About Ed Buchman

We purchased this home 20 years ago as a fun place to raise our family. As our family has grown, we find we still spend a month or so a year at Club Ed, usually some in summer some in winter. We have a few weeks a year that we make available for the rental market to enjoy our little piece of paradise.

Ed Buchman purchased this villa in 1995

Why Ed Buchman chose Akumal

Club Ed is the nicest home on the nicest beach. Our beach is wide and white, with soft sand. The Caribbean is steps away, with easy access. The snorkeling and swimming is wonderful.

We have Mexican high speed internet. This allows you to keep up with your news/business/sports/Facebook...., but not stream. Cell phones work most everywhere, and it's usually just a matter of you pre contacting your provider to be able to use your phone.

There are many great adventures, some minutes away, some hours,including cenotes, eco parks, caving, golfing, ruins, diving, or just strolling the white soft sand beach. It's easy to walk for hours up and down our beach.

Personally, I spend a fair amount of time in our private shaded hammocks, watching the beach strollers walk up and down.

What makes this villa unique

We have spent 20 years upgrading this house to become our home away from home. This is not your typical rental property, it is our home. We have furnished ClubEd with the finest option available, from linens to furniture, to kitchen amenities, to local handcrafts and art. The beach is just our our front door, with white soft sand and easy access to the Caribbean.

Our housekeeper, Rosa and our maintenance man, Rutilo, have been with us for 15 years. They are wonderful, and they are there to help make your visit just that much nicer. Rosa is a wonderful cook, and will prepare great local and regional fare for you with a days notice. They are there every day except Sunday.

Amazing inside and out. A non-stop ocean breeze, exquisite courtyard and beautiful ocean view.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent ONE FANTASTIC WEEK at Club Ed. My two children, their families and I had an amazing stay. All of us (including the kiddos 6 months to 10 years old) thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful pool. Rosa prepared many meals for us including chicken mole, chicken fajitas, chili relleno and chicken parmesan. We had fresh salsa and guacamole every day. Her flan melts in your mouth. Rosa made a grocery list (in espanol) of everything we needed for her, we made a list of our items we would need for the week, Rosa called us a taxi (who speaks English), he drove us to Tulum Chedraui and went inside with us to help us shop (which was a HUGE help). Having Rosa prepare our meals was the most convenient and economical way to go. Rosa, her daughter (Marsie), her son (didn’t catch his name) and Rutillio came everyday but Sunday to clean the house, clean the pool, clean up the garden and beach area. The house has everything you need (bedding, towels, pool towels, dishes, coffee maker, even has a couple of blue tooth speakers). A wonderful ocean breeze flowed through the villa. Ed is amazing and extremely helpful. Kerstin is awesome and helpful as well, she helped us arrange transport to and from Airport and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay at Club Ed again. Thank you (Muchas Gracias)!

Amazing family time at Club Ed

  • 5 of 5

Nice location. We had strong winds every day so didn't spend quality beach time. Lots of seaweed brought in by wind. House was clean, wonderful welcome dinner and fruit basket. We had a problem with a faucet and staff was easy to reach. Pool was great as the ocean was extremely choppy and to rough for the kids (again due to wind). We utilized recommended transportation. Very reliable. Cleaning staff changed out sheets and towels mid week. Rosa prepared our birthday dinner of chili rellanos and they were amazing. Her flan is to die for. Loved our family time under Casa de Ed's roof.

Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, it worked out very well for our group. The pool and beach were great, the home is a little distance from Akumal and a car is needed. Being away is also a good thing as the beach is not so busy. There are resorts at either end of the beach so people walk by on a regular basis but nobody ever set up in front of us. Enjoyed spending time in hammocks in the palapa. Snorkelling was great right in front of the house. Rosa prepared two meals for us and both were great. Would stay here again. Good for large family groups -we were three generations -or several couples.Ed was easy to reach and responded to all our questions in a timely matter.

Owner's Response: Glad your visit was a success. We find the separation from Akumal and other busy places to be a great advantage to Aventuras Akumal. Of course, Rosa is a special benefit everyone loves. We hope to see you again!!

Club Ed Delivers

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 7 day stay at Club Ed and seriously considered staying for another week.

The house is beautiful and all of the furnishings and kitchen supplies worked great for our party of 6. Being so close to the water with such great snorkeling on the inner reefs was a real treat. We saws LOTS of fish, one turtle and several rays. Thanks for making your kayak's and snorkeling gear available. This made it easy for our full group to go out together. The location south of Akumal is great - the beach is quiet with a fun beach bar - the Beached Bikini - with food less than 100 yards down the beach. It was a quick car ride to Akumal for other meals and not far at all to Tulum ruins/beach!!!, Cenote exploring and Sian Ka'an natural reserve. There were lots of swimming days (water shoes recommended) and the pool was very refreshing. We had a couple nice meals prepared by Rosa right at the house including a welcome Sunday arrival dinner. Rosa and all the other staff and property manager were very friendly and helpful. We all vowed to learn some Spanish before our next visit. Thanks for a beautiful week at your home.

Amazing location! Can’t wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We just spend Thanksgiving Week at Club Ed and had a wonderful time. We had a fantastic time swimming in pool and ocean. The location really can’t be beat. Easy access to the village of Akumal for great dining, scuba diving plus Rosa helping with laundry and cooking up her amazing food! What more could I ask for? Spectacular.

Had a lovely discussion with Rutilo. He was so helpful to us.

2017 Family and friends trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous property with 2 other families, 6 adults and 6 children ages 10 years to 2 years and everywhere in between. We all fell in love with Club Ed as well as the owners. They supply you with everything you need to know well ahead of time and leave nothing out. Rosa her Daughter and Rotillo take such good care of you every day you don"t want to leave. Rosa cooked for us 2 days and we wished we would have had her cook more often as the food was outstanding. We went fishing with a couple of fishermen who had a boat right on our beach and we caught 2 Barracuda and 1 Wahoo in the morning it was an amazing day. The snorkeling is about as good as it gets anywhere around this area but its right out your front door. To say we were all blown away by this property is a huge understatement . Our little girl even learned how to swim for the first time in the amazing pool, which thoroughly entertained both kids and adults alike. The area had so many activities to offer that in our 2 week stay we feel that we have just scratched the surface of all the thing to do and see. We really can't say enough about this amazing home, location and owners. Thank you Ed and family for letting us taste a small part of this paradise. We hope to be back many times in the years to come.

Aventuras Akumal is 1 hour south of Cancun, with all the beauty of the Caribbean, without the crowds of Cancun. Easy to get to by way of a safe modern 4 lane divided highway. Easy access to ruins, golf, and water activities. We are on a small semi private bay with the nicest beach in the area. There is very little commercial activity on our beach, no hustle and bustle of most resorts. We have a reef about 1/4 mile off shore that usually keeps the waves down, and this provides calm and blu water, with great swimming and snorkeling out our front door.
