Akumal Breakers is a magical 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath stone beachfront villa located in South Akumal, Mexico, which is the jewel of the Riviera Maya. South Akumal is located 1 hour south of the Cancun Airport between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Besides having one of the best beaches in the area, the quiet neighborhood also has 24 hour security and a gated entrance.
Akumal Breakers has one of the best beach locations in all of S. Akumal. The white sandy beach is located only 25 steps from the villa and is great for outdoor games, building sand castles or just chilling out all day and listening to the waves hit the breakers. The villa also features a large pool, plenty of beach chairs and two kayaks with an excellent entry into the Caribbean.
If your kids want to enjoy a "real pool", then Akumal Breakers is the perfect place. The villa also has a private hot and cold outdoor shower which is a great way to clean up the children after the beach. The adults love it too!
The villa is as stunning as its location on the beach. The entire villa exterior is covered with hand cut “Piedra Maya Vista” stone making this one of the most unique and distinguished beach front properties in the area. All of the floors are made of Terracotta tile accented with Mayan wood. The villa also has a unique collection of Mexican artwork and craftsmanship including paintings, wood carvings and Onyx lamps.
Akumal Breakers has a smooth sloping walkway around the side of the villa so that people with walking disabilities don’t have to climb steps to enter the living area or the beach bedroom. Although the villa is not officially ADA approved, a wheelchair can pass from the street to the living room and the beach bedroom via a gradually sloped concrete pathway.
Two of the four bedrooms are considered private suites and are located on the second level. The “North Suite” has a king size bed, private ocean front balcony, private bath and a small safe in the closet. The “South Suite” has a king size bed, private ocean front balcony, private bath, and an IPod player. The "South Suite" is oversized and provides ample space for a crib or an additional Aero Bed (both are available).
On the main floor, you will find the “Beach Room” which has a king size bed overlooking the pool and the beach. There is also a large safe in the closet. The adjacent “Garden Room” is great for children. It has two full size beds, board games, a Sony PlayStation2, DVD player and TV. The Beach and Garden rooms share a large bathroom.
The villa has an on-site staff that keeps the interior and exterior in perfect shape. They can also prepare your meals for a fee and they are licenced massage therapists.
We require a signed agreement plus a refundable $500 damage deposit. We also collect 19% local hospitality tax.
You're going to love Akumal Breakers!
We've traveled to more than 40 countries across 6 continents and lived in Mexico City for over 7 years. We have seen the best in hospitality management and we expect this at our private villa. We absolutely love the Mexican and Mayan culture and we certainly love Akumal Breakers.
Akumal is the jewel of the Riviera Maya and South Akumal is as good as it gets. Akumal Breakers, one of the first villas built in South Akumal, is located on one of the best spots on this beautiful, quiet, semi-private beach.
Each morning, we enjoy our coffee while listening to the birds and watching the clouds dance among the spectacular sunrise. Mid day views of the glistening Caribbean are unmatched.
Natural Sea Grape trees provide shade only steps from the ocean which is great when watching the children. We have a large solar heated pool with non slip stone deck and we love the hot water outdoor shower.
At night, we walk the beach in hopes of seeing Mother Nature at her best as large turtles often lay their eggs on our beach.
As owners, we set high expectations for our trained and respectful on-site staff which is why we have a very high number of returning guests.
We are one day back stateside from the best family vacation we have every had much having to do with living in ‘Akumal Breakers paradise’ for the past 8 days. My wife and three adult children and their wives and three grandchildren. Absolutely perfect accommodations. The owners couldn't have been more charming and accommodating from our first contact. When we walked in we couldn’t believe the immediate beauty inside and out. We loved the walk-out bedroom on the main level. The outside covered eating area sitting right on the edge of the pool was just beautiful only to be outdone by the luscious palm trees and shrubbery while sitting area ocean side on Adirondack chairs and hammocks and chase lounges. Walking the beach, swimming, building sand castles, snorkeling, and kayaking filled our beautiful sunny days. The beaches and restaurants of Akumal and Tulum were just a short distance either direction from Akumal Breakers. My sons and I had a very fun morning at a spendy but beautiful golf course which was located directly across the highway.
