Yes, Casa Sea Gate has a great sea view, but there's more to it than that. Sea Gate is an excellent choice for family vacations; with 4 air conditioned bedrooms, swimming pool, barbecue grilling area, multiple terraces and patios, and best yet, a location just 5 minutes away from central Akumal and the main beach.
The swimming pool area is on the way to the front door and has a 360º wrap around limestone tanning deck with plenty of lounge chairs. A barbecue grilling area with a built-in charcoal grill and fryer is on one side, and a shade palapa with table and chairs (or hammock) is on the other. The curvature of the house provides some shelter from the sea breeze making cookouts more enjoyable (no flying plates!). Exterior doors open from both the main living area and the kitchen to facilitate entertaining by the pool. Families will appreciate this little feature as they enjoy the pool area.
Inside the front door is the main living space with the living room in front and a formal dining area off to one side. Both the living and dining areas face the sea view and there are two glass sliders from the living room to the ocean side patio. The dining has a large arched window with a sea view. Next to the dining room is the entertainment room with satellite TV, DVD, CD stereo, and a small library of books and CDs. An L shaped couch faces the TV and there is a window facing the ocean. Across from the entertainment room is a fully equipped kitchen with the major appliances, dishwasher, blender, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Kitchen windows face the pool deck and a door conveniently opens to the pool deck.
There are 4 air conditioned bedrooms, one on the lower level and three on the upper level. All face the sea and each has its own full bathroom. The lower level bedroom has a king bed and glass slider to its own little porch, and then to the main ocean side patio. Upstairs, the three remaining bedrooms are connected by a pool view terrace which doubles as a lounge with table, chairs and a little built-in love seat (great for watching the sunset). Each of these three bedrooms has its own private ocean view balcony. The first is at the top of the winding stairway and has two double beds and a single bed. Next, the master bedroom has a king size bed, larger balcony and comfy little couch. And on the north end the 4th bedroom has a king bed, private bathroom and ocean balcony.
Outside on the ocean side is a nice wide patio with table and chairs, a couple sun lounges and a oceanfront shade arbor a closer to the sea. There's plenty of space to spread out and be mellow, watching the wave roll in.
Up on the roof is a nice U shaped built-in sofa area that is front and center on the 360º panoramic view of sea and jungle. This is an excellent place for sunrises with coffee, sunsets with your favorite drink, or stargazing with a loved one. All points considered, Casa Sea Gate is a fine choice for groups up to eight people.
