About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 12

Casa Iguana is located oceanfront in between Akumal Bay beach and Half Moon Bay beach. The heart of Akumal, Akumal Bay is located an easy ten minute stroll from the property. Here you will find great restaurants, boutiques, dive shops, and famous Turtle Bay Cafe. The beach of Akumal is soft white sand and is an excellent place to sunbathe and swim. Especially for those with younger children!

A quick walk the other direction (north) will take you to La Buena Vida Restaurant and Bar and the beach of Half Moon Bay. Half Moon Bay is known for its excellent snorkeling. This is a great place to see coral and tropical fish.

Casa Iguana is situated on a large lot and that has two separate structures; the main two bedroom home and the adjacent two bedroom casita. The most wonderful features of Casa Iguana are the outdoor living and dining areas, swimming pool, play area for volleyball and an ocean front palapa with hammocks. This is the perfect spot for taking in this amazing place.

Enjoyed our stay at Casa Iguana,

  • 4 of 5

Daniel and Alessia were wonderful hosts making our stay quite comfortable. Daniel and his son cooked fajitas for our dinner one evening and even made margaritas. The beds were comfortable with air conditioning units in each bedroom. The only thing we missed was a nice beach. The beach behind the house is rough rocky terrain all the way to the water, so it is not good for hanging out. Loved the pool and everything else about the property. The house is located in a small community in Akumal within walking distance of several restaurants and shops. Definitely a good value for the money.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments about the staff. We are proud of them. They simply wish to please. Casa Iguana is located a short 5-minute walk to Akumal's two sand beaches, Akumal Bay and Half Moon Bay. The coastline is rocky ancient seabed out from which allows a bit more privacy than staying beachfront. We are happy to hear that your group enjoyed the pool and the grounds. It will be a pleasure to welcome you back should vacation time permits. Thank you for staying with us. Your business is appreciated. Warmly, Akumal Direct Resevations.

Great location and amazing staff!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family enjoyed their stay at Casa Iguana. Daniel and Alicia were very nice and welcoming. The weather was perfect and the house was perfectly located, within walking distance from local restaurants, the Yal-Ku lagoon, and the Dive center.

We enjoyed Daniel's cooking and also took advantage of the kitchen to prep a few meals ourselves. We spent a lot of time in the pool, adults and toddlers alike while cataloging all of the iguanas living on the property. We look forward to visiting Akumal again in the future.

Excellent outdoor space in a great little village in the Riviera Maya

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 11 extended family members, which included 3 children under 5, stayed at Casa Iguana. The pool is perfect for the little ones. It was also nice having two kitchen on the property for storing all our food. The best part about this property is its staff. Daniel was excellent and made us beautiful dinners every night. The little palapa with hammocks overlooking the sea was also heavily used by our group. The property is showing its age a bit but everything was very clean and the landscaping is neat. The location is walking distance to the village of Akumal where there is great snorkeling or you can walk in the other direction to the lagoon (Yal Ku) for more of a fresh water swimming/snorkeling experience.

Amazing week!

  • 4 of 5

The property was well kept. It was a nice surprise that housekeeping came daily as part of the rental price. The cook, Danny prepared the most fabulous meals each night. The beds were comfortable, the AC worked well and overall the property was a great fit for a large group or family with young adults needing a little of their own space. The only draw back is lack of direct beach access right from the house, it is very rocky directly from the property but beach access is just a few minutes away.

Casa Iguana was beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

I took my family (7 adults) to Casa Iguana June 24th to July 1st and it is absolutely beautiful.

Casa Iguana is very well kept and supplied. Both the house and Casita have water coolers with plenty of water for the whole stay plenty of dishes glasses and most anything else you need.

When we arrived Daniel (the house/grounds manager/cook) had chips, salsa, and Guacamole ready and waiting for us and even some cold beer in the fridge. The pool was warm and clean and even had a couple of "Floaties" in it. we spent a lot of time at the house and hanging out in the private outdoor areas.

Daniel is wonderful! He was always around and helping out, there is a menu in the main house and you can pick what you want and he will make it. You are responsible for the cost of the food and transportation to the store plus tipping Daniel for his work. We had Daniel cook three dinners and one breakfast for us and the food was fantastic! As good or better than any of the restaurants we ate at.

I will definitely go back to Casa Iguana again if I can sometime soon, maybe with a group of friends this time. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms is perfect for a small group.
