Description

''San Francisco is our home away from home and when the going gets tough back in the world, we dream of our own spot in Paradise on the beaches of the Mayan Riviera.

What could be more perfect? Swim or snorkel in the Caribbean sea just outside the back door. Or, if it is your preference, take a dip in the freshwater pool. Still too much effort? A siesta in the hammock between palm trees might be just what you need.

We love our place in the sun and would like to share it with you!"

Casa San Francisco is a newly renovated villa that is warm and inviting and feels just like home. Gorgeous colors and furnishings, a magnificent ocean, white sand beach, privacy and a fabulous swimming pool. What more could you want?

Casa San Francisco is a "Hacienda" style villa located on the white sandy beach of gated, residential, South Akumal. The villa is a comfortable and colorful mix of arts and crafts from around the world set in the midst of tropical gardens and Caribbean beach. Its charm is completed by wrought iron balconies and courtyard fountains. "It is just lovely" reads the guest book.

Casa San Francisco offers four bedrooms in the main villa, over two floors. The main floor includes the open living and dining area and fully equipped kitchen. From the living / dining area you will enjoy a full view of the turquoise Caribbean. Via sliders you access the gorgeous swimming pool and its limestone deck area which is well furnished with tables, chairs and pool side loungers. There are also some great coconut trees along the beach which are perfect for hanging your hammock.

The Bedrooms: On the upper floor, three gorgeous and relaxing air conditioned bedrooms are available. The ocean view master bedroom is furnished with king and has private bath. Another lovely guest bedroom is located next to the master bedroom with the same wonderful ocean views, king sized bed, and ensuite bathroom. A third ensuite guest bedroom on the upper floor is furnished with a king bed and also enjoys a stylish brick domed ceiling and a lovely view of the garden. The fourth bedroom is located on the main level with garden view. This is a spacious ensuite room has two twin beds (can be made into a king) and a trundle bed. All of the ensuite bedrooms have showers and either a single or double vanity, and there is an additional full guest bathroom with shower on the main level complete with shower accessed from the main hall.

If you require additional space Casa San Francisco includes a cute upper level guest house across the garden side fountain courtyard. The guest house is air conditioned and furnished with a queen bed, en suite bathroom, its own private terraces overlooking the jungle and the courtyard, and also a wonderful private roof terrace which is the perfect place for star gazing at night.

We had a FABULOUS time at Casa San Francisco!! First of all the house was lovely with 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a wonderful outdoor space - beautiful pool and the beach right out front. The view is overwhelmingly beautiful. Guille the house manager was there when we arrived and explained everything about the property. She came over every day to make sure that everything was great . A maid came daily to clean and a gentleman came every other day to take care of the pool. Each year my husband and I and our family of 3 sons, 3 daughter-in-laws and 3 grandchildren go somewhere in the summer together for a week. We have been to Cape Cod, the Outer Banks and other spots but Casa San Francisco is our favorite of all. We spent a great deal of our 8 day trip at the house enjoying the pool and the sea - doing a lot of snorkeling and kayaking. We rented a 12 passenger van at the airport so we could visit various spots. We swam in 3 different Cinotes, visited the ruins in Coba, visited Tulum and snorkeled with the turtles in Akumal. We also hired Chefs who cooked Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner for us each day and did all the shopping. (Best decision ever!!!). We went thru Chef Daveed. Our chefs, a wonderful couple - Esmarelda and Edgar - were remarkable. Everything was beyond delicious - and they are just such lovely people. (If you decide to do this ask for them.) The street the house is located on is gated and manned 24 hrs a day with a security guard. We felt completely safe. It was our best family vacation yet. I highly recommend Casa San Francisco. We WILL be back. Carole

Casa San Francisco was absolutely incredible. Literally steps from the sea, the views from the house are nothing short of spectacular. We were greeted by Guille the house manager upon our arrival, and were swept away by the beauty of the place. Guille checked in every day to make sure we had everting we needed. The house is huge, with more than enough room for our party of nine. Everything was super clean, including the pool, which we used extensively throughout our stay. The location of the house is about 5 minutes south of Akumal and about 20 minutes north of Tulum. The convenient location allowed us to explore the Tulum area and the ruins there, but also the ruins in Cobá with ease. Highly recommend having a car to get around! The quiet street is gated and manned by security personnel 24/7 who also walk the beaches at night. We felt incredibly safe during our visit.

