About Audra Jessen

My husband and I are native Coloradoans, however, we are defintely, 'water people', and have always been drawn to the beach. We have four children, ranging in age from 9 to 22. We are definitely busy people, but whenever we can get away, of course, we choose to go to Puerto Aventuras. Our passion is investing in real estate, and the opportunity to purchase this beautiful beachfront condominium in the most gorgeous location, was one we could not pass up! In fact, we loved the area so much that we also purchased the condo next door a year later. We truly believe that anyone who visits,will love this breathtaking resort as much as we do! Scott & Audra, Parker, CO

Why Audra Jessen chose Puerto Aventuras

When the opportunity came for us to invest in a vacation property, we knew we had to choose some place that captured ALL the elements we knew we would need to have. It had to be a beachfront location, with beautiful water, family-friendly, close to area attractions, convenience and, of course, safety. After exploring Cancun, Cozumel and the Riviera Maya, we fell in love with the gorgeous white powdery sand, charming and safe resort known as Puerto Aventuras. The friendly people, breathtaking views, brilliant ocean bay and the many activities and adventures of the area make this the perfect choice for our family and yours! We will always treasure our memories of Puerto Aventuras.

What makes this condo unique

Our most favorite activity to do in Puerto Aventuras is just to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of the ocean and beach. The waters are calm as the bay is bordered by a reef, which makes it possible for our second favorite activity, snorkeling. Equipment can be rented right off the beach. We've seen all different colors and species of fish, stingrays and even sea turtles! The children love the 'Dolphin Discovery' program which is just a five minute walk from the condo. They have swam with the dolphins 3 times now, and it is a thrill for them every time! The dolphin lagoon is surrounded by twelve charming outdoor restaurants, for either grabbing a quick snack or indulging in a steak and lobster dinner. If you want to try the adventure of deep sea fishing, the marina is also a five minute walk from the condo, and we recommend 'Captain Rick's Fishing Tours' for a morning or afternoon of terrific fishing. Your catch can be prepared by one of the restaurants for free! There are also many exciting attractions within a twenty minute drive. Visit Tulum to see the ancient Mayan ruins and gorgeous beaches. Xcaret is an eco-park that features sea turtles, snuba, underground rivers, butterly pavilion, and a spectacular Mayan cultural show. X-Plor is a brand new attraction featuring zip lines, exploring an underground paradise, and jungle exploration on an incredible amphibious ATV! The activities and attractions also include horseback riding, ATV Jungle Rides, shopping, enjoying nightlife in Playa del Carmen, scuba diving, or just relaxing under a palapa with an ice cold margarita.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This condo has been recently purchased by us and it is ready to rent. Beautiful setting, beach, and glorious white sand. The condo is beautifully decorated and upgraded with pillowtop mattresses for our guest's comfort. Also, there are DVD's for viewing, boogie boards for our guests to use, and an I-Pod docking station with speakers. There are amazing views from the terrace of the pool and ocean. A jacuzzi tub and eating area are also featured on the terrace. We are very confident that of our guests enjoy Puerto Aventuras and our condo as much as we do!

Wonderful VDM Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed @ this lovely condo in Villa Del Mar from 1-13-18 to 2-10-18. This was our 1st time trying a condo rental instead of an all-inclusive, but it won't be our last. The condo totally exceeded our expectations! It is situated to give you a great view of the pool and beach/Caribbean from both the living room and even better from the Master Bedroom. Nicely appointed furnishings and really thought the lay out was superb. Very nice tile flooring and counter tops were excellent. The furniture was very nice and bed was comfortable. There are satellite TVs in the living room and each bedroom to enjoy a show b4 bed when we wanted. We enjoyed taking afternoon coffee and our evening meal on the balcony to enjoy the late afternoon breezes and as a nice way to end our days @ the beach. The condo is situated in an ideal spot just steps from the pool and beach as well as being close to restaurants & shops of P.A. itself. We took advantage of this location when we wanted to go for lunch or dinner @ the restaurants. Recommend the ribs @ Café Ole, Shrimp from Happy Hippo and Nauti Burro makes excellent burritos. Villa Del Mar is a very peaceful and serine complex, with most people just quietly going about enjoying their days on the beach or poolside. It may get a bit loud in the early evenings when the music from Omni hotel gets going and people return from the bars, but nothing excessive by any means. With the exception of two evenings, we opened the windows every night and enjoyed the cool tropical breezes. The VDM staff are wonderful from Jose the security guard, Marcos who is always working on lawn maintenance and on the spot to bring you a lounge chair @ the beach to the pool maintenance guy who keeps that area impeccable to the maids who cleaned twice weekly, gate staff etc. You can tell they care about doing the best job possible and all were extremely friendly and welcoming!! The reef in front of the complex provides fantastic snorkeling and we were out there almost daily exploring the coral formations, colorful fish and even a few stingrays. For just wading in to cool off, there is an area protected by netted coral that is very calm and sandy. The area just outside of this is also sandy b4 you get to the start of the coral and was great to just swim for awhile here when we decided to not snorkel. Amazing, amazing condo that we'd highly recommend! Thanks Audra for sharing your fantastic property and we hope to visit again in the future!

