Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for 10 days in July. This is a beautiful location and so peaceful! We spent hours lying in the hammocks, kayaking and relaxing in the pool. Armondo works hard at keeping up with the seaweed and helping with anything you need. Delia keeps the house immaculate and cooks a lovely welcome meal. We had her cook for us two other times while we were there and we loved each meal. We walked down to the cenote and swam in it twice also. There are so many terrific restaurants in Tulum and Akumal that you cannot get a bad meal.

We saw the giant turtles two nights and we know they were laying eggs there every night but we were fast asleep by then. One night the turtle woke us up when she was on the patio next to the master bedroom, so if you hear a slapping noise it is the turtle!

Eric contacted us during the stay and we felt if we had any issue they would be addressed. This rental is very well managed and that is reassuring in a foreign country. We have been to Mexico on several occasion and have stayed at boutique resorts in the past but honestly this house is the way to go.

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and right on the beach. The caretakers Armando and Delia are kind and there to help with anything you need. Delia is a great cook.

We have traveled all over the world, but this is the most restful vacation we've ever had. We loved every minute of it.

The beds were a bit too hard for our taste, so if you like a firm mattress you are in luck.

You might want to consider bringing more money (pesos) than you think you'll need. Almost none of the local businesses or attractions (including restaurants) accept credit cards. They also give you a poor exchange rate if you use dollars.

If you have any questions or concerns about the villa, the owner Eric is very responsive.

We loved our stay and are looking forward to going again soon. It really is a little peice of heaven.

Another great stay at Pedacito de Cielo

  • 5 of 5

"A little piece of heaven " indeed. Great house, great location. The kid friendly pool was just the place for our one year old grandson. Good local restaurants and shopping made for easy logistics. Loved the Tulum ruins, Sac Aktun cenote and just hanging on the perfect backyard beach. Great snorkeling spot right offshore. The owners and house staff are friendly and wonderfully attentive. A five star experience in a five star home!!!!!

We had such a beautiful and magical stay at Un Pedacito del Cielo!

  • 5 of 5

Eric and Isabelle's home in Tankah Bay is gorgeous. Every room was spacious and immaculatly kept. Armondo and Delia were so kind and helpful. If we needed anything, they were always willing to help us. Delia cooked us a delicious dinner and Armondo was more than willing to go get us food at the grocery or call a cab for us. He even went and exchanged our dollars into pesos!

We almost never left the property. There was no need. The beach, the sea, the wind, the birds and turtles, the trees, the pool and the communal outdoor table kept us occupied and at peace. We were five women. And the most common thing we kept saying to each other was that this place is magical. We didn't want to leave.

We did walk to near by restaurants and did some kayaking, which the villa supplied for us and took one trip to the Mayan Ruins which was about a 10 minute drive.

Thank you so much for such an excellent and divine vacation. Our plan is to return every year!

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!

- The famous 5th Avenue, in Playa del Carmen which has hundreds of stores, bars and restaurants.

- Scuba-diving: There are a lot of scuba-diving centers around our villa (one being at 4 minutes walking distance), that specialized in PADI certifications, dives in the Caribbean sea, in the caves or cenotes.
