Far from the maddening crowd, but close to everything: A cosy home, not condo or apartment, just S of the town, on a road of Boutique Hotels & private homes, is our enclave of just 6 houses, all with their own gardens & off-street secure parking, surrounding a large Lazy-L pool, with jacuzzi built -in. The 10m² 33 sq.ft. shared palapa is the ideal setting for outdoor eating, reading, chatting & games. The all concrete house boasts Mayan architectural touches, local hardwood furnishings, clean ceramic floors & deck, with bright airy windows and cathedral (3.8m) ceilings throughout. Full A/C & Pressure Water System. The kitchen blends technology & convenience - full sized fridge, gas stove, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker, new cookware & service for 8. Dine at the table or breakfast bar. We have on-site Maint/Security 24/7, eager to make your stay perfect, or just open the gate. Safer than any beachfront house. More of a Home than a vacation condo development.
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 customer. 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.

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; flamingo & birding tour; Mayan Clay Bath; and lobster dinner in picturesque San Felipe.
Local cenotes, Ruins of Tulum, Coba & Chichen Itza, including Valladolid, hammocks (Yucatan Prison factory)

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".

Balance 30-60 days in advance for High Season and Peak Season or by prior arrangement, upon arrival/check-in.

The house is located at the South end of the town, but the address does not appear properly on Google Map on the property listing. You can simply key-in Map Coord:20.204323, -87.474337 with Google Earth, and zoom in and see us on 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 cafe, bus station and tourist shops in the town. The three main grocery supermarkets (Chedaraui, San Francisco de Assis y Bodega Auerra (small stores owned by Walmart)) are near the main stoplights corner, but the small version of San Francisco store, is 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 fulll of refreshments, I take the car to Playa Maya or Mezzanaine free parking.
Other Activities: Cenote Cave Diving, Snorkeling and Exploring, Cycling on the flat! One of world's best Kite-Boarding beaches.
Golf: There are signature golf course from near the Cancun airport -Faldo course all the way south, past Maya Coba PGA stop each February to 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, Q.R., 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 built to Florida Cat5 Hurricane Standards. Water Softening and Pressure Water System on site -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.
