“Just Like Home --- And Better!”

"Simply fabulous" describes our week-long stay at Akumal Breakers. The location is fantastic and the home is the perfect mix of comfort and space. We enjoyed the common areas both indoors and out and found the bedrooms and bathrooms to be first rate. We were so comfortable the entire time and commented over and over how Akumal Breakers was just like home - and even better thanks to the picture perfect beach and bay.

Mirna and Luis add something special to the experience with their smiles, pride in maintaining the property, easy going nature and incredible cooking! Mirna's chili relleno and pork pibili are must haves. We also enjoyed massages on the beach during the morning hours - what a memory!

The interactions with Lunda before, during, and after our trip were timely, direct, and very helpful. It's clear customer service is a priority.

The house is perfect for a small family or a larger group. Anyone who experiences Akumal Breakers will realize why those of us who have called it "home" for even a few days consider it a very special place.

“Most Awesome Time”
Reviewed March 10, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our group had the most amazing time at Akumal Breakers. The house was beautiful and stocked with many items that rental houses usually do not have (sugar, coffee, water, Apple TV). We had Mirna cook for us the first night and it was a great way to begin our vacation. A few people from the group also took advantage of Mirna's massages and were very satisfied.
We spent many hours sitting in the Adirondack chairs watching the waves and just enjoying the location. The best beach in the area. We enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling in front of the house (lots of fish and sting rays).
We walked into town and few times for lunch and dinner. We loved Turtle Bay Cafe and La Buena Vida.
The house's location can't be beat. Away from the crowds, but close enough to easily get to Akumal, Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. We took advantage of the collectivos which were very easy and cheap!
Hope to visit Akumal Breakers again.

“Spectacular!”

I stayed at Akumal Breakers with my family for one week in February. Everyone in the family loved the house -- including my 8 and 10 year old nephews. This house has the best beach of any house in South Akumal. There is also great snorkeling directly in front of the house.

The only reason that I gave 4 stars for the location is because I wish there was a small restaurant a bit closer. However, a small restaurant close by would mean more people in the area. And one of the best things about this house is there are very few people in there area, therefore you normally have the reefs and beaches to yourself.

The caretakers were great and you hardly knew they were there other than the perfectly clean house. We hired them to cook for us one of the nights and the food was perfect.

I will definitely be staying at Akumal Breakers again!

This wonderful villa has everything you need for a treasured family vacation. You could not ask for more with its location right on the beach. For those that don't love the ocean, there is also a pool right out your door. The staff will assist you as much or as little as you want. They are never in your way but there to make your vacation more enjoyable. Two thumbs up for Akumal Breakers and their staff!

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.
