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 accommatidating 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.

“we are wishing we were back at Akumal Breakers right now!!”

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.
The house itself is located at the southern tip of Akumal bay so it's secluded, away from crowds and people which we loved. There are other houses in this area with permanent residents and sometimes rental vacationers which is to be expected. 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 inn a Mexican style with terra cotta tile floors, gorgeous stained glass everywhere and other Mayan and traditional Mexican decorations. Tastefully done yet paying homage' to the area and surroundings. 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. This house has everything you would ever need if you want to prepare amazing meals. There were even spices and seasonings! We had a family of 6 people and we cooked or grilled on the beautiful charcoal grill outside almost every nignt. 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. Mirna cleans the inside of the house and her husband cleans the outside. They were non intrusive and very pleasant HARD WORKING people. Rarely do you see a rental property with people that live onsite like this but WOW it made the stay that much better. 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. I ha be never been so sad to leave a rental home as I did Akumal Breakers. We have found our slice of paradise with this home and we truly cannot wait to return for another visit.

“Great Place for Family with Adult Married Children”

Everyone in our group enjoyed Akumal Breakers. Although every couple had their own automobile, there was a place for everyone to park. With four couples and one child, we were all very comfortable in the house. Location of the house made it very convenient to get to Tulum, Coba, downtown Akumal, and even Playa de Carmen. Mirna and Luis did a great job in working around all of our schedules as far as sleeping and eating habits in the house. We always had the right amount of towels and water on hand. The house even had things like coffee, powdered creamer, sugar, spices, and so many more items that we never thought of, and this made it easy for us to cook many of our own meals. The beach and water were just steps away from the house and most of us took advantage of it every day. During our stay we were lucky enough to see baby turtles being introduced back into the water. We would definitely go back to Akumal and stay at Akumal Breakers.

“Akumal Breakers is a stunner!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

My husband and I and three other couples vacationed at Akumal Breakers over Thanksgiving 2013. We are a group that travels together often, often in Mexico. We stayed 7 days and were thoroughly delighted with the home and with the caretakers, Mirna and Luis. Mirna cooked breakfast for us three times and Luis cooked arracherra for us twice - they are excellent chefs and were gracious and giving throughout our stay.

The house is stunning, the pictures do not do it justice. Akumal Breakers includes all the amenities you could ask for, including oils and spices, coffee, coolers for the beach, pool and beach floats, books to peruse, an outdoor grill, AppleTV (which was somewhat spotty, but we rolled with it), and of course, reliable and robust air conditioning. The beds are quite firm, and that seems to be standard as we've encountered that at other villas and nice hotels in the Yucatan.

The beach in front of the house was the best around, and the snorkeling was fun for our group (a mixture of seasoned and first-time snorkelers). We made use of the kayaks and walked to town by way of the beach a few times. I wouldn't recommend walking back in the dark, but a taxi from town to the house was only about $20 USD.

The town is small and quaint. We loved Lol-Ha, La Buena Vida and Turtle Bay. La Cueva del Pescador offers the freshest fish and the most amazing margarita pitchers. My grilled octopus there was divine.

I look fondly at my photos from Breakers, and hope to return one day soon.

After a long journey from Boston we were thrilled to finally get to Akumal. We were not disappointed once we arrived. This home is in a safe gated community that is home to the best beaches around. You honestly dont really have to leave the house. The pool and the beach are literally your backyard. The house was spotless, the caretakers were very nice and the owners could not have been any nicer. I highly recommend this vacation rental.

“Relaxing family vacation”

My family had a wonderful time vacationing at Akumal Breakers. The home is in an ideal location on the beach with a nice sandy stretch right in front of the house. I noticed that other spots on the beach had a lot of coral chunks that you had to get through to get into the water. There is coral here, but only after you get in…..My kids were able to bring their beach toys right down to the beach and build sand castles, while I read my book in the hammock (in the shade)

The pool is small, but plenty for my 3 kids (ages 8,6, and 5). It was the first and last thing they did everyday. They loved it.

There are many lovely sitting areas in the outdoor space to enjoy including a great dining table that is covered and next to the pool, lounge chairs by the pool, 3 hammocks, a cocktail table out near the beach and a row of adriondack chairs right at the edge of the beach.

There was a constant breeze blowing through the house which was my favorite part of the entire trip. Very warm, but with the breeze and all of the shade it was easy to stay comfortable with all of the windows open.

Myrna and Luis were fantastic and the home is maintained in very nice condition (and very clean) We would definitely go back!!
