About The Owner

Enjoying a Tropical drink in Paradise.

David & Jadee Craig

The Owner purchased this villa in 2003

Why The Owner chose Tulum

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The House Staff were very considerate and the most accommadating people. Their meals were all wonderful and fresh.Their food was so good I wanted to have them cook every meal! The House was just beautiful as well as the furnishings.The mattresses were expecially astonishing. I never slept so good. The bathrooms were perfect! The views from all rooms were absolutely breathtaking. The beach was right out the living room and very relaxing. I have been in Mexico every year but I will never stay anywhere else but here. I have never had so much fun and yet been able to relax and rest. Thank you so much for your beautiful home. I will be back soon.

Bravo, Casa Caribbean Soul

  • 5 of 5
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.

Extremely relaxing

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Cassa Caribbean Soul. It is a great house with plenty to see and do right at your doorstep. Nearby there is a "Cenote" -- a spectacular spring-fed river with great visibility and lots of fish.

The caretakers, Marcus and Laydee, are very friendly and put a lot of effort into making sure you have a good stay. They prepared two wonderful dinners for us on our arrival day and our last night. There's not a better view to be had in any area restaurant, and so convenient to just pop downstairs after watching the sunset from the roof top deck.

Caribean Family Dream Trip: Casa is Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
The privacy and setting are superb, as are the many features of the house and the wonderful staff, Marcos and Leydi. One of the nicest places we have been - the multi-hued water, the terrific bird-watching, swimming in both the coral formations in the bay right off the beach and the fresh water "cenote" just down the quiet road, the luxe design and spacious bedrooms. We felt safe and the close proximity to Tulum beaches, Akumal, and other lovely areas just minutes away by car was a plus.
I like to look out over the water and see the sun and sunset, and this property is S-SW facing, so the sunsets looking over the bay from the roof terrace are uniquely nice in the Riveria Maya given that most beachfronts face eastward.
Everything was as descrribed or better, and the property is new and in excellent condition. Thanks for a great week, in March '10.

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

Casa Caribbean Soul Review

  • 5 of 5
WOW! We loved our week in Tankah.The house and location were even better than we had hoped.We swam, snorkeled, and explored the bay(and cenote) on the kayaks. Took a couple of short day trips to Tulum and Chemuyil but mostly just relaxed on this beautiful property.
Could not have been better.

Fantastic Holiday. Superb Accommodation

  • 5 of 5
This house is superb. Three master suites - all facing the ocean. Beautifully decorated and equipped with more than you will ever need.
Walk a few steps to the aquamarine ocean and snorkel, take the sea kayaks out and spend hours on the water...
If you like privacy this is it. We walked down the road and swam in the Cenote - just truly idyllic.
You will not be disapointed. We loved it.
