Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Views! Views! Views! Enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the blue Caribbean Sea from the oversized 3rd floor balcony of this spacious 1600 sq. foot beachfront penthouse condominium. Watch from above as turtles pop their heads up for a breath and stingrays glide by in Half Moon Bay. Or better yet, grab your mask and snorkel and join them!
Snorkeling and diving are within easy access. Enter Half Moon Bay right off the beach to see turtles, stingrays, coral and fish. A short walk to the north will take you to the calm, clear water of Yal Ku Lagoon with its large variety of colorful fish. And a short walk to the south you will find Akumal Bay where seeing a turtle is just about guaranteed, along with squid, parrot fish and eagle rays.
There are three dive centers in Akumal, one located right on Half Moon Bay, all with PADI-certified instructors offering sensational reef and cenote cavern dives.
Of course relaxing on the white sandy beach is always another inviting option. Whether you prefer the sun or the shade of a palm tree or palapa, there are plenty of lounge chairs to go around.
Comfortably accommodating up to 8 adults, this unit offers 3 bedrooms, each with its own connecting full bathroom. There is a king sized bed in the master bedroom with a view of the sea. The second bedroom has a full and two twins (bunk beds). And the third bedroom has a queen sized bed, with separate entry from the main condo - which makes it perfect for two couples traveling together who want a little privacy. This third bedroom has its own kitchenette with sink, mini fridge, microwave, blender, coffee maker, dishes and utensils, TV and DVD player, and a patio area which overlooks the lush green jungle and magnificent sunsets. Take just a few steps up to the rooftop seating area for better views of the bay, the sunsets, or star-gazing at night.
This 3 bedroom condo can be rented as a 2 bedroom condo with a lockout to the third bedroom.
The living area of the main unit is very roomy with a V-shaped couch facing the sliding glass doors which open to the balcony overlooking the sea. A large dining table seats eight. There is a fully equipped kitchen complete with large refrigerator, microwave, 4-burner gas stove/oven, coffee maker, toaster, blender, quality pots & pans, knives, utensils, serve ware, dishes and glasses. Daily maid service and fresh drinking water are provided. There are ceiling fans throughout and air conditioning is available in all bedrooms, though most of the time the gentle breezes from the sea make air conditioning unnecessary.
Other amenities in the condo include:
Flat screen TV
DVD player with large selection of movies
Stereo iPod dock
Jacuzzi tub in master bath with view of the sea
Electronic laptop-sized safe to secure valuables
Iron with ironing board
Daily maid service
Cell phone available, small deposit applies.
Centrally located on Half Moon Bay, it is just a short walk to nearby restaurants, including the world famous La Buena Vida swing bar and restaurant, for a rollicking good time. An equal distance in the other direction will take you to La Lunita where you can bury your toes in the sand while enjoying a romantic candlelight dinner.
There is a small market located across the street from the condo for ice, milk, eggs or other last minute items…like ice cream! The nearby village of Akumal also has two grocery stores with a larger selection of items, restaurants, gift shops, farmers market, art studio, jewelry store, and yoga center.
For the adventurous, there are many excursions within minutes from the condo including the magnificent Mayan ruins of Tulum, the caves of Aktun Chen, many fresh water cenotes, Xel-Ha and Xcaret theme parks, Playacar golf course. Fifth Avenue in Playa del Carmen lights up and comes alive at night with its endless shops and restaurants.
May through September is turtle nesting and hatching season and many green and loggerhead turtles return to the beaches of Half Moon Bay to bury their eggs in the sand to incubate for about 60 days. And if you’re lucky, you may also see hundreds of hatchlings making their way to the sea. To observe this act of nature is an absolutely amazing and unforgettable experience.
We have been vacationing in Akumal since 2002 and would love to share our second home with you. We have the knowledge and experience of the area and are eager to make suggestions to make your Akumal vacation enjoyable. If there’s anything you would like to know, just ask!

Perfect on every level
This unit could not have impressed us more. While we've visited Akumal several times we've never stayed. This place had all we were looking for and more. It accommodated our group perfectly (my husband and I, 2 kids 9 + 11, and my brother who used the little bachelor suite). Clean and airy with a view we'll be missing until we visit again! Akumal is always such a nice, quiet destination, and we mixed things up with a couple days trips to Tulum. The gentleman at the desk was so helpful in helping us rent a car each time, only $70 us per day. We enjoyed endless beach days, ate incredible food both at home and out, and spent a full day at Yal Ku Laguna which is always my favourite! Thank you so much to our hosts for sharing this gem, we will recommend highly to friends.
Relax, refresh, renew
Beautiful ocean view. Watch the sunrise over the water from your bedroom with shutters that open to reveal the splendor. Plenty of amenities for the condo and the ocean I.e. snorkel gear, etc. Private chef Daveed, a must try. Daily maid service was great. Location perfect to experience all that Akumal offers-beaches, lagoon, restaurants, etc.
Enjoyed staying here. Daily cleaning was great. Overall cleanliness was fine. On a quiet road. Felt very safe. Shower was terrible especially in the evening no pressure at all. Really a trickle. Beach is very rocky. Half moon bay had good snorkeling. Not enough beach to throw a ball around. Need water shoes to walk in the water due to rocks and coral. Overall a nice stay.
Thank you for your review, David. I truly apologize for the shower problem you had. While the water pressure in our area of Mexico generally cannot compare to that in the States, a trickle is not acceptable and definitely not our norm. Management was notified and resolved the issue, and the guest following your stay said things were fine. I’m glad you had a nice stay in spite of that and hope to have you back sometime.
What's not to Love?
We stayed here for five wonderful days and loved every minute. The location is perfect, the accommodation is extremely attractive and comfortable, and the view is to die for. The kitchen has everything you need too. An added bonus is the daily housekeeping service. We were spoiled! We enjoyed being able to walk to several excellent restaurants, even after dark. As other reviewers have mentioned, the beach right out front is beautiful but a little rocky getting into the water. Just wear water shoes and you'll be fine getting in and having a nice swim. Want to go to a PERFECT beach? A 15 minute walk takes you to idyllic Akumal Bay. A couple of things to be aware of: you'll walk up a considerable number of stairs to get to this perfect third floor condo, so be prepared. Also, there's no pool on site. That's also remedied by walking 3 minutes to La Buena Vida, a wonderful hangout for food and drinks. They have a refreshing pool on site for patrons of the restaurant and bar. Need to have laundry done? There's no washer/dryer in the condo nor in the complex, but if you take it to the management office at La Bahia (who manage this condo), they'll have it done the same day at a very reasonable cost. What more could you ask for? We would stay at this beautiful place again in a heartbeat!
Fantastic condo in the perfect location!
Akumal holds a very special place in mine and my husbands heart, and this holiday with our kids and my parents didn't disappoint.
The condo was perfect! Beautiful location, wonderfully decorated and fully stocked. The views and ocean breezes breathtaking.
I even got to experience a turtle laying her eggs at night and one baby turtle making his journey out to sea.
Thank you Cheryl everything was perfect!!
We had 8 in our party and stayed for 9 days. We had 5 adults and 3 children under 9. Cheryl's place is just as the pictures portrayed. It is perfectly located so we could access all of Akumal. We rented a car to see the sites that were a little distance away and also bikes for a week for local beaches and restaurants. Snorkeling was fun on Half Moon and we were able to see lots of turtles in Akumal Bay. A beautiful area and Cheryl's place allows you to enjoy it all in comfort! Loved it!
