Akumal Breakers is a magical 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath 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, two stand up paddle boards 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 and a private bath. 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.

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.
Just returned from a week at Akumal Breakers, and it was easily one of our best stays in Mexico - EVER! The home is beautiful, clean, well appointed, and the property and location just couldn't be more ideal. I'm pretty sure you could throw a coconut from the back porch of the home and land it in the ocean, that's how close it is to the water. As you can see in the photos, right out the sliding back doors of the home is the wonderful pool (kept clean daily!), no less than three hammocks and FIVE separate seating areas all spread over the most beautiful grounds with sugar white sand and a pristine beach with crystal clear blue-green waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling (with giant turtles!) As far as beach vacations go, it really doesn't get any better than this.
We had our three children with us (ages 8, 6, and 3) and the home was perfectly set up for their enjoyment, with an assortment of pool and beach toys already there waiting for us. The interior of the home was ideal as well, with spacious bedrooms, good air conditioning (don't worry when you first get there it may seem hot because each room has its own unit that needs about a day to cool the space, but by the second day it will be frigid :-) and a wonderful living room/entertainment area where we watched movies each night on their modern AV setup (flatscreen TV and the latest/greatest apple TV device!)
And last but certainly not least: the wonderful caretakers of the home, Mirna and Luis, made our entire stay as comfortable and enjoyable as we could have hoped. We opted to have them grocery shop and prepare meals for us daily, and their delicious home-cooked Mexican cuisine was a highlight of the trip. The home and grounds were also kept spotless daily, even the sand was raked each morning! It was the best of both worlds: like staying with family and also like staying in a top-notch hotel at the same time! And Lunda, the property manager, was very responsive and helped us with every aspect of the reservation from arrival to departure and everything in between.
Highly, highly recommended!
This house lives like a home! The service provided by Mirna and her husband in cooking and cleaning should not be missed! I wanted to bring Mirna home with me. I have never had a vacation where I looked forward to the meals as much as this other than when I went to Italian Cooking School! The value of having the meals at home is incredible. We walked the beach every day and felt that our location was the best actual beach/sand in the bay area. We had Mirna cook a late breakfast and an earlier dinner and snacked at lunch. You can pre-order groceries to be delivered to the house. There is a man- Cesar, who you can arrange to pick you up at the airport and drop you, which I highly recommend. It's not a bad walk on the beach to town if you need to pick up extras at the grocery. The house is well thought out for privacy and sound. Pick up your alcohol needs on the way from the airport and you're set! I will go back to this house in a heartbeat. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable.
Took a trip with several friends who wanted to get away from the snow in the Midwest. Akumal Breakers was a wonderful get away. The villa is right on the beach, well equipped and very comfortable. The weather was a little cool, but since the days were sunny, we didn't mind. It was a good time.
I remember all of my family walking in Akumal Breadkers and it was like Christmas morning. We were all like little kids walking around saying WOW! "Hay come over here and check this out!" etc. We chose Akumal Breakers, over a condo thinking it would be better with small kids (4 yr. old & 2 yr. old). It was perfect so much more kid friendly. Do not think I will ever want to go back to Mexico unless I'm staying at Akumal Breakers and there is so much to do and see, that we didn't have time to get too! Love the little town of Akumal, also. Thanks, Micheal & Lunda for sharing your place with us.
Blessings to both of you,
Bruce, Anne, Jennifer, Nic, Kristin, Kelly, Clare & Abby
Akumal Breakers is a fantastic home in a truly amazing, laid-back beach location. Already looking forward to another visit as I watch snow fall in Buffalo, NY. Our family of eight relaxed completely for the entire week of our stay over Christmas 2015. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and ocean, sunning on the peaceful beach, sitting on comfy beachfront adirondack chairs tucked under the mangroves, snorkeling just off our beach and spotting stingrays and brightly colored fish, trying out the kayaks and SUPs, dining outside by the pool or walking on the beach to Akumal for several great dinners. Everything about the home was even better than described. Bedrooms immaculate, spacious, and comfortable. Bathrooms luxurious and modern. Kitchen and bar area well equipped, with potable water and ice supplied for drinking and cooking. Plenty of gathering space inside and out for dining, playing games, watching the waves, chatting, reading, and napping. Outdoor shower was also a big hit!
What really set this home apart was the attentive and excellent service provided by the owners and by Mirna and Luis, the incredible on-site caretakers. From our first inquiry, the owners were so pleasant, providing all the information we needed, handling reservation process professionally, and speaking knowledgeably and lovingly about the home and the Akumal area. Mirna and Luis work very hard and keep the house and grounds immaculately clean; they anticipated our needs and everything we could have needed or wanted was provided without us having to ask! Amazing! Mirna and Luis are true professionals, very kind, and, as an incredible bonus, wonderful cooks and massage therapists!! We loved the two dinners Mirna and Luis cooked and served- don't miss out on Mirna's Pork Pibil- delicious! The owners provide a menu guide to choose meals and outline the very reasonable charges for shopping and preparation. There's also a form to specify what services your family would like for the week, at times that are convenient for you, so if you want to sleep in or want dinner at a certain time, it's easy to let Mirna and Luis know. Mirna and Luis speak some English and our sons speak Spanish, and Mirna was very patient with my limited language skills! (The owners also provide a list of Spanish phrases and an English/Spanish dictionary ) Don't miss beachside couples massages! Vacation perfection!! Thank you for sharing your home with our family!!
This is the first time our family has rented a home on the beach with a swimming pool. It could not have been better. There was space for everyone - ages ranging from 6 to 65! We have Mirna and Luis prepare 6 meals for us and it was worth every penny. We chose 2 nights in a row for meals as Mirna shops for the meals and there is a charge for the shopping. So we had two meals prepared by them and then we prepared two of our own meals. Having them cook for us really made this a vacation for all of us. Both Mirna and Luis did an exceptional job of keeping the home and outside tidied up for us and we barely knew they were there. We had a full moon while we were there and the rooftop terrace was exceptional for that. The wifi worked great and Lunda has really thought of everything and she was always there for me when I had a question. I imagine we will rent it again for another family Thanksgiving. THANKS SO MUCH!!!
