  • A Rare Find

    "We have rented vacation homes before but this property is truly a rare find. It is so beautiful and the attention to detail is simply incredible. The additional bonus of having a friendly staff keep things in order was absolutely wonderful and made this two week vacation for our family of ten especially relaxing. We followed most of the suggestions in the "bible", a big folder with wonderful ideas on where to find the best beaches and cenotes, special restaurants close by and all sorts of other secrets that you could not find in any travel book. It became our guide for the entire two weeks and never disappointed. And if you feel the need for some peace and quiet, you can easily retreat to your room upstairs and relax without hearing a sound from downstairs. By then, Wilma has changed the sheets and towels, the bathrooms sparkle and, if you are lucky, you can watch a monkey swing through the jungle by the pool or fall asleep with the iguanas resting on the wall near the entrance of the villa. It could not get any better. You feel safe and well taken care of in this very special place. Thank you for sharing your home with us."

  • Beautiful Condo and Amazing View!

    "My husband and I just had a wonderful experience staying in this Condo. The view is just spectacular! beautiful and private; you are definitely hit with the wow factor as soon as you are standing in front of that magnificent view and enjoying the cooling breeze. The condo has absolutely everything you may need for your stay. It truly felt like home away from home. It is extremely cozy, comfortable, right in front of Akumal Bay, in a very serene section, but a couple of minutes away from the main action of Akumal Beach, where people go to swim with the turtles. We stayed for 9 days, and probably six out of those nine days we had the beach to ourselves. You can opt to swim right in front of your condo and enjoy serene privacy, or you can drive approximately 5 minutes to the entrance to swim with the turtles. Response from Whitney was prompt via email, and she and her husband did everything to make our stay at the condo a great experience. The Wi-Fi signal was strong throughout and we didn’t have any blackouts. There is no conventional cable in the condo, but the main TV has Roku for the premium channels like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, HBO GO, Pandora, etc.; however, you need to already have an account with those services to be able to watch their content through the Roku. I happened to bring my Chromecast which I connected to one of the TV’s HDMI and it worked great; again, the Wi-Fi signal was strong enough to seamlessly cast from my smartphone/laptop to the TV. With the windows open, the tropical breeze flows deliciously throughout the condo and there were only a few nights that we felt the need to turn on the AC in the main area. There is already drinking water in the Condo which was replenished by the cleaning lady, Letty, whom was wonderful. We procured her services to have our clothes washed a couple of days before our return. She will knock on the door to ask if you would like cleaning service, and it is up to you how often you want it. We asked her to come by on the days we knew we were going to be out all day, and opted out for those days that we wanted to sleep in late and just relax. It was an amazing experience, perfect for romantic getaway and I recommend this condo for anyone that doesn’t have a problem going up the stairs to the third floor. I absolutely assure you that you will love it as much as we did."

  • Outstanding Stay at a Beautiful Location

    "This condo is one of the best on Half Moon Bay. Has everything one needs for a great stay. This is not my first stay at this condo (have stayed at least 3 other times) but I am always pleasantly reminded how great the décor is and the view. I will also say that the Staff that manages and cares for La Bahia is the best. This trip the Security Guard asked if we wanted to be awakened at night if there was "turtle action" on the beach. We said yes and he faithfully came to get us no matter the time of night. As a result we saw turtle hatch and turtles laying eggs. Very pleasant and engaging young man and it was fun trying to learn enough Spanish to communicate with him. The owner of this condo is also fabulous to work with. Love the place, love the condo. Please do wear your life vests and snorkel with a buddy! Unfortunately while we were there an older gentleman staying at a different condo apparently had a medical issue and passed away while snorkeling. There were many good Samaritans that helped and the Staff at La Bahia did what they could as well, even though the person wasn't staying at La Bahia. It was a very difficult situation for the family and all of us on the beach when it occurred."

  • Great location on the beach

    "We had a great time at Casa Palapa in August 2016. Prior to staying at the property, my biggest reservation was that the owner didn't offer online booking through VRBO's checkout so I wasn't eligible for the "Book with Confidence Guarantee." The pricing seemed competitive for the area, so I felt uneasy about not having the guarantee in this age of scams, but we went forward anyway. Thankfully everything was as pictured and as described with only positive surprises. The home is super clean (the cleaning woman comes every morning but Sunday and spends hours), and the view is amazing! It felt like our own private beach and we did not have any issues with excessive seaweed in August. Snorkeling was great directly in front of the house. The man who takes care of the grounds raked the sand every morning and cut us fresh coconuts to drink from the beautiful grove of coconut trees that surprised us as being the front yard of the house. We didn't see any turtles, but saw tracks in the morning of where some came up to the house overnight. We paid $75 for Pio's wife Luz to cook us dinner the first night. We had 5 adults, and she gave enough food (chicken, cauliflower, rice, veggies, pico and guac for appetizer) for 10 and it was tasty. Unfortunately the fridge didn't feel reliable enough to hold leftovers (I think we lost power one night possibly). My ONLY complaint is really for Mexico in August. It's hot, so the house got very warm and the only place to find relief is in the breezy Palapa (very comfortable there) or the air conditioned upstairs bedrooms. The owner mentioned he is considering putting in a 1st floor A/C unit. If that happens, zero complaints on the house. We may be back some day!"
