About the property

7 Bedrooms, 7.5 Bathrooms, 14 Sleeps

The amazing design and decor of Zen del Mar are the inspiration for its name: Zen of the Sea. You will no doubt feel your chakras align at this stunning contemporary architectural masterpiece situated on a secluded beach in Jade Bay and within walking distance of Akumal. From the moment you absorb the color of Zen del Mars claret exterior, historically used by the Mayans to promote good energy, you too will feel at peace.

The floor plan of Zen del Mar creates a synergy between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The first floor doors disappear into the hidden wall. Outside, you can enjoy the sixty foot infinity edge swimming pool, the lounge patio or sand patio and lounge chairs. An outdoor kitchen with a magnificent grill sets the tone for lovely alfresco dining. Indoors, you will find a home entertainment system with satellite TV, Wi-Fi access and baby equipment. Your reservation includes a villa manager and housekeeping. Chef services are available on request. Guests receive five complimentary on-site massages per one-week rentals.

The handmade terra cotta tiled floors and the heavy wooden double doors greet you with a feeling of calm contemplation. Zen del Mar takes advantage of the fabulous ocean views through subtle plays in elevation. The interior living room doors open onto a covered exterior lounge area with two cushioned couches. The lounge sits adjacent to the pool, making it easy to be outside, yet not directly in the sun.

This spacious luxury residence with seven bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms accommodates up to fourteen people. Each of the suites includes air conditioning, a ceiling fan, a TV and luxury linens. An elegant tropical feeling enchants guest as they turn in and wake up refreshed and invigorated each new morning.

Just steps from the oceans pristine waters, you will be perfectly positioned for an ultimate sun-filled holiday. The nearby caves Cenote Santa Cruz and Aktun Chen with their stalactites and underground rivers make pleasant choices for a day trip. At the beach, you will find many options for water sports including snorkeling and kayaking. You may also choose to visit Ek Balam, a Mayan ruin with several structures still intact. However you spend your days in the therapeutic Riviera sun, you are sure to appreciate the comfort and resplendence offered at Zen del Mar!

Great house to relax and play

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a family vacation with family. We had grown kids and little grandchildren. The house was set up to accommodate everyone. The bedrooms had extra beds for little ones. The staff helped with laundry, kid breakfast and high chairs.

The kitchen appliances were not the best if you plan on doing your own cooking. The BBQ grills were not in good shape, the dishwasher did not work and the ice maker was broken.

The pool area is great, always clean towels waiting in the morning and the pools was clean.

The cook did his best but he only does good basic Mexican food. He is not a chef so keep your expectations simple.

We had a great time and walking down to Akumal for swimming with the turtles and great ice cream is a must. Worth every penny for the house. We would do it again.

Perfect setting for our 50th wedding anniversary with family!

  • 5 of 5

Zen del Mar provided our whole family of 13 a perfect week of pure enjoyment. From the grandparents, to the parents,to two teenagers, to three under 3 1/2, everything was perfect. The housekeeper and the house and pool gentleman took care of each day like we were royalty.

From the time we arrived til the last of us departed everything was perfect. Any request that was made before we arrived was taken care of plus several extra amentities that were much appreciated.

The house is perfect for a large family to reside. Lots of room to spread out!

Having the opportunity to meet the owners was a treat--they were always there to make sure we were well taken care of.

We loved our Xmas week and would hope the opportunity will present itself for our return

Our stay at Zen was fun & relaxing ~ exactly what a vacation should be

  • 5 of 5

The bedrooms, baths and living spaces are great. The backyard design is very attractive and the furniture was comfortable ~ we loved the swinging bed! The cleaning staff was wonderful. It was great having the dishes done for us after each meal we prepared! The only downfall is the kitchen. The home seems to be set up for entertaining and I imagine most food is catered, but we did cook quite a bit. The toaster oven and toaster need to be replaced. The cooktop burners don't adjust - they keep clicking if you try to turn them down. The frying pans surface is peeling on many of them (not healthy). The binder says that the staff would start the barbeque for us but when we tried to ask Tony, he answered yes when I asked if I needed to buy briquettes (which we found hard to find) and there was no lighter fluid so this ended up being a big chore - but we managed. The grates on the barbeque were rusted. It would be great to have some task lighting, like right over the cutting board.
