The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Akumal

We love to vacation on the Mayan Riviera; the sun, the white sand beaches, the food, and the Mayan people make this area remarkable. Our casita is 75 minutes from Cancun International Airport, 40 minutes from Playa del Carmen, and 10 minutes from Tulum. We are a 10 minute walk to Chemuyil which has all the ammenities, including great restaurants, a pizzeria, bakeries, grocery stores, clothing stores, and a fruit and vegetable market.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy our time outdoors as much as we can.There is swimming, body board surfing, and beachcombing at our local beach, or swimming with the turtles in Akamal. We love to explore the Mayan ruins and enjoyed climbing the pyramid at Coba ..... that was exhilarating my wife says.

Family with small kids loved the place.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 2 weeks as a family of 6 (Kids 4, 6, 9, parents and grandma) and had a great time. I would recommend it to a friend.

Great joy for kids was a transparent clear cenote just 40 yards (meters) from the house. It's free and there are another two free cenotes withing 2 minutes walk. We jumped in several times per day to cool off. Beautiful Beach is 15 minutes walking distance. After travelling around for 2 weeks, this beach was the best.

House is clean and nicely decorated in Mexican style. You can tell that the owners love the home. It has a character, it's not an anonymous rental. Fenced backyard is a great place to spend mornings and evenings. Seems that most homes around are owned by Canadian retirees, that are having great fun down there. 10 minutes walk takes you to Chemuyil, authentical Mexican village with restaurants, shops, friendly people and kids running around.

Communication with owners was great, responsive with no surprises. On site manager was responsive.

You will find that services in Mexico don't work as well as in US or Europe, but this house is managed with western culture and standards. You get what you are promised. So enjoy the laid back Mexican culture, but rely on this reliable accommodation.

Very cute house, unbeatable price!

  • 4 of 5
We spent one week (two adults, one 7 years old child and one baby) in this very nice little house. The house is very functional, with everything to cook and make delicious fruit juices, very good beds, and also it was cool to have a CD player. Ideally located to visit Tulum, Akumal, Xcacel, etc. Chemuyil village is just may be 2km away, has everything you need, and a nice atmosphere. The only less good point is that the main road is not very far so it is not a totally quiet place. Of course, the price is unbeatable!
Importantly, Brenda was very helpful all along.
I recommend this house!

Beach home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (two adults + two kids ages 2 and 4) just got back from a wonderful vacation at casita Alux. Having traveled extensively in Mexico before, we particularly enjoyed the authentic atmosphere of the nearby Chemuyil pueblo (walking around at night and nibbling at the diferent food stands, buying fruits and veggies at the weekly market, enjoying tasty meals at the two local restaurants...) and the unspoiled serenity of playa Xcacel (the soft sand, friendly lizards and cenote were a great hit with the kids!). We also appreciated the variety of activities available in the aera (beaches, snorkelling, villages, adventure parks, archeological sites) which made everyday a new adventure. The house was well-maintained and the amenities sufficient to satisfy our family's needs. More importantly, we greatly appreciated the warmth and kindness expressed by our hosts in all of our exchanges. Their energy impregnates casita Alux and has contributed to our positive experience. We would gladly return for another vacation and would recomand this rental to anyone looking for a “beach home away from home” for a quiet, low-key vacation.

Best Secret Location for Authentic Mexican Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My favorite beaches are on the Caribbean Ocean with cool coral sand beaches, you can walk on for miles. We stayed in Chan Chemuyil at the property mentioned above and enjoyed the privacy of having our own place to invite family or friends to stay. The house with two bedrooms was large enough for our son, daughter in law and grandaughter to stay with us for 2 of the 4 weeks of our vacation. We routinely visited the Turtle Sanctuary Beach across the highway with a packed picnic lunch and for a change, went to Playa Akumal to snorkel and swim with the turtles in the protected bay. A short walk up the road leads to the quaint and authentic Mexican village of Chemuyil where we ate amazing fresh food at some of the local restaurants there. We rented a car near the airport in Cancun, drove to the house and found the place without difficulty. The house was readied for our arrival with fans on, hot water and a wealth of information to discover and plan out events for our entire stay. The amenities were superb, we shopped in the local village on market day and at the large grocery stores in either Tulum or Playa Del Carmen, cooked many great meals and ate out at different restaurants for reasonable prices. I would recommend this property to any of my family or friends as it was a very affordable, luxury vacation where we felt comfortable and safe. I hope to return to this haven of unspoiled paradise for many years to come, so I can experience the treasures of Mexico before it becomes overdeveloped.
