Description

Oceanfront Home Featured in Architectural Digest

If you long for the warmth of the sunlight, refreshing ocean breezes and ever-blue sky than isn’t it time to pamper yourself with a Caribbean vacation at the beautiful oceanfront Villa Nicte Ha and boost your happiness levels.

The beneficial effects of sunlight on our happiness and well-being have long been proven by scientific research. And there is no better place to soak in the sunshine than at the villa on the sun-kissed coastline of North Akumal.

Featured in Architectural Digest, Villa Nicte Ha offers plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the sun, sea breezes and stunning views of the aqua-blue waters of the Caribbean.

Outdoor Living at Its Best Overlooking the Caribbean

Balconies and sun decks extend out from all rooms, showcasing magnificent views of the North Akumal. A grand swimming pool and a spacious pool patio, furnished with soft lounge chairs, create a perfect oasis to cool off and tan.

A large beachside palapa with comfortable hammocks transforms itself into a temple of relaxation and sweet siesta naps. While a garden-side grill area with outdoor dining furniture is the perfect spot for a family cook-out and dining ‘al fresco.’

Inside Villa Nicte Ha is a sunken open concept living space that incorporates an elegant living area, a formal dining room, and a fully-equipped kitchen. The expansive windows and glass sliding doors fill the space with light and open up onto the seaside pool patio. For your entertainment, there is a satellite TV, DVD player, WiFi and an iPod docking station.

All of the 3 sun-filled air conditioned bedrooms face the ocean side of the North Akumal and come with an en-suite bathroom and private balcony. The first floor of the villa hosts a guest bedroom with two twin beds that can be made into a king bed, while the gorgeous Master Bedroom and a queen-size guest bedroom are located on the second floor of the house. To maximize the living space, both of the upstairs bedrooms feature a set of children’s bunk beds that can accommodate children up to 10 years of age.

Rooftop Deck is a Winner For Guests

Another lovely open-air feature of the house is a rooftop observation deck. In the morning it’s an ideal spot to greet the awe-inspiring tropical sunrise. At night the rooftop deck turns into an observatory, making the stars seem so close, you will probably want to touch them.

As to shopping, dining, white sand beaches and sightseeing options, the quaint center of Akumal is located just a short walk away from Villa Nicte Ha.

So you will have everything close by, yet will be able to enjoy absolute privacy and unparalleled comfort in your own beachfront vacation home, located in the prime spot of Riviera Maya. Act quickly and add Villa Nicte Ha to your inquiry!

Fantastic Vacation at NicteHa

We had a fantastic stay at Nicte Ha last week. We had two families: 4 adults and 3 teenagers, and had plenty of room to have our much needed space. The house was super comfortable and just like the description and photos show. Impeccably clean, with everything that you might need. Maria, Jose and Santos (overnight security) were wonderful; Santos is Jose's brother, and a wealth of information on the area. The location of the house is super convenient for walking around Akumal (5 minute walk to beaches, dive shop, turtles, great restaurants & souvenir shops) and a short drive in either direction to Playa del Carmen or Tulum. Nearby natural lagoon Yal-ku had fantastic snorkeling, also within walking distance. We had the best ceviche we've ever had at a local taqueria in town, across Route 307 (the non-touristy part of town), called "Chucky's". The place is always busy with locals, who take out buckets of fresh ceviche every day. Their tacos were really good as well, especially the carnitas. The guacamole at LolHa in Akumal Bay beach was also really good; also at LolHa we had the absolute best drink we had all week: fresh pineapple daiquiri. We will need to try it at home. Finally, we loved the ambiance at La Buena Vida in Half Moon bay (also within a 5 minute walk), and their whole fried fish was excellent.

The only minor suggestion we'd have is to add some blinds or dark curtain options to the upstairs bedrooms, as in the early summer days, the sun comes in through the shite curtains and wakes you up at 7am (besides making those rooms quite hot, and needing heavier use of the AC). The view is absolutely stunning, but adding some blinds or dark shades to the windows might help keep them cooler and darker in the early morning.

Thanks to the Akumal Direct Team and house maintenance staff for helping make our stay at Nicte Ha so great! We'd love to come back and would definitely recommend it!

Manager's Response

This house was amazing! We could not have enjoyed this house more!

We have rented many homes throughout our travels and this one has the best pool ever! It is beautiful and so well cared for.

The kitchen was a little small, but still functional and everything worked just fine.

We love leaving the windows/doors open and listening to the waves, especially at night. The screens did a great job of keeping moisture out of the house.

Only thing that would be helpful is to add something to the patio outside the dining room door to make that tile less slick. It gets very slippery when it is damp (which is most of the time from the ocean spray). We were careful and had no issues.

We would 100% rent this home again if we returned to the Akumal area.

