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 Casa Gray 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 an equipped 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 property managers, Rhett and Eddie are experts in the area, and can provide useful information on activities, restaurants and turtle watching. In addition, if you have any issues while you are vacationing at Casa Grey, they 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 Casa Grey 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..

We offer additional discounts for stays of 7 nights or more.

Currently we can accept payment by credit card, personal check, or wire transfer to a US bank account.

About Akumal Villas

This is a family vacation villa owned by the Grays. A dream come true. 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 waking up feeling the greatness of nature.

Akumal Villas purchased this villa in 1986

Why Akumal Villas chose Akumal

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.

What makes this villa unique

We are slightly off the beaten track but still fairly close to 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely vacation at Villa Italiano again this year. Such a perfect location, charming and hospitable home and you have added those perfect touches that make a stay comfortable. Bijan is a conscientious manager and took excellent care of us.

Just How A Vacation Should Be

  • 5 of 5
First, off, my wife's family is from Mérida, Yucatán, so going to the Riviera Maya is not really an adventure, any more than is visiting our Colorado Rockies from Denver. What we were looking for was a relaxing getaway. However, we had seven members of our family in our group, covering three generations, which can make relaxing difficult. We found Villa Italiano to be a delightful no-hassles alternative to the all-inclusive scene, at 1/3 the cost. It is large enough that the seven of us weren't falling all over each other, and were able to relax and enjoy. The location put us close enough to Tulum and Puerto Aventuras that visiting attractions and making grocery runs was no big deal. Akumal is withing hiking distance for those who want to enjoy the restaurants and attractions (wear shoes, there is some rock scrambling involved). We spent most of our time taking in the sun and the surf. Swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking were daily activities (well, relaxing with a cold one and a good book was up there, too). The beautiful property is clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked with all of the necessities for cooking and serving.

As to attractions, I visited the Tulum ruins when Playa del Carmen was a fishing village and the Mayan Riviera was virgin beach. Otherwise, that's a must-do--but in the morning before the heat and tourists arrive. Xel-Ha has been Disneyfied and priced to the point of ridiculousness. Yal-Ku Lagoon in Akumal is a much better choice. Also the Xel-Ha archaeological site is very close by. It is not a major site like Chichen-Itza or even Tulum, but it is interesting (if you are into Mayan culture), and rarely visited (we were the only party on site). The site boasts two cenotes for those who are inclined to take a swim and cool off--no extra charfe.

So, if you want a frenetic vacation activity with all the food and drink you can possibly stomach, and all the activities you can cram into the time available, go somewhere else. If your idea of a vacation is kicking back, relaxing, and enjoying the ambiance of one of the most beautiful stretches of beach on the planet, this is a good place to do it. Highly recommended, and we will likely return.

I cannot even put into words how wonderful a vacation we had here. The house was perfect for our group of three couples. The back door opens to white sand and beautiful clear blue water. The location is perfect as we were close to a nearby beach bar and two restaurants and just a short walk away to the major road. We alternated between being beach bums and taking the collectivos into nearby cities. It is very quiet and private which we loved. The house was extremely comfortable. Thank you for a vacation we will never forget!

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 :-)
