About the property

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

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.

Exactly as presented!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful condo with knock your socks off views! Had everything we needed. We snorkeled every day and while the underwater life was limited, the access was easy and tides not too strong. Super clean, daily maid service. Don't forget to go to the rooftop for the sunset and sunrise!

The internet at the condo never worked but if you have Verizon it's easy and cheap to get their travel pass $2 per day. That worked well!

Adventures in Akumal

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Akumal before and this sleepy little village was just what I was looking for. Our condo was well situated for beautiful ocean views, snorkeling at Yal Ku lagoon ,and walking to good restaurants like Que Onda and la Lunita. We picked a windy week which turned out to be a blessing because we made the best of it by trying out options like Aktun Chen where we tried ziplining and Casa Cenote thing for swimming. It was an easy drive to Tulum. So beautiful. The day we left was much less windy and the weather was great. Our condo is clean and well-kept. The maintenance was very helpful in planning our day trips. Thanks to Doreen and all for a great stay.

The view is fantastic, the property clean and well maintained. A few minor inconveniences included a pool filtration issue and lack of hot water in the shower.

Beautiful condo with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week there, and were most happy. An added bonus was friendly neighbors, which does not always happen with condo rentals.

Amazing week at an amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property at the quiet end of the bay! Perfect place to relax, cook, and enjoy the breeze from the water. The staff was accommodating and helpful. Getting in and out of the property was easy and without hassle. The owner provided great recommendation's as well as travel instructions. We will defiantly be back to this bay and all it has to offer!

Perfect, quiet location for R & R

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I came here to celebrate finishing grad school, looking for a peaceful, quiet place to do absolutely nothing but sit, stare, drink beer, sunbathe and relax--we got exactly what we needed! The condo was just as pictured, if not better, and far enough away from town to be quiet and unspoiled by crowds, but close enough to walk into town. There's a little grocery about 1/4 mile up the way to get beer, some supplies, and it's about a mile or so into the main square to the full grocery store. It was pretty windy the whole week we were there (1/12-1/17), but still warm and wonderful. Never had to use the AC. Watching the pelicans graze low over the ocean was one of my favorite things. Buena Vida restaurant (famous for its bar swings) was about 1/3 mile up the road (maybe less) and our favorite for tacos each night. The pools aren't heated, so unfortunately it was a bit too chilly to use them when it wasn't above 80 degrees, but the last day was warm enough to dip in for a minute. Waking up to this view and hearing the ocean all night was an amazing experience and I'm already plotting how I can go back! Thanks Doreen, for giving us just what we needed after a stressful 3 years!
