Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description

4BR Oceanfront Vacation Rental Akumal, Mexico

South Akumal (one and a half miles south of Akumal) has 25 homes (no hotels, condos, or time-shares) in a gated community rimming a very private, secluded, sandy-beach bay. It is the ideal place for the family who wishes to escape, be reasonably secluded, and achieve near-total relaxation with relative privacy.

Casa Acacia is ocean-oriented. The upstairs master suite and main living areas have the ocean as the primary focal point from each of its rooms (every room except the garden casita has a full view of the ocean and the reef). Sleep in air-conditioned comfort, or open the windows to hear the surf and feel the gentle breeze assisted by the ceiling fans. For the hardy, try the hammocks.

Maid-service, a change of linens, and all cleaning is included. Have Maggie fix your dinners for you (three are included in the rental; you cover the groceries), or dine at some of the finest, nearby restaurants on the Riviera Maya.

Shopping for necessities, groceries, and the like are within one and a half miles of the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a once-in-a-lifetime trip. We have enjoyed all of the new experiences. The beach was the best place for playing with our grandkids. Luis made our stay even better. The meal he fixed was done with flair and style. "Ladies" the shopping is great.

Pure relaxation

  • 5 of 5

I had visited the Akumal area quite a few years ago and have always wanted to return to this place of paradise . This was My first time staying at Casa Acacia and the house is located on the best spot at Akumal sur. The bay is protected by a reef and the waters are no deeper than 5 1/2 feet, which provides the most spectacular snorkeling experience I have ever had.

Hammocks to relax in and a sea kayak for your enjoyment. We were two couples with more room than we needed.

The roof top provided us with wonderful star gazing at night and gorgeous sunrises in the morning. Quite spot to listen to the sea and read a book.

The owners of the property are wonderful and easy going, the packet of information they send To find the home is spot on. We rented a car at the airport and drove it was easy. We stopped at the Chedraui in Playa del Carmen on our way for a big grocery shop. Everything you could possible need including beer,wine and liquor.

Doris and Abraham the housekeeper and grounds keeper are charming and helpful. Doris will cook for you her chile reños and Flan are delicious.

The home is a modest beach house nothing fancy the furniture is a bit tired. There is a downstairs kitchen that is great for keeping snacks and beverage for easy access from the pool and beach. The upstairs kitchen although small is fully stocked for all your cooking needs. Gas range, refrigerator , toaster , blender, etc.

Some day I hope to return thank you Pete for sharing this place .

WOW!! We almost stayed in Cozumel again. Are we ever gald that we didn't !!

  • 5 of 5

In years past we've visited Cozumel and we almost did this year, but are we EVER GLAD THAT WE DIDN'T! Because we wanted to visit a number of places on the mainland we decided to try to reserve Casa Acacia. What a perfect place !!! Everything in the description and pictures are exactly as described and shown "puffing", no "hype". I've never met an owner more helpful than Pete. He just eased us right along and made the reservation a nice experience. The information package which he sent was informative, detailed and specific. (You can't get lost.)

When we arrived the home was clean and ready for us (keys exactly where expected). The housekeepers, Doris y Gabriel, were truly kind, efficient and always helpful. My sister having found a coconut on the ground asked Gabriel if he could open it. We made a video of him doing so with a machete to the delight of our friends in the states. Don't forget to let Doris prepare a dinner for you. It will be delicious !!

For transportation, we used a limousine service to and from the Cancun airport and Casa Acacia. While in Akumal we used a local taxi for close by places like restaurants and Xel-Ha. (The guards a your gate will help you get one.) We also had a rental car delivered right to our door at the casa and picked up there when we left.

All of the restaurants in Akumal were enjoyable. Local attractions which we particularly enjoyed were Xel-Ha and the Tulum ruins.

Perfect Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had visited the Akumal area on an excursion in the past and loved the people and the small community and decided we would like to stay there when we returned. After searching on the VRBO website and found this perfect property. It had everything we needed for our party of 5 adults including plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The beach was just a few steps from the back door and most mornings our group would be the only ones out there on the entire stretch. We spent countless hours snorkeling and exploring the coral reef and all of it's wonders just yards from the beach.

