“Peaceful PERFECTION! We didn't want to leave”
Reviewed 2 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Gorgeous place, comfortable, clean and quiet. I thought the view in the photos was amazing, but in real life, it was even better. There were two adjacent rooms with giant floor-to-ceiling windows/sliding doors in the family room and master bedroom overlooking the bay. (I thought one was a reflection, but it was actually the next room!). The master king-size bed was raised high for the best view of the water. There were convenient drawers underneath for storage. The master shower is open and huge with two shower heads and a handheld. There was a glass door with a beautiful frosted design in the toilet area. The double sinks had actual shells for faucets. You can even see the ocean while brushing your teeth.

The other bedroom was at the opposite end with a sliding door balcony overlooking greenery. Another king-size bed (suspended from ropes!). A separate smaller sink/toilet/shower room was off the second bedroom and convenient to the kitchen.

The kitchen was beautiful. High-end appliances. 6-burner stove, modern refrigerator, 2 sinks (one with filtered water), slide-out trash bin. Coffee machine was provided along with little coffee and tea pods, however there was no sugar/sweetener. I liked how there were spices and assorted pantry-type condiments already there.

Note: there is a Costco near the Cancun airport and a few Walmarts in the area, so you can pick up some basics. The Playa del Carmen Walmart was the closest. It had an underground parking lot. The yogurt was expensive, as was sunscreen, and the eggs were not refrigerated.

Stunning turquoise water. A short walk to several restaurants including the beach bar.

The owners provided a wealth of helpful info both ahead of time as well as with a binder in the condo, including where to go, what to do, where to eat, etc. Right on target. We had trouble finding one restaurant that was a "must do" and weren't able to get to the after-hours snorkel access. It's definitely worth it to read their advice.

They've thought of everything. The provided snorkel equipment was perfect. Bring your water shoes. The water is warm and shallow but uneven. Even bottles of sunscreen were provided. I also found a bin with insect spray, more sunscreen, and a variety of other useful items. I loved having convenient access to a washer and dryer. The small elevator was nice, too.

The private rooftop area was unique and amazing. A variety of chairs/sofa/ottoman to sit on plus a loft and a hammock. Gorgeous!

“An amazing condo in beautiful Half Moon Bay”
Reviewed 12 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I can't say enough about our stay in Half Moon Bay. There were four of us (2 adult kids, my husband and me), and we had a fantastic time. These photos don't do the condo justice - it is truly unique, well maintained, and in a spectacular location. The owner was so responsive, both leading up to the vacation and even when we were there, sending us suggestions for dining, snorkeling, and other attractions. Everything she recommended was spot on, including contact info for a cook who came to the condo and cooked us a fantastic meal. We were looking for a quiet place, near the charming town and restaurants in Akumal, but without a tourist vibe. And that's exactly what we got. I would go back again in a minute. You'll love it.

“This is one beautiful place you have to experience for yourself!”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This gorgeous beachfront property was beyond our expectations. My husband and I and our two daughters had heard about this adorable town and wanted to give our children a unique experience. We were not disappointed. We felt so at home in this beautiful penthouse and loved all of the special touches. The lighting is gorgeous and the view, breathtaking. The convenience of having a full kitchen was so helpful with our daughters and there were plenty of great places to dine when we felt like going out. We had an opportunity to go on a sunset sail, visit the Mayan ruins at Coba, swim with the turtles and snorkel right outside our place. Unbelievable!

“AN AMAZING PENTHOUSE CONDO MERE STEPS AWAY FROM THE OCEAN.”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

My wife and two children couldn't have enjoyed a more perfect location and setting in Akumal. We stayed in the penthouse condo and were blown away by the cool design and comfortable amenities. The beach is literally steps away offering kayaking, snorkeling, and other water sports. We simply did not want to come home and, in fact, now view Akumal as our home away from home.

“Wonderful Family Trip in Sleepy Beach Town”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you are looking to get away from all the tourist traps, come to Akumal! Our family of three had a wonderful time in this tiny beautiful town that is off the beaten path. The property itself was everything it was advertised, and the staff was super friendly and helpful. There was so much to do, we could have stayed longer than the week we booked! We enjoyed snorkeling right off our own beach, swimming with turtles a few beaches down, cooking our own meals everyday, laying at the pool right outside, walking to dinner, and shopping nearby. This property is the perfect alternative to those who are not wanting the all-inclusive experience, for people who are looking for a little more adventure. Also, with the FANTASTIC help and guidance of Michaela, our booking agent and acting concierge, our trip came off without a hitch!
