About the property

two bedrooms + 1open loft, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, full AC, right at the beach

A charming and comfortable beachfront cottage, located at Jade Bay in Akumal, Riviera Maya, Mexico. The cottage is privately located in the beautiful tropical garden of a private gated property. Its terrace is only 15 yards from the beach and a 10 minute beach walk from Akumal Village. A choice of cozy restaurants will satisfy your appetite. Akumal, 'the place of the turtles', is located between Playa del Carmen with its European flavoured vivid night life and Tulum with its historical Maya ruins. Carpark, private gate, and much more. To find out more visit our website, see link in 'Further Details' below.

Beautiful Beachfront Cottage: Usually, beach front villas along the Riviera Maya are big and not meant for a couple or small family to stay, they have usually 5+ bedrooms. The weekly rates are high and not affordable unless you shop around to fill the beds. Our Cottage offers you the Caribbean beachfront joy, the privacy of your own secluded tropical garden and beachfront. An affordable alternative in paradise!

How to Get There: Conveniently located close to the highway 307 from Cancun to Tulum, exit Las Villas Akumal, km 253. Isla Escape can be reached by public transportation with a transfer to the Paradas Continuas or a taxi at Playa del Carmen. All major car rental companies are present at Cancun airport. Car rental is also available at Akumal. Detailed routing will be provided with your booking confirmation through our website.

Where to Go, What to Do: This holiday destination offers a great variety of cultural, historical and leisure activities. If you don`t like 'activities' you may simply lay back and relax on the terrace or the beach with a good book and the ever lasting sound of the ocean. For an extensive tour and information of the area, please visit our website.

getting a real break

  • 5 of 5

Isla Escape honours it's name. Here nothing is missing to realize your wish to escape hectic life and completely rewind. We have enjoyed our 10 day stay in December under a stark blue sky and with the sound of the nearby ocean very much. The Cottage is realy complete, clean, very well maintained and located in beautiful nature a few steps away from a clean beach that appeared to be a very popular jogging area. Diving opportunities and a popular snorkeling site, a variety of restaurants and shopping, all at beach-walking distance. We enjoyed the privacy of the garden and the beachfront so much that we hesitated to go out. Tulum and Playa del Carmen nearby, two places with a total different character and worthwile to hang around. We have found Isla Escape totally in accordance with what is advertised on Homeaway and the IslaEscape website. The owners, who live next door, were a real asset, kind and caring. We loved Isla Escape and would recommend everybody to consider the beauty of this place. The cottage is small and is in our opinion comfortable for maximum four persons and OK for kids as well.

Paradise Found!!

  • 5 of 5

Isla Escape is our favorite HomeAway/VRBO find to date! The setting is incredibly beautiful. The hospitality shown by Jacob, Margarita and Ismael made this trip even more special. From the groceries left in the fridge... to the bday bottle of vino.. to the kids pool set up for our 4 daughters...wow! It was all just wonderful. It was the perfect place for my family of 6. Thank you so much for offering your lovely home, Jacob and Kim! We plan to return.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had the best time here. The house had all the things to get us started when we got there. It was in walking distance on the beach to the town center and the view is fantastic. The beds were comfortable and I really enjoyed having so much hot water at a beach house. We were very impressed and would go back in a second. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Truly AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing!! We had the opportunity to spend time in both of the owner's homes and loved them both. It was our last vacation before our youngest girls (twins) went off to college and it made for great memories. We were greeted with open arms by Jacob. His staff and Margarita took very good care of us. I will miss my Tina and Bozo. Will definitely be back to visit them all. Tina and Bozo can always come live with me!!
