Another family reunion here at Villa Gauguin.

The house was very interesting to observe. It is so elegantly simple and spacious!

It was so nice to have the fabulous views unobstructed.

MEMORABLE VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
This property is lovely and in a wonderful location. The home is well equipped for 14 people. We had 8 adults and 6 children in our group and were very comfortable. We were able to go snorkeling practically from the back door. We also used the pool a lot for the kids! We requested 3 dinners and 2 breakfasts, the food was beautifully presented and fresh and delicious. Francisco and Gladis were at hand when we needed them but were unobtrusive and gracious.
We went into town several times. The town is quaint and has several good places to eat. Our favorite restaurant was laBuena Vida, it has a great setting right on the beach and a great bar. The kids played in the sand while we waited for our food. We would definitely recommend Villa Gauguin and would love to return.
We loved the beach in town and we were thrilled to see many turtles, stingrays and other fish, the water is clear and shallow a good distance out.
The only issue we had was that there was not enough hot water even first thing in the morning, and not enough beach towels as we used them up each day, it was had for Francisco and Gladis to keep up with all of them!

Owner's Response: Dear Larry,

Thanks a lot for your comments.
We have identified the problem with the hot water pipes and solved it.
We hope to see you back in Villa Gauguin soon

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
The best vacation house and location ever! The house itself is stunning and well laid out, but the view from the balconies and back porch even better. The snorkeling - right out the backyard - is among the best we've ever done. Francisco and Gladys were wonderful housekeepers, hosts, and cooks. We can't wait to return!

WONDERFUL STAY IN AKUMAL!

  • 4 of 5
What a wonderful time we had in Akumal! The house was just as lovely as in the pictures, and the location was ideal. We enjoyed the short run (less than one mile) into town every morning, as a way to get some exercise during the stay. The Italian restuarant across the street had great food and was very accomodating of our big group. The lunches & dinner were very good Mexican dishes, and we were also able to prepare 'special' request items at will.

Only improvement idea would be to add a washer & dryer, but since we knew about this beforehand, we were prepared. Thanks for a great stay.

GREAT HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
Gladys and Francisco made a wonderful holiday a perfect one! Akumal and Villa Gauguin make for a wonderful place to spend a holiday. From our welcome and departure Francisco and Gladys were helpful, kind and always smiling. The location on Yal-Ku lagoon is perfect. There is a villa on one side but the other side does not have a neighbor. It is a short walk down the rocks to an easy spot to slide in and out of the water for snorkeling. Being down the road a bit from Akumal was great. It was quiet, safe and waking up to the sunrise over the lagoon was truly picturesque. The home and grounds were in excellent condition. Every morning Gladys and Francisco would take care of the clean-up in the house as well as changing out linens and towels. As a matter of fact, we arrived around 7:45 at night and just wanted to get settled, briefly unpack and relax before going to bed. After heading out for the a day, Gladys took our clothes and placed them in our closet for us. A nice touch to say the least. The house was also fully equipped with anything we needed for food preparation. We were also greeted with a huge fruit and goodie basket that lasted the entire week of our stay. I would highly recommend this villa for a great holiday vacation! We will be back!

VILLA GAUGUIN IS ART

  • 5 of 5
The pictures really don't do this Villa justice. The Villa is surrounded by glass and water. The rooms all offer high ceilings, and a modern, airy feel. There was nothing we didn't have. Plus, the Villa overlooks Ya-Ku Lagoon, which typically requires an entry-fee the snorkeling is so good. Unlike others, we could just put on our fins and snorkel mask and walk out our back yard! You also have groundskeepers onsight to assist with any questions or troubles that may arise. Perfect stay and a lovely home.

Villa Gauguin is located in Akumal, without doubt the quietest and most picturesque village at the heart of the Mayan Riviera.

Akumal, “Turtle’s nest” in Mayan, is a favorite place for the sea turtles to lay their eggs. Akumal has two bays with beautiful beaches, ideal for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving as the corral reef is very closed to the coastline. In the surroundings of Akumal, there are some 200 entrances to the “cenotes”, subterranean caves with depths up to 170 yards and very clear waters. The main centers for scuba diving in “cenotes” are in Akumal.

For the golf fanatics,the new Rivera Maya Golf Club of Bahia Principe is only 10 minutes away from the house
