About Sherry Sullivan

My husband and I first visited Akumal in 1999 and fell in love with the area, the people and the natural beauty. It became a dream to own a condo in Akumal and for the next several years, we researched and saved until our dream finally came true!

Many friends and family members have visited over the years. They all agree that Akumal is very special. Just the perfect combination of tropical relaxation with services nearby and welcoming, warm people. It is so true, one visit to Akumal and you will want to return again and again!

Sherry Sullivan purchased this condo in 2003

Why Sherry Sullivan chose Tulum

The beaches and natural lagoons of the Riviera Maya are spectactularly beautiful, but Half Moon Bay in Akumal has the best of all worlds! A sandy white beach with incredible underwater life that can be viewed right from our terrace! A daily swim, float or snorkel in Half Moon Bay is a treat, and the awesome Yalku Lagoon is a short walk up the road. The sandy beach of Akumal Bay is a short walk in the southern direction.

What makes this condo unique

Staying in Lol Ka'naab on Half Moon Bay is peaceful and quiet, away from the hubbub of Akumal Bay. You will be close to many delicious restaurants, shops featuring local handcrafts, small grocery stores and produce market. The snorkeling in Half Moon Bay is world class, teaming with sea life such as turtles, rays, and a multitude of fish! Rent snorkel equipment nearby and bring an underwater camera to capture the beauty, or just relax under the palapa and take a dip in the pool!

A good place to stay at Half Moon Bay

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, pretty and spacious condo right on Half Moon Beach. The condo has two big bedrooms and two big bathrooms. Unusual to go to a toilet without a door, but we got used to it. Loved the size of the shower in the master bedroom. Great towels for showers and for the beach.

The condo comfortably sleeps five, but there are only four chairs indoors and outdoors so we couldn't sit together all five of us. I also found the plastic table on the balcony very wobbly. The balcony has a fantastic view though and the hammock provides a relaxing place to read or sleep.

The kitchen is very clean, very well-equipped and easy to use. There are two sofas that are a bit difficult to sit in since the cushions keep moving and fall out.

The location is great since you've got the magnificent views and the beach just in front of the building. It is a quiet place - lovely! There is a (cold) pool, sunbeds (cushions would have been nice) and a gorgeous beach. You can borrow kayaks - we liked that! It is difficult to go in to the water though, you need water shoes. My kids didn't like the sharp corals since they make it less pleasant to play in the water. (The beach in Akumal (1 km away) has a great sandy beach but is so crowded.) The snorkeling was good if you go far left and pretty far out.

Nearby you can eat any meal at La Buena Vida - we loved the place, the food, the staff and the amazing feeling of eating barefoot under the palms! 1 km away you find the really cool lagoon - Yal Ku - where the snorkeling is great. Go early in the morning (they open at 9 am) to avoid the crowds.

Thank you Sherry for having us! /Ulrika and family

Great location and comfortable condo right on the beach. Nice place for one or two couples. Amazing restaurants within walking distance and easy access to the dive center. Looking forward to returning soon.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Akumal before so I knew the condo was in the location I wanted. The unit was just perfect and the owner (Sherry) was great to work with. We will definitely be returning again...hopefully soon! :)

Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

First time in Akumal, so beautiful! The apartment is wonderfully situated and Sherry provides you with lots of info to help you navigate. We took her advice re. hiring a taxi for the day to got to Tulum (amazing) and did that again to go to Chichen Itza (worth the effort of the trip, spectacular, and stop in Valladolid on your way back for lunch)--way cheaper than a guided tour and if you want a guide they have them at the entrance for about 30 USD for 2 hours. The apartment suited our needs quite well though it got a bit crowded at dinner (2 adults and 3 kids) as the indoor table is quite small and it was too windy in the evenings in March to eat on the balcony (where the larger table was), also the WiFi was a bit spotty--my husband had to work on some days and so he had to be strategic with where he set up his laptop. One suggestion--we cooked a lot and a few more pots would have been great. Wonderful vacation, we will definitely head back!

Love Akumal

We love Akumal. It was great to be able to get in the ocean right from the condo. The condo worked out very well for our family of 5.

Right for All the Right Reasons

  • 4 of 5

We've been to the Akumal-Tulum area for the past 15 years. We love the picturesque beach and chic vibe of Tulum, but it's been discovered ... so Akumal provides a great alternative. We've statyed at La Kanaab twice and it offers the comfort of a home at an affordable price. We picked up groceries at the Chedraui in Puerto Adventurous on our way down and cooked about half our meals for ourselves and indulged at La Buena Vida most happy hours and dinner every other night. We snorkeled Half-moon Bay on the calmer days and went on excursions when it was too windy ... including Yalku (like swimming in aquarium), Dos Ojos cenote (go to the back-eye) and Coba (rent a guide and bikes). Overall a relaxing week with lots of fun mixed in. La Kanaab is perfect for our needs.
