Enjoying wonderful views of a gorgeous lagoon named Yalku, Villa Gauguin boasts six thousand three hundred square feet of space. The ceiling to floor windows of this lovely, luminous vacation villa ensures that it makes the very most of the exquisite views to be had in all directions. You get the feeling you are outside, owing to the spaciousness of the nine hundred-square- foot living area, the interior garden, the fifteen-foot ceilings and the ceiling to floor windows. The decoration is tasteful and minimalist, enhancing the living area and lending a sensation of light and air and space.

The dining room enjoys amazing vistas of the lagoon and has a sizeable table that can accommodate as many as twelve guests. The kitchen is modern and totally equipped for you to cook up tasty dishes for your whole group.  On the other hand, you may want to take a break from cooking and have one of our house staff prepare a meal for you. All of the five bedrooms in this delightful vacation rental property have air-conditioning and gorgeous views of the sea or of the mangroves.  Each bedroom also has its own bathroom, plenty of space in the closets, and its own balcony. In the bedroom downstairs there is a queen size bed and a view of the interior garden.  Upstairs there are four bedrooms, and three of them enjoy fabulous views of the lagoon.

The main bedroom has a king size bed, large closet and spacious bathroom.  Each of the other three bedrooms has two queen size beds. Also upstairs is a TV room which features a large television, home theater, a DVD player and large comfortable sofas. Outside you’ll find a pool area with marvelous views across the lagoon. The Jacuzzi and infinity pool seem to run right into the crystalline waters of the lagoon, giving a sensation of never-ending water of different shades of blue and green. Villa Gauguin is an outstanding holiday home just waiting to give you an unforgettable vacation in paradise!

    So Much More Beautiful Than The Pics Illustrate...
    (5 of 5)
    Posted on 28 May 2018
    Villa Gauguin is simply beautiful. The pictures do not offer the property "proper" justice. From the moment you open the front door, the indoors not only opens to the beauty of the home, but a picturesque blue vista that is simply breath taking. You just stand there and take it in, let it wash over you, right then and there you know you have made the right choice. There is seemingly a view from everywhere. With the exception of the kitchen area and immediate dining area (this is not knock, we had 11 people during this visit, being all in kitchen at once is too much but comfy), the house feels resort like, there is space for everyone to feel as if you were alone in the beauty and tranquility that is Villa Gauguin. Three of the five bedrooms offer an ocean view, the other two bedrooms offer a view of the idyllic setting that is Villa Gauguin. The outside patio and pool area is expansive, even for the 11 in our party. Ample seating, morning sunrises, infinity pool and lounge seating make it thee "go to" area of the house. There is a place for everyone and if you think there isn't, take a walk from the pool area directly below on to the rocks, grab a seat and let the misty breeze of the Caribbean wash over you. This is luxury, simplicity and elegance at it's best. You're away from Akumal by ten minutes and for us that was a good thing, think serenity. You can snorkel right off the property into the Yalku Lagoon, calmer waters, or into the Caribbean. Guest have stated that the best snorkeling was towards the Caribbean. Word to the wise, wait for calmer waters if you choose snorkel towards the Caribbean as the waves run directly towards the property. The nice thing is, is once the sun sets on front side of the house your afternoons and evenings will be nothing but trade winds and shade. To say we were impressed is an understatement, Villa Gauguin is impressive, fond memories will be made here. The property is managed by Francisco and his wife Gladys. Francisco is knowledgeable in all things Villa Gauguin AND on top of that a great cook. Francisco's cooking is on par with any restaurant in Akumal, so if you need a night in, set the table and let Francisco provide the meal. Your decision will not be a disappointment. We loved the Green Chicken Enchiladas and the Grilled Fresh Fish was heavenly, simply add your drink of choice for the perfect evening "at home". We were married at Villa Gauguin and for our time and expenditure, I cannot think of a better setting, a better place and or better people, Francisco and Gladys, to have been a part of it. We are already thinking anniversary parties here, it would be our Hangover II if you will. Thank you Francisco, Gladys and Villa Gauguin for the memories.

    Cried when I left.

    This was, by a long shot, our favorite beach house vacation. The house itself is amazing. The caretakers, Francisco and Gladis, lived up to the raves in other reviews -- both for their friendly yet unobtrusive manner, and their skills in the kitchen when making meals for us. They were quick to make beds and clean in the mornings when we were out and about; more efficient than many luxury hotel staff in fact. & every meal they made for us was delicious. The pool, with its infinity edge view of the lagoon and caribbean beyond, was fabulous. The snorkeling right out back (a brief walk to the left for access steps to enter the water) was the best snorkeling of the trip, and a way better value than paying and entering at Yal Ku entrance (a short walk from the house). The iguanas that walked up to us near the pool every day were adorable in a strange way, and they add to the natural charm of the location. There are 3 restaurants within walking distance, one (Que Onda) literally right across the street. I would recommend a golf cart rental if you choose not to rent a car, as the main town of akumal is 1.5 miles south, which is of course walkable, but in the blazing hot sun and humidity can quickly seem onerous. They are electric, so don't make my mistake in assuming the battery pack can charge them; they do need to be plugged into an outdoor AC outlet every other night to charge (there is one on the right side of the driveway). As with anything there are small areas that might be improved upon (some more shade near the pool area would be nice, be it a large umbrella or a canopy of some kind; there were often ants and other bugs in places you would rather they not be; and the master shower hot water was lukewarm at best) BUT BUT BUT those are small issues that pale in comparison to the magnificent location, staff, architecture and pool design of this gem of a house. We have not returned to any prior beach houses (OBX) but Gauguin might be the exception one day. We were genuinely sad to leave, and I had a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes as I sat in the pool for the last time.