Quiet, private and relaxing lol

Great house, lots of space for all your family. The little details were attended to, such as drinking water jugs in the bathrooms, kitchen well stocked including some basics. There were even some masks, snorkels and water toys. We would definitely stay there again. The layout of the house is a bit unusual but it was excellent for private spaces for all. I especially liked doing yoga daily on the crow’s nest patio. Great views of both ocean and jungle. Sweet!

We had an amazing time! Marisol was our housekeeper and she did a fantastic job. The house was clean, comfy and very welcoming. The landscape was gorgeous. On our first day there the property manager stopped by to introduce himself. One evening we left some shoes and towels outside and security brought them to our door that same night. They were very friendly and helpful.

We just returned from a wonderful, relaxing stay at Villa Nicte Ha and it was all that we expected and more! Home was well kept, and staff was great! TV had Netflix for evenings at home. Kitchen was small, but it had everything we needed - the rest of the house was laid out so that there were great, large community spaces, as well as private spaces for reading, etc. This large house is well spaced for everyone's privacy if they want it. We would definitely consider another stay here!

I've been to Akumal many times, but this was my first stay at Nicta-Ha. My family came from all over the US and we rented both Nicta-Ha and Casa Del Mar - it was a perfect arrangement. We were close, yet separate. The location is walking distance to town/beaches/restaurants so everyone could get around and we didn't need multiple cars. The villa was large and gave us together space and alone space. It was nicely furnished and well cared for. I liked the backyard with the gorgeous pool overlooking the rocky coast and Ocean - made for quiet sunbathing and interesting excursions over the rocks.

We were a family of 5, Mom and Dad and Two teenage girls and one 12 year old girl. Words do not express what a wonderful time we had at Nicte Ha. The house is absolutely incredible, clean, comfortable and very roomy. The staff could not have been better. We enjoyed the pool and the short walk to the beach. Went snorkeling with the turtles, absolutely amazing. THe people in Akumal are wonderful!!! I have already recommended the area to many folks and the home. We wish we were there right now. There are so many other things to do within short driving distances, such as Tulum area, Coba ruins, Hiddenworlds (cenote snorkeling).We did it all....we also drove to Merida and Chichen Itza. Nicte Ha is so relaxing and just a wonderful vacation spot. I must say that it was probably our best vacation ever. The O'Brien'sBob, Annette, Caitlin, Colleen and Debbie. Gracias! Gracias!

Our trip to Akumal was one of our best vacations ever and returning to this house every day was a return to paradise. Being able to sit under the palapa and enjoy the tropical breezes while watching the surf roll in was my favorite part of our week. The description is accurate and the house only improves when you get see it for yourself. Loved the artistic touches and simplicity of design. Staff was excellent, hard working, accomodating and the delicious Yucatan meal prepared by the cook was wonderful. Our bedroom air-conditioner was not functioning and the crew was in before the end of the day with a new one. The property owner, provided quick responses to any of our e-mail questions while on the trip (bringing a laptop is the best way to communicate with the wireless connection available on site). Loved snorkeling in Akumal Bay, Yal-Ku Lagoon, Muyil Adventure tour with Pastor through Sian Ka'an Community Tours, Aktun Chen Cave, Tulum Ruins, town and beach, evening shopping and dinner at Yaxche in Playa del Carmen. Enjoyed the short 8-minute walk to Akumal or Half Moon Bay. Turtle Bay Cafe in Akumal was consistently delicious for every meal. Sam's Club and the Supermarket in Playa del Carmen were great for groceries -- terrific fresh fruits and veggies at the supermarket there (watermelon and papaya were the best!). El Pueblito in Akumal has the best deal on ATM withdrawls.If you must go into Cancun, watch your driving, we were stopped by the Polizia almost immediately on arrival.

This is our second visit to Villa Nicte Ha. The property looks directly on the ocean and the panoramic views and sounds of pounding surf from the master bedroom, living room and pool deck are magnificent. The property is archtecturally unusual and was designed by someone the I.M. Pei school to maximize light and air while preserving privacy. The pool and deck are large and right on the ocean offering a unique setting. The property is kept in excellent condition through daily maid service and the efforts of the property groundskeeper. Mari, the housekeeper, made us an excellent dinner on our last night in Akumal. The property is a short drive or walk from central Akumal where we enjoyed snorkelling in the Bay (giant sea turtles, large spotted stingray, several smaller stingrays, boxfish, an enormous barracuda, some coral mounts and numerous reef fish just a few feet off the beach) as well as casual meals at Turtle Bay (highly recommended for breakfast, lunch or dinner). Just down the road is the Yal Kul lagoon. Snorkelling there feels like snorkelling in a giant aquarium full of colorful reef fish. Not far from Akumal are other interesting beaches (Tankah and Tulum), the Mayan ruins at Tulum and Coba, a number of interesting cenotes, and the fascinating Sian Kaan Biosphere Park. Highly recommended.
