Villa Palmilla the elegance and good taste, blended with the beautiful ocean
Description from the manager
Rent this stunning masterpiece of a home,which is situated on a gorgeous private beach in Jade Bay. This truly amazing villa offers everything one could ever wish for a special holiday on the Mexican Caribbean. The owners of Villa Palmilla have thought of every detail in creating a well thought out, custom built luxury vacation home!
Walking through the entrance you will find yourself standing in a lush, shaded garden containing lush, tropical foliage. The walkway to the front door leads past a small rock pool, surrounded by potted plants and palms, where two fountains soothingly spill trickles of water into the aqua pool below. What a splendid experience this has been so far…and this is only the beginning!
Leaving the garden behind while opening the giant mahogany front door, you will immediately find yourself standing in a vast living area characterized by subtle, yet unquestionably tasteful elegance. To the right of the entrance is the fully stocked kitchen with walk-in pantry. The kitchen is accessorized with black granite countertops, a separate stand alone refrigerator/freezer unit, and a deluxe double oven. Tucked inside the central kitchen bar with three beautiful wicker stools is a custom made, built in refrigerated wine chiller. Store bottles of wine for that special occasion in the brick walk-in wine cellar! And enjoy scrumptious meals on a beautiful 8 person dining table made of Chechen, a lovely wood indigenous to the Yucatan Peninsula.
To the left of the entrance is the living area filled with exquisitely comfortable furniture, a color satellite TV, VCR, DVD player, and a five disc CD changer. This expansive room, which joins with the kitchen and dining area, features two floor to ceiling glass walls overlooking the spacious pool with a lap swimming section and the inviting aquamarine waters of the Caribbean ocean. Stepping out into the back yard is yet another incredible experience. Many comfortable chaise lounge chairs around the pool with two large umbrellas ensure that no one misses out on the sun and fun. For those who need to take a nap in the shade, there is plenty of cushioned furniture on the balcony both upstairs and downstairs under the ceiling fans. Surround sound speakers in the downstairs balcony add the perfect relaxing touch to enjoying your poolside pina colada! On a clear night under a thousand stars prepare a family BBQ on the stone grill while sitting around the recessed stone fire pit enjoying cool beverages.
As you ascend the mahogany and wrought iron stairway, you enter a stunning marble hallway filled with two rows of decorative windows facing the front garden. These gorgeous windows are from Germany, as are all the windows in Villa Palmilla, and offer the utmost in security and weather protection. Three bedrooms branch out from the hallway, all of which are stocked with quality linens and are extremely spacious with sitting areas and ensuite bathrooms.
The master suite has a king bed and gorgeous balcony with a spectacular view of the ocean. A high powered, free standing telescope is available for the avid stargazer. The artwork in the villa is absolutely stunning! The master suite has an amazing life-like zebra print. Enough said…you will simply have to wait and see the other prints upon your arrival. The master bath has an incredible sunken spa tub with a view of the turquoise ocean. The first guest suite also has a king bed and shares the same lovely balcony and amazing ocean view as the master suite. The second guest suite has two twin beds that can be made into a king size bed, complete with satellite TV. This suite has its own separate balcony with a great view of the ocean. All of the bathrooms have marble countertops and all of the shower heads both inside and out are from Italy. A safe for storing valuables is located in each bedroom.
There is a fourth room downstairs that is a combination office/TV room with two computer desks and satellite TV. A huge, luxury, camel suede sofa makes a double bed. O...Read more

Villa Palmilla is a beautiful villa. It is truly a pleasure the moment you walk through the gates and enter the courtyard and doesn't end. Everything is perfect---the decor, the staff, the location. Can't wait to get back next year. Have stayed at Villa Palmilla the past three summers.

My family and I have stayed in many villas in south, north, half-moon bay, ya-kul lagoon and right in Akumal near the dive shop and this was by far the nicest villa on all accounts! We loved it and will mkst certainly like to go back! I a specially liked the management team that worked at the house. Roger the property manager was very friendly and accommodating, Roger the grounds keeper and amazing cook! (our best meals were at the house the whole week) and Margarite was very sweet and kept the house beautifully spotless! The owners need to know what an amazing house they created esthetically and every detail is impeccable! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

I have stayed at several villas in the Akumal area and Villa Palmilla is definitely my favorite. Everything about it is first rate---from the interior, to the grounds, to the staff. Hope to come back soon.

When I rented Palmilla for my family's vacation, I had high expectations about the property because of price. When we arrive, however, it was really great that all of our expectations were significantly surpassed. The house is beautiful, the people from the property management company and the two people who took care of our house each day were excellent. We also had them cook some meals for us and it was better than any five star restaurant. Other than a few chilly days, we could not have picked a better place, a better staff or had a better time. No one will be disappointed.
