About the property

Half Moon Bay Beachfront: Luscious 2/2 Penthouse Retreat w/ New Kitchen +++


ALL beachfront properties have good views of Half Moon Bay, but this condo has superlative views. Actually impossible to photograph as they are almost 270 degrees. Post card perfect!

Originally built for one of the first land owners of Akumal, this condo is uniquely situated that it has the ultimate in Caribbean viewing for this area; beautiful towards both the south (towards Akumal Bay) and also to the north (Yal Ku). On a very clear day, you can see all the way up the coast to Puerto Aventuras, about 10 miles north. Combine this location, with Azul Cielo's extra expansive outdoor spaces, make this condo a uniquely special place.

Azul Cielo is located in the La Sirena condominium complex, which is on the northern end of Half Moon Bay. Half Moon Bay is now considered 'north' Akumal, just north of Akumal Bay, and where the majority of beach front condos and houses are, but NO large hotels! La Sirena is known for it's extra large pool (even with a lap lane), it's expansive gardens, and the largest beach area (double the width) of other complexes in Akumal. And just off our beach is a stunning coral reef providing the best snorkeling in miles.

Azul Cielo, is on the third floor, and has floor-to-ceiling windows for a complete unobstructed view across the full width of the condo. The beach-side covered patio is outfitted with fotons for fabulous lounging, and also dining, making it into a complete outdoor, but protected california lifestyle. Sleep, eat, or just be mezmerized by the best sunset views in Akumal.

The open floor plan consists of a large open combined kitchen and living area. The recent remodeled kitchen boasts South American granite, and cabinetry made of local hardwoods. It is fully outfitted with full size appliances, and everything needed for making your culinary favorites while gazing at the bay.

The condo has two large bedrooms along with two bathrooms. Each bedroom has king size beds with super comfortable orthopedic mattresses and pillows. The garden side bedroom has an on-suite bathroom, whose shower boasts a large window down into the gardens.

Just off the garden sized bedroom is a another large outdoor area, replete with seating. Views here are of our wonderful gardens and pool, the jungle and more of the Caribbean.

Azul Cielo is fully outfitted for a wonderful relaxing vacation. She has air conditioning throughout, as well as ceiling fans in every room, secured wireless internet, daily maid service, and English based satellite TV.

Our complex, La Sirena, is known for its wonderful tropical gardens which attract migrating butterflies, hummingbirds and even the occasional monkey! Within the gardens is our large pool boasting Caribbean blue tiles and even a large lap lane. This is a favored place to relax after time spent on the beach and sand.

La Sirena is located on the northern end of Half Moon Bay, now called North Akumal. As two lots were combined to create our complex, we have double the space AND BEACH as other complexes having the same amount of units.

Akumal is sixty miles south of Cancun International Airport, south on the four lane, newly renovated highway 307. Half Moon Bay (HMB) s considered the 'original' Akumal, along with Akumal Bay. HMB is where most of the beachfront houses and small condo complexes are; and is a designated ecological zone, therefore it is very low density. So while you are close to everything you are in the middle of nowhere as it is very private and quieter. North Akumal is a quiet, laid-back area focused on our beautiful bay and beaches, snorkeling and pristine diving. There are Mayan ruins, golf, nature parks, cenotes, even active nightlife.

Everything is PROVIDED for a stress free vacation, including: FREE Wifi, FREE parking, FULL maid service, UNLIMITED bottled water, FULL AC, satellite TV and of course ALL Linens including beach towels, and so much more!

At Azul Cielo you can have the perfect combination of a relaxing yet invigorating vacation!

About Diana Harris

I started coming Akumal with friends several years ago. Initially I would come here as a way to decompress from am intense work schedule. But I fell in love with the area: the culture, the food, the people, the flora and fauna. I learned how to snorkel in our Half Moon Bay, and it has now become my passion. This area has introduced me to a complete new world.

Diana Harris purchased this condo in 2015

Why Diana Harris chose Akumal

From coming to Akumal, I became friends with several other owners in the complex. I was looking at several other places; but always comparing to ours and left wanting.

