About the property

2BR/2BA Ocean Front Condo in Quiet but Convenient North Akumal - Paradise

Come enjoy the quiet side of the Riviera Maya at Casa Q our updated 2BR/2BA condo on the North end of Half Moon Bay in Akumal. The ocean is right out your front door with beach chairs and palapas and a walkway right onto the reef protected Half Moon Bay. If fresh water is what you desire there is a lovely ocean front plunge pool right outside our front door or you can sit and read a book beside the Garden pool surrounded by lush gardens carefully tended by the meticulous and dedicated staff.

Casa Q has 2 King Bedrooms both of which have comfy mattresses, fret linens, AC and great cross breezes as well as views of the Bay without getting out of bed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with en-suite access with one also having access from the main condo living area. The condo is on the first floor so there are no stairs to climb.

While there are many good places to eat in Akumal and the surrounding area, should you wish to cook, the Kitchen has been updated with everything you need to cook a great meal including quality cookware and all of the gadgets you need to cook a simple breakfast to a gourmet meal. The kitchen was recently updated with new Coastal Cottage Cabinets, a double apron front farm sink and butcher block counters. Coffee, juice and milk are provided upon arrival. We also keep the kitchen stocked with cooking basics such as flour, sugar, spices and cooking oils.

With the ocean and pools you may never want to leave Casa Q but when you do you are walking distance to World Famous Yal Ku Lagoon for great snorkeling. For the more seasoned snorkeler Half Moon Bay is a treat though the current, wave action and shallowness of the reef make it less suitable for beginners. And for those that want to swim or snorkel with sea turtles, Casa Q is just 1.5km from Akumal Bay by foot, bike, golf cart or car.

Restaurants close by include Que Onda (Home Made Pasta) , La Lunita (Barefoot feet in the sand fine dining), La Buena Vida (Great food and a beach bar with swings for stools). In town are also Turlte Bay Cafe and Bakery (Great Stickey Buns), Lol Ha, Cueva de Pescaador, Imeldas and the Loncheria Akumalito

We are also 10 minutes to the pueblo of Chemuyil, 15 minutes from Puerto Aventuras, 20 minutes from the Ruins at Tulum and 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen. The Cancun International Airport is just 75 minutes away and there are several options for transfers. Just ask.

Daily housekeeping is included in your rate as is the use of 2 Wilderness Systems Sit-On-Top Sea Kayaks.

About Bruce Pumphrey & Susan Chrest

Why Bruce Pumphrey & Susan Chrest chose Quintana Roo

As our home for 6 months of the year, we want our guests to feel just as at home. It is equipped as a home with quality cookware and linens. We want you to feel at home in our home.

What makes this condo unique

We are in the quiet north side of Akumal. With the reef right out front and Yal Ku just a short walk away, we are a snorkelers dream. Restaurants are a short walk as well but we are just 20 minutes to Tulum and 30 minutes to Playa del Carmen. Accessible, peaceful, tranquil, beautiful and comfortabl is how I would describe Casa Q.

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at Casa Q! Akumal was amazing!! The beaches, restaurants, and most importantly the people of Akumal were beyond our expectations. We cannot wait to come back. La Iguana, Casa Q is a gen. The condo is perfect. After fun days it was great to come home to a home. It has everything you need. See you soon!!

3/12-22, 2017 Great Time at Casa Q

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Q. As everyone mentioned the beds were very comfortable and Hector was most accommodating and Andrea cleaned as expected. We tried the bikes for maybe 2 days and weren't comfortable because of the rocky roads and the distance into Akumal Bay so we rented a golf cart. It was great to have since we didn't have a car. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because the water pressure was so low and you really didn't get much hot water. The other frustrating thing was the TV (husband is a junky) buffering a lot and having a difficult time figuring it out. But who needs TV when you're in paradise. Enjoyed meeting other families. Husband said the best part of vacation was the dining. It didn't seem to matter where we ate, we had great food and very inexpensive. The ceviche misto at Lol-Ha was exceptional (ate there twice) and the BBQ Chicken Sandwich at Turtle Bay was the tops. Terrific Andulasian Fritters at La Lunita where we ate 3 times. Also enjoyed La Buena Vida twice (good breakfast). The Eggplant Parmesan and Argula Salad at Que Onda was good. Unfortanately, didn't get a chance to enjoy Sunday Taco night there. Can't say much for Cueva Pescadore and didn't get to dine at Taverna. One family gave us a 12 pack of beer, leftover Jack Daniels, vodka, tequila and wine which we ended up passing on to a new group of people the day before we left. It started a party since they were all from Canada. Bruce's recommendation about USA Transfers was spot on. Very responsive as was Bruce when we had problems with the safe. The pictures on the web site are exactly as it appears. Many thanks to Bruce and Sue for opening up your home to us. It was most relaxing. Cindy and Larry, Nellysford, VA

Owner's Response: Hey Cindy Sorry about the issues with the water pressure. I wish I had known during your stay so I could get the staff to address it. The shower heads tend to get clogged and need to be treated or switched out every few months. We've fixed it so hopefully there will be no future problems. Glad you otherwise enjoyed your stay.

A little piece of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 2 couples stayed here for 8 nights in mid January and absolutely loved it. It's a quiet area but also has quite a few great restaurants within walking distance. Step out the back door and you have great snorkeling within steps. You can also walk around the point and within 10 minutes be able to snorkel Yal-Ku lagoon without having to go to the entrance, just come out the way you came in. The people here are so friendly and go out of their way to make your stay wonderful. We did have a few issues with the bikes but it was cleared up quickly and they were an absolute must since we opted to not rent a car. We would definitely stay here again if the opportunity presents itself. Bruce and Susan have a wonderful property that truly gave us an amazing vacation. Thanks so much.

Beyond our wildest dreams!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this trip worked out magically. Confusion about arrival and a rather hazardous car rental experience were really the only amenable moments in a magical trip. The condo confusion was of no impact on our trip and, while human moments happen to all of us, Bruce and Sue were the perfect hosts and their casa is so tranquil! The rental, well, we just wont rent from and learn.

So many highlights on this adventure. I mean, who gets to scuba with barracuda between morning cups of joe:). We toured Tullum and Chichen Itza, and they were as stunning as everyone reports....and, true, go early! Honestly, walking and biking in and out of Akumal is such sweet meditation, I'd do it all day. I turned 50 with my favorite people in my favorite place doing my favorite stuff. I'm so very grateful!

Wonderful trip in Akumal!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here in Akumal! We travelled with another couple and found our stay to be very comfortable and quiet. My husband and I are not exploratory with food, however our friends got us to step out of our food comfort zone and boy are we glad we did!!! We ate out almost every meal!! The local restaurants listed in Bruce's booklet were amazing!! I think we tried them all! We loved to lagoon that was close by along with the other quiet beaches that we drove to for the day. There are loads of close things to do, but we really loved relaxing at the house.
