Overview

About the property

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.

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 6 adults and 3 children recently stayed at Casa Kukulcan. The moment we walked into the property, we were met with a stunning view of blue waters and palm trees. The house was perfect for us, plenty of room for everyone to have a separate space, yet with great spaces for everyone to be together.

All of the rooms were exceptionally clean and well-appointed. The views from the outdoor bedroom terraces and the roof were made for relaxing. The kitchen was stocked with all of the kitchenware we needed for preparing meals. The outdoor grill area was terrific and perfect for outdoor eating.

Carlos I and II were very helpful and Elvira did a great job keeping the villa clean (no small feat with 3 young children). The pool was in tip-top shape, and we spent much of our time there.

We walked to the nearby beach for snorkeling and playing in the sand. We saw some of the turtles and rays for which Akumal is known and had the reef to ourselves.

We ate out at the nearby restaurants in Akumal, especially enjoying La Buena Vida. A visit to the monkey sanctuary was an unexpected pleasure for the members of our group who tried it.

We were very happy with our booking of Casa Kukulcan. The owner, Mike, was helpful from the beginning, always answering emails promptly and providing us with an exceptional amount of information about the property and the area. We found the house to be exactly as described- a beautiful getaway retreat.

Thanks for a great vacation!

Great property in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

13 of us stayed in this wonderful house for 7 days. The views from the house are spectacular, and the beach is just a few steps away from the back door. Almost every room has its own en suite bathroom and are all a great size. The roof deck offers spectacular views of the ocean during the day, and a beautiful starry sky at night. The staff was very helpful and were very willing to help out if needed. The house is located in Akumal which has a few delicious restaurants right on the beach and a small grocery store. Tulum is a short drive away and has an incredible sandy beach with clear water, as well as more places to eat, drink, shop, and some good live music at night. The house never felt crowded even with our large group. We had a chef come in two nights to make some really nice local Mexican cuisine, and it was very reasonably priced. The furnishings in the house are a bit dated and worn in some places, but this doesn't distract from the experience at all and we had no complaints! Great stay for a week!

Lovely house in a peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

First off, the house is quite lovely. It's at the end of a quiet street next to other luxury houses. We were there of Christmas and most of the other houses seemed unoccupied. The beach was right in front of the house and largely empty (we saw 1-2 other people per day). The 4 bedrooms in the main house are amazing and all of the public areas were grand and delightful. The two bedrooms in the 'basement' are dark and a little depressing. The kitchen was wonderful to cook in. It could fit pretty much all of us (11 family members from three generations). The pots and pans and utensils were lacking (the owners must not cook), but there were plenty of plates and cups and stuff. The power went out a couple of times and we had a friendly mouse, but other than that the place was perfect for our needs.

We loved the ruins in Coba, the Akumal Monkey Sanctuary, Sac Actun, the Xel-Ha amusement park, Hartwood (in Tulum) and the beach in Tulum.

Carlos (the manager) was AWESOME. Friendly, clear english, helpful, responsive, etc. We talked to him or texted every few days with an issue and he always resolved them immediately. Super lucky. There was also another Carlos who tended to the garden, a housekeeper and a security guard all of whom were friendly and competent, but since we didn't share a language there wasn't much communication there.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. It was very nice. I just want to comment on the negatives: 1. You are correct the ground floor bedrooms 5 and 6 are nowhere near as good as the 4 suites in the house. We make sure we cover this in our literature and phone calls. 2. We have ample pots and fry plans. As you know the kitchen is very large with many draws / cupboards. Did you check the draws near the ovens? My wife enjoys cooking for ourselves and friends. 3. Regarding the power, the guest after you experienced the same issue. We have corrected the situation with an upgraded breaker board. 4. Re your friendly mouse. During our 5 years living at the house, we had occasional experiences with mice due to the fact that we chose to leave the doors open to the sea breezes and we have adjacent jungle. We place traps from time to time once we know we have a visitor.

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six spent a week here and had a wonderful time. The home is very comfortable and clean. The staff was helpful and polite. Akumal is a cool village with excellent restaurants and a fun vibe.

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.
