About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6 with 2 on queen blow-up mattress

If this is your first trip to Akumal, you are in store for a marvelous adventure. “Akumal” means “place of the turtles” in the Mayan language. In season, you can watch the turtles lay their eggs and then march to the sea. You will never forget the experience.

Our condominium is particularly lovely because we have very high ceilings and a large, open floor plan. The living and dining area adjoin, but do not seem like the same space. I have decorated with antiques and art from the region, so you will fell more at home than in some other rentals. We kept it to ourselves for ten years and only started renting in 2008.

We have two spacious bedrooms with king size beds. Both rooms are light and airy. The Master's bath in the room area, while the Guest Room's full bath is just outside the door.

Fabulous ruins, snorkeling, deep sea diving, turtle watching, shopping, relaxing and lots of fun await you here. I look forward to hearing from you. Call or email with any questions.

Akumal: We are only a ten minute walk from the 'center' of Akumal. There are two small grocery stores, an Internet room that is very reasonable, a few shops and a laundry. There are also three very good restaurants here in the center. You can access Akumal beach from here. It's only about one hundred yards from the center. The snorkeling off this beach is really good. Akumal is always casual.

Things to Do: Shopping is very good in Tulum, which is only 15 minutes south, and in Playa del Carmen which is only 22 minutes north. Sightseeing is endless. You can take day trips to Tulum or Coba, or you can stay overnight at Chitze Itza or Merida. We recommend them all. There is an endless list of possible activities for you to enjoy in and around Akumal and all through the Mayan Riviera. There are PGA golf courses and world class diving spots. The fresh water cenotes are just beautiful and very refreshing. I have snorkeled many with our children. I prefer to have a guide direct us when we go the cenotes.

My Favorite Thing to Do: I love to walk the beach from in front of our apartment and then to the right. It is not completely sandy. It is covered with thousands of pieces of washed-up coral and small shells. I collect the most striking pieces of coral that I find. I have so many now, I can be very choosy. I will sit for hours there and just commune with the sea and nature. I am usually totally alone and for me, there is no other place where I feel so at one with the world.

Vacation Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our vacation and had a wonderful time. My husband, our two sons ages 6 and 9 and I spent a week in Akumal visiting the surrounding area. The condo was well cared for and beautifully furnished. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing atmosphere and would highly recommend it.

The condo/Akumal was in a perfect location, central to sight-seeing and unlike Playa del Carmen, much quieter. The restaurants in the area were all very good.

The kids loved swimming in the pool and snorkling at Akumal beach and the nearby lagoon. A highlight for them was swimming among the sea turtles that were passing through. They also loved Xel-Ha. My husband and I enjoyed visiting the Mayan ruines of Tulum and Coba (we recommend renting a bike near the entrance to Coba since it is very hot and the ruines are very spread out). On the return from Coba we stopped at the Grand Cenote to cool of and would recommend it. The kids enjoyed snorkling in the Cenote. They also enjoyed Xcarate. The night show was impressive. We rented a car and found it very easy to get around. Over all it was a very relaxing vacation and a great place to stay.

Fabulous Vacation - Condo was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family is still glowing from our fabulous stay at Mi Casa Del Mar B2! We so enjoyed spending Christmas and New Years at such a lovely place. Our family of 5 were impressed the moment we arrived to such a friendly staff willing to help us get settled. When we walked into the condo the view instantly took our breath away. The condo is much larger than it appears in the pictures. All the directions are there in a book that tells you about the beaches, restaurants, grocery stores and staff. We spent 7 days enjoying the area. We did have a car to get around, but it isn't necessary. Other the the view, the pool, and the spacious condo the other highlight was having a chef prepare a birthday celebration meal for our family. After spending a long day at the ruins in Coba and swimming in Cenotes we came home to an outstanding home cooked authentic Mayan meal which was delicious and very reasonably priced. It will be a night to remember for sure. Idea for future tenant is to help keep the area beautiful by picking up plastic on the beach in front of the condo complex. Our family was saddened to see the amount of plastic that washed up on the rocks. On New Year's Day the 5 of us spend one hour and picked up 12 bags of trash to be thrown out properly. It was sad to see a baby turtle carrying a red plastic bottle cap into its burrow. This was a way for us to give back to the wonderful beauty of the place and hope others follow suit.

