Come see why Casa Caribeña has the most 5 Star Reviews! COOK INCLUDED IS ONE REASON. Just remodeled with contemporary & Mexican styles & finishing. This magnificent villa of almost 6,000 square feet of interior space with an additional 3,500 square feet of terraces, patios, rooftop and outdoor living space was featured in the book, 'Travel Stories of the Mayan Riviera', and again featured in the travel magazine, 'Budget Travel'.

When using only 4 or 5 Bedrooms, you pick the ones you want to use after you arrive. The bedrooms you don't use are then locked for no one else to use. You have the entire villa to yourselves! When renting the first floor 3 bedroom villa it is just that floor of 2,600 square feet, 3 1/2 baths, huge living room, dining room, kitchen, huge beachfront patio, pool, gardens and much more.

Casa Caribena was just remodeled with granite in both kitchens, marble bathroom counter tops with vessel sinks, re-tiled showers with glass panels, ALL mahogany woodwork throughout the entire villa and re-tiled floors with 20 inch tiles! All giving it a very New & Contemporary look with a Mexican flare!!! It’s a NEW VILLA!!!

Casa Caribeña is a beautiful 6 bedroom villa with 5 Master Suites and 1 bedroom with its bath across the hall. All bedrooms are in the villa with none are in the maid’s quarter’s house (casita). The villa is on a sandy white beach, with a wonderful pool and fantastic palapa (thatched roof) patio for incredible outdoor living! It also has its Rooftop Plunge Pool & Roof Top Living Room, Bar & Bath, where you can see the entire bay. This is the place to be!

The huge kitchen has all that you need to cook whatever you like but we have something even better for you!!! We INCLUDE the cook, AT NO ADDITIONAL COST, so that all the cooks in your group get a vacation also. You just purchase the groceries. We also can give you a quote including the groceries. Just ask! I'm sure you've already read all of the 5 Star reviews about Lily, her delicious meals and how wonderful this villa is for your group.

The dining room seats fourteen people very comfortably or you may also enjoy your meals “Alfresco” on the patio/palapa directly in front of the turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean, with seating for 14 people so everyone always eats together.

The living room with the new contemporary “U” shape sofa, can seat everyone and is very comfortable!!! It is connected to the dining room by beautiful arches and has U.S./Canadian Satellite with 42 inch TV. A powder room along with the wet bar is connected to the living room and invites you to create your favorite tropical specialties.

The pool also has a lounging area in the water so you can stay cool while soaking up the rays. The palapa patio is furnished with a large table and chairs, lounge chairs, and hammocks.

Upstairs on the roof, you have your personal dipping pool that seats 14 people from where you’ll gaze at the beautiful colors of the Caribbean, or the spectacular stars at night. The neighbors will be very envious of you since you are in the only rooftop dipping pool in the entire bay.

For those that would rather not get wet, there is a huge, shaded, very comfortable living room along with large relaxing chairs and lounge chairs. The higher you go, the better the views. Look all the down the beach to the ruins of Tulum and beyond or north to the point. The views will astound you. This is the spot to be while sipping your Margarita or Pina Colada, having a massage or just enjoying.

Casa Caribena is immaculately clean and furbished so that you feel the love that has been put into it. From the hand carved wooden sculptures, to the other decorations, you will see why this home is cherished.

Each bedroom is air-conditioned and has its' own private bath. There is also a half bath by the bar for your convenience and another half bath is on the roof. The first Master-Suite is beachfront, huge and has a king-size and queen-size bed. The second Master-Suite is also on the beach side with a king-size bed, private bath, vanity and is very spacious. The third Master-Suite has a view of the lovely gardens and pool and has a queen-size bed and private bath. The fourth Master-Suite is upstairs and on the ocean with its king size bed, personal terrace and private bath. The fifth Master-Suite is also upstairs, ocean side; with a king size bed, personal terrace, & private bath. The sixth bedroom is upstairs overlooking the pool & jungle with a king size bed, walk-in closet and its bathroom is across the hall.

Casa Caribeña invites you to have the best vacation of your life. The second living room upstairs is very comfy with 3 sofas around a TV with American/Canadian satellite programming. Adjacent to this room is a game room with floor to ceiling windows that gives you the view of the entire bay. You feel like you are outside while sitting in this room. There is also a full bar up here with a full size frig and stove and utensils.

