Fabulous Stay on Half Moon Bay
Julie's condo was wonderful and felt like a home. My husband and I & our 7 month old stayed with another couple and it was perfect. We loved the breezy style of her decor, the spanish tiles in the kitchen, her cozy coffee mugs. . . and the best part was being able to walk right out the door to the sand and water. It is not a traditional sand beach and you will need water shoes to walk on the rocks. But we absolutely loved the quiet laid back vibe of Half Moon Bay (not crowded at all in December). We walked to the nearby restaurants several times and practiced our Spanglish with the locals. The condo is cleaned every day by the sweetest lady who loved on our baby and made us feel at home. The grounds are gorgeous and I was even inspired to do some watercolor paintings. I would love to make this a yearly visit and we would definitely recommend Julie's condo at La Serena.
Hannah, Thanks for the review and I am so happy you enjoyed your stay.
Looking forward to having you stay again sometime soon!
BEAUTIFUL AKUMAL RETREAT
The property is everything as advertised, and more. It is a lovely ground floor unit steps from the bay and located at the quiet end of the neighborhood. A sheltered sandy area with lawn chairs and cabanas is just a few feet from the patio. We snorkeled every morning in clear, shallow water. (As noted, the beach is rocky....it's best to bring appropriate water or snorkel shoes). Several very good restaurants are within a short walking distance, as is the gorgeous fresh water snorkeling lagoon (go early to avoid crowds).
The condo is bright, and airy , with both ceiling fans and a wonderful cross-breeze flowing through. The kitchen is very well-equipped, even including a large fruit squeezer for your fresh juices. The condominium housekeeping staff is attentive, hard-working and very nice.
If you have a rental car, Tulum, Playa del Carmen and the Coba ruins are within easy reach.
It's ideal for a quiet, relaxing vacation.
Exactly as advertised and very peaceful
No surprises from the photos or description of the condo. The sound of the waves and ocean were delightful all night long. We only needed the A/C turned on once at night when the wind died down and the humidity rose, otherwise a nice pleasant breeze keeps the condo comfortable. The pool, although not oceanside, is a nice way to cool down after a walk to the main beach in Akumal Bay and as we found out it's not very common to have a pool on HMB let alone one of this size. We really enjoyed Que Onda and La Lunita restaurants - quaint and friendly. Weren't big fans of La Buena Vida for several reasons. While the main part of HMB was having some seaweed issues, being on the northern tip meant no real problems with seaweed accumulations on the shoreline. Also being on the northern tip facing south seemed to protect us from the wind as well. Having a section of grass to lounge on, as well as a sandy portion protected by a seawall, was great. Rosa was awesome and provided excellent housekeeping service. The condo is clean, well appointed, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks Julie!!
Excellent property...great location
Property is well maintained...right on the water in a private location. Close to restaurants and attractions. Quiet area of Akumal Bay.
Our family had a wonderful time at La Sirena #3. This unit is espcially nice as it is on the ground floor with beach access within a few feet (what you see is what you get on the photos). Had a lovely time sitting out on the lounge chairs and relaxing with a book or watching the sunset. Beds were comfy and all the rooms were spacious and comfy. Julie was very helpful with all our questions prior to the trip. Beach is rocky but manageable with water shoes and we were able to snorkel at our beach the first afternoon. Some water shoes and snorkels provided by place or you can buy at convenience store. Also another larger lagoon for snorkeling only 5 minute walk away. Convenience store had most everything we needed for cooking. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance too. Loved it!
On the water, first floor
Very well apointed apartment,. Has everything you might need. Julie is super nice as well. Great base from which to explore all the great beaches and spots along the coast.
The village of Akumal is just 1 hour South of Cancun. There are a variety of great restaurants, bars, unique gift shops, dive shops and grocery stores. Yal Ku Lagoon, one of the most sought out wonders in the area is less than a 5 minute walk away from the condo. This natural body of water is fun to snorkel in and is abundant with tropical fish. Akumal means 'place of the turtle' which is appropriate, for every year giant sea turtles return to lay their eggs in the sand of Halfmoon Bays crescent shaped beach. Tulum is less than 20 minutes away and has one of the areas best site for Mayan Ruins. After you have visited the ruins, spend the day on one of Tulum's beautiful white sandy beaches.