Anything that we had for forgot to bring or merely wished we had was miracusiouly available. It seems there is nothing that they forgot about. We had Hors d'oeuvres and Happy Hour at sunset on the roof each evening. Unbelievablbly spectacular views in every direction.
There are a married couple that live in a separate home at the back of the property that caretake Akumal Breakers. They are the ones who really make it all come together. The place was immaculate when we walked in. Mirna was in everyday when it was convenient for us and the place was immaculate once again. Luis did the same to outside everyday. They cooked for us whenever we asked which included them shopping for the groceries at the store. Every meal was delicious. Then as if that wash;t enough, it turns out they are both licensed masseuses. A massage on the beach was just flat out over the top. Don’t miss it.
If there is a better place than this in Akumal we didn’t see it. We will be back.
If you are reading reviews wondering which vacation property to rent, your look should stop here with Akumal Breakers. This was hands down the very best vacation my wife and I have ever taken (and we travel a lot). Where to begin, first let's talk about communication...as this is a critical function of a vacation rental situation. The owner Lunda kept in touch with us at every turn answering questions quickly. She also sent us digital receipts for our deposits as they came through. That certainly put me at ease knowing that I'm dealing with a professional.
Upon arrival to paradise, the house was immaculate and clean and after a long day of travel we certainly appreciated that. The location....WOW I don't think Akumal Breakers could be located in a better spot. The town of Akumal is roughly 30 min from Playa Del Carmen and 30 min from Tulum so you are close enough to drive to either location but far enough away from the madness of both of those places.
We spent our days on the beach relaxing under the Palm trees just loving every minute of the privacy.
We loved the cove the house sits on. You can literally swim out 6 feet and snorkel and see schools of fish. We also utilized the Kayaks provided for free during our stay (so fun).
Back to the house, it's a show stopper of a place and the pictures just don't do it justice! Its beautifully decorated in a Mexican style with terra cotta tile floors, gorgeous stained glass everywhere and other Mayan and traditional Mexican decorations. The house is spacious and quiet and seemingly every detail has been thought of by the owner. We have rented many rental houses, and most of them aren't truly equipped like your home would be with proper cooking utensils / pans etc. We had a family of 6 people and we cooked or grilled on the beautiful charcoal grill outside almost every night. It was fantastic!
The house caretakers Mirna and her husband live in the guesthouse that's located in the courtyard. They are truly the nicest people and kept the house immaculate and clean. They were non intrusive and very pleasant HARD WORKING people. They are both licensed massage therapists too and my wife got a massage from Mirna while there...amazing! I could go on and on about the house or the owners or the staff...I will tell you this... We have found our home away from home and this will be a once a year thing for our family. We truly cannot wait to return for another visit. Bryan and Dana B (and soon to be baby Brayden).
Beautiful area, beautiful home! You will feel relaxed and yet exhilarated in this paradise! So much to do and enjoy in the surrounding area, as well as great snorkeling & kayaking right from the beach at the villa!! Wonderful gated community -- always have felt completely safe!
Fantastic! They've thought of everything to make your vacation simple, relaxing and fun. We stayed in the house with another family and had four kids under the age of 6. It was perfect. With the pool, beach and sand they were entertained for hours. There were plenty of hammocks, seats and lounge chairs in the shade and sun to entertain the adults, as well. Couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and wonderful vacation. The ruins and Cenotes are close enough to get to for a short day excursion, but the house is so perfect there is really no reason to leave. And, take advantage of Myrna's cooking. It's great!!
Wonderful villa on the beautiful beach in South Akumal. Great master suites, kid's rooms, living area. Nothing not to like here. The owners have done a great job setting up as a rental oasis with lots of attention to detail. On site caretakers Mirna and Luis a nice plus and keep all in order. The town of Akumal is just right and not too touristy. Loved La Buena Vidal for drinks one afternoon and booked a 3Hr fishing trip right out of the Akumal beach area one day. barracuda! Would go back to Akumal Breakers tomorrow!
We stayed in this Villa on a family trip. Brothers and sisters and spouses. This Villa was very nice. Very well built, laid out and decorated. It is right on the best part of the beach, has a nice pool, and beautiful view. I miss it already. The staff was amazing. So kind and helpful. We will definitely try to come back.