Doris our housekeeper visited daily to make sure the house was clean and fresh. The grounds keeper was there also every morning to groom the yard and rake the beach. In addition the Property Manager came by once a week or so to make sure we had everything we needed to make our vacation the best it could be. While we were there during the 15 day stay we had a couple of maintenance items that needed addressed which were taken care of immediately.

Doris cooked for us a few times and the food was so tasty we ate until we could eat no more.

We have been to this part of Mexico a few times and have seen most of the local attractions so this time we stayed close to the house and just enjoyed all it had to offer. For those new to the area we definitely recommend eating at La Buena Vida and Lol Ha in Akumal, our favorite restaurants. Also, close by are the Tulum and Coba ruins and Xcaret Park which are incredible. I highly recommend the night show at Xcaret.

This was the last vacation I was able to take with my best friend of 30 years before she lost her battle to Cancer. She thoroughly enjoyed herself the entire stay, our days were filled with happiness and laughter. What a wonderful memory it made for all of us fortunate enough to share the time with her in Mexico.

Owner's Response: Chris; We are very sorry for the loss of your dear friend. But this is might be a time to remember why we named our home, "Casa de Acacia": Acacia is the name of our miracle baby--she was born with HIV in her system, but after 3 years Stanford could no longer find the virus (in spite of having previously cultured the virus from her blood). At 18, they finally gave her a clean bill of health. Unbeknownst to the doctors was the fact that our church and the Bible class at the local Christian high school had been praying for her to be healed. So, Casa de Acacia has become for us a place of refuge. It is a place to celebrate life--to forget about death and dying, and to focus on life and the vibrant relationships which it affords. At the same time, it is a constant reminder to us of our Great Healer, who is the author of life; who can heal our afflictions, restore life and revitalize our relationships.

Better than expected!

My family of 3 just returned from 10 days at Casa de Acacia and are already planning our return visit next winter. The pictures on the site don't do the place justice. Doris who holds a dual role of personal chef and housekeeper took very good care of us and the incredible meals she prepared were a highlight of our trip. Gabriel kept the outside of the house pristine and always took time to visit with us. He was exceptional with my 9 yr old boy and was patient with all his questions. The snorkelling right out front was amazing. I took my son out many times and never feared for his safety in the reef sheltered bay. One of the highlights of our snorkelling was having a 5ft spotted eagle ray casually swim by us, about 30 ft from shore. We also enjoyed paddling around the bay in the 2 person kayak. We walked to the town of Akumal a few times and it is only 20 min down the beach, walking at casual pace soaking in the sights. You can pick up most small grocery things in town. Gabriel is also very helpful in arranging taxis and even knows people at some of the local attractions. My wife went to "Indiana Joe's" and despite the name she found it to be not over run with people or too "touristy". All in all Casa de Acacia is money very well spent and we will definitely be returning next winter. A big thank you to Pete, Gabriel and Doris.

Absolutely Amazing Week in Akumal

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to know where to begin when describing our stay at Casa de Acacia. The house is wonderful, with nicely decorated and comfortable bedrooms and living spaces. The staff keeps the house and grounds remarkably clean and the manager is very helpful. But as great as the house is the real reason to come is the beach.

The beach here is beautiful and it's right outside your door! The yard and beach feel very secluded and private even when there are people next door. The water is warm and clear and the snorkeling right outside the house is as good as anywhere else around. The reef means that the water in the protected bay is almost always very smooth and easy to swim in, a definite plus.

One of my favorite things about this house is the rooftop patio. Do yourself a favor and get up before sunrise and head up to the patio. You will not regret waking up a little early, the sunrise over the Caribbean that you are rewarded with is well worth missing a couple hours of sleep. And then be sure to visit the patio again at night and take in a view of the stars that a city dweller like me never gets to see.

Our stay at Casa de Acacia was one of our best vacations ever. I will never stay at a hotel again. Having your own house on your own beach, can't be beat, even if it is just for a week. I am looking forward to my next visit to Casa de Acacia. I will be back to this little piece of paradise.
