Welcome to Casa Zama, a wonderful home with new ownership and updates to make it a top choice in Akumal.This ECO friendly solar powered villa has rich old world charm as it is one of the orginal villas of Akumal - with beautiful wood and expansive views, and now gorgeous new outdoor spaces taking advantage of location, location, location!  Wait until you see the views!

Privacy and views are a big draw for guests here, many say the view of Half Moon is the best from this southern tip of Half Moon Bay! Casa Zama's location is ideal, right on the water with an oceanfront pool and a sandy cove. It is just a 15+ min walk to Akumal Bay, and less than a 5 min walk to the beach in front of La Buena Vida on Half Moon Bay, both areas have fabulous restaurants, dive shops, shopping, bars, spas and more.  Many guests will recognize this property as it had its 15 minutes of fame on HGTV! 

Depending on the season, this 6BR villa can be rented also as a duplex, as two 1BR, 2BR or 3BR split-villas. Most guests prefer to rent the full 6BR villa - even if for just 2 people due to the value and convenient location. The two floors are identical in layout. They have an interior master bedroom plus they each offer 2 lock off guest suites (6 bedrooms total). The master suites are off the kitchen/living room area. The ground floor level has 2 king suite bedrooms and the 3rd BR has 2 twin beds that can be made into a king. The upper floor has 3 king suites, 2  of the bedrooms have  a futon to sleep an extra adult or 2 smaller children.  On the beach level the master has direct access to the pool, on the upper level the master has a terrace and access to the large patio adjacent to the living area. This villa has a security guard for added safety. We now have LED lights and are solar powered with electricity back-up, making the villa more eco friendly. 

Lots of recent updates thanks to the new ownership. On site staff with an English fluent manager onsite and full time night security guard. Fabulous privacy. Divine views. Sandy beach with a pool. Casa Zama is paradise, and best of all, one of the most affordable villas in Akumal, whether for 2 people or 16! You'll love having this as  your home away from home!

The views are spectacular here at Casa Zama, beautiful bay windows surround both units. There is nothing like waking up, opening the villa and taking in the multicolored ocean and Half Mooon Bay!  We love seeing the turtle heads pop up as they swim through snorkel friendly Half Moon Bay.The open living and kitchen area has ample space for all to gather, plus their is ample outdoor space for family gatherings. Each guest will have a favorite time of day here too - some will pine for the dramatic early morning sunrises over the pool and blue sea behind it, and the swaying palm trees providing shade as the sun rises above. Others will count the minutes down to happy hour poolside each day,  with the waterfall echoeing the sound of the waves, while taking in the view of the turtles surfacing in the bay.  

You may rent Casa Zama as a 6 bedroom villa with a BBQ and private pool, or rent it as small shared split villa with the pool/BBQ area for common use. Casa Zama can be a perfect choice for couples, a small family or large groups!

This place was absolutely wonderful and a good time was had by all 10 of us. The house is beautiful, great location and the bedrooms were very nice. The pool was amazing, loved the afternoon shade. If we had a suggestion it would be for the grounds keeper to pick up the sea grass on the rocks like the neighbors grounds keeper does. The staff was great and very helpful. Highly recommend this place.

Top to Bottom Fantastic! Beginning with the booking to the arrival, living arrangements, the staff, and everything in between, this is a fantastic organization as well as a property to visit.

Perfect for a Large Family Get-Together This ocean-side villa fit our family of 11 perfectly. One family of 5 took the 3 bedrooms on the main floor while my husband and I plus a family of 4 took the 3 bedrooms on the second floor. The two floors are identical and include a living room and kitchen on each. And both had outstanding views. The swimming pool (a little cool for the adults this particular December) occupied the kids while the adults enjoyed cocktails and conversations on the upper deck. The villa is within walking distance of several reasonably priced restaurants and a small grocery. If you want a longer walk, you can reach Yal Ku lagoon for snorkeling. While the beach is not directly in front of the villa, it is steps away. A great place for a family vacation.

Wonderful vacation villa for large family Casa Zama provided our family of 11 a wonderful venue to be active and relax. Right on the water, fantastic view of Half Moon Bay, and within walking distance of all the needed amenities and activities. The staff was helpful and friendly, and kept the villa clean and useable, both inside and out. Location was quiet and laid back, not like the chaos in Akumal. Good snorkeling right out front and on Akumal Beach. Not much sandy beach on HMB, so water shoes needed on the rocks. Rocky shoreline provided great opportunities for exploring cracks and crevices for sea creatures---just turn over the small rocks to find amazing things. Only negative was that the pool was too cool to enjoy. Bicycles suggested for transportation, as Akumal is vehicle "unfriendly" in regard to traffic and parking. Even golf carts have problems navigating those 2 things. Wifi and TVs worked great. 6 bedrooms and baths were super comfortable; 2 kitchens and living areas provided plenty of room to stretch out. We enjoyed La Buena Vida, La Taverna, Turtle Bay Bakery and Cafı, Lucy's Ice Cream, Imeldas Ecocina, and the many shops within walking distance. Yal Ku Lagoon is only a short walk away, but not worth it for experienced snorkelers---good for kids and beginners. Overall I would recommend Casa Zama for larger groups. Last year we were at an AI near PDC, and we decided that both the villa and the resort have pros and cons. Much depends on the personalities and favorite activities of the group. We also hired Chef Daveed to prepare our group a real Mexican meal in our kitchen. It was fun and delicious and provided left-overs for days. One day we booked an all day tour with Absolute Adventure Mexico for a jungle ATV ride, ziplining, and swimming in an open cenote. Highly recommended; the kids had a blast. It was a fantastic week on the Riviera Maya, especially since the weather back home was icy, cold, and snowy.

Great house, wonderful pool, loved being on half Moon Bay ,away from all the tourist and craziness of all Akumal beach. Staff was fabulous,House was spotless Pool and garden immaculate, loved floating in the pool looking at the water. So easy to walk to dinner,even the snorkeling was good in front of the house. Plenty of room for 12-14 people . Looks exactly like the pictures

We have rented Villas in Akumal 5 times and Casa Zama is the best having the prime location over the others. The staff was very attentive, accommodations excellent and the views quite colorful and relaxing. One unfortunate downside is the pool; it's not heated and in March was far too cold to enjoy - by enjoy, I mean even get into. (other villas have been similar in March because none of them are heated, which is unfortunate). Anyway, all the restaurants are worth recommending with the exception of La Buena Vida, which is very close to Casa Zama. The food is marginal at best and the drinks are watered down; service is questionable. This review comes after 3 visits on separate trips, never again. All in all Casa Zama is an outstanding retreat so much so that we've reserved it again in 2018. We've heard the Owner is considering having the pool heated so that would make this better than ever!

Great place! 4 of the bedrooms have separate entrances. Both units are beautiful! Staff are amazing and helpful! 2 minute walk to La Buena Vida. Short walk or bike ride (2 bikes included) into town and akumal beach. The kids loved finding hermit crabs, exploring around the coral and of course the pool! Adults enjoyed the privacy and roominess!! We will definitely be renting again!!

We would definitely recommend this house to friends, and would stay again. Clean, well cared for, great location. All 6 bedrooms have separate locks, making it easy to rent just part of the home. Beds are comfortable, rooms are large. The bowls of fruit upon arrival were a bonus. 10 out of 10!
