Property description

Esperanza offers a quiet, peaceful setting a mere 3 minute walk to Akumal Bay and central Akumal. Akumal Bay is the primary gathering spot where you can enjoy the sugar white beaches and pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea. In central Akumal, you will find all the conveniences you need, including restaurants, grocery stores, Internet services, dive centers and more. Pride of ownership is evident throughout this hacienda style home. Talavera tile counter tops and red terra cotta floors complement tropical hardwood doors and windows. The bedrooms are separated from the living quarters and all open to an arched terrace and swimming pool surrounded by a beautiful garden. The kitchen is a gourmet cook's delight. Fully equipped, Esperanza offers the modern conveniences of home with the charm of colonial Mexico, all in the idyllic setting of Akumal. Once you visit, you will not want to leave. Once you leave, you are bound to return.

The villa has a lovely living room, but most guests spend their time relaxing on the large, covered outdoor terrace. From the terrace, there is an uninterrupted view of the mangrove forest, one of Mexico's most precious natural resources, where exotic birds and animals are often heard. The patio wraps around the swimming pool where resort quality lounge chairs are situated for sunbathing by day and star gazing by night.

Just off the living room there is a small terrace, shaded in the morning, making a perfect place to enjoy your first cup of coffee. A separate study, detached from the main living area, provides a cozy retreat for those who might seek a little solitude during their stay. Here you have the privacy to read a good book or take a long nap in air conditioned comfort. The study has a futon for an additional guest.

Akumal is 60 miles south of Cancun on the Yucatan Peninsula, an area commonly known as the Mayan Riviera. It is a sleepy Mexican fishing village that has been discovered, yet still retains its charm. The pace is slow; light years away from the all-inclusive resorts that dominate the area. Akumal is surrounded by beautiful bays, with the finest snorkeling, diving and deep sea fishing. Ancient Mayan ruins are nearby. International cuisine, cosmopolitan shopping and night life is found in Playa del Carmen, a short distance away. When visiting Akumal, the seasoned traveler can have it all!

Other Activities: just plain relaxing
