Amazing experience, wonderful location, unforgettable memories

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the "Little Bit of Heaven" from June 26 to July 3, 2017. Our experience was exceptional. The location is fantastic. The property is just as described. The welcome packet is loaded with great tips and suggestions to make your trip the best it can be. The owners are very responsive to questions and proactively inquired with us after arrival to ensure everything as expected. A few of our favorite things about our experience:

Waking to beautiful sunrises over the ocean and walking on the beach enjoying coffee.

We loved being able to swim in the ocean, rinse our feet and take a dip in the refreshing pool.

The grounds were meticulously cared for. We almost didn't want to walk in the sand after it was cleaned and raked each day.

Sea turtles were nesting on the beach in on the property. We stayed up one night and watched three turtles dig nests just a few feet away.

The ocean kayaks were loads of fun.

And finally, Delia is a fantastic cook. We had her cook several meals for us. It was like having a private chef in our own house. She prepared meals by request (the fresh snapper was fabulous and the shrimp was the best we've ever had). She even accommodated dietary preferences for one of our children. We ate at several high-end restaurants while in Tulum, and her cooking was second to none of them. In addition, she would set the table outside on the patio, and cleanup, all while we enjoyed playing on the beach or in the pool.

In all, we had a dreamy vacation and none of us were ready to leave. I've already recommended this property to several of my friends and family. We are already thinking about when we will go back.

A True Piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this amazing place! The owner, Eric, is so great to work with and the caretaking couple, Armando and Delia, made our stay so wonderful. We didn't realize we were going to have housekeeping service and it was such a nice surprise to have Delia come in and clean up after us every morning. Armando keeps the pool and beach looking pristine. We had Delia cook a few meals for us and they were out of this world! The next day they unexpectedly made us a huge bowl of ceviche with fresh avocado for lunch! When our daughter asked Armando to open a coconut for her, he chilled four of them and cut them open for all of us! We used the kayaks a bunch and took them out snorkeling the beautiful reef areas. The pool was fabulous and the kids pretty much lived in it the whole week! The house is beautiful and just as described. All the rooms are spacious and lovely. The bachelor suite has its own separate entrance which makes it private and ideal for staying with extended family or friends. The A/C units in each room work great. We were able to use our Netflix account on the AppleTV at night for the kids. We followed all the recommendations in the welcome package and had no problems with anything. We felt very safe there too. The location is ideal and close to Tulum, the ruins, many cenotes, and a huge grocery store. We recommend a trip to the Coba ruins (rent the bikes) and Zacil-Ha Cenote (bring mosquito repellant). We had the time of our lives at this "little piece of heaven" and never wanted to leave! We are eagerly awaiting the day we can come back to stay there again!

Perfect Family Beach villa

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home the first week in May. We stayed with our daughter, son in law and 2 grandchildren ages 1 and 3. Pool was great! Views were spectacular. Very safe home with families with small children. Home is exactly as described. Great area with many activities close by. You will need Beach shoes to get into ocean.

Best owners managing this house!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house from Eric in June of 2016. This year, the house was already rented so we picked another house in the area. That was a huge mistake you should've picked another time to come to This house. When we arrived at the other house no one was there to greet us. The other owner was not responding to our calls or emails and we were frantic. I decided to call Eric to see if he could help. Not only did Eric go out of his way to try to help us find a place to stay but he continued to check on us to make sure we were OK. He even called his mother-in-law who lives in Playa to see if we could stay with her, which she did offer. He also gave us a recommendation for a driver in the area. We will always stay at this house from now on, not just because it's an awesome house and a great location right on the beach but because the owner is a great person who has integrity and is genuinely a good, kindhearted person. Thank you again Eric you genuinely made our stay a lot better!

Owner's Response: Hi Michelle, Renting a house in a foreign country is not an easy task and could be quite challenging and stressful. I did feel your pain/stress when you called. As you know, we are ready to provide any help and that’s the reason you called. I am glad you did so, and I am glad that things got resolved in the end. Many thanks for your very kind words (I wasn’t expecting any feedback), and we can’t wait to have you back at the villa. You take very good care, Thanks so much again, Eric

Absolutely perfect! This villa and its location are PARADISE!!! Book it!!

  • 5 of 5

We were at Un Pedacito for the first two weeks of March, family of 7 plus a toddler. We are a fussy group and we all had different needs and expectations for our holiday. The villa met every, single individual need and went beyond our expectations of what we consider the perfect holiday escape. Eric (who we also had the absolute pleasure of meeting briefly), far exceeds the standards of communication expected by a property owner. As I said, we are a fussy group and there were three generations to cater for. I was emailing him long before we were due to fly out, with requests and queries. He answered every single email within 12 hours of my sending and was extremely available to us both on arrival and throughout our holiday. The villa itself is superbly located, you are on your own private stretch of beach. Breakfast in the mornings is overlooking the sand and the sea and it is breathtakingly beautiful to sit in the hammocks, under the coconut trees and take in the spectacular views. The real gem of this property, which makes it unique in comparisons to other villas along that stretch of beach is the live - in staff. Delia and Armando are amazing. Truly, there was not a single thing that was too much trouble for them during our stay. Armando is up early in the mornings, cleaning our stretch of beach and taking care of the pristine gardens and general maintenance of the property. He will also do your grocery shopping on request if you're feeling really lazy! Delia, the housekeeper, cleans the house from top to bottom (including the washing up, if there is any) every morning. She is also available to cook lunches and dinners on request and her food is spectacular. But, it is the warmth, the availability and the generosity of spirit of this super couple that made us warm to them immediately and made our stay so utterly seamless. They became friends by the end of our trip and we already miss them terribly! We had the most perfect holiday and an experience we are looking forward to repeating next year as we will most certainly be back! Paradise.

As an aside, I just read a review on here and I'm absolutely amazed that someone would give a four star rating for this property based on something as ludicrous as knives and a dishwasher!!! The kitchen is fully equipped (including functioning knives) and as I mentioned, if you don't want to wash your own dishes, Delia is all but available!

Eric, Armando and Delia, thank you all SO much for everything, we miss you!
