About the Property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Sleeps up to 6 Adults and 4 Children

This stunning semi-secluded villa in quiet Tankah Beach near Soliman Bay. It has a dramatic and unique open air floor plan, with a center palapa roof, and a stunning rock wall in the living area that drops right into the stunning outdoor pool! There are three adjoining private lockable air conditioned bedroom suites, all similar. The 3 suites are spacious and simple, yet offer ocean/beach views, seating areas, a/c, ceiling fans, en suite bathrooms and closets, and, a safe.

The value rate: This house is in need of some surface maintenance, so is certainly not for everyone - there is peeling paint, chipped tiles, rusty metal, weathered palapas, stained concrete, and missing pool tiles etc. If you are open to turn a blind eye, you will find you can rent this private beach villa with a pool and staff, for the price of a condo! It is an incredible value for those who are not particular. This villa is all about location, location, location..... The photos are all recent, taken in 2017.

The open Caribbean facing, fully equipped kitchen has a microwave and all the other appliances a guest will need. The architecture and views from this home are awe inspiring. This villa comes with 2 kayaks.

Casa De Ensueno Tankah Beach: Casa de Ensueno guests can feel connected to the world outside while enjoying the creature comforts of a resort like vacation rental beach villa. This is classic Riviera Maya! A coral sand beach, cool ocean breezes, and the turquoise ocean against a blue sky as far as you can see. Coral rubble on the edges of the beach keep the traffic low in front of the house. The bay in front of the house is coral filled and fabulous for snorkeling.

The main level of Casa Ensueno includes the open air circular living area with large built in sofa and raised kitchen and dining areas, and the pool starts in the living room! The cushions are vinyl since it is an open air setting. Each of Casa Ensuenos’ spacious air conditioned bedrooms are enclosed areas, constructed of conventional block and concrete, and have their own bathrooms and terrace. The bedroom suites are designed for privacy and security. Think of this house as an open air lobby with 3 private hotel room suites attached. Families with small children need to know the pool is open, and the bedrooms are not attached to each other, but ironically, most of our guests are families with small children.

Living and Bedrooms: Also on the main level, with access from the central living area is a large master suite. This main level bedroom suite is large and equipped with everything you might need including a open tiled bath, walk in closet and private patio area facing the pool. There are two single futon chairs which can easily be moved to other rooms as well, or are great for kids to sleep on.

On the second level are two identical large bedroom suites. All bedrooms are air conditioned and have private bath. Each of the three bedrooms have been designed to create privacy from the open air living spaces. The bedrooms are simply furnished with king beds, one single futon and have beautiful views of the Caribbean and Tankah Bay.

Tankah Bay has a security gate, and the staff live on site here, so they are there for the guest's needs. They can be hired to cook a meal - always a client favorite experience. There are a couple restaurants on Tankah Bay, a small market for sundries, and a cenote a few lots away.

Caribbean Fantasy

Year Purchased: 1989

About: The owner's family built this house out of their family's passion to Mexico.

Why Tulsayab, Q.R., Mexico:
As one of the first owners to choose a lot on this bay, they have one of the best locations for the beach, bay, airflow and views! Due to the needed maintenance, if you can overlook it, you will get the best value on any villa in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The open air concept of the living area is dramatic, especially with the 2 story palapa roof - all designed by a local architect. There is nothing like it!
