Villa Gummerson

Tankah Bay, Tankah Bay, Mexico


  • A Homey Vacation Villa on Unspoilt Tankah Bay

    Riviera Maya in the Caribbean is a dream destination for many travelers because of its exotic, pristine beaches, impeccable service and world-renown snorkeling spots. However, one of the most picturesque places of the Caribbean – Tankah Bay, hidden between Akumal and Tulum, is still relatively undiscovered by tourists.

    This is exactly where Villa Gummerson is located. Standing directly across from the Caribbean’s largest reef and Manatee Cenote, this 4-bedroom beachfront house is a perfect getaway for those, who appreciate the comfort of their own private villa and the mesmerizing beauty of the Caribbean’s nature and marine life.

    Despite its spaciousness and impressive open entryway with two skylight domes, Villa Gummerson, still has a very homey, laid-back feel.

    Delightfully decorated and designed vacation villa

    When you first see the opened-floor living and dining areas, it’s easy to picture yourself relaxing with a good book on the couch or chatting with your friends and family members over a delicious Mexican meal.

    It’s also easy to make everyone happy with their accommodation at Villa Gummerson, as 3 out of the 4 bedrooms are master suites. Each features a king-size bed, a beautiful en-suite bathroom and a private balcony or patio facing the golden Caribbean coastline. The fourth bedroom is perfect for teenagers or friends as it comes with 2 double beds, an en-suite bathroom and private access to the terrace.

    It is also worth mentioning that Villa Gummerson has a large, fully-equipped kitchen containing everything you may need to prepare a dinner for 8-10 people. And on the days when no one feels like cooking, you can invite a private chef to cook a meal for you or check out the two charming restaurants in Tankah Tres for local specialties.

    Take your pick – pool, cenote or ocean for your daily fun

    Of course, as in any deluxe vacation house, Villa Gummerson comes with a pool and several outdoor areas, designed for relaxation, sun tanning or socializing.

    For example, in the afternoon the oceanfront patio on the lower ground will become your favorite place to savor a true Mexican siesta in the hammock while sipping a cool margarita with Tankah Bay as your backdrop. While at night or in the early morning, the rooftop deck will definitely impress you with its 360 degrees view of the Mexican Riviera jungle and the Caribbean.

    Other activities and destinations which are within reach of Villa Gummerson are the Tulum Ruins, Sian Ka’an, Xcaret, and Coba. At night, Playa del Carmen, located just 50 minutes away is THE place to visit if you are looking for authentic Caribbean beat and hip nightlife.

    Truly, whether you are travelling with your family or organizing a vacation for your friends, Villa Gummerson is the ideal combination of laid-back lifestyle, natural beauty and 5-star hotel comfort. Sounds great?
