Akumal villa description

A charming and comfortable beachfront cottage, located at Jade Bay in Akumal, Riviera Maya, Mexico. The cottage is privately located in the beautiful tropical garden of a private gated property. Its terrace is only 15 yards from the beach and a 10 minute beach walk from Akumal Village. A choice of cozy restaurants will satisfy your appetite. Akumal, 'the place of the turtles', is located between Playa del Carmen with its European flavoured vivid night life and Tulum with its historical Maya ruins. Carpark, private gate, and much more. To find out more visit our website, see link in 'Further Details' below.


Beautiful Beachfront Cottage: Usually, beach front villas along the Riviera Maya are big and not meant for a couple or small family to stay, they have usually 5+ bedrooms. The weekly rates are high and not affordable unless you shop around to fill the beds. Our Cottage offers you the Caribbean beachfront joy, the privacy of your own secluded tropical garden and beachfront. An affordable alternative in paradise!

How to Get There: Conveniently located close to the highway 307 from Cancun to Tulum, exit Las Villas Akumal, km 253. Isla Escape can be reached by public transportation with a transfer to the Paradas Continuas or a taxi at Playa del Carmen. All major car rental companies are present at Cancun airport. Car rental is also available at Akumal. Detailed routing will be provided with your booking confirmation through our website.

Where to Go, What to Do: This holiday destination offers a great variety of cultural, historical and leisure activities. If you don`t like 'activities' you may simply lay back and relax on the terrace or the beach with a good book and the ever lasting sound of the ocean. For an extensive tour and information of the area, please visit our website.

                                        Isla Escape honours it's name. Here nothing is missing to realize your wish to escape hectic life and completely rewind. We have enjoyed our 10 day stay in December under a stark blue sky and with the sound of the nearby ocean very much. The Cottage is realy complete, clean, very well maintained and located in beautiful nature a few steps away from a clean beach that appeared to be a very popular jogging area. Diving opportunities and a popular snorkeling site, a variety of restaurants and shopping, all at beach-walking distance. We enjoyed the privacy of the garden and the beachfront so much that we hesitated to go out. Tulum and Playa del Carmen nearby, two places with a total different character and worthwile to hang around. We have found Isla Escape totally in accordance with what is advertised on Homeaway and the IslaEscape website. The owners, who live next door, were a real asset, kind and caring. We loved Isla Escape and would recommend everybody to consider the beauty of this place. The cottage is small and is in our opinion comfortable for maximum four persons and OK for kids as well.

                                        Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, families with teenagers.

                                        So, this is the fourth time we have written in this book Four times a paradise holiday at Isla Escape and it is still an adventure worth to remember the rest of my life. Oh my God, wow, it looks like it has always been there! Cottage is so well designed and built in the original cottage style, so nice. I was saying to my family today; this cottage has kind of watched us grow up, in a jumpy sort of way. I am now approaching the point in my life I realize that our vacations started here and also in my sister Lindsay's life. It is weird how much time I have spent here. Each time more fun than the last with the freedom and changes all very influential. I don't think I can express the words how grateful I am to stay here. Thanks again so much. Hopefully retiring soon!

                                        Each time we return to Isla Escape, we relax, enjoy and re-affirm our family's great experiences and the love we have for one another. BIll and I are truly blessed to be able to return here with our two girls, now 20 and almost 17! It is comfortable to know you are all here living in paradise and so warm, welcoming and friendly. I hope we all return in 2013 healthy and ready for new experiences and adventures. Hoping you all have a healthy peaceful 2013, thank you for memories that last a life time!

                                        Dear readers, I love Isla Escape, it is fully air-conditioned. And the loft is a nice play area for children. We are sad to say 'good bye', it went by so fast. There are nice things in the kitchen. When I look out to the ocean, I think of Denver, we never see this kind of view. The hammock is a nice place to sit and read a book while you listen to the sea. With Bozo and Tina guarding you and your house what could go wrong. I would go snorkeling and saw 5 sea turtles and a squid. Maybe go boating you might catch a fish. There is a nice couch to lounge on. I hope you like it. Sincerely,

                                        We have had a splendid time in Akumal and loved Isla Escape. This is our fourth time in Akumal and first time here at this house, it is a private paradise! Thank you very much for stocking the fridge before we have arrived! We hope to return next June!

                                        We had a great time here at Isla Escape. We enjoyed relaxing outside and laying in the chairs by the ocean and in the hammock. Bozo and Tina are great dogs that we will miss. Here are lots of good restaurants nearby at walking distance. Margarita was great and did everything to keep our cottage clean and made our stay top. Snorkeling rich tin front of the cottage is great! Scuba diving, (the shop at walking distance), visiting the Mayan ruins in Tulum were all great experiences. Thank your or this piece of paradise.

                                        We find all the praise that has gone before entirely credible! A few extra points: Ismael's warm greeting got us off to a good start. Jacob took care of our WiFi most efficiently. Bozo and Tina are the two most charming dogs one could hope to meet. Margarita looked after us cheerfully, and created amazing towel sculptures. The weather was OK too! In brief, a wonderful holiday at Isla Escape!
