Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Akumal - Casa Kukulcan

Huge villa next to South Akumal, sleeps 8-16, 6 Bedrooms 5.5 baths

'..the house is absolutely gorgeous and we're all very happy'

'….. your location is spectacular and yet very convenient to Akumal and Tulum'

'a beautiful home in a great location

Walk into the ocean and reef from this beachfront 6 BR (4 suites plus studio plus 1 other BR. 8500 sq feet of beautiful integrated indoor and outdoor living areas offering ocean and sunrise / sunset views from its suites, balconies and rooftop. Ocean views and breezes are created in most rooms through large windows and many recessing or sliding doors.

This newly constructed villa was designed by the most cutting edge architect in the area with soaring ceilings.

The house is about 2 to 3 times the square footage of most houses in the area. There are 6 air conditioned bedrooms in total. There are 4 suites with full baths. The main master suite is huge with Jacuzzi tub and double showers. Three of the suites have ocean and jungle (sunrise and sunset) views with access to broad balconies and verandahs. The 4th suite has not have jungle / sunset views but is located on the ocean side with magnificent views and sliding pocket doors onto a large balcony. The 4 suites sleep 8 adults easily and 3 have space for additional beds. In addition, on the ground level of the house is an apartment with a full bath that will sleep 3 and another bedroom that will sleep 3 with a toilet and wash basin but no bath.

The house is located on the south side of South Akumal bay which has a white sand beach fringed by coconut trees and wide reef. There is a small strip of beach in front of the house next to the water, but the main beach at South Akumal is 100 yards to the north along a sandy track by the water. It is a beautiful, quiet, secluded and usually deserted. The large beautiful reef is ideal for snorkeling and kayaking. The much busier Akumal beach can be overcrowded and its reef overused.

The second long white sand beach - Akumal Aventuras is about 400 yards further south.

The water is very close to our house. Just outside our property is a sandy strip then flat rocks which are easy to walk across. You step off these onto a shallow sandy bottom. This entrance point to the bay is the closest and best access to the unspoiled reef at South Akumal. It is about 50 yards from this point via a sandy shallow lagoon (2 feet) and protected part of the bay which is also a good area for learners / children. We also launch our kayaks from here.

We have a house manager who speaks very good English and will arrange anything for you including chefs and cooks. We also have a maid and handy man who will look after you.

Please check out the attached video in this listing.

Great Spot in Akumal

  • 5 of 5

My party of 9 adults enjoyed a week at this casa and the place exceeded our expectations. The home was easy to get to and the town of Akumal was less than a 5 minute drive when provisions were needed. The staff was accommodating. The casa is well appointed and stocked to provide everything a family or large party could need for an enjoyable vacation. We cooked several nights and the large kitchen accommodated many cooks in the kitchen. We BBQed a few times out by the pool overlooking the ocean which is always a treat and we also used the chef service that was arranged by the local staff and were pleased with the food, communication, and convenience. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all comfortable and clean. The view from the decks are amazing and one can kill a day or three without ever leaving the property. The walk to Akumal for snorkeling, lunch, or drinks is about 30 minutes and a nice beach walk. We felt very safe during our stay as the night security guard introduced himself on the first day. I would highly recommend this property to a large group or a few families looking for a casa in the Akumal area. I have stayed in many a vacation home and this one ranks up towards the top. The kitchen was the best stocked I have had the pleasure of cooking in while abroad. A great time was had by our party.

