The Mayan Royalties might have been surrounded by many luxuries during their time, but even they would not mind having Casa Gatos as their summer ‘residence’.
Situated among the peaceful garden courtyard near Yal Ku Lagoon in North Akumal, Casa Gatos is composed of three beautiful condominiums which are sure to meet your standards when it comes to value, quality and desire for privacy.
The three separate condominium units, despite their modernity and splendor, impart that distinct Mexican hospitality. Even the buildings speak of a warm welcome, and as soon as you are inside, you’ll feel like you’ve come home.
All that is left to do is choose the Yal Ku Lagoon’s vacation house that Fits YOU Best!
You will definitely appreciate one of our one-bedroom apartments. Everything – an open living room, a cozy kitchen and a colorful bathroom reflect typical Mexican style.
To follow the best Mayan traditions to the dot, you can first opt for a cherished two-hour Siesta in the soothing sleeping area. And when the heat of the day cools down, you can slip into the lovely garden. Here you will find plenty of shaded seating areas, a comfortable patio bordered by grassy lawn, and a fishpond where you can observe the many fish.
There is room for everyone! At the right side of the courtyard, two wonderful condo units offer you 3 spacious bedrooms on two levels! The two units turn into one thanks to a connecting door at the stairwell, so you could easily share the laughter with the people in the other bedroom. Yet when the door is closed each can enjoy the privacy of their own room and welcome the much desired peace and quiet.
On the lower level, there are two lovely bedrooms, a private bathroom and an elegant living room. However, it is the large fully equipped kitchen and the stylish dining area that makes this condo truly fit for anyone who appreciates comfort, good food and good company.
On the upper level you will find 2 more airy bedrooms with king-size and queen-size beds, respectively, and a shared but spacious bathroom. Along with a dining corner, a compact kitchen, and an open living room, there is also a spacious terrace with a palapa roof. Fresh ocean breeze coming from Yal Ku Lagoon, bird’s singing and lush palm trees make this terrace a perfect spot for lazy afternoons or activity-filled morning.
Opt for the one condo unit on the upper level of Casa Gatos! A flight of stairs leads you to your cozy apartment that comes with a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, a roomy space for lounging, and two lovely bedrooms. There’s also a private bathroom in each of the bedrooms, and appealing beds for that restful nights’ sleep you want.
Right outside the kitchen, there’s a terrace which offers a magnificent view of the garden courtyard. You can have your breakfast there, and for dinner check out the great Que Onda Restaurant! It is right next door to Casa Gatos!
The bottom line is – Casa Gatos is the perfect place to spend your vacation in and still stay within your budget. So if you are in the middle of planning your vacation, make sure to add Casa Gatos to your inquiry to choose the condo and vacation dates that suit you best!
All condos have AC, bathroom, terrace/patio.

We had such a great time at Casa Gatos. It is very nice, the price can't be beat, and Dan and David are the best! They were very friendly and helpful. The garden is absolutely beautiful and I love the bathroom in #102. It is very close to Yal Ku lagoon and Half Moon Bay. We rented bikes and they are the perfect way to get around and avoid having to walk downtown in the heat. I highly recommend it! We will definitely be back!

We go down to Akumal twice a year for the cave diving that is available in the area. This was our 5th stay at Casa Gatos and we will keep going back. The accomodations are the best we've found in the Akumal area. A bargain and a great time.

I spent a lot of time reading reviews online to find a special place to stay close to the water and removed from lots of night life. I found the most perfect place at Casa Gatos in Akumal Mexico!
Dan and Dave are such gracious hosts and I can promise you my next visit to the Yucatan will bring me right to the door of Casa Gatos. Everything is so beautiful and delightfully decorated. I found the apartment to be so spacious and comfortable and inviting… after a long day of snorkeling it was so nice to come home! My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! We will most certainly return because Casa Gatos has all that one would need (and then some) to have a fabulous, relaxing vacation!
Snorkeling in the lagoon was a major treat, tons of fish and even two large rays welcomed us along the swim out to the open ocean. The fact that we could walk around the corner from Casa Gatos to the lagoon and the beach made it that much sweeter! Snorkeling in Akumal Bay was equally fantastic as we counted 9 sea turtles along our route. To end the day on the roof top of Casa Gatos with a glass of wine and a fantastic view just topped it off. Your gated courtyard was a place I would have been content to just sit in for much of our stay if I only had the time and the sound of the fountain was a constant delight. Thank you for serving the coffee and the treats in the morning… a wonderful added touch!. I found the space very well equipped with the essentials and it is extremely clean. I loved that the temperature at night (Late November) was so perfect that we never needed the air conditioning. I adore the feel of Akumal, so quaint, friendly and breathtakingly beautiful. Although I am tempted to keep it a secret… I would recommend this lovely hide away to anyone!!!

