Quintana Roo Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, Maximum Occupancy: 12 adults and 2 children, Air Conditioning in bedrooms, Swimming Pool (20 x 40), Caribbean View with Entrance into Yal-ku Lagoon. Location: Akumal, Quintana Roo, Yucatan, Mexico. One hour south of Cancun.

Villa Gauguin is an extraordinary 6300 square villa located in Akumal, built overlooking beautiful Yalku lagoon. This villa was designed with floor-to-ceiling glass windows in order to completely take in the natural beauty of the surrounding area.

The villa’s spacious 900 square feet living area creates the illusion of being outdoors by means of its interior garden, 15 feet ceilings and its floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The décor is minimalist yet classy, making the most of the living space and giving it a bright and airy feel. The dining room has mesmerizing views over the lagoon and a large table that can seat up to 12 people. The fully equipped modern kitchen will allow you to prepare fabulous meals for all your party. Alternatively, kick back and have a meal cooked for you by one of the house staff.

Villa Gauguin has five air conditioned bedrooms, all with fabulous views of the ocean or mangroves. Each has a full bathroom en-suite, lots of closet space, and a private balcony. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed with private view to the villa’s interior garden. There are a further 4 bedrooms upstairs, 3 of which have breathtaking views of the lagoon. The first bedroom is the Master bedroom with a king-size bed, walk-in double closet and a large en-suite bathroom. The 3 other bedrooms all have 2 queen-size beds. On the same floor, there is a TV room equipped with a large size TV, DVD, player, home theater and spacious sofas. The exterior area overlooking the ocean is spectacular, with its infinity-edge pool and Jacuzzi, giving directly onto the crystal clear waters of Yalku Lagoon. Villa Gauguin is a truly unique holiday home!

Our group of 8 arrved for our 10 day stay in Villa Gauguin & were delighted the entire stay. Francisco & Gladis were welcoming & attentive. They cooked fabulous meals for us & quietly kept everything clean & orderly. The home is beautifully outfitted throughout. WiFi was flawless, we had everything we needed & more. The location was great, a perfect balance of not too close & not too far away from Akumal.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a fantastic, relaxing week at Villa Gauguin. We were two families, totaling four adults and three young kids under 3.5 years, and everyone was comfortable. Maria from the management company was terrific in getting all our questions answered before we arrived. The caretakers, Francisco and Gladis, are wonderful, and I recommend having them cook for you at least one night (and defintely try their lemon cake).

The pool was terrific for the kids, and even has a section that is "baby pool" depth, which was nice. (Though there is no protective fencing around the pool, so you do have to be on your toes with toddlers.) There is amazing snorkeling in the lagoon the house looks out on.

The house is roughly equidistant between Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. (Hartwood and Mezzanine in Tulum are highly recommended.) We also had a fun day at Xcaret, a nearby ecopark. There is also a great beach cafe called La Buena Vida within walking distance of the villa, which has a fantastic happy hour, and the kids loved playing on the beach, and the beanbags and hammocks there.

The only downside for families with toddlers or young children is that there is a spiral staircase that does not have a rail, but if you have young kids you are used to being extra-vigilant already. It did not affect our trip, but just an FYI.

And amazing as the pictures are on the listing, they really don't do the view justice. Waking up to that view everyday, or lounging in the pool looking out over the water, was one of the best parts of our stay.

Absolutely stunning home, wonderful caretakers and cooks in Francisco and Gladys (ask them to cook the lobster dinner!), great location for snorkeling and relaxing away from the crowds. Akumal Villas was very helpful from start to finish.

Reviewer Comments:

This is an amazing house, but you should know the 5th bedroom has no closet or bathroom although there is a half-bath (toilet) just outside the door. It would be okay for teenagers or young adults, but they will need to use the shower in someones room. It's the only bedroom downstairs so it's not good for young children. We rent the house as a 4BR and all is good. There is no beach but the ocean is "right there" and most beautiful to look at. You get the morning sun, which we love, but by early afternoon the pool and patio are in shade, again, we love this! The on-site care tenders are wonderful and prepare a beautiful dinner!
