Casa Magica, blends modern comforts with the appeal of ancient worlds!!
Magic House in Spanish Nestled on the white sand beaches of Jade Bay, amid lush tropical palms, lies Casa Magica. This four bedroom, four and a half bath dream home will cast a spell over you and entice you to vacation in absolute luxury!
Upon entrance, feel your stresses fade as the warm earthen colors used throughout the villa embrace you and lift your spirits. The décor, best described as a rustic tropical charm, blends modern comforts with the appeal of ancient worlds. Statues and ceramic figurines adorn small corners and spaces, catching the passing eye. Scattered thoughtfully about the entire villa, large ceramic painted pots, housing palms and other plants, help all rooms come to life.
An open and spacious floor plan creates a sense of unity among the living, kitchen and dining areas. The elegant wicker sofas piled high with pillows of warm greens and reds create a cozy living room, while the two-story domed brick ceiling towers majestically above. The solid wood dining table, surrounded by eight fabulously comfortable chairs, entices you to try a traditional Mexican feast prepared and served to you in this ideal location. Or, if you would rather create your own dining delicacies, this enormous and completely equipped kitchen will appease even the most discerning chef!
Stepping beyond the glass doors of the living and dining areas, an amazing pool and graciously covered patio areas awaits you. Deep blue and inviting, the pool of varied depths is a perfect place to take a refreshing dip. With ledges and steps, there are places for ultimate sunning within the refreshing waters. Framing the pool is lush, soft lawn intersected with small, cement pathways which lead to individual sunning decks. A unique wooden gazebo borders the pool providing slightly shaded, oceanfront seating - the ideal location for sipping afternoon margaritas!
The downstairs master suite has huge sliding glass doors leading out into this wonderland. Within these doors, you will find the ocean view king-sized master bedroom, with a huge bath and oversized shower. The nearly identical upstairs master suite offers a private, covered, oceanfront balcony as well as an enormous bath with double sinks and an oversized shower and tub! Wake up to a mesmerizing view of the turquoise and emerald Caribbean waters in the third bedroom as well! Offering a king-sized bed and private bath, the focus of this room drifts to the exclusive and enormous oceanfront balcony. Finally, the darling fourth bedroom, which houses two queen beds and a private bath, showcases a jungle view through enormous panoramic windows. Also containing its own private ocean view balcony, this bedroom lacks nothing.
As one of the newly discovered beaches in the Riviera Maya, Jade Bay is a secret worth mentioning. Inhabiting its protected, crystal clear waters lie incredible corals and colorful tropical fish just waiting to be snorkeled among. During the summer months, endangered Sea Turtles will exit the ocean and lay their eggs on the beaches of Jade Bay. You chance being witness to the exquisite natural wonder of watching droves of baby turtles erupt from their nest in the sand and make their way to the mother ocean. Truly an experience of a lifetime!
While private and quiet, Jade Bay is only a short stroll along the beach to the heart of Akumal, with shops and restaurants, diving facilities, and much more. If you are the adventuresome type, discover the mysteries of the Ancient Mayan civilizations, go shopping along 5th Avenue of Playa del Carmen, take a deep sea fishing excursion, treat yourself to a rejuvenating massage?the choices are yours to make!

