Akumal villa description
Casa de las Conchas is a dream 4500 sq ft beachfront caribbean vacation home, situated right on the white sandy beach at the quiet residential community of South Akumal. Conchas sports 4 large bedrooms all quipped with King beds. The huge master bedroom on the upper floor is the entire length of the house and complete with a small living area, patio doors out onto the oceanfront terrace, it's own dressing room, and a huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub!
The second upper bedroom also has doors leading out onto the ocean front terrace. Conchas actually sports over 2000squ ft of outdoor decks and balconies! Wake up to the sparkling Caribbean sea and the sound of the water lapping against the shore. The 3rd bedroom on the upper floor has a great view over the tropical gardens to the rear of Casa de las Conchas, and also leads onto its own ensuite bathroom and ocean view kitchen, dining, and living area (with double pull out bed for extra sleeping). This bedroom also has it's own access from an external staircase so is ideal for those looking for a little extra privacy.
As we go downstairs we are welcomed by the large family kitchen leading onto the living area and ocean front dining room. There is plenty of seating for large groups to dine together here. If you don't feel like cooking then we can highly recommend hiring the housekeeper Chayo to cook you and your family a feast of delicious local delicacies or traditional mayan cuisine! Upon arrival at the villa you will be greeted by a complimentary gift basket of tequila mixers.
In the northern part of the villa there is a further 4th bedroom with King sized bed and again it's own ensuite and separate kitchen and living area. This fourth bedroom, like the garden view bedroom upstairs, also has it's own additional independent access.
From the living room walk out through the patio doors onto the outdoor terrace with 2 large dining tables and chairs for wonderful Caribbean alfresco breakfasts in the sun, daytime BBQs, or dining under the stars. Take a dip in the great freshwater swimming pool or relax on white sandy beach under one of the house's 3 thatched palapas. The bay at Akumal South is protected by a double barrier reef just 100m offshore making the water in the bay very calm almost all year round and awesome for snorkeling. For this reason it is home to a whole host of tropical reef life including endangered sea turtles who nest right here on the beach from may to September every year. The villa offers 3 kayaks for guest use so grab one and explore the bay!
Dont miss taking full advantage of Casa de las Conchas huge roof terrace! The villa also has a Vonage phone with free land line calls to the US, Canada, and some European countries, 3 sets of golf club included. 2 complimentary one hour massages included for 7 nights or more reservations.
Casa de las Conchas truly is a wonderful home for large groups letting you get the amount of independence or together time just right for your well deserved, relaxing, tropical vacation.

Perfect family vacation in paradise.Guest comment entered by manager
Perfect family vacation in paradise.
This was the perfect place for our family vacation. The 4-bedroom house in South akumal is spacious and right on the beach. For warm days, there is air conditioning in every room. The house staff was friendly and helpful, able to buy groceries and prepare meals, allowing us to enjoy our vacation without needing to travel or rent a car. The ocean reef in the bay makes for perfect snorkeling. We saw an eagle ray, sting rays, baracuda, lobster, and countless fish. This is a quiet and secure neighborhood. If you're looking for a party environment, then don't bother coming to beautiful South akumal. If you need to go into the town of akumal, it's a 30 minute walk on the beach or you can arrange for a taxi. We loved it here and can't wait to return.

When can I move here?
Everything at Casa de las Conchas was amazing. Akumal is now my favorite place to vacation. The beach was beautiful, the house has everything and akumal is a wonderful little village. I would highly recommend the fruit stand on Wednesday morning. Turtle Bay resturant was a great place to eat. The ruins at Coba were excellent. The ruins at Tulum were good but there were tons of people. The best part of Tulum was the snorkeling we did. It was fun to read the journals in the house and we were able to select what we wanted to do based on what others had written. I can not wait to return!

A family vacation to remember.
We stayed at Las Conchas during april vacation, and are still dreaming of our time there. Our group consisted of two families together with children ranging in age from 10 to18. Plenty of room for all, and the pictures just don't do it justice. Some of the best things were, a/c in the bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, outdoor spaces, hermit crabs. Loved getting up in the morning and sitting outside with a cup of coffee, soaking in the views. The beach bright out front was beautiful and had great snorkeling and beach combing (although a little rocky so wear water shoes). the pool was just the right size and so refreshing after a busy day of exploring. We also really enjoyed walking the 25 minutes along the beach into Turtle Bay, where we ate at Lol Ha and swam with sea turtles. There really is so much to do in the area (we had some great day trips to Xel-Ha, Yal Koo lagoon, and the Jungle Place), and we always felt very safe. Miguel was our driver for a few of our trips, and he was such a pleasure to work with. We really enjoyed every day of our time at Las Conchas and were sad to leave. In regards to the staff, what a lovely group of people caring for such a special place. Guille was so good about checking in on us and making sure we had everything we needed, and we really enjoyed chatting with her when she visited (she has so much knowledge of the area). Chayo and Felix do a wonderful job keeping the home spotless and we hardly knew they were there. Hilario was always there before anyone woke up to make sure the grounds and pool were clean and ready for our days of fun, he does such a great job. In addition to Chayo's cleaning skills, she is also an excellent chef. We had her cook dinner for us and it was so good we wish we had done that more. The only thing we liked least was probably the grocery shopping. We would recommend doing the grocery delivery on line. Also, the grill is charcoal not gas, so just plan accordingly. C Gracias!

