Why not try a place beyond the ordinary. Experience homelike comfort combined with friendly yet unobtrusive hospitality. Departing guests often comment on how much they felt at home while at Casa Gatos. Our apartments are tastefully furnished, each with its distinctive character; in Suite 103 art and artifacts from China and Japan provide an oriental accent.

Relax outdoors in our secluded tropical garden, on your balcony or the rooftop terrace garden with its palapa covered gazebo.

The space

Casa Gatos is a private gated villa in the laid back and friendly community of Akumal, which stretches along three bays on the Caribbean coast of Mexico's Riviera Maya 60 miles south of Cancun. The house is conveniently located for access to Yalku Lagoon, where our guests have discounted entry, and the beach on Half Moon Bay. On a quiet lane off the main beach road and opposite a natural park, it offers privacy and tranquility.

Suite 103 is a comfortable two bedroom apartment on the upper level and accommodates up to five guests. The front bedroom contains a queen bed and sitting area for reading or watching satellite TV. French doors lead to a shaded balcony overlooking the garden. The large rear bedroom has a king bed and a double futon for sitting or additional sleeping accommodations. Each bedroom has independent access to the bathroom. Off the central hall lies the fully equipped kitchen and dining area. The apartment is tastefully decorated with Oriental and Mexican art and antiques.

The roof garden has areas for sunning and a tented gazebo for shade and beautiful views of sunsets and dawns over North Akumal and the surrounding waters. For more ambitious guests, we have installed an air conditioned fitness room with treadmill, weight machine, elliptical and rowing machines.

Guest access

Guests can relax on the balconies, garden terrace or central courtyard of Palm Trees and tropical plants, or they can go up to the roof garden to enjoy the view, read in the shade of the gazebo or lie in the sun. As a change of pace, they have access to the exercise machines in the air conditioned Fitness Room.

Interaction with guests

We offer our guests unobtrusive hospitality, according to their inclination. We are on the property full time and are available to answer questions or assist in any way.

My adult son, his girlfriend and I went to Akumal for diving and snorkeling, and Casa Gatos was the perfect place for us. Staying with Dan and David was like visiting your favorite uncles -- they hosted us for an amazing breakfast the first morning and shared very valuable insider tips about the area and logistical help when we needed it. They got us the local rate for admission to Yalku, an amazing cenote/lagoon for snorkeling just half a block away. They also showed us the short walk to Half Moon Bay, with a shallow reef and exceptional snorkeling. Everything was terrific, but we especially appreciated the bottled water dispensers, rooftop lounge chairs with thatched roof and great views, outstanding cleaning service by Manuela (she even did our breakfast dishes when we ran off to dive), and the sweet, shy resident dog and cats. If you dive with the Akumal Dive Center as we did (fantastic!), I recommend a car or bikes, because it's a rather long road to get there. But we loved our quiet location away from the main strip (with the extra bonus of a terrific restaurant right next door, Que Onda, with homemade pasta and an excellent lunch place at Yalku). (Bring plenty of Mexican or U.S. cash; we were surprised to find that many restaurants don't take credit cards.) Thanks, Dan and David, we'll be back!

We loved both Dan and David. They are essentially the perfect hosts, and made us feel like family.

Casa Gatos es hermosa. Ideal para estar cerca de la playa y a la vez, en un lugar tranquilo. Dan y Dave son unos excelentes anfitriones. Nos invitaron con un delicioso desayuno el primer día y nos prestaron equipo para hacer snorkel. Hicieron que nuestra estadía en Akumal fuera aún más placentera. La casa es muy amplia, equipada con todo lo necesario, incluído bidones con agua mineral. Además, tienen una terraza con reposeras desde la que ver el atardecer. Ojalá podamos volver!
