This beautiful beachfront vacation home is situated in Akumal, sixty miles to the south of Cancun Airport. Lying on an impressive rocky coast, and just a three-minute stroll from the fabulous beach of Akumal Bay this really is a perfect location. It has four thousand square feet of living space, four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. There are many amenities in Akumal Bay, such as restaurants, a couple of small grocery stores, dive shops, an Internet café, a bureau de change, attractive boutiques and a kid’s club. As you approach the villa along the driveway with private parking you will be struck by the spectacular colors of the bougainvilleas which grow up the side of the house next to the swimming pool.  The beauty of these flowers enhances the charm of the large twenty-one square foot pool. In the area around the pool, there is more than enough seating for the entire family, as well as a table and hammock beneath a palapa. There are also speakers outside so that you can relax to your favorite tunes.

Not far from the pool you have an outside grill and fryer, just in case you are in the mood for barbequing.  If you would rather relax and forget about cooking for a while, you can always arrange to have delicious dishes prepared for you by our caretaker, who is also a wonderful cook. He is available to make breakfast and dinner, assisted in serving meals by his adorable wife. Leaving the pool you enter into the joined living and dining spaces which enjoy vistas of the Caribbean. From here you can step through the French doors straight onto the beach and into the sea breezes.  There you will find a spacious pergola, where you can sway in hammocks and listen to the sea. Back indoors there is a large, totally equipped kitchen which even has a dishwasher, a breakfast bar with stools, Internet, fax, and printer. In the large pantry, there is a sizeable safe for your valuables and there is a half bathroom between the kitchen and the French doors.  Next to the kitchen is a comfortable entertainment area with air-conditioning, sea views, satellite TV, DVD player, stereo, movies, and CDs.

The guest bedroom downstairs has a king-size bed, wonderful views of the ocean, a private patio and its own bathroom with shower. Upstairs there are three bedrooms. One is a children’s room with two double beds, a single bed, a private bathroom with a large shower, children’s decorations and skylights. The other two bedrooms upstairs are accessed from the pretty terrace that enjoys views of the pool and the jungle. It is a wonderful place to relax in the comfortable chairs or built-in sofa while marveling at the gorgeous sunsets above the lush jungle. The master bedroom is large and has an exquisite brick-domed ceiling, a king bed, a sofa, an expansive balcony with hammocks and lovely ocean views, surround sound and an enormous bathroom with shower.

The other bedroom also has a king bed, a spacious balcony with gorgeous sea views and its own bathroom with shower and skylights. Every bedroom is large, air-conditioned, has ceiling fans and its own balcony with fabulous ocean views. As if all this were not enough, there is also an observatory on the rooftop with comfortable seating. It is the ideal spot to take in the fabulous sunrises over the shining aquamarine sea. The views are unbeatable. The panoramic vista takes in the ocean on one side, Akumal Bay on another, Half Moon Bay on another and finally the beautiful lush jungle to the west. This enchanting beachfront vacation villa captures all the best from the Riviera Maya and the Caribbean, and is sure to make your vacation in paradise unforgettable!

    Villa Sea Gate
    (5 of 5)
    Posted on 23 March 2019
    This was our second stay at Sea Gate. Gregorio and Margarita cooked us a wonderful meal. They took great care of us all week. The house itself is very comfortable. The outdoor space is our favorite part of Sea Gate. The hammocks on the ocean front are the perfect spot for an afternoon nap with the breeze and the white noise of the waves. The pool in the back is great for soaking up the sun, but always has a shady spot if you need it. It's the space to read a book, cool off in the water or gather for afternoon drinks before heading out for dinner. It's a quick walk into town and a short walk to La Buena Vida. We rented bicycles to make the trek to the Yal-ku lagoon end easier. Akumal is welcoming and all of the restaurants we went to had great service and wonderful food. The Akumal Dive Shop provided us with great memories too. It's a definite do again!

