The space

Thank you for looking at our piece of Paradise... This very quaint Mexican style apartment is surrounded by a lush tropical garden, laden with exotic birds in the mornings. WE have a lovely Mexican outdoor kitchen decorated in Typical Mexican decor, Live like us EXPATS, There is nothing like this in Tulum, You will love having your coffee in the mornings watching the many exotic birds singing to you, The outdoor Mexican kitchen will be the highlight of your stay wirh us, Take a look at the great pics, Maria and I have spent a lot of time getting the perfect typical kitchen designed, There is nothing like it here in Tulum except the other two apartments we have with outdoor kitchens, We are located in a very quiet neighborhood in the south end of town, We are a 10 minute drive to the beach or a 30 minute bike ride, To the middle of town it is a 6 to 8 minute bike ride. Most of our guests ride bikes WE have plenty of secure parking. The pool is only used by 4 apartments. It is so quiet you can almost hear the beautiful butterflies flying around. There are beautiful exotic birds singing in the mornings. So very rarely is anyone in the pool. Shoot us an email and ask your questions. If this property is not available, check out our other properties we have listed. We can add a single bed to sleep 3 persons with no problema.

Mara and I make our living from our Airbnb rentals. We strive to give yo the best value for your vacation dollar. We know you will have great experience here.. We have 3 apartments at this location, all with sexy outdoor kitchens and we live in the 4th apartment,
"all over the world the one with the deepest pockets owns the nicest piece of beach. Part of what makes tulum so special is that the beach (the nicest on the continent and arguably in the world) is protected by national parks and development is very limited to ensure it's integrity for all today and for future generations. So most services aren't on the beach but are in town. That's why the location of these apartments is so good. It's quiet, peaceful, tucked in the jungle only a 5 min walk to town. The air is clean and crisp filtered by all the trees. The beach is more of an excursion - as often as you want by cab (about 7 mins) or by bike rental (about 25 min ride)."


By far the nicest apartment in Tulum under 70 USD at night ! We have a great location far enough away from the noise of downtown and close enough to walk or bike to everywhere.Most of our guests bike everywhere. We have a very reliable bike rental .Taxis are relatively inexpensive. We are located in a residential neighborhood, not in the noisy center of town. Many Saturday nights all the guests get together with us for a good Texas barbq. I specialize in the best Texas style ribs you ever put in your mouth.Just ask and we are ready.

Take a look at the best deal in Tulum. We have 3 comfortable apartments with beautiful Garden and pool. We keep our prices down and keep them rented 100%. . You cannot get a better deal especially for the money. We are located on the south end of Tulum close to Tulum's world class beaches and walking distance to all of downtown and the economical restaurants. The neighborhood is residential and has no commercial businesses. It is a mix of a few locals and mostly foreigners with nice homes in the area.Tulum is a new little town and is growing very fast.
All apartments are nicely furnished, have complete kitchen, relaxing pool, parking, hammocks and spacious bathrooms, This particular apartment has a queen bed and a single bed.. very nice porch with table and rocking chairs.
We provide; towels, drinking water., FREE pickup from bus station and a free dime tour of Tulum!
Plus, We have a Texas BBQ grill, hot water, internet wifi, air conditioned, ceiling fans, private entrance, Bike parking,
Very quiet and peaceful, close to bus station,
We have lived in Tulum for 16 years and I know the value of your tourist dollar. WE live on premises so we can attend to any issue or question immediately.
We have a doctor on call 24 hours that can make house calls.

Tulum has so much to offer and with our experience here we can guide you to some of the most exciting things to do as swimming with the turtles in Akumal, which is FREE. Another is the Tulum Monkey Sanctuary which is an unbelievable adventure that is very inexpensive. Close to our home is Cenote Crystal, only a short bike ride to one of natures wonders. You can spend an entire day here.

