PARADISE IN AKUMAL, MEXICO - BEACHFRONT 2BD/2BA CONDO

Akumal Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Enjoy a relaxing vacation on the beautiful, white sandy beach of Half Moon Bay in Akumal ('Place of the Turtle' in the Mayan language). Walk out your patio door and be directly on the beach. Wake up to the songs of tropical birds and the soothing sounds of the waves. Watch spectacular sunrises from your patio or bedroom each morning. Sip margaritas while digging your toes into the sand and watching the sea turtles pop up their heads above the beautiful turquoise water. Enjoy beautiful star-gazing at night.

Akumal is a quiet, residential beach side community located about 50 miles south of the Cancun Airport on a well-paved highway. This small town and the nearby area offer many fine restaurants and plenty of opportunities for snorkeling, diving, swimming, caving, biking, bird watching, or just plain relaxing on the beach. That is the beauty of this place - you can enjoy many activities or simply relax on a beach chair under the palms.

From our airy and spacious condo at La Bahia, you can walk barefoot to two restaurants/beach bars, relax and read under the palms or one of our palapas with 180-degree views of the sea, or snorkel in the bay, only yards from your patio, where sea turtles and tropical fish abound. The sandy beach is never crowded.

This newly updated and decorated two-bedroom/two-bath unit of 1,125 square feet includes new appliances as well as new air conditioning and ceiling fans, although tropical breezes often make these unnecessary. The condo has been renovated recently with all new tile floors, newly painted rooms, curtains, and upholstered sofa cushions. The open floor plan includes large windows on three sides of the living room and is decorated with live tropical plants and palms and Mexican artifacts. The Caribbean Sea can be viewed from all rooms.

The master bedroom (king-sized bed) and guest room (two twin-sized beds) both have ample closet space. Daily maid service is available, and beach towels are provided. Cell phone and wireless Internet service are available, so bring your cell and laptop, if you wish. There is also a satellite TV, DVD player, and iPod docking station.

The town of Akumal, a short walk from the condo, has two markets (with ATM machines and enough food items to meet your needs); seven restaurants (one with live entertainment a few nights a week during high season); three dive shops; travel office; fresh produce market twice a week; several shops and boutiques; yoga classes and fitness center; bike rentals; laundromat; and more. Two small convenience stores are located just a block or so from La Bahia.

The CEA (Centro Ecologica Akumal) provides information on sea turtles and other marine life. Akumal is ecologically protected and well known for its sea turtles and their nesting grounds. In fact, turtles nest on our beach. The season lasts from April-October, and the CEA can arrange viewing tours for an incredible experience. Try snorkeling or diving in one or more of the area's many beautiful freshwater cenotes.

Playa del Carmen (22 miles) has great shopping and restaurants, two large supermarkets, golf courses, and a bird sanctuary in nearby Playacar. You can swim with the dolphins at Puerto Aventuras (12 miles), which also has manatee and sea lion shows, restaurants, and shopping. Tulum (about 20 minutes south) has restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, and five miles of pristine beaches. Don't miss the Tulum Mayan ruins, a unique sea-cliff site; the entrance is on the left shortly before the town. Just south of Tulum is the fantastic Sian Ka'an Biosophere. Drive there yourself (check on road conditions first) or arrange a tour through our reception office.

Guestbook comments from the manager
"Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to La Bahia #2. The location on Half Moon Bay is perfect, and the views from the condo are spectacular - we could see the Caribbean Sea from every room and watch the sunrise every morning while drinking our coffee on the patio. We love the convenience of being on the ground floor and walking onto the beach directly from the patio. The water is only about 30 yards away, and we could watch the turtles pop up for air just looking out the living room sliders. Snorkeling in the bay is wonderful - sea turtles, rays, squid, parrotfish, and many other colorful, tropical fish. Akumal has a lot to offer with its great restaurants and laid-back atmosphere. We highly recommend this condo!"

First off, we wish we were still there! 10 days in the glorious Mexican sun was not enough! We thoroughly enjoyed our time. We arrived almost a day late due to flight issues and even though we got to La Bahia in the middle of the night we still received a warm welcome from the security guard on duty. I felt very safe with all the security around, which is important for me because we have a two and a four year old. The condo was perfect for us; the kitchen was equipped with all the modern amenities you would desire, the TV was put to use on the one rainy afternoon we encountered, and the bedrooms were spacious, have room to unpack, and the beds are very comfortable. Being right on the beach really made our stay relaxing! We would put the kids to bed and still enjoy the evening outside and have our morning coffee on the patio and watch the kids play in the sand, 5 feet away. The daily cleaning staff were wonderful; dishes done, beds made, garbage taken out and our water was refilled regularly. The beach itself was nice. We enjoyed going for walks around the bay but be careful with all the rocks if you want to go for a swim, water shoes are a must. The area is great, the condo is wonderful and we definitely recommend this if you are looking for a quiet, low key get away!

