Casa del Santo


The beautiful beachfront villa Casa del Santo or ‘House of the Saint’ is located in the private gated community of South Akumal amongst a small number of other private homes. The home blends classic Colonial Spanish design with modern Caribbean beach house living. These elements, combined with tasteful furnishings and decor, plus the owners loving touches, and a magical tropical setting all combine to create an idyllic vacation experience.

When you pull off the quiet street into the private off street parking area that can fit four cars, your vacation begins! A lush garden leads to a courtyard and entry to the villa. Along the pathway is a small two storey building or ‘casita’. This little house has staff quarters on the ground floor and a bedroom suite with full bathroom on the second floor, providing a fifth bedroom should you require it.

Once inside of the villa you will be in an entry foyer. A full guest bathroom is conveniently located here. The entry to the ground floor bedroom is also from the foyer. This large bedroom has Twin beds and a Double day bed. Attached to the bedroom is a large en-suite bathroom with shower. Straight ahead the foyer and down a few steps brings you to the living and dining room areas. The large open area on the ocean side of the villa is not only spacious but offers wonderful views of the pool and ocean just beyond.

In the living room, with pool and ocean view, you will find a leather furniture grouping of sofa and love seat. A satellite TV (Spanish with limited English programming), DVD player, CD player and some board games are discreetly tucked away in an entertainment cabinet should you ever tire of the view and want some other diversion. On the other side of the room is the dining room. This room also enjoys spectacular pool and ocean views. Sliding glass doors provide easy access to the covered terrace, pool and beach just beyond.

The kitchen is slightly elevated. This and an arched opening into the dining and living areas, provides a view of the pool and ocean plus the free flow of conversation between these rooms. Four stools at the counter/bar is the ideal spot for a snack as you enjoy the view.

Heading upstairs you will find the three other main villa bedrooms. The spacious Master Suite faces the ocean, has a King bed, sitting area, and extra large en-suite bathroom with double sinks and beautifully tiled shower. The first upstairs guest bedroom is quite large with an impressive brick domed ceiling that adds to the sense of volume of the space. The bedroom has a Queen bed, sitting area, desk and an en-suite bathroom with shower. The second upstairs guest bedroom in the main villa is also a good size. It too is fitted with an en-suite bathroom with shower. This bedroom has an ocean view and a King bed.

For groups that require an additional bedroom, there is the stand alone bedroom suite in the casita, which gives you a fifth bedroom and additional privacy. There is a small sitting area at the entrance to the casita bedroom which looks down on the tranquil courtyards and gardens. Inside the bedroom is vaulted with a red brick domed ceiling. The bed is a Queen and the room is complete with an en-suite bathroom with shower.

Of course the real draw of any beach vacation is the outdoor space. Casa del Santo – Akumal will not disappoint. A covered patio terrace stretches the length of the villa frontage. A table and chairs for outdoor dining as well as chaise lounges are provided for dining and relaxing. A small pool (no shallow end for small children) offers an inviting and welcome reprieve from the heat. A couple of kayaks are provided for guests to enjoy the normally calm waters of South Akumal Bay. This bay is also ideal for snorkeling. The beach and water entry in front of the villa is a mix of sand with some rock outcrops. Water shoes are not critical but recommended for easier entry and exit of the water.

South Akumal bay, where this beautiful villa is located, is considered a prime Akumal location   There are a total of 20 private oceanfront homes in this gated community.  An offshore reef provides a break for waves, creating a gorgeous calm bay that is ideal for snorkelling, kayaking, and swimming.  The shoreline is mostly sandy with a few rocky outcrops in places, but never creating a problem finding somewhere to wade into the water.  It is ideal for kids and good for beachcombing.  Services are not within walking distance, but are located just a short 5-15 minute drive away.
