Amazing Vacation at Villa Arghy

I'm reading through the other 5star reviews, and they are all right on the money. The house exceeds expectations, and a feeling of relaxation takes over you the moment you step through the door into the immaculately clean house. The view, the expansive house with privacy for each bedroom, the balconies, the stars at nite, the ocean lulling you to sleep, the infinity pool, Lesley's cooking, Alfredo's caretaking, the sea turtles, it's all amazing!! I really cannot stress enough how wonderful of a place this is. Ten minutes down the road to Tulum, and you can do all the shopping, restaurants, and hanging out in town you like, only to come home and feel like you have your own private beach by the jungle. We snorkeled out and saw where some of the cenotes came out and the salt water was mixing with the fresh. Amazing schools of fish out there right off shore from the house.
The owners of Villa Arghy are very blessed to have Lesley, Angel, and Alfredo. Lesley's cooking is amazing, as I mentioned above, and we really appreciated the bottled water available, and purified ice in the freezer for evening happy hour. In addition to amazing meals (we had the shrimp, chili rellanos, fish, and chicken fajitas), Lesley gave us excellent local advice, took care of the house duties so well that I've never felt so pampered, and just in general seemed to have a gift for appearing just as we had a question or a request. Alfredo made sure we got to see the sea turtle babies migration to the ocean, and both in general were just so thoughtful. An example that comes to mind is that we'd spent the day south of Tulum on dirt roads, and the back windows of the rental cars were totally dirty and you couldn't see through them to back up or generally see behind you. We came out the next morning, and Alfredo had hosed off the back windows for us! I'm so spoiled after this vacation, I don't know how we're going to be able to top it! Very rarely do we visit the same area twice on our adventures, but this one, we will definitely be coming back to!
The only advise I would give is that if you have small children, make sure they wear swim shoes in the pool area, and just around the house in general. This house, like all of them we saw on our vacation, has alot of tile and concrete, and can scrape up tender skin.
