Wonderful stay at Casa Cavu

  • 5 of 5

So many great things to say about this property. We stayed for a week. 2 adults, 2 kids. We did not rent a car and it worked out great. We hired a car service to get us to and from the airport (through the property concierge) and it was perfect. We had a private chef come for our first day and that was awesome. A lot of leftovers. The other days Isidro prepared a meal otherwise we ate out. The house is perfect. Isidro does a nice job of maintaining the beach and Rocio cleaning the house.

The house was more than enough for our single family but we enjoyed the spaciousness and large pool. We brought Air mattresses with us from home which was great. Bring water shoes too. For the water kayaking and the cenotes.

Excursions: Dos Ojos cenote, the tulum ruins, Casa Cenote, akumal monkey sanctuary. All of it was awesome. Had taxis wait for us and do a round trip which made it easier. For food, we ate at tankah inn, Casa Cenote, the Italian place, chamicos, taco honorio, Celti - all were great

Kids had a great time. We felt very safe and taken care of. We will definitely be back!!

Great house on your own beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house knowing nothing more that it’s rough location and seeing the photos. It turned out to be amazing! You are about 5 mins north of Tulum Centro and 10-20 mins north of all the poshe beach resorts/scene, which we ventured both multiple times a day.

Being greeted with amazing manicured jungle foliage, Casa Cavu has Mexican charm with all the modern amenities one could want all with your own beach! The main level has two generous bedrooms and both with nice views of the beach/water and shared an eclectic bathroom on the main level. The master suite had even better water/beach views and a private terrace from which one could enjoy their morning coffee or drink at sunset!

The windowed kitchen was good size and had all the amenities one needs. The pool overlooks the beach/ocean and features a deep blue mosaic bottom and multiple seating areas. Adjacent to the pool, there was a small foot washing pool, which we found our two infants playing in multiple times throughout the week. We loved Isidro and Rocio, who took care of not only the daily turn down service/cleaning, but raked the beach, cooked meals and even did our laundry for a little extra, they made our trip perfect!

To top off the amazing sunrises, we experienced multiple amazing autumn moons rising from the horizon and on the last night sea turtle hatched right in front of the pool and we helped them on to the ocean to save them from the predators lurking around, it was amazing!

I would recommend Casa Cavu to anyone looking for a wonderful and relaxing beach vacation in paradise!

The house is wonderful. Icidro & Rosio took very good care of us. There is a dive shop down the beach you can rent snorkel equip. Close enough to Tulum for quick trips to the Chedraui.

Our own personal paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and very clean! The mattresses and pillow were a little stiff, but we slept good. The two bedrooms on the main level worked great for our three kids(could fit five). My husband and I had our own room, bathroom and balcony to ourselves, on the second floor, with amazing views! The deck is perfect for yoga.

The kitchen is fully stocked and very well organized. There is plenty of clean drinking water, in a large jug, on the kitchen counter. The house is very open and spacious.

The location is perfect!! It is a short drive on an old dirt road, off of the main highway. There are guards that block the road, to keep it very safe. There is a couple of restaurants just a few minutes of walking down the dirt road. Or you can drive 10 min into Tulum.

The caretakers are great! Every morning Isidro cleared the beach of seaweed. Rosio kept the house perfectly clean. They were very good about taking care of us, without being in our way. They made a great dinner for us one of the evenings we were there.

The backyard is what really makes this place so amazing! I laid in one of the lounge chairs, in the shade with a perfect ocean breeze and finished my book. The pool is a perfect temperature, private and clean. We spent a lot of time swimming! We were worried about the sun exposure, but it was never a problem. We were glad to have the sun out when we swam. My son was in heaven, running around the yard catching geckos, lizards and hermit crabs.

The snorkeling was the BEST!! Bring your snorkeling stuff, or walk 5 min down the beach and rent from the Scubashop. The entire bay is only about 4-6 ft deep. The waves are calm, the water is shallow and the water temperature is perfect. We paddled the kayaks out to the first buoy, and tied off, then snorkeled around the reef. We spent hours snorkeling!!

One day we snorkeled at Yal-Ku lagoon, and it was not nearly as good as our own "private bay"!

Just thinking about this place makes me want to be back there!

The last day we were there, baby turtles hatched right behind the house!! It was incredible! We helped put them in the ocean so the birds wouldn't eat them. (Ask Isidro if he knows of any turtle nests. )

Enjoy this place!!!
