We stayed at Villa Italiano in late May and it was AMAZING! The house is right on the beach, literally 10 seconds from the back door to the water. We have 2 kids and we really maximized our beach time because we didn't have to lug "stuff" from the hotel to the beach and back. If we had 20 minutes to kill until dinner was ready, just head out to the beach. It was truly awesome. We went snorkeling from the house, there are great reefs right there. I saw squid, barracuda, tons of coral, and countless breeds of fish. We used the properties sea kayak as well and paddled all over. We rented a car in Cancun and used that to head over to Akumal and Tulum, and one trip up to Playa Del Carmen for groceries. House had everything we needed, the AC in the bedrooms was great too. The rest of the house stayed cool with the windows open and the sea breeze coming in. We were also there during the turtle egg laying season and got to see a Mama Loggerhead laying her eggs one night. We managed to find a Tortugera (a local turtle guide/scientist)who guided us with this, so we didn't harm or scare the turtle. Our kids LOVED it (6 and 8 year old). The property manager/owner, Ruth, lives in a smaller casita next to the main house. She was super helpful and nice, and had some great advice. Anna and Pedro are the house staff and they do a wonderful job. Pedro rakes the beach each morning, he even carefully went around our kids prized sand castles! Anna and her daughter Lucy will prepare you a local meal, and it was wonderful. We gave Ana some money fro groceries the day in advance and then paid a small fee per person the day of (very comparable to dining out). It was wonderful and the food was AMAZING!

What an incredible rental - the beach was spectacular, the sea views and ocean sounds from the bedrooms were fantastic and the price for the rental was amazingly reasonable for a BEACHFRONT house. It was a quiet area but there was lots to do within a short drive if you could tear yourself away from the gorgeous beach. Ruth, the very helpful Manager suggested that we pre-order groceries from Riviera Maya Groceries so we arrived in the evening with the refrigerator and liquor cabinet completely stocked with fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, tequila and wine so that all we had to do was change into our bathing suits and flip-flops and our beach holiday started with absolutely no stress. We were traveling with my husband's 84 year old mother and she had a great time as well with no mobility issues. Ana and the gardener came every day to keep the house and grounds spotless and be sure to have Ana and her daughter cook a fabulous local meal for you (at the beginning of your holiday, as the leftovers lasted for 4 more days!). We are looking for a time that we can return with our sons and their wives and can't recommend Villa Italiano highly enough. We have rented 2-3 Vacation Rentals every year for over 20 years and this is right at the top of the list for ambiance and value. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Date of stay 12/01/12 Our week stay was terrific! The family who owns the property really undestands how to equip a rental so you truly need for nothing. Every detail from beach towels to movies to full kitchen utensils, the home was just right for anything that we wanted to do. It is not high brow or upscale but rather a comfortable, very mexican-beachy house with an excellent location on the bay. What is truly unique about the property is the on-site property manager. She is a jewel and if you have ever rented anything in Mexico, you know that most property managers are not on property. Having her there is a great bonus for travelers not familiar with the area as she really knows the entire coast. Villa Italiano was a real find and for all of the traveling that we do, we felt that it really exceeded our expectations for service, location and a beautiful beach!

Date of stay 12/15/12 If you are looking for the perfect place to stay look no further.... this is home! This was our 6th trip to this regon of Mexico. Four years ago we brought down our whole family (5 of us) and stayed at Villa Italiano, it was perfect! We returned to Villa Italiano last week with our whole family again, we didn't have to think twice where we would be staying. The home is cozy and inviting with three bed rooms, all of which have their own bathroom. The beds are nice and soft, this is huge....trust me on this! You are on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and you are on the best part of that beach! The house keeper, gardener and manager are all there to make your stay the best it can be. Without hesitation we will be back and soon with friends in tow.

Date of stay 09/15/12Review Submitted 01/03/13 Wow, what do you say about this place... it is fantastic. When we first arrived we were like two lost sheep but a shining light came beeming in to save us. Turns out that light was the smile of the Property Manager, Ruth. She is full of useful and entertaining information to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Anna (housekeeper) and Pedro (groundskeeper) were wonderful. They were patient and helpful when we practiced our iffy Spanish with them. Villa Italiano is fully equipped with all of the amenities you need including hair dryers in every bathroom and a fully functioning bottle opener. The kayaks and water toys are an added bonus. Our only recommendation to folks is bring water shoes. While the beach in front is kept raked & beautiful by Pedro, the surf can (and does) wash up any number of possible obstacles. Our stay was easy and memorable.
Date of stay 02/02/13 We had a very nice week in Villa Italiano, the house is confortable and everthing was perfect for relaxing, have a good time in family and recovered energy. Also is a good place to go with children. My baby adored the little pool! I really recomend the house and hope to come back soon.

This was my 4th time to stay at Villa Italiano,and I will continue to go to the Villa and Akumal every year. The descriptions and pictures of the property and surrounding area do not do it justice.It gets more beautiful every year.The Villa is immaculate and always well-maintained. Ruth,and the rest of the staff are available to help in any way,and usually go above and beyond to accommodate.I recommend the Villa Italiano to anyone looking for a gorgeous,relaxing place to vacation. Or to anyone looking for a beach vacation filled with many water activities as they are right outside the back door. I look forward to next year's visit.

Everything you need is right here at Villa Italiano. Perfect location, well maintained and equipped home, the hospitality of Loren, the owner, and Ruth, the property manager, make this a wonderful vacation. We spent most evenings drinking wine on the patio listening to the waves and enjoying that view you see in the photograph above. Loren provides tons of information on everything to see and do - you don't need a guidebook, just your notes from Loren! Ruth saved us from a ruined trip due to medication forgotten at home and sent us to the best snorkeling spots. So easy and relaxing to stay here. Don't need a thing except your swimsuit. Looking forward to our return next year unless all the people reading this have already booked this lovely spot.
