  • Discovered Paradise!

    "What a wonderful stay we had in Akumal at the condo. Everything a vacationer could want. Full amenities, kitchen, and beach. We were content to stay on the patio, converse, read, and enjoy the waves and beach. We discovered Paradise and can not wait to return. I recommend Terry and Randy's place to all. We will be back!"

  • What an amazing property, location, and staff...best all around trip we've ever had!

    "We highly recommend a stay in Akumal at Casa Kukulcan under the ownership of Mike McGetrick… one of the best vacations we’ve ever had! Mike’s design of Casa Kukulcan teases out Mayan architecture into a contemporary building including a pyramid front and an entry reflective of a Mayan purification tunnel. ‘Purified’ is how you feel as you walk in the entry that produces a gorgeous home of tile floors, dark wood accents, and a full two-story glass visual out the back at the lap pool and ocean beyond, framed in by palm trees. Our extended family of 12 ranged from 8 to 81 and the house easily accommodated needs for all. The large kitchen and professional surfaces allowed for food prep plus hanging out space and the two dining table options easily sat us all. Large air conditioned bedrooms with individual temperature controls, and comfortable beds and pillows, provided your choice of sleeping arrangements. My wife and I chose to sleep in the master suite with all doors and windows open to allow the warm breezes to pass over us. We fell asleep listening to the surf (bugs not a problem) and awoke to the songs of the melodious blackbird and kiskadee. The sunrise was also available from our master suite bed or from the chairs on the veranda …with a full cup of a Mexican mocha in hand, it was indeed perfection! Casa Kukulcan offers so much that if we did nothing else during our stay, we could fully enjoy the property, swim in the pool, or snorkel in the ocean beyond. We did that a number of days including our first full day so we could rest from travel and fully absorb our luxurious spot. We drove a few mornings into Akumal beach (just around the back of the Akumal Dive Shop at 8am) to snorkel with an assortment of sea turtles and stingrays as they grazed on the sea grass. We visited Mayan ruins as well, but a highlight of our stay was a private tour by the owner of the Santa Cruz Cenote. Carlos was very helpful and made the arrangements, but I would advise making them well in advance. The owner knows his cave and cenote well, speaks great English, and is clear about his desire to protect it while also sharing this remarkable little piece of earth with others. Thank you Mike and staff for providing the back-drop to a magical vacation! The Vickland and Wilson Families"

  • Well priced Casita

    "I rented the Casita for a month from Jan-Feb this year. The pictures and description are not on the website but accurate pictures and description was sent to me via email promptly. There are two apartments on the property that are larger that are also for rent. The property is set back off the main highway (307) just under 1km and into the town of Akumal its about 3kms. I was without a vehicle for the first three weeks of my stay and found the collectivo an easy and inexpensive way to commute to Akumal Beach or any where along the highway between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum during the daytime. Because the property is off the beaten path a bit it is nice to have a car especially at night to travel between the property and restaurants in town. If walking back to the property at night bring along a torch/flashlight. The Casita was cleaned thoroughly once a week by Wendy, and David maintains the grounds. David speaks some English and Wendy Spanish; if you don't speak spanish an spanish dictionary is helpful when communicating. The kitchen comes with a fridge, microwave, blender,toaster and electric stove top burners and a drinkable water dispenser; pretty much everything you need in a kitchen. Overall, a well priced accomodation for budgetminded travellers."

  • Beautiful Villa with All Comforts of Home

    "This is a lovely and spacious villa. We made extensive use of the kitchen, which had everything we needed to prepare and serve meals. We often had 10 adults in the house at once, and it never seemed too crowded. Diana, the housekeeper, is a gem. She was hard-working and very trustworthy. The villa area is quiet and relaxing, yet just a short drive away from beaches, shops and grocery stores. We highly recommend this villa for your vacation."
