Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This is a beachfront ocean view paradise. Whether you snorkel or dive just a few steps outside your door in Half Moon Bay (the snorkeling in front is incredible!) or take a leisurely walk to nearby Yal Ku Lagoon to swim with its abundant fish and sea turtles; or just want to take a quick dip in the pool between relaxed reading on the beach you’ll enjoy this conveniently located condominium in South Akumal on the Mayan Rivera.

Our condominium has one of the best views in Akumal, perched on the north point of Half Moon Bay. This oceanfront condo has large tinted glass walls facing the sea, providing an awesome view from the living room, kitchen and dining room.

There is a full kitchen with utensils, daily maid service and fresh drinking water.

The ocean side tanning area is pure sand maintained by a retaining wall at water's edge. There are thatched shade umbrellas and chaise lounges on the sand making a very nice tanning area. Some of the best snorkeling is right off the condos on the north end of the bay. A small pool is located just off the beach, cool off after sunbathing.

Nearby another excellent snorkeling opportunity awaits in Yal ku lagoon which is just a 5 minute walk away. Before you get to Yal ku you will pass Que Onda Italian restaurant serving fresh pasta, Italian specialties, fine wines and yummy deserts. A convenience store is by the parking lot in front of the condos for last minute items. Farther south down the north Akumal road are more restaurants, convenience stores, La Buena Vida bar/restaurant and their dive shop, and finally the heart of Akumal at Akumal Bay. There you will find grocery stores, gift shops, Lol ha beach bar and restaurant, two dive shops, and of course, famous Akumal main beach. Both Akumal main beach and Half Moon Bay are famous for marine turtles who can usually be seen on any given snorkeling session.

The beautiful Tulum Ruins are only 20 minutes drive, there are several local cenotes 5 minutes away.

About Doreen

My husband, my daughter and I live in Portland, Oregon. The very first time I went to Akumal I absolutely fell in love with it. I never thought I would want to own proprty In Mexico and then I discoverd the Yucatan and the Carribean. A owner of the property where we were staying told me the condo was for sale, Three month later I flew down to take ownership.

Doreen purchased this condo in 2008

Why Doreen chose Akumal

The ocean view is absolutely amazing and I love the two swimming pools. I can't get enough of the snokeling directly out front.

What makes this condo unique

Once again the view are what make this condo so charming. I made a staind glass window in Portland and hauled it down with me to add to the charm. All the pictures were hand chosen to reresent the area and fit in to the environment. I have done all I can to make it personal and comfortable with out feeling like you are in someone elses home.

Quiet location at end of road--good for a couple.

  • 4 of 5

Once we were able to get real directions we found the condo and moved in for 6 nights. Good bed for me, lovely view complete with iguanas sunning themselves. Location allowed quiet and we could walk to Yah Kol-- a lagoon cenote. Everything needed in kitchen was available though we basically ate out twice a day. Condo is light and airy. No Beach as coral is the norm but snorkeled once or twice and saw a turtle. This condo is on farthest end of Half Moon Bay. Best snorkeling is actually in the middle of the bay (FYI) which you can easily swim to from the condo. Fans and air conditioning (in bedroom) were good for the couple of hot days. Nice base to explore surrounding area from. We had a good time:)

Beautiful location best on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely one bedroom condo with the best location on Akumal Bay. The area in front of the condo is the best snorkelling in the Bay as well. There were so many local attractions once we got here we didn't really even need a car. Great food close by, Yal-Ku for snorkelling and the monkey sanctuary all within biking distance. The bus also drops off at the highway junction from Cancun super handy! Loved my stay and plan to come back

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

The property is at the end of half moon bay. It has an incredible view and felt very safe, however we would have felt better if there was a safety deposit box with all the maids and pool staff around and obvious lots of others had keys. We had to chip some ice on the small freezer to get some food in..I put this on the comment card so that hopefully someone will defrost it.

Being so close to the water, the unit is damp and musty and I had sinus issues after a few days. Noted lots of little ants in kitchen area.

Now for the PROS...the location is amazing, walk to akumal is about 2 k and on the way their are nice restaurants. The beach is great, very rocky and watch for sea urchins but shallow and nice for snorkel.maid service is excellent, please tip they even do the dishes. Pool area is well keep and clean. Beach is groomed and clean around seating area. Unfortunately a little noisy at night with a group of people. A nice breeze with bedroom sliding doors open at night, no need for the AC.

We enjoyed our Week!

My favorite vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 10 day vacation at this lovely Condo in Akumal. The condo had everything we needed. I made breakfast every morning and we enjoyed our morning coffee on the lounge chairs in front of the ocean. The sofa and lounger in the front of the condo were perfect.....because the view was spectacular!

The management company was there for our every need. I had a business situation and they completely solved it with their ability to scan, copy and email for me. We even rented our snorkeling equipment from them.....at almost half the price quoted from another dive shop.

What can i say about daily maid service? Our girl Leila kept our place clean and tidy, along with providing bathroom and beach towels whenever they were needed. We also were provided fresh bottled water daily.

Akumal is a perfect destination. Right down the road is Tulum. We spent several days visiting the Mayan Ruins, along with visiting the many beaches, shops and restaurants. In the opposite direction is Playa Del Carmen. We spent an entire day on 5th ave shopping and dining. Along the quiet road in Akumal are many restaurants, souvenir shops and convenience shops for food and wine. We even watched Monday Night football at a bar just down the road!

Every morning we took a walk for exercise, then finished with a swim in one of the two pools.

My boyfriend loves the ocean and he spent many many hours snorkeling right out front of the condo. I lounged and read my book, enjoying a cocktail or two.

I think our favorite adventure was right out our back door at Yal Ku. A beautiful nature preserve snorkeling lagoon with fresh and saltwater. We saw a million fish. The best part, it was a five minute walk down the street. Dont miss it!!

All in all....my favorite vacation ever!
