About Enrique Badulescu
I am a Fashion Photographer currently based in New York City, who has had the wonderful opportunity of working for many of the top international magazines and publications. My work has given me the gift to travel extensively and explore so many of the world's beautiful spots throughout my career. My many of my photo assignments have allowed me to spend extended periods in large cities such as London, Paris, Munich, Rio, Mexico City and New York, others have taken me to some very remote small towns and interesting areas worldwide. I love to discover new places and I often do due to the nature of my job. With so many beautiful spots around the world, there are many more to explore and others I keep returning to. Tulum is one of the ones I keep returning to. Tulum offers beautiful surroundings not far from my base in New York. My work often takes me there and I often visit to relax with family and friends. Having grown up in Mexico City, it is nice for me to return to my country of origin; it provides a haven and often a stop over on my way to Mexico City. It is the combination of beauty and easy access that make this place so appealing to me and with its sunny weather and spots of interest.
Enrique Badulescu purchased this House in 1999
Why Enrique Badulescu chose Tulum
I started going to Tulum for work when it was a small, laid back village, with few simple and lovely hotels and long stretches of beautiful beaches with only a few bathers. At the time, I had arrived to an area some hours away, that while very beautiful, was not quite what I was looking for, to complete that photo shoot. My team and I decided to explore the surrounding areas and after several hours of driving through various roads, we finally arrived in Tulum. The natural beauty of the sea, the lovely fresh water cenotes (underground freshwater rivers) and rich archeological history appealed to me immediately. Having completed that photo session, I kept returning both on assignment and with friends and family for vacation. After several visits over a few years, I decided to buy a plot of land on which to build a house that would be a base when working there and also a venue to entertain friends and family. Though the land was bought in the mid 90's, construction did not begin in earnest until mid 1998 and was finished and inaugurated for the millennium. I have since enjoyed it as a vacation home and a base of operations while working there. I have witnessed the rapid growth and change that has taken place since my first introduction to Tulum. I still enjoy going there whenever the opportunity arises. The house is in a beautiful spot, with direct access to the beach, a few minutes away from the town itself and in close proximity to many interesting sights. There are many restaurants offering a variety of local and international cuisines.
What makes this House unique
There are few beachfront properties left as many have been sold and developed. This house offers the amenities and privacy of a house in a lovely beach.
