to other nearby beaches and stores. Barry recommended that we visit the Cabo Rajo lighthouse, which has amazing cliffside views, and a nearby secluded beach which was truly one of the most gorgeous beaches I have ever seen in my life! Highly recommend this side-trip. We also very much enjoyed a public beach that we called the Ice Cream beach..about a 5 minute drive from the villa. We called it that because it had a bar, restaurant and ice cream parlor. Although it is a public beach, it seemed never to be overly crowded and the water was nice and calm for fraidy cats like me. If you like surf though, there's plenty of it at other nearby beaches.
Barry was terrific. He knows the area very very well and provided us with all sorts of day trips and info.
I would highly recommend this property to both families and for a romantic get-away.
