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…

Perfect! It lived up to every expectation!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented numerous Villas throughout Mexico, and this was the best property - and best value - I've ever found. 4 married couples had all the privacy they could ever want, with 4 public areas to converse in, a private bathroom for each bedroom, our own slice of beach, and the BEST behaved dogs I've ever been around. They actually sat and guarded us whenever we were outside, completely silent, requiring no attention from us at all. They made the place feel even more homey than expected. Walking up the beach with Bonita as she wagged her tail was the highlight of every day.

Wayner and Rosa kept the place spotless throughout the week, and her cooking was delicious. The Cenote down the street was beautiful, although a little busier than I thought it might be. But the added car traffic did not bother us a bit.

The home felt huge to us! It is so beautifully built, with gorgeous tile work throughout. We never even used the balcony deck or the beautiful rooftop. There was always purified water in pitchers in each bedroom in addition to the 10 gallon dispenser in the kitchen. All cooking utensils were quality.

All in all, it was a 10. I HIGHLY recommend it this property!

Beautiful, clean, friendly, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A group of nine ladies stayed a week in this beautiful home and had a fantastic time. The house and property is very well maintained by Wayner and Rosa. Three very friendly and sweet dogs (Bonita, Ziggy and Flora) stay at the property too. Notes: snorkel gear can be rent at the cenote across the street. We rented vans so we could go to Solomon Bay (Chimicos restaurant), Coba ruins, Akumal (swim with turtles) and beach road in tulum. No parking available on beach road so you may want to take a cab (Wayner can help with that). We ate at Ana y Jose and it was delicious. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Couldn't have been better!

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!
