                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: Paul and I live on a lake in upstate New York. We are water people who love to travel. Paul is a horticulturist and I am a retired teacher and school couselor. We love swimming and snorkeling in the bay and sitting on the beach reading. We enjoy our morning coffee on our balcony and taking a beach walk. In the evening we enjoy a glass of wine watching the sunset on our roof top patio. Our children had their honeymoon in Akumal. Now they come with our grandchildren and we love watching them create wonders in the sand.

                      Why Akumal:
                      Paul & I started coming to the Yucatan in 1996. On our first trip we fell in love with the beaches and snorkeling in Akumal. We were fascinated by the Mayan ruins and culture. On our third trip we bought a beachfront condo in Playa del Carmen. When we were down in 2000 we were back in Akumal and realized this was the spot that made us love the area. Our one-bedroom is the perfect beachfront spot to plan our Mayan adventures. We also bought 2 studio/efficiencies for friends and family when they come to visit. The sunsets over the jungle are a perfect way to end our day.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
                      We love the light and airy feel to our condo and its privacy. It is often called the Honeymoon Nest. After our morning beach walk we enjoy our breakfast on our balcony with the view of the Bay. The condo is in the sandy center of Half Moon Bay and the snorkeling is right out the door. Our management is wonderful, on site, and always there to make your stay a pleasant one. The condo is easy walking distance to a number of excellent restaurants, dive shop, and YalKu Lagoon. We end our day on the rooftop terrace and watch the sunset over the jungle and the moon rise over the water.
