Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 4.5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12

Does the economy have you thinking about postponing your vacation? Well, wait no more! We’re offering the most affordable vacation villa there is in beautiful Akumal: Casa Konomi! This is a 5300' 4 bedroom, (the 4th bedroom was just added in the fall of 2014) 4.5 bathroom villa with a pool, bikes and every luxury you can think of. Free land line to call home anytime. Flat screens in every room. Private grounds and pool. Your own staff. Surround sound inside and out.

Imagine being enveloped in the hammock, you close your eyes & you breathe in the scent of the bougainvillea. Your ears drink in the sound of the rippling tide gently lapping over the rocks of Yalku Lagoon & the songs of native jungle birds in the surrounding gardens. You feel the warm breeze from the beach at Half Moon Bay flow over you like an ocean wave. You take a refreshing sip of your ice-cold beverage & realize that you’re staying in your own personal paradise.

Stay at Casa Konomi, and you'll find out it is one of the nicest appointed homes, yet, offered at one of the lowest rates you will find in the area for an Akumal villa.

It is almost impossible to contemplate how deliriously wonderful it is to stay in Casa Konomi, a luxurious 5300' 4 bedroom 4.5 bath villa. It is it's own vacation resort in the heart of Akumal, MX. Whatever your taste, this home is the kind of place where you will find yourself drawn to stay at the villa during the day rather than venturing out from your own personal paradise. This is Mexico yet it feels like home, but better.

Casa Konomi is conveniently situated between Half Moon Bay and Yalku Lagoon. It is an easy walk to the sandy beach, or the lagoon, both are prime for snorkeling. Unique to this villa, the owner provides a golf cart and bikes to make getting around Akumal easy and quick. The location gives guests the unusual opportunity to be secluded by lush gardens, creating a private escape unlike any other rental home in the area. Every minute of the day is spent with the tranquil sound of breaking waves from the ocean waters surrounding the peninsula the home sits on. The owners like to update it every year, so many guests return time after time as they know the villa improves with age! The Mercure party returned in February and said 'The house is better than ever!'

There are three large en-suite bedrooms, with a 4th bedroom just added in the fall of 2015 with shared bath, in this 5,360 sq. ft. villa. Located on the second floor, the floral style master bedroom suite is called Blue Lagoon. Also on the second floor is another bedroom suite, Mapumalanga ('the setting sun') with a delightful safari theme. The third spacious garden bedroom suite, Shangri-La (it can be rented alone as a 'bungalow' in the low seasons) is on the main level. The newly added fourth bedroom has a Queen bed. Every room has two entrances, one leading to a veranda, another to the inside of the villa.

Casa Konomi has amazing attention to detail, from the monkeys carved into the building's decorative architecture, to the many stained glass windows featured throughout the house. The living room and dining room have been carefully thought out with no cost spared for aesthetic themes.The newly tiled rooftop terrace offers amazing vistas of the sea, the jungle and the lagoon. Enjoy an evening filled with stars from this top floor retreat.

Everything needed for a perfect stay is on hand and the staff is at your service to help. Quite unusual to rental homes, there is a fully equipped laundry room with a washer, dryer and plenty of cleaning products. For a small additional fee and with some notice, the maid will gladly do laundry for guests or the caretaker can arrange for a cook. Leave the bulky beach towels at home, Casa Konomi will provide as many beach towels as needed, as well as coolers, hats and more. The home is equipped with a safe for valuables.

Every bedroom has air conditioning as well as fans. Each has a large walk in closet. The bathrooms are spacious and spectacular. Rare to the area, bedrooms have soft carpeted floors. The spacious kitchen is equipped with two refrigerators, a state of the art stove, a full size microwave, a gourmet coffee machine and more. There is nothing this kitchen does not provide. Four flat screen TVs give choices to guests, one in the living room and one in each bedroom. There are plenty of DVDs, CDs and games for your enjoyment, as well as DISH TV if all you want is the surround sound of music playing while you fall asleep beside the pool. Wireless internet is available in Casa Konomi so please remember to bring your laptop so you can send home photos daily to make friends and family green with envy. The owner offers free calling for their guests to the US and Canada.

Casa Konomi is going green too! Eco friendly light bulbs have been installed throughout the villa. Six all terrain bikes are on hand for those wishing to ride around Akumal. Not the biking type? No worries,an electric golf cart has been provided for your stay, perfect for trips to the lagoon, the bays, dinner out, or Chomak Market.

A new palapa has been added over the front entry, and all other palapas have been replaced. The pool is newly refurbished. The BBQ is new. Even the plumbing is all new. The house is even better than before and it was perfect to begin with.

