THE ONLY AND MOST CHARMING LUXURY BEACHFRONT COTTAGE ON THE RIVIERA MAYA

Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description

two bedrooms + 1open loft, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, full AC, right at the beach

A charming and comfortable beachfront cottage, located at Jade Bay in Akumal, Riviera Maya, Mexico. The cottage is privately located in the beautiful tropical garden of a private gated property. Its terrace is only 15 yards from the beach and a 10 minute beach walk from Akumal Village. A choice of cozy restaurants will satisfy your appetite. Akumal, 'the place of the turtles', is located between Playa del Carmen with its European flavoured vivid night life and Tulum with its historical Maya ruins. Carpark, private gate, and much more. To find out more visit our website, see link in 'Further Details' below.

Beautiful Beachfront Cottage: Usually, beach front villas along the Riviera Maya are big and not meant for a couple or small family to stay, they have usually 5+ bedrooms. The weekly rates are high and not affordable unless you shop around to fill the beds. Our Cottage offers you the Caribbean beachfront joy, the privacy of your own secluded tropical garden and beachfront. An affordable alternative in paradise!

How to Get There: Conveniently located close to the highway 307 from Cancun to Tulum, exit Las Villas Akumal, km 253. Isla Escape can be reached by public transportation with a transfer to the Paradas Continuas or a taxi at Playa del Carmen. All major car rental companies are present at Cancun airport. Car rental is also available at Akumal. Detailed routing will be provided with your booking confirmation through our website.

Where to Go, What to Do: This holiday destination offers a great variety of cultural, historical and leisure activities. If you don`t like 'activities' you may simply lay back and relax on the terrace or the beach with a good book and the ever lasting sound of the ocean. For an extensive tour and information of the area, please visit our website.

GETTING A REAL BREAK

  • 5 of 5
Isla Escape honours it's name. Here nothing is missing to realize your wish to escape hectic life and completely rewind. We have enjoyed our 10 day stay in December under a stark blue sky and with the sound of the nearby ocean very much. The Cottage is realy complete, clean, very well maintained and located in beautiful nature a few steps away from a clean beach that appeared to be a very popular jogging area. Diving opportunities and a popular snorkeling site, a variety of restaurants and shopping, all at beach-walking distance. We enjoyed the privacy of the garden and the beachfront so much that we hesitated to go out. Tulum and Playa del Carmen nearby, two places with a total different character and worthwile to hang around. We have found Isla Escape totally in accordance with what is advertised on Homeaway and the IslaEscape website. The owners, who live next door, were a real asset, kind and caring. We loved Isla Escape and would recommend everybody to consider the beauty of this place. The cottage is small and is in our opinion comfortable for maximum four persons and OK for kids as well.

AMAZING COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
Our week at this cottage was nothing short of perfection. We thought long and hard about renting a house (versus staying at a hotel) and could not have been happier with our choice. Small touches - a bottle of wine and a few food items in the fridge upon arrival, the friendliness of the owners, the wonderful service of the housekeeper and gardener, and the lovely charm of the cottage, and an ideal setting on a quiet part of the beach - all made this a vacation to remember. The location is also ideal - close enough to walk to the lovely village of Akumal or a short drive for dinner to Tulum. Lots of great cenotes in the area, and YalKu lagoon for snorkeling. A perfect cottage for a small family or couple. We were so sad to leave and can't wait to come back!

PERFECT LOCATION, PERFECT VACATION.

  • 5 of 5
This lovely casita exceeded all my expectations. The location was fantastic, with the town of akumal an easy 10 minute walk along the beach in one direction and beautiful, often deserted beach to walk along and explore in the other direction. The property was immaculate due to the very pleasant couple who maintained the house and garden. The owner was incredibly accommodating securing a masseuse and private chef for one of the days we were there. (the private chef, ricardo, cooked the most delicious 4 course meal for us which we enjoyed on the outdoor terrace while listening to the waves crashing). The terrace became a favored spot for breakfast and lunch and was a great place to escape the rain which fell two mornings we were there. It was nice to still be able to enjoy the outdoors and see the ocean.

We did not rent a car and found it very easy to walk or catch public transportation to get around. The travel agency in Akumal was a great resource for securing transportation back to the airport.

It was so hard leaving this tropical paradise. It felt very private but not at all remote. This was by far one of the best homes i have rented.

BEAUTIFUL ESCAPE!!

  • 5 of 5
There are no words that do this beautiful, private space justice. We loved it--and would return in a second. Our vacation in this charming cottage was true gift to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Everything that the owners say is true and more!! It is truly beautiful and offers incredible respite and a place a-part for those who cherish quiet (as we did)--yet there are ample opportunities for those who wish to explore too.

ISLE ESCAPE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This charming casita was beyond our expectations. 4 busy moms were looking for a respite and adventure. The property is more lovely than the pictures could show and is maintained beautifully. The owners next door were kind and helpful as were the maid and gardener. The hammock was seldom empty and views of the water from every corner of the property. We seldom spent time inside except to sleep as the outdoor room covered by palapa and lounges by the ocean served us well. We enjoyed grilling vegetables bought at the local market on the outdoor grill. Terrific location for a swim, snorkel and siteseeing. Would recommend this highly and hope to return!
