“Our second visit was as great as the first”
This was our second visit to Casa Luna. Its a wonderful home with perfect staffing during the day. The location is central to the beach and good restaurants. The view from the two main bedrooms is amazing. We highly recommend this location for families or adults traveling together.
Response from the owner Thank you Mary Kay for your visit and for choosing Casa Luna as your vacation home once again. We hope to see you again, Warm regards from Akumal (Casa Luna)
If are looking for seclusion, rest and relaxation then Casa Luna is the perfect choice. As much as I would like to keep akumal a secret. . . I have to say that it is my favorite place to go with groups of any kind. An easy 40 minute drive to Cancun makes it really convenient for airport pick up and stocking up on groceries. Costco and Superama are the places to go for great shopping and once you are stocked up all that is left to do is to tuck yourself into a cozy ocean front view home like Casa Luna for the perfect vacation. Rent bicycles, golf carts or walk around the pedestrian friendly town. For real adventure, stop in at the akumal Dive shop where they will greet you in English and help you organize anything from snorkeling to fishing, sailing or scuba diving!!! I love akumal!!!
“I love Casa Luna!”
Casa Luna is everything a vacation rental should be. The house is lovingly tended to by Sylvia and Luis, who feel like the relatives you have always wished you had. Yet, their welcoming, familial nature is only a part of the reason that Casa Luna feels like home. The house itself is gorgeous beyond compare. Every tile, every dish, every painted fish was chosen with care. The rooms are all secluded enough that you can get away from the group and yet the common spaces are so accommodating that you may not want to. We were still discovering hidden nooks and crannies within the place up until our last morning in Mexico. Akumal is a wonderful little town. It is far enough from Cancun and Tulum that it doesn't feel completely swamped with tourists, yet also close enough that it is a convenient drive to the shops and the airport. Also, there are sea turtles in Half-Moon Bay. Need I say more? Writing this now makes me yearn to go back to Casa Luna and watch the moon rise over the ocean once again. I cannot say enough good things about this magical place. You need to just go see for yourself.
“Our multi-generation family loved the house and gracious hospita”
Casa Luna is a perfect home for several families to share. Bedrooms with bathrooms provide privacy, common areas are spacious, cooking and dining facilities are excellent. Silvia and Luis anticipated our every need. Her special dinner was delicious and the soothing beverage she provided for our 5 year old's upset tummy worked. Access to the beach and the park next door allowed the children to play without being on the street. Easy drives to Yalku Lagoon, Aktun Chen, Coba, Tulum, and Sian Ka'an broadened our experiences, but walking into akumal or along the beach at Half Moon Bay were daily pleasures. Snorkeling was tops, and the pool at the house much appreciated.
“Gorgeous, versatile villa in a beautiful,tranquil setting- a pai”
Each year I take a group of 6-10 participant to Mexico for an "Akumal art adventure/Painting in paradise. Casa Luna has been a perfect fit for our painting fun for two years running. The property and gardens afford so many great nooks and crannies for private painting (or relaxing) as well as a beautiful covered patio with a great table for group painting and demos (or eating!) The villa is especially great for unrelated people with spaces for being together and more than just a bedrooms for privacy. All bedrooms have private doors to the grounds some have extra balconies, kitchens, etc too. The kitchen is very well equipped and there's a lovely grill area too so cooking in is a fun option. The staff is friendly and helpful. Ask Luis antonio to get you a coconut! I love this pink palace!!
“Incredible home, excellent location, lots of privacy”
From the moment we arrived, the house felt like home. It was perfect for us having two teenagers who want their own privacy. The home is situated on the very southern point of Half Moon Bay, and has incredible views and privacy. The home was very clean, and welcomed us with fresh fruit. Sylvia is the house keeper and is so friendly and very helpful. Luis is the care taker and is also very friendly and helpful. Lots of iguanas around the yard, and barking gecko's are all over the place, and are super cool. At night the hermit crabs come out around the pool and sometimes in, but are harmless and fun to watch. Sylvia is an incredible cook if you want her to make you dinner, and if you have never had avocado soup, you have to try it. Even our very picky kids loved it along with the entire meal. It is a very short walk to La Buena Vida restaurant and bar, which has great food and is a lot of fun. There are neat little tide pools and little sand pockets just outside the back door of the house, but the house sits mostly on a rock out cropping. If you want the bigger white sand beaches, its a very short walk to the beach at half moon bay, and a relatively short walk to akumal Bay, about a half mile or 10 minutes. The area is incredibly safe and secure. We walked all over the place, sometimes late at night, and felt very comfortable and safe. Everyone we met was very friendly, and very helpful for directions. The home was really incredible, and would be ideal for two or three couples. The casita over the garage is also very private and very nice. I really can't wait to go back!!!
