About the owner: We are a couple that grew up in New England and have called Washington state home since 2000. We currently work abroad for the US State Department and recently bought this amazing condo in Akumal. We look forward to spending a lot of time here with family and friends.
Why the Owner Chose Akumal: We fell in love with the area and when we saw the incredible view from the large balcony and living room from this penthouse condo, we knew we wanted to buy this magical haven. Roberto, the long standing property manager who is on-site, is a gem with a long history of feedback from renters as being a helpful, reliable and fantastic resource for renters.
We love the laid back feeling of the area, the rich and healthy reef with incredible snorkeling and diving just in front of the place. We love the sound of the surf and lack of motor noise, yet also appreciate that fun motor and water sport activities are available not far up or down the coastline for our older children and future grandchildren. It is also a great launching point from which to explore the richness that the Yucatan peninsula has to offer, including Tulum and Coba Mayan ruins and Sian Ka'an nature preserve.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The bird watching in the jungle area behind us and the snorkeling right in front of us is among the best in the world. The coral reef is healthy and thriving. Turtles nest on the beach in summer and watching them hatch is an incredible experience!

Our sons enjoyed first time snorkeling off the beach, and we were blessed to witness a nest of Sea Turtles hatch!! There were many beautiful species of birds in the trees in addition to all the amazing sea creatures to discover. The community feel…
