Rent this stunning masterpiece of a home,which is situated on a gorgeous private beach in Jade Bay. This truly amazing villa offers everything one could ever wish for a special holiday on the Mexican Caribbean. The owners of Villa Palmilla have thought of every detail in creating a well thought out, custom built luxury vacation home!
Walking through the entrance you will find yourself standing in a lush, shaded garden containing lush, tropical foliage. The walkway to the front door leads past a small rock pool, surrounded by potted plants and palms, where two fountains soothingly spill trickles of water into the aqua pool below. What a splendid experience this has been so far?and this is only the beginning!
Leaving the garden behind while opening the giant mahogany front door, you will immediately find yourself standing in a vast living area characterized by subtle, yet unquestionably tasteful elegance. To the right of the entrance is the fully stocked kitchen with walk-in pantry. The kitchen is accessorized with black granite countertops, a separate stand alone refrigerator/freezer unit, and a deluxe double oven. Tucked inside the central kitchen bar with three beautiful wicker stools is a custom made, built in refrigerated wine chiller. Store bottles of wine for that special occasion in the brick walk-in wine cellar! And enjoy scrumptious meals on a beautiful 8 person dining table made of Chechen, a lovely wood indigenous to the Yucatan Peninsula.
To the left of the entrance is the living area filled with exquisitely comfortable furniture, a color satellite TV, VCR, DVD player, and a five disc CD changer. This expansive room, which joins with the kitchen and dining area, features two floor to ceiling glass walls overlooking the spacious pool with a lap swimming section and the inviting aquamarine waters of the Caribbean ocean. Stepping out into the back yard is yet another incredible experience. Many comfortable chaise lounge chairs around the pool with two large umbrellas ensure that no one misses out on the sun and fun. For those who need to take a nap in the shade, there is plenty of cushioned furniture on the balcony both upstairs and downstairs under the ceiling fans. Surround sound speakers in the downstairs balcony add the perfect relaxing touch to enjoying your poolside pina colada! On a clear night under a thousand stars prepare a family BBQ on the stone grill while sitting around the recessed stone fire pit enjoying cool beverages.
As you ascend the mahogany and wrought iron stairway, you enter a stunning marble hallway filled with two rows of decorative windows facing the front garden. These gorgeous windows are from Germany, as are all the windows in Villa Palmilla, and offer the utmost in security and weather protection. Three bedrooms branch out from the hallway, all of which are stocked with quality linens and are extremely spacious with sitting areas and ensuite bathrooms.
The master suite has a king bed and gorgeous balcony with a spectacular view of the ocean. A high powered, free standing telescope is available for the avid stargazer.

The master bath has an incredible sunken spa tub with a view of the turquoise ocean. The first guest suite also has a king bed and shares the same lovely balcony and amazing ocean view as the master suite. The second guest suite has two twin beds that can be made into a king size bed, complete with satellite TV. This suite has its own separate balcony with a great view of the ocean. All of the bathrooms have marble countertops and all of the shower heads both inside and out are from Italy. A safe for storing valuables is located in each bedroom.

Villa Palmilla, Jade Bay, Akumal
Edward K. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2016 Wonderful, elegant, tasteful villa for a few couples or a small family group.Well maintained, well designed, well appointed, classy place.Great views, great outdoor spaces and ocean views and access. Staff is fabulous, efficient, courteous and very helpful. Location has great access to Tulum area, Akumal area and Playa del Carmen areas all within 20-30km of villa with lots of activities, restaurants, secluded beaches, etc. The ONLY negative about this villa is that the beach is somewhat rocky and water can be a bit rough. For someone who wants wide beach of powder sand and calm water, this is not that. However, if you like to dive or snorkel right outside your villa, this is perfect. You can walk up the beach to the main Akumal beach in a few minutes. We did have an issue with TV access in the Master Bedroom, but I imagine that is repaired now. We didn't want to watch much TV anyway, and there were other working TVs in the villa. Wifi actually worked pretty well and cell service was adequate.
A guest from Mendham, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 As a family of four with 2 adult children, we had the vacation of a lifetime. The Villa is beautiful, clean and the staff is excellent. The ocean view and pool makes up for the fact that the beach is rocky and the ocean hard to swim in. We drove into Akumal a few times for lunch but other than that we just enjoyed the beautiful Villa and lovely dinners made by Paedro. It was a totally relaxing week and just what we needed.
Diana M. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 This is my sixth stay at Villa Palmilla. To say that it is beautiful is an understatement. The mood is set the minute you walk through the gate into the courtyard. Opening the uniquely hinged front door, you find the sight of the ocean straight ahead. Everything in the house is carefully chosen. The house is immaculate and has everything you could need or want. Margarit keeps it spotless and Pedro maintains the outside perfectly. If you choose this villa, you will not be disappointed. We enjoyed many restaurants along the beach at Tulum, including La Zebra, Bistro at Ziggy Beach, and especially Arca, next to Hartwood and I found to be better, plus they take reservations for small parties.
Alberto D P. from San Pedro Garza Garcia, NL recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2015 The house is beautiful very well built and decorated. The house service is excelent and very friendly and go beyond in order to make you fell welcome and taken care. Great location with easy access and close to many attractions.
Diana M. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in July, 2014 This was our fifth stay at Villa Palmilla. To say we love it is an understatement. From the minute you walk through the gate into the courtyard, you realize you are inn paradise. When you open the amazing front door, you immediately see the ocean. The home is beautiful, the staff is great, and the pool is inviting. This is the perfect place for your vacation. Be sure to check out La Zebra on the Tulum beach (right at the fork) and ask for Fernando for a great meal. Also enoyed the Bistro at Ziggy Beach (Tulum, right at fork) and Lo Ha in Alumal. Great sticky buns at Turtle Bay Bakery in Akumal. Good snorkeling in Akumal bay, at Casa Cenote, and Yal Kul lagoon.
Diana M. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in July, 2012 Villa Palmilla is a beautiful villa. It is truly a pleasure the moment you walk through the gates and enter the courtyard and doesn't end. Everything is perfect---the decor, the staff, the location. Can't wait to get back next year. Have stayed at Villa Palmilla the past three summers.
A guest from Latham, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2012 My family and I have stayed in many villas in south, north, half-moon bay, ya-kul lagoon and right in Akumal near the dive shop and this was by far the nicest villa on all accounts! We loved it and will mkst certainly like to go back! I a specially liked the management team that worked at the house. Roger the property manager was very friendly and accommodating, Roger the grounds keeper and amazing cook! (our best meals were at the house the whole week) and Margarite was very sweet and kept the house beautifully spotless! The owners need to know what an amazing house they created esthetically and every detail is impeccable! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Diana M. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in August, 2010 I have stayed at several villas in the Akumal area and Villa Palmilla is definitely my favorite. Everything about it is first rate---from the interior, to the grounds, to the staff. Hope to come back soon.
Ann F. from South Lyon, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2007 When I rented Palmilla for my family's vacation, I had high expectations about the property because of price. When we arrive, however, it was really great that all of our expectations were significantly surpassed. The house is beautiful, the people from the property management company and the two people who took care of our house each day were excellent. We also had them cook some meals for us and it was better than any five star restaurant. Other than a few chilly days, we could not have picked a better place, a better staff or had a better time. No one will be disappointed.
