Lovely, private Half Moon Bay is home to Playa Caribe #5. Located midway between the points of the bay, the views from your balcony of the second floor center unit are breathtaking. The ocean can be viewed from every room in the condo!
The Playa Caribe building, which contains 12 units and 3 casitas, is beautifully maintained and provides purified water from our own onsite Reverse Osmosis plant. You will never have to worry again about accidentally brushing your teeth with the tap water. The water even tastes good.
Playa Caribe #5 is a luxury condominium providing all the amenities you would have at home: high thread count sheets, full kitchen, pool, central air conditioning, free dedicated Wi-Fi, satellite TV, DVD, iPod player, CD player, etc. Add to this the daily maid service, and you will not want to leave! Just because you have a kitchen doesn't mean you have to cook. A short walk up or down the beach leads to two excellent beachside restaurants: La Lunita and La Buena Vida. There are many restaurants to chose from.
Half Moon Bay is a premiere snorkeling spot. Akumal Bay and Yal-ku Lagoon are both in walking distance from the condo.
Turtles build their nests on the beach and, if you are visiting during the summer months, you may see the babies hatch and make their dash to the water.

About the owner: Hi from John and Annie. We are happily retired* in Bishop, California, after thirty plus years living on Donner Summit, in the mountains above Lake Tahoe, enjoying the skiing, hiking, climbing and coping with massive amounts of snow. Bishop is on the eastern side of the Sierras and is a playground for athletes. We moved here to rock climb year round and to get away from the snow. We love spending August in the condo and enjoying our Half Moon Bay. We are in or on the bay for most of every day. *John was a ski school director and climbing instructor. Annie was a teacher, mainly in kindergarten.
Why the Owner Chose Akumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
One morning in early Jan. 2005, after it had been snowing for a week and road closures were eminent, I decided I needed to get somewhere warm and welcoming. I had a photo of a condo on Half Moon Bay up on the 'frig that a friend had given to us at a Christmas party. After staring longingly at the photo, I started looking for a place to stay on HMB, not having any idea it was high season. Of course, nothing was available. One wonderful travel agent told me she had found a hotel room for us but told me to see if I could find a flight first. Oh, my. By the time I secured the flight and confirmed the hotel room, it was about 2:30 in the afternoon. We ran around throwing things in a couple of suitcases, jumped in the car and made the 3 1/2 hour drive up to Reno with white knuckles. Cars were spinning out all around us. We spent that night in Reno and flew out the next morning. We had our feet in the sand that afternoon. It was love at first sight! Half Moon Bay is an absolutely magical place. One day we wandered into the realtor's just to check out prices. When Tony asked if he could show us some properties, we thought it would be fun to look around. One of the properties was Playa Caribe #5. We fell under the spell of that fabulous view of Half Moon Bay from every room in the condo. We love to share our place with family and friends. It is our hope that our visitors will want to return often and think of it as their private get away.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There seem to be two types of visitors to Half Moon Bay. Some fill every minute of every day with a new adventure: cenotes, diving, driving around, shopping, restaurants, cultural events, ruins, etc. Believe me, there is no end to all one can find to do in this area. We fit in with 'the others' who just love to hang out at Half Moon Bay. We bring about a million books and, when we aren't in the water snorkeling, swimming or SUPing, we have our noses pressed to the pages. The diving is wonderful, but we just can't get enough of the snorkeling. I should add that another bonus to staying at Playa Caribe is meeting some of the very interesting people who stay there often.
