SUITE 103 - TWO BEDROOM APARTMENT

Akumal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Three bedroom townhouse or two bedroom and one bedroom suites each with kitchen

This serene garden setting, sheltered behind a gated limestone wall, invites quiet repose among green palms and bright blooming bougainvillea, soothed by the burbling waters of a natural rock fountain. A broad plant filled courtyard sits within the wings of the house, at one side a three bedroom townhouse constructed for flexibility, which may be rented as a whole or divided into one and two bedroom units each with full kitchen and dining areas, on the other a bright and airy one bedroom apartment on the upper level. Each suite is uniquely decorated to provide a comfortable homelike atmosphere. A private balconies on the upper level look out over the garden, and the lower level opens directly onto the central courtyard and a private front terrace.

The compound faces a natural park on a quiet lane away from traffic, around the corner from the entrance to Yalku Lagoon and a convenient 250 meters from the beach on Half Moon Bay. Akumal Bay Beach and the commercial center are a short two kilometers down the beach road.

Here in Akumal we respect our neighbor species. We don't swim with captive dolphins penned in artificial canals. Instead we can swim out into Akumal Bay to watch the giant sea turtles graze among the sea grass in their natural environment. They tolerate humans as long as we don't approach too close. In summer at night turtles climb onto the beaches of Akumal's three bays to lay their eggs in the sand. Throughout the summer months one may encounter their protected nests. CEA (the Centro Ecologico de Akumal), the only community organization on the Caribbean Coast dedicated to the protection of our unique environments, has special programs for children centered on our turtle population. From August to November they conduct groups to view the emerging baby turtles race to the sea as only turtles can.

Yalku Lagoon is a protected habitat where many species of colorful tropical fish swim in the crevices of the collapsed cenotes feeding into the lagoon.

To help you stay fit and healthy while on your vacation, we have added a Fitness Center for our guests with a treadmill, elliptical and rowing machines and a weight machine. Another feature popular with our guests is the roof garden sunning area with a tented gazebo for those who would rather read or relax in shade and breeze.

After visiting Akumal yearly over a twenty year span in order to enjoy the opportunities for open water and cave diving in the area, we began to plan for our retirement. So, in 2002 we purchased Casa Gatos, and when we retired eight years later packed our cats into our cars and shipped our possessions in a twenty foot container to this quaint and laid back resort community on the Caribbean Coast.

We didn't undertake the move lightly, leaving behind all that was familiar to live in a foreign country among people that we only knew casually from short vacation trips. It proved to be the best decision we could have made. Akumal is such a friendly and welcoming place, we felt immediately at home. Maintaining the property and taking care of our guests gives us just enough to do. And what has made this the best experience for us is our guests. We enjoy meeting and interacting with people from all over North, South and Central America and Europe. It has added just the right amount of spice to our lives.

The Caribbean Coast of Mexico with its clear and beautiful waters and interesting reefs coupled with a reputation as the safest region of Mexico has seen a surge in tourism, Akumal has been unique in having avoided the explosive growth that transformed Cancun and Playa del Carmen into mega resort cities. It has retained its character as a quiet and laid back village paradise even in high season. Neighbors walk their dogs every morning, run or jog, dive or snorkel when they want or laze around on the beach. There is still more green than concrete here and you would never mistake Akumal for Fort Lauderdale or Miami. Beyond leisure activities, there is access to the historic sites of the great age of Maya Civilization and the Spanish Colonial Cities of the Yucatan Peninsula, with Southern Mexico, .Belize and Guatamala within an easy distance for slightly longer trips.

To sit on the terrace surrounded by the beauty of the garden and the soothing music of the water trickling over the rocks of the fountain is the great bonus of living in Casa Gatos. We have so enjoyed it that we added a garden to the roof, where we can enjoy the sun and breeze, surrounded by cacti, agave and yucca plants. We also added a fitness room.

At the heart of the Riviera Maya, between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, lies the quaint resort town of Akumal. It is nothing like the indistinguishable all-inclusive resorts that offer pampered isolation from their surroundings. Strung along three reef-protected shallow bays, in the midst of untold miles of underwater caves, it is a paradise for diving, fishing, snorkelling, swimming and sunbathing. It's convenient for exploring nearby Mayan ruins, colonial cities, contemporary Maya villages and jungle nature reserves. The house sits on a quiet lane facing a natural park in the neighbourhood of Yalku, within a minute's walk of the entrances to Yalku Lagoon and the beach at Half Moon Bay. Akumal also offers world class Yoga, and massages, nine restaurants and three dive centres, boutiques and stores. Day trips take you to Chichen Itza, Valladolid, Coba, Tulum, Sian Kaan, Xel Ha, Hidden Worlds, X-caret, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Cancun, Isla Mujeres; overnight to Merida or Holbox.

Other Activities: Swimming with sea turtles, Cave diving, Eco-Tours

Golf: The Riviera Maya is a golfer's paradise. In Akumal, less than a mile south of the entrance, lies the world class Bahia Principe Golf Course, 18 hole par 72 (Robert Tent Jones design). Puerto Aventuras Golf Course is ten miles north, 9 hole. Playacar Golf Course just south of Playa del Carmen about 20 miles, 18 hole par 72 (Robert Van Hagge design). North of Playa del Carmen are Mayacoba Golf Course 18 hole par 72 (Greg Norman design) and Iberostar Golf Course 18 hole par 72 (P.B. Dye design).
