Enjoying a Tropical drink in Paradise.

David & Jadee Craig

The Owner purchased this villa in 2003

It was never our intention to build this house for a vacation rental, however after building it, we decided that it would be nice for others to enjoy it as much as we do.

Because of the close proximity to the reef the snorkeling is INCREDIBLE! It is also a perfect bay to kayak in. The house itself really gives you the feel that you are in the Caribbean, as it maximzes the views & the tropical breezes. All of the glass walls that look out to the beach and ocean really bring the outdoors in, it's just a lovely place to be.

Just returned from a week in March, 2010. Absolutely fabulous vacation in a wonderful location at a beautiful home that exceeded our expectations. Fantastic value for the price paid. The beach is beautiful, quiet, and private with some of the best snorkeling that we have experienced. It is quite rocky and water shoes were necessary until you get out a bit past the reef. We decided that Caribbean Soul has the best location on the beach, since there are no houses close by on either side and it gets full southern exposure so you get to enjoy the sun all day long. The house is nicely maintained and very clean. The on site caretakers saw to our every need and provided some excellent meals for us. Rent a car so you can take day trips to the nearby ruins and get into town (10 minutes) for shopping, groceries, and meals. You can walk to the nearby cenote for more snorkeling. There is a restaurant within walking distance and a little convenience store, but we preferred to go into town. We were 3 couples traveling together and each couple felt that they had their own space and privacy to enjoy while sharing the convenience of a kitchen and very comfortable living area. We will absolutely definitely stay at Caribbean Soul again and would recommend it 100% to anyone who wanted to stay there, except that we want to keep this wonderful property our own personal secret! The rental experience was very easy with no problems, the owner was quick to respond to any questions and prompt with our deposit refund. Can't wait to return!
Owner's Response: It's nice to hear that you enjoyed your vacation at my home in Tankah!
I am glad that your snorkeling experience was more than the average. That is what I most love
about the location of my home because of the close proximity of the reef it is like snorkeling in an aquarium, you just never know what you will see! I do hope you return to Tankah and stay in my home again. Thank you for choosing Casa Caribbean Soul! JHC

"Caribbean Soul is a gem!"
February 14-21/2009

"Casa Caribbean Soul is a beautiful, immaculate, comfortable vacation home. Everything from the towels to the furniture, the artwork,even the windows is first class. If you can appreciate quiet, natural, semi-secluded beauty you will love it. Snorkeling and ocean swimming is outstanding right out front in the bay.

Jadee, the owner, was very helpful to us in our preparation for the trip and was very responsive to our inquiries.

The sandy beach in front is raked clean and flat daily by the wonderful caretaker Marcos, who is very friendly and helpful and ever-vigilant in his care for the guests. His wife, Leydi, is an excellent cook and will prepare your meals for a reasonable fee, which we HIGHLY recommend. Take Marcos into town to buy lobster tails and let them cook them up...they will blow your mind!!!

Inside, the casa is tastefully decorated and is extremely comfortable. Each bedroom has a luxurious bath with lovely granite countertops and spacious walk-in showers. Forget about lowering your expectations since it is Mexico...this place is NICE in anyone's book.

We have looked at most of the nearby bays in Soliman and Akumal, but we prefer Tankah, since there are no boats or jetskis disturbing the peace, and there are no mega-resorts clogging the beaches. It is just a peaceful place with a laid-back slow pace. If you want discos, don't go here...but if you want peace and relaxation, this is the ticket.

The archeological sites of Tulum and Coba are nearby. Both are worth the trip. If you want restaurants, there are a couple of good ones just on the bay, and several more in town, but we preferred to cook at home, or let the housekeepers cook for us...

Anyway, this is our second trip to Tankah, and this house really made a great vacation even better. "

"Beautiful And Very Private, Great Vacation"

"We went last June(2008) to Casa Caribbean Soul.
We had a wonderful time. Very reasonable for what you get. Great views and beautiful for snorkeling right outside your door. The house was kept very clean everyday by the on-sight groundkeepers. They will cook for you also. Great customer service. Lots of things to do nearby. Tulum is beautiful one of the prettiest beaches I have seen. I want to take our kids back there soon. It seemed very safe. Fly into Cancun and rent a car you will have a wonderful time. "

"Bravo, Casa Caribbean Soul"

"My family of five were there Jan. 09 to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We had researched many many villas in the Mayan Riviera and we kept coming back to Casa Caribbean Soul as the place to stay. Solitude, location, water, amenities, and style, style, style. If we had just noticed that sea turtle that was in our video while we were there we would never have left that beautiful bay. And there are very few, if any, other villas that can boast enjoying sunsets across water, from the roof no less! It was for us 'the way' to share our family time.

Kudos to Jadee, Casa Caribbean Soul is special."

"Christmas at Casa Caribbean Soul"

ProfJane Minneapolis.
Date of Stay: December 20/2008- January 3/2009

"We stayed at Casa Caribbean Soul for two weeks with 6 adults. The house is beautiful with all the amenities and exceedingly spacious for 3 couples or a family. Each bedroom suite was private and had a large and very modern bath with shower. Everything is new, comfortable, and luxurious. There was maid service everyday and she even washed all our dishes. The caretaker also helped us with other house chores and made us feel safe in a relatively out of the way site. It was super relaxing. The house is literally on the beach. The beach has sand but you need shoes to take a walk. We snorkeled right in front of the house. If you want waves and a traditional beach head for Tulum. The area has lots to do and you need a car. It is really close to Tulum (15 min. max) for groceries, and Akumal is just as close for diving. Both are good for restaurants. There are also restaurants within walking distance but they are expensive and not that great. We did side quick trips to the cenotes and other beaches with waves. I highly recommend this property if you want a spacious and upscale house in a quiet location. We will go back again."
