My 5 girlfriends spent 4 days at Villa Picon and had a great time. The house is fairly isolated. There are no restaurants in walking distance, but that worked for us. We spent our days outside by the pool, in the hot tub or in the ocean. The beach in front of the house is very nice, clean and no rocks or sea urchins. The kayaks and boogie boards were a plus. We went out to dinner one night at John Gray's Kitchen and the food was delicious! Two nights we hired Ana to make dinner for us (her chicken enchiladas are so good). Ana and Nicolas were lovely! We wish we could speak Spanish as their English is limited, but we made do and had no issues communicating. The beds were comfy and the A/C works well! The house and ground as you enter the neighborhood are a little run down, but everything was very clean and comfortable. We all agreed we would definitely return.
Great beach villa and location. The caretakers, Nico and Ana were very nice and always available to answer our questions and help with any issues that arose. Kim at Luxury Retreats was always very prompt and professional in answering all my question I had before we left for the vacation. My son and his wife joined us for the week and we all thoroughly enjoyed the villa and the amazing beach and ocean view. This is probably the best vacation we've had in some time. Can't wait to go back!
Excellent property! Huge pool, phenomenal beach! We had Ana cook for us two nights. Delicious food and enough for another meal the next day. Ana and Nico are wonderfully sweet people. House was very well stocked with cooking utensils, etc...we will definitely rent this property again. The only recommendation is to put A/C downstairs too. It was not intolerable, but at night when we wanted to watch a movie in the family area it was a little uncomfortable. Overall, nine out of 10 stars!
The access to the beach is perfect. And the swimming pool right out front is just great. The only drawback is not having air conditioning in the downstairs. It made it very uncomfortable to try to cook. So I cooked at Casa Tortuga. The house was very nice, clean, wonderful location, and the people caring for the house, Nicolas and Ana, were very nice.
Thanks Jane! Wonderful job of staying in contact/planning. We had some hiccups (to be expected) but my entire group had a great time! Piccon was a great location, however the property could use some updating. Nico & Anna are so accommodating...I would let travelers know that Puerto Morales is a better quick grocery destination than Playa Carmen. Your recommendation to John Grey's kitchen was excellent! The beach was so nice although the locals need to clean it up...too much plastic/trash. On behalf of our entire family thank you for helping us have a very memorable trip.
We had a great family get-together over Thanksgiving at Villa Picon. The house was just right for our family group, and very comfortable. The private beach location is ideal, and we had the beach almost entirely to ourselves. We enjoyed meals outside on the large covered patio overlooking the pool and beach. The caretakers were very hospitable and respectful of their guests' privacy.
