Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Everyone who has been a guest at Solymar has absolutely loved it!! Please be sure to look at all of the wonderful reviews...we are sure that you will love it too!

The main villa is 3 bedrooms/3.5 baths (2 king beds, 2 twin beds) with a max. occupancy of 6. The guesthouse (or 'casita') has one guest apartment with a king bed, bathroom and kitchen which sleeps 2. (See rates)

A few great amenities that we've included in the base prices are the use of our 4 seater golf cart (great to have in Akumal and a $400 value) and the use of the second apartment in the guest house which is set up as an exercise room/office (it has a treadmill and wireless connection).

Other features:

*great location (walking distance to Akumal bay, but you can use the golf cart too!)

*beautifully furnished, very comfortable villa

*on one of the largest lots in Akumal (great privacy)

*the previous owners actually lived in Solymar for 5 years so it has a complete inventory of everything you need. It’s not your typical rental property lacking everything like most rentals.

*Solymar is beautifully furnished. No concrete slab beds with hotel quality mattresses on them. These beds were shipped from Florida with wonderful mattresses, quality sheets and pillows. Lots of good reading lamps too!

*The housekeeper, Maria, will be a real asset to your vacation. She not only does the cleaning 6 days a week but she can also cook wonderful meals for you too upon request. We also have a wonderful masseuse who can come to the villa - he does massages on the second floor balcony overlooking the Caribbean. There is also a wonderful spa in Akumal if you'd like a manicure/pedicure, facial, etc. You're on vacation...pamper yourself!

*The gardener, Luis, will take care of any maintenance needs as well as wash your rental car every day. He is also very good at cutting open coconuts for you!

*We have a wonderful manager who is 5 minutes away if you need anything.

We are keeping the base prices the same for 2014 and will continue to take 40% off of the stated prices (even Christmas and New Years weeks). A VERY good deal for a villa like Solymar! Take advantage of it while it lasts!

You will love Solymar! The pool is right on the ocean and the villa is on a large, very private lot with beautiful furnishings. We have wireless internet and tons of movies to watch at Solymar. We have just added a new amenity which is an office/exercise room. It has a treadmill and wireless internet for the person who wants to stay in touch or conduct business from Mexico. This is included with the rental of the villa. This room also has a full kitchen and full bath.

I guarantee you that you will sleep like a baby with the ocean waves crashing on the shore at night. Open the windows in your bedroom and let the breeze blow in. It's a great experience!

Akumal is located just one hour and ten minutes south of Cancun on the Mexican Caribbean coastline of the Yucatan Peninsula. It has long been a secret getaway, discovered only by those who dared to travel down the coastline in search of adventure. Once discovered, many travelers found themselves returning to Akumal year after year.

Akumal Bay is a beautiful sugary white sand beach at the heart of Akumal. It is Akumal's public beach area and offers dining, cocktails, diving, swimming and snorkeling. Many of Akumal's amenities are located on Akumal Bay, including restaurants and beach bar, pizzeria and ice cream shop, the bakery, grocery store, dive shops and a few small boutiques with native goods from Mexico and Central America.

All rooms in the villa - upstairs and down - enjoy an ocean view and air conditioning. The downstairs includes a large living room with cozy, comfortable and elegant furniture. After a day of sunshine you can look forward to watching television or a good movie while someone else curls up with a good book. There are many couches, chairs, ceiling fans, a bar and a credenza filled with games. Also downstairs, the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need and the dining room displays a gorgeous table with a marble column base, glass top and elegant Tommy Bahama chairs for a Caribbean flair. There are also dining tables pool side and garden side so you have many choices depending on your mood. Steaks on the grill, a Mexican meal prepared by the cook, or a picnic by the swimming pool: just make sure you have an icy cold drink in hand!

All three bedrooms in the main house are the same size and have dressing rooms and beautiful bathrooms. The bedroom downstairs has a King-size bed and is called the 'Oriental Room' because of the red silk furnishings and antique bronze Buddhas from Japan. The two upstairs bedrooms both have stunning illuminated brick domed ceilings and are separated by a large private outdoor balcony which is terrific for shade or sun; lying in a hammock or getting an all over tan. The views from Solymar are gorgeous, the elegant and unusual half-moon swimming pool with a backdrop of coral reef, water geysers shooting up into the air and boats sailing by in the ocean. A panoramic view of the aquamarine Caribbean Sea!

Also on the property is an air conditioned guest house or 'casita'. It is located as a second floor over the large two car garage on one side and, unique for Mexico, a large laundry/storage room with bath for the maid and gardener on the other side. The second floor has a beautiful view of the surrounding gardens and birds. There are two apartments and the first one is called the 'Jungle Room' because of the views and furnishings which include lots of wicker furniture and monkey fabrics! It has a King-size bed, sitting area with TV and movies, kitchen and bathroom. The second apartment is the exercise/office room previously mentioned.

Solymar is an experience you should not miss. Elegance and comfort mixed with a Caribbean adventure - a great place to sit back, relax and enjoy!

The owners of Villa Solymar, Denny and Diane Mahan, have been living on the Mexican Caribbean coast since the mid 80’s, long before it was called the Riviera Maya. They have traveled all over Mexico since the early 70’s and the Riviera Maya, especially the Akumal area, is by far their favorite spot. It is a safe, adventuresome and wonderful place to live or vacation. They have bought, sold and built many villas in the Akumal area. The owners currently use the villa themselves in the winters and rent the villa the balance of the year while they spend time at their home on Lake Oconee in Georgia near their children, grandchildren and other family who live in the area.

