Tankah villa description

Casa Caracol: A five-bedroom beachfront villa in the Mayan Riviera, on a pristine private beach five minutes from Tulum.

The villa sleeps ten to eleven people, and among its various amenities it has a beachfront palapa with lounging chairs, a balcony with a shade-covered hammock, covered parking for two cars, a large charcoal grill, stereo system, free WiFi, and an ocean kayak. It has a full kitchen with fridge and freezer, gas stove and oven, microwave, and pots, pans, dishes and utensils. All bedrooms are air-conditioned with individual temperature control. Housekeeping service is provided six days a week and laundry service is available. Catering and spa services are available upon request.

Casa Caracol is 60 miles south of the Cancun Airport, five minutes from Tulum, once a great Mayan city and now a destination for great beaches and beachside restaurants.

There are two bedrooms on the first floor. One has a queen size bed, a bathroom en suite, and views of the beach. The second bedroom on the first floor has two twin beds, and looks out at the garden. On the second floor there are three bedrooms. The beachside bedroom has a queen size bed and a small balcony above the beach. Another bedroom has a double bed and a twin bed. The third bedroom on the second floor has a king size bed, and from this bedroom you can see the vast, undeveloped jungle, opposite the beach.

There is a large deck on the second floor that stretches around the house to give views of both the ocean and jungle. On this deck, there is a hammock with a bamboo covering for shade. This deck is a great place to sit down and enjoy drinks and snacks, and to look at the stars at night.

Casa Caracol has a covered carport with room for two cars, and leading up to this carport is a driveway with room for two more cars. On the side of the house opposite the beach, there is a sandy garden with palm trees and aloe vera plants. As you walk towards the beach from this side, there is a large charcoal grill with room to grill more food than you could ever eat in one meal.

There are also various beachside restaurants within walking distance of the house, including a restaurant two doors down where you can sip margaritas on the beach. Next to this restaurant is a little shop with necessities such as sunblock and medicines. There is a famous natural cenote (underwater cave) across the road, great for scuba diving and snorkeling.

Casa Caracol is on the beach of Tankah Bay, a gated residential community, far from the large resorts that dot the shores of the Mayan Riviera. The waters of Tankah Bay are home to a barrier reef, keeping the waves small and providing excellent snorkeling opportunities. Tulum is a five-minute drive from the house, and Xel-Ha is under 10 minutes away. Also 10 minutes away is the Cenote Dos Ojos, which was featured on BBC’s “Planet Earth” series. Although the activities in the area are endless, Casa Caracol is the perfect place to just relax in a hammock and enjoy the ocean breeze.

                  • Akumal Beach View on map

                    The area known as Akumal Beach is best known for its scuba diving and snorkeling. Even if you have never gone scuba diving before, stop at the Akumal Dive Center and take the 3-Hour PADI Resort Course, and spend the afternoon exploring the coral reefs. There are a few beachside restaurants in Akumal, and the waves are very calm because of the barrier reef.

                    The main road of the town of Tulum is lined with small shops. There are bread shops, grocery stores, internet cafes, and banks, as well as souvenir shops. Parking is abundant, and the center of town makes for a nice walk.

                    This is the site of the ancient Mayan city of Tulum. A great historical attraction, but don't forget the sunblock - it gets very sunny during the day. There is a small beach to cool off after the archeological tour. http://mytulumtravel.com/

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  Why the Owner Chose Tankah:
                  We chose to build our vacation home in Tankah because of its quiet, secluded atmosphere away from the large resorts in the Mayan Riviera. It is very close to the historic town of Tulum, yet the only sounds you can hear from the house are of the waves lapping up on the shore and the ocean breeze rattling the tree branches. At night, you can go outside and see countless stars in the sky since there are no lights lighting up the sky.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  The house is five minutes from the Tulum ruins, and within driving distance of the ruins at Coba and Chichen Itza. A short drive takes you to the Sian Ka'an biosphere reserve, where miles of sandy beaches are preserved since development is prohibited. We own the lot adjacent to Casa Caracol, so you can enjoy views of the ocean and horizon without obstruction from other properties. Since one of the owners, Sandy, lives just down the beach, you will always be taken care of and she will answer all your questions throughout your stay.
