Villa de Valhalla
6 bedroom ocean front villa rental Akumal Mexico
Mayan Riviera
for groups of up to a maximum of 18 people

     

Boasting a spacious, open, and bright 6,900 sq. ft. with 6 nearly equal oceanfront bedrooms, Villa Valhalla is the perfect Akumal vacation villa for a large group who doesn't want to draw straws to see who gets the best room.  

With an enviable Akumal location on the southern end of tranquil Half Moon Bay, Villa Valhalla is only a short stroll to the Akumal commercial center meaning there is no need for a vehicle here.  Within walking distance of Villa Valhalla are restaurants, bars, dive shops, convenience stores, gift shops, ATM, snorkelling excursions and deep sea fishing charters.

Villa Valhalla lends itself perfectly for entertaining.  Large, inviting and open communal areas inside and out allow the group to comfortably spend time together preparing and/or sharing a meal, lounging around the pool, exchanging conversation, experiencing the fabulous views or watching a movie.

Villa Valhalla is unique to Akumal with 6 ample oceanfront bedrooms, all outfitted with en-suite bathrooms, covered viewing terraces, internet connections and TV with both satellite and DVD players.  All of the Villa Valhalla bedrooms have Twin beds that can be converted into Kings.  Plus a futon couch that can be made up as a Queen bed.  This combination provides a great amount of flexibility to configure the sleeping arrangements to each groups needs.

After you pull in to the off street parking and enter Villa Valhalla, you will be taken by how deceivingly small the villa looks from the street. 

An ample entry foyer opens up to an expansive great room that stretches further out and on to a large covered terrace facing the pool and ocean.

The great room at Villa Valhalla is .... well .... GREAT .... for gathering and entertaining.  It is warm, airy and casually inviting. 

With a wall full of sliding glass doors leading out to a large covered terrace with additional living and dining areas, this truly does become a GREAT ROOM...

The 2 dining tables each seat 10 comfortably and are separated by a sliding glass door.

Villa Valhalla expansive and fully outfitted kitchen extends the other direction from the great room.  It opens to the dining area with a large pass through ensuring that even when in the kitchen, you are still not out of the flow of conversation.

On the ground floor of Villa Valhalla are 2 of the 6 en-suite bedrooms.  All of the bedrooms are of a similar size and layout.  Each bedroom has Twin beds that can be set up as a King size.  Additionally there is a Queen size futon in every bedroom should they be needed.  Each of the bedrooms has a sliding glass door leading out to a covered terrace.  All bedrooms are equipped with TV, satellite and DVD players.  All of the Villa Valhalla bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom with tub/shower combinations.  The exception is one of the bedrooms on the ground floor.  This bedroom has been handicap modified with wider doors, lower counter tops and a shower in the bathroom with wide opening all tastefully done so as not to appear institutional in any way.  Removable ramps provide wheel chair access into the home and out to the pool area should they be required.

On the second floor at the top of the landing is a large entertainment room.  This room has a wrap around couch, large screen TV with satellite and DVD, computer center with wireless internet (bring your lap top with you), desk and attached terrace with seating to enjoy the jungle view.

Just like the main floor bedrooms, each of the four suites on the 2nd floor, have King beds which can be split into Twins, plus a Queen futon, sitting area, attached en-suite bathrooms with shower/tub combinations, satellite TV with DVD and sliding glass doors leading out to a large covered terrace.

A large oceanfront terrace stretches in front of 3 of the 4 second floor bedrooms providing an inviting place to relax and take in the pool and ocean views.  The 4th bedroom is slightly set back providing a private terrace allowing for a little intimacy without sacrificing the postcard views.

Villa Valhalla rooftop mirador provides a spectacular view of Half Moon Bay.  A sitting area to enjoy the panoramic view over a late afternoon cocktail or a day bed to tan or star gaze, makes this another wonderful space to enjoy.

Returning to ground level.  Villa Valhalla has a large pool with infinity edge creating the illusion that the pool just carries on straight into the ocean.  The pool has a shallow end for children and a large thatch roof palapa with hammocks to hang out to in the shade. 

Just beyond the pool is a man made sandy area.  Beyond that it is rocky coral which can make it difficult to get in and out of the water directly in front of the villa,  BUT... this coral provides good habitat for sea life so the snorkelling is good right here.

A very short stroll down the oceanfront will take you to a sandy beach where it is easy to get into the water for swimming and wading.   The Akumal icon 'Buena Vida Beach Bar and Restaurant' and a dive shop are both conveniently located right there on the beach just a couple minutes stroll from Villa Valhalla.

