About the Property
2 Bedroom, 2 Full Bathrooms (1 Ensuite), Queen Futon, 2 single beds: Sleeps 4-7
Enjoying the Rivera Maya & Yucatan:
Working as a guide locally, I have in-depth knowledge of how to enjoy your time on the Yucatan Peninsula and other parts of Mexico. I have shared that knowledge in detailed guides, available to rental customers. I can personally help you tailor your trip to what you want to see from the touristy to real Mexican pueblos and food. I have camped and 5* Hotel-ed it.
I have escorted tour groups to:
Calakmul (tallest pyramid to climb), via Laguna Bacalar, Chetumal and the Duty Free Shopping Zone in Belize;
Ruta de Puuc and Routa de Conventos - from Merida to Carillo Puerto - the best Mayan and Colonial sites: Uxmal, Loltun Caves, Mayapan etc
Rio Lagartos via Ek Balam including cenotes to rappel into for lunch, a 3.5km long dry cave complex (ancient underground river channel); flamingo & birding tour; Mayan Clay Bath; and lobster dinner in picturesque San Felipe.
Local cenotes, Ruins of Tulum, Coba & Chichen Itza, including Valladolid with its art houses, museums, superb local market and even hammock shopping where the best ones are made: at the Yucatan Prison factory!
1 week+ treks to Palenque & Chiapas -San Cristobal, and more!
Family and baby friendly including playpen cot, highchair, baby bath, child seat for the bicycle, booster seats available from car rental companies, We also have inflatable beach/pool toys and the fun of the small pool - the jacuzzi insert off the main pool, with or without jets and bubbles!
No need to bring everything with you: beach towels provided plus we have available masks, snorkels, fins, floaties for every age/size.
The available bikes range from a 20 inch wheel child's bike to 27 inch 12 speed road bikes. We rent them at a fraction of the cost of single speed bikes offered in town.
When you're ready to book, here are some things to keep in mind

Additional information about rental rates
- Refundable Damage Deposit $200
We have a very well equipped, beautifully maintained property with a live-in maintenance/gate man and secure off-street parking. These are not normally available for holiday rentals in Tulum and never for a small enclave of only 6 houses. You get to enjoy a quiet under used pool and gardens at a fair price, so feel free to ask about special rates, but know that it is too nice to "give it away".
The prices quoted are for 4 persons in 2 queen bed bedrooms. Additional double bed, queen futon, single bed and baby cot are available at an additional charge: $10/night/bed.
The condo association asks us to collect and 10/person/night for all adults exceeding normal occupancy of 4 persons. Infants and young children are not charged.
We offer very competitive nightly and weekly rates.
These are based on "sensible" air-conditioning use overnight in the bedrooms and in hot months (May-October) over dinner hour and evening usage in the living area.
Electricity for 24/7 air-conditioning at low temperatures (<5 degrees C below ambient) will accrue additional electricity charges.
However, be assured that we include more than enough for you can be comfortable without any surcharge. It is rarely applied, and usually a few dollars only.
This policy exists because, unfortunately we have had guests run (and freeze) all the A/C units set at 17' C (62' F), with patio door and windows open, totalling $30-45/day in electricity alone!
Thanks for your understanding, we only want to be fair.

The house is located at the South end of downtown Tulum. We are trying to get the address to appear properly on the Google Map listing, but you can simply key-in Map Coord: 20.204323, -87.474337 with Google or Google Earth, and zoom in and see our enclave & pool the Satellite Photo view: 300 M south of the divided boulevard or main street of Tulum town; then 300 M to the East.
It is an easy walk to the restaurants, internet cafes, bus station and tourist shops in the town. The three main grocery supermarkets (Chedaraui, San Francisco de Assis y Bodega Auerra are near the main stoplights corner (Beach one way, Coba the other). Several "Mini-Supers", convenience stores are 200M awa and a very good fruit stand is also near us - just 600 M walk on the way into town. Personally, I walk or bike virtually all my trips and the beach. But with family and a cooler full of refreshments, I take the car to Playa Maya or the free parking near the Mezzanaine entrance to the public beach. There are 4 beach clubs in that 2.5 km stretch of beach to the ruins, and another 10+ ones on the beach road to the south, past all the boutique hotels on the beach and up to entrance to the National Park Biosphere: Sian Ka'an.
Other Activities: Cenote Cave Diving, Snorkeling and Exploring, Cycling on the flat! One of world's best Kite-Boarding beaches. When there isn't enough wind for that, paddleboarding inside the reef or on the lagunas inland (those without crocs!)
Golf: There are signature golf course from near the Cancun airport -Faldo course all the way south, past MayaKoba PGA stop each November to one just 18km from Tulum - the Trent Jones course at the Gran Bahia Principe. Local property owners get special local booking rates - which can be arranged through Alan, your host.
I have 1 set of clubs available for rental to interested guests.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Born in N Ireland, raised in Canada, travelled in 45 countries and worked in 12 different countries, Alan brings a worldly view to his rental and tour business in Tulúm.
Why the Owner Chose Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
We looked at places 1 hour or so from airports in Cuba, Dominican Republic and both Puerto Vallarta and Acapulo in Mexico before selecting Tulúm as our holiday home site. The town is 10 years behind Playa Del Carmen and still has the charm of a real Mexican village with the added benefit of one of the 10 best Beaches in N America. We have great shopping and services, are closer to Chichen Itza and other great natural attractions than the big destinations here, but without the throngs of tourists, giant hotels, exclusive shops & casinos that destroy other versions of paradise for us.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Houses are built to Florida Category 5 Hurricane Standards. Water Softening and Pressure Water System on site -this sounds minor but if you have had to run around the shower to get wet in 2nd and 3rd world countries, this is very nice. We have tried to balance Western conveniences in an eco-sensitive jungle & beach environment. The short distance to town provides you with quiet enjoyment here but only a brief walk to the pubs and music of town.
