  • Beautiful, comfortable condo, ideal for family with young children

    "Our family is wrapping up a fabulous week on Half Moon Bay. This unit is tastefully decorated and has every amenity we could have wanted. We especially appreciated the children's sized life jackets, pool noodles and boogie boards, perfect for our kids to play in the water and use snorkeling. There were also several pairs of adult fins which was great as I didn't bring my own pair (husband did). The beds were quite possibly the best part. They are firm mattresses but feel like clouds thanks to the memory foam topper. Even our kids said it was the best they'd slept in a long time. The kitchen is small but well-stocked with good quality cooking items so we were able to cook quite a few of our own meals. We also enjoyed several meals at Buena Vida up the beach, where they have an even larger swimming pool than Lol Kanaab, a fun alternative for our kids when the bay got too rough and the condo pool lost its luster (a very nice pool but small). We all loved snorkeling in Half Moon Bay our first day, when visibility was perfect and the water was glassy calm, but the winds picked up after that and it was too rough. We snorkeled instead at Yal-ku up the road and another day in Akumal Bay, which was also rough but clear enough to see quite a few sea turtles. Sandra was always very responsive with our questions and provides a nice folder of local information in the condo, which was very useful. We hope to return to enjoy this gorgeous, tranquil spot again soon."

  • 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."

  • Perfect spot for our family

    "We stayed at the condo March 30 - April 7, 2016. We are a family of 5 with 3 boys 9 and under. This was our first time renting through VRBO and our first time travelling to Mexico. We had a fabulous time - and would recommend it to everyone. Owners - Peggy was super helpful with answers to our questions before we booked and with maps and lots of information after we booked. While we were there, they were doing some work on the septic system in an adjacent building - Peggy was right on top of it, notifying us that it was going on and asked us to let her know if it interfered with our vacation (which it didn't). Condo amenities - the condo itself was well equipped with everything we needed - basic spices for cooking, along with pots, pans, dishes, bottled water, etc.; beach towels and shower towels; wifi; bedding (although we brought a small blow-up mattress for our youngest child, so he could sleep in the same room as his brothers, rather than on the couch), etc.. The pools were lots of fun and my boys spent at least some of every day in them. For the most part, we had the pools to ourselves, which was also very nice. The grounds are kept very neat and tidy and everyone was friendly and helpful. Location - close enough to the amenities in Akumal (grocery, dive shop, souvenirs, etc.), but far enough away that we didn't have to deal with the crowds of people coming in to see the turtles (unless we were going to see them ourselves - but go early or late in the day ... a lot less people). Plus, able to walk 2 minutes to Yal-Ku for snorkelling (a huge highlight!!). Also easy driving distance to Aktun Chen (kids LOVED the zip lining, cave walk and cenote); Coba and Tulum; Xel-Ha (although we didn't go - too much other stuff to see and do). Finally, I can't talk about the location, without mentioning the snorkeling right outside your door. Fantastic! My kids were new to snorkeling, but had no problems exploring the reefs in Half Moon Bay. Not as many fish as Yal-Ku, but lots of very interesting coral formations and other see creatures. The rocky shore is also lots of fun to explore. Overall, we had a fantastic time and would not hesitate in coming back!!"

  • Better than the photos

    "I stayed with my spouse and best friend the first week of August 2016. This place was so nice and what a view. The photos don't do it justice. The climate controlled air conditioning was perfect. Ceiling fans throughout. The beds were so comfortable. Other than food, we needed nothing else. The staff on site were absolutely wonderful. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone!"
