Overview

Akumal Condo Rental Photos and Description

Akumal beach front Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Our Akumal penthouse condo PC#11 is in the Playa Caribe condo building which is considered by most to be the best on the beach! Our condo is fully stocked and equipped to make you feel at home. Daily maid service is provided. We are the only condo building in Akumal with our own water filtration and treatment plant onsite. You use the water out of the faucets and showers just like at home. Dish TV with HBO, DVD player, Stereo with usb for your IPOD or IPHONE and a BBQ for your enjoyment. Playa Caribe offers free WIFI. We are also one of a very few with a pool. If you are looking for a beach vacation where you can walk to the store and restaurants our condo is in the perfect location. From the balcony you can see La Buena Vida beach bar about 4 minutes walk down the beach and La Lunita restaurant about 4 minute walk up the beach. The village of Akumal is a short walk where there are many restaurants, galleries and shops.

Balcony experience!

While our condo is very well kept, nicely decorated and well appointed we can not compete with the view from our balcony. The pelicans and osprey fly only an arms length away. Looking down into the bay you will see turtles, rays, parrot fish and all the other sea life on display in the crystal clear waters. You can look to the east and see the Island of Cozumal and watch the cruise ships arriving and departing. Early morning risers will see the sun magically appear from the depths of the Caribbean. We have an electric BBQ, table for four and a lounge for your use on the Balcony. Past guests keep coming back year after year to enjoy the balcony and all the other attractions nearby.

About Mike Cook

We have owned PC#11 for over ten years and never get bored returning. We spend our time in Akumal scattered throughout the months to experience all the different exciting events. Turtles laying their eggs beginning in May then hatching through November. Butterfly migrations in August, great fishing in April, May and June and snorkeling all year long.

Mike Cook purchased this condo in 2004

Why Mike Cook chose Quintana Roo

Akumal is very unique. We have traveled extensively throughout Mexico and have seen no where else that is even close. Akumal is a small community with all the services that you would need all within walking distance. Restaurants, beach bars, galleries, gift shops, grocery stores, dive shops, fishing boats, YalKu lagoon and all the Mayan ancient sites to visit.

What makes this condo unique

Most of the activities we do are all nature centered. The area offers a wide variety of experiences to try. But we also like to laze around the beach or just read a good book on the balcony watching the birds, fish and turtles.

Amazing Condo! Incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

Wow -- this place was truly amazing! The pictures do not do it justice. This condo has the best view of any in half moon bay. We were debating this place or a condo on the first floor by the pool. I am so glad we rented this one. The view was unbeatable. I don't think I've had a better view at any other place I've ever stayed at.

The condo was perfect. It had all of the modern amenities but still retained it's local charm. It was great to have filtered water -- had no issues drinking that all week. Air conditioning was great. The onsite staff was great -- very helpful.

It was also nice that half moon bay is a bit away from Akumal. Akumal gets very crowded during the day with all the tourists coming to see the turtles. But half moon bay stayed very mellow and not crowded at all.

It is on the 4th floor (which make the views great) -- so there is a walk up the stairs. But totally worth it. And most of the time we needed to work off lunch or dinner anyway.

And the pool was great for the kids. It looked small in the pictures, but the size was perfect. One of the best pools of any place on the bay.

I'd recommend a car - we rented one and were glad we did. Made it easy to get around and there was plenty of parking.

Great place! Great staff! Amazing views! You can't go wrong here

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

The condo was lovely, with a great up close view of the bay and air conditioning that worked. Having drinkable water was also a huge plus, compared to,where our adult kids and families stayed. Management was cooperative and maid service excellent.

Great nearby restaurant is. la Buena Vida right on the beach .

I would recommend the property. One facet not related to the property was the Mexican police who,shook us down foe $100 at four a.m. on way to airport.

Fantastic view. Beautiful condo. Quiet Half moon bay. Friendly service. Staff available on site.

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely go back. The place is very clean. The location is fantastic. The nearby Akumal Bay has snorkeling with dozens of turtles which is fabulous but this means it is very popular and hordes of tourists descend from buses every day. Fortunately it does not affect the half moon beach, but one has to drive through it.

amazing view at a beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous property with the perfect view of half moon bay in Akumal. Centrally located between La Buena Vida & La Lunita restaurants. The 4th floorcondo is not for the faint of heart or those with bad knees as there is no elelevator but the view is amazing. All the comforts of home in a paradise setting. Very comfortable beds & bedding. Delightfully friendly and helpful staff made our stay even more enjoyable.

STUNNING VIEWS!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to vacation! My husband and I spent 9 wonderful nights here in this condo #11 on Half Moon Bay. The reviews were absolutely true, this place is amazing. It just takes your breath away the minute you walk in! It is the best place on the bay!!!

The condo is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and tastefully decorated. Bathrooms are huge and up to date as well. The pictures do not do it justice. The entire building is kept spotless, they clean everything from top to bottom daily. The management is there to answer any questions you might have with anything. The fact that you can drink the water is a BIG plus too!

The town is less than a mile away, you can either walk or bike or rent a golf cart if you do not have a car. Many good restaurants in the area along with snorkeling or scuba diving with numerous day trips to choose from.

This condo is a must if you are looking for a 2 bdr. 2 bath.....best one on the bay!!!

Best view on the Beach !

  • 5 of 5

I took my sons ( 15 and 19 ) along with my son's girlfriend to this wonderful condo for 8 days of rest and relaxation. The condo is extremely clean and the view CAN'T be beat ! The staff are very friendly and helpful. We felt completely safe and relaxed during our stay. We would recommend this condo for people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle and want to relax. We did make a couple of day trips to Playa Del Carmen for a nice, easy getaway. Cab ride was about $26 one way but we could of also taken a local bus service for much less. This area is great for those who love to snorkel, scuba dive and fish. The potable water in the condo was very convenient as well as the wifi which was stronger than we expected. The only thing that I wish we would of had was a washer/dryer but we made due with hand washing and air drying. Also just a note that there I no elevator so mobility issues could be an issue for some. We knew tis ahead of time so we were ok. The security guard carried our luggage up and down the stairs without being asked. Owner was very good at keeping in touch and answering my questions. He even got transportation to and from Cancun arranged for us. Would definitely stay here again !

Our penthouse condo is located on Half Moon Bay just a short 15 minute walk to the village of Akumal. The view from the balcony is absolutely breathtaking. Akumal is centrally located to all that the Yucatan has to offer. Just 25 minutes from Playa del Carmen and the exciting Fifth Ave and ferry to Cozumel. 20 minutes south is Tulum with the ancient Mayan archaeological site sitting on the bluff overlooking the Caribbean. The beaches of Tulum are world renowned for their spectacular white sand, blue waters and seemingly endless length.
