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.

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!

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for a week with my boyfriend and we had an amazing time. This place is perfect for a stay in Akumal. The condo is right on the waterfront and the views are incredible. The living room window overlooks the water and you can snorkel right in front of the condo. We saw some needle fish and really bright tropical fish that were in the reef. There are also two pools there and we spent a lot of time in the pools relaxing after we would get back from a full day of exploring the nearby cenotes. It was a short walk to akumal beach where we swam with sea turtles for hours and sat on the beautiful beach.

The condo was very comfortable with king size beds and a cozy futon in the living room. The place has a lot of local artwork that really makes it feel special. It was nice to be able to cook our own meals with the fully stocked kitchen and dining room area. But, there were also nearby restaurants with amazing seafood when we wanted to go out. The housekeeping staff were very friendly and kept the place looking beautiful. We didn't want to leave it was just such a beautiful vacation.

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and it was an amazing experience. This is an incredible place with greatviews. The beach is right out the door and it is a short walk to the water. There is amazing snorkeling spot right off of the property with a coral reef and many tropical fish. It is also only a 15 minute walk to Akumal Bay where the snorkeling is phenomenal. There are so many sea turtles and tropical fish in the water at Akumal Bay.
The condo is beautiful with large bedrooms and a fully stocked kitchen. The main room is right on the waterfront and the views are amazing especially when the sun sets. The housekeeping staff is very nice and keep the rooms looking beautiful. My favorite part of the place was that you could jump into the ocean after a long day of sight-seeing or you could jump into either of the two pools located at the condo. The beds were very comfortable too and there is even a futon that can fold out into a bed in the living room.
We had such an amazing stay here and hope to come back again soon.

My Fiancée and I spent at week with some friends at this condo in Akumal and it was absolutely wonderful. First off, the location is perfect, right in the Heart of Akumal. Everything that you want to explore to is either an incredibly close drive or just a short walk away. I think that we snorkeled almost every at Akumal beach (which is only a fifteen minute leisurely walk from the condo) and so everyday we got to see beautiful sea turtles, manta rays, and coral structures (as well as a shocking diversity of other sea creatures). And the water is so clear that you can see these creatures from quite some distance and then swim in closer. At one point, out of nowhere a huge sea turtle swam right by me on his own accord, not the least bit troubled by my presence or any other person's for that matter.

Most often we'd all finish swimming and then go on the hunt for food, and if you like incredible food for good prices then you are in luck. There are a number of affordable and delicious restaurants nearby, especially if you're willing to do a little research and discover some of the less known local haunts (one restaurant we went to seemed to be known for their Al Pastor and I swear it was some of the best food I've ever eaten and I got stuffed to the brim full of food for no more than five dollars).

Also, if you love swimming and underwater exploration, Akumal is again the place to go. Underwater caves, or cenotes, are everywhere and they are so much fun to explore. The water in them is so clear that the sunlight actually travels through the water and makes exploration super bright, fun, and simple. I think we swam in four different cenotes and all of them were beautiful and fun to explore.

As for the condo itself... it was great! The staff was courteous, kind, and just a pleasure talk to and they kept the condo spotlessly clean. There was plenty of sleeping area for the six of us that were staying there and all the beds were comfortable and clean. The condo is set up so that the air blows through it and it makes the whole place feel very open and natural. Just outside the condo are two pools (one of which has seats up near the edge facing the water) and after a long hard day of swimming and eating, its great to relax in a pool with some friends and a gorgeous view.

All in all the condo and the area it is in were both beautiful, warm, and inviting. Anyone would have a great time there. Highly Recommended!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5
This is definitely the place to experience all that Akumal, Mexico has to offer! The condo is situated directly overlooking the crystal blue Half-Moon Bay and the Caribbean Sea. Overall, the community is very quiet but VERY accessible to attractions. Very friendly faces everywhere, even walking to and from restaurants at night! From La Iguna Condos (where this condo is located) it is only a 10-minute walk to about six fantastic restaurants ranging from tiny local restaurants, to beach-front bars, all the way to a fine dining restaurant almost right next door.
I went snorkeling with Akumal Dive Shop which was amazing. You can also snorkel at your own pace by just walking out the front door of the condo into the water! The water is very warm, clear, and safe. I definitely recommend wearing water shoes due to some sea urchins which are to be expected in the Caribbean. The private beach out front is never crowded, so you have plenty of space to spread out, and everyone who was staying in the other units of La Iguana were super friendly! You'll definitely make some new friends here in Akumal. There are two amazing stores right outside the arch of Akumal to shop for groceries and souvenirs! Also, right near the arch (about 1 mile from the condo) is beach access to Akumal beach which is more of a public beach. The water there is very shallow and the beach is fantastic. Never overcrowded like some resort areas!
The unit itself is very comfortable. The couch in the living room, of course with the nice television, is literally only about 25 feet from the ocean! Both bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable and spacious. The daily housekeeping service is great--they take care of everything for you! And they do it with a smile which makes it even better. The door to this condo is right next to the covered pool, and only about 10 feet from the private outdoor pool. Certainly the best location in the entire building! Also, you can walk out of the front of the condo OR the main door to the condo and be in the sand within 10 steps. :)
I highly recommend this accommodation for anyone-whether it be a family, a couple, or a solo adventure, you will certainly have a great time!

Loved staying here!!

  • 5 of 5
Akumal is a wonderful place to visit no matter where you stay, but this place was FABULOUS! Beautiful view from anywhere in the condo, and especially from the small pool right outside the front door.
You can walk right off the beach for great snorkeling (watch for the urchins though!). Half moon bay has none of the tour groups that flood the main Akumal Bay, allowing you to explore at your own pace without worrying about people. You could even swim on over to the fun and delicious beach bar La Buena Vida just across the bay.
The place was super clean, thanks to the lovely staff that came every day! Beds were comfortable (even the futon!) and everything felt new and clean. We didn't cook much while we were there, but the kitchen was beautiful and had everything we needed.
We also had lots of fun outings, thanks to great suggestions from the owners, including cenotes, restaurants, and other hidden gems. - Don't miss La Chiampanequa in nearby Tulum.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet and relaxing retreat as a home base for their trip!
