Overview

Akumal Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

We fell in love with Akumal, known as the place of the turtles, and so will you. Away from the hustle and bustle of Cancun, you can walk 40 steps to the turquoise Caribbean to our private beach and snorkel with sea turtles in warm Half Moon Bay. Renowned Yal Ku Lagoon, which is sometimes called an outdoor aquarium, is within walking distance. PADI certified dive shops are located on both Half Moon and Akumal Bay. We even have a shaded 'cenote' pool overlooking the beach for those really hot days.

Our spacious, thoughtfully appointed 1600 square foot condo is located in a peaceful lush garden setting. Each bedroom features a king size bed and the second bedroom has an additional twin, making us an ideal place for your family or to share with another couple. The condo offers daily maid service (including the dishes!), soaps, linens and towels along with hair dryers. Bottled water is provided in our fully equipped kitchen. The dining area seats six, plus three breakfast bar seats. WiFi and cable are available.

Akumal has many fine restaurants. The ambiance is warm and very casual everywhere. You can walk the beach to a few of the restaurants and curl your toes in the sand as you sip your margarita and enjoy the wonderful seafood or steak. American and continental cuisines are featured along with Mexican fare.

Akumal is centrally located for many nearby excursions. The Mayan ruins at Tulum, the only archeological site right on the Caribbean Sea is 15 miles away. Coba, another Mayan site is just west of Tulum. You can swim with the dolphins in nearby Puerto Aventuras, which also offers a nine hole golf course, or travel a little farther up the road to Xcaret. Playacar lies just to the north of Xcaret and features a fine 18 hole golf course. Playa del Carmen offers the vibrancy of city life with its shopping along Fifth Avenue and you can take the ferry over to Cozumel from there. A fine new course, Bahia Principe, lies minutes south of Akumal near Chemuyl. There are too many other fun activities to do in the area to list here.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a rental that you should consider. From the beginning the owner was responsive to all inquiries. The staff in the condo were responsive to any requests for assistance. The apartment was clean and well cared for. It was very comfortable with all of the accessories one might need. It is best for those who have a car or if you don't mind walking because the condo is about 2 km from the main road. Located right on Half Moon bay, good snorkeling

is a few steps from the front door and YA KUL inlet snorkeling park

is just a 10 minute walk away.

A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

La iguana 14 is an amazing condo! Deb, the owner, was organized and quick to respond to all questions. She has information on the surrounding area and all of the activities available. However, some of the prices have increased quite a bit from the info sheet she gave us. The house is well equipped with everything from kitchen appliances to books to movies and snorkel gear. The property staff were excellent and friendly. The grounds are well maintained and the iguanas stand guard! Snorkeling off the beach is great but water shoes are a must due to a rocky entrance and watch out for sea urchins! The main Akumal beach, the next bay over, is very crowded during the day so the earlier the better. We saw rays and turtles and barracuda. La buena vida restaurant is a quick 10 min walk and has a great happy hour and food with amazing atmosphere! It is easy to get to the Coba and Tulum ruins and the larger supermarkets are about 20 min away by car. Would definitely return and recommend this condo! Thanks for an awesome holiday!!

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I should have written a review a year ago! We stayed in La Iguana 14 last year and are returning for two months soon. I like this property for a number of reasons: 1. It has easy access to great snorkeling. 2. It has a nice ocean front for relaxing, but the property is not directly ocean front. I like that because we didn't have people constantly in front of our condo, yet we were just a few steps from the ocean. 3. I like having a pool and a dipping pool. 4. The condo is spacious. 5. It is well equipped; hair dryer, kitchen supplies, safe, hammock, etc. 6. Deb and Mike let us bring our little poodle. 7. It has off the street parking. 8. The price is reasonable. 9. The staff in Akumal were great. 10. Deb and Mike are very easy to get in contact with and DO take care of any concerns right away! Just a word to new comers to Akumal - If you are a staying longer than a week, rent a car. It's worth it. There are many things to do in the area.... Tulum for the beach, ruins, shopping, dining; Puerto Adventuras is a fun day; Playa del Carmen for a day.... shopping, beach, great massages on the beach and they are cheap!; Akumal beach is great for seeing turtles (but the parking can be a problem). There are other ruins to visit for a nice day trip. Lots of ceynotes. My favorite places to eat are Leo's Pizza in Chemuyl, Turtle Bay Cafe for a good hamburger and for breakfast, and Pesacador's has great grouper and seafood. Get your groceries in Tulum or Puerto Adventuras at the Chedraui (not sure I spelled it correctly). Don't be afraid to shop and eat in the pueblos.... Akumal Pueblo, Adventuras Pueblo, Chemuyl Pureblo, etc. The prices are cheaper and the food is great and the people are nice. Go over to Akumal Pueblo and watch the soccer games!

