Details

Playa Blanca, a wonderfully popular three-story condominium is located near the center of beautiful Half Moon Bay. Enjoy your own private balcony or patio to do some turtle watching here in season. Lucky guests can stroll on the quiet beach each morning with a cup of coffee to take in the splendor of the spectacular sunrises. All units have air conditioning in the bedrooms and DSL internet. Some have TV for DVD or VCR, so request these when reserving. The roof top deck offers a marvelous view. Just steps from the door is some fantastic snorkeling in the Bay and time can be easily passed while resting on the covered terraces by watching the pelicans dive for meals or taking a siesta in a hammock.

All the units have Caribbean facing living areas, with fantastic views, no matter what level the condo is on. Each unit is privately owned, so it has it's own personality and style. Unique to most other condominiums, Playa Blanca has a tile bathtub in the master bath, offering a ocean view from the tub/shower! The spacious master bedroom has a large louvered window, which can open up to have a view out to the sea, or be closed for privacy. The second bedrooms enjoy garden views and their own Mexican tiled bathroom with a walk in shower. Enjoy preparing meals in the full kitchen or dine out at many of the fabulous restaurants, which are with-in walking distance of this property. Maid service is 6 times a week and there is a small convenience store nearby. Beach towels, if not provided by the owner, can be checked out at the management office. And, for your peace of mind, Playa Blanca has a security guard.

In Spanish, Playa Blanca means "white beach", which is exactly what awaits you on Half Moon Bay in Akumal, Mexico. Each of the one or two bedroom/bathroom condos have a spectacular view of Half Moon Bay and the Caribbean. The white sandy beach and crystal clear water are just steps away. The living and dining areas are separated by a windowed wall, and there is an eating bar in the open kitchen which has a refrigerator, gas stove, microwave oven, and several small appliances. The master suite includes a king size bed, and a large tub with a shower. The second bedroom, with it's own entrance and bath (and two beds in most units,   three beds in unit 6) can be added to make a two bedroom unit. The master bedroom has folding louvers that can open wide to add to the wonderful airflow and view.

Watch for turtles swimming in the Bay from your patio! A ~ten minute walk to the north will take you to Yalku Lagoon, for some of the finest snorkeling on the coast. A ~ten minute walk to the south will put you in the heart of quaint Akumal Bay.

Enjoy other nearby activities; scuba diving, sport fishing, wind surfing, horseback riding, restaurants, shopping, cultural shows, or just leisurely days on the beach.

 

All guests at Playa Blanca can enjoy the gorgeous Caribbean sunsets on the rooftop terrace. Entertain guests while you count the endless stars or enjoy the solitude gazing out over the crystal clear waters.

 

Half Moon Bay is a guest favorite, and after staying at Playa Blanca (White Beach), you will understand why!

 

We will be offering a 15% discount on bookings while there is construction next door.

We will be offering a 15% discount for guests booking PB6 during construction. This is the compensation for the risk that there possibly might be construction noise next door. No refunds. This will make it the lowest priced condo in Akumal I believe. 
 
We only have a few weeks that Gail is allowing us to rent it out - 2-3 weeks at the holidays, and 1-2 weeks mid Feb, and we can hope that the construction is slow and quiet during these peak weeks anyway - as they will get pressure from all the locals/managers/tourists etc. 
 
I'll post this on the PB 6 calendar. 
 
Playa Blanca and Playa Caribe will have construction noise for the next 2 years as Nahil Phase 2 and 3 are built on Half Moon Bay, as they sandwich the lots.

Gail,
Yes, I totally agree, that is what I meant to say.
 
I am also fine with the 15% discount, and only working on moving them IF they are miserable once they arrive, rather than give that option upfront to anyone who asks. 
 
I don't know that people can take advantage of it - the 15% is a great deal to take the risk that it might, or might not be noisy next door. In your case since you are there most of the time - it should not be much of an issue for your unit. Only on the couple weeks you are kind enough to move out so we can get folks booked. 
 
Keep us up on what happens noise wise. Safe travels as you move south of the border soon.

Lisa,
 
I am aware of other arrangements like this and also of people who took advantage of this in an unethical manner.  I think a 15% discount is enough and people should be prepared for the possible interruption.  If they choose to move to another location that is more expensive, then I think they personally need to make up the difference, not me or you.  Gail

Gail and Jim,  
 
In case you were not aware of it yet, construction has just begun on the new building next to the Playa Blanca. The building is being constructed further back from the water than Playa Blanca, so luckily should not obstruct the view, however, there may be some noise disturbance which will effect the enjoyment of our potential renters.... (Gail - you'll have to keep us informed on what it is like...)
 
During this construction, which is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2017, other units at PB and nearby are offering a 15% discount on all reservations, with  the option to move to a different building should the renters be concerned about noise.  If they choose to move to a building that is more expensive than Playa Blanca, then the difference in rental value will be due. Can we also offer this to our PB 6 guests?

After renting Playa Blanca for many years, we were delighted with the changes this year. We were also thrilled that the construction (noise) was non existent.

We have visited Akumal many times, this is the first time we have stayed in Playa Blanca. We all loved Playa Blanca! The beach was just an extension of the condo. It was great to be able to walk right out the door and snorkel in Half Moon Bay. We read, napped and ate on the beach, relaxing either in the sun or shade. Playa Blanca #3 is light, bright and airy. Folding doors from the master bedroom open out to the living area and to the beach, such a beautiful and relaxing view. The kids had their own space at the back of the condo, so we all had plenty of room. The staff was friendly and helpful. I have to admit, everyone used the wireless internet some, it was nice to be able to stay in touch with those back home. We even watched the TVs one night - and it helped us learn Spanish with the subtitles - educational TV!

We had a wonderful time this past March and highly recommend Playa Blanca & Caribbean Fantasy. We have stayed in several condos on Half Moon Bay, and Playa Blanca is one of our favorites. We'll send our friends to you, and see you soon to book our next trip to Akumal!

Happy New Year to you all. Just wanted to touch base and tell you that we had a wonderful week with our kids and grandkids staying at La Bahia and Playa Blanca.The weather was great and lots of things were done.Took the Robinson Crusoe boat trip,went diving and did lots of snorkling. Now we are at Yalku Cai #4 and are loving it.The weather really turned cold this week so we've done some shopping and tonight will go to dinner at Lol Ha as it is jazz night. Thanks again for your help.
