There is a lovely tropical beach setting for this elegant second floor studio casita in gated South Akumal. This luxurious retreat is like no other - it has the feel of a villa, and offers privacy like no other casita in the Akumal area. This small gated community is private, well guarded and safe, with multi million dollar villas lining the beach. The casita is surrounded by lush green gardens, and just steps from a pristine quiet beach which will feel like your own. The open floor plan is elegant in decor, has central AC, a small balcony with a view of the beach flora, a nice living area, a majestic bed setting, a fully equipped kitchenette and a spacious marble bath.
It is perfect for honeymoons or just a romantic getaway. Lounge in the dramatic and comfortable king size bed (with the highest end mattress available in a rental), or on the built in couch watching satellite TV. The quality of the amenities, art, design and the decor of this casita are unparalleled in this small rental - making it a great place for particular guests looking for a first class smaller vacation home. Just steps away (you can hear the waves hit the breakers from the casita), is the beach, the path to it is lined by grand sea grape trees, which make great private and shady retreats from the warm tropical sun. The protected bay offers excellent snorkeling, swimming and kayaking.
The casita comes with beach towels, some snorkel equipment, a 2 person kayak, padded beach loungers, hammocks and Satellite TV/DVD and Wi-Fi Internet. Enjoy a late night stroll down the quiet beach under the moon lit sky after preparing dinner on the gas grill under the palms. May through September you may experience the wonder of sea turtles nesting, they’ve come to these beaches from beginning of time.
The casita sits just to the west of the main villa, which is not rented out. Guests will get the opportunity to meet the owner, who has a reputation for being a delightful hostess.
This is a charming studio condo, a treasure by the sea.
My wife & I spent 18 wonderful days in Gabriella's casita in Akumal Sur in Jan.2015. I am an avid snorkeler and enjoyed enormously snorkeling in the bay & on the reef in front of the casita as well as in Akumal Bay (with turtles & rays), in the Lagoon at Yal Ku (with myriads of tropical fish), and in the various cenotes in the area (especially Sac Actun, with its caverns of stalactites & stalagmites). The casita is far more luxurious than we're accustomed to but well worth it. If one needs the city experience, Playa is 30 minutes away and Tulum - considerably more laid back - is 15. Just looking at the photos makes us both ache with longing to return. Highly recommended: muchas gracias Gabriella!
I would highly recommend this casita; after a very long day of travel, Gabriella's directions to the gated casita were easy to find. Her place is very clean, daily maid service, fresh water. Gabriella is the perfect host, we had many enjoyable conversations under the straw patio with our adult beverages. We had our best meals in Tulum; El Camello, they have the best seafood around, and La Buena Vida for your adult beverages, cannot go wrong there! We snorkeled and kayaked almost everyday. My husband and I had the perfect romantic week, and would love to go back.
What a find! The casita is a delight, as is Gabriella. The casita is exactly as pictured--Gabriella has taste, I must say. The walk-in shower is perfect after a day at the beach. The sitting area is comfortable. The bed is a dream. The kitchen has all you will need. You can snorkel right outside the casita or go down the beach to Akumal north. Be sure to check out Ya-Kul for excellent snorkeling. Eat at La Lunita. It's definitely the best restaurant in the area. Akumal Sur, where the casita is located, is much quieter than Akumal north. We loved the casita and will be back! P.S. Be sure to say hello to Pantera, Gabriella's dog.
"This is a lovely place to relax at. The casita is beautiful and clean with daily maid service. Gabriella is a wonderful host and very helpful with local knowledge and restaurant suggestions. The beach is very private and with comfortable loungers. I snorkelled out to the reef from our beach. Akumal and Tulum are the closest towns and we had a wonderful birthday meal at Citle in Tulum. If you like peace and quiet, this is for you"
We had a wonderful stay in the casita for a week. The accommodation was great and the host Gabriella really does an amazing job making you feel comfortable. The casita and property is very clean and tightly. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place in Akumal. It is only a 10 or 15 minute walk on the beach into town. The beach in front of the casita is nice and quiet with great swimming. We look forward to a return trip to Gabriella's Casita. Happy Travels!
Gabriella, your a delight! Thank you for your warm welcome, your help and this wonderful opportunity. I hope to return next year!
I enjoyed every second of my thirteen day vacation. Gabriella's casita is more beautiful than the photos on her site, and situated in a quiet neighborhood on a beautiful palm lined beach. The water is stunning and the sand soft and white.
Enjoy a leisurely walk to the next cove for great food and some shopping. Everyone is very friendly!
Don't forget your camera and snorkel gear!
Warm regards, Gabriella!
