Holiday Rental House
Our guests quickly learn that they are in a welcoming, homelike environment, surprisingly affordable. The rooms are spacious yet retain a cozy ambience, with comfortable furniture complemented by a collection of interesting artwork, in contrast to the sterile modernity of cookie cutter condos with concrete built-ins or the commercial pseudo elegance of the all-inclusive resorts. Relax in the roof garden of plants that thrive in arid, sun drenched conditions like cactus, yucca, aloe, date trees and coconut palms.. Doze on lounges in the sun or read in the shade of the palapa roofed gazebo while enjoying views of sea and jungle around you. Casa Gatos is situated on a quiet lane in the residential neighborhood of North Akumal between Half Moon Bay and Yalku Lagoo...

Doze on lounges in the sun or read in the shade of the palapa roofed gazebo while enjoying views of sea and jungle around you. Casa Gatos is situated on a quiet lane in the residential neighborhood of North Akumal between Half Moon Bay and Yalku Lagoon. The entrance faces a small woodland park that serves to buffer us from the bustling traffic of the beaches and the condo zone. Behind the Mayan style limestone wall is an intimate tropical garden and central courtyard that sets the relaxed tone for an easygoing vacation away from the 'getting and spending' of our daily routines. Stroll through the neighborhood and greet locals and fellow visitors walking their dogs, jogging, biking or bird watching. Located in the heart of the Riviera Maya, Akumal is convenient to numerous cenotes, bays and nature parks, and is within a half hour drive to Playa del Carmen and Tulum. The spectacular ruins of the ancient Maya Civilization are within a day trip as is the quaint colonial city of Valladolid. Supermarkets are a fifteen minute drive away, and there are small groceries and produce markets in the pueblo across the highway. Que Onda Restaurant is on the corner, La Lunita and Buena Vida Restaurants on the beach are within an easy walk, and in the commercial zone at the entrance to Akumal are seven more restaurants and several of convenience stores. There are also cafes, restaurants and pizzerias in Akumal Pueblo and the nearby town of Chemuyil. Some of the surrounding all-inclusive resorts offer day passes and accept outside diners at their restaurants. The golf course at the adjacent Bahia Principe resort is frequented by Akumalenos. They even have a pseudo Mexican shopping center with restaurants, tourist shops and a casino. More

About the neighbourhood
Casa Gatos is on a quiet lane that runs along the north side of the small natural park at the heart of the residential neighborhood in North Akumal. We are between Half Moon Bay and Yalku Lagoon, a few hundred meters from the entrance to each. Que Onda Restaurant is on the corner; the two restaurants on the Half Moon Beach are within a kilometer and the seven restaurants and numerous stores at the entrance to Akumal Beach are within one mile. The town with more restaurants and stores are just across the bridge over the highway. Akumal is surrounded by cenotes and nature parks. The Barrier Reef lies just offshore and you can snorkel in Yalku and along the reefs in the bays. Fishing and diving trip can be arranged at the two dive shops.
Getting around
There are taxis available in Akumal and public vans run every few minutes on the highway between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Bicycles or golf carts can be rented to get around within Akumal. Tours to major attractions can be arranged.
