The Space

Beautiful light filled private room. Complete with Caribbean view and just a few steps away from the sea!

Magical and simple perch on third floor with a thatched roof and in-room bathroom. Perfect for a romantic getaway. The ideal place to enjoy Tulum's natural beauty, chill out in and disconnect.

Watch the canopy of stars take over the sky from your private balcony. Cabana Sol features a king size bed, bathroom, closet, fan, desk and chairs. This little gem has both lush jungle and open sea views.


Guest Access

The best thing you will have access to is the white sand Caribbean beach just steps from your room. The beach access is through our affiliated beach club located on the same property. Use of Akiin Beach Club facilities, such as furniture, outdoor showers, etc. are included. The beach club is usually open for breakfast and lunch. They also have an easy-going beach bar. The beach club is open to the public and often hosts groups and weddings.

You will also have access to the lush jungle garden, which features hammocks and a picnic table. The garden is exclusively for guests of our eight accommodations, so it’s pretty private.

We offer Wi-Fi, though it is slow and often unreliable. If constant Wi-Fi access is important to you we are unable to provide it at this time. Many Wi-Fi locations at nearby beach clubs and restaurants are available.

Guests can request a gym pass for Adventure Fitness Club located in downtown Tulum, 10-15 minutes away by car. It features a fully equipped gym, hot showers, lockers and more. The classes included in your gym pass may change, but previously have included yoga, zumba, latin dance, cross-fit, spinning, and others. They can also help you hire a personal trainer, private dance classes and other services.

Interaction with Guests

It is unlikely that we will be there for check in/out. We try and meet our guests at some point during their stay, but we may not coincide. If you have a question or concern please let us or our staff know as soon as possible; don’t wait to run into us.

We work with a small staff to ensure you have a relaxing and positive experience. The cleaning staff will stop in every day, and there is a property manager on site all afternoon.

We cater to independent travelers that look for privacy and are happy to explore on their own. In an emergency our property managers are available by phone; also the head of maintenance lives on site, though he does not speak English.

We are always happy to help, but until we develop mind reading abilities, please let us know if you have any questions or issues as they occur. We appreciate having the opportunity to address them.

The Neighborhood

Great beach location, a quick 10-15 minute drive from Tulum town and highway 307, minutes from local cenotes, major tourist attractions like Xel Ha, Tulum's archeological ruins and the Sian Kaan Biosphere.

We are also very close to all the hip jungle side boutiques, restaurants and bars. Our property is in an ideal part of Tulum’s wide palm strewn southern beaches between Ahau Tulum and Coqui Coqui. Some of our neighbors include Hartwood, Casa Jaguar, Cenzontle, Uno Astrolodge, Shiva, Yoga Shala and Il Barino. We are happy to make additional recommendations once you have arrived.

Several bike rentals are nearby so you can explore the area.

The full moon lights up this world-renowned beach whose white sand reflect the moonlight so well you can almost read by it. There is very little light pollution so the stars are endless and amazing.

Visit us from May to September and experience the joy of turtle season, there are a few mamma turtles that come up on our beach each year. Arrive in August-September and you are almost guaranteed to see some babies heading out to sea.

Tulum is a small community so it’s easy to discover your own favorite spots.

Getting Around

Rent a bike. Many local attractions like cenotes and the Tulum ruins are in biking distance. Closer to home you will find many great restaurants, bars and boutiques.

Renting a car is another great way to get around the area, especially for longer stays. We recommend getting one at the airport when you first arrive. There are also rental companies in Tulum. Downtown Tulum is less about ten minutes away by car, and you can find many great places to eat and shop that are more budget friendly once you leave the beach road. There are many other cool things to do in the surrounding areas, like climbing the Coba ruins, snorkeling with turtles in Akumal, walking the colonial streets of Valladolid, swimming in crystal clear cenotes, and more. All of this becomes accessible with a car.

Please be aware and alert when purchasing gas as the attendants are infamous for giving the wrong change and using sleight of hand to switch your bill for a lower denomination one.

There is a parking lot for your use on the property.

Taxi cabs are easily hailed and should have a price list you can ask to consult. If haggling, do so prior to getting in the cab. Tipping is appreciated but not expected (except for airport runs or all day excursions when tips are standard).

In town you will find the ADO bus station, an inexpensive way to get to the airport as well as various archeological sites.

Public transportation vans, a.k.a. "colectivos," can be hailed from the main avenue in town as they go up to Playa del Carmen (they will drop you off anywhere along their route too). There are also vans that go to the beach, but these must be taken from specific stops in town. You can hail these down on the beach road as well, though they are primarily for those commuting to and from work on the beach and they sometimes won’t stop for tourists.

Tour companies are another great way to explore the area. The Sian Kaan Biosphere is Mexico’s largest freshwater preserve. As such it is best explored from a boat or kayak. With a guide you can see the tremendous number of birds that nest here, float down canals used by the ancient Mayans and watch the sun set into the lagoon at the end of the day. Let us know and we can help set you up with a tour.

Other Things to Note

All of our properties are non-smoking. This is strictly enforced as it is a serious fire hazard for our thatched roof palapas. We would also prefer that our guests stay safe.

We recommend you bring a flashlight or headlamp, mosquito repellent and sunscreen with high SPF.

Many establishments on the beach are cash only. ATM's are located in various locations throughout the beach road, including one on our property. However the ATM’s located in town and at grocery stores are less prone to being out of service and have lower fees.

Please do not throw toilet paper in the toilet, use the wastebaskets provided instead.

Rooms are cleaned daily; fresh towels and sheets are provided every third day unless otherwise requested. Keep in mind that all water and electricity must be brought in or generated so please be mindful of your consumption.

All rooms have 24hr electricity.

Well-behaved children are welcome.

You may want to ask if there is a wedding or event planned at the beach club during your stay. Weddings occur some weekends throughout the year and can go until 2am. On those occasions the beachfront area is cordoned off so that you have a private beach separate from the wedding party.

We do not have hot water on site.

There is no kitchen access.

Our property is not baby-proofed.

Please keep these limitations in mind before you book.
