Perfect location for day trips to surrounding cenotes and ruins. Proximity to great restaurants- Think old Mexico- water- beach- hammocks ties to coconut trees- but with safe food options.
Great condo - lots of room- incredible views. Hans (owner) is the the best. Very responsive.
spacious condo with exceptional view!
Our group loved staying at Mi Casa Del Mar! You could not ask for a better view. The pool was lovely and the condo had all the necessities for our stay. The owners were very easy to get in touch with and they offered a lot of useful information on the area. We would stay here again. Thanks Hans!
Thanks ! So glad you had a great time !
Great location, close to stores, restaurants. Condo is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Seafront is rocky but is walkable and short walk to nice public beach.
Lovely condo, great owners
What a great place to stay! We truly enjoyed being away from the craziness of the all-inclusive resorts and touristy areas of the region. Akumal is a nice little town with a laid-back feel.
The owners started out by providing excellent communication with some the best documents on the area and suggestions that I've ever been provided by an owner. This was especially helpful since we had never visited the area. At the same time, a few of the items were a bit older (which they admitted) so a couple of documents weren't as helpful. They did have an updated doc with more recent tips that were excellent though so that made up for the older info in others. The maps and suggested places to visit were spot on.
As for the unit and location, the staff onsite were friendly, helpful and informative, giving us ideas and being flexible about cleaning and giving us places to visit! The location is in excellent proximity to La Buena Vida--a great restaurant/bar only 10 minute walk away and the other direction is an easy walk to the small town--which has a few other great places to eat and a nice beach.
One note with regards to the condo location--you can see beautiful views--sunrise especially--but the pool is the only place to go in water right outside the condo. Akumal Bay and the sandy swimming beach is a close walk or short drive but the area right on the other side of the pool at the condo is more for viewing and not sitting on the beach since it is very rocky and has lots of waves. But that also means you don't have tons of tourists right outside walking by your place!
The condo itself has great amenities, comfy beds and almost everything you could think of! Although the TV is on the smaller side we were there to enjoy the beach and Mexico and had no trouble when we did watch a movie one night. The wifi was available but kept kicking me off for some reason--it could have been my phone though!
One of the best things about the rental was the excellent communication from the owners. All of their recommendations were spot on, they were extremely helpful and even when we ended up keeping one of their keys by accident, they were understanding and let us mail it back to them! I would highly recommend this unit--it was well-maintained and completely worth it!
Thank you for your thorough review ! We will be sure to update some of our older information on the "things to do and see" document soon !
We loved out stay in our clean, spacious condo. The view of the pool and ocean were spectacularly beautiful and we were able to sit on the patio and enjoy a wolf moon too. Very relaxing, quiet environment. Highly recommend it. Great access to Akumal beach, 5 min walk, swam with a turtle. Also to Half Moon bay and Yal Ku for snorkeling where we saw lots of fish. Hans was extremely helpful in providing info on things to do.
We're happy you had a great time ! Thanks for the wonderful review.
An easy one-hour drive south of the Cancun airport will get you to one of the world's most beautiful vacation locations in Akumal. Mi Casa del Mar is ideally located between two near-by beaches: Akumal Bay - a swimming beach with beautiful soft, white sand near the town of Akumal with great restaurants, food stores and cute little shops, - and Half Moon Bay, a snorkeling bay with coral reefs, a great beach restaurant, and dive shop. Akumal is a quiet retreat located in the Mayan Riviera and is famous for snorkeling (Yal Ku Lagoon), excellent scuba diving and many other activities. An easy drive takes you to many fabulous beaches, eco water parks Xel Ha and Xcaret, and breath-taking cenotes. Akumal has ideal proximity to the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba, Ek Balaam and Chitzenitza.. The area is ecologically protected and famous for its sea turtle nesting grounds (Akumal means 'place of the turtle'). Internet is available in our beautiful building.
Other Activities: sun-bathing, shopping, Robinson Crusoe tours and turtle watching in summer
Eco: In the summer months night walking tours are available close by to watch turtles come on beaches to nest. It is a very special place.
