''San Francisco is our home away from home and when the going gets tough back in the world, we dream of our own spot in Paradise on the beaches of the Mayan Riviera.
What could be more perfect? Swim or snorkel in crystal clear waters just outside the back door. Or, if it is your preference, take a dip in the fresh water pool. Still too much effort? A siesta in the hammock between palm tress might be just what you need.
We love our place in the sun and would like to share it with you!"

Stayed for a week in November with 4 teens and 6 adults. The house is very nice plenty of room and nicely decorated, I wouldn't change a thing. The housekeepers were there everyday keeping things clean and did a great job. The property manager came over several times to check in on us and she was very friendly and helpful. I wish I remember her name, but I'm writing this review too long after our stay and have forgotten. The house is not to far from Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. We rented a car and driving was very easy on the main road up and down the coast. If you have a smaller group you can catch a collectivo on the main road a quick little walk from the house. We also walked to Akumal a few times along the beach, this was a very nice walk. Kayaking at the house was very nice. At the house its very relaxing not too many people at all in this area. More people on the Beach closer to Akumal, but very private and relaxing at the house. Everyone felt safe the neighborhood has security and a couple of them walked up and down the beach outside the house all night with flashlights. Would for sure return and wish I had longer then a week to stay.
Amazing family vacation
The Casa Sanfrancisco was perfect for our party of nine. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large, comfortable, and styled perfectly. The casita was also used by one of the couples. We cooked all diners on premises and had all the kitchenware we needed. The outdoor space made this rental exceptional--the patio, pool, beach chairs, bar-b-que, and kayaks, and especially the beach and Caribbean Sea just steps outside the door. The care takers and liaison staff were terrific. The only minor faults included not knowing that drinking water was supplied (we needlessly purchased large amounts on our way from the airport); the oven/stove not being as up to date as the rest of the house and appliances; and the limited supply of fresh beach towels. Overall surpassed our expectations and has set the bar very high for all furture vacations!
This hacienda was perfect for a family get away
We had 8 people stay at the Hacienda and we all had a great experience. The staff were great, they went above and beyond as it was my fathers birthday and they actually picked up a birthday cake for my dad. The thing that I haven't seen in many reviews is that the house staff can cook for you and they are fabulous chefs. It is a husband and wife and we all thought the meals were delicious. The house had a nice layout, there were 4 couples and we all stayed comfortably in the house, two more people could've slept in the guest house too. The area is gated and there are security guards protolling the street and beach so it feels very safe.
The beach is nice but there are tons of rocks where the water meets the beach front so its not a white sandy ocean bottom, bring water shoes! We wish they had a hammock, there are two trees by the pool looking at the ocean which are prefect for hammocks. If you have a small eno or packable hammock I would recommend bringing it. They have three, one man kayaks, nothing fancy but they work to go out exploring in the bay.
The property managers were extremely helpful before the trip and the helped coordinate a shuttles service to and from the airport. The ride is about an hour and twenty minuets from the airport.
Tulum is a 30 minute taxi ride and Playa de Carmen takes around 35-40 minutes from the Hacienda.
If you walk north on the beach you will end up at Akumal Bay which has a great restaurant right on the beach, its where all the boats are anchored out. It took us around 25 minutes to walk there. There are small gift shops, a dive shop, tours, and some restaurants so bring your Pesos.
I would definitely recommend staying here as everyone in our group loved the experience and the staff. The whole experience was wonderful! It's in a perfect location, private yet close enough for day trips to different areas.
Great House for a quiet family vacation
This house was great for us. We had two families (4 adults, 5 kids), and we filled all of the rooms, including the casita. Kids (and adults) were on the beach and in the pool all day, every day.
We had dinner made for us just about every night (plus guacamole & pico de gallo as an appetizer every afternoon), and we fended for ourselves for breakfast and dinner. We are comfortable grocery shopping, and we did rent a car. If you wanted to go out to eat, and wanted to walk there, this would be a little on the far side, especially with kids, but if you just want to relax and have someone cook and cleanup, this will be a perfect spot for you. You don't need to rent a car; taxis are plentiful and reasonable.
There is good snorkeling in the bay (protected by a barrier reef). The entry is rocky, so water shoes that fit in your fins are a plus, but lots of folks manage without them.
Be sure to go around the pool area with a flashlight just after sunset. You will find a parade of hermit crabs out and about!
Spectacular place by the sea! So private and divine!
Casa San Francisco was an absolute delight! Spacious, comfortable and with fantastic views of the sea. Loved waking up and taking two steps to be on the beach! Definitely highly recommend! So many wonderful cenotes to explore nearby too!
We are very happy to hear you had a wonderful time :)
If your travel plans in the future bring you to Akumal, please contact us again. We would be happy to help you! :) And all the best on your future projects!
Have a lovely day
