Overview

Akumal Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This is a beachfront ocean view paradise. Whether you snorkel or dive just a few steps outside your door in Half Moon Bay (the snorkeling in front is incredible!) or take a leisurely walk to nearby Yal Ku Lagoon to swim with its abundant fish and sea turtles; or just want to take a quick dip in the pool between relaxed reading on the beach you’ll enjoy this conveniently located condominium in South Akumal on the Mayan Rivera.

Our condominium has one of the best views in Akumal, perched on the north point of Half Moon Bay. This oceanfront condo has large tinted glass walls facing the sea, providing an awesome view from the living room, kitchen and dining room.

There is a full kitchen with utensils, daily maid service and fresh drinking water.

The ocean side tanning area is pure sand maintained by a retaining wall at water's edge. There are thatched shade umbrellas and chaise lounges on the sand making a very nice tanning area. Some of the best snorkeling is right off the condos on the north end of the bay. A small pool is located just off the beach, cool off after sunbathing.

Nearby another excellent snorkeling opportunity awaits in Yal ku lagoon which is just a 5 minute walk away. Before you get to Yal ku you will pass Que Onda Italian restaurant serving fresh pasta, Italian specialties, fine wines and yummy deserts. A convenience store is by the parking lot in front of the condos for last minute items. Farther south down the north Akumal road are more restaurants, convenience stores, La Buena Vida bar/restaurant and their dive shop, and finally the heart of Akumal at Akumal Bay. There you will find grocery stores, gift shops, Lol ha beach bar and restaurant, two dive shops, and of course, famous Akumal main beach. Both Akumal main beach and Half Moon Bay are famous for marine turtles who can usually be seen on any given snorkeling session.

The beautiful Tulum Ruins are only 20 minutes drive, there are several local cenotes 5 minutes away.

About Doreen

My husband, my daughter and I live in Portland, Oregon. The very first time I went to Akumal I absolutely fell in love with it. I never thought I would want to own proprty In Mexico and then I discoverd the Yucatan and the Carribean. A owner of the property where we were staying told me the condo was for sale, Three month later I flew down to take ownership.

Doreen purchased this condo in 2008

Why Doreen chose Quintana Roo

The ocean view is absolutely amazing and I love the two swimming pools. I can't get enough of the snokeling directly out front.

What makes this condo unique

Once again the view are what make this condo so charming. I made a staind glass window in Portland and hauled it down with me to add to the charm. All the pictures were hand chosen to reresent the area and fit in to the environment. I have done all I can to make it personal and comfortable with out feeling like you are in someone elses home.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second trip staying in this beautiful condo and will defiantly return!

Half Moon Bay is our favorite place to visit, with or without our children. We have visited several times and Doreen's condo is our first choice when traveling as a couple. You cannot beat the view and the best snorkeling with in feet of your door. The condo is well equipped, has everything we need and the staff is awesome. The maid took time to figure out our daily schedule and then adjusted hers which was so thoughtful. The grounds are beautiful and with two pools, you can always find a quiet spot to relax.

Doreen is very responsive and a pleasure to work with!

We highly recommend this beautiful property!!!

Had a wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described. It was great to be able to snorkel right out the door. La buena vida was a nightly stop for us. Wonderful fish tacos and atmosphere. Would go back to this place if the world wasn't so big with so many different destinations. Loved the Myan ruins at Coba and cenote dos ojos. Get to them early to avoid the crowds and heat of the day. Thanks Doreen!!!

Amazing views and so comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

First off, I need to thank Doreen for her lightening-fast response when the Homeaway app failed us; we foolishly waited to get directions and entry info until last minute, and just our luck, the Homeaway site was being buggy. Doreen forwarded the info within minutes of our email, plus a wealth of tips about the area. The condo is well-equipped and stylish with awesome views. We had spent a couple of days prior in a rustic Tulum beach cabana, so we definitely enjoyed the "mod cons"! The breezes through the open windows were lovely so we only used the a/c at night while sleeping. If you are into snorkeling, this is a great spot: it's a 5 minute walk to Ya-Kul Lagoon, and Hector at the reception desk will rent gear (as well as bicycles) for a very reasonable sum. The turtles in the bay eluded us but it was cool to see their nests on the beach. I recommend visiting in late May for that reason, as well as for the lull in the tourist crowds.

Nice location for Akumal

  • 4 of 5

The condo is well situated near the North end of Half Moon Bay in a quiet and verdant setting. There are two small pools, a nice seaside sitting area, a shallow reef (but no sandy beach) right in front of the building, and ample parking space for your car.There also are a number of resident iguanas, and we saw agoutis, coatis (pizotes) and some interesting bird life on the grounds and nearby.The management and cleaning staff were all pleasant and helpful. The unit itself is ample for two people, although with a rather small bathroom. The kitchen appliances are becoming dated and show the results of years spent by the sea, but they worked OK. The one a/c unit, in the bedroom, functioned only in cooling mode and could not be regulated to stop cooling once a comfortable temperature was reached. Fortunately, we had a good breeze for most evenings and did not require a/c at those times. Wifi was slow, but no worse than what we encountered elsewhere in Akumal and the Yucatan in general. People with physical limitations should know that the unit is up one flight of stairs, that the tile floors throughout the unit can be very slippery, and that the bedroom and bath are a step up from the main living area, which could pose a safety issue.

Great for couples!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to stay. We loved the condo, and loved being on half moon bay. We didn't have a car, so the office rented is bicycles for cheap and it was easy to get into Akimal. Loved Akumal! Loved the snorkeling right outside the condo, loved everything about our stay. The neighbors were nice to us and told us the best restaurants and best companies to go through for excursions. This was so much better than doing an all inclusive deal!

Wow, our first impression as we walked into the room was a wall of windows that you could see all of Half Moon Bay! The place was comfortable, nicely decorated. We did not miss the TV- we enjoyed the movies. There was so much to do in the area: swim with the

turtles, cenote Santa Cruz tour, snorkle with fish, happy hour at Buena Vida as we sat on the swings, (watched turtles swim there too) Sian Kian is a must see. Great experience! Thanks Dorien for sharing your paradise.