Spacious, stylish and very clean

  • 5 of 5

My family (total of 5) stayed in La Iguana 14 for thanksgiving vacation. We had everything we needed. The condo is right on the beach, very clean, very spacious, decorated with great style. We had a great time. There is random snorkeling equipment that we borrowed which was very handy since not all of us had gear. Overall 5 stars! We will be back. Deb, the owner was great too, very easy to communicate, prompt with responses, gave some great tips.

Thank you!

WHAT AN OASIS!

  • 5 of 5

What an unbelievable find for a vacation home! I wanted to go to this area and just started looking and I found Deb and Mike Jones. What wonderful people and the communication with them before my trip was awesome. They made great suggestions for trips, restaurants, things to do, driving, etc. They made my trip so easy to set up and enjoy. I walked every morning right out the door down to the beach to watch the sunrise and met some great people - walked with Paul and Freddie his golden retriever every morning, greeted the coatis and raccoons and the birds were amazing. Everything is so close and within walking distance if you don't want to use a car. The condo is at the very far end of Half Moon Bay and you don't have to dodge the tourists mowing you down on the road because it is so quiet. I rented a car and it made it easier to go to Akumal Bay but you do have to pay for parking. I met so many great people in the condo complex and made some friends for life. The condo was spacious, comfortable and had every amentity you could possibly want. I hung my clothes out on the chairs in front and they were dry every morning! Cable TV was nice to have so that you could at least see what was happening in the world. The pools - what can I say about the pools! It was so hot last week and I was in them a lot! Ya Kul Lagoon is only 1/2 block away along with several restaurants. You absolutey can't go wrong renting this condo!

Divine days in Akumal

  • 5 of 5

On January 27th there were two facts which made us sad: Leaving wonderful Mexico and leaving DEB´s condo. The nicely adapted rooms and the cleanliness of the whole house was perfect. Also the surrounding: nice neighbours, many interesting things to do. The sea, just in front of he condo was an adventure every day. Colorful fish and a huge manta near the reef were a perfect pasttime. 5 minutes walk is a cool lagoon, named Yal ku, with plenty of exotic fish. After a twenty minute walk to Akumal playa awaited us another highlight. There are always huge turtles, it is a great pleasure to watch them. And now an advise to all the readers: Don’t miss to swimm at least in two or three cenotes in the surrounding area. One of our favourites is the underground cenote in Ak tun chen.

After all those sport activities we were hungry. We would recommend La Cueva del Pescador, just opposite the dive shop. The staff is always friendly and we loved the menus and the typical atmosphere. An other restaurant we visited often was La Buena Vida, a really nice place in the late afternoon and in the evening. Food and drinks are perfect and it’s also romantic at the bar, when all the lanterns are switched on. Driving in the direction of Tulum, about 12 km after Akumal, is another restaurant, called Oscar & Lalo. Don’t miss it. We love it since years. It’s surrounded by the jungle – a superb place to sit and have a great meal.

Coming home after exciting days to Debs condo was always a pleasure. Everything was so perfect. Hector, the manager of all the condos cares for safety and resolves every problem.

There is just one thing left to say: Deb, thank you for letting us your condo. We had really a great time there. And to all the Mexicans we would like to say: It’s a pleasure to have been in that beautiful country for eight times.
