About Betty Donellan

We moved from the Southern California beach area to the Houston area of Texas. Our dream is to live in our home in Paradise at least half of the year. We never want to leave once we are down here and once you are here, you will understand why.

Betty Donellan purchased this House in 2014

Why Betty Donellan chose Akumal

Once we visited this area I knew I wanted to come back to make this at least my second home. The longer one stays here, the more one wants to stay longer. There is never enough time to see and do all the things the Riviera Maya has to offer with its numerous cenotes, ruins, beautiful beaches, fabulous restaurants, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, and swimming with the turtles. Second only to the Great Barrier Reef, our protected reef is alive with sea life and the gorgeous turquoise blue water keeps me amazed daily. When you come back from the day at the beach, stroll steps from the house to the infinity pool and enjoy use of the BBQ to cook dinner. If you come during the summer, make sure you book a trip to swim with the whale sharks, the most amazing once in a lifetime experience you'll have to swim with these massive docile creatures. They are only here during the summer, so book early and book the whale shark tour to get the most out of your vacation in paradise. If you are a golfer, you cannot help but be amazed with this gorgeous Golf Course, ranked #3 in all of Mexico, as well as be challenged by it. Even if you don't golf, you will view with amazement the lush green course with its cenotes lakes and rivers. The house is located right across from the white tees on the 4th hole, a par 5.

What makes this House unique

With floor to ceiling windows opening the world outside to you inside, you will awaken to the sound of the birds in the morning and the peace and tranquility of the trees blowing in the breeze at night. State of the art appliances and top of the line cookware await you.

Guest Reviews

Great location and ammenities!!

We loved the house, location and all the amenities available to us. We would recommend this property to anyone! Right on golf course and near pool!

Great time at Tao Spacious Golf Course Villa!

The house is spacious, clean and lovely. The location is perfect on the 4th hole of the golf course with a view of the waterfall. The outdoor patio is great for entertaining and a relaxing dinner. The amenities at Bahia Principe are fantastic and the ocean is beautiful. The owners provide good customer service and take great pride in their property. Looking forward to another vacation there in the future.

A gorgeous home situated in a tropical paradise!

This is by far the nicest vacation property we have ever stayed at, and it\'s even more beautiful than the photos suggest. The house was spotless and decorated in warm, tropical colors. The outside area is huge, and we loved sitting out there every morning with our coffee, overlooking the lush landscape. The owners were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area and gave us some fabulous suggestions for activities and restaurants. I highly recommend staying here. You\'ll love it!

Great Family Vacation!

We were looking for a place on the Mayan Riviera that would accommodate our party of six. We needed 4 bedrooms and were thrilled to see that Bettys house was available! The Bahia Principe resort seemed huge at first, but we learned the ropes after one day and after that it was very easy to navigate. There is a shuttle that will take you to the beach and any of the other hotels on this resort. My friend and I did yoga and Zumba on the beach of the Akumal hotel every morning. It was a spectacular setting : ) Bettys house is very nice! It is fully equipped and had everything we needed for our 10 day stay there. We ate 2 meals in and 1 meal out every day so it definitely made our stay more affordable. And the living room area is large so we all had Netflix movie nights most evenings. If youre looking four large beautiful home to go with family or friends, I would highly recommend Bettys place!

Thanksgiving Review

We stayed here during the week of Thanksgiving. It is in Akumal area and 20 min from the hip part of Tulum :). This was a great area. We could walk 5 steps to the pool or a block or so to the wellness center that was beautiful and peaceful. The house was clean and accommodating. There was construction going on all around us that we could hear in the morning and through out the day but we still were able to relax and enjoy our time. We are so sad to come back to the cold weather! I highly recommend staying here!
