  • Excellent location, amenities, and service!

    "Our family of four (including 2 children ages 6 and 8) spent 8 relaxing days enjoying the patio, pool, neighbors, view, and the sound of the waves from Mi Casa Del Mar A1. Staying on the first floor turned out to be perfect for our family; unlike in years past where we stayed on higher floors, the 1st floor location saved us from lugging all of our stuff up and down the stairs each time the girls wanted to swim or feed the iguanas. The condo was very comfortable. It included a "catch-all" closet with items like lifejackets for the girls...a huge convenience for us. The internet worked well enough for us to stream videos for the girls in the late evenings. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfy, and the ACs worked great. The staff was attentive and responsive as usual - a small crack developed in the coffee pot and, without us pointing it out, they replaced it. We left out a small christmas tree with the battery pack open (we were planning on going to the store to get batteries) and Alex showed up the same day with a new pack of batteries for us. Bottom line, the service was amazing. We visited all of our regular haunts, which were in easy walking distance from the condo...La Buena Vida (we walked there by road and shoreline...so fun!), Lucy's/Turtle Bay Bakery, and Lol-ha. Our "first time" visits included Xelha (a VERY clean and well-run operation...we had a great time), the Tulum ruins and Yal-Ku lagoon (wow!!). The girls were both old enough to enjoy snorkeling so we spent several mornings swimming with the wildlife in the bay (countless turtles, varied fish, stingray, etc). We even saw a barracuda at Xelha...yikes!! We bought a basketball and spent several afternoons playing on the Akumal court. Hans was a great host, quick to respond to questions leading up to our visit, and very accommodating with our requests. We visit Akumal every couple of years and always stay at Mi Casa Del Mar (because of location and amenities). This was our first year to rent A1 but, given our experience, we plan on renting Hans' condo again."

  • Beautiful Condo and Amazing View!

    "My husband and I just had a wonderful experience staying in this Condo. The view is just spectacular! beautiful and private; you are definitely hit with the wow factor as soon as you are standing in front of that magnificent view and enjoying the cooling breeze. The condo has absolutely everything you may need for your stay. It truly felt like home away from home. It is extremely cozy, comfortable, right in front of Akumal Bay, in a very serene section, but a couple of minutes away from the main action of Akumal Beach, where people go to swim with the turtles. We stayed for 9 days, and probably six out of those nine days we had the beach to ourselves. You can opt to swim right in front of your condo and enjoy serene privacy, or you can drive approximately 5 minutes to the entrance to swim with the turtles. Response from Whitney was prompt via email, and she and her husband did everything to make our stay at the condo a great experience. The Wi-Fi signal was strong throughout and we didn’t have any blackouts. There is no conventional cable in the condo, but the main TV has Roku for the premium channels like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, HBO GO, Pandora, etc.; however, you need to already have an account with those services to be able to watch their content through the Roku. I happened to bring my Chromecast which I connected to one of the TV’s HDMI and it worked great; again, the Wi-Fi signal was strong enough to seamlessly cast from my smartphone/laptop to the TV. With the windows open, the tropical breeze flows deliciously throughout the condo and there were only a few nights that we felt the need to turn on the AC in the main area. There is already drinking water in the Condo which was replenished by the cleaning lady, Letty, whom was wonderful. We procured her services to have our clothes washed a couple of days before our return. She will knock on the door to ask if you would like cleaning service, and it is up to you how often you want it. We asked her to come by on the days we knew we were going to be out all day, and opted out for those days that we wanted to sleep in late and just relax. It was an amazing experience, perfect for romantic getaway and I recommend this condo for anyone that doesn’t have a problem going up the stairs to the third floor. I absolutely assure you that you will love it as much as we did."

  • New, well-cared for condo

    "The condo is located in a very new development and it extremely cared for. We had a great stay that was made much better by the staff from Gate48 Vacations - property managers. Maria and Manuel answered all our questions, made certain we had everything we needed and were so easy and efficient to deal with. We had no complaints regarding the condo. It is new, the appliances are top quality and everything worked very well but Maria was certainly right when she advocated for us to rent a vehicle during our stay. The condo is located on a very large property and the community shuttles do not run after 5:00 pm and only once every hour even during the day. The holiday was perfect but, if using this location, a car is a definite bonus. My husband did golf the course and had very positive reviews on it as well."

  • Lovely home

    "We LOVED everything about this home. Three bedroom and three bathrooms, upper rooftop terrace where we enjoyed our morning coffees and our evening happy hour in a beautiful jungle location. Steps from the beach, and a lovely stroll to Akumal Bay, where we snorkeled and swam with the turtles. Lots of fabulous restaurants to choose from at the bay, so I rarely had to cook! But the kitchen is VERY well-appointed for the meals we did cook! Six-burner gas range, microwave, full set of pots and pans, the essential corkscrew, chilled water cooler, and dishwasher! No need to bring two suitcases...there is a washer and dryer for your convenience! The two second-floor bedrooms each have their own ensuite. Your choice of either the air conditioner or the ceiling fan in each of the three bedrooms! Located in a quiet residential area, away from the madding crowds of Cancun, but close enough to Playa del Carmen and Tulum to have a great time exploring there. You could also choose to swim or snorkel in a different cenote every day. Some even offer scuba diving if you are so inclined! A very short walk to the highway will let you connect with an unending "parade" of collectivos - 15-passenger vans that will take you anywhere from Tulum to Playa del Carmen for only a few pesos. A great way to get around the area, and much cheaper than a taxi. There are tours available for the many theme parks in the area; Xcaret, Xplor, Xel-Ha to name a few. We spent many of our days just enjoying the beach, but if you want to Zip Line or snuba check out the parks! We loved our time here, and can't wait to come back!"
