Casa del Sol, an Akumal Landmark and one of my favorite houses, located along Akumal's Yal-Ku Lagoon.
Casa del Sol is well known for its great location, right at the headwaters of Yal-Ku Lagoon, very private, and for its funky eclectic decor. Previously owned by the band The Greatful Dead, this house is perfect for large groups or families, and has hosted some big name celebrities in it's time. Casa del Sol can be rented with up to five bedrooms and can sleep up to 14 people comfortably.
The outdoor kitchen and living area on the lagoon side of the property are great for entertaining and family get-togethers. Access to the lagoon is very easy, just down the garden path and across your own private bridge into the cool clear water of Yal-Ku where you can snorkel with the fish all day long. There is also a fabulous roof patio, half covered by a Palapa and half open to the sun and stars where you can sit surrounded by the ocean, the lagoon and the jungle.
Casa del Sol is well known for the many unique and attractive murals painted throughout the house that highlight the areas Mayan History and Natural Beauty. This house is truly one of kind and lends itself very well to people just "hanging out" together and having a great time! Merily and Obideo, the caretakers, do an excellent job. They are very charming and will take excellent care of you. They are also available to prepare meals for an additional fee, which we highly recommend you try. They really do a great job.
Casa del Sol offers many amenities including a gorgeous swimming pool and a lagoon side palapa with plenty of hammocks and lounge chairs for snoozing away the afternoon. It also has a and newly built waterfall with it's own small dipping pool on the lagoon side of the property. The refreshing waterfall is a wonderful place to give yourself a water massage after a swim in the lagoon, and it's also great for kids to play in the dipping pool when the waterfall is switched off. Kids also love to play in the private purpose built sandy beach area down by the lagoon and palapa. There are outdoor showers for rinsing off after snorkeling and tanks for rinsing your gear. There is a TV/DVD/VCR/Satellite in the main living area. They have a ton of VCR movies and a few DVDs.
Casa del Sol offers 5 bedrooms and will comfortably sleep 14 people. There are 2 bedrooms on the second level. One room has 2 twin beds and 1 double, the other has 1 double and 1 single bed. Each bedroom has a private bathroom and air conditioning. The Master is on the third level with a king bed, desk, private bathroom, air conditioning and a private palapa covered patio. For additional sleeping, there is a casita downstairs with king bed, private bathroom, stove and sink, and air conditioning. There is also a tower bedroom with a double bed and a single futon, air conditioning and great views! There are also roof top-hammocks, shower and toilet. There is also a bathroom off of the main patio area.
Driving DirectionsUpon leaving the Cancun airport, turn right (South) on highway 307 following
signs toward Chetumal/Xcaret then Playa del Carmen/Xel-Ha. Stay in the left
hand lane and follow the sign towards Tulum/Cozumel. Akumal is located one
and a half hours south of Cancun approximately 95 kilometers (60 miles).
Along your way you will pass Puerto Morelos, (a good place to stop for
drinks or gas), followed by Playa del Carmen which is 55 kilometers (35
miles) south of the airport. You then pass Puerto Aventuras Resort and
Xpu-Ha. Approximately 6 kilometers (4 miles) after Xpu-Ha you will see the
first Akumal highway signs. The entrance to "Akumal Playa" is well marked by overhead highway signs and you will see it on your left just under a large overhead pedestrian bridge and local traffic fly over bridge. The median will not allow you to turn there. Just before the bridges slow down, stay in the left lane, and follow the RETORNO sign to Akumal Playa which points you to your left. Stop at the stop sign, wait for traffic to clear and U-turn left now heading north on 307. You will take a right into the community of Akumal Playa immediately before the local traffic flyover bridge. If you pass under the bridges again you have gone too far. Once you have entered Akumal, continue
down the road and under the arches. Stay to your left at the statue where
the road splits. This will lead you to Half Moon Bay and Yal-Ku.Continue
down the road about a mile until you see a sign for La Sirena Condominiums,
where you take your first left turn. Casa del Sol is at the end of this
street, you can see it from here. Look for the large villa with the bright
gold sun painted near the top. Travel straight for two blocks and you will
pull straight into your drive way.
