"I travel extensively, and have stayed in VRBO homes in many locations. This one was hard to beat.
My wife and three of our children stayed here for 5 days in April. From the moment you walk through the front door, you are treated to an extraordinary view of lovely pool, framed by the beautiful Caribbean Sea perhaps 10 seconds walk from your sliding doors. We ate our meals (several prepared by the house manager Guille- a reason to visit in her own right) on the perfect table next to the pool and looking out at the Carribean. The pool and sitting area were shaded, which was perfect given the strength of the sun. We could snorkel from shore, and while not phenomenal, we did see a Manta Ray, some small fish, and nice coral formations. There were two kayaks at our disposal as well.
One of the things we liked the most was the number of lovely locations to sit (or lay down) to take advantage of the view. We could hang by the pool, or outside our bedroom on the deck, or travel upstairs to the roof. There were three nice bedrooms with king, king and queen beds, and three futon couches that folded down to sleep a couple more in each, if needed. The kitchen was well equipped. Furnishings were comfortable, not extravagant, and perfect for a beach house. Wifi worked great, as did the sat tv, though we didn't use it.
Perfect location 5 minutes from Akumal Bay, 10 minutes from Tulum, near all the X- parks, and an hour from Coba ruins, which we really enjoyed. I've stayed in some beautiful homes in St. John, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Cozumel, and the intimate view of this home was beyond compare. The owner Verna, was friendly and helpful, putting a cherry on our vacation sundae."
