Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description

Private Villa 3 Bedrooms + 3 Baths, Sleeps 7-On the Beach-Steps from the surf

Put your toes in the water, butt in the sand. Relax in the hammock under the palms with a cold beer in your hand. And this is only the first day of your vacation at our beautiful Villa Italiano on the Mayan Riviera.

We have three bedrooms with their own private baths and views of the sparkling turquoise Caribbean waters. The two upstairs bedrooms have small balconies for two to view the beach or sunrise. The beds are made each morning (except Sunday) by our housekeeper, Ana. Each bedroom has an individually controlled air conditioner.

We have a large modern kitchen in which you can prepare a home made meal and as an added bonus Ana will wash the dishes in the morning. Or we can arrange to have home made meals prepared at the villa for you (dinner only). If you prefer dining out, there are also many native restaurants within 15 minutes. There are fresh fruit stands in every little town, notably Akumal and Tulum.

Our cheerful on-site property manager, Bijan, is a transplant from the Canada and can provide useful information on activities, restaurants and turtle watching. In addition, if you have any issues while you are vacationing at Villa Italiano, Bijan will help resolve it.

Our grand room is designed for a cozy family evening with an entertainment center that has books, games, DVD movies and CDs. During the day you can snorkel, swim or kayak right out back in our reef protected bay. You can also walk down the beach and hire a small fishing boat for a short ride just outside the bay.

Pedro, our groundskeeper, will keep the windows sparkling clean and the beach out front well groomed. He will also set up a kids inflatable pool for the toddlers if you desire.

For the nature lovers, if you come down between April and November you can witness the nesting habits and hatching of loggerhead and green turtles right on our beaches. These turtles can get up to 450 lbs.

For the ancient civilization buffs, there are numerous major and minor Mayan ruins within 3 hours of Villa Italiano including: Tulum, Coba, Ek Balam, Uxmal, Chichen Itza, Mayapan, Lultun and Muyil to name a few.

For the fisherman the prime time is April, May & June for wahoo, mahi-mahi, yellowfin tuna, sailfish, white and blue marlin and others..

This is a family vacation villa owned by three siblings. It’s named Villa Italiano in honor of our Italian roots. We try to maintain a cozy, casual and fun atmosphere. We want you to kick off your shoes, lay back and enjoy the sun sipping on a mango margarita. We can provide a map of local restaurants that we favor and have visited many times.

Loren purchased this villa in 1986

We chose this location because it is far enough away from civilization to be relaxing. Yet it is close enough to a number of local restaurants and shopping. We are on a secluded beach with low foot traffic and we consider it the best bay from Cancun to Tulum. We also are enjoy Mayan history and there are numerous significant ruins within a day’s ride.

We are slightly off the beaten track but still fairly close everything. We have a native well maintained garden out front.

We have been vacationing in the area for 20+ years and we never get tired of watching the large loggerhead and green turtles preform their nesting ritual. We also enjoy visiting the numerous Mayan ruins in the area. They continually are finding new ruins and continuing to excavate existing sites, so we never run out of new things to see.

PERHAPS OUR FAVORITE FAMILY FUN & RELAXING VACATION.

