Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, sleeps 5
Esperanza offers a quiet, peaceful setting a mere 3 minute walk to Akumal Bay and central Akumal. Akumal Bay is the primary gathering spot where you can enjoy the sugar white beaches and pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea. In central Akumal, you will find all the conveniences you need, including restaurants, grocery stores, Internet services, dive centers and more. Pride of ownership is evident throughout this hacienda style home. Talavera tile counter tops and red terra cotta floors complement tropical hardwood doors and windows. The bedrooms are separated from the living quarters and all open to an arched terrace and swimming pool surrounded by a beautiful garden. The kitchen is a gourmet cook's delight. Fully equipped, Esperanza offers the modern conveniences of home with the charm of colonial Mexico, all in the idyllic setting of Akumal. Once you visit, you will not want to leave. Once you leave, you are bound to return.
The villa has a lovely living room, but most guests spend their time relaxing on the large, covered outdoor terrace. From the terrace, there is an uninterrupted view of the mangrove forest, one of Mexico's most precious natural resources, where exotic birds and animals are often heard. The patio wraps around the swimming pool where resort quality lounge chairs are situated for sunbathing by day and star gazing by night.
Just off the living room there is a small terrace, shaded in the morning, making a perfect place to enjoy your first cup of coffee. A separate study, detached from the main living area, provides a cozy retreat for those who might seek a little solitude during their stay. Here you have the privacy to read a good book or take a long nap in air conditioned comfort. The study has a futon for an additional guest.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The quiet, sleepy village of Akumal is a wonderful place to relax, enjoy the sun, ocean - Peace! Esperanza is so homey. I found myself comfortable just being here - no need to be elsewhere. Great day trips included Valladolid (an inland city) where shopping is plentiful. Found a fabulous leather shoe store where they were actually making the shoes in the back room. Had dinner at a wonderful restuarant. Oh, and the ruins - right outside Valladolid is an exquisite, well-kept secret - Ek Balam - few tourists and beautiful Mayan architecture. Tulum was also great. I'll definitely return for a relaxing vacation soon and for a longer time!
