About Terry Lee Powell


I am an employee of Whole Foods and am so glad I was able to find a small place in Paradise. I have been traveling to Mexico since the early '80's and was able to find Akumal about 15 years ago... I was able to purchase the condo in Lasirena complex, on HalfMoon Bay, in Akumal, QuintanaRoo, Mexico. The area gives back what I need to replinish, to keep my sanity in a fast paced, hectic world.

You should visit the area, to replinish what has been taken from you.....Mayan Riviera, a truly beautiful place...

Terry Lee Powell purchased this condo in 2004

Why Terry Lee Powell chose Akumal

Beautiful, quiet, very low key area... Village resort, Area thrives from Tourism, paradise atmosphere and peaceful tranquility...

What makes this condo unique

ground floor, ocean front, 2 bedroom, 2bath, beautiful garden and largest pool in Akumal Just steps to the Carribean, Senior easy access.......

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at La Sirena #4. It's a beautiful place,

inside and out. We had the beach to ourselves most days, an added

bonus. We cooked all breakfasts and lunches, what a great kitchen!

On-site bike rental was awesome. We went to town daily to see the

turtles and to eat supper. Each night ended with a family movie,

another perk. Nancy kept the place spotless, a much appreciated perk.

I communicated with her using google translate as my Spanish is very

limited. She's a sweetie. We hope to return if some day. Thank you for

opening your place to us. Memories were made. It was a perfect trip.

Wonderful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I traveled to Mexico for Christmas, and we stayed in a number of different locations but this property was definitely our favorite. This is a beautiful area with a well equipped home that was comfortable and perfect for my family.

Beautiful beach front condo and gorgeous pool

  • 4 of 5

La Serena is a lovely, private condominium towards the very end of the most private and residential area of Akumal. The ground floor condos facing the beach benefit from large patios, ocean sights and sounds and being steps from lounge chairs and palapas.

All modern conveniences are included. Daily cleaning service included. A beautiful spot to vacation, snorkel, etc.

Los Altos, CA

perfect spot for some peace and quiet and awesome snorkling!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect place for a peaceful, relaxing vacation. My family and I just spent this last week at this condo and had such a great time we did not want to come home! I have 3 kids ages 20, 17 and 14. It's in a great location. Although Akumel public beach can get quite crowded with all visitors hoping to snorkel with turtles, this condo is located on the north end of Half Moon Bay, which is the opposite end of the bay from the touristy south part. We walked out the sliding glass door right onto the beach and into the crystal clear water. It was beautiful. The only thing that could have made this condo even better is if it has some paddle boards or kayaks to use. Yu Kal snorkeling lagoon is just 1/2 block away. I felt like I was snorkeling in an aquarium, so many beautiful fish to see right in the fresh water part and if you venture out even further into the salt water there are stingrays and turtles.

Great Condo but With Frustrations

  • 4 of 5

Stay- Dec 1 to 6, 2017.


Peaceful location.

Condo is spacious/clean.

Beds comfy.

Furniture “Mex comfort” but lots of cushions helped.

A/C units throughout.

Kitchen, great size, well stocked. Lots of small appliances Coffee-maker awesome with own cup dispenser. Lots of coffee/tea stocked. Free bottled water, free re-fills on request. Gas stove.

Toilets flush well. No hand-held shwrheads as in ad pic, but good pressure.

Big LCD TV in lvg area.

Natural light thru-out condo. Bonus mstr bdrm glass wall to living room, can be curtained off for privacy. Very nice feature.

WiFi good, even on beach.

Patio has access to beach less than 50’. Nice beach chairs, shade palapas, gorgeous view across bay & ocean. Nice patio chairs/table.

Rarely anyone on beach. No noise from neighbors.

Pool in lush inner courtyard w shade, 80’ from condo front door. Rarely anyone in pool. Landscaping immaculate.


A/C leaking on arrival, 8’ pool of water on the lvgrm floor/rug. Crtkr repaired immediately. Arrival info hurried/brief.

Problem operating safes, no instructns. Jammed later.

Evening of arrival, settled in, wanted shwr, no hot water, 8:30 pm. Problems locating people to help incldg owner. Long waits for replies, mostly no replies.

Owner says “WE RECYCLE”, caretaker said no. Found drop-box down road.

Blender no work, notified Terry, no reply.

DVD player no work. LOTS of movies, couldn’t watch. Terry replied “Thank-you”.

3x to rent bikes but no one there. Couldn't rent.

2nd last day, no water at all. Check-out next am problematic. Poor responses again, Mgmt co. crtkr & Terry. Offered other suite then water came on.

Ocean in front, rocky/shallow/dead coral/sea urchins. Shoes a must. When choppy, (most of stay) not pleasant to snorkel. Snorkeling in front average.

Communication frustrating. Always had to get back to someone creates stress. Terry did apologize 2x but only for water issues (out of his control.)

Asked Terry what “Depart & Maint Fee” covers, no reply. 5 nights fees & tx only- approx $400 CND.

Later, owner communicated “This was their second home, not a hotel, does not have 5-star concierge” (which we knew). We did expect mgmt to be more responsive to water issues. Had owner been there they would expect same.

Owner offered to compensate us but told us we must post review first.

All tolled, we really did enjoy the accommodation. One of the nicest based on the unit itself.

Owner's Response: thank you lori bruneau for your thorough review. please sign your name to it.... There was a water main pipe issue, again out of my control. i will be compensating you, so sorry... ac unit fixed quickly once it was discovered.. we have daily staff on the grounds.. not staffed from 6 pm till 9: a.m in the morning. maintenance and departure fee.. is for daily maid service, which you didnt want.. thats issued by mexican government.. , its part of their rental license rules... you wanted no mId for 7 days other than someone to take the trash out. by the way we do recycle into our larger bins, in our designated garbage area. so trash was the way, our rates are compatible for the area. im not sure why im being blamed for the canadian, u.s. mexican pesos exchange. had i been there for the water mishap instead of you would have taken just as long to fix didnt know we had the problem with a couple of the dvd', the blender.. if i dont have a blender .. i shake mine all said, thank you so much for your review.. we are glad you enjoyed your stay. thank you. Again, terry also you failed to mention the discount you were given prior to you renting the condo, because the dates were usually available.. we also asks if we could offer new dates for free at your leisure, but you werent coming back to akumal.. just wanted in all fairness to give our readers that info... thanks terry

Excellent property on beautiful Half Moon Bay

  • 5 of 5

Perfect condo in the perfect place! We absolutely loved this rental and spent a wonderful week here. We have 2 almost adult children, the condo was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. We rented bikes at the front office and used those to get into town for groceries etc. Listing description is accurate, great customer service - Terry is quick to respond and helpful with questions. We would highly recommend this property. We snorkeled in Yal-Ku ( walking distance) and would recommend that - get there early. But the snorkeling in the bay out our back door was excellent. You will want water shoes. Thanks for a wonderful week!

Fabulous, relaxing, and perfect

  • 5 of 5

we absolutely loved the property. the pictures do not do the condo justice and the property is perfect. snorkeling was outside the door, and if that wasn't enough the famous Yalko Lagoon was just 2 blocks away for world class snorkeling. we spent a lot of time on the porch enjoying the sea breeze and watching the goings on of the local birds, lizards other interesting creatures. the only negative for us is being older we should have rented a car since going to diner could be a bit of a walk. we hope to return, 5 days was not enough. the owner Terri was great with calling me personally and making sure all our needs were met and our questions answered. would recommend in a heartbeat.