Perhaps our favorite family fun & Relaxing vacation.
  • 5 of 5
Easy to rent, easy to get to, convenient to groceries, area attractions and diving. The house and grounds were great and private. The crystal clear water with sandy beach entrance was around 40 paces from the house. Great ocean breeze everyday with the sound of waves we greatly miss. House comes with daily grounds keeper, very thorough daily maid service and property manager always accessible. Any issues will be handled professionally. Why would you stay in a hotel or condo primarily for sleeping and fighting for chairs and beach space? Pay less, receive same care or BETTER and enjoy a 3 bed 3 bath home (one room w/2 beds) with your own private beach and a house you actually look forward to being in. We enjoyed great kayaking and snorkeling right off the beach, scuba diving just beyond the reef in front of the house as well as the very close cenotes (google it). We visited Tulum and Coba ruins cheap and close approx 10 and 45 mins away with shopping along the way. Our 15 yr old daughter really enjoyed the convenience of snorkeling in front of the house as well as with the turtles in the next bay to the north (don't pay to park or let them charge you for snorkeling in front of Lol Ha at Akumal). Our 17 yr old son became a certified diver during the week through the dive shop practically next door. The rest of the trip was spent enjoying the sun, relaxing in the hammock or the very comfortable lounge chairs under the shade Palapa on beach. We enjoyed having just about every meal outside under the attached palapa covered porch. Tips: grocery shopping at Chedraui, a supermarket 10 minutes north and another one in Playa, (cheaper than home) peso 12.55 to $1 US. Exchange money at a bank once you are in Mexico NOT the airport only 10 peso to $1. Don't panic there are banks once you leave the airport. If it's Sat. or Sun just exchange a little bit. ATM's work well too. Chedraui and multiple banks in Playa Del. Great tacos btw at little restaurant on corner across street of east end of supermarket. Rent a car, it's easy. PACK LIGHT! We pack one carry-on/person and check one large bag for our family of 4 and still don't. Bring your own snorkel gear and pack Target sunscreen (good stuff) in checked luggage along with all your snorkel/dive gear. We have been blessed to travel the Caribbean, spent weeks on various Islands and taken a few cruises so this review does not come as a first time beach vacation buzz. One of our top 3 family vacations for sure.

GREAT VACATION HOUSE ON THE BEACH CLOSE TO AKUMAL

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and friends have rented Villa Italiano 4 times over last several years. We love the location, about half way between Playa del Carmen and Tulum and right next door to Akumal. The house itself is just perfect and very well kept. The staff is always gracious and helpful whenever asked. We think Villa Italiano is a perfect vacation destination!

OUR WONDERFUL VISIT TO VILLA ITALIANO!

  • 5 of 5
Wow. Where to begin!? Probably the most obvious is the incredible proximity to the water. It was amazing to fall asleep every night with waves crashing a mere 70 feet from my bed. I've never before witnessed a more beautiful sunrise or sunset! How spoiled we felt to have Pedro taking care of the outdoor areas/beach for us every morning and Ana cleaning up each morning! It was nice to have a tidy place at all times. They were truly wonderful and a big help to our family. Thanks to Pedro for taking the time to re-fill the kiddie pool daily so that our 4 year old had a clean place to swim if she wanted a change from the ocean. We loved having Ana & Lucy cook for us a couple of nights --and BOY were the leftovers a treat!! Everything was just great. We truly wanted for nothing during our stay at Villa Italiano. Thanks for EVERYTHING :-)

WE LOVE VILLA ITALIANO~5 STARS PLUS!

  • 5 of 5
We have previously stayed in Villa Italiano several times and always found it to be a perfect place in Paradise. It has been a number of years since we were last at V.I. It is now even better! Having Ruth on site, the amenities are just what you want in a rental (but rarely get). Large cooler for road trips or heading to one of the larger grocery stores. Large flashlights, zip lock bags in all sizes and more. Ruth allows you to have perfect privacy unless you need her. She is readily available , but never intrusive. Plus Anna and Pedro (staff) keep the beach and villa immaculate. We highly recommend V. Italiano. As long time veterans to the area, have been traveling to the area annually since the early 80's, we wholeheartedly recommend this jewel! Thanks Loren, Ruth!, Anna and Pedro for a perfect stay.

YOU WON'T WANT TO LEAVE

Everything you need is right here. Perfect location, well maintained and equipped home, the hospitality of Loren, the owner, and Ruth, the property manager, make this a wonderful vacation. We spent most evenings drinking wine on the patio listening to the waves and enjoying that view you see in the photograph above. Loren provides tons of information on everything to see and do - you don't need a guidebook, just your notes from Loren! Ruth saved us from a ruined trip due to medication forgotten at home and sent us to the best snorkeling spots. So easy and relaxing to stay here. Don't need a thing except your swimsuit. Looking forward to our return next year unless all the people reading this have already booked this lovely spot.
