About the property

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, 4.5 bathroom villa with a pool, bikes and every luxury you can think of. Free land line to call home anytime. Flat screens and air condition in every bedroom, with a large TV in the grand living 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 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 returns year after year, and says each time, 'The house is better than ever!'

There are three large en-suite bedrooms, with a 4th bedroom on the 2nd floor of this 5,360 sq. ft. villa. Located on the upper level with a terrace, the floral style master bedroom is called Blue Lagoon. Also on the second floor is another soothing black and tan bedroom suite, Mapumalanga ('the setting sun'). The third spacious garden bedroom suite, Shangri-La is on the main level. The newly added tropical fourth bedroom has a queen bed and a shared bath. Each of the master suites have 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. All new Tommy Bahama furniture throughout. The rooftop terrace offers amazing vistas of the sea, the jungle and the lagoon. Enjoy an evening filled with stars from this top floor retreat.

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 open occasionally for guests during their stay. For a small additional fee and with some notice upon arrival, the caretaker can often arrange for a cook for a special meal, or a Mayan Tour. 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. 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.

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.

Could Not Have Been Better

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of everything at Casa Konomi. First off the driving directions I hand wrote them at the airport just in case our phones didn't work and even though they did end up working I used the written directions and drove right to the home.

As we came around the last turn we were greeted by a smiling Lucio and security Abram (sp) he did not have to come back but he did and showed us around a home he is clearly proud of, thank you so much Lucio for everything all of the locale information, showing us the best Cenotes (and how to say that word) for all of the best places to see the turtles and all of us did.

This place is magical and the Maya people could not be more helpful or friendly, the owners have the cream of the crop in all the staff.

Sylvia was a gem she was mad I washed some dishes as I am not used to being spoiled but that is what she does. Thank you for the most wonderful birthday dinner for our grandson my husband is still raving about the chile rellanos they were unbelievable and you took care of carnivore and our vegan half too. It was nice meeting your daughter Camilla.

I am counting the days until we return I don't care if the owners replace the golf cart we liked it was used because there are a lot of speed bumps. We rode the bikes, we sat up on the roof for sunrise, sunset, we had rain and sun but always returned to eat outside and swim in the wonderful pool under the palm trees in this little piece of paradise. No one in our group cares it is not right on the ocean you can walk in 2 directions and be at the lagoon or the bay in 5 minutes or less, we appreciated the privacy and shade.

Great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stated at this beautiful guest house for a full week and loved every day of it. The place is amazing, has every convenience and a very friendly and helpful staff. The location is great, right next to a great snorkeling park, beaches and delicious restaurants (Buena Vida!). It is also 15 to 30 minutes from all sorts of great spots without being in all the bustle of Playa del Carmen or Tulum. Akumal is a great little tourist town. Really good communication also made the stay easy and convenient. I highly recommend this rental.

Absolutely incredible!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous week at Casa Konomi. The House was beautiful, it’s kept in perfect condition. Lucia & Silvia are absolute treasures! It was the perfect spot for our family, the adults & kids all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We were so sad to leave. I would definitely come back!!

Beautiful house and great staff

  • 5 of 5

The house was even more spacious than the photos suggest. It was also immaculate. The kitchen was fully equipped and furniture was in excellent condition. The golf cart and cruiser bikes were a big plus for getting around locally. We enjoyed the pool and morning coffee on the rooftop deck, watching and listening to the birds in the neighborhood. Lucio and Sylvia were wonderful. Don't miss snorkeling in the lagoon just 2 blocks away. It was worth the $14 (US) admission charge. (I suggest going early in the day before water gets churned up and to avoid crowds.)

While I rate this property 5 stars for quality of the house and staff and timely response from owner when we had a problem (we couldn't light the oven our first night), there are some small things that could be improved.

First and foremost, the house really needs some detailed instructions. All we could find was a single laminated sheet with a few bullet points. That was somewhat helpful but nowhere near comprehensive. We were unable to figure out how to operate the big-screen TV and DVD player in the living room, which really needed instructions.

You can see from maps supplied by the rental agent that the casa is just a few blocks from the ocean. But the shore there is rocky, not a sandy swimming beach.

Also, in the interest of transparency, I was disappointed that we didn't learn about the expectations for tipping staff until after we'd booked and paid the rental fee. It was not a deal breaker, and the staff certainly deserved to be tipped. But I found it off-putting that this came up only after we'd booked. Also, the rental agent said there would be information on tipping at the casa, and we found none.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Casa Konomi. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and all the amenities that it has to offer. Tipping is standard and generally not a problem for guests to know the guidelines (located in the arrival documents and email after initial booking). It use to be posted by the desk at the house. We sincerely thank you for helping us see through the eyes of the guests. We will work with the owner to get some more specific information about tipping at the house too. We always love feedback like this so we can make each stay better. Let us help you again next time you are in Akumal! Caribbean Fantasy, Inc.

Eco adventure park, ticket includes all meals and drinks! 20 minutes from Casa Konomi!
Car: recommended

Casa Konomi is located in Akumal, a quaint resort of private residences in the popular Riviera Maya. 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

This is an 18 hole Golf Course designed by Robert Von Hagge and built amongst the lush foliage of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Playacar is about a 30 minute drive north of Akumal on the southern end of Playa del Carmen.
