Tulum house description
Casa Blanca is a stylish yet affordable vacation house in the chic Mexican Caribbean town of Tulum. Tulum is famous for some of the most beautiful beaches in the world as well as for its cliffside Mayan ruins and prevalent cenotes (from the Mayan 'dzonot', meaning 'well'),caves that contain pools and underwater passageways in their interior, and form a unique recreational backdrop of snorkeling and diving exploration throughout the Yucatan region.
Enjoy your sundrenched beach vacation in the privacy of your own home. Casa blanca is a large, uniquely-designed private house tucked away from hectic city life yet conveniently located within walking distance from downtown shops and restaurants and just an easy 5-minute drive (or enjoyable bicycle ride) to Tulum's pristine beaches. With oversized windows and minimalist detail, this 4 story house was created with complete relaxation in mind; great for a family, couple, or group of close friends. Polished Grey cement interiors keep the house cool year round. The modern kitchen is accented with cool colored glass tiles and a large built-in dining fixture divides the living room and the kitchen, lending an open feel to meals and socializing.
The living room and kitchen face the swimming pool; through a set of double doors the view of the pool is framed by lush, indigenous landscaping. Enjoy an incredible sunset on our spacious roof terrace, high above the treetops...perfect for bird watching and star gazing after dark, or, with it's shady palapa, for daily yoga practice or just hanging out. This stylish private house has 3 separate bedrooms, outdoor showers (poolside), swimming pool, 2 1/2 bathrooms, outdoor grill, TV with streaming Netflix, DVD player, refrigerator, stove and oven. We provide pots, pans and dishes, and utilize the spice rack.
If you would rather avoid overcrowded tourist areas like Cancun or Playa del Carmen you will love Tulum. The pictures of the beaches in the listing are taken from Tulum beaches just five minutes away, wide, glistening stretches of beach that go on for miles. You will be able to enjoy Mayan culture and natural wonders in and around the incredibly unique town of Tulum. We are 1 hour and 45 minutes drive from Cancun airport but you will feel like you are a world away. Our guests enjoy a well balance vacation that includes the beach, relaxing by the pool, cooking and dining at home as well as dining out.
The house will be made ready (with clean sheets and towels) for your arrival. The rates include 1 midweek house keeping for a stay 7 nights or more during the peak season (please schedule this in advance). Low season rates do not include midweek house keeping. Additional maid service available (please book in advance) for an additional fee.
The house sleeps up to 7-8 people (children included), with a king sized master bed, two additional bedrooms, each with a matrimonial sized bed and one with an additional twin, and a pull-out sleeper sofa. Additionally, there is a comfortable hammock on the rooftop, and two cots stored in the master bedroom closet.
We thank you in advance and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you home in Tulum:)

- The town of Tulum essentially offers a two-for-one experience; 'downtown' and 'The Beaches.' They are within a mile distance of one another, but completely different settings. Casa Blanca offers easy access to both. From Casa Blanca you can walk downtown; have coffee and check your email, or borrow a book at the local coffee shop, frequented by locals and tourists alike. Visit the Mexican bakery, or the Italian version, Mot Mot Cafe, for a pastry. Shop the many unique boutiques for art, jewelery, Mexican pottery, masks, and the like, and plan your outdoor adventure at one of the many storefront guided tour companies. The Shantala Spa offers one of the single hour and a half massages you'll get anywhere, and one could easily eat at a different fabulous restaurant- from the most authentic Mexican to Argentinian steakhouses, take-out Thai, brick oven pizza, street-side tamales and tacos and all varieties of assorted fusion cuisine. A short taxi, bus, car or even scooter ride and you can be swimming with sea turtles or swimming through underwater caves, or 'cenotes.' Meanwhile, at La Playa, the Beach, known as the 'Zona Hotelara' or Hotel Zone, is a several-mile stretch of boutique eco-hotels, many of which are solar or wind powered, as Tulum's still developing electrical infrastructure doesn't stretch too far from town. That only adds to the beauty and charm of this uniquely beautiful stretch of beachside cabanas, restaurants, bars, spas and shops, however, and one could easily pass long stretches of time just sauntering down the beach or the narrow street, sunning, people-watching, and just soaking up the relaxed, laid-back, and beautifully non commercial vibe of this extraordinary pocket of the Yucatan....moreless

