About this listing
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!
Ron's place was really cool and Ron was equally an excellent host. He made sure we knew exactly how to navigate to his place and welcomed us warmly. He has a great binder with suggestions and the location is great to be able to access the beach, the ruins and some cenotes. You'll need a car to do all of those things but parking wasn't an issue either. Ron and Katherine made the space a really comfortable and somewhere you'd want to come home to after a day of exploration or beach lounging. Thanks for a great stay!
Mark & I arrived Friday April 24 & stayed through May 2. We finally found, after, driving by their driveway a few times becuase the sign was pulled due to road work, & Ron was out on his bicycle looking for us, both Ron & Catherine welcomed us with big smiles, & were amazing hosts. All their recommendations in their binder were spot on. Our 1st night Ron sent us to Mateos for dinner which was perfect, great food & fun staff. Our stay couldn't be better with Ron & Catherine, looking forward to returning, visiting with Ron & Catherine & Tulum. Thanks again Ron & Catherine you both are so wonderful!!!
Ron & Catherine were the perfect hosts & the loft was even better then the pictures! They went out of their way to ensure I had a great experience- from helping me get a rental car to arranging for a massage at the loft. They were always available for any questions I had with awesome answers & detailed directions. The pool area was beautiful & usually empty & serene. The beaches were close by & absolutely gorgeous. Catherine & Ron truly love Tulum. I will be back next year for sure.
Ron and Catherine were there immediately to greet us when we arrived and they were most helpful throughout our stay. Ron has a binder he has compiled with lots of suggestions on great beaches, good restaurants and sights to see.
Our place was comfy and relaxing. We had everything we needed to make our stay a great one. I don't think the pictures of this place do it justice. I would definitely stay here again.
Ron's loft was as described. He provided extra towels for the pool/beach as well as drinking water. The A/C was perfect for getting a great night's sleep. There were many great restaurant and activity suggestions in the binder, places you might not have read about while planning your trip. I would definitely recommend staying with Ron and will be doing so again myself.
Thanks so much for your nice comments and we are so happy you enjoyed the loft and Tulum, we loved having you.
I also wanted to apologize because I just missed leaving a review for you...we would of course welcome you back anytime and I would put in a good word for you if you ever need a reference.
Thanks again for choosing to stay in the jungle loft!
All the best,
The loft is a great place to stay in Tulum! Everything is accurately represented in the listing and Ron is a great host. The informative binder that is in the loft was really helpful. Don't miss out on El Camello Jr.!
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.

About the Host, Ron
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