A magical stay at Casa Magica
Mary J H. from Hilton Head Island, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2016 We selected Casa Magica for a family holiday. Mom and Dad traveled to Akumal from Hilton Head Island, SC, Our party of 6 came from SC, HI & OR. Previous year's destinations included Mt. Hood and Hawaii and the properties we rented there didn't measure up to the descriptions on the websites.From the moment we arrived at Casa Magica, we were thrilled with everything. It was dark when we got in, but chef Emilio, who we had engaged was there with sous chef Didier- preparing a fabulous welcome meal. We wandered through the house, amazed at how fabulous it was! Bedrooms and ensuite baths were large and beautiful. Bed and bath linens above expectationsThe grounds are gorgeous --- beautiful pool, palapa, terrace and porches! Beachfront takes on a new meaning..... and the sand was raked and any seaweed removed every morning by Marcos, who also was available for anything we needed during our stay. Reina came every morning to tidy up, make beds, etc --- she was so sweet and had the prettiest smile! With Chef Emilio coming morning and evening to prepare our meals (and doing all the grocery shopping, table setting and clean-up, we didn't lift a finger to do anything except relax and enjoy the beach, house and surrounding areas. Kayaks and snorkeling gear were there -- pretty much everything except sunscreen!!The house was guarded in the evening and we always felt safe. The only issue we had was someone reaching through a window that had accidentally been left open while we were out one afternoon to steal a couple of bottles of liquor. Casa Magica is truly magical - our family enjoyed this holiday immensely and we would definitely return. Gustavo - the property manager and Martina who assisted with Chef Services and communicated at every step of planning with information and suggestions -- were invaluable and I would not hesitate to recommend Akumal Properties LLC to others.
Karen M. from Vancouver, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2016 Wow! From start to finish beyond any expectations. I truly couldn't have dreamt up a more perfect place and property, as well as all the staff. We felt welcome and at home instantly. It was more than a perfect venue for our wedding. Our chef service was outstanding! Manuel I really loved all of your meals and the variety of salsas....fish tacos......this is absolutely the way to go with a large group, and the meals all 5 star.
A guest from Fort Myers, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2016 Family vacation with our kids and two small grandchildren. Accommodations worked great. Hired staff to prepare a supper which was great. Very accommodating crib and high chair were onsite as requested. Overall we had a great time. Area is very nice.
Aaron C. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 It was an absolutely wonderful time. The house was in great shape and being so secluded made it even nicer. Reyna and Marcos were great and helped out in many ways. We could have not asked for a better vacation. There were 10 in the house and it felt very spacious.
Lynnette B. from Boulder, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2016 Casa Magica was nice and big and roomy. Plenty of room for our family of 10.The villa is gorguous. The staff is great even a night watch man!Beach is perfect. I have stayed in many properties in this region and Casa Magica is the best for the big family!
Lyndsay D. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 The house was great-very spacious and each room with it's own bathroom. The view was amazing, the setting was perfect! We were able to spend the entire week on our beach and in the pool without being harassed by vendors. The house was equipped with everything we would ever have needed and we used the kayaks daily! The people who helped out with the house made the stay-Marcos was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed and was just an overall great guy! He was able to arrange rides, outings to ruins, cents, snorkeling, massages on the beach, trips to the grocery store! We had an issue originally with no hot water in two of the showers and he made sure that was fixed immediately. His wife was also able to cook for us a couple of times and it was delicious! Cruz made sure the house was cleaned daily and she did an amazing job. Gustavo stopped by the house to check on us as well-overall an amazing week for our group of friends and we can't wait to do it again!
A guest from Centennial, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 Beautiful home, great staff, perfect amenities with pool, kayaks, snorkel gear, and beach toys. Only minor issue was US dvd's not compatible with Mexican DVD players - some sort of encoding problem. Highly recommend private chef service!
Paul K. from Edwards,, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2015 Our stay at Casa Magica was excellent. The villas was beautiful and accommodated our group perfectly. The house was clean and maintained by friendly staff daily
A guest from Powell River,, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2014 This house was perfect for our family of twelve! It was very privet and had a breath taking view! The staff were friendly and really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. They were fabulous cooks and made us a two authentic Mexican dinners while we were there. They taught us a few words of spanish and even opened a few coconuts right from the coconut tress on the property. We had fresh coconut water in the fridge all week! Another highlight was a 15 minute stroll down the beach to Akuamal. Their beautiful public beach had something for everyone. We had a great lunch at a Cabana restaurant. As well, there was a beach bar, snack bar and the water was crystal clear for a swim or snorkel. We were very happy staying at Casa Magica and would absoultly recommend it. It really was Magical!!
