Groovy third floor studio room with jungle and sea views. A magical spot.

The Space

Beautiful light filled private room, with lovely Caribbean view and just a few steps away from the sea! Magical and simple perch on third floor with thatched roof and private balcony. Perfect for a romantic getaway, rest and relaxation and ideal to enjoy Tulum's natural (email hidden) to chill out, watch the stars and disconnect.
King size bed, bathroom, closet, fan, desk and chairs.
This little gem at Pico Beach has lush jungle and sea (email hidden) for independent travelers. Please read the entire property description and our profile before booking.

The room has no A/C and the breeze and fan may not be enough for some folks in the hotter months however, the room is on third floor and the breeze is usually comfortable enough to sleep peacefully. There is wifi but it can be slow and unreliable. Other wifi locations at nearby beach clubs and restaurants within walking distance are often open to clients.

There are a lot of great places to eat nearby as well as cenotes and many options for yoga and some beautiful shops. A 10 minute drive or 30 minute bike ride from Tulum pueblo. Siaan Kaan biosphere and Mayan ruins just minutes away.

Visit us from May to September and experience the joy of turtle season, there are always a couple of mamma turtles that come up on this beach each year. Arrive in August-September and you are almost guaranteed to see some babies heading out to sea. There is no light pollution on this beach so the stars are endless and amazing!

Day passes to the gym in town are available upon request. Spinning, dance classes and personal trainers are available there.

Occasionally the beach club next door has events that go until late so please inquire before you book. The beach club caters to groups and is open daily for breakfast, lunch and (email hidden)eaning daily, fresh towels and sheets every third day. Electricity 24hrs. Parking.

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

Located on small property Between Ahau Tulum and Coqui Coqui. A ten minute drive from 307 highway.

  • The pictures do not do this room justice! What a beautiful location to stay in during your visit to Tulum Beach. While having no hot water was a bit of a shock at first, we eventually got used to it and appreciated the ecological reasoning behind it. The staff at Akiin are very friendly and accommodating; the beach is breathtakingly beautiful! Tulum town is a 20 minute bike ride or cabs are easily accessible for approximately $90 pesos). Our favorite day was when we rented bikes (approx $160 pesos each = $14/24 hours) to ride to the Tulum Ruins, then to Mateo's for lunch (Best fish tacos EVER!), into the city and back to the beach. There are many great places for yoga and food just walking distance from the room. One thing I would suggest is to inquire about the current rate of the room before booking. AirBnB shows their standard rate, but the rate changes during peak times throughout the year and you'll be charged by that rate. The room is still worth it, for sure, but it's good to know going in. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!

    The last thing to note about Tulum itself is that the ATMs are finicky; we weren't able to get cash anywhere even after we contacted our bank and they said we were good to go. Luckily when we ran out, we just went everywhere that accepted credit, but that meant we were paying more and limited our choices. The bank in town will give you cash with a credit/debit card, but the line is long and you'll need your passport readily available.

    Overall, the trip to Tulum was our best vacation yet!

  • Mimi and Richard's place is lovely. We stayed in a room that had a great view of the ocean and an amazing ocean breeze. The room was having problems with the water pressure while we were there, but Mimi was wonderful and gave us a refund for a night because of the problems. Pico Beach is also close to so many restaurants, yoga studios and small shops that it's the perfect place to stay if you don't want to rent a car and have everything nearby. We rented bikes and rode to the cenotes and into town. The beach club next door, Akin, can be quite loud if they are having a special party like a wedding, but if you bring earplugs, you'll be all set. Great place to stay!

About
We are a Mexican American brother & sister team of young entrepreneurs overworking ourselves in paradise. We have a garden oasis of five rustic beach side garden cabanas, a second floor suite, a third floor rustic perch with sea view and a beach front home. It's called Pico Beach by Akiin. Our simple properties are run more as a guest house than hotel and cater to independent travelers that want a simple, rustic, and relaxed Tulum experience. Bikes and taxis can be hired easily in this fabulous part of Tulum's Southern beach zone. Some of the maps are incorrect, we are located ON THE BEACH road between Ahau Tulum and coqui coqui hotel, directly next door to Akiin Beach Club. The cabanas are part of Akiin Beach Club but are in their own garden area of the property. We update our calendar religiously. Well behaved children are welcome. Please note that events and groups use the beach club space on a regular basis and weddings occur most weekends through out the year but most heavily November through June. Please keep this in mind prior to booking, especially during the winter months. We now have fully furnished studios in downtown Tulum! *PLEASE CHECK IN between 12 and 8pm and NO LATER than 10pm.* *We are NOT currently taking reservations for next season and will be doing some maintenance between October and November. We're on Tulum time so that may change. Thank you.* Hosts: Richard works in marketing, property management and as of this year opened his own restaurant. In his spare time he plays with Malix Futbol Club de Tulum and plays ultimate frisbee. He travels whenever possible. His favorite places in the world are New York City, Guanajuato and Mumbai. Mimi manages property as works in some creative endeavors. She is usually the one to answer messages and is the main property manager. In her free time she finds all the best places to eat and drink. She is also a seasoned traveler. Her favorite places include Bagan, San Miguel Allende and Paris. We spend a lot of time swimming in the local cenotes, one of the coolest natural wonders in the world! We also love to read, eat, swim, dive, and plan our next adventure. We travel as much as we can, especially in the summer and fall. Our place has continued to grow and we are quite busy with other projects. We are part of Akiin beach club and have helpful staff members who work with us.
