Description

Casa del Sol, an Akumal Landmark and one of our favorite houses!

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 Grateful Dead, this house is perfect for large groups or families, and has hosted some big name celebrities in its time. Casa del Sol can be rented with up to five bedrooms and can sleep up to 13 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 lagoon and the jungle.

Casa del Sol is well known for the many unique murals painted throughout the house that highlight the area's Maya 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.

Casa del Sol offers many amenities including a swimming pool and a lagoon side palapa with plenty of hammocks and lounge chairs for snoozing away the afternoon. It also has a waterfall with it's own tiny 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 and a bathroom for rinsing off after snorkeling and tanks for rinsing your gear.

Casa del Sol offers 5 bedrooms and will comfortably sleep 13 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, 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. There is a TV/DVD/Satellite in the main living area. AC in bedrooms only.

Casa del Sol is a great place for a family get together. Lots of space inside and out. Private pool, outdoor massage shower, and private access to the Yalku lagoon with great snorkeling. Obidio and Merilee keep the place exceptionally clean inside and out. And they are great cooks! They cooked several traditional meals for us to enjoy in the comfort of Casa del Sol. There are also great restaurants in easy walking distance. Beach access is a five minute walk. We highly recommend Casa del Sol.

What a fun house to stay in! So colorful! We had 9 people and there was plenty of space. The house is sprawling. The mattresses were firm but comfortable which I like. The kitchens are fully stocked. There were large bottles of filtered water in each of the kitchens which was fantastic. We used the outdoor kitchen the most which was so cool. Having private access to the lagoon saves time and money (I think $14/person/day). The palapa with hammocks was a favorite spot. The on site couple (Obidio and Merily) clean everyday and will cook for a price which we did for dinner one night and it was delicious! Marcia (with Akumal Direct) is extremely warm and responsive when asked questions about the house, places to order groceries to be there upon our arrival or excursions. There is a safe in the main bedroom. Thank you Akumal Direct for the good times! We hope to return one day!

The house is amazing, such a fun place to stay. We loved the local restaurants (especially La Buena Vida), and snorkeling in the lagoon (after 5 PM) was amazing. The highlight of the trip! Definitely worth the time of getting down there

Words can't even begin to describe this magical place...from the moment you walk in the doors you are transported to another world! The place is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Around every corner is something new to discover! Our favorite spot was the outdoor living area and kitchen where we had some of the best meals of the trip prepared by Obidio! The grounds are so amazing and we loved crossing the private bridge to snorkel in Yal Ku where we saw literally thousands of beautiful fish! This place is heaven on earth...we will definitely be back!

Casa Del Sol provided a wonderful family vacation for the 11 of us over the Christmas week. Although it was high season, when we were at the house it was tranquil and quiet. The lagoon, Caleta Yalku was beautiful, but did get crowded the week we were there. We had daily swims with snorkels and masks and it was filled with beautiful fish. It cleared at 5pm from it’s daily tours and we had it to ourselves until dark. The roof top was great for sunrises and sunsets.
We used the outside kitchen to gather and cook and Obidio made us amazing meals. We ate at the local restaurants, our two favorites are Que Onda and La Buena Vida, and ordered groceries for the rest of our meals. There are many iguanas at the house on the back patio. We had 2 golf carts and four bikes and used those for restaurants and market beach runs. We did not need a car having those. For excursions we booked with a local transportation service.

We would love to visit again.

The saying of “mi casa is su casa” didn’t sink in until I stayed there. Our family really did make it our home. We felt so comfortable and loved the lagoon access and rooftop views.
Obidio and Merryli (spelling?) are amazing. We had some great laughs as they cooked some of the best meals we had there. Those 2 added so much to our vacation.
I can’t imagine going to a all-inclusive resort where you never experience Mexico.
I loved the small town of Akumal (across the bridge) . What a tranquil and friendly place.
I can’t wait to come back.

This home is very spacious, nicely decorated, with two well equipped kitchens (our family of 8, all adults, prepared at least 1 meal per day with plenty of fridge, freezer space and dishes, silverware, and cookware) for 9 days. The bedrooms were all air conditioned and great rooms and outdoor living areas were comfortable with overhead fans. Marilee and Obidio, the daily staff, were helpful and kept the home very clean. The property, garden, and back yard were so cool and private, eclectic, and natural. There is a nice swimming pool, plenty of space to sunbath, a palapa for shade, walkways and meandering paths. But, the very best part of the Casa del Sol is the backyard access to the most magical Yal-Ku Lagoon. Birds, iguanas, lizards, can be seen everywhere above the water and the fish under the water will take your breath away! Snorkeling as soon as we woke in the morning was a favorite, as was the late afternoon evening, to watch the pelicans fishing within several yards of where you're snorkeling. We saw over 20 different varieties of fish, some amazingly colorful!

We had a wonderful stay here!

The aircon and fans worked beautifully. The beds were truly very comfortable! The place had everything we needed to cook simple meals. We felt utterly safe and welcomed by the people around us. The owner communicated well with us in answering any questions, and the neighbours too. The beach across the road was so beautiful! We rented a car and enjoyed the freedom to explore the area. Thoroughly recommend Casa del Sol.

We had a wonderful time at Casa Del Sol! It is a great place to slow down and relax. Not fancy but has everything we needed.

Fabulous beach in walking distance. Very authentic, low key Mexican town a short walk through the jungle. The people are very friendly and delightful. Jason is a very responsive and helpful host. Patricio and Elena on site are the sweetest, kindest people ever. Highly recommend!

We had a great visit at Casa del Sol. The host and his wonderful local caretakers responded rapidly whenever we needed anything. It was only a short drive to: Akumal's Half Moon Bay with its corals just off shore and an unusually fine restaurant La Lunita (on way to the Yal Ku lagoon), the superb public beach just south of the ruins in Tulum (passing a well stocked supermarket), and the interesting jungle ruins of Coba. The adjacent Xcacel beach may be the prettiest of all--just watch for falling coconuts in the white sand parking area there. We did not do cenote diving but the most acclaimed holes are in the immediate vicinity. The expat retiree neighbors were a cheerful bunch, inviting our daughter to Christmas and socializing with Chan Chemuyil's police officer who patrolled the town and Xcacel on her ATV. We'd love to return to Casa del Sol if we have the opportunity. Thank you Jason Manly!

It was completely as marketed and had everything we needed for the week, right down to the washing line to hang out our handwashing. The lovely extras such as bucket and spade for the 4YO for the beach came in handy, as did the beach chairs and towels - meant that our carry-on bag policy (from NZ!) worked out as we didn't have to take own towels etc. Within close proximity that all the Mayan Riviera offers, but far enough away from all the American flashy stuff of Cancun. Easy drive to Tulum and other local spots. We did an easy day trip to Cozumel Island from here. Jason was excellent with communications around the property and rental etc. We came from the south when we arrived, and he confirmed the directions to the property from that direction, so made it easy to find. The lady who looks after the house only speaks Spanish, but my minimal grip on the language was enough to comprehend her instructions on the usage of the fans or aircon units, and general information. Would happily return should we ever get the opportunity to do so. Oh - the beds were immensely comfortable - the best we had in the Yucatan (we stayed in hotels for the week before). The bed in the master bedroom must be a super king - it was fabulous!