Thanks for looking at one of our fine properties. I have lived in Tulum for 17 years and have been coming here since 1990. I bought a beaxh lot before anyone was here back in 2000,. The beach road was so bad it took 2 hours to get to town from LaZebra, If it rained you could snorkel in the pot holes. If you had a VW it would almost disappear, We had camp fires on the beach at night and tp a hundred folks would show up and tell their stories, Things have sure changed.Now you can,t have a fire, Back then a hut on the beach was under $10 usd, Everyone could afford the beach. WOW, look at now, The beach road is so crowded it takes longer to get to LaZebra than with all the pot holes were there,
The rooms have gone from $10 usd to up to $1500 usd a night. Everyone on the beach had to come to town to eat as there were no restaurants on the beach. Now hardly anyone comes to town to these fine restaurants as there are 100,s on the beach and sometimes 4 times as expensive as in the pueblo,
Now take a look at staying in town if the beach is out of your budget. In most cases you can stay a week in the pueblo for what is costa for one day on the beach, The nearest beach is only a 10 minute drive , Most of our guests ride bikes and the beach is a 30 minute ride and most of the way there is a bike trail.
Most of our properties are in LaVeleta which is a residential area where all the growth of Tulum is, Some streets are srill unpaved and there are roosters in the streets which crow in the mornings, All this is what gives Tulum it,s mystical charm,,
WE have literally hundreds of great economical restaurants in downtown and you can get a fantastic plate of Enchaldas for $60 pesos which is $3usd,
With the dollar being so strong against the peso you can have a very inexpensive vacation here in Mystical Tulum.
Maria and I have over 900 great reviews, We thank you for looking at our property and we hope to see you soon in Mystical Tulum. Tulum is still very affordable if you stay in the pueblo,

WE hope to see you soon in paradise

For the money, you can't beat this. Pros: close to town, safe neighborhood, responsive hosts, pool, birds, outdoor kitchen, large apartment, and friendly staff. Cons: far from beach road, not the same unit as listed on the airbnb ad, lots of construction in the neighborhood, no mosquito net over bed, A/C is set at a temperature that takes all night to cool down the apartment, and WiFi is weak. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling on a budget. You will need to take cabs to the beach road if you don't have a car, something to consider; otherwise, I think this place is great for what you pay.

WE thank Andres for his stay with us in Paradise, WE welcome them back anytime, Maria and I live in one of the 4 apartments on the premises, We are located in the south end of Tulum, The entire town is not close to the beach, If you are biking it it is a 30 minite bike ride or a 10 minute drive, The beach gets crowded and in many cases it is better to ride a bike because parking gets limited, There is construction everywhere in Tulum even on the beach. Tulum is the fastest growing city in the world and no matter where you stay there is construction close, To address Andres concerns, Maria and I live in one of the 4 apartments in our complex, The ac has a remote control and is in spanish and some folks don,t understand the buttons, Andres never asked how to lower or raise the temp control and we are only 30 feet from the apartment he was in,, WE did move him to an upstairs apartment which is identical to the one he reserved, The reason for this was we had 4 apartments tashed by some Airbnb guests and we had to shift our guests around to make sure everyone had a nice place to stay, His unit was exactly as the one he reserved except the artwork on the Wall, As far as mosquito nets we have never needed them. The reason you need mosqioto nets here is if you do not have screens on the Windows and AC, If you are in any part of downtown you will need a car, bike or taxi to get to the beach, The beach is very expensive which the lowest nightly is $300usd to $3,000usd a night. This is why our lovely apartments are always (URL HIDDEN) addition to the high rates on the beach the reataurants are 3 to 4 times as expensive as in town. We try to keep our lovely apartments priced for folks on a Budget who love a great vacation, WE hope to see you son in Paradise,

Mr. Tulum and Mrs. Tulum truely live up to their name. Amazing hosts! Very knowledgable of such great town , in and out. They gave us all the best tips on where to eat and hot spots in town. Both great people, we personally shared a dinner with them and had a great conversation(Mr. Tulum needs to write a book.) We enjoyed our stay. Our apartment was very clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. Great location, walking distance to the center of town with great restaurants, night life and shops. Also, very close to the beach by taxi or car. I highly recommend your stay at one of Mr. Tulums propeties, you will not regret it. Can't wait to come back!

Nice place, almost a private swimming pool. During the night we left outside a small empty backpack and our daughter little stuffed animal and both get stolen. A part from that we have a good stay. No much communications with the owners.

WE thank these guys for their stay with us in paradise, What a lovely family, AS far as the daughter missing her bag and stuffed animal 1. We live 40 feet from the door to the apartment where they stayed, WE were never informed it was missing, 2, WE have never had anything like this happen abd it is very odd, WE do have a lot of animals here such as raccoons and ant eaters. One of them could have gotten off with them in the night, Maria and I were the only ones here, WE put in our guest letter 4 times to please let us know immediately if there is a problem and we will get it attended to immediately as we have 4 staff on call 24 hours a day, WE are looking for the missing articles.

An oasis! Really enjoyed our stay. The pool was lovely and refreshing. The beds were comfortable. Nice large shower. The only drawback was the location, which was a little farther out of town than I would have liked.

