The villa basically had a private beach. The water was crystal clear and warm as a bath. The house itself was in perfect condition. The husband and wife who served the house were incredible. WiFi and satellite TV worked well. Really hard to beat and we intend to come back. Villa itself is ~30 minutes from Cancun and 1hour from Tulum.

Unforgettable stay

  • 5 of 5

Few times have the houses surpassed pictures. The highlight was really the location. Villa Picon is located in a private residence area with it's own private, stunning beach. Unexpected, but incredibly welcome were the baby sea turtles. We'd been to Cancun many times and this is the first time we've woken up to baby sea turtles. They are hatched outside the house and we saw them scurry to the water every morning - truly unforgettable. The house was beautiful and the setting incredible, we would gladly stay again.

Trip of a lifetime! We thoroughly enjoyed the Villa. Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a trip of a lifetime with friends. The house was lovely and the caretakers wonderful. All our wished came true. We saw giant Momma leatherbacks come up onto the beach to lay their eggs, then also witnessed several teeny baby leatherbacks make the trek to the sea. We swam with Whale Sharks an amazing experience and saw a variety of wonderful wild life all around us, including an Osprey chick, pelicans and gulls, a variety of lizards and fish. The food was excellent. We saw Cenotes, and visited all the towns, but best of all was our own private slice of paradise. We'll be going back!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from our best vacation ever at Villa Picon. The house is so beautiful. We spent the entire week just relaxing with our family. Anna and Nico are the best. They snuck in and out all day long cleaning up and taking care of the property every day. Anna cooked two meals for us in our kitchen which were amazing. What we didn't expect is the level of service from them. Every time we left a few dishes out, she snuck in and cleaned them. For dinner, she not only prepared the food, but also set the table outside, cleaned up the kitchen while we were eating, and cleared the table as soon as we were done. We only left one time to explore Playa del Carmen and get some more groceries. The bedrooms are the only air conditioned rooms, so if we got too hot we all piled in the master bed and watched some tv with the AC on. This is the first time I've ever gone on vacation and didn't want to come back home. We are already planning to return next year!

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

All aspects of working with Luxury Retreats was spot on. The property met or exceeded all expectations and the arrangements including, ground transportation, rental car and prestocking the Villa, all went off without a hitch. From the first contact to the final itinerary, the people at Luxury Retreats were professional and were attuned to every detail.

Overall awesome experience!!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Picon was awesome! Right on the beach with hardly anyone around us. We did have neighbors in the next adjoining house, but they were nice and pleasant to have there. Nico and Ana were excellent and were so nice and accommodating to any needs that we had. We really enjoyed just hanging out around the pool and beach and the house and playing games and cards together. The best part was not having the hustle and bustle of a city or large resort experience. I would definitely recommend this website and the Villa Picon to others, and in fact, I have already done so!
