About the property

Spacious 2 Bedroom/2 Bath, Seconds To A Private Beach

Come stay in this spacious 2bed/2bath condo, 60 seconds from the sands of the Caribbean. Just remodeled, every space is new, modern and fresh.

Condo is at the north end of Half Moon Bay in a garden setting, with 2 pools and a private beach area. Be on the beach, with your morning coffee, in 60 seconds. Forgot your sunglasses, book or need more coffee? No problem, a quick walk back to the condo and you are set. Snorkel from the beach out front; the bay is full of colorful fish, turtles, urchins, rays and more.

Daily maid service, drinking water, towels, soaps, and shampoos are included. We have a few movies and books and are adding more on each trip. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for an afternoon snack or a full dinner.

Akumal is a quiet, friendly and peaceful place. Several good restaurants and small stores for last minute needs. We have a few souvenir shops and even a spa. Yal-Ku Lagoon is just 2 blocks away and offers a day of crystal clear snorkeling and swimming. There are also golf courses, dive shops and day trips to fish, dive or swim in fresh water caverns, called cenotes. Or of course, you can relax in the shade of a palapa while the gentle waves wash ashore and take your cares and stress out to sea.

Centrally located between Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. About 20 miles south, you can visit the beautiful ruins of Tulum, and many beach bars and restaurants. And 25 miles north, in Playa Del Carmen, you can find as much nightlife as you like, familiar stores, and the famous Fifth Avenue.

I invite you to be refreshed. Slow down and stroll along the shore. Enjoy a simple and relaxed way of life, where the days are long, the sun is warm and the nights are restful. It’s easy to get used to.

About Rhonda

I first visited Quintana Roo in 1992. Since then I have longed to visit and own my own place there. It's a dream come true.

Rhonda purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rhonda chose Akumal

Akumal is so quaint, a little off the beaten path with such sweet and helpful people.

What makes this condo unique

This unit offered a sense of home and privacy, while still having the white sand and blue water right up the sidewalk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great place you have provided for our stay! We love the location, proximity to Que Ondo, and private. quiet feel. Our children enjoyed the courtyard pool and iguanas. Only a short excursion into main square and Akumal beach. Will recommend your place to others and likely return ourselves when visiting Akumal.

Much Thanks,

The Thompsons

Beautiful property and well maintained in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This small town of Akumal is wonderful. Every restaurant was delicious and reasonably priced. The amenities were wonderful. The house is in beautiful condition with private parking and very very quiet. We loved the snorkeling in Half Moon Bay and the weather was perfect. I highly recommend this property. Rhonda responded quickly with questions and the staff was amazing

This place is very nice and the location is perfect. Nice quiet location away from all of the typical tourist commotion. Very clean and modern. Highly recommended!! Stayed here 10 days and would love to stay longer. We'll more than likely book again with our family. Thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home with us.

Birthday Trip

  • 5 of 5

We spent five wonderful nights here. Rhonda was very accommodating. Her directions were precise! The place was beautiful. Daily maid service was unexpected and an added bonus! Condo was stocked with everything we needed and then some. Beach area was so pretty and private. Can't say enough about this quaint private community. Do yourselves a favor and check out the local restaurants. We rented bicycles and explored all there was to offer for $6 a day! We truly fell in love with this little are. So much so, that we ended up purchasing a casita there of our own. We can't thank Rhonda enough for such a memorable trip.

Beautiful condo!

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay in Rhonda's condo at La Iguana. It was comfortable, spacious, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was especially nice - plenty of space to eat and prepare food, and a nice layout. Rhonda was accessible and helpful when we had a couple of issues with wireless and water. The wireless issue was resolved quickly. The water issue was actually a problem with the Akumal water supply. Hector, the property manager, was quick to get working on it and it was resolved without much hassle. He was also helpful to us with recommendations in Akumal. The property was pretty and well-maintained, with two pools. It's also walking distance to Yal-Ku Lagoon, which is a wonderful snorkeling area. We appreciated the snorkels and beach towels that Rhonda provided!

One thing to note about this property is that it does not have access to a true beachfront where you can walk into the surf. The beach area is really nice, with lounges, tables, and umbrellas, along with a pool that overlooks the area and a shower to rinse off. It bumps up against a rocky area at the shore, though. This area is also very pretty and fun to check out. We saw sea urchins tucked into the rocks. The entire north third or so of Half Moon Bay has rocky shoreline like this. The entire area is gorgeous and peaceful. Just keep in mind that you'll want to go to another part of Half Moon Bay or Akumal Beach if you want to play in the surf.

Nice, clean place, beautiful surroundings ~ water is a bit treacherous

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Rhonda's place for a week and loved the quiet, clean space. The beach is gorgeous, and there's plenty of lounge seating with great views. Really nice that the pool is right there, for when you want a quick dip to cool off.

However, the location is at the north end of the bay where the coral reef comes right up to the shore. Even with water shoes (which are a must here) the water is difficult to navigate -- very shallow even at high tide, and you have to step very carefully to avoid sharp rocks, coral and sea urchins. One of us, even while wearing water shoes, got a urchin spike in the foot that was painful and hard to remove. Each day, after lounging on the sand, we walked about 1/3 mile down the beach in order to swim in deeper waters and do a little snorkeling, where the bottom is rocky but not dangerous.

The staff were helpful, friendly and checked in on us regularly. We liked that we were at the quiet end of Akumal, but close enough to walk to the mini supers and the Buena Vida for drinks & light dinner. We had a great Xmas Eve dinner at the Tavern right near the arch in Akumal -- delicious Italian food and a very sweet staff.

Small complaints: We needed more kitchen & bathroom towels and the hot water was unpredictable.

Thanks for a nice place to stay, Rhonda.

Lovely condo in quiet, low key building

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo is decorated in nice, modern furniture. The beds were comfortable and bedrooms spacious. Kitchen was fully outfitted with all the equipment we needed. The property managers on site were very friendly and helpful. The property has a walled in area with sand atop a rocky beach, which made for a safe area for our 5-year-old to play and easy access to snorkeling in the bay. Rock shoes (which you can buy at the local grocery store) were very useful when paired with the snorkeling equipment from the condo (provided for free). We enjoyed walking to nearby restaurants and driving to Tulum and Coba for the day.
