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!!!

Amazing property- the best of both worlds

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a beautiful place, inside the Bahia Principe Hotels complex just beside the golf course. I really feel confident recommending this location because everything was simply perfect. The house was exactly as pictured with fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, stylish furniture, 3 bedrooms (all with its own bathroom) and a studio with a sofa bed and a comfy living area. We also enjoyed the unlimited Wi-Fi and small pool to freshen up. And one of the bedrooms is on the lower floor which can be convenient for those with mobility issues.

Louise, the owner was very helpful, always on hand via e-mail or WhatsApp for any needs or questions and had everything in the house you could possibly need.

We were a family of 6 adults plus two children and we all enjoyed our time there. We would have breakfast at the home and went out and about afterwards every day. It's a perfect mix for the people who enjoy the conveniences of the all-inclusive resorts and the independent travelers. We took advantage of the all-inclusive day pass on one day and on other days we would take advantage of the buffet restaurants or the Tortuga restaurant at the resorts. On other days we would go to the many delicious restaurants nearby in Tulum or even Playa del Carmen. We visited the pyramids and Xel-ha and a couple of cenotes and nearby towns like Tulum and Valladolid. The kids had a blast at the waterpark in the Coba hotel while the adults enjoyed the golf courses, the nearby pool and gym at the wellness centre as well as the yoga classes.

Some of the privileges of renting at Tao:

- Golf at discounted rates

- Access to the resort's buffets - $35 with unlimited wine and drinks

- All inclusive - a $65 pass buys you breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks all day

We rented a car but on the days when the family members were enjoying different activities some would take the complimentary shuttles that run throughout the Bahia community every few minutes to the 4 resorts. All in all, we found the location beautiful, modern and clean and the location perfect for a family vacation- we just wish we could have stayed longer!

Paradise in Mexico

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this property along with another couple for two weeks. The home is large and easily accommodated the two couples ( would have been no problem adding another couple ). There is a huge master bedroom on the upper level which also includes a 2nd bedroom, den, washer & dryer, and a outside patio perfect for sun tanning. On the lower level there is a 3rd bedroom ( each bedroom has it's own attached shower etc.) and a massive open concept living / kitchen / dining room. The kitchen is well appointed with top notch appliances including a gas oven. The rear of the property is all windows looking out to the lanai and patio

which backs onto the golf course. The property is close to the TAO Community Centre which has a swimming pool, exercise facility and what we referred to as the ( Help Desk ) which was manned by a most friendly young man named Derek who was our go to guy during our stay. We usually started each day by visiting Derek to get advice on what was happening before we planned our outings. The property also includes a community Infinity Pool which was close to the property. At this location there was also a large barbeque that we made use of as well. One of the benefits of ownership ( including renters ) was the access to the Bahia Principe resorts. There are four of them which are accessible using the trolley system which runs regularly. At night we were able to take in the shows that each venue puts on which was quite enjoyable. We were not all the far from Playa del Carmen which was great for shopping and dining ( 2nd Avenue ). We also dined out at Akumal and Tulum beach restaurants which were very good and reasonably priced. Grocery stores were easy to find. We would recommend that visitors rent a vehicle. If you are a golfer the course on the property is very good and includes a pretty good practice facility which can be accessed without playing a round of golf if you so desire. The weather in Mexico is always great and so was this property. It was won of the better vacations we have taken and would highly recommend it to others.

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.
