We enjoyed our stay. The house is magnificant and has all the amenities. Very comfortable. It makes you want to stay there. Lesley was very accommodating and helpful. Always available. You might need your Spanish translation book. Were there with 3 other couples and we had a wonderful time with plenty of space to do our own thing. Didn’t do much siteseeing, but went to the Tulum ruins and beaches and Akumal, otherwise relaxed by the pool and walked the beach.
My family loved the house, the food and the location. Leslie and Fernando (the caretakers) were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend to others.
Spent a week at Villa Arghy and this was the vacation of a lifetime! Lesly made wonderful local dishes for us such as Pollo Pibil and Pollo con Mole…and I will never forget the flan, just heavenly! The villa is kept immaculate by Lesly and her husband Alfredo and they were wonderful to get to know (I even picked up some spanish). The Villa is BEAUTIFUL and the views are spectacular. The pictures don’t do it justice. We tried to pack as much into a week as possible but it seemed like our week in paradise went by so quick! The cenotes are just around the corner and Tulum is a nice short drive. Everything abut this place is wonderful! The people, the culture, the hospitality and the Villa!! Thank you to the owners of Villa Arghy for sharing your home with us. I hope to return again!
I had a wonderful week at Villa Arghy. The house is beautiful and so comfortable. Pictures do not do this place justice. Hang out by the pool or head into Tulum, just minutes away. Every detail was thought of, from water bottles in the bathroom to blenders both at the bar and in the kitchen. Might seem silly, but it made for a such an easy, relaxing stay. I didn’t have to think about anything. Lesly and Alfredo were so kind, and Lesly is an amazing cook! The little area of Tankah is cute and quiet. Don’t miss the cenotes.
My recent stay at Villa Arghy was absolutely fantastic! The beauty of the house, the outdoor space, and the beach are apparent from the pictures. What you may not realize, however, is how much thought has been put into every detail of this rental. The abundant supply of fresh drinking water, laptop with wi-fi access, toiletries, pool toys for kids (and kid-like adults), vast array of board games and videos to accommodate any preferences, beach towels, variety of sunscreens provided for you, bikes to visit the nearby cenote and restaurants, kayaks, and many many other details make this the ultimate worry-free vacation house. Of course, if you do find that you are missing anything, Lesly and Alfredo will graciously accommodate you. I could literally have shown up with just my swimsuit and a few changes of clothes and been set for the week! With everything provided, you could easily spend your entire vacation at the house. If you want more adventure, however, Villa Arghy is conveniently located close to downtown Tulum and attractions like the ruins and Xel-Ha (both of which I highly recommend). I’ve been back a few weeks now and I can’t stop thinking about the beautiful views while relaxing poolside, sleeping to the sound of the ocean, and Lesly’s fabulous cooking! I had one of the most memorable vacations ever at magnificent Villa Arghy!
Villa Arghy was spectacular in every way. Lets start the amazing view. You walk into the house and the side of the house facing the ocean is all glass. The view from these windows is something you would see in a magazine. There is nothing like relaxing in the evening by the pool with all the lights out. I that you see from the moon light are the waves. Hearing the waves crash against the ocean was so peaceful. The temp. was perfect. Warm with a nice ocean breeze. Next let me tell you about the ground keepers Leslie and Alfredo. They kept the house in pristine condition. When we had Leslie cook for us it was better than the food we had at the restaurants. The location could not have been better. It is out of the line of the tourist yet not far from everything. Within 10 min you had breath taking beaches, Mihan ruines (not sure how to spell in), Xah-ha (which is a natural water park), Deep sea fishing and much more. I have traveled all over the US and Villa Arghy in Mexico out did all my other vacations by far.
