Perfect Home for our trip!
We had an incredible time at this property. The check-in/out process was VERY easy, we arrived a little early and they were able to let us check-in early which we REALLY appreciated. The house is very comfortable, and the backyard is an oasis. During the day the beach chairs were a perfect spot to relax and the evenings were spent enjoying our time under the palapa. The yard is kept immaculate each day by Ismael and the house can be cleaned daily if you choose by his wife, Margherita, We enjoyed getting to know both of them very much, such a kind and helpful couple. The location is very easy walking distance to the Akumal beach along the sand (we quickly found out you are not allowed to walk along the sidewalks that go the length of the beach unless you’re staying at the respective resort along side it. You will be chased! Lol) The beach is a short and beautiful walk though so it didn’t matter too much. We quickly befriended a very reliable and helpful taxi driver (Armando) and spent the few dollars each day having him drive us to and from the other end of the beach to the shops, store, and restaurants. One thing to note, as far as we found, there is not a street connecting the area the villas are located directly to the main part of town so the only timely way to walk there is along the beach. That’s not a bad thing necessarily, but if traveling with someone who has difficulty walking in sand you will want to plan on using taxis or renting a car to get around. If we return to Akumal we will definitely try and stay at this property again, it truly is a gem.
Private, beautiful accommodations; wonderful people.
Anyone looking for a private, beautifully decorated, cozy beachfront home to vacation in need look no further as Isla Escape is the place to stay. My family of three adult couples feel so fortunate to have been able to stay at this truly lovely property. We were greeted with a smile by the groundskeeper, Ismael, and his wife Margherita even though we arrived quite early while they were busy cleaning. Each day they came and made the house and yard spotless. The property is bordered by a private home on either side but you’d never know it as we never heard a sound from either one and the palm trees and other vegetation keep it very private. The beach in front of the house is quite a bit lower than the level of the yard so when people (very few) walked past we couldn’t see them from the house. The home is beautifully built, nicely decorated, and clearly well taken care of. It was well stocked and even had liquor left by the guests before us. Although we didn’t see the sea turtles themselves, they were nesting up and down the beach in the evening during our stay, each nest carefully marked with a Do Not Disturb sign the next morning. Jacob, who owns the property, was a great guy and was very helpful and gracious, available at any time, but not intrusive in any way. The barbecue propane tank had been emptied by the previous renters and, at dinnertime, in just a few minutes Jacob had another full one brought to us. He also offers contact information to have a masseuse come and we had the most wonderful deep tissue massage under the palm trees. Truly a dream vacation in a pristine place. To top it all off, my daughter and her husband’s flight left later in the day than the rest of us and Jacob rearranged his schedule to drive them to the airport in Cancun. Wow, how incredibly thoughtful, thank you Jacob for being such a wonderful host!
My wife and I were in desperate need of a week's worth of getaway time and we immediately seized the opportunity to go back to Isla Escape where we enjoyed a 4-night stay two years ago. Nothing had changed, and that was perfectly fine--exactly what we were wanting and needing. Jacob was again most welcoming and enjoyable to interact with, as were his crew. We highly recommend Isla Escape for those who are wanting a vacation away from the many crowded resort areas along the coast.
Great family vacation spot
If you are considering this property I would highly receommend it. We stayed 7 days with our three kids and had a wonderful time. The property is advertised truthfully, its clean, comfortable, safe but mostly spectacular. The pictures don’t do it justice. Our kids range in age from 14, 11 and 8 and all of them are already begging to go back. Jacob is a wonderful host that anticipates your needs before you arrive. The location is perfect for cenotes, exploring ruins, snorkeling with turtles or visiting the money sanctuary. If you want a truly special vacation spot book this property without delay.
The house, gardens, sea views, privacy, outdoor sitting places, and tiled cooking unit were all a pleasure to behold and a delight to experience. Everything in the house was carefully and tastefully chosen, making it both comfortable and pleasureful. The housekeeping and grounds maintenace couple took excellent care of us and were delightful to converse with, as was Jacob, the owner. I highly recommend Casa Escape.
Being an avid swimmer, the one disappointment for me was easy access to deep water for swimming because of the extended coral reefs, which I found difficult to manage, being elderly.
Perfect location and host
Refreshing ocean breeze close to Akumal and restaurants. Regular house keeping and attention. Wonderful stay overall
