Hey, I'm Mimi & Richard!
Tulum Municipality, Quintana Roo, Mexico · Member since June 2010

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 6pm and NO LATER than 10pm.*

*We are NOT currently taking reservations for next season and will be doing
maintenance and construction sometime between September 1st to November 1st. We're on Tulum time so that may change. Thank you.*

Hosts:
Richard works in marketing, translations and property management. 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 off season. Our buisness has continued to grow and we are quite busy with other projects. We do however have helpful staff members who work with us.