This was our 2nd visit to Villa Arghy, and it was just as good the second time! Lesly and Alfredo (property caretakers/ housekeepers/ cooks) will take care of any needs that you may have, and make sure to give you as much privacy as you would want on a vacation. I think the hardest part about vacationing here is picking what meals you would like for Lesly to prepare. She is a great cook, and we looked forward to every meal she prepared for us! The highlight of each day was happy hour, I’ve never had pico or guacamole that tasted so good! There is plenty to do within a fifteen minute drive from the Villa, our favorite was the beach at Aukumal. Free public access, plenty of places to eat, snorkeling with sea turtles, and fishing. We went there 3 of the days during our stay. The ruins on the beach in Tulum are a must see as well, you can be there with in 10 minutes of leaving the villa. Go early in the day, and you will beat the bus loads of tourists from Cancun and Playa del Carmen. After visiting the ruins, take the short drive to the beautiful beaches south of the ruins. Our favorite is El Parisio, and it leaves little doubt as to why the Travel channel consistently rates it as one of the top 10 beaches in the world! Have a cervesa and an appetizer at the beach bar there, and the parking is free. Tip- there is a 5 peso fee to use the restroom/showers. It is easy to find enough things to fill your days in vacation, but make sure to allow time to relax and enjoy the pool at Villa Arghy. Not to mention the turtles! Every night of our stay, we were able to witness the nest digging and the laying of eggs. It is an amazing experience to witness first hand, and I can’t wait to bring our boys with us next time so that I can introduce them to these awesome creatures. The new grocery store in Tulum has pretty much everything you could need, or that you may have forgotten at home. If you can’t find something you were looking for, you can always ask Lesly- and she will point you in the right direction. We can’t wait for our next trip to stay at Villa Arghy. I am confident that the third time will be a “charm” s well!
Villa Arghy never ceases to exceed our expectations. Our first visit was just a one night stay, so we were eager to spend a whole week in this immaculate house. From the moment we walked in, it was pure relaxation. Villa Arghy is immaculate both inside and out. It’s clear the owners and groundskeepers take great pride in keeping the house pristine. The house quickly feels like home with all of its state-of-the-art creature comforts (internet, satellite tv, phone, etc.), but we didn’t need those because we were too busy watching the turtles nest and exploring the surrounding area. I was previously skeptical about renting a house, wondering if the pictures really reflected what we were getting. Ha! The pictures online hardly do the house justice. But truly, the quiet efforts of Lesly and Alfredo, the groundskeepers, are what take this from an average rental to an oasis. Lesly seems to materialize at just the time you need her, and before you know it she has quietly slipped back out the door to leave you to enjoy your stay. Lesly is a fantastic cook and our group thoroughly enjoyed eating dinner at the house instead of at a restaurant. Alfredo does an exceptional job keeping the outside well maintained. The beach was always smoothed, the pool clear and never a speck of trash anywhere—not even washed up on the beach. Also, he was patient enough to humor a bunch of tourists and climb a coconut tree to make us a “Coco Loco.” Driving was my biggest concern in renting a house, but honestly, it turned out to be no big deal. Everything was within a short distance and we quickly adapted our driving skills to get along in Mexico just fine. Here’s the activities nearby that we enjoyed: –Xel Ha water park—for roughly $80, you got park admission and FREE FOOD AND DRINKS ALL DAY (alcohol included!). My favorite were the zip lines. There is also snorkeling, a lazy river, bike riding, manatees, sting rays, swimming with dolphins, and a cave. Snorkeling fins were free with a deposit. It was a great way to spend the day. I would definitely do it again. –Paraiso Beach—My second time to this beach I enjoyed it just as much. Great fish tacos and quesadillas at the restaurant on-site. The sand is like flour between your toes and the ocean a perfect temperature. –Akumal Beach—Swim with the sea turtles!! This was right up there with Xel Ha. The turtles were beautiful and were so close you could touch them. Some of our group went fishing out of he
My husband and I stayed at Villa Arghy, along with my cousin and her husband, the week of July 23. From the time of our arrival, Lesley and Alfredo treated us with such kind hospitality and were so helpful in meeting all of our needs and requests. We were completely thrilled to watch turtles come onto shore almost every night. We were even able to watch baby turtles hatch and make their journey to the water. These experiences were truly amazing! For those who are considering a stay at Villa Arghy, we would highly recommend it. It truly is a place where you can leave all of your stress behind and simply relax and enjoy the beauty and wonder of the area and of all that nature has to offer there. We will definitely plan another trip there! One final recommendation for those who stay at Villa Arghy: try Lesley’s fried chicken! It is wonderful!!!
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Arghy this August. The house is wonderful. Beautiful. Breathtaking. The staff were extremely helpful with helping us navigate the area. And getting to witness the plethora of sea turtles on the beach in front of the house was an amazing experience. We are already planning a return trip to Villa Arghy…
