About Rob and Sue

My husband and I are professionals - I work as a senior administrator in local government, and my husband owns his own Music business. After years of travel, we found something special in Puerto, and decided to make it our Future retirement home! Friendly faces, good friends, and great times is why we keep coming back. We take great pride in our Condo, and it shows. We love sharing it with others looking to rent a week in Paradise, and feel the way we do.

Rob and Sue purchased this condo in 2010

Why Rob and Sue chose Quintana Roo

After viewing almost 50 properties in the Mayan, we chose to purchase in Puerto as we saw it as the best blend of cultural opportunities, access to day trips and cultural experiences, access to party life when we choose it, but not being totally immersed in it, very private, clean, safe and easy access to every amenity we wanted. ATMs readily available and money exchange outlets on site.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefit of staying in our Studio in Puerto is the view off of your own private terrace out the back door overlooking the marina and its activity - out your front door is the Caribbean Ocean 150 feet away - secluded , tranquil, very private areas if you choose them and access to shops, eateries and fun abounds, 24/7 security! The sounds of the local birds turn your morning coffee into a magical experience.

After coffee, try a tranquil beach walk with your loved one, or all by yourself on the secluded sands of Puerto Aventuras, sometimes the only footprints you'll see are your own!!!

Our family of four had a wonderful vacation at Rob and Sue's property. Rob was very responsive and all his descriptions proved accurate. The condo was clean and comfortable, we especially loved the gorgeous pool on the beach less than a 100 yards from our front door, and the very pleasant restaurant area just another 100 yards away. Just as we had hoped, Puerto Aventuras is an extremely convenient base for exploring sights to the South (we liked Tulum, Aktun Chen, the cenotes and beaches) and to the North (Playa del Carmen, Cozumel). Rob had warned us and we knew going in that the sleeping would be tight for our family, and in fact the futon couch was not big enough for both our 15- and 11-year old kids, so our 11-year-old slept in the king bed with us. But for the price we paid, with the great location and the amenities in and around Chac Hal Al, we felt it was a great deal.

My Response

We are pleased that we have yet another happy bunch of guests! Yes, we DID warn you it may be tight, but glad it all worked out fine, and you still got to see this amazing place. You are all welcome to return anytime, and get "cozy" again! Thanks again, Rob and Sue

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Rob and Sue's studio apartment for 14 days in late January. The apartment was simple but perfectly adequate for all our needs and situated in a wonderful location. Quite, with a nice amount of privacy and just steps from the marina and the restaurants, the pools and the beach ( with the private lounge chairs, surprisingly good snorkelling and great sunsets). We rented a car for a week or so and geographically Puerto Aventuras proved to be a good spot for exploring the Penisula. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this safe, gated community and would highly recommend this property to any couple looking for some serious, independent relaxation in probably the best located resort property in Puerto Aventuras.

Beautiful and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 12 days in PA at the condo of Rob and Sue's in the Chac Hal Al resort. Being on the ground allowed us to sit out on the huge wrap around patio surrounded by a park like setting. We could watch boats go by and were only a few steps to two pools and the mile long beach. As well, although we cooked and BBQ'd on the grill, we were only minutes to great restaurants. We love to walk so the large grocery store was only a 20 minute walk, Other minimarts within a couple hundred yards supplied our ice, beverages and snacks. The grounds were always well kept and very safe. The management company on site had great people available for any info we required and Rob and Sue were very prompt on any emails, just making sure all was well. We will definitely be coming back as we found the condo and complex in great condition and total PA area a beautiful place to unwind with out having to drive a car for every little errand.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in Puerto Aventuras. If you are unfamilar, it's like a little gated town with about half dozen restaurants, convenience store, touristy shops, hotels, marina, and steps from the condo is a large pool with dolphins that people swim with. There are other pools with sea lions and manatees too. Best of all, there is a lovely private beach just steps from the condo. The water is calm and there are usually free chaises (during Christmas period). Probably the only annoying thing for us was that the pathways in the area are not stroller/wheelchair friendly. Every few feet there is a line of decorative shells that are hard to get the wheels over.

