May '14 Update: Some of my first guests in January complained about construction noise. It should be noted that there is ongoing light construction within earshot of the condo. Our prices reflect this minor disruption.

'We had the most magnificent stay at Paul's apartment. Fully equipped, beautiful, spacious apartment. Paul's guide to the area was extremely helpful. His restaurant recommendations were spot on. Driving directions and local sight info perfect. The resort is huge. One of the biggest! Paul's apartment is in the quiet residential area so was a lovely refuge to come back to. The resort has numerous pools and a beautiful beach. Do get a car! We did after some prompting and found driving seamless. I can highly recommend the coba and tulum ruins and there are hundreds of underwater cenotes which are a must! Weather was hot and a little humid but not overwhelmingly so. Air con in the apartment was welcome. Loved loved loved it here. Would highly recommend apartment and area. Paul was a fantastic host. Prompt communication and he left a local mobile for us and contact details for his property manager if we should need it. Oh, and we arrived to a big fruit bowl and bottle of wine! Five stars! We've stayed in over 15 bnbs and this was the best! Thanks we'll be back!'

Owner Paul Birkett purchased this apartment in 2012
Why Owner Paul Birkett chose Akumal
A chance business trip took me to Tulum....and I totally fell in love. Its a stunning location that has every modern convenience... but its also a laid back shabby chic joint where you can hang out on the beach with your family all day.
What makes this apartment unique
I love to golf and my girlfriend loves yoga. We both love to explore new places and experience different cultures. This place is perfect for both of us. Amazing golf....and free yoga! Lots to do by day or by night
