  • Our Dream Vacation in Tulum

    "I really can't overestimate how lucky my friends and I were to find this property for our Mexico vacation. We wanted to stay somewhere homey and beautiful, that felt comfortable and casual. We wanted to experience the real Tulum - not just the touristy parts. We wanted the freedom to decide whether we'd run around the city getting into all types of adventures, or just hang around the house and swim in the pool. Well, this house gave us EVERYTHING we wanted. Gianni and Sue were perfectly gracious and helpful, even coming downstairs once in a while to help us usher out a few creepy crawlies from our bathrooms! For the price, you simply cannot do any better. One day, I went on an excursion that included some folks who were staying in Cancun hotels. Our wonderful tour guide dropped us off at our villa (since it's a good mile and a half down from the main road) and the other folks in the car couldn't believe that we got to stay in such an incredible place for such a reasonable price. If you want a vacation that you can build yourself, instead of having everything taken care of by the hotel concierge, this is your best option. The perfect mix of comfort, style, and authenticity!"

  • Even better than the pictures

    "I searched long and hard for a nice place to take my family in Tulum. We're a family of six with four kids (23, 21, 18, and 15 - girl, boy, girl, boy). We flew into Cancun from Maryland and rented a van and drove to Tulum. We stopped off along the way in Playa de Carmen for a late lunch and some high energy fun. We arrived as it was getting dark so we were a bit worried about finding it. Luis, the building supervisor, met us at the gate to let us in. (Let me also mention that Luis is AWESOME. He is friendly, attentive and responsive to any needs, and has a great attitude. He kept our beach clean and clear of any seaweed, moved our cushions back and forth to the waterfront palapas, and always has a smile. And why wouldn't he? He works in Paradise. The owner, Luu, is awesome as well. She is truly vested in our family's best interest and aims to please - but again, this place does most of the work by itself) Our girls had their own KING size bed EACH in their own room w their own bathroom, the boys had their own bed (one was a double bed, the other a single) and their own bathroom, and my wife and I took the back bedroom, queen bed, with its own bathroom. The setup was perfect. The living area was huge and enjoyed every day and night. We made breakfast every morning. There is a store about 8 minutes away by car and it is a Mexican Super WalMart w/ EVERYTHING you could possibly need. (you can't buy beer until after 9 AM. Lol. My bad on that one. And btw, a 12 pack of Corona was $5! Also: bring Mexican pesos instead of US dollars - they go farther). Renting a van was A LOT easier than I anticipated. It made us very portable. Every day was a different adventure: many cenotes to explore (you HAVE to see and experience them!), Tulum ruins, natural parks, fishing trips, snorkeling, the WORKS. I have two Vegans in the family and there were TWO outstanding vegan restaurants within walking distance from the place: "Restaurau" and "Charlie's Vegan Tacos". And Charlie is a super cool dude. Each meal we had was a good as the next and there are SO many to choose from. There is a brick oven pizza place about 150 steps away (where my kids hit three different times late!). The concrete deck is about 45 steps to the water. Palapas and beach recliners are for US and us only to use. There is a beachfront bar next door! And boy do the stars fill the night sky. Amazing. Man, this was fun to write as I revisited Tulum and our awesome vacation."

  • Sweet Place, Nice Base for Riviera Maya Fun

    "We really enjoyed La Sirena #4. We are at the time of the stay a couple with a 14-year old daughter. The description and pictures are very accurate and give a great idea of the condo layout and features. Everything worked well--Canadian satellite TV, air conditioning and blender most importantly. We spent more time in the pool than expected, as it was really pleasant there. We also snorkeled off the beach and around the corner at Yal-Ku Lagoon. We loved La Buena Vida restaurant on the other side of Half Moon Bay, which had a menu very friendly for our vegan girl. An appropriate request of the mariachi is Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash. The best beer we found was Mondo Maya (from Playa) served in one liter bottles at La Buena Vida. We also enjoyed a meal at Lol-Ha. Our tips include bring surf shoes. Grab some groceries on the way (we stopped at WalMart in Playa. Very cheap bakery there). The air conditioning is solid and the place tight and it keeps the house cool for hours after you turn it off. For take-home good tequila your options are Viva Zapata in Tulum or a couple of places on 5th Avenue in Playa. The unit came with a 5-gallon drinking water bottle. Staff would have replaced it with a new one had we needed replenishment. We loved La Buena Vida restaurant on the other side of Half Moon Bay, which had a menu very friendly for our vegan girl. An appropriate request of the mariachi is Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash. The best beer we found was Mondo Maya (from Playa) served in one liter bottles at La Buena Vida. We also enjoyed a meal at Lol-Ha. La Sirena has around 12 or so condos in the three story building on the beach and four standalone homes around the pool gardens. 2 sets of 3 steps up. The whole place was less than half occupied in mid-summer, and we often had the beach alone. Security Alfredo oversees the complex during the day and police stay near the condo entrance at the junction to Yal-Ku Lagoon during the evenings. The housekeeper tailored cleaning to our schedule and requests (for example, towels, trash and recycling, or one day with a more thorough clean). The condo was very clean on arrival. Wi-fi was outstanding. We caught an arm of Hurricane Earl (landfall in Belize) on our last night. A crew came by and cleared anything that could be windblown from outside and furniture from the sunken living room. Power dropped twice briefly, which was better than we expected at the level of storm. Terry is a thoughtful, communicative host."

  • Great location on the beach

    "We had a great time at Casa Palapa in August 2016. Prior to staying at the property, my biggest reservation was that the owner didn't offer online booking through VRBO's checkout so I wasn't eligible for the "Book with Confidence Guarantee." The pricing seemed competitive for the area, so I felt uneasy about not having the guarantee in this age of scams, but we went forward anyway. Thankfully everything was as pictured and as described with only positive surprises. The home is super clean (the cleaning woman comes every morning but Sunday and spends hours), and the view is amazing! It felt like our own private beach and we did not have any issues with excessive seaweed in August. Snorkeling was great directly in front of the house. The man who takes care of the grounds raked the sand every morning and cut us fresh coconuts to drink from the beautiful grove of coconut trees that surprised us as being the front yard of the house. We didn't see any turtles, but saw tracks in the morning of where some came up to the house overnight. We paid $75 for Pio's wife Luz to cook us dinner the first night. We had 5 adults, and she gave enough food (chicken, cauliflower, rice, veggies, pico and guac for appetizer) for 10 and it was tasty. Unfortunately the fridge didn't feel reliable enough to hold leftovers (I think we lost power one night possibly). My ONLY complaint is really for Mexico in August. It's hot, so the house got very warm and the only place to find relief is in the breezy Palapa (very comfortable there) or the air conditioned upstairs bedrooms. The owner mentioned he is considering putting in a 1st floor A/C unit. If that happens, zero complaints on the house. We may be back some day!"
