About Kim and Andrew

We love to travel and have enjoyed many vacations soaking up the sun around the Caribbean. For the last few years, we've been dreaming of owning a vacation property in the Caribbean where we could get away to escape our cold Canadian winters, and retire there when that day comes. Last year we vacationed at the Gran Bahia Principe resort and absolutely fell in love with this beautiful part of the world. So much did we love it, that we jumped on an opportunity to buy this property. We're really looking forward to spending many happy, sun and fun filled days there with family and friends.

Kim and Andrew purchased this villa in 2016

Why Kim and Andrew chose Akumal

This property is perfect for a family getaway or for a group of friends. Whether you want to just kick back and relax, take in all the natural wonders of the area, or get out for some action and adventure, it's all here for you.

About 200 yards from the front door you'll find the TAO Beach Club boasting an infinity pool on the edge of the beach, a small restaurant, bar, showers, washrooms, lounging chairs, roof top terrace, and access to beautiful Akumal Bay. It's not uncommon to snorkel along side sea turtles on this beach. A short stroll down the beach in either direction are a couple of boutique resorts with restaurants where you can eat out if no one feels like cooking. Look around during the 15 minute walk along the beach to the charming beach town of Akumal, and feel that you are in paradise.

What makes this villa unique

Residents and guests of the TAO Ocean residences are entitled to all of the amenities offered by Grand Bahia Principe Tulum and Sian Ka'an, as well as the TAO Inspired Living complex. Tucked in among the natural splendor of the Riviera Maya, this complex was designed and created to enhance and inspire holistic wellness. The Wellness Center is a 5 minute ride away and is the hub of activity. Here you'll find a variety of unique benefits and programs in fitness, inner peace, creative arts, and lifelong learning to foster balanced living and well-being. The center consists of a complete gym, yoga and meditation areas, two salt water lap pools, massage and energy treatment facilities, and two infinity pools. You'll also find an eco boutique, and a selection of rejuvenating treatments and bodywork, including the region's most amazing Temazcal (sweat lodge) where participants are guided through a powerful ceremony of release. 120 acres of jungle land with hiking and walking trails, make for a very serene walk to take in the abundance of flora and fauna. The Center also hosts global retreats in its event facilities led by celebrated authors and teachers.

Owner's Response: Hello James, Thank you for your feedback. Sorry you had experienced issues with the AC, these units are serviced every 3-4 months. We left the Villa the day you arrived and the AC was working fine, and the guests that left the villa yesterday didn’t mention and issues with the AC. I wish you would’ve contacted us during your stay and we would’ve had someone come and take a look at it. Warm Regards, Kim and Andrew

Outstanding condo

  • 5 of 5

This like new condo was perfect for 3 couples. Clean and quiet and a bonus is free access to all the Tao facilities which include lap pools, exercise room, yoga classes, cafe and more. Access to the beach is an easy 2 minute walk. Communication with the owners was very easy via email and they provide a very informative FAQs on the condo and surrounding area.

We stayed in March and it was just what we were looking for. I looked at a lot of the Villas in this complex and by far Mayan Riviera Ocean Villa was the best I saw. The decor was tasteful, modern and beautiful. Every room had a wonderful view of the landscape and the house was clean and very private. Also Kim and Andrew respond immediately and Rita their estate manger is kind, helpful and available for whatever you need.

Book This House if it is Available, It worth it!

Amazing property and fantastic attention!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay!

Everything was perfect: Cleanliness, maintenance, customer service... you name it. Kim and Andrew made sure that we had everything we needed as soon as we stepped into the house: air conditioning and TV controls, Wi-Fi access, jacuzzi instructions...

The place was flawless… perfectly clean and in a perfect shape. There were also property managers (hired by Kim and Andrew) always around to make sure we had everything we needed… they left the freezer full with ice and actually brought us a cooler without us even asking for it so we could have fresh beverages if we decided to walk to the beach!

Even before arriving, Kim and Andrew were always in touch sending us a welcome booklet with everything we needed to know about the Mayan Riviera and letting us know the things we could bring with us prior to our arrival.

