Overview

Akumal Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Lovely studio apartment with its own private garden and courtyard. This unit is located on the street side of Luna Azul Condominiums, but has its own private courtyard and entrance which makes it very quiet and secluded, with the beach just a few yards away. This unit has a fully stocked kitchenette, daily maid service, and private bath. Incredible snorkeling awaits outside your front door in Half Moon Bay.

Ancient Mayan Ruins, jungle trekking, and deep sea fishing is available as well as Yal Ku Lagoon. Come swim with the sea turtles and see what the Mexican Caribbean has to offer. Akumal is the perfect place to get-away from it all, without having to sacrifice any needed amenities.

This casita is perfect for budget minded students, divers, or couples.

Additional larger properties (1-2 bedroom condos, and villas) available upon request.

Great little place

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little casita! Tucked away at ground level, no view but steps from the beach. The casita stays surprisingly cool throughout the day with the a/c on at night but off during the day while I was out. Clean and tidy, had everything I needed. Always felt safe and loved all the animals around. Got home one evening to find a coatimundi sitting in the flower bed of the patio, so cute. The beach and water has a lot of sargassum (as does much of the Caribbean these days) but the north end of the bay was clear and great for swimming or snorkeling. I would return to stay here! Loved dinners at La Buena Vida nearby. Great food and drinks!!

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!!!!! PERFECT GETAWAY!!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived, everything was great. The room was immaculate. Fresh towels, ice in the freezer, reliable wifi for FaceTime. The staff was amiable and helpful. The location cannot be beat. Close to all the restaurants you can need and a nice private patio for when you need refuge from the sun. My wife and I will absolutely return again and again.

Blue Moon, you put a dream in my heart

  • 4 of 5

Very nice casita, steps from Half Moon Bay. The private courtyard is very nice for meals and hanging out, and you can hear the waves crashing outside in the bay. The bay area is nice, has lounge chairs and plenty of shade under tiki style areas, beach towels are supplied and changed out daily. Be careful entering the bay, there are a lot of rocks/coral as you enter, but the swimming is awesome. The neighbors are very nice and some of them live here nearly year-round. It is very quiet, and even though this is a ground floor unit- you do not hear anyone walking around above. The bed is large and comfy and kitchen is just the right size. There is daily maid service included. Akumal is a nice, laid back little place, definitely a great place to chill. We rented bikes from Juan at the management company, and that is a great way to get around, and you can easily store them in the courtyard as it has a locked door. We would definitely return again!

Great Place, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 6 nights in this lovely casita. We loved everything about it, everything we needed was there, coffee pot, microwave, full size fridge and more. It has been lovingly decorated with many Mexican artifacts and pictures. The bed was comfortable and had very nice quality sheets and pillows. This rental is in a great location, steps from the beach and within walking distance to some small stores. While there we went snorkeling at Yal Ku, swam at a couple of cenotes and had great meals at La Buena Vida and Lol Ha. I especially recommend the shrimp that are wrapped in bacon and stuffed with cheese at Lol Ha, yummy! We spent most of our beach time in front of Lol Ha, the water was amazing and it was nice to have food and drink right there.

The beach in front of the casita has a few rocks upon entering so you may need water shoes, however every morning we would take our coffee and sit at a beachfront table and watch the sea turtles feeding, it was an amazing experience! The beach was full of turtle nest and we were lucky enough to watch a mother turtle come up and lay eggs while were there.

The owner is wonderfully responsive to emails and patiently answered all our questions. The staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed everything about our stay and have already told all of our friends. This is a great place to stay at a great price and we are planning on returning next month.

Great place right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. Spacious bed, very nicely decorated room and bathroom, clean, drinking water provided, peaceful neighbourhood with lush trees and plants. Unlike the previous reviewer, we didn't have any problems with wi-fi; it is not available in the casita itself though, you have to go to the beach palapa. The staff were wonderful: the receptionist patiently answered all our questions, gave useful guidance and really tried to be helpful. A few tips I'd like to give: when you go into the water at the condo beach, it's all rather sharp rocks, so a pair of aqua shoes would be very useful; there are a few places to eat nearby, but neither is open for breakfast (there are cafes that serve breakfast in downtown Akumal, but it's a rather long walk from the condo - about 20-30 minutes); the grocery stores and supermarkets in Akumal have a very poor product range and are overpriced, so if you can, buy your food in Playa del Carmen on your way to Akumal. From Luna Azul you can easily walk to Yal-ku lagoon (about 15-20 minutes). However, if you want to explore the surroundings and catch a collectivo on the highway, the walk from the condo to the highway will be a bit too long (30 minutes minimum).

Oh My God!!!! Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

More than we imagined!! Very neat and clean; the staff was absolutely wonderful and helpful. Met a local expatriate and he showed us around and took us to many places too. Akumal has many eateries withing walking distance; the beaches are beautiful and swimming with the turtles was awesome!! Many things to do close by or do nothing!! My only complaint was the lack of wifi - but it was simply the best vacation ever! I will definitely be back - thanks Marjean for the wonderful place in paradise!!