The staff is there to take care of you, and can also be hired to cook for you, or provide personal laundry for a per load fee. The grounds are impeccable. Outdoor covered dining next to the cascading waterfall into the lit pool at night makes for many memorable meals when dining in. This villa is a Caribbean Fantasy return client favorite. Feel secure as there in a full time security guard on staff.

Look no further, there is nowhere else where you will feel the life being breathed back into you like at Casa Konomi. This is a place for rest and relaxation, a resort in itself, an oasis in paradise.

About Jill

A family in love with Akumal!

Jill purchased this villa in 2000

Why Jill chose Akumal

The locals are so warm and friendly, and we fell in love with the villa as it offered so many more extras than the others we knew about. Every year, we fall in love with it again, and add new wonderful things to make it better and better!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Life can't get much better than spending a week in Akumal at Casa Konomi during the winter, while snow storms are moving across the US Midwest! We were looking for something other than the large resorts in Cancun and this is exactly what we wanted. Our family of four arrived to 80-degree, sunny weather and spent the afternoon swimming in the pool, reading on the porches, and sleeping in the hammock. As the sun set we enjoyed the 360-degree view of the ocean and the jungle from the rooftop and stayed to watch a thousand stars come out! The huge rooftop patio is one of our favorite parts of the house and we watched sunsets almost every evening, and we took our morning coffee up for a few sunrises as well. We loved the quiet location and the nearby Yal Ku Lagoon where we snorkeled several times. You get a wrist-band that lets you return to snorkel again on the same day, so we usually went at 9:00AM and returned around 2:00PM. Our son loved driving us in the villa's golf cart. Lucio all the Mayans around are among the friendliest people anywhere.We became accustomed to having Leti wash our dishes and do our laundry every day. There are three nearby restaurants that we went to. Somehow we managed to find time to play tennis at Las Casita as well as visit the Mayan ruins at Tulum. If you go to Tulum take your bathing suits because the ruins are on a cliff overlooking a beautiful swimming beach with big waves. What a great vacation!

Casa Konomi

  • 5 of 5

There are really no words to describe the beauty of this property. The home and grounds are immaculate, gorgeous, and there is something to see in every nook and cranny. Being in Akumal is wonderful, but staying at this fabulous home is the icing on the cake. We have vacationed at Casa Konomi for 3 years and look forward to many more in the future. This incredible place is truly paradise.

Oh, and the owners, housekeeper, and caretaker are super nice and wonderful to deal with!

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

How does one describe paradise? Is it a place with wonderful. temperate weather? Is a place with both beautiful jungles and beaches? Is it a home with wonderful amenities? Is it a place with great food? Is it a place with good shopping? Is it a place with great sightseeing opportunities? Is it a place with great entertainment? If one is staying at Casa Konomi, it's a big YES to all of the above.

The house exceeded the listing photos and was kept in immaculate condition. We didn't even use the beautiful dining room because we enjoyed eating on the patio palapa so much. We had our morning coffee in one of the conversation areas on the veranda. There are so many nooks and crannies where one can read a book or just cool out in complete privacy.

The extravaganza at Xcaret (Mayan/Mexican history and entertainment) was as good as any musical I have paid much more to see. We found wonderful restaurants both in Akumal and in other towns, and the food prices were reasonable. We liked the Mayan Fisherman in Playa del Car, the Tapa Restaurant in Playa del Carmen, La Buena Vida in Akumal, a streetside Chicken restaurant in Tulum. I could go on and on. Try the Mayan Coffee at La Buena Vida - it's a real show. We went on a wonderful tour to a nature preserve with a zip line and cenote. Then on to see the Mayan ruins at Coba. Also went to the ruins at Tulum. Many, many ancient sights nearby.

It was a wonderful, relaxing vacation, and I'm looking forward to going back.