A relaxing week by the sea

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8, from ages 17-75, stayed at the casa for one amazing week. As a matter of fact, we are still here (leaving tomorrow). We have vacationed in the area for 20 years. We have done the all inclusive options but decided we wanted a comfortable, laid back option for our growing family, so we could all stay together. This property is at the top of our list. Mike was quick to respond to our emails prior to the trip and very easy to work with. The staff at the property is hard working and friendly...we can't say enough about how comfortable they made our family. The property manager was easy to reach and stopped by from time to time to make sure we were happy. The home is gorgeous and close to activities and restauants, so when we wanted activity, it was easy to find! Mostly, we enjoyed the pool, walking the beach all the way to Akumal, kayaking and snorkeling right by the casa, the sound of the surf, and the most comfortable bed I've ever had in Mexico. We can't wait to return! Thanks Mike, for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful, private home, great location

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place! We so enjoyed our stay for 8 days with 9 people. Your staff was wonderful and took great care of us. The house is perfect for a group of our size. There is plenty of space to socialize together, relax in isolation or talk in small groups. The rooftop was our groups favorite meeting spot for a coctail just before sunset.The large tables (both in and outside) easily accomodated everyone for meals and games. The house is in a great location – we alternately walked or took a quick drive into Akumal village for a meal or activity. It's was a short walk to a beach and wonderful snorkeling.Tulum’s grocery stores were convenient.

The information we recieved from the owner, prior to arrival was very thorough.

Wonderful house and a great location for a vacation. I’d recommend it to anyone. We'll be back!

Ideal Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Casa Kukulcan for 7 days with 12 adults and we had a fantastic experience. The house is stunning and the location is fabulous. There was more than enough room for all of us and we truly took advantage of what the house had to offer. Snorkeling in front of the house was a treat as was lounging in the pool. Each of the master bedrooms have great bathroom amenities. The showers were a perfect place to relax after a beach day. We cooked most of our meals and the grill/kitchen made it a pleasure to do so.

What makes Casa Kukulcan truly special is the staff. They were incredibly helpful, kind and made us all feel right at home. If we had any questions, they always had the answers. The maid was sweet and thorough, leaving the house immaculately clean. I would definitely stay at Casa Kukulcan again. Make sure to take advantage of watching the sunrise and sunsets on the roof deck!

Great House, Great Location, Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely give the house and staff five stars. The owner, Mike, was easy to work with and answered all my questions. He also provided an amazing amount of documents via email about the house, the location, activities, where to shop and so much more.

The house is located in a small group of houses but it is secluded and quiet. It is a beautiful house with four large bedrooms and each bedroom has a full bath and separate AC units. Very comfortable sleeping.

A really fun plus is the roof access with a full 360-degree view of the entire area. Stunning views of the waves hitting the reef and rolling into the protected bay and the low jungle to the west and sunsets. A great place to relax at anytime of the day. With no light pollution, stargazing was a real treat.

The kitchen was well equipped with more than enough bowls, dishes, glasses, pots, pans, etc. for cooking any meal. Carlos, the local house manager, was available by phone and email before we arrived and worked with us to arrange details for dinner, activities and even New Years Eve. In addition, he was very patient with us as we made changes with our arrangements and waiting for us as we arrived late. The Maintenance person and grounds keeper, who was also named Carlos, was onsite every morning and made sure we had access to everything including the snorkel gear and kayaks.

We had a great time kayaking in the water right off the beach from the house and though the beach at the house is not swimmable due to the rocks (beautiful and natural tide pools) access to the swimmable beach was a short two-minute walk to the north.

During our stay we had housekeeping most days (on our schedule) provided by the charming Maria. She was very thorough and accommodating to some of our late sleeping habits. I also want to note that every evening, Lucio arrived and throughout the night patrolled the grounds and the beach to provide security to the property. Throughout our vacation, we never felt uncomfortable or at risk anytime or anywhere in the area. Lucio even helped us unload our luggage when we arrived.

One of the real treats was to arrange for the chef recommended by Carlos to come in and prepare dinner. The food was excellent and when compared to a dinner out with eight people, cheaper and more convenient

I highly recommend Casa Kukulcan.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your wonderful review. I have passed it on to the staff. I just wanted to note for all readers that the number of bedrooms is 6 not 4. The guest numbers for this rental used only the 4 suites, whereas there are 2 additional bedrooms on the ground floor.

This place definitely gets 5 stars from us. The design of the house was incredible and it is very clear that it was done so with intentions. The setting is amazing and the staff that took care of the premises were exceptional. We would return here without question.