All in all, a fantastic experience! It was worth every dime!

I would definitely not only recommend this property to friends and relatives, but also rent it again if I decide to come back to Akumal. Hands down!

Akumal TAO Ocean Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Reservation process was efficient. Kim was extremely responsive to my inquiries about the property throughout the booking process. Check-in was well arranged and smooth. TAO Ocean is a new development that offers high quality amenities. The 3-level penthouse offers stunning 360 view of Akumal bay and forest. It sits in a calm residential neighborhood with a short walk to the beach. Just a fantastic experience. Highly recommended!

The Riviera Maya is one of the world’s top destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling. The expansive Mesoamerican Reef is just off the coast and is home to a dizzying array of marine life including colorful tropical fish, sea turtles, manta rays, dolphins and whale sharks. You can also go snorkeling and cave diving in the many cenotes (underground sink holes) that are unique to this Yucatan Peninsula. Great snorkeling and diving are just steps away from Ocean Villa and many guided excursions are readily available, close by, and reasonably priced. Other water sporting activities include boating, fishing, deep sea fishing, parasailing, and catamaran tours to name a few.

The area offers several eco-archaeological adventure parks where you can take a journey of discovery into some of the most breathtaking natural wonders in Mexico. Xcaret, Xplor, and Xel Ha are 3 of the higher rated and most popular adventure theme parks, and are all within easy driving distance. Here you can explore mystical caves, learn about the Mayan culture, take in entertaining shows, and more for the price of a single admission. Distances to Xcaret & Xplor (32 km north); Xel-Ha (12 km north). For all the magical splendor of the caves, cenotes, and underground rivers in a more natural setting, visit the Aktun Chen National Park (10 km south west). Or if you are a fearless adventurer, check out Hidden Worlds Adventure Park (10 km south), but be sure to read the reviews on Trip Advisor first to understand if this one’s for you.

No trip to the Riviera Maya is complete without a visit to any of the ancient Mayan cities scattered throughout the Yucatan jungle. The awe inspiring Mayan ruins provide a deeper understanding of the rich Mexican history and culture. The coastline ruins of Tulum are one of the more significant cities in Mayan history and are the closest (22 km south). Still within easy reach are the inland ruins of Coba (70 km west) with many more structures to explore. Chichan Itza, the ultimate Mayan ruins are 175 km or 2.5 hrs by car or tour bus.

Beaches! This area is embarrassingly rich in prototypical Caribbean paradise beaches. Our direct access to the ocean is no exception and retains respect for the natural beauty of the environment. “Place of the turtles” in the Mayan language, world famous Akumal beach is just a short walk away. Beneath the crystal clear waters you'll find a reef, making it the perfect beach for swimming, diving, and snorkeling. The beach at Tulum has been rated the best beach in Mexico and one of the top five beaches in the world according to the Traveler's Choice Awards by TripAdvisor. It is only 22 km and great excursions can be booked together with admission to the ruins.

In Playa del Carmen (35 km north), take a stroll along the pedestrian Fifth Avenue strip, locally known as Quinta Avenida. La Quinta is the place to see and be seen. By day it’s packed with people browsing the shops and boutiques; by night roving musicians entertain diners in the many restaurants and bars. Playa del Carmen is one of the Riviera Maya’s top culinary destinations where you’ll find everything from street tacos to five-star restaurants serving up their own unique takes on traditional Mayan and international cuisine. As the evening progresses, La Quinta gyrates to the sounds of rock, salsa and reggae as people flock to the bars and nightclubs. Ferry service connects the Caribbean island of Cozumel with Playa del Carmen so you can easily enjoy a day trip out to the island.

Serious nature lovers will want to take a day trip to Sian Ka’an. Recognized as a biosphere reserve in 1986 and a UNESCO Heritage of Humanity Site in 1987, Sian Ka’an extends over 1.3 million acres. It is home to a variety of habitats including beaches, coral reef, low tropical forest, wetlands, savannas, dunes, cenotes and both freshwater and brackish lagoons. Over 300 species of birds and a multitude of other plants and animals inhabit the reserve.