WE thank these lovely guests for their stay in out Oasis, WE are located in the south end of town, which is the area called LaVeleta,.and for first time visitors the location may seem a little far, We are just far from the center of town to have peace and quiet and no noise from the bars and restaurants, Closer to town is very noisy util 4 in the morning, If you are not a aprty person we have a perfect location, Thus area is the fastest growing in the world per capita. WE hope to see you again in paradise

This place is AWESOME!!!! Raymond and Maria were such gracious hosts. They took as around town the first night and showed us all the best places to eat and even took us to a fabulous little restaurant the first evening ( we arrived very late after a long long flight). Everything was spotless and well taken care of. They have a beautiful garden and all the staff were friendly and efficient. Their cab driver Jose took care of us too! They were also responsive quickly if we needed anything. Mostly the setting was so unique and lovely. It surpassed expectations. We would definitely reccommend this spot to fellow travellers Lynn and Liam

Raymond and Maria have a beautiful house that was very comfortable and clean. They were very responsive with my requests and questions and also very friendly. Easy access to Tulum town and beach if you have a mode of transportation. I rented a bike and rode everywhere. It was easy. Even riding to the beach is easy if you are comfortable riding a bike. There's a bike lane most of the way to the beach. I even walked into town a few times and it was no problem. Not far from restaurants, and cabs are cheap. When I arrived I walked here from the ADO bus and it was easy to find thanks to the directions provided. Overall a nice peaceful, but short, stay. Highly recommended.

Hey, I’m Raymond!

WOW, we have almost 1000 great reviews! Take a look. SEEN THE NEWS? It is in all the papers worldwide: Tulum is the FASTEST GROWING CITY in the world. Book your trip now to enjoy this paradise, which is basically still secluded and not crowded.
If you choose one of our great affordable properties you will be experiencing life as a local, When you arrive you will see Jose in the street sellings cold cocos from his 3 wheel bike (Mayan Limo). Our neighboor hood is full of Mexican culture, In the mornings enjoy the roosters crowing in the morning and the singing of all the colorful tropical birds, While enjoying your coffee, Our neighborhood is very safe. WE keep our prices affordable throughout the year so our guests can enjoy our true Mexican charm,
You will love our restaurant tour of the great places we have the privilage of enjoying evey day. Most the street signs are hand made by the locals as Tulum is a new Mexican Pueblo and has few street signs,
Tulum is Mother Nature at her best from the Sian Kaan Reserve to the beautiful cenotes and there are literally thousands of them, we have many archological sites to visit and most folks learn more here than they they did in school about the Mayan civilization,
We specialize in affordable vacation rentals, , Enjoy living like all the locals and have a true taste of Mexican Culture. All of our properties are in the same area, Some have bumpy streets, We are very professional and manage only first class properties, so naturally we get first class guests. Please read our reviews, as they speak for themselves. I have 16+ years living in Tulum and 27 years in Mexico. My wife Maria and I know perfectly what a visitor needs to have a great time here in paradise. We offer the amenities and service that you need. I moved to Tulum over 15 years ago. That is why people call me Mr. Tulum and Maria, my wife, Mrs. Tulum.

Maria does most of the day to day operations of our properties. She is a real people person and gives everyone such personal attention. She is Mexican, and knows everyone here to help you in any way from tours to doctors. We live on the premises of 4 properties, and are only several hundred yards from the other properties we manage. We also have a fantastic manager named Martin. I have tons of good information on where to eat, what to do, and where to go. We are a good source of free info about our paradise. It is a privilege to live here in this beautiful place, and if time permits, we try to give you a tour of Tulum when you arrive.

Maria and I like to travel around this beautiful country, but usually after a few days we wonder why we left Tulum and really miss our little piece of paradise. This is a business for us, so it is not just to have a room rented every now and then. Take a look at our reviews, and you’ll see the pride we put into our properties.
We know you will enjoy your stay, and we will do our best to make it your best vacation ever. We keep our prices very fair and if you compare, we are a fraction of the price for any comparable housing. We are almost always occupied. Check out our reviews.

Tulum is PARADISE but it is not Disneyland. Tulum has many dirt streets, and lots of dust because of all the construction, being the fastest growing city in the world per capita. . The dog catcher does not have a truck so right now there are stray dogs. There are very few street signs in town so things can be a challenge to find. With all this, we have the best beaches in the world, and we love it here! We only manage properties in the pueblo; none on the beach, and we try to keep our prices very affordable. We think you will enjoy being part of the neighborhood, and in so doing, become less of a tourist, and more of a traveler.

Come enjoy Tulum now, as it has so much of that charm only a small town in Mexico can give you.
We love the wonderful restaurants in the pueblo, and this is why we share our passion with a free guided tour when you arrive. We will show you where all the great restaurants are located, how to get to the beach, where the banks and ATM machines are, and where the supermarket is located.

Raymond and Maria
