About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Tres Palmeras is a fabulous oceanfront villa on the Caribbean, just north of Tulum. The stretch of coral beach is part of a protected turtle nesting ground and from May to September you can see large sea turtles coming ashore to nest.

Built in 2003, the 2-story villa has 2 identical masters each with a king sized bed and 2 guest rooms each with 2 queen sized beds. There are also 2 full sized blow-up mattresses, so all can be very comfortable. Each bedroom has a private bathroom, a balcony and its own AC zone with independent thermostats.

The villa has covered verandas, a large roof-top patio and an inviting swimming pool - all overlooking the ocean. The décor is calm, inviting and colorful.

The caretakers live in the casita above the garage and will be there to clean daily and help with meals. The house is equipped with washer and dryer units, linens (including beach towels), TVs and DVD players, just about everything you need for the kitchen and much more.

Cell phones work and there is wireless internet connection, so bring your laptops.

Tres Palmeras

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and well cared for home with kind and efficient caretakers. Right on beautiful beach so you can go to sleep with waves crashing. Very relaxing and low key with easy access to snorkeling, ruins, dining, fishing, shopping and more. We enjoyed just laying out on the back deck by the pool. We took our three teenagers and they enjoyed it too. We'd go back!

Many memories

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautiful and well kept. We especially liked the pool facing the ocean it's a dream. Restaurant, Cenote, and fishing were on our road. Lots of shopping as well. The beds were not comfortable and inconsistent hot water. Be sure to visit Xcaret.

Great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, clean home with a fabulous view, although the ocean is too rough and rocky for swimming off the beach. The walk to Tankah Bay, for calm water, is long for little legs. The beach has lots of trash (in undeveloped areas) and seaweed. Will does a nice job keeping the house beach raked and pretty. There's a gorgeous cenote about a hundred yards down the road, which we didn't use, but it looks breathtaking. Also down the road is a great restaurant, Blue Sky. Good shrimp tacos and tasty mojitos - even a brick oven for pizza. However, Will and Gloria cooked our favorite meals. What a treat! They are a gracious, lovely couple who had margaritas and guacamole waiting the minute we walked in. We felt very pampered. I made my bed the first morning and Gloria re-made it. Plenty of beach and regular towels/wash cloths, too. The house provides bottled water.

The house, particularly the pool, is a little worn (kids didn't care) but comfortable beds and well appointed. My only slight criticism, and because I'm a gardener, is that the front of the house, pots and ground, look a little sad.

Tulum was hot and crazy crowded. Go early or late and hire a guide. Coba worth the drive if only so the kids can climb around and bike thru the jungle. Xel-Ha is well done, big fun and I highly recommend. Swim with the dolphins, skip the manatees. It's not worth the cost.

The Cancun airport was a mad house (possibly because we were there Spring break.) We spent an arrival hour dealing with car rental. It's an hour and a half drive from the airport to the house.

It was a great week and we will definitely consider a return visit. Hasta la vista Tulum.

Our stay for 8 days with 10 people was relaxing and truly a piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had an eight day stay with 10 people. Overall first impression was one of elegance and a perfect spot for relaxation. We walked in and were met with fresh guacamole and pico with chips made by the property caretakers Will and Gloria. The floor plan is perfect for a large group. We had some early risers in the group and some that slept in and with the bedroom door closed, no outside noise could be heard. Our group spent hours in the afternoon enjoying the pool and view from back patio. We collected sea shells on the beach and kayaked in front of the casa. Xel ha is just 10 minute drive and 4 different restaurants are within walking distance of this property. We tried all the restaurants and found them each to be delightful. Our favorite meal however; was the grilled grouper and bacon wrapped shrimp with all the trimmings that Will and Gloria made for us at the property. We felt very spoiled. Will also recommended a local fisherman to take some of our group fishing and they caught a 5 foot 50 lb barracuda! Will also prepared that fish into ceviche and filets for us. Our beds were made, entire house cleaned, pool cleaned and dishes were done each day for us by these efficient caretakers. The road is a private road with private security and security even patrolled the beach at night giving even the most anxious of our group piece of mind. We all agreed this was the perfect home in the perfect location. We would definately return to this property if we return to this area.

This beautiful and spacious home is a dream vacation spot. Restaurants and a cenote are within walking distance or just stay put and be pampered by the excellent staff, Will and Gloria, who prepared food and drinks, gave plenty of local tips, and arranged for massages on the rooftop. Just delightful!

Great house close to Tulum

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Casa Tres Palmeras with My wife and 5 children for 8 days and We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is very spacious on the beach with a nice pool. They have hammocks in the back of the house overlooking the beach, which we've enjoyed all day and night. Caretakers were very helpful and cleaned the house everyday. They also make a killer guacamole and salsa.

There are 4 comfortable bedrooms with air conditioning and private bathrooms. Wifi works well.

The house is on a very nice stretch of beach, we took long walks every morning. There's a Cenote down the road, which we really enjoyed throughout our stay. The restaurant across the road from the Cenote makes a great cappuccino.

The house is a convenient 15 drive into the main beach road of Tulum.

Pam, the owner of the house, was super accommodating and helpful. We highly recommend this property to anyone staying in Tulum.

Tankah is part of a protected turtle nesting ground. From May through September you can see large sea turtles coming ashore to nest. You can also see babies turtles hatching and making their way to the ocean. It truly is a magnificent experience. Biosphere in Tulum/ Hidden World Cenotes/ Xel-ha all nearby.
