The handmade, custom, dining room table seats 8 and the breakfast bar seats 3.

All bedrooms have private baths, large closets, comfortable beds with Serta pillowtop mattresses,and box springs and high TC linens. One bedroom is on the first floor, and can be either twins or a king, the other two are located on the second floor and have queen and king sized beds, and separated by the second floor balcony. The futon and airbed can accommodate 2 addtional people.
Designed to be environmentally friendly and not require air conditioning, the passive solar design, 9 1/2 ft. high ceilings, Hunter ceiling fans, and strategically placed, screened windows, provide soothing sea breezes along with views of the ocean and keep the house cool and comfortable. Enjoy the sound of the waves lapping on the shore, and the breezes rustling in the palm leaves instead of the hum of the air conditioner. Shaded by the native palm trees, the front of the house, and our palapa, are ideal spots for relaxing in one of the hammocks with a good book.
The rooftop features a large open area with a built-in sofa which seats 8, and has a million dollar view. Relax on the rooftop sofa with a Margarita and watch the indigenous birds and the sun set over the jungle. It is the perfect way to end a great day at the beach!
If you’ve never visited Tankah before, you’ll be delighted to find a small, security gated community with 2 restaurants, in between Tulum and Akumal.
In addition to our caretakers Ulises and Maria, who live on- site in a separate house, our American property manager lives nearby on the bay.
We have been visiting the area for over 25 years, and feel that Tankah offers the best of both worlds; nature & seclusion with nearby amenities such as shopping, restaurants and cultural sites. We have found The kayaking and snorkeling in front of the villa is some of the best in the area. We see a multitude of various fish every time we snorkel including,Queen Angelfish, Permit, Trunk, and Parrot fish.
Casa del Perro Feliz has been the home away from home for many, many, satisfied guests. We have found that the volume of repeat guests is by far the best testimonial we could ask for! We invite you to visit Casa del Perro Feliz! For more information visit our website as listed below!

Why Ann chose Tankah
We had been visiting this general area since the mid 1980's and found Tankah to have what we were looking for - a quiet area with astounding natural beauty, yet close to so many conveniences, attractions and places to visit and explore. We feel very fortunate to have a home in this magnificent area and enjoy sharing it with others who can also appreciate it.
What makes this villa unique
We love the quiet, natural beauty of our land and all of our trees, the bird watching, and our beautiful ocean and jungle views. We also love the great snorkeling and kayaking that we can do right in front of our own house, along with listening to the waves at night as they lull us to sleep.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I returned to California late last night and am currently going through Casa del Perro Feliz withdrawals. Your home is wonderful: the location, the views, the dogs, Ulises & Maria; wonderful, wonderful.
The Tulum ruins are incredible, its beaches amazing. Thanks for the tips on the best timing, everywhere we went we seemed to be two steps ahead of the crowds. We especially loved the snorkeling in Cozumel and Luca at the Blue Sky and margaritas on the beach.
Katie, Gray and I had a great vacation. Thank you.
We hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving and wish you very Happy Holidays.
Katie, Gray & Colleen
I have a crush on Blackie. That dog is absolutely adorable :).