We have stayed at Casa Luna a couple of times. The location is ideal, easy walking to everything Akumal has to offer. The home can be cozy for a small group, or spacious enough for large gatherings providing enough privacy for all to enjoy. Rooms are nicely decorated, good size, and clean! Beautifully situated looking out over the ocean, where the upstairs patio gives you unbelievable views...trully breathtaking! We would highly recommend Casa Luna.
“Casa Luna - A truly unique and wonderful place to stay!”
I can't imagine a more beautiful location, or a more welcoming community to spend two weeks in Mexico. To stay in Casa Luna is to have your own personal oceanfront resort. Whether it was laying out in the beautiful gardens and listening to the tropical surf lap at the rocks below, enjoying the panoramic views from Casa Luna's rooftop bar/tower room, sunbathing on the secluded rooftop patio, or relaxing poolside - there was always a place to get away, as much as there was a place to be together and enjoy family. The staff was simply amazing. Sylvia's cooking was unforgettable, and Luis the gardener was a delight (especially when he harvested fresh coconuts from palm trees in the yard and gave them to us to drink the fresh coconut juice). Akumal was a very friendly community with lots to offer - I especially liked walking to Akumal bay and snorkeling with the sea turtles in the mornings. The restaurants in the area were delicious and one night we even watched a flamenco dance show while eating dinner! It's a great location - not too busy like other towns seemed- though it was only a short drive to the bustling city of Playa del Carmen to the north, or to the street vendor market places of Tulum to the south. Everything we hoped for and more! I couldn't imagine a better paradise for a vacation in the Caribbean - or anywhere else in the world for that matter - I can't wait to go back.
“Truly unique and rejuvenating... The House of the Moon.”
First of all the location was amazing. Akumal is a gem, just far away enough from the Spring-breakers at Playa del Carmen and Cancun to have a good vacation. In good proximity to a plethora of temples, beaches, markets in Tulum, and hiking trails. All you have to do is ask someone. If you just want to lay back, Casa Luna will accommodate. Swing in the hammocks, dip in the pool, sunbathe in the deck, or read in what I called fish room (you'll see) and enjoy the view. I saw very spectacular sunrises from the deck and fish room. This eccentric house has a charm that stays with you after you leave. Casa Luna does not your typical exterior; painted resort-white. It's vibrant color welcomes you when you turn the corner and see it after a day trip. Perfect place for a group of friends, family, or romantic evenings with your loved one. I visited with all of the above. Sounds crazy, but the location made this trip a breeze. The local folks are welcoming and know much about the area. So if you're feeling spontaneous, adventurous or whatever, ask away and you'll be guided in the right direction. Sylvia and Luis are the BEST. I recommend some of Sylvia's cooking by the way. I would call her dishes, YucatanGourmet Chic (though the state is actually Quintana Roo). You can also make your own meals in the kitchen or use the built in stone grill outside (use candles to light the charcoal, works best- I found out the hard way). You can also walk to many of the local restaurants and bars, and stumble your way back safely (unless you fall of course). Had no fear walking at night and had a blast every time. I also recommend taking a walk to the lagoon about a 1/3 mile away (there's a small entrance fee well worth it). Overall, I could not ask for a better place to get away. Soft beds, great food and drink, unique attractions, nature, and beautiful weather. I highly recommend a stay here and I am will definitely stay here again.
We had a large group and the house accommodated us very well. It's kid friendly (with the pool coming into the living room) and tons of room for the adults. The kitchen had everything we needed and the big table on the patio was a great place to gather for meals and cocktails. Sitting up on top of the 2nd floor and watching sunrises was a highlight. Casa Luna has a great layout. You can sit on the shaded patio for some afternoon reading or lay out in the sun and bake by the pool. It's a short walk into town. Fun to go to the farmers market a couple days a week and there are a couple tasty restaurants. The water is beautiful and the beaches are fantastic. Loved Casa Luna.
