ELEFANTE VOLADOR SECLUDED PRISTINE BEACHFRONT DESIGNER VILLA

Tulum Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms,2 full bathrooms,sleep 7

The Elefante Volador is surrounded only by uncontaminated wild nature, 20/30 minutes drive from the 'hot' Tulum Playa . Amazing white sandy beach with nobody around.

Every object in the house has its own story and soul; it was found and brought there. The house has its own personality that you can feel as soon as you step inside. Everybody falls in love with it: once there, they never want to leave! During my first Christmas there, I fell asleep listening to the soothing ocean sounds and the smelling the wind; these memories stayed with me for weeks after I returned home.

The colors define spaces and volumes. Skilights and windows at each side, give a 360 view of the entire Sian Kaan reserve, and a small pool on the top terrace gives a breathtaking view of the nearby lagoon and towards the unforgettable sunsets.

A very big round 'palapa' is the natural continuation of the inside towards the outside, with its spacious sofas, chill out areas and open kitchen.

The sky over Tulum is a special. Some say it¹s closer to the earth. Actually, Mayan people were good astronomers! Lying down on the terrace, you feel that you can touch the stars. The house is wrapped around in natural features, and from morning to night you feel stunned by beauty.

A walk along the bay takes about one hour and a half of strolling with your feet in the water. If you prefer to be still, you can lay on the hammock looking at the waves until dusk, and then you can move on to the terrace to watch the sun disappear into the lagoon.

Herons, Pelicans, Frigate birds and Iguanas are our daily guests, as well as Panchita and Chakeron and the illustrious half-breed Mayan dogs.

From May to September, the world¹s biggest Tortoises come to lay eggs on the seashore in front of the house. We counted 24 tortoises that came to lay eggs on our beach! 15 minutes North the house you can rent a boat to visit the lagoon and watch crocodiles, manatees, flamingos, eagles and Mayan ruins.

GREAT VACATION!

Amazing house and property! Took this vacation with 2 old friends all thought it was the best vacation ever. All of us have stressful lives right now and the remote location and relaxation were just what we needed. We brought in groceries and never left. The caretakers, Felipe and Leticia, were wonderful and took care of anything we needed. Leticia cooked dinner for us every night and it was wonderful! Homemade tortillas & salsa, fresh rubia etc. Guili was super helpful as well and helped us navigate what we would need. I do agree with the previous reviewer who said it is MUCH further from Tulum than stated. The road in is really bad shape right now... if you have ever been to Costa Rica you may be familiar with roads that bumpy with potholes the size of the car. It did not bother us at all because we were content to stay at the house and relax but if you are looking to explore the area you might want to spend a few nights in Tulum playa or it just might not be the place for you. I don't know if I would bring kids or not. Maybe if we went with another family and they would have friends to play with. Otherwise they might get stir crazy. Overall, highly recommended!

Beautiful Secluded Home but NOT 20-30 minutes from TULUM, AT LEAST ONE HOUR ++

We had a fabulous time at Elefante Volador. The house is beautiful and yes, you are VERY VERY isolated. The owner is not honest in the location and how long it takes to get here. Please note the following, YOU NEED AN SUV!! The dirt road from 'Tulum Central area' to the home is horrible. It took us TWO HOURS to get in and it was late and night and dark and we had NO idea where we were going. It only took ONE HOUR 15 minutes to get out but again, only to the main area of Tulum. BE SURE to buy ALL your food in Tulum and don't plan on leaving. This way, it's not a problem. Thanks to previous guests we were prepared but I didn't feel that the owner was honest. It never takes 30 minutes! The caretakers are absolutely fabulous and cook wonderful meals. My only other complaint is all the trash on the beach. it was so sad to see this. Since there is no resort picking this up, it really shows what we are doing to this ocean. Again, the home is stunning. It's a piece of art work. It is a fabulous REMOTE get away and a very very special place. My only complaint was not accurate information. 1. Get an SUV. 2. Buy all your food in Tulum and don't plan on leaving. 3. If you do need something, the caretaker can go back for you so don't sweat it, 4. You can't buy beer after 5pm on Sundays in Mexico, major problem! 5. Plan on a minimum of an hour of a ROUGH ROUGH road, really bad from Tulum beach area/action spot to the house. Again, first time in, will take longer, it took us 2 hours and my 5 year old was MISERABLE.

Dear Giuli,

I want to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us this past week. Susana and Don Isidro took wonderful care of us and the property. That care allowed us to fully relax and enjoy the beauty you have created. What a tremendous gift.

It was fun to share with Susana that we are friends of Holly and Sean Rainey — I showed them their pictures and she soon replied, “Emily?” She remembered their eldest daughter who will be overjoyed to know that fact!

I hope that the new exhibit is a wonderful success and that we were able to meet last week. Thank you for sharing Ashes and Snow, Sian Ka’an and Elefante Volador with us.

With appreciation,
Deidre

Unique place on earth !

Hi Giuli

Elefante Voladore is a unique place on earth. We are so pleased with the location -- we are alone in the middle of nowhere. And the house is so beautiful and brillantly thought out. Do you come often? Are the dogs yours?

We leave Thursday morning. And we know that Isodro and Susanna's work are included in the price of the house -- but we are wondering what kind of tip we should to leave. How much people usually leave?

Thanks again
You are lucky to own such a special place