Note that there isn't a traditional oven in the condo, only a stove top and a microwave. One of the chefs taught us how to cook chicken and fish in banana leaves not having an oven was no longer a problem. The other small problem was the tenants in other condos were quiet noisy at times. They did respect the 10:00 curfew though and we appreciated them quieting down. We will definitely recommend to others an hope to be back in the future. Thank you to Whaley's for sharing this amazing space!

This is a beautiful property right on the Caribbean. We've stayed here several times, and love it more each time. It's beautifully decorated. There's a great notebook telling you everything there is to do in the area. The condo is comfortable in every way.

It looks better in person than on the web. It's clean and serviced by a lovely local lady. The chap in charge, Roger, is a true delight. At your service. I've commended it to several friends. The restaurant/bar Oscar Y Lalo is our favorite. But here and many nice places to eat within a ten minute walk of the condo. You're gonna love this place!

Highly recommend staying!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing space to call home for a week! I would highly recommend staying there. This was a perfect condo for our group of four adults (two couples). We had more than enough room. This was our first time staying in a condo in Akumal, we have previously stayed at all-inclusives. As soon as we arrived we were absolutely thrilled with our decision to stay there. The view was breathtaking and we spent many hours on the patio enjoying the view! The condo is spacious and beautifully decorated. It was well equipped with everything we needed. The pictures do not reflect how lovely this place really is.

Before arriving Jane gave me the managers contact information. Roger responded to all my questions exceptionally fast. He helped set up transportation to and from the airport and we were able to arrange a stop at Wal-Mart for supplies on our way.

The staff, Roger, Alex, Epie and China were absolutely great and always ready to help with anything we needed. We cooked most of our breakfast and lunches and went out for dinners. Buena Vida, La Lunita, Turtle Bay Café and Quo Ondo were some of our favorites.

We experienced a temporary issue with some renovation work at a different unit that was completely out of the owner’s control. After letting Jane know about this, she was exceptionally gracious and remedied the situation immediately.

We will definitely be back in 2016 and will be referring our friends in Minnesota to stay there as well. Thank you Jane!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My two 20-something granddaughters and I have just returned from a 9-day stay at Mi Casa Del Mar in Akumal and are very pleased with our choice of accommodations. We loved Akumal and found the owner's tips on restaurants and grocery stores most helpful. Bought roasted chicken, as suggested....delicious! We particularly enjoyed these restaurants: La Lunita and Akumal Cafe. The location of the condo is ideal, mid-way between Half-Moon Bay and Turtle Bay. We loved walking every day to one or the other. The wonderful decor was a pleasure....beautiful antiques and/or reproductions. I loved the beaded jaguar heads so much that, at one of the local gift shops, I purchased a small one to bring home. And the soothing sound of the surf outside along with the ocean breezes made porch-sitting one of the best parts of the stay. I suggest posting a picture of the view from the porch....gorgeous! We traveled to see ruins at Coba and Tulum. Also snorkeled off the beach, seeing sea turtles at Turtle Bay. Perhaps the snorkeling off a boat, away from busy Turtle Bay, would have allowed for seeing more colorful fish. One recommendation: we went thinking we would have access to laundry facilities and did not feel comfortable asking China to do our laundry. This would never have been a deal-breaker for us, but we would have preferred to understand ahead of time that we would not be able to do our own laundry. Otherwise, we would definitely recommend this condo and a stay in Akumal to others. Many thanks to the owner and to the staff for a wonderful vacation.
