Vida Silvestre was the perfect getaway spot. We felt like we were in a gorgeous tropical treehouse. The location is great- right on the "strip". Beach access is super easy through one of two hotels right across the road. There's also super easy access to other restaurants, yoga, and shops. The villas are exactly as pictured, private, well maintained and beautifully designed. Laury was wonderful, she met us right when we arrived, provided fresh water and suggestions for breakfast spots and yoga. If we're ever lucky enough to visit Tulum again we will definitely stay at Vida Silvestre again. :)
Laury met us upon arrival, escorted us to our room and was lovely. Rooms were well appointed, simple, eco-chic. The only drawback was the non-stop sound of a generator close by - a pretty common occurrence in Tulum.
Our stay at Vida Silvestre was truly spectacular! Laury was inredibly freindly, welcoming and accomadating. She provided plenty of helpful recommendations via email before we arrived and in person once we settled in. The villa itself was amazing. It seemed to be one of the few places to stay on the jungle side of the beach road, but having walked up and down the beach several times during the week I didn't see any other place I would rather have stayed. The grounds were imaculately kept (by Oscar) and felt like a true sanctuary. The villa itself felt like a luxury treehouse. We were able to access the beach through Las Ranitas accross the street and used their chairs if we purchased items from their beach menu, which was not a problem because it was very good and not too pricey. The pool on the property was also a delite! It was perfect for a cool dip after a hot day on the beach and perfect for our kids too, as it is tiered with a large shallow portion for them to play.
Overall I highly recommend Vida SIlvestre...we will definitely be back!
This is an excellent vacation rental across the street from one of the less populated, exclusive stretches of beach in the southernmost part of Tulum playa, a short bike ride from the Sian Ka'an arch. We loved it! Very chic yet rustic and casual. Loved the architecture. I explored a lot and really didn't see too many rental house properties like this.
Laury was a wonderful host and Oscar, the caretaker, was very helpful and friendly. We rented Villa #2 and #3, actually so reviews for both are the same.
It's located between 2 great beachfront hotels for excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner cuisine (as well as paid beach club access): Las Ranitas Eco-Boutique Hotel and BeTulum. (Note that Dos Ceibas is now closed.) It's true that there's a generator across the street at one of the private properties between the two hotels, but the noise really isn't terrible. Granted, I'm a hard sleeper.
We loved how the screened-in bedroom lofts upstairs felt like treehouses. My wake-up alarm at 7am each day was the sound of tropical birds.
While overall I'd say it feels very tranquil and private, in reality it's not the *most* private villa lodging since the 5 houses are close to each other and there are no glass windows, only screens. However, there's really not a lot of foot traffic around the property (just Oscar and the maid, and we only saw other guests maybe once or twice a day), and the trees do a nice job of screening the 2nd floor bedrooms -- which are glorious btw.
Be sure to hit the Mayan Clay Spa down the road past Turquesa for one of the most amazing spa treatments you'll find anywhere. Warm clay slurry massaged all over in a tranquil, outdoor palapa. Highly skilled therapists! Not a fancy facility w/pools, sauna, etc. like Yaan Spa 2 doors down, but it's $82 per hour as opposed to $175 per hour, and an absolute must-do for seasoned spa-goers.
Oh, pro tip: the water heaters are small (it's an eco-villa in Tulum, don't forget) so showers have to be super short if you want all hot water. Barely able to fit in shampoo and conditioner in one go (I have long hair), so schedule your showers appropriately if you're not solo.
Note that the rental bikes on property for $10 each per stay (a great price for 3 nights for us) are best for petite people; us tall folks should have rented elsewhere, but who has time to fuss with re-renting, so we just did short jaunts on our bikes and took a taxi to the Tulum Ruins (all the way at the northern tip of the beach) instead of biking there.
Don't expect 24-7 service like a hotel. This is a rental house complex, not a resort. Oscar's super responsive if he is home (he lives on property), but if he's out running errands you have to be patient.
I'd definitely recommend staying here if you are independent!
Laury and the staff were amazing!! Five star service!! I was traveling in Tulum alone and had about a million questions and she happily answered the. All with amazing tips on fun Tulum tgings to do.
The villa was wonderful!! I never wanted to leave my little oasis in the jungle. So much character.
It's close to everything and the beach is directly across the street. There are bikes provided to ride around town.
I highly rescinding staying here as I'd stay again!! Loved it!!
Laury and Oscar were both wonderful and so patient! We managed to lose keys, be unable to figure out the safe, you pick it - and they were readily available to be of assistance (thank you!). The grounds are very well cared for. Beautiful, rustic with plenty of space. Daily maid service was a huge plus - and very high quality. Laury suggested wonderful activities and restaurants in Tulum. Overall an outstanding experience, would definitely encourage friends/family to stay at Vida Silvestre
Vida Silvestre is a beautiful and relaxing place. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Villa 1 is excellent w/ airy high ceilings, a beautiful comfortable bed in which I slept very very well, classic Mayan thatched ceilings & decks. Having a kitchen is great---the produce down in Tulum is very good and relatively inexpensive, and it was wonderful to make home-cooked sit-down meals while on vacation in paradise.
Vida is down at the serene southern end of Boca Paila, a short distance from Sian Ka'an biosphere, and away from the hubbub" (yes, alas there's actually a bit traffic now at the northern end of the "Zona Yoga"). So nice to hear the tides crashing on the beach through the night and in the early morning quiet hours.
Laury the host, and Oscar the property manager made us feel welcome and well cared-for. And the friendly "blue" dog who lives there was a sweet friend. All in all, Vida Silvestre is a gem of a place.
The few detractions were minor: a fairly noisy generator that starts running at around 7ish, through till about 10 or 11pm (noticeable though didn't interfere with sleep…but I'm a heavy sleeper); kitchen tools, dish ware, storage containers are few. Downstairs toilet was a bit dicey--sometimes flushed OK, sometimes sluggish (the upstairs toilet worked well).
Beach access is pretty good…either via upscale BeTulum or the more low-key Aura. It's also pretty quick to drive or bike into the biosphere, and hit the beach at Ultimo Maya….a super low-key local place w/ excellent food and stunning views.
Overall, Vida Silvestre is a wonderful place for a Tulum vacation. Highly recommended!
