Guest access

The best thing you will have access to is the white sand Caribbean beach just steps from your home.

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 to the public for breakfast and lunch; they have an easy-going beach bar too.

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.

The beach club hosts groups everyday and on wedding days these access the property through the garden.

The massive balcony is sometimes shared by your hosts, our family or guests. When this is the case the balcony is divided with rope to ensure privacy.

There are boogie boards and other beach toys on the property that are available for your use. They are stored in the house entryway.

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.

Interaction with guests

I am not often on the beach but my property manager and our staff will be around during your stay. We try and meet our guests at some point during their stay, but we don't always coincide. If you have a question or concern please message me or let my 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 nearly every day, and there is a property manager on site 6 days a week. We cater to independent travelers that look for privacy and are happy to explore on their own. In an emergency our property manager and myself 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.

Other things to note

***NEW YEARS requires at least a 5 day booking. Thank you!***

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 snorkel gear, 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 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 almost daily; fresh towels and sheets are provided every third day unless 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.

Ask if there are weddings or events planned at the beach club during your stay, there likely are. Weddings occur almost every weekend and ocasional weekdays. They often go until 2am and the festivities can be quite loud. You can usually see the wedding from the house balcony, many of our guests have enjoyed watching the celebration.

On those occasions the beachfront area is cordoned off so that you have a private beach separate from the wedding party.

The sinks and showers drain to a grey water garden so please use biodegradable soaps if possible.

Our property is not baby-proofed. We do not have baby accoutrements, sorry!

Please keep these limitations in mind before you book.

The views from the front porch and the two porches (yes, two!) upstairs were amazing. Tulum is such a wonderful place to visit. I was not expecting staff to clean the unit every day. This isn't something that I have e(EMAIL HIDDEN)munication was easy from the time I booked the beach house up until the end. To be able to walk out of the door and be on the beach was pretty cool. I would stay here again. You should try it if you enjoy that laid-back beach vibe.

My friends and I (we were a group of six) had an amazing time at this beach house. Stephanie and Arial provided superb service and really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The restaurant is right next to the house with great food and drinks, and you can step out of the house and walk barefoot to the beach and relax on the lounge chairs. There are also restrooms for the resort in case you are concerned about only having one bathroom in the house for a large group. It is very easy to hail taxi's right outside the resort if you're going into town. Gitano and Cenzontle Jadrin Secreto are great restaurants less than a 5 minute walk away. There is also a coffee shop and gelato right across the street. Great location on the beach and around nice restaurants, though if you're looking for bars you'll need to take a taxi towards the town. We could not have asked for a better experience!

Firstly the location is amazing! If you want to be in centre of tulum walking distance from all amazing restaurants and a stones throw away from the beach then this villa is perfect. The view in the morning from the balconies is just amazing. The villa is comfortable but don't expect luxury. It's cleaned every day by the staff from the beach bar and they put fresh flowers in the living area most days which was a nice touch. We saw two weddings from our balcony at the beach bar which was quite special. There were 6 of us staying here (3 couples) the living space and balcony was fine for all of us but one couple drew the short straw and had the bed on the landing so if you aren't a super close group of 6 then maybe this wouldn't work for you but we didn't mind. Overall we enjoyed our stayed and tulum is just the most wonderfully fun place! Thank you!

I am part of a family of entrepreneurs overworking ourselves in paradise. I take care of most rental inquiries at La Palmita and Akiin Beach and am happy to help in any way I can during your stay. When I'm not responding to Airbnb requests I train for an event called Travesia Sagrada Maya, swim in local cenotes, play ultimate frisbee and hang out with my wife and our dogs.
