About Kenneth Dugas

My wife and I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. We are business owners with Paramedic and Nursing backgrounds. We love to travel and have always had a dream of owning a place in the Caribbean. In 2014, our dream came true and we feel so blessed to have this place and to be able to share it with othersl

Kenneth Dugas purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kenneth Dugas chose Puerto Aventuras

We really were looking for a 3 bedroom unit when we came across Villas del Mar D-205. We actually gave up a bedroom and paid more for this condo because we could not pass up buying at this location. The beach and the Caribbean is what we want when we travel. Villas del Mar, in our opinion, had the best beach location in all of Puerto Aventuras! Speaking of Puerto Aventuras, what a perfect place to be in the Riviera Maya! It is the perfect balance between resort and community and has everything you need right there. The gated community is very safe and the additional gate and security in Villas del Mar is so comforting. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. People from all over the world travel to Cancun. However, once in Cancun they book excursions such as nature parks, diving, fishing, seeing the ruins etc. All of these activities are close to Puerto Aventuras! This is the place to be.

What makes this condo unique

There are only so many homes with views like this in the world! The pools, beach, palm trees and Caribbean are beautiful. Did I mention location? Couldn't be better!

Absolutely perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the condo itself was perfect...perfectly appointed and absolutely spotless. The view from the balcony encompasses the pools, the grounds and the ocean. The ocean view and ocean breezes are stunning! The pools, the beach and the grounds are perfectly maintained. The ground staff was very nice and accommodating and even brought us fresh coconuts right from the trees. The Marina and restaurant are a short walk away with many very good restaurants. We highly recommend this property and hope to return next year. Thank you, Ken, for a wonderful, relaxing vacation!!

Owner's Response: Suzie, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and found everything to meet your expectations. We try hard to keep our home well maintained and up to date. There is a lot of bad news spreading around about Mexico but, like you, I feel very safe there. Puerto Aventuras is a gated, private community and is known for its safety. We hope you come back soon!

Breathtaking Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Ken's place and we absolutely love it. The condo is beautiful and is perfectly situated in a safe area, close to the immaculate beach and town. The view and grounds are absolutely breathtaking! Ken and Denise are wonderful to work with, very professional, organized and so friendly. We will not hesitate vacationing here again!

Great swimming and snorkeling and a beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The Condo was comfortable and well appointed and with beautiful views. We swam in the pool and snorkeled right off the beach multiple times every day (and also enjoyed some of the nearby cenotes). I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Lisa, Thank you for taking the time to submit this nice review! I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. We love our pools and beach. I must give credit to our maintenance crew. They do a tremendous job keeping the pools spotless and our private beach in such great shape. My wife and I were there a few weeks ago and we also enjoyed the snorkeling right off the beach. You were great guests and we hope you will stay with us again soon!

Very nice stay in Villa Del Mar!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from an 8-day vacation in Villa Del Mar. The condo is well appointed, the grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained, the pool and beach are lovely and the condo is located within a few minutes walk to the Town Square which has several good restaurants and shops. Beach chairs and loungers around the pool and on the beach were always plentiful, and the snorkeling, especially out past the breaker wall and towards the Omni hotel to the north, was decent (although you'll find more a larger abundance and variety of sea life other places in Mexico). The condo itself had a great view of the pool (we spent many early evenings just sitting on the balcony enjoying the ocean breezes), was well laid out, with a convenient third bathroom and washer/dryer and it was great having coolers and towels provided to take to the beach. We did encounter several minor things that, well not earth shattering, did impact our impression of the unit:

1) The guest bathroom shower did not drain well - it filled up within seconds of turning the water on and you ended up showering in ankle deep soapy water. This didn't happen in the master bedroom shower, so we're wondering if it's something that can be fixed.

2) There was no hair dryer in the guest bathroom. For the $20 it would cost, it would be a nice convenience for your renters so that a single hair dryer doesn't have to be passed between the two bathrooms.

3) We used the kitchen several times, mostly for breakfast. We found several dirty utensils in the drawers by the refrigerator when looking for a whisk, including two pairs of scissors that were kind of disgusting. Also, having a roll or two of paper towel would have been nice (most VRBO properties we've stayed at provide at least one roll initially).

4) There were no paved walkways all the way to the pool or the beach. While not a big deal for most, it does make it more challenging for people using canes, crutches or walkers. One of our party had just had knee replacement surgery and the uneven grassy expanse that you have to cross to get to the pool was challenging.

4) The directions and informational sheets that Ken sent us in advance of our stay need updating. Information regarding the WiFi access was inaccurate, and the blue passes that were referenced in the info (needed for pool and beach access) apparently don't exist because we didn't get them.

Other than that, it was a lovely place to stay and we'd rent again. Thanks Ken!!

Owner's Response: Mary, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. You are the first 4 star review we have ever received. We have always had 5 star reviews. I want to thank you for the valuable information you shared and your input! I have already instructed my property manager to purchase another hair dryer for the second bedroom. That was a very good suggestion. I will also have maintenance fix the slow drain problem in the second bathroom shower. Thank you for letting me know about this. A roll of paper towels should have been provided for you in the kitchen and all utensils should be clean. Will address this with the cleaning service. This condo, to us, is not a "rental property" It is our dream vacation home so we try to make sure everything is perfect in the unit. Your feedback will allow me to make sure it stays in top condition. and will provide an excellent experience for all our renters. The router needed to be reset and so I will update the information sheet that I send out to my guests. We will work hard to get that 5 star review from you next time! I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We think it is a very special place. I thank you for sharing your concerns with me and am glad you said you would rent with us again. Hope to have you back again soon! Thank you for choosing to stay at our lovely home.

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing apt! The private beach is perfect for children it has a man made lagoon perfect for small kids the pools are family oriented. You can watch the kids from apt balcony. You are walking distance from the restaurants which is so much cheaper then hotel food. But, when you are laying out on the beach (it has lounge chairs included by the way) you can hail down waiters from the Omni which is right next door. To be honest the apt has a better beach then the Omni. If you want to cook your own food the supermarket is right outside the complex! We loved it!!!! Great with kids so relaxing!!!!

Car: not necessary

This luxurious unit is located in one of the best locations in Villa del Mar which has the finest beach in Puerto Aventuras. This 1,600 square foot, 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom beachfront condominium provides a tranquil and breathtaking location for you to either relax by the beach or explore the many adventures of the inviting Riviera Maya. Just a few steps to the child friendly, zero-entry pool and brilliant white sandy beach, this condo offers spectacular views and comfortable surroundings in the most desirable location of Puerto Aventuras.

Puerto Aventuras is an exclusive upscale gated beach resort community, 15 minutes south of Playa de Carmen and Cozumel. Tulum is 25 minutes away, and the airport in Cancun is just 60 minutes away.

This charming resort is safe, family-friendly and offers every amenity you can imagine. In less than five minutes you can be dining at one of the twelve delightful restaurants, shopping for souvenirs, swimming with the dolphins, snorkeling in the pristine ocean or heading off to go deep-sea fishing.

Puerto Aventuras features dazzling multi-colored water, coconut palms and a picturesque marina. There is also shady palapas, a private beach for Villas del Mar guests and a short swim to an offshore reef for snorkeling. The water is very calm since it is a reef-protected bay.

This quaint resort offers grocery stores, pharmacy, shopping, museum and Dolphin Discovery. Golf, tennis, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, sailing and a relaxing spa are all within 5 minutes walking distance.

For those who want a little more adventure, the Mayan ruins of Tulum, horseback riding, ATV Jungle Ride and other area attractions are only minutes away. This is a truly idyllic location that offers something for everyone!
