About Don Gill

The property is owned and operated by a family form South Louisiana that believes in southern hospitality no matter where the property is located.

Don Gill purchased this villa in 2000

Why Don Gill chose Akumal

The proximity of the Cancun Airport, the sightseeing and numerous activities in the area and the privacy of the villa's location. The property is within walking distance of many restaurants, grocery stores, laundries, fishing charters and dive shops. also, the area is very safe, we sleep with doors and windows unlocked. children and women can walk alone at night and feel very safe and comfortable.

What makes this villa unique

Quiet, relaxed, laid back. The best feature is an intimate private swimming pool and beach area diverse enough to accommodate anything from modest family activities to an environment that is conducive for couples wanting to enjoy a more intimate, romantic, European style atmosphere.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5
I loved my stay at this house on Half Moon Bay! Every morning to we woke up to beautiful views and every evening we sat outside and watched the sun set. The house is in a great location with lots of restaurants and shops nearby and is close to lots of activities. The house is really roomy and is designed in such a way that bedrooms are spread out and allow for privacy. All the bedrooms have a/c. We found that it had all the comforts of home!

Favorite places

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in this property numerous times and I never tire of the views, convenience and atmosphere here. The villa is well kept and clean. You get an awesome sunrise every morning and a perfect view of Half Moon Bay. There are restaurants, bars and shopping all nearby(within easy walking distance). You can snorkel right from the beach behind the property and there is a dive operator just 2 doors from the villa.Whenever I think of vacations, this is always the first place that comes to mind. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a unique and comfortable getaway.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
One of the best vacations I've ever had was renting the house in Akumal! Our family had so much fun enjoying all of the things that the area has to offer. We enjoyed our stay at the house. It was big enough for us to spread out and without everyone feeling like they were on top of each other. We froze a lot of pre-made meals that we took with us, what we call "heat and eat", and while we all took turns preparing our evening meal, the rest played board games, went beach combing or enjoyed the pool. I realize that it's not everyone's "thing" to cook while on vacation, but since there was 11 of us, it saved us a lot of time and money. Outside there are plenty of lounge chairs, and we really liked sitting outside and just doing nothing but soaking up the rays or reading. Just a note: the beach directly in front of the house is rocky, but all you have to do is walk a few yards down to get to a white sane beach. But the view from the living room and patio is spectacular, and the house is designed to take advantage of the view. If you're looking for comfort and fun without pretentiousness, then I would recommend this house.

WE LOVE THIS PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We're probably partial, but we love this place so much that we've kept going back for years. We've even asked our kids (all older now) if they'd like to go someplace else and their response is always the same... they want to go "home". That's how they view Akumal and the house. We've made many happy family memories there that will last a life time and we hope that one day they're taking their children there. There's just so much to do in the area. The house is accommodating and comfortable. We like hanging out by the pool, BBQ'ing, cooking the fish we caught, and playing games at the dining room table. When we want to eat out, there are many good restaurants nearby. We've found it's best to have a car simply because we like to explore. The house is in a wonderful location and the price can't be beat. It comes with daily maid service, fresh towels are always available, and there's plenty of bottled water supplied as needed in a 5 gallon water dispenser. The house also has Wi-fi, something that's essential for us. We're going back to the house again this year, and we can't wait!

Perfect place to be!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have been any more happy with the house. It was spacious and comfortable. The way the bedrooms were situated allowed for lots of privacy. It would be a good place for couples or a large family. All the bedrooms had a/c. I was worried about the fact that the living room didn't have it, however, we opened the 2 large sliding glass doors along the beachfront, and the front door, and the cross breezes were fantastic! There is a couple that clean the house and pool every day and we understand that they've been employed by the owner for years. The kitchen is perfectly set up if you want to make a meal yourselves, but there are restaurants within walking distance. It's in a great location in Akumal, far away from the hustle of Cancun and the dozens of huge resorts. I look forward to a return visit.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has rented this home several times over the years where we have created some really great vacation memories. The home is in a perfect location near several sightseeing activities such as snorkeling, beaches, Mayan ruins, water parks and restaurants. Our favorite experiences have been with a company called Edventure Tours. They are Tulum's number one tour company on Trip Advisor.
The home is very roomy, with a large living room dining room area which overlooks the pool, patio and beach area and has cable TV, internet and a DVD player. A fully stocked kitchen makes cooking a breeze after stopping at one of the many grocery stores on the way from the airport. (Cancun has a Wal-Mart and Playa Del Carmen has a Sam's Club for larger portioned bulk buying.)
There is an outdoor charcoal grill which we used to cook our catch of the day after deep sea fishing. We chartered a boat for 3 hours for only $150 for 5 people on Akumal Bay Beach. You are guaranteed a sea turtle sighting while snorkeling! This beach is located to the right after you pass through the arched wall of Akumal. If you want to take a break from cooking, La Buena Vida Restaurant is located just a few doors down and serves excellent food! Day trips to Cozumel or Isla Mujeres via the ferry are highly recommended if you have a rental car.