A wonderful place to spend the Christmas holidays with our family! Right on the beach, where our family spent time snorkeling and paddling with the three kayaks provided. We used the pool (kept very clean), sat around the pool on the patio and enjoyed the view. The place was clean, and kept clean every day, and had all the amenities we had hoped for! Guillet was a superb in making us feel welcome, in advising us, and offered superb assistance when we got in trouble for poor parking in Tulum! Thanks Guillet! The local couple that kept the place clean, also cooked dinner for us three evenings; great local fare, fantastic guacamole and salsa! Highly recommend to get them involved in some dinners! Thanks Jorge and Naomi.
In all, we were very happy with the choice of Casa San Francisco, and highly recommend it!

Excellent home - looks just the the pictures. The view is incredible and just a few steps down the beach is a very sandy area where there are no people - your own private beach! We are a group of 8 adults and 3 children that stayed at Casa San Francisco for 10 days - it was a fabulous vacation and we hated to leave. Highly recommend having staff cook fo you (especially Mayan Chicken). Staff is lovely and look after the place so everything you need is there. Guille the manager checked with us most days to see if we needed anything - absolutely wonderful staff. Cannot say enough about this place and hope to go back.

Casa San Francisco met all of our expectations and then some. The house was exactly as pictured and super clean. We loved the pool which was kept clean each day and we loved the easy access to the beach. The water right out front was perfect for snorkeling and kayaking. And the small town of Akumal was just a short 30 minute walk up the beach. The house staff was also super friendly and accommodating. We were so comfortable it was hard to leave for day trips. I will definitely be staying here again!

We spent a wonderful family vacation at Casa San Francisco in July 2018. The home is very comfortable, well appointed and in a nice location in South Akumal. The few small issues we had with the air conditioning and hot water were quickly resolved by the very attentive property manager. It is clear that the owners care about their property and how well their guests enjoy it. We would return to this property again.

How do you describe the perfect beach house? Casa San Francisco!! We enjoyed the water parks and cenotes. The kiddos were also entertained by the oceanfront pool and we had space to spread out and enjoy watching them. The villa is unique, special and so perfect! Most importantly, the caretakers and cook were so grand! We loved our meals. We ony hope to return one day for another perfect vacation!

The home and the location was perfect for our family group of 8 for my son's college graduation and the staff were excellent! We're already familiar with the area (a couple with us lives in Puerto Morelos, 40min north of Akumal) so knowing where to go or not (Playa del Carmen is too crowded and not our style) is helpful. Our target hangout of Tulum beach bars and restaurants are only 20 minutes away. The Akumal Sur row of houses found friendly neighbors walking by or waves from each other as we walked the beach. The pool accommodated all 8 of us, and our wine, from time to time and chairs/lounges all had excellent views of the ocean. Beds are very comfortable, the air conditioning and fans did their job and the cards, dice and games there kept the 'party' going. A wonderful woman Guille, the house manager who speaks perfect English, arranged the staff to make whichever meals we scheduled (breakfast almost every morning and a few dinners). They'll shop for the food and make whatever you want (french toast was a huge hit).
Now having said all this, there's nothing negative, only observations and situations which require dealing with or adjustments. 
Currently, the entire Caribbean region is dealing with Sargasso (an ocean grass/seaweed) that grows and gets deposited on the shore and beach. It can be a bit or piled up 2' tall. It's from Texas to Brazil and not just a local issue. If you're willing to be flexible and willing to take it in stride, you'll find it a nuisance but didn't keep us out of the water. We just found an area that had less and enjoyed the warm water. We were very fortunate to have great weather but on our last day and a half, tropical storms did occur (which didn't keep us out of the pool during breaks in the rain)! Power to the neighborhood goes out easily which means no lights/ac or water. Again, you make adjustments and if you're positive, it doesn't become a deal breaker. It also didn't stop Noemi and her husband from making a wonderful coffee and breakfast (AGAIN!) by early morning candlelight (there is plenty of separate drinking water) which again, depending on being flexible, can add an interesting layer. So overall, it was just about perfect and we loved the staff and didn't let Mother Nature's tiny bumps interfere with our very special celebration.

The house was so spacious, comfortable and well appointed for our group of 11. There were eight adults and three children. The view was absolutely beautiful and we never tired of it. Our entire stay felt magical! There was good snorkeling out front, kayaks to use and we were in the pool everyday. The home was very clean, nicely decorated and really well cared for by the staff. Drinking water was provided and plentiful. It felt very safe. We would definitely return and stay here again!!! Our only suggestions are little things: more towels/washcloths available, a broom and dustpan in the home and upgraded pots and pans as we did quite a bit of cooking during our 8 days. Such a great place, we didn't want to leave. Thank you for taking such good care of us!

