Property description

Awarded Casa Perla del Mar Top Vacation Rental in Tulum again in 2013, making it three years in a row; 2011, 2012 and 2013. Designed by acclaimed architect Ismael Diaz, Casa Perla is a premiere Mediterranean -style villa along the Mayan Riviera. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or an unforgettable vacation with family and friends. This unique and spacious home is nestled between the blue Caribbean and the luscious Mayan jungle. To insure your total relaxation, our staff is available 6 days a week to clean and prepare dinner upon request. Cost of food is not included.
With meticulous attention to detail, Casa Perla reflects the rich color, texture and artistry of the Yucatan. It features unique hand stenciling throughout the home as is traditional in the beautiful haciendas of the region. All of the doors, cabinets and furniture are locally handmade with the finest craftsmanship.
Three of the 4 bedrooms have king-size beds and the 4th has 1 double bed and 2 singles - perfect for children.


Kitchen detail: Casa Perla boasts two well-appointed kitchens with gorgeous Mexican granite countertops. You will arrive to find each fully stocked including a coffee maker, blender and microwave. The downstairs kitchen is poolside so you are just steps away from an ice-cold Mexican beer or chips and freshly made guacamole.

Each of Casa Perla’s kitchens have a view of the jungle and the stunning Mayan sunset. It’s not unusual to see an amazing array of colorful birds. Our binoculars and books will help you to identify them though it will be easy to spot our gorgeous pink flamingos!

Outdoor detail: In addition to our verandas, Casa Perla has a rooftop deck with stunning 360-degree views. Wake up early and listen to the waves crashing on the shore as you watch the sun rise over the Caribbean. In the daytime the verandas are a perfect place to appreciate the flora and fauna of the Mayan jungle. There are literally thousands of rainbow-colored flowers and birds. And to see the sun set over the ancient Mayan jungle is breathtaking.

Casa Perla is only 50 meters (165 feet) from the water’s edge. Guests enjoy great shelling along the secluded beach or spectacular snorkeling and scuba diving directly in front of the house. If you visit between mid-May and November you can experience one of nature’s most unforgettable sights – Loggerhead, Green and Hawksbill turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in May and the hatchlings dash for the sea in November.

Car: Recommended

Tankah Bay is only 7 km from the ruins of Tulum and the town of Tulum as well. The ruins of Coba are only a fifty minute drive from Tankah and the world famous ecological park of Xel-Ha is only fifteen minutes away. There are a multitude of cenotes in the area, which are large aquifers, both subterranean and surface level where you can take a refreshing swim in the heat of the day. Playa del Carmen, with all its shopping and nightlife is forty minutes away and Akumal, another beautiful beach town famous for turtle sightings only twenty minutes away. Tankah Bay is surrounded by a coral reef that can be reached either by boat or by kayak; a wonderful snorkeling experience.

Casa Perla is located 50 meters from the water's edge and in May through November, you can experience one of nature's miracles. Over 150 Leatherback turtles come to nest and hatch on the beach in front of the house. The leatherback is an endangered species and these turtles have been nesting at this same spot for hundreds of years. You can check them out in our pictures or on Youtube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pq0XxTUCLU

About the owner: We live in Northern California which is also a beautiful part of the world.

Why the Owner Chose Tulum:
We built this house because we love the area, being so close to both the ocean and the jungle. It is a magical location, very relaxing and very out of the way.The entire house is hand built, from the tile work to the cabinets to the paintings. It is a very unique property and our guests have loved staying here.
