Akumal villa description

Put your toes in the water, butt in the sand. Relax in the hammock under the palms with a cold beer in your hand. And this is only the first day of your vacation at our beautiful Casa Gray on the Mayan Riviera.

We have three bedrooms with their own private baths and views of the sparkling turquoise Caribbean waters. The two upstairs bedrooms have small balconies for two to view the beach or sunrise. The beds are made each morning (except Sunday) by our housekeeper, Ana. Each bedroom has an individually controlled air conditioner.

We have an equipped kitchen in which you can prepare a home made meal and as an added bonus Ana will wash the dishes in the morning. Or we can arrange to have home made meals prepared at the villa for you (dinner only). If you prefer dining out, there are also many native restaurants within 15 minutes. There are fresh fruit stands in every little town, notably Akumal and Tulum.

Our property managers, Rhett and Eddie are experts in the area, and can provide useful information on activities, restaurants and turtle watching. In addition, if you have any issues while you are vacationing at Casa Grey, they will help resolve it.

Our grand room is designed for a cozy family evening with an entertainment center that has books, games, DVD movies and CDs. During the day you can snorkel, swim or kayak right out back in our reef protected bay. You can also walk down the beach and hire a small fishing boat for a short ride just outside the bay.

Pedro, our groundskeeper, will keep the windows sparkling clean and the beach out front well groomed. He will also set up a kids inflatable pool for the toddlers if you desire.

For the nature lovers, if you come down between April and November you can witness the nesting habits and hatching of loggerhead and green turtles right on our beaches. These turtles can get up to 450 lbs.

For the ancient civilization buffs, there are numerous major and minor Mayan ruins within 3 hours of Casa Grey including: Tulum, Coba, Ek Balam, Uxmal, Chichen Itza, Mayapan, Lultun and Muyil to name a few.

For the fisherman the prime time is April, May & June for wahoo, mahi-mahi, yellowfin tuna, sailfish, white and blue marlin and others..

We offer additional discounts for stays of 7 nights or more.

Currently we can accept payment by credit card, personal check, or wire transfer to a US bank account.

                      Beach Front Akumal Mexico VacationVilla! 11/09/2011

                      VRBO Bear stayed here:


                      There I was, bear on the beach, a click or three south of Playa Akumal. My five friends oohed and aahhed at their first sight of the white Yucatan sand and blue-green yet crystal-clear sea. I took a dozen steps from the villa’s front porch and was in it. After swimming with the fishes and coral, I rinsed at the outdoor shower, shook my furry hide, stretched out in a palm tree-supported hammock, and sipped a cold Bohemia.

                      The light is different in this tropic latitude, and so is your attitude. I felt as though I could hear sounds and see colors more clearly. With a cool breeze flowing through the nicely appointed kitchen, the bear observed a daily rite: preparing guacamole and margaritas from fresh local ingredients. As I served bebidas, guacamole, y totopos de maiz to my mates, I realized that our stretch of beach was quiet – almost private. The resort a couple hundred meters north was inaudible. Jet skis and the occasional power boat gamboled near the east horizon, beyond hearing. My fuzzy ears detected only palm fronds and shore break. Gorgeous dawn skies over the gem-like sea invite one to snorkel. Turtle nests, monitored and protected dot the beaches. Crabs of all sizes leave meandering tracks during the night.

                      The house features a lavish garden/courtyard on the way in from the street, a large living room and kitchen/dining area, and three air-conditioned suites: a downstairs master, plus two upstairs each with a balcony. We frequently chose to sleep al fresco. Plenty of ruins and lagunas, cenotes, cafes, and shopping, but the bear hugged home. Our villa and beach were it.

                      It would be tough to top. This bear’s been on quite a few spectacular and relaxing vacations, but his seven-day sojourn at Villa Italiano beats all.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1986

                      About: This is a family vacation villa owned by the Grays. A dream come true. We try to maintain a cozy, casual and fun atmosphere. We want you to kick off your shoes, lay back and enjoy the sun sipping on a mango margarita waking up feeling the greatness of nature.

                      Why Akumal:
                      We chose this location because it is far enough away from civilization to be relaxing. Yet it is close enough to a number of local restaurants and shopping. We are on a secluded beach with low foot traffic and we consider it the best bay from Cancun to Tulum. We also are enjoy Mayan history and there are numerous significant ruins within a day’s ride.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      We are slightly off the beaten track but still fairly close to everything. We have a native well maintained garden out front. We have been vacationing in the area for 20+ years and we never get tired of watching the large loggerhead and green turtles preform their nesting ritual. We also enjoy visiting the numerous Mayan ruins in the area. They continually are finding new ruins and continuing to excavate existing sites, so we never run out of new things to see.