We were a party of 4 couples and had a great stay at Casa Francisco! We have had an annual Mexico trip for 8 years, 6 in one location. We were quite spoiled with our previous location but needed a new city, and found it hard to find a place to meet all our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa San Francisco and plan on returning. The home itself, location, staff, meals, cleanliness made for a great vacay. I highly recommend!

Stayed for a week in November with 4 teens and 6 adults. The house is very nice plenty of room and nicely decorated, I wouldn't change a thing. The housekeepers were there everyday keeping things clean and did a great job. The property manager came over several times to check in on us and she was very friendly and helpful. I wish I remember her name, but I'm writing this review too long after our stay and have forgotten. The house is not to far from Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. We rented a car and driving was very easy on the main road up and down the coast. If you have a smaller group you can catch a collectivo on the main road a quick little walk from the house. We also walked to Akumal a few times along the beach, this was a very nice walk. Kayaking at the house was very nice. At the house its very relaxing not too many people at all in this area. More people on the Beach closer to Akumal, but very private and relaxing at the house. Everyone felt safe the neighborhood has security and a couple of them walked up and down the beach outside the house all night with flashlights. Would for sure return and wish I had longer then a week to stay.

The Casa Sanfrancisco was perfect for our party of nine. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large, comfortable, and styled perfectly. The casita was also used by one of the couples. We cooked all diners on premises and had all the kitchenware we needed. The outdoor space made this rental exceptional--the patio, pool, beach chairs, bar-b-que, and kayaks, and especially the beach and Caribbean Sea just steps outside the door. The care takers and liaison staff were terrific. The only minor faults included not knowing that drinking water was supplied (we needlessly purchased large amounts on our way from the airport); the oven/stove not being as up to date as the rest of the house and appliances; and the limited supply of fresh beach towels. Overall surpassed our expectations and has set the bar very high for all furture vacations!

We had 8 people stay at the Hacienda and we all had a great experience. The staff were great, they went above and beyond as it was my fathers birthday and they actually picked up a birthday cake for my dad. The thing that I haven't seen in many reviews is that the house staff can cook for you and they are fabulous chefs. It is a husband and wife and we all thought the meals were delicious. The house had a nice layout, there were 4 couples and we all stayed comfortably in the house, two more people could've slept in the guest house too. The area is gated and there are security guards protolling the street and beach so it feels very safe.

The beach is nice but there are tons of rocks where the water meets the beach front so its not a white sandy ocean bottom, bring water shoes! We wish they had a hammock, there are two trees by the pool looking at the ocean which are prefect for hammocks. If you have a small eno or packable hammock I would recommend bringing it. They have three, one man kayaks, nothing fancy but they work to go out exploring in the bay.

The property managers were extremely helpful before the trip and the helped coordinate a shuttles service to and from the airport. The ride is about an hour and twenty minuets from the airport.

Tulum is a 30 minute taxi ride and Playa de Carmen takes around 35-40 minutes from the Hacienda.

If you walk north on the beach you will end up at Akumal Bay which has a great restaurant right on the beach, its where all the boats are anchored out. It took us around 25 minutes to walk there. There are small gift shops, a dive shop, tours, and some restaurants so bring your Pesos.

I would definitely recommend staying here as everyone in our group loved the experience and the staff. The whole experience was wonderful! It's in a perfect location, private yet close enough for day trips to different areas.

Casa San Francisco was an absolute delight! Spacious, comfortable and with fantastic views of the sea. Loved waking up and taking two steps to be on the beach! Definitely highly recommend! So many wonderful cenotes to explore nearby too!

This house was great for us. We had two families (4 adults, 5 kids), and we filled all of the rooms, including the casita. Kids (and adults) were on the beach and in the pool all day, every day.

We had dinner made for us just about every night (plus guacamole & pico de gallo as an appetizer every afternoon), and we fended for ourselves for breakfast and dinner. We are comfortable grocery shopping, and we did rent a car. If you wanted to go out to eat, and wanted to walk there, this would be a little on the far side, especially with kids, but if you just want to relax and have someone cook and cleanup, this will be a perfect spot for you. You don't need to rent a car; taxis are plentiful and reasonable.

There is good snorkeling in the bay (protected by a barrier reef). The entry is rocky, so water shoes that fit in your fins are a plus, but lots of folks manage without them.

Be sure to go around the pool area with a flashlight just after sunset. You will find a parade of hermit crabs out and about!
