Casa de las Conchas is a dream 4500 sq ft beachfront Caribbean vacation home, situated right on the white sandy beach at the quiet residential community of South Akumal. Conchas sports 4 large bedrooms all equipped with King beds. The huge master bedroom on the upper floor is the entire length of the house and complete with a small living area, patio doors out onto the oceanfront terrace, its own dressing room, and a huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub!
Conchas actually sports over 2000squ ft of outdoor decks and balconies! Wake up to the sparkling Caribbean sea and the sound of the water lapping against the shore. The second upper bedroom has beautiful views of the beach and ocean through its large windows. It has a king sized bed and louvered window connecting it to the master bedroom, making this bedroom ideal for kids. The 3rd bedroom suite on the upper floor has a great view over the tropical gardens to the rear of Casa de las Conchas. This suite includes a nice bathroom with shower, and ocean view kitchen, and fitness area (with double pull out bed for extra sleeping). This bedroom also has its own access from an external staircase so is ideal for those looking for a little extra privacy.
As we go downstairs we are welcomed by the large family kitchen leading onto the living area and ocean front dining room. There is plenty of seating for large groups to dine together here. If you don't feel like cooking then we can highly recommend hiring Chayo to cook you and your family a feast of delicious local delicacies or traditional Mayan cuisine! Upon arrival at the villa you will be greeted by a complimentary gift basket of goodies including tequila and some nice cold beers. In the northern part of the villa there is a further 4th bedroom with King sized bed and again its own en-suite and separate kitchen and living area. This fourth bedroom suite, like the garden view bedroom suite upstairs, also has its own bathroom, kitchenette area, and additional independent access.
From the living room walk out through the patio doors onto the outdoor terrace with 2 large dining tables and chairs for wonderful Caribbean alfresco breakfasts in the sun, daytime BBQs, or dining under the stars. Take a dip in the great freshwater swimming pool or relax on white sandy beach under one of the house's 3 thatched palapas. The bay at Akumal South is protected by a double barrier reef just 100m offshore making the water in the bay very calm almost all year round and awesome for snorkeling. For this reason it is home to a whole host of tropical reef life including endangered sea turtles who nest right here on the beach from May to September every year. The villa offers 3 kayaks for guest use so grab one and explore the bay!
Don’t miss taking full advantage of Casa de las Conchas huge roof terrace! The villa also has a Vonage phone with free land line calls to the US, Canada, and some European countries, 3 sets of golf clubs, a spinning bike and an elliptical training machine for those who want to work our while on vacation.
Casa de las Conchas truly is a wonderful home for large groups letting you get the amount of independence or together time just right for your well deserved, relaxing, tropical vacation.

This was the perfect place for our family vacation. The 4-bedroom house in South akumal is spacious and right on the beach. For warm days, there is air conditioning in every room. The house staff was friendly and helpful, able to buy groceries and prepare meals, allowing us to enjoy our vacation without needing to travel or rent a car. The ocean reef in the bay makes for perfect snorkeling. We saw an eagle ray, sting rays, baracuda, lobster, and countless fish. This is a quiet and secure neighborhood. If you're looking for a party environment, then don't bother coming to beautiful South akumal. If you need to go into the town of akumal, it's a 30 minute walk on the beach or you can arrange for a taxi. We loved it here and can't wait to return.
Thank you for posting your lovely comments about your stay at Casa de las Conchas located on South Akumal beach. We are so pleased that you enjoyed a perfect family vacation. We will look forward to seeing you again next year!
Thank you for choosing Casa de las Conchas for vacation. Your business is appreciated!

Everything at Casa de las Conchas was amazing. Akumal is now my favorite place to vacation. The beach was beautiful, the house has everything and akumal is a wonderful little village. I would highly recommend the fruit stand on Wednesday morning. Turtle Bay resturant was a great place to eat. The ruins at Coba were excellent. The ruins at Tulum were good but there were tons of people. The best part of Tulum was the snorkeling we did. It was fun to read the journals in the house and we were able to select what we wanted to do based on what others had written. I can not wait to return!

We stayed at Las Conchas during april vacation, and are still dreaming of our time there. Our group consisted of two families together with children ranging in age from 10 to18. Plenty of room for all, and the pictures just don't do it justice. Some of the best things were, a/c in the bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, outdoor spaces, hermit crabs. Loved getting up in the morning and sitting outside with a cup of coffee, soaking in the views.
The beach bright out front was beautiful and had great snorkeling and beach combing (although a little rocky so wear water shoes). the pool was just the right size and so refreshing after a busy day of exploring. We also really enjoyed walking the 25 minutes along the beach into Turtle Bay, where we ate at Lol Ha and swam with sea turtles. There really is so much to do in the area (we had some great day trips to Xel-Ha, Yal Koo lagoon, and the Jungle Place), and we always felt very safe. Miguel was our driver for a few of our trips, and he was such a pleasure to work with. We really enjoyed every day of our time at Las Conchas and were sad to leave.
In regards to the staff, what a lovely group of people caring for such a special place. Guille was so good about checking in on us and making sure we had everything we needed, and we really enjoyed chatting with her when she visited (she has so much knowledge of the area). Chayo and Felix do a wonderful job keeping the home spotless and we hardly knew they were there. Hilario was always there before anyone woke up to make sure the grounds and pool were clean and ready for our days of fun, he does such a great job. In addition to Chayo's cleaning skills, she is also an excellent chef. We had her cook dinner for us and it was so good we wish we had done that more.
The only thing we liked least was probably the grocery shopping. We would recommend doing the grocery delivery on line. Also, the grill is charcoal not gas, so just plan accordingly. C
Thank you so much for your lovely comments about your stay at Casa de las Conchas. We are very proud of the villa and the staff. They all work very hard to ensure a relaxing and easy vacation. We are also pleased that you felt safe while visiting the Akumal area. Feeling comfortable is the key to relaxation and that is our goal for our guests. It is wonderful that you ventured out of the gated community to explore the area. We will look forward to your return when vacation permits. Thank you for choosing Casa de las Conchas for vacation.

We just returned from a week at Casa de las Conchas and could not be more pleased with the experience. The property was just fantastic and exactly as described with great snorkeling right off the beach. We had turtle nests just a few feet from the property.
The service provided by the staff was exceptional and the dinners were top notch. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return again some day.
Thank you for your kind comments about your stay at Casa de las Conchas. We thank you for your business and we do hope you return at the first opportunity for vacation.

What a delightful place to stay!
We kayak'd everyday, swam in the pool and ocean, went hermit crab hunting at night, saw turtles lay their eggs, enjoyed breakfast, & coffee every morning and had delicious meals prepared when requested! A true relaxed vacation!

We loved the house, the manager, housekeeper and grounds staff. Pool was fabulous and beach chairs and outdoor furniture were great to use. furnishings were very comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked with most appliances. It might be time to get some new sharp knives!
Great to have DVD and VCR and also lots of books - thanks!
This location is also so close to some great places to visit.
The massages were perfect!!
The house is very warm at night especially given no screen door on the front door so it can't stay open to allow a through draft because of the mosquitoes. Also putting the kyaks in full working order would be good.
