Overview

Puerto Aventuras Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Villa with Convertible sofa bed 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4; )

Come to Mexico and enjoy the heavenly SUN, gorgeous WHITE SANDS, and Fabulous AQUA SEAS. It's postcard prime! And all in the lovely gated community of Puerto Aventuras... SO much to see and do!

This is your ultimate vacation paradise... ! EVERYTHING is right here... Picture endless white sands, turquoise ocean waves lapping at your toes, gentle ocean breezes and lots of sunshine!... Come vacation in PARADISE in the heart of the fabulous MAYAN RIVIERA! We have a beautiful villa complete with a private patio that boasts its own hot tub, full kitchen, FREE daily maid service, swimming pool, work-out/steam room, and much more in the picturesque gated village of Puerto Aventuras...Port of Adventure. We are overlooking the Grand Marina and across from the Tom Lehman designed scenic golf course.

This UNIQUE COMMUNITY just south of Playa del Carmen has so much to offer...like no place else you've ever stayed! And it's ALL about LOCATION and relaxation! 5 min. from our door there are beautiful white sandy beaches (complete with swim-up jacuzzi beach bar, palapas, and full beach service). A natural reef protects the shoreline for safe swimming. Just steps away from our villa, be entertained by the cavorting DOLPHINS or SEA LIONS and watch the feeding of the endangered MANATEES and other unusual animals. (Are you interested in swimming with the dolphins? Here's your chance.) You may also enjoy cocktails/dining at one of the many excellent bistros or restaurants, or peruse the quaint village shops... snorkel right off the beach... go deep-sea fishing... walking, or read a book poolside. There are several grocery stores right here. You won't even need a car... unless you want one! EVERYTHING is within a 5-10 minute walk. We also enjoy daily walks around the town, nature sites (complete with an actual Mayan Ruin and several natural cenotes), and seeing the boats in the harbors. You can even buy fresh fish for dinner from the many fishing charters nearby... and cook it on the grill or in the oven. There is so much to do right here! Plus the town of Playa del Carmen is just a taxi ride away if you want to experience the noisier more boistrous atmosphere for an evening.

The 1 bedroom has a King-sized bed and entertainment center. The living room has a Queen-sized sofa bed. This villa is beautifully furnished... granite and marble tile are used throughout. Fully equipped kitchen. Daily maid service (except Sundays). The living room sliding glass doors 'disappear' into the walls to open up the large covered patio making this a spectacular setting. Did I mention that you have your own private jacuzzi right on the patio???

We invite you to come and enjoy the friendly Mexican hospitality and a truly restful, relaxing and luxurious vacation in Paradise. Please contact us for more information... We would be glad to help you plan the perfect Mexican vacation adventure. We love to share what we love about the Mayan Riviera!

We offer personalized service... YOUR VACATION IS IMPORTANT TO US!!!

About Jane Barclay

My husband and I have traveled extensively all over the Caribbean always looking for some place to call home... our own 'particular harbour'... and several years ago we found it. Right here in Puerto Aventuras. We dreamed we'd be able to wake up here; walk around the marina; watch people swimming with the dolphins, manatees, and sea lions while sipping on an ice cold Diet Coke or Cerveza, por favor! Or maybe while licking an ice cold ice cream cone (while watching a baby dolphin being born!) OK... I never dreamed of that, but I loved it when it happened! So we bought a beautiful villa and have been happy ever since! Let us tell you about the places to see and the marvelous things to do on your vacation. One thing you can be sure of.... is that I take your vacation very seriously. I know how important it is to be able to ask all your questions and get the help you need, when you need it. I love to tell you some of our favorite places to see and things to do, and I will research anything you need. We also have staff on-site to help while you're there. COME... and Check it out. YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE! All of my renters have.

Jane Barclay purchased this villa in 2007

Why Jane Barclay chose Quintana Roo

WE FELL IN LOVE WITH PUERTO AVENTURAS!!! This stretch of the Mayan Riviera has it ALL... beautiful beaches, laid back community with gated entrance, largest marina between Cancun and Belize, dolphins, manatees, sea lions, great snorkeling right off the beach that's protected by the 400 mile Meso-American Reef (the second largest in the world)... and much more. It's reachable by reasonable fairly short flights from most American/Canadian cities. Mexican people are very friendly and welcoming. Food/beverages are cheap and fresh fruits and vegetables are in abundance. It's a quiet little community, but it has many interesting shops and restaurants within a 5 minute walk from our door. We are right on the Grand Marina.

What makes this villa unique

You can snorkel right off the beach. Read by the pool. Swim with the dolphins. Use the jacuzzi on our patio. Golf and Tennis nearby. Daily maid service. Many shops and restaurants right around the marina... 5 min. walk. Beautiful beach and full priviledges at the Omni Beach Club are optional. If you want you can explore the ruins right on the property... or check out our local cenote or caleta (bay). Many places to walk. We love to explore and it's all right here. Also close to Playa del Carmen, Akumal, Tulum. Will be glad to give you lots of info!

