Tulum House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 2-7)
Nah Alux is located on the soft white coral sand beaches of beautiful Soliman Bay. The waves break a few yards out from our beach on the second longest barrier reef in the world. Kayak or snorkel in the calm waters right out your front door in a bay that abounds with the beautiful coral and tropical fish, turtles, conch, and lobster. The bay is great snorkeling and kayaking for kids and adults alike. To the back of the property is a heated massage jet pool.
Our Palapa style House with concrete Bovida roofs is built for privacy. The kitchen and living room area has its own bath and is separated by a garden from the bedrooms. The bedrooms are private from each other and each has a king-size bed or twin beds if you prefer ...private and outdoor showers and patios. The downstairs bedroom has a unique shower with a private garden. We have Mario and Reyna, our onsite Caretakers living on the property who will take good care of you. We also have a Palapa Carport to keep your car cool and off the street.
There are two shade palapas on the beach with hammock and beach chairs. A back stair from the main house leads to a shaded jungle deck which is great for watching the sunset, doing yoga or reading in the hammock while looking out over the mangrove. This could be the Caribbean experience you have dreamed of, very private and quiet, except for the tropical birds!

About Colleen White
Allow us to introduce ourselves: We are Jon and Colleen White. We first traveled to Akumal and the Tulum area in 1993. We live remote in the Mountains of Alaska and it was time to thaw out for a Christmas Holiday…
Colleen White purchased this house in 2000
Why Colleen White chose Tulum
In our explorations we discovered property for sale in Soliman Bay. We purchased a lot when the Bay was absolutely secluded. It has been grand watching it grow into a small community of Palapa style homes, and some larger, (but no condos in the Bay). In 2001 we began construction on our home and moved in by December of the same year. It is wonderful to have our home in amongst the Palm Trees. It is so cool and refreshing all the time. No need for air conditioning because we are set back and surrounded with so much garden. The tropical breeze and oxygen from the plants keep us plenty cool. We can putter in our garden. Play out front under our shade Palapas overlooking the gorgeous bay. Watch the sunrise, swim, snorkel, dive, kayak and people watch. We love the dogs who come by to say good morning and pick up a treat on their rounds. And, we love our wonderful people neighbors as well! We gather ever so often for dinners on the patio and discuss the news of the area. The community involvement is grand as can be seen by the rustic yet pristine improvements to the area. And we love the wonderful Mayan people who work and live in the area. It is a challenge to learn the Mayan and Spanish languages! A challenge we are up to exploring together and the Mayan and Mexican people are so patient and helpful in our endeavors.
What makes this house unique
We usually began our mornings sitting on the front patio with our coffee and in May we can see the turtles surface for a breath of air or the little Angel Fish come right up to the shore almost out of the water to chew on some treasured morsel. While overhead the pelicans are flying and diving down for breakfast. It is all so breathtaking! The sunrises are spectacular over the water each morning! And, the community is full of wonderful, kind and helpful neighbors. We are truly in love with Soliman Bay and the neighbors who make it a wonderful place to live. And just to make sure we enjoyed the sun from sunrise to sunset, we close the day watching the sunset with Margaritas from the back jungle patio.
We started a diary to share our fun with all our guests. This has developed into a wonderful itinerary of places to go and things to see. One of the first things I do when I arrive back in my paradise is to read the entries from all who have shared our home.
We certainly hope you have as wonderful an experience enjoying our tropical home on your vacation! We look forward to your entries in our diaries.
Saludas! Colleen and Jon
