Private and Luxurious Waterfront Villa

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Heaven on earth!!!

Casa Chic is a luxurious 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom private beach villa located within Rancho San Eric right on one of the most private spectacular Caribbean white sand beaches in the world. This villa sleeps 10 people (5 couples) comfortably and is ideal for families, friends or just an intimate romantic getaway. Perfect for entertaining. Casa Chic is situated in the cool palms right next to the Sian Ka'an Biosphere which is a protected 1.3 million acre reserve where wildlife are free to live in their natural habitat.

This villa was built palapa style in keeping with the Mayan theme. Casa Chic has a beach-like jungle feel and it has a divine ambiance day or night. Continental breakfast is included. A private chef is included in the price (groceries not included and limited to a maximum of 10 people). Any more than that will be an additional charge and parties or gatherings of any kind over 15 people are not allowed at casa chic and no loud music after 11pm.

There is an upscale first class restaurant, Hechizo, right within the grounds of Rancho San Eric practically right next door. For a more casual dining experience stroll along the beach to one of the candle lit beach bars or experience the divine ambience and fabulous cuisine of many tulum style restaurants along the beach road.

There are lots of restaurants where you can still have your feet in the sand in tulum. This is a very peaceful secluded beach at night however if you want action just go down the beach and take in some live salsa or hip ambiance and live dj action. Tulum is an eco chic environment with many yoga and wellness facilities and upscale spa treatments. The town of Tulum is only a 10 minute drive away. Tulum has a vast variety of different cuisines and night life but is still a very authentic Mexican town. There are several 1st class golf courses nearby and plenty of excursions for family outings. Go fly fishing in the lagoon, birdwatching or go for a boat ride and just take in the wonder of it all. Take a drive to Punta Allen, a sleepy little Mexican fishing village at the end of the reserve and take in a fresh lobster meal. The Tulum ruins are close by and chichenitza and coba ruins are within driving distance as well.

The fresh water cenotes are a must see! Once a year the giant turtles lay their eggs right on the beach in front of Casa Chic. Having traveled the globe extensively we have never in our lives come across a beach so breathtaking. This truly is a magical place!

Payments are non-refundable; provided, however, that the amount, if any, for which the Villa is re-rented during the reserved period may be applied to the rental thereof of another date. We suggest you consider trip insurance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lisa, Hui, and Stephan,

Thank you. Our week in Casa Chic was simply exquisite. The property is gorgeous, the playa is perfect, and the entire area has a spiritual gift of renewal.

Our stay surpassed every expectation we had. (and they were high!)

Hui and Stephan (property managers) were particularly exceptional in welcoming us and ensuring our stay was perfect. There was not a single detail they overlooked.

It’s good to know that there are such caring, nurturing people to welcome you to paradise.

Thank you again. If you ever need a recommendation, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We can’t wait to return again.

Think about THE PERFECT PLACE, then double it. That's what Casa Chic delivers. 10 of us celebrated my 40th bday here and it was the ideal place to do so. The house is breath taking. open. tons of space. beautifully decorated with all the amenities you'd need. from our deck we could see the turtles come in at night to lay their eggs (August)! the beach front is pristine and the 4 daybeds make it impossible to want to leave. Chef Jose was with us preparing the yummiest of foods. each meal was better than the next culminating in a surf n' turf extravaganza. the house staff was thorough and diligent. very professional and friendly as they cleaned the house. The house managers, Hui and Stefan, were a delight helping us pre stock the house and gentle check ins to ensure our stay was going well.

quite simply. we had the best time at the best house with the best food on the best beach. I couldn't recommend Casa Chic more.

Refreshing, Relaxing, Rejuvinated!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully designed Private Residence offers more than home style casual living. It is luxury at its finest, located within a natural setting, has amazing views of the ocean, right off the large outdoor patio deck, the fresh ocean breeze and cabanas are plenty, along with sandy white beaches, gentle aqua blue waters, and privacy everywhere; where you are free to roam at your own pace, to soak in all the beauty.

Casa Chic, has a large casual living room, dining room, full kitchen/bar set up, outdoor grilling. Large bedrooms and bathrooms with beautiful picture windows and screens that slides open to have fresh ocean breeze flow through entire home. The 'Hemingway' style with beautiful bed linens, netting, decor makes you feel you're truly in paradise. There's a wonderful and friendly staff on site to assist with any needs you may have. The meals prepared by in home chef are outstanding, fresh, and more than you could ask for at any 5-star restaurant. WiFi is offered throughout the home, full refrigerators, freezer, microwave, coffee/espresso machines, are at your fingertips. If you forget something, there's a convenient shopping store (Chedraui) to go to for groceries, beverages, cash, pharmacy, and everyday needs.

There's plenty to do to whether soaking in rays, swimming, jogging, yoga, water sports, fishing, or just walking on the white powder beaches, to nearby quaint or upscale restaurants, shopping, and boutique hotels. Be sure to check out the wonderful restaurants they recommend, they're all fabulous!! One thing to keep in mind is, be sure your currency is in pesos. The smaller unique lifestyle in town may only take cash in pesos, and few credit cards.

Overall, I couldn't get enough of this beautiful home, its location and beautiful natural surroundings, the wonderful staff, and exposed to diverse people, culture, cuisine, restaurants, unique shopping, beaches, weather, is all right there to explore and come back to, over and over. You won't want to go home!!

Perfect Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely FANTASTIC beach house located on the most beautiful stretch of beach in Mexico. Very private and laid back yet a short beach stroll to numerous restaurants and bars. We flagged down a local fisherman in his boat one morning in front of the house and bought REALLY fresh fish! The rooms and decor of of the house are beautiful and comfortable. The expansive outdoor areas seem to double the size of this house. Just open the sling doors on both sides and the let the cool ocean breeze blow through the house. No TV's here, but if you need them you probably looking in the wrong town. There is clear and relatively fast wifi in the house so you can still get your news and sports updates as needed. I would definitely recommend this property and it was exactly as advertised. Great service and wonderful housekeeper providing daily cleaning and breakfast setup etc. great restaurants in Tulum as well...ask the owner for details.

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Chic is everything it advertises and more! The location is amazing - super private. It is the best beachfront property I've ever stayed at. It's just far enough away from everything to feel as though you own the beach. The palapa has a great patio that spans outward, so you can overlook the beach and ocean. What more could you ask for? The palapa itself is gorgeous, with everything you need. Rooms are large and beautiful, each having their own charm. With the many, huge sliding glass doors on both sides, the constant breeze throughout the villa is amazing and welcomed after a full day of playing in the hot sun and surf.

The many great restaurants in the area rival some of the best spots I've ever eaten at. Tulum's boutique shops are great as well.

Correspondence with owners was painless, prompt, and very friendly. I would recommend Tulum and of course, Casa Chic to everyone I know if I wasn't so selfish and secretly wanted to keep it to myself.

Already booked for next year!!!

This place cannot be beat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed here for 1 week, and I have to say it, it was the best vacation we've ever had. Not only is Tulum a stunning, yet charmingly quaint little Mexican town, but Casa Chic has to be the best kept secret within it! It is a gorgeous villa, with such unique style and taste. It feels incredibly luxurious, yet also cozy and comforting too. We spent most of our time out on the front deck, eating, reading etc. and down on the beach. The beach beds are a fabulous addition to the home. The beach itself is absolutely pristine. The water was so nice - we didn't need or miss a pool at all. The rooms are gorgeous, open air and exotic. The beds are large and very comfortable. Everyone was happy with their room. We were all sad to leave! Casa Chic is a MUST for anyone wanting to visit Tulum.