Excellent 'as new' condition in prime location.

  • 5 of 5

This two bedroom spacious unit had been fully upgraded in 2017. The maid service, management, grounds keeping and security are excellent. Second floor provides a superior breeze to ground floor units. Only used ceiling fans and open doors for perfect comfort during our month long stay. Easy access to one of the best pools and well maintained sandy beaches in all of Puerto Aventuras. We have no reservations about a full recommendation for this unit and expect to be back asap.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a clean condo with nice furnishings. Restaurants, stores and dolphin experience are within walking distance. Attractions (Tulum, Cenotes) and Playa del Carmen are just down the road. The beach is quiet with very few kids.

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

VRBO limits the length of my review here so I will concentrate on the unit alone and log a more complete review of the property and area on tripadvisor. I can echo most of the other reviews here. First, Audra returned my RFQ almost immediately. Throughout the entire booking process, she was extremely responsive, very accommodating and very pleasant to deal with. Once there, we couldn't have been happier. Our flight arrived early and were able to get in, no problem. The property is, as described elsewhere, beautiful. The unit itself is situated nicely overlooking the pool and the beach to some extent. Inside, the master is very generous in size, has a huge, quite comfortable king size bed, and a bathroom with a nice size walk in shower. The second bedroom has, as described, a double and 3 bunk beds - you could probably fit 5 kids in there pretty easily, with its own bathroom and tub/shower. The living area is good sized with a comfortable wrap around couch, dining area, and outdoor patio with furniture. The kitchen has almost every utensil and gadget you should need - plenty of plates, drinkware, and flatware for any situation. The unit has upwards of 60 movies of all genres if you'd prefer to watch those in the evening. All appointments and fixtures are as you would expect from a wonderful luxury vacation home - not just a rental. The property is very quiet and private. The central courtyard has two huge pools each with zero entry ends, perfect for little kids but big enough to swim laps if you cared to. The beach has both a private area and a public area along the water, the best of both worlds. Chairs at both places were always plentiful. The ocean has an area behind a breakwater of calm, warm, knee deep water, perfect for little kids to spend the entire day in. Outside the breakwater is a huge bay of 4-8ft of water full of marine life and no boat traffic. My 9 and 13 daughters lived out there in their snorkeling gear with the sting rays, eagle rays, the occasional turtle and almost every fish the caribbean has to offer. The marina/dolphin discovery area is directly adjacent with everything you might need including restaurants, shops and sundries. In short, this is a wonderful area, building, and unit. If you've never booked VRBO before, this booking exprience and property will spoil you and make you wonder why you'd ever want to do it any other way.

Thank you for sharing this hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay in this condo for a week, and it was absolutely breathtaking. The condo, the town, the people, and the location couldn't be better. There are adventure parks, cenotes, ruins, and shopping within 5-10 minutes of the condo. We really enjoyed the private beach. The beach for this condo was definitely the best in Puerto. The condo was decorated beautifully, and it was everything you'd expect and more. It was very updated and modern. The other guests in our group really enjoyed the plethora of movies and books. It had the feel of a private beach house. The condo opens up to the pool and the ocean, and the breathtaking view will never be forgotten. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for sharing this slice of paradise with us.

My new vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was absolutely stunning, it was decorated very nicely. The views from the condo are breathtaking. The ocean and the beach were the best I have ever been too. We loved all of the restaurants and shops surrounding the marina. Everyone in the community was so friendly. We spent our vacation doing several different things during the day, such as, tulum, xplor, and many cenotes. It was always wonderful to come back to the condo and relax while looking at the ocean. This vacation could not have been any better. We loved staying at your condo and hope to return very soon.
