Beautiful property in a safe gated community
This place is more beautiful in person the pictures don't do it justice. The owners were very communicative and helpful, answering every question with detail in an expedited manner. They helped us make arrangements for transfers to and from the airport and also provided us with recommendations for a chef to make our Thanksgiving dinner.
The property is located right on the water but it's really rocky and rough immediately out front of the house. The view is spectacular. We took a short walk alone by the water to a swimmable beach.
The gated community is so safe. The driver who drove us said that it was one of the safest communities in Quintana Roo. My son swam with the dolphins, he did the picture package that includes the manatee and seal pictures too. You get a CD of the pictures plus one print but the resolution is amazing and it was so reasonably priced around $250.
The house itself is so well appointed. There's Netflix on the TV, but we didn't really have time for TV. There's bottled water available all the time. The hosts filled a fridge with snacks and beer for our arrival.
There's one bedroom upstairs with 4 full size beds and it's own bathroom, 4 of us stayed together here because the room was so huge and the views so beautiful. The other huge room has one big bed and its own bathroom. Across the hallway are 2 more bedrooms, one with a full size bed and the other with a queen, I think they each had their own bathrooms too. There are 2 more huge bedrooms at ground level. We didn't even occupy 2 of the rooms.
The maid was so nice, she was constantly tidying up and even brought us some tacos on her day off. Having her there was a real treat.
One word of caution, you may not flush any paper down the toilet. It was something unusual for us, we brought disposable doggie bags to use for the TP. Also not all rooms have AC.
All in all a wonderful stay and we would definitely come back here again.
Wonderful Time in Mexico
We have stayed in the Playa del Carmen and Tulum area many times, at both resorts and vacation villas, but never before in Puerto Aventuras. What a gem of a find! We rented golf carts and had a great time visiting all the fantastic restaurants, shops and even a quaint and magical little outdoor spa right across from the house. When we did decide to venture out to dinner and shopping in Playa del Carmen, it was easy to grab a taxi from the resort nearby.
The house itself is beautifully unique, with Mexican art and decor throughout in vibrant and gorgeous colors. We had plenty of room for our three families, with a lot of kids. We all agreed that we had never slept so well, listening to the crashing waves and feeling the ocean breeze. The kids loved the pool and the wildlife (iguanas!) and enjoyed exploring the tide pools. Snorkeling from behind the house was fantastic on days when the waves were calm and a sandy beach was just a short walk (or swim) down the beach. The area felt very safe and was convenient to both PdC and Tulum. The owners, Jan and Gigi, were so helpful with many suggestions of places to go and things to see. We were trying to figure out how to stay in Mexico before our vacation was over and now can't wait to go back.
Casa Las Garzes
Stunning view of the sea, magnificent pool, generous bedrooms, the most beautifully decorated home in Mexico. The owners have clearly put a lot of love and energy into creating a beautiful home by the sea which can house an infinite number of people. The community itself is gated well-maintained and felt completely safe. Multiple restaurants to satisfy even the pickiest eaters. Practically your own aquarium right in the neighborhood. If you want a relaxing vacation just to sit by the beautiful sea or you want to enjoy the delights of Playa and Tulum this is a most beautiful place to make your homebase. Can't wait to go back!
Girls week Mexican style
Villa Las Garza was beautiful. The location was fantastic, the pool perfect. Great snorkeling off the back. Lots of room in the house, beautifully decorated but still comfortable. Beautiful white sand beaches with in 5 min of the house, close enough to Playa and Cancun to shop, and plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Loved it and would recommend it to anyone wanting a fabulous warm weather vacation.
Relax and kick off your shoes
Casa las Garzas is a relaxing, well equipped and beautifully furnished home. There is everything you need to spend an entire day relaxing in the pool, snorkeling right off the rocky beach beyond the pool and walking into Puerto Aventuras village for dinner or karaoke night which is exactly what my group of ladies did one day. If you rent a car, you can visit all the local attractions and head to Playa del Carmen for a great dinner and shopping and people watching. The owners have everything you need: snorkel equipment, lots of towels, bottled water, daily maid service and a fabulous ocean view. Six privately situated bedrooms & bathrooms await you. Leave the sliding glass doors open for the sound of waves & ocean breezes at night. Or if it is too hot, turn on the AC located in each bedroom. A large grocery store is nearby. It is a truly relaxing paradise.
I have heard you ladies made quite an impression in town....come and rent again next year!
I had a wonderful time with beautiful waterfront views and a well kept house. Definitely recommend !