And then my condo became available and I jumped!

For my particular condo, I love my beach porch; it's a complete living area within itself. I become mesmerized by my views, sometimes sleeping outside on my futons. And although I am not a cook, I enjoy entertaining with my new kitchen.

What makes this condo unique

There are so much more space in our complex that people don't feel on top of each other. We can be on the beach area or also in the gardens and around our pool. Our complex is also unique in that no one is up against the road.

Our beach faces south and west so we have the very best sunset views. It has become a tradition for resident sunset happy hour on our beach. Our location is perfect!

Beautiful property - view is amazing. Beach out front is difficult with kids (very rocky and there are sea urchins), but the private beach in town is gorgeous and well worth the $5 admission. Pool is lovely after a long day of touring the area. Would highly recommend - can’t wait to go back!

Gorgeous property; lovely condo

Diana provided helpful information. Her home was a home away from home. Coffee on the balcony was delightful. Friendly, helpful staff on property.

Serene Bliss

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with this property the moment I arrived. It is beautiful, well maintained and clean. The views of Half moon Bay are spectacular! I felt like I was staying in the penthouse suite. Maneuvering the 3 flights of stairs was challenging especially with luggage and groceries, but worth the effort. Daily exercise you know. No pain, no gain.

Great place to relax and enjoy the Caribbean

  • 5 of 5

My family (including 3 teenage daughters) loved this low key location. Great snorkeling steps from condo (bay or lagoon), easy walk to restraunts and nice long walk to town. We really enjoyed all of the outdoor spaces in the complex and especially the balconies in the condo. Diana’s plants really give the balconies a tropical vibe! Diana gave us great instructions and tips, and the condo staff was very attentive.

This is truly a lovely Mexican Carribe home. The sounds of the waves can be heard from the garden terrace and master bedroom. The front of the home is dominated by full unobstructed views of the water. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking. The oceanside terrace is so private, and comfortabley furnished( complete with loved plants) that you don’t really want to leave.

Beautiful area of Mexico; lovely condo with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Loved Akumal and this condo. It has everything you need, especially excellent AC if you go to Mexico in July like I did. Very clean and well kept, it was nice to have a housekeeper do the dishes. The kitchen has a blender which we used to make our margaritas and plenty of other things that were a really nice touch (coffee filters, cooking spray, etc.). Diana was the best hostess giving us a nice VRBO tip sheet which covered everything from directions to condo, good stores to grocery shop at, her favorite ATM's and restaurant, and more. We found the patio on the garden side to be excellent for sitting in the evening for that lovely breeze and view; it was just too humid to sit outside on the back patio facing the ocean in July. Condo has beautiful gardens around the lovely pool, if you happen to stay at one of the other condos facing the garden it would be fantastic too. The ocean is only steps away. I do recommend water shoes b/c the water has rocks and things that you wouldn't want to step on in bare feet, but water is clear and we saw a turtle first day we went snorkeling. The condo has a nice sand area at the edge of water held up by retaining wall, the sand is beautiful and white. This place is really fabulous, I highly recommend it.

We are ON IT!!!
Car: not necessary

We are on Half Moon Bay (HMB) which is considered the 'original' Akumal, along with Akumal Bay. HMB, now called 'North Akumal' is where most of the beach front houses and small condo complexes are; and is a designated ecological zone, therefore it is very low density. So while you are close to everything you feel as though you are in the middle of nowhere because its very private and quieter.

All types of water sports are available, including deep sea fishing and swimming with dolphins. There are also many close by activities, Nature Parks, Hiking/Walking, and Museums. Being a center of strong ecological conservation, Akumal has incredible snorkeling and some of the best diving in the Caribbean, being on the Meso-American reef (2nd longest reef system in the world), With an established environmental center Centro Ecologica Akumal (CEA), you also have opportunities to various eco-tourism activities such as turtle monitoring.

In addition to the water sports and adventure parks, there are many culture activities, as our area has many Mayan ruins close by, the major ones being Coba, Tulum, Muyhuil, and Ek-Balam.

We truly are the center of a great vacation spot!
