What are you doing for the holidays?

When it comes to family vacation planning, it’s never too early to ask. Besides, there are lots of vacation specials to help put paradise within budget.

We have highlighted five, great, family-friendly vacation rentals for your next holiday. They are among the best because of their location, kid-friendly amenities, spaciousness, large pool, or proximity to the beach.

Why spend your time rushing in the mall, squeezing in a parking space, and standing in line when you can be on the beach with a book, splashing in the pool with the kids, or just taking in the view?

Margarita Villa

Margarita Villa is an upscale, kid-friendly beachfront vacation rental with a heated pool is located right on the white sands of Soliman Bay, overlooking the Caribbean.

This spacious six-bedroom villa can comfortably accommodate up to 12 adults and six children. Equipped with a large zero-entry pool, four double kayaks, and beach hammocks, there are plenty of opportunities to relax and take in the gorgeous ocean views.

Specific kid-friendly amenities include three cribs/playpens and one stroller for babies/toddlers, three baby gates for doorways, highchair, three bed rails, and safety netting on the deck railing.

Besides spending relaxing days at the beach, snorkeling, and kayaking, Soliman Bay offers plenty of other activities that are worth exploring. Margarita Villa is very convenient for Riviera Maya’s famous Tulum Ruins (10 minutes south), Akumal’s city center (15 minutes north) and Playa del Carmen’s restaurants (35 minutes).

Casa Salvaje

Casa Salvaje is an expansive two-story villa with three additional casitas (guesthouses) in Aventuras Akumal and one of our most popular family vacation rentals. It can comfortably accommodate up to 17 guests.

The stylish beachfront pool and the white pool deck with the Caribbean as a backsplash have been designed as an ideal place for swimming and relaxation. If you are looking forward to soaking up the sun, then head towards the sandy stretch in front of the house and pick one of the lounges that offer the best view of Aventuras Akumal Bay.

Or you can learn why Riviera Maya is known around the world for its scuba diving and snorkeling spots. You don’t have to go far to explore the majestic beauty of the coral reef and exotic flora and fauna. Some of the best snorkeling stops are right outside your door.

Spending your vacation at the graceful white Casa Salvaje means leaving work stress, household duties, frustrating traffic jams behind and embracing peace, tranquility and the care-free lifestyle of a Mayan paradise.

Villa Palmeras

Villas Palmeras is a charming vacation rental that accommodates up to 10 people in the main house and garden casita (guesthouse) on Soliman Bay.

With three air-conditioned bedrooms and an air-conditioned living room, this beach villa is comfortable any time of year.  There is a fourth bedroom in a private guest house when you need a little more space.

The beachside patio is fully furnished, shady, and an outdoor grilling area is among the coconut palms for cookouts. Inside, the house’s main living space has an L shaped couch, a large coffee table surrounded by several chairs. Across from the living room is a dining area that seats six. Just behind it is a raised breakfast counter that separates the dining room from the fully equipped kitchen.

On the second level are two bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with two queens. Both have a private bathroom and access to a furnished upper-level terrace that looks toward the beach.

The swimming pool is on the beach side of the house and has a shaded patio with dining table and chairs, and a wooden deck with chaise lounges and other furnishings. A little closer to the beach is a built-in grill.

Cherish your family while making new memories at Villa Palmeras. Relax or walk out on the sand, slap on some sunscreen, tan a bit, and do a little snorkeling and kayaking.

Casa Cavu

The great advantage of spending your vacation at Riviera Maya and in a beach house like Casa Cavu. You can let down your hair, take your shoes off and walk around barefoot. Because Casa Cavu has been designed around two main concepts – relaxation and Caribbean natural beauty, two must have ingredients for your vacation.

Casa Cavu comfortably accommodates up to eight guests. An elegant swimming pool, an expansive terrace complete with cozy hammocks swinging in the breeze, a shady beach pavilion perfect for dining ‘al fresco’ and a vast stretch of white powder beach – allow you to experience the ultimate pleasures of spending your time outdoors.

For more dramatic views of the Tankah Bay, there is the rooftop observatory that crowns this charming beach house. If you want to take amazing pictures of the Caribbean or share a photo of family members relaxing by the pool or taking kayaks for a ride, this is the place to be!

Not only does Tankah Bay have good snorkeling and excellent kayaking within the shelter of the reef, but it also has several great restaurants and a dive shop all within walking distance of Casa Cavu.  The city of Tulum and Akumal are only a 15-minute drive away with even more sightseeing, restaurants, and of course the famous Tulum ruins.

Las Casitas Akumal

How often do you catch yourself daydreaming about taking your family on an extended vacation somewhere away from civilization?  To turn off your cell phone, walk on the beach, swim, snorkel and leave all your stress behind?

The great news is this dream can come true very soon. Tell everyone to pack and book one of the Las Casitas condos.

Situated in one of the most sought after location on the Akumal Bay, Mexico, the Las Casitas condominiums provide their guests with two different lodging choices – an “original” casita (accommodates up to 5 people) and a “larger” casita (for a maximum of 6 people).

Both the regular and larger casitas offer their guests two big airy bedrooms with private bathrooms, a fully-equipped and furnished kitchen, a charming living and dining room area with large sliding glass doors and that offer a fantastic view of Akumal Bay.

But without a doubt, one of the most beloved ‘features’ of Las Casitas is a private courtyard that comes with each unit. Situated in between the exterior seaside patio and the beach it adds a tropical flair to the house. And comfortable outdoor furniture and the shade of the palapa and palm trees make it a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or relax with a good book.
