BEHLA is a private and unique oceanfront house located on Tulum Beach, one of the most pristine and beautiful beaches in the world.
The house sits right on the powder-white sand, between the warm turquoise Caribbean Sea and the jungle. Behla is spacious and bright with high ceilings, a wall of French doors opening to the ocean on both floors, and plenty of terraces and windows that offer magnificent ocean and jungle views.
Behla is the perfect house to enjoy the best of beach living. Wake up in your comfortable bed with just the ocean in front of you. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace of your choice, then swim in the warm Caribbean Sea, lounge under a palm tree, kite surf, nap, practice yoga in the sea's breeze, or put your feet up (literally) on your private oceanfront terrace with one of the best massage therapists in Tulum…. You may finish the day with a margarita on the roof watching the sun set over the jungle, and walk in the shallow surf to a nearby restaurant or, better yet, savor a gourmet meal prepared and served to you at home or on the beach.
There are 3 rooms (which sleep 8), 3.5 bathrooms and an open kitchen overlooking a large living and dining area. The decor is modern with Asian and Mexican inspired details, and hand-made furniture and artwork.
At Behla, we understand that excellence in service is vital to a perfect vacation, and our personnel and amenities reflect this. Moreover, you can enjoy the luxury with a clear conscience as we are a socially and environmentally responsible organization.

We just spent 6 days at Behla Palapita the smallest of the 3 Behla properties on the beach. We are a family of 4. 2 adults and 2 children. We arrived after dark and were greeted by Marco, the house manager and 2 other young men. The property was lit by tiki torches and very welcoming. Marco escorted us into the house and showed us around while the other guys brought our luggage in. It is tastefully decorated just as stated on the website. A combination of rustic and chic and was very clean. We had pre ordered dinner since we knew we would be arriving late. Our personal cook Idell prepared a fabulous dinner for us of tacos and grilled fish and wonderful sides and fresh lemonade for our kids, as she did on a couple of more occasions and all were spectacular! The fridge was also stocked with the Coronas as we had requested and fresh fruit was waiting for us too. Upon sunrise the next morning, which seems to come early, we were pleasantly surprised of the gorgeous view we had. Perfect white powder sand and aqua blue water. Throughout our stay Marco would stop by everyday to see if we needed anything and the entire house was cleaned everyday and fresh towels brought in. A few days in the owner Renaud stopped by to say hello and check on us. He was wonderful and friendly. The kind of person you'd like to hang out with! We didn't get to meet his wife Loree on this trip but she was a delight to work with prior to going and has followed up by email since we returned home. All in all, the home was perfect and the staff were perfect! The location on the beach is perfect too as you seem to be in the middle of all the other homes, hotels, and restaurants and walking distance to many of them. Also, we felt very safe here. We look forward to returning to Behla! Not only because of the home, but because of the owners and staff! Thank you Renaud, Loree, Marco, and the others!
