  • Peaceful, relaxing Paradise!

    "Beautiful area, beautiful home! You will feel relaxed and yet exhilarated in this paradise! So much to do and enjoy in the surrounding area, as well as great snorkeling & kayaking right from the beach at the villa!! Wonderful gated community -- always have felt completely safe!"

  • a little bit of paradise

    "Our family really enjoyed our stay at Nicte Ha. The decor was beautiful, the ocean views were outstanding, the house was clean and well-stocked. The house felt secluded and quiet, just what we wanted in a vacation. Maria prepared a delicious dinner for us, and the house was always clean. Jose, the gardener, was SUPER! Friendly, helpful and a really nice guy. He rinsed our rental car every day. Having said that, future guests should be aware of a couple of things: (1) although the house description lists a washer and dryer, the laundry room is locked, with a sign that says the housekeeper will do the laundry for a charge. We were disappointed, as we had planned to do laundry our last day (Sunday), which was the maid's day off. Rather misleading in the description. (2) While the house IS beautiful, it is a bit frayed around the edges. Just a few little annoyances with non-working fans, lights, cracked tiles inside and outside. (3) CHECK the HOUSE KEYS before you leave the house locked. Only one key fit the front door, and we could never get the second front door to unlock with EITHER key. (4) I wouldn't bring young children here; the tiles inside and out are extremely slick when wet, and the stairs to the upper rooms are steep and slick as well. (5) On Thursday, we left our beach towels to be washed, but we didn't receive replacements until Saturday afternoon. (6) The wi-fi is not reliable, and is spotty upstairs. Plus, the instructions we were given to log in were not correct. Since we needed to be in touch with family in the States, this was a bit disconcerting. Would we stay here again? Probably. Just be aware of the hiccups."

  • A Mayan Riviera Paradise!

    "What a magnificent place! I've rented homes online before and what I saw was not always what I got. This exceeded my expectations in beauty, location, services and comfort. Udi's home is designed to perfection. The staff couldn't be better. Martin is an amazing chef. We will definitely return. It was particularly nice to go in July when we could watch the sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach, but this would be one of my top picks anytime of the year. The bedrooms are all gorgeous and the view from the living room is spectacular. Thank you for giving us the perfect family vacation. It was exactly what we hoped for! One final note. Udi takes great pride in both Akumal and his home and you get to work with him personally. He helped us immensely and we have become friends as a result."

  • Do I have to leave ?

    "My third visit to Mexico ... but without a doubt, the best! Casa Cielo is situated in a secure neighborhood within easy commute of Cancun. The house itself is situated just steps from the beach and a refreshing blue pool. The garden offers plenty of privacy and a great mix of sun and shade. It didn't take long for our group to settle in and feel at home. There are plenty of windows throughout and soaring ceilings in the living area which make the space seem larger than the photos online. The furnishings were comfortable and I especially enjoyed the Mexican folk art throughout. We enjoyed several amazing meals prepared by staff there (don't pass up this opportunity), but also took advantage of some wonderful restaurants in nearby Akumal and Tulum. The house and garden were kept clean and well maintained throughout our stay. The owner was incredibly helpful in trip planning as was the house manager that is available once you check in. We were able to plan our own adventures without the nagging sales people you encounter at some of the all inclusive resorts. Upon recommendation, we finally visited Xel-Ha park and also had a wonderful pool side massage at the house. You really can enjoy yourselves without leaving the house. There are kayaks, hammocks, snorkel gear on site. My only complaint is that my schedule didn't allow me to stay longer!"
