Additional Location Information
Description of the house and its location.
Akumal is an old and beautiful fishing village located about an hour drive south of Cancun airport. It is well known for its beaches, bays and cenotes (fresh water outlets or swimming holes). The Meso American reef system comes to the shore here and many turtle breeds lay their eggs on its white sand beaches. Snorkeling and diving is very popular.
Casa Kukulcan is an architectural beauty. Built and lived in by the owners from 2009 it was first rented for Christmas 2013. The first 2 renters gave 5 star reviews.
The house is about 2 to 3 times the square footage of houses in the area. There are 6 bedrooms in total. There are 4 suites with full baths. The main master suite is huge with Jacuzzi tub and double showers. All suites have ocean and jungle (sunrise and sunset) views with access to broad balconies and verandahs. 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.
Punta Sur is a new estate with large new villas located just to the south of South Akumal.
There is a small strip of beach in front of the house next to the water, but the main beach at South Akumal is one minute to the north along a sandy track by the water. It is a beautiful, quiet, secluded and usually deserted white sand beach. The bay also has a large beautiful reef ideal for snorkeling and kayaking. The much busier Akumal beach can be overcrowded and its reef overused.
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. The brightly colored small fish around small rocks on the way are a delight to kids. This area is better for young children and more mature people as the bays depth from the beach can be variable. Note that people need to wear booties / foot protection in the Riviera Maya sea due to the proximity of the reefs. So negotiating flat rocks is easy.
We have some snorkeling gear and 2 kayaks.
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.
To the north, Akumal beach center is a fairly long (20 minutes) but pleasant walk via the seaside past Jade Beach. A short walk to our south is Aventuras Akumal another wonderful beach which is followed by another 2 half moon secluded beaches within walking distance.
Please review Google Earth which will show you the protected, shallow side of the bay as well as the beautiful white sandy beach and the closeness of the reef. There is a street view of the house and if you pan out you can look at the beautiful beaches around the area. Please note the size of the house relative to others.
We have a full package with links available to renters detailing tourism activities, restaurants and amenities.
Please feel free to communicate with me while considering your vacation rental. I am sure that you will be very happy with a decision to rent Casa Kukulcan.
I trust you will enjoy your vacation in the Akumal area.
