Overview

Akumal Condo Rental Photos and Description

New To Rental Market 2BR/2BA Ocean Front Condo North Akumal

Come enjoy the quiet side of the Riviera Maya at Casa Q our updated 2BR/2BA condo on the North end of Half Moon Bay in Akumal. The ocean is right out your front door with beach chairs and palapas and a walkway right onto the reef protected Half Moon Bay. If fresh water is what you desire there is a lovely ocean front plunge pool right outside our front door or you can sit and read a book beside the Garden pool surrounded by lush gardens carefully tended by the meticulous and dedicated staff.

Casa Q has 2 King Bedrooms both of which have great cross breezes as well as views of the Bay without getting out of bed. Both have comfy mattresses with fresh sheets and colorful linens. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with en-suite access with one also having access from the main condo living area. The condo is on the first floor so there are no stairs to climb.

While there are many good places to eat in Akumal and the surrounding area, should you wish to cook, the Kitchen has been updated with everything you need to cook a great meal including quality cookware and all of the gadgets you need to cook a simple breakfast to a gourmet meal. The kitchen was recently updated with new Coastal Cottage Cabinets, a double apron front farm sink and butcher block counters. Coffee, juice and milk are provided upon arrival. We also keep the kitchen stocked with cooking basics such as flour, sugar, spices and cooking oils.

With the ocean and pools you may never want to leave Casa Q but when you do you are walking distance to World Famous Yal Ku Lagoon for great snorkeling. For the more seasoned snorkeler Half Moon Bay is a treat though the current, wave action and shallowness of the reef make it less suitable for beginners. And for those that want to swim or snorkel with sea turtles, Casa Q is just 1.5km from Akumal Bay by foot, bike, golf cart or car.

Restaurants close by include Que Onda (Home Made Pasta) , La Lunita (Barefoot feet in the sand fine dining), La Buena Vida (Great food and a beach bar with swings for stools). In town are also Turlte Bay Cafe and Bakery (Great Stickey Buns), Lol Ha, Cueva de Pesca, and Poncho Villas, Imeldas and the Loncheria Akumalito

We are also 10 minutes to the pueblo of Chemuyil, 15 minutes from Puerto Aventuras, 20 minutes from the Ruins at Tulum and 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen. The Cancun International Airport is just 75 minutes away and there are several options for transfers. Just ask.

Daily housekeeping is included in your rate as is the use of 2 Beach Cruiser bicycles and 2 Eddyline Sea Kayaks.

The owners are in residence from early May thru the end of October so the unit is not available for rent during that period. Sorry for any inconvenience.

About Bruce Pumphrey & Susan Chrest

We fell in love with Akumal about 10 years ago and have bee dreaming about having a home here since that day to enjoy and share with others. We live in Akumal from May through October. We love making our home here and hope you will enjoy it to.

Bruce Pumphrey & Susan Chrest purchased this condo in 2014

Why Bruce Pumphrey & Susan Chrest chose Akumal

As our home for 6 months of the year, we want our guests to feel just as at home. It is equipped as a home with quality cookware and linens. We want you to feel at home in our home.

What makes this condo unique

We are in the quiet north side of Akumal. With the reef right out front and Yal Ku just a short walk away, we are a snorkelers dream. Restaurants are a short walk as well but we are just 20 minutes to Tulum and 30 minutes to Playa del Carmen. Accessible, peaceful, tranquil, beautiful and comfortabl is how I would describe Casa Q.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This condo in Akumal was even better than the photos. In addition to a beautiful condo, the condo was outfitted with everything we could possibly need - a fully equipped kitchen (perfect for us because we like to cook at least one or more meals a day), snorkeling gear, kayaks with life jackets and paddles, beach towels, and more.

The location couldn't have been better - a quiet part of Akumal but a short walk or drive away from all the action. It is right around the corner from Yal-Ku but multiple people we talked to said Yal-Ku is not the same as before and the snorkeling in front of the condo is even better. we snorkeled a lot as did our children and we loved it - I could only see going to Yal-Ku if you had kids that weren't strong swimmers as there are some areas with fairly strong currents in Half Moon Bay. Our kids are an athletic 9 and 11 and had no trouble keeping up with us.

The property is very clean and beautifully maintained. The housekeeping comes daily and is wonderful as well.

Bruce and Susan were super helpful, responded promptly and super friendly.

This was our second time in the area in as many years. Last time we rented a large house in Akumal Sur because we came with family but being just our little crowd, we opted for the condo which was perfect. It was also great because there were other kids and travelers in the condo complex and we met a lot of great people.

Though we have our favorite places to eat in Tulum already (El Pollo Bronco, El Camello Jr.) Bruce and Susan's suggestion of Chamico's was a great one and the beach there was outstanding. While at the condo we also went snorkeling with the sea turtles in Akumal Bay which is well worth the trip.

I would absolutely rent the condo again and hope to do so soon. Thank you Bruce and Susan!

Perfect, relaxing stay for our young family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Location: Away from the hustle and bustle ... seems like the carribbean is your only neighbor. Absolutely beautiful.

Property: Meticulously kept, lush, and beautiful. Frankly I was surprised at how well manicured it was.

Condo: Well appointed, casually decorated, very nice materials, perfect for our family of four (two kids 3 and 5). Tile floors and concrete construction keeps everything cool and clean. Hot showers, ice cold independently controlled A/C in each room, very comfortable and large beds with nice, clean linens. Two nice bathrooms and a living room about 50' from the water's edge. Hard to suggest any improvements.

Owner: Extremely helpful, kind and quick to respond to any inquiry. It was a pleasure dealing with him.

I would reccommend this property to anyone with the understanding that it is not the closest to town. That is one of the reasons we chose this spot, it's quieter and, I thought, more relaxing than the jumble of properties huddled tightly along the remainder of the bay. I would personally choose this location again. The bike ride into town is pleasant and safe. On the other hand, this property is a very short walk to Yal Ku Lagoon and Que Onda which was one of our favorite restaurants.

This was our best vacation, hands down.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

I came on this vacation not knowing what to expect but fell in love with the property and town of Akumal. The accommodations were amazing, the condo is very clean, bright and cheery. Daily housekeeping was a nice surprise! It was so fun to ride bikes around and do different things each day but then be able to come back to our quiet condo. It was the perfect getaway for me who is someone that likes things casual and slow, not touristy or busy. I am coming back again for sure!

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Q. Dealing with Bruce was a breeze always a prompt response to any questions. The location was the best. Fantastic ocean view ,ground floor with the choice of 2 pools, and a reef for snorkelling steps away into the beautiful clear blue water , at the calm end of the bay. We are 2 couples and the 2 bedrooms each had adjoining bathrooms. King beds were comfy as well as the pillows and linens . The kitchen was fully equipped with a great staff always ready to help. Thanks for opening your home to us. It is a wonderful home away from home. M

Amazing condo, great place, fantastic people!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo - the location, the view, the decorating - it was perfect! Bruce & Sue were amazing from the 1st Emil sent all the way through our trip. I went with a friend & it was great to each have our own room with comfy king size beds & our own bath. This would also be a great condo for 2 couples. We felt completely safe everywhere we went. Akumal is quiet but there are some fun restaurants & lots to do. Snorkeling with the sea turtles on Akumal beach is amazing! The staff were wonderful! I would highly recommend Akumal & this condo!