My daughter and I recently stayed at Casa Blanca and fell in love with this property and the city of Tulum. Casa Blanca is centrally located and very convienent to nearby attractions and the beautiful beaches! A day at the beach is a must although you will be perfectly happy even if you never leave the property! This house is beautifully appointed with local art and the modern design is so open and appealing. Each level of the house offers new views and hidden treasures. We were amazed at how much this house has to offer.... you will not be disapointed with the amenitites at Casa Blanca! Once you enter through the gate you immediately feel like you are in a private paradise. The onsite pool was especially a hit with my daughter. The pool is small, yet perfectly sized for taking a swim at any point during the day. I would highly reccommend this property to families, as the house is spacious enough for children to have their own space, yet offers unique gathering points such as the rooftop patio. The onsite washer and dryer and full kitchen are also a plus when traveling with children. Couples traveling or groups of friends on vacation will also enjoy the open floorplan at this location and other unique amenities like the onsite wireless access, back patio grill or even the large rooftop tub! Casa Blanca has so much to offer at such a reasonable rental rate. We did have a rental car in Tulum, but you can easily use the onsite bicycles or rent a local scooter to ride around the town and explore. We found Tulum to be a wonderful little town with quaint shops and restaurants. People were extremely friendly and we did not find it difficult to communicate, even with our limited Spanish. We will defintiely venture back to Tulum and Casa Blanca!

My friends and I visited Tulum for the first time recently, and chose to stay at Casa Blanca for it's affordability and location. We were frankly amazed by the spacious loveliness of the house, and it's many amenities, in light of the extremely reasonable rental rate. The beds even had down comforters on them, which ended up being a real treat, as Tulum was experiencing a rare 'cold snap,' and the evenings were chilly. The house is very private, with a gated fence around it, and the pool, though small, was clean and deep, and there were a few days where we never even left the property! When we did venture out, it was walking distance to town, or a bicycle ride to the beach- and there were two well-maintained bikes for us to use! One of the people in our party needed to stay in touch with her work, and the wireless internet was strong and reliable. We would highly recommend this property!

About: Our family discovered Tulum in 2010, when, having heard a quiet buzz about the place for several years, and seen an article here and there in National Geographic, we finally made the trek, speeding quickly past the Cancun city limits on our way to our hoped-for paradise. As soon as we drove into Tulum, in our rental car, even before we found the beautiful beach, we were in love. Tulum is small and still largely 'undiscovered,' but nonetheless (or maybe because of this) alive with culture and fresh possibility. It has a safe, friendly, but still edge-of-the-world paradise feel to it. As much as we love traveling to new places, we knew Tulum was a place we wanted to return to many times, and, as luck (opportunity met with preparedness!) would have it, circumstances fell into place around our desire. Our family- Erika, Kris, Tristan (15) and Chloe (10) now resides in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Virginia for most of the year, and escapes to Tulum when we need a refresher, or at times a reminder, of the breadth and depth of the ocean, and of history, culture, and the broad horizons of our world... or just some family time in the sun and surf!
At home, in the mountains of Virginia, we live in Yurts- a ancient design of round, canvas 'tents,' of a sort, dating back to the Mongolian tribes, who would pack them on their yaks when they moved to stake out a new place in the desert. We love the worn wildness of the Appalachian mountains, and the simplicity of yurt living. For us, Casa Blanca, with it's polished concrete, un-curtained windows, and four floors of stark, artistic simplicity, represented an opposite form of the same things we liked- uniqueness, simple lines (or, in the case of our yurts, curves), and the clean, natural salt-washed beauty of the ocean and it's surroundings. Tulum itself reminds us of the small community of Floyd, Virginia, that we call home in the States- a mix of friendly locals and engaged visitors, drawn to a place for the quality of life it represents. At home, this 'quality of life' takes the shape of a community of organic farmers, music and art as integral aspects of daily life, and an effort to live intentionally. In Tulum, these qualities also exist, in a similar-but-different way; we love the 'international' feel of the Tulum community- the visitors that come from the States, Europe, other parts of Mexico and South America, Australia and many other parts of the globe. We love the emphasis on healthy living, but also the friendly groundedness of the pervasive laid back vibe.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we brought our kids from Virginia, in the United States, to Tulum to show them the house, and get their blessing on the place, Chloe, 10 years old, ran straight upstairs in her polka dot dress and jumped from the second story balcony into the pool! Although she is something of a daredevil, it didn't make us nervous, as we'd done it repeatedly ourselves! The former house owner had built the balcony, and indeed planned the depth of the pool, with this sort of fun frivolity in mind. It's that 'lightness-of-being' that drew us to this particular property, with its view of palm leaves shimmering in the slight breeze from the stairway window, and the prehistoric, peeling, banana-loving iguana that invariably saunters across the concrete wall every morning, as we sip coffee by the pool, entertaining us as he makes short shift of the fruit that is nearly as big as he. Casa Blanca is pure tranquility. It's simple modernity, with the lovely twist of being located off a dirt road. It's quiet and private, while completely accessible to some of the best restaurants you can imagine. It's beach life, amidst a uniquely cultured community.