Casa Gatos is a lively, homey and exotic accomodation experience. The hosts accomodate every need, are full of information and have a great attachment to the preservation of the Akumal area and its natural elements. The day we arrived we felt like we could easily stay for a month, unfortunately we had made other plans, but we will go back. It is close to some snorkel beaches, and the bike rentals are nearby and the only transport you need for the town and pueblo. Caso Gatos is an artful life, and I am so glad I was able to participate.

Casa Gatos is hands down the best value in the Akumal area! Dave the owner has created a very special gem. My wife and I stayed at Casa Gatos for three wonderful nights in early December. The owner Dave went out of his way to make us feel at home! But my home is not nearly as beautiful as Casa Gatos. Our room was unbelievably large and equipped with anything you needed. The decor was amazing. Just minutes to Akumal,this is the purrfect place! Truly the nicest accommodations we have encountered in 15 years+ traveling in Mexico. Thanks again Dave!

The layout is terrific and the grounds are meticulously maintained. The gated entrance opens to a cozy courtyard that is filled with fanciful curiosities and rich texture of native plants. Dan and Dave are the friendly owners who made sure we were well accomodated. The only regret was having to leave.

Our stay at Casa Gatos exceeded our expectations. The gardens and courtyard are beautifully maintained, so it's like walking into your own little tranquil paradise every time you come "home". Although the property was not right on the beach, it was a nice and quiet escape... great for afternoon siesta. The condo was well equipped with everything we needed prepare our meals. Casa Gatos is located near the lagoon, so after being on the beach, it's nice to take a refreshing dip.

OUR GENEROUS AND FRIENDLY HOSTS, AND STAFF WERE AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME. WE WERE GREETED ON ARRIVAL, MADE TO FEEL AT HOME, AND WELCOME THE ENTIRE WEEK. WE ALL FEEL THAT OUR HOSTS ARE NOW OUR FREINDS IN AKUMAL
WE WILL LOOK FORWARD TO VISITING AGAIN SOON.
WE HEARTILY RECOMMEND CASA GATOS TO ALL. IT IS ESPECIALLY GREAT FOR FAMILY GATHERINGS.
THE RELAXED PRIVATE ATMOSPHERE SUPPLIMENTS THE MANY ACTIVE OPTIONS JUST OUTSIDE THE ENCLOSURE. THE ROOF TOP VIEWS ARE REALLY SPECIAL AT SUNSET.
ONE OF THE MOST RELAXED, (AND ACTIVE AT THE SAME TIME) VACATION IN MY EXPERIENCE.

Our stay at Casa Gatos was fantastic! The weather was perfect all week--sunny and 80 degrees. Snorkeling at nearby Akumal Bay and Half Moon Bay was excellent--perfect water clarity, saw 5 sea turtles, squid, and so many tropical colored fish. Owners Dave and Dan go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome, and frequently serve fabulous breakfasts in their beautiful gardens. We highly recommend Casa Gatos as a place to stay in Akumal. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable and the decorating is fantastic!

The owners were present during our stay and they made my daughter and i feel as thought we had arrived at a retreat as a friend every day. Lovely place, beautiful location and access to everything in just a few steps.

Five friends and I rented the entire compound for a week. Casa Gatos is located in a quiet neighborhood in the jungle and each day when we were finished with our Riviera Maya excitement we had a luxurious jungle hideaway to return home to. The owners are warm, knowledgeable and welcoming and the condos are clean and well maintained. We spent a good deal of time around the table in the garden, which is completely grown from seeds by one of the owners. I would recommend this spot for anyone who really wants to feel like they are surrounded by entirety of Akumal and who doesn't mind a short stroll to the lagoon or beach. There is interesting wildlife along the way and the neighbors are friendly.
See the review for #100--we rented the entire place.
