It also has details on renting a car and how much to expect to spend. We try to expect as much as we can so there are no surprises.

The condo is well appointed with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The kitchen has everything you need to be a chef or a short order cook. There is also a gas grill on the main patio.

The condo is away from the main highway and in the Sirenis Resort residence complex. There is a gated security staff full time.

About Rob and Vonda Phillips

My wife and I live in Chicago and always wanted to have a sunny place to get away from the cold Illinois winters. We discovered Akumal in 2003.

After many vacations we started to look for our own place and found our condo. Akumal has a magic that's draws you back again and again. We spent over a year of constant shopping to make our place not just a vacation spot, but a real home away from home. Shopping in Mexico is harder then in the states but we feel all our time really paid off. We truly feel that there is a warm inviting feeling very unique to Akumal. We care for our guest to feel right at home from the minute they open the door.

Rob and Vonda Phillips purchased this condo in 2007

Why Rob and Vonda Phillips chose Akumal

The condo has the feeling of being in the jungle at night. The nights are full of stars and animals. The condo has all the modern appointments and is very comfortable.

What makes this condo unique

There is a private beach and lagoon you can only access if you are a resident to the Sirenis Resort complex.

You also have the option for $50.00 per person US to use the resort facility's for the day. That has to be set up in advance up to 48 hours. They have an amazing spa (at an additional cost) where you can relax and pamper yourself!

Perfect condo near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo is immaculate, and had everything we needed to be comfortable for our week in Mexico. There is a beach a short walk away, and we could hear the waves at night. It is close to so many things to see and do, like Tulum and Coba, cenotes for swimming, beaches for snorkeling, even a secret lagoon! We loved coming back to this stylish and comfortable condo in the evenings to read in a hammock or play cards. Our two teenagers enjoyed checking out the scene at the resort next door. Something for everyone!

Excellent trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday trip to Koai Condos at Grand Sirenis. The condo was exactly as pictured - clean, contemporary, safe, and furnished with everything we needed. Rob's guide to the area set us up with everything we wanted to do - from the ruins to Tulum to beaches less traveled - and especially the restaurants. The local food was excellent - we lost count of how many fish tacos the 4 of us ate. The guide also made the challenges of traveling in a foreign country (for the first time) easy - we had no problems at all. Thanks for sharing your experience and VRBO property with us.

Lovely, clean + comfortable jungle condo

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from the most lovely trip to Akumal / Tulum. Fresh seafood, snorkeling, relaxing in the sun -- but coming home each night to this beautiful condo was the icing on the cake.

The condo is beautifully furnished and comfortable for a family of four. We had everything we needed, including fresh water, clean sheets + towels, a coffee maker and beach chairs. We slept with the doors and windows open each night, giving us a nice breeze, cool air and jungle sounds in the morning.

The short walk to the mostly-deserted beach is lovely, and the beach itself is absolutely gorgeous. Did lots of exploring there. Also went on nice, long runs each morning through the Sirenis property and down the beach. Felt very safe.

Rob's guide was incredibly helpful (gave us better tips than our Lonely Planet guide book, in fact!). We both appreciated his check-ins ahead of and during the trip to ensure everything was to our satisfaction (which it was -- and then some!).

We'll absolutely be back. It was a perfect vacation.

Car: recommended

Our Mexico Modern condo, in a gated, private residence attached to a 5 star resort. Very quite jungle surroundings just 5 minutes walk to our private beach. Just 5 minutes drive from Akumal and their beautiful beaches where you can snorkle with turtles all year long. This location is right in the heart of the Mayan Riviera attactions, like Xcaret (10 minutes drive) and the Tulum ruins, only 20 minutes drive away. Deep sea fishing and Cenotes (underwater caves) are all right here with many companies to choose from. The Bahia Pricipe resort has just constructed one of the most beautiful golf courses we have ever seen. We have personally pre-approved many restaurants and taco stands so you can be assured of some fantastic meals. The condo is fully ready for a gourmet cook, so you can shop local and create your own amazing 'catch of the day'.
