Property description

NOW WITH HIGH SPEED WiFi INTERNET SERVICE and LARGE FLAT SCREEN Sony 'Bravia'

Casa Palapa is a Private Beach House located directly on the beach in Akumal.

It is also directly across the highway from one of the newest and most challenging golf courses in the world! Robert Trent Jones is right across the street! Playacar and Mayacoba Golf Courses are also nearby. This is indeed a golfer's paradise!

Located on the soft sandy beaches of Aventuras Akumal, Casa Palapa offers a bright and spacious villa for an unbelieveable rate. Casa Palapa is a private setting along one of the Riviera Maya's best kept 'secret' beaches.

Aventuras Akumal, located just five minutes south of Akumal Bay, offers visitors a long stretch of soft white sand beach, sparkling turquoise water, and excellent opportunities to enjoy the snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing found along Mexico's Riviera Maya. The beach here is never crowded and the living is easy.

Newly renovated, Casa Palapa highlights the bright colors and rich natural beauty of it's surroundings. Casa Palapa is located perfectly on the sandiest part of Aventuras Akumal's beach making it easy to enter the water.

Casa Palapa offers a spacious living and dining area on the main level with cool ocean breezes moving through. Floor-to-ceiling glass means that you can always enjoy the incredible views. The atmosphere of a cool and comfortable haven is enhanced by marble floors and bright colors. Also on the main level is a fully equipped kitchen along with a full bath.

Off of the main living and dining area is a covered beachside patio and the palm bordered sand deck with beach furnishings that provides just a little additional privacy and a perfect setting for sun bathers.

The upper level consists of three air conditioned bedrooms, each with ocean views and private beachside terraces. The master bedroom has a large private bath done in marble. The two guest bedrooms share another large marble bath.

The open, shady beachfront Palapa accommodates 2 hammocks or a table and chairs for ocean side dining.

For an additional fee our English speaking Property Manager is available to arrange private fishing, snorkeling and/or SCUBA diving. He can also help provide additional services including babysitting, special meals, laundry, etc....

BEDROOMS: A total of 3 Bedrooms and 3 Baths--ALL with fabulous open views overlooking the beach and the sparkling Caribbean Sea.

Master Bedroom Upper Level, Ocean View with Private Terrace and Bath: 1 King Bed

Guest Bedroom Upper Level, Ocean View with Private Terrace: 2 Twin Beds

Guest Bedroom Upper Level, Ocean View with Private Terrace: 2 Double Beds

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife and I purchased Casa Palapa in 2004, and we now share it with value-minded individuals who appreciate the fact that you can sometimes pay less and actually get more! Compare, then email us, and make your reservation to stay at Casa Palapa. We're not kidding! You'll save hundreds of dollars and stay in a beautiful beach house that's directly on a wide sandy beach. Kayak, Snorkel and Scuba Dive right from your own beach! We take personal pride in Casa Palapa, and we know you'll enjoy your stay. As you view our photos, just imagine yourself, Family, and Friends relaxing under the palapa in their Mexican hammocks. Or, snorkeling and seeing fish schools, sea turtles, and more! Or walk 1 minute up the beach to schedule diving and fishing trips at Aqua-Tech. Or enjoying Mexican food and frosty-cold margaritas at the beach bar a short walk in the sand. Pio, our Property Manager, lives right next door and speaks perfect English. He'll help you arrange for special Mayan Dinners, Day-Trips to Tulum and Chichen-Itza, or whatever else you and your guests would like to do during your stay at Casa Palapa. Book your reservation NOW by emailing us.

Why the Owner Chose Akumal:
My wife and I began visiting the Riviera Maya (the area along the Mexican Caribbean from Cancun south to Tulum) in 1980. At that time, Akumal was a sleepy fishing village. After almost 30 years, Akumal has retained its charm and its reputation as the best ocean front vacation in the entire Caribbean! Each year, more visitors from around the world travel to Akumal to enjoy their vacation in an Akumal beach house than all other Caribbean destinations combined! Now that the Maya ruins at Chichen-Itza have been named a 'Wonder of the World' (it's less than 2 hours away!) annual visitors to our area are expected to more than double. But you don't have to travel 2 hours to experience the magical Maya. The ruins at Tulum are only 15 minutes south of Akumal! Or you can enjoy a stroll up and down the world famous 5th Avenue in Playa Del Carmen which is 30 minutes north. 5th Avenue is a continuing stream of shops, restaurants, cantinas, and all kinds of retail pleasures than runs the entire length of the city! More shopping than you can imagine. Gift items from all over Mexico can be found here at very reasonable prices. The Riviera Maya and especially Akumal is safe and secure. Your visit to this fabulous eco-destination will be one that you and your Family and Friends will remember. It's THE place to be in 2014!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our Property Manager, Pio, lives right next door and speaks excellent English. He can take you on a fishing or snorkeling trip on his boat which stays moored right off your beach. Or, he can take you and your friends on a trip down an ancient, crystal-clear, Maya-made river. Or, how about a dip in one of our many local Cenotes? Pio and his wife can also prepare and serve a Special Mexican Dinner or a Traditional Maya Feast for you and your guests. Pio, himself, can offer even more suggestions on ways you can spend your vacation time at Casa Palapa.
