Property description

Views! Views! Views! Enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the blue Caribbean Sea from the oversized 3rd floor balcony of this spacious 1600 sq. foot beachfront penthouse condominium. Watch from above as turtles pop their heads up for a breath and stingrays glide by in Half Moon Bay. Or better yet, grab your mask and snorkel and join them!

Snorkeling and diving are within easy access. Enter Half Moon Bay right off the beach to see turtles, stingrays, coral and fish. A short walk to the north will take you to the calm, clear water of Yal Ku Lagoon with its large variety of colorful fish. And a short walk to the south you will find Akumal Bay where seeing a turtle is just about guaranteed, along with squid, parrot fish and eagle rays.

There are three dive centers in Akumal, one located right on Half Moon Bay, all with PADI-certified instructors offering sensational reef and cenote cavern dives.

Of course relaxing on the white sandy beach is always another inviting option. Whether you prefer the sun or the shade of a palm tree or palapa, there are plenty of lounge chairs to go around.

Comfortably accommodating up to 8 adults, this unit offers 3 bedrooms, each with its own connecting full bathroom. There is a king sized bed in the master bedroom with a view of the sea. The second bedroom has a full and two twins (bunk beds). And the third bedroom has a queen sized bed, with separate entry from the main condo - which makes it perfect for two couples traveling together who want a little privacy. This third bedroom has its own kitchenette with sink, mini fridge, microwave, blender, coffee maker, dishes and utensils, TV and DVD player, and a patio area which overlooks the lush green jungle and magnificent sunsets. Take just a few steps up to the rooftop seating area for better views of the bay, the sunsets, or star-gazing at night.

This 3 bedroom condo can be rented as a 2 bedroom condo with a lockout to the third bedroom.

The living area of the main unit is very roomy with a V-shaped couch facing the sliding glass doors which open to the balcony overlooking the sea. A large dining table seats eight. There is a fully equipped kitchen complete with large refrigerator, microwave, 4-burner gas stove/oven, coffee maker, toaster, blender, quality pots & pans, knives, utensils, serve ware, dishes and glasses. Daily maid service and fresh drinking water are provided. There are ceiling fans throughout and air conditioning is available in all bedrooms, though most of the time the gentle breezes from the sea make air conditioning unnecessary.

Other amenities in the condo include:

Wireless internet
Cable TV
Flat screen TV
DVD player with large selection of movies
Stereo iPod dock
Jacuzzi tub in master bath with view of the sea
Electronic laptop-sized safe to secure valuables
Pillow-top mattresses
Iron with ironing board

Centrally located on Half Moon Bay, it is just a short walk to nearby restaurants, including the world famous La Buena Vida swing bar and restaurant, for a rollicking good time. An equal distance in the other direction will take you to La Lunita where you can bury your toes in the sand while enjoying a romantic candlelight dinner.

There is a small market located across the street from the condo for ice, milk, eggs or other last minute items…like ice cream! The nearby village of Akumal also has two grocery stores with a larger selection of items, restaurants, gift shops, farmers market, art studio, jewelry store, and yoga center.

For the adventurous, there are many excursions within minutes from the condo including the magnificent Mayan ruins of Tulum, the caves of Aktun Chen, many fresh water cenotes, Xel-Ha and Xcaret theme parks, Playacar golf course. Fifth Avenue in Playa del Carmen lights up and comes alive at night with its endless shops and restaurants.

May through September is turtle nesting and hatching season and many green and loggerhead turtles return to the beaches of Half Moon Bay to bury their eggs in the sand to incubate for about 60 days. And if you’re lucky, you may also see hundreds of hatchlings making their way to the sea. To observe this act of nature is an absolutely amazing and unforgettable experience.

We have been vacationing in Akumal since 2002 and would love to share our second home with you. We have the knowledge and experience of the area and are eager to make suggestions to make your Akumal vacation enjoyable. If there’s anything you would like to know, just ask!
