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.

Perfect location and safe place

  • 5 of 5
After five days in New York and one week in Playa del Carmen, it was very nice to enjoy the peace and tranquility in Akumal, Mexico. My wife and I were in Akumal something like 18 years ago and we have been waiting for the right time to go back and bring our kids; Vetle (16), Signd (13) and Olve (10).
We have had a fabulous week here. The house has a perfect location with walking distance to Akumal. A brilliant snorkeling reef just outside, enjoyed the kayaks. We snorkeled with the turtles in the bay almost every day!
Margarita and Ismael are always smiling and helpful, it seems that they have inner peace! We leave behind a few books and our beach shoes. We appreciated our days at Isla Escape a lot, good company made us feel very safe.The welcome kit with food and drinks upon our arrival was very nice, thank you.
We rented a car which made our stay more flexible and pleasant. It was a perfect weather every day.

Superb private comfortable and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5
We found the private villa for rent on the home away website on the Internet. The response and management of our arrangement for the rental was handled very professionally and quickly. The owners of the Villa have encapsulated all of a first visitors needs in a all inclusive information packet and the first days food was stocked into the refrigerator and kitchen so we would not have to worry for finding a grocery store at our first moments of our vacation. The owners have a full-time caretaker staying in the house next-door to provide continuous maid service and complete support for whatever may come up. The Villa accommodations were very comfortable well-maintained and 100% safe and private. The arrangement inside the villa of an upstairs loft with two twin beds provided a private habitat for our two children where they loved to sit and read and play in private. Other than the loft there were two other bedrooms that provided spacious comfort even if another couple had come with us. Just outside the front room of the Villa was a comfortable covered lanai that was very pleasant to spend time looking at the ocean, like out door living space off the beach and no one could see into it from the beach so private and perfect. Also a wonderful hammock strung just inside coconut palm trees right at the edge of the ocean. The Villa's location just a short walk from the main Akumal town provided us walking distance; along the sand beach, to many restaurants shops and all the Caribbean snorkeling and diving and swimming and visits to nearby local Cenote's from in the town. We also learned the perfect mid way position of Akumal as a short drive north, south or inland to all of the Riviera Mayan's attractions. Tulum was especially used as a quick destination for dinners, shopping and beach life with unsurpassed white talcum sand beaches. I Highly recommend this rental villa if you want to visit the Riviera Mayan area it is unequaled in a high level of accommodations with security, privacy and overall perfection of the house on a beach feeling.

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.