Beautiful condo, Great Service, Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 8 nights in Puerto Aventuras. We rented through Jane. Her 1 bedroom wasn't available but she found us a 2 bedroom at very good rate. Thanks Jane! The condo was really nice and had every convenience. It was a ground floor unit and we liked having the landscaped back yard just a few steps to the pool. We bought the Omni beach membership for $125 that gave us full privileges plus a 25% discount on food and drinks during our stay. We have been to the Omni many times before and the beach had suffered from erosion the last couple years, but to our surprise they have completely restored it! There are many good restaurants in the village near Porto Bello and the Omni easy walking distance - you don't need a car. We usually visit Playa Del Carmen by walking up to the entrance of PTO and flagging down a "collectivo" - they run up and down the main highway every few minutes and only cost 20 pesos each way.

We definitely plan on renting a condo from Jane at Portobello Grand Marina again!

Great property, relaxing time, well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Great location between Tulum and Playa Carmen. Lots of dining options in the area. Reasonable beach very close by. Good safe gated community. Great place to visit with kids. Pool is right outside the condo. The condo is well maintained. Has all the modern amenities you would expect. Good value for the money. Owner is very helpful, answers questions promptly and will explain area very well. Overall, a good vacation spot. Have rented several vrbo, homeaway, airbnb places before and this is one of our favorites.

We will return

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay, in all respects. Jane is a very helpful owner, who replies promptly to any question...and provides helpful suggestions. The unit is very neat & clean & attractively decorated. The only thing we missed was a teakettle. The staff at Porto Bello is excellent, and the maid and laundry service are outstanding. Restaurants are just a 5-minute walk away. Beach, towels & facilities are available from the Omni hotel (5 minute walk) for $125...with a 25% discount thereafter for purchases there (cheaper if you pay in pesos). We highly recommend the Omni's restaurant (ceviche is the best I have had anywhere). Omni prices are somewhat higher that at other Puerto Aventuras restaurants, but the quality & 25% discount compensates. Our 2nd choice for restaurants is Masimo's. The wedge salad at Cafe Ole is outstanding, though we would order something other than enchiladas & hamburguesas on our next visit (last year their Thanksgiving dinner was outstanding). We did not make it to Latitude 20 this year, but that is another good dining option. We did this stay without a car. The walk to the Chedraui for groceries is about 17 minutes each way. I suggest you bring a sturdy backpack if you plan to do this, though you can get a taxi back for about 50 pesos. Shuttle transport to/from the airport typically runs about $70. We used a taxi for returning for 730 pesos + tip. For other travel that is much cheaper, adventuresome folks can walk to the gate (7 minutes) and catch a colectivo. On return, you might enjoy a stop at Taco Paco, located between the Pemex and Subway. Not fancy and not scenic, but the fish and coconut shrimp tacos are excellent (they close at 6pm). With all that Porto Bello and Jane's have to villa offer, we can't help but return.

Owner's Response: Thank you SO MUCH for your generous review. I try really hard to provide the kind of service I would hope to get when renting myself. AND I LOVE to share our special corner of the world in Mexico. Thank YOU for appreciating it and for writing this review! I never remember to ask my renters to do so. But it sure is nice when someone writes. And I'll work on that tea kettle! :) Thank you for renting from me... and for writing... not to mention the helpful tips! I look forward to seeing you back at Porto Bello Grand Marina next year!! :) Have a great day!!! Jane :)

Best location and Best Price

  • 5 of 5

My husband ,our son and I went to stay at Puerta Aventures. We did some research and found Jane's Condo. What a Find. Its in Porto Bello Grande Marina. Love this location. You can take a short walk over and watch manatee's and dolphins swimming around while you enjoy sipping on your margarita while waiting for your fresh fish tacos. The staff at the Porto Bello Grande Marina speak english and are very accomadating. Karla ,who works in the office is wonderful and if you want any help with booking a tour she will be more than happy to help.

This is our 4 th year back to Puerto Aventures and we will only stay in Jane's condo.We only need a one bedroom but I believe she has 2 bedroom as well. We will be back again Next Year For Sure :-) thanks again Jane.

What an experience! Absolutely beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much for all your help Jane! The condo was beautiful and we love, loved the location. Right on the marina to watch the sun come up every morning. Nice having the fully equipped kitchen to make our own meals when we wanted and walk "uptown" in 5 minutes for awesome food at several of the local restaurants. Blending our own cocktails was a big $$ saver also! We will definitely be returning as this one of my absolute favorite places I have visited in Mexico. Felt very safe inside this gated little community and can't wait to come back!
