About Marcia Gummerson

My husband and I met in highschool in our hometown in the mid-west where we have resided all of our lives. I am a retired special ed. teacher and my husband is a retired plumbing estimator. We have two adult children, two delightful grandchildren and twins on the way! We serve as foster parents for Healing the Children and are active in animal rescue.

Marcia Gummerson purchased this house in 2005

Why Marcia Gummerson chose Quintana Roo

We bought the property many years before building the villa. The area was just beginning to be developed and it provided a wealth of natural treasures such as the second largest coral reef in the world and the amazing Manatee cenote. It is the snokelers or divers paradise. Tankah is also very close to so many attractions such as the Tulum ruins, Coba, Xel Ha and many others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time! We hated to leave! Your home is just beautiful! It was the perfect size for our two families. The beach was gorgeous and we snorkeled all over the bay almost every day…Thanks again for allowing us to share your beautiful home! It was the best place we’ve ever stayed in Mexico…

What a great place. Beautiful house. Kind and helpful caretakers. Lovely views. Perfect location right on the beach with a restaurant next door. We were four adult couples, but this house would also be great for families. I plan to return with my kids.

The absolute best place I've ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

Our family came down to get together for the first time in years and to celebrate my daughters 3rd birthday. This place is perfect - Marcia is an awesome owner and was a huge help from day one. Wayner and Rosa make the entire trip something super special. DO NOT miss her cooking. By far the best meals we had during out vacation. This is a truly special place. So....... we booking it again for her 4th birthday !!!!! Couldn't resist. Thanks for having such and great place for families to gather and relax.

Our family of six (from 16 to 60) recently spent six days at this great place on Tankah Bay. I can't say enough great things about it. Everything was perfect. The house was in excellent condition, and it was kept clean throughout our stay by the on-site caretakers. The four bedrooms were top notch and the common areas were comfortable and inviting. I can't decide which was better: dipping in the pool in the front yard, swimming in the Caribbean in the back yard or sitting on the deck sipping margaritas and enjoying the beautiful scenery.. We had a car and took several trips around the area but you could stay in this place without one. We plan to come back.

This is my first ever review of anything, which indicates how much we enjoyed the villa! We stayed a week with our four adult children. The pictures will not disappoint. Our questions were addressed promptly via email. Waynor and Rosa took great care of us and answered all our questions. We had Rosa cook four dinners and 2 breakfasts, all wonderful (but don't miss her enchiladas!). This is an amazingly spacious place,and great bathrooms attached to each bedroom. We loved Ziggy beach, as recommended by Waynor. We explored Tulum, visited the ruins, snorkeled in a cenote, and took a fishing excursion (Captain Jackmout of Playa).... Do that early in the week so you can enjoy the huge fish! The best was family time at the villa, whether it was around the table with the breeze or relaxing on the beach. You will not be disappointed in this place!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family was looking for a house to rent in the Tulum area to celebrate a big year for us all. We are so glad we found Villa Gummerson! I truly cannot say enough great things about our visit. Not only was the home spectacular, Wayner and Rosa, the caretakers, are exceptional. Wayner was able to help with anything we needed, whether it was calling for a taxi, maintaining the gorgeous pool, or starting the mesquite for the barbeque. He recommended places to eat (all of them were fantastic!), places to shop... Rosa took immaculate care of the home and prepared some amazing meals. I could write a whole review just on how wonderful they were! The en-suites for each bedroom suited our families perfectly. Enough privacy for everyone with plenty of room to gather as a family. The pool was tiled and gorgeous: it was our favorite thing to go from the pool (floating on all the great pool toys!) to the beach side and back again. The home is in such a perfect location, on a quiet bay close to Tulum - with just a quick drive (10-15 minutes) into town or the resort areas. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Each room had nice linens and towels... there was not one thing we "did without" the whole time. The owner, Marcia, was such a pleasure to deal with. She had excellent communication through the entire trip and followed up when we returned to make sure it was all we could have wanted. I think our families favorite part of the trip was the resident dogs! Ziggy, Bonita, Flora and Ruby such a great addition to our vacation! Five stars does not seem like enough for this home... we can hardly wait until we are back at Villa Gummerson again!

The Best Beach Home We Have Ever Rented

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in dozens of high-end vacation rentals during our travels around the world, and can honestly say that we have never experienced a home as lovely as Villa Gummerson. The home has been equipped with a truly relaxing vacation in mind, from the tons of kitchen equipment to the nice, heavy beach towels and pool toys. Four large bedrooms with en-suite baths provide privacy for friends and family, and the huge living space with another half-bath has plenty of room for everyone to hang out and watch DVDs, play games, or just read one of the many books in the library. The owners even thought of providing playing cards, something we always forget! The house, pool, and private beach are kept impeccably clean and functioning perfectly by Wayner and Rosa, the resident caretaker and housekeeper. Rosa is also an amazing cook, and we found that we'd rather stay in and enjoy her fabulous cuisine than go out to a restaurant for dinner. Be sure to ask for her Chicken Enchiladas and Cochinita Pibil - the best we've ever had. Dogs Ziggy and Flora keep you feeling well-protected and are a lovely addition to the home, however, in the quiet, security-gated neighborhood of Tankah one never feels like security is an issue. As one other reviewer noted, the photos of the home don't do it justice, however, they provide an excellent idea of what to expect when you arrive at this amazing property. We have already recommended Villa Gummerson to several other family members and friends, and are busy planning our next trip back. All other vacation rentals pale when compared to this gorgeous, comfortable, thoroughly and thoughtfully appointed, and beautifully maintained home. We feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay here!
