Luxurious stay in a perfect location

Yup, you read the title right. I thought it was too good to be true so I was very cautious up to the point of almost suspicious. Jesus, the main contact person was nice enough to answer all my emails. He has Skype account that you can use to call or chat with him. Carlos, the villa manager and second point of contact is the sweetest and most accommodating manager I've met. One call and he's right at your door step to check the problem and offer a solution right away. I would hire Carlos to manage my property in a heart beat. Delia and Amir, both the house helpers could not speak English at all but a little bit of sign language is enough for the communication. They are both friendly and hard working.
Below is a summary of our stay at the villa;
Location, amenities, layout - The gated villa is walking distance from the 5th Avenue. There are lots of bars, restaurants and dance clubs on that area. The security guards knows us already when we walk home around 4 AM a bit drunk but still very happy and can walk straight. You will also be happy to know the villa is only about two blocks away from the white sand beach. There's not a lot of people on the beach. It always feel like we have our own beach.
Cleanliness - Delia always comes around 10 AM to clean the house. She's very polite and hard working. We never lost any item in the house so Delia and Amir are very trust worthy. I would suggest you keep your passport in the safe though. When we were there, we would leave our iPads, laptops and other gadgets laying around.
Customer Service - I wish I can give the owner 6 stars and also Carlos, Delia and Amir.
Activities - Eating is our main activity (joke). The place is near the expensive restaurants on the 5th avenue, beach front locally operated restaurants and food carts. Feel free to choose. You can have a meal for $4 or $18. We all prefer to eat at pop and moms restaurant and save our money for drinks and clubbing later.
We swam a lot as well. The beach is just so close to the villa.
Clubbing - Oh well, the place is near Senior Frog. Just check the Lonely Planet about it ^ . ^ my lips are sealed.
Coco Maya has great music and awesome DJs so you should check it too.
Again, these places are walking distance only from the villa ^ . ^
I highly recommend this place!!!
