At its core, BÄAK is an eco-conscious luxury travel management company, revolutionizing the vacation rental experience for property owners and journeyers alike.
Founded in a little corner of paradise in Tulum, Mexico, BÄAK assembled an intimate team of like-minded young thought leaders and change-makers who set foot on this path with the intention to create a conscious business filled with life-changing experiences, natural luxury, and deep connection.
At BÄAK, their mission is to make travel and management as seamless, hands-free, and luxurious as possible. Since the birth of the company, they have worked to revolutionize the travel industry by allowing rental property owners to share their space with prospective travelers effortlessly while curating once-in-a-lifetime experiences for their guests.
The current ‘BÄAK – Tulum’ portfolio comprises 32 unique luxury rental properties, from studios to 3-bedroom Duplex Penthouses in the iconic The Panoramic 360º and Central Park Tulum developments.
Property for BÄAK’s next project has recently been acquired in the pristine area of Praia da Amoreira in the Algarve region of Portugal. Homes will be developed with Hempcrete, a sustainable and durable building material that absorbs Co2 and provides superior insulation to reduce electricity consumption. BÄAK will develop the property from concept to completion, and offer their superior management services to the ultimate purchaser of the development, allowing them to focus on new sustainable projects in other parts of the world.
BÄAK Founder Joanna Schweers is an Argentinian American who has spent the last decade living between New York City, Miami, and Tulum. Joanna’s journey began in the luxury hospitality industry, where she worked for fifteen years in the prestigious polo industry and with world-renowned brands like the LVMH corporation. Her passion is traveling the globe, hosting people from all walks of life, and creating experiences that will be passed down as stories for generations to come. Joanna’s love, specifically for Tulum, birthed the passion project that is now leading the frontier of luxury vacation rentals – BÄAK.
