Property description

Consider renting my casita for your tropical escape. The free standing 2 story palapa (thatched roof) structure has 2 bedrooms below the open ceiling and 1 bath and the house is just across the street from the marvelous Tulum beach. There is a full kitchen with solar fridge and gas stove. The upstairs and downstairs both have decks and there are plenty of spaces to find yourself in a hammock or under a shady palm tree.

The house is on a shared lot with plenty of palms and garden space between the other two units on the property. The other two units belong to the same owner and are also available for rent in case you need more space. The other two free standing structures have one king sized bed and private baths and kitchens. It is a perfect set up for a large family or just a few friends who need some space but want to be together.
Up and down the road are cenotes Salvaje and Encantado and we are 3 km to the world renowned Sian Kann biosphere, where the ‘earth meets the sky’. Too we are a short (20 minute drive) to Tulum Pueblo. There are restaurants, bars and some new shops a short walk away.

Yoga classes close by or arrange for private instruction with owner. Opportunity for tours in the biosphere or in the adjacent areas of Muyil, Ek Balam or Valladoloid. Let us host you here in Tulum for an unforgettable holiday.

Other Amenities

  • Solar power means conserving. The fridge, internet, lights and our water depend on the sun and the 4 batteries where we store it as energy. So, each time you plug in, you are using part of your energy budget. So, please be considerate of our power and use as little as you can to be comfortable. The plumbing is very sensitive. If you put toilet paper in the toilet it blocks the system and we will have some big problems that you don’t want to deal with on your vacation. So, please, put the toilet paper in the bin next to the toilet. There is purified drinking water on the counter. I will replace it when it is empty. The last thing you need is a stomache bug on vacation. I like to wash lettuce and other veggies that you don’t peel or cook with that water. There are some blue drops by the sink that are disinfectant drops and if you put those in the water where you wash the lettuce or apples, they make them perfectly clean and safe for eating raw. ...moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am a native of Boston, Massachusetts who moved to Tulum to rediscover life and teach yoga. I built the house you may rent while I lived there before I had lights, neighbors and a paved road out front. I lived there for 3 years before moving to the other units and starting to rent this one. I love sharing the hidden treasures of Tulum and look forward to helping you find something special in your vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Tulum:
Tulum is easy to love.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Across the street from the beach is more private, the energy calmer, and the prices more realistic and these properties are more authentically Tulum.
