Exceeded expectations !
Wow! We thought we were renting a fabulous home in a great location, and we were correct! What we didn’t know was that we would also get a detailed write up of recommendations for restaurants, shopping and excursions, great referrals to a local driver and a wonderful and attentive housekeeper and property manager. What an added benefit! The house is situated 1/2 block from a gorgeous beach, the pool and the house are amazing and we had a terrific week. The owner, Gloria, was extremely helpful in providing tips to plan our trip and all of her recommendations were accurate and wonderful. We used Absolute Adventure Tours for a day trip to 3 cenotes and used Gloria’s driver for a day trip to Coba and Tulum ruins - both trips well worth it and a great break from the beach. We can’t recommend this rental more highly! Our family of 5 (3 young adults and 2 60-ish parents) had a great week!
Great place, great service
We enjoyed a great stay at Villa Golondrina. The description is most accurate. Location is perfect, second row from the beach, very quiet, 15 mins walk from downtown Playa via the beach or the street. Owner Gloria provides a lot of help and insights to prepare the trip, and was very accommodating to all requests. Sr Abel and Sra Lucy provide excellent service to take care of the house and the grounds, making your life very comfortable and easy. If anything that could be improved, price is on the high side for the Holidays.
Villa La Golondrina is just as advertised; a comfortable and welcoming retreat just a few steps to the beach, and a quick walk to Playa Del Carmen. Our family of five adults and four little ones (including a baby) recently stayed there for 10 days and enjoyed every minute. The pool is big and nearly always shaded which provides a nice escape from the beach when needed. The house itself is squeaky clean, with comfortable beds, air conditioning in each room, and fans everywhere to help you beat the heat. Everything we could've needed was there, from beach chairs, umbrellas and toys, to chip clips for leftover snacks. And the staff was unbeatable. Luci, the housekeeper kept everything spotless, Sr. Abel, made sure the pool and yard were kept up each day, and Angeles, the cook we hired for our stay, fed us SO WELL. The owner also kept in close contact with us, checking in before and during our stay, and making herself available for any questions while we were there. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our vacation!
Our family of 8 had a delightful time at this glorious home and outstanding location.
Gloria Kelso, the owner, met us and introduced us to her lovely home and also provided us with things to do and restaurants to visit. Her housekeeper was warm and helpful as was her property manager. Our family is from Chicago and we had a perfect time in the sun. My husband and I highly recommend this rental property.
Dear Mr. ad Mrs. Hunt,
It was my pleasure to be able to meet you recently in Mexico. Now I can imagine you continuing to enjoy your 2nd week in Mexico. You and your lovely family were terrific guests; I always know these things when Luci (my housekeeper) tells me how much she enjoyed having you at Villa la Golondrina.
Again, thank you for choosing Villa la Golondrina for your family gathering holiday home. Please come again. We offer a discount to "old friends".
Have a wonderful 2019.
Best wisher to you and yours,
Beautiful villa in a perfect location
My family and I stayed in this villa for a week and had an amazing time. The house is great for a large family or group of friends. Each of the four bedrooms is spacious enough and has its own bathroom. The villa's location was perfect for our group. We were right across the street from the beach, making it easy to hop back and forth between the pool and the beach. We were a 10-15 minute walk from town (manageable even with small children) with easy access to cabs as well. The house comes with as much filtered water as you would like. Luci keeps the house clean, and Abel is available for any issues that come up during your stay. We appreciated the ability to have our kitchen stocked upon arrival and have delicious meals made by Angeles. Gloria and her daughter Stirling were great before the trip in answering any questions we had. We look forward to staying here again!
Thank you so much, Diego, for taking the time to write your glowing report.
You absolutely hit on all the major points a guest might look for in a "home-away-from-home". I appreciate very much the time you took to think of the advantages
Villa la Golondrina offers.
And, by the way, Luci gave me a full description of your beautiful and very sweet little boy with the big blue eyes. She was very animated when she expressed how dear he was during your visit.
Thank you again,
Modern amenities have been thoughtfully provided while incorporating the traditional building arts of Mexico in this lovely vacation home. A striking example of the work of Mexico's finest craftsmen is the Moorish brick dome (boboda castellana) of the dining room and two bedrooms. Main floor air-conditioned bedrooms are beautifully appointed with fabrics and treasures from Mexico and Guatemala, and include stunning bathrooms, each with a shower of lovely Mexican tile amid lush tropical vegetation. The 2nd floor master suite (air-conditioned master bedroom) is a self-contained apartment with its own small kitchen. It is connected to the main floor via an interior staircase open to the sky. The suite offers a world of its own, a private romantic space in which one can totally relax. Its luxurious bathroom features a stunning white polished circular bathtub, and from a spacious veranda, master suite guests have breathtaking views of the aqua Caribbean & morning sunrise.
