Tulum House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)
Welcome to Casa Tranquillo. A beautiful beach house located on the pristine, white sandy beach near Tulum.
The house is situated at approximately the 6.7 kilometer point on the main beach road. This is the road that runs south along the beach to Punta Allen. The road was recently resurfaced with asphalt and is easy to drive. We are a relatively short 10 to 12 minute ride from Tulum and it is easy to find. Just look for the blue posts with round, red reflectors. Another reference is that we are just past the Arifices Resort and just before Ana y Jose’s Hotel and Restaurant. You will pass the Anna y Jose's Beach Club on the way to our house.
Casa Tranquillo is a spacious, 2000 square foot house that has 30 meters or about 100 feet of beautiful, white sand beach frontage, facing the majestic Caribbean Sea.
Casa Tranquillo has 3 spacious bedrooms, all with king-size beds. Each bedroom has easy access to one of the 2 restrooms, with one on each level. Both restrooms have showers. There is also an outdoor, cold water shower and foot wash for you to rinse off, after you have a swim in the rich, blue-green, Caribbean Sea or after a morning or evening stroll down the tranquil, white fine limestone sandy beaches. The third level roof, with easy access off the thatch covered balcony, offers great views of sunrises, sunsets or star lit skies.
I encourage you to rent a car to get around. Taxis run from $7 to $10 each way from town to the house. If you elect to not rent a car, you could consider renting bicycles in the nearby village of Punta Piedra.
Your private beach-front home is surrounded by tropical and beach plants, including palm trees with coconuts, beautiful white beach lilies and many other native trees and plants.
This area of the Caribbean Sea is the home to many types of sea life, but of interest to you are the sea turtles. The turtles return to the beach where they were born to lay their eggs in the mid to late summer. If you are fortunate to be here during that season, you will be able to see these majestic 300 plus pound giants exit the sea and dig their nest.
The downstairs of the house is designed to be an open and friendly living area. The kitchen service bar separates the kitchen from the dining or leisure space. You can sit on a bar stool and sip your morning coffee, talking with those preparing breakfast. The kitchen is well equipped with a variety of appliances, including a gas stove with an oven and a gas refrigerator with a freezer. We also have a selection of cooking utensils, pots and pans, plates, glasses, cups, a electric juicer, coffee maker, toaster, and a blender for mixing the margaritas in the evening. Service for six is provided. We will provide plenty of bottled drinking water during your stay. The European propane gas refrigerator is spacious enough to store your fresh meat and produce purchase in town. The freezer is large enough for ice trays and several quarts of your favorite Mexican Ice Cream.
As a house warming gifts, we will stock the refrigerator with a case of cold Mexican beer or pop for you upon arrival. We will also provide a bountiful fruit basket for your enjoyment.
If barbequing is your thing, we have a propane gas grill that can be rolled out the back door to grill hamburgers, hotdogs, steaks or fresh fish you purchase at the local fisherman’s market in town.
We have several nice hammocks and hammock chairs for you to hang inside or outside. Lounge around and read your favorite book you brought along, or pick one from our library, or use them to take a traditional Mexican Siesta or nap.
One of the owners will be in Tulum during your stay, to personally attend to you and your group, in the event you have any questions or encounter any unforeseen problems. To make your stay less stressful and make contact with us easy, we will loan you a Mexican prepaid cell phone with our numbers pre-programmed to make reaching out easier.
Since there is no electrical service along the beach road, electricity at Casa Tranquillo is provided by a bank of solar panels. The power is stored in a bank of batteries and then converted using an inverter, so the house has US Standard 120v power. We use eco-friendly low wattage bulbs and try to conserve as much as possible. Please help us conserve electricity at all times.
Casa Tranquillo is equipped with a satellite dish antenna and we have Shaw Satellite television out of Canada but it has the major US networks for your evening entertainment. If you bring DVDs, you can watch them on our DVD player.
To help you enjoy the beach, we have 4 beach chaise lounge chairs, 4 Adirondack chairs and three palyapas (one with swings), out in front of the house. Do not forget the hammocks too. We also have 2 sea kayaks and 5 boogie boards for you to use in the surf during your stay.
You can prepare your own meals in your own kitchen after shopping at the various open markets and shops in Playa del Carmen or Tulum.
We hope that this will help you plan and prepare for a great stay at our house. There is a Mexican saying 'Mi Casa Es Su Casa', which translates as 'My House Is Your House'. We truly want you and your group to enjoy your stay in your house.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This guest review was posted on our Flipkey site and i have copied it here for your review.
My family, including two teens, and some family friends shared the house for the Thanksgiving holiday. The location couldn't be more perfect, right on the ocean, with snow white sand. We could hear the crashing waves and feel the sea breeze every night. Mike and Craig are wonderful, answering all our questions and providing every amenity needed, including coconuts that were peeled and ready to drink! We tried out the kayaks and body boards in the waves. Sat under palm trees and caught up on our reading. Watched the sunset from the rooftop deck in the evening. Made use of the kitchen for breakfast, lunch, appetizers, drinks -- with dinner at terrific restaurants located right on the beach within walking distance, I don't think I wore shoes the entire week! The wifi is weak, just enough for a quick email check, which can be a good thing if you really want to get away from it all. And if you can drag yourself away from Casa Tranquillo, there's plenty to do nearby: Tulum ruins, a walk through town, boat snorkeling trips, biosphere. A lovely lovely holiday. We'd definitely come back.
