|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Located in Aventuras Akumal, 2.7 miles south from Akumal Bay, U-Nah-Kin (sun's house in Mayan) is a 4 condo building placed just in front of one of the most beautiful beaches in Akumal's area. This white sandy beach is also one of the most visited by the turtles in the nesting season.
With 2 bedrooms and one futon in the living area, this condo can accommodate from 1 to 5 guests. Both bedrooms have windows facing the ocean side, so you will be able to enjoy the breeze in every corner of the condo. The condo is fully equipped: Air conditioned bedrooms, Internet connection and satellite TV included, Kayak, Hammock, BBQ grill, Etc.
Akumal Mexico is a small resort community with spectacular sandy white beaches, swaying palms and sun. Nonetheless it is a small village, it counts with all kind of services. Has long been a secret getaway, discovered only by those who dared to travel down the coastline in search of adventure. If you like snorkeling, you will find superb spots everywhere.
With more than 17 years coming every year to Akumal and 9 years living here, her love and knowledge of this place make her an excellent and creditable travel adviser. Wilma has also a strong willing to help other people to get the best of their vacation time.
U-nah-Kin:The perfect beach spot!

The place is awesome! Fabulous beach, great apartment and lovely staff. We were looking for a quiet beach place, away from crowded spots on macro-resorts, and definitely, this is was the perfect choice.
We saw sea turtles when snorkeling near our front door. Later, in the night, one of them came out to the beach and buried its eggs in the sand. We'll never forget this amazing experience!!!
Unlike most other condos in the area, this one has coconut trees for shade in the front, and lots of sand. The condo is cleaned outside and in daily, well equipped, we needed for nothing. Would definitely recommend!
If you are looking for a quiet location right on a lovely, white sand beach, you should definitely consider the condo in Aventuras Akumal. The property is not fancy but it's very clean, functional and well stocked. The beds are very comfortable, the view from the deck and living area is beautiful. There are nice lounges on the beach that you will enjoy under the palm trees or in the sun. The condo is probably best suited for a couple or a family, as it is necessary to go through the first bedroom to get to the second- although it is possible to get to the far bedroom by going out the front door and entering through a side door. I was concerned that it would be difficult to locate the condo at night. However, the directions provided were excellent and by going slowly the last 500 meters, we easily found the gravel road. The condo is about 1:15 from the airport. We found the drive to be easy and never encountered any problems driving in the area. There is a little bar/restaurant just a few houses down the beach but it was just ok. In the actual town of Akumal, about 3 miles north, we ate at La Lunita, a fantastic and reasonably priced restaurant on the bay. Try it! There is a super market in Piuerto Abenruras, about 15 minutes north. It was adequate with some excellent fresh fish. Larger super markets are available in Playa Del Carmen, but there was too much commotion around there and we just drove on to the serene beach of Aventuras Akumal. During our stay we toured the ruins at Talum and Coba and thoroughly enjoyed our swim in one of the many cenotes in the area. We snorkeled in the lagoon at Akumal, but were a bit disappointed by the crowds and mediocre visibility in the water. There were many other activities we could have done, but we were very content right on the beach in front of the condo.
Petite maison très confortable avec tout le nécessaire pour passer un très agréable séjour dans un emplacement parfait! La plage est très belle et très propre. Nous avons eu la chance de voir les bébés tortues se rendre à la mer, nous avons fait de la plongée tuba et de kayak, le tout à partir de la maison, c'était génial!
The condo was a great location for our vacation. It was first time for us in Mexico so I can only talk from this point of view. We loved the most the position - right on the beach. There are beach chairs and shadow from the coconut trees in front of the building. It’s a great place to relax, read a book, and go for a refreshing swim. Because of the winds, for the period of our stay, the waves were relatively strong. So we needed to be very careful with our child (8 years old), we went only together in water since the currents felt strong. But at the same time it is fun with waves.
The property is in good shape, the condos have nice layouts since all 4 condos have ocean view, but you have to go through one bedroom to reach the main bedroom (it wasn't a problem for us). It is well maintained, the gardener and the cleaning lady come every day with the exception of Sundays.
The owners were quick in responding our needs. We emailed them a few times for different reasons and got the necessary help.
We had a car rental, bought some food at Walmart in Playa del Carmen in our way from airport and ate out for lunch every day in different places (one of the next buildings has a little restaurant on the beach if you don’t feel like driving one day). We visited the village of Akumal where we did some snorkeling (with the help of the life jackets from the condo) and saw turtles, Xcacel and the cenote there and the ruins from Coba.
We would definitely come back.
My family with 2 kids (10 and 13) spent 8 days in this lovely condo. The condo was on a very beautiful beach and the terrace view is priceless. The condo is kept very clean and there are plenty of dishes, utensils, etc. There is no oven, but who wants to bake on vacation. The toaster oven, BBQ, stove tops and microwaves is plenty. There is hammock you can hang in any of the rooms or the terrace. There are beach towels, and life vests for 4. Deysi, the housekeeper and Ismael (?) the gardener do a fantastic job. Every day they clean inside and out, change towels, replenish the drinking water, paper towels, etc. This was better than our experience in other places. Also,I mentioned to Wilma that the shower was not draining properly and she immediately got someone to fix it.
One thing to note - to get to the master bedroom you have to go either through the second bedroom or go out of the condo and enter directly in the master bedroom. Also, you cannot lock the master bedroom from the inside, so privacy may be an issue. This was not a big issue for us, but maybe important to others. The road from the main road to the condo is quite bumpy, so you have to drive slow and careful. We were with a regular car (not a jeep), and we were ok. Internet was very good inside, but unfortunately none on the terrace.
We really enjoyed the location - just a few minutes to snorkeling with turtles in Akumal, or the fish in Yal Ku or Half Moon bay, also close to Tulum, Xel Ha and many cenotes. We would rent here again and recommend it highly. Thank you very much, Wilma!
Just back from a 10 nights at Unakin. A delightful and well maintained condo in an uncrowded spot with lovely swimming and snorkelling directly offshore.
We spent the first half of our holiday actively, looking around various sights; Coba, Chichin Itza and various beautiful cenotes around Tulum and Akumal.
We had planned on spending the last 4 or 5 days taking it easy, reading and lazing on the loungers outside and having lazy lunches on our little balcony. However these hopes were dashed when the previous quiet and considerate tenants were replaced with a large family/extended family who took over 3 out of the 4 condo complex (and another nearby). The beach outside was overtaken by a multitude of children, teens, adults and beach paraphernalia and this seemed to be the central meeting point.
There was little chance of continuing the peaceful and intimate family time we had enjoyed up to that point so we took ourselves off again in the mornings and took refuge on the quieter beach next door in the afternoons.
Tranquil sandy beaches, reefs, cavern and cave diving, snorkeling, sailing and fishing, Mayan archeological areas.
