Akumal condo description
La Bahia #4 is one of the most beautiful condos on the sandy beach at Half Moon Bay, Akumal. The spectacular views from inside the condo and on the balcony allow you to see turtles and rays cavorting in the water, and breathtaking vistas across the Caribbean Sea almost to infinity. Akumal, or 'place of the turtle' in Maya, is a destination for those wanting to leave the pressures of home and be restored here in paradise, yet with enough diversions (like world-class snorkeling and diving and delicious restaurants that you can walk to) for your delight.
This 2-bedroom 2-bath unit has both Mexican and Caribbean ambiance throughout with many cultural art objects. A second floor unit, La Bahia #4 offers fabulous views from the 3 windowed walls in the living room, while providing the additional privacy of an upper level. You have a choice to satisfy your temperature preferences; the rooms are all air conditioned, yet the many windows allow gentle tropical breezes to cool the condo while still allowing you to hear the native birds.
Both bedrooms offer the sights and sounds of the beach and jungle. The master bedroom has warm earth-tone colors and the ambiance of conquistador Spanish Mexico, with luxurious king size bedding and high thread-count sheets, local art by Sergio Gamboa, filigree mirror, and closet safe. The second bedroom is decorated in the Mexican/Caribbean style, and iron headboards above the comfy twin beds. The two baths each have mirrors and hair dryers.
The living room, with its breath-taking 270° vistas, has an iPod Dock Speaker System, a flat screen TV with DVD player and Sky satellite TV so you can watch those important sports games or movies. There is a library of DVDs for checkout in the office. We love to read so there is an eclectic selection of books available. FREE high-speed wireless internet service within the condo allows you to remain in contact and there is a daily FREE newspaper delivered to your door.
The kitchen has hand-created tile and faux-painted walls and is fully stocked with all amenities including spices, coffee maker, blender, microwave, range with oven, beach decorative plates and glasses—plus many more items.
Swing in the terrace hammock, or play cards out under the stars on the patio set. Read a book in the sun or have a margarita under the moonlight.
You will find that La Bahia #4 is paradise on earth.

A great place to stay! The pictures on the website are exactly like your condo and the area is in person. Everything you need is within walking distance and if you do not want to walk there are a number of nearby bicycle or golf cart rentals. You have a number of restaurants with a short walk. Our favorite for price and value was La Buena Vida (LBV). Great snorkeling is right out your door. If the day is a little windy then an 8 minute walk takes you to the World Famous Yal-Ku Lagoon. This is a must as you have fresh water, brackish water and then salt water with tons of marine life. If you want miles of gentle, sandy beaches then a 15 minute walk takes you to Akumal Beach, lots of turtles but lots of people. We have stayed at some 5* plus resorts and La Bahia #4 is a very close accommodation. Nights are true joy what with the lapping of the ocean and jungle song birds to wake you in the morning. We had a great time and highly recommend your condo!

La Bahia #4 turned out to be the perfect choice for us! My husband and I and our two boys stayed in the condo in August for a week. It was clean, had great AC, wifi, and satellite TV, and was just as expected. The daily maid service was an added bonus. The view was so beautiful from the balcony. There were several turtle nests right in front of the condo and we enjoyed walking the beach at night after dinner to see if any nests were hatching, we got lucky and saw 3 nests hatch! The location was perfect, right in the middle of Half Moon Bay and an easy walk to La Buena Vida and La Lunita restaurants - both great by the way. The beds were very comfy which can be hard to find in Mexico. We also enjoyed that La Bahia is a smaller condo building and was very quiet even though it was full. There were plenty of lounge chairs on the beach all the time and the management was so friendly and helpful. I have to thank the owner, George, for being so wonderful to us. Hurricane Ernesto came through right in the middle of our trip. He was concerned for our safety and made sure we were in contact with the management and felt comfortable staying in the condo. The management at the condo could not have been better, checking on us throughout the hurricane, bringing us candles, answering our questions, and generally keeping an eye on things. Even a hurricane could not spoil our week at La Bahia #4! Thanks again to George, we hope to be back. It was a wonderful week!

We spent 10 glorious day with our teenage grandson at LaBahia #4 and had a wonderful time. The condo is just as the pictures show - and the view is spectacular. The beds are comfortable, the place is very clean and the management staff is available if you need anything or have any questions. The location was perfect for sightseeing the area - Xcaret, Xel-ha, Coba, Aktun Chen and we even took the ferry over to Cozumel. We hadn't even left for home before our grandson was asking if we could come back to LaBahia #4 again. We definately will. Thank you Sheri & Ron for sharing your home with us !!

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We live in St. Louis, Missouri and have a swimming pool business. We have been vacationing in Mexico for the last 20 years and have been to both the west and east coasts of Mexico and just love Akumal.
Why the Owner Chose Akumal:
We always wanted a vacation home in Mexico and have looked at many places over the years and just absolutely love La Bahia. Unit 4 is on the second floor and has amazing views. On our first visit to Akumal we fell in love with the community. Everyone is friendly and you feel very safe and welcome there.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
La Bahia has staff on site and being on Half Moon Bay is great. It's within walking distance of restaurants/bars and yet is quiet and peaceful. Sitting on the balcony and watching the sun come up with our morning coffee is one of our favorite pastimes. A short stroll to La Buena Vida for an evening cocktail is a fabulous way to end a day of snorkeling and relaxing on the beach.