Great Family Location - Casa de las Conchas
"Great Family Location" We stayed at Casa de las Conchas for one week in March. We loved every day of the stay. The house was excellent. Very clean and comfortable. The private pool and beach area were wonderful. Chayo and Felix kept everything clean. Hilario did a great job keeping the outside area and pool clean. One thing that I really appreciated was the manager, Guille, asking us what time we would like the cleaners to work to ensure our privacy. We gave them the hours that would be best for us and they stuck to this. Very nice. The walks up and down the beach were great. The snorkeling was great. My 12 year old son and I loved walking to akumal Beach to Lol Ha for a snack and back. It is about a 30 to 40 minute walk or so, but just great. We loved the roof top deck. Several meals, games and drinks were enjoyed up there. I felt very safe in this area with my wife,10 year old daughter and 12 year old son. Make sure to go to La Buena Vida Bar/Restaurant for a nice atmosphere. We can not wait to come back! Joe

Casa de las Conchas was Perfect!
Sorry for the delay - still trying to get used to working after the fabulous vacation! The house was perfect, cleaning, cooking, maintenance - all perfect. Guille was great - available when needed with great information. Chayo was awesome - food was great, she was super nice to the kids, etc. We really had a great time and are looking forward to coming back next year! All of us that were there plus a family that came for a night for dinner are getting together this weekend for a big Mexican food/drink festival. My friend is going to try and replicate one of Chayo's meals. Tell everyone thanks again and we'll see them soon.

Paradise in Akumal
Paradise in Akumal
My wife and I, together with 4 close friends, just returned from a week at Casa de las Conchas. We are now experiencing collective withdrawls. The house, nestled on a quiet street in close proximity to a pristine bay and within easy beach-walking distance to the quaint town of Akumal, served our needs beautifully. The house is spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. The housekeepers and cooks extraordinaire, Chayo and Felix, were excellent and made every effort to ensure that our stay was relaxing and worry-free. Our group is already looking forward to our next opportunity to spend some special time at Casa de las Conchas. Thank you Guille for managing our stay with such pleasant efficiency, and to Marcia Kirby for your valuable assistance in planning our stay.

Manager response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts about your stay at Casa de las Conchas. It was a pleasure to have your group as our guests. We will look forward to your return! It is wonderful the house and staff worked well for your vacation. We all apprecaite you choosing Casa de las Conchas.
We stayed at the Casa De Las Conchas over Christmas. We had rented homes in the past and I was a little disappointed in this one. Although it was very clean and maintained, the housekeepers were there every day all day long. Even coming at 8:00am the day we were to leave? There was no privacy. Also the mattresses on every bed were VERY hard and uncomfortable and we were disappointed to find out that there was no gas grill but some sort of home made grill. We did love the Turtle Bay Bakery in Akumal. Excellent food and they deliver also the beaches in Tulum, amazing

Manager response: Thank you for taking the time to submit your comments about your stay at Casa de las Conchas. At any time during your stay you would have been welcome to address your concerns about the maid being on site with the manager, Guille. You would have also been welcome to bring up the issue of the beds. Management has access to memory foam pads and could have made the beds more soft if requested. No request is too minor be to be addressed. A simple conversation with the staff could have made the difference. Thank you for staying with us.

Fantastic time at Casa De Las Conchas!
We had a fantastic time. The property was just as described and exceeded our expectations. The beach was beautiful and the snorkeling in the bay was exceptional. Guille, Chayo and Felix took great care of us and Chayo's cooking was fantastic. My kids could not stop talking about her Chicken Maya. We would recommend the property to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation in a simply beautiful setting. Thanks again for the assistance and recommendations. Also, Sahara Cafe on Soliman bay was simply exceptional. One of the best meals I've ever had and I've had the pleasure of eating in some of the best restaurants in the world. Great setting with fantastic food and very good service.

Fantastic Time at Casa de las Conchas
I just want to tell you that we all had a fantastic time at Casa de las Conchas. The setting was just what we wanted...the beach ,pool, Xel Ha, shopping trip to Playa del Carmen,etc. etc. My sons went fishing one day and caught 6 huge dorados. We only ate 2 and gave the rest to Chayo and Guille. These 2 ladies were a great help and Chayo cooked "comidas tipicas" for us one night and was enjoyed by all. I had plenty of time to practice my spanish and that was a big plus.So once again, muchas gracias for all your help. perhaps we will go back to Akumal another time soon!
