Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 4.5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12

Does the economy have you thinking about postponing your vacation? Well, wait no more! We’re offering the most affordable vacation villa there is in beautiful Akumal: Casa Konomi! This is a 5300' 4 bedroom, (the 4th bedroom was just added in the fall of 2014) 4.5 bathroom villa with a pool, bikes and every luxury you can think of. Free land line to call home anytime. Flat screens in every room. Private grounds and pool. Your own staff. Surround sound inside and out.

Imagine being enveloped in the hammock, you close your eyes & you breathe in the scent of the bougainvillea. Your ears drink in the sound of the rippling tide gently lapping over the rocks of Yalku Lagoon & the songs of native jungle birds in the surrounding gardens. You feel the warm breeze from the beach at Half Moon Bay flow over you like an ocean wave. You take a refreshing sip of your ice-cold beverage & realize that you’re staying in your own personal paradise.

Stay at Casa Konomi, and you'll find out it is one of the nicest appointed homes, yet, offered at one of the lowest rates you will find in the area for an Akumal villa.

It is almost impossible to contemplate how deliriously wonderful it is to stay in Casa Konomi, a luxurious 5300' 4 bedroom 4.5 bath villa. It is it's own vacation resort in the heart of Akumal, MX. Whatever your taste, this home is the kind of place where you will find yourself drawn to stay at the villa during the day rather than venturing out from your own personal paradise. This is Mexico yet it feels like home, but better.

Casa Konomi is conveniently situated between Half Moon Bay and Yalku Lagoon. It is an easy walk to the sandy beach, or the lagoon, both are prime for snorkeling. Unique to this villa, the owner provides a complimentary golf cart (older, being replaced in 2018) and a handful of basic bikes to help make getting around Akumal easy and quick. The location gives guests the unusual opportunity to be secluded by lush gardens, creating a private escape unlike any other rental home in the area. Every minute of the day is spent with the tranquil sound of breaking waves from the ocean waters surrounding the peninsula the home sits on. The owners like to update it every year, so many guests return time after time as they know the villa improves with age! The Mercure party returned in February and said 'The house is better than ever!'

There are three large en-suite bedrooms, with a 4th bedroom just added in the fall of 2015 with shared bath, in this 5,360 sq. ft. villa. Located on the second floor, the floral style master bedroom suite is called Blue Lagoon. Also on the second floor is another bedroom suite, Mapumalanga ('the setting sun') with a delightful safari theme. The third spacious garden bedroom suite, Shangri-La (it can be rented alone as a 'bungalow' in the low seasons) is on the main level. The newly added fourth bedroom has a Queen bed. Every room has two entrances, one leading to a veranda, another to the inside of the villa.

Casa Konomi has amazing attention to detail, from the monkeys carved into the building's decorative architecture, to the many stained glass windows featured throughout the house. The living room and dining room have been carefully thought out with no cost spared for aesthetic themes.The newly tiled rooftop terrace offers amazing vistas of the sea, the jungle and the lagoon. Enjoy an evening filled with stars from this top floor retreat in the sun warmed water of the jacuzzi ....

Everything needed for a perfect stay is on hand and the staff is at your service to help. Quite unusual to rental homes, there is a fully equipped laundry room with a washer, dryer and plenty of cleaning products. For a small additional fee and with some notice, the maid will gladly do laundry for guests or the caretaker can arrange for a cook. Leave the bulky beach towels at home, Casa Konomi will provide as many beach towels as needed, as well as coolers, hats and more. The home is equipped with a safe for valuables.

Every bedroom has air conditioning as well as fans. Each has a large walk in closet. The bathrooms are spacious and spectacular. Rare to the area, bedrooms have soft carpeted floors. The spacious kitchen is equipped with two refrigerators, a state of the art stove, a full size microwave, a gourmet coffee machine and more. There is nothing this kitchen does not provide. Four flat screen TVs give choices to guests, one in the living room and one in each bedroom. There are plenty of DVDs, CDs and games for your enjoyment, as well as DISH TV if all you want is the surround sound of music playing while you fall asleep beside the pool. Wireless internet is available in Casa Konomi so please remember to bring your laptop so you can send home photos daily to make friends and family green with envy. The owner offers free calling for their guests to the US and Canada.

Casa Konomi is going green too! Eco friendly light bulbs have been installed throughout the villa. Six all terrain bikes are on hand for those wishing to ride around Akumal. Not the biking type? No worries,an electric golf cart has been provided for your stay, perfect for trips to the lagoon, the bays, dinner out, or Chomak Market.

The pool is newly refurbished. The BBQ is built in. Even the plumbing is all new. The house is even better than before and it was perfect to begin with.

The staff is there to take care of you, and can also be hired to cook simple meals for you, or provide personal laundry for a per load fee. The grounds are impeccable. Outdoor covered dining next to the cascading waterfall into the lit pool at night makes for many memorable meals when dining in. This villa is a Caribbean Fantasy return client favorite. Feel secure as there in a full time security guard on staff.

Look no further, there is nowhere else where you will feel the life being breathed back into you like at Casa Konomi. This is a place for rest and relaxation, a resort in itself, an oasis in paradise.

About Jill

A family in love with Akumal!

