First and foremost, our host Roxie was AMAZING. When we arrived she gave us a quick tour of her home with everything we needed to know to have a comfortable stay and even greeted us with welcome beers to start off our week. Her home was everything we hoped for and more. We enjoyed the fact that she had bikes for us to ride around the town of Tulum (5 minutes) and to the beaches (10 minutes). We spent a lot of time lounging/hanging out on her front/back patio's. Roxie was a huge part of our successful and memorable trip to Tulum. She gave us many recommendations on where to eat, things to do, how to get to places, best taxi drivers, etc. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling with just one another person. This is a fabulous and economical way of staying in the town of Tulum.
From the fresh bougainvillea flowers in cases on the tables and in the bathroom to the candles that are placed on the nightstand, Roxie pays attention to the details. The linens are soft, mattress comfortable and the towels plush. The shower is always hot (a thing in Tulum!) and the kitchen well appointed to make nourishing meals - from morning coffee to an evening nightcap.
Everything you will need you will find at Roxie's - a first aid kit, a washer and dryer, a clothesline ... All of the amenities you will need are at your disposal.
The home itself is brightly furnished and well-lit with natural light during the day, while still offering a cool respite from the Yucatecan heat. The front and back patios are lovely sitting areas - in the morning you can take your breakfast out in the morning sun, and in the late afternoon relax in the hammock in the shade with an afternoon refreshment -- all in a very private setting.
The location of Roxie's place is perfect- it's in a neighborhood its south of the ruins, and nearly right off the main intersection to the route to the Playa. This is good on a few fronts- 1) the home is away from the noise of Centro - virtually silent at night, 2) the main attractions of town are really at your fingertips and are within easy access by car or bike.
As for transport, Roxie provides two bikes for her guests' use. While I had a car at my disposal, I preferred using the bikes to get around town- easier than futzing with a car and parking, especially at the beach which can be crowded during high season. If you need to hire a car for a day trip, large rental agencies like Hertz and Avis are literally a few blocks walk from Roxie's home, as is the collectivo bus stops. The main bus station is just down the Main Street about 3-4km. And of course, taxis are readily available all across Tulum - at the beach, near popular restaurants and across Centro. Transportation within Tulum is very easy to navigate from Roxie's place.
Roxie makes sure her guests are well informed- going the extra mile to provide and nice welcome packet that includes reviews of local restaurants and beaches. She's not afraid to offer her own opinion and treat you like family. Roxie is in the know of all the local happenings -- Roxie is attentive to the needs of her guests and goes the extra mile to make sure every detail you may need is tended to and that you feel comfortable and safe.
Roxie truly takes her role as a host seriously and is as professional and attentive as any concierge in a boutique hotel.
As a solo female traveller, Roxie provided me the perfect place for rest and relaxation and I look forward to staying in touch and coordinating another visit with her soon!
Roxie was a great host, she was very welcoming and helpful
The apartment is well decorated with plenty of space for 2 people. Good location and the bikes came in very handy.
Roxie also provided us with lots of information on the local area including trips, and recommendations of bars and restaurants which was very useful.
Would definitely return!
Roxie was a gracious host. She helped in every way to acommodate our needs. Roxie provided many appliances including blender and juicer. The house was comfortable, stylish and well kept. The walls are filled with her original art. Roxie is a true hospitality professional and wonderful person. I highly recommend staying at Roxie's and riding bikes around or rent a car for a different perspective of Tulum.
Roxie was a great host, very welcoming and helpful with any questions we had.
The place is perfect size for 2 people. Very nicely decorated, paying close attention to detail.
Great location in a real Mexican neighbourhood. Nice bike ride away from the beach during the day and easy walking distance to the restaurants in Tulum town at night. Felt very safe in the neighbourhood. Supermarket only 5-10 mins walking distance.
Would defiantly like to stay here again if I return to Tulum.
We had a wonderful stay at Roxie's. I think the reviews speak for themselves and ours is no different. Everything was as described. Roxie was a great host, and made us feel very welcome. Any questions or concerns we had were addressed quickly and communicated very well. Roxie's place is a very quaint escape off the busy streets and located by everything you'd want to access through the bikes she provides.
You really cannot go wrong with Roxie, or this listing!
I had a great experience staying at Roxies place. Roxie was an excellent host - she was very communicative from the time I booked the stay. She promptly responded to my emails, and she even sent a list of suggested things to do while in Tulum. If you need a ride to/from the airport, she can arrange a private transfer for you (which I did). Once I got there, she was there to greet me and give me a detailed tour of the apartment. The apartment was very clean and private although I have two recommendations: first, it gets kind of chilly at night, so if you get cold easily, I'd suggest bringing a sweatshirt and long pants to sleep in. Also, there are a lot of dogs in the neighborhood that like to start barking at about 6pm and continue until about 12am, so if you're like me and like to go to bed early, I'd suggest bringing earplugs or else you'll be very upset at yourself for not doing so. Another plus about having Roxie as a host is that she can book a massage for you to be done in the apartment! It was amazing...90 minutes for only 900 pesos. Can't beat that! Also, Tulum is a very small town, so everything is within walking distance except the beaches which are about an hour walk away if you choose to do so. I felt safe in the neighborhood as well, so overall, I would definitely recommend Roxie as a host.
