“Cielo” at Avalon, Tulum is a beautiful loft studio space boasting a large private roof terrace, outdoor dining area, queen-sized bed, kitchenette, bathroom, garden and pool. Designed to be light and airy, it has ceiling fan, large windows and A/C should you find you need it.

The space

Located in magical Tulum on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, Avalon was designed and created with love as a peaceful haven amongst the trees; a comfortable home-away-from-home in which to relax, recharge and nourish the spirit. Conceived of and built by the owner in 2012, the apartments are set in the same grounds as her home, and include a shared pool area. The grounds are gated, walled-in and secure, and the buildings are nestled among the original jungle trees and wildlife.

Situated in the popular new La Veleta residential area on the south side of Tulum pueblo, it is a unique and charming self-catering rental option consisting of three comfortable apartments in one building; two 2-double-bedroom apartments with garden and open plan living space, and one loft studio with private roof terrace.

A short walk, bike ride or drive from the centre of Tulum pueblo, Avalon is a wonderful vacation rental option for those seeking peace and tranquillity. It is far enough away from the hubbub of town to relax and enjoy the jungle, but close enough for convenience, and a great base from which to explore all the area has to offer: incredible wildlife, fascinating archeological sites, pristine Caribbean beaches, breathtaking cenotes and caverns, lush jungle and peaceful lagoons, to name but a few ideas...

There are many nice restaurants and bars a short distance away, and a fully equipped kitchen / diner is provided in each apartment for home dining (or kitchenette in the case of the loft studio).

Natural therapies / treatments, yoga classes, massage, etc. can be arranged on or off site, and eco-tours happily recommended and arranged.

Having had the privilege to call Tulum home for around twelve years, the owner is happy to share her local knowledge, contacts and tips. She will be pleased to try to accommodate any special requests you may have in order to make your stay as wonderfully memorable as possible.

Please note that this property is not suitable for party-seekers and there is a reason we don't provide TVs... We lovingly suggest you sit instead in front of one of our enormous jungle-garden-facing windows or under one of our beautiful trees if you wish to unwind at home. Avalon is about helping you to reconnect, rather than to disconnect! :) We also require that, as our guest, you comply with some simple house rules to help us minimise our environmental impact.

Cath and the Avalon house are a dream! She is incredibly welcoming and helpful and her studio/rooftop acted as a calming and beautiful place to stay while experiencing Tulum. Can't say enough nice things about this spot!!

We had the perfect stay in Cath's studio apartment. As a host Cath is extremely kind, easy to communicate with, and offered us so much useful information. The apartment is beautiful, clean, equipped with the necessities, and has a perfect balcony for relaxing on in the evenings. We also loved the location - it's a quick walk into town and an easy bike or taxi ride to the beach. We hope to visit Tulum and stay at Avalon again soon!

Cath was great! She hosted us for our honeymoon and we loved the studio and private terrace. The studio was clean and neat. I love that she provides fresh water to drink, rinse, and wash dishes with. Thanks, Cath!

Cath is a fantastic host! She knows the spots and people around town and pointed me to such great yoga, food, scuba, etc. recommendations. Her place is a quick bike ride to the town - only watch-out for solo travelers to be aware of is that this is on a street a few away from the main strip so less lit at night.

Cath is the perfect host. She helped us with any information and recommendations we were looking for. Is ideal for a couple that is looking for a quiet, confortable place. Not in the middle of town, but close enough to get there. We rented a car so were gone all day enjoying the beauty of the region with a mixture of turquoise water beaches, cenotes and the incredible culture of the Mayas, through all the ruins of the region. Highly suggested to rent a car ( private and safe parking in the property) we also had bicycles available....courtesy of host but not 100% garanteed if other guests are there at the same time you are. I would have stayed for months...... You can count with Cath for anything, special beautiful soul to meet. ❤️ Thank you Cath sooooo much. We miss you already

I highly recommended the studio if you're interested in having your own private terrace (equipped with a table and chairs). It was perfect for yoga, catching up on work, and winding down after a day of exploring. The apartment itself is perfectly adequate for a couple. Well-stocked, working internet, A/C, and good airflow.. Secure property. Cath was so kind as to lend us bikes, which we relied on everyday. Noise was the only real irritant during our stay (construction, dogs, horns) but that's the area right now (note: earplugs are provided). Last but not least - Cath was a great host, informative and always available. Will, her assistant, was also kind and helpful with the bikes.

Wow, what a magical, serene and special home that Cath has created. I was lucky enough to stay in the middle apartment with friends, which I enjoyed so much I extended my stay in this studio top floor apartment. Cath is exceptionally welcoming, helpful and kind. During my time there I was quite unwell and she was very comforting, even calling a personal doctor friend to assist me when necessary. As for the space, it is relaxing, clean and spacious home. Beautifully designed architecturally, it lends itself to dreaming and relaxing and sometimes not even wanting to leave the magical bubble of Avalon! And the birds in the trees were amazing!! I found it very peaceful being there at any time. There is a little construction happening nearby but really in Tulum, where isn't there?! The house is a short distance to walk to local restaurants and actually is nice to be set away from town a little, plus the bikes were great. I couldn't recommend Avalon more, other than I did not want to leave! It's a much of a feeling when you're there than it is practical enjoyments. And sitting up on the roof terrace looking at the moon and stars whilst a local Mexican radio played old classics was one of the most wonderful experiences. I will be returning as soon as possible. Thank you Cath!

I find it hard to fit into boxes! :)

Originally from Wales, I have been blessed to call Tulum my home for twelve years, and more recently to have designed and created Avalon: my dream home and three self-contained self-catering apartments with shared pool area, nestled amongst the trees and amazing local wildlife. I put my heart and soul into the project, and a lot of thought into the details, and am now delighted to be able to share them with lovely people like you, so that you can appreciate the magic of Tulum too! It's an ideal place for those who want to reconnect with themselves and with nature, and a wonderful base for exploring the marvels that Tulum has to offer. I'll be happy to share my local knowledge and contacts with you to ensure you have a wonderful holiday to remember!
