Casa Esperanza was very close and accessible to the small town of Akumal and the beach, but very private, particularly on the back side with pool surrounded by the jungle. The house was extremely well maintained, clean, well appointed with the rooms (bedrooms, living room, kitchen and outside patio) facing the private pool area. The bedrooms were spacious and each had a private bathroom with large showers. The indoor living room and kitchen were very nice and open, however we found that we spent most of our time, while at the house, enjoying the covered patio sitting area facing the pool or in the sun on the chaise loungers next to the pool. The free washer and dryer on sight was a great convenience during our stay helping to reduce the amount of clothes that we had to bring along. (Who am I kidding....my wife still brought a lot of clothes, but I was able to get away with less. :) )
We have stayed in a number of hotels, all-inclusives and condos in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and South Akumal. Casa Esperanza was our first house rental in Mexico and I have to say was our absolute favorite. We have come to love Akumal as a destination, with easy day trips to Playa and Tulum, while the casual dining, snorkeling and beach hanging are so relaxing.
If you are looking for quiet, relaxing and private with the 3-5 minute walking proximity to great food, beach and casual walking destinations, this place is worth putting on your short list. We will definitely be back and plan to share with our friends next time. Enjoy!!
