Tulum Luxury Villa Privacy & Pool

Villa - Entire home/apt · Cancun - Chetumal, Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico

The Space

This is a great new condo on the south end of Tulum on the edge of the jungle in a new residential area. It's a short 1/2 mile walk or bike ride to town with lots of shopping and restaurants to choose from. You'll find this particular unit to be very well appointed with extras you probably aren't used to in a rental unit. We live here full-time so we have added quite a few "creature comforts" you won't likely find elsewhere. When you are here, we'll be available if needed and ready to give you great local tips about little known secrets and local adventures that will make your trip truly memorable.

The kitchen is amazing and great for entertaining, fully stocked with everything you could possibly need to make you and your family and friends great meals. We have lots of beach towels for you to use while you are here, along with beach chairs and beach umbrella. Your rental also includes the use of two bikes for getting around town and to the beach. There's even an outdoor shower on the patio for the post beach or pool rinse off!

If you are trying to decide between a condo-villa in town or on the beach, let us point out a couple of "nice things" about being closer to town in a luxury condo. The first is simple luxuries; here you'll have full-time power, air conditioning, nice pool, US satellite TV, great water pressure for hot or cold showers, wireless internet access and a feeling of being in your very own villa in Mexico.

If you are worried about getting to the beach-DON'T, it's a 5-10 minute drive or taxi ride (depending on beach area) to get there and you have a number of great little cabana resorts that will welcome you free of charge-assuming you plan to have a bite to eat or a few drinks there OR you can simply go to the public beach access and bring the chairs, cooler and umbrella with you. Spend your days on the beach or checking out the ruins, lagoons and cenotes and then retreat to TRUE luxury. We live here and I can tell you THIS is a great option, we love the beach, but we love going back to the jungle villa after a long day out in the sun, sand and wind.

The other great thing about being in town is the food and shopping, you have a HUGE variety of options in Tulum town versus the beach where most of the restaurants and shops are more expensive and your choices are somewhat limited. You can get to feeling kind of isolated and captured out there as well, nothing wrong getting away, but it's also nice to have more options for dining and shopping within walking distance, especially if you have been "out there" all day.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I spent a week at the Tulum Luxury Villa with my daughter. It is a very nice home and furnished nicely. The hosts, Ron and Catherine, were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. They gave us good tips for enjoying Tulum. I am aware they have a pool, but we did not use it. Ron was very generous lending us his snorkel equipment, books, and DVDs. The house is located just south of the town of Tulum, so it is not walking distance to the beaches, but one could walk into town fairly easily. We had a rental car, so there was no issue for us. Overall, the Tulum Luxury Villa is a great place to stay with wonderful hosts, but it's less than ideal location gave it 4 stars instead of 5. However, the price was very reasonable for the quality of the accommodations, so consider renting a car for the money you will save on lodging in Tulum.

    Response from Ron:

    Thanks for choosing to stay with us Mark. We really enjoyed having you and your daughter here. I am glad you had the rental car to truly get the most out of the Tulum area. Yes we are a 10 minute drive from the beach, so versus beachfront we are not ideally located "on the beach", but we also offer a lot of luxuries and in-town conveniences with shopping and restaurants you just can't get on the beach! Being mobile in Tulum is a good thing as there is so much to see and do in the area, much of which is beyond biking and walking distance.

    Take care and we'll see you in Tulum!

  • We spent Christmas and New Years in Tulum this year. Ron was an excellent host and very accommodating! He had an amazing book of recommendations, but was also available to answer questions about where to go, what to see, and when. He also made the suggestion of renting a car, since house is about 10-15 min from the beach. Driving around Tulum was really easy, and it was nice to spend the day in the sun and be able to drive back and enjoy modern accommodations. We had so much fun in Tulum, I'd highly recommend this place!

I'm a lucky laptop entrepreneurial adventurer living the dream in Tulum, Mexico! AKA Paradise! My wife and I have been visiting the Yucatan for many years and when we discovered the Tulum beaches we started thinking about a plan to live down here part or full-time. Having a virtual business made the move easier for us. We have been here most of the time since the fall of 2007 and really love our life and adventure in Tulum Mexico. We truly enjoy sharing the area. We have made our home, the jungle loft and the other units we manage here in Tulum places for living in luxury, not just a vacation rental. Our standards are high. You'll find everything you need and more with the details and amenities that typically are not offered at other vacation rentals. We also have a lot of local insights and tips for you during your stay. We have collected a lot of knowledge and information over the years, with lots of off the beaten path adventures, restaurants, best sunsets and incredible beaches. We have them all noted in a 3-ring binder and we are available to provide you with personal attention or directions if needed. We will see you in Tulum! Ron and Catherine
