Casa Caribe: A beautiful home in a perfect coastal location

We had a family vacation with 6 people, including my 7 year old son. The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in the main house, plus a one bedroom/bath casita at the front of the property. We could imagine that the casita would be great if we had teenagers and we wanted to just get 'em out of the way...

The house is large, comfortable, has everyone one needs. One enters the front gate to see a lush garden, cute fresh-water plunge pool and lovely front facade. Go inside and feel happy that you've chosen this house. Go out one of the sliding glass doors to the gorgeous back patio that backs directly on to the Caribbean shore. Your kids will enjoy the daily visits from wild iguana and hermit crabs. Climb one of the palm trees to pick a coconut.

Amazing sunrises over the Caribbean, the sound of the ocean, ocean breeze, iguana and hermit crabs. 5 minute walk to Akumal playa, shopping and restaurants, 5 minute walk to Halfmoon Bay restaurants. 10 minute drive to Yal-ku lagoon for gorgeous snorkeling. 20 minute drive North of Tulum.

Condo on the water: Entrance to La Sirena

We had a great time. read of one guy who could not find the place though, so here's a photo of what you look for from the street. Very deceptive. You would never know the gardens and pool that await you just inside!

It's quite inexpensive. Four people could stay here for 30 bucks a night per person because it has two bedrooms.
Check for high and low season rates.

Sunset View: One more La Sirena Tid Bit

usually, when you stay in the maya riviera, in playa or tulum, you don't see a sunset, as they are further west. At La Sirena, depending on what floor you are on (there are three floors) You can see a sunset from the small terraces off the bedrooms. In this one there is a small terrace off the master, with chairs and a table, and just a standing terrance off the guest room, but they face west, so you can see a sunset! Since you are almost on the point, you can also see the beach around the point from each of these terraces~sorry i didnt' capture that.sunset, but here's the view from the master

This place has a great pool, although it's not on the ocean. Views out both sides of the condo. You can snorkel out (be sure to bring booties anywhere in half moon bay)
And in season you can check out turtle breeding.
One cool thing is that turtle season is low season so the rates are really good.

Look at this view!: La Sirena

Imagine waking up to THIS every morning!
I think each unit is different, but in at least two of them the windows open up completely in the middle to bring you incredible breezes. You can use the screen or not. It's almost like you are outside.
this is the view with the camera on the window ledge!

La Sirena Condos: Your own piece of heaven with a view

This small set of condo's. I believe 14 units are perfect if you want to snorkel out and snorkel in, as they are RIGHT on the coral reef with a concrete walking pier that gets you right into the water. Booties are a MUST.
At most of othe places in Half moon Bay you will have a small sandy beach, but the moment you are in the water you must have Booties because it is not sand bottom. This is not a negitive. It means the moment you are in the water, you will see all sorts of sealife you wont see in a sandy bottom sea.

The pool here is quiet and behind the condo. you will have no problem getting a chair as most people are on the man made beach which is cleaned and groomed every morning. you have no crowds to contend with, you never have any in akumal anyway, except in front of the resorts. If you just NEED to be on a natural sandy beach, one is right next door through a pathway in the rocks. It is not private property, all mexico beaches are public.
