About Rosemary Johnson

My husband (John), American, is recently retired from the IMF. I (Rosemary) am English and a retired Nursery School Director. We searched for 5 years for a Caribbean beachfront location to spend several months each year during our retirement. When we accidentally found the gem that is Akumal along the Riviera Maya in Mexico we knew we had found our second home.

Rosemary Johnson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rosemary Johnson chose Akumal

Akumal is an exceptionally friendly, quiet little beach town, with fabulous snorkeling, offering coral reef and sea turtles right from the beautiful white sand and palm tree beach.

What makes this condo unique

Mi Casa del Mar is an attractively designed building of 14 condo units on four levels. The common areas include a large shaded lobby, ocean-front infinity pool, lounge chairs, shaded gazebo and outside shower. The condo is about a 5 minute walk from Akumal village and the beautiful Akumal Bay. It is close enough to enjoy the powder white beach and numerous turtles of the bay and the delicacies of the local restaurants, yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet and peacefulness of being off the beaten track. Walking 5 minutes in the other direction takes you to the picturesque Half Moon Bay and other restaurants and gift shops. About a 20 minute walk from the condo is Yalku Lagoon where for a small fee you can snorkel in the calm, clear waters of the lagoon with hundreds of tropical fish.

Review Submitted: November 5, 2008 Date of Stay: May 2008

I have just booked my third stay at this property in Akumal. It is a perfect setting for a small group, 3 couples or a family. The condo is beautiful, well maintained, fully equipped and more than worth the rental fee. The rooms, pool, ocean view and uniqueness of this place is indescribable. The perfect place for a quiet getaway vacation. We enjoyed the local food, snorkeling and low key feel of this village. I would and have recommended this to friends and family. I am hesitant to let out the secret!

This property is beautiful. Beach on one side, jungle on the other. I love falling asleep at night to the sound of the waves. The master bathroom is a real treat - shower in nature! The property was fully equipped with lots of current dvd's which came in hand on the cloudy days. Eating breakfast on the patio was a great start to the day. The staff are incredibly kind and helpful. We hired them to cook one night and what a treat. There are no peddlers on the beach pushing goods. The local town people are kind and eager to please. The snorkeling is great. The Beaches are white, clean, and so peaceful. This is my new found paradise and I can not wait to return.

A Oceanfront Beauty.........

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple spent a wonderful week at this incredible oceanfront condo. The spectacular views are breathtaking and the expansive terrace area is a vacation all by itself. The entire condo is very well equipped with everything you could possibly imagine. The infinity-pool is a real treat and incredibly relaxing. The owners were extremely helpful and prompt with questions and answering emails. The caretakers and housekeepers are attentive and helpful. I would most certainly recommend this condo and would book it again in a heartbeat.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Our week long stay in this well appointed condo was everything we wanted and more. Hosts were thoughtful in welcoming and staff was attentive and friendly. The space was glorious both indoors and out. We have travelled to Akumal for 15 years. This is one of its hidden gems.

Gorgeous property - extremely happy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed just over a week in the condo. Four people so more than enough room for everyone. Akumal is a delightful town we've been going to for years - full of snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, and within driving distance of a number of more land adventures. The condo itself is huge and has several gorgeous outdoor terraces where we would spend quite a bit of time. Pool shared among the eight condo units but we were then only ones ever in it while there. Only slight negative is that the wifi was a bit spotty - only matters if you need to check in for work though.

Perfect 'home away from home' in a little piece of paradise...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here over Christmas with our 2 adult children and 2 of their friends (all in their 20's). This condo was perfect for 6 of us. It's centrally located within the village and only takes 5 minutes or so (walking) to go south to the beach and little market or to the north to La Buena Vida (a must). We actually did rent a golf cart and 2 bicycles and they were great. It made exploring the area, hauling our stuff to the beach and back, and going to the market for supplies much easier. We went through Akumal Guide and lined them up before we left home. We highly recommend them, and make sure you do this before you go because they don't have many and they're highly requested.

All of the bedrooms in the condo have air conditioning, which helps for sleeping at night. It was in the 80s while we were there but very humid. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, dishes, silverware, etc and we appreciated the supply of coffee, filters, sugar, creamer, etc.

The view from the condo is magnificent - ocean on one side, jungle on the other. Large patios with lots of lounge chairs and seating. The open air bathroom and shower in the master bedroom is something everyone needs to experience.

We were in contact with the owners of the condo by phone and email many times before we left and they were very accommodating, offering a lot of information and tips on the area.

We arranged transportation from the airport in Cancun to Akumal through USA Transfers, also before we left home, and they were awesome. Because of the massive amount of people in the airport due to the Christmas season there were huge lines going through immigration and customs which delayed us over 2 hours and they were still there to get us to our destination. They will also make a stop in Playa del Carmen for groceries. This we highly recommend!! The markets in Akumal are very very expensive. Because of our delay we couldn't stop that night and had to take a taxi to Puerto Aventuras the next day for supplies. This was still better than paying the prices in Akumal.

One note to add to this review and to show how much we recommend this condo is to say that - If you have to get hit with the influenza bug while on vacation, which some of us did, we couldn't have asked for a more welcome and comfortable home to be in.

Thank you John and Rosemary!

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mi Casa Del Mar for 10 days. It was myself, my wife, our 3 children ages 5, 5 and 7 and my wife's parents. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and it was very comfortable, especially the beds! The master suite is awesome, with the amazing view from the bed to the indoor/outdoor master bath overlooking the jungle.

The location was great, a 5 minute walk to Akumal beach or half moon bay, or you can just enter the water right in front of the condo to snorkel. At Akumal beach, we saw tons of turtles, stingrays, squid, tuna, reef fish, etc.. Just an awesome variety of marine life to experience! We were all in awe every time we entered the sea.

We all loved the infinity pool, especially the kids, they would have spent their entire vacation in the pool if we would have let them! Their favorite thing to do was try to feed the iguana's around the pool, they loved the banana's.

Lots to see and do in the area, we bargained with a bus driver in Akumal for his services for a few days to use him and his van/bus for going to Coba, Tulum ruins and to La Bella Vita beach club in Tulum.

The condo had everything we needed, the staff was great, always keeping us stocked up with water and Maria kept the place spotless! An absolutely great vacation!

Akumal is a beautiful fishing village known locally as the place of the turtle. Snorkeling with the turtles in the bay or with the beautiful tropical fish in Yalku Lagoon are among our favorite things to do. When you are tired of the beautiful sandy beach and palm trees, Akumal offers plenty of activities; several diving outfits offer various levels of diving including bubble diving for children 8 years and older, fishing, sailing sunset cruises or jungle ATV tours. The village also has many cute gift stores, two grocery stores, a spar, gym, tennis court, basketball court and a weekly market. A variety of local restaurants offer excellent and inexpensive local and international dishes.

Within a 30 min drive you can reach many other places: Playa Del Carmen with its famous 5th avenue shopping, dancing and nightlife, Tulum with numerous restaurants and gift shops, three eco water parks, Maya ruins, a monkey sanctuary and swim with dolphin parks. There are also numerous sandy beaches and cenotes for more swimming snorkeling, diving, and zip lines.

Day trips could include; taking a ferry to Cozumel where you can explore both the island and famous reef, exploring the extensive ruins of Chichen Itza, or enjoying one of the many tours offered in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, one of the world’s largest reserves.