Kelly Flynn purchased this villa in 2006

We have always loved Mexico and the Mayan Riviera especially - such a beautiful place and wonderful people! There are so many great things to do nearby as well so while Akumal itself is quiet and tranquil (which we love), there is a lot to do a short drive away.

We love the villa for its size (not too big, not too small) and the fact that there is a guest house which we have used as an office and extra guest room. So now you can rent Solymar with three bedrooms/3.5 baths or you can also rent the guest house bedroom making sleeping arrangements for 8 people total. Also, the view with the crescent shaped pool overlooking the Caribbean is just incredible ... a true paradise!

Beautiful House

We had a wonderful visit at Villa Solymar. The house is beautiful and very well appointed. The grounds are well manicured. We travelled with 6 adults and 2 toddlers. Kelly arranged for us to have two cribs, which work perfectly for our family to just stay in the main house. The pool was a big hit…very refreshing. The steps in the pool were perfect for the children to play on. The kitchen was well equipped. We cooked in several meals and had Maria cook for us two nights. The meals were delicious. The golf cart was very useful to have for trips into town, though it is only a brief walk. Akumal has several restaurants and a few shops for necessities and souvenirs. We found the prices in town to be a bit more expensive than the last time we visited Akumal 3 yrs ago. If you plan to cook in, we would recommend shopping at Walmart, Sam's or the other bigger markets. We travelled without a car this visit. We arranged transportation ahead of time from the airport to Villa Solymar. We took the local transportation, a collectivo (shuttle van) from the main highway to Playa del Carmen for an outing. The collectivos also travel to Tulum, though we did not make that trip this time. We would highly recommend this house as it is very comfortable, convenient and the staff very helpful.

My family and I have stayed in 15+ Homeaway and VRBO rental properties in the last few years and Villa Solymar was definitely up there with the best ones. From the initial contact Kelly, the manager, was super prompt and very easy to work with. She gave us tons of information about the house and area ahead of time and answered all our questions. We were 4 adults (2 of whom stayed in the casita) and 3 children ages 2-7. The house worked perfectly for us. The master bedroom was on the ground floor with the kitchen, family area and access to the pool. The other two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms were upstairs and a bit separate from the main living area. This was great for us because we could get the kids to bed and the adults could hang out and not worry about waking them up. If you are concerned about the kids being far away this might not be the best option, but you can always bring a baby monitor like we did. All the beds were comfortable and the A/C fans kept us cool. The kitchen was well decked out and it was easy to cook for a group. We had Maria (the housekeeper) cook for us one night and it was a delicious meal. We also had Chef Daveed (local chef service who comes to your house) cook one night. His meal was the best we had anywhere in Akumal and such a better value! I highly recommend using both Maria and Chef Daveed to cook for you. Maria and the gardener were very helpful and took care of everything immediately. We had a leaky shower head and it was fixed before we knew it. The local manager also checked in on us the first day of our arrival. The pool and outside seating were great though in the winter it was shady after about 2 pm so only the kids were brave enough to get in the pool! The house was in excellent condition and very clean. We used the golf cart every day to go to the beach or to the restaurants though you could easily have walked as well. Overall I have only good things to say about the house and management. The only drawback was that we found Akumal to be a bit crowded during this holiday period. We were there from Dec 30 through Jan 3. In retrospect I would go back another time of the year when things aren't so pricy and crowded.

Not sure where to start or end with a review on this property. From pulling into the driveway and seeing the front entrance to opening the door and the gorgeous views from all levels of the house we were amazed. There is nothing that you will need from the fully stocked kitchen and the awesome housekeeper and gardener. The beds and furniture were comfortable. The golf cart is a great extra, we used it for dinner and the beach. The only negative was we had to leave, can't wait to return.

Best Villa Rental in Akumal!

We've been traveling to Akumal for over 20 years and have rented a number of different properties. By far, this is our most favorite home to rent in all of Akumal. It's now become part of us and wish we didn't have to leave to head back to the states. We''ve rented the house for the past three years and are looking to go back next year. From the moment we contacted the rent the house, Kelly Flynn was so fantastic in terms of the rental process and answering any questions we had. Also, the house itself is unbelievable. So comfortable and more than we ever expected. Also, the house staff (Nidia and Luis) are both so welcoming and do such a great job taking care of us and the house. The location is fantastic. Just a 5 minute walk to town and 5 minute walk to La Buena Vida. Having the golf cart is a bonus and we always rent a few bikes too. We can't say enough about our experience. You can't go wrong renting this property.

Amazing Family Holiday

We just got back from a two week stay in solymar. It was unbelievable! The house is great an the kids swam everyday in the pool! The golf cart was so nice to have and we used it every single day. Akumal beach is one of the nicest beaches I've ever been to and it was two minutes away! We snorkelled with the turtles every morning!
It is hard to get back into the swing of things when you are used to someone cleaning as Nidia and Louis were wonderful. All our fruit cut up and fresh coconuts, laundry done...paradise.
Groceries were close in Tulum or Playa del Carmen. We used Tulum and spent the day in the town shopping and we loved it there too!
Overall a wonderful experience and can't wait to return!
