The recently opened Frangipani is a small, Bed and Breakfast, located in a genuine jungle setting, 10 mins drive from the centre of Tulum and only 20mins from its stunning beaches. It is extremely private and is safely secured by an entrance gate.
It is difficult to convey exactly the beauty of life here amongst the most incredible nature and star-scapes. But if you are looking for something out of the ordinary and an escape from life's more exhausting pace, then Frangipani will serve you very well. A recent guest described it as a 'unique experience'. Nothing is rushed and everything here is peaceful.
As well as being worth a visit in its own right, Frangipani is perfectly located in that it allows you to base yourself here, from where you can explore the wider area.
2m up the road is the Mayan village of Mecario Gomez where you can enjoy lovely authentic food. Another 9m further on, and you can visit the fabulous ruins of Coba and its surrounding cenotes which are just as beautiful but less busy than ones nearer Tulum. 1hr north of Frangipani is the friendly, colonial town of Valladolid which makes for a rewarding day out. Its fascinating museum of privately collected Mexican folkart (the biggest in the country) is worth the visit alone.
Tulum affords access to well stocked supermarkets and an abundance of coffee shops and eating establishments.
The famous ruins looking out over the ocean are to be found about a mile from the town.
A few more minutes from the town will find you on one of the world's top 10 best beaches (according to Rough Guide 2013). Low level development ensures the beach is not overcrowded or ugly. The colour of the water and its temperature are both exquisite and even more eating and drinking options abound.
This fabulous house has been recently completed and is entirely self-sufficient. All water used (apart from drinking) is harvested from rainwater. Electricity is generated by solar power.
Your rooms are attached to the lower floor of the house, and afford an excellent degree of privacy.
Olive has 2 double posturpedic beds , 2 chairs and a ceiling fan. It has beautiful views out of both sides of the room.
Fig has one double posturpedic bed, a sofa and chair. This is a spacious room, with ceiling fan, and has fabulous views on 3 sides.
Both rooms have their own en-suite shower rooms and WiFi. There is hot water whenever you need it.
The verandah to the guest rooms is a calm place to relax, otherwise you can do so in various shaded places on the spacious gravel garden outside your rooms. The roof terrace, accessed via the breakfast room, is a great place to star gaze or lie in a hammock.
Jungle paths allow for interesting walks and lead to a hammock palapa up the track, which is particularly stunning at sun set.
Rates are based on 2 guests; add £15 per night, per additional guest

Refundable Damage Deposit£50
Please check with me first regarding the rates if you are booking for 4 or more people as the automated calculator on this site cannot cope with the fact that 4 or more people may occupy BOTH rooms instead of everyone being in Olive.