Lounging is a priority while at Casa Caribena so there are lounge chairs on the beach along with hammocks to sway in. Besides the 13 x 26 foot pool having its own lounge area inside, there are also lounge chairs, and a hammock area with a soft sandy floor for your relaxing. Whether you are swinging in one of the hammocks on the beach side or the jungle side, or gazing at the entire bay of Tankah from your rooftop perch, you know that you are in paradise.

Pampering is also a priority here. You have fantastic masseuses that come to the villa and give the most wonderful relaxing massages, manicures, pedicures, and facials while lounging around the pool, under the palapa patio, up on the roof or wherever you prefer. All of these services come to you while at Casa Caribena at very reasonable additional costs. You don't have to go anywhere.

Casa Caribena has a wireless Internet connection. The sea kayaks are great fun to play with and the snorkeling is spectacular, directly in front on the villa. Bone fishing trips can be made to go to Boca Paila, one of the foremost bone fishing areas in the world only 45 minutes from Casa Caribena. Deep Sea fishing can also be arranged and is only minutes away.

There is a great dive shop just 50 yards from the villa and 2 restaurants/bars within a 5 minute walking distance, along with a mini-market. You are located within minutes of Mayan Ruins, Cenotes, Dry Caves, Playa del Carmen, Xcaret, Xel-Ha, and Chichen Itz, plus lots, lots more! You are in the MIDDLE of the Riviera Maya.

A few steps down the beach is the famous Cenote Manati. This is a fresh water pool, of emerald green, crystal clear water. You have the beautiful Caribbean in front of you with the cool fresh water cenote in back of you. What a place to be... Our staff is very complete and they aim to help you enjoy the most exquisite vacation that you ever experienced. Casa Caribena has it all.

What makes this villa unique

Our guests continue to tell us that the snorkeling in front of the villa is the BEST they have ever seen! Sea kayaking is so nice in the bay, with a spectacular view. No worries of undertow or seaweed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As avid divers, we travel considerably, and always stay in a villa by the water. We insist on this, as we also have snorkelers and small children who need to enjoy the beach. Very frankly, we were blown away. We had 13, including 3 small children, but all 10 adults could not have been more pleased.

Lisa prepared us so well, that no stone was left unturned during our trip. Lily and her team were the consummate hosts and cooks, even happily acquiescing to 3 late to very late night dinners due to a late arrival and two night dives that would have turned many cooks into frothing malcontents.

Lisa also gave us a nugget about the turtle sanctuary nearby, and at the appointed time, we visited the part of the beach where these behemoths lay their eggs in the dark of night. We went not once,,,not twice, but three separate times. If you stay at Casa Caribena, you HAVE to experience this.

I personally fell asleep in the hammock several times as it swayed with the afternoon Caribbean breezes, but usually, it wasn't open for me. (Next time, I might just rent the place by myself)

We rented all 6 bedrooms, so had full usage of all 3 floors, and the most enjoyable was the top deck, where we enjoyed the dipping pool after our dives each day. After cooling off, we would sit in the lounge chairs...some of us in the shade, and some worshiping the sun, but all of us basking in the welcomed breezes that picked up about that time of day. It is on this floor that I could see myself in retirement, finally getting to that book I have promised myself I would write.

Our stay at this villa was spectacular!!! The enormous space was wonderful so people could be all together or you could go off and read a book or hang out in a hammock for a siesta. The food was delicious and we ate many of our meals at the villa. We loved the snorkeling right in front and the kayaks were lots of fun.

We will stay there again!

Best Beach Villa in Tulum

  • 5 of 5

An absolute dream vacation!

We enjoyed an amazing two week stay and are so grateful for such a wonderful experience. The beach house is so thoughtfully equipped and the staff so professional and attentive that we immediately felt at home. It was a delight to be able to relax so quickly.

The views are stunning and the quiet bay became our daily playground to snorkel, kayak, and swim. The kids (2,4,11,12,16 &17) had so much fun and we felt very safe and secure.

We especially appreciated how responsive the owners were to questions we had that came up on short notice during our stay.

The villa was maintained to the highest standard. We really appreciated the beach being raked clear of seaweed every morning and how we never encountered a single grain of sand inside despite how active the whole group was on the beach.

