About Rosemary Johnson
My husband (John), American, is recently retired from the IMF. I (Rosemary) am English and a retired Nursery School Director. We searched for 5 years for a Caribbean beachfront location to spend several months each year during our retirement. When we accidentally found the gem that is Akumal along the Riviera Maya in Mexico we knew we had found our second home.
Rosemary Johnson purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Rosemary Johnson chose Akumal
Akumal is an exceptionally friendly, quiet little beach town, with fabulous snorkeling, offering coral reef and sea turtles right from the beautiful white sand and palm tree beach.
What makes this Condo unique
Mi Casa del Mar is an attractively designed building of 14 condo units on four levels. The common areas include a large shaded lobby, ocean-front infinity pool, lounge chairs, shaded gazebo and outside shower. The condo is about a 5 minute walk from Akumal village and the beautiful Akumal Bay. It is close enough to enjoy the powder white beach and numerous turtles of the bay and the delicacies of the local restaurants, yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet and peacefulness of being off the beaten track. Walking 5 minutes in the other direction takes you to the picturesque Half Moon Bay and other restaurants and gift shops. About a 20 minute walk from the condo is Yalku Lagoon where for a small fee you can snorkel in the calm, clear waters of the lagoon with hundreds of tropical fish.

Great vacation at Mi Casa Del Mar. We hired a chef and truly enjoy dining on the deck each night
The Condo overall is everything promised. The public beach at Akumal is a bit of a cluster mess with all the new regulations, And we would take a pass on that in future trips.
We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful, comfortable spot. Plenty of room for the six of us to sit and enjoy the glorious view of the ocean and listen to the waves. Everything you could possibly want was supplied. Walking distance to fun places to have great food. I would highly recommend it.
Well positioned to take advantage of the fantastic ocean sunrises and sunsets on the side balcony. Maria (the housekeeper) was awesome and kept my son entertained with her towel creations. A couple good restaurants within a quarter mile walk either way (Turtle Bay Cafe & La Buena Vida). My wife asked me if we had to leave at one point...lol. Easy access by taxi / colectivo to the eco-parks (Xcaret was great for the family) nearby, Playa Del Carmen (a bit further North), and Tulum (to the South). We used the pool below daily and loved the relative peace of only a few others versus the expected pool crowds at the all inclusive resorts. We loved to have the doors open and sit in the lounge chairs outside in the evening. Being our first time in Mexico we weren’t sure what to expect but the people (both local and otherwise) were friendly without being intrusive. We’ll be back!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back.
Mi Casa Del Mar is an ideal destination for a relaxing vacation. The condo is beautiful, clean, well stocked, comfortable, and a perfect place for relaxation. The views, open space (inside and out), and location allow for a quiet beautiful and serene space with access to restaurants, bars, and large spectacular beaches.
Rosemary was always available and answered our questions to fine tune our stay. Thanks
Beautiful Condo in Akumal
Great location between Half Moon and Akumal Bays. Large open floor plan but with privacy in bedrooms. Two great patios overlooking the ocean with views of both sunrise and sunset! Good information on local restaurants and we had cooks come to the condo and prepare a delicious New Years Eve meal. Akumal Dive Shop just down was great for fun diving. Cash machines were not working well so suggest exchanging for pesos before arriving. No television but that was fine with us. Opportunity to concentrate on card and board games. WiFi worked well and caught football games on tv at local bar. Overall a delightful stay!
This beautiful property was even better than expected and everyone was friendly and helpful.
We had a wonderful trip and enjoyed our stay at Mi Casa del Mar even more than anticipated. The property is so comfortable, relaxing and beautiful and I wouldn’t change a thing about our stay there. If we ever return to the area it would be my first choice for accommodation.
Akumal is very visitor friendly and even though we enjoyed exploring the surrounding areas, Akumal was our favorite. Everything you need is close by and there are golf carts for rent if you don’t rent a vehicle or don’t want to walk.
I would highly recommend new visitors to the area to check out La Buena Vida for meals. It was our favorite go to spot for meals.
Thanks to everyone who made our stay so special!
Akumal is a beautiful fishing village known locally as the place of the turtle. Snorkeling with the turtles in the bay or with the beautiful tropical fish in Yalku Lagoon are among our favorite things to do. When you are tired of the beautiful sandy beach and palm trees, Akumal offers plenty of activities; several diving outfits offer various levels of diving including bubble diving for children 8 years and older, fishing, sailing sunset cruises or jungle ATV tours. The village also has many cute gift stores, two grocery stores, a spar, gym, tennis court, basketball court and a weekly market. A variety of local restaurants offer excellent and inexpensive local and international dishes. Within a 30 min drive you can reach many other places: Playa Del Carmen with its famous 5th avenue shopping, dancing and nightlife, Tulum with numerous restaurants and gift shops, three eco water parks, Maya ruins, a monkey sanctuary and swim with dolphin parks. There are also numerous sandy beaches and cenotes for more swimming snorkeling, diving, and zip lines. Day trips could include; taking a ferry to Cozumel where you can explore both the island and famous reef, exploring the extensive ruins of Chichen Itza, or enjoying one of the many tours offered in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, one of the world’s largest reserves.
