Overview

Quintana Roo Studio Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom studio condo steps away from the beach

There is a lovely tropical beach setting for this elegant second floor studio casita in gated South Akumal. This luxurious retreat is like no other - it has the feel of a villa, and offers privacy like no other casita in the Akumal area. This small gated community is private, well guarded and safe, with multi million dollar villas lining the beach. The casita is surrounded by lush green gardens, and just steps from a pristine quiet beach which will feel like your own. The open floor plan is elegant in decor, has central AC, a small balcony with a view of the beach flora, a nice living area, a majestic bed setting, a fully equipped kitchenette and a spacious marble bath.

It is perfect for honeymoons or just a romantic getaway. Lounge in the dramatic and comfortable king size bed (with the highest end mattress available in a rental), or on the built in couch watching satellite TV. The quality of the amenities, art, design and the decor of this casita are unparalleled in this small rental - making it a great place for particular guests looking for a first class smaller vacation home. Just steps away (you can hear the waves hit the breakers from the casita), is the beach, the path to it is lined by grand sea grape trees, which make great private and shady retreats from the warm tropical sun. The protected bay offers excellent snorkeling, swimming and kayaking.

The casita comes with beach towels, some snorkel equipment, a 2 person kayak, padded beach loungers, hammocks and Satellite TV/DVD and Wi-Fi Internet. Enjoy a late night stroll down the quiet beach under the moon lit sky after preparing dinner on the gas grill under the palms. May through September you may experience the wonder of sea turtles nesting, they’ve come to these beaches from beginning of time.

The casita sits just to the west of the main villa, which is not rented out. Guests will get the opportunity to meet the owner, who has a reputation for being a delightful hostess.

This is a charming studio condo, a treasure by the sea.

Fantastiskt ställe! Rekommenderas!

  • 5 of 5

Vi hade tur och hittade detta fina boende i Akumal. Väldigt lugnt och skönt.

Gabriellas casita är en bungalow i Mexikansk stil beläget på ett område med bevakning dygnet runt.

Hyr gärna bil och åk runt och se på olika sevärdheter. Åk några kilometer och ät god mexikansk mat på dom små lokala restaurangerna.

Casitan ligger några meter från havet. Gabriellas privata strand är jättefin med egna solstolar där man inte störs av några andra.

Man har en egen strand helt för sig själv. Vi fick låna kajak och snorkelutrustning mm.

Gabriellas casita är väldigt rent och fräscht, bra kvalitet på säng, sänglinne, nya handdukar och städning varje dag, välutrustat med allt man kan behöva.

Köket är komplett utrustat. Det finns WiFi, TV, Ljudanläggning.

Gabriella är en mycket trevlig värdinna som gärna hjälper till om ni har några frågor.

Vi hade en fantastisk vistelse som var värd varje krona!

We were lucky and found this fantastic accommodation in Akumal. Very quiet and nice.Gabriella's casita is a bungalow in Mexican style located on a guarded area. Rent a car and ride around and see the various sights. Drive a few kilometers and eat good Mexican food in the small local restaurants.The casita is situated a few meters from the sea. Gabriella's private beach is really nice with its own sun loungers where you are not disturbed by any others. It has a private beach all to yourself. We borrowed kayak and snorkel equipment etc.Gabriella's casita is very clean and fresh, good quality of bed linen, fresh towels and cleaning every day, well equipped with everything one might need.The kitchen is fully equipped. There is WiFi, TV, sound system.Gabriella is a very nice hostess who are happy to help if you have any questions.We had a fabulous stay that was worth every penny!

Excellent. absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect studio for two. Beautifully and tastefully decorated. Nothing is missing. The owner is the sweetest and most wonderful host. The place is spotless and has maid´s daily cleaning. The beach is very nice and is cleaned daily. The casita is very well located and in a gated community. Cannot get any better for the price you are paying. Would recommended it 100% and would love to go back someday!

Thank you Gabriela for a wonderful stay!

Casita in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I spent 18 wonderful days in Gabriella's casita in Akumal Sur in Jan.2015. I am an avid snorkeler and enjoyed enormously snorkeling in the bay & on the reef in front of the casita as well as in Akumal Bay (with turtles & rays), in the Lagoon at Yal Ku (with myriads of tropical fish), and in the various cenotes in the area (especially Sac Actun, with its caverns of stalactites & stalagmites). The casita is far more luxurious than we're accustomed to but well worth it. If one needs the city experience, Playa is 30 minutes away and Tulum - considerably more laid back - is 15. Just looking at the photos makes us both ache with longing to return. Highly recommended: muchas gracias Gabriella!

This is the place to stay in Akumal.

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this casita; after a very long day of travel, Gabriella's directions to the gated casita were easy to find. Her place is very clean, daily maid service, fresh water. Gabriella is the perfect host, we had many enjoyable conversations under the straw patio with our adult beverages. We had our best meals in Tulum; El Camello, they have the best seafood around, and La Buena Vida for your adult beverages, cannot go wrong there! We snorkeled and kayaked almost everyday. My husband and I had the perfect romantic week, and would love to go back.

You must stay here!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! The casita is a delight, as is Gabriella. The casita is exactly as pictured--Gabriella has taste, I must say. The walk-in shower is perfect after a day at the beach. The sitting area is comfortable. The bed is a dream. The kitchen has all you will need. You can snorkel right outside the casita or go down the beach to Akumal north. Be sure to check out Ya-Kul for excellent snorkeling. Eat at La Lunita. It's definitely the best restaurant in the area. Akumal Sur, where the casita is located, is much quieter than Akumal north. We loved the casita and will be back! P.S. Be sure to say hello to Pantera, Gabriella's dog.

What a relaxing stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

"This is a lovely place to relax at. The casita is beautiful and clean with daily maid service. Gabriella is a wonderful host and very helpful with local knowledge and restaurant suggestions. The beach is very private and with comfortable loungers. I snorkelled out to the reef from our beach. Akumal and Tulum are the closest towns and we had a wonderful birthday meal at Citle in Tulum. If you like peace and quiet, this is for you"
