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.

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.

Large beautiful condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I stayed at this condo in April. It is located on Half Moon Bay near the Yal-ku Lagoon, about 1.75 mile walk into the heart of Akumal Bay. There is free parking available at this condo for rental cars or golf carts.

The staff here is delightful. Good people, very friendly. They will take care of whatever you need. Slyvia cleaned & replenished towels when we asked her to and gave us our privacy when we asked for it. And Hector (at the front office) is the best!

The condo is large, airy and filled with light. The furnishings are comfortable and clean. The TV is satellite and has loads of Canadian/American channels. The beds are also comfortable and we slept well. The showers are hot, water pressure is great and the AC is cold so you can sleep well. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, dishes and pots & pans. We cooked most all of our meals here. We were very comfortable staying here.

The condo has a nice front porch where we ate breakfast and sat outside in the evenings. The grounds are very lush and well-kept. The neighbors were friendly, inviting us over for a BBQ and cocktails.

There are two pools on the grounds, one in the courtyard area and one facing the beach (this pool being partly shaded). The beach was about 30 yards from our front door. There is some good snorkeling right out front of the beach area and the water is shallow for quite a way out. We spent time on the beach, which was also well-tended to by the staff, and in the courtyard pool. I absolutely loved the pool with its built in benches and nearby palm trees for a hint of shade. The folks staying in the neighboring condos were all very friendly and we made lots of new friends while at the pool every afternoon.

Akumal is a lovely small beach town. There are some good restaurants, a couple of fun bars and so many nice people (tourists and locals). We spent a few hours at La Buena Vida, La Cueva del Pescador, Turtle Bay Cafe, enjoying the food, the drinks and the views. Some days we ate off the local lunch truck that drives through town feeding the staff and other workers in the area. The sidewalks roll up early here which is a blessing.

As far as renting the condo, the owners, Deb & Mike, were quick to repsond to my requests, questions, etc. I found them extremely personable and easy to deal with. They are both very knowledgeable about this area of Mexico. I plan on staying at the condo again on future trips to Akumal.

I highly

Awasome vacations @ La Iguana 14 , AKUMAL

  • 5 of 5
We wish had more time to spend here in this gorgeous condo and little town, people here is so friendly and have great hospitality, Condo is so spacious and always kept clean by great Andrea, we are a family of 5 (2 teenagers and 1 little girl) and we felt so comfortable here. Alvaro and Hector are great hosts (actually first night I had some beers @ swimming pool with them and some neighborns ! )

The condo is located pretty close (walking distance) to the YalKum lagoon (excellent for calm snorkel) as well as in front of Half moon Bay (look for turtle nests !! we were so lucky and witness of hundreads of little turtles coming out of around 7-8 PM !!! Also there are Coatis coming out of the forest into the streets around 7 pm. Akumal has good restaurant but you also have to try some around the area, La Cueva del Pescador is a must at Akumal (seafood and lobster), Buena Vida is so famous but really the food is nothing extraordinary, try it for happy hour (5-7 pm) and take some pics there ! The Condo is well equipated, therefore we cooked a lot (breakfast and dinner, you save some $$$), make sure you stop by Soriana or Chedraui right on the highway, get all groceries since corner stores @ Akumal are kind of expensive. Out of 9 days we tried breakfast @ Turtle bay, yummie !!! make sure you ask for Huevos Mayas and Chilaquiles con Pollo.
For a romantic and delicious dinner, go to Puerto Aventuras (15 minutes north of Akumal), right on the highway there is a small place , TU PARADOR, you don't even need to take a look on the menu, Guillermo will walk you through some excellent suggestions ! starters, Main dish, capuccino, lemon pie, ..everything is so deliciuos ! by far our best Restaurant during this vacations !!!
Jim & Chuck (condo owners) are great guys to talk and deal with ! they accept Pay Pal so the reservation process was so simple for me , for sure we will be back pretty soon !!!! thanks Jim and Chuck for sharing your Paradise with us !!!!
