ARCHITECTURALLY DISTINGUISHED CASA ON WATER'S EDGE

Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Christmas Week still available. New Year's and Thanksgiving are booked. Create some new holiday memories at Casa de Colores in the sun and sand instead of in the snow and cold.

FABULOUS NEW VIDEOS! -- We had four 360-degree videos of Casa de Colores taken last summer. You can see a master bedroom, the kitchen/living/dining rooms, and the outside area. Scroll down to the Links section, and click on the Video link. You'll love what you see!

Have more than 10 in your party? Please give us a call or email-- we can provide more information on our house, and help you arrange additional housing very close to Casa de Colores.

Whether you seek an intimate getaway for two, or a family vacation for 10, this owner-built, 3,200-square foot Casa de Colores and its 600-square foot, two-story casita (Casita de Colores) are perfect for you. Situated on the North end of Half Moon Bay with magnificent, unobstructed views of the Caribbean, Casa de Colores sleeps up to 10 in the main house (if some are children)and two in the casita. Mexico is about color, and Casa de Colores does not disappoint – its vibrant, contemporary design is accented with the exciting colors of the Yucatan Peninsula – from décor to lovely linens.

In the main house, two top floor master bedrooms with king-sized beds and en-suite baths offer complete privacy, as well as sleek, double glass bowl countertop sinks and terraces overlooking the Caribbean. A family room between the master suites also has stunning views and can be a cozy getaway, complete with flat screen TV/DVD and wireless internet. It is beautifully furnished with a comfortable sofa/chaise lounge.

Two additional bedrooms on the first floor have identical private bathrooms with exquisitely tiled showers and above-counter sinks and fixtures. The Caribbean-facing bedroom offers a king-sized bed and terrace; the second bedroom offers an ocean view, but faces the aqua- and cobalt-tiled 10’ x 30’ swimming pool and cool consuela-tiled surrounding terrace. It has both a Mexican queen-sized bed and extra futon sofa that sleeps two. While the incredible breezes off the ocean naturally cool the interior, all bedrooms are air-conditioned, and all rooms in Casa de Colores and its casita have ceiling fans.

The spectacular living and dining rooms also offer Caribbean views along with contemporary, ultra-comfortable furnishings. You’ll enjoy sinking into the hot red sofas after a day of snorkeling in Yal Ku Lagoon, a short walk away, or swimming in Half Moon Bay, about 100 yards from Casa de Colores. Both have spectacular tropical fish, coral and turtles.

The stainless steel and granite kitchen, complete with dishwasher, features a breakfast counter with four bar stools as well as a center island. The sleek dining room table seats up to 10.

The Casa de Colores casita in included in the rental of the main house -- and gives parties a 5th bedroom. It overlooks the pool, but both the first floor living room and second floor bedroom have Caribbean views. The casita is comfortably furnished with a beautiful blue sofa and upholstered striped chair. It has a flat screen TV. The kitchen is also stainless and granite and the dining area seats two. The bedroom is upstairs and offers a king-sized bed and beautiful bathroom with aqua-tiled shower and above-counter, contemporary sink and fixtures. The only access to the bath is through the bedroom, so it does not lend itself to someone sleeping downstairs on an air bed.

Casa de Colores is ready for your next vacation!

Shelly and Eddie, and Susan and Nancy, built Casa de Colores from the ground up. We opened the doors during the 2007-08 holidays and have not been disappointed in any aspect. It was an incredible adventure. We all live and work in San Francisco -- real estate, law, and association management. We've been friends forever, and love time spent together here, there and traveling in Europe.

Nancy Mazza purchased this villa in 2008

We've been coming to Akumal for more than 20 years -- we love the quiet pace, warm people, and wonderful water. We've traveled throughout Mexico, and have always come back to Akumal as home. Someday we plan to retire at least 1/2 time to our Casa.

Casa de Colores has incredible views, breezes from huge sliding glass doors, the colors of the Caribbean, and so much more. The showers are tiled with turquoise pool tile, the bedrooms are each a different color. Art is a combination of local artists and our own photography (4 photo buffs) stretched on canvas. The pool is a great rectangle lap pool and the kitchen's a delight to cook in -- or not. Our end of Half Moon Bay is private and quiet, but an easy 25 minute walk (or 5 minute drive or bike ride) to the 'action.'

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
Casa de Colores is hands down an excellent place to vacation! Akumal is a small village with several wonderful little restaurants preparing excellent food. We took a few day trips but would ave been perfectly happy hanging around the pool and enjoying the little village and all it has to offer.

Casa de Colores is well known for its great location, at the end of the road in Akumal, very private, and for its funky eclectic decor. This house is perfect for large groups or families. I can't think of ANYTHING this house was missing and it even came with recipes for the owner's award winning guacamole!

The large kitchen and living area are great for entertaining and family get togethers. Access to the Yal-Ku Lagoons is very easy, just down the road and into the cool clear water of Yal-Ku where you can snorkel with the fish all day long.

This house is truly one-of-a-kind and lends itself very well to people just 'hanging out' together and having a great time! The caretakers, do an excellent job. They are very charming and will take excellent care of you. They are also available to prepare meals for an additional fee, which we highly recommend you try. They do a great job!

Casa de Colores offers many amenities including gorgeous and unique swimming pool with plenty of seating and towels. There is an outdoor shower for rinsing off after snorkeling in the lagoon and rinsing your gear.

AWESOME TRIP

  • 5 of 5
The house was incredible, the caretakers made sure we were comfortable, the location was awesome - the perfect vacation home. We loved the furnishings, the ac in all the rooms, the spacious kitchen and living area, the pool, the lanai overlooking the beach and sharing a big cup of coffee. It was incredibly relaxing and the guides provided by the owners gave us everything we needed to plan our stay.

LOVED STAYING AT THE BEAUTIFUL CASA DE COLORES!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had a wonderful time soaking in the sun at Casa de Colores. I would highly recommend this beautiful home with its fabulous location to everyone. All rooms in the house are open & spacious. A great location on the water with beautiful snorkeling just down the lane. I can't wait to return next year!

IT DOESNT GET BETTER THAN THIS!!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing way to spend the holidays with family! The house is spectacular and the 9 of us had plenty of space to be together or be apart! The kitchen has everything you need and the view from the front of the house took our breath away every day we were there.
We rented golf carts to get around which the teenagers loved! They went snorkeling and to grab ice cream at the local shops.
We enjoyed the restaurants in Akumal and even explored the pueblo which was fantastic too. Gotta get some of that chicken they make in the steel drum grills. The taste is sooo yummy!
I hope we can get back to this amazing house again some day!

PERFECT.

  • 5 of 5
The house was spacious, full of color, had every amenity one could ask for (especially in the kitchen), and was in a great location. The pool was great for the kids. We had 12 people (8 adults and 4 children) staying there for 1 week and I could always find privacy when needed or enough lounge space for everyone to sit together comfortably. It was ideal.

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends stayed at Casa De Colores in January of 2013. Every detail was perfect from the great house amenities to the staff to the ocean view from the house. We had 11 people which was no problem for the house and casita. The town of Akumal was a decent jog, but with the availability of bikes, golf carts and cars anyone can find a way into town and beyond. I will be back. Thank you for the perfect house in the perfect location.
