Akumal condo description

The rates for this condo are super low. Off season rate is $100/night for a lovely condo in top condition on the sand. Daily maid service is provided. Two couples can easily share this condo and the cost would be $50/night per couple. The condo at these rates is a huge bargain. High season rate of $160/night also is well below the competition. We now have 2 pools since we are just completing a new pool (11/11). Large, quiet condominium on the sand. Fabulous views of the Caribbean.Great snorkeling and diving right in front. Condominium is in top condition and has a fully equipped kitchen and daily maid service. We do have wifi on the property.

Smoke-Free condominium has a large private patio with hammock. Each bedroom has a king size bed and private terraces. Property is walled for privacy and has a pool and is beautifully landscaped. We have an ideal location at the end of Half Moon Bay in Akumal where the road ends. We are set back 50 yards making our location both very private and quiet. We have an excellent management team that is very responsive to our renters and are right on the grounds to help solve any problems.

We have many restaurants in Akumal and are within a short drive to Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. Shopping is also available in Akumal.

We are within driving distance to Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Coba. Many wonderful excursions are available. Car rental is available and reasonably priced right at the Cancun Airport which is one hour from the condominium.

This is not a densely populated area. No large hotels. We are located 300 yards from wonderful Yal Ku Lagoon. Owner has a guide to the area and is available to help renters with travel plans.

We have just added a vonage phone and offer our renters free usage of this phone for calls to the U.S. We ask that calls be limited to 5 minutes.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1991

                  About the owner: the owners are Carol & Marty Klein. We are a retired couple that purchased the condo in construction in 1991. It is our goal to make this the best condo and La Iguana the best complex in Akumal. Our other owners are agreement to do all we can to make La Iguana Condos the best in Akumal. I (Marty) love to talk to prospective renters to tell them about the condo and the Akumal area. I have a lot of suggestions for excursions and for restaurants in the area. Because I have owned now for 20 years, I have a lot of knowledge about what the area offers the visitor. Serving our renters is on the top of our list so that they will have a memorable vacation in Akumal and will return and recommend us to family and friends.

                  Why the Owner Chose Akumal:
                  We were visiting the area in 1991 and thought this was paradise. We purchased the property while it was in construction when we saw the bay, the location and the view we would have. The snorkeling in Half Moon Bay was wonderful and the fact that the water was so clear and that waves did not break on the shore but broke on the other side of the protective reef. We have a large covered private patio behind locked doors. This patio has a hammock, sofa, table and chairs and a storage area. There are also Caribbean views from this patio. The condo does not have a/c because we have not needed. Our unique location at the northern end of Half Moon Bay and on the north side of the building gives the condo exposure to breezes off the Caribbean, from the north and from the west. These exposure provide almost constant breezes that keep the condo comfortable. We also have high speed fans throughout the condo and have 2 tower portable air coolers that can be placed where ever needed. Even during the hot months of July & August we are almost always comfortable in the condo. Because we do not have a/c, we can rent the condo for rates that are below our competition that does have a/c. The condo is always in top condition and our on site manager is there to handle any problems instantly.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  A top notch condo on the sand for incredibly low rates. $160/night in high season and $100/night in low season. Two kid friendly pools on the grounds.Quiet privacy, amazing views from almost everywhere in the condo, wonderful breezes that blow off the water. The amazing amount of activities that are available, the wonderful native people that service the area. The brightness and comfort of the condo. The wonderful management team that is on the grounds and assists with any problem we or our renters may have. Our great maid Ana who always has a smile on her face and does a great job of cleaning the condo everyday. All the wonderful artwork throughout the condo. The fully equipped kitchen that has all the appliances you would need. Yal Ku Lagoon is a wonder and is only a few hundred yards from the condo. We keep our rates very low because we do not have a/c. We have high speed fans throughout the condo and supplement that with portable tower air coolers. Because the condo is at the far northern end of Half Moon Bay, we benefit from our location and the fact that we have exposure to breezes from the east (off the bay), from the north (northern winds are very common in Akumal) and from the east. These exposures and our screened windows that open to let the breezes in, keep us cool and allow us to keep our costs down and therefore our rates very low. Air conditioning is very expensive to maintain in Akumal and why pay for something that you won't need. I have many renters who will attest to the comfort of the condo in the summer. During the months of September through April it almost never gets to the point that one would use a/c but condos that have it charge higher rates all year.
