Interaction with Guests
Guest will decide the level of interaction. We can provide great information about the area, suggestions, etc, or leave our guests completely private.
We live in the house on the other side of the pool, which is detached from the cabana and it is about 15 meters, or 45 away.
our location is halway between the Tulum beach and Coba archeological sites
there are many other archeoolgical sites nearby, such as Ek-Balam, and Chichen Itza
numerous cenotes just minutes away from property
best way to navigate the area is to have a rental car, since there are too many attractions nearby ..taxis are not expensive and we can arrange a private taxi driver to take you for a daytrip. Pickup from Cancun airport can be arranged for an extra charge as well.
Other Things to Note
the area here is safe, and with relatively few bugs and insects. Mosquitos are few, and mostly only in rainy season, which is Speptember-October.
Erika & Chito sont des hôtes très charmants. Leur accueil chaleureux , la propreté du lieu, la proposition de nous montrer toute la propriété et de nous donner des infos sur les environs nous ont tout de suite fait nous sentir "chez nous".
Tout était exactement comme décrit et si ce n'était pas pour un peu de bruit depuis la route, on dirait que c'est le paradis - absolument parfait pour visiter Tulum et les environs.
Merci Erika, Merci Chito
Super séjour! Erika et son mari son des hôtes charmants et aux petits soins.
La cabana est très mignonne et bien équipée.
Le logement est très bien situé à proximité du site archéologique de coba et à 20km de l'agitation de tullum.
This is our second home in Tulum, we always love it here!
We have just spent a fantastic week at Erika's small piece of paradise. Although only 20 minutes away from tulum and its amazing beaches, the tiny village of Macario Gomez allows a real Mexican experience. Erika's place offers just the right balance of comfort and laid back atmosphere to enjoy a relaxed vacations. Our 2 year old had so much fun with cats, dogs and birds around the property. Erika had a little park for him to sleep, which was just perfect. Breakfast is delicious and varied, which make for a good start of the day. We are so glad that we had decided to book the place for the week. From there we could make all our day trips (Coba ruins, Playa del Carmen, Akumal, various Cenote, etc.) with the car (mandatory if you want to truly enjoy you stay there).
Thank you Erika for a great week!
The listing was accurate - but in no way does the listing convey just how welcome Erika and Chito will make you feel when you're there. Truly, this is no ordinary rental. When you're there, you're family. Nonetheless, if you want a more quiet and removed experience, that's fine too. The property is plenty big enough to enjoy the gorgeous setting without feeling like you can't get a moment of privacy. It's stunning - and wait until all those orchids bloom! Why would all the those tourists to Tulum choose their crowded, impersonal, and drab accomodations when they could stay at this place? Yes - it's a solid 10 miles away from town, but with a car it's easy, and other guests had no issues getting a cab when needed. Morning breakfasts were delicious and ample!
We are both "pet people" and Erika and Chito have two sweet dogs, three cats, a couple of peacocks, chickens, and a tucan they're currently nursing back to health before it's released back into the wild. We loved sitting on the porch of our cabana, enjoying a good wifi connection and a glass of wine when their sweet little mutt Negra would emerge for a little attention (and perhaps a taste of whatever I might have been snacking on at the time!) Still the pets are not allowed in any of the cabanas, so people with allergies need not worry. They're spotless.
We spent pleasant 3 days in a cabana near tulum (20min by car). the cabanas are quite big,clean enough (you are right in the "jungle" so there will be a few bugs), with convenient interior, a nice shower, a outdoor kitchen and a cool pool in front of the main house.
Erica is a friendly host, serves a good breakfast and was flexible with our special wishes (vegan raw low fat breakfast;).
Besides she took us to a remote cenote with the opportunity for a private experience and endowed us a dreamcatcher.
So… just go but bring a car :-)
Erika was a wonderful host. The place was really nice and peaceful. She made us nice breakfasts and coffee in the morning and gave us lots of advice on things to do. She also provided extra blankets in case we get cold and gave us some beach towels to use since we didn't bring our own. The cabana is very cute, it also had its own kitchen and Erika had provided purified water for us. I would definitely recommend staying here!

I am a Hungarian born in Slovakia with 25 years living in the US, now in Mexico. Moving to the Yucatan Peninsula has been my dream for the past 17 years, and I was able to finally follow my dream and build my very private paradise here. I love nature, animals, jungles, cenotes, and the sea. My husband is a local Mayan, who knows the area very well. We can give you lots of advise about places to visit in the area.
