  • Do yourself a favor and stay here

    "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."

  • Beautiful Vacation Home

    "We have just returned from a week's vacation at Villa Arrecife. We were a family of 8 who stayed at the Villa. The Villa is absolutely beautiful and was spotless. There was plenty of space for the 8 of us to gather including a gourmet kitchen, dining area and large family room. The cleaning lady was there most of the day to clean the Villa which also included laundry service and dishes. We brought in a chef service to make our evening meals so we were totally pampered during our stay. The grounds and pool area are maintained very well. If you wanted some quiet time, you could retreat to one of the balconies on the second floor to read a book or just look out at the view. We felt so safe staying on the premises of the gated resort - each evening we would walk down to the beach. The villa is approximately a 5 minute drive from Akumal Beach. We used Cancun Shuttle Service which picked us at the airport and drove us to the Villa, and then returned us to the airport the following week. There is a taxi stand located on the resort so we were able to grab a cab whenever we needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to others and I would definitely stay there again. This is the first time we have used VRBO and was so impressed. Tamara was wonderful to deal with and answered all of my questions. T"

  • A little slice of heaven

    "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."

    "From the time we arrived, everything was great. The room was immaculate. Fresh towels, ice in the freezer, reliable wifi for FaceTime. The staff was amiable and helpful. The location cannot be beat. Close to all the restaurants you can need and a nice private patio for when you need refuge from the sun. My wife and I will absolutely return again and again."
