About the property

5 luxury bedroom suites, 5 1/2 baths, jacuzzi and private pool on the beach

Luxury villa on an exclusive and secluded ocean-front point, walking distance to the town of Akumal

Swimming pool – infinity-edge forty feet long with its eight person high-jet whirlpool Jacuzzi.

Five Large Bedroom suites with oversized marble bathrooms, four bedrooms with spectacular Ocean Views.

Esprit del Mar is a modern Mayan Masterpiece of stunning architectural design. This villa offers five bedrooms of details seldom seen in any Beach house. Located after the development of Akumal Sur, yet still close enough to walk into the town of Akumal, this unique Villa offers style, seclusion and beach privacy. Architect Udi Saly and designer Liz Conover completed this Villa in 2009 in a new private association with no condominiums in site and seven other villas on a private street.

Ultimate Luxury in private Punta Sur, Space, Seclusion and Services - Situated high on the 18 foot coral dune, Esprit del Mar commands breathtaking views of the Sea. This unique natural environmental area pulsates with sea life. Access to the sea directly from the villa, and a sandy beach to the right is 1,000 feet from your door. The large 10,500 square feet of Living space is enhanced with roof-covered outdoor patios that are linked to the 45 foot long mosaic tiled Pool. The pool boasts a super sized Jacuzzi tub which seats 8 people to view the ocean. Entering the large arched doorway of Esprit del Mar one is awed by the majestic circular stairwell and the 30 foot glass wall framing the ocean. Esprit del Mar has an oversized Living Room, a candle-filled Dining Room and a large black-granite state of the art Kitchen with a professional oven. All doors open up to the patios and swimming pool for perfect indoor-outdoor living.

Bedrooms Designed to Sleep with Doors Open to the Sea - The spacious Master Bedroom Suite is 1,400 square feet and occupies an entire wing of the villa. The King Size bed is framed with a rare fossilized hardwood tree root from the Yucatan jungle. The 360 square foot bathroom is clad floor to ceiling in Mexican Crema-Maya marble. The Caribbean Suite has a King-sized bed directly facing the Caribbean Sea through 9’ wide glass doors. The marble-clad bathroom has a hand-made egg-shaped tub offering stunning views of the Caribbean while you shower or bathe. The large private balconies each have hardwood loungers and a seating area. Jungle Camp Suite – offers a playful accommodation in four beds for six children or four adults. Naturally harvested tree trunks adorn the four beds in this large room with its own large bathroom with double waterfall showerheads. A fifth bedroom is an oversized garden suite with a separate entrance. All bedrooms are air-conditioned.

The English-speaking concierge greets all guests and meets with them daily. A full-time staff lives on premises in a separate Casita to provide villa services. Weekly rental includes welcome beverages; complimentary daily breakfast and complimentary massages at the roof palapa. Additionally, pre-stocking of groceries; full chef services; private yoga teacher, golf, tennis and other activities can be coordinated and are available upon request.

Relax in complete privacy… or swim in the ocean right in front of the villa

The house and location were wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family vacation at the house (all twelve of us, including five kids). The setting is lovely, the house is open and airy, and the staff cooked us wonderful meals. The owners were staying nearby and were both extremely gracious hosts and a fantastic resource for information on what to do in the area.

Glorious vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of twelve, with ages ranging from 10 to 85, and every one of us had a perfectly wonderful time -- not always the case. There were plenty of beaches and snorkeling sites nearby for the young, and the house and surroundings were so delightful that the older members of the family were delighted to stay at home and enjoy them. We had planned to do much of the cooking ourselves, but found the chef so easy to work with and his meals so delicious that we turned it all over to him, making it a perfect vacation.

Among the many special attractions nearby, we chose (somewhat blindly) Xcel, which focuses on natural rather than cultural features, and it was a huge success, popular with all ages.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion (grandparents, 3 families, 5 teenagers) at the villa and it worked out perfectly. The villa itself is spectacular, clean, well maintained and in a great location. The owner is very accommodating, helpful, and generally a pleasure to work with. The staff, too, is outstanding. The guacamole and pico de gallo that they prepare daily is a delicious. We thought we'd do a bunch of cooking ourselves, but the house chef is so good, we ended up just using his services most days. We couldn't have been happier with how it all worked out.

FANTASTIC - Exquisite escape from reality

  • 5 of 5

My second time returning to this amazing big villa, Esprit del Mar in Akumal-Tulum, Mexico

This Villa is better than the photos and the large bedrooms worked perfectly for our group of friends. The architecture & decor is exquisite.

We were a group of women wanting a "staycation" and that is exactly what we got: professional Massages, Chef prepared meals and a Van and driver to take us to Tulum for the day.

The location in Punta Sur makes this ocean front property ideal for relaxing as it is a private street with only big villas and no hotels and crowds of people in sight.

I could sleep in my King bed with the sliding doors open to the sound of waves which was heavenly. The weather was perfect and we snorkeled in Akumal.

The staff cleaned the Villa and the pool daily and surprised us by preparing Salsa and Guacomole with chips for us in the afternoons as a snack.

We went to Yoga one day in Akumal and to Xel Ha water park, 10 minutes away and so much fun!

I would highly recommend this Villa for a family reunion and a girls getaway. Giving it 5 stars!

Beyond Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I could have been more happy with this home. The property was immaculate and even more impressive in person than in the pictures. The owners were a pleasure and easy to work with. The staff was extremely sweet, accommodating and helpful. The location is truly perfect….close the Akumal and Tulum, where there are many great recreation and dining options. We really could not have asked for a better experience!

Owner's Response: I know that the guest means "could NOT have been more happy" as the rest of the testimonial suggests. We have been providing luxury services to guests of Esprit del Mar and our other villas for almost 15 years now. We are committed to have guests like this experience OUR Riviera Maya. Esprit del Mar is a RARITY among rental homes. We are thrilled to get such feedback and will maintain this standard for years to come and many more guests to enjoy.
