Meet Our Staff at Akumal Villas


Rhett, a native of Vail Colorado, came to the Yucatan 20 years ago on Scholarship to study Mayan Archaeology in Izamal Yucatan. His first encounter with Akumal came on a break from his studies to go fly fishing. After college Rhett went to work in Japan for 10 years where he met his beautiful wife Kazue. Together they have a very cute daughter Beniko! After Japan, Rhett spent several years in Vail working in the fly fishing guide business. Six years ago Rhett and Kazue decided to move down to Akumal to start a property management company and be closer to his mother Isabel Schober. Now as the new owner of Akumal Villas, Rhett is even more committed to serving the owners, guests and community with care and diligence.


Hi, my name is Eduardo and everybody calls me Eddie. I am originally from Monterrey, N.L. in northern Mexico. I have been living in the Riviera Maya since 2005. I think life is too short and that is why I chose this marvelous place to share my life with my family. I have always liked to interact with foreign people and I have found that opportunity here. Please believe me if I say it is a great pleasure to meet and serve you because service is my vocation! I hope to meet you soon.


Hola, my name is Maria and I am from Monterrey. I have lived in the Riviera Maya between Cancun and Tulum since 1989. I have lived in Akumal, Tulum and Puerto Aventuras. I am a proud member of Akumal Villas staff as I have known the team for so many years and I feel great working with them. I am here to help you find the perfect place for your vacation, so feel free to contact me.


My name is Gustavo, I am proudly a Mexican and I was born in Jalisco, the land of the Mariachi and Tequila. My birth sign is Leo and my favorite sports are swimming and riding my bike. My hobby is ecology, but I think it is not only a hobby, it is an obligation. Everyone should take care of Mother Nature. I am a very lucky man. God gave me many treasures -- my wife Ena and my three children; Ailee, Emmanuel and baby, Regina. Also, my parents, five brothers and three sisters. I am healthy, I have an awesome job, and I live in paradise! What else could I ask for? Maybe to win the lottery?


Hi I'm Martina, originally from Ireland. I have travelled and worked in many different places in the world including Australia, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. When I arrived on the Mayan Riviera with my husband, we both know we found the place that we wanted to stay. In my spare time I can be found with friends or on the beach enjoying life. I love working at Akumal Villas and feel very fortunate to work with such a great team in paradise! As part of the vacation reservation team, I strive to make every guest's vacation the best that it can possibly be. Please contact me so we can start planning your vacation to this beautiful part of the world.
