  • Comfort and class in relative seclusion on your own beach

    "If you're the kind of vacationer who prefers a choose-your-own-adventure style of travel while still enjoying a comfortable setting, this property may be what you're looking for. There are not too many better properties we could find in the area. I highly recommend it, but for one thing which I'll speak to: A beautiful house on the best beach in the area. If we saw 5 people on the beach all day we were surprised. Evenings on the balcony or patio were quiet and peaceful. A ton of little details and care were taken for the property, which really make the place feel like home for your time there. The on-site staff are there when you need something, but will leave you to yourself when you don't. Things to note: Because of the far-removed nature of this property, and location in an eco-reserve, conservation of resources is necessary. That mostly means watch how much water you use. No AC, but it is not needed with the sea-breeze blowing through. You'll need your own car, and I recommend an SUV for comfort. Groceries in town are your best bet for supplies (buy lots of bottled water), we chose to grab what we needed on the way in and again while out on tours. Beyond that, definitely check out the amazing dining options in the Tulum hotel zone or beyond. Location is a relatively safe area for travel, but common sense and awareness should prevail when on vacation ... especially so far out of the way. There are critters all around ... not to be alarming, just aware. Giant iguanas or monitors are the most obvious (and of course, mosquitoes and little pests), but we saw a tarantula the size of a large hand and a 7-8 foot snake crossing the road one night. I'm sure larger unseen critters lurk in the jungle at night. I don't consider any of the above as a negative, but you should go in with eyes open. Beautiful hooded orioles sang outside our windows every morning! The only negative ... and it is hard to call it a negative when we had such an amazing vacation property ... would be the beds. Still a 5 star rating, and my wife and I would definitely like to return. Just note the beds pictured above are doubles, and for 2 adults it is a little cramped for my tastes. My wife and I traveled alone and ended up sleeping in separate rooms after the first night. We're not big people! If we were to return I'd be more interested if the beds were upsized to queen, there should be space in the rooms. ... Small nitpicky thing in an otherwise fabulous getaway!"

  • Perfect spot for our family

    "We stayed at the condo March 30 - April 7, 2016. We are a family of 5 with 3 boys 9 and under. This was our first time renting through VRBO and our first time travelling to Mexico. We had a fabulous time - and would recommend it to everyone. Owners - Peggy was super helpful with answers to our questions before we booked and with maps and lots of information after we booked. While we were there, they were doing some work on the septic system in an adjacent building - Peggy was right on top of it, notifying us that it was going on and asked us to let her know if it interfered with our vacation (which it didn't). Condo amenities - the condo itself was well equipped with everything we needed - basic spices for cooking, along with pots, pans, dishes, bottled water, etc.; beach towels and shower towels; wifi; bedding (although we brought a small blow-up mattress for our youngest child, so he could sleep in the same room as his brothers, rather than on the couch), etc.. The pools were lots of fun and my boys spent at least some of every day in them. For the most part, we had the pools to ourselves, which was also very nice. The grounds are kept very neat and tidy and everyone was friendly and helpful. Location - close enough to the amenities in Akumal (grocery, dive shop, souvenirs, etc.), but far enough away that we didn't have to deal with the crowds of people coming in to see the turtles (unless we were going to see them ourselves - but go early or late in the day ... a lot less people). Plus, able to walk 2 minutes to Yal-Ku for snorkelling (a huge highlight!!). Also easy driving distance to Aktun Chen (kids LOVED the zip lining, cave walk and cenote); Coba and Tulum; Xel-Ha (although we didn't go - too much other stuff to see and do). Finally, I can't talk about the location, without mentioning the snorkeling right outside your door. Fantastic! My kids were new to snorkeling, but had no problems exploring the reefs in Half Moon Bay. Not as many fish as Yal-Ku, but lots of very interesting coral formations and other see creatures. The rocky shore is also lots of fun to explore. Overall, we had a fantastic time and would not hesitate in coming back!!"

  • Wonderful Rental and Vacation

    "My friends and I stayed at this rental for a week and it was exactly what we needed! There were 8 of us taking a group trip and it fit our needs perfectly. I think this rental would also work well for multiple families looking to vacation together. The house is exactly as it looks in the pictures if not better! Gianni is very helpful and responsive. He responded to my many emails prior to the trip and helped coordinate our transport from the airport to the villa, as well as a stop at the grocery store. He also got us in touch with a taxi driver upon arrival so that we could get around the city. There was a broken shower head when we arrived and it was fixed immediately once I let Gianni know. Sue is happy to cook for you during your stay and we did that the night of our arrival and it was all prepared when we got to the villa. She also gives an amazing massage and I highly recommend you get one in order to add some extra relaxation to your trip. The housekeeper and pool boy did a great job everyday cleaning up and keeping the house in order. They were very kind and never got in our way on the days we decided to stay around the house. The pool was amazing and we spent much more time there then we did in the ocean but if you want to go to the ocean it is a quick (but sometimes rocky) walk down the beach where there is also a great "hidden" restaurant that you definitely have to check out. I 100% recommend this house for a stay in Tulum! It is on the beach but away from the strip of resorts that attract so many tourists. It is a quick and cheap taxi drive away from the Tulum city center and the resort area if you want to check out some of those restaurants. This place is great because you get so much privacy and have your own space and pool but it is very easy to get to any other parts of Tulum that you want to experience. I plan on coming back to Tulum in the future and renting this property again it was so fantastic!"

  • Piece of paradise

    "We loved Casa Bonita, and the laid back, beach-front air that went with it. Guy is a lovely host, attentive to desires but encouraging of a most relaxing time, recommending staying near the house and giving great recommendations for the few excursions we ventured on because Casa Bonita was perfect for everyone. Chef Irma's meal was fantastic, and we recreated versions of it throughout our stay. Bernardo and the housecleaning staff were wonderful as well. My only reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars is that the kitchen was poorly stocked with equipment for the price. I thoroughly enjoyed preparing meals in the ocean breeze but expected better knives, more dishes, four eyes on the stove to work and for the equipment to be of slightly higher quality. When we arrived, one outlet didn't work but it was fixed the next day. Also, the last night and next day, the wifi didn't work, but this was ok by us. Don't go here if you cannot fully unplug. Do go here to melt into relaxation, an owl's soft hoot and a gentle gulf breeze."