We told all our friends and family about this fantastic vacation and will absolutely be returning in the future to make more memories.

Thank you Lisa and Andre for providing such a beautiful and well-designed home for our whole family to comfortably enjoy. (6 adults, 6 children - Ages 2 through 78)

Wow !!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic Villa!!!! Spectacular location!!!! Wonderful staff!!! Delicious food!!!!! This is all that you want when vacationing!!! I always search for places that have the most reviews. I figure that anyone can have a 5 star rating with only a few reviews but to have a 5 Star Rating with lots of reviews, then you know for sure the place is what they say it is. Casa Caribena has the most reviews in Tulum with T.A. and now I understand why they maintain a 5 STAR RATING!! The villa is spotless with the ladies cleaning every day but quickly and very effectively. They first make breakfast and then while we were eating, they cleaned everything and we never felt like there were there. This is a real plus. We’ve stayed other places where you would always have the staff around. This villa, you feel like you have rented a private villa. The modern décor and very comfortable furniture and beds were wonderful. We had 14 people and ate both outside “alfresco” in front of the Caribbean and also at the dining table; both sat all 14 people comfortably. They just remodeled some bathrooms and some of the bedrooms and they all looked fantastic! We snorkeled directly in front of the villa and saw lots of tropical fish, rays, beautiful coral and sea fans. We kayaked all around the bay and it was so relaxing because there weren’t waves. We could see straight down to the sandy bottom. We also snorkeled at the cenote that was less than a 5 minute walk from the villa. WOW, what a different place that was with crystal clear fresh water (brackish actually) and more of a blue-green color. Had to pay a few dollars but well worth it!!! We went to Coba ruins (30 mins.) other cenotes that I forgot the names of but they are listed in the “Guest book” on the coffee table. We went to Playa del Carmen (30 mins), Xel-Ha (5 mins) and exploring around. There were so many things to do in the immediate area but we wanted to hand around the villa a lot. We were on the beach in the morning, pool mid-day and roof pool in the evenings and nights. The roof pool, and roof living room were my favorite places to hang out! It really was paradise there. I almost forgot to mention the food. ALL of the meals were delicious!!! Lovely presentation and more than we could have eaten. Great leftovers for lunch!!! We’ve stayed at many villas and condos throughout the years and this is by far our favorite. Because we still have so many things to do around there, we’ll go back again next year for sure!

Dream House for a Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, huge house and relaxing vacation. Our stay here was so relaxing and also so wonderful with the delicious meals. Some of us hung around the house almost the entire week and others went exploring, snorkeling, kayaking and to the ruins. We walked the beach, swam in the warm water and had a lot of room for all of us. There were 12 in our group.

We wanted to take Lily and the other staff home with us. They are just one of the reasons why we loved this house. It is decorated lovely and has everything that you will need including the beach towels. I’m sure we will return to this house again.

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Caribeña

I'm pretty sure we experienced a small slice of heaven while we stayed here for a week. There was so much beauty surrounding us in every form possible:

Nature at its finest-the ocean with its many colors of blue, the fish and coral and manta rays. We snorkeled right out the back door. The shallow bay kept the waters calm so even beginners could learn. The ceynotes up the road and the one we discovered 200 yards down the beach emptying into the ocean. The moon was full while we stayed....

We even had a torrential rainstorm one evening that was amazingly gorgeous. The birds-pelicans and gulls and osprey....

People-Lily and all of her staff were amazing! We had fun in Tulum shopping for souvenirs and groceries. Lisa and Andre were wonderful - they answered all of our millions of questions prior to arrival and were very knowledgeable and helpful.

Food-Lily's delicious meals and guacamole were wonderful!

Blue Sky restaurant a lazy 5 minute stroll away was fun place to hang when you were craving a pizza.

The Casa- pictures just don't do it justice. It is a huge beautiful home that housed 11 of us perfectly.

It had a very interesting decor that was local, artistic and yet "homey".

The third floor and the back porch were our big hangout spots - we spent hours and hours just looking at the beauty surrounding us.

The pool which was located in the most heavenly landscaped gardens was a great place to cool off. The palms and flowering shrubs were a sight for your eyes...

I wish I could put pictures in this review.... They speak for themselves.

We all had the most amazing time... Thank you so much for everything!

Goodbye Casa Caribeña....

'Til next time....