    This was our first stay at Villa Seagate and our 3rd time working with Akumal Villas. Thelocation of Villa Seagate is perfect for renting bikes, accessing Yal Ku lagoon, La Buena Vida, LolHa and the Pueblo of Akumal. The villa sits on a rocky outcropping, but it was fun to explore. We had our very own "blow hole" in our back yard. It was a very short walk to the main Akumal Bay. We never really missed the beach. I only wish the pool was on the ocean side, but I do understand that the incoming breeze would make it unusable in the cooler months. As the pools are not heated, they are a little chilly during January-February. But, we were still able to use it after the day heated up over 80 degrees. The inside of the villa was adequately furnished. The master suite has an amazing view of the ocean and the sunrise. The breeze was great and we never turned on the AC once in the master suite. I do love the layout that lends to extreme privacy for each guest. The rooftop view was enjoyed most evenings. We hired Chef Emilio Talancon and his sous chef Dedier through Akumal Villas, and this was a first for us also. But, it will not be the last! We thoroughly enjoyed the difference between a chef and just a cook. He offered so much diversity, catering to the special food needs of our guests. He was always enjoyable, efficient, timely, and professional. The food was phenomenal, and we were given free reign to ask for whatever we wanted. He made every effort to deliver, and did he ever! We did not see much of Gregorio and Margarita, the housekeepers. They introduced themselves the first day, and quietly cleaned while we were out most days. For the price,this villa a great deal. I highly recommend you contact Maria at Akumal Villas. She doesn't stop helping after you book. She answered my every question and multiple emails. She is a gem! Thanks again Akumal Villas for making this a memorable trip!

    Sea Gate provided the perfect family vacation spot for our extended family. Two boys, two sets of grandparents. The place is set on a lovely location and Gregorio and Margarita are the perfect caretakers. The dinners they made us were fantastic. The place was big enough so everyone had their space, and the short walk to the public beach was perfect. Would highly recommend for a family vacation spot.

    Beautiful house, great location, wonderful service

    Only on our third day, but what a great choice. The house is beautiful with a very large master bedroom with bath and three smaller bedrooms. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped. Right on the beach with a nice pergola on the edge of the sand. The service, provided by Gregorio, Margarita, and family is fantastic. All of our questions are answered; all of our needs met. Five minute drive to all you really need ( go ahead and walk, really) and less than 30 minutes to Playa del Carmen and Tulum, if you need variety. A truly great house experience.

    Villa Sea Gate has a lovely view and location, but there are issues...
    (4 of 5)
    Posted on 22 March 2018
    My spouse & I stayed at Vila Sea Gate with my 2 teen daughters and my mother. We rented thru Tropical Island Connections and they were very friendly, helpful and informative during the booking process. The location of Villa Sea Gate is really ideal - within walking distance to anything you need in Akumal. The Villa has a night time security guard who guards Sea Gate and a neighboring villa - during our time the guard was Agostino and he was very friendly and efficient. There was also a guarded/gated entry into North Akumal where the villa is located at nighttime. Casa Sea Gate is very lovely at first sight - the views of the ocean are beautiful and the home is situated for most rooms to have a view and ocean breeze. The pool is well kept and pretty - it is on the beach road side, not facing the ocean. There are lots of beautiful flowers surrounding the pool, as well as iguana, geckos and talkative birds. We even saw a Coati on the beach road and in the front yard. The town is very cute with quaint little shops and good restaurants and everyone is friendly. Akumal beach is known for it's turtles and we saw plenty while snorkeling, however not much coral or other sea life to be seen. The beach is pretty, but very crowded with tour groups streaming in constantly to see the turtles. Snorkeling in the early morning or late afternoon was the ideal time to avoid the crowds. Now for the disappointing aspects. Beyond our ocean front patio and yard on the rocky beach there was an extreme amount of trash and what looked like dumped recycling. It would literally take days or weeks for a group of people to clean it up. I mentioned this to the house manager and he indicated that it would be taken care of, but we never witnessed any attempts. So sad that in such a beautiful area the trash is not taken care of and the property disrespected. The caretakers - Gregoria and Margarita live in a casita at the driveway entrance. The are very sweet, but seem to do minimal upkeep of the home. On a 10 scale, the house was at a 3 to 4 level of cleanliness. My mother's mattress had a urine smell. There were cobwebs and dust in a lot of areas and a major ant problem in the ktichen and bathrooms. The AC unit in my daughter's bedroom wasn't working and it was fixed promptly but would have been nice for these things to be checked before our arrival. Most disconcerting of all, however was the caretaker's 2 sons (I believe) and grandson would be on the property grounds quite frequently. The sons would have visitors parked at the entrance while chatting and listening to music. On one occasion they were utilizing the ocean side patio steps and crossing our back yard for a few hours which was very disrespectful to our privacy. In fact, we couldn't use our master bath shower while they were there because it looked out towards the ocean and had no window covering. We ended up making one of our own out of towels. All in all, this is a nice home in a beautiful location, but not at all up to par in many areas and by no means a luxury rental.
