“Casa del Sol shows up in our best memories and dreams.”

There were 13 of us --my four sons and their families -- plus me. It was a group ranging in age from 2 to 75. The house was perfect for us. Many private spaces indoor and out, for reading, sleeping, just being quiet. Two living rooms, two kitchens. Everything is colorful and creatively designed and well-kept: nothing is pretentious or high-maintenance, and we loved that. [The house was owned at some point by The Grateful Dead's drummer, though I'm sure the Dead probably stayed there when they could.]

The big flowery and palm-treed patio "flowed" from the downstairs kitchen to the edge of the lagoon. Gardens were lovely front and back. Two fountains splashed when you turned them on! The pool was great. If you're traveling with young kids who aren't yet swimmers, be aware that there's no barrier around the pool....and obviously no fence around the very large lagoon!

Obidio and Merilee (husband and wife) watched over us --he as chef (we hired him for four nights + two breakfasts) and watchman every night in his hammock in the alley where the laundry is hung to dry; she as daily cleaner and kitchen helper.

The location was perfect. You could walk to a couple of good restaurants (also not pretentious) and/or drive or bike into Akumal for more restaurants. But the very best part was the location at the edge of Yal-ku lagoon, with private access.

Make sure to ask Marcia, the rental agent, to point you to the invaluable information on the website, which describes options for enjoying the area. And don't hesitate to call or email her with questions before you go. She's always polite and friendly and will have good suggestions as well.

Everyone in my family loved Casa del Sol and Akumal. We wish we could go for a week every single year.

PS Ask the local manager for a clear explanation of the security key system. We never got it straight. And ask that the wooden stairs into the lagoon be brushed clean so they won't be slippery.