Jill purchased this villa in 2000

Why Jill chose Quintana Roo

The locals are so warm and friendly, and we fell in love with the villa as it offered so many more extras than the others we knew about. Every year, we fall in love with it again, and add new wonderful things to make it better and better!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just spent 7 days at this beautiful "compound" and everything was absolutely wonderful - the pictures do not do it justice. We came as a group of 9 with the youngest at 9 and the oldest at 72. We had 3 young girls on the trip and we always felt safe. We walked down the street one evening for dinner and often took the gold cart to dinner or the beach. The snorkeling was great with multiple turtle encounters on every trip. We also visited Cabo, Xcaret, Tulum, and Puerto Adventura for the Dolphin Discovery. All three generations will remember this fantastic vacation/experience for the rest of our lives.

Our favorite home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I have been fortunate enough to experience "living the dream" at Casa Konomi on multiple occasions. Every detail is thought out by the owners, who are professional property managers in Maryland. They KNOW their business and they anticipate EVERY item that a guest might need or want. Bikes to ride? Check. Golf cart to get around Akumal (and save lots of money on rental car!)? Check. On site manager that speaks English and will attend to YOUR every need? Check. A smiling, friendly housekeeper who is immaculate in her attention to detail? Check. This is The Ultimate Mexican Vacation Experience - pool with waterfall, loungers, plush beach towels, outdoor living area - you won't even WANT to use the house! - state of the art BBQ grill, fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances - including a six burner gas stove with glass cover so no accidents with the little ones! If we could live here, we would!The hosts are friendly, knowledgeable & always helpful with information, directions, suggestions & can even help put together an itinerary for you & schedule day trips & tour guides. But - this is not just a business to them - this is their HOME & the love & pride that they take in it shows in EVERY room. Each year when they visit, they update & often remodel almost every room in the house - so everything is NEW, FRESH and MODERN. They spare no expense for their guests' comfort & have included everything to make them comfortable & to feel at home. You will never want to leave! All of the bedrooms have plush, comfortable pillow top mattresses that are NEW & flat screen TVs, & 3 of the 4 have ensuite bathrooms. A short walk away is Que Onda restaurant - La Buena Vida is easy to get to by foot, bike or golf cart & "downtown" Akumal is easily accessible by golf carts or bikes, or about a mile walk for those that are more adventurous. Yalku Lagoon is right around the corner & Half Moon Bay can be viewed from the rooftop deck area. This home is one that you will dream about long after your vacation has ended & you will be counting down the days until you return. The owners are friends with many of the locals that live in the neighborhood, so don't be surprised to be stopped by some of them while they are walking their dogs & welcomed warmly - they recognize the golf cart with its distinguishable fabric seats that match the patio furniture! The owners are also animal lovers & help area rescue groups. :) Once you visit here, it becomes a part of you.

A single word...REMARKABLE

  • 5 of 5

We were three generations, twelve people in all, and Casa Konomi gracefully absorbed us with beauty and ease. This was our second stay at this very special home in this very special region of Mexico. As with our first stay, Lucio made us feel right at home, and Silvia always kept the place sparking clean. The bicycles connected us to all the nearby sites and beaches, and the pool was both an oasis of serenity and a source of exercise. The value of what we as guests are offered is immediately apparent. We did a lot of research before deciding on Casa Konomi for both of our stays, and the owners truly have made it a wonderful deal for the traveler. The experience will remain with us always, as will the friendships that we made in Akumal, and this is what traveling offers us. We are very appreciative of what Casa Konomi has provided for the entire dozen of us. Sincerely, Sean Thomas Miller

An excellent vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Konomi is better than the description! The house is in a secluded, quiet area. All of the rooms are spacious and the roof terrace and garden/pool area are immensely enjoyable. The house comes with staff, a groundskeeper/manager and housekeeper who are very friendly and accomodating. Parking is easy and the available golf cart for guests makes short trips around the village more fun than riding around in a car.

Every aspect of our stay in Casa Konomi was pleasant and we enjoyed every amenity we could have wanted. If you plan to visit Akumal, give serious consideration to staying at Casa Konomi.

Akumal, which in Maya is 'The place of the turtles' is one of the most satisfying destinations on the azure Caribbean coastline. This villa is with-in walking distance of Yalku Lagoon, a natural aquarium which never fails to impress those interested in a fantastic snorkeling experience. Also with in a short walk from Casa Konomi are Half Moon Bay beach and Akumal Bay beach; both bays are filled with stunning coral reefs and sea life such as turtles, rays and schools of colorful fish. The drive to Cancun airport is an easy hour + drive, yet light years away from the hustle and bustle. Nearby are the busy towns of Playa Del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, and Tulum. It is only short scenic drive to the famous Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza. Dramatic eco-parks such as Xcaret and Xel-Ha are just a few minutes in either direction. Beaches near Casa Konomi are gorgeous and unique.

Other Activities: Scuba diving, snorkeling, jungle tours, ziplines, Mayan Ruins

Golf: There are several golf courses in the area. Located in Playa del Carmen is Playacar Club de Golf. This is an 18 hole Golf Course designed by Robert Von Hagge and built amongst the lush foliage of the Yucatan Peninsula. The Club provides a first class practice area, complete with a spectacular driving range, and a large putting green. Playacar is about a 30 minute drive north of Akumal on the southern end of Playa del Carmen.

Located just minutes south of Akumal is the newly built (2010) Gran Bahia Principe Golf Course. Designed by Robert Tent Jones, the club offers both an 18 hole par 72 layout as well as a 9 hole par 36 layout.
