“A Beautiful and affordable Villa in Paradise” This is a great villa with sleeping arrangements that can accommodate a variety of travelers. I bring groups to learn to visual journal in watercolor - many don't know each other, so the variety of bedrooms and bed sizes etc plus the many lovely common areas both upstairs and down are a big plus. The kitchen is well equipped, the pool and patio area - gorgeous. And it is undoubtedly the least expensive villa in the area due to its location across the road from the beach. It is toward the end of the road,near the lagoon so, unless you are an able walker a car or golf cart or bicycles might be necessary to get to most restaurants and shops. We love the villa and recommend it highly! And we still love akumal after 14 years of visiting there!
“Incredible home, excellent location, lots of privacy” From the moment we arrived, the house felt like home. It was perfect for us having two teenagers who want their own privacy. The home is situated on the very southern point of Half Moon Bay, and has incredible views and privacy. The home was very clean, and welcomed us with fresh fruit. Sylvia is the house keeper and is so friendly and very helpful. Luis is the care taker and is also very friendly and helpful. Lots of iguanas around the yard, and barking gecko's are all over the place, and are super cool. At night the hermit crabs come out around the pool and sometimes in, but are harmless and fun to watch. Sylvia is an incredible cook if you want her to make you dinner, and if you have never had avocado soup, you have to try it. Even our very picky kids loved it along with the entire meal.
It is a very short walk to La Buena Vida restaurant and bar, which has great food and is a lot of fun. There are neat little tide pools and little sand pockets just outside the back door of the house, but the house sits mostly on a rock out cropping. If you want the bigger white sand beaches, its a very short walk to the beach at half moon bay, and a relatively short walk to akumal Bay, about a half mile or 10 minutes. The area is incredibly safe and secure. We walked all over the place, sometimes late at night, and felt very comfortable and safe. Everyone we met was very friendly, and very helpful for directions.
The home was really incredible, and would be ideal for two or three couples. The casita over the garage is also very private and very nice. I really can't wait to go back!!!
“Relaxing” This was such a great stay in a wonderful neighborhood. We are home owners in the neighborhood and had to get out of our house for 1 week. We decided to stay here. It had all the comforts of home. It's colors are refreshing and the yard exquisite. Its located next to a beautiful cenote, which we visited every day. I cannot find any faults with this quaint little casa.