Here are a few of our GUESTS COMMENTS from the pages of the guest book:

Dear Desiree and Doug,  I am anxious to let you know what a successful and thoroughly enjoyable vacation we had in Akumal.  Villa Valhalla is a beautiful home and perfectly accommodated our group of 12 with ease.  There was plenty of room to congregate together and plenty of room to get away from each other.  The beds were comfortable, the pool clean and clear and the view was spectacular.  We were visited by Alfredo from the management company on Sunday and he answered the questions we had and took care of a few problems we were having (the blenders were broken, but he delivered a new one early the next day; helped us to light the oven).  The maids were lovely and discrete (we hardly knew they were there) and did a good job cleaning each day; Luis was friendly and helpful.  We enjoyed getting to know all of them.  Here is some feedback for the owner: We reported that the grill did not work properly.  Luis and Alfredo worked on it and Luis spent quite a bit of time cleaning it.  He did get it to light and said it was fixed.  However, we tried to use it that evening and, although we did get it to light it never got hot enough to cook our food.  That was disappointing as we had planned to dine at the villa most nights which we were unable to do.  Also, the ice maker in the freezers do not work.  Not huge problems but I am sure the owner will want to address these items.  I fell in love with Akumal.  It is the greatest little spot!  Small enough to get around without a car yet it had plenty to offer for recreation, dining and souvenir shopping.  I found a great yoga studio and met my husband for breakfast at Imelda's a few times during the week.  Friends took advantage of the expertise at the Akumal Dive Shop to become PADI certified.  We snorkled right off the beaches and saw plenty of marine life.  We ran out of days to accomplish all we wanted to do - because it was just too easy to hang by the pool/beach and relax.  As for the services of Brisa Caribe, I could not be more pleased.  You recommended a villa to perfectly suit our needs.  I did not know Akumal and was hesitant to stay there but you assured me it would be perfect - and it was.  Desiree graciously and patiently arranged our airport transfers (Angela and her team at SuperTrans were very pleasant and professional) and answered my many questions.  Any additional questions were answered on your website and in the very helpful booklets you provided.  As you can tell, I am still on a high from our vacation in Akumal.  We had a great time!  I will visit Akumal again, either with a group of friends or just my husband.  When we do, I will be sure to contact Brisa Caribe.  Adios, and muchas gracias. Mary Jo   PS: I will happily provide a good reference for you to new clients when you need one.

ONLINE REVIEW:  The worst thing about our trip was that we were only there for a week. I can't say enough about Villa Valhalla, Doug @ Brisa Caribe, and the chef service (Chef Daveed) we enjoyed during our stay. From the pickup at the airport to the drop-off (and a few tears) on our last day, everything met or exceeded our expectations (and I don't think I can say that about a prior vacation). We were a group of 12: 3 families of 4. Doug was great in helping us figure out where to stay, the pros and cons of each place etc. And when we settled on Villa Valhalla he gave us everything we needed to "hit the ground running". Villa Valhalla was even better than advertised (the photos can't do it justice). Beautiful modern home, spotless throughout, 6 great bed/bath combinations (no arguing about who got the best room), lots of great space to relax, eat, etc. We spent a lot of time in and around the pool - the kids (ages 3 to 7) had a blast. With young kids we realized that we were actually happy that there wasn't a beautiful sandy beach right in front - because they were less likely to go wandering or get into any trouble. They played in the tide pools and explored a lot, but stayed close to the property. And just down the road (10 minute walk but we hired a couple of golf carts which worked out well) is a spectacular beach that we spent plenty of time at. Snorkeling right off the beach to see fish and lots of turtles - it was the easiest snorkeling imaginable (the 4 years olds would have done it for hours). We hired a chef service which seemed (and is) very decadent and it was probably the best decision we made. Chef Daveed (and Isaac, and friends) was brilliant, and not having to worry about groceries and cooking made for stress-free days. "Top chef" food, brilliant service, and Daveed and Isaac are the nicest people you could meet. They also gave us plenty of good advice on where to go exploring. You could easily just stay at the house but I'd also recommend wandering a couple of mins down to the bar next to the dive shop )(where you can hire snorkels etc). Typical low key beach bar with swings and a nice vibe. We also headed to a nearby lagoon for snorkeling (lots of fish but we preferred the ocean), and took an afternoon trip to the Tulum ruins (worth doing, and the town of Tulum is fun (and the beach is amazing)). It's hard to overstate how great this place is. My only worry is that too many others will find out and it will be booked the next time we try to go.

Hi Doug, I don't always write reviews but please let me know where the best place is for me to say great things about Villa Valhalla / your service / Chef Daveed and I'll do it. Our trip was far too short but it was absolutely fantastic. So good that all the (3) families said let's just book the same place and everything else that goes with it next year - no changes needed. The house was, if anything, even better than the photos suggested. Pool was amazing, the rooms were fantastic and absolutely spotless. Literally not one negative thing I (or others) could say. And Daveed and Isaac were brilliant. We went out for a couple of meals and they were the worst meals we had. We could have happily had every meal in the house. Plus the transport service was exactly as expected. All in all it was a completely stress free and satisfying break - our group of 12 has traveled together a few times and never had it so good.  So, thank you very much for all your help (and patience). We're very happy. Austin S. 

Doug, We had an amazing week, thank you. The house was fantastic and the service was top notch!  Thank you for everything.  Tom W.
