About Charley Lerner

Caryl and I (Charley) live in the Chicago area. We are both psychologists in private practice together. We've always dreamed of having a beachfront home. In 2013 on one of our several trips to Akumal as renters, we were walking down the beach at Half Moon Bay and saw the "For Sale" sign on a house. We couldn't resist and were able to realize our dream. And now we wake up to the sunrise over the Caribbean and the sound of the ocean is it rolls up onto our beach.

Charley Lerner purchased this house in 2013

Why Charley Lerner chose Akumal

We have made many major improvements to the property, including adding the private pool and completely renovating the kitchen.This year we added a gorgeous rooftop deck. Caryl loves to decorate and she has done a wonderful job of making Casa Elangeni into a beautiful and comfortable tropical dream home.

Amazing house in perfect town!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Akumal! The town is so cute and friendly and has just the right amount of people. The house was ideal. The house is RIGHT on the beach with two great outside areas. The top floor is a beautiful, open patio. There is a huge couch and patio chairs. We had 9 people in the house and it was great. Very nice housekeeping and maintenance staff, as well. We really loved our stay and the house was just as advertised.

Fantastic Vacation for the Entire Family

  • 5 of 5

My kids are older and preferred their own room instead of sharing a room at an All-Inclusive.

This worked perfectly for our family of 4.


*The house and views are beautiful

*The Beach is very quiet and at times it feels like it's all yours

*Unexpected surprise: We had maid service everyday and they even did the dishes

*The property manager was available 24x7 and was prompt to solve any issue or question

*Nice cold A/C

*When the sun stops shining on the pool and first floor,you can go to the Sun Deck for another couple hours of sun

*It really is just steps away from the beach

*I loved the brand new Webber grill

*We felt completely safe in a nice quiet neighborhood

*Great snorkeling in this Bay

*Turtles are everywhere -- amazing


*The beach is very rocky. You definitely need beach shoes to protect your feet.


*If you want a sandy beach, just go into the main Akumal beach area

*You don't have to pay a guide to see the Turtles in Akumal Bay. Just walk down the beach towards the Secrets Resort. It's a public beach, so you can drop a bag of towels and snorkel from that location. Within minutes you will be snorkeling with Turtles without paying for a guide. (About 250 Pesos per person savings)

Owner's Response: Thank you Julie! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Isn't the rooftop deck amazing? Our builder did a great job. I wish we could de-rock the bay, but at least the sandy beach is not rocky. Thank you for the kind words about the service team. They do a great job. Come again, we would love to host you! Caryl and Charley