Cozy, great location, right on the beach

  • 5 of 5
The condo, as the other reviewer described, is right on the beach. The decoration is simple but cozy. It has pretty much all you need on vacation. There are quite a few restaurants and take out place in a few minutes walking distance. We ordered take out lunches from the Las 3 Acapulquenas cross the street, ate on the beach. WIFI connection speed is surprisingly fast, though the signal strength in the main bedroom is weak. The water is a bit rough for young kids at half moon bay. The nearby Akumal beach and the lagoon has very calm water to play with.

Paradise Perfected

  • 5 of 5
This condo is better than advertised. First off Barbara, the owners’ point of contact, was very courteous and professional. The location is simply fantastic! Condo patio to thatched hut is 6 paces, 6 more paces and you are ankle deep in the warmest, bluest, clearest water in the hemisphere! If you like being bothered on the beach by vendors and listening to jet skis then this is NOT the place for you. If however you like resting on a beach worthy of a Corona commercial then this is the place for you. Fantastic snorkeling in the bay, we observed numerous turtles and countless species of fish. Bring water shoes as the entry to the water is a little rocky. The condo was very clean and specious. Our group included my wife and I and our 19 year old son and 16 year old daughter. The area is very quiet at night. All things you would need or want are in the condo. The beds are very comfortable. Overall I would highly recommend this unit. The condo is about a 10 minute walk to Akumal beach and several restaurants and shops. Don't bother to drive to the area from the condo as parking is difficult. The restaurant by the condo La …… was just ok. They seemed disinterested in being there and the prices seemed a little high. We ate at the taco stand on the right as you come into the beach area and it was very good and reasonable. The other restaurant we ate at was La Pescadores; food was good nothing specular and pricing was reasonable. Go to Akumal Pueblo for something different. We ate at Ultimo Maya, a little hole in the wall on the north side of the street... Great flautas and cheap beer. Try the grilled chicken from the shack (literally) on the south side of the street at the end of town. Awesome. Make sure you go to Tulum. The town is fun and the beaches are awesome. Go all the way down to the area where Ziggy's beach club is. Waves are a blast and the water is gorgeous. Food in Tulum is great. Try the tacos at the carnicera (meat market) that is across the street from the bus station. 12-15 tacos feed a family of 4. You can bring beer and they will give you a cup to pour into. Also try the fish place at the end of town on the east side of the street (painted blue). Fantastic fish. Lastly, the taco shop on the west side of the street about 2/3 rds down is awesome, only open after 6 I believe. Easy to find as there will be a line out the door. Over all I cannot recommend this condo and area more highly. Great vacation, we will be back in the future.

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Dennis for sharing your great condo with us. The condo was perfect. It had everything you could want to enjoy your vacation. The view could not be beat. 3 steps to the sand. We saw 6 turtles laying their eggs. Great experience. Couple minute walk to convenience store, dining, and lagoon. About a 30 minute walk to town. Turtle Bay Bakery was our favorite. Great for breakfast and happy hour. Don't miss the shrimp tacos. The management company was great. Security let us know when a turtle was laying eggs. Looking forward to returning to La Bahia #2 and Akumal in the near future.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5
My family (2 adults, 2 kids) just got back from La Bahia, where we had a lovely vacation. The accommodation was comfortable and the location on the quiet beach was perfect. It was also easy to get around to see the sights (Tulum, cenotes, etc.). We ate in 2 nights, which was a nice break from eating out at the excellent restaurants in the neighbourhood. The wind was quite high and the sea was choppy for the first few days that we were there, but we swam at Akumal beach on those days, and saw turtles there too.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
My family of five, including three young adults, truly enjoyed our time here. We appreciated the wealth of information and guidance and professionalism in the booking process. The staff was helpful and efficient. It was great to have daily maid service from the friendly housekeepers. The condo itself is very comfortable and relaxed. The view and location is priceless. The living room has windows and screens on three sides, providing an indoor/outdoor feel, yet with curtains for privacy as well. We loved the fact that those who wanted to snorkel and scuba dive could easily do so and those who wanted to read in the comfortable chairs or hammock or walk into town could do that as well. All without getting in the car. Hope to return someday!
