Casa Maleno

Central Akumal, Akumal, Mexico


  • A Unique Homestay with a Rich Local Mayan History

    Colorful history, mystical Mayan culture and the paradise-like nature of the Caribbean make Riviera Maya one of the most desired and popular vacation spots on many travelers’ lists.

    Unlike many other properties in Riviera Maya, Casa Maleno has it all…

    Not only is it located on the site where some of Akumal’s first residents used to live, but it has also been named after the famous local shaman and storyteller, Maleno, known for his big heart and colorful personality.

    His importance in the history of the Riviera Maya lives on today and is evident by the monument placed in his honor in the quiet garden of Casa Maleno.

    Amazingly enough, this history-rich vacation villa offers many high-end features that you would not expect to find at such budget-friendly rates.

    Comfortable layout in a one-level vacation rental

    Casa Maleno is a one-level property built just 3 minute walk away from Akumal Bay, with its great snorkeling spots and fun local bars and restaurants.

    The fact that everything is conveniently located on one level means that there will be no walking up and down tedious flights of stairs while you are staying here.

    Classy design in the heart of the Riviera Maya

    The spacious living room is designed in a contemporary Mexican flavor with its rich hues of wood and deep wine and caramel-colored fabrics.

    Interesting architectural solutions such as the brick-dome over the kitchen island or the original tree trunk that seems to be growing right into the ceiling, adds unique charm to the already spacious kitchen.

    While a light and airy dining area, overlooking the terrace and manicured gardens makes food taste even better.

    And for morning coffee or evening margaritas check out the pretty outdoor dining area, equipped with snug patio furniture and ceiling fans.

    Casa Maleno hosts 3 lovely bedrooms with spacious private bathrooms.

    The master suite features a king-size bed and reflects the colors of the tropical Caribbean. From here you can open your doors to a view of a natural stone waterfall that cascades into the sparkling water of the pool.

    Aside from the master suite, Casa Maleno has two guest bedrooms, both of which feature a queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom.

    Colorful outdoors in the tropical gardens

    Expansive door sliders, located both in the living room and dining area, open up the house to the secluded verandah, originally-shaped pool and soft breezes which are filled with hints of the perfume from tropical flowers and the freshness of the ocean.

    Just a short walk away from Casa Maleno you will find the white beaches of Akumal Bay and the amazing marine fauna protected from the waves of the ocean by a beautiful coral reef.

    Priced just right for your Riviera Maya vacation

    It is easy to see why the owners of Casa Maleno chose this part of the Caribbean to build their second home. The place is away from the loud tourist spots and yet, it possesses the unique and rich history and culture that a lot of travelers seek for in the Riviera Maya.

    And all this for super-convenient rates that will not drain your vacation budget and will make your co-workers and friends beg you to share this secluded getaway with them, so that they, too, can book Casa Maleno for their next vacation!
