  • Comfort and class in relative seclusion on your own beach

    "If you're the kind of vacationer who prefers a choose-your-own-adventure style of travel while still enjoying a comfortable setting, this property may be what you're looking for. There are not too many better properties we could find in the area. I highly recommend it, but for one thing which I'll speak to: A beautiful house on the best beach in the area. If we saw 5 people on the beach all day we were surprised. Evenings on the balcony or patio were quiet and peaceful. A ton of little details and care were taken for the property, which really make the place feel like home for your time there. The on-site staff are there when you need something, but will leave you to yourself when you don't. Things to note: Because of the far-removed nature of this property, and location in an eco-reserve, conservation of resources is necessary. That mostly means watch how much water you use. No AC, but it is not needed with the sea-breeze blowing through. You'll need your own car, and I recommend an SUV for comfort. Groceries in town are your best bet for supplies (buy lots of bottled water), we chose to grab what we needed on the way in and again while out on tours. Beyond that, definitely check out the amazing dining options in the Tulum hotel zone or beyond. Location is a relatively safe area for travel, but common sense and awareness should prevail when on vacation ... especially so far out of the way. There are critters all around ... not to be alarming, just aware. Giant iguanas or monitors are the most obvious (and of course, mosquitoes and little pests), but we saw a tarantula the size of a large hand and a 7-8 foot snake crossing the road one night. I'm sure larger unseen critters lurk in the jungle at night. I don't consider any of the above as a negative, but you should go in with eyes open. Beautiful hooded orioles sang outside our windows every morning! The only negative ... and it is hard to call it a negative when we had such an amazing vacation property ... would be the beds. Still a 5 star rating, and my wife and I would definitely like to return. Just note the beds pictured above are doubles, and for 2 adults it is a little cramped for my tastes. My wife and I traveled alone and ended up sleeping in separate rooms after the first night. We're not big people! If we were to return I'd be more interested if the beds were upsized to queen, there should be space in the rooms. ... Small nitpicky thing in an otherwise fabulous getaway!"

  • Great location on the beach

    "We had a great time at Casa Palapa in August 2016. Prior to staying at the property, my biggest reservation was that the owner didn't offer online booking through VRBO's checkout so I wasn't eligible for the "Book with Confidence Guarantee." The pricing seemed competitive for the area, so I felt uneasy about not having the guarantee in this age of scams, but we went forward anyway. Thankfully everything was as pictured and as described with only positive surprises. The home is super clean (the cleaning woman comes every morning but Sunday and spends hours), and the view is amazing! It felt like our own private beach and we did not have any issues with excessive seaweed in August. Snorkeling was great directly in front of the house. The man who takes care of the grounds raked the sand every morning and cut us fresh coconuts to drink from the beautiful grove of coconut trees that surprised us as being the front yard of the house. We didn't see any turtles, but saw tracks in the morning of where some came up to the house overnight. We paid $75 for Pio's wife Luz to cook us dinner the first night. We had 5 adults, and she gave enough food (chicken, cauliflower, rice, veggies, pico and guac for appetizer) for 10 and it was tasty. Unfortunately the fridge didn't feel reliable enough to hold leftovers (I think we lost power one night possibly). My ONLY complaint is really for Mexico in August. It's hot, so the house got very warm and the only place to find relief is in the breezy Palapa (very comfortable there) or the air conditioned upstairs bedrooms. The owner mentioned he is considering putting in a 1st floor A/C unit. If that happens, zero complaints on the house. We may be back some day!"

  • Family vacation of a lifetime!!!

    "A picture of our trip now resides in a prominent place on my desk at work and in our home that conjures up day dreams and much needed remembrance during everyday life of the most memorable family vacation of our lives. Our family spans three generations and our past traditional family vacation never had the luxury of having full time daily housekeeping, an incredible chef makeing every meal and drink we could possible want and doing all the shopping! Having all these luuxries afforded us the ability to focus on the quality time, talk and adventures that this villa provided us as a family to enjoy. The house keeper was the kindest person you could ask to be able to relate to your grandchildren. And the chef put all the women at ease about not needing to cook or go out with his fabulous dishes and drinks. My favorite was the fresh grilled fish. The private beach area with the hammocks and the lounge chairs, the kayaks and the third floor balcony and well as the six porches provided the most inviting private space for our family to roam behind a fenced and very private area. This feeling of being in paradise fostered some much anticipated and essential one on one conversations that contributed to the shaping of my family’s future. As a true Hacienda located on huge lot KASS unfolded each day new and exciting individual and family living areas like none I have every experienced on vacation. Privacy and safety were right up there with comfort. We felt free to let the children roam like we did when we were children. So they would come back and report on the new things like turtles and birds that they had never seen with welcomed enthusiasm. The great room area is like the most luxurious hotel lobby one has ever been in with authentic antiques , one of a kind Mayan and Greek museum quality art, sculptures and furnishings that invited authentic interactions. We have family laughter in there like I have never experienced. I was so glad to finally be staying someplace that looked like I was staying is at a large luxurious Hacienda of past years and not another rental with most the of same kinds of furnishing and layout that one can experience up and down this beach in most of the rentals. The test of what it meant to my family can be seen in how often the youngest keep asking for when are we going back. They felt comfort in the water because the water was crystal clear, there was none of the seaweed that other beaches have been experiencing, the"

  • Casa Gray is Fantastic!

    "Casa Gray is a fantastic place on the best beach in Akumal. After wonderful snorkeling right in front of the house, relax in the pool or in the hammock under the palm trees. Stroll on over to the beach bar, two doors down, for a margarita or cold drink and some fish tacos. I have stayed there four times with no complaints, but now after the recent renovations, including new air conditioners in the bedrooms, water pressure increase, new patio furniture, and new paint, it is now truly heaven on Earth. I would highly recommend this property for your next getaway."
