Studio close to white sandy beach in Akumal
Situated in the center of Half Moon Bay this studio has the white sandy beach, and a natural aquarium waiting just for you. The Casita is conveniently located on the garden area of Luna Azul Condos, just a few steps away from great snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, diving or just relaxing on the palapas! With 2 queen sized beds, sleeps 4. The unit is clean and comfortable with satellite television, a private bath, and well equipped kitchen area that includes microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, stove-top, coffee maker, and breakfast bar, as well as WIFI and free parking for guests right in front of the condo.
Half Moon Bay is a very magical, relaxing and fantastic place that will let you experience one of the most amazing gifts from nature, which is to be able to see the nesting of female turtles and the hatching of their babies. You can see a turtle lay its eggs and bury them and on the same night you can see a nest hatch right in front of you… an experience of a life time!! And all these can be witnessed just a few steps from my condo.
Casita Norte has a great central location, within walking distance you can find Akumal's Yal-Ku Lagoon... simply put a heaven for snorkeling! You can see turtles, parrot fishes, rays, and fascinating marine life. A unique place where the clear and salty water of the Caribbean Ocean meets with the fresh water of the Lagoon Yal-ku.
Conveniently located just a few steps away from La Buena Vida restaurant, a walking distance beach and five restaurants nearby makes this condo one of the most demanded properties for vacation in Akumal. Stay here and reconnect with nature by doing it all or doing nothing at all!
Bookings have been coming in fast! Email me now to guarantee your reservation at this beautiful spot in the Caribbean! I’m always looking forward to hosting great people.

This was our first visit to Akumal and Mexico, so we have nothing to compare with. Casita Norte was cozy, and we had quick easy access to the beach. Being on the ground floor and close to the road and main entrance to the condos, we were reluctant to have the curtains and doors open, so felt somewhat closed in. Air conditioning worked well. Maid service was good, and they refreshed the linens regularly during the week. Staff at the condominium were friendly and helpful. Parking was easy and close to the unit. Furnishings and decor were quite modest, no real sitting area other than bed. We didn't use the closets as there was a musty smell we didn't want transferred to our clothing. We did not swim directly in front of the condos as there was quite a build up of seaweed during the week we were there. Staff worked diligently to clear it away. Great proximity to some good restaurants. Access to the main beach in Akumal costs 100 pesos per person, but is worth visiting if you like to snorkel. The reef is in great shape there. Lagoon is also worth visiting if you like to snorkel. Overall, we felt Casita Norte was good value for what we paid. Owner was prompt with communications and provided good information.
Nice Stay in Akumal
Property is small, clean, convenient, and much less expensive than adjacent properties. It's not fancy, but it was very nice to have a fridge and water supply; we didn't really use the kitchen. Just steps to Half Moon bay with great snorkeling off the rocky shore (bring water shoes). Didn't see turtles in this bay, but saw them in Akumal bay -- walk down the town beach far enough and you don't have to pay a fee or use a guide. About a mile distance to town. Convenience store just down the street and a couple of great restaurants nearby. It was wonderful to have decent Wifi and Netflix available for the evenings. Small safe in the room and plenty of hot water for showers.
Cute has everything we need
Such a great neighborhood. La buena vida was one of the highlights of staying here. The condo is clean and has everyThing we need
Great Akumal Accomodations
We have stayed in many Casita's in Akumal, this is always one of our favorites. Clean, comfortable and everything we need. Staff is always very friendly and willing to help.
Cozy Casita in Paradise
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Akumal at Casita Norte. The staff was great, super friendly and helpful. They took care of an AC issue in the morning just as promised. We slept the first night without it unfortunately but they brought us an extra oscillating fan so it wasn't so bad. There is a great little cosina, coffee maker, water bottle. Bed was firm and actually I didn't wake up with back pain like I do at home. :) Proximity to the beach is awesome. You're steps away. It is in front of a 3 story condo building and we were not bothered by noise at all. For entertainment you have a flat screen TV with Roku that has Netflix, YouTube and others so you can find something if you're bored or want music. The beach is very well maintained and the area is gorgeous of course. There are several decent restaurants along the bay. My only negative would be that there was a slight mold smell when entering the casita but honestly you don't notice it once you're there for a moment. Not a big deal to us. All in all, we totally recommend Berenice's little Casita Norte as well as Akumal and would rent there again. It is about 20 minutes to Tulum and about 30 minutes to PDC. Not much to do in Akumal pueblo and the nearest petrol is 5-10 south towards Tulum so plan accordingly.
Oh, the bed....
There are so many things to love about Casita Norte - the location (nothing is better than Akumal), the proximity to the beach and great food (Buena Vida, Lol Ha and Cueva del Pescador were all amazing!) and great swimming (Yal Ku Cenote blew our minds away). The size of this unit is small, but that didn't bother us. We loved having access to Netflix so we could catch up on some movies during our downtime.
I really only wanted to use this unit for two things - to shower and to sleep. The shower worked well. The bed, on the other hand, was not for us. It was hard as a rock with very thin pillows. On the second night, I woke up at 2:30 hoping the night was over. My back and shoulder were killing me. I seriously contemplated going out to the beach to finish the night.
If this unit had a good bed and pillows, this would be a great find, but with the current bed, I could not recommend it.
