Fantastic, beautifully designed home on Half Moon Bay in Akumal. Snorkeling steps from the door. Outstanding views from every room and a constant sea breeze. We were three families traveling together. The house, pool and location were perfect for all of us. The third-floor terrace was nice for sunset cocktails and late afternoon yoga! Thanks to Shelly and her partner...

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed Casa de Colores and our little community of Akumal. Thanks for spending your Easter week with us. -- Shelly

Such a wonderful property. Expertly maintained by local staff, Gaby and Zulma. They were so welcoming and we had a fantastic time. The house has four bedrooms in the main house and a fifth bedroom in the "casita," a smaller house on the other side of the lap pool. It's a little walk in to town, but we enjoyed the...
