This home is remarkable!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved being here. Waking up to the sounds of birds and jungle and looking out through treetops was unforgettable! There was so much space for seven of us. It was a quiet relaxing haven at the end of the day exploring the amazing sights around Akumal. Truly one of the best vacations we have had. Louise was very helpful pointing out many places to eat and visit and how to get around. Thank you again!

Beautiful and Relaxing Home, lacking some basics

  • 5 of 5

This home is really special, private, clean, comfortable, and luxurious. I agree with the positive comments in other reviews and my criticisms are slight. I would take off 1/2 a star for the small things that this home was missing: no welcome instructions, no maps, no resort information, guides, etc... The kitchen was missing some basics, and cleaning supplies were scarce; there was no dish soap or any clean sponges and no detergent for the dishwashing machine (we had to beg some from a generous neighbor, since it is very hard to find in this part of the world.) Manuel, the friendly property manager, came by and took care of our needs, he offered great advice and was very easy to work with.

The property is very safe and well maintained. The TAO community is a super nice place to visit, very modern with a zen vibe. We enjoyed the wellness center and beach club as well as trips to Tulum and Akumal playa and pueblo for groceries.

Another thing that would be great to know in advance is how TAO guests are able to make use of the specific Bahia Principe Resort facilities and what the costs are. There is an info sheet that clearly outlines the relationship and it might be a nice addition to include it in this listing.

An absolute haven!

  • 5 of 5

Loved, loved, loved the beautiful home. Spacious and private for the three couples. Nice to have a washer and dryer available to use so that we didn't have to pack too much. Very comfortable beds. We just wished we would have had more time to spend there. We would definitely want to come back someday!

Beautiful, modern, well-appointed house!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, along with 5 children, stayed in this home for a week in Dec. The house is great! Clean linens, very comfortable beds and plenty of towels. The kitchen is well equipped and there was plenty of space for everyone. The community pool is within walking distance. The shuttle to the beach is a bit far. We drove our rental car to the club house to catch a ride. Our plan for the week was a lot of day trips/tours in Playa del Carmen and Tulum, so we found the location in Akumal to be ideal. Two of our days were spent at the resort, enjoying the beach. We purchased all-inclusive day passes and took a break from cooking. Louise was great to deal with! She is very helpful and responsive. We would recommend her home to others.

We had a group of 9 stay for 10 days in February 2016. The house was as pictured: an absolute paradise. The three bedrooms accommodated three couples and the fold-out office bed slept my two adult sisters. The three bathrooms were nice. The master bathroom had a wonderful jacuzzi tub. The full kitchen, washer and dryer, and outdoor dipping pool were a wonder addition as well. The owners provided plenty of towels, cooking equipment, wine, movies, and wifi.

The location of the house was wonderfully located within a quick drive to the cities of Akumal and Tulum. The Tao wellness center was a short walk from the house and had a lovely gym, lap pool, and yoga classes. Being apart of the Bahia resort allowed for amazing amenities, some included some at an extra cost, such as inclusive meals, golf, pools, beach, water activates, shows, etc.

Overall the house provided an perfect quiet, calming environment, yet was close enough to the the towns and resort. We can't wait to come back soon!!!

5 Star luxury gated community on challenging, gorgeous, championship Robert Trent Jones Jr designed golf course nestled in the jungle and among cenotes. One of the best in all of Mexico. The community is called Tao Inspired Living and has access to a Wellness Ctr with activities, specialized spa services, wellness events, yoga classes, cooking classes, Mayan Temazcal sweat lodge, and more... some services are at additional cost, some not. Tao is nestled in the lush Gran Bahia Principe Residence and Golf Resort and has access to the beach, wonderful hotels and amenities (day pass required for hotel buffets and restaurants). Rent a catamaran, go parasailing or swim with dolphins. Just some of the activities available on site. Akumal is in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen where you can shop, dine and party, or take a ferry to Cozumel, one of the best scuba diving and snorkeling spots in the world. 30 minutes in the other direction is the quaint town of Tulum the site of Bachelor in Paradise 2014 and still a favourite spot for hippies and laid back. Visit the famous Mayan ruins on the most beautiful beach. Great local cuisine and culture abounds. Huge and famous eco parks are close by, including Xel Ha, Xcaret, and Xplor. Spend a day there that you won't forget. So many activities and things to do and see. A car is recommended.
