Property description

The Pink House combines luxury hotel amenities with attention to artistic detail, festive informality, and incredible natural beauty. The house was designed to brings the outdoors in, so you can enjoy spectacular views from every space in the house.

The three spacious bedrooms have unique en-suite bathrooms, ceiling fans, air-conditioning, black-out curtains, terraces, iPod docks, and safes. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and the other bedrooms have dressers and armoires. There is a sleep-sofa in the second bedroom. The mattresses and linens are the highest quality guaranteeing a great night sleep!

The large open-plan first floor is a combination living room, dining room, and professional kitchen, with everything you need to cook, bake, grill, and make ice-cream! If you don't feel like cooking, but want to stay home, Pancho and Berta can prepare fresh, delicious meals for you.

The house opens up onto a terrace and a natural-looking stone pool. The outdoor eating area is shaded. There are lounging areas by the pool, surrounded by gardens for privacy. Or head for the beach palapa, to read on the hammocks or sunbathe on the lounge chairs. We have kayaks and snorkel equipment!

At night, whether it is an intimate romantic getaway or a group holiday, you will feel transported by the magical lights that illuminate the pool and woods, not to mention the breathtaking stars! Unlike most villas, we have preserved our jungle (between the street and the house). Our gardens have a profusion of flowering hibiscus, bougainvillea, orchids, sea cabbage and a wide variety of native trees that attract hummingbirds, Baltimore orioles and many other birds.

Daily housekeeping is included and chef services are available at an extra cost.
We can book spa services, private yoga classes, fishing/diving trips, and virtually anything else you might want.

Soliman Bay is a private enclave that offers complete quietude, just a short drive from the colorful center of Tulum and the hip restaurants and nightlife of the Tulum Beach area.

The Pink House is next door to Hotel Jashita, an upscale boutique hotel, with a restaurant, bar and small boat for fishing/diving trips that you can book.


From the historian, birdwatcher, botany buff to the thrill seeker, all interests will be satisfied by the area's rich offerings. The ancient Maya ruins of Tulum, Coba, and Muyil are between 15 -45 minutes away. Many eco-theme parks are nearby, offering jungle zip-lining, cenotes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cenote), and much more. Or just swim, snorkel and relax on your own large stretch of soft white sand beach. At the other end of the bay, Chamico's is a rustic outdoor restaurant serving some of the freshest seafood and the best guacamole.

The house is designed to sleep three couples plus a few children - if your party exceeds this amount, please contact us regarding our charming thatch-roof bungalow next to the house. It has a queen-size bed, a loft with a full-size air mattress, a fully-equipped kitchen, a coral indoor/outdoor shower, and a front porch with a dining area and a hammock.

Designed and built by artist Jill Hunter, The Pink House boasts vibrant colors that conjure the rich palette of Mexican architecture, with the attention to comfort of a five-star hotel.

Other Amenities

  • I highly recommend renting a car. They are very reasonable—sometimes you can rent a car for a week for the same price as a taxi to the house. We do not provide transportation to and from the airport. There are transportation services. I don't recommend taking a taxi to the property as the airport taxi company is a monopoly and charges twice as much. Going by back by taxi is relatively reasonable ($75-$100, depending on the season, cost of gas, and exchange rate). ...moreless
