Overview

Quintana Roo Condo Rental Photos and Description

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 Quintana Roo

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

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.

Fabulous place with great terrace, nice pool and easy ocean access

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family loved this place, the town and Riviera Maya. The condo was spacious with ceiling fans in all rooms and a/c for the bedrooms. The king size bed was more than big enough for our two kids to sleep and play with their devices. We loved lunches on the outdoor patio, swimming in the pool and easy access to the ocean for snorkelling. There is actually a view of the ocean from one of the bedrooms (if you sit up and lean a little). The grounds were well kept and staff very friendly. Rhonda was very helpful and answered our questions regarding the condo and the area. We enjoyed walking to La Buena Vida for breakfast or evening margaritas and dining at La Lunita around the corner. Yal-ku was a 10 min walk away for some of the best snorkelling ever. We also loved the gardens and statues in surrounding Yal-ku. Akumal town was also fantastic for hitting the beach, having fresh fish at Cueva del Pescador or an ice cream at Lucy's. Turtle Bay Bakery was also great. It was very easy to get on the 307 to visit Tulum, Coba and other places. All in all, it was a fab holiday, great place and we hope to return!

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of spending 4 fantastic days in this condo. La Iguana is one of the nicest condos on Halfmoon bay. The only issue we had was there was no hot water, the condo manager attempted to change the hot water tank 2 times to no avail. This condo even without hot water was perfect. I cannot wait to come back again!! Thank you Rhonda for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jason. Sorry about the water. We are still trying to solve that problem. It may be the hot water pipe coming into the condo. They are working on it tomorrow, so hopefully it's resolved quickly. I look forward to your next stay...with hot water.

Beautiful Spot

  • 4 of 5

We spent a lovely six days at Condo Iguana. The owner was very attentive and helpful. As always "things happen". There was no hot water for a couple of days but the owner promptly replaced the water heater and all was well. Thanks Rhonda. We will return.

Beautiful Akumal

  • 4 of 5

Stayed 3 nights in a lovely condo unit with my family of four (2 teenage boys) on the bay.

Unit was in a good location next to the lagoon & Half-moon bay. Beds, kitchen, and bathrooms were all more than satisfactory. Most of the restaurants & the beach were more than a walk away but if you have a car you're fine. Golf carts and bikes are available for rental. Xel-Ha and Xcaret are not too far of a drive north. Went on an ATV tour (operated nearby) which was a lot of fun.

The amount and quality of towels were on the low side. Beach towels are provided by the front desk. Internet connection was very poor.

I'd recommend it!

Owner's Response: Hi Dave, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Sorry you had issues with the internet connection and wish we had more options in Akumal. I'm sure they will come as time goes on and hopefully the next time you visit the area, that will be improved.

GREAT place for a pit stop location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is pristine! We loved it. The actual location is great for snorkeling or hanging out and reading. But we mostly used it as a great pit stop between all the amazing places up and down the 307. Akumal itself was the highlight. The condo was perfect though. Thanks Rhonda! We will be back.
