Perfect for a friends weekend
"We needed a quiet place to gather at the end of a long week in Mexico, and Villa Arricefe made for an excellent last few days. The large open kitchen is perfect for cooking and gathering for meals. The bedrooms are big and comfy. And the pool area just the right amount of space for 10 of us to enjoy time together. A huge thank you to the owners for being so easy & nice to work with. Enjoy!"

"This condo is in a great location right on the beach of Half Moon Bay which is a less chaotic area than the more crowded Akumal Bay. We loved that we had the ability to walk (or take a short drive) to Akumal Plaza and the beach there but it was also nice to leave those more crowded areas behind and return to our quieter neighborhood. We had a car and I was happy to have it for day trips like Tulum, Coba and Rio Secreto(highly recommend the river tour). One of the smartest things we did was hire a chef at the owners suggestion. Daveed was fantastic to work with and we had dinner in the fridge waiting for us when we arrived - authentic enchiladas were heaven at the end of a long travel day. Later in the week Daveed came to the unit and we had a cooking lesson for the family which was fun for all. Bring reef shoes as the beach entrance is rocky - the upside is some easy fun snorkeling right on your doorstep. The lagoon is a 10 minute walk away with excellent snorkeling in more protected water. We found with all our excursions it made a HUGE difference to go early before the crowds arrive - especially snorkeling in the lagoon and swimming with the turtles in Akumal Bay which can get exceptionally crowded when the vans and tour buses from hotels show up. No laundry in the unit but you can get laundry done inexpensively across the freeway. Kitchen was well stocked. Owner is responsive. Daily maid service was nice option."

"I had visited the Akumal area quite a few years ago and have always wanted to return to this place of paradise . This was My first time staying at Casa Acacia and the house is located on the best spot at Akumal sur. The bay is protected by a reef and the waters are no deeper than 5 1/2 feet, which provides the most spectacular snorkeling experience I have ever had.
Hammocks to relax in and a sea kayak for your enjoyment. We were two couples with more room than we needed.
The roof top provided us with wonderful star gazing at night and gorgeous sunrises in the morning. Quite spot to listen to the sea and read a book.
The owners of the property are wonderful and easy going, the packet of information they send To find the home is spot on. We rented a car at the airport and drove it was easy. We stopped at the Chedraui in Playa del Carmen on our way for a big grocery shop. Everything you could possible need including beer,wine and liquor.
Doris and Abraham the housekeeper and grounds keeper are charming and helpful. Doris will cook for you her chile reños and Flan are delicious.
The home is a modest beach house nothing fancy the furniture is a bit tired. There is a downstairs kitchen that is great for keeping snacks and beverage for easy access from the pool and beach. The upstairs kitchen although small is fully stocked for all your cooking needs. Gas range, refrigerator , toaster , blender, etc.
Some day I hope to return thank you Pete for sharing this place .

"We had a lovely week both weather wise and activity wise. Had a chance to fish on a small Panga from the down town fleet. Caught a couple sizable Dorado and your Master Chef cooked them up Veracruz style. Really great. Went to Aktun Chen for a neat tour of the Akumal caves and Cenote as well as Ya Kul for some great snorkeling in that bay.
So thank you for building such a great place. The staff were great and the location excellent."