Martha W. from Atlanta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 The house was amazing! We especially loved the outdoor areas, the pool, and the palapa. We ate outside at the dining table every night. We were so excited to see the sea turtles hatch! My only wish was that there was an accessible washer/dryer...a week with kids and no ability to clean clothes is a challenge. I am pretty sure that the website advertises that this property has a washer/dryer, so you should take that off the listing.
A guest from NEW YORK, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 Fantastic, quiet location just a few miles south of the village of Akumal. Beautiful beach with more privacy than village beach or lagoon. House was spacious and comfortable; staff were great. The only one very minor with the house - it has no laundry! So pack well and enjoy!!
Kurt U. from Broomfield,, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 Amazing, amazing beach house....Casa Magica. I just got back from my wedding and it was the time of our lives. Beautifully decorated with loads of Mexican flair. The wedding day, unfortunately, was rainy....ughh! But fortunately for us Casa Magica is so beautiful on the inside (and out) that it was a smashing success! I have to say how wonderful the caretakers of the house, Marcos and Reina, were! Mucho Gusto! They were so nice and made us feel very welcome. We will never forget our time at Magica. Muchas gracia por todo!
Katryna H. from Alberta, Canada recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2013 We had a fantastic week at Casa Magica with Marco and Reyna. The house is beautiful and spacious. Our party consisted of two families; 4 adults and 7 children (aged 1-9). Shortly after our arrival Gustavo visited us at the house and gave us a basket overflowing with fruit, which was very generous! Each of the large bedrooms is beautifully decorated and gave our families some privacy. The kitchen was very well stocked with cookware and an assortment of dishes. The yard was in excellent condition, with comfortable beach loungers and lots of shade under the cabana and umbrellas. The landscaping is beautiful and very well maintained. Marco and Reyna were perfect hosts and we were sad to say good bye to them. We thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the pool with the children and exploring the beach every day. Unfortunately the weather was too windy to make use of the kayaks as the waves made it unsafe. We enjoyed several days playing in the sand and swimming/snorkelling with the children in Akumal. We spent a day at Xcaret where the children enjoyed seeing the animals and swimming at the beach in the tubes. The evening performance is excellent and we would consider returning to Xcaret just for the evening performance and the meal option. The other family that stayed in the home with us also spent a day at Xel-Ha and were very impressed with the variety of fish they saw. The house is very conveniently located along the coast, making it easy and quick to visit Playa del Carmen for some shopping or explore the ruins at Tulum. We would definitely consider returning to Casa Magica again and would recommend the home and its staff without hesitation.
Carlos R. from Houston, Tx, recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2013 We had excellent time at Casa Mágica. The house is beautiful, an ideal place to rest and recharge your batteries and have fun with the family. The staff is very friendly and the sunrise is breathtaking. Only issue we had was with the Internet, not allowing you to send longer files. By the way, do not get into the Kayaks without proper shoes, we learned our lesson when our kayak was stuck at the Coral reef. Better use wet shoes at all time!
Juan Carlos G. from Merida, Yucatan recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Muy buena casa y buen servicio. No es la mejor playa de la zona pero se puede entrar al mar por una apertura entre los corales. Los aires acondicionados son un poco ruidosos.
A guest from Chicago,, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in February, 2012 Beautiful, spacious, well-maintained home with all amenities. Staff members Gustav, Maria and Marcus worked hard and couldn't have been kinder.
Barry S. from New York, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2011 Wonderful especially with Marcos and Reina as cook and housekeepers. Location fabulous. Spotless. I would suggest the dishwasher ( did not clean dishes) and stove ( starter not working on any burner or oven) be replaced. Otherwise, we would definitely come back. The combination of proximity to beach ( back door ) and sunshine is tough to beat. Super golf 5 minutes away as well.
John P. from Harrisburg, PA recommends this property.
