~WELCOME TO OUR DREAM: SeaScape~

Offering the utmost in Caribbean charm and comfort, this spacious fifteen-hundred square foot two bedroom, two bath condominium is located in beautiful Akumal. On the north end of Half Moon Bay, this ocean front condominium is just a few feet away from a white sand beach, and just a few steps further to the water, and a stunning coral reef.

Opposite the beach in the courtyard, beautiful gardens surround a large pool that includes a lap lane. It provides a shady lush contrast to the surf and beach. The owner, a professional landscape designer has transformed her garden area with many unique flaura of the region, including orchids and citrus trees. You will be surrounded by beauty.

The condominium, nestled between the gardens and the beach, on the ground floor, has floor-to-ceiling windows. This provides expansive views to the beach and bay, and along with the extra tall ceilings create an extra sense of spaciousness to the already large open design. As a second living area, the beach-side covered patio is fully screened and in addition to its comfortable seating has a stunning sea-life wall mural of Half Moon Bay! Simply step outside to the lawn area with your own PRIVATE BEACH LOUNGERS and then 5 steps and you are on the beach.

You know you've reached SeaScape just by it's entrance which has a custom stained glass transome depicting its name. Stepping inside, you are immediately transfixed by the FULL view of Half Moon Bay and our beach. The living and dining areas are designed for maximum viewing and living pleasure towards this view.

Throughout the condo special touches abound. SeaScape is decorated and outfitted using the best of local materials and craftsmanship: including stained glass, handpainted Talavera ceramics, mexican handblown glass, and sustainable local hardwood furniture.

There are two king-size bedrooms with full bathrooms. Both bedrooms have special orthopedic mattresses and extreme padding, combined with 450ct egyption cotton linens and multiple pillow types provide the most comfortable sleeping in ALL OF AKUMAL.

Of course, SeaScape's kitchen is well outfitted for all types of entertaining.

All amenities are provided for a quiet, relaxing but fulfilling vacation. As this is the owner's private retreat, there are many extras that won't be found in most other condos. Special features are throughout, just too many to list.

Akumal is sixty miles south of Cancun International Airport, south on the four lane, newly renovated highway 307.

About Diana

I have always loved vacationing to and experiencing different cultures. And for some reason could never get enough beach or snorkeing time! We dreamed of owning our own 2nd home, and when we came to Akumal in 1995, it set the standard for our dream. We wanted to create our little slice of paradise with all the ideas that we had gathered, and providing the perfect casual, luxury getaway for ourselves and our guests.

Diana purchased this condo in 2004

Why Diana chose Quintana Roo

Half Moon Bay is a wonderful very low-density populated community. We love feeling as though we are truely away from it all, but still being only 15 minutes from everything. We have a wonderful large pool, as well as gardens and no crowds on the beach. The set up of our building is such that it feels more like attached houses, not condos.

What makes this condo unique

We love sitting anywhere in the condo and having a fabulous view and gardening on our grounds. We love to go snorkeling right out in our bay, seeing the baby fishes that have just hatched, and swimming with the turtles. And then in the evenings at dusk walking the beach watching the flocks of pelicans fly inland for the night, and then grilling out on our beach and watching the sun go down.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have been visiting Akumal for over 10 years, and progressively fallen in love with the area. So we decided to find and buy our dream beach place, hence SeaScape! We love the tranquility and naturalness, all the colors of the Caribbean, being able to just step off the beach porch in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the reef creatures, and being lulled to sleep with the sound of the surf. We hope that you will join us in our little piece of paradise.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Love! Love! Love!I have been to Akumal twice and stayed here both times! I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The privacy of being at the end of Half Moon Bay is exactly what my family and I were looking for! The view is amazing, and best reef snorkel spot in Akumal. The property is immaculately kept, great pool for cooling off after a long beach day, inside of unit is just beautiful and so comfortable. We have stayed a week each time and wished we could've stayed longer. Dianna is amazing to work with and highly recommend this condo.