Casa Konome

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 of us, ranging in age from 26 to 76, stayed at Casa Konomi in mid December. The house is huge, and we always found something new to marvel at. It is really sort of an oasis of calm and very private, though within easy walking distance to the beach and lagoon (this time of year I would suggest a shortie wetsuit or wetskin if you are going to do a lot of snorkeling). We really enjoyed the rooftop terrace, the wrap around verandas and hamaca palapa area, and the pool area complete with grill. We grilled and ate our meals outside everytime we dined at the house. The kitchen is well stocked, we shopped at Chedraui's in Tulum or Soriana's (good "casa de cambio" in front of this grocery store) near Playa del Carmen. The kids enjoyed the DVD selection that the owners provided and the spacious couches to lounge around on. Lucio is the caretaker (and always has a smile on his face) and will take care of your every need along with Maria, the housekeeper (who cooks a mean Mayan dish) and keeps the place squeaky clean. We rented a car and explored the area, but our tour with Lucio was really the highlight of our trip. We enjoyed many good restaurants in the area including La Buena Vida, La Lunita, and Lol Ha (all in Akumal), Xulam in Playacar, and Tierra Espana in Playa del Carmen. There are many good eateries along the main avenue in Tulum also. Would we stay at Casa Konomi again? Most definitely! Would I recommend it to a friend? Of course, and it is especially great if you have a group because you're not tripping over one another, and you can still have some privacy. We loved it!

Casa Konomi Fun for all Ages

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa Konomi for a group of five and it was more than adequate, it could have easily held a group of 12 or more in comfort. The house has a great rooftop terrace for sunbathing, wrap around verandas and a beautiful pool area with several seating arrangements. There is plenty to entertain all and beach towels, coolers, and the golf cart were included, what more could you want? The house is very well maintained by Lucio and kept very clean by Maria. The house is between the lagoon and the beach with easy acccess to either. It's a very laid back area and an easy walk to restaurants, etc. The owner was available by phone to answer any questions, but Lucio or Maria could handle any question or help with any need. We rented a car in Cancun (watch out for the topes (speed "bumps") if you do this!) and explored a lot of the surrounding area. I would definitely recommend Casa Konomi to a friend and look forward to renting it again in the future.

A wonderful stay for the entire dozen of us

  • 5 of 5

From June 19 to June 24, twelve members of our extended family resided in the beautiful Casa Konomi in Akumal. The house itself is candy for the eye, tastefully furnished and decorated, and spacious. So much detail is given to the artistic appeal of the home, from the mosaic flooring, to the tiled counter tops, to the nifty selection of paints used on the various walls and ceilings. However, the greatest asset is Lucio, who keeps the grounds immaculate, and Maria, who keeps the house spotless. The two of them are sincere, energetic, and kind. Having a double fridge, a huge stove, an outside grill, and FIVE bathrooms allowed for an extended family of twelve to avoid stepping on each other's toes while coexisting under one roof. An outside patio on the roof offered the perfect get-away and provided some breathtaking views of the sea and the jungle to boot. We often used the bicycles that were at our disposal to pedal into the town or to the bay. There is so much more to say, but anyone who goes to Casa Konomi will discover this for him or herself.

Truly one of the most enjoyable and relaxing experiences!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Konomi was a heavenly experience! I spent a girls week accompanied by my mother, cousin, and aunt, and it couldn't have been nicer. The house is spectacular! Every detail, every comfort, was waiting for us. The caretakers were fabulous and felt like family by day two! The house is beautiful and couldn't be any quainter! I highly reccomend it and Akumal to anyone looking for a less touristy adventure!

Car: recommended

Casa Konomi is located in Akumal, a quaint resort of private residences in the popular Riviera Maya. Akumal, which in Maya is 'The place of the turtles' is one of the most satisfying destinations on the azure Caribbean coastline. This villa is with-in walking distance of Yalku Lagoon, a natural aquarium which never fails to impress those interested in a fantastic snorkeling experience. Also with in a short walk from Casa Konomi are Half Moon Bay beach and Akumal Bay beach; both bays are filled with stunning coral reefs and sea life such as turtles, rays and schools of colorful fish. The drive to Cancun airport is an easy hour + drive, yet light years away from the hustle and bustle. Nearby are the busy towns of Playa Del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, and Tulum. It is only short scenic drive to the famous Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza. Dramatic eco-parks such as Xcaret and Xel-Ha are just a few minutes in either direction. Beaches near Casa Konomi are gorgeous and unique.

Other Activities: Scuba diving, snorkeling, jungle tours, ziplines, Mayan Ruins

Golf: There are several golf courses in the area. Located in Playa del Carmen is Playacar Club de Golf. This is an 18 hole Golf Course designed by Robert Von Hagge and built amongst the lush foliage of the Yucatan Peninsula. The Club provides a first class practice area, complete with a spectacular driving range, and a large putting green. Playacar is about a 30 minute drive north of Akumal on the southern end of Playa del Carmen.

Located just minutes south of Akumal is the newly built (2010) Gran Bahia Principe Golf Course. Designed by Robert Tent Jones, the club offers both an 18 hole par 72 layout as well as a 9 hole par 36 layout.
