Enjoy Tulum in style, luxury and convenience! The jungle loft is furnished with everything you will need to make your Tulum time the best it can be! AC, WiFi, iPod/phone dock, sat TV, pool, full kitchen, living room, jungle views & local guidance.
Tulum Jungle Loft is a fully furnished loft apartment in a newer development only 1/2 mile from downtown Tulum, 3/4 mile from the bus station downtown on the edge of the jungle. We are on the south end of town. The loft is set atop the 3rd floor of a luxury villa and has a spiral staircase up to its private entrance. Sleeping arrangements include 1 queen bed and 1 double futon bed, so it can sleep 1 to 4 people but is ideal for couples or solo travelers.
Some of the amenities include a well equipped gourmet kitchen, air-conditioning, stereo system with iPod sound system, wireless high speed internet access, US satellite TV with plenty of movie channels and a dartboard! There's also a beach bed on the terrace (not shown in pictures) and breakfast nook balcony with a hammock to enjoy the amazing jungle views or just take a siesta.
Then there's the lovely pool in a very quiet common area complete with palapa lounge and bar with a comfortable couch and chairs for chillin by the pool , this really is one of the nicest places to stay in the town of Tulum, especially if you enjoy a few more luxuries and amenities with your accommodations. The sunsets from the loft are breathtaking over the jungle.
We have made our loft a place for living and loving life in Tulum, its not just a vacation rental, you'll find everything you need and more with the details that typically are not offered at other rentals. Please let us know in advance if you have any special requests.
There's a small grocery store and gas station within walking distance as well.
Interaction with Guests
We are like magic helpful ghosts, we will be around if you need us and invisible if you don't. We are open to conversation yet we also respect privacy and timing.
We are close to great restaurants, fresh seafood and local fruit and vegetable stands.
Taxis, scooter and bike rentals are everywhere and are great local town and maybe to the beach, but you'll want a rental car to get the most out of Tulum. Things are spread out here and taxis, tours and transfers will add up versus a rental car and the options it give you.
Other Things to Note
We have a cat named Mosie that lives in the house downstairs. She's mostly an outdoor cat-you may see her in the area. If you like cats, invite her in for a visit. If you don't or you have allergies, just shoo her away and you won't likely see her again. Mosie is a cool cat.
Be cool and everything will stay cool as it is with life in the loft. Other than that have lots of fun as all the people that stay there do!
This is a great apartment for a vacation in Tulum. The apartment was fully equipped with everything that we needed for our stay. Ron was very easy to deal with and when we had a problem with the shower he quickly got it fixed. Ron gave us helpful ideas of things to do in Tulum and surrounding areas. I would recommend having a car as it's just outside the main town of Tulum. We rented a car when we arrived at an affordable place that Ron recommended.
Ron and Catherine were excellent. We arrived late at night and a little bit lost and they were there to offer a welcome and introduction to Tulum and Yucatan with the helpful knowledge locals have!
The place was a great way to start the trip and a very chilled out start in a lovely environment. Having the pool was a great bonus.
Ron's loft is fantastic, and the location is perfect. It has everything you need, including a great sound system! Wi-fi was also great - speedy at all times. As other reviewers mentioned, the "3 ring binder" is fantastic. It has so many tips and helpful information to plan your day. Every place we wanted to visit--and many we did not know about--were listed in the book.
We felt very safe the entire time, and the neighbors were very friendly. We did have a rental car which I strongly recommend for anyone visiting Tulum.
If you're headed to Tulum, definitely consider staying here. Oh, and definitely eat tacos at Antojitos La Chiapaneca which is right down the street from Ron's.
The loft was set up well for an extended stay with many possibilities for self catering. It's a lovely, comfortable place just a bit out of town. We tend to explore a lot during the day and night so we could only take advantage of a few of the great amenities. We especially enjoyed hanging out at the pool in the evening. The studio is vaulted up high and as such you can hear the road as well as the neighbors' loud a.c. kick on and off during the night. This is out of Ron's control and we got used to it by the second night.
Ron is a great host, the place is beautiful as seen in the pics, completely clean, prívate and has all comodities you need to enjoy a nice vacation.
I would absolutely recommend to stay here and of course when Im back in Tulum i will repeat!
Very nice top floor unit with full kitchen and bathroom. The deck and swimming pool are great. The only downside is you can hear a bit of road noise from the highway. And the internet was down most of the time we were there... But who cares about that. Go swimming, go to the beach, go eat some Gringa pastor tacos which are amazing and right down the street! The hosts were very helpful As we arrived quite late on the first night, David was there to let us into the unit and give us the keys! Thanks!
Ron's place is lovely, and super-safe within a gated entrance. Everything we needed was there and we received a lovely warm welcome from David who was managing the property on Ron's behalf.
As well as Ron's really helpful guide to Tulum (which we made great use of!), David, and our friendly neighbours gave us lots of great recommendations on what not to miss. Don't miss the Quesidillas at Don Diegos. It's a small stand/restaurant (that's not always open) and the quesidillas are delicious, yet cheap.
We couldn't really have asked for more from the apartment. Like Ron, we also recommend that you hire a car if you can. The apartment was a little further from the beach than we thought.
Many thanks to Ron, David and neighbours for a great stay! Peter & CJ.

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 sunrises, sunsets and incredible beaches and favorite beach clubs. 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
