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.

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.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in a perfect location on half moon bay and a couple blocks from the lagoon. We did snorkel at the lagoon, but we liked the snorkeling right out in front of the condo. Bring booties, the rocks can be sharp out there. The condo itself was perfect. We brought our children who are 15 and 20. Big, spacious, everything we needed was there. The complex manager was the sweet,est guy and helped with anything you need. The cleaning staff was awesome. We rented bikes right there from the condo complex and rode back and forth to the Akumal bay for daily adventures. The restaurants up and down that road were spectacular, friendly and with the very best ocean views. Akumal is our favorite place to be and this condo was an added bonus to our stay. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you so much Terry!!!

Sweet Place, Nice Base for Riviera Maya Fun

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed La Sirena #4. We are at the time of the stay a couple with a 14-year old daughter. The description and pictures are very accurate and give a great idea of the condo layout and features. Everything worked well--Canadian satellite TV, air conditioning and blender most importantly. We spent more time in the pool than expected, as it was really pleasant there. We also snorkeled off the beach and around the corner at Yal-Ku Lagoon. We loved La Buena Vida restaurant on the other side of Half Moon Bay, which had a menu very friendly for our vegan girl. An appropriate request of the mariachi is Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash. The best beer we found was Mondo Maya (from Playa) served in one liter bottles at La Buena Vida. We also enjoyed a meal at Lol-Ha.

Our tips include bring surf shoes. Grab some groceries on the way (we stopped at WalMart in Playa. Very cheap bakery there). The air conditioning is solid and the place tight and it keeps the house cool for hours after you turn it off. For take-home good tequila your options are Viva Zapata in Tulum or a couple of places on 5th Avenue in Playa. The unit came with a 5-gallon drinking water bottle. Staff would have replaced it with a new one had we needed replenishment.

La Sirena has around 12 or so condos in the three story building on the beach and four standalone homes around the pool gardens. 2 sets of 3 steps up. The whole place was less than half occupied in mid-summer, and we often had the beach alone. Security Alfredo oversees the complex during the day and police stay near the condo entrance at the junction to Yal-Ku Lagoon during the evenings. The housekeeper tailored cleaning to our schedule and requests (for example, towels, trash and recycling, or one day with a more thorough clean). The condo was very clean on arrival. Wi-fi was outstanding. We caught an arm of Hurricane Earl (landfall in Belize) on our last night. A crew came by and cleared anything that could be windblown from outside and furniture from the sunken living room. Power dropped twice briefly, which was better than we expected at the level of storm.

Terry is a thoughtful, communicative host.

Paradise. Great location, amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has a great location close to Yal ku lagoon, walking distance to cozy restaurants. Not for typical tourism, no clubs, no noise, no crowds. Kitchen is perfectly equipped, overall the apartment is very clean, charming and it has wonderful views. If you want to relax and be with nature (turtles, stingrays, all sorts of fish and iguanas) this is the paradise.

The beach is amazing though you have to be careful with hedgehogs, be sure wearing water shoes, great place for snorkeling.

Discovered Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had in Akumal at the condo. Everything a vacationer could want. Full amenities, kitchen, and beach. We were content to stay on the patio, converse, read, and enjoy the waves and beach. We discovered Paradise and can not wait to return. I recommend Terry and Randy's place to all. We will be back!
