~WELCOME TO OUR DREAM: SeaScape~

Offering the utmost in Caribbean charm and comfort, this spacious fifteen-hundred square foot two bedroom, two bath condominium is located in beautiful Akumal. On the north end of Half Moon Bay, this ocean front condominium is just a few feet away from a white sand beach, and just a few steps further to the water, and a stunning coral reef.

Opposite the beach in the courtyard, beautiful gardens surround a large pool that includes a lap lane. It provides a shady lush contrast to the surf and beach. The owner, a professional landscape designer has transformed her garden area with many unique flaura of the region, including orchids and citrus trees. You will be surrounded by beauty.

The condominium, nestled between the gardens and the beach, on the ground floor, has floor-to-ceiling windows. This provides expansive views to the beach and bay, and along with the extra tall ceilings create an extra sense of spaciousness to the already large open design. As a second living area, the beach-side covered patio is fully screened and in addition to its comfortable seating has a stunning sea-life wall mural of Half Moon Bay! Simply step outside to the lawn area with your own PRIVATE BEACH LOUNGERS and then 5 steps and you are on the beach.

You know you've reached SeaScape just by it's entrance which has a custom stained glass transome depicting its name. Stepping inside, you are immediately transfixed by the FULL view of Half Moon Bay and our beach. The living and dining areas are designed for maximum viewing and living pleasure towards this view.

Throughout the condo special touches abound. SeaScape is decorated and outfitted using the best of local materials and craftsmanship: including stained glass, handpainted Talavera ceramics, mexican handblown glass, and sustainable local hardwood furniture.

There are two king-size bedrooms with full bathrooms. Both bedrooms have special orthopedic mattresses and extreme padding, combined with 450ct egyption cotton linens and multiple pillow types provide the most comfortable sleeping in ALL OF AKUMAL. The master bedroom is done in a contemporary caribbean color scheme and have mexican mohagany closets. The attached master bathroom is spa-like done in local marbles, natural sea glass and shell has a custom mohagany vanity with plenty of drawers and space.

The guest bedroom is decorated has custom headboard crafted of exotic wood tiles from antique ship wrecks; and a hand carved mahogany dresser is sure to delight guests. It has a private patio and seating looking into our expansive gardens. The second bathroom boasts an onyx chunk stone sink, handmade tiles, and local marble walls and floor. All rooms have large ceiling fans including the baths. For additional comfort though, A/C is available throughout the condo.

The kitchen has beautiful custom made Mexican mahogany cabinetry with plenty of drawers and cabinets. The expanded countertops with cut stone backsplashes, new full size appliances, and double sink provide convience and space for cooking and bartending at the same time! Of course, SeaScape's kitchen is well outfitted for all types of entertaining.

All amenities are provided for a quiet, relaxing but fulfilling vacation. As this is the owner's private retreat, there are many extras that won't be found in most other condos. Special features are throughout, just too many to list.

Located on one of the more private beaches in Akumal, the condo's has personal beach loungers, tables and chairs; Palapas and beach loungers are available for your use. Step off into the water and enjoy some of the best snorkeling in the area.

Akumal is sixty miles south of Cancun International Airport, south on the four lane, newly renovated highway 307. Half Moon Bay (HMB), we are located, 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 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. This truly is the perfect place to create lifetime memories!

About Diana

I have always loved vacationing to and experiencing different cultures. And for some reason could never get enough beach or snorkeing time! We dreamed of owning our own 2nd home, and when we came to Akumal in 1995, it set the standard for our dream. We wanted to create our little slice of paradise with all the ideas that we had gathered, and providing the perfect casual, luxury getaway for ourselves and our guests.

Diana purchased this condo in 2004

Why Diana chose Quintana Roo

Our little complex, La Sirena is special in that we have double the space that other properties in HMB. This allows us to have a wonderful large pool, as well as gardens and no crowds on our beach. The set up of our building is such that it feels more like attached houses, not condos.

What makes this condo unique

We love sitting anywhere in the condo and having a fabulous view and gardening on our grounds. We love to go snorkeling right out in our bay, seeing the baby fishes that have just hatched, and swimming with the turtles. And then in the evenings at dusk walking the beach watching the flocks of pelicans fly inland for the night, and then grilling out on our beach and watching the sun go down.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have been visiting Akumal for over 10 years, and progressively fallen in love with the area. So we decided to find and buy our dream beach place, hence SeaScape! We love the tranquility and naturalness, all the colors of the Caribbean, being able to just step off the beach porch in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the reef creatures, and being lulled to sleep with the sound of the surf. We hope that you will join us in our little piece of paradise.

Beautiful home with amazing views, lovely details, lush garden, easy beach access

  • 5 of 5

We had high hopes for this condo and it still managed to exceed our expectations. From the moment you walk into the beautiful condo, you enjoy dramatic views of Akumal Bay from nearly every room. The condo is incredibly well designed so you can enjoy morning coffee or evening sunset on the screened in porch with full views of the Bay, listening to the waves and the palm trees. During the heat of the day, you can enjoy the views from the air conditioned living room, kitchen, dining area and master bedroom. The condo itself is also beautiful, full of colorful pottery, artwork and fabrics, with rich hardwood doors and lovely stone tiles. This condo absolutely feels like a home, one that the owner takes great joy in decorating and making welcoming without overdoing it. The pool was also lovely for swimming laps and just relaxing in, and the garden is beautiful and welcoming when you arrive. Finally, the onsite staff are very helpful and do provide daily cleaning service. We would not change a thing about this condo and hated to leave.

Wonderful family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great spot for our week in Akumal. We have two daughters who are 6 and 8, they loved the pool, spent hours playing and made fast friends with other kids who stayed in another condo. We spent a few days at Akumal beach and it was great to have a cooler and umbrella available. We also took a day trip to the Coba ruins and Cenote Zacil-Ha which was easy to get to!

Great quiet spot on the beach! We enjoyed snorkeling each day and saw something different each time...many tropical fish, eels, brittle stars, too many species to mention! Great staff at the condo and everything needed for cooking and a relaxing stay. Wonderful restaurants available with fantastic seafood!

Thank you for making this vacation easy to plan and for a relaxing break from our everyday lives!

Family of 4 retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo with everything you could need. Wow! Everything promised is delivered. We brought our 2 boys 15 and 13 and had an absolutely wonderful time. We snorkeled in all 3 bays (that is the only thing you should bring--snorkel gear). All the extras are just perfect. The beds are great. Beach towels provided. Truly a wonderful place. Can't wait to go back!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seascape. Beautiful view of the bay. Swimming off the beach or in the pool. Restaurants within walking distance. Great snorkeling in the nearby lagoon. A very peaceful place.

we are on it ! Half Moon Bay
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!
