Sirena met us in downtown Tulum and led us to her magical house in the jungle as it was dark by the time we made it there. We loved the house and the location was transporting. As we had a vehicle we could easily have the jungle house as a base and make trips out and about from there, always to return to the jungle paradise! Birds serenaded us every morning and the home is natural and beautiful and welcoming, just like Sirena! Thank you!!
Magical is the right description. This is an unforgettable home and experience that will feed my imagination and soul for years to come. I assumed going to Tulum meant staying on the beach and having an ocean view. While that has its merits, there was just something so special and calming about staying in the jungle. The most at peace and sense of grounding I can remembering feeling in some time. And the beach is still just a short drive - as are many cenotes - making our jungle home all the more special to come back to at the end of the day. The graciousness and warmth of the home and surrounding property is equally reflected in Erika - our host. She knows the secret she's uncovered there and is more than happy to share it with others. If you haven't thought about staying away from the beaches in Tulum, think again and try something different. You won't regret it.
Place was great. Literally on the beach but elevated in the tress so private. great from a romantic time. hope to go again sooner than later
A magical experience. I have been around the world and this is one of the most memorable spots I have ever stayed in. It started with the incredible communication with Poly and Erika the hosts, through there complete attention to setting up my trip to the most beautiful hut in all of Tulum. This is a rustic beauty that makes you feel like you are on another planet. The ocean is deafening, the seclusion is memorizing and the access to the beach and great restaurants is second to none. If you want privacy, views, space and an experience of a lifetime you can't go wrong. I will certainly be back soon (and I rarely go to the same place twice). 10 out of 10.
Lovely little house a short walk into town with some cute local fruit and veg stores on the walk from town. Tons of space for relaxing both inside and outside. The patio outside the main house is a particularly nice spot to sit and chill. The bungalow is also very sweet, and it can comfortably sleep 6 (although the 2 in the living room will not have a mosquito net).
Downsides are that it is a little dark in the house, it is actually about a 30min cycle ride to the beach (lots of people cycling though) and it can be a bit noisy at night (dogs, cockerels, cars).
Still recommended though :)
PS - Tip: avoid Rincon Pablano restauarnt at the crossroads with the main street. Horrible, rude service, and disgusting food.
super cozy little house, we enjoyed our stay.
Erika is extremely friendly, flexible and accommodating and her handmade house is lovely. Located more on the outskirts of town it was more quiet and rural compared to another place we stayed in downtown Tulum. However, we were there on a Saturday night and the next door neighbor BLASTED music all evening until after 11pm. No way to escape it except for earplugs - not very conducive for relaxation or romantic connection. But Sunday night was quiet. Always a good idea to bring ear plugs to Mexico if you're not used to dogs barking and roosters crowing at all hours.
The house is unique and beautiful, a bit spare but elegantly so. More towels would be helpful. The spiral shower is really fun! Found a massive spider in the bathroom so if you're squeamish about bugs, this may be to rural and open of a house for you. But again, gorgeous house, good location away from downtown and a quick drive to the beach.
Erika was exceptionally accommodating and lovely to deal with and we loved the house. Thank you Erika!
An absolutely fantastic guest. Communicative, respectful of the house rules and clean.
Left an immaculate apartment and was very nice and overall fantastic.
5/5 stars on all categories. Recommended.