Our Family Loved It - Excellent Pool, Beach & Snorkeling

  • 5 of 5

This property is terrific for a family get away. The unit itself is very nice with a comfortable floor plan, beautiful furnishings and a location steps from the pool. We had 4 people total with two kids (8 and 10). We had more than enough room and could have accommodated another 2 easily. Most of the other units were occupied by families and the vibe was very relaxed. The beach area had lots of fish, crabs and other creatures for the kids to explore (even a very cool spotted eel at the bottom of the steps). The reef was swim-able for our kids with adult accompaniment (there is a bit of current), we saw turtles and plenty of fish. On the days when it was to windy for the main reef, the Yal-Ku snorkeling cove is a quiet, 2 block walk and worth every penny. This area of Akumal is quiet and it is easy to walk to a store, restaurant or just to enjoy the scenery. The staff is helpful and friendly, and the sandwich shop on the next street over has fantastic breakfast tortas. We loved the unit and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful get away by the beach and pool. Thanks Diana.

Seascape says it all

  • 5 of 5

Seascape proved to be exactly the beautiful and restful location for the rest and recreation for which we hoped. The proximity and views of the bay are unmatched. The sound of the surf always in the background. There is plenty of both sun and shade on the beach area right outside the front door. We enjoyed the grassy area for outdoor drinks and morning coffee. The condo was a spacious accommodation for two couples. We had zero problems with any equipment including Wifi and TV. We enjoyed using the well appointed kitchen and colorful tableware for our breakfasts and lunch while taking advantage of the great local restaurants for dinner. The pool was refreshing and we usually had it to ourselves. The location of La Sirena at the end of the bay keeps traffic and noise down. We found the condo beach area to be large, private, and never crowded. The bay was filled with snorkelers all week. It is a bit tricky getting in and out through the rocks but worth the effort. We were repeatly commenting on Seascape's spaciousness and comfort. The high ceilings and bright decor were delightful. We have rented in on the Rivera Maya several times and would highly recommend Seascape as a wonderful choice. Our communication with Diana was very easy and helpful. She takes personal interest in seeing that her guests have a great experience.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful family vacation! The condo was very easy to get to and Diana had everything you could possibly need. The snorkeling out front was amazing and the gardens and pool were a great way to relax after a long day in the sun. We are looking forward to returning to Akumal in the future (maybe next time without the kids!).

Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you're planning to vacation in this part of the world, you can't possibly do better than Seascape condo in Akumal. This condo is, hands down, the best in the area in terms of location and amenities. As independent word travelers who cringe at the idea of being confined to a resort or cruise ship, we knew we wanted a rental for this trip and were fortunate to find exactly what we were looking for with Seascape.

Seascape's location in Akumal simply can't be beat. The beach side of Akumal is basically a long stretch of road that hugs the ocean, bordered by the public Akumal Bay Beach at one end and Half-Moon Bay at the other. In between, it's populated by condos, homes and small restaurants and shops, while Akumal Pueblo (across the freeway) is more of a working town. Seascape is located in a wonderful complex, La Sirena, on Half-Moon Bay, practically at the end of the beach road. We found this ideal; very quiet but within walking distance to whatever we needed. The condo itself is beautiful and truly had everything we could possibly want or need. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen had everything to hand. The bed was comfortable, shower just right, as was the TV, DVD player, internet and stereo. We utilized open windows for the marvelous sea breezes whenever possible. Out the back door was Half-Moon Bay with fine snorkeling, swimming and lounging and out the front door was the pool set in the gorgeous gardens, always clean and inviting. The property is immaculately maintained and residents and staff alike were very friendly and helpful. Yal-Ku Lagoon, for excellent snorkeling, is just a 5 minute walk down the road, and although we had a car, once we got to Seascape we basically parked it except for grocery shopping. Although a car is recommended, you could definitely do without one if you're in decent shape and walk or bike. We had no trouble walking to all the local dining options from the condo. For excursions outside of Akumal, you can always hire transportation.

We managed to plug in our major Yucatan sightseeing on either end of our condo rental rental week, which left us with the week we spent at Seascape free for soaking up the sunshine, snorkeling, swimming and simply relaxing. We'd begin our days with ocean-side coffee in the lounge chairs and end them in the same place, accompanied by the sounds of the waves and the stars overhead. This was a most relaxing vacation for us and we certainly hope to return some day!

amazing condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is amazing, Diana has the condo so well equipped, she thought about everything one could possibly need. As close as one can get to the sea in the mayan riviera.

The swimming pool is awesome and the snorkel in front of the condo beautiful.

Amazing sunsets.

Lovely kitchen.

Away from the crowds, and close to yolk, the turtles and many other attractions.