The condo is not fancy, but it has everything you need for a comfortable stay except maybe a dishwasher or garbage disposal (not sure how common that is in Mexico). The location within PA is fantastic too, close to everything. The hosts were excellent with communication and made sure we were well cared for. Highly recommended.

Thanks again Welcome back anytime! Rob and Sue

something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

This unit was the perfect size for my husband, myself and our teenage son. We didn't spend a lot of time in the condo but it was spacious and well kept. It is private and very quiet with just a short walk to entertainment and better yet, the beach!

The pools and grounds are well taken care of.

This was our first experience with a vacation rental in Mexico and we were very impressed. Nels , was available pretty much whenever we needed anything and very helpful.

We are looking forward to another stay at Rob and Sue's Chac Hal Al paradise!

Thank you Rob and Sue for sharing your home away from home with us.

Great studio condo in great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Rob & Sue's condo in Puerto Aventuras and had a thoroughly relaxing stay. I had never been to Mexico before and wasn't sure what to expect, but what a treat! The condo was just as advertised and a great value. We dealt with Rob via email and he was very informative and prompt in answering all our questions. Rob offered to arrange airport transfers, but we opted to rent a car so we could visit the surrounding areas. Parking was right in front of the condo. We had no issues driving in Mexico, but we stayed on the main roads and mostly traveled during daylight. The location was perfect to visit Tulum, Excaret, Playa del Carmen .... the list goes on! There was a large, clean supermarket right across the street from the community and you could get everything there, including beer and wine. The condo itself was VERY quiet and relaxing. The deck faced a lovely yard and the marina. We had some cute visitors, iguanas and agouti, in the yard and they were entertaining to watch! We needed peace and quiet and that's what we got! The pool and the ocean were only 120 steps from the front door (good luck getting that at a resort!). The beach is small and not for long walks, but you can walk/jog around the marina if you want to stretch your legs. It was fun to take a morning stroll and see the dolphins playing at the Dolphinarium. What was appealing to us was that the barrier reef was right there! We brought our snorkel gear and went out most days. The fish were amazing! So many colours and sizes .... we highly recommend the snorkeling. The condo was well equipped and we had dinner in two nights, but there was an abundance of restaurants just a stroll away. Many choices and reasonable prices. You could even get Starbucks coffee! The wifi was good and worked on the deck too. The king bed had great linens and there were plenty of towels. The community itself is pretty laid back and friendly. We met some of the neighbours from the "Sunset Club". If you were available and inclined, there were a small group of people (renters and owners) who met each night with a cocktail to watch the sunset, then they went on their way. They were a great source of info and just really welcoming and friendly! It was a great holiday, at a great condo and community and we wouldn't hesitate to go back! Thank you Rob & Sue!

Owner's Response: Thanks Teri and Harold, that was a very nice review, and we are so happy you totally enjoyed yourselves. Thanks for bringing down the zero gravity chair too!! That was very nice of you!! It's always hard to describe how special this area is over the phone, or through other's reviews and emails. You really have to see it, live it, to believe it! We are also happy you got to experience the serenity of our patio and have the little creatures visit you. The small gopher looking guys LOVE tortilla chips by the way....I've had them eat right from my hand. You're right about the snorkeling, great sights just outside our door in the bay...and the SUNSETS with the "club"....can't tell you how I miss seeing those....everyday! We are hoping we can go within the next few weeks for one last visit until next winter arrives...we'll see. In closing, you are both more than welcome to come back the rate we are going though, BOOK EARLY!! So far all of Feb is gone for next year . Thanks again! Be well, and stay in touch!

Great location, very comfortable and peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week long stay in PA at this peaceful condo. We loved how close (100 steps) we were to the great pool and beach. Nice palapas and comfortable beach chairs. The ocean there is nice because the bay shelters out the bigger surf making for nice snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking. We saw some nice fish and a large stingray! The location was also good for touring, as we visited Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Akumal.

We enjoyed the many restaurants we could walk to and the grocery store and village c-store were convenient. The kitchen was well supplied, grill work perfectly. King bed was very comfortable, wi-fi fast. This is definately a peaceful, quiet vacation spot and a good value.
