The only and most charming luxury beachfront cottage on the Riviera Maya

Adults-only beach villa
A charming and comfortable beachfront cottage, located at Jade Bay in Akumal, Riviera Maya, Mexico. The cottage is privately located in the beautiful tropical garden of a private gated property. Its terrace is only 15 yards from the beach and a 10 minute beach walk from Akumal Village. A choice of cozy restaurants will satisfy your appetite. Akumal, 'the place of the turtles', is located between Playa del Carmen with its European flavoured vivid night life and Tulum with its historical Maya ruins. Carpark, private gate, and much more. To find out more visit our website, see link in 'Further Details' below.

Beautiful Beachfront Cottage: Usually, beach front villas along the Riviera Maya are big and not meant for a couple or small family to stay, they have usually 5+ bedrooms. The weekly rates are high and not affordable unless you shop around to fill the beds. Our Cottage offers you the Caribbean beachfront joy, the privacy of your own secluded tropical garden and beachfront. An affordable alternative in paradise!

How to Get There: Conveniently located close to the highway 307 from Cancun to Tulum, exit Las Villas Akumal, km 253. Isla Escape can be reached by public transportation with a transfer to the Paradas Continuas or a taxi at Playa del Carmen. All major car rental companies are present at Cancun airport. Car rental is also available at Akumal. Detailed routing will be provided with your booking confirmation through our website.

Where to Go, What to Do: This holiday destination offers a great variety of cultural, historical and leisure activities. If you don`t like 'activities' you may simply lay back and relax on the terrace or the beach with a good book and the ever lasting sound of the ocean. For an extensive tour and information of the area, please visit our website.

5/5 Excellent

Everything was just perfect! Jacob made everything so easy, the basic groceries we found on our arrival were appreciated! Margarita made sure everything was cleaned spotlessly every day. The outside space and views are second to none. .we only wish we could have stayed longer!!

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This place was the most relaxing home for two couples. Jacob was a fabulous resource of information and conversation! Every evening we went out with a flashlight to help local volunteers with marking the area of nesting sea turtles. We even watched a meteor shower one night!!

Amazing Cottage
Words can’t describe what a beautiful piece of property this is. Pictures don’t do it justice at all. Great location, easy walk on the beach to Akumal and all the restaurants. Super quiet and private at the cottage and the owner Jacob lives next door. He was such a great host, had a wealth of knowledge on all the questions we had. We loved our stay at Isla Escape, very hard to leave this little piece of paradise. Thank you Jacob!!!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful beach breezes
If you’re looking for a sanctuary with a constant breeze and view of the azure blue sea, look no further. Jakob has created a wonderful spot to sit out, day or night, on the comfortably furnished patio or right out at the edge of the property just over the beach. Kayaks will keep you busy as will a short walk to town on the sand to grab a bite at any of a myriad of restaurants. But if you’re like me, busy is the last thing you’re looking for!

5/5 Excellent

Believe the reviews!
Yes, this really is a wonderful place with a great host. It was perfect for two couples. Comfortable beds, inviting outdoor spaces and peaceful. Easy walk on the beach to the restaurants and shops of Akumal. Akumal is a delightful location away from the bustle of Tulum and Play aDel Carmen, but close enough to both for quick day trips. Three house is located on a quiet road of private homes and condos with friendly neighbors. Truly special.
